Title: Very Urgent Prayer Requests.... Part 2
Post by: Richard Myers on December 28, 2005, 09:17:00 AM
Part 1 of this topic is now 31 pages so we need this second part. Thank you for joining together in prayer for all who come soliciting our prayers, especially the "urgent" ones. God is not only glorified by such, but He is pleased when we come to Him asking in faith and in His Son's name.

Jusroz's grandmother Mable is just out of surgery from a broken hip. She is 94 and in pain and  not eating. Please join with us in prayer for her. Jusroz asks "that we pray for God to heal the right hip where she had the surgery and that God will comfort her and make his presence felt with her. Also that God will be with her mind and she will recognize her family and know they are with her and wont let her be hurt by God's grace. The other problem she is not eating and her blood sugars are running low. Please pray that she will feel better and start eating and be more coherent."

I have just recently learned and am truly saddened that one of the Remnant Online moderators, Sis Ele, passed away earlier this month. From what I could glean from her posted messages, I believe she made her calling and election sure before leaving this world. My prayers go out to her family to the effect that they too will be ready to go back home with Jesus when Christ is seen coming in the Clouds of His Glory.

My husband has just abandoned the children and I two days ago. I am hurting deeply, although still rather numb, I suspect. The babies are baffled and missing their daddy. The two year old asked to pray for her daddy, so we prayed together. She prayed, "Dear Jesus, Please help daddy to be nice to mommy, and be safe. In Jesus' Name, Amen." Please join with us in praying for their daddy to choose to come home and stay. Pray for strength and courage for me. Thank you, and God bless....

Dear Father in heaven, you see this hurting family. The children are hurting not understanding why their daddy is gone, or why their mom is so sad. And Mom is so torn and yet needs strength to carry on for her little ones. We pray this evening Father, that you will give them peace, and love and strength to carry on. Bless and be with them.
And for Daddy Lord, there is pain and suffering too. He must be feeling very worthless at this point. It is so hard to turn around once a mistake like this has been made. Give this daddy the decision of the prodigal son Lord, that he will see his error and that You Lord will show him that he is able and worthy through Christ to go back and be the daddy and husband he should be.

Please shine Your loving kindness on this whole family dear Lord Jesus. I pray this in Your Name and for Your Sake. Amen

Blessed Father:

Thank you for bringing Linda to our forum in fellowship and need. Please keep a covering over her family so that she will be able to take care of the children and feel Your love and care for her.

The children Lord, be with them, let them know that their Heavenly Father is with them and that You are there in their need.

May you be able to open the heart of their daddy that he will realize that he needs to go back home and be with his wife and children, that they need him to be the head of the home and a light of Your character.

When one of us hurt Father we all hurt. Help us to help Linda as much as we can.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen

Linda:

Dearest Sister Linda, we sorrow with you over your situation. There can be few things if any that are more painful than watching our children suffer. Take comfort that Jesus is at your side. He will be there continually to give you both wisdom and strength. Your children are young enough today that they will be encouraged as you are. Know that there are many, many brothers and sisters that are and will be praying for you and your family.

God will work things out for the best. It is hard to see now what that will be, but you may claim His promise that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. He will turn Satan's evil to good as we abide in Christ.

Do you have a church family to help you?

Heavenly Father, you know the pain and suffering that our dear sister is going through. Please comfort her as only you can do. Draw her very close to you and comfort her children through her. You know all of the details in this family and you can work in ways that we know nothing of. We ask you to do this for this family's salvation and their happiness. Send those who are sensitive to our sisters needs to help her in this very difficult time. Hold her in your arms and keep this family warm and safe during these cold winter nights, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Please pray for my parents.  I just got home this afternoon and found an email from my dad.  My mom was in a bad car accident Monday--t-boned by a guy who ran a red light.  Most of her ribs are broken, as is her sternum.  She is in huge pain, and has an epidural to manage the pain, so she can breathe properly.  She'll be in the hospital several days and off work several weeks.

My dad, as you may remember, is diabetic--I pray that he remembers to eat correctly so that he doesn't have a blood sugar episode at night with no-one there to catch it (as has happened in the past).

Thank-you.

Hi Michelle:

Both your parents are in my prayers. I understand your concern for your father. Is there anyone would stay with him until your mom is able to get home, get better and help him?

How old are they? It must be driving you nuts to not be able to get to them, I know it would me. Most important she is alive and will get better.

Blessed Father:

I pray for the healing of Michelle's mom and the watchful angels over her father to take care of himself. Bless them with your peace and love while she heals and is able to get back to the road of recovery and health.

