I came across this urgent prayer request while searching for some information this morning and decided to reach out to my brothers and sisters in the Lord to ask you all to add this prayer to your prayers I don’t know the parents’ names, but the baby girl’s name is Charlotte.

CHARLOTTE IS THE DAUGHTER OF A MOTHER WHO APPEARS TO BE CHRISTIAN WHO KNOWS THE POWER OF PRAYER. HER DAUGHTER CHARLOTTE HAS BEEN FOUND TO HAVE A TUMOR BEHIND HER EYE (BASED ON A SONOGRAM ) , WHICH WAZ FOUND WHILE TRYING TO DETEFMINE EHY HER DAUGHTER HAS AN EYE CROSSING. . PARENTS HAVE BEEN TOLD IT IS CANCER ., AND THAT THEY DON’T KNOW WHETHER IT HAS SPREAD TO OTHER PARTS OF HER BODY.

THE PARENTS ARE BEING TOLD THEY HAVE TO TRAVEL TO AZ BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT THE RIGHT KIND OF DOCTORS WHERE THEY LIVE. (I don’t inow what city they live in) THEY HAVE OTHER CHILDREN. NO INFO WAS PROVIDED RE THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION, BUT EVEN JUST HAVING TO TRAVEL TO ANOTHER CITY CAN BE INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE (Hotels are very costly these days) . SO PLEASE ADD PRAYERS FOR GOD’S FINANCIAL AND OTHER PROVISION AND FOR THE PEACE OF THE PARENTS IN THE MIDST OF THIS VERY TRYING TIME.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO WILL BE PRAYING .

We just had a great message at church today, with encouragement to fast and pray fir our breakthrough

Nothing like hearing songs on the way home that say things like “even if some marraiges fail”, and “even if my breakthrough never comes”… “I’ll praise God anyway “ , to dampen your faith .

When you’re already depressed from seeing little to no results through 20 years of prayer, it gets harder and harder to believe anything will change. I don’t know how long my heart can take the stress and emotional pain I have to deal with almost every day because of one mistake that has lifelong consequences.

I was supposedly married to a christian ..who has since lost his faith. He goes back and forth , unsure whether God and Christianity are real. He listens to the wrong people.

Honestly I can’t help but wonder if his faith was ever solid to begin with. He said he always had doubts. How I wish he had sat under the teaching of this church I am going to years ago. Now when he does come,(sporadically and only because he knows I am sad when he doesn’t) although he does like “most” of the messages - he feels like he doesn’t belong, because his beliefs on certain things are so different.

A Missionary friend of ours apparently lost his faith too… then walked away from his marraige due to allegedly “anxiety”, only to turn around and start living with another woman, and to say that his trust is now in himself. He gave my husband a very “new age” book months before that. I confronted him with it, and his answer was that he expected him to “take the good and spit out the bones”. What good!? There was no benefit in a book that counsels you to ignore your own thoughts as if they are the enemy, rather than to take them prisoner to the obedience of Jesus Christ.

I honestly don’t know what to make of his behavior either.

It just goes to show how important it is to have those deep conversations so you can really know “ those who labor among you”. I tried to talk sense into him, I prayed for him - it was like he just took a deep dive into a pit where there was no water- he exchanged the wisdom of God’s word for a lie. I still pray for him…. was his faith ever solid to begin with? My husb said he had been “wounded by the church”. But it’s not “the church” we are called to follow and to put our utter faith in, it’s God and His Word.

People can let us down. God never will. Even when we feel like our lives are in turmoil or tatters despite our faithfulness and our prayers. It was my own lack of wisdom and failure to think and pray things through enough that brought me where I am in my life - but Praise God no matter how much pain I have to endure because of it, I still have JESUS! And there is one thing I will never do; I will never let go of my Savior and Lord, and I will never let go of His Word. He has proven Himself to me so many times.

I honestly don’t know if I will ever get that breakthrough. It is up to the individual to respond to God’s truth and grace; I can’t change my husband’s thinking or his actions.

I can’t transfer my own faith to him. How I wish I could give him some of mine through osmosis.

My heart is so broken… but I am committed to Jesus for the long haul, even if that means I go to be with Jesus someday without having ever seen my prayers for this man I love answered.

I am getting too old to be able to handle the kind of stress and emotional pain - but I may have to handle it for the years I have left despite the wear and tear on my physical heart…

PLEASE PRAY for my husband , for his missionary friend D.W. , and for me that God will strengthen me and help me to fast and pray … our church calked for fasting and praying this morning; and then I heard an okd Pastor friend call his to pray and fast as well. I don’t listen to my old firend’s sermons that often - but today I did, drawn by the title he gave it, and probably by God’s Spirit. When I heard “fast and pray” the 2nd time this morning from this 2nd source…. I knew I was hearing from God.

But it’s REALLY difficult gor me to fast… and still make meals for my household…. and all the while having to walk on eggshells in my own home, wondering when I’m going to be yelled at next for some perceived (and usually non existent) slight.

Please pray God will strengthen me and help me to fast , and that there can be a bigger measure of peace both in my spirit and in my home in the upcoming weeks. And again, please pray for my husband to come to real faith and to grow in the Lird, and to surrender both himself and his world views to Jesus. Please pray fir DW to come to a genuine faith in God, and to realize that just because some of God’s people have let him down, and just because he hasn’t been able to overcome his anxiety through God’s ways, does not mean Christianity is false. Please pray God will help him see behind the illusions and lies of the enemy, and come to true faith and repentance

Hi ! I am Tenille, In need of prayer. Me and my teen daughter Ruby moved in a new apartment and our upstairs neighbor, an older man keeps harassing us and monitoring us all through our apartment. This man cannot mind his own business. I pray God makes this man mind his own business; we're not bothering him. We stay to ourselves. God bless.
