  1. Please pray for my friend Laurie. Her husband Doug died of Covid-19 this morning, Saturday, October 10th. Doug was also a friend. We found we had a number of things in common. Both of us were in the Army in Germany when the Berlin Wall was built in August 1961. We both were in interested in history. Put Laurie, and all wives and husbands who have a spouse suffering with Covid-19. Thanks.
  2. Of all the verses in the bible that describe God's requirement for man to receive salvation what percentage of them use the words "Faith", "Believe" or "Repent" as opposed to "Ask Jesus into your heart" or even praying a prayer for that matter? I'll help you out, Faith and Believe are found the most over 100 times, Repent is probably second with at least 33 times, and you could maybe argue that 3-5 particular passages describe a prayer, and ZERO times do we find man commanded to "Ask Jesus into your heart" Now take those figures and ask yourself if those numbers accurately reflects what we most often emphasis as man's responsibility in salvation is? Maybe we need to rethink about how we are explaining the Gospel to people.
  3. Well, I'm graduating in a few weeks, and I have not found a woman to be my wife, as many of you know I am going to Uganda in the summer, and I suspect I may end up going there full-time as a missionary. I would really prefer not to have to go go alone. One of the heaviest burdens and desires in my heart right now is to be married, It is a trial and a challenge right now, So I have a few requests: 1. That God would give me a godly wife. 2. That God gives me grace to endure the trial that singleness is to me. 3. That God would begin to give me victory over sins that would hinder marriage and that he would prepare me for marriage. Thanks you.
  4. Hi! I have something very important happening, Tuesday! It's medical related, please pray that God will give the doctors and I/my family, guidance and that all diagnoses will be accurate :) Thank you!!
  5. Can you all please add Melissa L. to your prayers? She is a young woman who has overcome many challenges. She is scheduled to have a serious surgery on Thursday and it's quite scary for her. Due to her other medical conditions, she will be in the hospital for probably a month afterwards. Thank you all.
  6. Please pray for my family, brothers and sisters in Christ. I was an abusive, drug addict, drinking, adulterous husband in the past. My wife left me three years ago because of it. She was also adulterous. I have since been saved, am completely regenerate in Christ, but my wife is not. We have since started dating for 2 months, still living separate. She is now pregnant, praise God, but I am afraid she might be considering an abortion. Please pray for us. I don't think you need our names, God knows who we are and He will know that you are praying for our situation.
  7. I live in an apartment building and across the hall from me a lady in wheelchair, one leg, move in to apartment. We quickly became friends. I've invited her multiple times over the past year to church. She always said no, that she "tried church" before. A year later, she said she'd go Sunday for Friend Day! I'm so excited! Please prayer she';ll actually go and not change her mind. that we'll have good weather. that she'll have good interactions with others in church and want to come again. We're having a cookout after service, which is what I think helped entice her to come, since we can just wheel her around the yard of church. Pastor preached on bringing big things to God, and I did, and she said yes! She's a very hard hearted woman, very negative about everything, complains constantly. But God has given me the grace to continue to be friends with the old bird and it may pay off Sunday. Her name is Hannah, please pray for God to continue to soften her heart so she'll be ready to receive and act on the Gospel message.
  8. I'm asking for prayer this weekend for my daughter, who is away at college, is on a Christian retreat weekend. I believe she is saved, so I pray for a recommitting herself to walk with the Lord but if not, please pray for her salvation. As some of you know from my previous prayer requests last few months with my daughter getting her graduated and off to college has been stressful to say the least. But, we are greatly blessed in that when we moved back home to Illinois her best friend was from our church then, great Christian family, etc. they moved after her 7th grade year. Now, that friend is attending the same college and has got my daughter to participate in Bible studies with her! And is also with her on this retreat.
  9. I'm on day 3 of a bug of some kind. Feel better than day one and two. But really punk. Prayer would be appreciated.
  10. I'm asking for prayer for a family friend who's family found out today he's been taken captive. This is not in the media yet. His name is Chris. That's all the info I know at this point. He has a young wife and one year old baby. All prayers for his safety and return are coveted! We've all seen the news lately that they are beheading a lot of the captives.
  11. I've posted a few requests for prayer for me and my daughter's relationship and I still covet those prayers, nothing has changed. I have been praying she would get a Christian roommate in college, she found out today her new roommate is from India. I'm upset about it. My daughter is leaving a small town. I know I'm a mom worrying about her baby. She's going from a small town to a city and her college has about 10,000 students. The odds of the Indian roommate being a Christian is small. Her roommate is studying molecular physics or something physics.
  12. I'm requesting prayer for me and my daughter's relationship. She moved out last March/April in with my mom. Absolutely no respect for me. She turned 18 in February. She acts like she hates me lately. My heart is breaking on a daily basis. Sometimes I feel like I'm dying of a broken heart. Any dialogue with her ends up with us fighting. She leaves for college next month and I've been praying she'll have a Christian roommate. She was saved at age 11 but hasn't attended church since I started attending IFB. I've been crying for hours last few days after trying to talk to her. It really feels like she hates me.
