please pray to Father God to pour out His grace, love, time and forgiveness on my backstabbers, especially in family and at work, in Jesus mighty name amen!
I fell while bowling with the seniors yesterday and badly injured my right shoulder. Please pray for rapid healing before I move next month.
Pray for 2 year old Colin
I was informed by my coworker today that her 2 year old nephew was diagnosed with leukemia and is currently at UVA hospital starting treatments that will last 3 years. The family needs our prayers for this little guy. His aunt Jennifer has asked that we pray for healing for Colin. Strength, perseverance, guidance for the family to get through this difficult time.
I fervently believe in the power of prayer and believe that when we are in agreement in our prayers God is faithful and will answer them. Thanks in advance to our prayer warriors at Grace.
Pastor Raker. I just wanted to say Thank You for inspiring us with your wonderful bulletins! We used to use black and white bulletins with no graphics. I took over producing and printing our bulletin in September 2018. Two of our church members brought me copies of your bulletins saying this is how a bulletin should look. I noted it was done in Word but with a lot of fancy printing tricks inserting customized graphics. So I took a class and learned Microsoft Word. Using your bulletins as a template I started improving our own bulletins.The response from the 140 some members of our church was immediate and very positive! They loved it!
I am now putting out a bulletin similar to yours. I'll send you a copy. It is finding its way to our small town library here in Gatesville, in the great state of Texas. It was even mentioned in our town newspaper for "creativity"! And all because whoever puts together your bulletin inspired us! Please pass on our Thanks! and Praise God that this bulletin is drawing attention to His word!
Hello Pastor Raker, My name is Frank Mason. I live in Sacaton, Arizona. Kind of in the desert in a small community in central Arizona. We're too small for a church, so I was real glad to find you on the internet a few months ago. I've watched bout a dozen of your sermons and wanted to tell you what they mean to me. You give me hope that God is still there, His plan is still in play and Jesus will return when He's good and ready.
I see the world going the wrong direction, and many here in the desert are escaping California and the rest of the world as they slide into evil. So much in the world today is wrong, I am concerned the time is near when the Lord will return I pray I am ready.
My family don't talk to me anymore. They live in Sacramento, California and Malibu. They do not believe in God and barely tolerate me, often looking aside at each other when I talk about God or inst on praying before a meal. My grandkids do not know God at all and dismiss Him because their parents do. Please pray for them!
I am so tired, 81 years on this old earth. I've seen a lot. I have my old Farmall tractor that I tinker with. I hunt jackrabbits. I mine a little but mostly I just watch TV now. Especially when it gets hot and it can get hot here! 94 yesterday and that's considered a mild day around these parts. I read to my grandkids from the Bible and they like the stories and ask questions. My grown kids just roll their eyes but tolerate me saying the old legends are good for ethics and behavior as long as you don't expect a god to answer you when you talk to him. They teach their kids they have to make decisions themselves, not rely on an imaginary being to lean on. They'll learn the truth some day.
Keep those messages coming. You are like a professor trying to teach his students the facts. Are you a professor? Wouldn't surprise me none. Keep those messages coming. I'm praying for you and your small church. You're all amazing in your reach and spreading the word all over the world like you do.
Thanks again. May God bless you all. Pray for my children and grandchildren to know the Lord.
Pastor Raker, You are on target, mate, with your callout of liars and those who call good evil and evil good. Here in Australia, we tend to tell the bloody truth, even if it hurts. The hard part, of course, is waiting for the Lord to return and put these idiots who think they're wise in their place. I want to ask them, how often have they been right? The Lord's book has NEVER been wrong! That you can bet your soul on. For myself, I tend to remind myself of Psalm 27:14 where it says "Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!"
Keep putting the message out there, brother. Christians around the world are hearing you, whether they completely agree or not. The seed has been planted and those who dismissed you as a kook will be reminded they heard your message. Happy Resurrection Day from Australia!
God is good!
