Here we stand, Lord, ready before you on behalf of others..


Mighty King, please strengthen us, teach us in prayer, refine us amid the storm—and usher in swift intervention to bring down the raging Goliaths in our lives.


I was asleep but my heart was awake. A sound! My beloved is knocking!—Song of Songs 5:2a


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


Mid-June 2024






2 Samuel 22:2

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer . . .

He’s been on our prayer list before. Matt is bipolar with emotional issues and landed in a Salt Lake City jail last year—and recently was facing even more time, totaling 5 to 8 years, he said. It was confusing and crushing news on many levels. Then on June 13, our prayers (and tears) for God’s mercy were answered! Out of the blue he was told he was getting released that day! I have to say, I sat stunned by God’s unfathomable mercy and love.

Merciful Father, your lovingkindness is too wonderful for us to comprehend. Please keep Matt in your hand, you know his needs—especially his walking with you again, safe housing to stop homelessness, staying on his meds, restarting his disability funds.


#2. Chris’s PRAISE REPORT!

Psalm 34:17

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

In January, Chris, a 53-year-old, longtime homeless man in Ohio, was on our prayer list for stability, God’s mercies, blessings, and healing (body, mind, soul). He was doing odd jobs—even construction work from my Uncle Gene/Aunt Marian who are in their 80s and building a new home. In fact, whenever possible, they purposely are using needy workers like Chris versus hiring a construction company, so their housebuilding is about helping others along the way to have work and dignity.


Yowza! God moved on this prayer and through my aunt/uncle’s holy work. Chris and his girlfriend now have an apartment! And Chris is sharing his blessings by helping and encouraging other down-and-out people, some of who are now also working on my aunt/uncle’s house project. Blessings begetting blessings begetting blessings, showering on others.


Gracious Father, thank you, thank you, thank you! Please let your mercies and provisions and favor be on Chris and those he has blessed so they may all know you and honor our Lord and Savior, our Messiah Jesus.


#3. Gene

Isaiah 65:24

Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.

My Uncle Gene—mentioned in the prior praise report about Chris—hasn’t been well for nearly six months. Doctors haven’t found the cause—yet he continues with the housebuilding and blessing others.

Precious King, stretch out your arms and lift up Gene and Marian strengthening them, guiding them on their building project . . . and cover them with the revelation, mercies, and healing needed for every medical issue.


#4. Israel’s Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu

1 Samuel 17:45

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

The weight on Netanyahu is crushing—if it weren’t for God.


Holy God of Israel, help Netanyahu stand in faith on your majestic name, faithful character, scriptural promises, and lean on you for strength and direction. May Isaiah 43:1 come alive in his soul and throughout all of Israel’s military. May they stand on that truth, no matter what other nations say or do. Lord, you are, as promised, going ahead of Israel and you are and always will be their rearguard (Isaiah 52:12).


Please help Netanyahu and the IDF be lifted in courage, alive in hope, filled with a song in their soul based on your Word so they can run with the horses (Jeremiah 12:5)—able to excel on every war front. And may the truth of their Messiah Jesus reign in their hearts, minds, souls.


#5. Michael and parents

Psalm 6:2

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled

The battle is intense within Michael. Anger, depression, illness. He’s in a dark place that’s piercing his parents’ heart. They seek God’s deliverance, intervention, and supernatural wisdom of how to proceed.

Warrior King, please arm your servants Diana and her husband with the power and promise of Ephesian 6:10-18. Pierce through the darkness taunting Michael and bring down and cast out the Goliaths in his life so he is freed, victorious, seated in your hand, and surrounded by your holiness, comfort, wholeness, and truth.


#6. Bernie

Psalm 41:3

The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.

Bernie has had a full plate for years, faithfully rising to her family’s special needs. Now she is in need, seeking God’s timing and covering for her hip replacement surgery, his excellence and presence over the medical team, her pre-op, operation, and recovery.

Behold your daughter, Adonai, and carry her through this, wrap her in your holy tallit of healing and let her sense your presence and hear your voice in joyful ways like never before. May your Word rise within her soul, refreshing her and lifting her to a sweet, deeper love in you.


#7. Mary T’s Dad

Psalm 146:8a

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind . . .

Mary’s dad has a tumor in his lungs and may not have much time left.

Majestic King, you see how Mary’s dad needs you for his health, to calm fears, to bring comfort from the pain–but especially how his soul needs salvation. We know it is not your will that even one parishes. Please remove any hardness and spiritual blindness from his soul. Help him see, believe, and surrender to your glorious redemptive plan and eternal promises of salvation through Jesus, our Redeemer-Messiah.


#8. Kevin’s Aunt Barbara

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Barbara was in ICU for an attempted suicide. Raised Catholic, she’s a nurse but since her husband died a few years ago, she’s been depressed and on medication. The enemy has her in a grip of mourning, her hope and joy deferred.

Father, carry Barbara in your arms. Oh how she needs you and the freedom and peace you’ve given us in Jesus. Speak words of healing and hope to her soul and may your truth and presence restore her joy and set her free from satan’s hold and lies.


#9. Jamie

Psalm 138:3

On the day I called, you answered me and made me bold with strength in my soul.

