Church, Please pray for Mike Hutchins in Chiapas, MX. He started antibiotics for typhoid yesterday morning. Typhoid is a form of salmonella. He said he preached Sunday leaning on the pulpit,"sweating like a pig" from a fever. Its been 3-4 weeks of stomach issues and weakness, been increasingly worse. He is really thankful that the Lord has strengthened him this past week to function without stopping. Mike, Lori, and six of their kids will be driving up through MX to Colorado starting Sunday morning. It will be a several-day journey. Would you please pray for God’s protection and their preparation to leave? This morning specifically he asked for prayer to prepare at least one sermon today, outreach prep, and for tonight when he teaches at a school. He’s a fragile guy right now, but really joyful and thankful. Blessings to everyone! lori

Blessed church family, I ask for your support in prayer for me in the coming months as I struggle with the temptation toward worry. With the status of my job in the air and the possibility of a move looming, I struggle with trusting in God’s sovereignty at times. I know it to be true from Scripture but God is teaching me at a deeper level, which has become difficult. Pray for my perseverance in this trial, for my example to my family and for God’s glory. I know He hears the prayers of His saints and I am greatly encouraged by your support. Jonathan Rohde

She has had a series of medical complications and has been in and out of the ICU for nearly two years. Her condition is very serious and the the doctors are concerned. I pray that the Lord would relieve Lizzy of the horrible pain she is suffering and the bleeding will stop. I also pray for her family in all of this. I pray God will give the doctor’s wisdom in knowing how to stop the bleeding and quickly. She is only fifteen years old. Thank you, Ava

Dear Saints, Please pray for our son, Kamol. He is 34 years old and has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. He is currently at the hospital. Today he will be getting information on how they will proceed in removing the tumor and what that will entail. Kamol is not saved and his heart is hardened toward the Lord. Please pray that the Lord will soften his heart and remove the blinders from his eyes, and that Kamol would turn to the Lord and repent of his sin. This is the most important prayer for him. Please also pray that that the Lord God would have mercy and grace and would heal his body, as the Lord God shows his grace on the righteous and the unrighteous. Pray that the surgeons who operate on him will be able to remove the tumor from his brain and that with therapy, Kamol would return to as much of a normal life as possible. May the Lord God be glorified in all this. Thank you for your prayers. Tony and Manith

Dear Saints, Would you please cover my Uncle Harry and Aunt Claire in prayer? Uncle Harry is 90 years old and in the hospital and preparing to cross over into eternity. Please pray for both of their salvation and comfort. Also, please pray for my Stepmother Bette. She, too, is battling for her life. She has stage 4 cancer and is becoming extremely forgetful and has been very sick. Her heart towards our LORD has been hard all her life, yet at this late hour she seems to allow me to speak more of Him. Is He softening her heart or is she just trying to soften the sword that has been so devise in our family all these years? Thank you SO much for praying and all praise to Him who hears and is glorified in all! Love, Mali

Orenda had her thyroid cancer surgery Friday November 6th. It was successful, doctor felt that he removed all the cancer. He said there was an unusually large amount of cancer in her chest and neck area, the surgery was 8 hours not including getting her stapled up. He told us the cancer on the right side of her neck that had been visible on the outside had been as big as his fist. Cancer had wrapped itself around her vocal cords and he removed that successfully with out damaging them which was wonderful news. Cancer had wrapped itself around the nerve that goes to the trapezius muscle on her right side and that nerve had to be sacrificed. This means she will need to do physical therapy couple times a week for awhile, and her range of motion raising her arm above her head could be limited. Orenda is in a lot of pain and extremely uncomfortable. It hurts her to move her neck at all. She is on oxygen and that irritates her nose. She has 3 drain tubes in her chest area that have to be emptied. It hurts to swallow, though there is no physical damage to the inside of her throat (except from the intubation tube). By the end of the day she was eating mashed potatoes. She got up and walked down the hall 4 times yesterday. She has tingling and numbness in her face, feet, knees, and hands from the calcium deficiency, which will hopefully be corrected in the next few days. The staples in her incision look good, it is from her hairline behind her ears down around her neck in a perfect loop. We have already started buying lots of beautiful scarves for her to wear. Her neck is much smaller in diameter than it was, it’s shocking to realize that her neck was thick with cancer. Long term, Orenda will take calcium and a thyroid hormone replacement. She will have radio active iodine treatment to kill any residual thyroid cancer that may still be there, as the thyroid attracts iodine. This will be in 4 or 5 weeks. She will probably start physical therapy for her right arm in a week. If she feels unable to care for herself when she is discharged she will stay with her sister and her family. Thank you for your continued prayers for a quick and thorough recovery and complete use of her right arm.

Please pray for my step-grand daughter, Orenda. She goes into surgery Friday morning for 5 cancerous tumors around her thyroid gland. The surgery will last at least 6 hours and is considered very serious and dangerous. She is only 19 years old. Pray that the surgeons are thorough and precise and that she recovers very quickly. Thank you!

My niece Beckie’s heart stopped beating Saturday at 3:55pm. Please pray the comfort of Jesus would fill our hearts. (Matthew 5:4) and that the seeking of the one true living God would not end here. (Acts 17:27) Thank you brothers and sisters for upholding my family in prayer during this past week.

Nolie

02/19/2015
Beloved saints of our Lord Jesus Christ, Friday Beckie will under go neurological testing. She is currently still on life support, however, her body is showing signs of improvement. Not significantly, but some. The doctors have reduced the amount of drugs that have been helping her overcome withdrawal from heroine and her body seems to be doing okay, unlike yesterday where they needed to continue with a drug that paralyzes from neck down. We are all very uncertain as to what Friday test results will discover. And with the discovery, what desions will need to be made. Psalm 10:17 LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. Thank you for your love from all the family.

Nolie

02/16/2015
I just received a call that my niece Beckie overdosed this morning and is in ICU at St Anthony’s. This is all I know at this time. Please pray that the Lord would prepare me with words of hope in Christ Jesus.

Nolie

02/16/2015
Update on my niece Beckie-she may not have overdosed but injected a bad dose of heroin. Currently there is no brain function. Without a test, the doctor fears that her brain is dead. Her kidney and liver are failing, she has a very low heart beat, low blood pressure and is on life support. If she goes into cardiac arrest, the decision made is not to perform CPR. If she remains in this state for another 72-hours, they will do a neurological test to see how her brain is functioning. The doctor is not optimistic, she is very sick. If she recovers from this, she will likely have severe brain damage. The family is split with the hope of a miracle recovery and the others thinking it best to remove life support and let her go. All have left the hospital for the night. I held her unresponsive hand in mine, speaking in her ear the gospel message. She heard this same message as a young girl. Please ask our Lord Jesus to meet her need of salvation in Him.

