Prayer Requests

We were asked to put Randy Imler’s brother Rudy on our prayer chain. Rudy is experiencing extreme confusion and he and his family really need our prayers at this time. We ask that you would pray first for Rudy physically to receive healing for whatever is causing the confusion. Please pray that he will cooperate with the medical staff and allow them to treat him with the medications that will help him get back on his feet and return home as soon as possible. Also pray for his family. Pray that they will be comforted in this time and that the Lord would support them in this time of confusion and difficulty. Pray that in this Christmas season that the Lord would give them a sense of peace and joy until Rudy is able to return to health and home.

We also received a prayer request for a young man named Matt Eckman. He was unloading a coal truck early this morning when his truck came into contact with a power line and Matt was electrocuted. He was taken to the hospital where medical staff is trying to get his heart regulated and treating the severe burns on his hands. We ask that you pray that Matt makes a full recovery and that the Lord heals him completely. Pray also that the Lord would watch over and comfort him and his family during this Christmas Season and the days to come.

Thank You



Prayer Request

We received a prayer request for Amber Clark. Amber is the fiancé of young Dave Musselman. Amber is pregnant and has been on bed rest the past few weeks. Yesterday she was taken to the hospital in preterm labor; the baby is not due until January 26. Amber was later transferred to Conemaugh Memorial Hospital for better care.

We ask that you pray for this child to be delivered at the appropriate time and that it will be healthy. We also ask that you pray the Lord would be with Amber as she endures this. She must be having all kinds of worries and emotions. Pray that she would remain healthy as well and that both baby and mother would be able to come home healthy and safe.

Thank You.

Prayer Requests

Hi Everybody,
 
First, we would like to send out a prayer request for Kitty Miller. Kitty had surgery on her sinuses this past Monday. We are asking that you pray that the pain and discomfort would subside quickly; that the surgery would be effective and that she would heal and be able to get back to her normal self. Pray also for her comfort as she recovers. 
 
We received a prayer request for Chet Dietrich’s wife, Nancy; friends of Kelly and Adena’s from treasure Lake. Nancy has had several strokes over the past month, and today she had a stroke and heart attack together. According to doctors, it is only a matter of time until she passes. We are asking you to pray for Nancy to receive her healing. We also ask that you would lift up Chet as he stays by her side. Please pray that Chet would be strengthened and comforted as he watches and waits. Pray that the load that Chet has been carrying over these past few weeks would be lifted off of his shoulders and his final hours with Nancy would be precious. Pray that God’s will would be done and that His good would be revealed in the days to come.
 
We also have a prayer request for Randy Imler’s brother Rudy. Rudy was taken to the VA’s Urgent care Sunday morning with some problems after his heart surgery last week. Urgent care decided to send him by ambulance to the hospital in Pittsburgh. They believe that he is retaining fluids and may have an infection. We ask that you would lift him up in your prayers that the infection is able to be treated quickly and easily and that he will heal quickly as well.
 
Thank you.
