Prayers for Different States of Life

Christians are called to pray always. Sometimes this is not an easy thing to do, especially when we are busy with work, chores, children, etc. This section makes use of different state of people's lives.

This area can include prayers for ministers, fathers, mothers, law enforcers, doctors. When children start the school year, pray for them and their year ahead, pray for the unemployed, travelers, the elderly.

It is also a area to pray if you are in a bad mood or frame of mind, are moving or praying before a trip, praying when in doubt of something or for discernment.

Requesting Prayers


Today, I am officially divorced. The words are hitting me like a ton of bricks.

39 yrs.

I cannot picture not being in his life anymore. So, I know that this is not really healthy to think that way. I ask for prayers for the following:

That we both may mentally accept and move forward.
That we both may forgive whatever hurts from the past and remain friends, where we can share our children and grandchildren's lives.
That we may be there for each other, if need be.

I know this sounds like not wanting to let go.. I do but feel that for all the years, which many were very good, and both of us being good people but cannot live together (due to my illness) that we still can remain loving friends.

Am I being unrealistic in asking for these prayers? The Lord knows what is in my heart.

O Lord, I give you my heart... mend it. Amen.


Yours in Christ,
