John and Doves,

We are lifting these prayer needs to the Lord and we ask all the Doves to also pray for my wife who has an infirmity and asks for your prayers for a healing. Thank you, Jim G

Shelva http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/shelvas72.htm
Shelva, may the Lord heal and open your ears and bring good hearing to both of them. May God bind whatever and whoever ( the adversary ) from stopping them up and causing a blockage. Usually it is mucus and it will pass in time.
I had a friend who also had this problem and it continued for months, but finally went away.
Perhaps sleeping on the side of the good ear will help to drain the 'bad' ear of mucus-causing blockage. Or maybe an extra pillow at night may cause the drainage to flow downward. Just some suggestions.
We are also praying that you be healed of diabetes. "Is anything too hard for the Lord ?" Genesis 18.

God's word tells us that He can open doors that nothing can close. We pray that those words be applied to your situation.
It does pass, it takes time, and yes it drives a person nuts. May the Lord bless you in your patience.
These last days remind me of the phrase: "These are the times that try men's souls."
We are praying for you that the Lord does a QUICK work.

Joe M http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/joem72.htm
Joe, we are praying for your daughter repents of her rebellion, and we pray that she will be convicted in heart to seek God's help to change her attitude and behavior. I pray your wife can step over the rebellion and go about her concerns, trying hard not to react. ( That is difficult ). We can respond to our problems rather than react.

To react is to take immediate offense and retaliate with words.
To respond is to walk away, cool down through prayer and busy-ness, and seek a wholesome remedy for the situation. The more your wife and daughter can avoid each other, the more the situation may diffuse.
Obviously, since this is a summer thing, LaToya reacts to heat and humidity ( sometime too much light ). Having lots of liquids and sleep helps a person to achieve balance.

If your daughter gets a job or volunteers at a hospital, rest home or whatever, she will then be too busy to argue anymore. She will also get a different perspective on life. Helping others helps ourselves.
And if your wife overlooks a lot, she will have peace. We are praying for all of you.

Father, please bind the strongman over the daughter and the mother, and cover them both under the Blood of Jesus Christ. Please bring to Joe's home a peace that surpasses all understanding. Thank you, Amen.

Lynn http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/lynn72.htm
Although we could not get the link to work, we know that the Lord knows who you are referring to, so we asked God to intervene in whatever way was necessary and to supply His abundant grace and mercy. Thank you for letting us know.

Dave G http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/daveg72.htm
When you pray each morning and evening to have the forces of evil bound over you, sometimes it helps to name the ranks of the demonic forces, such as: the evil powers, principalities, mites, thrones and dominions and all spiritual wickedness in high places and the rulers of the darkness of this world from coming against you. And we add that God bind the strongman ( demon) over us and cover us under the protecting and healing Blood of Jesus Christ.
We read Psalm 91 to confirm our trust to His care. We pray that God will meet all of your needs.

Shirley, Julie and Barbara J
We continue to keep you in prayer to find permanent housing. May it be soon. Please be encouraged that many Doves are keeping you in prayer . May the Lord come for all of us SOON ! Maranatha.

Psalm 34: 18 " The LORD is near unto them that are of a broken heart. "
