Prayer Request

We received a couple prayer requests.
 
First for Leslie Castro, her PIC line pulled out sometime through the night and apparently lost a good bit of blood. They are currently moving her back to ICU and giving her units of blood.

Jane Folk, Arlene’s cousin, is getting radiation treatments for her cancer. The doctors have estimated that she has about 6 months left so they will be most likely pacing her on hospice.

Marsha asked us to pray for their friend Perry Miller from Altoona. He has been bleeding since last Saturday and they cannot locate where the bleed is. They have given him at least three units of blood and if there is no improvement by Monday they will be sending him to Pittsburgh.

I am asking that you pray for each of these people who are in life threatening situations. Please pray that the Lord is at work in each of their lives. Pray that they know Jesus as Lord and Savior and that the Lord would place his healing touch upon each of them and heal the ailments that they are dealing with. Pray that the Lord will reduce any pain they may be experiencing, that He will comfort them in these days and that their families will have peace in knowing the Lord is in control.

Thank You.



Prayer Request

We received a prayer request from Liz Miller for her brother Joe McCreary. Joe was experiencing extremely high blood pressure this morning and was taken to Conemaugh hospital for treatment. At this time the blood pressure doesn’t seem to be improving.

We are asking you pray for Joe; that whatever is causing this high blood pressure can be identified and he is able to get relief. Please pray that the Lord’s healing touch would come upon him and lower the pressure safely. Pray also for his family in this time. Pray that they will be calmed by the touch of the Holy Spirit and that they will be comforted until Joe is able to make a complete recovery and return home.

Thank You



Prayer Request

We received a prayer request from Randy Imler for his brother in law Joe Shives. Joe was having difficulty breathing yesterday while on a stay in Rehoboth Beach. They took him to the hospital and are currently keeping him in a medically induced coma because his lungs are not functioning properly. He is currently in critical condition.

We ask that you pray for Joe. Please pray that he would be healed and fully recover from this situation. Pray that the medical team would have the wisdom and knowledge to identify and treat Joe. Pray that the Lord will watch over the family and that He will calm their fears, give them courage for each new day, and provide the peace that only comes from the Lord.

Thank You



Prayer Request

We received a prayer request from Arlene for Jim Miller. Jim went to the doctor for some medical concerns yesterday. The Doctor suspects a diagnosis but we find it is better to pray over it. So we are asking that you pray for Jim, that this issue is not as severe as the doctor suspects; pray that Jim would recover fully and quickly of the symptoms that he has; and, pray that Jim would improve with his other medical ailments. Pray for his well being and continued health.

Also continue to remember the Miller and Thomas Families after the passing of Kitty’s sister, Betty Thomas. Pray for continued strength from the Lord, pray for comfort as they mourn, and pray for Joy and Peace in each new day.

Thank You.