You’ve been praying for Jamie and we thank you. But now the cancer treatments for his stage 4 lung/liver cancer aren’t working well and caused his recent hospital stay. He has treatment decisions to make.

Merciful Father, may your grace, favor, calm, comfort, and immense love be evidenced, palpable, and boldly believed in the crevices of Jamie’s soul. And may he rise like an eagle and find continued strength in your embrace as he seeks your will in his decision-making.


#10. Gabriel

Isaiah 30:21

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.

After our breakfast outing, my friend Sonia and I were blessed to give the Gospel to Gabriel by an unexpected move of the Lord. Gabriel is a young man from Mexico living in Vegas but has no family in town. He listened to the Gospel, took a tract with a Christian bookmark and Sonia’s most-precious gift, a Bible.

Mighty Redeemer, please soften Gabriel’s soul, protect your Word soijen and given to him, and bless him with a deep understanding of the beauty of your redemption story so he can embrace the salvation and joy in our Messiah Jesus.


#11. Brian

Psalm 107:6

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble and he delivered them from their distress.

Another young man my friend Sonia and I met on our unexpected God-ordained ministry day. Brian is homeless and wants to find his mother and get to his brother Matthew who is not well in another state. He prayed with us and seeks God’s help with provisions and in working out all these family and housing issues.

May God arise in Brian’s life in new, surprising, wondrous ways and release provisions and relational healings for his good and God’s glory.


#12. James

Psalm 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Thirty-year-old James is asking God for wisdom, direction on his life, positive changes, and deliverance for those situations binding him.

Lord Most High, you see the struggles, you hear James’s cries. Reach down and point the way and clearly set the answers before him. Teach him, mature his walk of faith in you throughout the journey so you are glorified and his joy in you is complete.


#13. Toni

Psalm 73:26.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

A senior citizen, Toni has had some increasing health challenges and is finally getting help but she’s fallen a few times in her apartment and is on oxygen 24/7. She’s a longtime Christian leaning on her King to carry her through.

Abba, please sit with your daughter, send angels to minister to her, be the breath within her lungs and her soul and encourage her in your love. May the sweet fragrance of your presence and heaven fill her home and heart.


#14. Leslie & children

Psalm 34:4-5a

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant.

A strong believer going through a challenging divorce and discovering God’s love at every turn. She’s seeking improved health, wisdom on decisions regarding her ministry work, salvation for her teen/autistic son, and protection over health/personal concerns for her young daughter.

Mighty King, please surround Leslie and her family with your goodness and endless mercies. Shine your radiant light of truth and love over them. Make your will clearly known and understood, your healing on her body complete. And please release new resources to meet every need. King of the fight, soften her son’s heart to hear your truth and your voice and not the enemy’s lies. And please keep her daughter sheltered in your arms, stilling her fears.


#15. Michelle & Jason

Proverbs 4:20-22

My son, be attentive to my words . . . keep them within your heart . . . they are life and healing to you.

They both need God’s grace, strength, mercies, and healing because of health issues: Michelle’s ongoing allergy problems (with breathing problems and extremely limited food to eat). And Jason’s weakened ankles and his need for a calmed mind, resting in God’s arms.

Father, thank you for drawing Jason and Michelle to your heart. Please shelter them, strengthen them, gird them in your love and Word, breathe your healing through them, and keep them safe under your glory wings.


#16. Anonymous

Psalm 25:6

Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.

This gracious senior citizen—a mighty woman of God—is seeking her Lord’s hand on her health issues so she can serve him more and others: arthritic shoulders, kidneys, and pre-diabetes.

Lord, envelope your daughter, restore her, revive her, bathe her in your heavenly wisdom and understanding. May your presence in her home be her constant companion.


#17. Jeff

2 John 3:2

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.

Jeff is in his early 40s with major thyroid issues—he’s had to use a feeding tube for several months and needs God’s strength and encouragement.

Lord, see your servant and strengthen him, encourage him, cover him, lovingly lifting him under your wings for assurance, hope, and healing.


#18. Avery

Isaiah 40:29.

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Avery has had quite a journey. Her past exposure to mold eventually caused auto-immune issues and diminished health, forcing her and her husband Ryan to move from the Midwest to warmer, drier Las Vegas. She still has a ways to go.

Lord God, please intervene and release your mantle of healing. And bring Avery and Ryan the beauty and freedom and truth of the Messiah Jesus, our Redeemer and healer.


#19. Nina

Psalm 31:1

In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame, in your righteousness deliver me.

Some of us got an SOS prayer request when Nina went to court recently about her divorce. Her ex is shirking his fiscal responsibilities per the agreement. Nina was advised to get a lawyer going forward.

Merciful King, our judge, our advocate, may your hand be on this, may your holy, righteous, and just ways be manifested in the court for your daughter Nina.


#20. Molly (doggie)

Psalm 145:6

You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Little Mollie has had a problem with a heart valve—but God has kept his hand on her, despite vets saying back when that she had six months to live. She’s being doing fine for a long time but now has bad teeth that need removing; however the vet won’t do the procedure since she can’t go under anesthesia with her heart condition. Her human family needs comfort and wisdom.

Lord, you look on the great and the small and are sovereign over all the earth. May your mercies cover Molly and this family. And may your love prevail over Mollie according to your will and over this family.