Saints, Just came from the hospital. My Marcia is just spectacular! Thanks so much for your wonderful prayers! Surgery took half the time expected, she was sitting in a chair, laughing and enjoying her company, in very little pain! She had a gift basket with a Bible in it and wanted to pray! Tonight was the first time I ever heard my friend of 30 years pray. My heart is so full! Our Father is so tender and compassionate! You are so precious to labor over this heartache for me! Love, Mali

Dear Church Family This is a praise report. As you have been praying for Manith to get on full time with Cummins, great news! Manith got the job she applied for! Yeah! Praise the Lord!! But get this she also received a dollar more in wages! Isn’t that awesome? Our God is so good! We were content even if she didn’t get the job because He knows everything and His plan for us. If she didn’t get it then it would be best for her. But she got it. He opened the door for her to walk through. We did not try to bust it open in our own strength but we’re patient and waited on Him. He is so good!!!!! Isn’t our God great! He has heard our petitions and has answered. What an encouragement for all of us. We Love You, tony and manith

Dear saints. Hal and I sat with friends that used to be family to me while Vollena, the mom died on Sunday. Many in the family are unbelievers and it was tragic! Please pray for God’s drawing and comfort and for true salvation for all that are His that are affected by the grief and mourning over this loss. Please pray for us as we wish to hold out the light of life to them at the memorial on the 17th of October, that we would speak His truth boldly, honestly, urgently, and joyfully and great comfort and salvation will result. May the Lord richly bless you as you so faithfully serve Him. Love to you all, Mali

He was caught by the law in a secret sin and may even end up in prison for a short time. Apparently he said he wants to become a Christian now. I have not spoken with him yet but Savanna called me in tears telling me all that had happened and that even though a few months ago she doubted God even existed, she knew this was God. Please pray for both of their salvations. Thank you.

I would like to ask for prayer concerning my mother. After some tests were run it is apparent she has suffered an acute stroke on the right side of her brain earlier this week. It looks like the damage may be permanent and is now affecting her left side which is now very weak. She may not be going home anymore and now my family and I have to talk about assisted living. Pray that the peace of God and His comfort be on her. Pray also for wisdom in determining the right actions to be taken in this situation. Also pray for my sister who is also a care provider for my mother as she is also in the hospital. She is worried and stressed so much that she is having health problems. Please pray for us as well, as this is a very heavy burden.

Both, Sam and her children, need to feel God’s comfort and love. Please pray that I would be able to show her God’s love by actions and his word. She was brought up mormon, so she speaks of a god.

Joshua

08/07/2012
I would like to ask for the church to pray for a co-worker. She came to me yesterday in tears and said her husband sent her a text stating that he wants a divorce. When she got home he had taken most of his belongings, changed bank accounts, and essentially took everything. He told her, via text, that he wants her out of the house by a certain day....they are professing believers. She works part to full-time in an entry level position at Starbucks, and doesn’t know where she will end up. If the church could please pray for the marriage to be redeemed, and for deep healing to take place, for her to be sustained by the Lord, and for her to be able to find a place to live where she may be surrounded by mature and loving believers. It is times like this that make me want a larger house. Her name is Rebecca, and she told me I am allowed to share this information with the church.

Rebecca

07/25/2012
Please be praying for a full time position I temped for in the past. The position is open, and I am being looked at as a replacement. This job would be during the day when the kids are at school which means I would be home with them when they are home. This alone would be amazing since I have been working most nights, so Sara has been taking care of her siblings. Continuing my education would also be easier. Thank you for prayers!

Roberta

07/16/2012

Please pray for my Dad and his pending home purchase. He is very discouraged as he was supposed to be closing on the purchase of a home and now due to negligence on the part of the loan officer it is all in jeopardy of falling apart and losing all the money he’s already put toward this purchase. He is also having a hard time at his job and just lost 1.5 hours each week off of his schedule and lost his weekends off as well. He is feeling like everything is falling apart and struggling to not worry and fully trust in God and His control and sovereignty in this difficult time. Please pray that everything would get in order for the purchase of the home to go through ok, and also that my dad will have peace and be able to fully lean on God as he waits to find out in the next few days if the purchase is going to go through.

Sonia

02/20/2012
Please pray for my marriage, not to (separate or getting divorce), for marriage and family restoration, in all areas, peace, time to do the will of God and take care of myself and my family, to be able to fast, pray, read the Bible, peace, deliverance from oppression. Indubitable direction to find a business or job that doesn’t interfere with serving the Lord. For the salvation of my husband and son. For all of us, to know the Lord and direction to find a Church, and open doors for us, to serve the Lord. For his presence, faith, knowledge, wisdom, protection, divine health, the solution for financial freedom. For everything in our life, the message, preaching, not to be with wise and persuasive words, but with demonstration of the Spirit’s power.

Please lift my friend from high school, Chelsea, and her family and 7 month old son Trek in your prayers. Chelsea and her husband noticed some development and growth problems in their youngest son recently and after two hospital transfers and moving from Hawaii back to Colorado within a week or two they have found out what the problem is. Their son Trek has a VERY rare genetic degenerative disorder called Neimann Pick Type A. From what the doctors have told them he will probably only live until about 3 years old. There is no treatment or cure because it is so rare and they’ve been allowed to take Trek home and just to enjoy the time they have with him right now. Needless to say they are in shock right now and very heart broken and feeling like they are in a nightmare. Please pray for comfort, strength, and peace for them in this time and for God to be glorified in this situation in their family whether it be through miraculous healing or through the precious time He gives them.

Ron and Lisa M.

Please pray for our son, Cam, his schoolmates, and staff at school. Cam’s mid school language arts teacher, Mr. Burton, passed away today in surgery. I have no idea whether he was a believer. Please pray for God’s comfort during this time and for wisdom in answering Cam’s questions that I’m sure will arise.

Hello fellow saints! I have both good and not so good news.....for those of you who were part of Creekside you may remember Cathy Ferguson. The good news is that she has married a wonderful Christian man a few years ago and God has blessed them w/ a beautiful baby girl a few weeks ago. The bad news is that Cathy has been having complications ever since the delivery and the doctors have run several tests and are stumped. Her symptoms are extreme dizziness every time she gets up or moves from one position to another. But we know that God is our great physician and I plead w/ everyone to find the time to lift your sister up w/ prayer! Please also lift up her precious husband, Alfred, who’s responsibilities must be overwhelming right now, he is a strong man of God; please pray for his faith and perseverance through this. Lastly, please pray for continued healing between Cathy and her family members.

