Pre-Rapture Prayer List #5 :: Compiled by Dick Ainsworth

The remnant Church of Jesus Christ can be raptured at any time now. End-Times Bible prophecies are being fulfilled every day; thus, so many crazy uncles from all over the world are in near panic now that the rapture is so near and so many family and friends are still so far from Jesus. Prayer is urgently needed for those who are lukewarm and living in darkness.

A good way to build a stronger prayer life is to print off hard copies of Prayer Lists #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 and following, 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

I have the same requests as many I have just read in RR prayer lists, and am grieved every minute of every day for the souls of my precious daughter, son-in-law and my 84-year-old husband. They don’t want to hear anything I want to tell them and do not believe anything I try to explain. They just get angry with me. So I just suffer in my depression, knowing what is ahead. I want to be happy, looking forward to the Rapture, or even my passing on into Glory if the Lord tarries; but the grief for my family interferes with the joy I want to experience! Please, please pray for my loved ones and for me!


(Dick’s reply): I don’t know your prayers, so I hope my suggestions aren’t repeats of what you are presently praying?

Pray to God in the Name of His Son to send His Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of your lost members of your family and that they be more open to your words. You are a true example of what I mean by the term “crazy uncle.” That is the person that family and friends dread seeing show up at family get-togethers, etc., as they speak the Truth of the Gospels. Satan is the cause of them rejecting your witness and God’s perfect truths, so pray that God will restrict and remove Satan’s lies and influence from your family’s hearts and lives.

Many times family and friends reject crazy uncles’ witnessing efforts, but many times someone from outside of your circle is effective. So pray to God to place Christian witnesses in the pathways of your family and friends.

Do this immediately as I believe time is short before the rapture. If they are left behind, be sure to leave left-behind box(es) with your personal letter explaining where and why you disappeared.

I have attached articles #23, #18 and #14 that might help you? These same articles are also in the Rapture Ready archives. I urge you to read them and then print them off and place in your left-behind box.


Hello all out there in need of prayer! I’ve been thinking about all of you and praying for many of the requests I’ve just read about. Strangely, before I read this prayer list, for instance, I was praying for people in India for some reason – thinking and praying for each and every suffering I could think of, until it was too much and I began to cry.

I’ve been disabled as well as my husband. No family or friends to help. I was talking to the Lord, wondering what my purpose was… I finally got an answer. God showed me that my purpose, because I don’t leave the house much, etc., was to encourage the brethren. HE showed me that I had been sending emails and texts of encouragement to friends and family, and to “hold on and persevere” as so many are suffering!

I’m feeling like I can’t bear it much longer; I want to be with my Father in heaven. My faith is strong, but after so many years of trials, I confess I’m weary—desperate for the rapture. The good part of being weary is All I have is God, His Word and prayer. I’ve never been closer to Him, and He shows me He’s there. But I’m so desperately wanting to be free of this world. The only thing that helps me to accept His will is that others need to know Him…for that I will keep waiting and praying.

Please pray for oppression to leave me and my husband, as well as strength to continue the good fight… but most importantly I trust whatever God’s will is for my life.

Thank you,



Hi Dick,

I am returning with the same/similar prayer request and a new request.

My son Jacob seems to hate me. He splits time between our home and his dad’s home. When he gets here, he is on his cell phone constantly. I have placed parameters around the phone when he is at our house. He does not like it. He makes it plain that he hates me.  He is 16. He hardly says a word to me. When I do get an answer, it is one or two words. This has gone on for years now. It is devastating to me as a parent.

He said the sinner’s prayer when he was very young, but now verbally lets me know that he doesn’t even believe there is a God. I do believe that the Christian school he has attended has him mixed up. He sees Pharisees (ways) and thinks that is what Christians are all about.

I have tried so many times to talk to him, to reason with him, to show him kindness and love. It seems that I am failing. He lets me know every day by his facial expressions that he loathes me. I do not know if OSAS (once saved always saved) applies, but I am hoping that Jacob will return to Jesus…and soon.

I also started a new job, 6 weeks into it now. There are 2 people who seem to automatically hate me. They are each other’s best friends. One says she is a Christian; the other is not. The Christian is rude, scheming and underhanded when dealing with me. She seems to do her best to put a jab in at least several times a day to me. She is supposed to be a supportive assistant to my job, and yet almost at the beginning has made my job 10 times harder than it needs to be. She is supposedly close friends with the boss.

I don’t understand this at all. I have come into this job with such excitement, willing to learn, flexible attitude, but now I just feel completely defeated and depressed. Please pray for my son and for me.


(Dick’s reply): “Hate” is from Satan, Period. So your son is being influenced by Satan. Also your coworkers. As far as putting restrictions on his phone, you might be making matters worse? This is the 16-year old’s new normal and way of life. So you might consider the old saying, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em?” Start texting him and see if he won’t respond with more than two words.


Linda Louise Fristoe is requesting prayer for her youngest pregnant daughter, Bree Fristoe Burras, who was admitted to the University of Iowa hospital with early delivery at 22 weeks. Her membranes broke, causing her to be admitted. They started her on antibiotics and steroids. Pray that the steroids will strengthen the baby’s lungs so he will survive.

Linda is thankful for everyone’s prayers.
