New Prayer Requests:
Biles, ClydePrevious Requests
Jerry Biles would like to thank everyone for your continued prayers on behalf of his Dad. Clyde has improved enough that he has been released from the rehab facility to his home but he is in hospice and the doctors have told Jerry that his Dad has only about 6 months to live. However, Jerry is very grateful to God for this gift of quality time to spend with his Dad before the end of his life and he asks that you continue to remember them in your prayers.
Jerry would like to thank everyone for your prayers on behalf of his father, Clyde. To the surprise of the doctors, his remarkable improvement has allowed them to transfer him to a rehabilitation center, where he is in the process of building up enough strength to undergo the necessary procedures that are needed to restore him to good health. Jerry said that Clyde's recovery, to this point, has truly been miraculous and he would greatly appreciate your continued prayers on behalf of his father.
Clark, SandraPrevious Requests
Sandra Clark is scheduled for brain surgery on Tuesday, August 7th and in a request for your prayers she writes.... "for God to keep me safe and to guide the surgeon 's hands, so that I may get back to coming to sabbath services and keeping God's Holy days. Please pray for me ! God is Good !"

Clinton, Jane (72)Previous Requests
Jane Clinton is requesting your prayers for her dear friend Kelly. Kelly is an elderly disabled lady who is going though a number of very difficult trials at the moment that include her health, her living arrangements and her finances.

Eggers, ChrisLancaster, South Carolina
Funeral services for Carolyn Eggers will be held Friday, August 3, 2018, at 1 PM at Plainfield United Methodist Church (600 Simmons St., Plainfield, Indiana). Visitation is scheduled for Thursday from 4 to 8 PM at Hall Baker Funeral Home (339 E Main St., Plainfield, Indiana). Please continue to pray for the comfort of the Eggers family. Thank you.
Harris, Roy (82)Medford, Oregon
Prayers are requested for Roy Harris, 82, of Medford, Oregon. Despite using a walker, he fell yesterday and broke his hip. Surgery is scheduled for this afternoon, Tuesday, July 31. Your intercession is appreciated.
Morse, EmmaSparta, Georgia
Please continue to pray for Emma. She did not feel well when she got up yesterday, and later in the day she began slurring her speech and suffered from confusion and weakness. She was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Emma thinks she may have had a stroke, but the doctors did not confirm that; they told her she was dehydrated and sent her back home. Emma, though, is certain she was not dehydrated. She is asking for your prayers for healing whatever the problem was, and is thankful to those praying for her.
Additionally, Emma was supposed to have a nurse, caregivers, and physical therapists come to her house this week to work with her after her knee replacement surgery. However, nobody showed up, and she has been told that she needs to attend therapy in another town. Please pray for her to be able to find rides to the therapy.
Emma lives alone and needs help with cooking, laundry, housework, grocery shopping and more. Few, if any, of her family members are helping her at this time, and she would appreciate your prayers for God's providence. Thank you.
Emma was released from the hospital this morning and is now recuperating at home. She will have health care workers and therapists stopping in several times a week to work with her and her family is nearby as well. She still has a long way to go to regain her mobility, so continued prayers are appreciated.
Emma's surgery went well. The surgeons discovered that part of the artificial knee was loose, and another part was mismatched in size, so Emma received a completely new replacement. The concern now is that her blood pressure is quite low, and she would appreciate your prayers in that regard. She is doing well other than that, and wouldn't mind hearing from the brethren. Her room number is (706) 774-3928. Thank you for your prayers on her behalf.
Regnier, LloydPrevious Requests
Keith Regnier is requesting your prayers on behalf of his Father, Lloyd Regnier, who is a long time and faithful member of God's Church. Lloyd has dementia and is in a nursing home in Missouri. Please keep both Lloyd and his family in your prayers, as they go through this very difficult time.
Sablich, CraigPrevious Requests
Craig is asking for prayer for spiritual strength and endurance over the next several weeks. He is going through some very difficult personal issues that are becoming a heavy burden, and needs help in making the right decisions. He is praying that the situation can be resolved before the Feast of Tabernacles so he can have peace while celebrating with the brethren.
Craig would also like to extend a great big "Thank you" to all the brethren for their continued prayers on his behalf to secure a job close to home. He writes,
A quick story to help the brethren KNOW beyond doubt that our God is aware and in charge. Previously I had secured a job in Pascagoula. To begin work, one must attend an orientation class which is only given on Wednesdays. I was supposed to attend an orientation last Wednesday in order to start work this past Monday. After leaving my house, my truck engine light began to blink and the engine began missing something awful. I had to go back home and missed the orientation. The next Wednesday was the 4th so they were closed, which meant it would be yet another 2 weeks before I would be able to attend orientation.
Well, I had sent in my resume to another company about 2 months ago that just happened to be about 15 min from my home, which is unheard of living on the north shore of the lake. After my initial follow up conversation with them, the HR person told me they were in the process of expanding office space and it might be several weeks before they would conduct interviews.
So, if my truck hadn’t broken down, and I attended the orientation, I would have started work this past Monday. About 11:00 am on Monday, I received a call out of the blue from the closer company, and they asked me to come in for an interview on Tuesday. The interview went very well and on Friday morning I received an offer to start work this coming Tuesday morning. Not only that, but they matched my previous salary and vacation package, which was completely unexpected. All I can say is OUR GOD IS AN AMAZING GOD. He knows all, He sees all, and He guides us through every aspect of our lives if we will just be patient and let Him guide events according to His will.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
Please pray for our safety and protection. We have not yet defined our boundaries by way of a wire or wall fence. Of late, there has been a trespasser who passes just by my bedroom window, which is very disturbing. He passes in our yard around the same time at night. We need a permanent solution and to be kept safe in the meantime. Thank you in advance.
Saxton, MargiNorth Augusta, South Carolina
Your prayers are very much appreciated. After six days of the prescribed antibiotic therapy, Margi developed very serious side effects and had to discontinue use of the medication. Thankfully, she was made aware of a more natural treatment by one of the brethren, and has opted to follow that regimen. She is improving daily. She experiences periods of exhaustion and fatigue but these are occurring less frequently. These are her only symptoms and are likely part of the recovery process. She requests your continued prayers for her complete healing. Thank you.
Swanson, SharonPrevious Requests
Bill and Sharon Onisick are requesting prayers for their good friend and longtime church of God member Sharon Swanson. Sharon was originally diagnosed in 2017 with stage 4 breast cancer, which has now moved into her bones. Sharon and her husband Will are planning a trip to Mexico to seek treatments that are not available in the U.S.
Please pray for God’s healing and for His Holy Spirit to strengthen Sharon, Will, Hunter and Haven as His will is done.
The treatment is very expensive, and the Swanson’s have a page for those that are able and want to support them financially:
