Prayers Are Needed................

Connie & Dave
July 2010

I would like to ask each of you to remember a very precious sister in prayer today, tomorrow and in the days ahead. Connie and her soul mate, her dear husband, are facing a battle. Her precious husband, Dave, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Preliminary tests have shown the cancer to already have spread beyond the confines of the prostate. Just how much it has spread will not be fully known until after surgery. Dave is having surgery on Tuesday morning.

Please pray for Dave, Connie and their precious family as they face the days ahead. Pray for healing according the perfect will of the Lord, for strength and for wisdom for the medical personnel as they approach this ordeal. Connie just lost her Mom a couple of weeks ago and Dave lost his Dad just a few short months back. They have been through trials and have remained constant in their devotion to the Lord and to each other. It would bless my heart to know each of you are praying for them as they face this battle.

Are any of you in trouble? Then you should pray.
Are any of you happy? Then sing songs of praise.
Are any of you sick? Then send for the elders of the church
to pray over you. Ask them to anoint you with oil
in the name of the Lord.
The prayer offered by those who have faith
will make you well. The Lord will heal you...
...Pray for one another so that you might be healed.
The prayer of a godly person is powerful.
It makes things happen.
Elijah was just like us. He prayed hard that it wouldn't rain.
And it didn't rain on the land for three and a half years.
Then he prayed again. That time it rained.
And the earth produced its crops.

James 5: 13-18  (NIRV)

 Godly people cry out, and the Lord hears them.
He saves them from all of their troubles.
The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken.
He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.
Anyone who does what is right may have many troubles.
But the Lord saves him from all of them.

Psalm 34:17-19  (NIRV)