Rebecca

Dear Saints, Please continue to pray for AJ. All 75 staples have been removed from his head but he spent the day saying "No" to all requests with loud bouts of, "I want to go home." He is worn out and cranky from all the docs prodding and poking. Is off all pain meds and will hopefully be moved from ICU tomorrow. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort and calm AJ, that Cheryl will project a calm and soothing demeanor and that she and Beto will be strong in holding up under the pressure of seeing AJ uncomfortable and agitated. Please pray that God’s peace will wrap about them and give them supernatural patience with each other and the doctors. Pray that AJ will experience high speed healing so everyone can go home.

Valerie

08/22/2011
Thank you for all of your powerful, powerful prayers for AJ! He is able to follow commands, communicate with his hands and show the doctors that his head and jaw still hurt-the jaw because it is resting on his neck brace. He passed his breathing test yesterday; will be tested again today and if his scores are high the breathing tube will be removed. PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS. He will be much more comfortable when all that is obstructing his movements are gone. Cognitive responses are good. He recognizes people and has motor control of his limbs. The only unknown left is his speech. They will know more when his breathing tube comes out. PLEASE PRAY that his speech has not been effected, that he will be able to talk without hinderance and that all brain funtion in this area is 100 percent. Also Please continue to PRAY for financial coverage. Thank you faithful saints!!

Valerie

08/22/2011
AJ IS TALKING!!!!Tube is out and his breathing is great! Praise God for all that HE has given the Diaz family. (Cheryl Diaz) Please PRAY that his throat will not be sore for long, that he will recover his voice, and that his neck muscles will regain their strength. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS to hear our cries.

Valerie

AJ’s status has been changed to less critical so he was moved to a room where he shares a nurse since he no longer needs his own. Clot monitor and groin catheter has been removed. So...."everybody take a big sigh of relief, take time to THANK GOD for all HE has done ....... then get back to praying! :):):)" Toni Frye-Director of the Community Center at Boulder Ridge.

AJ Diaz, a 7 yr old from Boulder Ridge Trailer Park, fell out of a tree last Friday and has been at Children’s Hospital since with a clot monitor in his brain and under heavy sedation. Today they were able to relocate the clot monitor to his arm. Please pray that his vitals will stay strong so they can begin to lighten the sedation, that his inter cranial pressure will be at 10 or lower and that there is no brain damage. Please also pray for his dad, Beto, and his mom Cheryl, that they will experience the deep peace and comfort of Jesus and be able to tell of HIS wonderous works in the weeks to come. Pray for finances and complete healing so physical therapy won’t be needed. Pray also for Mario, his big brother-for a soft heart, for an obedient spirit, for strength and courage. Thank you prayer warriors.

Please pray for Sean. He is in Cameroon working with our translation/language helper but two days ago he got sick. He is not getting any better.

I’m up here in Steamboat at my moms house and we have hit flood season... the bad part is that in the last 50 + yrs it has not been this high in our area. Our shop/garage, crawlspace/basement and front yard are flooded with water and the house next door (we own but rent out) is a small island in a lake. We have sandbagged that house however last night the water breached the sand bags and we have pumps running to keep it out of the house (praise the Lord so far its still about 2 or 3 inches from entering the house. Some of our neighbors have water as deep as 18inches in their living rooms/houses. The county department of emergency management is worried that we still have not hit our peak. Please pray that the flood levels go down instead of continuing to rise and pray that my family will be able to be a blessing to our neighbors in need. My moms house is still on "higher ground" than the neighbors so we may be helping them out. Thank you.

Roberta

05/28/2011
Thank you for your prayers! My father’s surgery went well. The Lord has generously answered requests big and small and our hearts are full of praise and thanksgiving. Of course, we would appreciate further prayers as my dad will be somewhat fragile as they try to adjust his blood to safer levels over the course of the next week, or so. We serve a mighty God who is full of mercy and grace!

Roberta

05/27/2011
Please continue to pray for my family. My father’s gall bladder surgery was rescheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. His doctors just were not able to get his blood values to a place where surgery would be safe. We know that our Heavenly Father is in control and we are asking Him to use all of these things to work together for good. Please pray that God would increase our faith, that we could rest in His care, and that the Lord would exert His mighty power on my father’s behalf to bring healing and strength. Please pray that the Lord would grant all that is needed to the hospital staff so that they can give my dad all that he needs for healing.

Pray for Maria and Kevin, my friends in DC, whom I recently shared the gospel with through a letter and some Lee Strobel apologetic DVDS. Pray that they would watch the DVDs and be open to asking questions and talking with me. Pray the Holy Spirit would draw them both to true faith in Jesus.

Roberta

05/26/2011
My father, Robert, will be having gall bladder surgery on Friday afternoon. Because of his age, 81, and his blood disorders, the surgery has an elevated risk. Please pray for a successful outcome with no complications. Also lift up my mother in prayer as she is fearful. Also please ask the Lord to help me to be a minister of grace to my family.

Roberta

Please pray for my sister who lives in Wichita. It seems she is in an abusive (at least verbally) relationship. Her daughters (19 and 21) have moved out of the house and are very worried about her. She is not talking to me and not returning my phone calls, which is not like her at all. She has received Christ in the past, but I am not sure that it was a genuine conversion. I need wisdom in reaching out to her. Please pray she would open up to me and that she is protected from any harm. Also pray that she believes that she is valuable to God and that she would be able to see clearly to end this relationship.

Thank you.

My husband is an unbeliever and when I married him I knew we were unevenly yoked. God is leading me to let go of living in consequences and to reach forward for what God’s will is in our families future! My prayer request is two - fold: First, that God would continue to work in MY heart through the washing of the Word and through the counsel of the wise women he is surrounding me with. Specifically that I would learn how to submit to my husband in both word and deed with a pure heart that doesn’t manipulate and condemn. Second, I have seen God working in him in little ways over the last few months. Although he did not stay for the sermon, he came to the Easter brunch and wanted to take home an information brochure to look over; which for us is huge! We have had conversations that have led me to bring up the idea of sin and I have asked him to consider the idea. Please pray that God would soften his heart to honestly ponder if sin exists and how Christ redeems us.

