(08/17/2000) becoming a guarantor
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: becoming a guarantor
1 My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou
hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,
2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou
art taken with the words of thy mouth.
3 Do this now, my son, & deliver thyself, when thou
art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble
thyself, & make sure thy friend.
4 Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine
5 Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the
hunter, & as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
We have been talking about enduring prosperity. One of
the things that the Bible warns us about is becoming a
co-signatory or a guarantor for someone. I have a
personal friend who became a guarantor and then got
himself into serious debt when his relative defaulted
Do not become a guarantor unless you are prepared to
pay and have the resources to do so. If you don't have
the finances, you are actually pledging your future
earnings and your possessions to someone else.
Having enduring prosperity also means being wise in
the decisions that we make have to make throughout our
2. New prayer requests:
i. salvation for my brother & his family -- guest
My brother & his girlfriend has been together for over
ten years. Since then they had two sons. For the last
two years the relationship have been very rocky & not
to mention financial problems. They know they must
accept Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior. Also to
end their fornication relationship immediately. To
heal all past hurts. They also need a church home to
start attending. Pray that the Lord will lead a
Christian Counselor or Minister guided by the Holy
Spirit for pre-marital counseling. God's will be done
in their lives.
ii. that God will bring my wife back home -- tomha68
My wife has told me she does not love me any more
after 7 years of marriage. She refuses to go to
marriage counciling. I firmly believe that satan has
his grip on her & he is not allowing her to see things
as they are. We have two beautiful children & they
need to be together & they are now split apart because
of this. Please pray that she will at least agree to
go to marriage counciling.
iii. Cancer -- gp54
Please pray for my mom (Peggy) who has just learned
she has lung cancer. She will be going on two
different dates for surgery.
iv. to be immigrants to Canada -- eilynor
Please help us pray to our Lord Jesus to touch the
hearts of those who are evaluating/assessing our
application to become immigrants to Canada; we will be
granted visas in HIS time, with interview no longer be
required. Please pray also that the Australian will
not lose interest to buy our property in the
Philippines; if it our Lord's will, it will be sold to
the right person at the right price to make our goal
to make it to Canada, a REALITY.
v. Urgent Prayers for Pam's father -- godprayser
I have a special prayer request. It's from a dear
friend of mine, Pam. I think I should send this prayer
request to everyone of you since prayer is power & we
should always pray for one another. Pam's dad had just
been admitted to the hospital for an eye operation.
One side of his eye is already blind due to age & he's
a diabetic. I'm not exactly sure what is the medical
term for his condition but I know that the retina of
his eye has been detached from the inside. The doctor
can't operate on it cause he has gone thru many
operations before, so the one he's going to go through
will just help him maintain his current visibility
which is only 50% of the whole eye. This operation has
only a 50-50 chance of succeeding. We really need a
miracle here. Let's ask God to give the doctors
knowledge & wisdom & strength, to commit the entire
operation to God's hands. Ask God to comfort the whole
family, especially her dad, throughout the entire
procedure. Thanks for praying together with me, every
little prayer is well appreciated.
3. Prayer updates:
i. Prayer request update -- iamajfreak
I asked all of you to pray for my uncle & also my
cousin. I thank you for all of your prayers. My uncle
is fine, the heart attack wasn't too severe & my
cousin's surgery went well. She will be out of school
for a while but is fine. My uncle has recovered well.
I once again thank you for all of your prayers. God
Bless You all.
