А еще дальше вновь громоздились, поднимаясь к небу, бастионы Диаспара. Стоя рядом с ним, Алистра рассматривала панораму с удовольствием, но без особого удивления. Она видела город бессчетное число раз с других, почти столь же выгодно расположенных точек - и со значительно большим комфортом. - Вот наш мир, весь, целиком, - сказал Элвин. - Теперь я хочу показать тебе кое-что. Отойдя от решетки, он направился к удаленному световому кругу в дальнем конце туннеля.
Loving Father I have a friend whose character is being attacked and falsities are being said about them. I am concerned for them as this is a difficult and painful thing to face but I am also concerned that the worry of all that is going on in their life will be detrimental to their health.
I pray that You will give my friend Your peace that surpasses comprehension and that in Your time and Your way You will diffuse this unpleasant attack. Amen
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You with a heart – broken and full of sadness, knowing that my dear friend has gradually been drawn back into the world and seems to have forgotten the commitment that they made to Christ, some time ago, and all that He has done at Calvary to save us from our sins.
Father I neither know what to say or what to do to help, but we seem to be drifting further and further apart, almost to the point that there is a barrier erected between us. Oh Lord my heart is so sad and I ask You in Your grace and mercy to help in this time of need. Look down on this dear friend and I pray that you would reach down and turn their hearts back to You.
Lord I know that this must grieve Your heart so much more than mine and so, by Your grace.. I pray that whatever it takes that You would draw them back to Yourself - I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, who died that we both might live.. bring back this straying sheep to Your fold and into Your arms of love – I pray in Jesus name,
Dear Heavenly Lord, I thank You for my place of work and I come to You today to lift up each of my friends at work, in prayer to You. Lord I know that there is nothing that is a mistake or a coincidence in Your economy and I believe that You have placed me there for a specific purpose – help me to find that purpose out, in the lives of all with whom I work.
Help me Lord to demonstrate Your grace and friendliness towards my friends at work and may I conduct myself in a godly and friendly manner towards each and every one. Help me also to be able to share Your word at my work and be ready and willing to give an answer for what I believe. Lord You know each of these friend at work so much better than I do and You know the hurts and the pain that each one is carrying – put Your words in my mouth so that I may speak into whatever situation is heavy on their heart and may You use my simple witness to speak words of comfort and help to those in need. And Lord I pray that Jesus Himself may be glorified in my life - such that many come to see their need of Jesus as their Saviour.. in Whose name we pray,
Heavenly Father I lift up my dear friend who has contracted a serious illness – and Lord You know better than I the difficulties and problems that this is causing. Help us all to turn to You in this time of deep distress and surround my dear friend I pray, with Your comforting arms of blessing and pour into all our hearts Your peace that passes understanding. Strengthen our hearts, and calm the fears of all concerned, with the blessed hope that we all have in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord I place the life of my dear friend into Your safekeeping and pray that Your hand of blessing would carry us all through the coming days and weeks – and Lord I ask that Your healing touch would be upon this dear one, whom we all love so deeply.
Lord Your healing hand has not lost its power and Your arm has not lost its strength – and so we pray that You would reach out and flood healing into the broken body of our friend and that You would bring wholeness to their soul – and Lord, we do praise You that no matter what the outcome may be, YOUR grace is sufficient for all our needs and that Your love for each of us has not diminished of any of its grace.
Comfort and bless this dear friend of ours and may each of us know with assurance that You are in control, and that nothing can happen of which you are unaware - we pray in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father how good it is when Christian brothers and sisters live and grow together in union with each other and in love with the Lord Jesus. I thank You for every member of our church and the friendships that have developed between us.
May we individually and collectively be filled day by day with a knowledge of You and may we all grow together in love and be filled with all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that together we may walk worthily of the Lord and live godly in Christ Jesus.
Keep us from all foolish arguments or bitternesses, which can so often destroy the gracious fellowship that You desire of all Your children. Bind us together in love, by the power of Your Holy Spirit and give each one the gifts and graces that are needed and as You see fit.. so that together we may minister to each other as we unite together to worship You. We as this in Jesus name,
Dear Lord, I praise and thank You for my special friend and the bond of friendship that has developed between us. Lord it reminds me of the precious closeness that David had with Jonathan or of the deep affection that Ruth and Naomi built up between them, and I thank You from the bottom of my heart for this dear one that has become so special to me - particularly at this time of my life.
