PLease pray for my mom who has a bad virus and is going through a tough time
Praying for your mom...hope she's feeling better! Just saw your comment and felt prompted to pray for her and to give you some encouragement. Stay strong in Christ. His strength overcomes our frailties. Blessings! Jerermiah 29:11
i will pray for your mom and i am sorry that she is is not feeling well today
I am Oliveira Junior, I am the parent of Brazil Ribeirão Preto - São Paulo. I am a Music Producer. Christian Gospel United Missionary Church. I wonder how can I get permission to record the music of the band Mercy of you Casting Crowns. If you would like to get permission to record this song. What procedure, amount of money. I tried to find some contact, department of the band who could speak on this subject, but not found. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, if you could kindly send a reply, or have the contact that we can contact. Thank you, God bless awaiting response!
PLease pray for my ten year old granddaughter, Zoe (the same name I believe as one of Mark's children). My daughter, her mother, is going through a divorce. It is tearing me apart inside and I fear for what this does to Zoe. After seeing "Courageous" there is a part of that movie that hit me extremely hard considering her age. How long does God allow us to keep these gifts of children.
In addition, pray for my health. Just got back PSA levels that have gone from 2.4 to 3.0 in two years. I was told last night to come back in December and test again. If it continues this rise then it could be bad news. Don't care about myself that much but it is more my fear for Zoe to see her parents split up and then if bad things do happen from my PSA levels could possibly see her Poppy get sick.
I add my prayers to all on here. I pray for the upcoming tour, the CD release, the movie and for Melodee and her surgeries.
God has used your music to inspire me greatly. BTW: James was the first book I taught verse by verse through a couple of years ago.
Thanks and God Bless all
I'm praying for you Don and your granddaughter Zoe. I pray God puts his healing hands on your family. I'm reminded of this very verse from klove a several weeks ago.
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life."
we hold u up in prayer for zoe..that name alone means "blessings" that the circle of the Fathers Grace be upon her and u.
Hi I seen your comment and it touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I will be praying for your grandaughter Zoe, and her parents. I will pray that God will make a miracle for you guys. Stay strong in Jesus in your faith, and know that He is our only hope.
i love your music because your music is such a live saving experience for me and i love god
I HOPE I'M NOT TO LATE. I HAVE JUST READ WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY. YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY ARE ALREADY IN MY PRAYS.
AND I WILL TRY TO GET AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE FROM AROUND HERE IN NORTHERN IRELAND IN THE UK.
Please get the resources links up and running again. I love all of the lessons you've put together, and use them with our Fellowship of Christian Athletes group that meets at our school. We are using the Zero 2 Hero lessons right now, but since the look of your site has changed I haven't been able to access them. Thanks for your ministry!!!
Hello dear Mark Hall, yesterday I watched your concert at Bellevue church of Memphis. It was wonderful night with good testimonies and a lot of teachings. I am from Mongolia and I think I am one of the very few Mongolians who have watched your concert, may be I am the only one. Right now my son is getting treatment in St Jude Research hospital cause of malignant brain tumor, he is 2 old and he had surgery of removing the tumor in Memphis and had high dose of chemos and he just finished 6 weeks of radiation. There was no cure for him in my country, God saved his life through St Jude hospital. We have been leaving in Memphis since the end of March of this year. It is a great privilege to be in concert of your band. For the first time I saw your band picture in my pastor's office in Mpngolia, he is anointed with worship, your band is his favorite band and I read the name as 'Casting crowns' and I thought what a strange name. But I have never ever thought i would watch your concert in US in real life. Please know that there is people who love your band in Mongolia, in other side of the planet. It was so much blessing to me and I praise God for your worship ministry, May God bless you all, Love in Christ, Dolgor. You can contact with me by this @

I am living in Shanghai, China and doing a bible study on James here. I love to be able to listen to you and share what you say in our discussions. I love the Casting Crowns... your music speaks the Lord's word and touches me. I have the downloaded to my computer so that I can get my fix on Jesus music daily. You are such a blessing to so many...
Please pray for me and my mother Brenda Townsend we are both having stomach pain and are probably going to get test ran soon. Thank you.
