Prayer Request


Hello my friends, I have a prayer need. As you know, Eddie and I live in an apartment building. Well, things have really been getting bad around here since last year. There has been a fire in building 2, caused by a woman smoking in bed, she died in the fire. There has been a murder in building 5, due to a bad drug deal. There has been a meth lab bust in the building behind us, and late last night, there was a meth lab busted in our building, number 15. I am very scared about all of this, I know God has, and will continue to watch over us, but it is very scary and stressful. I do not work, so I am here so much by myself. Please pray that God would open some doors of opportunity for us to be able to move from here. We would love to have our own home, but financially, that cannot happen. But, we need to get out of here. Thanks for your sweet prayers, I love you all, and appreciate you.

I know the needing a new home feeling. Not because of danger--just because it will have to happen soon.
I will add this to my prayers. I thank God that He is working. He is a God of the miraculous.
Even when this world says--No way!
Our God says--Think Again!

I will pray also for your peace of mind.

Denise said...

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. Psa 91:10

change that word plague to anything that you might fear coming into your home!!! Speak the word to that fear and tell it to be gone.....

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee. Psa 91:7


I will pray those scriptures for you tonight... You can stand on His word..... and we will believe that He will find you a better place to dwell!!!!!!!

Lord, You are mighty and holy, and powerful. Thank You for Denise and for her prayer request. I lift her and Eddie to you and ask that you place a hedge of protection around them and, if it be Your will, see that the details come together for them to move to a safer place to live. Thank You for their unwavering faith in you, Father. Hold them in the palm of Your hand, I pray. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Howdy! PrayingKaren sent me your way cuz we recently moved to the city you live in (I've never been here, so I'm not sure if you're keeping that private so I won't mention the name). She thought we might be able to help you look ... or at the very least pray for ya'll.

Praying I will definitely do!

Helping? I'll do what I can for sure! You can email ( gajabra25@yahoo.com ) me and lemme know specifics for what ya'll would need, location, price, etc ... and I can help ya'll look around if you'd like?

I like your blog! I'll be back to read some more of your posts! Blessings to you and yours!

Denise,

Oh, my goodness! You certainly do need to get out of there. I will ask our Father to open doors to you. As you know, all things are possible with God. I am praying, my dear.
