Pray for Bear. He believes that God is done with him and he is now done with God. Both his wife and son died a number of years ago. He is a Messianic Jew and has been rejected by the synagogue because of his belief in Jesus. He used to be a pastor of a church until he found a 14yr boy hanging from a rafter in the church. He is now dying of cancer and was told 2 months ago that he only has 3 months to live. He figures he is going to hell because he has turned from God. Pray that the Holy Spirit will soften his heart and restore his faith. He carries much anger. He states that he is now waiting to die.   Please pray for our Thanksgiving dinner this week, that many people from the streets would come and be awakened to the goodness of God and salvation through him

 Prayer Requests 11.07.08

Please pray for Fabian, who is off the streets and doing well in a home. Pray that he stays there and that God would be working in him! Please also pray for “Alex”, who has been wanting to get off of the streets for a while. He wants to move to Oakland

and start over, which would probably be good for him. Pray that he could find a way to do that and that he could find a job there so he doesn’t have to prostitute anymore. My prayer is that we meet someone that (has been coming around for sometime or new out there) is ready to receive Christ and wants nothing else but Him to change their life. Star –  she was beaten up pretty badly which is why we haven’t seen her in a while. She said she was going to school and trying to focus on that more which is really good. But she said she’ll be out on the streets on Friday and Saturday nights still. So just keep her in prayer maybe she needs to realize that God is trying to tell her to get off the streets. First, please pray that the Lord would bless the Friday night branch of Broken Hearts with a vision and place in the community.  Second, pray for the Lord to soften the hearts of the LAPD Wilcox precinct and the shop managers of the 7/11 strip mall.   Hoagies and Wings put the kabash on our (Friday nights) BBQ’s, so we want to get permission to BBQ in the 7/11 parking lot.  Third, pray that the Lord bless us with more divine appointments to establish relationships to sow His seeds through.    Last but not least, please pray for me, Nick Harmon, as I prepare to go visit my mother.  Many years ago my mother deliberately walked away from sound scriptural teachings and the safety that Church living provides Christ’s body.  The tide of this world has swept her away into depression, poverty, and a blindness to things of the Lord and she is in a bad way physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Please pray that she does not attempt to take her own life and the life of my sister.  Also, pray that I would be a faithful vessel of God’s love and compassion while visiting with her and my sister.

Please pray for our team, for those who are dealing with health issues, school, and general busyness in their lives that can be a distraction from keeping God first and having peace.

He wants to feel safe and have peace. And for Justin, who has been prostituting for a few years and doesn’t have a steady place to live. He wants to find a real job incredibly bad, but doesn’t really know how or hasn’t heard back from the places he’s applied to. He is transgender and doesn’t know if his sexual sin is keeping God from blessing him. He knows and believes in God, and may be starting to realize that lifestyle can separate him from God, even though God will always love him.

Pray that he can find the words to minister to his friends “who are wrong in what they do”.JL – Pray that he will be out next Thursday and that we can continue our discussion with him. Yesterday he started crying and saying that he does not like what he is doing, he does not want to be a transgender anymore, and does not know what to do. Pray that the Lord will bring him
back to us so we can continue to minister to him and show him the hope and
love of a new life in Christ Jesus.

Pray for Little Devil, who is there every week. And for “Maury”, who is recently homeless. He sleeps in his car and wants God to provide for him a place to live.

He also feels like God has given him many gifts (which is really evident if you meet him) and he needs direction with the calling on his life. “Michelle”: a transgender prostitute and former drug addict who we saw a lot last year and just saw again this week.