Hello church I thank God for your hearts to serve him and the body through prayer! I have been taking Trajan to Mandarin Chinese classes in Highlands Ranch from a non-profit, non-Christian school called Great Wall Chinese Academy. On there newsletter I noticed an email requesting a bone marrow donor needed for a precious 5 yr. old boy. The email seems almost a year old and they are looking specifically for Asian (Korean) donors for a more likely match. God just laid it on my heart to get the word out as well as an opportunity to share the truth and love of Christ.You can go to this website for more details: http://www.savingconnor.com/

Update for my dad Jim Espinoza. Thank you for your prayers. We appreciate and love you so much. Praise our God whose grace is sufficient. Last week dad wasn’t feeling well and went to the hospital on Sat. Tests revealed a mini stroke. After more tests, the reason he was not feeling well was a viral infection along with poor rest. Through this our Lord brought to our attention that dad is at a high risk for stroke. Preventative medications are being prescribed. Without lack of sleep and feeling poorly, he wouldn’t have gone in and this information revealed. I can not stress enough our Lord’s love and grace and of His ways which are perfect. Our Lord is not limited within His character, which is perfection. He is in control of everything. If He did not plan to use it for His glory, He would not have allowed it! Let this stir you to deeper praise and understanding of Christ’s perfect work and His call in your own lives. Thank you for your dedication to Christ, His church, and our family.

Richard

03/05/2011
Please pray for my dad. He went to Boulder Community Hospital to have some tests run earlier today because he wasn’t feeling well. An EKG revealed a small stroke and he is scheduled for an MRI very soon. He will be spending the night.

In recent months, I contacted your website in regard to a man whose name is William ("Bill"). I thank you for your prayers and ask that you please continue to pray with me for this man’s salvation (also, for his deliverance from addiction). I am not in a position to witness to this man personally, but others have been contacted to this regard. Please ask the Lord to extend His Spirit to facilitate and lead a conversational witness through anyone whom He may choose. Please ask God to extend His grace toward Bill, doing everything needed to chase him, overcome his pride, lift the veil from his eyes, bring conviction to his heart and show him his need for a Savior. Please also ask God to sober him, to protect him, to purify his mind, to work on his heart with His Spirit; that He’ll place him in the company of believing friends. In Him for His glory and with sincere thanks, Sarah S 1 Timothy 2:1-4, Romans 8:31-32;8:37

Hello prayer warriors, I would like to share a brief story of my friend, Miaciah Malard. I have known Miaciah and praying for her salvation for about 9 years and we have been attending church regularly at Shepard for about two months now, Praise The Lord! Now for the prayer request, her husband, Dan, is asking for a divorce and Miaciah has tried everything in her power to prevent it. They have been living seperate for two months now and have a 3 1/2 yr. old daughter, Ezrella and 6 month old baby boy, Zachary. About a week ago Miaciah may have found reason to believe that Dan has had an affair and is now going through even more devestating emotions. She has given me permission to post this last night and is asking for discernment on how to sit down and talk to Dan without the enemy distorting what God would want to come out of the conversation. I have led her to scripture and advised that forgiveness and family is Gods desire and maybe this is Gods way of reaching Dan.

Rebecca

01/10/2011
Please pray for the Jarvis family. Our family friend Mike lost his mother to a massive heart attack last Thursday. It is just Mike and his father now.

She has breast cancer, 2 lumps, 2 different cancers. She’s waiting for the surgeon to call her to advise her of what happens next.

Please pray for Charlie Martin and Lars, both of which are with me in McMurdo for another 2.5 months. Both of them owned houses west of boulder, and there is a large chance that both of them lost their houses. Thankfully no one was killed at either, but the process of rebuilding is painful, much less when they cannot get back for another couple months.

Our friends that are foster parents were going to take care of the boys for the week and had started the process of changing agencies. Needless to say the agency did not like that they were leaving and has made it so that they are unable to watch the boys while we are on the wilderness trip - we just found this out Friday. So we were in scramble mode for the last couple of days. Finally on Wednesday they found a single mom that could watch the boys. But last night Christian woke up crying, stating that his hip hurt. We took him to the doctor and they said it looks like he has excess water in the joint. This has prompted the doctors to schedule a series of tests and doctor visits. We now have no idea how this is going effect our trip so we really need your prayers. Thank you all.

Ron

06/23/2010

My friend’s daughter, who is college aged, has a friend named Katie who has struggled with eating disorders for years. She finally spent about half a year in a facility for rehabilitation of people with her condition and bonded with a nurse there. She was a Motherly type and kept in consistent contact with Katie even after Katie had exited the program. So when she stopped hearing from the nurse she tried to contact her only to find that the nurse had committed suicide. Katie and many of the other girls whose lives this nurse had touched came to the nurse’s funeral. When one of their friends who was intending to be there didn’t show up the girls went to her apartment only to find her body. She had hung herself. Please pray for Katie and the other girls as they try to deal with these horrible situations. Please pray that the suicides will stop here and not snowball. Pray for strength and healing and life. Thank you.

My Dad was fired from his job almost 2 months ago and has been looking for a new job since that time. I talked with him earlier today and he hasn’t heard anything from any jobs in about 3 weeks, and as a result he is becoming very discouraged. Please keep him in prayer that he will continue to trust in God for provision of a job that will meet his needs. Also pray that God would grant him patience and perseverance as he waits on God’s timing and the job He has for him.

My dad’s brother, my Uncle Doyle, survived lung cancer about 10 years ago with only one lung left, but has experienced a decade of health problems, including congestive heart disease. This fall he got sick with a virus that led to pneumonia, and ultimately led to him being on life support and in a drug induced coma. My cousins made the most difficult decision of removing the life support yesterday, and they are doing that this morning. It is a very sad day for me. We lost my dad to lung cancer 8 years ago. They both were only in their 60’s. Leah is also quite sick with a respiratory virus. I need to make decisions about whether to travel to Oklahoma for the funeral and need God’s direction and wisdom. So I ask you to pray for me for that. Mostly, I need peace. Thankyou!

Pastor Ron

I start work on Monday morning! Hallelujah! I have joined the ranks of the employed again to bring our God glory and honor. God is so good! He is awesome and powerful and goes before His enemies and defeats them - not our will be done but His for always and forever, AMEN!

Marcia

04/18/2010
Please pray for Joe. He is going in for surgery on his prostate on Tuesday the 20th. Please pray for God’s grace and healing, and that this would get rid of the cancer. Please also pray for me.

Please pray for my sister, Trang. Tomorrow morning at 9:00 she is going into surgery. This is her fourth surgery for cancer, and we are praying that the doctors will be able to get all of it out this time. Please pray that the surgery would go well, and that God would heal her for His glory.

Thank you for your prayers. My sister’s surgery went well, and the surgeon said that the lymph nodes he removed looked good visually. The pathology report on the nodes won’t come back until next week sometime, so I would appreciate continued prayers for Kathy’s health. Also, they haven’t specified what follow-up treatment she might need, so prayers for wisdom for the doctors as they assess the situation when the report comes back would also be appreciated.

