There is an old Spiritual song and the lyrics are...you know the Lord will make a way somehow... You have prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed for me. Your prayers have seen me through radiation, chemo (Yes cancer). I made it through my proposal and now I defended my dissertation (OMG). This prayer line is awesome! Every time that I receive a notice someone prayed for me I became stronger. Please pray now that I complete all my edits on my dissertation and I commit to continue to pray for those on the prayer line. Thank you!

I will rejoice to my God. I have been at my lowest this semester but not understanding the situation it created a importance that God had for me to receive growth at 37 year old. Thank you lord for your love that is overflowing continuous in my life. I have felt very weak this semester but it was your love and that has guided my path. Thank you God for a clarity and renewal of my mind. Help me lord to continue to be humble and loving to others and share my testimony with others looking for your LOVE. Help me to find opportunities throughout the day to share encouragement in which doing so will also help encourage myself. In the name of Jesus I declare VICTORY for all the prayers on prayer wall.

So I have several prayer requests:
My uncle is really overwhelmed and I currently out of town for a wedding, I know he hasn't gotten much sleep lately and is just really tired all the time. As well, I have recently been accepted into UMHB and I am really wanting to attend here in the fall of 2019. I am just trying to weigh out my options and right now I feel like this is where God is placing me. Also, I am very stressed with high school grades right now because "junior year is the year that counts" and everyone knows that it really does. So just pray that God will give my uncle the strength to get through and allow him time to rest and feel better; and that He will show me where I am supposed to attend college and that I will be able to get through the end of this school year and into my senior year.

A friend of mine is a very young single mother with a wonderful little boy, but lately it seems it's just one thing after another. She is working on getting her GED but she's really struggling to get back on her feet with the cards she's been dealt. Prayers that she can keep her eyes upward and keep pushing forward, and that things will start to get easier as she searches for a better job and earns her GED would be greatly appreciated.

One of my old band directors, Steve Stevenson, who was like a family member to me passed away this week. Please pray for his amazing wife, Amanda, and his family for peace.

I am currently having trouble submitting great effort with this year's semester and I've been struggling with how much I remember, understanding the lectures, and giving feedbacks to my professors due to being shy and worried about hurting them with what I am struggling during their lectures.
I may feel like I am alone and lost, but I'll always understand and believe that God is with me and shows me a way and there will be rough times during my semester.

Please pray for my friend Susan's dad (and her too). He is 94 and fell and hit his head. He has bleeding on his brain and they can not drain it because his platelets are low. He is currently in rehab and all that he wants to do is sleep. She just lost her mom last year. All prayers are appreciated. Thanks

Can you please continue to pray for my friend Alecia, her husband James and their little baby Reign. She had twins back in Sept and one of them did not make it. The other one (Reign) has been in the hospital ever since. He is growing (weighed less than 1 lb. when born and is now 7lbs 12oz - woohoo), but he is still not breathing on his own. They said that his lungs were not developed enough at birth. They have had to put him on 15 liters of oxygen (normally its 5 liters), they had to change his medication and now are talking about a possible trach. Mommy and daddy are so tired of being at the hospital, want to take him home, and are stressing about all the medical bills (and not being able to work- she had to go PRN at her work). All prayers are appreciated. God bless. He is definitely a little fighter and miracle!
