Prayer is a conquering and powerful force! We believe just as with the early morning Church, that it is thrrough the power of prayer that situations will change. The bible states in James 5:16 KJV “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
We take each submitted prayer request serious and will be praying for you. We only ask that when God answers prayer, that you write us or contact us on this website and let us know.
Submit Your Prayer Request
We are also listing prayer requests to further increase the number of Saints both locally, nationally and internationally to actively engage in praying for these requests.
, e2809cIf you want to know how you are doing in your spirc2adic2adtual growth, ask yourc2adself two quesc2adtions. c2bfHow am I hanc2addling fear and how am I hanc2addling anger?e2809d With anger I have leenrad a few imporc2adtant details (among othc2aders).. The greatc2adest spirc2adic2adtual gifts for hanc2addling anger are self-control and underc2adstandc2ading. We need self-control in order to not react from our first impulse which will usuc2adally injure the other perc2adson with an awful look or comc2adment which would degrade, embarace or hurt the other perc2adson makc2ading the sitc2aduc2adac2adtion worse. Underc2adstandc2ading is necec2adsarry to process the fealc2ading of anger. The way to process anger is to, first, admit to ourc2adselves that we feel anger; then ask ourc2adselves, e2809cWhy am I angry? What exactly is the issue at hand?e2809d Finally, let the reac2adson work to try to underc2adstand the other perc2adson or the sitc2aduc2adac2adtion which is makc2ading you angry. Feelc2adings need to be processed by the mind so that a reac2adsonc2adable action can be taken. This is often the great probc2adlem in our lives in overc2adcomc2adming probc2adlems in famc2adily life. Somec2adbody makes a harsh comc2adment and the other (or othc2aders) begin to add in to the negc2adac2adtivc2adity and arguc2adments and fights often result and the real issue is lost in the batc2adtle. This is usuc2adally the prodc2aduct of intec2adrior wounds from the past that have not been healed. We should ask God for the gift of underc2adstandc2ading. Getc2adting out of ourc2adselves and tryc2ading to underc2adstand why the other perc2adson would make such a comc2adment often difc2adfuses (gets rid of) the impulse we have to respond with aggresc2adsion. Also to underc2adstand why we ourc2adselves respond with aggresc2adsion over litc2adtle issues. The secc2adond issue is fear which has been called the mind-killer. It is called a mind-killer because it often parc2adac2adlyzes our mind from its capacc2adity to respond to a threatc2adenc2ading sitc2aduc2adac2adtion. It is good to recc2adogc2adnize that we are often fearc2adfull so that we can pray for courage to face the sitc2aduc2adac2adtion at hand and not over-react or under-react. When we start feelc2ading fear, many panic and thereby loose conc2adtact with reac2adson and make unforc2adtuc2adnate decic2adsions in what to do or not to do. We need to pray for courage so that we can have enough peace to think clearly and then act upon the decic2adsion we make while thinkc2ading clearly.Finally, forc2adgivec2adness. When there is much anger and fear there is often a lack of forc2adgivc2ading involved. Jesus was born of the Jewc2adish race which was and is full of anger and fear. They have always had fearce enec2admies and many have seric2adous difc2adfic2adculty forc2adgivc2ading espec2adcially with the arab nations. I rememc2adber being in the Holy Land in 2000 when I asked a Musc2adlim if he thought there could be peace between the Jews and the Arabs. He told me, e2809cNever! The Koran says that there will be eterc2adnal enmity between the two races.e2809d Isnc2b4t that sad news! Jesus comc2admands us to forc2adgive our enec2admies in the only prayer that He taught and which is in the Bible (the Our Father). Jesus not only thought it was posc2adsic2adble, He comc2admanded us to do it. I find that the folc2adlowc2ading prayer helps when peoc2adple think its imposc2adsic2adble to forc2adgive. First, one should unite with Jesus in the Cross. We, through Bapc2adtism are one Body with Him. Thus, being with Him, we can let Him pray in and with us so that our prayers will be assured to have power which we may not have perc2adsonc2adally. Once we unite ourc2adselves with Him we can say (pray) with him, e2809cFather forc2adgive them, they know not what they do.e2809d A very short, powc2aderc2adfull and libc2aderc2adatc2ading prayer.May God Bless you always,Fr.c2a0Isaac
