For You in Your 20’s and You Who Will Pray For Them

**UPDATE: We are just so happy to have all of you 20-somethings flock to requesting prayer! Our faithful God surely hears, and cares to His core! If you do not see a specific partner reply to your request, know that the LPM Staff have adopted you. We will pray for each of you, joyfully!

One of my favorite things about Twitter is that we can come to really love someone we wouldn’t have even known to like. Someone from an entirely different part of the country or the planet. Someone from a totally different tradition of our faith. Someone in another generation who serves God in a way that is fresh and exhilarating to us. I have a whole mental list of those and just this morning prayed for a number of young women that I’ve gotten to “know” there on that ridiculous stream of social media that I love. It is a young man that I’ve come to appreciate so much, however, that prompted this post. His name is Jefferson Bethke. I didn’t know anything about him until 6 months ago when Melissa, my youngest daughter, told me she enjoyed following him on Twitter. He is a great communicator God clearly has His hand upon and a poet who creates fantastic thought-provoking videos. I’m glad to have the privilege to tell you about him but that’s not why I’m bringing him up today. A week or so ago on Twitter he mentioned sitting on the airplane, moved with emotion over various testimonies he’d been reading of lives dramatically changed by Jesus Christ. It hit me right then that one of the things I loved best about him is that the young man simply has a pure heart. He just flat-out loves Jesus and loves people. It’s consistent in everything he says and writes. I felt an urgency right that moment to ask God to protect that holy passion and sustain it the length of his days.

And that’s when I thought of all of you in his same generation who really do want to honor God and fulfill the purpose for which He planted your feet on this earth.

Here’s what I want to say to you: you really can maintain a pure and fiery heart toward Christ and His mission on earth but make no mistake: you will not do it by accident.

If you want a pure heart, you better be willing to fight for it. You will not keep it any other way.

The first big relief is that we can’t conjure one up on our own. God alone can create in us a pure heart and renew a right spirit within us. (Psalm 51:10) He alone can set it ablaze with holy passion. But out of God’s sovereign wisdom, He determined that guarding the heart He formed and lit within us would, in many ways, fall to us. We’re to own part of that job.

Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

Our second huge relief is that we can have a pure heart whether or not we have a pure past. Thank You, Jesus. If not, I and many others would be stuck for a lifetime with dark distorted hearts and deformed desires.

There are many other things more effective voices could tell you about guarding your heart toward Christ, toward people He’s sent you to serve and toward His mission on this planet. Ask them and learn from them. My purpose today is to pitch into the mix a couple of things that I’ve learned – and keep learning – in case any of it resonates with you. I also want to pray for you and call others to do the same. Here goes:

*Your heart will cool off if you do nothing to guard it. Jesus warned us in the 24th chapter of Matthew that “because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” (V.12) We’re exposed to so much suffering and violence, pain, pretense, and wrongdoing in the world that, even as a defense against feeling so much, we’ll naturally thicken up. I’m certainly not suggesting we be less informed. Uninformed Christians can be a waste of light in the darkness. What I’m suggesting is that, if you want to keep a warm, feeling heart, you better be prepared to fight like mad for it.

*Over time, you can get really cynical. For one thing, cynicism can be really funny so we get drawn to it. It also tends to be cooler. You have to be willing to be one of those that the cynics could make fun of.

*You have to realize that guarding your heart means guarding its willingness to love and be exposed out there where it can get wronged or wounded. A couple of years ago I was researching God’s self-disclosure in Exodus 34:5-7 and stumbled onto something that totally changed the way I looked at guarding my heart. Here’s the segment so you can see it for yourself:

5 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD. 6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, 7 maintaining love…

See that word “maintaining”? It is a form of the same Hebrew term used in Proverbs 4:23  for “guarding” our hearts. In other words, a huge part of guarding my heart is maintaining love. It was a total game changer for me because somehow I had associated guarding my heart with keeping it sheltered. Try to fathom that God actively maintains His love toward us. He guards it. Using that same concept, He calls us to maintain our love toward other people. If I want to stay in love with my husband, for instance, I better actively practice maintaining it because, left to its nature, it will grow cold.

One of the things that God keeps teaching me to do is pray with everything in me and on an ongoing basis to love Jesus more than anything I can see or touch in this human realm. He promises in Scripture to grant us everything we pray in His will and in His name. (1 John 5:14-15)  Since His greatest command was that we love (Mark 12:30-31), you can pray for it with absolute confidence that He’s going to do it. In fact, every time you ask God for it, go ahead and thank Him in advance that He’s going to accomplish it. He will. Then when He starts doing it, you start guarding it with all your might.

Ask Him continually to stir fire in your bones for His Word and for His mission. Ask Him to sustain it in you and teach you how to guard it through every inch of your lifespan. Only put up with a sense of spiritual flatness for a matter of days. That’s completely normal. But when it begins to turn into weeks, go face-down on that floor and ask God to give you insight into what seems off and to revive your heart. Don’t just accept coldness. Fight for love.

What is it you want from God? Pray for it feverishly! “Pursue love and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts.” That’s what 1 Corinthians 14:1 says.

Also ask others to pray these things over you. That’s what I am hoping this blog post will be about today.

Here’s what I’m asking all of you to do if you’re willing:

*Those of you in your 20’s, tell us at least your first name, where you’re from, and a little bit about you in a comment so that we can personalize our intercessions for you.

*The rest of you choose one of them to pray for (or two, if you have the time), let them know in a reply under their comment that you are adopting them for intercession for the next 14 days. Tell them where you’re from as well. I think they’ll like knowing that, too. As long as every 20-something gets signed-up for, it doesn’t matter if a number of you are praying for the same individual. If they’re like us, they’d be ecstatic to have the extra prayer covering. Pray as you feel led by God but, within that intercession, pray particularly for God to stir up and sustain a holy passion in them for Himself, His mission, and for people on this planet, and that they will be alert and proactive in guarding their hearts to last a lifetime. Ask God forthrightly to deliver them from any area of bondage, strengthen them in temptation, and deliver them from evil. Love them with all your might through prayer.

Let’s partner with this generation and intercede powerfully for them. They are the rising future of the church of Jesus Christ at this tumultuous time on the Kingdom calendar. Let’s pray them out there.


Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you, and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.  1 Thessalonians 3:11-13 ESV




PS. To our regular blog community: I put this in a comment but I’m afraid many of you may not see it.

I am grateful beyond expression for your participation on this post. Please move at the same pace that you see our 20-somethings sign up. In other words, if at our first moderation there are 15 of them, see that all 15 are spoken for then, instead of doubling and tripling up on the same small group, watch for others to be posted and claim those. Assume in about 48 hours that we’ll probably have around 80% of the 20-somethings that will end up participating. Still, check every couple of days for about a week to make sure everybody gets covered if you don’t mind. Sisters, this woman right here KNOWS how powerfully you pray. I’ve seen it. I’ve felt it. You are solid gold in the Kingdom of God! Pray for these young people like you’d want somebody to pray for your own children, whether or not you have any. Take them on as blood. Pray with faith and holy fire. Pray like the near future of the church depends on Jesus revealing Himself through them. They are so worth it. JESUS is so worth it.

