Bethany, I know the stressful urgency that comes with wanting a job. May you have peace, hon. I'm praying God will provide. :inlove:

Penny, I'm praying! Feeling unwell is not something anyone cares for.

Hey friends, I know I haven't been as active and I'm sorry.
Would you please pray I can complete the remaining assignments I have without getting distracted, and also that I might trust in God more than I do. Peace has been difficult to find.
Thank you.

GJFH, I can definitely relate to that feeling! I'll definitely be praying!
"Let me get this straight. I bet all those non-friends of yours try to embarrass you about your love for that stuff, right? So, you almost feel like you have to hide your treasures away and can only take them out in secret on rainy days when your mom goes to the store to get more liver and nobody is around to berate your sensitive spirit. Is that what you’re saying?" -Jay Smouse

Definitely praying. Feel free to message me if you want to talk about it, although I understand if you don't. :)

Yo. Yesterday, on my way home, I saw firetrucks and police cars surrounding a car completely engulfed in flames (looks like it had exploded). I'm not sure if the person got out or not.

My sister posted this on Facebook yesterday. This is what I was asking you to pray about.

"B r e a s t c a n c e r. Not the words you expect to hear at 34-years-old. In those intial moments, as much as I tried to maintain composure, the voice of the radiologist quickly faded into the background, drowned out by the deafening noise of disbelief and questions, turning into thick tears, shaking, and gut-wrenching hurt. How is the happening? What? And the uber classy W.T.F.? But I'm too young. But I'm too healthy. But I have 3 kids? God what are you doing? Shock and disbelief are a gross understatement. And with losing my mother-in-law to breast cancer only 3 months ago, this cuts wounds that are still heavily grieving. But in the midst of all the questions and uncertainty, it's amazing how God can prepare your heart for something like this. Looking back I see how He placed the right words, the right understanding and the right people before us in the years, months, days, and literally minutes before we learned our life would never be the same. And in the days that have followed I continue to be reminded that God. Is. Sovereign. This is not a shock to Him.
The days ahead are scary and uncertain (Y'all ready to see me without hair?!) But one thing I am sure of is the hope I have in Christ.
God is good.
God is with me.
God loves me and my family more than I could ever imagine.
This is His story, not mine.
"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him.” - Lamentations 3:21-24
"When you feel dizzied by the wilderness, fix your eyes on God's presence. Remain upright in God's promises. May your spinning be steadied by His Almighty hand."
#SheReadsTruth"

Thank you all! My sister probably already has about four of five hundred people praying for her. Talk about turbo-prayer!

Prayers for me and my church family would be greatly appreciated. A young man in our youth group (about 17 years old) tragically died the other day. It has hit our church family very hard, especially my brother who was friends with him. He was very loved and had a heart for Christ (I served with him in our church camps) and it has devastated our church family. Please pray for all of us as well as the family of the boy. We don't know why God may take a young man like that so soon, but we trust in Him and His plan.

That's so young. Oh my word.

I'll definitely be praying for you, and your church.

Our church organist of fifty-five years is currently homebound as she deals with a benign tumor at the base of her brain and her pituitary gland, and continues to get over her weakness following a minor heart attack.

A ninety-three year old lady in our church is enduring rehabilitation after breaking her hip during a trip to Nevada.

Thank you all.

Hey, guys! I've had quite a bit going on. School, work, bills, family stress, etc.
Anyway, when I'm stressed, I physically can't bring myself to eat, thus, I have lost 20lb in the last 2 weeks alone. If you guys could pray for me, that would be great.
