PRAYER WARRIOR's All Faiths -- 2013 continued ...
:angel: Time to start a new thread ladies and gents ~

So much to pray for but looking back I see so many prayers have been answered in ways that have brought happiness and understanding into our lives.

God does hear our prayers and answers them in His will and in His time as we bring them to Him through His Son.

May the new year bring us here often to share our needs and pray for all who ask.

Many more blessings in 2013 are waiting for us ... :D

:welcome: to our newest ALL FAITHS -- PRAYER WARRIOR's THREAD for the remainder of 2013 ~ I just noticed that we are over the 500 post limit once again, so we must start a fresh one at this time. Let us continue our prayers here for GARY, and everyone else who has made recent requests the last few days. Please feel free to post them in this new thread, so we can see them again ...

I have also posted a CURRENT PRAYER LIST here on page 1, so that you can go back to reference it anytime you like. This thread can get so long, so it is a handy feature to be able to just go there and see who needs praying for. I try to put as many requests in it as I can. Please send us updates so that we can keep it as current as possible as well.

Thank you all for your prayers for everyone here ... :hug:

Justwant2Bhealthy 03-03-2013 04:56 PM


Thank you all so much. You have no idea what peace this forum has brought me since I found all of you.

ELVISLOVER ~ oh, I have said that many times ever since I came to this forum, as the others here well know. Over the years they have prayed for a leg that took 2 years to heal; when we were left homeless; DH's Alzheimers diagnosis, and other daily issues & healing; "numerous" family health issues, esp cancer; when buying our home; this WL/good health journey; plus my tumor and cancer issues; and now going through the chemo, just to name a few.

This place and these people mean a great deal to me; they have been with me, and prayed with and for me & my family so much over the last 6 + years. Their faithfulness and encouragement has helped me in untold ways; no-one but our LORD truly knows.

We do know how you feel; and the prayers will continue on and on until they are answered one way or another ... :hug:

TRISH ~ sending up ^prayers^ that your son's foot heals speedily ... :)


I thought this recent post from ELVISLOVER was important to put in here becuz it shows just how helpful and important this PRAYER WARRIOR'S THREAD is to us, and so many other people as well. :angel:

elvislover324 03-03-2013 05:09 PM

Thank you so much, Rosebud. Your post made me cry before I even saw the one you posted to me. The prayer list was beautiful, thank you for taking the time to post everyone and our prayer needs. I am praying for every single one there. God is good and he hears our prayers.

This thread has helped me so much with my mental/spiritual state which in turn helps me calm myself to focus on my weightloss. My weightloss is instrumental in helping my cancer issues and it's the one thing I can control as long as I keep myself focused.

Thank you Rosebud, you have no idea how very thankful I am to have met you and the other wonderful posters here.:hug:

bargoo 03-03-2013 06:15 PM

If I haven't said it before I will say it now. I have tried going on a cancer website and checked out their chatrooms and various forums. It was too depressing I could not stay there. I find 3FC in general to be much more positive and uplifting and the Faith Based Support Group to be Christ centered and God believing and full of hope, not despair. My health issue is cancer but on these boards I have read of many illnesses and disabilities some much worse than mine. I thank God for 3Fc in general but Faith Based Support Groups in particular. God Bless every one who is or has posted in this forum.

Just want to update on our situations--
Leitha passed away, but her family is doing well. They know they will see her again when they join her in the LORD's holy presence.
DS1 and his wife are back together--they do still have some struggles. DS1 has been diagnosed bi-polar and must stay on meds and not have alcohol, which may be a contributing factor to their issues. His real mom is a bi-polar alcoholic who has refused any kind of treatment for either, so she sets a poor example of how to behave and be responsible, but DS1 just gravitates to her and her messes.
My own mom, June, is doing so incredibly well! Completely healed from her hip replacement. She also figured out that she's allergic to wheat and has been able to go off the meds for her bipolar schizophrenia and has had NO return of any of the symptoms. (There's a lot of research out there connecting mental health issues with food allergies-we just stumbled upon some of it awhile back and decided to take a leap of faith.)

