Prayer request 4/11/18

Hi! Please pray with me that N**** will cut down on her drinking. I care for her health. Please pray for Her concerning alcohol even though she isn’t a believer yet please pray God will work behind the scenes and make her stop drinking as much so she get hangovers. Many people in the city I live drink too much. Please pray!

Lord, in the name of Jesus we lift up this young lady and ask that you give her the healing that could only come from you. We pray for the peace that only can come from you. Whatever pain she is masking with the alcohol, we pray that you alleviate that pain. We pray that you show yourself in this girls life so that she may have a personal relationship with you. In Jesus name. Amen. PJSLB

I ALSO INVITE EACH OF YOUR TO LIFT THIS YOUNG GIRL IN PRAYER. Remember you can send prayers requests here or on Twitter @needthespirit

Strategic Role of Prayer

I found this on my phone and to be honest, I don’t know where it’s from. I could of written it, it could of been a lecture at a church, school, or seminar. I do know that it’s message is powerful and is something that can benefit someone out there. God Bless. PJSLB

The Strategic Role of Prayer

Luke 6:12-13

“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles:”

Where does our strategic direction come from?

Where do we receive counsel for the most important decisions that we make?

Jesus spent the night praying to God. Prayer was two-way communication for Jesus, where the Father provided a relationship in which Jesus could process his decisions and receive counsel.

Are we fully utilizing the potential of prayer to sort through our issues and receive God’s counsel and perspective?

The most important decisions leaders make concern the people with whom they will chose to surround themselves. Prayer is one of the most under-utilized resources God has given us for discernment, decision making and strategic planning.

Lord Jesus, I desire a deeper level of dependency on you through prayer. There are more strategic decisions that need your insight, direction and counsel. Thank you for the Holy Spirit and your invitation to pray.

Reader Prayer request 02/25/18

A reader has asked the following:

“I ask my fellow brothers and sisters I Christ to pray for the selling of our home and for our kids as we transition to a new chapter in our life.” P.V.

Moving into a new home is exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. Going thru this recently, I know the feeling first hand. Many thoughts enter your mind especially the following; “are you making the right choice?” I will say that PV, the lord will never place you somewhere only to fail and not succeed. You have my prayers and I ask for the readers of needthespirit to pray on PV’s behalf as well. PJSLB

Prayer Warriors needed (Prayer Request)

This was a text message i sent to family and friends earlier this afternoon. I wanted to send it to all my brothers and sisters in Christ. It was then that i realized that ALL OF YOU ARE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST. It is with that sentiment that i ask for your prayers tonight. I humbly ask that you lift me up and that the Holy Spirit show up and show out! Thanks. Below is the text i sent earlier:

Sorry for the mass email but I need prayer warriors! The prayers have helped in the past with the move and new house. I know that prayer works! There is an opportunity presented with a university here that despite all understanding, I have gotten this far in the hiring process. The Holy Spirit has lined up everything. I claim this position as Director of ####### ####### boldly and I ask that in your conversations with God, you claim if for me as well. I am not ashamed to ask my brothers and sisters in Christ for this as I would do it for you in a heartbeat as well. Thanks everyone!
