Dear friends,

The heart is so deeply sad and I pray I may connect with a dear friend tomorrow. We haven't talked in a few days since a sad occurrence. I pray you will too pray for my relationship with "Chris".. that we may connect tomorrow, that blessings will come upon a dear friendship, and that I may find peace in my heart.
Humbly and prayerfully

My heart is deeply hurtins :_(... please pray for a relationship with my dear friend Chris... recent events brought me to touch the deepest of hurts and sometimes I argue with the Good Lord trying to understand.

Hi everyone.

I'm starting college in the fall, and the person I love more than myself is too, except that she's going a few states away, and we're not going to see each other often. We've talked about it, and I know we love each other a lot, but I can't seem to shake this apprehension and dread that even though college is going to be such an amazing experience, we're going to fall out of love and wind up hating each other, and I don't think I could bear that.

On top of that, I'm coming to realize that my gender is a lot less binary than previously anticipated (or perhaps actually more binary, because I was pretty sure it was nonbinary and now I'm feeling more transgender than genderqueer, even though those can be synonymous, and the whole thing is just a big mess, really), and so not only am I going to be moving to an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people, I'm also going to be transitioning socially, if not medically, and that's a scary thing. Both schools I'm considering have fairly safe campuses and LGBTQetc groups, but just because I'll probably be fairly safe from violence doesn't mean I'll be accepted.

I was hoping you could pray with me to help me find peace of mind from my worrying, and for the strength not to be intimidated out of doing the things I need to do.

Thank you, and happy Easter or Ostara or Passover or whatever else you might be celebrating.

Day two of journey [08 Apr 2009|12:04pm]

I was given a gift today, a symbol that I have the ears of the divine.  I found something that was lost that was very dear to me.  I understoond that as I found that tiny object, I can be "found" again.

I ask for continued prayers for the continuation of my journey back to my path in the light.

Prayer for new beginning requested [08 Apr 2009|01:11am]
siebaehr

I am asking for prayers and energy to help me begin a new life. I also need to unburden "baggage" from my old life, and to become more centered.

I have a heavy heart and cannot define the cause. I know I must lose the  burden but am having trouble defining just what is wrong.  I do not feel depressed or anxious, but just burdened.  I also feel "blocked" spiritually and emotionally.

Tonight was the beginning of my ritual of letting go and bannishing the negative and burdensome from my life. I need to draw in light and energy to achieve the power to live productively. I must assume fault for straying from and neglecting my path of spirituality.  Tonight I made a conscious decision to put myself back on track.

By borrowing on an affirmation I will lighten this load. I do feel the need to ask for help from others and was lead to this site by my guide.  I am asking you to pray and send energy for me to be able to be back on track. I want to be able to contribute to healing and helping others again.

Thank you in advance.  May you all walk in light and love and with the blessings of the Great Spirit and Gods.

 I'm new to the community, just joined livejournal (again) tonight and am trying to make some changes in my life. When I was younger, I was very passionate about God. But as the years passed by I lost my fire... my passion. I lost myself along the way. Sometimes I even struggle with living, but I'm trying to think positive and pray for guidance from God. I have several prayer requests, if someone would pray for me and my friends I'd be very greatful.

You see, I'm one of those people who is afraid of good things I guess? If something is going good, and things start to change I get scared and end up ruining it on purpose. I was losing weight, and this past week all I've done is gorge and destroy my success. I do the same with friendship anymore. I'm afraid to get close to people because they either die or they leave me behind. Pathetic right? I guess I need a little help with my fears. Haha ... please?

Also, please pray for this two month old baby. Thursday while at work my co-worker learned that her niece's baby was air lifted to the hospital with a skull fraction from blunt trama to the head and bleeding on the brain. According to the child's father the baby "may have hit his head on the wall". Last I checked (Friday afternoon) the child was still in I.C.U.

I'm having a hard time not passing judgement against the father in fact I've verablly said what was on my mind. But please pray for the child and that the truth will come to surface. Thank you!

Greetings Journal Friends,

Both Minnesota and North Dakota residents are scrambling as the flooding paired with difficult weather has caused much damage already and the flood waters have not yet peaked.  Thankfully many of the hospital and nursing home residents have been evacuated, yet too we need to pray for the safety of all and that the damage will be minimized.

Any prayers would be appreciated...
Thank you

It has been some time since I posted here.. yet I am so very sad just now. Though I thrive in relationships, sadly with one most loved so often I stumble.  Please pray for my relationship with Chris... please pray we will connect soon; please pray we will work things out such that peace will come to the heart.  Daily I pray for blessings upon a life long, mutually loving, soulful and intimate relationship.. yet just now I hurt so deeply
I hurt so deeply
Blessings upon all who stop by
and all who pray

Dear Friends,

I am so deeply humbled to admit that amidst my fervent faith, hope, love, optimism, and fervent love of life,...
my heart is broken just now

I humbly request prayers
and pray God will bless you too...

