Prayer Request Sunday

Hi sweet friends! Welcome to Prayer Request Sunday!
Today is the day that I gather your prayer you have something you'd like for me to pray for you? If you do (and who doesn't) ...leave me a little note and I will begin to cover you with intercessory prayer.
I was also thinking last night how some may not know God and how I don't want them to think that prayer is anything like witchcraft. Prayer is communication of one of God's children to their Father.
In order for us to know God, we must come to Him through Jesus (His only Son.) There is no access to God, except through Jesus, the Bible makes this clear. Jesus is our mediator, He sits next to God the Father, interceding for us, waiting to become the WAY into relationship with the Father.
John 14:6
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Me."
and look at what else Jesus tells us:
John 14:1
"Do not let your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me."
now if you are His child, adopted into His family though accepting Jesus as your Messiah and Lord...then how is this for a promise...
John 14:13
"And whatsoever you should ask in my name (Jesus), that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son."
Witchcraft is a form of manipulation- it is dark and is involved with evil. I speak of witchcraft today, because before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I used witchcraft instead of prayer to get what I wanted. I used it to control my circumstances, it had nothing to do with yielding myself before God.
Prayer is a sincere heart, humbling itself before God, asking for Him to come in Power into our lives. I just wanted you to understand what it is that I do, when you ask me to pray for you. My hearts cry is for you to know Jesus, that you too will walk away from the darkness of this world and join the family of see it is about adoption. Jesus stands waiting for you to come, waiting for you to confess Him as Lord, waiting for you to confess that you have sin that you need (that we need) for Him to cleanse us from. Call on His name, confess you too are a sinner in desperate need of Jesus our Savior-the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of this world. My dear friends, there is no other way...any other road or way leads to death and seperation-eternally from God.
Hey, if you do ask Jesus into your life...would you let me know...that would make my day. And hey, it would also set off a party in heaven, as the angels rejoice each time a sinner repents and comes into the family!
Luke 15:10
Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.

Pray for my younger sister Namrita. She is suffering from chronic migraines.The doctor prescribed her steroids which affected her adversely and she 's been quite ill and weak, though some better after prayer.

Please uphold her on prayer.

Her husband, Marak, who does not care like he should.

Her two young boys, Mishael and Rayguel.

I start a new job this week that is making me anxious.. I am trying so hard to put away those feelings. Please pray for peace. It may seem like no big deal for some people, but this is a huge transition in my life, and I am dealing with a lot of hurt and baggage from my last job which is making it difficult for me to feel secure in any position. I start Wednesday, and I am hoping that you will plead the Lord with me to keep my thoughts under control.

Kimmie, I also just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog. I love reading about your passion for adoption. It has lit a fire in me that I'm not sure what to do with yet, as I am young, but I am thankful that you share your life with all of us. It is encouraging, challenging, and just all around beautiful.
