Prayer requests

These are current prayer requests. Answered requests will be announced in the weekly update and deleted from here. New prayer requests will be added as needed.

*A miraculous healing
Pray with me that my POTS be healed. Only God can do this.

I have some huge decisions to make, and it's somewhat overwhelming that it's all on my shoulders alone. Please pray for wisdom.

*Custody for my child in the divorce.
If I do not get custody, I'm not leaving. I can't imagine what he would do to my daughter when I'm not around.

*An uncontested divorce
He has said he doesn't want to fight me. I just want the nightmare to be over. Please pray that we can work things out so it's an uncontested divorce.

*Very affordable child care
Pray that the right person and I connect. I need someone I can trust without a doubt. Pray with me!

*Tutoring jobs.
I will need to buy diapers and many other things, but I have little income at the moment. I love tutoring, and it's something my health can handle, so pray that I will find more students soon.

*Good referrals
I have a tutoring job! Pray that this mom reaches out to others to tell them about this wonderful tutor who is helping her son so much. Of course, this means I'll have to be doing a good job, so pray for that as well.

*Friends in the area.
I have some budding friendships! Pray that they blossom into something beautiful!

*Friends to help me get my mind off everything
I am finding myself dangerously close to the edge of depression. Trying so hard to not go there, but the idea of being a single mom overwhelms me, even with the amazing support I receive from my family and friends. And the idea of sharing custody stops my heart.

*No depression
I really, really need to stop going towards depression. I am fighting it tooth and nail! Pray with me!

*Weight gain
I am one of the weird ones. I really need to gain weight. I am endeavoring to eat healthy while still gaining weight, but it's a steep and very difficult climb. I don't want to just load up on empty calories, but it seems that nothing's sticking. In fact, I'm still losing weight. It's time to stop being embarrassed and ask for help from my prayer warriors.

*A place of my own to call home.
Right now, I am living with my mom, and she is being more than generous, but I would love to have a place of my own. It looks like it will be at least five months.

*Relationships to grow with my mom
We've worked hard to obtain a close relationship. Pray that my long stay here doesn't ruin that.

*My husband to get help and turn his life around.
He is still excusing everything, and until he admits that he has a problem, he will never change. I truly doubt he's saved, and so does he, so definitely pray for that!!

*Me to not grow bitter.
I have a lot to take in, and I'm finding it very hard to forgive my husband.

*Peace of mind, wisdom, and daily following God.
I have had many people tell me how proud they are that I am brave enough to do what is best in this situation. They say that leaving an abusive relationship is often not done because of how difficult it is. I assure you that it is difficult. I need prayer for wisdom, peace of mind, and daily following God.

"If there is one thing I think the Church needs to learn, is that God means prayer to have an answer, and that it hath not entered into the heart of man to conceive what God will do for His child who gives himself to believe that his prayer will be heard. God hears prayer; this is a truth universally admitted but of which very few understand the meaning or experience the power."
Andrew Murray 1895


  1. I am praying for you! If you need some ideas of other ways to earn money, I have a couple that allow you to still spend time with your daughter too. I know that's kind of vague, and I don't even know who you are (so I don't know *if* you know me or not) but if you have an anonymous email address (or you could create one for emailing people personally from the blog without revealing your identity) please contact me and let me know what you need. You can email me at

    1. I sent you an email earlier today, but didn't think to thank you here. Therefore, thank you so very much for everything! I love the fact that you are praying for me and offering support! My anonymous email, as you may already know, is I must tell you that your comment brought to mind James 2:16. Thank you so much for the extra care and concern!

  2. Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

    Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

    Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    Thought I would share some of my favorite verses with you. Hope they help you to remember that you are NEVER alone... even though during times like this you feel very lonely.
    Please know that I will always always always pray for you and your family. I trust that God will bless you and keep his promise to never forsake you. God is good, and he NEVER breaks a promise.
    I am praying for you to not be depressed. I know right now you have a lot to be depressed about, but when I feel that nothing is life is going right, and the world is crashing down on me I try to count my blessings and I start to feel better. You are so blessed to be a child of God and to have your daughter with you out of harms way. I'm sure the list goes on and on..... you get the idea. Remember that I am here to listen any time you need to vent. I will give advise only if asked. I hope to hear from you soon.

    1. I so appreciate all the verses. Thank you! And I think today, I am going to sit down and count my blessings! You have certainly been a blessing! :)
