New Prayer Requests:
Hailey, Pauline (98)Amarillo, Texas
Please pray for Pauline Hailey, 98, of Amarillo, Texas. She has come down with an illness that is being treated with antibiotics, but she is having trouble keeping food down. At her age, any kind of illness is troubling. Thank you.
Hogg, ValPrevious Requests
Val has been on an IV antibiotic because of a serious infection in one of the ulcers on her leg, and now she is on oral antibiotics. She has been transferred from the hospital in town to a suburban rehabilitation hospital - which she much prefers. She did not break any bones in her fall, but the flesh at the base of her spine was split. Other than that, she has numerous bruises and sore spots. Val is very grateful for the prayers. At this stage there is no talk of her being able to return home, and she is concerned about the care of her aged cat. Your continued prayers would be appreciated.
According to Val's daughter, Val has no memory of the fall, even though it has been calculated that she was on the floor for at least 5 hours. She also has a significant inflection in one of the large ulcers in her leg. When she has been treated for the urgent matters, she will be transferred to a rehabilitation hospital. Thank you for your prayers.
Jackson, PhyllisPrevious Requests
The doctors have scheduled a procedure for Phyllis to put in a pacemaker this afternoon. Your continued prayers are appreciated!
King, JayPrevious Requests
Jay wants to thank everyone for their prayers for him during his recovery. His healing is progressing nicely and he will soon start physical rehabilitation, which will last around 6 months. The cards, phone calls, and emails make this trial much easier to endure. He sees God's help in this trial and is humbled by this experience, and is very grateful for the love and support of God's family.
Lambert, MaryPrevious Requests
I have been struggling with mostly substitute caregivers since [last October]. I've notified the agency that I work with about this, that I would like a full time caregiver instead of subs each day or two. Today I had no caregiver and the rest of the week will be subs anyway if they provide me with anyone, so I may as well be looking for someone dependable and reliable. I'm also dealing with numerous, serious health issues. I'm exhausted and need help. I know my help comes from God. I would really appreciate the prayers of the brethren on my behalf for this. God is in control, so I want to follow His lead in this.
Lemieux, Dylan (10)Fort Mill, South Carolina
The family has set up a memorial fund, which can be found at:
The family of Dylan Lemieux would like to thank everyone for their prayers, thoughtful messages, and encouragement. They are grateful for the overwhelming love and compassion. Your continued prayers would be appreciated at this time.
The funeral service will be held on Monday, January 16, at 6:00 p.m., at the Church of the Great God, 10409 Barberville Rd, Fort Mill, SC, 29707. Flowers for the family may be sent to the church office.
Immediate prayers are requested for Dylan Lemieux, son of Stacey Lemieux and grandson of Martin and Susan Collins. Details are sketchy at the moment, but what we know is that he was having to be revived after an accident of some sort. Please ask for God's intervention in this young boy's life. Thank you.
We are deeply saddened to report that the paramedics called to the scene were unable to revive Dylan. Please pray for his family as they grieve his tragic loss. Thank you.
Mojica, MoisesPrevious Requests
Mariela Reiss's Dad, Moises, has been going through a rigorous Chemotherapy and Radiation schedule of treatments since early December for the smaller cancerous tumors that they did not remove during his brain surgery in November. Even though difficult, to this point he had been coping fairly well, but he is now "having a really rough week and he's feeling very discouraged."
Mariela writes: "Please pray that God might give Dad the strength and especially the encouragement that he needs to finish out this treatment (2 more weeks). And that God might heal him and protect him from the side effects of the chemo and radiation, especially the vomiting and the sores that we think are happening in his throat. He's having a hard time eating, drinking and sleeping and it's hard to stay positive under those circumstances. I thank everyone for their prayers so far but Dad is hitting the hard part of the process and could use continued prayers."
Murray, Nathaniel (6)Previous Requests
Nathaniel has responded well to treatment and has been sent home. He is restricted to a wheelchair for the next month so no pressure is put on his leg. A nurse will be visiting daily to give him an intravenous antibiotic. His recovery is far from complete, but it is moving in the right direction.
Please pray for Nathaniel Murray, 6, the son of Rob and Cherie Murray, members of UCG in Australia. Nathaniel has a staph. infection in his shin bone. He is on intravenous antibiotics for a week, and depending on how successful that is, other treatments will be determined. His parents are asking for God's intervention and would be thankful for the prayers of the brethren. Thank you in advance.
Richter, CarolinePrevious Requests
After a mammogram, an ultrasound, and a biopsy, Caroline Richter has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She is scheduled for a P.E.T. scan on next Wednesday to determine what stage it is and to get more information about the tumor's growth. The Richter family would appreciate your prayers for God's intervention and healing. Thank you in advance.
Sagen, AlanPrevious Requests
Regina Sagen requests prayers for Alan, who has been diagnosed with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and has two partially blocked carotid arteries. He is scheduled for a P.E.T. scan in a couple of weeks, and has been referred to a vascular surgeon and prescribed a statin medication. In addition he has a couple more cancer treatments to undergo for the chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Regina is concerned that the statin and anesthesia (for any possible surgery) might further exacerbate Alan's continued cognitive decline. She requests prayers for God's wisdom and strength as they navigate the medical maze, and for God's mercy and intervention so that surgery might be avoided. Regina also requests prayers for God's help and strength as Alan's caregiver. Although the Hepatitis C was successfully treated, she still deals with chronic fatigue, likely due to the hypothyroidism and Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) for which she is being treated. She greatly appreciates everyone's continuing prayer support over the years.
Stites, LindaPrevious Requests
Linda has been having a recurring sciatica condition. It has slowly been getting better, but yesterday she slipped on the kitchen floor and wrenched her back. Now the sciatica has returned and is giving her more pain. She is requesting continued prayer. Thank you in advance.
Yariv, Ronita (53)Israel
I got a date for the operation; it's February 13, early morning. I'll be hospitalized on the 7th for preparatory work ups. Thank you all and thanks be to God!
