Please come in agreement with me for my freedom from the enemy I’ve been dealing with demonic attacks. I’m sorry for my sins and my old ways and want to be a good Christian man. Pray this end so I can be a good healthy Christian. Please also pray for a legal situation in which I was falsely accused. Pray for it the truth to come out and for me to be free from it immediately. Please also pray for my family for protection and healing we are good people.

Feb 29
I am asking for prayers for my son, Jayson. He has just been diagnosed with Aggressive Frontotemporal Degeneration, a horrible disease that attacks the part of the brain controlling speech, recognition, motor skills and eventually the ability to even swallow. This disease attacks its victims ages 45-65. My son is 43 and has a daughter who just turned 7 this month. There is no cure, there is no treatment, it is an agonizing death sentence. The only hope for healing is God. He was saved and baptized when he was 12, but his life choices the past many years have not been good and I fear for his salvation. I'm asking for prayer for the Holy Spirit to draw him back to Himself and for healing. A healing so miraculous, he will have no choice but to be one of the best witnesses for the power of our God for those who are lost. Please, please pray for Jayson. Thank you
