Pray for my son Jim. He is very angry and depressed. He needs a job and has for a long time. He is 48 years old now and is having like a midlife crisis or hitting rock bottom, I'm not sure, or maybe all of the above. He tried to get a job but his blood pressure was too high to drive for this company. The doctor gave him blood pressure medication, but he won't take it. He fishes in Alaska in the summer, but that only complicates the situation as far as getting a good steady job. His self-worth is very low and I am very concerned about him. He lives with me or on my property. He doesn't have his own place, which probably makes him feel worse, but he won't do anything about it. I want the best for him and for me. I love him very much, but am praying for a better life than he has now, especially getting a job, which would help build his self-worth up again. Thanks very much. His wife is praying for him also. She doesn't know what to do either.

What is Prayer?
- Prayer is an incredible privilege. God, the King of everything, invites us to communicate with Him. Prayer is simply talking with God. Whether it is a praise, a need, or a struggle, we have the opportunity to go to God in prayer. (Matthew 5, 6 / Romans 12 / Ephesians 6 / Hebrews 4)
Why do We Pray
- Prayer is the main avenue to create, cultivate, and sustain a deep connection with God. From the Bible, we get the picture that prayer is a major part of Heaven’s Kingdom. Jesus’ example is all we need to understand the reason for prayer. Over and over again in the New Testament especially leading up to the Cross, we see the words in Scripture of Him going away to pray. He models a commitment to pray often which communicates the importance of regular prayer. (Matthew 14, 26 / Mark 1 / Luke 5, 6 / Colossians 4 / 1 Thessalonians 5)
- Scripture also encourages us to ask others to join us in prayer. We are honored that you would trust us to partner with you in prayer. It is our privilege to pray for you and with you for any need or opportunity in your life.
(Ecclesiastes 4 / Ephesians 6 / James 5)
