Tyre will Return to Her Hire as a Prostitute

Tyre will Return to Her Hire as a ProstituteTyre will return to her hire as a prostitute. Yet her profit and earnings will be set apart for the Lord. Her profits  will go to those who live before the Lord for abundant food and fine clothes. ~ Isaiah 23:17-18

Karen desperately needs a job. Will you help her?

Lord, care for John’s spouse who is a stroke victim. He is disabled vet with lots of medical problems. Both need your love, protection, and care.

Lord, here is Karen’s petition: (a different Karen – You have lots of people with the same name 🙂

We desperately need your prayers as we currently find ourselves in great financial. Both of us are up in age; health problems have rendered us disabled. Our combined Social Security is less than $1,500.00 per month. After making our mortgage payment of $501.00 we barely manage to make ends meet. So far we have managed to squeeze by, but our resources are depleted. Last week the engine blew up in our old Taurus. To replace the engine the cost would be $6,000.  As an older car the repair cost would exceed the car’s value. We are in a dire situation. We live in a rural area, with no neighbors and no family anywhere even close. The closest town is more than a dozen miles away. We have no way to buy food, medication, or keep our doctor appointments.  Please pray for us. We need a miracle.

Lord, please, please send a miracle! 

I Am the Man Who Has Seen Affliction

I Am the man Who Has Seen Affliction I am the man who has seen affliction. God has driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light. I have forgotten what prosperity is. Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. Lamentations 3: 1, 17, & 22.

Lord, have mercy on me. Forgive my sins. Wash me in the blood of Christ. Keep me from harm. Keep me from sin.

God said, “I will be with you. I AM who I AM. This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” Exodus 3:14, 15

Lord, be with me today. Bless all my efforts. Help me to market our books and find new readers, editors, managing editors, and individuals who wish to make a small amount of money promoting our books.

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him. Lamentations 3:25

Father, I look to you for help and hope.
