Praying for a Young Man's Healing and A Mother's Strength
Submitted by: Phyllis
I am lifting up a dear friend, Kathy and her family, who need our prayers. She is a devoted mother who has overcome so much throughout her life to be the walking example of humility, excellence and grace that she is today. She has been such an incredible friend to me and I am so thankful to have her in my life. When she hurts I hurt so I come submitting this prayer request on her and her family's behalf. I am asking for prayers of healing for her son - that the bone marrow failure that he is facing is defeated - that his bone marrow becomes strong, his cell count multiplied and healthy and that he will emerge stronger, healthier and happier than ever. He is a sweet young man who has encountered a number of health issues in his life. We know that God is in complete control and that this young man is destined for greatness - that God will use his journey to remind all of us that there is NOTHING too hard for the Lord. As Pastor says, physicians are just practicing - we know that the ultimate physician, Dr. Jesus, has already marked on this child's medical chart - HEALED! I also lift up my friend Kathy, praying that God will continue to strengthen her during this latest trial. God has shown His favor upon her and it remains my prayer that God continue to shower His love, comfort, peace and joy upon her and her family. That God will remind her that He is with her every step of the way and that while weeping may endure for a night, Joy comes in the morning. She is a wonderful woman in Christ and I remain confident that this trial will be yet another part of her awesome testimony of how God has worked miracle after miracle in her life. Thank you Mt. Pleasant prayer warriors for your prayers!Health05-25-2016

Stronghold Release of Debt
Submitted by: Believer in Prayer
Father, I stand upon Philippians 4:19 which states, “My God will meet my needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus”. I thank you that I do not have to put trust in my ability to meet my needs, but I put my trust in Your ability to effectively work through me. Father, I stand upon Psalm 34:10 that declares “the lions may grow weak and hungry but those who seek the Lord shall lack no good thing.” Lord as I seek your face I am believing that I and my family will lack no good thing. Father, I stand upon Proverbs 13:22 that states “a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.” Father I am believing in you for creative ideas and opportunities to build wealth in order to leave a legacy for my children’s children. Let this be done according to your will. Father, I stand upon Malachi 3:10-12 which states, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops and the vines in your field will not drop there before it is ripe.” Lord we thank you as we are faithful in paying our tithes that you will not only protect our finances from the evil one, but you will also cause our finances to overflow. We rebuke the devourer, and trust that every dollar you have for us is ours. Amen.Finances10-27-2015

Lifting Up a Dear Friend
Submitted by: Phyllis
Lord I come with a heavy heart as my dear friend is dealing with health issues and pain. I hurt for her but I lift her up knowing that You are a miracle working God. Lifting her up knowing that You are not the traditional physician - that there is nothing too hard for You. You can heal through the touch of your garment. You can heal just by saying the words. Lord we know that You have all power in Your hands and that You and only You have the final say on our situation. My friend is dearly loved and appreciated and she is going through a series of emotions - fear, depression, anguish, uncertainty. Lord please restore the joy back to her. Lord help us all to take joy in knowing that You are our healer - that through Your stripes, we ARE healed. Lord give me wisdom to know what to say, when to say, how to say what You lead me to say. Lord help me to be the friend You have called me to be for her during this time. Lord what a powerful reminder that life can change in a second and how we have to learn to lean on You and trust in You when things are great as well as when things are not so great. We don't understand why things must be what they are. We plead the blood of Jesus on my friend knowing that she is healed in You and through You. My heart is heavy but help me to remain faithful and trusting that You know whats best for us. Thank you Lord for being such a merciful, awesome, amazing, loving God. I ask this in the powerful and wonderful name of Jesus. Amen.Depression10-11-2015

sister and marriage
Submitted by: J
I pray for wisdom for my sister. She is dating a man that in my discernment is not good for her. We have seen a number of red flags that concern all of us in her family. She is determined to marry a man that does not appear to have her or our family's best interests at heart. Praying that God will open her eyes to allow her to see the man that she is dating for who he really is. His anger and threatening ways have her whole family concerned for her safety and wellbeing. We love her and only want what you have ordained and chosen for her for her husband. We lay this petition at Jesus' feet and trust everything is ok and worked out in accordance to God's will.