Give peace to Michelle to know that her parents are in your hands and no matter what she will feel the peace in walking with you in faith and in trust.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen

Dear Heavenly Father, please be with Sister Michelle's mother and father. Be with the surgeon as he operates. Comfort our dear sister and her father also. It is hard to be so far away when such a difficulty happens. But, you are right there to help all involved. And, you are the One who holds all in your hands. Use this situation for the benefit of all and for your honor and glory. Watch over Sister Michelle's father. Give him wisdom and strength to eat what is good for him so that he will not suffer from high blood sugar. Give Sister Michelle peace as she knows that you hear her prayers and ours for her parents, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Sister Michelle, our prayers will continue in our daily worship in my family as I am sure many will do who read your prayer request. We suffer with you as you wish you were there with them. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to pray with you.

Heavenly Father, you know the situation with our dear Sister Marie and Sister Carol, please manifest your presence to them. Comfort them in their trial. This world is not our home. Help us to see that we are only here for a brief time and then we will be free from the pain and suffering that is our lot in this world. Thank you for working in Sister Marie's life. In her suffering she has drawn close to you. Bless her even more than you have. Reveal your love and your presence that she may be lifted above this world, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Sister Marie, there is a fire similar to the one that Mishak, Shadrak, and Abednigo were placed in. God allows us to placed in ths fire. He is the One who has His hand on the temperature control. It is for our own good that He allows this trial. "All" things do work for our good because we love Him.

There is a particular book in the Bible that will help us when we are in the middle of this fire. Job suffered, not on account of his sin, but for his own good. It is a spiritual battle that we are involved in and we know who wins!

Another Biblical example that can help us is the experience of Paul. He was given a "thorne" in his side for a purpose. If Paul needed this thorne, then I do also. It keeps us dependent upon the Lord.

So, I guess what I am encouraging you with is that we can indeed glory in our tribulation for it will work for our God and God's glory. When in the fire, it is hard. We only need to look at our Saviour in the garden or on the cross and our trial is made easier. He has prepared the way for us.

I know that it hurts to see your child suffer, but even this is in God's control. Keep your eyes fixed upon the Saviour and when the testing and trials are over, you will know that God was with you.

Heavenly Father, I pray for my sister. Comfort her in the midst of her trial and her daughter also. Only you can lift her up beyond this pain. Help her to see beyond it. Give her a lesson to share with others through her poetry. Give her wisdom and grace to honor you, I pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Sister Glass:

The Holy Spirit has many names, but the one that comes to mind is Comforter. There is a reason for that and we should seek the Comforter in our trials and situations that require us more than most times to seek Him in our needs.

There could be some practical reasons why Carol is going through hard time right now. Do a checklist to see if she has changed anything or lacks something. That can help. I know how easy it is to feel good for a long time and then slack in what I should do and start to go downhill from stopping.

This is the time we need to reach out in fellowship to our brothers and sisters for prayer and you have done that. That is what a family is for.

Most important at times such as these we draw even closer to our God. It  is satan's desire that we put a wall between Him and ourselves, but we must never do that. This is the time we must let go and let God do in us what His powerful will can help us do.

Take care dear sister and know that you are in my prayers and love.

Father:

Please help my sister in her trials with her daughter Carol. You know their needs and concerns are. May they draw even closer to You during this time in their need.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen

His name is Mike. He is nineteen years old and destroying his life with drugs and drinking.

For some reason God has brought this young man into my life to help. For some reason he keeps coming back, wanting to go to church, visits for days with our pastor down in Lone Pine, b ut still the drugs and drinking have their claws in him.

Today PST at 1:30 he is to be picked up and taken to a AA meeting. This is to be his first step so please pray that he is there and goes.

I appreciate all that come to this place and read this and pray for him.

I understand about the drugs and alcohol addictions.  I, too, have struggled with many addictions.  Satan does not care what addictions he inflicts, just that they work for him to keep us from hearing the voice and prodding of The Holy Spirit.  

I have not drank for over 20 years now.  Praise God!  I attended AA meetings for many years and found that it was very important to do the things 'suggested' by those in recovery and in the Blue Book of Alcoholics Annonymous.  Get a sponsor, preferably one that you don't particularly like!  (what I mean by that is one that doesn't feel the need to make you like them.  One that will look right into you and tell you the truth, and knows your heart.  Not a feel good yes man, or woman)  And by the way, stick with men for men and women for women.  Newly recovered drunks tend to fall in love easily, without realizing it is not the real thing.  Stay clear of relationship changes and other major changes in your life for at least the first year of sobriety.  The emotions are on a roller coaster and satan is waiting for you to get on.

You need help.  And God can, and will, if He is sought.

