Prayer Requests

Please pray for Susanne's friend Tiffanie in North Carolina and her family. This week, Connor, the child of Tiffanie's cousin Christy, died of SIDS on his first birthday. Please pray for Christy and her family, and especially for Tiffanie as Christy is staying with her as they make arrangements for Connor's burial instead of for his first birthday party.

In addition, Tiffanie's cousin, Mike, aged 27, has been diagnosed with inoperable stage 4 lymphoma. He'll be undergoing chemotherapy, but his prognosis doesn't look promising.

Please pray for Christy, Mike, and all of Tiffanie's family during these difficult days. May these tragic circumstances draw them closer to the God who loves them with an everlasting love!!

Prayer Requests and Praise

George S., whose cancer has spread from his bladder to several other places in his body, is undergoing daily radiation at this time, and is in extreme pain. The pain medications are doing little to offer him relief. George lives in Georgia with his wife and two teens; he will be seeing his oncologist on Friday. Pray for pain relief and for shrinkage of his tumors.

Prayer and Praise:
Bishop B. writes us:
"Never underestimate the power of prayer. Cathie is still undergoing chemotherapy and will probably continue on it for quite a while. It is working as the tumor in her lung has decreased in size by about forty percent. The lesions in her brain for the most part have disappeared except for three or four which have increased in size by a bit. The Docs are keeping a watch on these. She is feeling pretty good these days although she is quite tired which goes along with the chemo. The oncologist says there is no cure for lung cancer but we are praying for a remission to occur. I would ask you all to continue to keep her in your prayers as that is the best treatment she can have. +Richard. (retired but working on a new job of caregiver)."

Thank you for joining us in prayer and praise!

Prayer Update: Cathie B.

We just heard from Cathie B. for whom we've been praying for healing as she has stage 4 lung cancer.

The lesions on her brain have decreased or disappeared with the radiation treatment! The remainder are likely to disappear. Please keep praying as they treat the primary cancer.

Prayer for Laurie S.

Laurie Steinberg went to be with God a little after 8:00 on Friday, September 23. Please continue to pray for Allison's family and Laurie in his new life.

I AM the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord:
he that believeth in me, though he were dead,
yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and
believeth in me, shall never die.

O GOD, whose mercies cannot be numbered;
Accept our prayers on behalf of the soul of
thy servant departed, and grant him an
entrance into the land of light and joy, in
the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus
Christ our Lord.

Father Keith Acker, SSC