Tony

Please pray for my roommate Tim. He is physically suffering and is not sure about his standing with God. The outlook on his health is not good. I am very concerned.

Please pray for my sister Katy, who is having surgery to remove the cancer in her breasts late this morning. Please pray for skill for the doctor and his staff; that they would be able to remove all of the cancer and that the lymph nodes would prove clear of the disease.

I just heard from the editor at Tyndale that our "His Nature" fliers have been sent out and should be reaching some 25,000 churches this week. Please pray that our Lord Jesus would be glorified by this mailing and that He would open wide a door of ministry to many churches around the United States.

Gary Doolittle had a full day in the OR suite. After nine hours of cardiac surgery,he has moved to the recovery room. Although more challenging than expected, he is stable and expected to do well. Praise the Lord !!! He needs to be remembered in our daily prayers for a speedy and uneventful post-op course. Rick Erickson

As many of you know, we are fostering 2 little ones whom we have had for more than 2 years now. We have an upcoming hearing on Feb 8th in which the judge will decide if she will terminate parental rights so we can adopt. They have already ruled that the children will stay with us but if they do not terminate parental rights we could never adopt and would be forced to have some very unhealthy people in their lives. Also if they start a precedent for this in foster care it would negatively affect possibly thousands of children and families and really break down foster adoption. It is a long story but God knows the details. Please pray for His grace and power to overwhelm the situation and move the judge. God holds the hearts of rulers and kings in His hands. Also be praying for the salvation of the children’s mom.

Dear Church Family, My sister, Katy, who lives in Phoenix, has just learned that she has breast cancer and she is asking for prayer. Please pray for God’s grace for Katy and for my family. - Roberta

Hello again, I would appreciate your prayers. As I have posted before I am going to be taking my RN boards tomorrow (12/30/09) around 8am. Please be in prayer for me that I would be calm, have wisdom, clarity, a sharp mind, retention, recollection and be filled with the Holy Spirit. And the time left to study will be beneficial. Thank you all!

Dear Church family, The last couple of days we have seen God’s goodness in a wonderful way. the doctors went from having to ambulance Anna from Lafayette to Children’s hospital in Aurora, to having her walk out of the hospital last night by herself. The doctors are telling us to keep life as normal as possible, and her friend Dani spent the night last night and Anna and Donna made applesauce today. The non-epileptic seizures will either subside and fade away, or they will be something she will have to learn to control and live with. Please pray that they will subside quickly. Thank you for all your prayers and love and concern! We look forward to worshiping with you tomorrow. Love, Ron

Kyle

11/13/2009
Dear church family, Thank you for praying for Anna. The doctors at Children’s evaluated her quickly and said that this is something that they have seen in teenagers before. It is not an epileptic type of seizure. It will pass, and she doesn’t have to be admitted to the hospital. They are discharging her and the Prosise’s are heading home. PLEASE continue to pray for Anna. Pray that the Lord will cause this to pass and that His loving hand would guide her through it. Pray for healing and protection. Pray that she and her parents would trust in Him. Psalm 62:5-7. In Him, Kyle

I received this prayer request from Vera, Anatoly Oleynik’s sister-in-law This morning when I talked to Anatoly, he told me that Russian government want to change the law about religious freedom. Right now this "new law" is in the "russian duma" or "congress". It’s not approve yet, they are working on it. But according this "new law", christian will not be permitted preach the gospel on the street, they will be prosecuted, and will have to pay big penalty. The children under 14 years can not go to the church without written permission from the both parents. Anatoly said, this "new law" was accepted by USSA in 1935, when Stalin regime prosecuted the christian. Please pray asking God to continue freedom in Russia, and keep the door open to preach the Gospel there. Vera has also put up a website with pictures & their most recent prayer letter: www.missionrussia.org

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone who has been praying with us that God would open a door for HIS CREATION to be able to co-labor with Tyndale House Publishers in ministry. Today, Tyndale officially agreed to start publishing our "His Nature" bulletin inserts! Our omnipotent and all-sufficient God deserves all the praise for this seemingly unlikely series of events that has led to our signing a contract with Tyndale. In a sense, it has taken HIS CREATION 20 years to get to this point — Jesus is the One who perseveres in us. He is so good!

Rick

10/20/2009
I just received an e-mail from the editor at Tyndale House Publishers and he will be presenting our "His Nature" publication to their Publications Committee on October 26 for final approval. If we pass the Publications Committee, our contract with Tyndale will become official and they will start publishing "His Nature." Please pray that Father’s will be done on the 26th and that He will allow us to spread the fame of His Son’s glory through "His Nature" and Tyndale!

Hello my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, I have decided to take the NCLEX nursing boards again. For those of you who do not know, I have taken them twice before. Please be in prayer that I will study diligently and effectively. Also, pray that I would be calm and trust the Lord through studying and during the test sometime in December. Also, pray that if this is the Lord’s will that I pass the boards. This will be my last attempt to get my RN license. Thank you! Because of Him, Heather

Dearest Saints, I just received this e-mail from Sergei — please continue to pray for Pavel, Elena, and Dmitry, and the situation in Uzbekistan! Rick Dear brethren, Thank you very much to you all for the prayers! The situation looks like the brothers and the sister will get the sentence and the amnesty together. That means they will probably won’t face jail, but still get their criminal record and be on the hook till next time anybody unhappy with what they are doing Our brothers and sisters in Uzbekistan highly appreciate your love, care, prayers and encouragement Yours by the love and grace of Christ Jesus Sergei

Rick

09/23/2009
Dear Saints, HIS CREATION is actively involved in Uzbekistan—Sergei sends our Russian translation of ’CREATOR’ to Christian families there. It’s very possible that our ’CREATOR’ publications were used in the Children’s Camp that Sergei mentions below. Please pray for Pavel, Elena, & Dmitry. It breaks my heart to see Satan attacking the youngest members of their society by trying to shut down these Children’s Camps where the Truth of Christ is being preached to the next generation. Uzbekistan is 11 hours ahead of us, so it will be September 24 in just a few hours! Rick Dear Saints, I just got an urgent prayer need. The Office of Public Prosecutor of Uzbekistan initiated a law suit against the Baptist Union of Uzbekistan because of the Children camp they made. The charges of not paying taxes & forcing children into religious activity against their will are made against Pavel P., Elena K. & camp director, Dmitry P. Court hearing to be Sept. 24. Please pray (Acts 12:5)! Sergei

I saw the pulmonary specialist and amyloid doctor Monday. They are both 80% sure I have amyloid in my lungs, but are waiting for the biopsy results for confirmation. My doctor recommends high-dose chemo with stem-cell transplant right away. If my lungs get much worse, I won’t be a candidate for high dose. If they try medium or low-dose chemo and it doesn’t work, there won’t be any options left. If the biopsy is positive, they will do a stem-cell collection for 2-3 weeks the end of Oct. I’d go home for about a month and return. After this, unless things go very badly, I can return home and live by myself. I can’t clean house for 100 days. I know I can hire that stuff done and I can at least keep my (dog) Gypsy-baby! My Dad also found out last week he has skin cancer. Please pray that I can encourage him and not be such a burden to him while he’s dealing with his own issues. Please pray that I will focus on Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.

