Fenwick, ShellyPrevious Requests
Shelly writes: "I want to thank my brethren and for their prayers - God has heard and answered! Shortly after the prayer request went out, about 80% of my pain had gone away, I was still dealing with migraines (although they were lighter) until this past week. I had severe neck pain and migraines for 5 weeks straight!
I am praising God for my healing, and thank you all for praying on my behalf."
Holley, LawrencePrevious Requests
The laser procedure to clear the build-up behind the lens implant in the right eye is scheduled for March 10. The procedure for the left eye is TBD. Looking forward to clear vision once again. Thank you for all of your prayers.
Howard, Brenda (67)Previous Requests
Please pray for Brenda Howard, 67, a member of the United Church of God in Tennessee. Brenda has been missing since Saturday (2/27/21); she left home for Sabbath services but never arrived. Her phone is not working and there has been no contact from her since she left her house. Her husband, Bob, reported her missing to the police, who have had no success in pinging her phone's location. Bob and many brethren have driven the roads she would have traveled on her way to church, and a countywide search is now in effect. Your prayers for Brenda's safe return would be appreciated. Thank you.
Update: Brenda was found in her car in a river. An autopsy will be performed on Monday to determine the cause of death. Please remember Bob and the local congregation in your prayers.
Lewis, LeviPrevious Requests
Lois writes: "First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has prayed for my husband Levi Lewis. But he passed away Monday from a heart attack. Please pray that God will work a miracle financially, emotionally, and physically for me. There are so many bills that insurance will not cover. Thank you and God bless you."
Lois Lewis is once again requesting your prayers on behalf of her husband Levi. Even though Levi improved following his heart surgery last October, he has been suffering thorough a great deal of pain from swelling that is associated with continuing heart problems, along with lung and kidney failure. Lois would very much appreciate your prayers that God will mercifully heal Levi's heart, lung and kidney problems and end his pain. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
McDermott, MariePrevious Requests
Marie is scheduled to have cataract surgery on March 11 and would appreciate your prayers. Thank you.

My father was given a brain flow test today, and they found no brain activity. He was declared dead at 2:21 PM. Josh and I will be driving to Maryland on Thursday morning to be with him, as he is an organ donor and will be kept on the ventilator until then. Thank you for your prayers on his behalf.
Please pray for Randy McIver (60), father of Heather Skidmore of Cary, North Carolina, and Josh McIver of Charlotte. Last night, he fell and struck his head on the side of a bathtub, causing him to lose consciousness and stop breathing. His roommate called 911, but by the time the paramedics arrived and got him downstairs, he had been without oxygen for over 40 minutes. He is currently in the ICU on a ventilator, and not responding to any external stimulus, nor can they detect any brain activity yet. Please pray for God's will to be done and for comfort and strength to his children. Thank you.
Quinn, Sean (56)Greensboro, North Carolina
These past two weeks have been filled with ER and ICU visits. It was discovered that Sean had sepsis, a blood infection. He was stabilized and he and I had our phone conversations. Thursday, while talking to my daughter, she received a call from the hospital to come in. She was with Sean for a few hours before he died at 12:33 am. It is with mixed feelings that I must tell you this. Sean had gone far astray for a long time. During this illness, he repeatedly told me he was so glad that God had allowed his situation to deteriorate because it was God who stepped in and rescued him. "God gave me my life back." I believe God saw a place Sean had come to, and brought it all to a conclusion. What more could a father ask for. All your concern and support has been invaluable. Let's all pray that God will heal the Church and grant us all the repentance of which we are ever in such desperate need as we anticipate the return of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.
Roemhild, VickyPrevious Requests
Vicky's neighbor Tim is having more tests done to see if there is a blockage in his colon. He is home, but having a lot of pain in his side. Thank you for your prayers.
Sakala, BupeLusaka, Zambia
Please pray for Bupe, who is feeling very weak and dizzy this evening. She has been unable to support herself and needs God's intervention, healing, and guidance on what to do. Thank you in advance.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
Please pray for my step-Dad, who has gone into hospital for an operation: That, by God's intervention, all may go well. Thank you.
Saxton, LorenNorth Augusta, South Carolina
Many may recall that in September of last year, Loren was hospitalized following a multitude of tiny strokes in his right brain. He recovered with few residuals and attended the Feast. However, in December, he suffered a return of symptoms indicating that strokes were once again occurring. Since then, his health has been gradually deteriorating. There is increased loss of sensitivity in his fingers and hands, his speech has been affected, he is experiencing serious cognitive decline, and the loss of taste that has plagued him since his brain surgery in 2018 has been greatly exacerbated. He is consuming very little food, and this lack of nutrition has resulted in considerable loss of body weight and physical stamina.
We would like to request prayers for healing of Loren’s present health status. We would also appreciate prayers for me as we navigate this trial together. We need faith, guidance, and much godly wisdom and understanding to cope with these life-changing circumstances. Thank you.
Smith, JanePrevious Requests
Ryan and Jenny McClure are requesting prayers on behalf of Jenny’s aunt, Jane Smith. Jane recently tested positive for COVID-19 and has been experiencing nausea and a fever over the past few days. She went to the emergency room today. Her family would appreciate your prayers on her behalf.
Thomas, JenniferPrevious Requests
My husband was just admitted to the emergency room for possible metals poisoning from his shop. While being looked over by one doctor already, they found an air bubble in his lung. It is not known if this is related to the other symptoms he’s been experiencing. I’d just like to ask for prayers on his behalf and that the doctors are able to find out exactly what is wrong, and that our family is guided through these next unknown steps. Thank you.
Your urgent prayers are requested for June. She writes,
Over the past few days, my blood pressure has been quite elevated and not responding to the meds I am on. I feel quite ill and would appreciate prayer for God's intervention on my behalf.
Tkaczyk, ThomasOntario, Canada
Please continue to pray for Thomas. His landlord's son has been given full authority over the property Thomas is renting (and has put thousands of dollars into), and has told Thomas he must move out by the end of the month. This puts Thomas in a significant bind, as he not only has two dogs that may complicate finding a new place, but he also will need a place for his wood working machinery that is the basis of his livelihood. Reasonably-priced rental properties anywhere near Thomas are hard to find, and he would appreciate your prayers for God to open a door for a suitable place, and for wisdom in following this new avenue in his life. Thank you.
