The Lord our God is One. Blessed is his name, righteous are his ways.

 

Holy King, we are here, your bondservants, standing on your eternal promises, carrying these names and needs before your glorious throne.

 

May you watch over them and magnify yourself in each one and may your will be done—in their lives and in ours.

 

And may your mercies be shed from your throne onto the US, Israel, and the world in this most troublesome hour. Thank you for your grace upon former President Trump . . . May his soul be brought to new depths in you for your Name sake and glory.

 

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. —1 Chronicles 29:11

 

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

 

WEEK of JULY 14, 2024

 

15 PRAYER REQUESTS

 

#1. James. J. (and cousin Jake)

Deuteronomy 30:6

And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart . . . to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

James J. was on our prayer list for salvation in March and then in early June (special SOS text) for God’s mercy on his health (a bad vehicle accident that could have paralyzed him). Some of you already know that our King shed his grace over James (he’s walking and humbled by it)—but now James is going to church with his brother.

Thank you, our Mighty, Mighty Redeemer! Please continue to draw James into your salvation and love—and help him lose any desire for the worldly TV shows, etc. he watches that might compromise his walk with You. Also, we lift up his cousin Jake who needs the redemption power of the cross, found only in Jesus our Messiah.

 

#2. Cristina & Maria in Spain

2 Corinthians 1:3-4a

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation . . .

Cristina battles with MS but also recently had COVID and a broken wrist. Compounding things, her daughter Maria is deep in depression.

Precious King, you who searches our hearts, hears our cries, and rejoices over us with songs of deliverance, please release encouragement and healing to Cristina and lift and cast off the dark cloud of lies and hopelessness surrounding Maria, replacing it with your Holy Spirit, our comforter, the carrier of your Word, counsel, guidance.

 

#3. LeeAnn’s Family

Acts 16:30-31

And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

A sister in the Lord, LeeAnn has been called up to glory and now resides with her Savior King. But her family—husband Michael and daughters Ariel, Kira, Bailey—are unsaved.

Adonai, reveal your greatness in your Word and surround this family with your truth so they may have the eternal comfort that can only come from your presence through the King of kings, Jesus.

 

#4. Patty

Hebrews 10:25

Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

A Christian, Patty hasn’t been to church/fellowship for awhile and is missed.

May the Lord call her back into the fold so she can be strengthened in his Word and joyful with his people who love her.

 

#5. Gaby

1 Thessalonians 5:3

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Maria’s niece recently had a hysterectomy and needs the Lord for salvation and her full recovery.

May our great Healer walk beside Gaby and impart his love, redemption, truth, healing so her life is overflowing in him.

 

#6. Maria R.

3 John 2

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

Maria has walked the long, wonderful road with her Savior but has health concerns.

May the lover of her soul cover her, speak deep and hidden things to encourage her and heal her fully so his Name is magnified.

 

#7. Hannah

Psalm 121:5

The LORD will guard you; he is your shadow, he is by your right hand.

A junior at UNLV and on their swim team, Hannah has a series of health issues with no solid treatment plans, from hyperthyroidism and exhaustion to headaches and passing out.

El Shaddai, Mighty God, please reach down and cover your daughter Hannah, reveal what lies beneath and behind these medical problems and pave a clear path of wisdom of how to handle them and heal them—whether in the natural or your supernatural intervention. All for your Glory!

 

#8. Marcus

Ephesians 3:20-21

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Marcus is seeking solid, fiscally viable work opportunities so he can contribute more to the household shared with his brothers.

Abba, all things are within your power, within your right hand, flowing from your lovingkindness. Please open the floodgates for Marcus, giving him the resources and abilities to cast his net wide and bountifully.

 

#9. Bonnie & Maggie

Psalm 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.

For a long time, Bonnie has been suffering every day with pain and difficulty sitting/lying down and walking (even when using a walker). She’s patiently believing God for relief and healing. Meanwhile her 17-year-old daughter Maggie (Down Syndrome) has a sleep disorder and other health issues. Both are traveling to Salt Lake City for a week on July 17 to see specialists and praying for God’s lead and grace.

Adonai, your Word is truth, your promises eternal. Please give wisdom and understanding to the physicians/medical team and reveal what you want done for your glory and Bonnie’s/Maggie’s good. May you cover them and their travel-companion Sonia with your protection and mercies.

 

#10. Anonymous

Genesis 22:14

And Abraham named the place, The Lord will see, as it is said to this day: On the mountain, the Lord will be seen.

Please lift up this sister in the Lord. Besides her health concerns (arthritic shoulders and pre-diabetic), she’s seeking the Lord’s provision for her car repair. She’s in her 80s and needs her vehicle for work.

Yehovah-Yireh, the Presence/the God who sees, please rise up and show your daughter the things she needs to know, see, understand, receive . . . and, please, may your Chesed (lovingkindness) release the funds from many or one generous direction to cover every need.

 

#11. Leslie G.

Jeremiah 18:1-3

The Lord said: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel.

Seeking God’s favor and direction on her calling and full-time ministry potential in her teaching field. Many life-changing events occur this month for her.

Merciful King, may you arise and your enemies scatter . . . so your daughter is carried in your arms, seeing the deliverance and provisions of your loving hands and witnessing the call you’ve placed upon her life. May your promises be lifted up and your Name blessed.

 

#12. Colodisha

Psalm 83:18

Let them know that You—Your name alone is the Lord—are the Most High over all the earth.

A strong woman of faith, Colodisha is finalizing her memoir/testimony book while obediently waiting on the Lord for his next move in her life.

El Elyon, we ask that every detail is done to your will and glory—and that you will make things clear so your daughter knows the when/how/what of your “soon” shifting and that her testimony will bring many to your Kingdom.

 

#13. Trevor

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He causes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

This 16-year-old faces many challenges and is headed to Phoenix Children Hospital soon. He and his mom need a mighty move of God to sort through it all.

May the Most High God cover them with shelter and grace, ushering in healing, physically, mentally/emotionally, and spiritually through Jesus, our Great Shepherd.

 

#14. Serene

1 Peter 5:10

But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

Adonai, may you stretch out your tallit over Serene’s life, every nook and cranny, reviving, restoring, and blessing her health, finances, familial relationships, and bringing forth the creativity and memories for her book’s development–and may everything be for your glory.

 

#15. James W. & Alexandria

1 Timothy 4:10

For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have set our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all mankind, especially of believers.

Thirty-year-old James is a believer, seeking to do right before the Lord and mature in his faith. His long-distance girlfriend has had a difficult past (drug-related) and in a dark environment needing to be set free on several levels.

Abba, we know that you and you alone are the God of change, the God of restoration, the God of eternal freedom in Christ Jesus. Please have your way in this relationship and these two souls. May they hunger for you above all else. O King, please reach through the hardships, miscommunication, darkness, and confusion to bring forth your Light that demolishes the enemy’s handiwork and births your beauty and strength from the ashes.

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

Mid-June 2024

 

2 SPECIAL PRAISE REPORTS

20 VITAL PRAYER REQUESTS

 

#1. Matt’s PRAISE REPORT!

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.