As Jesus moves HIS CREATION ahead in the publication of our bulletin inserts through Tyndale, please pray that God's glory would be proclaimed and cherished in thousands of churches across our nation. Please also pray that I would remain broken in Christ's humility - that I could solely rely on His wisdom in writing about His precious character in these bulletin inserts. Father's Spirit is gently, but firmly reminding me (once again) to stay focused on Jesus' glory, and remain single-hearted in the ministry He has graciously given me... Please pray that God would work Jeremiah 32:39 in my life every day: "I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear Me for their own good and the good of their children after them." NIV May our Triune God be pleased to use the HIS NATURE bulletin inserts to publish His glory!

I have a job interview coming up this Thursday @ 10:30 am. Please join me and come into agreement as I present my request before the Lord. My prayer is that: I will fulfill what God's needs and wants are concerning this job opportunity - not what I want and need. It is all about glorifying Him and honoring Him. That I will fulfill the calling He has ordained me to do in this new job. That I will be a light shining in a dark, dark world and that I would be a powerful witness for Jesus Christ in the work place through my words, deeds, thoughts and actions. That I will be calm and collect as I take a pre-employment test and will think clearly so that I may pass the exam. That I will be honorable, courteous and respectable with my speech and actions filled with the salt of the Lord as I am interviewed by a three person panel. And that this will be God's will to fulfill His desires for my life. Thank you, Tony Sanchez

Thank you all of you praying saints. We have had some answered prayer and good news and some very frustrating news in the last few days. Praise God, some things were brought to light which have made the county reconsider sending the children home at this time!! We have been told though that mom may go into residential treatment and the county isn't going to argue for Termination of Parental rights at the next court date due (long-story). They are scheduling a court date as early as the 19th. We are supposed to meet with a Children's Law center in Denver on Monday to discuss their rates etc. The lawyer said that she also will be candid with us about our chances of fighting Denver. Please pray that God would end this at the next court date as the judge can choose to end it, for wisdom in the decision to intervene in court and whether to hire this law firm and for peace. Also the mother's sister is in critical condition in the hospital pray she repents and comes to Christ.

Mali

I have found myself in a situation that requires me to find a 20 hour a week job making $20,000 a year with health benefits. I really would like it to be in a Christian ministry somewhere. This is a tall request, but I know we serve the God of the impossible. Would you please pray for my job search? Do you know of anything that would fit the bill? I am so thankful for your labor in prayer and may the Lord richly bless you all. Love, Mali.

Thanks to all of you who prayed for Paige over the weekend. She was released from the hospital this morning and is doing great. She had a virus that developed into pneumonia. She's still clearing out her lungs a little, but her blood oxygen level is good. Your prayer, phone calls, and visits were a great help to our family. Thanks!

Please be diligent in prayer for our family. We have a court date Aug 31st. We've had the children for over 19 months (since Dawnette was 8 days old). We have been told repeatedly we would be able to adopt them. We got a call today, and in spite of many concerns, they want to re-unify the children with their mother. If the case worker has her way they will be sent back to their mother very soon. Please pray for God's protection over the children, that anything that would harm them would be revealed, and that they would not be sent back to an unsafe environment. Also pray for peace and comfort for our family, as you can imagine we are heartbroken and fearful for their well-being. Especially pray for me (Lisa) as I feel that I'm losing my own babies. The baby only knows us as her family and will be devastated and confused if taken away. She is extremely bonded with our family and has no family bond with her mom. We plead for your prayers for God's intervention!

Marcia Kirby's bone marrow biopsy was negative (it showed no cancer in her bone marrow). We thank our great Physician for this news! Her blood iron level, however, is low. The doctors are looking into why. Please continue to pray for Joe & Marcia as they walk this path with Jesus.

Please keep our friends Kervy and Karen Vincoy in your prayers. They served as missionaries in the Philippines over the summer when Kervy was hospitalized with a twisted large intestine and had surgery over there because they did not think he would make it back to the states. He has just been released and they plan on being back in CO 8/8. Please pray for his health and safe travels. Thank you.

Please pray for my friend Jenny. She & her husband are on the brink of divorce. She is not a believer (they are going to Mile High Church of Religious Science). We spent last weekend together at a conference & talked a lot. We talked a lot about whether people are "good" or not & I mentioned the movie "Fireproof" to her. I told her that the person in the movie could not love his wife without the power of Christ. I sent her a copie of the movie & the "Love Dare" book, along with the gospel of John & "He did this for you" by Max Lucado. Please pray that God would open her eyes to her need for a saviour & give her a desire to love her husband with Agape love.

"Praise God from whom all blessings flow". To my loving church family I want to say thank you for your ongoing prayers to our Lord and Savior. I just received the results from a recent PET scan which showed that I am still cancer free!!!! It will be two years in September. God has blessed me tremendously during this time through you!

Dear Shepherd's, Marcia Kirby (Joe & Marcia) found out last week that she has lymphoma. She went in for a bone marrow biopsy yesterday and is anticipating that she will probably be starting chemotherapy soon. As Christ's Spirit brings her & Joe to mind, please pray for them! I talked with her this past Sunday and Jesus has given her an amazing peacefulness of heart regarding her diagnosis. Please pray that she & Joe would continue in our sweet Lord's peace and comfort. Thank you so much!! Rick

Dearest Saints, Thank you SO MUCH for all your prayers——they have been richly answered!! Our sweet Lord Jesus has given me a day free from all melancholy. Thank you so much for this precious encouragement you have lavished on me today through pray!! For this is what the high and lofty One says— He who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is [crushed] and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the [crushed]" Isaiah 57:15 In Father's perfect love, Rick Destree

Rick

07/13/2009
Dear Saints, I have been really struggling with melancholy and irritability recently. I want so much to be satisfied in Jesus' incomparable glory, but I'm finding it difficult to keep my focus on Him, which is discouraging. Please pray that the Holy Spirit would once again allow me to cry out with all my heart that God is "my Joy and my Delight." "Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God" (Psalm 43:4). In Father's love, Rick Destree

We have two important prayer requests. The first and foremost being that God would be glorified and show Himself as the defender of the weak in our upcoming Termination (or Parental Rights) hearing on August 31st. We have had Devon and Dawnette for over 19 months, since the day Dawnette came out of the hospital after being born premature. We love them very much and have been through a lot of disappointments with the way this has drug out, the children would be very tramautized and most likely in a bad situation if they went home at this point. If termination goes through we would be able to adopt them. The second request has to do with trying to get closer to this body as we live up near Ft. Collins in Windsor. We put the house on the market a couple of weeks ago and are praying that it sells and God directs us to a new home and to which area would be best for us for service and fellowship.

