Alrighty Otakus, your challenge this month is to serve others: your family, friends, church, and community. When was the last time you went out of your way to serve someone else? Whether its cleaning the house to surprise your parent or going out into the community to weed gardens, everything counts.
Weekly do a small task or favor for someone that will brighten their day.
Find a way to serve in each of the following areas: family, friends, church, and community
Get involved. Join church volunteers or invest in serving a specific person/group in need.

Prayer Request from ~EthanAlways
My parents are now divorced over then past year, going on two, and its really just taken a huge toll on this family...like literally torn it apart. Sometimes I find myself battling the enemy in oppression and doubt, and these spiritual attacks have been becoming stronger and stronger in time. I really just need a prayer in faith and strength that I can be the man I know God wants me to be, and let these seeds of oppression die where they started. Thank you, all. I really appreciate it. I've been in spiritual battle for so long, I get scared of what will happen when I feel weary.

I just recently learned that my friend's younger sister and another girl, friend of the younger sister, were involved in a serious car accident. Both girls are in critical condition. Please pray for them! It's in God's hands. I just pray for peace and comfort for those affected!

Pray for me to find a job so that I can earn the money to help pay for my France trip next summer.

There's a dear friend of mine that I love like a sibling who's mother has been having some problems with cancer. I'm not quite sure what it is, but it sounds bad. Recently it seems like she's been getting better. My friend herself also tends to get into a lot of scrapes. Heavens know why. I've been praying for her physical safety all the time and she still comes to me with a cut on her face or some accident.
Please pray for my mom. She's feeling really frustrated with work--and me. She talks all the time about being stressed and stuff. I feel like she sometimes loses sight of what's really important in life, even though I'm not really one to judge. Please pray for her to talk to God, or pray for her in general.
Lastly, could someone pray for me? I'm going through kind of a tough time myself. I've been getting some awful grades, not enough sleep, and I've been feeling empty and alone in my thoughts. I'm really stressed.
S-sorry for posting a really long rant, but if someone would take notice and say a few thanks I would be really grateful.

Please pray for `TouchedVenus's husband's cousin Brandon. He had an aneurysm explode in his brain and a stroke. His brain's been severely damaged and he's got a 50% chance of surviving. He's been through the first surgery now. Bleeding is stopped but there is still lots of blood on the brain. They are using ice to slow brain function.
update: his chances were reduced yesterday with the location being in the inner part of the brain that they can't get to and swelling being a major concern. Don't know all specifics but they can't drain off the blood and they don't want to open his skull to relieve the pressure (not fully ruptured but may if they proceed that way?) which leaves the opening to the spinal column as a release if it gets to that point. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
another update. He's doing better and now they're just waiting for him to wake to see what, if any, damage has been done

Please pray for my uncle Brad. He was in a terrible accident and his arm was horribly mangled. Through the grace of God he's going to be able to keep his arm, but its going to be years of surgery, physical therapy, and trials to get motion back. He himself is a surgeon and father of six who now cant work. He's extremely depressed from this whole ordeal. Please pray for him and his family.
