|Two needs||Linda Bland||1||11-28-2015|
|The first need is for a couple that have been married for a long time -- over 50 years -- and their is abuse both physical and mental. |
Also there is a situation where the couple is in an assisted living facility and they need for their house to sell in order to be able to stay there. They have been married for over sixty years, but cannot stay by themselves.
Both of these requests are very serious and very sad and need a true miracle from God. Thank you.
|Mom's Surgery||Bethany Hartman||5||11-09-2015|
|My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time this fall, and will be having surgery tomorrow (11/10/15). This surgery is more intense than the first time around, and it is suppose to result in long term limited mobility of her arms. Please be praying for wisdom and skill for the doctors, easy recovery, and total mobility and healing. |
|prayer for lost relative||Heather Hinson||6||11-04-2015|
|Please be praying for the salvation of one of our family members on the Hinson side, and his girlfriend. They have two girls together, are unmarried and living together. The second child is still unborn, and they have named her "Persephone Alexandra". Persephone is from Greek mythology meaning "the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, kidnapped by Hades to be his bride and to reign with him over the dead". The mother of the children is into Wiccan witchcraft. Lots of prayer needed!!|
|Urgent Prayer for Missionaries||Linda Bland||3||10-31-2015|
|I received this request from a friend -|
EXTREMELY URGENT PRAYER REQUEST--PLEASE PRAY AND THEN FORWARD TO ALL CHRISTIANS - Prayer Request from Dan and Marilyn Wilson. Missionaries who are in the areas that are being attacked by ISIS are asking to be showered in prayer. ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents.
The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries are on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families even if it means their own deaths. They are very afraid; have no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called them for some reason to be His voice and hands at this place at this time.
Even so, they are begging for prayers for courage to live out their vocation in such dire circumstances. And like the children, accept martyrdom if they are called to do so. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and perseverance.
One missionary was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn't say it, but I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten -- no matter what. Please keep them all in your prayers.
This came this morning...Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.
"We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food to. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last ight. The UN evacuated its staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!"
Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region. May I plead with you not to ignore this email? Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible. Send it to friends and Christians you may know. Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him to pray on Sunday during the service - making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.
|Please pray for my friend Missy who had breast cancer as a teen and now in her mid/late 40's has it in both breast. She has a good attitude....so far. It is intermediate invasive carcinoma|
|prayer request||Heather Hinson||4||09-27-2015|
|Update, Thursday, Oct.1---one of the folks I called, at the recommendation of another friend, came out yesterday and worked on the roof. After the evening rain, the ceiling was not dripping, so thankfully it seems the job was well done. Best part of all is the man is a youth leader at his church and a Godly man. Thank you for praying!!|
Update as of Tuesday morning---so far, ceiling still leaking and no one I have called to help has returned my calls. Please pray for the Lord to lead us to the person we need. Thanks.
This morning during heavy rain, the ceiling over our bed began leaking. To say the least we will have to repair the leak outside but then will have to replace sheetrock inside as well as insulation in the attic. Please be praying for a break in the weather so we can get this addressed. We do have insurance, but this is stressful for Rick regardless.
|Nephew had a seizure||Eric Willoughby||4||09-16-2015|
|My nephew, Channing, who is 2 years old was just transported in an ambulance to the ER. He had a seizure at my parents house, and remained unconscious for most of the transport. He is now awake, and on an IV. Low grade fever, but he has been sick for the last couple of days. |
|Pray life over Luke||Russell Bradley||8||09-14-2015|
|I have a friend named Luke who is going through some challenging times at such a young age (he's a freshman in college). While I won't disclose such circumstances, please pray life over him and his family and that Jesus would open Luke's heart to His love. Thank you.|
|Pray for Kimberly's Brother on Hospice||Kimberly Cacioppo||12||09-08-2015|
|Please pray for Kimberly's brother. He has been battling cancer and hospice has come in now. He is on oxygen. Kimberly will be flying to CA to see him. |
|prayer for a friend||Heather Hinson||12||09-08-2015|
|Update, Monday, Sept. 14th---Carlo has returned home!! Thank you for praying, and please continue, as he was in counseling already. |
An update: Kim and Carl have made contact with Carlo (age 17) but he has not come home as yet. He is alive, thankfully. The police will not help because he is so close to being 18. Please continue to pray for his return to home, and for his salvation. He was evidently already in counseling.
My friends Carl and Kim Lombardo, former neighbors, just told me their son Carlo has run away. Please be in prayer for this young man (in his teens). So far the local police are not helping them. Please also pray for Carlo's salvation.
|Prayer from Diane Jastremzki for her niece Alli||Linda Bland||9||08-25-2015|
|Dear Friends ~ We were blessed to be able to spend this afternoon with Bill & Gloria, Alli's parents. In the past week, Alli's older sister, Stephanie and her husband, Josh, have moved to VA Beach from Pittsburgh, PA. Bill & Glor came to visit us for a few hours on their way back home to Ashland, KY. Please continue to pray, not only for Allison, but for the whole family. They are suffering so much pain and even though they are Christians, they have so many questions. Gloria is hurting so badly and she admitted she asks God, 'Why my Allison, Lord?' The helplessness I felt listening to her pour her heart out, was almost paralyzing. I offered all the comfort and encouragement I could trying to not offer empty words or false hope. It was so very hard. >
Allison's cancer is beyond the scope of radiation or chemo; all she can do is take pain medicine. She needs a miracle!!
Tomorrow, Monday, she and her husband, Patrick, are traveling up to Columbus, OH from Ashland, KY to "apply" for the chance at being a candidate for a new drug. She will know in time, after that, if she qualifies to be part of this test group. She is willing to try whatever may be possible to prolong her young life.
So, friends, I am asking you to continue praying for that miracle for Alli and for the whole family. To God be the glory!!
I have never experienced a time in my life when prayers are needed for so many circumstances at once. And for situations that seems overwhelming. Do you feel that way?
I am keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of my/our faith!
Thank you for your obedience to pray ~ Love, Diane

