Welcome to Ask in Prayer
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Prayer Requests on the Forum
I've been adding requests I get from my personal contacts on Facebook. These requests come from all over the world. Some are individualized while others are for churches or other groups.

Please take time and read the Prayer Requests section of the ASK IN PRAYER forum.

We are a New Website About Prayer and Praying

This is a brand new website which is still under construction... and I want to welcome you. I hope you will find this a great place to spend some time and share some thoughts.

Here I was doing dishes and my mind just shifts into high gear and after that, I was determined to go with the idea and make the website.
"When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of 'No answer.' It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, 'Peace, child; you don't understand.” — C.S. Lewis
