Prayer Request

We received word that Karl Kaufman passed away through the night on Monday. At his request there was be no viewing and was buried Tuesday. We are asking that you pray for the family in this time and that you would lift them up in the days to come. Pray for a comfort that only the Lord can provide, pray for a healing to the hearts that are breaking, and pray for a peace and joy that comes from knowing the Lord.

We also received a prayer request from Ronnie Bolman for one of his coworkers family, the family of Roy Hetrick. Roy had chest pains, went to the hospital and they began open heart surgery but due to complications he passed away. Pray also for this family to be comforted, pray for healing and a peace from the Lord. Pray that in this time the Lord would enter into their presence and make himself known.

Thank You

Prayer Requests

We received a prayer request from Juleen Damjanovich for a friend named Jimmy Brown, A few weeks ago he went in for kidney stones.  During the scan they found lung cancer.  Today he had surgery on his lung where the surgeon had to remove part of the lobe.  He is in recovery right now from a 5 hour surgery.  The doctor believes the cancer is completely removed; however, Jimmy is still in need of our prayers.  

We ask that you pray for Jimmy to make a complete recovery. Pray also that the cancer is indeed all removed and that in the days to come that his treatment will be a complete success. Pray for him to be able to tolerate the pain and side effects of the treatment. Also pray for his family to be comforted and at peace with Jimmy’s progress. Pray also that they may draw closer to the Lord during this time.

We also received two more prayer requests, the first is for Margaret Miller’s son who is being sent for a CT Scan of his lungs. Pray that the scan does not reveal any serious issues and any issues found are able to be treated quickly. Pray for God’s hand of protection and healing to be upon him.

Lastly, we received a request for Mary Beegle, Mary is a homebound person who attended a few years back. She will be having surgery to replace the battery in her pacemaker on October 11, pray for her to get through this procedure without any complications.

Thank You

Prayer Request

We received a prayer request for the niece of Ashley and Jimmy Endress; her name is Taylor. Taylor is a 5 year old girl who suffered 3rd degree burns to her arms and hand after trying to retrieve something from the microwave on Sunday evening. She was at the burn center in Pittsburgh and had surgery Tuesday morning. They used pig skin to cover her wounds. Taylor goes back next week to evaluate if she needs a skin graft.

We ask that you pray for this child; that she would be healed and that the pain she is experiencing is able to easily be controlled. Also pray for the surgical team and medical staff who will be caring for her to be able to do whatever is necessary to help her heal as quickly as possible and without scarring. Pray also for the parents and family of Taylor as they worry about her wellbeing and her recovery.

Thank You.
