I am asking for prayer from the church as a whole. I've been a member of the word for years. When I left Cleveland in 2004 to serve in the US Navy I became a different person. I'm married my spouse is a member here at the word as well. I'm asking for prayer because I want to learn to love my wife and children. I haven't been the best husband or father. I'm currently separated from my wife who I've been married to for going on 13 years. I don't want it to end in divorce. I've recently gotten back to going to church I had lost my way years ago due to the life in the military. I'm looking for spiritual guidance in my life right now. My wife is doing good right now in her life which has motivated me to want to get back in the church. God has been blessing her all while going through our troubles. So I ask that he does the same for me, help me get back on the right tracks so I can be the man he wants me to be. I believe in God and I'm wanting to get back in touch with him. Pray that we make it though this troubled patch. Thank you all! God Bless!!

Please pray for me,my daughter, grandchildren and their father. About 14 years ago my daughter who is my only child started dating my grandchildren father, she was so excited and happy when she met him, eventually after about two weeks of dating I met him. After he left my daughter asked me what I thought, and my response was I don't think he's the one. From the very first day I met this guy I knew right away he was bad news, he didn't even look me in my face when I was trying to do what most caring and loving parents do, cross examine him to get a better fill of who he is after all my daughter was a honor student from 1st grade through 12th. She graduated with an Honors Diploma from Euclid High School in 1997 with a 4.0 grade average then went to John Carroll University and earned a Bachelor Degree along with her Masters. Moving forward after about 6-12 months of dating this guy my daughter decided to call it quits, because just as I suspected this guy has deep dark rooted emotional childhood issues that he has never deal with. I was so happy she broke it off with him, only to find out 8-10 weeks later she was pregnant with my first grandchild. She eventually called to informed him she was pregnant and hear we are 14 years later. Per conversations with him and my daughter he comes from an abusive household, his Mom has Health Behavioral Issues and he and several other family members were placed in foster homes. When he was about 17 or 18 years of age he joined the Navy did about 4-6 years and that's pretty much all I know about him. after years of only knowing him I finally met one of his sisters in December of 2014 or 2015. Even though my daughter has been dealing with this emotional unhealthy relationship for years, things started to spiral out of control when she lost her house and moved in with him two years ago. My daughter decided to leave a high paying job about 7-8 years ago and start her own business. Although I thought she was crazy I've always supported my daughter in hers dreams and aspirations, I've taught her to always try and strive than never try and never know. She still has the business it's called "Lovely Homes". She also home schools my two grandchildren one is 6 and the other is 12. The oldest has informed me of several alarming situations, the first was on New Years Eve in 2015 when we were preparing to go to New Years Ever Service and the father became angry and told my daughter he didn't want my two grandchildren to go to church with me, he wanted them to stay home an celebrate New Years Eve at home. Anyway he pulled a gun out on my daughter and since then my grandchildren have seen Guns on many occasions. Once her father came in her a room with a gun another time the gun was laying on the dining room table and did I mention he drinks alcohol all the time. He has begun to abused my oldest grandchild by grabbing her by the neck busing her arm throwing her to the floor and a couple of times has kicked her. When he is confronted by my daughter he lies and tries to act like it not as big as my granddaughter makes it out to be. I've mention the Gun situation to my daughter and her response is she is trying to save up enough money to move. I don't believe her, because all of the things he done and will continue to do she could have moved in with me. I feel she is not protecting herself or my grand kids and that she has been around this dark emotional bondage that she's in complete denial of whats going on. Me my daughter and grandchildren are members of the Word church we Serve in kids Ministry although my daughter doesn't come to church as much, in fact I believe in 2016 my daughter missed quite a bit of Church we have been members since about 2006 or 2007. The kids father of course has visit the church but is not a member and he doesn't attend any church. She is angry with GOD because she doesn't understand how he would have allowed her to loose her home and eventually end up in the a house of horror.. Please PRAY for this family because I beginning to loose focus of myself because I'm so consumed with trying to figure a way to reach and help by daughter out of this unhealthy relationship. Truth be to told Church in 2016 seemed off for me but me and my grandchildren continue to push through and have Faith that GOD is in complete control.

I have two prayer requests. 1) I'm in school online with the University of Phoenix and I request prayer for God to continue blessing me with his infinite wisdom and power to help me get through two financial accounting classes that I have been struggling with. 2) Ask God to continue to sustain me in his grace, mercy, and strength to continue to deal with a sciatic nerve pinch in my back until I am scheduled for corrective surgery. I am scheduled to visit with my surgeon on March 15th. Thank you all and my God, our Father in heaven bless your lives.

I\'m in such a dark place right now, till I don\'t really know where to begin all I do know is that I can\'t let Satan keep showering me with his flowers of suicide and death. I am a member of the WORD Church and was active up until about 3-4 months ago. I was tithing before that the best I could , since I lost me job on 12/15/2015 and haven\'t been employed since. My husband died 5 years ago and since then my life has been on a downward spiral. I\'m losing my home, I don\'t have a job (can\'t find one), and therefore no money to secure a home after living here for 15 years. I\'m at my wits end, but I heard that that would be the time that God will step in and do what He does best. But until then I\'m overwhelmed, and I don\'t know what to do. I\'m depressed because I can\'t see my way, I am attending college right now, because that is the only thing that makes me think clearly. I pray without ceasing, I\'m trying to keep my faith, but the tempter tells me what\'s the use, because this life don\'t owe me nothing any more. I\'m 57 and I want to believe that my last days will be my best days, but if I don\'t get a breakthrough, I\'m going to be through. I know I should come to church, but did I mention that my car is sick too, no AAA and I lost my insurance, see I have a laundry list of weary woes and struggling to keep my faith. I need to be in the midst of the saints worshiping and praising God for His mercy, grace, unmerited favor, and His undying love for me, but I just can\'t seem to get it out of me even though I feel it way down inside. I would really like to talk to Elder Stacey Collins if it is possible, that\'s another one of my issues, I need a spiritual counselor to speak into my life now while I yet live. I know I\'ve said a lot, and yet a lot has not been said. HELP, I need nothing short of a miracle in my life now, but to God be all the glory, honor and praise!

UPDATE!!! Thanks for all the prayers. Things are finally coming together. I started tithing EVERY dime I get and already God is turning things around. I've have been blessed with a great opportunity. I must say me trusting God, your prayers and tithing faithfully has changed my life and it's only been almost a month. I'm working on my first fruits. I'm excited for what Jesus has planned for me. Trust believe and tithe and watch how God makes a way. Thanks everyone!!!

I wanted to say thanking for praying for my friend's daughter, 6 year old Alia who was injured in a car accident involving a drunk driver. Alia didn't make. Her mother is still in the hospital and will continue to fight for justice as soon as she is able. Please pray for the healing of this mother and her family and let justice be served.
