It’s time. Let the battle commence: intercessory prayer for those hurting, confused, lost, seeking, or caught in the enemy’s traps. We seek God’s face, His will, His direction for His namesake and glory.


I waited expectantly, patiently for the Lord until He reached down to me and heard my cry. —Psalm 40:1


APRIL 2024


Stand firm. The enemy is on the prowl sowing chaos and lies—but God is on the throne in all His might and holiness.






We prayed Psalm 91:14-16’s promises over J.B. God has been restoring her! May He continue to strengthen her, deliver her, honor her, and satisfy her heart’s desire before Him.



His love endures forever! (Psalm 136). Some of us had received a 9-1-1 call-to-prayer for my granddaughter Kat whose ovarian cyst burst this past week. She was in terrible pain and at the ER. But God’s love and mercy covered her. She is doing much better, resting a lot, and doesn’t need the pain meds the way she did at the beginning. Please keep her in your prayers for complete healing. Thank you kindly.


#1. Brian S.

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Traveling mercies as Brian leaves for a first-time, work-related trip to the Philippines. May God’s hand cover him throughout his journeys and with God’s Word to guide his decisions on all project work. We also pray for the Lord’s protection over his family while he’s gone.


#2. Jamie P.

Exodus 13:21

By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so they could travel by day or night.

My cousin Jamie has reached a decision-making point in his treatment plan for stage 4 lung and liver cancer. May the Lord mightily show His hand and direction that’s as clear to Jamie as that pillar of cloud and fire were in guiding Israel through their wilderness journey. Lord, we seek your healing words, mercy, and will.


#3. Shannon’s Mom & Sister

Isaiah 61:2b

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

When scary challenges surround us . . . we need God’s heaven-earth ladder to raise us up. Shannon’s mom just had surgery for her stage 4 breast cancer (went well, Praise God!) but Shannon also just learned her step-sister has stage 4 cancer. Both cancer patients have added complicated health issues. May our Mighty King breathe strength within all three of these women—and may His mercies and healing reign over them.


#4. Roger

Isaiah 58:8

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.

Next week Roger is having eye surgery. His cataract is so bad that it has caused additional issues in his one eye. They believe the surgery should help correct it. May Roger find complete healing and restful recovery under the wings of our Lord, our mighty king.


#5. Joe, Jim & Dylan

Psalm 34:17

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.

Three separate prayer requests—but each needing God’s hand to usher in compassion and healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. Joe’s lame leg and health have made life difficult. Meanwhile Jim’s deep mourning for his son who died last September has overtaken him. And Dylan’s life and family are topsy-turvy, needing God’s deliverance, calm, and salvation.


#6. Amir/Miriam Tsarfati & Family

Psalm 138:7

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.

With the escalation of war in Israel, Behold Israel’s Amir and his wife Miriam now have their three adult children—two sons and a daughter—serving in the IDF. May God’s grace be shed upon them at every turn and may He comfort Miriam/Amir and their family, strengthening their faith and love as they look to our Messiah.


#7. Michael

2 Corinthians 10:4

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

Ongoing prayer for 25-year-old Michael who needs deliverance and spiritual, physical, and emotional healing. As a child, he had the joy of the Lord–but from his teens onward, chronic illnesses have stirred up anger and depression. Glorious, Merciful King, please set this captive free to worship you again and walk in your ways.


#8. K.P.

Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

K.P. is a believer, working hard to care for his wife and four children. But he needs Adonai to speak freedom from patterned behavior—smoking and occasional binge drinking—and to give K.P. rest from life’s stresses and burdens.


#9. Marian/Gene, Eleanor, Ellie

Psalm 103:13

As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

Three separate requests but family members. My aunt/uncle (Marian & Gene) are in their mid 80s and building a new home—quite the undertaking for their age. Meanwhile my other aunt in her later 80s, Eleanor, is widowed, has health issues, and needs God’s wisdom on if/when she should sell her home and move in with family. Also her granddaughter Ellie is in her early 20s and has back issues. May the Lord make His presence known in all these situations, bearing healing, direction, provision, protection, and abundant blessings from His hand.


#10. Caroline B.

Psalm 107:19-20

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.

A 70-something Caroline is in dire straits, health wise. And she and her family need salvation through our Messiah, Jesus. Recently, Caroline was taken to the hospital and put on a ventilator—and then the doctors discovered a large mass on her left kidney, suspected to be cancerous. May our King look upon Caroline and her family with mercy, bringing the salvation message to them in powerful ways as well as healing, wholeness, and comfort.
