Prayer Thursday

Good morning Ladies! 

Thank you all so much for your prayers this past week!  If we can pray for you, please leave your prayer request in the comments below, or feel free to email me -

Here are our prayer requests for this week -

Please pray for baby Cohen's parents. You can read their story here.  I would love for you to take a moment to say a specific prayer for baby Cohen.  He is in God's beautiful hands now.  You can link up and read everyone's prayers for him today on Send Love to Cohen.  I cannot imagine how his parents feel right now.  Please pray for God to give them peace and understanding.

Please pray for my friends, April and Brad.  They had twins this, and the babies are so tiny and need a lot of love and TLC.  You can visit their page here to read about their story.  They are improving each day - please pray that this continues.

Please pray for sweet Sarah.  She is praying and waiting for God to bless her with a true Godly man that could be a wonderful influence to her young son to share their lives with.  Her testimony is so beautiful, I felt inspired just reading it.

Please pray for the oil spill.  That it will be resolved in the best way possible, protect our oceans, beaches and animals. Please pray for the families of those that lost their lives in this disaster.

Please pray for my sweet friend Jackie.  She is pregnant with quadruplets!  You can read about her journey here.

Please pray for my Daddy's (Jerry) job search and that his good spirits continue.  He did not get the job offer that he has been interviewing for for months, and I know he is disappointed.  I just know God has the perfect plan for him.

Please pray for my Grandparents, Ed & Helen.  They are having some health troubles, and my grandmother seems like she is suffering from depression. 

Please pray for little Jed Harper.  You can read about his story here.  What a beautiful family turning their sweet son's health over to God.  They are truly inspiring.

Please pray for my Pappa.  It was about this time last year that he and my Daddy made some very difficult decisions regarding her care.  She passed away almost a year ago, and I know he is struggling with all those feelings.  It would mean the world to me if you could please lift him in prayer over the next month.

Please pray for my friend Pam's daughter, Julie, and her husband.  They are moving across the country, and looking for new jobs!  Please pray for their move and their job searches.

I have been following Lianna's blog for a few months now, and she just seems like the sweetest girl in the whole world!  She and her husband are waiting for God to bless them with a child.  You can read about them here.  She will be having surgery soon, please pray for her doctors and that God will guide them during their decision making process.

Please pray for all the beautiful wives participating in the Completing Him Challenge.  I have read about so many amazing women that are praying for their husbands this week.  And, in light of our challenge this week, could you please say a sentence prayer for my marriage?  Thank you!

Thank you so very much for all of your prayers!  Please let me know if we can pray for you!

I am new to your blog, but love how you do a day all about prayer! There is such power in prayer!! I feel bad for asking this, because of all the bad in the world, happening to those close to us and those we don't know, but I would be so thankful if you wouldn't mind saying a prayer for me. I have been praying that God would bless me with a true Godly man to marry and to share my life with. One that could be a true influence to my 5yr old son on what it means to be a true man of God. I know all things happen in God's timing, but I also know there is power in prayer. Thank you very much and may God richly bless you for what you are doing with your prayer ministry through your blog. God Bless~Sarah
