Please pray for me without ceasing. My parents forsake me and just thinking about themselves so that my life and future is messed up. Their cousin cheated and stole their property. Then when my life was better I usually helped my older sister financially but now she wants to take over all the properties of our parents. She stole the money that can be used for the medical and treatment of our father who was terminally ill. Even she with my younger brother instead wanted our father who was terminally ill that his life be terminated, rather than given treatment. Until finally our father passed away, my older sister never cease slandering me. I was without a job when I had to take care of our father. I am very poor after our father passed away. I need prayer in order to obtain employment and recovery from illness. I also want to have a charge to complete my studies at the university without any problems. Although I've been a long time don’t attend study since does not have a charge. I need a lot of prayer and miracles. - TD, Indonesia, March 3, 2017.

Restore & reunite husband and wife with love and trust for each other; I got married in 2014, stayed with husband only for 65 days. We were very happy with each other during our stay together and I left my husbands residence to apply for my spouse visa. Since then am marital problem due to misunderstandings and ego caused by mediators and in-laws. Now my marriage is on the verge of divorce. My husband and in laws want me to give them a mutual divorce. My marriage is a holy sacred sacrament that was conducted in God’s Church and I cannot bear it breaking and the holy sacrament being tarnished. I love my husband immensely but he says both families don’t get along, so it’s best to separate. For 6 months he didn’t speak to me at all but on 8th April 2016 after 6 months we spoke to each other for an hour, altho i didn’t see a major change in him, .1% there was a change in him. He didn’t utter the evil word DIVORCE at all. Am requesting you to please pray that my husband comes back into this marriage with love, care, trust and respect. Please pray to remove the satanic word DIVORCE from my husband’s, father in laws and sister in laws thoughts, subconscious mind, unconscious minds, conscious minds and actions for ever. Please pray that my husband forgives and forgets all the past bitterness that has happened in our relationship. Bible say Jesus calmed the storm and wind and I believe he can also calm my father in law, sister in law and husband with the wrong they are doing and bring them back with good insight. Please pray for Jesus to calm them and to accept this marriage and reunite the holy sacrament that God joined. Only strong prayers and a miracle can save this marriage and bring my husband back in this marriage with love, trust, respect and care. Am humbly begging to keep me in your prayers for this marriage to reunite. - CRK, March 10, 2016.
