Marty’s Prayer Line for Yesterday Today and Tomorrow


If you have a prayer or a thought that you want to mention here or send to someone who you believe is deserving please use my column to reach special people who would go out of their way to say a special prayer on your behalf for that someone you care about – Marty Martel

WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for yesterday, today and tomorrow by Marty Martel

Please prayer for the missing airplane with over 200 people aboard that they will be found and hopefully by some miracle of our Blessed Lord be alright.  Prayers work and always give an answer.   It is not always what we want to hear, but there will be an answer. 

Prayers also are needed for the people of Russia that they find better ways to work out their problems than by having a leader who it seems has not religious beliefs, only the belief of ruling all parts of the world in Europe.  The days of Russia being a world leader are a threat to our world as they try to dominate seems to be on hand, so prayers are vital that we ask the Lord to guide the leaders of Russia in a peaceful direction with the rest of our world.

Prayers for Randy Travis that he will fully recover from his stroke and once again we can hear his great voice on radio with new songs that he will record. 

Prayers for Mel Tillis’s complete recovery from his heart surgery.


Prayer for Personal Conduct

Lord God, I pray that this day my conduct will be like that you have set for your clergy:

Above reproach. May I be this day temperate, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

Not given to drunkenness, and not violent, but gentle. May I never be quarrelsome,

Always seeking peace even in disagreement, and may my love be for you and my fellow man, not for money.

I pray that I manage my own household well. If I have any children in my charge,

I pray to that I may take the time to see that they are in control and behaving with proper respect.

Grant me a good reputation with outsiders, so that I will not fall into disgrace

And the snare of the devil. This I pray through my Lord Christ, whose love and attention

Ever gave us an example of conduct.


 If you have anyone you would like to send a prayer out to please mail them to

for inclusion in to WHISNews21 weekly prayer line initiated by Marty Martel

in the interest of goodwill to all in need of a little help by the way of a prayer

Be Inspired By Rhon This Tuesday Morning

Rhon 2014


Praise will get you victoriously through this day. When you worship Me, you connect with Me in a powerful way that transcends time and circumstances. I live in your praises, and you live and move and have your being in Me. Praising Me draws you into the depths of My Presence, where you can glimpse My Power and Glory.

Depression, fear, and self-pity vanish when you engage in heartfelt worship. The evil one and his demonic followers flee from these glorious strains. So it is wise to praise Me. However, the most important reason for worship is that I am worthy to receive honor and glory and praise! The Bible is full of commands to give Me praise.

No matter how dark and difficult your day may seem, the Light of My Presence will shine through the darkness as you worship Me. This glorifies Me and enables you to live above your circumstances-victoriously!

Thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. -Psalm 22:3 kjv

In Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring. -Acts 17:28 nkjv

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! -Revelation 5:11-12
