Please pray for my mother, Shirley Worrell. She is in "active transition" to dying. We are at peace that she knows Jesus as Lord and Savior. Please pray for a peaceful passing and our family as we go through this. I am also praising Our Lord and Savior for providing abundantly more than we could ask for kind and loving caregivers and hospice. Thank you.

I need the Church to please pray that I recover my box full of recorded Mini DV's with sentimental Church memories that had been stolen out of my relatives Car since January. I pray I get them in whatever way I possibly can. Whether I buy them from the thrift shop, on Ebay or from the person that has them or from someone that took them from out of the recycling bin that's curious about what's on the Mini DV Tapes. Cause I can't believe that person threw them away. I know this might be a pointless prayer but please try and pray cause it's hurting me that I do not have these Tapes. Please pray that I recover these sentimental memories as swiftly as possible. The Most High is my only hope. Thanks in advance.

Please pray for my friend Donna. She has multiple medical problems and has not been able to sleep lately. Please pray that her doctor will be able to determine what is going on so she can get some rest. The lack of sleep is causing anxiety.

Also please pray for Mac - he has blood cancer and is undergoing chemo

Cathy also has blood cancer and unless she can qualify for a bone marrow transplant is terminal. Please pray for her.

Please pray that parts that are on backorder will arrive so that my car can be returned as soon as possible.

My car was involved in a hit and run accident on Feb. 14th and there is still no completion date in sight. This is causing me considerable financial concern as insurance only covers car rental for 30 days.

Your prayers are appreciated.

Pray for Brian & Katherine they need someone to come to their house and watch their infant child who has downs.They both decided and made a choice for Katherine to go back to work 3 days a week and Brian works from home.God give them wisdom and place the right person to watch their baby.At the moment a family member is watching her now does no mind but he does not want to make this a every week thing he too has a job.I pray that they will not take advantage of him and make every effort and be diligent in finding someone.At this moment he has to work his schedule around the days Katherine works.This family member is always helping out family and friends and I know there are times they take him for granted.They may not even be trying to find anyone and will just have him do this every week.They made their choice and it looks like they are making him their choice.Pray God will send someone of his choosing to watch their daughter.
