I have been struggling with alcohol abuse on and off. I was extremely convicted by today's sermon. Thank you Pastor Garret. I have not been treating my body as a temple for the Holy Spirit and allowed the patterns of the world to cause me to wander from God. I am so grateful for your prayers!

My wife's friend, Bonnie, called informing that her daughter, Casey, has some lumps in her breasts. She is had some testing done on Friday 8/14 to include a mammogram. We are asking that you pray that the lumps are not cancerous, and that Casey would find the love of God through this. Casey is only 25 and is in need of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Pray also for Bonnie to see God's mighty hand working in her daughter's life. And to bring Bonnie some comfort and strength to walk along side her daughter through this.

My sister, Laura, had a left knee replacement surgery, June 2019. In September it had to be repaired. Then June 2020, due to a bad infection, she had another procedure done. Now we found out there is another infection, and the whole knee replacement has to be taken out, spacer put in, and another surgery in a few months

The doctor is not sure what the cause is. She is emotionally and physically drained. Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate it so much.

Please pray that God guides the surgeon's hands in the surgery and that Paul, and our two daughters, have the peace that passes all understanding and is totally trusting of God during this season.

I am asking for prayers for my family. My husband and I have been back and forth with doctors on infertility. Between blood tests, reproductive tests, and surgeries, nothing has yielded positive results. According to the doctors, our next & final option is IVF. We have been praying and my family has been praying. He knows what we desire. So I am asking you for prayers to speak life over my family. To speak life over my husband. God hears our prayers and he is a miracle worker. Please pray for us as we continue to keep faith that he will work a miracle in us without having to do IVF.

Please pray for my brother. He just turned 59 yrs old. Last Saturday he had a ruptured brain aneurysm. They did immediate surgery. He is in a neurological hospital in AZ. He spoke to my mom several days afterwards and said he continues to have pain in his neck. Yesterday they drained fluid and they found mild blood spasms in the blood vessels. He knows Jesus but before the aneurysm rupture he was not walking with the Lord. Thank you for your prayers.

This is a follow-up to an earlier request for prayers for Mark Leitzinger: He eventually ended up at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and was finally diagnosed with Multiple Systems Atrophy. This is not a curable disease and treating the symptoms is the normal protocol. He was discharged yesterday and is coming home for many forms of therapy and ongoing home care. Please continue to pray for his wife Amy and daughter Hayley as they start this journey into a new chapter of life. We are all grateful for your love and support for this family. Their strong faith continues to provide them with a firm foundation. Thanks!
