GROW Ministry is a ministry of Sterling Wood Church that partners with the Houston Sheriff’s Department Homeless Outreach Team (HOT).

Please pray that my daughter Melinda Lytle would be completely healed from multiple myeloma and any form of blood cancer. And she would be born-again and filled with the Holy Spirit!

I have been going through major trials & transitions in my life. I'm trying to find a sense of divine peace within my heart. I'm looking for work, healing from a misguided relationship with therapy & hoping to soon have an apartment to call my own in the future. Everyday, I've been striving for mental and emotional clarity as I try to grow closer to God. After experiencing spiritual warfare and having nightmares it makes me feel isolated, confused & misunderstood. Still, I try to pray for deliverance and protection. With a family history of miscommunication (or lack there of), once strong bonds have been weakened with silence, feelings of anger & resentment towards others. Please pray for the healing of myself, and my family members so we no longer look towards each other in anger in times of trouble & instead with sympathy, love, understanding & acceptance. I know there are better days ahead & I want to keep the faith for the wonderful life God has set out for me.

Please pray the following for you, Jung-won, Ui-seop, Ha-young, Ye-young, Eun-tae, In-sook: While our bodies are alive, let us receive the words that proceed out of the mouth of the one true God; let us store His commands inside us and keep them until the end of time. Please send out the angels from God Himself and take away all the wicked who deceive us. Allow us to see for ourselves what all of this has accomplished. “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” ‭‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭20‬ ‭

Please pray for physical and emotional healing and restoration and for the mind of Christ. Pray for the freedom, faith, love and healing God wants for me this day in Jesus name.

Please pray Jesus Christ would carry out the following for Jung-won, Ui-seop, Ha-young, Ye-young, Eun-tae, In-sook: 1. Give all of us the kingdom of God and God's righteousness that you promised and make it happen. 2. Let the Son of God fulfill the Father God's will to us to the end, and let us see this and appreciate it when all our bodies are alive. 3. Do not allow us to do what we want or seek, but do for us what the Son of God wants to do, and only let it go well. 4. Lord Jesus, please send forth plenty of workers for the harvest that you talked about(Matthew‬ ‭13‬:‭39‬) and command that your intended harvest be accomplished among us.
