Prayer Requests

June 8
Please do agree with me in prayer on the following situation which is similar to what Moses faced at the sea - I am believing like Moses that a way be opened, where there is no way through the sea, and that the Pharoah and his soldiers will be taken care of by the Lord, and that everyone with me will cross over to the other side with all the wealth that was given by the Egyptians and on to the promised land without wandering in the desert and immediately taking possession of the promised land. That we are always caused to triumph in Christ Jesus, I receive this victory in agreement with you right now in Jesus name.

My mother , name - Muan from India , is suffering from HIV, pneumonia and Diabetes and currently in the ICU of a hospital. It has been 4 days since she has been admitted . I ask that you pray for the healing of my mother. She is my only mother and has raised me up pretty much on her own. It has always been just the two of us supporting each other. I cannot bear to think of what will happen without her. I love her so much and do not want to live without her. So I request you to please pray as much as you can for my mother to get better. I believe in the healing power of God and it is said that when more than one person prays for something, God will surely grant it. So I pray that she will be healed by our Almighty Father and be washed clean by the blood of Jesus our Savior. So please pray for my mother's healing. Pray that God will show His love and mercy for my mother and me.
