Pre-Rapture Prayer List #9 :: Compiled by Dick Ainsworth

Pre Rapture Prayer List #9
Thanks to my three grown computer-smart kids, I now have a list of links at the end of this post to where you can go to any or all of the previous eight prayer lists posted in this series thus far. It sure beats scrolling through miles upon miles of archived articles to find a particular article. I would have done this sooner but I didn’t know how?

The list appears at the end of this post. Now you can print off hard copies of each prayer list, bind them together and you are ready as an individual prayer warrior, a family group and/or a home church or a regular remnant church prayer group to bring these many prayers before God.

Also for those of you who follow the “After the Rapture” series, the direct links to the first 52 articles are listed in article #53 at:

So I want to thank my three super kids (Jet, Mira and Hope) for helping their computer-stupid dad emerge out of the computer world of darkness and into the light!


Recently submitted prayers:

I regret to inform you that since Sunday (December 16) we have a hurricane, and it’s called Pethaaye which is more powerful and damages houses, crops and kills the people. The children at our orphanage are fearing a lot about this terrible cyclone, but we have a faithful God and are looking to Him for protection. Please kindly pray for our safety from this cyclone.

Light of the World Ministry

West Godavari District


(Dick’s reply) This is from the same church where earlier this year Satan-inspired Hindu terrorists burned their church to the ground, piled up all of their Bibles, teaching materials, etc., in the middle of the street and burned them, plus attacked a group of their church pastors, street preachers, etc., putting some of the beaten in the hospital. But this church continues to do God’s work in spite of all the hardships.

I remember about ten years ago when a tsunami hit southern India, and this Light of the World ministry was one of the first on the scene to provide comfort, aid and support.

They can be reached at:


My wife is still in the nursing home (Dementia). I went to do some Christmas shopping for her, and while at the check-out line, the check-out clerk said to me, “You don’t look happy?” I told him why, and he said, “Let’s pray for her,” in which I answered that I was okay with that. We prayed right there with a line of customers waiting and looking on. I (Anthony Hamm) then asked him, “Will you get fired for this praying?” to which he answered “No, I’m the owner.” So I thought to myself that the crazy uncles are going strong in these end-times days!

(Dick’s reply) Let us all pray for that bold-in-Christ store owner and the needs he may have from Our Lord. Also pray for all of those standing in line listening to the prayer, plus continue to pray for Anthony’s wife that she will soon come to the Saving Grace of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She still hasn’t received Christ as her Lord and Savior. Time is running out on her.


The Glory goes to the Lord.

I live about 2,600 miles away from the rest of my immediate family, so I don’t see or hear from them often. I pray for all my family every day. Some attend church, but it’s a mainline Protestant church that has long since gone apostate. One of my nephews willfully sins, and he doesn’t care who knows it. He takes part in ‘pride parades’ about every year.

Please pray for my sister Lee. She was diagnosed with stage 3-4 cancer. A large tumor is on one of her kidneys. She is scheduled for surgery on December 26th, 2018. The surgeons will remove the effected kidney, plus all her lymph nodes and her urethra. She has been losing weight at 3 pounds a week, but has managed to keep working full time as she waits for her date of surgery.

I do not know for sure if she is saved. I asked if she was and her response was “No worries. My spirituality is very private to me. Please do not bring it up again.” So I assume she is not saved. She is soon to be 62 years old on December 19th.

I pray every day that she repents of her sins and asks Jesus to be her Lord and Savior. Please add her to your prayers and forward this request to others. I’m trying to get as many as possible to pray for her.

Thank you so much.

In Jesus.


Oh my dear brother, thank you, thank you, thank you! I pray that God blesses you and gives you life until the rapture. I so enjoyed your article, “After the rapture.” So you are the crazy uncle that I’ve been hearing about. Most of my limited audience thinks I’m crazy, really.

I suffered from the “Widow-maker” at home on a Sunday night 5 years ago. I clinically died, and much to their surprise, God breathed life back into me. After this I started hunting to donate meat to the hungry. I’m a terrible hunter, but usually blessed enough to feed a few.