I love you guys madly.

    Elisabeth says:

    Modesto, CA

    Late 20s. Was royally messed-up. Jesus dramatically transformed me from the inside out & created a healthy, redeemed, and restored woman on fire. I am wired & meant for full-time ministry/missions. Absolutely NO doubts about it. Been speaking in high schools and high school/college youth groups. Spent time doing missions in Africa. Want to live there. Seeking His will & face. Seeking out ministries to work with & be trained by. Don’t want to conform to the idea of American Christianity I see all around me. Passionate about being deep, different, audacious. Passionate to see other believers get it & dive in deep. Want to be a world-changer.

    Lauren says:

    Hi my name is Lauren, and I am 20 years old. I feel so called to this message!

    Somehow in mid prayer I stumbled upon this blog. (of course on pinterest, not giving the lord my full attention he brings me to this blog through a pin! I think the Lord has a sense of humor, don’t you?) My mind always in a state of restlessness and is so clear that I’m in serious need of the Lord’s peace. The main thing I would love prayers for would be that I reconnect with the Lord with a fiery passion and then have the wisdom and courage to guard my heart for all my days.

    I want to live for God, and for his mission but it isn’t clear to me what it is yet, I ask for prayers he will reveal it to me. And that he will show me his true love so that I can know when the time comes how to love as a wife, and a mother and live life through my faith when I am older.

    Thank you for any prayers and know I will be praying for you as well!

      Hi Lauren!
      I loved your post! First it was funny about being in mid prayer and stumbling on this thru Pinterest…sounds like something I would do and YES I do believe God has a sense of humor!!! Second, I have a 20 year old that I pray all the same requests you mentioned…for peace, for passion for God, for wisdom, for courage to stand strong in Him, for a heart fully entrusted and devoted to Him, and for clear direction and guidance by the Holy Spirit…so consider yourself covered in prayer along with my Jenna!!
      May God bless you mightily and richly….xo 🙂

      I’m very excited about this chance to pray for you! I’m 50 and I often wish I could go back and do things differently. I’m praying for you, that when you’re my age, you will not say that. I pray that you will allow God to work in your life. I pray that you will turn to Him for all the answers. The truth is He does know Best! If you can learn from an early age to turn to Him for all your answers…I know your relationship with Him will grow by leaps and bounds!!!

      Heavenly Father…lead Lauren to You. I pray that she seeks your guidance in every area of her life. I pray that you will bless this beautiful young woman with all her hearts desires. In your precious name. Amen

      Have a great day Lauren!

      Hi Lauren! Just as you felt drawn to this blog, so was I drawn to your post. I’m not sure why but I felt led to pray for you. My name is Jamie, I’m from Northern Maine and have two small children of my own. It is difficult as a christian Mom to balance your time between God, your children, your husband, your job (if you work), and find a little for yourself. Just know that I am praying for the things you asked and I believe that God will reveal to you exactly what you are asking of Him!

      Hi Lauren,

      I will be lifting you up in prayer. I understand the place you are in because I am in that same place. God has a purpose for you and in His time, He will reveal it to you.

      Be confident in who He is and know that He has a mighty plan for you. We all have a calling upon our lives that is unique to anyone else’s. Remember that.

      Much love,

    Renee says:

    Hello! My name is Renee. I’m 21 and stumbled across this website quite by accident! I am currently attending university although I will be finished within the year. I would really appreciate prayer with what to do with my life after I graduate. I want to do amazing things for God, but I struggle with being strong and courageous. I often find myself wishing I would speak up- longing to speak up- but saying nothing and regretting my lack of trust and faith. All of my dreams involve me being bold and fearless… and I’m not nearly as bold and fearless as I’d like to be.
    I know God has great plans for me, and I don’t want to miss out on anything He wants me to do. I want to use my gifts to glorify Him. So I would love prayer for boldness, wisdom, and clarity as I move forward into unknown territory.
    Also, I’d appreciate prayers for peace, contentment, joy and perseverance as I find myself in the midst of a season in life that seems to never end.
    Thank you for praying!

      Dawn says:

      Hi Renee
      My name is Dawn and it will be a honor and a blessing to pray for you. It has been my plea with God for the past 4 years to give me a boldness also and a fire for Him and you know what He has! I am going to be praying these verses for you and others as the days roll out

      Philippians 1:4-6
      4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

      God loves you Renee and wants so much for you to have His boldness and to use you for His Kingdom purpose! I believe that you did not “stumble” across this web site, it was God appointed for the both of us. Live your life in His reckless love for you and you will be amazed at what follows.What ever season you are in God is commanding it and will be there to get you to the other side for His glory and purpose. He loves you and has so many things ahead for you in your life that will just rock your world! Enjoy and be blessed by getting to know Him take the time to be in His word. It is worth every eternal second!

      Have a blessed day

I’ll be praying that God gives you strength and courage to stand up for what He puts in your path! I come from a long line of very strong women, so I think we will be a good match 🙂 My email is [email protected] if you want to email me.

      Brandi says:


      I was drawn to your post because I could have written it about 10 years ago. I wanted to share with you what I wished someone would have shared with me oh so long ago…It’s not about what you do for God…It’s about who you are in God. I find it interesting that the last thing Jesus said before He ascended was “You WILL BE my witnesses in…” He did not say “you will work to become” or “you will create the program that will be my witness.” I have learned that I often focus on what I can do FOR God and not WITH Him. Your first priority is to “love the Lord with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul.” Don’t be surprised if He asks you to take a step away from ministry…it just means He wants you to Himself for a while. Through this relationship, your heart, your soul, your life will be transformed to be more like Christ and then and only then “you WILL BE (His) witness.

    Heather says:

    Howdy! My name is Heather Flores, I am 23 years old, and I am currently preparing to graduate from nursing school! As graduation approaches and I prepare for my upcoming career as a cardiac nurse, I have found myself burdened with a heavy heart. This semester has certainly been a season of finality (broke up with my boyfriend, finishing my 5-year stretch at A&M, etc), however, I feel like closure has yet to come. I read this blogpost and realized that my view of “guarding my heart” was rather conservative and not exactly biblical- the issue is that I’ve done too much guarding and not enough maintaining. So, all that to say, I’m asking for prayer that I may have an open heart; one that is willing to accept the Lord’s will, a heart that remains faithful to His calling and attentive to His whispers. Thank you, prayer warriors. Thank you thank you.

      Hi Heather,
      I am praying for you in this 14 day challenge! My name is Beth and I am also a nurse. I love your statement about too much guarding and not enough maintaining, haven’t we all??? I learn so much on this blog. There is song that I love, actually the lyrics have been my prayer at times. It is called One Pure and Holy Passion (by Passion) “Give me one pure and holy passion
      Give me one magnificent obsession
      Give me one glorious ambition for my life
      To know and follow hard after you

      To know and follow hard after you
      To grow as your disciple in the truth
      This world is empty, pale, and poor
      Compared to knowing you my Lord
      Lead me on and I will run after you”

      It is an honor or privilege to prayer for you!

