Battle With Me In Prayer


Dear ones, you have battled with me through prayer, as I began this blog adventure. Through my struggles, the tests of my faith, the cries of my heart. As we transitioned to a new mission field, the love and encouragement uplifted me and carried me to His throne of grace.

Today i have the honor of joining you and carrying your burden, and walking alongside of you as we nail it to the cross.

Every Sunday, come. Leave me a comment wrapped in your heart's cry. I will join the chorus of intercession as our voices arise as a sweet incense of unity.

Prayer warriors, join me as we cover these requests and click here to pray over the previous requests (we had over 60).

My heart's cry is that my daughters will know God's love in a new way, chains broken, lives healed. And I pray for the middle-aged man sleeping in Golden Gate Park, the man I walked by a couple weeks ago who obviously has no home. I pray he finds a place to live and the strength to live a sober life.

My heart cries out for my sister who is trying to find her way back home. Home to herself, home to her family, and home to our Abba Father.

I pray for my aunt Diana who's battling colon cancer. My baby sister who's fighting against bi-polar. And my other sister who has numerous health issues due to domestic violence.

Thank You!

The fervent prayer of my heart has been for healing in my family - physically (devastating health problems), emotionally and spiritually.
How may I pray for you Sarah?

My heart's cry is that our family will continue to seek God first during this period of crisis and fear we currently face; that my husband will grow in his walk and deepen his faith as I have, and pray I will keep growing, dwelling on the character of my Lord and not in my fears.
In Him,
Kelly

Sarah Dawn,
I join with you in prayer for those commented above! May our Father who is, and was and will forever be, hear the cries of his children and look on us with favor.

Please pray that the Lord would provide the finances and a replacement teacher so that my family and I can join our team in Prague, our future mission field!

Also please pray that as we continue to serve Him here, we would be able to serve with our whole hearts!

TanyaLea said...

My prayer is for my dad, Randy, who just found out that his cancer cells have returned and that they have spread from his chest to his liver. He is only 54 years old. Please pray that God intervenes and dissolves this disease away, IN JESUS' NAME! <><

Debbie said...

Sarah Dawn, my heart is so heavy with many unspoken requests. One day when we meet in person, I'll share more with you.

I'm so thankful for the many prayers for my sister Christine who is recuperating after extensive eye surgery. She continues to recuperate but with much pain, swelling and adjustment to disciplined positions that are supposed to promote reattachment of her retina.

Thank you for your prayers. You have a ministry of prayer right here.

Love you,
Debbie

Hi Sarah Dawn, I'm praying for you and your family in the new mission field where God has you - that doors will open and you will used to point people to the King of craation.

My heart cries to let God use me too to bring light into the darkness and to point others to Him. Please pray I won't chicken out of publishing my book which details how far God went to pull me to Himself and out of darkness. I only want it to be used to do that for others.

Also praying for everyone here who asked for prayer. Sarah

Thanks for being a prayer warrior.

David and Sarah said...

Precious sister,

Praise God for your heart of love towards His people!

David (dh) and I both heard (separately) from the Lord last night that we are to "run" the race. No more walking. No more sauntering. Definitely no more standing still! We want to run after the the Lord for the sake of His Kingdom!! Pray that our precious Savior would continue to make this word alive in our hearts, and that we would pursue Him with our whole heart, soul and strength! For His glory!

Love to you, friend.
Sarah

Paula (SweetPea) said...

Lovely blog. Like the design, purple, your signature, and the splashin' theme throughout. Just beautiful.

Thank you for your comment and visit to my blog. I hope you will return often.

My prayer request deep within my heart and soul is for my very dead, more than six-feet under marriage would be resurrected by the power of Christ. We are both Christians but beloved refuses to have anything to do with me. He fell into satan's lies and divorced me two years ago. The covenant still in tact per God's Word, no infidelity occurred on either part, not even remotely.

Thank you for your prayers.
Sweet blessings,
Paula

Dear Hurting Ones,
There are so many requests here, I hesitated to write, but I just wanted to share these thoughts and verses with all of you, and assure you of my prayers: Though I could be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the needs expressed here, My Heavenly Father is not. He knows. (Romans 8:26) "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." He knows each lovely one of you who's hurting, taking the risk to share your heart here, and He knows those you love, and everything you are suffering, as only one Who Suffers with you could know. He knew each day of your life before one day was lived. (Psalm 139) He knows the end from the beginning. And He loves you--He is so near to you, dear one. His arms are big enough to hold you and He is powerful enough to help you and still works miracles in response to our prayers. I lift up each one of you to Our Precious Heavenly Father, Our Compassionate Lord Jesus, to hold you, comfort you, and act on your behalf and that of those you love! Having been healed of ovarian cancer 7 years ago, I have an inkling of what some are going through, and I want you to know that there is hope, and the God of all Comfort is ready to help you--I will cry out to Him with you, and trust Him to help you. These verses in Psalms 55 became very precious to me during my cancer: (Psalm 55:16-17) "As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice." (2 Corinthians 1:2-4)"Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."
Psalm 102:1-2 "(A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD.) Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily."
(Psalm 103:14) "For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust."
May God make you know that He has heard your cry, and fill your heart and soul and mind with peace,
Faithfully-yours,
Wendy

Hi Sarah,
Two prayer requests
1. For sweet little Lydia to be miraculously healed. She has been given days to weeks left to live. Her updates are here http://www.lydiaeileen.blogspot.com
Praise: She has finally been allowed to go home with her parents.
2.For Dan and I that we would hear God's will for our future. We would really like it if I could stay at home. Our main issue is not the finances, but more that I carry our health insurance.

I will lift up all these prayers with you Sarah. Thank you again for starting this.

With love,
Amber