Colleen

05/08/2009
Thanks so much to everyone who has been praying for my mom. She came through the surgery very well and has been in the ICU for 2 days now. Today they are moving her to a regular room in the hospital. We are praising God for His goodness in allowing the doctors to find and treat her condition, for her body's healing, and His strength to help her through this difficult time. She is dealing with a lot of pain, please pray for the Lord to be her comfort and strength and for Rick and I to continue to point her to Christ throughout her healing. I am so grateful for our faith family back home...we miss you all! In Christ, Colleen

Rick

05/01/2009
Dear Shepherd's Family, Colleen's mom has developed a dangerously-large aneurysm in her abdomen and is scheduled for major surgery this coming Wednesday. Colleen & I will be driving to Illinois this weekend and staying with Mom for most of her recovery. Please pray that Christ will be glorified! Please pray that we can shine Jesus' love into Mom's life. She is a Believer, but in some ways, young in the Lord. Please pray that Colleen & I will die to ourselves daily so that we can be used by God to be of maximum help to her mom. Please also pray that I will die to myself as I support Colleen through this extremely difficult time. Mom is scheduled to be in the hospital for 7 to 10 days after surgery and will then move to an extended care facility for at least a month (the surgeon insisted on the latter). She doesn't have anyone else she can consistently rely upon, so we probably won't see you again until June or later. We'll miss you all! In Christ's sweet, sweet love, Rick Destree

Ron

03/31/2009
Please be in prayer for Shirley McAdams—her father passed away yesterday, and she left to fly out for his memorial service in Yuma, Arizona. Pray for God's peace and grace to be manifest during this difficult time. "You came near when I called you, and you said, 'Do not fear.'" (Lamentations 3:57)

Colleen

03/16/2009
Dearest Saints, Colleen has developed symptoms of a severe urinary tract infection. Her doctor started her on an antibiotic this afternoon, but unfortunately she promptly got very sick to her stomach (due to the medicine). She is down in bed and feeling worse. We are flying out of town early Wednesday morning to attend the Ligonier National Conference. Please pray that we can get Colleen on a different antibiotic soon and that she will respond well to it. We praise our sweet Lord Jesus in the midst of this trial because we know that He cares for Colleen and believe that He will be glorified through it!! In His precious love, Rick

Kelly

03/05/2009
Dear Church Family, I will be undergoing open heart surgery on Monday, March 9 at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver. The surgery will be to remove the "clot" from the right atrium of my heart and to check on one mass and one shadow that have shown up on my right lung (shown on the PET scan). The spots on my lung are more likely areas of inflammation, infection or blood clots rather than cancer (Praise God!). But, quite honestly they don't know what they are...so we have to see :). I'm asking for you to pray for wisdom for everyone involved in this especially the docs. That God would guide their hands. That he would also continue to blanket our family in His peace, the "peace that transcends all understanding". And that he would heal me completely. Thank you for all of prayers and all of the love you have provided us.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Please join me in praying for my mom who was admitted to the hospital yesterday in AZ and will be undergoing surgery tomorrow for the cancer in her colon they identified today. How wonderful is our God that He has given us His Word and His Spirit, and has brought us into His church, to sustain, equip, encourage, keep us in all and through all things. thank you and His grace and peace to you shirley

Kelly

02/21/2009
Thank you all for your prayers. I wanted to update the previous prayer requests. The plan is to have open heart surgery on March 9th. There is a type of open heart surgery that is a little less invasive (I'm hoping I can have this kind), but I know God is incontrol and I trust His will for me. From now until March 9th, I will undergo many tests to check things out (PET scan, CT scans,blood work). Thank you for walking through this journey with us with prayer, service, and love. We have been so blessed! To God be the Glory!

Kelly

02/12/2009
Dear Church Family I want to thank for you all for your prayers over the past year and a half especially. I have just found out that I am facing another surgery. The cardiologists are uncertain at this time if it is a blood clot in my heart or something else. So it needs to come out. I am also facing a "minor procedure" in the near future as well. I am so blessed to be a part of this body of believers. Thank you for your prayers.

Joe

02/05/2009
Many have asked for an update on Kelly's status. It is pretty much status quo, and that's the problem. Yesterday she had an echo cardiogram down her throat to get a closer look at the clot in the heart. The cardiologist is going to take the results to a conference of about 30 other cardiologists and heart surgeons on Tuesday to try to come up with a new gameplan. The blood thinner just isn't working quick enough. We should know more Tuesday evening or Wednesday. We're praying there is some alternative to open heart surgery, and we would still appreciate your help with that. Thanks.

Joe

02/05/2009
Please pray for my coworker Patsy. She just lost her full term baby to a clot in the cord back in November. It was her first, and she's really not doing well. As she is not a believer, she seems lost with no spiritual anchor. She is not close to her family, and feels she only has her husband, Pete's, support. Pray for healing and direction, and salvation for both of them. Pray for a loving, understanding, and compassionate heart for me.

Joe

02/05/2009
Please pray for my long time friend Garth and his family. His dad Carl has brain cancer with a large inoperable tumor. Carl was doing well, but has recently taken a turn for the worse, and there is only one more chemo to try. Pray for Carl's healing and complete recovery. Also, please pray for Garth as he seems to be questioning "why?". Garth has a loose catholic background, and though he seems to have some kind of faith, I doubt if he's a believer. Pray that Garth will be drawn near to the Lord at this time, and that he would be saved if he is not already. Pray that God would use me to boldly share the gospel and that the power of the gospel would bring Garth to the cross. Thanks.

