I am kindly requesting for prayers regarding my workplace. I feel that I am surrounded by bad energy and this is affecting me personally and in my line of work. I get affected by this and I am therefore pleading with the community to pray that I don't carry this burden with me.

Pray for God’s will in my employment, I have a charge in my background, marijuana, and it from 1998. It’s preventing me from advancing in my career. I know God can break chains. I’ve changed my life, but I’m still chained to the past.

Thank you! Eli

My husband and I are newly married, and raising funds to return to the mission field (now as a married couple) serving in a sensitive country. This season of traveling so much and constant meetings with people has been rich, but also difficult. Trying to establish a rhythm of life together as well as invest enough time in our marriage to build the strong foundation necessary has been challenging. I am used to doing this process single as I did for almost 6 years, but juggling all of this along with being a new wife has been hard. I want us to be spiritually strengthened and on the same page (especially as we step into the darkness that is in the nation we serve in). I want to be a godly wife and helper to my husband. I want us to be spiritually prepared and strong so that when the enemy attacks our marriage (as he does to so many missionary couples) we will be able to "stand against the devil's schemes." Please pray that my husband and I will learn how to invest in our marriage in the midst of ministry demands. Pray that we will have a strong foundation and be in unity. Pray that the Lord will prepare us for the days and months ahead as we return to the mission field in the next 6 months.

Please pray for me. My life since childhood have been stressful and painful as I have battled depression. I have been asking God to change our home and help my family to believe in God and have faith. Now that I am away from home, my life is busy and difficult as I look for work and try to connect with others. I love my profession as a plumber so much and the Bible says in Joshua that we do what we are passionate about. Please pray for my profession, my future, and our home. I believe the Lord knows all that is troubling me and I pray that He let's His will be done as I struggle to live for Him.

First let us give the Lord thanks for the abundance of all things. Please pray that the Lord would deliver his people from evil. Pray for world wide repentance that people would turn to God. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God's will be done in the lives of the world's leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. Pray that the Lord would hear from heaven and forgive our countries sins and heal our land. Pray for the peace of Israel. Gods will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus Name, Amen.

In his book titled Prayer, John Bunyan defines prayer as “A sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart or soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God has promised, or according to his word, for the good of the church, with submission in faith to the will of God.” God promises to hear us when we pray (1 Jn. 5:15), and even when we can’t find the right words, Jesus Christ intercedes on our behalf (Rom. 8:34). Our prayers don’t have to be eloquent or elaborate, they just need to be faithful and heartfelt.
