My Help Comes From the Lord, Psalm 121:2

Prayer Requests

April 18
Please pray that God will cure and heal NORMELITO, a good father and husband. For nearly 2 months, the hospitals cannot cure him. The doctors cannot figure out exactly what his sickness is. The family is now in debt because of the huge hospital bills and daily medicine maintenance. It is in God's hands now to do a miracle on him. But the family badly needs your prayers and well wishes. Thank you. God bless you all.

Dear Father God. You know the situation where I feel as if I am being bullied at home. I do not have peace at home. The quality of my life is that of a dog compared to my roommates. Father God help me differentiate from what YOU see in the situation opposed to what man is saying. I went to man, the management here, and the police. Now I am coming to you. I want the nitpicking and bullying to stop. Father God I am standing firm. I'm not running from their stones. But I need this to stop. Waiting till I get home and following me on campus. Gossiping about me to others. And then putting me in a position of defenselessness. I pray that YOU clear my name and do not let my reputation be trashed by sinners. I pray I can go away in peace.
