Each Monday I will be posting prayer requests so that we can hold one another up and pray for each other throughout the week.
You can e-mail your prayers requests to me at iamalongfortheride[@]gmail[.]com. Feel free to e-mail today and I can add them. If you e-mail me throughout the week, I will post them next Monday.
Kate: I would also like to request prayer for all of the affected areas of Alabama and the southeast. I lived in Tuscaloosa for 4 years, and it is my husband's hometown. While we are very blessed that our friends and family are accounted for and well, there are so many people who have lost everything. It will take months and probably years to repair the physical damage to the cities hit by the tornadoes. Please pray for healing for those who have lost so much!
Vivienne: My friend Erin (who is 41 with 2 young children) was just diagnosed with malignant melanoma. They are waiting for the results as to whether or not it has metastasized. Please pray for her complete healing and protection from the melanoma that can lie in wait and grab her 5 or 10 years from now.
My sister Monica is on a destructive path where her drinking has cost her her job and is about to cost her her marriage. She has turned her back on God and says "it doesn't work for her." I am praying that God softens her heart and that she will eventually find that He is all she needs.
