    My husband and I got some bad news a couple weeks ago about our baby, I am 21 weeks pregnant. Just yesterday we found out they are pretty confident its a very large teratoma on the top half of her brain that is pushing the rest of her brain apart and to the side. It is keeping her brain from forming properly. It is not a cyst as they first thought, as it is not just fluid but matter in there as well and there appears to be blood pulsing through it. We are going for a MRI in a couple weeks but we have read that they really only do that to help with counseling the parents. When I said abortion is completely off the table he gave us two option. They can do surgery after she is born but no baby has survived the surgery for a teratoma of this magnitude. Or they can do comfort care. They said its completely up to us and we aren't ready to even think about either of those. Right now we are praying and believing in God to remove her teratoma and restore her brain. We know he is her only hope and we know he is bigger and greater than all this. We know he loves her and is with her and we know no matter the outcome he knows whats best for her. We just pray that he doesn't take her and he lets us raise her and see her grow up. We are believing that when we go for the MRI the tumor will be gone and everything will look perfect. Please help us pray for her. Her name is Emily Hope Nielsen.

    Please pray for my friend Wendy (single mom- 2 kids girl and boy) She has fought Breast Cancer 4 times now (chemo/lost her hair) and yet is a fighter and never gives up. She has had most of her insides removed and now is scheduled for surgery on Thursday to place a rode in her leg from her hip down as her bones are fracturing. She is also in so much pain. Wendy asked the Lord into her heart last year, thankful. Please pray for Wendy and her family. The cancer continues to spread throughout her body but we are praying for a miracle and truly trusting Jesus with her life. God is so good and we give Him all the praise, honour and glory. Thank you for your prayers.

      @Richmond, BC I also pray that the doctors will give her more pain relief.
      For cancer, it is usually available via prescription and complementary medicine.

    My daughter, Aimee' Yu needs prayer desperately. She became involved with a criminal and has not left him. He has also abused her emotionally and mentally and she had a terrible miscarriage in November. He is in jail. She once gave her life to Christ. Please pray for her to turn back to Jesus. I also pray that she is reunited with her husband, David. They are separated and are still friends. Please pray for her for an extended amount of time. I know God hears our prayers and knows what tomorrow will bring. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. She has never before been in any trouble. She has also lost her job. She will be 36 in July. God bless you.

    PRAYER REQUEST: SONS MUSIC CAREER
    I am a musician dad of three adult sons (age 20, 23 & 29). They’re all musicians but the two youngest are in a career oriented original band together. They write, play, sing, record, manage and promote the outfit. I may be a bit biased, but I can see that they are way more than gifted. We raised them in a believing household & Christian school where I prayed and repeated scripture over them every day (which I still do) so I know they carry what you could call The Anointing, and The Blessing. Although this is the case, and because I have a lot of age and experience, I can see that a number of issues are holding them up and diverting their energies away from their successful music career goal. I have listed them here as briefly as possible in the hope that you might take some moments to share the prayer load with me. If you would be so gracious, the prayer points are:
    1. (3rd son) needs to start university. He already has a music diploma so only needs 2yrs uni . . . even less with exemptions. He is a music prodigy on a number of instruments so university would open up a world of resources ie: recording gear, programs & production ideas; and most importantly, other motivated young people actually there to do the same thing . . . a continuous audition; a pool of potentials!

    2. (2nd son) needs to finish university (only 3 music composition units to complete).

    3. MENTOR: They desperately need to get crucial career input from a top musician producer industry identity about aiming way higher; instrumentalists they need on stage; simplifying & broadening their sound, not mimicking their hero’s version of it; as well as media & promotions readiness.

    4. TEAM: To move ahead, they must procure highly self-motivated uni-trained, skilled multi-instrumentalists (eg: keyboard / program operator) and at least one secondary lead vocalist. Their current not-so-skilled guys could move to ancillary positions (drivers, luggers, roadies, “merchers”, stand-ins, etc).

    - Sorting Points 3 & 4 would almost certainly make them “major recording label & management ready”.

    5. DISTRACTIONS: But, instead of having Points 3 & 4 done, they’re caught up with too many transitional non-achieving, time-wasting entourage people. This robs a lot of their life energy, resulting in a series of confusing slowdowns and unpredictable diversions away from the original plan. They’re young, so clearly loneliness drives the need for company, but unrestricted, this is draining.

    6. OPERATIONAL & RESIDENTIAL BASE: This issue continues to come up but is really another distraction which could be resolved after university start and, because they have already attended tertiary studies at Newcastle, NSW Australia, only around 90mins south of us, this would prove easy to re-attend from home again. Also, Australia’s largest city of almost 5 million, Sydney is only 2¾hrs south.

    As mentioned, I commit much time to prayer & The Word so I realise this is a spiritual battle. In fact, just today I have been reading & praying through:

    • 2 Cor 10: 3-5 (AMPC); . . weapons . . for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, . . refute auguments and theories and reasonings and . . proud and lofty thing that sets itself up . . every thought and purpose . .

    • Eph 6: 10-18 (AMPC); as well as

    • 2 Kings 4: 1-7 (NLT); desperate miracle selling of (anointed) oil with parent & sons involved, and

    • 2 Kings 4: 8-37 (NLT); desperate miracle intervention when tradition, lack & blindness getting in the way of raising son ( . . . “Why go today?” . . . “It is neither a new moon festival nor a Sabbath”. And “ . . . the LORD has not told me what it is.”).

    Thank you in advance for your considered prayer at this time.

