Of course, we will agree with you in prayer for your son!

Father God, You lift up all who are bowed down. You heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. You are our Mighty Deliverer and Great Provider who supplies all our needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. We come boldly to the throne of grace in time of need.

In Jesus' Name, we lift up our precious sister's son Mike to you for healing in his body, mind and emotions; we lift up his need for a good job with good benefits that will use the skills and talents You have blessed him with; we lift up his need for good health insurance, Lord.

Father, in Jesus' Name, we THANK YOU for hearing us as You always do, and for answering our prayer. We thank you for healing Mike in every part of his body and mind, and for healing and restoration in his job search, finances and every situation he is facing. You are greater and mightier than anything that can come against him, and we call for every evil and negative circumstance to be cast out of his and his family's lives; we rebuke every attack of the enemy against him, and we command the enemy to leave. We call forth Your healing, and finances and provision from the north, south, east and west to come to him now.

We declare that Mike and his family are blessed, that all their needs are met, and You, Lord, reign supreme over every circumstance in their lives. We trust You Lord to take care of Your own, as You have told us to cast our cares on You, and so we praise You for it, in Jesus' Name. We declare Your promise in 2 Corinthians 9:8 over them, which says, "And God is able to make all grace (every favor and [a]earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]." Amen.

My son Mike has need for a good paying job with benefits. He has acid reflux very badly. Pray that GOD will touch his body and heal him. he also fights depression, and hasn't had health insurance for 5 years or so. We all (me, my daughter, her dh, 2 yr. old daughter and in the womb baby, including my son) moved here to Louisiana to be close to his 12 year old daughter, Adie.
Thank you for praying with me. God is who I turn too when I have a need, and His people.

Kim, I also am agreeing in prayer with you for your daughter. Father God, we lift Kim's daughter up to you, and we commit her to Your care. We ask in Jesus' Name for all to go well with the surgery... that you would keep Kim's daughter safe throughout, that You would guide the doctors and nurses and attendants so that everyone does everything exactly right. We call for an immediate, speedy and pain-free healing for her daughter. We command all post-surgery inflammation and swelling to subside quickly, and for a soothing and strengthening throughout her body. We call for all nurses and orderlies to be gentle and responsive to her daughter's needs while she is under hospital care. We thank You, Father, for hearing and answering our prayer, in Jesus' Name! Amen!

not sure if this is the right place but I have a prayer request. My daughter is having knee surgery tomorrow and I would be very thankful for prayers for her. She is 17 and has a soccer injury so she has to have this in order to get to stay in soccer. We are praying for the dr and for a fast fast painless as possible recovery! She will miss a week of school and has always has perfect attendance so she is totally bummed about that.

Great insight, Karen! I have experienced firsthand the provision of our God over and over again, even as recently as in the last few days. It is true that if God be for us then who could be against us! He constantly amazes me at the miraculous provision that He makes for us. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Tonight, as I was reading the Word, the Lord showed me something that I never noticed before. I was reading in John 21. The chapter goes like this:

21 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: 2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. 3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”

They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately[a] got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?”

They answered Him, “No.”

6 And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.

7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea. 8 But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish. 9 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.”

11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.

As I read, the Holy Spirit pointed out these insights to me:

The disciples were busy in their own efforts (fishing) to provide for themselves and their families. They worked all night and caught nothing. They did not recognize Jesus on the shore. Then Jesus called out to them, asked if they had any food, and upon their negative response, instructed them to cast the net out again, and the haul of fish was so full and heavy and overflowing that the disciples had difficulty drawing it in.

Upon this miraculous provision, the “disciple that Jesus loved” (who we know to be John) immediately recognized that it was Jesus on the shoreline. He said, “It is the Lord!” Why?

It wasn’t just that they had a fantastic haul of fish. It was because John recognized the heart and love of Jesus. This passage shows us the love and generosity of our God. The Lord is generous. He is a provider; He meets our needs and He is not stingy about it. He did not supply the disciples with a small portion of fish just enough for that day, or even that morning. Instead, the net became so full of fish and weighed down - the Bible says it was "full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken" - that the disciples had trouble bringing their haul to land!

4) When the disciples reached the shore, dragging their nets full of fish, the Lord Jesus had breakfast already cooking and waiting for them. What a tender display of love for the disciples! They had worked hard all night. They were probably tired, sore and hungry. They still had work to do with the nets they’d brought in. Yet they didn’t have to wait to cook a meal for themselves. Jesus had the table set and waiting for them.

This is heart of the God we belong to. The God Who is for us. He is the Lord of all Who loves us, looks after us, cares for us, heals us, and provides for us.

I also noticed how in that passage in John 21 that when Simon Peter realized it was the Lord, he jumped into the ocean to head toward Jesus. This made me think - who’s the first one we run to in the midst of whatever “ocean” we find ourselves in? Who do we run to when we have a need, problem or lack in our life? Do we run to Jesus? Or do we think He’s too busy for us? Do we think He doesn’t care? Have we given up because the trial we are going through has lasted too long? Don’t give up!

Wherever you are and whatever is going on in your life, let me remind you to look for Jesus. Keep your eyes on Him and keep heading toward Him. Recognize His love and generosity toward you. It doesn’t matter if you’ve let your eyes wander elsewhere for a while – just get them back on Jesus! He will not let you down. He will not let you sink beneath the waves. He will not let you go hungry. You are His precious child and He loves you.

Be blessed as you go into your day and know the Lord is with you wherever you go! emoticon emoticon
