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.

Prayer Requests

January 8
Forgiveness. Praises. Continue to be with, bless and grow EJ and I, and the relationship we share. Build us and our foundation to last through to a fruitful marriage together. Be with our hearts and souls as we grow to be more committed to one another and build a strong relationship that can’t be broken. Quiet the scars of the past, negative opinions and energy and distraction to come between us or dim our lights. Give us stability, and emotional stability. Unspoken.

Could you pray for me for complete deliverance from a caffeine addiction for the last 15 years? I’m a chain coffee drinker, and I’ve tried hard a number of times to quit. Coffee clouds my thinking, makes it hard to filter out distractions, and it seems to drain me. Please pray for complete healing of my body and mind from the effects of this addiction. I know many people deal with much more serious addictions but I need the Lord to deliver me from this caffeine addiction, so I can build the faith and confidence to deal with the other skeleton in my closet. Please pray for total deliverance and freedom from caffeine. Thanks.
