I pray for a new way to earn a living with less physical strength and less hours. My work at present requires heavy lifting and my body is aching from it. It has been rewarding helping others to get well and walk again. I want to be able to help others in a new way that I can continue to help others is important to me.

I pray in Yeshua’ Name! spirit of vertigo Go! Balance return to normal in my comings in and goings out! In bed no dizziness. I speak peace and sweet sleep loose! Thank You Jesus Christ! Psalm 18:32-33 says, It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places.

Due to a career advancement for my husband we relocated our family to Pearland, Texas in early November of last year. This was an answered prayer for us. God pretty much shut every door around us for YEARS in Raleigh and we felt very stuck. As soon as my husband said yes to the drastic move we found exactly what we were looking for in a home, church, community, and schools. BUT do not have family or friends within 1100-2400 miles of us! We joined a church pretty much right before COVID happened, and moved into our new home, so we have not made very many connections here. I am nervous about my daughter starting kindergarten in this strange time now too. I still feel like we are here for a reason, but it just feels stalled now due to the virus! I would appreciate prayers for peace/guidance and patience!

Thank you for sharing Kayla! Absolutely, I will pray for peace and guidance from the Lord during this difficult and strange time. Sometimes God asks us to release our grip on something and calls us away from what is familiar and comfortable as a way to grow us, to show us that his plans are much better and bigger than we could have ever imagined or had in mind for ourselves. It can be so difficult to trust His plan when we can’t see what lies ahead, but take heart in knowing that he is a good good God who has great plans for you and your family. We cannot see what the future holds, but God holds our future. Praying for you!

I took a detour to buy and read the Circle Maker. I discovered that my train of thought was interrupted( it must be my age). I went back to this day and am trying to define 3 bold prayer requests from the promises of God. Bold Prayer circle 1: Ephesians 2:10For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
I am declaring this truth that God has prepared good works for me. During this season of my life, I feel as If I have no purpose. This promise lets me know God is not finished with me, yet, or I would not still be here. Bold Circle 2: John 10:27: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I am praying that the Spirit will teach me how to listen and hear the voice of God, that I might follow Him wholeheartily. Bold Circle 3: 2Peter 3:9 :9The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. I declare this promise over my unsaved children and my birth family.

My prayer request is for physical healing of my Flat Back Syndrome. It seems almost too much to ask as it is a structural repair to bring my back straight, and my pelvis up so I can stand straight to my full 5’8 1/2 inches. But God says we are fearfully and wonderfully made so He certainly can adjust what is broken in His creation! I would like the Lord to heal me so I do not have to go through a 6-8 hr surgery that takes a long time to recover from (Dr said it is 7 months before one starts to feel better and over a yr of physical therapy and wearing a back brace) I feel sheepish asking and sort of selfish but hey-Ask and keep on asking the Word says, so please pray…

And Susann- I know what you are going through-my children are in their 40s now but when they were in their 20’s there were times one or the other wanted to come home and it was hard. So I will pray and ask for the Lord’s wisdom and grace for you and for your son to adapt also. A pleasure to pray for you and yours.

My young adult son is moving back home as his hours at work have been cut. We have a rocky relationship and he tries our nerves. Please pray for me to be patient and slow to anger with him.

Day 16
Couldn’t access the video but read all of Aliene’s notes , did Day 2 REVEAL on Exodus 17:8-16and prayed aloud on some pretty sticky points. Felt the Lord’s peace. God controls my every breath. I am protected and cared for. Praise God.

Day 16. Prayer request is that My husband and I can clearly hear the Spirit’s voice as to what direction God wants us to take regarding a few decisions we have been praying about.

As I read through Ephesians 1 again this morning verses 8 and 9 resonated with me. We have wisdom and understanding because of Jesus. He made known the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure. Wow! God has it all planned out. I am adding to my prayer circles to ASK for clarity!

Day 16 – Please pray for me to have the fortitude to stick with my journey to come closer to God. I understand the importance and feel the power when I do it – just seem to let friction get in the way. Help me to make daily Bible study a consistent piece of my life. Thank you all XOXOXO

Jodi, you are doing AMAZING! Don’t ever forget that… and remember its a journey….not all days work out perfectly – and that is SO VERY OK. God is walking with you and he carries you during the bumps on he road. He loves you – he is FOR YOU. You can always talk to him at any time during the day. You are almost to the end. WAY TO GO!