I also had addictions to drugs, tobacco, etc. etc. etc.  In short, everything that feels good.  And I also realize that I am an excessive person.  Everything I do I tend to do to excess.  So, the safest thing for me to do is worship my Lord and study His word, to excess!

Amen, Brother Stephen! By beholding we become changed. If we will contemplate God's love for us, if we will keep Jesus centered in our minds, we shall be "changed into the same (His) image from glory to glory"!

We all are in continual need of being changed. We come int this world with a fallen nature that is depraved. It is only through the Spirit of Christ that we can be changed. And, this God has promised and made for provision for at great expense.

Thank you for coming  to prayer requests of your need. I will think and prayer for you until all is over and you are home to let us know how it all went.

Dear Father:

I come before you in prayer request for Sister Esther. Please bring comfort and peace to her heart and soul as she goes into surgery for this bladder problem. Let your hands guide the doctors and nurses that they are able to do the healing work that will make her better.

For those of us that have been under surgery we know the risks and fears that come with it. Please bring peace and trust in You that Your will be done.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen!

Dear Sister Esther, I do hope that you will do fine and we will be so happy to hear from you as to how you are, when you are feeling good enough to be on TRO again.
In-between time we will be praying for you.

Dear Father in Heaven, we ask that you will be with this dear sister of ours. You know already how this surgery went for Esther. Please be with her and help her pain to be small and shot lasting without infection setting in or any other problems. And we do also pray according to Your All Knowing Will.

I got snowed in yesterday, so I can only think that perhaps yesterday wasn't the day I was supposed to get this surgery. It didn't feel right anyway, and I found out about it last minute.
So I have another time set up for Tuesday and I know the Lord will be with me and care for me. He knows what is best and knows the proper timing.

Thank you all for your prayers,

Father - you know this woman, Sheila J. Lee, Congresswoman from Houston, Texas. We ask that your Spirit will stir her heart to be an upright representative of You not only in her private life but also in her public life - for if her private spiritual life is right, her public life will be as well. To represent her faith through Adventism in such a light that she can have a holy influence in all she does, with all in whom she comes in contact.

Father, You need a right representation through your children. We bring this sister to You in a united prayer. That You may sustain her, that You will instill within her a willingness to be guided by You in all her representations. Father, we thank you for the abundance of blessings You give us every single day of our lives. Without You, we could not breathe, we could not think. Thank You for life in this life - and for life eternal when we will see Your face. This is our prayer, in the name of Your Son, Jesus, we ask.

We come before you to pray for our dear sister Esther. Please be with her and the surgeons as she has this surgery on her bladder. Help her to heal quickly and that she remain safe in Your care and trust.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers for my safety and the success of this surgery.

I am here to tell you today that the surgery went exceedingly well, and that my recovery in the post op room went extremely rapidly. The nurses were saying how amazed they were at how rapidly my pain was under control, with minimal drugs and how quickly I became alert with no side effects.

Most exciting however, is that even though I have been on chronic pain medication for several years, and have always still been in pain despite the medications, I am in basically no pain at this time. I am uncertain if this will last or not, but I feel much different than before the surgery.
Almost as if I have more energy and something has just changed inside me.

They do the expansion of the bladder and it is for diagnosis but some people have the added benefit of increased capacity as well as reduced or eliminated pain for months at a time, at which time they do another procedure. It appears that I may be one of these fortunate people.

I'd like to praise the Lord for His faithfulness to us His children, and to thank you all for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate you so much.  :)

God bless you all,
Sister Esther

I am already clearing of much of that and feel as if I am slimming down already.

My neighbors, James and Carolyn Condon (along with a little adopted boy of ten) have lived in this valley for close to twenty-five years. Carolyn committed suicide yesterday morning. She has been in and out of a mental institution for the last two years, not being able to cope with any part of life. She didn't want to be a wife any more, and the saddest part of all, she did not want to be a mother any more. The husband was finally going to give her a divorce which would have been final on Feb. 15.  

Prayers are requested for the husband, a grown son of twenty, and the young boy. They have all struggled with the anguish the mother has been experiencing. Her husband was one of those who came to help dig the grader out of the snow in my driveway a few weeks ago. That night he talked with tears in his eyes of the agony the family has been experiencing. Nothing was helping Carolyn out of her severe mental possessions. She was not a praying woman, so I ask that we pray for the remaining family - to be able to heal after so many years of torment with a displaced, out of touch with reality wife and mother.