As I am praying for God to guard your heart and make it open and willing to accept His will, you will be guarding your patients hearts in a few short weeks as a cardiac nurse. Never under estimate what God can do through you for Him.

      Praying fervently, Mary Jane

    Dorian says:

    My name is Dorian. I am 24. I live in Atlanta. I graduated from nursing school May 2012 and have been working as a Labor and Delivery nurse since last August. I love my job and am certain beyond a shadow of a doubt it’s God’s calling on my life. However, it has exposed me to the depravity of this world far more than I have ever been in my life. I am already discovering growing cynicism towards those who don’t know Christ, whether they be coworkers or patients. Sometimes my heart is so overwrought that I can’t handle it. I want to love as I am commanded to. Without cynicism or judgement. I don’t want to get caught up in the details of my job and forget that God put me there for His Kingdom. My heart is so sensitive and I am overwhelmed easily. Please pray that I have strength and boldness. And that I can love well. I am also very single and feel that nobody will ever notice me, much less love me as I long to be loved. I want to be wholly satisfied in my Creator and to trust Him with ALL parts of my life. Thank you for this amazing prayer chain, Beth. I have been especially worn down this week and God had my mom forward this email to me in all too perfect timing!

      HI, Dorian, my name is Shanalea and I live on the complete opposite coast as you in Riverside, CA. Working in a place where you see so many crazy things can be draining. I am an elementary school teacher and can feel you pain.
      Lord, would you grant Dorian with an extra amount of grace and empathy for her patients.Give her wisdom in knowing how to care for each of them as if she was caring for you. I pray that you would fill her with your spirit to handle the craziness of a hospital with strength. I pray that she would be a light to those she interacts with and they will know without a shadow of doubt she is different in a good way. Give her freedom to be loved by you in ways she never thought possible. In Jesus’ name, Amen

When you feel like no one is noticing you, you remember that The King of Kings SEES YOU and finds you stunning! May He lift you up and through Him may you find the strength you need!

      I am in the middle of one of the most difficult tests that God has ever given me. Here are some verses that have been helping me.

      Dear Dorian,

      It sounds like God has given you a tender heart. I have several spiritual daughters who are nurses so, I know how hard it is for them in the midst. I will be praying for your heart for others and your full satisfaction in He who is worthy! See the AWE of God around you today.

    Sammie Knight says:

    Sammie Knight, Flagstaff AZ. I am twenty years old and a junior at Northern Arizona University with a major in Religious Studies. I was diagnosed Bipolar about 2 years ago and my spiritual life has never been the same. It has been such a struggle for me to stay in His word and hold to His gospel, and even to keep in conversation with Him. I will go weeks and even months without once spending time in study with Him, one on one. My spiritual gift is knowledge and I love His word more than anything and so I am torn apart by my inability to be consistent. Please pray that I can reconnect with Him on the deepest level and be on fire for Him, amid the rampant instability of my life.

      Dear Sammie,

      It sounds like you have a good perspective and know cognitively what to do. Keep drawing near to Him even when (maybe especially when) you don’t ‘feel’ like it. I’m praying for you, He is faithful!

      Linda says:

      Hi Sammie, I’m Linda from Ft. Collins, Colorado. Oh yes, I will definitely be praying for you. May I suggest you start out with something “do-able” each day. Start small so you are not overwhelmed. The evil one wants you to condemn yourself, but remember Romans 8:1. Look at verses that strengthen your faith and meditate on them. Be sure and pour out your heart to God each day! I will be praying victory for you!

    Lola says:

    Howdy from Lewisville, TX! My (nick)name is Lola. I will exit my 20’s a little later this year, but I figured I’d jump into this 20 something post while I still can. 🙂 I am wife to an entrepreneur husband, work-at-home-mom of two little ones (2yr & 9mo) who owns a small handcraft business and does contract work on the side where I can. I tend to struggle with the gospel going further than my head to my heart in the daily grind.

    As we are continuing to endure a challenging 2yr+ season of start-up business life (long hours put in by my husband and minimal funds) with two young children, I get to feeling weary, selfish, and grouchy far more often than I’d like to be. I would love prayers for a passionate and unquenchable desire to commune with God, eyes to see and love those around me as He does, graciousness and gospel love for my hard-working hubby, and courage and obedience to share the good news of Christ in my suburban mission field. I would also love for others to join me in praise to our God for my two beautiful girls, the opportunity to teach them about the gospel, and the opportunity to learn more about the gospel myself from being a parent.

    Thank you for the prayers!

      Hi Lola! My name is Vicki and I am from Lubbock, TX. I would love to pray for you! I am 60 years (young– ha!)and I have two grown children and 4 grandchildren (and two recently acquired step-grandchildren)! My husband is self-employed in a family business, and though I have dabbled in a couple of things, I mostly have been a stay at home mom and grammy all these years. I understand the “daily grind” of this calling, but let me encourage you! What if God would audibly speak to you right now and tell you that you are doing exactly what He has called you to– the BEST thing– HIS thing! In recent years, I have been able to look back and accept/understand/SEE how perfectly God has woven my story into HIS plan for my life–one of my prayers for you is that it won’t take you as long to know in your heart you are doing what pleases HIM. Two precious girls– so cool! I could say so much, but the most important things are these: First, read Deut.6:6-7 and put that Scripture into practice! Even if just one verse in the morning and evening– it is life and health to your girls! Secondly, I pray that you will be able to join a good Bible Study group (Beth Moore’s video/workbook studies are gifts from the Lord!)where you can fall in love with God and Scripture in a way you never thought possible and also enjoy sweet fellowship with like-minded sisters. OK– that’s it– What a blessing and privilege to be able to pray for you, Lola!

    Malorie says:

    Hi there, my name is Malorie and my Mum forwarded me this post, encouraging me to sign up. I am a 22 year old from New Zealand, and a recent Theology graduate. In my first year out of University, I am at a major crossroads in my life. Trying to decide where to live, if I should study more, or if I should continue to pursue a call into ministry. The university I recently graduated from was extremely secular, and studying theology there was interesting to say the least. Cynicism and sarcasm was a noticeable trend of my classmates, and I would really appreciate prayer to guard my heart and keep it soft towards the things of God. Thanks everyone!

      My name is Tammie. I’m a 49 y/o wife and mother of 2 adult children and it would be my honor and pleasure to pray for you! I live in the US in the state of Ohio.

      I will be praying that God would guard and protect your heart from things that are not of Him. That He would direct your paths and speak to you about what the path is that He would have for you.

      Be blessed and know that He loves you and knows you!He has made you unique and placed you in this time and place for a reason.

      It is an honor for me to pray for you the next 14 days. I am from Fairhope, Alabama which is on Mobile Bay eastern shore. I am a retired school counselor. My husband and I have a wholesale produce business. We have two sons ages 31 and 26. The oldest is married with a son (10). The youngest is getting married in June. They both live here in Fairhope. I will be praying about God’s will for your life and that He will surround you with His loving arms as you ponder your next phase of life. Most of my devotion time is early in the morning but whenever I think of you during the day I will offer up a prayer for God’s guidance in your life. Be Blessed!

