Pray for our Daughter
Thank you for your prayers, Pastor Raker! I watched live (at 8am our time) and appreciate your prayers. I am praying for your son, Alex. God Bless!
Pray for our daughter
Pastor Tony Raker, I noted in your prayer requests that you have been challenged with your son's surgeries. I have been praying for him. A friend in Coeur d’Alene Idaho told me your church has a reputation as prayer warriors spanning the world. I am desperately seeking as many Christians as I can to pray for our 9 year old daughter, Grace. She was diagnosed with cancer last November and she has been a trooper in fighting it. She is in remission now and the doctors say it looks promising She said to me this is good because she is tired of being sick and hurting every time they put those chemo drugs in her and she wants her hair back. She is so calm, telling me that God has a plan for her. She knows this because an angel told her so in her dreams. She is happy to everyone she meets and is often the one to comfort them when they cry looking at her bald head and tubes in her. But she admits the chemo is very painful and she is tired all the time.
Her last chemo treatment was in August and we are waiting for test results to continue to show the cancer is gone. My husband is a farmer in Walla Walla, WA where we grow 40 acres of Vidalia onions. The valley smells like onions from May through September. Our daughter loves to help with the farm, rising at dawn and getting the eggs from our chickens, caring for the lambs in the spring, and helping her Dad plant onion bulbs every April and June. She could not do much this year but is looking forward to helping next growing season.
The kids at her school have been great, having an early Easter party in February when it looked like she might not make it to Easter. She insisted she knew she would be ok because an angel that has been telling her so her in her dreams. He kept telling her that Jesus loves her and it is not ehr time to join Him. When we brought her home two weeks ago, the whole town seemed to line the country road and our driveway, welcoming our angel home. Many had tears in their eyes.
The cafe made us meals and they or townspeople who ate there would bring the meals by our house. Our refrigerator was always stocked. We never had to cook this summer! And several neighbors helped harvest both crops of onions in June and this month. We would come home to find our bins full and delivery trucks already scheduled for pick up.
God is good! Please pray for our Grace. Of course I include your Alex in our prayers. May God's will bring us happiness and joy with His blessings and acceptance when His plan is not to our liking. He is in control!
God bless you, Tony Raker! and your Alex!
Pray for our town
Pastor Raker, I can see from your sermons and Issues and Answers that you are a stickler for God's word. I deeply appreciate your indepth preaching direct from His word and not caring whose toes you step on! Keep it up brother!
Please pray for our small town of Shasta, CA as several churches are closing as attendance shrinks and others are torn apart by in fighting. Many people are quitting, some because they do not like being reminded of their sins, they want the music and their "ears tickled" by promises of forgiveness. Others are hungry for God's word and they are starving at the modern churches who focus on music and feel-good sermons. My wife & I can almost feel the demons plugging up our churches and working on our neighbors.
Your sermons are direct from His word and they may hurt, but they are true! Amen brother!, Amen! We now watch your sermons on YouTube and sometimes on your website. Our church only has 34 members, but we are dedicated to following the teachings of Jesus and God's word. We have about a dozen who make their monthly appearance and a couple dozen more who come on Easter and Christmas. Many youth and young families will not come because they are bored and want more music. Like many young people, they want to be entertained.
I just downloaded your bulletin and it is impressive! That's all the entertainment I need in those colorful pages with a serious message and hard-hitting pictures. Are you broadcasting on TV? You should. You would be another Jerry Falwell.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling here. I just wanted to ask for prayer because I am scared for our town and our state as the Democrats are making war against God and trying to put in their own convoluted plans...which never work! Pray for us, Pastor! God bless you!
I was sideswiped in Harrisonburg last week. No one was hurt, thank God. The insurance companies decided it was my fault. I need prayer to repair the damages to my car. My insurance company is paying for the other lady's damages. My arm has healed and I am ok physically. I have two kittens now, Angel & Creamer. They keep me busy!
Please pray for my finances and that I can get to Alaska this fall. Thank you.
Prayer for employment
Hi - Please pray for me I am out of work and seeking the Lord to provide an open door of employment to me . - I am very well qualified in financial services but have been over looked for less qualified and experienced candidates and finding it tough - please pray for a breakthrough from god for this - I have been a generous donor to the kingdom of God. thanks so much!
Pray for the kids I am witnessing to
Xavier and Mark are listening and asking questions. The bibles supplied by the church are very good ones. The boys seem appreciative. I will ask them questions that should encourage them to look up answers to my questions.