Hello Mark how are you doing my brother in Christ. My name is Jeff from Indy & the first time I met you was at one of your concerts a couple of years back. It was in Indy. At Garfield park for Mission preborn were you layed hands on my shoulder and prayed for my younger brother Mark who was caught up in satans trap of severe alcholism.I also got to meet you last year at purdue campus on the "Until The whole world hears" tour with my wife and give you a letter thanking you for your prayer and also for your heart for jesus and your music and books which have touched my life so much. One of the things I forgot to put in the letter was that the beatifull proverbs 31 lady "Kim my wife" who I introduced to you at the purdue concert was also at the Garfield park concert with me.We wasnt married then.She was there with me and our singles bible study group. She didnt come forward for prayer that day only my mother and I did for my younger brother . My wife & I & my brother & his new wife all went to see the movie Courageous it was amazing. I also went a second time to see it with my yougest stepson Josh. I beleive our relationship as stepdad and stepson had bonded a little closer together after seeing the movie.Next I am planning on taking my oldest stepson to go & see it with me as well. God has called me to the roll of fathership since I married Kim a couple of years ago.I have 2 stepsons Josh the youngest not married he will be 23 in a couple of days and the oldest one Brandon who is 27 he is married and has a 2 year old and a 4 year old. I am known to them as pappa Jeff. It is pretty cool. So God has called me into the roll of being a grandpa as well. I have made tremendous strides over these past couple of years with my youngest stepson Josh. He comes to church every sunday with my wife and me & even brings his friends he reads his bible daily.I catch him praying alot. He sees me leading by example. Mens prison ministry is just one of many that Josh sees me doing on a regular basis.
My wife thanks me everyday for me never giving up on him.It hasnt been exactly easy. However I am so proud of Josh!! He has came such a long ways in such a short time!! And I think I may even have been able to get him a job were I work. We are praying for that.
My wife and I sing jesus loves me and all kind of fun children songs to the grandkids when we have them.
And We have them alot. We teach our grandkids to pray and we let them know that Jesus loves them. I even have my grandson Aiden who is 4 convinced that I turn into spider man at night and peek in his window to make sure he is asleep in bed. Its pretty cool!! I dont have any biological kids of my own and my real dad altough dead for quite some time now. Was a angry alcholic man. But I choose to break the cycle with me!! Can you please pray for my father in law? He is a good christian man & he has parkasins disease and its realy tough on my wife. So Who would have guessed God would have allowed me to wait untill I was 40 to get married. Then ever so quickly step into the roll of fatherhood. These past 2 years have been the most challenging & yet the best years of my life!! But guess what?? I wouldnt have given it up for nothing in the world!! So where are you men of Courage?? Where are you spiritual husbands?? Were are you actively involved dads, step dads,& Grandads?? let us step up to the plate let us lead our families let us teach our children to trust God, to pray to God and to study Gods word!!! AS FOR ME & MY HOUSE I WILL!!!!!! God Bless you Casting Crowns, When I first tottaly surrendered my life to God 4 and half years ago. I wanted to change the music I listened to. I heard the song on the radio "Who am I" it brought me to my knees and I have never been the same!! A Crowns fan 4 ever!!! May God bless all of your ministries that each of you do always & 4 ever!!!
Hey Mark Jeff from Indy here again. I also wanted to say how much I admire the Crowns for putting there church first and the touring second. Although I would love it if you could make Indy every tour I totaly appreciate why sometimes you cant. I also want you to know that we are lifteing up Hope in prayer And We believe that God is going to heal her. What an amazing thing that you and your wife have decided to do for that precious little girl. Also tell Melodee we are also lifting her up in prayer. As a person who plays guitar myself and has also led worship I couldnt even imagine what she must be going through. But we serve a huge God!! It must be so sweet the music that God hears comeing out of Melodees fiddle. So I know God must long to hear it some more. That is why I know God is going to fully recover her and give her back to what she enjoys the most. Thats playing her fiddle for the King of Kings!!! God Bless!!!