    Christie says:

    I’m so grateful to Beth for suggesting this, especially since right now I’m really in need of much prayer! What a tremendous blessing it is to have sisters in Christ who have paved the way before us praying for us! My name is Christie and I turn 24 tomorrow (April 26). I live in Colorado Springs, CO. My life is very different from many others my age. For the past 12 years, I have lived with chronic physical pain. I’m currently unable to go to college, Bible school or work or be involved in ministry, or missions. I’m mostly homebound and am dependent on others for some of my most basic needs. Right now my life feels like it has been put on hold and often seems purposeless. The physical pain affects pretty much every area of my life and because of this, I struggle significantly emotionally and spiritually too. Additionally, I’ve encountered a lot of losses, disappointments, and shattered dreams. If I were well, some of my desires would be either to get a degree in Psychology or Social Work and I would like to either go into Christian Counseling or work for an organization that combats human trafficking. I truly want to trust God, love Him intimately, and have a holy passion for Him and His Word, but in all honesty I’m finding it difficult to pray or even be in His Word right now. I know God has a plan and a purpose for the pain and the suffering and that He can redeem it all, but it’s hard because I’ve never experienced the closeness in my relationship with The Lord or the significant spiritual growth that so many other Christians describe about their own suffering and trials. There have been times in the past though where I have been more keenly aware of His love and faithfulness. It is comforting to know that Jesus Himself suffered in every way and He knows what I’m going through and will bring good out of it. It seems like every birthday, I tell God that I want to experience amazing, sweet fellowship with Him and great spiritual growth, yet I’m realizing more and more that I can’t do this in my own strength, I have to rely on His strength.

    Please pray that as I begin this next year of my life, God would do a tremendous strengthening of my faith and that He would enable me to persevere each day when in so many ways I just feel like giving up. I also need God to deliver me from my fears. I would appreciate it if in addition to what Beth mentioned about guarding my heart, you would pray for “God’s power to be perfected in my weakness,” that The Lord would refine me and use these circumstances and pain to make me more Christ-like, and that God would be glorified in all this. Also, pray that God would grant me a deep and unshakeable trust, love, and passion for Him and His Word and that He would bring me to the point of being willing to completely surrender my will and my life to Him. Pray that The Lord would reveal His purposes for my life and that He would show me how to serve Him and others in the midst of my circumstances. Ask that He would encourage and strengthen me and restore hope, peace and joy in my life. Ask that if it is His will, that He would completely heal and restore me physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Thank you, thank you, thank you for lifting me up in prayer dear sisters! I can’t even begin to express how much this means to me!

I pray that he will enlighten the eyes of your heart that you will know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. (Eph 1) Know that His desire is for you to draw closer to him. Stand in faith that he will do just that!

    Hello! My name is Charlotte and I am 27 (argh!) years old. I would really appreciate prayers for guidance and open doors at the moment as well as peace in this transitional season of my life, as my mind is always on overdrive. I am an avid overthinker and am trying to keep focussed and not get carried away planning things that make sense to me and so that I’m then capable of hearing accurately from the Lord.

    Deeply passionate about being light in the darkness and the fact that the moment you step out of your door step you are on your mission field! And so desperately want to be so in tune with God that I finish my race well having been able to tell as many people as possible about Him and His goodness and faithfullness and vast love for us!! Thank you!!!

    Shea Koone says:

    My name is Shea Koone 27. I’m from southern IL. I am just praying for God’s will to be clearly shown to me and for my purpose to be revealed. I work full time for the USDA and had a woman transfer to our county to become my boss we are two totally different types of people. I found that God was using her to open my heart to be excepting to people that weren’t really my type to hang out with. Boy have I been blessed… this woman has a driven passion for God and it has in turn brought me closer to God to the point of before work every morning we have practically a bible study and not only that these unexplainable God things always happen go us several times a week. I always tell her maybe God is preparing to send up to minister somewhere or somehow together. We are very grateful to have gotten to be great buddies and siesta sisters as well. We often wonder what our purpose is praying that it comes to light.
    Thanks love y’all!

    Hi! My name is Rachel Nichols and I’m 29 years old. As a younger girl, I was a spitfire for God, so pure and so in love with Jesus. As I aged so did that passion and I’m sitting here at 29 looking at my past ten years with disgust. I have gotten so far away from that girl that I find myself doubting that God’s love and forgiveness could possibly cover me. I have made so many mistakes KNOWINGLY, I am so undeserving. I’m asking you to pray that God’s peace and love will extend to me and that I will move in the direction God has called me. Thank you so much!

      Lucy says:

      Please know that there is nothing you have done that God can’t forgive. He is BIGGER than all the things that disgust you about your life! When Satan brings those things to mind, just tell yourself that God has thrown them as far as the East is from the West. Believe Him. Claim His promises because He always keeps them. Remind your self that He did it all. You don’t have to do anything, but believe. I always ask Him to show me immediately when I sin so I can confess it to Him. I hate it when I fail God. When you have failed Him and have accepted His forgiveness, His MERCY is so real! That is where your peace will come from. Don’t let Satan defeat you. You are a child of the KING!!! Blessings to you, sweet girl!

    Amy says:

    So happy I read this today! I feel I have allowed myself to become spiritually complacent in the last several months and desperately need a revival in my heart! My name is Amy and I’m 27. I’m a new mom to a precious, wonderful daughter, Abigail who is 9 months. Staying at home with her has been such an amazing blessing and I am so thankful. It is such a HUGE change from life before her, and it took me a while to adjust. I feel that being home with her day in and day out has gotten mundane at times (although I wouldn’t trade it for anything) but has made it even easier for me to become complacent. Please pray that my heart for Christ would be revived and that my love for Him and others would grow. That I would stop making excuses for myself and fight for love, as Beth said. Thank you so much in advance!

      Linda says:

      Hi Amy, My name is Linda and I’m 52 with two grown daughters of my own. I am sooo thankful to the Lord that you get to stay home with that precious little Abigail! when things get mundane as they sometimes do, tell God out loud how thankful you are to Him that you get to change her little diapers, or sweep a nice floor or whatever you are doing. It helps me often to remember how much God has given me and tell Him thank you out loud. Your daughter will pick up that attitude of gratitude from you. We all have spiritually complacent times, but I was glad Beth said to not let that go on for a long time. Take time with Him every day, even if Abigail joins you in those times, to pray and read His word out loud. Find verses that resonate with you and memorize them. (She’ll memorize with you when she can talk!)What a legacy you’ll be sharing with her. She is your mission field right now. I will pray for that revived heart and that your love for Him and others grows. Pour out your heart to Him every day and ask Him for whatever you need. He is faithful and He will accomplish it in you! Give that precious one a hug! Like everyone tells you, the time will fly by!

    Lane says:

    Hi! My sister showed me this blog just last night ( I watch Wesnesdays with Beth on Life Today) and what a blessing it was to see this post! I am in my late 20’s and have been struggling with Gods plan for me, what my purpose is? I ask you to pray that i have peace in knowing that God does have a plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11). I also appreciated Beth’s comment about being “cynical” I have found that instead of guarding my heart as Beth describes, I have “shielded” my heart from others because I doubt their sincerity or their intentions. I ask that you pray that I would open my heart so that the love God pours out on me could be poured out on others.