I cannot but hope and pray that a year from now in the dawn of a new year,  my heart will be smiling brighter as today was one of the saddest of my life...

Prayers to you,
humbly

These words from a Rich Mullins song, "Hold me Jesus".. play through my heart just now...

Well, sometimes my life just don't make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small

So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul
I swear there must be blisters on my heart

So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace


....

Journal FriendGreetings friends,

It has been some time since I posted a prayer, yet I admit, the heart is hurting just now.  A dear friend and one most loved in my life is in town yet there have been barriers to get together and I haven't had the chance to directly connect.  We have traversed many joys, yet too sadnesses and heartache. Please pray we will connect soon via phone, and yet too in person and for beauty to be upon this relationship.  I love him dearly, and just now I really hurt.
 

 

Thank you for listening
blessings to you

Prayer request(s) [06 Dec 2008|08:52am]

byrthebb
Dear Heavenly Father,

Many thanks for Your Love and Mercy. Thank You for Your Son who came to save us.
I come now asking for Your divine intervention in several matters.
Please Dear Lord I ask You to shine Your Light of Healing, Love and Mercy down upon Steve. I don't know Steve very well Dear Lord but You do. You know he is sick and needs Your healing. I ask if it is Your will that he survive that You will heal him. Prayers also for his wife Denise. Send Your Light of Comfort and Love to her Dear Lord. They both need You desperately now. I ask also that You send them strength to deal with this and that they stay strong in their faith in You. I pray they will stay strong and continue to know that without You they can do nothing.
Dear Merciful Lord, I also ask for Your help in staying strong. I pray that I may and will stay strong and faithful. You know my financial situation is not so great right now. I realize I am not the only one in this situation. You know this as well. Please Dear Father, I need a job. A source of income. I know You will provide in any event. I pray that I can accept Your will no matter what that may be. I also realize there may be many dark days ahead, not just for me but for many others. Again- Your will be done Lord but I just need to remember to Keep the Faith and keep Believing in You, no matter what happens.
Heavenly Father- I ask these prayers and prayers for so many others. You know who they are Dear Lord. Please send your Love and Mercy down upon us. I ask all of this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You Lord. Amen

I'd appreciate prayers from this community.. here is the post and situation.
Thank you and blessings:

Well here I sit, the day before I am meeting with my boss.   Some of my journal friends have followed the sad events of recent... yet too they date back a few years.  I have not only had my mail breached, yet too my office and there have been other sad acts, and previous attempts to discuss this with her.  I have hard evidence of some acts, soft of others, and she is merely suspected but the only one with motive for the other acts. . .. I admit, this has caused me much stress as traditionally I get along so well with others, including supervisors, yet clearly there is a sense of competition (from her) that has brought much stress. 

So tomorrow I meet with her for goal setting.  It is ironic as she is only my supervisor in "name" as we hold the same class of professor, I have a higher degree, and I actually chaired the committee that originally selected her.  I think highly of much of her work, yet cannot deny there is a true tension there and she has had recent sad and hurtful acts for which she doesn't know that I do know she is the one. ...  So my prayer requests are for wisdom.  On the one hand I feel as though I should talk with her in stern firmness in hopes this all goes away, on the other hand, if I do so, others become involved and this could temporarily cause stress and sadness beyond the two of us.  ... So my dilemma is in the response.  My emotions aren't at the high stress level they were two weeks ago, yet too, I admit, I know not what to do.  This morning I am taking the rare and unusual step of attending a church I regularly visit (not the one we are members of).  I plan to go up for prayer in hopes of hearing kernels of wisdom from the Good Lord and from others in the Christian community.  ....   Its funny how life brings hills and valleys, ... sometimes both at the same time!

I pray these sad and hurtful acts end
and I pray I may have a kernel of wisdom
and that the Good Lord will guide me
and hold me in His arms
tomorrow
and always...

and may God hold any journal friend who stops to visit
and surround you with peace...




"Each morning is a fresh beginning.  We are, as it were, just beginning life.  We have it entirely in our own hands.  And when the morning with its fresh beginning comes, all yesterdays should be yesterdays, with which we have nothing to do."  (quoted and photo from the conscious living foundation)

prayers for peace [11 Sep 2008|08:51pm]

journalfriend

Amidst the waves of the past month and my internal strength and optimism, I admit, the breaches to my mail and office and subsequent actions and needs to report have left me at times feeling very stressed, sad and hurt.  I hold to faith, hope and love, yet sometimes we face our humanity in ways we least expect.  Today though I had no intention of sharing with anyone, I actually told a colleague what was on my mind.  I feel a bit vulnerable and perhaps shared too much; I pray not.  I too have been struggling with whether to confront my boss.  I have held this in prayer for some time and when visiting a chuch, actually went up for prayer.  Amidst prayer the woman told me she thought I should be patient in this; something I have struggled with.  No one likes to feel harrassed and having formerly worked in the psychiatric forensic system I am all too familiar with concerning behaviors that develop patterns of response.  So today I bow and prayer, and perhaps ask for continued prayers as I just wish for peace in my heart, for peace and healing with my boss or that perhaps if she is indeed guilty (I know she is guilty of some behaviors as I have hard evidence) that it be addressed.  I too pray for a friendship most dear and special to me and that the joy I so often have in my heart blanket the unrest, stress and hurt from all of this. 

