Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of
darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of
this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit
us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come
again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the
dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
for ever. Amen.

  1. These collects always point to Jesus as the Source of all things good and glorious. Nothing more to say than “Amen.”

  2. Will get the list up tomorrow evening. Wanted you to know im still prayjng.

  3. Thank you, Dusty, for keeping both the lists and the prayers going. You are loved!

  4. remember in prayer

    New Victor – A friend at work lost his eldest son over the weekend in a head-on collision

    Linnea – another friend, whose adopted son committed suicide a month ago, has asked for prayer for two other of his adopted siblings: Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.

    Linnea- John’s wife who is recovering from lung cancer surgery

    Dan from GA- Sad note: wife and I had to say goodbye, for now, to our dearly loved and loveable and insanely cute dog Sophie a few days ago. She was 15yrs old and getting ill alot. I know today that somewhere someone far greater than wife and I is caring for her needs.

    filbertz – the week from hell continues: one of my freshman students killed himself this morning. Devastated.

    filbertz – One of my students was evidently struck by a car at her bus stop this morning and died. Our school is shocked and grieving deeply. Prayers for her family–she was an only child and was thirteen years old

    London- my mom who is two years out from surgery for pancreatic cancer and a week
    and a half out from back surgery for three fractures in her spine.
    Caretaking is hard work at times and it seems that I lose track of time pretty easily

    the new Victor – pray for God’s protection and mercy upon my children, who’ve been through a lot, including witnessing domestic violence in the other home, and that I am strong and engaged enough to lead them so they don’t turn out like the sons of Eli. Yes, I always go worst case. I thank and praise God for that which I have been given to steward, especially my lambs.

    Bob Sweat – we are asking God to open a door to a small church somewhere in the US who want a pastor to love them and faithfully teach the Word. I have recently applied to churches in Idaho and Montana.

    prodinov –son, 5 having nightmares, I am still processing these dark attacks since they are unlike anything I have experienced. Prayers guys…it is unfair for a 5 yr old to be attacked….

    Michael, Rick, Joel, Dan, capt. Kevin, Owen – wand to hear from God in their prayer life

    JTK- I’d appreciate your prayers for an ongoing back issue.

  5. Thank you Captain Kevin, you are loved as well

  6. Praise you, Father, for your ever outstretched hand
    Praise you, Christ Jesus, for though I often offer mere lip service unaware that I have lost my way, you are faithful to find me on whatever high place I have chosen to offer sacrifice.
    Praise you, God, for your Holy Spirit who has fitted me with ears to hear
    … and a mouth to speak, but I don’t want to get into that right now…

    God, may your will be foremost in the lives of all here. Help us to keep our lamps lit.

  7. Father again I cry out with Paige for her boys. Heal the hurt inside them and let them hear Your sweet voice. Answer Paige’s cries for her sons. draw them to Yourself.

  8. amen descended

  9. I pray for complete healing for surfer51 and for Jerry. Cancer is nasty and cruel. Please cleanse them within and rid this disease from them. Help them though the many chemo and radiation treatments they need. Help them when they can’t eat cuz nothing taste good or will be swallowed….Help ease the pain and the discouragement. Give them a good healthy support system. Have mercy on them.

  10. I ask the same for Linnea’s sister and Lurkie Loo’s friend, take this cancer from them and have mercy on them. Wrap Your arms around them and let them know You are with them. Let them touch the hem of Your robe Jesus and be healed.

  11. Father touch Captain Kevin’s life. He has been a faithful servant and does not complain about the things he is going though. Show Your Mercy to him and take away the fibromyalgia, the depression and all the work loads he is carrying around on a daily basses. let Kevin have a days peace from the pain and burdens. Take it from him for good, You can, please be willing.

  12. Thank You for bringing Chester and Rocky home to their loved ones. Michael and Paige would be so sad if anything had happened to their beloved cats. protect them in the future as well. Thank You for healing miss Kitty and bella as well. You care about things we don’t think of in our day to day life. let us remember You know the number of hairs on our head, and care about the sparrow. Thank You.

  13. Be with Dan and his wife as they morn the loss of little doggy Sophie .

  14. adding David H’s Aunt Ramona to the list of those with cancer. this merciless disease is so prevalent and scary. please show Your mercy and take it away.

  15. be with filbertz as he deals with all this death around him. Help him as he struggles to help his students deal with the death of their friends. Help filberztz as he processes these deaths in light of his son’s death. He will be missing Drew for ever and these are constant reminders. Lessen His pain. Give him strength that only comes form You. Be his Strong Tower in this storm. Hold him up when he has not the strength to stand. Remind him You are by his side and holding his hand.

  16. Reading the prayers of dusty, Lord and praying these good requests with her today

  17. Hi guys I know there’s already a long list of requests but if you could remember my family in prayer as I begin the difficult road of filing for custody of my 2 younger teenagers. I found hundreds of explicit photos of my youngest daughter that I’m sure have been shared. My ex wife is clearly not as concerned as she should be as she is a Narcissist. This will cause strained relationships with kids and ex but I have no choice as I want to prevent whatever my youngest would do next with herself.

    If you have teenagers please be aware of what’s out there. I am shocked and appalled.

    Thank you all. God help us parents do the hard, right thing despite our own broken situation.

  18. JoelG,

    It’s never been harder to be a parent…prayers are with you.

  19. Thank you Michael

  20. JoelG, what a burden now – prayers are with you from up here also…
    i have a son dealing with a gorgeous 16 year old daughter who is trying to come to terms with womanhood and who is in the custody of her bi-polar mother, so i have some inkling of what you’re dealing with
    praying for all here who are parents of young ones today…

  21. Thank you Em. I’m very sorry about your sons situation and prayers going up.

  22. thank you, JoelG…. i know these prayers reach God’s throne

  23. Joel G
    Prayers are with your daughter. Praying for her safety and willingness to talk to those who can help. God bless you and your family and keep you all.

  24. Thank you much Descended. That really means a great deal to me. I was reminded yesterday that outside of a blatantly abusive situation, custody will always go to mom. However my ex and daughter and I are meeting tonight about where we go from here and we all agree on counseling. For now no phone or social media for a long long time. At the same time going to show her much love and attention. I was also able to connect with a local pastor and he is aware of the situation and prayed with me.

    Thank you my friend. This is truly a community of faith.

  25. Of course! You’re doing good. Keep having those awkward conversations.
