Edit: Just posting to let you all know the test for whooping cough came back negative so normal life is resuming! WOO HOO! Thank you all for the prayers!
I'm already kind of bored so I figured I'd post another journal. I felt odd putting a prayer request journal up without including anyone else's prayers like I normally do so I'll put up the last one I got.
The doctors think the reason my nephew got severe Pneumonia is because he also has whooping cough and had it first. Which means until atleast 21.5 hours from the time of this journal our whole family is quarantined. If he has Whooping Cough our whole family will be Quarantined for atleast 2 weeks. That means no leaving our house under any non-lifethreatening circumstances. That means no going to work, which means no income and we're desperately strapped for income as it is. If you could say a prayer that none of us have whooping cough it would be greatly appreciated.
It's from anonymous
Please pray for me, my late dad and my mother for she's doing a horrible thing at bringing her on and off boyfriend into her room and doing intimate things as I assumed because I heard them talking, kissing, and other noises I don't feel comfortable saying. This man she's with right now is not who God sent. She doesn't go to church anymore, she has strict rules on me but goes behind my back and showing no good example for me when she's put with friends at parties and also when she talks to them on the phone woth such bad language towards them. I don't even go to her when I have personal problems with myself but I am blessed with many close friends on my side. I really am need of prayers that she may find a better man for him who will treat her like a queen and may bring her closer to the Lord as well. I need my mother spiritually and it really hurts me greatly that she isn't there for me in that way anymore. Please pray for us and I would deeply appreciate that. Thank you so much..
Also this is in bold for a reason. MAKING A PRAYER REQUEST TO ME OR ANY CHRISTIAN GROUP BOTHERING US! I get so many prayer requests where people say they hate having to ask for prayers. It's not a sign of weakness or something embarassing to ask for. In fact I feel like I'd hope all my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ that if you ask for prayer or help it's not a sign of weakness but a sign of how strong, humble, and courageous you are. I have had one prayer request in the past 11 days and I HATE THAT. Not because it means things are going good, but the fact that I know with the amount of watchers I have and the way the world is that it's impossible that every person who see's my prayer request journals is doing well. It actually is sad for me when I post a prayer request journal and get no new prayers. I mean if everything was going great for you then I am ECSTATIC! However I know that it's simply not true for all of you. It doesn't have to be life threatening. It doesn't have to impact your entire future. You could be looking to hear back from a job interview as a waitress to earn some money towards a bicycle. You could have just lost your favorite book and can't stop thinking about it. It doesn't have to be something huge for it to be prayed for.
If you feel like you can't pray without a name I've felt if you just pray with a pseudo name or say anonymous that since it's not our power that the prayers are heard but God's power and he will know who we mean even if we don't know who we are praying for. I've just seen a lot prayer requests delayed in being prayed for because they want to have a name to pray for.
