"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst" Matthew 18:20
For some time, through FReepmail, several FReepers have provided each other with a way to share prayer requests and praises.
Now that the Non-denominational category has been established, we are offering a weekly thread in which posts of your requests and praises are welcome.
Anyone, regardless of denomination, is welcome to bring their concerns here.
The one thing that we hope to establish here, is that at a set time on Sunday evening, 11:00 p.m. in the Eastern time zone, 10:00 p.m. Central time, 9:00 p.m. Mountain time, and 8:00 p.m. Pacific time, we will as a group, lift these concerns up in prayer. Individual prayer at any time is, of course, encouraged.
If anyone desires to post an "anonymous" request, just word it in a manner such as: " Please lift up my prayer (or praise) for a personal concern." Additional anonymity can be gained by sending a request or praise to svcw via FReepmail.
In the future, the weekly thread will be posted on Monday mornings in order for the concerns to be gathered through the week before they are compiled for the Sunday evening group prayer. This list will be available to all by late on Sunday.
As many of you know I have been frustrated by the turn FR has taken with defense (in my opinion) of some issues coming up that I firmly disagree with.
I do know that I have said I am done but that probably is not really the case. I am however going on vacation to Sedona, AZ for some R&R - no phones, internet and TV (or iffy at best).
But that is not my real point.
I have been watching and thinking of my grandchildren and what an inheritance they are. It is a joy and delight that I have grandchildren as part of me lives on - an inheritance.
But what is truly inheritance is it grandchildren? is it some "thing" we did with our name on it?
No. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength Eps 1:18-17
So friends on FR I bid farewell for a short vacation (starting 6/25) and I will be back (7/4) to the delight of some and the horror of others. May the Lord keep you safe and filled with His spirit and strength. Thanks for all the encouraging emails.
Have a great vacation..
Enjoy the greandchildren...
Be safe and happy..
In Jesus Name...
As to the ND title, as Christians, we are all "Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus."
Have a good vacation. When you return we will have approximately four months until election day. Perhaps we can start praying for a successful election. Can’t help but think - it’s going to get ugly.
Thank you for ‘gathering together two or more’.
God bless you, dear one. Please come back refreshed and raring to go. Love you, Maryxxx
May the Lord keep you safe also. Enjoy your vacation.
It will Be 0600 Monday Morning In Kuwait!
Whom has been assigned the posting for the thread in your absence? ... Did I read too fast and miss that? Have a safe and regenerative vacation. God be with you until we gather in his name together again. (You know where we’ll be Sunday evenings ...)
I think I asked greyfoxx39 to ping everyone just to remind them.
Would you like to keep track of the requests?
I will be with you in spirit on Sunday evening.
I am looking forward to the vacation and have already started loading the car.
I would be honored to try to handle it in your absence.
I am grateful she has good insurance.
Smokin'Joe has a prayer request:
"I am asking FReepers to join me in prayer for Emily, whose husband was killed in an accident on the oil rig on which he was working.
She is left with their two year old and is on her way to Wyoming to make arrangements.
Almighty Father, we join in prayer to ask that you help this young woman through this trial, comfort her, and grant all she and her toddler need. Grant her strength Oh Lord, as only You can, to Your greater Glory, as is Your will. I ask this in Jesus' Holy Name, Amen."
Please add this prayer to the list.

Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:18-20
I’ll be going with my grandchildren to our annual county wide concert and fireworks for Fourth of July later, but I will be back in time..
They always have it the Sunday night before..
God Bless America..
Thanks for the ping!
This gives me the opportunity to thank all who prayed on my son’s behalf. God hears and answers all prayers. And I know with the strength of a gathered body, lifting their hearts in prayer, my son has received blessings beyond count.
Thank you all again!
Prayers sought for freeper, LADYAK; her son was swept out to sea in Australia and is missing. I don’t have any further particulars, but we can petition the Lord to spread His Peace over this Lady in this crushiong time of worry and uncertainty. ‘See’ you all this evening.
Sunday Night "Conference Prayer" Ping
I’m asking for continued prayer for my twin brother, Ronnie. His rental house had burnt down, and a fire inspector had spent 5 minutes on the site and declared that the fire had been caused by some fireplace ashes discarded on the porch that had live embers.
Well, Ronnie knew that wasn’t the case. His neighbor, who first saw the fire, wrote a testimonial that the fire had eminanated from an outlet in a spare bedroom, that you could see from the pattern of the “blow torch” burning of the outlet from the inside to the outside porch — that this was the true cause.
So, the end result is that two more inspectors are coming out tomorrow morning to reevaluate the cause, after Ron’s campaign to get to the truth.
Please pray that the truth will be self-evident, and that the real cause will be shown.
That’s my prayer; God knows the truth, and that He will see that it it known.
Duly noted, m’Lady. Preparing to be in His Presence with petitions ...
I just barely got home from a long trip to take part in a beautiful, personal memorial for my Mother.
Please pray that all who attended have a safe journey home.
Marvin I just saw your FRMail...do you have the list of requests?
Pinging for prayer gathering. For where two or more are gathered in His name, there is He in the midst of them ...
Lord we have so much to be thankful for. We literally live and breath by your blessings. By the power of Your Spirit, gather us together with You as we seek to gather in spirit in Your name to petition Your Grace toward these with needs so great they require Your healing power. ...
Joining you in prayer and lifting all those who need the blessings of our Lord.
Thanks for the ping.
Our little Spencer is making a remarkable recovery. His wound is healing well, and the doctors said it would be about a year before that would happen (LOL). He is responding well to verbal and physical therapy and is more like his old self. This little guy has been through more in his short life than most of us could handle in 20. Mom is expecting soon, too. Prayers continue, please for all.
I had a heart exam Friday and nothing has changed in a year. I’m operating at about 40%, but for most things that’s good. I’m not running in any marathons but...
Such good news!
