Pre-Rapture Prayer List #4 :: Compiled by Dick Ainsworth

As we finish our earthly lives in the church age, we must continue praying for those with both physical and spiritual needs. Blessed be those who follow this Rapture Ready (RR) website and spread its Good News to others, as His time for the rapture is quickly approaching. It is the time that we should all hustle in a united effort to expand His new eternal Kingdom.

This is the fourth Prayer List posting, and I urge you not to read and pray over these prayer requests once and then move on. I suggest to you to go back in RR’s archives and pray again over each list. I realize that nearly all of these prayers are for total strangers from all over the world; but remember that in less than a second after the rapture, nobody will be a stranger. You will instantly have more friends than you can imagine, and those friendships will grow stronger for all of eternity.

And won’t it be great to be in a group of people where there will never be any ill feelings, people you want to avoid, or that you disagree with? No arguments, disagreements or conflicts.

A good way to build a stronger prayer life is to print off Prayer Lists #1, #2 and #3 and continue with #4 and following lists; and at any time of day or night when you want to pray to the Lord, take out your printed copies and read/pray over them again. God has a very big memory, and all prayers are recorded by Our Lord and Savior.

Prayer Requests

Our opening prayer in this Pre-Rapture Prayer List #4 is for God’s lost and unsaved creation still on earth. His remnant church is urged to pray intensely for the Light of the Holy Spirit to shine brightly unto this world darkened by Satan. Whether it be evil government leadership; fake news media; the vile and corrupt entertainment industries; or the world’s “Christian” church system that won’t teach and preach the complete Gospel of Jesus Christ and His promises to all who will accept Him as their true Lord and Savior, please pray for them. This is Satan’s last ditch effort before the umpire shouts out “strike three. You’re out!”

Satan hates and fears prayer; so the more sincere prayers offered to God, the more defeats Satan will suffer. Time is short before the rapture; so after that and throughout the 7-year tribulation period, Satan will have nearly 100% control of earth and the left behind. God will give Satan free reign over earth, and he will attempt to keep the left-behind in spiritual darkness. Their only hope is our prayers now and the blessed works of the all-powerful omnipresent Holy Trinity of God.

Pray that the left-behind boxes by crazy uncles and others will be protected from the evil hands of Satan’s people, and find their way to the left-behind who can become millennial saints.

Also pray for antichrist’s gestapo that they come out of Satan’s darkness and into the bright light of God’s Word and promise. They too have been tricked, lied to and deceived by Satan just like Saul of Tarsus – who later had his Damascus road experience (Acts 9:1-9) and became the great Apostle Paul after once being a demon-controlled puppet of Satan (Acts 7:55-60, 8:1-3). Satan’s gestapo can also be converted if they avoid taking the 666 mark.

Many of the prayers on this list are by saintly members of Christ’s church for their individual family and friends. But there are millions of souls on this planet who don’t have anyone praying for them at all by name, so group prayer is urgently needed for their sake and future eternal destiny.

Don’t delay another second! Stop what you are doing now and pray. Then continue on with this prayer list. Thank you!


“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than give the sacrifice of fools: For they consider not that they do evil. Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God; for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth, therefore let thy words be few” (Ecclesiastes 5: 1-2).

“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen (Matthew 6: 5-13).

“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matthew 6: 14-15).


I was really moved by Debra’s story, and her prayer request (copy-pasted prayer is at the end of my email for clarification).

Since I’m a botanist and an amateur herbalist, I know that there are many herbal remedies, which can help even in bad case cancers.

I don’t think that the name Maria Treben is well-known in the US, but she was a famous Austrian herbalist and a Godly woman; she wrote a book called “Health from God’s Garden” which contains many herbal remedies for various illnesses. There are also countless testimonies from people that were healed by plants (which are, after all, God’s creation and a big gift to us for His glory).

The book can be found by clicking on this link.

I don’t want to give a false hope, but herbal teas cannot hurt, nor do they have nasty side effects. And they are for free!