I joined a hunting site to learn how. This site also has a spiritual page to post. I do often, but rarely does it seem to do any good. I know there are a handful of Christians in the 2,000+ members, but not a single one of them knows anything about the season we are in. Never do any of my posts on prophecy get liked. They think I’m crazy. Recently, I’ve just been telling them to not believe the lie. It gets frustrating to say so much, but not see the fruit of it. I’m just hoping that they remember what the old crazy guy told them would happen.

You are so right about Satan talking to the masses. It seems that God just gives me one at a time, and consequently I feel like I’m losing, not doing enough. But oh how awesome it is when God points to a soul and says, “I want you today, and I have someone to send.”

After my heart attack, I suffered a bit of depression in the form of apathy. I was even apathetic about my apathy; I didn’t care that I didn’t care. After three weeks this slipped away, but I was still not happy about being alive. I wanted to be home with the Lord! I prayed, “You know that I do not want to be here. Use me or take me home!”

That week I decided to pick up some bait to go fishing. At the bait shop just as I paid, a young African American woman walked in the shop. Immediately and in a timeless manner, the Holy Spirit says to me, “Give her whatever she needs.”

Intently I looked at the girl as if to say, “What do you need girl?” She started to cry as she told her story of need on this “wrong side of town” as she put it.  She was afraid to come into the store, but had no other choice. She was supposed to be getting her taxes done, but the lady wasn’t home, and she missed her bus.

My enthusiasm of telling her that I would take her home seemed to frighten her a bit. She looked at me intently up and down, trying to determine if I could be trusted, and then she said okay.

As we walked out to my truck, a guy from the store ran out to whisper in my ear, “Be careful; we don’t know who she is.” I didn’t need to know, because I knew that God knew her and wanted me to help her.   After a bit of small talk, I told her why I was willing to help her, and then shared the gospel with her. She looked at me and said that she had never before heard the words that had come out of my mouth. I don’t remember what I said, but it certainly didn’t seem like the most articulate presentation I’d ever given.

Anyway, we pull over, and she accepts the Lord as her personal Savior. When we got to her house, I offered her all the money in my wallet, but she refused to take any of it. She was so thankful for what she had received that she hugged me and told me that she loved me. I told her that I would probably never see her again on this earth, but that I’d see her in glory. She smiled enough to stretch her skin. Pointing at me she says, “I’ll see you there!”

Oh, I long for the day I meet Vanessa in glory. One at a time may seem so fruitless at times, but it is wonderful to be alive being used by the Father for His glory.

Blessings to you. I wish so very much that I knew you. I have very few people to talk with about the Lord. My daughter and son-in-law will not listen to me, but they have been told, and I believe that they will see the day that we meet Jesus in the clouds. I cannot fathom what delusion that God will send, but I told them that even if they see us being beamed up into UFOs, do not believe it; I’ve gone to be with my King.

I cannot thank you enough for your words.

Dennis Wright


I want to thank God for my salvation. Asking for prayer for digestive problems I am having and prayer for those who are not saved. Jesus is coming soon and many are not ready. Thank God for all blessings I have received. Thank God that He answers prayer.

Hi Dick,

A couple of months ago, I sent you mail requesting prayer for a friend called Antoinette and her husband Dennis. If you can remember, you answered my prayer request and it was posted; and I believe many people prayed for that couple’s marriage. I want to update you on it.

The truth is that things went from bad to worse. Antoinette gave up praying and was angry with God for months. She began to listen to unbelievers, and her anger and bitterness towards her husband grew. He stopped spending nights out and drinking so much but would come home and head for the garage and spend hours listening to music. She finally admitted she hates him, and he decided divorce is the answer.

Right now they are in a war over property and money. Antoinette claims to be a Christian but is now trying to convince the world that she prayed and she thinks the divorce is a sign that this is from God. As her friend, I spent hours praying for her only to hear her say that the situation got worse with prayer! She is listening to the enemy and thinking her life will improve without her estranged husband. He in turn (an unbeliever) just wants her out of his sight!

