The worship team (Prayer Warriors) have been praying for me because my white cell count is very low. Blood work shows it is still low. Please pray that the test I get next Thursday will be negative for cancer.

Please pray my friend Susan Van Wyk's husband, sons, family and friends. The world will be a little darker without her.

My son previously worked as a welder and in warehousing. He served 4 years in prison for a felony (the felony was unplanned and unintentional which is why he served only 4 years). Now he has not been able to find work anywhere. He is a Christ follower and we pray together about this.

Also, his girlfriend is homeless and her family does more to hurt her than help her. She is currently living with me but I don't actually have room in my apartment for her. We are trying to find an inexpensive place for her to live as she is on disability. She also knows Jesus and reads her Bible pretty much daily.

We are all three trying to live by faith, but this journey is difficult and depressing, as it has gone on for months. Thank you for praying for us.

My nephew would not plea bargain and admit to something he did not do. That took him to a jury trial that sentenced him for 10 years. His name is Taylor and he’s a good person. He’s now in York County prison awaiting sentencing on 12/16 when he will go to State Prison and possibly be killed by other inmates for the type of charge. It is just plaguing our family with worry. I too have guilt because I told him never to admit to something he didn’t do. I told him to be honest and pray. Would everyone who reads this please pray for justice for him? Thank you with all my heart.

Please pray for my husband and me as we are expecting our first child in four weeks. He recently found out his second job is in jeopardy and we need that job so I can quit to stay home with my daughter. I can go back to work but I am a teacher and won’t have a job until next year. We don’t have anyone to watch our daughter in the town we live in as we don’t have family near us. I would need to find child care. Please pray for a miracle and that God finds a way to help us stay afloat. I’m worried sick. This year has been so incredibly hard. Please pray for us. I’m trying to be strong but it’s been very hard. Idk what to do at this point. I feel completely helpless. Please pray for my grandpa as we found out he has colon cancer. Pray God would shower him with love and hope and help to heal him of his pain.

Please pray for my friend whose son will not speak to him or forgive him for a deep hurt that my friend caused which broke their family. My friend is suffering deeply and has asked for his son's forgiveness many times. Please pray that God will open all of their hearts to forgiveness and begin to heal their relationship.

Please also pray for my own son who is struggling with severe depression and hopelessness. Pray that he will cling to the tiniest bit of hope, take his medication to treat his depression, continue with counseling here at the church, and take a tiny step toward crossing the line of faith so that he can be saved.

My oldest son Kane has been ill since February off and on. He is an essential worker. My son is on the autism spectrum and has been through so much. He is married now, working 2 jobs, and going to college. My son doesn’t believe what I believe any more because he has been hurt by people in the Christian community. He still asks me to pray, so I know that God still is in his heart and loving him. Please pray for my son. Thank you.