Thanks for all prayers on our family's behalf. Like everyone says, this is the best place to go for support with everything, not just weight issues:grouphug:

One new prayer request--I have a friend from high school who's 22-year-old daughter, Jenna C., has been diagnosed with a cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. It has already metastasized to bones in her spine and hips. She is in hospital now (& has been for 2 weeks as she was so ill when she came home from college she could not even stand on her own) and will be for quite a while longer. She has had a couple surgeries already and has started very intense chemo 2 days ago, but is already having difficulty eating due to nausea. Please lift her and her family up in your prayers. She's a Christian who has a degree in Biblical Studies and works with little children in daycares and churches. Thank you!

Justwant2Bhealthy 03-04-2013 01:00 PM

THANKS FOR THE UPDATES, RONNI ~ I had been praying for LEITHA right up to last night; happy that she is with the LORD and her family has peace. PRAIZE GOD that your DS1's family is back together: praying for deliverance from alcohol & related issues. Have added JENNA C to the current list above as well.

PRAYER REQUEST ~ for me -- I have been blessed with few side effects until yesterday; and had a bad outbreak of acne on the T-part of my face, but especially my nose and it is red, swollen, and sore. My uncle had the same thing happen from his chemo meds. I pray that my immune system will be able to fight back soon; at first, they suppress it so the meds can kill any cancer cells that may be there.

In the next few days, my immune is supposed to rejuvenate itself (from around the 10th day and on), so that should help a bit too, I think. I can always cover the acne up but it's the pain/swelling issues that are not pleasant. I am taking extra vitamins and eating extra stuff with vitamin A/E in it to try and help my skin issues too. Thanks everyone ... :hug:

elvislover324 03-04-2013 01:55 PM

:hug:Praying for you, Rosebud.:hug: So sad you are dealing with those side effects, I hope you are feeling better very soon.

Justwant2Bhealthy 03-04-2013 10:13 PM

THANKS, EL ~ I appreciate that so very much ... :hug:

PRAYER REQUEST ~ could you put up a little prayer for my sister, Wendy -- for her job. She works for a major insurance company that is always getting on her case to do more and more work. She already does her own full-time job, plus they get her to do call-center work on top of that (answering calls). She's a trouble-shooter for her company; and she solves problems for them and other employees. She has always worked her butt off for this company; putting in untold hours of unpaid overtime for years and years, but they are never satisfied. She gets disheartened when they do this to her and could use some prayers ... THANKS!

Rosebud, will keep Wendy in prayer, it is so disheartening to know we are doing our best and are not appreciated. Her immediate supervisor probably has his/her supervisor on his/her case to do better and is passing the workload down the line. Job situations are not always fair.

Justwant2Bhealthy 03-06-2013 02:46 PM

THANKS, EVERYONE -- for your prayers for my family and me. Still sending up continuous prayers for GARY that he will heal quickly and completely; no more infections, etc. :hug:

Prayer request for Jimmy and Sherri
Hello everyone, I am new here but I am so thrilled to see there is a faith thread! I have a prayer request, please pray for my brother in Christ Jimmy. He's in the midst of terminal bone cancer. He has started some radiation treatments to prolong, which is effecting him horribly. He goes to Pittsburgh in the AM to start the heavy doses. We are praying for a miriacle and a healing over this man. God is good, I've seen my friends faith blossom in this trail and I am grateful for that. Please pray for his sweet wife, she carries a heavy burden on her shoulders. I ask also that you pray for my friend Sherri. She's been battling this devil cancer for years! She had a double mastectomy, then they found some in her spine. She's refusing further treatment at this point because of the side effects and is being riddled with it now. I pray she finds a church where people can love on her more fully, and of course I also pray for her healing, especially for her young sons.

Thank you so much for laying this before the God of Healing~Jehovah Rapha
God Bless you for your prayers...

Justwant2Bhealthy 03-07-2013 06:54 AM

LOVEGROVEMAMA ~ have sent up ^prayers^ for JIMMY & SHERRI; and added them both to our current list for further prayers as well ... :hug:

PRAYER REQUEST ~ my SM (stepmother) GRACE is having surgery again today (for her bladder cancer); prayers it all goes well for her with minimal side effects & quick healing. Also, her son (Jeff R) had a heart attack in December; he is doing better now, but is stressed becuz he has been having trouble finding work. I know they both would appreciate the prayers; thanks!

bargoo 03-07-2013 09:47 AM
