It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made.
Prayer is the place of admitting our need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon God.
Prayer is the needful practice of the Christian. Prayer is the exercise of faith and hope.
Prayer is the privilege of touching the heart of the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8“
“Be anxious for nothing, 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 comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7“
Please pray the Lord would provide victory for me over this discouragement that I am going through right now and that He will send the right encouragement or word I need right now.
So yesterday there was a student yesterday who got in a car accident. He didn't have his seat belt on and he died. There are people in the school who are having a really hard time with it. The fact that it's the last week of school it makes people even less focused than they already were. There are also some people who are being mean about it and saying he was annoying anyway and that is hurting the people who are already hurting even more.
KJIL Note: Please pray for all the students and staff in this school and community to remain focused on finishing up school well, that adults would come along side them and offer comfort and a listening ear as they mourn the loss of a friend and fellow classmate. Also pray for love, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control for the staff and students as it says in Galatians 5:22-23 Most of all... pray for this young man's family and close friends. This is a difficult loss.
Trust & Gratitude
: Thank you, KJIL!!!
I always love listening to your station. Not only does it bring me daily inspirational, Bible verses but in many ways than one, the RIGHT songs I needed at a low moment in my life have played just at the TIME i tune into the station. The last couple of days have been extremely rough for me. I was so close to giving up on my faith, but thanks to praying partners and spiritual mentors, I didn't. This morning, I declared to myself that regardless what my circumstances make me think of God, I CHOOSE to TRUST in God!! Then I hear Lauren Daigle's song "Look up child", followed by "Praise you in this storm" by Casting Crowns. Talk of Divine moments. I believe it was just the assurance I needed to hear from God. Thank You, Lord. God bless you, KJIL for being a ray of hope and a shining light in our ever-dimming world.
My best friend, my collie needs prayer please!
: I have a dog, Nora, a collie. She's 9. She is my best friend, my only friend. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for her. She has a growing lump on her leg. I took her to the vet; they said she needs to have surgery May 3 to have it removed. Then it can be biopsied. She's never had surgery. She will have to spend the day at the vets. Please pray for it to go well & for her to be calm in a new scary enviornment.She's never been in a cage or kennel.She'll be so confused, frightened & worried. Please pray for God to fill her with peace, to guide the Drs hand; & for Nora to be treated with the care & compassion she deserves. Please pray for the 7-8 hrs to pass quickly for both her & I. Please pray for this experience to not traumatize her. She already hates when anyone leaves her, i dont want her to always think im going to leave her after I drop her off. Most of all, please pray for it to not be cancerous. Please pray that I am able to come up with the money needed in time. Please keep her in your prayers on May 3rd, & please pray for the doctors vigilance & perfection & for the pain to not be too bad. Please pray the time flies by for both of us that day & that I may I be reunited with her quickly. I know dogs sense the emotions of humans, so may I not be a bawling wreck as to not make this a more traumatic experience for her. I can't thank you enough for praying for her. Nora means the world to me, as would your prayers.
My marriage is struggling...we are newly married. Our daughter, my step daughter is planning on attending a local college. However, she is being persuaded to attend a different local Community college. Right now the if she attends the college of her choice, the first one mentioned. She will be living in the dorms. If it ends up that she goes to the local community college. She will be living with us. I am afraid, because right now her dad is not putting us (he & I) as a priority. She is a wonderful gal, but rules the house and him while we have her on the weekends. Another concern is her dad is controlling. I have heard how she wants to be on her own, to grow up. I just sense this is going to be harder on us.
Please pray for my wife and I.Her name is Lissa and we just had a screaming match last night and now she's gone to my son's house for a couple days.We haven't been apart in 21 years im terrified.I said some things a Christian shouldn't say but I'm upset about the murder of my Mother some 11 years ago.I cant shake the images in my mind and My wife seems to not understand and so we were arguing.I love her and I don't want to lose her please pray for us and my anger about this situation.God please help me to forgive.

Marriage and Comfort
Hi! I would like to ask you to pray for the love of my life, Molly Mo, and myself, Frank Daniels, as we make our way into life together! God is making many changes in our lives.. job-wise, strength-wise, and love-wise, and we love each other very much and we would like prayer for comfort from the Lord regarding our life together, and the strength to overcome any obstacles that may come up.. She lives in China, and myself in the US.. but we firmly believe that the Lord has brought us together and answered our prayers for a good husband & wife. Please pray for good health for us too. Pray for us to obey God’s commands for marriage, and for a healthy relationship!
I currently live in Ponca City, Oklahoma, but I recently applied for residence at an apartment complex in Moran, Kansas area down by Ft. Scott, Kansas. They are a low income/ income based apartments for people with disabilities to afford to live at. They have two one bedroom apartments available for rent and I sent my application into their management office, and are waiting to hear back from them for approval to be accepted to live at their apartment complex. I am believing God that he will make a way for me to be approved. for an apartment. Thank you for praying!
Influence and Priorities
Increase influence for Christ daily.
Stick to budget and priorities daily.
I am grateful for your prayer team, I would love to ask you all to help me pray for our country and the problems we are facing within it. I ask that we can bring this country back to God’s hands by taking the initiative to heal it from the inside, for it is an inside job. We need to be better Christians by being better parents and spouses, better through God’s. We need to build our country back to believing in God.
I would love to thank God for all He does everyday to enlighten me to be better and to not want to hurt His son anymore by living in the Light, even in the midst of the storm, I still praise His mighty name. I lost my little girl in August of 2017 and I am a single Mom with not two others, but now three small children (one rainbow baby) at home (God is STILL GOOD all the time...), and I am so grateful for His love throughout the year and a half we have endured since Lauralai left us to be in Jesus’ arms! I am convicted to live in the righteous way to get to see her again; and to make sure the other 3 make it there also...but it doesn’t stop there. We can harvest and multiply with good soil and just a mustard seed...watch it grow! Grow where we’re at, and I’m full of joy.
Thank you all for praying for our country with us. I am thankful for your team and for those God sends us, a side prayer for my friend Tim and healing from his surgery, as well as for two of my dear friends marriages and salvation and also one of my best friends heart to forgive. There are so many individual prayer requests, but I think the main point here is to get our own homes in order.
Continue to be blessed and to spread the gospel like wildfire! Y’all are awesome!
