Prayer

Welcome to the Prayer page at Idlewild. Here you will find resources such as who and what to pray for specifically, including requests from the leaders of the church, upcoming events, Watchman on the Wall signup, and more.

Our goal is to initiate fresh, heart-stirring prayer content and scriptural, Christ-focused encouragement to motivate Spirt led prayer in the church.

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
(Mark 1:35, 2005 NIV)
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing…. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
(John 15:5,7 NASB)

Hello-

I pray for a friend, Sue, who has had thyroid cancer and now has breast cancer. She had a tough go of it with the thyroid cancer, but feels she will make it through with the breast cancer. Surgery is on June 24. She is not a member of Idlewild, but asked to be put on their prayer list and I will pray for her on Wednesday evening Praylude.

Thank you!

[We read] In the King James Bible, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."

O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada, Poland and Great Britain. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?

Please pray that Great Britain, Poland, the USA/Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).

* Poland, pray for freedom from dead religion to saving faith of Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord by faith only,

* the Church in the USA & Canada & Great Britain – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church - Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

* my family:

1. Bad executives are hurting me. Please pray for God's order in that case.

2. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15

3. Pray for God's will, wisdom, discernment, revelation and recognition for me and my family; I ask God for Edmund’s work situation, God's direction for Edmund , Dorothy, Peter, Daniel and Ann (also God's protection and blessings over the company where she works and she needs a husband),

4. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work.

Please pray I have been diagnosed with kidney failure for about 5 years. I need a car to get around and try to work. My son has an extra car, that he is selling for a low amount. My daughter will give me the money to buy the car. But the lady who my son is with wants to sell it to her friend's son. When I was able I helped my son many times. Please pray that I have favor with him and that he sells me the car tomorrow. And that they do not fight about it. Because I really need it and can't afford to buy another car. Thank you for praying.

Please pray for healing for my 15 year old son Brandon Reid. His right kneecap dislocates frequently and the orthopedist advised he must have surgery. Brandon has an abnormally long tendon connecting his kneecap and as a result his kneecap is not located in the correct place. When Brandon's leg is fully straightened, the kneecap dislocates. The orthopedist said the surgery to fix the issue will not be simple and will also involve breaking a part of his leg surgically in order to correct the structural problem. The Dr. advised the surgery is much higher risk compared to a normal knee surgery and the complete recovery will take up to a year.

I made some stupid decisions in the past and now have $5,500 in debt to show for it. It has absolutely destroyed my credit. I've been trying to consolidate it, but in doing so, the applications hurt my credit even more and I keep getting rejected.

I'm trying to move out of my apartment and in to a home and although I am responsible NOW, my past is keeping me from being able to move forward. - I just feel stuck and discouraged.

PRAISE REPORT!!!

Thank you for praying for my brother-in-law in Lexington, Kentucky who was dying from COVID-19. He has recovered after being on a ventilator for 8 weeks! He is alert and talking. He remembers the family. He is regaining his appetite. The hospital is calling him "their miracle patient"! He still has much rehabilitation ahead, but his prognosis is great! Praise God. The rest of his household who also tested positive has fully recovered also. Thank you for your prayers.

My 80 year old father took a hard fall this morning before the sun came up getting out of his recliner where he slept. He has a cut on his arm and a very large bruise on his back where he hit a table before the ground. Pray for him to be ok and for his 86 year old wife to develop emotional maturity and stop being a bully. She locked him out of their bedroom because she can't always get her way. I'm worried about my father's safety and have been very emotional all day. Thank you.