Lord I lift up my dear friend to You and pray Your grace and love would surround and protect them and that showers of Your blessings would descend upon them. Lord I pray that they may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and I ask that they draw ever closer to You with Your unbreakable cords of love and grace.
Strengthen and encourage, and unite us together more and more as together we become increasingly rooted and grounded in You and to Your glory. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Saviour,
Lord - thank You for friends and friendships and for the wonderful way that we have been designed by You to interact and compliment each other and to be there to quietly support and encourage in times of sadness as well as joy. Father I do thank You for this very special friend that you brought into my life at a time when he was most needed and for the close bond of fellowship that has been growing between us ever since.
Lord I lift up this treasured friend of mine and thank You for the great blessing that he has been in my life and for the wisdom and discernment that You have been gracious to bestow on him. I praise You for the way that You have been using and moulding him, training and equipping him, preparing and strengthening him to carry out Your plans and purposes in his life to - Your praise and glory.
Thank You for his faithful witness, personal testimony, understanding heart and spirit of encouragement.. and thank You Father for the unique contribution he is making to the furtherance of Your kingdom. May he grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus and may he be enfolded in Your love and peace and hear You say, well done good and faithful servant, in Jesus name we pray,
What a gracious God you are and worthy of all our praise and worship, for You are the God who created us to enjoy fellowship with one another and with You – and You formed us to be relational beings with both emotions and feelings. Thank You Lord for the wonderful friend that You have brought into my life, by Your grace. She has been such a joy and encouragement to me.. and I have been able to see Your hand of blessing in our friendship from the very beginning, knowing that You were the one that drew us together in the first place and allowed such a beautiful relationships to develop.
Lord I do thank You for her – for she has been such a blessing to me and I praise and thank You for the wonderful things that You are doing in her life, by Your grace. Thank You for her grace and wisdom, her gentleness and devotion to You – Lord she truly is an inspiration to me and I pray that You would continue to bless her and use her, strengthen and protect her, comfort and refresh her and use her in the corner of Your field where You have placed her. May she grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus in the days that lie ahead and keep her looking to Jesus, in Whose name we pray,
Heavenly Father I thank You for the wonderful Christian friends that You have brought into my life – each one so precious to You and each one who has brought such joy and encouragement into my life.
Father I thank You for the gifts and talents that each has been endowed with and the way that each one has brought something new and unique into my life - I ask Your special blessing upon each one and pray that together we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ – as we fellowship together around Your Word and encourage each other in the trials and difficulties that we are all facing at this time.

Thank You Lord for the blessing of friendship and for the circle of love that surrounds all those that trusts in Your name. Thank You for the gift of fellowship and for the bonding of all those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.
Thank You for the blessings we enjoy and for the love and grace that flows like a river between us – when our hearts have been made clean before the Lord and we look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Help us to laugh with those that laugh, to weep with those that mourn – to celebrate with those who are joyful and to comfort those that need us to share in their pain.
Build us up in a bond of love and friendship. Protect and provide for those friends of ours that are needy. Nourish and enrich all our lives with the Word of truth and the Gospel of grace and may we grow ever closer to each other and to You, in Jesus name we pray,
Dear heavenly Father, You created us to be social beings and You designed us to build up special relationships and friendships with those that pass along our way – sometimes family members and at other times strangers that simply walk into our lives or cross our path.. and who remain bound up with us for the rest of our time on earth.
Lord I lift up those who do not have any special friend or who desire to have someone significant or important in their lives – not simply as a marriage partner but a friend, a kindred spirit – a special person with whom they can build up a trusting relationship, and who will share in their joys as well as their sorrows. Look down in pity on those that have such a longing in their hearts and give them the desire of their heart we pray.. so that together they can encourage and edify each other in the faith, and unite together in praise and worship with the God who in His loving-kindness drew them into each others lives. We ask this in the precious name of Jesus,
Dear Lord Jesus, First I would like to thank you for being the loving, caring, healing, omnipotent, all powerful, all knowing, and just GOD that you are. You are .
Hi, My name is Lars and I would like to tell you how God miraculously healed my friend Rebecca from a whole list of diseases, including deafness, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, tinnitus, and rhinitis.
Rebecca went to school with Claudia and Billy, who had been Christians for a long time in our Assembly. Shortly after getting to know them Rebecca’s parents told her to not get involved with them, because they thought that they were part of a cult, which didn’t stop Rebecca though and a good friendship developed between them. Over the years they lost touch though, as Rebecca had moved to Dunfermline by the time she was 19, in order to study.
