I am currently having challenges with my boyfriend, Mark, who lives overseas. We are both in love with each other, but he is beginning to say he doesn't know how it can work with us being 4,000 miles apart. He's not ready for a live-in relationship, and he has a lot of other stress re: work, his ex, and his ill mother... I am asking that you please pray for clarity and assistance for us to communicate openly and honestly and for him to see all of the ways it could work, rather than not  and also for God to work on his heart and help remove his fear of being totally committed to us.  In addition, I am struggling with unemployment since May. I have been made one offer, however my heart and soul are not happy with this job and I feel it is not what I want to do. I don't know if I should just be grateful and accept the role and look for something else, or if I should stay true, say no, and hope/pray that the right job will come along. Thank you for your prayers and help!

Emergency Prayers Needed please:  My faith and trust has been shaken to the core for the first in 20+ years. A corrupt judge gave my ex full custody of our traumatized children, who he's abused for years,  causing a major break down. After months of daily prayers, I'm still unable to find any pro bono legal help and I've had no contact w my children. My children desperately need help/advocacy/protection and my prayers asking for even the smallest sign of help, hope...still unanswered. I'm now struggling with PTSD, my heart/spirit are broken and the pain is unbearable. I'm desperate for ongoing prayers for a miracle/divine intervention/the TRUTH to be known and an army of legal help to bring my children home. I'm begging for ongoing prayers to continue till the end of September (two court dates). I will update with any good news. Thank you so much.