Heavenly Father, this world is full of pain and suffering. We long to go home. But, we are here to be a blessing to others, to help them find peace amid the hurt. We pray for James and his two children. Comfort them as only you can. Use Sister Sybil to minister to this family in their need. Send others to help where Sister Sybil cannot. Turn this tragedy into a blessing for this family, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Kind Heavenly Father, how my heart aches with understanding at the pain this family is going through. Please dear Father, help them to come to You. Out of every bad experience You can use it to bring people to You. Open their hearts Lord to hearing Your still small voice. And let them hear it in the voice of Sister Sybil and others who may try and help with Your leading. Provide in their hearts dear Lord, Peace and a desire to understand about You more. I pray in Jesus Holy Name, Amen..

The situation with the 3ABN ministry is not good. There is much talk in the world and in the church about activities in this ministry. It brings reproach upon the church and the ministry. If we all could pray for a resolving of the difficulty so that God can be glorified through this ministry that He raised up, God will be honored.

Post by: Sister Marie on February 16, 2007, 04:01:00 PM
Dear Heavenly Father,

It is with a heavy heart that we bring 3ABN before you dear Father in heaven. You started this ministry to spread the Truth around the world. Satan is sore with anger against them and will do all he can to stop this ministry. You know Lord, for I know you are watching; and only you (not us) know all the truth about this situation. We pray dear Father that you will intervene and make them whole again. Either whole from within or if slander, we pray that you free them from that.... whatever the truth is. Bless each person there that they do and live in the way you want them to. I ask all this in Jesus name, Amen.

Sadly we all possess this defect outside of Christ. Some to a greater degree than others. Moses, the meekest man on earth manifested this defect when he took his eyes off of Jesus and became angry with God's people and struck the Rock.

Here is one of the truths that God uses to help us along. When we are in great trial, we will be strengthened to know that God has allowed it for our good. How is that?  "And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience."

But, that is not the end of the matter. We love Jesus and want to glorify Him in our lives. How can we do this?

"And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."  Romans 5:3-5.

Heavenly Father, your dear child, Sybil has asked for help. Please answer our prayers that she will be drawn closer to you and be given grace to endure the trials that you measure each day for her. Thank you that we can understand that the trials or for our good. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Father, Eternal Father in heaven, Thank You for Your bountiful mercies, for Your love, for Your long-suffering with us in this sin-sick world. How pitiful we must look in Your eyes when we exhibit such traits yet remaining in our hearts. Father, remove them - take them from me - and place a right Spirit within me. A good witness, I cannot be with this trait left unchecked, unconfessed, therefore unforgiven. Forgive me for this lack.

Holy One - place a Spirit of forbearance of long-suffering with my heart, give me the Spirit of grace you so freely extend to me, is my prayer in the Name of the Savior, Jesus. Amen.

Dear Father in heaven, the God that can take care all His people. Sister Esther is really having a problem with threatening and ungodly neighbors. Dear Lord, you know that Sister Esther is one of your own. We pray for her safety and that of her family. Also for patience and wisdom in how to deal with people such as this. We pray that the law will uphold their own ruling and get these people out, but if not, I know there is a reason for it. Help Sister Esther to know how to handle this with Your wisdom. I thank you for answering this request in Your time and in Your way. We do ask it in Jesus name. If there is a way to bring glory to Your Name in this father, show Sister Esther how and fill her with the needed Holy Spirit to guide her in this. Amen

Last evening I got a call from my daughter, Frani. She has been experiencing boils, unusual boils that leave her body exhausted throughout their duration. This third one on her breast had to be lanced and a wick inserted for drainage. She felt no better, yet worse several days afterward.  The doctor suspects MRSA - dread! We will know for sure on Monday. I read through the MRSA thread, showing her the information on this nasty mega staph bug. So that thread was vital in my understanding of the seriousness of it. Meantime I am with her in Santa Fe and request your prayers.

As a Christian mother of a worldly daughter I always ask myself if this is the event that will turn her eyes toward Jesus. There have been so many ... yet nothing. Would you pray a specific prayer with me that if this is MRSA, that the Lord will work on her heart through it, if this is His plan on this specific life event?

Heavenly Father, nothing is as important in our lives as the conversion of our children. We want the little flock you gave us to be in heaven with us. Our Sister Sybil understands that you will either allow or cause difficulties in the lives of sinners that they may turn to you for help. We pray for our dear sister's daughter, Frani. Use this situation today to turn her mind to you. Send the Holy Spirit to open her mind and heart to your presence, your power, and your love. Give Sister Sybil wisdom to know what to say and do to work with you in this situation.

Use this illness to bring Frani to you and if healing her will bring honor and glory to you and salvation to our sister's daughter, we ask you to heal her. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Sister Sybil, How I feel for you. I too have prayed the same prayers many times. We need to pray for what is most important first and the body second.

