I have a very important unspoken prayer request. It’s personal between me and the Lord, but I need an answer to this prayer. I’ve written it out and entitled it “Prayer 1”. Please pray that the Lord will fully, powerfully and clearly answer my question in that prayer, beyond what I could imagine. I’ve had this question for a long time. Pray that many people will pray for me, for this prayer request to be answered. I believe the Lord’s answer will be life changing. In Jesus’ name. Thank you so much.

Gracious God. We love you. You are the center of our joy and the strength of our lives. We pray that you will bring men and women to a place of repentance and forgive our sins. We ask that you surround our president with Godly council and that all elected officials and world leaders will have wise counsel and have a heart for God. We ask that you will forgive the sins of our land and heal our land. Have mercy on us all. Grant us your peace and direction. We pray for revival in our hearts and churches. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the corona virus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers. In Jesus' name, amen.

Please Pray for me and Gary. I had prayed for someone like him without even knowing. We stopped talking this April. Some hurtful words were said by him. This all led from him losing his father. we met around June. he wanted me in the beginning although, He gained a lot of uncertainty with his life after his loss, even towards me. Please Pray God will restore our relationship stronger, healthier, trusting, communicating and loving. Please Pray Gary will put any pride aside and reach out to me. That he wont let any stubbornness hold him back. I feel it so strongly. In the name of Jesus. Anything is possible!
