Touch her grandmother with Your healing grace and, if it is your will, heal her from the cancer that has invaded her body. Keep her free of pain and give her the strength to fight this battle. Lord, I ask You to touch the very soul of this father and remove any and all need to find refuge in alcohol from him.

Lord,
I understand somewhat the fear Portlandlady is feeling over finding a job. It is scary to be unemployed during this time, so I ask that You guide her feet along the pathway which will lead her to a good job where she is stable and spiritually content. Give her the patience and the heavenly wisdom to wait for things in Your time, and to not get discouraged when things don't seem to be happening when she thinks they should be. ;)
In Jesus' name I pray, amen

Heavenly Father, I ask that You open many doors for Anne...doors that will lead her to a good job so that she can help provide for her family. We thank You father, for her loving husband and the fact that she has a roof over her head and is safe and not hungry in these difficult times. Father, touch the heart of her father who fights a terrible battle everyday with alcohol. Give him the courage to admit that he has this problem and the committment to fight his addiction. Father, watch over Anne's grandmother as she undergoes treatment for her cancer. Keep her free from pain and surround her with the love of family and good friends. Father, please ease the burdens of this family. Keep them strong in the face of adversity. Give them peace, Father. Amen.

Lord,
Thank you for these prayers from complete strangers. They always seem to come when I need them the most. Of course you are always there, I just need to open my heart and listen.
Thank you Lord for everything that you have given me. A wonderful husband and loving family, plenty of food and shelter. It's hard to remember that I have so much compared to so many.
Please be with my grandmother now as she is going through her chemo. Help her to be strong. Please bless all those who take care of her and my grandfather on a daily basis.
Bless my father who struggles with a horrible disease and has no idea how it affects my mother or my siblings and I.
Lord, Please bless me and those like me who are struggling right now financially and with self worth. Please open a path to employment. In your name I pray. Amen

Dear Portlandlady,
I will include you in my prayers. I have prayer warriors here at Beliefnet such as Marahet, Carefree, and faiths_fire7. I have seen their prayers for you,and I am right here also for you.
I understand about the alcoholism. My husband has been in AA for almost three years now. This was a blessing that he even went and is following the plan. I know how it can destroy lives. I also had a sister that began to drink a lot years ago, and in 1996 she killed herself because she found out she was very ill. I will pray that the Lord heals Anne's grandmother.
As for your unemployment situation, I understand that too. I was let go of a job 3 years ago, and the one thing that I learned from that, was to never ever let depression rule over you. You have to take care of yourself! A job will come to you in God's plan. my motto is let go, and let God.......Peace to you!!!!

Lord,
Thank you for these wonderful women! What a unexpected blessing they have been. Thank you marilynangel for your prayers. Lord, please be with my father right now as he struggles with the death of my grandfather. During christmas I think it is even harder for him to cope with his death and because of that drinks even more. Lord, please help him to realize that drinking is not a solution to the problems he is trying to deal with. Please be with my grandmother who is in the hospital now because of a blood clot in her leg. Help her to recover so she can continue with her chemo treatments. And Lord please open up an avenue of employment for me. Help me never to lose sight of what is important. In your name I pray. Amen.

Dear Jesus,
Please guide Portlandlady down a path that will lead her to a job that will fulfill her financial and spiritual needs. This is all happening for a reason, because You have a better idea in mind, and please help her to see that during the moments when she is feeling depressed. Help her to deal with the stress of her grandmother's illness, and her father's addiction. Please dear God, help her father to break his addiction to alcohol. Open his eyes to how it hurts not only his body, but his soul and the spirits of those around him. Please heal her grandmother and help her to regain her strength. Help Portlandlady to never lose sight of what is important. :)
In Jesus' name, amen

FAther, we ask that You welcome Portlandlady's grandfather into Your kingdom where he is free of all the earthly ties that bound him. Let him watch over his family from above and keep them safe. Bring his son some peace in knowing that his father is no longer suffering and is not alone, but is at peace with the others who have gone on before us to prepare our heavenly home. Father, place Your healing touch upon this grandmother and rid her body of the blood clot that threatens her health right now. Father, we ask that, if it is Your will, this grandmother be healed. Father, please lead Portlandlady to the avenues that will lead her to a satisfying and decent paying job...these are difficult economical times and we are all struggling, but we know that You will never give us more than we can bear, even though the burden seems so heavy at times. We trust in Your wisdom, help us to accept Your time. Father, thank You for the blessing of "knowing" Portlandlady and her family. Amen.

Thank you marahet and faiths_fire. You don't know how much your prayers mean to me at this time as my family struggles. Lord, my husband's grandfather is dying. Please help him make the transition to you a peaceful one. In your name I pray. Amen.

Dear Portlandlady,
I am ever so sorry about your husband's grandfather. This is a passage from the Bible that helped me with the death of my sister, mother, and father: I hope it will make you feel better, as it does me.....
For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. * Psalm 48:14
My prayers are with you....In Jesus' name I pray......Amen


Marilynangel
12/16/2001 21:40

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I find peace during trying times by reading the Bible. After my sister died, I could have burned the Bible, because I was angry with God. I had to realize it is not his fault. I came to realize that he is there for your needs.
Portlandlady this is one of my favorites: Then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. * Psalm 91:10,11......Peace and faith....In Jesus' name I pray....Amen

Portlandlady,
I love this quote I found from a book. I just found it this morning! I can't tell you how many times I'm going to be praying this prayer! :) I hope this prayer will give you the strength you will need to face each day, one moment at a time.

"...We have been programmed to think, I know I am going to sin, to fail...to fall short today. You have not been programmed to yeild yourself unto God as those who have power over sin...

How much better to begin each day thinking victory, not defeat; to awake to grace, not shame; to encounter each temptation with thoughts like,

Jesus, You are my Lord and Savior. I am Your child--liberated and depending on Your power. Therefore, Christ, this is Your day, to be lived for Your glory. Work through my eyes, my mouth, and my thoughts and actions to carry out Your victory. And, Lord,do that all day long."

(from The Grace Awakening by Charles Swindoll)

Father,
Please ease the pain of Portlandlady's grandmother and her husband's grandfather. Please open her dad's eyes to the harm that he is doing himself and his family through his addiction to alcohol. Father, let Your loving spirit heal them all from their afflictions. Guide Portlandlady's footsteps as she looks for a job. Lead her into a job that will be financially and spiritually fulfilling. Give her hope, Christ, and the peace and joy that only You can give.
In Christ,
amen

Lord,
Todd's grandfather is with you now. Please keep him in your loving arms. Maybe he and my grandfather can become good friends. Please help my husband's family as they struggle through this death. Although it is the best thing, it is hard with christmas right around the corner. Please keep us safe as we travel to the funeral and back home for christmas. Lord, please be with our family now. Help my father with his addiction. Help me find a new job in the new year. Thank you Lord for these wonderful women you have put in my life. In your name I pray. Amen.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year marylinangel, faiths_fire, and marahet!