      Linda says:

      Hi Lane,
      I am back on here today to make sure everyone is covered in prayer on page 22! You are so right that God has a plan for you and He is not a God of confusion! Beth has encouraged us to look at our history because it may give us a clue as to how God will use us in the future. He uses our story to reach out to others. Perhaps that might help you pray. I will pray alongside you, trusting Him to lead you. Yes, I have been cynical before, too, and have shielded my heart from others. I am learning that God just asks us to love others..period! Let’s you and me leave the sincerity and intentions of others to Him. :)Keep your eyes and heart on Jesus. He loves you so! I’ll be praying for you.

    Jyothi says:

    Hi my name is Jyothi and I am currently living in Houston Texas! I am a 20 something going through some might changes. My husband is a pastor and has been feeling to call to plant a church- in another city-~~!!! Absolutely everything in me screams no. We are just finally getting comfortable in this city, loving our current church that we serve, and really understanding what it means to lead by example and love on the people. I personally feel that ministry can be at times lonely, hard, and puts EXTRA expectations on me and my husband more than any other “occupation” would. I absolutely need prayer because I need guidance, I need the Lord to speak to me, and I want to honor God and honor my husband. I just don’t want to go forward dragging my feet, and I don’t ever want to regret making that move with my husband.

    I truly long to have faith strong enough that would not waiver, boldness, courage to speak and proclaim His name anywhere, and a love so passionate for Him that would outweigh EVERY SINGLE discomfort this short life would bring, and a thirst that drives so deep that I wake up longing to spend time with our Maker and long for others to know Him and feel that too.
    Thank you for reading and praying for me

      Mary says:

      Oh my goodness, Jyothi, I’ve been there, done that, got the tee shirt! My name is Mary. I’m an old pastors wife. I remember the days of fear and loneliness. Especially when I was mad at my husband. Who was I suppose to confide in ?- a church member! Ugg- NO! I think that’s the hardest part. The loneliness. Fear is second. I have found over the years that when my husband got a “wild hair” it was probably God. I know. I always felt like he and God were crazy. But then I told God that if that’s what he was telling my strange husband that it would be your fault if it turned out bad. And you know what! In every place, and every change, (and some where harder that others) our blessed Savior always always always used us to touch someone that was waiting just for us at the new place. We were in 6 churches in 40 years. And in each one there are “new babies ” that God gave us. If I could tell you anything it is don’t worry and don’t be afraid. Our God is amazing!!!! Watching HIM work and using us to do HIS work was a true blessing. I can go home when God is done with me and truly say it has been worth it all. P.S. try if you can to find a friend. I really never did but instead I found my Jesus and now studying and teaching is the most exciting thing because He was all I had. I will truly pray for you. And your crazy preacher husband. Lol 😉

    I’m a couple days late, but would love so much the covering of prayers!!

    I’m Jennifer Stoltzfus from West Palm Beach, FL. I graduated from college one year ago and have been restless in my full time job ever since. I know I’m called to vocational ministry and need wisdom to walk forward in that! I’m preparing for a missions internship overseas this summer.. June-August! I’m desperate for wisdom/direction for after the trip (grad school? something else?)… provision/fund raising for the trip… and confidence to walk in the calling Yahweh has spoken over my life (ministering to women). I am starting a Bible study for women in my church – pray that the Lord would teach me so that I can teach them. That He would annoint our time and lead us in godliness. Please pray that I would walk wisely and be sensitive to the Spirit in every possible ways – leading up to my trip, while I’m overseas, when I return..

    So much love for you all! Thank you!

    Howdy! My name is Maureen and I’m 23. I am originally from Colorado but I graduated from Texas A&M almost a year ago now (where does time go???) and then got married to a wonderful Texan who was willing to move to Utah with me so I could attend graduate school! Life in Utah as a Christian has been rough – for those of you who have never experienced it, the counterculture is actually the worst part. I am so thankful that God blessed me with a husband who is my best friend, but it is very lonely to not have many (any) girlfriends my age. Even though I am enjoying living in the mountains again, I am homesick for Aggieland! I miss Texas like crazy, especially all my friends.
    I really like the idea of “maintaining” love, I could definitely use some prayers to persevere through all the assaults on my faith that occur here. And to remember to love everyone, no matter what, to just let God’s love shine through me and to let all the trials here bring me closer to Him.
    To all of you praying: I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you! (Romans 1:8)

      I felt like I was in my own “desert” experience when my husband and I moved here to Iowa from Ohio 11 years ago. God drew me to Him in big, big ways as I didn’t have friends or family here. I’m praying God blesses your life there in Utah with a wonderful sister-friend who loves Jesus. One you can share life with. Laugh & cry with. Until then…lean in to Jesus and hear Him whisper of His presence and love to you daily!

      Praying too for your marriage through the transition, change, and culture differences you’re encountering.
      Our God loves you so sister and He hears and sees your heart’s cries.

    My name is Ali Roeschley and I live in Chandler, Arizona. I am 29 years old and a mother of a 2 year old boy, a 1 year old girl and I teach 7 other little ones in my home two days a week. I feel head over heels in love with Jesus and His church about 6 years ago as I began waiting on the LORD to bless us with a baby. Through that time and several of Beth’s Bible Studies, I developed a thirst for Him, His Word and a relationship that would define my whole life! I found Beth’s love for Jesus contagious and I longed to have the same passion she did for Him. Everyday I seek the same, although time and life sometimes steal that from me. I am ready to reclaim what is mine! Joy, passion and a fiery heart for the One who is so worthy. Thank you for your prayers and for this ministry. It’s changed my life!

    I’m 23 years old in Manhattan, KS and married to Allison.

    I’m a pastor and my wife teaches 2nd grade. (I’m unsure if asking for both of us is overreaching…but I’m going for it.) We’re happy and healthy and just about 2 years into marriage. We’re both finishing up the 1st year of our jobs. We are blessed to have jobs, but the emotional and psychological toll overwhelms some days. Pray for us to have soft, tender hearts for God and each other as we go through our days. The busier we get, the harder it is at times to hear God’s voice. Pray that in the midst of it all we can hear his voice well and restoration would come even when getting away or taking a day off isn’t always available. Thank you.

      Mary says:

      Dear Ben and Allison, I remember the days in my early 20’s just getting started on our life in the ministry. I am at the end of full time service. I was crazy enough to marry a preacher and spend my life in ministry along side him. After 40 years I can tell you it was the hardest and most blessed life. I would be honored to pray for you both. If I could tell you both one thing it would be to cherish each other while you pray together. ( well maybe that’s 2 things) Make your marriage the most important thing on earth. Satan ALWAYS attacks marriage first. Make time. Keep close to our Savior together and well as seperately. I pray that Jesus will keep you both wrapped in His arms. Safe and warm and protected from all the attacks. I am so proud of you both. You just hang on to Jesus and remember you work for the Master and no one else!!!!! He will be your Everything!

    I’m in the midst of a difficult season of loss. In the last 8 months I’ve miscarried twice, lost both of my Grandma’s and a dear sweet friend and mentor. God has been so good to me but this road is a difficult one. Please pray that I will love Him more and not grow bitter. Thank-you dear one(s) who do.