Basically I want to thank you for the prayers you sent,  but sadly have to inform you that Antoinette has accepted divorce as the answer to her marriage problems. She blames him and refuses to accept that it takes two people to make it; and in her sight she is the good one and he the bad. In my view, both of them have issues. She is out of God’s will but thinking God will bless her for her “suffering.” He of course is an unbeliever, so it makes no difference to him.

I trust your health has improved. Take care and the Lord bless you.

(Dick’s reply) God knows everyone’s heart, and He does not bless those who do not believe in Him. And He does know who believes in their hearts and who doesn’t. You can’t fool or trick Him. Antoinette doesn’t know that God doesn’t bestow blessings of sin on anyone (such as divorce). People who convinced her of that are speaking in behalf of Satan.

But the two and their daughter aren’t lost yet. Worldwide prayer warriors must buckle down even harder and pray for this family while they still have time. Pray that the Holy Spirit will lead them out of darkness and into the light.


Hey Dick,

Thank you for all of your articles you post on Rapture Ready and for sharing the requests of our brethren. I have a few prayer requests I’d like to get more prayer warriors in on.

Please pray for these young ladies and their families. They both got into a terrible accident on their way to a youth gathering. The people responsible for this crash are also in need of prayer to repent and turn their lives around; they’ve yet to be caught. Click here to support Fomin Inna and Natalie Car Accident Recovery Fund organized by Paul Karpets Jr.

My little sister Samantha has also taken a renewed interest in Bible Study. She professed belief years back but is still a pretty green Christian, and has doubts about things sometimes. Please pray for the Lord to guide and teach her. She’s also taken some interest in spreading the gospel in an online game despite her inexperience, so here’s praying it bears fruit.

I also have personal requests. I suffered several painful injuries doing an odd job early in November that have me rattled. I haven’t recovered fully yet, and the circumstances surrounding it have caused me some serious mental distress that I’m not sure how to describe. I’m autistic, and I’ve just been in an extremely bad rut the past month to where I get distressed just having my family members around; I spend most of my time holed up in my room trying to drown out everything, whether it’s noise or sensation. It’s not a good place to be, but I just don’t know how to get out of it.

I’ve been eyeing a chiropractor to help sort my physical problems out, but I don’t see how I’m going to get my head back on straight. Please pray that God will heal, guide, and carry me on the right path. I’ve been pretty lost and don’t really know what to do or even pray for a lot of the time.

Dee Kirk

(Dick’s reply) Maybe tricky Satan is leading you to be holed up in your room away from the true Christian fellowshipping I think you really need at a time like this? If solitary confinement isn’t working, try something else.


Thank you for all you do. Making these prayer requests available is a mighty undertaking. God bless you, brother.

I’m requesting prayer for my son Stephen Hall. He has had a valve replaced in his heart and has high blood pressure. He has no insurance to return to the doctor for check-ups. He is living in a tent. It is cold and snowy here in Virginia. I am very concerned about him. Also, I’m not sure if he is saved. Please, please lift him up in prayer.

Also, I have a praise for the Lord. I was in the hospital for about 3 weeks. Went in for a routine colonoscopy and found I had 2 masses and my colon was punctured twice. It was a traumatic time. I was close to death. But praise be to God, he was merciful to me and brought me through. We have a wonderful and loving Lord.

Thank you brother; hoping to see you soon in the air!

Changes in Prayer Requests:

As many of you have figured out by now, ole Dick Ainsworth qualifies to be termed as computer stupid! Thank God for grown intelligent kids and grandkids. They showed me how to provide links to make it easier for you readers to find previously posted prayer lists in the Rapture Ready archives. So I have changed the list of prayer lists to links so you can now go to them each with one click of the finger.

A good way to build a stronger prayer life is to print off hard copies of Prayer Lists #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8 and following, and at any time of day or night when you as an individual want to pray to the Lord, take out your printed copies and read/pray over them again. This is also great for family group prayer and home church group prayer. God has a very big memory and all prayers are recorded by Our Lord and Savior.

Below are the links to all prayer lists thus far:
