Lord, Hear Our Prayers

My mental health is out of control and my depression has overtaken my life. I'm in a constant state of anxiety and I'm barely functioning. I have made a lot of bad decisions in the last two years and I need guidance and prayer to help me correct my past mistakes so I can move forward. I know I haven't been the person I should be. Please pray for me, I'm desperately in need of help. Thank you!

Please pray that the Lord would deliver his people from evil men; That the Lord would preserve his people from violent men, who plan evil things in their heart and stir up wars continually. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God’s will be done in the lives of the world’s leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. Pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. God can turn the hearts of kings. Earnestly pray that the people of America and it’s leaders will humble themselves and seek the Lords face and turn from their wicked ways. Pray that the Lord would hear from heaven and forgive our countries sins and heal our land. God Bless America Pray that the Lord would grant peace in America, that we may lie down and no one will make us afraid. That the Lord would remove wild beasts from the land, and that the sword will not pass through our country and that President Trump along with our leaders be filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might to declare the sins of Gods people. Please pray that the Lord would pour out his spirit on his servants, throughout the world both men and women. Pray for the peace of Israel. In Jesus Name Amen.

Father, please help me, you knows my pain, you always know what was happened because you see everything a most hidden corner though God knows, I come with a broken heart, I need you. Please forgive me and Damianus too. Father, You knows how long I have waited for a reconciliation and restore relations for me and him. Please God, soften and touch Damianus' heart for me. I can’t touch his heart but Lord you can. I always try to be strong, but to be honest I was deeply hurt. please bless those who hate me, I never want to hurt them or avenge their treatment, I just want them to know I was still there, I'm alive, and I'm still waiting for a miracle. I'm still waiting for the doors of their hearts open to me. please touched me, treat wounds within me, help me to move as you wish, to delete all trauma. I’m putting the disappointments, pain and my whole hope in your hands, please make this miracle happen for me

I am 7.5 weeks pregnant with our third child and have had complications from the very beginning (and am now taking progesterone injections and supplements to improve the outcome). Yesterday at our ultrasound we learned that our baby isn't growing as quickly as it should be. We are praying for a miracle. We desperately want our baby to be OK and believe strongly in the power of prayer. Thank you for joining us in praying for our baby.