    Hello,

    Please pray for my son. He is in Grade 9. The teachers at the school are giving him a hard time. He is eager to learn. When he asks questions he gets yelled at. He tries out sports teams at his school. The coach by-passes my son and selects other players to be on the team who don't have a clue what they are doing. The other students say that my son is a great player and also wonder why the coach doesn't select him. My son gets harassed by other students. When he complains to the councilor in charge of bullying, my son is told that he is weak and gets blames for starting the bullying. Lately, my son has been sick because doesn't want to go to school. The teachers, councillors and even the principal is treating my son harshly.

    He is a good student. He is athletic. He doesn`t hurt anyone so why is he being treated like this ? ? ?

    Please Please Please pray for my son ......

      @Meena Yes, Meena, we will pray for your son.
      My daughter went through similar experiences when she was in high school. Unfortunately, teachers and students both seem to blame the bullied student, rather than punishing the bully. It is against the stated rules, it is wrong, it can be awful for the bullied student.
      We dealt with it in a number of ways, suggestions for you:
      1) A different group of kids, or one friend, from outside the school can provide friendship and support for your son. Your church, youth group, cadets, scouts and guides, outside sports teams are good ideas. This made a real difference for our daughter, friendship, skills, support, and fun.
      2) Two books to read:
      "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander" by Barbara Colaroso - the go to for help with bullying
      "Good Friends are hard to find" Fred Frankel, out of print but a great book.
      Our daughter found friendship and support outside of school, she graduated with honours and is thriving at university and making friends. Your son will get through this with your support and love.
    2. Patricia posted on 04/04/2017 09:22 AM
      @Meena Prayers were answered for all of us. I prayed that the bully that had tormented my daughter (and others) would be held accountable for his actions, and that everyone would know what happened. The bully was expelled from the school after damaging property, and his parent were billed for the expense.
      It made the national news. We will continue to pray for your son.

    I earnestly request prayers for Avinash. For his mentality & language. Initially he said abusive language was his negative point so I thought he knows its wrong, so he will improve, but now he celebrates it. Abusive language & dirty jokes. When asked, he said he doesn't think deeply about the meaning of words,its out of habit. But I feel it reflects a dirty mentality. Otherwise, his behaviour & thoughts show his decency. But due to above I feel he has an indecent mind. I'm disturbed.Please pray for him that he might have realisation of the same & feel disgusted & ashamed about it & pray for my peace as well.

    I ask that there are prayers for me to be blessed with very good part-time employment by May. I have had horrible jobs for so long, I am discouraged.
    My husband has suffered from mental illness which has put a terrible strain in our marriage. I ask that prayers are made for Ray to improve quickly and heal.
    In God's blessings, thank you

    Hi, please pray for me struggling with a lot of health issues after having a baby. I'm having a lot of discomfort and pain, four months later. The doctor also found that I have higher than usual enzymes and I'm being sent to a GI and honestly that scares me. I just want to stop having this pain and issue so I can be the best mom to my newborn. Please pray for complete healing, and that I'm healed before seeing a GI doctor. Thank you.i

    I am going through a painful divorce but praise god I have custody of my children! The bad part is that my husband still has medical decision making (jointly with me). I have two children with Autism and they have much needed upcoming pediatrician appointments that they desperately need to be able to go to. (We've been waiting a long time to be able get in.) Anyways, long story short he is refusing his consent for them to be treated, which will in turn be horrible for my children. My prayer is that he will either change his mind and give his consent, or that a judge will agree to revoke his decision making rights. Thank you so much

    I desperately need a powerful touch from God. I accepted Jesus when I was 7. I was abused as a young girl between the ages of 9-11. As a result of that and poor choices of my own, I have never been able to receive and KNOW in my soul God's love, forgiveness and grace for me. That somehow these gifts from God are not for me and that I have to earn them. I have been asking for years for God to help me move the truth about who I am to Him from my head to my heart and to see myself through His eyes, but it just feels like God isn't hearing my prayer. I know it is a powerful stronghold that needs to be broken but I know that God can. Please pray that God would break the power the enemy has had for so long in the area of these lies and that God would finally help me to know that He has heard my prayers. Bless you for praying!

    I have been going through a lot recently, 2 weeks ago I lost my uncle to dementia and will soon loose my grandma to brain cancer, and to top it off I'm still going through a rough divorce. But, I still have visitation with my 2 boys. I really need prayer for my family and my boy's. Also, I'm in the military and only see my boy's about every 2 weeks.

    Hello,
    I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis for many years now. I have worked very hard to put it into remission. Several years ago I came across praise radio and listen to it every day. I have found great peace in the music.
    I am a spiritual person, who does not align herself with any faith in particular. I believe in being a good person and living my life from a place of peace and nonviolence. I have raised my children that way as well.
    Since mid February of this year I have been rear ended while stopped at a red light and in early March fell in a very icy parking lot at work. I sustained a concussion from both the car accident and the fall among other injuries. I have been off work for awhile now, but the MS has reared it's ugly head. I am 61 yrs old and have dreams not yet fulfilled.
    I am asking for prayers from the praise community. I have faith in God and his angels but I'm know that more prayers are a plus.
    I thank in advance all those who will pray for me that I am able to put the MS back to sleep.

    With gratitude,
    Jewels

  • Picture for a moment the barrenness and bleakness that happens in a life when compromise occurs. It doesn't come immediately. At first it's fun to run with the wrong crowd. There's some zip, a little excitement; there's a measure of thrill and pizzazz in being a part of the in-group. But inevitably the fleshly investment starts to yield its carnal dividends. And when that happens you suffer as you've never suffered before.
