    Good morning sweet sisters! I am praying over each of your needs every day! I want to mention a few specific people since I know how much it means to me to see my name mentioned.

    NANCY S— praying for your strength. I certainly feel your pain,

    KATIE L—praying a hedge of protection over your son (and your mom) as they have these visits with the ex MIL,

    RHONDA J—praying for Brayden and his little sister and that whole family. May God change hearts and intervene in everything about this situation. Also praying for your healing from the chronic pain.

    MICHELLE PATIRE—praying for wisdom and discernment for you as you seek God’s will about moving.

    SEARCHING, MERCY, GRAMIESUE, SHARON JERSEY GIRL, FOSTER MAMA, VICTORIA E, AIMEE ROGERS and many others—I am praying for your needs and requests. Would love to see updates on your requests,

    I’m praying for all your loved ones who do not know the Lord.

    Please continue to pray for Jack and I. It’s really hard these days.

    Love you all (or y’all as we say in Alabama )!

    @MICHELLE: I will pray for that girl that God’s hand be a guard and a guide. To correct what I was saying, which I was wrong and I felt corrected by His Holy Spirit, and I need to come back to clarify lol. I must. My apologies. The Lord indeed allows certain trials, deception and pain/abuse to happen to His Bride, which was meant to crush us, but He turns it around for our training and growing purposes. What is meant to kill us, ends up being a scar only. But He allows. That’s why pain and deception exists in churches for the toughening and perfecting of His people. BUT also… in Ezekiel 34, God says He will judge His flocks and the Shepherds that abuse others. I usually pray Ezekiel 34 over the churches and those suffer injustice in churches. May the damage be controlled so no more grief is sowed. Bless you Michelle! Enjoy your weekend.❤️

    Thank you so much @Mercy. I am sorry to know you’ve gone through this as well. It is a very painful experience. Thank you for the reminder about unforgiveness. That’s a real one. I think I am more angry at myself for being deceived, because I should have known better. But hopefully, like you, the Lord will also use this to build my discernment. I let this person too close as well, when she really needed discipleship. I don’t think she realized the damage she did, she honestly meant well. She just needs some help. So I do think I can forgive her knowing her heart wasn’t to harm. Thank you for praying those Scriptures over me and encouraging me!!

    God bless all you ladies. Enjoy your Sunday :)

  4. Mercy says:

    Happy Saturday dear she’s.
    It’s lovely and warm today with birds singing. It is such music to my ears. Praise the Lord for the day He has made that we may rejoice and worship Him.

    @CHERYL BLOW: amen to what you said. Without Him, where would I be?
    @MICHELLE P: I am so sorry to hear what has happened. That has happened to me as well because I over trusted. BUT GOD has given me that lesson to increase discernment. Not everyone who claims they are Christian/pastors/prophets are true. I pray that God will bring healing to your heart over any damage or frustration this person might have given you. And especially may He help you with forgiveness over any bitterness that can cause a wound. Satan usually brings evil/counterfeit people to cause us hurt so the snake and its venom can enter through UNFORGIVENESS. It’s a sneaky door. I am praying this verse over you, “May He give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed (Psalm 20:4)”. He sees your heart’s unspoken desires, and even if you never ask Him to fulfil them, may He bless you anyways because of your faithfulness. And to any counterfeits who come to you and pretend to be your “friend”, but indeed trying to distract or delay you from God’s will, may the Lord judge them & avenge speedily according to His righteousness, may the Lord scatter them immediately, praying Psalm 35 over you. The Lord will not allow anyone to come and abuse His Bride.
    @SEARCHING: praying for your friend’s mom’s heart issue and a safe pacemaker procedure. May total healing & restoration come in Jesus’ Name. Also for the salesman Matt to be drawn to the Lord and be saved. You have such a golden intercessor heart for people –which is so precious in God’s sight.
    @ERB: thank you for the ewe lamb story you shared yesterday (which I am catching up). That really resonates with me.
    @FOSTER MAMA: praying for your babies that are & will be under your care. Quality and meaningful time for lasting family connections.
    @SARAH D: praying for your last week to go well, and secure steps ahead.
    @MARIA BAER: praise God for the victory.
    @RHONDA: thinking of you and Brayden and his family. Prayers sent on your behalf!
    Be blessed dear sisters.