  13. Concerning the situation in Romania, there is a church that needs our support in prayer. In the far north-east of the country on the border with Ukraine and Moldova is a small poor village where years ago an American missionary started an independent baptist church, mostly a kids mission. Now he is gone back in the States and the kids are in their teens and early 20s being taken care by the 23y old preacher Benone, only partly prepared and with little authority. We visited from Lugoj for other issues but God touched us all by the way he works in these youngsters still thirsty for God's truth long after the American 'cornucopia' in their eyes is gone and in the midst of so much pentecostal and adventist heresy in their area, even in their community where they are mocked and not taken seriously for being so young. Still they continue to stand strong. As Bro. Irwine put it, that dirt desolate road to a forsaken village might look unappealing to the world but in God's eyes that road may very well be of gold, for he has his children there, and he reaches to them. The brothers from the College said they will help the brother Benone with study material via the post which is really beneficial. Let's pray that The Lord God is his eternal wisdom and might strengthens and spiritually grows his church in the village called Baranca.
  14. I need prayer now, today. I'm so stressed I'm going to have a stroke! God please give me the skills to enjoy my blessing until she graduates. Huge fight.
  15. Pray for family my cousin's ex wife was murdered last night. Guy who murdered her killed himself. They have 3 kids. One just got married 2 weeks ago.
  16. Please pray for a friend of mine who is having a bronchoscopy done tomorrow (Oct. 7). She has major health/breathing issues from smoking. She only 38 with 4 children and husband. They think she may have CHF (congestive heart failure). She's been in hospital since last Thursday (Oct. 3). She's a very new Christian, saved a few weeks ago when she was in hospital the last time. She's also in a hospital not close to home so no visitors (cards or flowers) either.
  17. I'm asking for prayer for my friend Joyce who's going to be tested for multiple sclerosis/ ALS/ Parkinsons. She's having trouble walking and sometimes can't. I had suspected one of these diagnoses when she was telling her symptoms to me but I wasn't going to tell her what I suspected. She's also a lifelong catholic.
  18. I'm asking for prayer for my finances especially this month.
  19. Let me share 2 prayer's from back in 1992 and their answers. 1) I was a brand new christian and my pastor got up and said the King James Bible is the word of God. I also learned that I can pray about "anything" and should pray about "everything" Well, like a child I started to pray about what bible I should use. After all, the christian book store had so many versions it was confusing to me. I went to a book fair and was talking to my friend by one of the many tables. Nehemiah seemed to pray even when he was in the presence of other people so I prayed in my heart, when I reached, down for God to guide me to what He would have me to pull out. I grabbed a book whose binding was worn down beyond recognition (as many of the books were worn) and pulled out an old bible. My heart raced and I asked how much: $1. I still have that turn of the century King James Bible but it had since been rebound and is in storage. 2) I was a brand new christian and wanted to get a book to read at the book store. Like I said above, I had learned that I can pray about "anything" and should pray about "everything" So, I prayed for God to guide me to the book that He would have me to read ... just any book. I think I apologized that I wasn't looking for a bible although I can't remember for sure. I walked into the store and walked to a "random" shelf. I pulled a little book whose binding was too small to read off the shelf. It was called "Bible Facts About Heaven" by John R Rice. I was attending an independent baptist church, Jack Hyles had visited , ran from the pulpit and preached from atop a pew. Well, anyway, I wen't to the store worker, showed him the book, and asked if there were any more books like the one I had found. He said "I'm suprised that one was on the shelf, we don't usually carry those, someone must have special ordered it and not picked it up" To understand the depth of this ... you would need to consider how many books are in a book store, John Rice's connection to independent baptists, and so on. The same God that parted the sea for the Israelites led me as a new believer to that book.

    Daniel 6

    Daniel 6 “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime”. (v. 10) It is interesting to note that Daniel defied the proclamation of king Darius, and prayed as he had always done, not changing his pattern. You see, he could have closed the windows, and still prayed, and he would feel just in doing so, so as not to “make any waves”. Though commanded otherwise, he still did what he had always done. This speaks of consistency, as well as OBeying the Lord at all cost, and at all times, in spite of the opposition. Daniel is known for taking a stand, or, as we teach the children “standing alone”. We sing the song “Dare to be a Daniel” and yet I wonder what most of us would have done? Daniel openly, and flagrantly defied the kings order, knowing full well what the punishment would be. He did not justify hiding his actions by telling himself, “well, at least I am still praying” or perhaps, as I have heard many times, “If I get caught, then the praying will cease. It is better that I pray than die, and the praying ceases.” That thinking applies to all areas of our lives, of course. We have many ways of justifying our compromise. He was praying “to the glory of God” and could have justified himself in delaying the inevitable by simply closing the window, but he did not. It is as if (by the reckoning of many today) he says “Catch me if you can” to the king and his cohorts; some might say that he tempted God, and I see the fine line of distinction there, but Daniel just continued to do what he had always done in the way he had always done it. We need to “dare to be Daniels” today too. I wonder if we would oppose the government today if it conflicted with our private worship. Some do, and acquire a certain amount of fame, but these are rare fellows, and often thought to be very strange even among their peers. Daniel may have been accused of bringing trouble on himself, and deliberately trying to make trouble because he could have closed the window and not made himself so OBvious. He could have compromised his regular custom of praying toward Jerusalem with the window open. I do not condone anarchy, or rebellion, but there are times when the politics of this world clash with the things of God. It happened in Paul’s day, and in every age since; even Jesus had to deal with a religious-political system. What will you do when that day comes for you? Will you dare to be a Daniel?
