Everlasting God, your son Jesus Christ was tried and tempted by the devil. May we never be ashamed of temptation but saved from the weakness of giving in.  Help us choose the way of faithfulness rather than popularity, service rather than fame and sacrifice rather than power.

  1. My blood pressure is too high, causing my left ventricle to work too hard. Dr. added a second BP med and was genuinely concerned. Going back Wednesday. I’d be lying if I said this doesn’t scare me.

  2. Praying for you captain kevin! ((( (Hugs)))

    Captain Kevin – My blood pressure is too high, causing my left ventricle to work too hard. Dr. added a second BP med and was genuinely concerned. Going back Wednesday. I’d be lying if I said this doesn’t scare me.

    Michael – heart aneurysm and a bad valve, bad back and neck issues.

    The New Victor – I found out yesterday that my mother was moved by adult protective services into a skilled care facility. Her mental acuity had lapsed so far that she wasn’t safe in the strip motel in which they had previously placed her, being kicked off her property (think the worst episode of Hoarders, but worse). I’m going to visit her now at the end of the month now that she’s safe and I’ll be safe from criminal accusations. God is the father to widows and orphans. She was the latter at 12 and 14, emancipated at 16. She was the former in 2003, though not in the biblical sense since she was the provider to her disabled husband.
    They’ve warned me that her mental state has deteriorated significantly. Living in a dank, damp collapsing house filled with black mould and animal waste probably contributed to her decline faster, but that was her choice. I have seen this coming for over 15 years…

    j2theperson – There’s a guy who is, wrongly, accusing our church of gross financial mismanagement if not outright illegality. There is no evidence his accusations are true and we actually seem to be on solid financial footing; however, we’ve already had at least one person leave the church because of him and there are quite a few people concerned about his accusations. Please pray he does not cause serious damage to our congregation, that people will recognise him for what he is, and that we will come out stronger for having gone through this.

    Captain Kevin – Please pray for my oldest daughter. She is separated from her husband. This is probably the 3rd time in the 3 years they’ve been married. I’m not sure who is more at fault or if there is any abuse, so I just pray for God’s will. They are believers, I think.

    brian – Not really asking for prayer just a thought. I will be getting some injections because of a back injury and will be talking with a surgeon concerning a disc fusion. My main prayer use this to help me be a better teacher and Christian, thanks.

    Captain Kevin – Asking prayer for a new pain issue. Something is going on with my jaw. Have seen 2 doctors. Dentist will need to be next. Possibilities include dislocated jaw, muscle cramps, and root infection in teeth. Hurts to chew, swallow and yawn.

    JD – Marshal whose mother told him that she doesn’t love him

    John 20:29- my cousin in barring a miracle he’s entering the final stages of his cancer… prayers have been appreciated and heard. .. They’ve brought him some good months. Jerry married his high school sweetheart and prayer for her and their 3 children (adults with families) would be so welcome now. They’ve been a close couple and now, even tho she is a Believer, she will face growing old without her life partner…

    JoelG -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.
    -My ex, daughter and I met to talk, discipline and love on our daughter. We’re all in the same page moving forward and she will be getting counseling.

    John 20:29 – 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,

    Linnea – 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

    London- my mom who had surgery for pancreatic cancer and 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.

    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.

  8. Thank you Dusty, Em, Xenia and Jessica.

  9. You are wecome Captain, but how are you and your first mate doing?

  10. My nephew has a job interview tomorrow at a place that could end up being a wonderful opportunity and career for him. Prayers for his success at this endeavor would be appreciated.
    I’m so excited for him!

  11. London…good to see you!

  12. RIP Billy. You served Him well. Rejoice in the presence of Jesus.

  13. London, praying for your nephew.

    Em, we are doing ok. I know First Mate is more concerned than she’s letting on. She texted a couple of our believing family members and asked them to pray. On Sunday, I wasn’t feeling well, so decided to stay home from church, but she went without me. That never happens.

  14. when i was 14 years old and Billy Graham was the talk of the day i thought he was a foolish showman… but by the foolishness of preaching God saves … a human being, just a man, but a good and faithful servant of the One True God – the One that he got in our faces and warned the world that we all will give account to when our days are done … RIP indeed … i think, myself, we need another Billy today…

    still praying, Captain… God give this man’s doctor wisdom this day and may London’s nephew find grace in the eyes of the Lord and get that position, i pray

  15. Praying with em for our dear captain and londons nephew
