Ways to Respond During Difficult Seasons
In time when the world is responding with panic and chaos, God's people respond well by remaining calm,
praying first, filling our hearts with God's word, and increasing our generosity.
Go to God as your first priority, not your last resort. We believe God is working supernaturally while we are working naturally.
PRAYER TO PRAY
Most Gracious Father,
We place our confidence and hope in You.
We ask You for protection, healing, and provision.
We ask You for wisdom to know how we ought to conduct ourselves as the body of Christ before a watching world.
We ask that You would open our eyes to see ways to love our neighbor as ourselves.
We ask You to use these uncertain and difficult times to bring renewal to our homes and communities. We ask that, by the power of Your Spirit, You would draw people far from You to place their trust in Jesus.
In Jesus’ name,
Filling Our Hearts with God’s Word
The unshakable foundation for our lives is God’s Word. It is our source of wisdom, comfort, and faith. It helps defines our current reality and illuminate our path forward.
SCRIPTURES TO MEDITATE ON
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down,
your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be at your side
and will keep your foot from being snared.”
— Proverbs 3:24-26 NIV
God’s people don’t shrink from difficult times, instead, we react in faith believing that God uses our increased generosity to meet needs and shine a light of hope into the darkness people around us are experiencing.
One of the biggest ways you can help is to automate your giving. Set up recurring giving so that no matter how often we are able to gather, God’s work can continue

Please pray for my return to The Lord Jesus Christ. I have drifted far from Him and have been severely backslidden. Please pray for my repentance toward God and faith toward The Lord Jesus Christ. Please pray for healing for my backsliding, my body,mind, soul and spirit. Please also pray for The LORD to help me with the trials that I am going to and for Him to stop the attacks of the enemy and my enemies against me. Please pray that all the wiles and schemes of the devil and his agents that are against me are exposed and confounded. Please pray for my deliverance from any and all satanic strongholds and bondages. Please pray that The LORD protects me from my enemies and provides for all of my spiritual and material needs. Thank you for your time and God bless you.

Can you pray that I book my acting gigs from my auditions from Talent Fusion? During the pandemic, I cut back completely. Now I'm jumping back in. I'm also looking into submit for representation from Heyman Talent and a Chicago talent agency named Gray Talent Group.
Dilemmas: I have quite a few expecting friends, and one of my bffs, Amelia is pregnant for the first time. I also need to get my passport. And I have enough money to get both the passport and her care package, but that's taking out of my fund for bachelorette party for a mutual friend. I would need to Lyft/Greyhound to Nashville, Tennessee for this (more on this later).
Also, I think my bff Amelia wants me to attend her labor and birth (or at least be in the area). I just want to have money to be there.
By the time the bachelorette party comes, the Amelia's baby will be here, but I want to have enough change to go to this bachelorette party. I told my bff that I would babysit for a bit and we can rotate so we can both spend time with our friend getting married. I just need a couple thousand dollars for each trip.
And finally, this is embarrassing as an adult, but my mother doesn't want me to get a driver's license & keeps coming up with every excuse under the sun as to why I should not have it (people in our family got killed in car crashes, this & that). She got hers at 16 but made sure I wasnt going to get mine. Please let me complete my driver's education course in time before all of this happens.

Please pray for my spiritual health as a Christian. In the past, I was involved in witchcraft, the occult and other new age practices. I have since given my life back to Jesus Christ, however, I am still dealing with the after effects of my time in this lifestyle. I have trouble making decisions, praying and I also have trouble truly accepting the gospel of Jesus Christ within my heart. I also have trouble with delusional thoughts. Every day is a battle. I experience constant spiritual attacks. This has led to me suffering from OCD because when I fail to do things the "right way", the attacks intensify. I also suffer from experiencing physical sensations related to the attacks. These physical sensations follow me throughout the day. It is very difficult for me to live a normal and healthy life because of all these things. Please pray that my life will be completely restored and that my mind will be completely healed. Thank you.

Asking God to consider my request for a second chance at a relationship with a young lady I have been praying about lately. Feel guilty and depressed that I lost an opportunity and need a second chance.Pray also for her salvation. I ask for prayers regarding this issue and if I could not have that second chance that God might let me meet my mate very soon.
