"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6-7

Our Prayer Ministry consists of a group of Prayer Warriors who lift up the needs of our church, our community, our nation, and our world. We would consider it an honor if you would allow us to prayer for your special need. 

In addition to praying for special needs, we also want to make an impact by praying for the spiritual awakening of our families, our friends, our nation and our world.

Will you join us in answering the call?

I prayed for this

Prayed for 31 times.


Tomorrow from 2:30-3:30 pm is when I will be having my Epidural Blood Patch Procedure. This procedure is risky because sometimes it has very bad side effects. My heart has been in turmoil because it can really help you or the bad side effects can make it worse.

As I was waking up this morning while still drowsy and sleepy, I had this thought come to me and to the best I can remember because I wasn't quite awake yet but this is close to what I heard," Stop focusing on what you have been through. Focus on the cure. It's over."

So I am fasting and praying today. Still believing for absolute assurance from God about having the procedure tomorrow. Unless He tells me otherwise I will go through with it. But I also had this thought about even if there are bad side effects from this procedure, they are not allowed to affect me.

I was still in a sleep state but I believe that sometimes there are negative side effects from this procedure but God will not allow them to hurt me. That God will protect me from any bad or negative side effects. That they are not allowed to attack me. I will be praying the following prayer requests today, will you please agree with me according to Matthew 18:19?

No weapon formed against me shall prosper. No bad side effects from this procedure will prosper against me.

That I will only benefit from the good that this procedure will do.

That this Epidural Blood Patch will work the first time. I will not need a second blood patch.

That it will cure ALL my symptoms, all the noise in my ears, all the sound sensitivity, all the pressure, all the headaches and all the brain inflammation, instantly.

That I will never be afflicted with an Intracranial Hypotension Spontaneous Fluid Leak ever again.

I really need prayers of agreement.

I do pray that you will be truly blessed for praying for me. Thank you a million times over for being so diligent in your prayers for my healing and manifestation.

Sending my great love and appreciation,

I pray that my wife of forty plus years will realize her marriage vows are not soluble. She professes Christ but then decides that our marriage is inconvenient as my ability to make money decreases and health problems increase. My children have chosen to abandon me and she sides with them against me.

Order of Corporate Prayer

  1. Praise/Thanksgiving – Time to thank God for what He has done for us. A time of dropping off the cares of the world and beginning to concentrate on our gratitude for His goodness to us as we prepare to enter into His presence.  This is a good time to read a Psalm of thanksgiving. (An example is Psalm 100.)
  2. Confession – Confess our sins to God and asking His forgiveness according to 1 John 1:9 and/or Psalm 51. The Word says God can’t hear our prayers if we harbor wickedness in our hearts (Psalm 66:18).
  3. Adoration – A time of praising and then worshipping God for Who He is!!! (Revelation 4:8,11).
  4. Protection – Put on our spiritual armor before entering into intercession (Ephesians 6:10-18).
  5. Intercession – Time is very limited (50 minutes) so our prayers on each subject should be limited to 1 to 2 minutes. Incorporate God’s Word into our prayers as much as possible (Isaiah 55:11). The focus of our prayer time is: church, pastors, spiritual awakening and the lost.

This prayer time is dedicated to the Lord. We honor Him by:

  • being on time  
  • putting the needs of others above our own (Philippians 2:3-4).
  • praying in unity (Romans 15:5-6)