If you think it would be appropriate, I would be glad to recommend herbs and write the recipes from the book. And if not, it’s okay; prayer is the greatest thing that I can give, because only the Lord is the master of miracles.

I wish you a wonderful day!

God bless,



I am writing with many thanks to those in this community who have prayed for myself and my family in the past few weeks. We wrote a few weeks back with a prayer request concerning my battle with breast cancer, our family’s struggles financially, and for a place to live.

In the time since we requested prayer here, God has graciously met a number of our needs. A PET scan result came back showing that the primary tumor and suspicious lymph nodes are taking up none of the isotope that is used with this sort of test. Doctors are stumped, as they assumed this cancer was highly active and would show so on the test. This does not mean I am cancer free, but it does mean that the cancer is greatly suppressed; and as one Doctor put it “possibly a dead tumor.”

I will still need surgery and treatment, but we are greatly encouraged and give God all the glory as all we have done to date to fight this cancer have been alternative treatments. The test also showed some slight inflammation in the lymph nodes of the lung area which is not believed to be cancer, but is of some concern to watch. I have an autoimmune condition that sometimes causes this. We are praying for a quick resolution of the inflammation and no further concerns that this could be cancer spread, which most of my doctors do not believe it is.

We have also been offered not one, but two places to stay. One from an amazing family on this very website who offered us a home while I heal. At the same time, our local Church offered us an on-site apartment to live in through August of next year so that I can be close to my doctors and hospitals while recovering from surgery and treatment. This is truly God in action to care for His children through His body, the Church. The blessings in our lives from this provision and the encouragement to my daughter’s faith have been nothing less than amazing.

We thank you all for your past prayers and ask for future prayers for my upcoming cancer surgery which will likely be around early to mid-September). We are also continuing to ask the Lord to provide our small business with lucrative work so that our bills can be reduced quickly and we can begin to pay off medical obligations. Prayers for our daughter to continue to grow in the Lord and to learn to trust Him through this time of hardship would also be appreciated.  Many, many heartfelt thanks to all who have lifted us up in prayer,



Anthony Hamm emails that he had another bad day and is both letting off steam plus requesting prayer. He is old and deaf, his wife is in the early stages of dementia, and they have no close friends. He is praying for help as the Social Security checks don’t cut it with their living expenses. He volunteers at the local food pantry and in the black communities. ‘Everyone calls me a rebel but I was saved a long time ago. Many of my brothers in the Lord are intimidated by me as my hearing is gone and I don’t sign (write). I don’t know why I’m telling you all of this? I just had a bad day.”

(Dick’s reply): Keep looking up, Anthony. Soon the trumpet will sound and you will not have any more bad days. You will have perfect hearing and you will have millions of new true friends. And you will have no need for a Social Security check. God provides everything.


Pray for God’s dominion here.

Please pray for the Holy Spirit of God to touch the hearts of Warren Allen and Bill Pruett to awaken them to the saving grace of Christ. Warren also believes that belief in the rapture is the Christian equivalent of Islamic Taliban, Isis, etc., and is nonsense and dangerous. Bill Pruett wants Christians to quit trying to cram their religion down his throat. Both of these poor lost souls need worldwide prayer.

Dear Sir,

We need to pray, period, for the President, the Prime Minister of Canada and all elected officials. God is using these individuals in His plan. If we write the government officials, God’s will will be done regardless of our human points of view.  Yes, the land shouldn’t be divided, but God is at work no matter the way things look!

In Christ,

Janet (from Toronto)


Anthony Hamm offers prayer and advice for both those left behind, and the believing Christians who pray for and attempt to prepare them for the 7-year tribulation period.

“Dear Left Behind. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Don’t fall into the paramilitary or guerrilla mindset. Try to survive but be ready to face death. Do not love your life unto death. Your war is a spiritual war. You only overcome by the blood of Jesus and the word of your testimony.