  8. Kimberly Z says:

    @Sarah D. Been thinking of you and I’m so glad to hear about your new adventure! Praying for you during your last week. No matter how trying it was at times it’s always hard to walk away from a place that made you strong. Praying for all of you this week!

  9. Cee Gee says:

    I love the New Living Translation on these verses:

    54 He has helped his servant Israel and remembered to be merciful.

    55 For he made this promise to our ancestors,to Abraham and his children forever.

    As you said, KELLY NEO, we were counted in those stars; Praise God!!!


    MARIA BAER – PTL!! Thanks for letting us know!

    MICHELLE PATIRE – Echoing our sisters praises and wise words for you. Continued prayers for your family situation.

    SARAH D – Savor the last week. I will be praying for you as you prepare for the upcoming school year. I think of you each time I pass a Christian school on the way to town because they have a sign out front: now hiring 5K, etc.!

    Keeping all of you in my prayers!

  10. Sharon Jersey Girl says:

    Praising God for His mercy that is new every morning! (Lamentations 3:22-23) “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love” (Psalm 103:8) Thank you God! Father God please help me to be merciful as you are, to show mercy where mercy is due. In Jesus name.

    @Maria Baer – praise the Lord for a good report!
    @Sarah D – praying for you as you begin your new job!

    Happy Saturday – continuing to pray for you all!

  11. Sarah D. says:

    Good morning ladies! Hope you all had a good week, praying for you all.
    Next week is my last week at my current job. It is slightly bittersweet, but I am excited for what is next. I have grown a lot and am ready to move forward. Praying the Lord would prepare me and guide me in the next steps!

  12. Jeanie Mclellan says:


  13. Maria Baer says:

    Thank you for the prayers!

  14. Maria Baer says:

    Thank you God that through your son, Jesus, we are now part of the family of Christ.

  15. Maria Baer says:

    Good morning everyone! I so loved this study and really gave me an appetite to dig deeper into the Old Testament. Also, I wanted to thank those who prayed for my follow up to the mammogram. I had ALL the tests yesterday, and while they found two little masses (each the size of a pin head) they are benign. Thank you Jesus. I just cannot believe the peace I have had since the mammogram and this whole past week with the waiting. Thank you all for the prayers so much!

  16. Searching says:

    What a study, what a Savior! Am I the only one who cringed a wee bit when I saw the word “genealogy” in the title of this study, thinking it might be boring, possibly just one begot after another? Yeah, not my smartest or most faithful thinking. Thank you, SRT. And a huge thank you to each sister for your comments, insights and prayers that brought so much to the study table over the past 5 weeks.

    MICHELLE PATIRE – I have been praying for discernment and wisdom since you shared with us that there may be upcoming changes in your life, and Praise the Lord for His rescue of you, your thoughts and actions. You have been covered in prayer by your sisters here while you were wrestling with what you were told, seeking truth as we are instructed in 1 John 4:1 and James 1:5. Love you, sister. ❤️

    CEE GEE – thank you for your prayers, and love that song! ❤️

    KRISTIN – such truth in your comment, “is there anything that should mean more” (than God’s promises and gift of salvation)?

    ERB – thank you for sharing about the bummer lambs! Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who was himself rejected by the world, is Shepherd and Savior to all who believe. And thank you for bringing to our attention that if it doesn’t align with God, it isn’t from God.

    SHARON JERSEY GIRL – Amen, inclusion of the Gentiles ❤️

  17. Michelle Patire says:

    Thank you so much for the prayers!!! <3

  18. Kelly (NEO) says:

    Thank You, Lord that I was represented by one of those stars in the sky that You had Abraham look up to see how many descendants You promised he would have.

  20. Theresa says:

    I’m so thankful that God remembers his mercy! He withholds the judgement we deserve and instead extends grace to cover our sins.