Was at your redmond concert recently and nvr recieved the new cd yet in mail.......i paid for 2 cds 20.00 wanted ur newest ones.......thk you
Thank you for this study and also for your Daily Devotionals on KLove. I sit at my desk at work and listen to them. It is such a blessing and I pray it touches many others as it does me daily
My wife Danielle and I are praying for you, Melanie and especially Hope. We have a six year old son, Hunter, who was born with VATER Syndrom (Vacterl Association)and has had 32 operations to date. He was born with an imperforate anus, a horseshoe kidney and a teathered spine. He actually has had multiple surgeries at Cinci, Riley, St. Vincent's, etc. I say all this to encourage you that God is indeed good. We were told that he would never walk and he now runs like the wind. Jesus has guided us every step of the way and we have been immeasurably blessed by the life of our son. I pray in Jesus name that Hope would be healed completely and that the Holy Spirit would provide you all comfort, peace and guidance through these times. If we can ever be of any help to you at all please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
I am a husband of twelve years and a father of five children--four boys and one girl. They are all twelve and under, my wife home-schools them--so needless to say she is very busy. I am attending Ohio Christian University--my desire and I believe calling is to be a youth pastor--kids are my passion, and the desire to lead them to the Lord is my hope and yearning. Please pray for me that I will be "courageous" in the cause of the Great Comission--to share Christ so that some might be saved--I thank you for how the Lord has ministered to me through your music. I lift you up in prayer with the hope that the health of you and yours is sound and strong. God Bless you Mark, And your family. In Jesus service Scott.
Thank you, Mark...for having this Bible study on your website. God bless you and your ministry.
I am very interested in the youth resources you spoke about at the concert I attended in Dothan, Al. I have looked everywhere for the downloads about 6 different books of the bible but can not find them....Helpppp please, where are the resources and how do I download them for my youth group...is there a price, if so where do I go to purchase this.
My husband passed away 2 years ago and I have been struggling financially since. Please pray for me as I am about to start bankruptcy proceedings. I am not sure I am doing the right thing but I am just giving this all to God!!
I just want you to know how much your music touches lives. In my darkest moment when I was considering ending it all.. I recalled the line from one of your songs that Megan sings and said outloud " God I know you are there and you see what is going on right now" And His presence flooded me. Thanks because I might not me here now if not for you guys and the sharing of your music
Please pray for me because I have anger issues. I want to stop the worrying about stupid little issues. When I think about the big picture, I realize time on earth is so short and I need to value each and every moment. Thanks very much because I believe with God all things are possible.
I was at concert in Bossier City, La last night. It was awesome. I am a R.N. and work at Psych hospital with adolescents. I thank God you stood, acknowledged the call to reach out to our youth. They need love, direction, support, prayer, encouragement. So many have lost hope. The words to Set me Free, was typical of many I cared for. I will pray for all of you. God calling his people to wake up, wake up, go and reach those who do not know me. It's like a wave occurring. Let your Lite Shine!!!
Please pray for me and my children as we are going through a difficult divorce.
Lost my dad a year ago 2 weeks before christmas, having trouble enjoying christmas. Keep me in prayer that I get through the holidays .
this is the first time on your website...I am among a ton of #1 fans your band has brought in....I was listening to your August youtube video about your adopted daughter (forgive me, I can't remember her name), And I hope she is doing better (with Jesus healing hand) now that it is December. I will begin praying for her on a regular basis (since I don't know the details), on an all around physical, emotional, mental healing that she can grow up to be more healthy and stronger then most, and to walk as a living testimony to others....Mark, and the rest of your wonderful band, thank you so much for your music and songs; you have no idea how much you have helped get me out of some situations in life, talk about love on the straight and narrow :) thank you so much again....Lacey
I need prayer for healing of damaged emotions. Keeping my eyes focused on God during the heart ache.

Hi mark, your such a blessing to me:) and iam praying for you,and your wife and especially hope,she is such a sweetie:) your friend emilee
I pray for everyone with anything they are going through the lord can move mountains and I know and believe that he will be there for you. I just found out I am pregnant and I am very worried about losing this baby, I pray each day that the lord let me keep this child we have been blessed with. I have a buetiful daughter who is 7 who is very happy to be a big sister but for some reason I heve had this fear of losing this baby. Please I need someone to pray with me.
I would just like everyone to pray that I would start doing God's calling on my life. It is so hard when the world pulls you this way and that way. I have spurts where I am on fire, but then I settle back into my normal routine. I want to be on fire every day for God. Also please pray for my pastor Andrew Chambers. God has healed him once of cancer and now he needs another miracle that only God can provide. Thank you for your prayers, and thank you Mark Hall for what you do!