“Get saved immediately and accept His will. I’ll see you in the Kingdom. If you get left behind, I pray you will find my supplies. After the rapture, the world will be in utter chaos; so take advantage of this to move fast and supply yourself. You may only have a few weeks before martial law is declared. Choose the vital things like a good knife (a high carbon steel knife and not a hard to sharpen stainless steel knife); a Bible; machete or hatchet; first-aid kit; fire-making supplies; and means to get food. I spent a lot of my life outdoors and love my Air Force issued survival knife and kabar.

“Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me (23rd Psalm). I want everyone to know I serve Satan’s owner and master. If the Muslim god is so great, why do they lose all the wars they start? Look at how many times Israel has defeated them? Ezekiel 38 & 39 foretells their defeat along with Russia.


Sister Deevena is requesting prayer for the Light of the World ministry in India as they further spread God’s Word in the towns, villages, amongst the quarry people, their widows & orphans ministry, the kid’s camps, the ministry library, etc. They still endure much rejection, revolts and attacks from Hindu radicals. The persecution of Christians is increasing rapidly. Pray that God’s protective hand will cover and protect India’s Christians. May His Holy Spirit reach out to the lost Indian people who don’t know Jesus.

Deevena’s grandmother also needs prayer as she was recently admitted to the hospital’s ICU and had to receive blood transfusions.

For more information you can reach Sister Deevena or Pastor Param (her father) at


Pray for Israel and God’s chosen people for protection from Satan’s evil plans and efforts. Also pray that President Trump and his administration will remain strong in its defense of Israel and remain a strong ally (Psalm 122:6-9).


Hi Dick,

It’s been a while since I last wrote. I want to update you on events.

Rachel is doing really well; she is still working at the same place. She has been through a really rough patch with her employers; they just expected her to be able to run a department with no help at all. She constantly asked for help and they just didn’t deliver; and so one day she just had a breakdown. That got their attention! So I was praying constantly and asking the million-dollar question Why?

So, to cut a long story short, a new little tougher Rachel has emerged. She has now told management what needs to happen; and if it doesn’t, then she will walk away. She has them by the “cahoonas” so to speak as there is nobody else trained highly enough to do her job if she goes. I know God has allowed this to happen so that she can toughen up, and it’s all in His plan.

My friend Nicky White has recently had her surgery for the lung cancer. Doctors didn’t know if they could operate as it was very close to her windpipe. So she got the go-ahead and they decided to remove the whole lung, which was what she had been praying for.  She is hoping to go home on Monday; thats only 10 days since the operation. She is making exceptional progress.

She is so grateful to everyone who is praying for her; she has felt so uplifted and actually said that she knows the prayers are working.

With regards to my mom, she is praying and communicating with God; I’m just not sure if she has accepted Jesus yet. It’s a very touchy subject with her, so I have to take very tiny steps. But I will just keep following the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

Can I ask you a question?

There is a story in this country (UK) about a young boy of 14 yrs. who has been bullied at school and who just recently took his own life. I don’t think his family knows the Lord, but questions I have been asked are whether he will be in heaven with the Lord.  Suicide is a subject that I’m not very up on when it is to do with children!

I’m still praying for you and your family Dick. I hope that your health is still improving, and we will all continue to pray.

Speak soon,

Paula x

(Dick’s reply): All final judgments belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, so none of us earthlings know how for sure another person will be judged. Many of us are not up on the subject of suicide and just speculate with our limited earthly knowledge.

Points we can consider are that we don’t know what was in the young lad’s heart at the time of his death. Just because his family didn’t accept Christ doesn’t mean he as an individual didn’t.  If he was saved, all of his sins were forgiven at the cross. Satan is the one who caused him to take his own life, but if he belonged to Jesus, I would think he would be saved.

Next, we don’t know his mental health condition. At age 14 he would normally be considered past the age of reason; but was he born, for example, retarded or any other mental health condition?

I’m sure the Lord considers all of this, and more, when making his final judgment. Jesus is a loving God whose judgments are all righteous. But we must pray for the bullies that caused this act. If they bullied this young lad, they are surely bullying others. Pray that the Holy Spirit will lead them away from these satanic acts.