Dear Father in Heaven, We do come before you this prepreation day with a serious request. Our dear Sister Sgbil has a daughter named Frani that has not choosen yet to come into the fold of Your Truth. I pray dear Lord, that You will touch Frani's heart with a touch that only You can do. With Your Love Lord, please have the Holy Spirit enter into her heart and change it from a cold heart toward Your Truth to a heart that yearns for the Truth. Help her to be filled with a urgency in her heart to be ready to meet You. We thank You for this Father.
According to Your Will, we also ask that You will heal her of her illness. There is nothing, NOTHING, that You cannot heal with ease. But You and You alone, know if it is best for her to live on. You know the beginning to the end and we leave her life in Your hands dear Lord.

We ask these things in the name of Jesus, Your Son. Amen

And Sabbath blessings we received! A quick recap ... being in town with Frani and Liam, the hours leading up to Sabbath were more than I could have wished for. Thank you for your prayers.

With Frani feeling puny, we were quiet and reflective. With the schedule of events for SS, church and the Sabbath afternoon funeral, it was a must that the music be in place, so a quiet practice ensued. Frani joined me in her living room and began singing with me. We sang and sang and then we cried ... we reviewed songs of her childhood and sang them. Then we worked on some new ones she could sing with me for special music for church sometime in the future. At one point, she burst into tears and cried full throttle. The Holy Spirit was in this place. The gratitude sitting in a mother's heart was simply overwhelming. Thank you, Eternal Father, for Your Spirit!

Do you know the song, "Then Jesus Came"? My younger brother and I grew up in church singing it as a duet from age 10 (me) and 8 (him). He was like my twin born two years apart. Frani has always known the song - so we sang it. Again, tears were flowing as never before - the words piercing the heart! Such a moving experience we have not had as mother and daughter in years. It was a joyful yet heart-wrenching way to bring in the Sabbath. It appeared as if she had a tiny glimpse of her need. I know it was true for me.

Then on Sabbath, my little primary group sat spell-bound at Peter's thrice denial of Jesus ... and the pastor preached Romans 7 of all things - we have that ongoing conversation here. He was spot on! Glad to hear it and we were blest. Then we had communion.

After church, choir practice was one of willing hearts, ready and able to lift their incredible voices to the praise of One. What a blessing. There was not a blip on the radar screen.

Then the funeral of one of our dear members at two in the afternoon. The sanctuary was packed with state legislators, the secular community, his friends and extended family. The state of the dead was presented so beautifully in its correct light. His favorite song was "Amazing Grace" and the congregation sang every verse with feeling and a seeming connection. That song alone has the power from above to convert the heart.

The service ended with "The Love of God" sang by one old woman whose heart was so full of a Friday evening experience with her daughter and the Holy Spirit that she wasn't even nervous. How grateful I am for the love of God - how RICH and PURE - how MEASURELESS and STRONG! It shall forevermore endure - the saints' and angels' song! Amen and amen!

Originally posted by Sister Glass:
We had a blessed day yesterday too. Afther S.S. (which I enjoy a lot) we had a wonderful sermon by a Elder who was in the hospital only two days or so before. A great message. Instead of staying for potluck we went home to eat (Carol and I). Then my friend at Church called and she and her daughter and Carol and I went to the park in Red Bluff and fed the birds. Beautiful sea gulls and malyards and gueese. Such beautiful creations of the Lord.

Last night Carol did two things that she never did before. For one, she asked me to come and pray with her. This is something I do each morning and evening. But she asked this time and that was so so precious. When done, she did not really seem like she was ready for sleep. (She talks so little) yet, I was impressed, so I asked her if she wanted to talk. She smiled. I waited.... and waited. And then she started talking about heaven. (something she especially needs to think about. Oh, it was so precious to hear her talk to me one on one. And we talked about heaven and the beautiful things will be a part of it. We talked about having a free spirit in the Lord. Nothing holding us back. We both suffer with this problem in different ways. Her totally and me with certian things. We had such a wonderful time last night. A beautiful blessing from the Lord. After being so ill with her three breakdowns last year, heaven and forgiveness and God's love and promises are becoming real to her again. Praise God!!!!

My friend above.... her husband may be deathly ill and die from it even. They are waiting for the tests to come back. They are also ready as a family, for the outcome, even if it is bad. These people are middle age with a young daughter. His name is Floyd. And in the last year especially, God has brought him so far. He is now a Elder in our Church and preaches like the other elders. It too is so precious the change we have seen in some people. So please keep Floyd in your prayers.     :)


Sister Glass: it was a Sabbath for mothers and daughters, wasn't it? I am so happy with your sweet, sweet experience with Carol. Our children, very special children cling to a mother's breast, depending upon us at critical events in their lives even though they are gown. Sometimes the words are slow in coming ... and what cannot be said can certainly be expressed in a look, in a mood. God's incredible gift to humanity, beside Himself, is children.