Greetings to your, honored Reverend Tony Raker! I apologize that I have been remiss is writing you, but I am tiring as I age. God has blessed me with 80 years on this earth and I am grateful that He lets me do His fine work planting seeds for salvation. How are you and your wonderful wife? How are your boys? I understand they are in wheelchairs from your photos on your website. I pray they are doing well. And I see you are absolutely blessed with your young grand daughter, Lorilai. Her painted face on the website is very cute. Do you not also have a grandson? What is his name? Perhaps you can post his picture on your website soon as well.
Life is good in our village. My grand children have peaceful school classes and can lay in the fields again. We see many military vehicles go by our village as Russia is now providing T90 tanks to join the American, British and French armored vehicles that have defeated Daesh.
I am showing your sermons using my thumbdrives. A government official tried to confiscate them but we hid them so they could not be found and brought them back out to share with the lost here in Iraq. Jehovahs Witnesses from Russia also tried to get me to turn them over to them for destruction as they want no competition with their perverted teachings. I shared with them one of your Issues & Answers, much to their dismay! They are not happy with me but are staying away for now.
We are all healthy and well-fed for some time now. We have restored our village so everyone has a home. The building we use for our church was completed before all other buildings as it is our rock on which all else is built. Our flocks are producing good lambs and little goats again. We planted a crop of wheat last summer and expect a good harvest in June. We have 10 hectares planted this year! I think that is 25 acres in America, yes? It is necessary for our bread.
Please continue to pray for us. We are healthy and doing well though I am very tired and unable to move around as much as I used to. I share God's word, especially your recent sermon on Jesus equals Truth. I am trying to help others with Issues and Answers but it needs to be reorganized as it seems haphazard in which sections titles reside.
We look forward to the Lord's soon coming. Many here are angry with God for the troubles our land has seen, but I share with them Exodus 23:20 where we are told not to provoke Him, but obey Him. It is about trust and all things in His time for our reward is not on this earth and we absolutely cannot understand His plan. This is but a testing ground so one would be wise to follow His instructions while on this earth. After all, even Lucifer and his devils acknowledge the Lord's power and even his plan. They just refuse to bow to Him and stalk the land seeking disgruntled people to lead away from salvation. It appears to me that mankind has used the knowledge they gained from the apple poorly and without complete understanding, they rely on their own judgement. That is why I think there are so many problems in the world today. Human judgement is flawed without God's guidance. I pray He returns soon to bring on the era of peace on earth.
My wife is calling me to our mid day meal. I must leave you now.
Please pass my hearty greetings to your wonderful warriors in your church. I pray for you all often.
In Christ, Peace be upon you and your house.
Prayer for Finland
Please pray and bless the Finnish nation. The enemy is trying to take control of the leadership of our country. It seems like the people have become blind to the works of the enemy. Churches seem to be sleeping. Please pray over our nation! In 10 days we have elections. Pray that God will provide Finland with a Christian leader. Thank you! God bless!
Healing and provision
Please pray for me. I recently got out of a long-term relationship with a man who was very cruel and abusive. Leaving that relationship left me homeless and without a car. The place that I found that I could stay at temporarily is not a good environment. There is always a lot of noise, tension, chaos, cursing and slamming doors. It wreaks havoc on my PTSD, which is a result of the abusive relationship I was in. My only income is my disability, so I am finding it difficult to find an affordable place to live. I constantly feel unsafe here. I spend a lot of time in my room by myself, which helps alleviate some of the tension; but it does not help with the noise, slamming doors, and very loud cursing. I don’t have a car, so I can’t go anywhere. I feel like a prisoner. It is really taking a huge toll on me. Every day, I feel more and more defeated, discouraged and depressed, even though I spend time in Bible study and prayer every day. I am spending more and more time wishing that I were dead. Please pray for God to give me a quiet and safe place to live, a car, and healing. My name is Cynthia.
I am also requesting prayer for the man who was cruel to me and abused me. People say that I should hate him because he is evil. I know that although what he did to me is evil, he is not evil. He is a person who does not know Jesus as his Savior, and has no one else in his life who gives him Godly counsel and speaks the truth of God’s Word to him. I no longer have any contact with the man for my safety; but I still would like for him to come to know Jesus as his Savior. Please pray that God will send Godly men into his life; and that the Holy Spirit will convict this man and draw him to Jesus. This man’s name is Franklin.