Roberta

01/17/2009
I wanted to ask for prayer for my father, who is 78 years old, and who was admitted to the hospital in El Paso on Saturday with a blood disorder. It sounds like he has been having severe joint pain, losing weight and getting little sleep for some time. His spirits, however, are higher now that his doctors have a diagnosis and have decided on a course of treatment. They are hopeful that he will only be in the hospital for three or four days. Please pray for his relationship with the Lord to be deepened, and that his spriits will remain high. Pray also, for the treatment to be effective, for healing, and that no surgery will be necessary.

Ron

01/16/2009
We have been praying for Rick Erickson, who had testing for his heart done this week. It was discovered that Rick had ninety percent artery blockage, and was in surgery this morning, which went well. I will be visiting Rick at St. Joseph's hospital this evening. Praise the Lord for this timely discovery and pray for his full recovery!

I am having surgery next week, Thursday, Jan. 15. I have had problems with ovarian cysts for years and have had a couple of surgeries before for this problem, one surgery damaged an ovary. I have had persistent pain on that ovary for months and the decision has been made to go ahead and remove both ovaries. Please pray for me to have God's peace before and after this procedure and for all of my family to do well through the recovery period. Also, please join me and Praise the Lord for his goodness to us in allowing us to be able to have any children at all!! I have been reminded recently through the pain of what a miracle it is that God gave us 4 children, despite my medical history.

I'd like to start off with an amazing praise. Our amazing heavenly father has brought Dee and I a beautiful baby boy, who is quite healthy and we will be forever grateful!!! =) We made a slight error, however, in assuming it would be easy once we got him home. We are having trouble getting him to eat, and it is taking a large physical and emotional toll on us both. Please pray that God will provide us with the strength and encouragement we need to persevere. We both know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, but it is still a trying time. Thank you all!

Please pray for my family in Houston. My mom, dad, sister, and my sister's family all live in the Houston area, along with many friends. (I grew up in the Houston area.) My family is not near the coast, but they could still get heavy wind and rain, perhaps even flooding. Thank you. ~donald

Hello family, We received news that blood clots developed in Kelly Ferdig's heart. She is in the hospital at this time and will be treated and monitored overnight. We do not yet know the extent or number of clots but exhort you to pray for her and her family during this time. She has been a model of godliness and perseverance to us throughout her battle with cancer as we witnessed the power of the Holy Spirit (The Comforter) in her life. Praise be to God for her example! Thank you all for praying.

Randall

08/13/2008
Dee and I both have large scale decisions to make involving our current and future job situation, and we would love to have our brothers and sisters in Christ pray for us =) Please pray that God will grant us wisdom to make the right decision. Also pray that we will glorify Him by being steadfast in our faith that through all God WILL provide. Thank You!

Tom's dad (in Nebraska) is in the final stages of cirrhosis of the liver. Jan's dad (in Wisconsin) is in the final stages of Alzheimer's. Both men have rejected any talk of Salvation. Please pray that both will have clarity of mind to see their need and reach out to the Savior. Please also pray for the family. This is hard especially for Jan's mom. None of the family is saved. And please pray for us to know what God wants us to do.

Please pray for the salvation of our 17 year old daughter, that the Lord would have mercy on her and draw her to Christ, that she would repent and trust Christ as Lord and Savior and start obeying Him. Thank you so very much for allowing me to share this, but most of all for your prayers. In Christ, Gudrun

Church Family, As many of you know I have been looking for part-time work at home (bookkeeping/accounting) for quite a long time now without any real results. I would greatly appreciate your prayers for Randy and I as we seek God's will in my continued search for work as well as in how we may need to change our finances to better suit our current position. God has continually blessed us and provided for us as I have not been working outside the home. We know that He has also called us to be good stewards of the resources He has provided, so we want to make sure we are doing that to the best of our abilities. I would also appreciate your prayers for God to guide and direct us to what He would have me do. I know that I desperately need God's guidance, direction, and wisdom to be able to find the job that God has planned for me. Above all, we desire to follow God's will and plan for our lives, and need prayer that He will help us to discern and obediently follow whatever He has for us.

Dear Church Family, Thank you all for the prayers that you have lifted up on my behalf. I have been so blessed to be a part of this body of believers. Thank you for allowing God to work through you. I humbly ask you to continue to pray for my health as I have gone through another series of tests and have another one to go next week. God is so good and so faithful. I also write to ask for prayer for my father-in-law, Joe's dad. This week he was diagnosed with rectal cancer. We still do not know many of the details, but ask that you would remember him in your prayers as well. I feel so blessed to be able to write to you and ask these things. Thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do. We praise God in all of these things.

I just recieved a phone call from a very good friend who has visited our church in the past and he had very sad news. His name is Don and he called to tell me his daughter was found dead today in their Broomfield home. Cause of death is not known at this point. This was the only daughter. She was married and had a teenage daughter. Please pray for the husband (Ed and daughter Baily) as they go through this very difficult time. Also pray for my good friend Don and his wife as they sorrow over this unexpected loss. Thankyou so much Gary Doolittle

How great is our God and all will see how great how great is our God!" That song comes to mind as I email the good news on Samuel. Deedee just called...the PET scan results were normal, the bone marrow was normal, Samuel is out of bed and walking around and actually going home this evening!!!! The doctors are amazed. Jim and Deedee are overwhelmed, I guess Jim is dancing around the room. (I'm probably going to get in trouble for that : ) As many of you know, the oncology team of doctors were preparing Jim and Deedee for a leukemia or lymphoma diagnosis. So we rejoice with the Martinko family and bless His holy name!! Say to God, "How awe-inspiring are Your works!" Psalm 66:3 With great joy, Hilary

Dear family, Please lift up Samuel Martinko in prayer before our Merciful God as he is in the hospital today undergoing testing for a sudden drop in white blood cell count. He started having severe headaches and a high fever two nights ago and a spinal tap yesterday cleared meningitis as an option. However, the symptoms continued last night and his blood tests today show some anomalies. May He grant Samuel strength and peace as he goes through this difficult time... Please pray. Thank you.

Please take a moment today to pray for the people of Yangon, Myanmar. Pray that God's glory will be revealed through the lives of those who assist the victims and that people will seek Christ in this time of tragedy.

With Kelly's permission, I am submitting a prayer request on her behalf. Kelly's heart scan is this Thursday, the 8th. Please pray for good results, that her heart function has improved enough to continue treatment. And also that she would get a good technician to start her IV. Thanks SCC!

This morning, Darylee was taking the kids to school and was rear-ended outside of Longmont. No major injuries, but Sydney's teacher just called because she is complaining of neck and back pain. Darylee's neck is a little stiff too. We'll be taking Sydney to her Pediatrician as a pre-caution. Please pray for them that there is nothing serious and for God to help calm their nerves.
