Paul tells his fellow believers in Philippians 4:5-7, “The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guide your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Specific needs this week:

David Burkhart: I am really struggling inside. I am not sure what is going on, but I feel I need to talk to someone. It’s been the toughest year of my life this past year. My wife went to be with Jesus and I have become homeless. And now I find I am going to have to take care of my brother which was totally unexpected. His health is not good and he has no one else to turn to but me. He doesn’t know how to survive out here and needs my help. I find I am feeling overwhelmed most of the time now. I am in some fear and don’t really know why. I need to talk to someone who can maybe help me sort all this out. Thanks for listening!

Mary Mobley: Please pray for my granddaughter who is in 5th grade and just struggling with life right now. Please pray for her to open up and feel comfortable talking to her mom and that they could develop a close relationship. Please pray for God to let me know my role in helping her. Also please pray that she will want to go to her church class and school as well. Pray for a godly friend o come into her life.

Eva Mock: Prayer for a single mom (2 boys) who fell down stairs and broke her thigh bone in 2 places. The children do not receive any support from their father, who viciously abused them and their mother for years. Her name is Lynn. Thank you! (She is a believer.)