Today I too think of the Anniversary of 9/11. ... Perhaps we can all (at least here in America) remember where we were when we got the news.  I was teaching a psychosocial assessment and intervention class.  I felt shocked as the tragedy hit. ... Perhaps now is the time for prayer...

Oh dear Lord,  I come to the journal knowing that you hear every prayer that is laid upon our heart and cries out to you. .... You know my joys, my cries, my recent stress and sadness over events, and my cries to you for wisdom, peace, resolution and healing.  Sometimes it is hard to be patient Lord, sometimes we wish for resolution to come in our time, not yours.  Lord, I too pray that today I have not made things worse by sharing with a colleague.  I pray that this be resolved as well and that she is given the strength to preserve confidentiality.  Lord, amidst the strife in the world, and all the unrest, I too pray for peace in all the war torn areas, for peace in places of oppression, and that as a nation and global community we can focus on reconciliation and permit healing rather than hurt.  ....  Lord, amidst the unrest in my soul, I pray for peace, and that I may be a lasting, loving beautiful part of the world.
Humbly
amen

I know not who may stop by, but amidst the busy onset of the academic year, I could really use prayers just now.  Sending my little one off to college was a big step... and both sad and exciting.  Yet she is where I teach and therefore thankfully we get to see one another.  Sadly though, I had mentioned my mail had been stolen twice, well the harrassment continues yet indirect and inadvertant.  It is a long story that I won't go into but I am in such a dilemma as it is directed via my supervisor (so to speak) and brings deep concern.  I can't file a direct report for a number of reasons, one is that I want to protect my dear daughter and do not want to cause problems just now... especially since my supervisor doesn't know that I know some of these actions are from her. .. 

I hold to such faith, hope, optimism and energy in life
yet this is so sad and difficult
and indirectly also involves a dear friend external to the college
with whom both she and I are colleagues
Please if you would
pray for peace in my heart
for wisdom
and that even as early today
I may feel some resolution
in a way that breeds love
not anger, sadness and hurt

Thank you
Thank you

Merry meet,

We're in a situation that money is very tight because of a lack of employment and lack of child support.

We've been doing everything we can to legally get money, including borrow from my son's Dad (who does pay child support- the other Dad in the picture doesn't). But it's not enough.

We've decided to move to a nearby city so that my FH and I can go back to college so we can get better jobs, but we'll have to have money for that as well as for the bills we currently have. (We only have 3 bills- rent, power, and phone/internet. We don't subscribe to cable, the newspaper, eat out- nothing that costs extra money. We don't even rent movies.)

And on top of everything else, my son turns 7 this Thursday and we can't get him anything because we just don't have the money.

So here's what I need help with. I'm an artist, and I've listed some of my works on CraigsList, but so far I've only had one person show any interest and he hasn't emailed me back yet to let me know if he's definitely going to buy the painting. I really need him to decide to buy it and to PayPal me the money as soon as possible so I can direct it to my bank account and have access to it.

Please direct your energy toward this sale. Or any sale.

Thank you so much in advance.

Blessed be.

Prayer Request [10 Aug 2008|07:47am]

Good Morning Friends,

I admit, I do use this journal prayer site on occasion, and am heartened to see others here as well.  I could use prayers for peace, healing, and a relationship so dear to me.  This past week my personal mail was breached at work.  This has been so stressful that i got sick. ... Yet I am scheduled to travel to visit one most dearly loved in my life this week.  So I humbly request prayers for peace, for healing physically-emotionally-spiritually, and for beautiful healing and growing time with one most dearly loved.

He means a great deal to me
and I pray all is well
all will be well
and life can move on in beautiful ways
Humbly and prayerfully

Please pray for my uncle George. He's dying of terminal lung cancer and he's finally become so weak that he can't get up. My parents are with him now. The pain he's in isn't even existance for him anymore. He's skin and bones. Please pray that he will pass quickly and without any more suffering. Please.

I also humbly ask that you pass this around as much as you can to areas where it is deemed appropriate. Thank you so much. God Bless.

 Can you please pray for my brother Marc.  He was in a very bad relationship and this person beat him,  broken his foot and cut him very badly.   My Mom went to AR to get him and take him home.  So please pray for safe travel too.  Thanks so much.
