f there is nothing that I believe in more, it is the power of prayer.
Prayer changes things, it changes minds, and most of all it is our power to overcome those mountains that seem too tall to climb and too strong to breakdown.
Your need is very important to me.

You don't even have to use a real name or any real information for me to pray for you.
I don't need to know all of your business or the whole situation. But if you need prayer, fill it out and allow me to agree with you. However your information is encouraged as I like to claim your victory by name. Your privacy is protected here.
If you want to purge that is fine as well. However, you cannot purge to me and not purge to God.
You cannot purge to me and not repent to those who you have wronged and expect all to be forgiven.
This is just a help, a first step.
God put me here as a servant. Use me.
