We ask You that You consider our petitions for healing and recovery according to Your will for each person that we bring before You. We know that You, who see the circumstances of all of us, and who pours out Your grace and mercy on us with many blessings that none of us are worthy of.

Please pray that the mercy and grace of God will be poured out on this young boy. Continue praying as this young body battles this debilitating disease of cancer.

Jennifer and Nora Collins, along with there father who have been long time members of the prayer list. All three of them having various types of cancer's continue to struggle with their on going battles, we have no update pertaining to Jennifer's condition today.  We know that since the doctors told her that she has but 2/4 weeks to live, that all of her family and friends have gathered with her in support.  The most and best thing that we can do is pray and call of the name of the Lord, asking t Him to touch all of them according to His will for this family.

Ed and Mary Edmonds: Both are doing great since recovering from their respective surgeries, so let us give God the glory in all of this.

To everyone who reads these posts, and prays for all who are on the Prayer List, let them rejoice in the Lord and give to Him the praise that His name is deserving of. For God is good, and He is good all the time. AMEN.
 
Also; It is my hope and prayer that if anyone of you, who are facing difficulties in your life, that no matter what, you will put your hope and trust in the Lord, letting His name be praised. And for those who don't know Him as there Savior, let them seek His face that they be saved, strengthened, and redeemed, by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN. 
 
To God be the Glory. We thank God for each bit of good news for the people on the prayer list. We know that His presence has endowed the Doctors to know and make the wise decisions that cover the treatments for each one on the prayer list and all others who are facing afflictions in their lives, and we know that God is at work in each of the lives on the prayer list granting them a part of His infinite grace and continuing to bless the doctors with the knowledge and wisdom that they need so that they can share with us the very best that we are granted, the best of care by the grace and mercies of our Lord.
 
I thank the Lord for each bit of good news that we   receive for each person, and the changes that have occurred  in each of their lives. I also thank the Lord for His presence with us whether in life or death, because we know that in all things the will of God is perfect. AMEN.
 
Let this be a special prayer for our nation, that our leaders, no matter who they are, that they will be convicted through the righteousness of God's word, and be reminded that the Lord is Master over 
all things  and that they would understand that He is the one who has given them authority to govern the people of this Nation. And let this be not for political leaders only, but all leaders; Spiritual, Business, Military, and all those who serve that they will seek the Lord. Also; Let it be known that as Christians and citizens we should be setting an example for others to see and follow, so that we can have a truly God fearing, God following relationship with God for our country once again. AMEN.
 
Continue to proclaim the name of Jesus all throughout the year, that He be lifted up. For Jesus has said; If we confess Him before men, He will confess us before His Father who is in heaven. And if we deny Him before men, He will deny us before His Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10: 32,33; In all these things, let us give God the glory. AMEN.
 
Remember this page is for anyone who is suffering or having problems that you would like prayer for. Or if you have a praise report thanking God, for a blessing for your life or someone you know, we will be glad to add it in. Just plan on getting the requests in by Fridays if at all possible, and I will do my best to see that they are added on the following weeks  prayer list beginning on Sunday afternoon.
  
Sincerely
Rev. Leonard A. Young