At that time she was deaf in her right ear: She suffered from congenital sensory neural hearing loss. The doctors had discovered it when she was 4 years old, and by the time she was in her teens she had to start wearing a hearing aid. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when she was 14, although she had suffered from it as well as many other health conditions for some time before. Some of these include: chronic fatigue syndrome, TMJD (jaw joint pain), epicondylitis (tennis elbow), patellofemoral syndrome (housemaid’s knee), irritable bowel syndrome, tinnitus, and rhinitis.
Until Rebecca was 19 she had managed to live with her health the way it was. It was always a struggle but somehow she still managed to go to school, go to work, and have a social life. But then, not long after moving to Dunfermline she became really sick. The pain became so severe, and the tiredness so overwhelming that she could hardly get out of bed. Soon it became impossible for her to live a normal life. The pain and tiredness became so debilitating that her studies suffered and she struggled to cope with her part time job. On top of this she had developed glossopharyngeal neuralgia, which is when an artery and a nerve lean on one another at the back of the brain; this caused such excruciating pain, it was as if being stabbed directly through the left ear into the head. There were occasional good days when she could go out for a small walk, however most of the time she was bed-ridden.
If you have suffered with any of these health conditions or similar ones you will understand the extreme pain and discomfort she was in. In order to cope with the pain she went to hospital for steroid injections and was also taking many different types of strong painkillers and sedatives including tramadol (morphine based) and diazepam. Additionally, she was also taking strong anti-inflammatory drugs such as arthrotec, which gave her stomach ulcers. With regards to the glossopharyngeal neuralgia, the doctors wanted to operate: opening up her skull and putting a tiny piece of cushion in between the artery and nerve in her brain. This was to try and eliminate the pain altogether, and there was an 80% chance that the operation would be a success.
...she felt trapped and being cut off from the world...
By this stage she had lost all her ambitions, felt trapped and being cut off from the world: She did not have a social life anymore, had to give up her studies and her part time job, too. The doctors said she would never get better and she went and saw a psychologist because of the depression and desperation she was in. Her daily thoughts consisted of “How can this be?” “What did I do to deserve this?” and “Is there any point anymore?”
When she was at her lowest she was plagued with permanent thoughts of suicide. She had to move back in at her parents’ place, as she could no longer live by herself anymore. That’s when she started crying out to God and wanted to get in touch with her friend Claudia again. A couple of weeks after being back at her parents place she bumped into Claudia, who then eventually invited her for to come along to a church meeting. This was where I met Rebecca for the first time. Rebecca told us how much at home she felt with us and due to her sickness it was another few weeks before she could come again. During this meeting we talked about the power of God and that God wants people to be healthy and expects his followers to pray for the sick. We read many scriptures like MARK 16:15-20, ISAIAH 53:5, MATTHEW 4:23, and HEBREWS 13:8 and explained them.
Many people received prayer in that meeting and Rebecca asked for prayer for her glossopharyngeal neuralgia she suffered from. We laid hands on her and prayed in Jesus’ name (MARK 16:18). She was initially still in pain, as if somebody stabbed through her ear, but the moment she stepped outside as she left the meeting the pain completely went; for the first time in 3.5 years and to this day the pain has never come back. She realised that God is real and came back the following week, despite her parents threatening her to chuck her out if she went again. We happened to have a prayer night that Friday and led Rebecca through the Scriptures about how to be saved. We looked at Scriptures concerning baptism by immersion and Rebecca then asked to be baptized, which we did straight away in the upstairs bathtub . Afterwards we looked at some Scriptures about receiving the Holy Spirit (ACTS 2:4, LUKE 11:13), and we then laid hands on her and asked God to fill her with the Holy Spirit. As a result she then started to speak in new tongues and was born again.
...she almost jumped up because it was so loud...
We then laid hands on her again and asked God to heal her completely, from the whole list of health problems she suffered with, including the deafness in her right ear and God healed her immediately, from everything! Straight after I talked into her right ear she almost jumped up because it was so loud. The whole right side of her world had become alive with sound! She was no longer deaf and got rid of her hearing aid. The fibromyalgia had gone as well and all the pain she had suffered for years had just disappeared. She said she just felt like running, as she was so full of energy. To top it all off that night, for the first time in a long time she managed to sleep.
Love in Christ,
Hi, My name is Lars and I would like to tell you how God miraculously healed my friend Rebecca from a whole list of diseases, including deafness, fibromyalgia.