My Sisters of God
Submitted by: JaiMarie
Dear Lord, I want to stand in the gap for all of my Christian sisters who may be feeling a little inadequate and overwhelmed due to their current situations. As women, we sometimes find ourselves feeling that we do not have the time or even the wherewithal to do all that we think you're asking of us. When in reality we are putting too much pressure on ourselves. My sisters and I don't always realize just how much time we spend praying to you, how much time we spend witnessing for you, how much time we spend planting your seeds, how much time we are sowing into the Kingdom, how much we are giving of out time, talents, and ourselves. Dear Lord, the majority of my sisters give so much more of themselves than you've ever required and I want them to know that YOU know who they are and all they do!!! Ladies, just know that God hears you every time you lift your voice and say, "Lord, have mercy," or "Lord, please bless...!" We plant seeds as we care for the needs of others as we go about our daily lives. Just know that God sees everything.............. Thank you, dear Lord, thank you. AmenAbuse10-27-2014

Lord, I again want to say thank you for being the awesome God that you are. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins, for showering me with your gifts of grace and mercy, despite me not being worthy of such incredible love. Lord I thank you for all that you have done in my life. I recognize that You, and You only, have brought me this far and I will continue to trust in You as I continue to walk and grow in you.

I lift up my family Lord, that you will continue to keep us close, keep us strong, keep us praying with each other and for one another, as we go through good and challenging times together. Lord, I lift up my dear friends, my work family, certainly my church family, asking for all to be safe in their travels and for everyone to have a safe and peaceful holiday. I also lift up those who are downtrodden this holiday season - the hurting, the depressed, those who seek you in their holiday challenges. Lord, we ask that you keep them all in your care, continue to provide the needed provisions for those who require them and Lord help us to be ready to step up to assist those in need. Help us to heed the call of giving for those who need our assistance, not just this holiday but whenever the need arises.. Lord, You make no mistakes and we know that You have ALL power in your hands. We lift up not only our neighbors and communities, but even those in who have served great loss, in the cities affected by tornadoes, to those in the Philippines and Haiti, who may feel abandoned, overwhelmed, depressed and helpless, feeling alone and fearful. Lord we know You promised never to leave us nor forsake us and we continue to keep these areas and those affected in our prayers. Comfort them Lord and continue to soothe their fears and dry their tears. Lord help me to do my part. Lord help our church to be the beacon of light to make a difference wherever you lead us. Bless our upcoming bible study Lord, preparing us to embrace a life-changing fast in the New Year. Lord, we ask for guidance, strength and a sincere heart, expecting monumental transformations to take place, not only in our personal lives but in this new phase at our church.

Im not here to even be relevant or successful by human standards. Im here to please You. To live like this, I yield myself to You, to know You, to love You, to obey You, and to grow in your Holy fear. I desire to become a person who understands and lives in reverent awe of You. Ill do anything that You want me to do, go anywhere that You want me to go and say anything that You want me to say. Father, there isnt any gift that You have for me that I dont want.

Your Word says that Jesus bore all my sickness and diseases, and He carried my sorrows, so I receive healing now. I know and declare that Jesus is my Healer. I give You all the praise for providing everything I need to walk in wholeness. Thank You for satisfying me with long life. Father, I am thankful that You are no respecter of persons. What You do for one, You will do for all who ask and believe by faith. Amen Health09-13-2013

Father, I pray for courage as I begin this day, for I understand there is work to be done, burdens to be carried, feelings to be shared and joys to be celebrated. Grant me the courage to be silent that I may hear Thy voice; to persevere, that I may share Thy victory; and to remember, lest I forget the way by which Thou has led me. And when this day is done, O Lord, may I have the courage to see Thy guiding hand in the friendships that have been made, in the hurts that have been healed, and in the strength that has been given. Amen.Self09-13-2013

Prayer For Faith Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved, and let it penetrate my thought, my way of judging Divine things and human things. Lord, let my faith be joyful and give peace and gladness to my spirit, and dispose it for prayer with God and conversation with men, so that the inner bliss of its fortunate possession may shine forth in sacred and secular conversation. Lord, let my faith be humble and not presume to be based on the experience of my thought and of my feeling; but let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit, and not have any better guarantee than in docility to Tradition.Self09-13-2013
Let Me Be a Source of Peace
Submitted by: In Need of Prayer
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen.Abuse09-13-2013
Lifting up the Lewis Family
Submitted by: Phyllis
Asking for prayer for the Lewis family - their loved one has been battling cancer for some time. She was at one time in remission when after surgery, the doctors stated they were able to remove all of her tumors. She recently became ill and found out that all of the tumors were not removed and as a result, she is now battling Stage 4 cancer. Her family is doing all they can to support her and caregive for her. Let us lift them up in prayer knowing that not only is there nothing too hard for the Lord, but nothing is final until GOD has the final say in the matter. Please keep them lifted up in prayer.

A Teacher's Prayer ( for a new teacher... Erica Russell ... We are proud of you your MPBC Family) James J.

And so I ask your guidance, God That I may do my part, For character and confidence And happiness of heart. Job08-20-2013
