Friend Rick Keyes writes with this prayer request:

My brother the AC130 pilot is in the hospital in Landstuhl with a non combat related sickness however it is serious enough they evaced him as soon as they could.  Any prayers and thoughts that could be sent his direction would be greatly appreciated.

Done.  Actually, send your thoughts to Rick and his brother, your prayers in the direction of God.

    Thank you Lord Jesus for your death on the cross paying the price for our sins. Thank you Jesus for the love, mercy, and grace you give to us. Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing my cry to you during this great time of trial and persecution. The following is quick synopses of the events that have occurred: My family and I have been through some very trying times over the past six years. We have been greatly betrayed and hurt by family, friends, and the church over the past many years. loss of career (fire Service), loss of second career (community college instructor) loss of home, loss of cars, loss of most personal belongings, identity theft (loss of 10,000 dollars), predatory lending loss of 30,000 dollars, head-on car accident with an unregistered, unlicensed, and uninsured illegal alien drunk driver causing moderate injuries and rehab for 6 months, physical depression, anxiety, loneliness, feeling lost, confused, alone, arrested and put in jail (from an emotional breakdown, depression and anger), forced to be separated from family for past year because my family had to move in with my parents in California and I had to stay in Colorado, homeless, jobless, bankrupt, credit destroyed, loss of child, multiple deaths in family and out of work four (4) of the past six (6) years from two different lay-offs. I too want to confess my sins and wrong doings; for I am a horrible sinner that has sinned many times against my Lord and savior. Lord forgive me please and help me to be a good husband, father, son, brother, friend, and co-worker.
    We need prayer for the following: That the Lord Jesus Christ and His Father our God will forgive us of all our sins and wrong doings. That the Lord will forgive those that have sinned against us and that He will help us to forgive those that have sinned against us and that we may learn to forgive ourselves. I ask for the Lords Forgiveness in all of our sins and wrong doings, our weakness in mind, body, and spirit, our lack of patients, anger, frustration, miss- understanding, lack of trust and faith. I ask that our Lord Jesus would have pity on us and grant us with His mercy and grace in our lives. I pray the Lord will bring us back together, strengthen, bless, and protect us thoroughly as a family. (Scott, Wife Jennifer, Grace 7, Tyler 3, Justin 2). I ask that Jesus would bless us financially; redeeming all that has been lost. I pray and thank the Lord for our safety and our health. I pray that our Lord would give me wisdom, strength, insight, and all that is required to find a new career that would significantly provide for us as a family. I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ would also use the skills and talents that the Lord blessed me with at birth as well as my heart’s desire to find the right career. I pray that this would bring Him glory and happiness. I pray for a home for my family that would meet our needs and even realize our dreams collectively as a family living in Colorado. I pray we can get completely out of debt and recover our good credit. I pray that we can get a car(s) again so we can get around and accomplish the tasks that are in front of us as they are needed. I pray for a good home church were we can praise our Lord and learn His true word. I pray that we can get immersed in this church as a family meeting new friends and being good stewards and servants. Please Lord Jesus hear, forgive, intervene, protect, and go forth with our request presented through prayer and petition to Your Father our God. Please Jesus, ask your Father our God earnestly and with great haste to answer our prayer. Show us you’re great Mercy, Grace, Love, almighty power, and truth that we would know and experience You, our Lord Jesus Christ, and all of your greatness in our lives. Jesus is the way the truth and the life and He and He alone has the answers and the ability to change our life as He has already demonstrated through His death and resurrection. May the Lord Jesus Christ hear and be blessed with this prayer in Jesus Christ-Son of God- holy and blessed name, amen.
