Share Your Prayer Requests

God calls us to come to Him in prayer instead of being anxious and worrying (Philippians 4:6). Right now, it’s easy for all of us to be anxious and worry. Instead, let’s come together today to share our requests and pray for each other.

Prayer Requests

Trois


Please pray for a good friend, Trish, who has just received a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Please pray for her and her husband, two children, and two grandchildren.

Angeline


Job finances and my relationship with Christ

Tony


I had a test last week and was informed today by my urologist that I have a low-risk prostate cancer. I am scheduled to see him next week to discuss my options concerning any treatment at this time since it is low-risk cancer. Please pray that the Holy Spirit guides me to the right decision to make at this time. Thank you, Tony.

Tom & Mary Lou


Finally, we are getting answers to Tom’s health issues that have plagued us for a number of years. PTL there are (6) issues, but (2) of greater importance. First, there is vestibular schwannoma. This is a typically benign brain tumor located on the nerve between the left ear and the brain. A brain MRI is scheduled for Sept. 29th. Second, and most serious, is the diagnosis of amyloidosis. This is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose. This is a “rogue” protein that attached to any organ or nervous system and causes it to stop working. doctors believe it is type “AL” amyloidosis. There is concern it is in the heart and a heart biopsy is scheduled for July 29th. We meet with the doctor on Aug. 11th to discuss treatment and the future. The disease has no cure. Thank you, Tom and Mary Lou.

John


Please pray for my wife to come to understand that God is triune in nature and to have a revelation of who God is. Please pray that I should be an example in leading her to the truth.

Jeff


I am requesting prayer for my 3-year-old nephew who was admitted to the ICU and is on a ventilator. He has internal bleeding that the doctors cannot seem to stop. They are not sure what is causing it at this time. Thank you.

Andy


Praise that my father and step-mom were able to visit from CT this past weekend, and during that time, that I was prompted by questions from them that allowed me to share the grace of God through Jesus Christ with them. Prayers that the words I spoke were Spirit-led and that they help plant the seeds for God to nurture and grow Jesus in their hearts.

Andy


Please pray for 8-year-old Declan and father Josh who just lost their mom and wife, Rebecca to a lung disease that took her while she awaited a transplant donor. This family is very important to one of our members, Linda, who helped raise Declan from the time he was 7 months old. We don’t know if the family knows Jesus, but we pray that Rebecca came to know Him prior to passing and that God uses this difficult trial as a way to bring Josh and Declan closer to Him.

Carol


I made a general call-out via Sugar Island website to any woman who’d like to join a non-denominational, non-political Bible study. 7 responded, 3 additional indicated they’d join me this upcoming Saturday. Of course please pray the Lord’s will for me and those He’d like to be part of this opportunity. Sure am hopeful I’m not sitting here all alone Saturday morning with a plate full of cookies and coffee at the ready.

Grace Powell Church


Pray for one of our former pastors, Jeff and his wife Sherry have tested positive for COVID-19, and are undergoing the sickness.

Sandy


Pray for ESL couple Jose and Kary from Mexico. Kary’s mother, who lives in Mexico City, passed away early this morning (Friday). Pray for God’s comfort and peace. Because of the bans on travel and the enormous cost of airfare, it appears that Kary will not be able to go for the funeral. She has been very sick since January (perhaps COVID before we were even aware of COVID). Then her uncle who lived in Chicago died of COVID about a month and a half ago. Jose and Kary have been attending online services, were involved in GPS, and also attended the online Prayer Meeting and ESL Zoom classes.

Leslie


We made the decision Sunday to take Kevin’s mom Dorothy out of assisted living because she was in bad decline. We have brought her to our home to die surrounded by her family. They would not allow us in the facility. We are not sure how long she has but she is fading away daily. Please pray for a peaceful home going.

Chris


Please remember our children in Nepal during the COVID crisis. These children have been connected to our church since 2015. Food security is a huge issue during the Nepali government quarantine. Pray that our Brother BuddiMan and his team can continue to care for these children and impact their families and communities for Jesus.

Jeff


My cousin’s husband (28) is suffering from an unknown illness (tested negative twice for COVID). His name is Kurt. Pray for physical healing and wisdom for doctors.

Debbie


Our good friend, John, has brain cancer and had a seizure this week. He’s been confused and dizzy. Please pray for continued grace for him and his family. Pray he can continue to be joyful and a light for Jesus.

Jeff


Pray for Nate! He is the son of a former staff member who is experiencing congestive heart failure and is septic.

Hayley


I have just graduated from nursing school – we were able to graduate early due to the need of nurses in our country now. I am overly anxious about taking my board exams (nclex). My prayer is that my trust rests in the Lord. That I believe the will of my life may be to love Christ more and not just pass a test. Praying that one, I do pass, but two, in this season of studying and taking the exam that I will not be fearful and anxious and trust that He will protect and prodive for me through my test anxiety.

Debbie


My mom has dementia and lives in a nursing home. I haven’t seen her for 6 weeks – I usually visit her every other day. It’s been really hard wondering how she’s doing, and even worse wondering if she’s thinking we don’t care about her. Also worrying that she’ll forget me.

Nathan


For my safety and ongoing strength, as I’ll be traveling to Seattle, starting late next week. I’ll be on a team running Battelle’s mask decontamination system that is there. The work shift is 12 hrs/day, every day, for 3 weeks. Prayer request for Jen who is working form home and won’t have my help with the kids. We have a young woman we know, who is going to come and stay at our house and help during this time, and that is a positive experience.

Amanda


I am still going into an office setting with 15 co-workers. I need prayer for safety and healthy coworkers. Also my friend Tracy fell in the grocery store and injured herself pretty badly.

Johnny


To become positive as we disciple to new believers and to reinforce our faith to those in fear.

Jeff


Please pray for the family of Konrad (21 years old) who took his life Wednesday. Specifically pray for the parents, Jim and Randi, and his sister and husband, Kelsey and Dan.

Julia


Please pray for my staff at the James Cancer Hospital who are scared that they will get COVID-19 or take it home to family. In this time of saving PPE for our front line staff, my staff who are nurse practitioners/doctors who are not on front line but feel very unprotected in the public caring for cancer patients. Please pray that they trust our leadership as well as the CDC and that decisions being made are not to put them in harm’s way but to help those taking care of the sickest patients. Thank you.

Tyler


Pray for my wife who is in her third trimester of pregnancy and still working as a hospital pharmacist, as well as my young son who has had his battles iwth repiratory ilness this year. This COVID mess has us praying excessively for everybody, but especially for mom, our unborn child, and our young son. We are choosing faith over fear, but do appreciate your extra prayers. God bless.

Missionaries


Please pray for our missionaries and ministry partners who are at work around the world. Countries have shut borders and issued even more severe stay home mandates that the United States has which makes life and ministry difficult. Some of our missionaries work in areas affected more than others but all are in good spirits and eager to get back to their normal routine. Pray that as many of these countries are on lockdown that they can continue to be a light in the community in which they serve and that this temporary struggle will yield everlasting fruit.

David


We are starting to have increasing numbers of COVID positive patients at my medical center. The team I lead is on the frontline of patient care. Please pray I lead them in such a way that I minimize their risk while maintaining the same level of patient care. Please pray that God will have His hand on me, my team, and all healthcare workers to sustain us during this time.
