Perhaps you have read this prayer before, it has been aound for sometime..

This poem meant so much to me in my troubled time and my prayer is that it will touch someone today.

.~hugs to all who can relate.. May it bring some peace to you, as it did to me..

The Knots Prayer

Dear God,
please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots, and
might nots that find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all, dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind
my heart and my life all of the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

Amen.

I offer up a prayer in thanks to the Creator for looking over my wife during this uncertain time and I thank him for the wisdom in having me get her to the emergency room on time to save her life and to be with her now on her way to recovery.osay

Dear friends,
It has been 2+ months since I came to you requesting prayers for my friend with Leukemia. Today he entered into eternal life. While I am overcome with sadness at the loss of such a wonderful man, I thank God for His wisdom and know that my friend will no longer suffer this world. I ask your prayers for his family. He has left behind a wife and 3 daughters, also his parents and a sister and so many more who knew him and loved him.
Thank you for your prayers.

Shymonkey, there are many people who come here daily to read and say prayers ..Please find a little peace in that.

I am praying that God will put someone in your son's life who can help him through this relapse.

I am praying that your son will realize that only he has the power along with the help of God to turn away from his addictions..

I am praying that He will keep you strong and healthy through this ordeal that effects his loved ones.

Default Urgent Prayer Needed

A have heard from a friend that a child has been missing since yesterday morning. I don't know if this is just a teenager who is mad and decided to not come home. I actually hope that is all that it is. Please pray for him to return home soon. Pray for this family.

Default prayer update

The child has arrived home safe. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Seems there is some unrest.

Thank you for your faithfulness.

shelter and witness to thousands including entire families out on the street who are homeless.
displaced,hungery and often depressed.
