Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God''''''''''''''''s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God -this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God''''''''''''''''s will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2 NIV

JoshuaJust started Water the Valley Ministries! For info or donations please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I thought I was over my drinking problem, but in the last month I have got drunk 4 or 5 times. I need to completely (and daily) submit myself to God and resist the devils temptations, so he will flee. Please join me and my family in prayer for my deliverance from this weak area in my mind.
During my recent fast, the Lord gave me direction for an outreach in my area. Yesturday, my brother and I went out into the most harsh "across the tracks" parts of the Antelope Valley and distributed bottles of water with bible tracts and a prayer number attached to them. We spoke with drug dealers, users, the homeless, and a number of the "harder" crowds. We went out, as His hands and feet, and spread the good news. I know the Lord spoke to me and has given me a vision for what He has planned for my life and for this valley. For the first time, I was not hesitant in obeying and "stepping out of the boat". The Lord is great! We handed out 58 bottles of water, bible tracts, and contact number for prayer that day. We started to see the fruit less then 4 hours later when we received our first call for prayer! I am believing that this ministry will continue to grow as the Lord provides! There is alot of soil out there and we look forward to more trips! We plan on doing one per week for now, but with the help of donations, we will be able to do more. Thanks for all of your prayers! Our next trip will be this Thursday!God Bless!
Please pray that I will completly submit my life to the Lords will. I pray that I will live step by step, side by side with the Holy Spirit. I have spent most of my first 28 years living for myself. I am committed to spending the rest of my life as a servant for Christ. I have a few bad habits that He is helping me to overcome but, I still stumble alot. I have been having a hard time letting Him be a part of every area of my life. This is were I need the prayer. I need to fully surrender my life to Jesus. Thank you so much!
Praise be to God! In the last two weeks we have all found employment! My wife was hired at our local gas station....less than 1/8th a mile away and my brother and I were both hired for a call center as at home agents! God is great! Lets never forget that He knows what we need a heck of a lot more than we do! Thanks for all of your prayers!
Original Prayer Request (posted 2 Years Ago): Please pray that either myself, my wife, or my brother find employment in the near future. We all just recently moved to New England and desperately need a second income. We are trusting in Gods providence in this situation. We have applied for over 20 jobs between the three of us.....just waiting for that call back!! Thank you to everyone and God bless!!
Thanks to all of you for all of your prayers and thanks to our loving God! After I posted the prayer request, my sons motivation to stop wetting at night increased dramatically. The last few weeks, he has wet maybe every other night or less. This is a wonderful improvement compared to several times every night. Thanks again so much for you prayers! We love you all!
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): I am asking if a few of you guys could join me in prayer for my 10 year old son, Isaiah. Its a small problem really; he wets the bed at night. We have seen two dr.s about the issue and they said kids will usually grow out of it by twelve. The prob is we are currently living with my 75yr old grandma and she is a little more old fashioned, I guess, and doesnt believe the dr.s. It is causing problems within the house between her and my wife and I. We have tried many things to help limit his fluid intake before bed, but now the prob is my gma is wanting to go to more extreme mesures of not letting him drink fluids 5 hrs before bed. I think that is a little harsh since I would have a hard time not having anything to drink for that amount of time. I was sitting at my desk, upset over the recent argument, and the Lord put it on my heart to pray for him.....so here I am.Thank you so much,Joshua
Thank you so much for your prayers guys!!!! My wife and I have been cig free for almost three weeks! Not only that, but my brother quit as well! Praise God!!
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Please pray for my wife, carissa, and I today and the next 30 days. We are quitting smoking!! I know we can do it, I know we have victory through Christ! I pray that we keep our eyes focused on the Savior, not the addiction. I pray that we continue to show eachother, and others, lots of love through this process. Thank you so much!!
