Matthew J
Matthew J is a 20-year-old with intestinal cancer and has no family support, and a very troubled past.

Abandoned by his mother at age three. In financial distress, has no means of transportation, no job, and no financial or emotional support from his family. His life is on a downward spiral and he doesn't see light at the end of the tunnel.

He is attending college but found out this week that the intestinal cancer that he was treated for in the summer of 2000 has returned. He has made many costly mistakes in his life and has a hard time dealing with things he has done in the past. He is in need of financial assistance to continue college and to rescue him from the financial debt he is presently in. He needs transportation so he can have transportation to a job and school. Above all, he needs prayers for wisdom and strength to get him through all the negatives in his life. I fear that he may become so depressed and devastated that he may consider taking his own life. PLEASE PRAY FOR MATTHEW!!!

God I pray for Matthew J. trusting you to be the greater force in his life than any appearance of financial challenges or cancer. I ask that you would now pour your life-giving spirit of love through, over and around his body, causing him to know that you are all that truly exists - your love is the only thing that is real. Help him to see it now, God. Help to flick off any worries from his shoulders, knowing that you are stronger than worries. Help him to see the abundance all around him, so that his eyes do not look at the illusion of lack. Show him to road that you have prepared for his life, God, and with your grace, bring him to this place. I trust you to lift him up to the place you would have him be now. Amen.

I pray that Matthew J is still with us and is in better health and financial situation than when this prayer circle was first posted.
Please, God, watch over Matthew and bless him with the strength he needs to get through this; bless him with true friends who will help him and with skilled doctors to heal him.
I also pray that you have blessed him financially with the much-needed transportation and steady, financially viable employment.

Jesus you know what each of us need in our life, you said in your word, that if we ask, we will receive, with a humble heart and spirit I ask for mercy for all of us who are addicted, frighten and lost. You knew us before we were ever born. Our path was already chosen, if we fall short or get off track, you use that to make us strong and allow us to rediscover that we will always need you. Please read James chapter 1 verses 1-18 Jesus name I pray AMEN!

Lord remind your son, the one you knew while he was in his mother's womb that you died so he could be healed. Remind him that he is loved. You are Jehovah Jirrah his provider Thank you Jesus for his healing. I come against the curse of cancer that is upon his body, I speak to you the satan and I command you to leave his thoughts, his room, and his house. Thank you for the miracle you are going to perform.
