Biles, ClaudePrevious Requests
Jerry wants you to know that the doctors have said his bother Claude's condition is "hopeless" and that without God's miraculous intervention Claude's death is imminent. So Jerry is requesting your fervent prayers for God's mercy for His brother and his family during this difficult time. Also Jerry requests your most fervent prayers for his mother, who is in a great deal of pain, finding the idea of Claude's death overwhelming. Jerry very much appreciates your prayers for the whole Biles family and especially for his brother and his mother.
Jerry reports that his brother’s condition is much worse. Claude is now in the hospital ICU on a respirator and in an induced coma. Jerry would very much appreciate your continued prayers on Claude’s behalf.
Jerry Reports that Claude is not doing well. The doctors have informed him his brother not only has an upper respiratory tract infection but Pneumonia, Bronchitis and a very bad case of the flu. Please continue to keep both Claude and Jerry in your prayers, as Jerry needs to make some important decisions concerning caring for his brother once he is well enough to get out of the hospital. Jerry appreciates all of your prayers.
Jerry Biles is requesting your prayers for his brother Claude, who is now in the hospital with an upper respiratory tract infection. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Fletcher, DanYork, South Carolina
The Fletchers write,
We all want to thank everyone for their prayers. Dan's heart catheter procedure went well. No medication was given to aid in pumping the heart because they believed it would do more harm than good. Any further action regarding a heart pump or transplant are on the back burner unless his condition were to decline any further. We'd still like to ask for continued prayers for his breathing, occasional nausea, and finding the right path naturally to aid in his healing. Again, thank you to all.
Holley, LawrencePrevious Requests
I was at the gastrologist yesterday and he prescribed a medication to try that will be available from the pharmacy this afternoon. Also, I have a MRI scheduled for the 27th of this month. Above all, I give thanks to our Great God because, after the assistant took my vitals, I realized that this has been the calmest that I have been in a few years. I thank you always for your prayers.
McClure, JimPrevious Requests
We are saddened to report that my Uncle Jim died this evening due to what we think was some sort of blood clot. He made it through so much in terms of chemotherapy and the other medical treatments, we prayed he was on the mend. Our family is so thankful for your prayers and loving support. We look forward to God’s Kingdom!
Montgomery, JoshuaPrevious Requests
I was approved for FMLA for my job, but it may require more doctor visits. He prescribed me medication for the headaches, but is a little concerned because some of the headaches wake me up from sleep. He wants me to keep a journal of all my headaches for the month and try to find what triggers them. Once that happens, we can go from there. Depending upon all these factors, I may need an MRI at a later date. I want to thank everyone for the prayers, concern and letters.
Mottram, SheilaPrevious Requests
Sheila is home from the hospital and is no longer bleeding internally. However, her blood counts—particularly her iron levels—are extremely low, and the doctors will be trying to address that. Please continue to pray for Sheila's recovery. Thank you.
Sheila is suffering from an upper G.I. bleed as well as congestive heart failure. Please pray for God's intervention and healing. Thank you.
Please pray for Sheila Mottram, who was rushed to the hospital last evening. A diagnosis is not yet available, but she was being given blood transfusions. Thank you for your prayers.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
It has been a hard 7 days with heavy rain every other day. There is great damage to our road due to the volume of water, and yet another storm has begun. Please pray that, by God's mercy, we may survive this one. Thank you.
Simkins, VernaPrevious Requests
Verna Simkins is asking for your prayers for her brother, Art, who is suffering from congestive heart failure. The doctors have drained fluid from his lungs, but he will be in the hospital for a while. Thank you in advance.
Stites, MichaelPrevious Requests
While Michael's doctors told him that his burns would be about 20% healed by this time, the burns are already 60% healed! What were 9-10 inch severe 3rd degree burns are now only about the size of a silver dollar.
Michael would appreciate your prayers concerning a couple of other matters. One is that he has been developing cataracts in his eyes. The other is a complicated problem with a piece of property and its title, and Michael's inability to do anything with the land for legal reasons. Thank you for your prayers.
Waranowski, JanePrevious Requests
Jane Waranowski is asking for your prayers concerning surgery for cancer that is scheduled for January 31. Thank you in advance.
Williams, PaulettePrevious Requests
We are saddened to report the death of Paulette Williams this morning. Thank you for your prayers on her behalf. Please continue to pray for Carney during this time of loss and grief. Thank you.
Paulette fell this morning. She does not have any broken bones, but does have extensive bruising. Her blood pressure is also extremely low. Carney's assessment is that she will not last more than a day of so. Carney is also in need of prayer for strength and energy as the extra care of the previous weeks and months has greatly depleted him. Thank you.
Please continue to pray for Paulette and Carney. Paulette is suffering from anxiety, and the nurse who saw her yesterday said she doesn't know if Paulette will make it through the weekend. Thank you.
