Request a Prayer from the Avera Prayer Line

My Help Comes From the Lord, Psalm 121:2 

The Avera Prayer Line offers you the ability to pray for others or to post a prayer if you are in need of prayer.  Our prayer line is connected to the prayer ministries of Avera's sponsors, the Benedictine and Presentation Sisters.

Please pray for all those suffering from broken homes, especially the children. Keep my children safe as they travel and free from manipulation of their parent. Keep us healthy, free from temptations, and put godly people in our path. Holy Spirit, inspire my family members to know what your will is for their lives. Hold my sister and unborn baby in the best health throughout the rest of the pregnancy. Be with my parents as they deal with work stress. Thank you.

I am asking for prayers for Frank's teenage son, Trent, who suffers from depression, and for Frank, the father of my unborn baby daughter. I ask that God heal his depression, show him direction, open his heart to love, and give him the courage, strength and wisdom to get the help he needs to straighten out his life. Remind him of his purpose and lead him down the right path. Show him the way to Jesus and allow God's Will to guide us. We love him and we need him in our lives.
