Laura-Karen Clearly writes,
We went out grocery shopping after sunset, and when we were leaving the Walmart parking lot onto Kings Highway, the car suddenly lit up the ‘check engine light’ and proceeded to die on us. We had to be towed back to the hotel [where we are keeping the Feast] and now need to find a way to get the car running again. Prayers and expert mechanical help are deeply appreciated.
Finklea, Donnie (77)Previous Requests
Clyde Finklea is asking for your prayers for his brother Donnie, 77. Yesterday Donnie had a seizure and was taken to the emergency room, where the doctors discovered a cyst or tumor on the left side of his brain. Tomorrow they will perform surgery for a biopsy in order to determine if the cyst or tumor is malignant. Clyde writes that he is "asking the brethren for prayers for God’s compassion and mercy on him and our family."
Marcos is thankful for the prayers of the brethren on his behalf, and for a very positive meeting with his neurosurgeon. The doctor said that the results show that "the previously demonstrated ovoid focus of marrow signal abnormality in one of the vertebral body extending to the pedicle has decreased considerably in prominence since the previous imaging. No bony destruction is identified. No definite evidence of metastatic disease is seen. No new adverse feature identified."
Marcos also reports that other issues concerning the vertebra in the lumbar region are also beginning to heal, and the doctor recommended low impact exercise to strengthen the muscles and further healing of the bones.
Leeson, MarionPrevious Requests
Marion Leeson, a church of God member, is asking for your prayers for her daughter, who had cataract surgery yesterday. However, there are complications and the doctor is working on her eye again. Marion does not have all the details, but knows her daughter needs God’s healing and His mercy. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Myers, KimPrevious Requests
Please continue to pray for Kim Myers, who has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma. He truly appreciates the many cards and calls, and most of all the prayers, on his behalf.
Sagen, AlanRound Rock, Texas
Alan is back at the care facility, unharmed and doing well. Thank you for your prayers; Regina appreciates them very much.
Regina Sagen requests prayers for her husband, Alan, who has wandered away from the memory care facility where he has been living due to his advanced Alzheimer's Disease. Emergency responders are out looking for him now. Please pray that he will be found quickly and in good condition. Please pray also for Regina and her peace of mind. Thank you.
Sakala, BupeLusaka, Zambia
Please pray for Bupe who has been held at immigration due to a one-year ban she was given in 2016 when attending the Feast. At this time she was not given enough days for the Feast period. This ban should have expired in 2017, and she has since traveled to South Africa twice. We need God's intervention for her to be allowed to proceed to the Feast in Durban, South Africa.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
Despite submitting documentation after documentation, no training jobs have been approved before the Feast. This puts me in a precarious situation physically and spiritually. Please pray that I may have the spiritual ability to endure the impact of my work situation. Please also pray for the safety of my home while we are away for the Feast as I've not been able to implement any measures.
Santos, RebeccaPrevious Requests

Santos, RichardPrevious Requests
The Santos family is very pleased to report that Richard is now in training for the specific job they were praying for. Thank you for your prayers!
Scott, GloriaPrevious Requests
Gloria Scott is asking for your prayers regarding her health as well as the health of her children. In addition, she would like prayers for God's guidance concerning her finances. Thank you in advance.
Snow, ValeriePrevious Requests
Phyllis Ford is asking for prayers for her sister, Valerie Snow. Several years ago she had a brain tumor removed and has had medical issues ever since. At this time she is in great pain in her back and legs, caused by water on her spine. She cannot sleep, walk or sit without pain. She is currently waiting for her neurosurgeon to schedule surgery. She also has a small tumor at the top of her spine which is to be removed within the same surgery. Please pray that Valerie can get relief from the pain that keeps her in tears most days. Thank you all.
Wilhelm, TracyPrevious Requests
Tracy Wilhelm writes,
My sister has been struggling for months with what we thought were just extreme allergies, but after her visit with an allergy doctor today, he is thinking it might be mastocytosis. If malignant, it could mean a prognosis of a 5-year life expectancy at best. There is no cure as it's a form of leukemia. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated, my brethren, for a negative blood test result, but if this is God's will, please pray for God's guidance and comfort while we go through the next steps.