    My name is Katie, I’m from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I’m 29 and divorced…and God has instructed me to go back to my husband…but he isn’t willing right now. I have run from God, ignored him, done things I shouldn’t…and I can’t do that anymore, I am so much more happy since I have started following Him again, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I need to return to my hubby. Prayer would be amazing! Thank you for this post Beth, it hit a cord! Love it!

      Hi Katie,

      I will be praying for you… I can relate to you. I’m 43 yrs old and I also live in Calgary. Your post stuck out to me because I came back to The Lord when I was 29 yrs old and I had also run far from God. I am currently separated from my husband. We are working on reconciliation and it is not easy but I truly believe that I am being obedient to God. Even though it seems impossible in the humanly realm nothing is impossible with God!

    Hello there!

    My name is Jasmine, I am 21 and from Minneapolis. Currently, I am a full-time nanny and full-time student for Elementary Education.
    As I read this today, I was brought to tears. Over and over again, I am reminded that I can only find my identity and worth in Christ. I struggle so much with guarding my heart because of the scars from my past when men have hurt me- it has made me feel unworthy of someone who can truly love me. Although this is something I feel I have learned to take to the Lord and lay at His feet, it is still a daily decision I must make. Overall, I would love prayer for strength to continue pursuing my great Redeemer; to trust and abide in Him. I dream of finding the man that He has for me someday (what girl doesn’t! :]), yet I know that I need to work on myself NOW to be the best woman I can be for my future husband… including guarding my heart.

    I want to thank those of you in advance who are interceding on my behalf. I cannot express what a blessing these words have been to me and am so blessed to have found this group of women who are lifting each other up.

    God Bless,
    Jasmine Mederich

      Hi Jasmine, my name is Angie and I’m from Conover NC. I am 43 yrs old, married 16 yrs w/one 12 yr old daughter. I can relate to what you have written about the scars from your past, being hurt by men and feeling of someone who could truly love you. I have been on a long journey w/God over the past 9 years of Him pursuing me, healing my past and showing me how much He loves me. He wants you to be healed and whole. He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are worthy of His love. He wants you to rest in His love, to trust in His love. He is the real deal. I will pray for you over these things. I also want to recommend a book- Get Lost, by Dannah Gresh. I got this book for my daughter, but I read it first and it about how much God loves us and that whether God brings you a spouse or not, the love you need to most be rooted in and trust in is God’s love for you. Keep seeking hard after God.

    Hey, my name is Hannah West and I’m from Fayetteville, Arkansas. I’m a full-time student with many other activities and responsibilities..pretty much like everyone else haha. This semester is coming to an end and this blog post couldn’t have spoken to my core any deeper. My roommates and I have been talking about things of this nature for some time now and this clarified much of the grey areas, so I thank you. Thank you for speaking truth to all the 20-something’s out there. I’m going to be an intern at a local church this summer and need prayer for that time as it is coming oh so soon. My hearts deepest desire is to serve our Almighty God in any way he asks; which sometimes means that I will become the one cynics are making fun of. I ask for prayer that I will remain strong relying on Christ’s power through me. Thank y’all for everything!

      Linda says:

      So glad you have roommates to talk these things over with! I’ll be praying for you as you intern this summer. Don’t you worry about any cynics. Leave them to the Lord. That way you won’t exhaust any energy except for what the Lord is asking you to do! Enjoy your summer. May God richly bless you!

      • Hannah says:

        Thank you so much Linda! It really means a lot to me that you would take time to pray for me without even knowing me. You are a blessing. Thank you!

    McKenzie says:

    Hi! My name is McKenzie! I’m 22 from Amarillo, Tx. I was raised in the church but after facing a very trumatic situation January of 2012 and suffering with PTSD God has dramatically changed my life. All I could do through my darkest nights was literally cry out to him and proclaim his promises over my life. I know now he has allowed this to happen to completely change my life and forever change my relationship with him. My boyfriend of 6 years proposed to me last weekend!!! We have said all along we would wait for Gods timing and the night before the proposal God gave me a devotional about being a bride. I know he has worked in me this last year to shape me into a bride that honors him! I am so excited to be moving into this next chapter of life but I could use all the prayer I can get…apparently marriage is hard 😉 Also God has been stirring in my heart to seek out a mentor so his post truly speaks to me! Who knows? God works in mysterious ways! Now days with technology maybe I’ll find a virtual mentor! I’m ok with that!! 🙂

      Hi McKenzie- My name is Stephanie and I am also from Amarillo!! I would be honored to pray for you! What an exciting time in your life. Yes, marriage can be hard, but it is also one of the most wonderful experiences. 🙂 We just celebrated 10 years! Your post really spoke to my heart when you wrote about proclaiming God’s promises at night. I have been there and that is the ONLY thing that got me through. Many blessings for this wonderful time of transition and may God reveal himself in a way that you have never seen before.


      • McKenzie says:


        I appreciate your prayers more than you will ever know! My email is [email protected] I would love to hear from you if you’d like to talk further! Other wise know I will be praying for you also!

    My sister, Betsy, is 29 and has accepted a position as a full-time missionary in a US location. She is visiting her post this week to meet the team she will be working with and to locate a place to live. Please pray for as she makes decisions about her living situation. Also, please pray for peace for her as this is the first time she’s permanently lived away from family. Lastly, please pray for God to use her in a powerful way to impact the lives of the young people she will be working with.

    Hey Zach Knopes and Elisabeth from Modesto, I just read your comments so I will pray for you both. My name is Dana Goodwin and I am from Ashland, KY. I am 50 years old and have 4 twenty somethings of my own (three are step-children). I have been burdened in my spirit about them as well as the twenty-somethings in our church as I know from my own children’s experiences that this is the the toughest decade of life!!! I was ecstatic when I read Beth’s blog and knew immediately I wanted to help out with my prayers. Prayer is HUGE!!!! God is all over this! Just know, I’m on Team Zach and Team Elisabeth!! Love, joy and peace to you both!!!

    Rachel says:

    Hi, my name is Rachel, I’m 20 and a student at Baylor! This is so cool.

    Right now, I ask for prayer that I can clearly hear Jesus’s voice and that I will be able to distinguish the direction of the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. I struggle with “being still” and giving Jesus that time to talk to me, instead of me just talking to Him. I’m also really working on trying to hide Jesus’s word in my heart. I grew up in church and feel like there is so much truth that I “know,” but is yet to be engrained in my heart. So I just ask for prayers that I would be receptive to truth and that the Lord would soften my heart and mold it so that I would experience transformation to become more like Jesus!

    Secondly, I have a sibling at home who is currently going through a period of rebellion and depression, and I would just love to ask for prayer for him! It’s hard for me to be away at school when my family is going through this time, but God is teaching me that my brother is in the palm of His hand, and that we serve a big big God. The same God that blinded and healed Paul is the same God we serve and God will heal my brother’s heart in HIS timing, not mine. It’s been a blessing learning to how to be diligent in prayer for my brother. The Lord is teaching me a lot about relinquishing control and practicing experiencing peace that passes understanding.