Our girls are hurting, in need of healing. To be a vessel used by Him, we can facilitate it through love and gentle kindness, pointing them to the Great Physician whose medicine to heal all that needs healing is beyond our finding out. He can touch those painful chords within their little minds and throughout their little bodies that hold no access to the human touch. The Divine is their answer. Our prayers for them are unceasing.

God bless you, Marie, as you travel this road with your dear Carol. My prayers will always include you and your daughter. xox S

His toe got infected and he may lose his foot if they cannot get rid of this infection. He is a diabetic and this could be very bad news for him.

He is not SDA, but he is a good man and kind to so many. Loves animals and a good friend of mine, so please keep him in your prayers.

Dear Lord, please help my friend Jake and take care of him and that he will be healed and able to keep his foot. You know the end from the beginning and can do all things, so I please ask that you help him at this time.

Thank you so much! I got a call this morning and it was my sweet brother. He told me to "go to church!" And that, I did. He said there is a lesion on his left Ascending and Descending artery with 70% blockage. A stent was inserted. Interesting that stents along with medications have been in the new just this week. He is resting well and appreciates the prayers as well. Thank you once more.

He must be recovered to the fold. He knows too much to let it slide. This is a constant prayer of mine - that he will be recovered. He did not leave willingly. Sadly, he was not followed up for biblical recovery. With the help of all of heaven, it will happen.

Dearest Father:

I bring this prayer to you for Brother Wendell and that he is able to get the help once again with his medical problems that could take his life at this time.

You know his constant medical issues that are with him and how they affect his very life from day to day. Please be with him as he struggles with this next bout and that he will recover once again.

SA, we will be praying for your family. It is very sad to see someone we love suffer. Soon we shall see a different order of things.

"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son."

Eternal Father: this board is full of prayer requests for healing from bodily illness and a true need of Your watch care for our safety and for the ultimate healing that is of the heart. Our lives are not our own. Give to us what we need from Your perspective – You alone know us. Forgive us for our failings, lift us up to a higher plane wherein we may dwell with You, while we work to hasten that Day when there will be no more heartache, no more sickness, no more mourning the loss of those you gave us to love. We await Your return – we wish to dwell with You. Lord, fit us, cause us through Your Spirit to be willing to be made willing is our prayer – in the blessed name of Jesus … Amen.

I do not know this person myself, but I am putting the information down in case some of you do. Either way, he needs our prayers.
=========================================
On Tuesday, April 10, Northern California Conference President Jim Pedersen and his wife Debi visited Mark Blue, NCC executive secretary, and his wife Christy at the hospital. Mark was hospitalized yesterday due to some symptoms he had been experiencing. He has now tested positive for cancer in multiple areas. This seems to be unrelated to the prostate cancer Mark previously faced.

Mark and Christy are exploring treatment options that will be best for Mark's needs. They hope that he will be able to go home in the next couple of days.

In Mark's absence, please direct all calls to Suzan Williams, Mark's secretary. You may also reach her at swilliams@ncc.adventist.org.

Today's confirmed cancer diagnosis is very challenging news for Mark, his family and friends. All of us here at our office are extremely saddened. Please continue praying earnestly for Mark, Christy and their children.

We all have so much to be thankful for these days, yet there is pain and suffering as well as illnesses all around us.

My long time friend Carolyn on her property I live on needs special prayer for her husband Jake. He has serious heart problems and they leave for Carson City on Sunday afternoon for some tests and what options they have. Please keep them both in your prayers for the next five days.

Also my friend Jane, her horses board here is having very difficult problems with a need for surgery and financial help with the VA. She goes before the VA board regarding her benefits on April 19th. Her surgery is on her neck which the fusion that was done last year looks like it messed up from the accident she had this year and needs to have it repaired.

This will require her to be in a almost full upper body brace and a long after care need.  The doctor also has said that he might not be able to do the surgery that it might be even worse after than it is right now.

Please keep these special people that I love dearly in your prayers.

Dear Lord:

You know the needs of each person here on this forum and the need for comfort and faith to deal with the things that are going on. Please give them Your peace and courage to deal with the things that are happening in their lives and to trust in You.

Please keep all the doctors and nurses in Your hands that they will do the right thing for them.

We pray dear Father for SA and the love  that is near death and give comfort to them all in their time of need.

We give thanks that we can talk to you of our needs and hopes knowing that Your wisdom will do that which is best for all.

We take courage knowing You are with us during these difficult times and even in good times.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen

Prayer is truly needed for everyone associated with the Virginia Tech massacre.

