"And David was greatly distressed; for
the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all
the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for
his daughters: but
David encouraged himself in the
LORD his God."
~1 Samuel 30:6~
encourage one another and
build each other up."
~ I Thessalonians 5:11~
Do you need someone to talk to?
Do you need just a friendly word of encouragement?
Then you have come to the right place!!!!!!!
Don't be afraid to reach out
to others. God has often used Email
Encouragers whom I have never met to BLESS me in many
ways and comfort
me too. Sometimes I think "Who but the Lord?"
could have known that I
needed to read a scripture or word of encouragement or
me right at that moment.
you have prayer requests? Note:
If you have a prayer request please send it to Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org Please put EE's
in the subject line. Then it will be sent out to the EE's
in a Daily Prayer Mailing. The EE's
are a large group of Christian men and women who be happy
to pray for you.
What is an EE? An
EE is an Email Encourager. An EE is a Christian who feels led and
called of the Lord to have
an Internet Ministry and use the "Gift of
Encouragement" that the Lord has given them to
minister to others by prayer, a Scripture Verse or a kind
Who can submit a Prayer
one who has a prayer request may submit it to the EE's.
The EE's would be glad to pray
for your prayer request. We have a Prayer Mailing that
goes out to a large group of Christians
once a day. We have some EE's that don't have families
and can pray on the weekends
for you. All requests will then go to Vikki & Peter.
Just Lisa email@example.com
with "prayer request" or "EE's" in
the subject line.
How many EE's are there? We
now have almost 70 men and women email encouragers!
Prayer and the Email
. . The earnest (heart-felt, continued) prayer of a
righteous man makes
tremendous power available - dynamic in its
working." James 5:16
IMPORTANT!! About financial prayer
requests: If you are submitting
prayer requests about "financial
difficulties" we have decided that we will just
share them as an "Unspoken Prayer Request".
We do not want people to feel that they need to send
money and gifts to others on the
Internet or in the EE's. I will not support "fund
raising" for personal gain for or by any
of the EE's or in any prayer requests. Of course there
are GOOD Non Profit 501C3 Ministries
that I believe are reputable and in that case donations
are up to you. I do believe that the
Lord does supply all our needs. He does answer our
prayers. Sometimes the answer is NO,
sometimes YES and sometimes it is WAIT. We have to pray
and ASK the Lord about everyone
of our needs. He hears the prayers and will answer them
in ways that we can not even imagine.
Sometimes asking others to help you is really like taking
the control away from the Lord and
trying to "work out" your problems without Him.
Of course I am not saying that
you should not
take help that is offered. You should also contact
your local Church and other Ministries to
help you. The Salvation Army is just one example of
where help can be given to those in need.
Remember to submit "Your
PLEASE make the request
simple, short and
straight forward. It will be copied and
our mailing so make sure it is ready to go and
appropriate to be used. This goes to about 70 Christian's
and this will make it much easier for everyone. Most of
the EE's print
out the mailing and then pray for the requests.
PLEASE ~~ DO NOT Just forward
another group's prayer mailing. Unfortunately the EE's
as a group can't just take every "forward" and
include it in our daily prayer mailings.
Of course anyone is welcome to come and fill out the form
for themselves. We will be glad
to pray for you. If you happen to send a prayer request
for someone else PLEASE
verify that the information is accurate. Often on the
Internet we can't always
believe every request that comes in bulk mailings.
Please let us know the
you a Christian?

Prayer Request: Don't forget to share with
us your "Answer to Prayer" or "Praise
The Importance of Prayer by Debbie
(Debbie used to be our Prayer Mailing Coordinator)
Prayer is for our fellowship with God and part of our
personal relationship with Him. We know
as believers that prayer is not a "religious
duty" with no power behind it. Effective prayer
must be based on the Word of God. We know and are assured
that God's Word
does not return to Him void - useless:
is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not
return to me empty, but
will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for
which I sent it."
instructs us to call on Him and He tells us that He will
answer us. How exciting to know
that the Creator of the Universe hears us and responds!
to me and I will answer you and tell you great and
things you do not know." ~Jeremiah 33:3~
Gossip and sharing prayer
remember that as a Christian it is important to be
discerning. When someone shares a
prayer request with you they may NOT want you to share it
with others. If you want to share
it then PLEASE do not give their name. Say "a
friend" is dealing with something. This is
considered an unspoken prayer request. This way it still
keeps their anonymity and trust but
more people can be praying for them. My friend Leah has a
good page that explains the
difference between "gossip" and just
"sharing a prayer concern" about a friend.
Here is an example of one of the questions on her
"Can I share something I know about someone as a
You may share something as a prayer request only if you
have permission from the person
the request is about. If she does not wish for you to
share it with anyone, do not do it.
If you do, you are gossiping." Visit Leah's page