    Thank you thank you!!

    • 1081.1
      Linda says:

      Rachel, you are learning precious truths! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to pray for you and your brother. It is a privilege. Just keep the Lord first in your day, even if it means getting up earlier to make time for Him. I am glad you are making an effort to memorize God’s word. Carry it with you everywhere as you memorize and keep going over it so you don’t forget! Sink it down deep in your heart. God will transform you. I am sorry to hear about your brother. You are right, your brother is in God’s hands. Keep up Philippians 4:6-9!

    Mackie says:

    I’m 21, married and feel called to a life much, much more full than the one I live. I work full time but want to be teaching children in another country about Jesus. I want to pour out my life for the ones without a parent. I want to do something during the day that Jesus would have done during the day.
    It seems like the answer is, “well, just do it”. but I’ve been trying and the doors aren’t opening. I’m sick of all the advice. I just want breakthrough. I couldn’t appreciate Beth’s ministry more as it led me out of captivity back in high school. I trust her prayer warriors as much as I trust her. Thank you.

    • 1082.1
      Linda says:

      Hi Mackie,
      I think it’s wonderful that you want to disciple orphaned children!Is the “well, just do it” answer from people or from the Lord? How does your husband feel about going overseas with you?
      I have found that the Lord keeps the door shut for a season or for a reason. God has many lessons for us while we wait for doors to open. While you’re in that season of waiting, even though you said you are sick of advice (have you thought about why that might be?), perhaps you could be working with less fortunate children in your neighborhood, church or community that don’t have parents who are involved with their children. Teach a VBS like Backyard Bible Club or one at your church. That would give you some experience until the doors open for you.
      It might be very helpful to find an older woman who has been a missionary to talk over your concerns with and pray with.
      I will be praying for you in this special season of your life.

    Kayla says:

    Hey 🙂 My name is Kayla, I live in a small town in Nebraska. My friend told me to read this blog the other day and I am so glad I did! I am 3 months away from getting married and I can’t wait for this next season of my life, even though it is bittersweet leaving behind all that’s in this stage of my life now! As I get ready to transit from a small town to a city, to being a wife, starting a new job, making new friends etc I truly can’t wait! As i was on my knees in prayer the other day with tears streaming from my face, God reminded of the verse in Matthew 17:33 that says if we cling to our lives we will lose them. It was exactly what I needed to hear! The next day I was talking with a friend who is also about to get married and we talked alot about how we never want to lose this burning passion for Jesus, even though we are getting married. But for that passion to become more in us, in our marriage and in our lives. In a society that is so focused on our wants and the American Dream instead of God’s kingdom, my goal is to never get content in this life that is fading, but to stay alive in who God is and who He has created me to be! Thank you so much for this post, your prayers, and for all of your ministry you do! you are truly changing the world for the Lord!

      My name is Tamra. I’m from Jacksonville, FL and I’d be honored to lift you up in prayer. Beginning a new life with the one you love is an exciting time. I definitely understand what you’re going through. I married almost 33 years ago and moved out of state away from my family and friends. It’s wonderful and bittersweet all at the same time! BUT, I can tell you God will see you through the transition and you can build a wonderful life with your soon-to-be husband. As CS Lewis said, “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” I look forward to hearing from you.

    Elizabeth says:

    Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I am 20 years old. I hope I am not too late to post this. I am from Florence, AL and I am a full-time student majoring in Professional Writing. I have felt the Lord calling me to be a writer since I was in the ninth grade. Recently, the Lord has been showing me, a little more specifically what He wants from my life. I have felt called to the ministry, though I’m not sure in what aspect. The Lord has just given me many opportunities in the past two years to speak publicly about Him and His Word. Just this morning I was back in my old high school speaking to a handful of students about what it means to follow Christ.
    I am asking for prayer over my campus, that there would be revival here. For my college ministry at my local church, that it would just continue to grow and that people who darken the door’s of our church would see Jesus clearly and their hearts would be stirred and changed forever. And for the fire which Mrs. Beth was talking about would stay strong in my heart. That the Lord would give me eyes to see opportunities to minister to those around me, and that every time I speak or publish something, the Lord would be seen and glorified above all else. Thank you so much! I am trembling as I write this just thinking about all the beautiful prayer warriors, sisters in Christ, interceding for this generation. Know that I will pray for you as well, that the Lord would bless you immeasurably for your faithfulness to His calling on your lives!

      Hi Elizabeth, my name is Susan. I live in San Diego and I have 2 sons in college. Thank you for your willingness to open up and allow me to pray for you. I count it a true privilege. Your passion for Jesus is evident in your note. It’s great that you are involved in a college ministry at your church and your desire to have those who come to see Jesus thru you is amazing. I will pray for God to order your time and steps over the next weeks as your semester comes to a close and as you venture off to your summer plans. I will pray for direction and purpose for you too! If I can encourage you with one thing as I look over my few years since I was 20 – it is worth it to keep Jesus in the Center of your life – as Beth was saying – there are so many distractions and people and things that will try to pull you away – but stay strong – it is WORTH IT!

      Blessings to you my new friend!

      • Elizabeth Brock says:

        Mrs. Susan! I don’t know why but for some reason the Lord brought this to my mind again. I walked away from this post unsure if anyone would answer and I haven’t thought of it since. There was no way for me to be notified if someone commented. I am so grateful that the Lord led me to check on this again and I am deeply sorry I did not thank you sooner! Thank you immensely for the encouragement and prayer! You are a blessing and I will be praying for you as well!

        In Christ,

    Michelle says:

    My name is Michelle and I am originally from Kansas City, MO, but currently attend school in Kirksville. I guess for now I could really use some prayer to be patient and trust in God’s timing and also trust that He has my best interest in mind and that He will never leave me, but will guide me to where I need to go. I tend to stress about the future too much in regards to grades and grad school, but I really need to remember to be patient and trust and remember that my God will always help me through. Thanks!!!

      Hi Michelle,

      Yes, I will pray for you. It has been helpful for me in the past to write down all the ways God has been faithful to me (little and big things) and that helps me have the facts before me that God has never left me and has given me so many more wonderful things than I can imagine. Not just the material things, but the spiritual as well. Try to enjoy the moments of each day and stay in the moment thanking God for what He is providing to you right now. We get stressed and don’t enjoy today when we’ve got tomorrow so much on our minds. I will be praying for you. Contact me on the above link if you’d like to.

I have never been married and I find myself trying to find contentment in Gods plan for my life and not fall into the trap of what the world expects of me.

      Hi Rachael,
      My name is Sally, and am happy to lift you up in prayer. I am nearly 56, live in Columbus, OH with my husband and two young adult children who are working/in college.
      When I was 28, I was in a similar situation as you are. I had not met my husband yet, was working full time as a nurse, happily involved in my church, but struggled with being single. I didn’t meet my husband until after my 31st birthday, and we married when I was 32.
      Before I met my husband, the Lord brought me to a point of acceptance that if the best way for me to know Him was to be single, then so be it. In fact, I was feeling so content with my singleness that I nearly didn’t attend a church social function where I met my husband!
      I don’t know how much you struggle with this, but it can be difficult to be at peace when faced with others expectations, and your own.
      I will pray for you for the next two weeks. May you discover the deepest contentment in your walk with Jesus!

