I recently had a thyroid biopsy and feel really afraid of the outcome. I do know that God heals, but the devil is busy at work trying to put doubt in my thoughts. Please pray that I am healed and that I will not be afraid.

I have been forced to live with my mother for the past year in a horrible situation. I'm in a very bad place; I feel alone and dead inside. Please pray that I get to return to my father's home as soon as possible and that, in the meantime, God protects me from my mother's manipulative behavior and gives me the mental strength to survive.

October Prayer Requests for Living by Design Ministries

Thank you to everyone who prays for this ministry regularly. We are grateful and profoundly dependent upon your consistent prayers. Although there are many general ministry prayer requests at this time, we feel it is most important to seek prayer support in three specific areas:

Pray for Our Fall Bible Study: Our next free Bible study, "JoyFULL: A Free 3 Week Study of Philippians," will be available on November 2. Pre-registration starts on October 13. We ask our prayer community to cover this study, our promotional efforts, and every participant in prayer. The overwhelming message of this study is: Biblical joy is a gift from God. It is the result of the gospel, produced by the Holy Spirit, and strengthened by studying God’s Word. In this study, we will uncover the biblical secret of abiding joy in any circumstance. We ask for your assistance in waging a spiritual war against anyone or anything that might stand in the way of people accessing or participating in this uplifting and encouraging study.

Pray for Our Ministry Team: Over the next month, our team will be working hard to spread the message of this new Bible study. Please pray for health, peace, and protection over every team member. We also ask for prayer over the technology systems we use to deliver our Bible studies. We have experienced unexplainable technological errors in the past and, as I said above, we need to pray that nothing stands in the way of this message going out far and wide. Pray for our Pastoral Council, Leadership Team, and writing/technical staff as we work tirelessly to get this study into the hands of everyone who wishes to participate. Pray also that the Lord would continue to provide for the financial needs of our ministry in encouraging and unexpected ways.

Pray for Our Community: And finally, please pray for the people in our Bible study community. That they would embrace the message of this study and share it with their friends. That they would find the courage to participate in this study with us and that their lives would be impacted positively and profoundly. Pray that every Bible study e-mail we send gets received by the people who signed up to receive it. And pray that God would work in a mighty way to restore the joy of His people in this difficult season!

The purpose of this wall is to help facilitate a caring prayer community. Therefore, we ask that you remain courteous and thoughtful at all times. If privacy is important to you, we ask you post requests anonymously. Please, resist the urge to share more details than necessary (especially if your request involves other individuals). We reserve the right to edit requests at our discretion for the benefit of the community.

If you have an ongoing issue or are in need of regular prayer, you are welcome to submit a new/updated prayer request every 14 days. We will delete duplicate requests, even if they are submitted several days apart.

Living by Design Ministries is under no obligation to post submitted requests on our public prayer wall. Our prayer team will, however, pray earnestly for every request received (even if not posted publicly). We are not a counseling ministry and cannot offer additional support to you beyond our prayers.

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.