Thank you for all of your music it helps when I need reminding of how much and how often the Lord is working in my life. I pray for you and your family esp. Your daughter who has special needs, we have a 28yr old daughter who has had well over 30 surgeries, two of which were at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital - with no hope and yet she is now 28 - praise the Lord - If you could keep my 15yr old who is having horrible pains in her head I would appreciate it - with no insurance it makes it devasting as parents - and for my husband who hasn't had a permanent job in years - he's in finance - he is a man of great faith so thanks for your prayers. Have a blessed day all
I am 16 and just lost a friend a couple of hours ago.
Will be praying for safe trip for you and family. Lift my family up struggling with finances and making ends meet. God Bless.
Father God thank you for Mark and Melody from Casting Crowns Father be near them in their time of struggle give them peace that passes understanding. Continue to use them to minister Your Love Jesus to the world. protect their families and pour out mercy and wisdom upon them
In Jesus precious name Amen
please, please pray for my son, Tanner. He is not walking with Lord. He is doing drugs, lying, depressed and rebelling. Satan has got a hold on him. Please pray he would be released from his grip and come back to the Lord. He is a wnderful young man just so lost. This is tearing our family apart. I love him so much. thank you, God bless
I have only really prayed this hard one's before when I lost my son, I am asking my circle of friends that "carry a strong faith", through you and my "Casting Crown" family....I am searching for a miracle..not for me, if I could I would give her parts of me to make her whole, so I must now search for another place, "God's power of healing through prayer" that my cousin gets a miracle to get this illness away from her body..."You have given me abundant life through Your Word and it flows to every organ of my body bringing healing and health. (John 10:10, John 6:63) please pray this prayer for her, not for me....Thank you, and Love you all! I have prayed for Hope and Melody and all of you are always in my prayers...You all are embedded in my heart, if you could plz do this for me..I know it's all in Gods hands but through prayer around the world..miracles can happen.
I am a youth worker and have my growth group going through the book of James. Thank you for taking the time to do this study! I have alot going on at this time, my father is battling cancer, father in law waiting for results of biopsy, a prodigal step son and brother. I struggle knowing if I should keep up with my ministry or take some time off to take care of family. Appreciate prayer for all of us. Just attended Casting Crowns concert, loved it and your advice to youth workers was extremely helpful! Seeking to get my girls plugged into serving somehow. Thank you & God bless you for all you do! Praying for you and yours today!
Thank you for the James Study. I am not done yet though. I am suffering from depression/anxiety. Your song Set Me Free, means alot to me and I listen ALOT. I dont know what to do. I have a friend. We are buddies and she has come down on me very hard about my mental problem. What do I do. Its hard for me to go through this and I am hanging on to the Lord for strength and I have a wonderful familly. I just feel alone. Thank you for your song. Cindy firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayed for you this morning and the Lord laid Philippines 4:6&7 on my heart.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Praying for you Cindyb, I would recommend that you should meditate on John 10:10, 1 Corinthians 10:4-5. You should write them down on index cards and carry them on you, post them on the bathroom mirror and whenever these thoughts come on you and the enemy tries to tell you lies that aren't true, you should quote Scriptures every time he tries to place a stronghold on your life. I hope that this will help and God bless you Cindy. I'm praying for you!!
I have recently graduated from a christian discipleship program.I have not been able to find work and still suffer from a desire to return to drugs and alcohol.Please pray that the Lord will remove these obstacles and allow me to be a witness of his perfect love for us.Thanks.
I am a bass player who has struggled with all kinds of addictions. I got into playing praise and worship and I had a hard time not getting paid while others where paid. I want to be set free, is this possible to be fully set free and if it is I want it. Pray I will be released from the troubles in my mind and that God will give me the desire he wants me to have in my heart. ty.
Am a mum of three year old boy who was diagnosed with hydrocephalaus, underwent sugery been okay, but now he's developed scissor legs, am being told there's a probability he'll need sugery to correct it am really down, coz i don't have the money for the procedure, still needs to go to a special school due to he's delayed milestone and getting a good school for special kids it's really expensive, I really don't want to get to the point where i start questioning God coz i know it's wrong but at the same time am like for the past three years things have just been getting thick and thick, all am asking is for prayers coz all this is really taking a toll on me and i feel like giving up sometimes.
