Bruce - Dear Jesus, I come to You faithfully, I have been going through a fight with my flesh, that concerns me under minding my faith. As I said in the opening of my prayer request. What I mean is in my flesh still overrides it. Until I come to you, Lord Jesus. I am not being honest with my lady friend and my daughter’s mother. I have placed myself in a selfless position, and at times when I have sowed the situation and tell you all about it Jesus, my flesh goes in again. All because my daughter's mother says she knows I have a fiancé, but she still wants me to be a part of our daughter's life, but she took her away from me when she was three years old ran off and got married. But now that she's found me she's telling me how much she never stops loving me etc. I don't get fired up into it, but I don't push away either. So, by me releasing it to you Father God I am sure I will break be able to cut it completely off, by only having a father’s contact with my daughter only and tell her I cannot be any more than my daughter's father

Wesley - Pray for my friends and family to have healing from their medical needs. And for my mom to have her home repairs taken care of and for me to get a letter from a friend that just got my info to talk to about God and Jesus.
