Linda, Bonnie, and Trina,
Thank you for sharing these important prayer requests with us. It will be my privilege to pray for these concerns right now.
Father God, I come to you with a heavy heart after reading of these requests. Thank you that you already know and hear the cries of our hearts. What seems impossible to us is not for you.
I pray for Trina's daughter and this scary relationship she's in. Father, give her the courage to do what's right and walk away. Keep her safe until she's ready to make that choice. Give Trina and her husband wisdom in knowing how to help their daughter. I pray this young woman would turn to you to meet ALL of her needs.
And Father, I bring before you Rita's husband and the life-threatening place he's in right now. We ask for a miracle in his body today, Lord, trusting you as the Great Physician. Guide the doctors as they run tests and make decisions on this man's behalf. Grant them wisdom and cause them to turn to you for knowledge that is beyond their reach. Bring comfort to Rita, I pray. Surround her with people who will be supportive and loving as she bears this heavy burden.
I pray also for this precious family that just lost their wife and mother in such a shocking way. Oh God, somehow provide the peace and comfort that each one needs so desperately right now. Their grief must be doubled with the loss of the daughter six years ago. How our hearts ache for them. I know your heart aches, too.
Thank you that we can come boldly to your throne of grace, knowing that you never sleep or nod off. You are a compassionate Father and we ask that YOUR kingdom would come in each of these dire situations. We entrust our fears and concerns into your safekeeping, in Jesus' name. Amen.
