New sister in Christ requests prayers during painful growth process

Our sister in Christ, Karen D., has been a frequent reader and commenter here on TFR for many months. She mentioned to me that she wanted to make a comment asking for prayer, and I offered to post her request as a separate post. It is below. Let’s keep her in prayer as she works ever toward the truth.

I have started to think of TFR as part of my spiritual family, and I want to be honest with you. Don’t know if that’s right or not, but that’s where I am.

TFR has been a vital part of my Christian growth this past year. I have read almost every article, and applied many things to my spiritual life that you have written. But the truth is I really need your prayers right now. I need your wisdom, fellowship, and guidance to help me. I’m feeling insecure and not very spiritually strong. Continue reading

A perfect ministry of intercession

“From his exalted heavenly position, the Lord conducts a perfect ministry of intercession on behalf of those who approach God through him (Rom. 8:34; Heb. 7:25, 9:24; 1 Jn. 2:1).

Share your prayer requests or thanksgivings

Do you need prayers? Click on Reply (upper right of this post; in emails, hit the Comment button) and share your requests for prayer, your thanksgivings, or a prayer of yours addressed to the Father.

If you pray over one or more requests, please acknowledge with a quick reply of “Done” or “Prayed” or something similar, so the person who requested prayer will know.

If a prayer requester wants to get an email when someone has prayed and replied, click the option “Notify me of follow-up comments via email.”

This would be a very workable system, if we’ll use it. Perhaps a separate site might be best, however, so we’re studying that possibility.
