I have lung issues and had neck surgery 2 1/2 years ago. My surgery has left me with so much pain and spasm and it triggered breathing issues. I love to sing, but singing makes my chest hurt. I'm clinging to God, taking care of my autistic son, and trying to accept the things I cannot change, but wish I could sing. ️

Please pray for Doug Walker, who was seriously injured in an accident. He is self-employed, with a wife and 3 children. It could be upwards of 8 months before he is mobile again. Pray for his healing, pain management, and that this would be an opportunity for him to be receptive to the gospel.

Please pray for my best friend, Dottie. She is fighting cancer and has had surgery, chemo, and radiation. Most of her stomach and esophagus were removed and cancer was in 5 lymph nodes. I have been talking to her about Jesus. She has faith but is afraid. Pray for healing, but also for peace. Pray for me that God continues to give me the words for Dottie and that I can be strong enough for her on her bad days and through her fear.

I ask for prayer for the Lord to provide my mom and I a house or duplex. We have been moving a lot for years and been homeless twice. We would like to settle in a place without having to worry about moving again.

I have been delivered from a lifestyle that involved witchcraft and the new age; however, my family is in need of a home. The uncertainty of still not having a home is something that the enemy has been using to weigh me down and make me feel hopeless. This has made me feel as if I am going backward instead of moving forward. Please pray for me.