Eternal Father: You know all things, see all things. We know your Spirit will comfort those families whose children are no more among the living. Help them to find some peace amid this unspeakable tragedy. Sin abounds, yet Your Spirit is still working out Your purposes. Guide each of us through these most uncertain days that we will be, above all things, faithful unto death. We yearn for heaven! In the name of sweet Jesus - Amen.

On my way home today I saw a truck pulled over and a woman walking away from the truck. Then there was smoke and moments later, flames under her truck.

She was on her cell to the NM State Police and her family as I walked up to her. In tears, she told me her truck lost power and started smoking. In her utter panic, she told me she is a teacher’s aide, has five children – one of which is autistic, and has a disabled husband. She was en route to one of her children’s sporting events some sixty miles away. She was so distraught – as any of us would be while watching our automobile go up in flames. My concern was for her to realize “it is just a truck, you are safe and unharmed.” Another concern was for a forest fire to erupt as a result of her exploding truck.

As we waited for the fire department and police to arrive she said, “This is going to be trouble. My drivers’ license is suspended. I didn’t pay a ticket because I didn’t have any money.” She looked at me through tears and with such intense desperation. I told her, “Tell the truth – don’t hold back anything.” I hugged her, and then asked if she believed in God. She said she did. So I asked her if she wanted me to pray with her. Oh, was she happy. So we hugged and I prayed saying Jesus knows her, knows her situation and predicament – to help her to thoroughly tell the truth and asked Him to help her through paying the consequences of some difficult decisions and actions.

We then waited … the police came, got her information and she told them the truth – Thank You Jesus!  In time they realized there was an outstanding bench warrant for her arrest for failure to pay her fine and appear in court. Her fine was $500, the failure to appear was $308. The tow truck operator added insult to injury by saying he required cash to tow her truck “wherever she wanted.” It was awful and getting worse.  She had no money and had no way of getting any money.

Eventually they arrested her – handcuffs and all. But they did let her alert her family to come to her rescue. The last thing I heard her say to her children on the phone was, “We will pick you up after the game. Mommy is all right, everything is all right.” It is my prayer that she was able to do just that and that she will, in fact, be all right – that she will be given a way to pay her fines and find some encouragement through a reminder that God is with us through the most pressing circumstances.

Her name is Elaine Baca. She endured some very difficult trials today. Please join me in prayer for this woman. She is carrying a load of burdens. That she may turn her eyes upon Jesus is my prayer.

Send your Holy Spirit to help this lady strengthen her relationship with you. Send people into her life to help her with her temporal needs. There are many in this world who would do your will if they were given some help. Thank you for allowing us to be your hands in helping the poor. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

My friend and neighbor Carolyn and her husband who was having heart problems was rushed from the Bishop Hospital to Sacramento last night. He had heart surgery and just got out a few hours ago.

The surgery went well, but he is having a lot of kidney problems and they are only functioning at 54 percent right now.

So please keep Jake in your prayers that he will have a good recovery and be home soon.

A gentleman who has seen the rougher side of life, came to my home the other day after I'd met him at a yard sale. He professed to being very attracted to me even though he was married by his own admission.

As we talked, he mentioned that his wife wouldn't go to church with him. I offered the suggestion that perhaps it wasn't physical attraction he felt for me, but rather something he saw in me that was missing from his life.

He nodded and broke down in tears. I offered to pray for him and hugged him. I invited him to join us at our church. He pointed to his clothes and the beer in his hand, and I said, "God has brought you here for a reason. You are meant to come to our church and fellowship with us."

Please, pray that he will have the courage of his conviction and the Lord will continue to press upon his heart the desperate need of our times. One of the amazing things he said was, "We're in the last days."

I was just amazed. I said yes, amen! We are in the Last Days. Pray that he will join us and worship with us, and his wife as well.

Dear Sister Esther,
What a wonderful story of sharing here. What is his name? There are a few of us here in this church that are feeling the ergency of getting ready, that we truly are in the last days. From his words Christ is also preparing people in the world with the feeling that we are in the last days and that Jesus is coming back soon.

Dear Heavenly Father, We love and honor You as King and Lord of Your people. We pray Lord for this dear man who is being led by You. He is feeling that he needs to come right with you. We pray not only for him, but for his dear wife who for some reason does not seem to have a desire toward Thee. Please be with them both Lord and lead them to Truth. Help them to both know that You love them Truly and that You have a people on this earth that do follow you and are preparing for Your soon coming. We ask this is the name of Jesus, and pray it for His sake, Amen

About four weeks ago, my friend Eric called to tell me he was diagnosed with leukemia. We talked and prayed together.

Last Tuesday, while driving my truck, a passing motorist alerted me to a fire that had started in my brakes. I was able to eventually get the fire out with no loss of cargo, and finish my run once the trailer was repaired. Because of this, I was able to get home about 18 hours sooner than I had originally planned, and made the decision to go and visit Eric.

