New Prayer Requests:
Allen, Ella and ChetPrevious Requests
Sacha Montgomery is requesting your continued prayers on behalf of her neighbors Ella and Chet Allen. The treatment for Ella's cancer is not going well and they would appreciate all the prayers that you can offer up to God for their family. Thank you in advance for all of your prayers.
Chandler, MelissaPrevious Requests
Melissa's Dad needs heart surgery again because his pacemaker's lead wire has come undone. However, a problem with a vein prevented the attempted repair. His doctors plan to try again with a different procedure, but the scheduling is uncertain because of so many people trying to have procedures done before the end of the year (for insurance reasons).
Melissa's Mom has been trying to help care for her husband, but with her own health problems, she needs help as well. He memory is deteriorating and she needs assistance in things like talking with doctors. Melissa will be helping in the weeks ahead.
Additionally, Melissa's sister's father-in-law has been diagnosed with bone cancer throughout most of his body, so Melissa's sister will be helping to take care of him.
Thank you all for your continued prayers over this year. May God's will be done. And prayers that we please God in all things every day and we glorify our Great God. Love to all.
Copeland, JackPrevious Requests
My uncle was evaluated at the hospital on Friday and it was found that a small blood clot had formed in his leg. They increased the dosage of his medication to dissolve the clot, and he was feeling better as of Sunday afternoon. Thank you for your prayers to our Great God.
My uncle, Jack Copeland, is at the hospital, experiencing numbness in his right leg. Over the years, he has been suffering from blood clots for which he has been taking blood thinner medications. He has already lost the feeling in his right hand. Please pray to our Great God to help him get the care that he needs because his primary care doctor’s office hasn’t sent a request that he asked for to the hospital at the time that I talked with him to treat him. I asked him to go directly to the ER area. Thank you for all of your prayers.
Fenwick, ShellyPrevious Requests
Shelly would like to thank you and also ask that you continue to pray about her spinal condition. On December 9, she's seeing an orthopedic specialist because of the severe pain she's been experiencing for about 2 months. She gets shooting pain, like an electric shock, up and down her spine and the backs of her legs. She believes there is new movement in the bones. She is asking that God would intervene, and also give her the knowledge and wisdom concerning the best decision.
She also wants to thank you for your prayers concerning the man who stole her license plate. Although the Illinois toll road has dropped charges, she is still dealing with the city of Chicago and getting more serious consequences added to her name and record. She has spent a great deal of time and effort over the last year, corresponding and calling, yet has been unable to get the information she needs to resolve this. She would appreciate your prayers for God's intervention and clearing of her name. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Hensell, AlfredPrevious Requests
Alfred's daughter is scheduled to undergo a C-section at her 39th week of pregnancy. This is Alfred's first grandson, and Alfred would appreciate your prayers that everything would go well. Thank you in advance.
Hobbs, JanPrevious Requests
Jan has a lot of pain in her back because of an injection that was not administered correctly. Please pray for her pain, as well as her ongoing heart problem. Thank you in advance.
Holley, LawrencePrevious Requests
My coworker’s wife was diagnosed with cancer while preparing for a trip overseas.... His wife has been going through chemotherapy and they are waiting on her condition to stabilize in order for her to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Thank you in advance for you prayers that this will happen soon.
I just had a physical with my primary physician in which he relieved the conclusion from the 2nd neurologist that, in his opinion, the reason I was experiencing my condition was most likely due to anxiety. . . . Thank you in advance for your prayers to our Great God to help me know what is going on, since this condition came about after being on some medications that I did not react well to.
Plunkett, TrishPrevious Requests
In addition to Trish's ongoing problems, this morning she blacked out while taking a shower. She fell and hurt her back, though X-rays show that she did not break any bones. She had two more blackouts during the afternoon, and her doctors say the blackouts are because of low blood pressure. A blood test has shown that Trish's phosphates are very low, so the doctors have started her on a drip to get her phosphate level back up. Thank you for your prayers for Trish and her family.
Reiss, JohnPrevious Requests
John Reiss is requesting your prayers on behalf of a co-worker's 10 month old daughter, Anna, who is suffering from daily seizures. The doctors have been unable to determine the cause of the daily seizures and the family would very much appreciate your prayers for God's merciful intervention and healing. Thank you in advance for your prayers on behalf of Anna and her family.
Sablich, CraigPrevious Requests
Well, brethren, just as before, God worked out things for the best. He continues to teach me that He is there just behind the scenes controlling everything. Thank you all so much for your love, prayers and support. Love ya'll so much.
I have a court date on December 3, which is a formal hearing of the last filing, accusing that the girls were in imminent danger while in my custody. These attacks will not stop until our God intervenes. I am once again asking my spiritual family, who I love dearly and have complete confidence in their love for me, to please pray to our Father that He intervenes and at some point His will in all of this is accomplished. Thank you all so much for your unending support. I love you all.
Sagen, AlanRound Rock, Texas
I would like to thank everyone for their prayers regarding Alan's transition to a different nursing home. The transfer itself on Friday went very smoothly and he is adjusting exceptionally well to his new living arrangement. This is remarkable in that it is his 7th transition since mid-August. The nursing home is only a couple of miles away so I am able to visit him daily, have meals with him, take walks, do activities, etc. which is a wonderful blessing for both of us.
Also, although our Medicaid application has yet to be approved, both nursing homes have accepted the reduced amount we will be paying once approved, saving us thousands of dollars a month! So once again, thank you all for your prayer support to which God is responding to so mercifully.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
After successfully unblocking the drainage about a month ago, a new resident has blocked the same spot again. Should there be a high volume of rain water coming through, a flood will occur and my property is most likely going to be affected unless God intervenes. Please pray for God's intervention and help in the likelihood that parties involved are unwilling to unblock the drainage. Thank you.
Stites, MichaelPrevious Requests
While near a campfire, Michael's clothes caught on fire. He has serious burns—possible third degree—on the back of his legs and lower back. He would appreciate the prayers of the brethren.
Trout, AddiePrevious Requests
Addie has been through a great deal of emotional and physical distress over the past few years. She would very much appreciate your prayers that God will continue to give her what she needs to stay faithful to Him regardless of her circumstances. Thank you for your prayers on her behalf.
Vaghi, NaomiPrevious Requests
Naomi thanks the brethren for their prayers for her recovery. Tests show that there is no indication of anything wrong with her organs. She has some remaining fluid on her lungs, though, which could be from recent severe bronchitis. Naomi’s heart rhythm is now normal but she is taking medication for her low blood pressure. Medically, she was deemed fit to fly yesterday to see her son in Amsterdam.
Lee Vaghi writes,
My mom was moved from the CCU [Coronary Care Unit] to a general ward as she has responded well to treatment. If all goes well, and if the new batch of tests come back as the doctor hopes, she might be released within the next day or two. My mom really appreciates all the prayers and thoughts.
The Vaghi family of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, is asking for prayers for Naomi Vaghi. Naomi was admitted to the coronary care unit of the hospital yesterday after being unwell for some time. Please pray for Naomi's recovery, as well as for her family. Thank you.