Hello Dick

I would like to update you on some very personal events which have taken place over the last couple of days.

My daughter Rachel has very recently lost a friend to what they think is suicide or an accidental overdose. Russell was severely depressed due to a long-term relationship split. He was taking a rare old cocktail of antidepressants.  However, lately he seemed to be feeling much better.  And to cut a long story short, he was found dead. Rachel and the rest of the group of friends were so devastated to say the least. Rachel’s friends have not come to Jesus yet; and so Rachel found herself feeling so guilty and distraught that she could have done more to lead this young man to Christ, and then was worried about him not going to heaven.

After she told me of this, I took myself off to my quiet place to pray. I asked Jesus if Russell was with Him. I always focus when praying on a picture I have of Jesus, and then got a very firm answer back, “He Is.”

Then off to the left, I saw a man who was smiling and waving. I was very aware of his hair color, quite long and wavy, and then his mouth; he had quite a big mouth which looked even bigger when he smiled. Then the vision was gone. I thanked the Lord for showing me this, but I had no idea who the man was.

I went downstairs and messaged Rachel and asked what Russell looked like. I have never even met him or seen a photograph of him.  She was out of signal, so didn’t get back to me quick enough. So I looked at her friend’s’ Facebook and went through his friends to find Russell. I didn’t know his second name, so I clicked on the first Russell I came to. Then I sat back in shock. There looking at me was the man that the Lord showed me: his hair, the color and the huge smile. I just burst into tears, so filled with the Holy Spirit and just sobbed for a while.

I thanked the Lord like never before and have never felt so humbled. The feeling of peace and love was indescribable. I am still so overwhelmed and in tears as I write this to you.

I have often had a word here and there from the Lord but never anything so astounding as this.

I only hope that this inspires so many people. Never give up on your beliefs; we are not crazy, and we will all be together if we keep trusting and believing in Jesus.

Rachel is slowly coming to terms with his passing. All I know is that seeds have now been sown amongst her friends and also the many people I have already told. I pray that these seeds will be watered.

I just wanted to share this experience with you as I know you feel so inspired when you hear of the Lord working.  God bless.



Please pray for my family for salvation. Pray for our churches, our schools, and our leadership.

Thank you.



Your prayers are requested for National Champion Super Modified Sprint Car racing champion Ray Lee Goodwin of Sedalia, MO, who is having major health problems following a very successful racing career.

After high school at Center High School in Kansas City (where he was the catcher on the school team), he entered his first race in 1959 and also met his wife-to-be for the next 49 years, Alice Powell. She died in 2018 on, sadly, Ray Lee’s 78th birthday (February 1).

In the 60’s, he won the CARB (Central Auto Racing Boosters) season points championship (’64), the Jayhawk (KS) season points championship (’67), the IMCA (International Motor Contest Association) season points championship in Tulsa, OK (’67), and in 1969 he had 19 “A” feature wins at Eagle, NE. That same year he won three “A” features in three days in three states (Belleville, Kansas; Eagle, Nebraska; Knoxville, Iowa).

He burst onto the national scene in ’66 with a 4h place in the Tampa, Florida, Winter Nationals, and in 1968 won the Super Modified National Championship in Knoxville, Iowa. This year (2018) he was honored as the Grand Marshall of the 58th Annual Knoxville Nationals for his big win fifty years ago.

In 1972 he was again the IMCA season points champion with a major win at Sedalia (MO) in 1970, but his 16-year racing career was cut short from a 1975 Knoxville racing accident that blinded him in one eye and permanently damaged his other eye.

In 1979 he was selected as a charter member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, and in 1999 he was voted into the U.S. Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

Ray Lee, who is a Catholic, urges all RR followers to continue looking up to and praising our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He currently has major heart problems with only partial eyesight and other health problems. So include Ray Lee in your prayers.


This is my final article for a while as I’m headed back to the hospital. God willing, I’ll be back with you shortly.
