Prayer list

Blake and Alex by Susan Rios

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 
1 Peter 5:7

Here are a few things on my pray list that I am casting to the Lord in pray. 
  • My youngest son is currently job hunting, he isn't very enthusiastic and I think a little frighten of this new chapter of his life, please pray that he able to find a job, any job that provides a safe environment for him to learn and mature.  The world is a large and scary place for anyone, but particularly for a young man of (almost) 19. 

  • My eldest son is currently trying to find a better paid job and he is having some difficulties which gets him down.  He needs all the encouragement he can get and lots of praying.

  • My mum is unwell again and my dad needs prayers as he needs strength each day to care for mum and he gets so tired sometimes.  Being a full time carer is a hard occupation, made harder when you are getting older yourself. My father is doing such a brilliant job but often carers are forgotten when we focus on the person who is unwell.

  • My brother and sister-in-law are off to the USA on Monday, I'm praying that their journey there and back is safe and whilst away my sister-in-laws dad and partner remain in as good as health as possible.  I really want them to enjoy their trip away and not to worry.

  • Prays for my cousin's little boy who is unwell and needs to sit quiet for the next week or so - a very difficult ask for a small very active boy of 6. I think the whole family will need prayers as this will be a long week for all.  I think the family will be looking for ideas of entertaining a little boy who can't run about.  Do you have anything? 

  • Prayers for another cousin who is due to have a baby in the next few weeks - prayers that the little bub comes on time (not early like his/her sister) and easy.  Bets - I can't wait to hear the news, I love to hear about new babies in the family.

  • And, finally, even though not very important - my DH and I will be mulching the gardening today (Saturday) and it will be a very busy day with lots of heavy work - I am most certainly praying that my back is strong and holds up well. And, I know that rain is lovely, but dear Lord, please hold off until we have mulched the garden and there is nothing worse than icy cold weather + rain!!
And whilst not a worry - only the Lord knows what October will bring and therefore I will leave the next 30 days safely in his hands.
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He'll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.



  1. Thank you for the prayers for Danny - we certainly appreciate it! The children are looking forward to making gingerbread today - thank you for the excellent idea!! :)

    Will be praying for those other things - take care of your back today! xo

  2. Jo- I am touched by your prayer list and I've added your prayer needs to mine. It is so hard to watch our children struggle in the job market- I know- I've had my turn there. It takes a while- and the waiting is tough.

    I'm really sorry your Mother is unwell again- I know that is a heavy burden on your heart. I will certainly say a special prayer for her.

    Keeping a 6 year old quiet is never easy. Our little 3 year old grandson broke his arm this summer. An iPad totally saved the day. They have great apps- movies- coloring books and games for children. It is amazing and will definitely do the trick.

    I hope your family has a wonderful and safe trip to my side of the world--

  3. Thankyou so much Vicki for you kind words. I just wish I could find a job for my sons that were perfect, but I can't, it is a journey they need to make on their own (not quite on their own, with God).

  4. Clara - you must post photos of these ginger bread men and women, I can't wait to see them.

  5. Your list reminds me that we all have needs. Lovely to see the faithful way you are committing each matter to the Lord.
    I have noticed you are Joluise now. Is this your full name or just for internet? Very pretty.

  6. Ruby - Joluise is the name I use on all my photos so I decided to use it on the blog as well. It is a slightly altered combination of my names!! And I do love Luise but don't get to use to very often:)

  7. Agreeing with you in prayer. Totally understand the prayers for young adult children, have four at that stage, and I am praying for my teen. I think I pray more now that they are older.
    Prayers for the little one who needs to stay still...went through that last year when our 4 year old had a broken leg, prayers for them all...and healing.

  8. Coming to this late, but will be praying....
