I am writing this in hopes of finding help for a family in need. �T� the mom is a single mom of three boys�. �M�, her youngest son, goes to school at my son's high school. During his freshman year, 2 years ago, he was diagnosed with Lupus. It has been a long struggle but �M� is doing well now. �T� has organized Lupus walks at the high school to help raise money and awareness in the past�but she will not be able to do this anymore. You see about 6 months ago she was diagnosed with Morvan�s Disease, a very rare autoimmune disease. Her condition deteriorated rapidly but as of late she is maintaining but her medical bills are mounting. Because of her condition she can no longer work. She struggles to keep her mortgage paid, power on and food on the table with her disability payments. I am aware of all this because she can no longer drive, so I will take her shopping or to the pharmacy when she needs me. Her son, �J�, was attending college in North Dakota and was going to graduate this May. �J� came home for Christmas and got sick. Since �T� can�t drive due to her illness, she had someone take �J� to Paulding County Hospital on Thursday 1/9. They sent him home saying he had a virus. Unfortunately, they did not draw blood or run any tests. On Sunday, 1/12, �T� called her sister and had her drive �J� to Piedmont Hospital where he was admitted and immediately and put on dialysis because his kidneys were shutting down along with other organs. They could not give him the amount of antibiotics he needed because the doctors were afraid his brain would swell and he would go into a coma. He is still at Piedmont Hospital on dialysis. While �J� was in the hospital, the doctors admitted his mother because her condition worsened do to the stress. Mother and son were 2 rooms apart. While she was in the hospital, her oldest son called her to tell her the power was off in her house. She called the power company to be told there was some sort of issue in her neighborhood. �T� returned home today to a house with no power. Every time she would reset the breakers they would pop. My husband went over to see if there was anything he could figure out. He noticed that everything would work fine until he flipped the heater breaker on. He went into her attic to look at her heater to try to figure out what was wrong. Even with everything going wrong the Lord was still looking after her. The heater breaker box in the attic had caught on fire. Some of the ashes had fallen on the floor of the attic and burned some insulation but thankfully that is as far as the fire went. Her oldest lives in the basement and would never have known if the house was on fire. If that fire had spread he most certainly would have perished. When I was talking with �T� she said, �the Lord was looking after me, I don�t care about the house and the stuff in side, I can live without them, but I do care about my boy and I am grateful nothing happened� The reason I am writing this is because she can repair the heater but there is a $1000 deductible with her insurance, but with all her medical bills and her 2 son�s medical bills she cannot pay the deductible, I want to help her but I do not have the financial means to help her out and I was hoping the radio station and/or its listeners might be able to help her. She believes the Lord will provide and would never think of asking strangers for help�.but maybe that is why I am here.

Please pray for my family and I. We have had one negative thing after the next happen to us. We have been looking for another car for a week now. My parents have been really nice to us, in letting us (my wife and I) to borrow their car. Now they said they need it back. We went yesterday to a company to buy a car and test drove it. Everything was good, so we went to get the money. All we could afford was 1000.00. Then the car broke down on 285 10 minutes after purchasing the car and she had her life put in danger. Now they won't give us the money back. They are saying there is no lemon law on used cars. But they told us that there was nothing wrong with the car. Now that we don't have a car or money. My wife and I and our 2 boys ages 5 and 2 are about to live on the streets. Cause we have no way to get to work or get my son to school. We are really struggling. We would love everyones prayers. Thanks.

Pray I will be called back to God and his word, I go to church now but I don't live by Gods word I filed a Divorce against my wife and I feel its all her fault. Pray I will have truths revealed to me from the Lord about me and about my wife and our marriage, Pray I gain strength to honor my vows and not throw my marriage and family away, Pray I am called back to Gods will for my life and that I stop living in sin, I need God badly. Ask God to show me any sin in me against him and to help me repent to him and change. I want to be a good person and I know I am not living by Gods will or word and I need prayers. Pray I will desire to change my ways and know Christ more and his love, I ask also I will be able to show my wife and family unconditional love like Christ. I never had it from my parents so I need Gods love and to learn what God wants me to do. Pray God will make me face the truths so I stop living in my own sin and selfishness and I become a new man with a n ew Heart

Our family has been struggling financially as have a great deal of the country. It seems like we will just never get ahead. I am a stay at home dad, and my wife works a physically demanding job that has her in pain more days than not. We have prayed for God to take the wheel and direct us, and we try to keep faith, but our limits are being tested. Please pray for us that she get the promotion and raise she deserves and that God bless us and guide us. Thank you.

Hello, I'm a ninteen year old who lives in the Bremen area. I'm posting this request because of what my life has become. I used to be very close to God and my faith was strong. But lately I've faded farther and farther and have been walking on the devils highway to hell. I've even started questioning my faith. I went from writing sermons and attending church as often as possible and doing everything I could to be stronger in my faith to cussing all the time and even drinking sometimes. I had a job not too long back but I started stealing food from the deli I worked in. So I was fired. I was lucky they didn't throw me in jail. But that was early November and ever since I've had difficulty getting an interview and if I do they never call me back and hire somebody else. I've had three interview the past couple weeks and I really need one of these jobs. I'm going to start going back to church and also I've tried to stop cussing and watching pornography and all the sinful things I've done. My most recent interview was an act of God. I was exercising in my room and just prayed for God to give me a way to live and support myself and not a minute later the pone rang. I did well at the interview I believe and I just want prayers that I receive the phone call I'm expecting tomorrow. So please just pray that I can get my life back under control and go back to living in that strong faith I once had. Thank you for everything you have done and hopefully everyone who meets me from now on will see Jesus in me. Thank you and God bless everyone.

I have written a piece of evangelistic foundational Christian literature - disguised as a short novel. It is intended for distribution in Pakistan and similar nations. Distributors are resistant because the style of the document is different than what they have distributed in the past. Pray that God will quickly change their hearts or that other distribution channels will open quickly.

Please pray for me as I feel like my life has no direction. This past year has been very tough for me as I allowed a new job to consume me to the point that I got away from God, my husband and children, my church and friends. I allowed that job to change who I was in order to prove that I could do that job. In the end, all it let me was heartache and pain. I spent the last year arguing with my husband, missing out on my kids and not attending church. If I did go to church, my mind was on my job. I constantly worried about my job all because of my boss. I ended up being demoted and felt like I was failure. What did this job do for me? Nothing but wasted time on what was really important. During the holidays, God has given me peace about everything. I have asked for forgiveness from God, my family, my church and friends. I am now trying to rebuild my life again and get back to the person I was before this job. As I continue to go to this job everyday, I wonder if God has any plans for me other than staying there. I have doubts about being able to find a job since my self esteem is so low, yet I don't know what I want to do. I have prayed to God several times if it is meant to be for me to stay there then give me peace. Everytime I have gone in for a job interview, the door is always shut. I hate being where I am at and feel all alone there. I ask my self, "surely God does not plan to keep me here forever does he?" and " what exactly can I do?" I wish God would just tell me exactly what my future holds!

A boy who I knew a while back was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Please pray for God's healing hand to touch him. A girl who I know had her dad die to a heart attack recently. Please pray for God's hand to heal her and her family and to bring them peace about this tragedy.