|Family Medical Concern||Kevin Mink||4||07-17-2015|
|TSCC, please pray for Lisa's brother in law Martin. He was taken to the hospital last night in Indiana with rapid heart rate and chest pains. He has been admitted and is going to be in there at least another night. Also please lift Lisa's sister, Kara, up in prayer as she is not in the best of health and they have a special needs child and she will need extra support during this time. Thank you and God Bless!|
|My car and Joy||Annette McLeod||3||07-12-2015|
|My car is going into the shop on Monday to be put on a large computer to see why it is running rough. There is no engine light on or anything that will pull up a code except for this machine(hopefully). Pray I can get it fixed so I can sell it soon and actually have a car to drive. And pray for my niece Joy. Her MRI came back and she has a 4mm ganglion cyst, fraying of one of the ligaments(suspicious of a tare)-both which deal with a ligament left of center in the wrist;and inflammation causing excess fluid in one of the bones in the center of wrist. Thank You all!!!|
|from Joy: Prayers would be appreciated! Going to have an MRI done on my wrist, kinda nervous but hoping it will reveal a cause and then a solution to the awful pain in my wrist.|
|Please pray for Norma she has a 1:30 court date today. Her husband of 32 years passed away 2 years ago and his kids are fighting her tooth and nail. If it was up to them she would get nothing. The marriage was a wonderful one and her husband hadn't had a will drawn up yet. And he hadn't gotten around putting the house in both their names either. My friend is her daughter in law and said she never knew the couple to have ever had a fight. He had a business too. She is supposed to get 1/3 of the house and hopefully of the business too since Norma never worked. Thanks|
|update and praise report||Heather Hinson||4||06-10-2015|
|My father had a PET scan about three weeks ago, which means radioactive drug were given to him prior to a cat scan. This was because spots were discovered on his lungs, and the doctors weren't sure if they were an malignancy or not. If they were, they would have absorbed the radioactive material and been yellow on the scan, but they were not. It appears they are a couple of inflammed spots, possibly mucous pockets. No treatment needed, and they will just watch him. Many thanks to all who have been praying for our family!|
|Pray for a new job||Richard Johnson||5||06-09-2015|
|My position at my work was recently eliminated due to a company downsizing and realignment. I\'m back on the job market actively doing my part to get back on my feet. Please pray for the Lord\'s favor and direction as I continue in my job search efforts. Thanks one and all, in His name.|
|update and prayer request for my dad||Heather Hinson||2||05-22-2015|
|Further testing has revealed spots on my father's lungs but still uncertain whether or not they may be malignant. He went for a radioactive test yesterday and won't get the results until June 10. Please pray this will show no malignancies and for peace while we are waiting for the results.|

|I received a call from my old supervisor's wife that he has cancer throughout his body and that the doctors are saying he has two months or so to live. His name is Dean Hefner and of course, we know that God is the great physician and miracles do happen. |
Also, I got a call from my cousin and a family friend has had a severe stroke and is on life support in Roanoke Memorial. She asked me to put this on our prayer chain -- His name is Steve.
|My friend Mary lost her husband this morning and doesn\'t know if she will have to move or not. She has been my best friend for over 30 years and it will be hard not to be able to go to Michigan and support her due to VT graduation I am not allowed to ask for any time off this week.|
|for my dad||Heather Hinson||1||05-08-2015|

Please pray for a total healing and that the spots will not be there when they do the next cat scan. My dad's name is Rodney Bonck, and he is 91. Many thanks.|
