[We read] In KJV, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."
O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada, Poland and United Kingdom. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?
Dear believers: we continue the good fight to the end.
Please pray that United Kingdom, Poland, the USA, Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).
* Poland, pray for freedom from dead religion to saving faith of Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord by faith only,
* the Church in the USA & Canada & United Kingdom – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church - Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
* my family:
1. Bad executives are hurting me. Please pray for God's order in that case.
2. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15
3. Pray for God's will, wisdom, discernment, revelation and recognition for me and my family; I ask God for Edmund’s work situation, God's direction for Edmund , Dorothy, Peter, Daniel and Ann (also God's protection and blessings over the company where she works and she needs a husband),
4. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work.

I have lost one of the most important people in my life (50 years old) suddenly to a brain aneurysm.His name was Mark He passed away on February 12th and I still find it hard to carry on. He added so much joy and fullness to my life. We shared a lot of memories the last 16 years and I’m angry, sad, confused, etc.. I feel like I’m being punished for some reason and he and all that lived him have been robbed of what should have been. I don’t want to waiver in my faith, but am really struggling right now. I’m asking for prayers for Mark that he’s at peace and safe. I’m asking for prayers for his folks and brothers and for myself that somehow we can find the strength, faith and courage to make sense of this life altering tragedy, get up each day, and find a way to place one foot in front of the other and learn to live again. Im just always sick to my stomach, I’m not sleeping, eating, and rarely smiling. I feel like when he left all that fullness and life was sucked out of me as well. I do have so much To be thankful for I’m just having a hard time paying attention to it and wanting to be a part of it. Please pray for healing and comfort for his family as well as me and a way for us to start remembering and believing in our relationship with Mark and god that they both are still very much alive. God bless and thank you

Please put Debbie Banks on your prayer list. She was just diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. This is a degenerative brain disorder that cannot be cured or reversed. It is very very rare. The Mayo Clinic site says it is 1 to 2 people per million that are diagnosed. She has attended LCC, and lives in Altoona. She is a 1978 SEP graduate. I have known her since 6th grade. Please pray for God to give her peace and comfort, and for her siblings, children and grandchildren to have strength and peace as well. They are surrounding her with love and taking care of her at home. She is a wonderful person that has the greatest smile and personality and has always brought happiness to those around her. Please pray for our Lord to allow her to be pain free and get her to her next chapter in her life.

As we lose another kitty to sickness, please pray for Ron and me. The grief is very real to us and we ask Jesus to be with us.

Kelly Brown, here. I could use prayers that my mood is good during the day and especially when I wake up from sleeping in the mornings or from naps. I have trouble getting up in the mornings on weekends. I could use prayers that I get up at a decent time like 9am on weekends. I would like to stop taking naps (please pray I stop needing to take naps for at least until I'm at least 49 years old) and yet still sleep soundly at nighttime for 10 hours. This is so I can eventually have time to homeschool my son.
Napping takes too much time away from teaching my son eventually. Pray my dry eye condition does not worsen. Pray my eyes don't involuntarily focus or gaze upward uncontrollably. I also need prayers that my arteries and veins don't clog up more. I have built up more plaque in them. I need prayers that I don't ever need a stint in my arteries and my thyroid's nodule does not become cancerous. Pray that my nodule and goiter go away. Please pray I remain mentally stable as I have mental illness. That I don't have a mental episode. Please pray I don't have harmful thoughts that leads to harmful actions. Pray I can continue to work my part time job. Pray I can find time to homeschool my son while having enough time to read, exercise, do chores, cook, and hopefully not need to nap for about an hour. Pray my hair does not thin more and my callus on my foot doesn't hurt. Pray I work on my Christian poetry project. Pray my husband gets healthy and lives to see his great grandchildren.