    My name is Heather & I live in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been married for 4 years & I’m a first time mommy to a beautiful 8 month old girl.

    I am learning to navigate the uncharted waters of discovering who I am as a woman. Who Christ has created me to be; not who I previously thought I was or who I’ve been labeled by others to be.

    I love Jesus with all my heart & desperately long to be used mightily for His kingdom. I consistently fight against fear & self doubt with His truth & promises. The moment I grab hold of truth, the enemy comes in to steal, kill & destroy it–so I know I’ve got something good when that happens & I push back!

    I am learning that prayer is one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, things that we have the privilege of taking part of! I am humbled by any prayers spoken over me. <3

God has given me an opportunity to have some free time these days (graduated two girls!!), and I have been asking Him to bring me chances to use my time wisely. There is no better use of time than PRAYER! I will be praying for you to have that passion and desire to follow Christ that Beth mentioned. Blessings, dear follower of Jesus.

    Kelsey says:

    Hi my name is Kelsey. My husband and I are both 22 and we are currently raising support to serve full time in New York City ministering to Latino college students. We both graduated from Virginia Tech last May, joined staff with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) in July and got married in August. The Lord has been so faithful to us and has used ministry and marriage to refine our hearts and draw us closer to Him.

    Currently we’re living in Southern Virginia (with my in-laws). Jesus has been igniting my heart for him and for others. I had hip surgery two months ago and God’s really used that to show me a greater depth to His love for me, and that I don’t need to do anything or prove myself. While I knew this before, it’s sunken in deeper than ever before. Please pray that this passion and love for the Lord would continue to grow and increase, and that I could show others that same selfless love I’ve been shown.

    Raising support has been really trying and my faith wavers. I believe He has called us and will provide everything we need, but then I’ll have days that it seems like we have so far to go. Thank you for praying!

    • 1091.1

      Hi Kelsey,
      So glad to hear that you came through hip surgery not just physically but spiritually stronger! I will definitely pray for these things for you.

He has so many wonderful things to show and teach you as you wait patiently for Him!

I am also getting married at the end of June, and am excited for a new chapter! But, I can already see my own sins, Satan’s lies, and the world’s pull straining my faith, especially in terms of understanding marriage. The amount of lies I’m find myself agreeing to believe as of late, is quite crazy! I would appreciate prayer especially for knowing and believing that the Lord is who He says He is!

    Jillian says:

    My name is Jillian Hazel, 26 years old, currently living in Tulsa, OK. I moved to Tulsa in 2009 to work at One Hope Ministry, which uses athletics and academics to reach kids and youth with the hope of the gospel. My daily life looks like loving 5 eighth grade boys and one girl while helping “homeschool” them. I make lunch, supervise their math and science, and teach them art. We’re like a family, and parenting teenage boys is no easy task. :)In the afternoons, I teach 9 fourth graders in our afterschool program and help with administration of the afterschool program. My nights and weekends are filled with Bible studies and sports events of the kids and informal discipleship of kids and of other people in the ministry.

    Please pray for me in all of this busy ministry that I keep my passion for God burning bright and I keep relying on Him to minister through me, not on my own strength to work. I find myself often growing harder, mostly as a defense mechanism. For every one of these kids, I can find a story that would break me apart if I dig deep enough. I sometimes try to protect myself from breaking by not letting their stories get to my heart, but then I end up not letting anything get to my heart. Pray for softness and strength.

    Lauren says:

    Hi friends,
    My name is Lauren and I am a 26 year old youth minister’s wife from a tiny town in central Texas. We moved here almost 2 years ago to follow my husband’s calling and it has been one of the best things that could have ever happened to me.

    In my early 20’s I bought into the lie that in order to have a life that’s full of meaning, you can’t be anonymous. The world needs to know you. I measured my success by how many people knew me or how many emails I had in my inbox. The Lord has since spoken true meaning into my life through putting me in a place where simplicity was valued and people truly know me not just who I am. It hasn’t been the easiest transition but it has been so worth it.

    The beauty that comes in truly investing in a place and people has awakened a part of my soul I never knew existed. My husband has always been the one who had roots, and I’ve had the wings… but I’m sprouting roots, guys!

    The power of prayer and the Lord’s provision has been so evident in my life. I love leaning into that and just soaking the promise of His love in. It’s still a battle against the devil everyday. He is absolutely not thrilled with how youth are coming to know the Lord in this town or how my husband and I are striving to live above reproach so I know we can use all the prayer we can get on this journey. I’m so grateful the 20 somethings are being poured into. Not just because I am one but because it’s a beautiful modern day picture of Paul and Timothy! Thank you prayer warriors!

    Hi, my name is Lauren. I am about to be 25 in May. I have been a missionary in Ventanilla, Peru for almost 3 1/2 years now. It has been a wonderful, trying, hard, but blessed by God for sure. I just ask that you would pray that I would love the Peruvian people with all of my heart, that I would have strength to not fall into temptation, and that I would be able to lead this team of others who have come to join me over this past year. I ask that you would pray that I would have supernatural strength and wisdom to keep sharing the gospel and discipling people in a place where there are few Christians. I so appreciate your prayers, this blog post just came at the perfect time for me. I try to keep people updated about what is going on here in Peru through Thanks so much for praying for me, this is such a blessing to my life.

    My name is Lindsay 🙂 and I am from California.

    I am 21 and currently a student at a university. I am coming back to Jesus after a period of Spiritual drought and it is harder than ever! But right now, I am holding on to the verse Joel 2:12. My desire is to love Jesus and people with everything in me, but I struggle with busyness and doubt.

    My name is Heather. I am 27, living in Los Lunas, NM. Currently, I am a 8th grade Language Arts teacher at a middle school in my area. I will finish my Master of Arts from the University of New Mexico in the Spring of 2014. Thank you, Lord! However, none of these things are my pertinent prayer requests. In July, my daddy passed away unexpectantly during rotator cuff surgery. The scars of this event are definitely on my heart. I have been in New Mexico for seven years and prior to my dad dying, I have longed to move back home to Florida. My mom lives in Florida as well as my aging grandmother. My mom has many complications from Diabetes that causes her to struggle daily to maintain her weight. My heart aches to move back home. But, with the economic times, our time fell much later than the rest of the country. I pray that in His divine timing we (my husband and I) will be able to sell our Country home and be able to move back to Florida.
    The Lord has proven Himself time after time. Please pray with me.

      Hi Heather,

      I have been thinking of you ever since I read your post. I love the privilege of praying for you. I am 57-years old with a 12-year old! I live in California and I was an elementary teacher before my son came along. I lived in VA in the country for 9 years and it was very hard to be away from family. I grew up in California. I loved living in the country but I know the ache of missing your loved ones and wanting to be there to help. So… I know the Lord can work things out to sell your country house and move back because I have been there! I am not sure how things will work out in your situation but I will keep you and your husband in prayer. I will be thinking of you in your classroom and in your studies. Jesus has a plan and it is more than we can ask or think. Ephesians 3:20. Praying with you, Heather.
