Faith Prayer Requests for August 2009
Son believes God hates him
It was hard to choose a category - for really all of them would have applied. Our youngest son, Eric, is in crisis. He has suffered from schizophrenia since the age of 12, and recently turned 30. He believes that God hates him - and this is why he has suffered from this tragic illness. He also believes this is why he has his other problems. Right now - he is in crisis. He has returned to huffing carburetor cleaner. This is his response to despair. He lives closed up in a dark apartment, withdrawn from society. He has disowned both of his siblings. He has in the past sought God with a fervent spirit - but, when he sees that he continues to be human, that his problems don't disappear - he gives up. My most fervent prayer is that he will find peace of mind. I pray daily that God will draw him to Himself as a moth to a flame. I believe that if ever he can understand God's love and grace - his life could turn around 180 degrees. He suffers from great guilt - because he is aware that he has lived a wild life; but he sees himself as unworthy of forgiveness. And of course none of us are - it's not about our worthiness. But Eric sees himself as beyond the reach of grace. He spews hatred and unacceptance of others - I believe this is because he is unable to love and accept even himself. He is immersed in the heavy metal/death metal scene which has been an horrific influence on his life. He understands that this is not good for him and once said to me, "It's hard to be positive when you listen to heavy metal." But - he is so captured by it that he seems unable to let go. He is also losing an eye - because he will not see a doctor. Again - this is a response from the zone of despair. He has given up hope. I thank you for your prayers on my son's behalf. Mary
Please pray that my son will be able to understand the love of God, and be drawn to him as a moth to a flame. Please pray that he will be able to find peace of mind, be able to walk out of the darkness of mind and spirit - to set aside that which hinders and walk a new path. Please pray that he will be able to conquer his addictions, and be willing to accept medical assistance. And - please pray that his father and I will have the wisdom to deal with this situation day by day. Thank you

Terminated from job over hearsay
I ask youn to pray for this mother of 6 who's going to be a grandmother anytime soon. One of our CNA'S dropped a resident on the floor and injured her. The resident said who it was,but this certain CNA was fired also. She agreed to a lie detecter test. The results are unknown at this time. Word has it,a nurse helped the other CNA to pick up this resident off the floor.The nurse however, was fired for something else. I ask that you pray for Antonia especially if she was fired WRONGFULLY!!! Her WORD wasn't good enough. And only GOD KNOW'S what really happened that day.

Prayer for wisdom
The Lord through the prayers of righteous people has so graciously blessed me with a great job. I was unemployed a few months ago and came to the site to get prayer. Two months later the Lord open a door of employment and it really is more than I had expected.
Please pray the Lord gives me wisdom and grace to do what He has called me to do. I am feeling anxiety and fear as the job is a huge responsibility and I desire to work as unto the Lord. I want to succeed where the Lord has placed me. Please be agreement with me. Thank you, Kimberly
At our online church, we believe that the miracle of relationship prayers, and financial blessings can be shared by everyone. Feel free to submit a prayer request for healing if you or a loved one needs physical rehabilation. Allow the Lord to enter your heart and you will be rewarded here, and in Heaven. If you need to find a stronger connection to God, pray for faith or make a prayer request for well being. The CPC allows you to post a prayer request for general topics.