Thank you so very much for your prayers. I truly appreciate them.
Protection and healing
Strong Holy Spirit filled prayer desperately needed over Juha! He is under heavy persecution and has to face public slander. May God conquer Juha’s enemies hearts with His powerful love, and silence their evil tongues. Bless Juha so he can see and feel how Heavenly Father protects and guides Juha with holy wisdom. May Gods favor follow Juha where ever he goes and whomever he meets. May heavenly light shine from Juha and he will win whatever obstacles come along the way!
Please pray for me as well for I have suffered for 13 years of a painful lump in my gum. The pain can get so bad it prevents me from speaking and eating. The pain overwhelms my whole being and my head feels like it’s filled with thousands of bees. I’m a widow with two lovely daughters but I am alone. Please pray that I would be able to forgive past wrongs I have faced and be set free from bitterness. Depression tries to haunt me but I put my faith in the good Lord! May He heal my damaged legs and hands as well.
Thank you for your prayers and God bless!
Senor Raker, I am thankful for your broadcast today. As you know, my country is currently undergoing severe struggles with lying from our government and their gangs and the people are very angry. I heard about your broadcasts from my sister in Idaho who knows Rob, your tech guy. Rob has been a good friend to my sister's family for many years. Her children love him very much and call him uncle Rob since very young.
We are all enduring hunger, darkness and persecution here waiting for the government to finally fall. As long as the socialists remain in control, we deteriorate even worse than the day before. They have badly mismanaged our country. Please pray for us. My wife's mother has taken our children to Columbia where they get food from the UN and US charities. My wife and I hope to join them soon, but my mother is so ill, it is difficult to leave him now.
Please pray for us! We need strength, food, medicine, peace and help. Pray God moves to remove the government before US president Trump rashly attacks us. War is not the answer, but Mr Trump is so rash and unpredictable, we are in great fear here. Please pray a path will open soon to save our country.
Florence is in the hospital and is going to have a hearth cath. today. (Sunday) Bill is asking for the church to pray for her and the doctors.
Pray that God's will be done in my life. Give me wisdom and knowledge.
I wanted to tell you that Ali has been called home by our loving God. He was lost in a robbery during a supply trip to Mosul.. He was 45. His wife, Miriam now lives with us. It is sad way to happen, but I am now blessed with two attentive women who make sure I eat and rest. Even with two women in my house, there is peace, praise God! ok, not always, but usually. We are doing well though I am tired and not well. Our village is safe and growing. We have enough to eat. God is good as you say. My grandchildren surround me each evening to listen to God's word which Ir ead form the Bible. I pray my lessons are taken in and help them become wise.
Life is good as our village grows and peace reigns here for now. We are blessed as babies are born and know quiet lives inn safety and plenty. My heart is causing pain but I cannot go to hospital and nearby clinic only gives me aspirin for the pain. Still, I soldier on as long as God wills it.
Peace on your house brother!
Wisdom for Life
I often feel that I’m hardly making it, and I need a lot more wisdom. Please pray that God will give me wisdom for success in every area of life. Pray for the wisdom to succeed in college, in all my classes. Pray for wisdom to take care of my health. Pray for wisdom in relationships. I graduate in 2 months, so pray especially for wisdom to plan for the future. Wisdom to plan out where to live, and wisdom to apply for the right job for after I graduate. Pray for wisdom to pursue and fulfill God’s purpose and calling for my life. Pray for wisdom to live for the Lord and serve the Lord well. Pray for wisdom in every area of my life, and that God will answer this beyond anything I could imagine. Thanks.

Protection against curse and black magic
I would like prayers to free Lukas Flucht (born on 11 of December of 1988) from a black magic, demonic oppression and curse. I ask you with all my heart to please pray as much as you can, this situation is out of control now. I believe in the power of prayers to help him. You may share this request, just please don't post on website.
