Prayer Requests

Hello everyone,
 
We have a prayer request from Penny for her brother Rick’s mother in law, Dorothy Shaw. Dorothy was taken to the Altoona Hospital Thursday morning with symptoms they believe to be a stroke. We have no further details but we ask that you pray for Dorothy’s wellbeing. Pray that she will get the treatment needed for this emergency and that she will make a full and complete recovery. Also pray for her family as they are obviously worried during this time. Pray for the Lord to comfort and heal.
 
We also received 2 prayer requests from Adena.
 
First George Beaner Sr. passed away Thursday night or early Friday morning. Please pray for his wife Shirley, their children, and grandchildren. Pray that they find peace and comfort at this difficult time.
 
The second request was for Bud Martin. He has a lot of fluid on his legs and is refusing to go to the doctor. His wife Dorothy is very concerned. Please pray that Bud will agree to see a doctor, that the swelling goes down, and that he has no discomfort. Also pray for Dorothy as she struggles to care for him.
 
Thank you.

Prayer Requests

Hi everybody,
We received a prayer request from Chris imler for her friend Darlene McNaughton. Darlene is suffering from shingles on her face. The disease has also been affecting her vision and eyes. We ask that you pray for Darlene to be relieved of this disease and it’s symptoms. We also ask that you pray for Darlene’s comfort as she waits for the symptoms to subside.
 
We also received a prayer request from Liz for her niece, and Steve McCreary’s granddaughter Amanda Sturgis. Amanda was taken to the Bedford hospital Wednesday evening with shortness of breath. They transferred her to Altoona hospital where they did a catherization Thursday evening. We ask that you would pray  Amanda would be well enough to come home as soon as possible and whatever was causing her symptoms was not serious.
 
Liz shared that Amanda’s sister Erica Miller is in the Pittsburgh hospital having an infusion for a continuing chronic illness. And finally, Liz shared that Sherry Muir suffered a nose bleed while at work today, she passed out and was admitted to the hospital as well. We ask that you lift each of these women up in prayer as they are all suffering some medical situation that God can take control of and heal. I ask that you pray for each by name, for their healing and their continued comfort. Also each of these women have been a part of our church in the past, pray that their family’s are comforted and that God’s peace will descend upon them in this time.
 
Thank you.