We had a wonderful time together, though it was obvious that he was getting weaker. We prayed together, I read precious passages to him and sang to him. A pastor came to do communion with us. It was obvious to everyone that he was the happiest and most rested since his diagnosis.

Unfortunately, I was unable to stay with him more than a day, since I had to return home and it was a long drive. I wish I could have stayed longer.

Eric passed away about 12:20 this morning.

Please keep his mother and sister in your prayers.

The power of prayer to heal and save is such a blessing these days. So many are opening their hearts to the voice of God speaking to them and preparing them for the call of God to come to Him.

Some will find it in death and others find it through a meeting, but God works and man works for the saving of souls.

Thanks for sharing these two wonderful experience that lift us up and praise God.

My friend Carolyn's husband Jake had to be flown last night to a hospital in Reno due to more problems with his heart.

His pulse was back down to 30 again and this time they are going to put a pacemaker in to keep his heart ticking. Last weekend he had two stents put into his heart and came home a very happy man to be alive, but now another weekend of problems and near death situation has come once again.

Dear Father:

Please be with Carolyn and Jake that all will go well and that he will pull through once more and come home. If not, please reach Him and I pray that he will open his heart to your voice and know that you are is loving Father and Creator.

Be with the doctors as they do this surgical procedure and with the nurses that will be caring for him that he will recover and be home soon.

In Jesus Precious Name, Amen!

Dear Father in Heaven,

There is so much sorrow and pain down here. We have Jake, a good friend of Liane's, who is so ill and near death. Dear Father, only You know why he is this ill. What we have eatten and how we have lived all our lives answers that question so much of the time. Besides this, You have Your reasons too, for allowing these things to take place. Please Father, I do not pray for healing at this time unless it is Your Will, but I do pray for this dear couple to open their eyes to the fact that they need to be ready for Your soon coming. Please work upon their hearts dear Lord and draw them to Thee.
I pray this is the name of Jesus, Your Son.

Sister Glass:

Thanks for your prayer and good words and all is very true.

He tolerated the pacemaker implant very well and was recovering at a good rate. My friend Jane picked Carolyn up last night and brought her to their home for rest and to save money.

Jane was in tears as for once in her current life she is able to help others instead of others just helping her. It felt good and she was so glad to be able to be part of the needs of someone who is it is very hard to ask.

Yes in these days as we grow older we see more and more of this. the young let it role off their back and do not realize what a time we live in because they are so distracted by the world, how so sad.

Let us give thanks to God for another day of life and blessings as our God is a good God and a living God that cares for His creation.

Right now Carolyn is in the ER with this morning having chest pains. They have tested her and monitoring her, but not sure if they will admit her yet. Her husband Jake is doing well and recovering.

I am praying that it was just stress pains that she was having from the last few weeks of what has been going on with Jake and it has come to hit her at this time.

Please keep in prayer for both of them.

I think we will see a lot more urgent prayers these days as life is taking very hard turns and trials, but the Lord is good.

Yes, urgent prayers are prayers that need to be made now, not tomorrow.

We all will die, at least most of us.  We all have mothers.  :) They will die also. My mother has been a great blessing to me and I am thankful for her. She is sick now. She has lived a long life and for that I am thankful. She has blessed me in many ways from my very birth. We all could give such a testimony. But, I want to express the joy I have of having her helping me in ministry.  She has helped in so many ways, not the least of which has been financial. Her help has enabled us to enjoy the Remnant Online.  If it was not for her support of me, I could not have devoted the time and resources to this ministry as well as so many others.

The year after the iron curtain came down in Romania, I was there and in Turkey. A number of general conference sessions and much else. All of this with her support....and she was not even a Seventh-day Adventist!

Well....by God's grace she is today. She is very ill. It came about very suddenly, so it is somewhat of a surprise. I don't know God's will for my mother, but He does. I just wanted to share my burden with my friends and ask for prayer for God's blessings whatever they may be to be extended to my mother in her time of need.

Thank you.   :)

Dear Father in Heaven, Brother Richard is suffering now, seeing his mother so ill. She has been a great help to him and his work and we want to thank you dear Lord for this willingness to be such a wonderful help. She has been there for him and walked along side of him, even tho she did not fully understand the Truth, she was a Christian in every way, in action. Her life my be closing, and maybe You have other plans. But we lay this dear women in Your all knowing arms dear Lord and we give her to You. Bless both brother Richard and his mother and family in this hard time, and raise her up again if this is Your will Lord. If not, we know that is the best for her and we will remember that when You close one door another opens with blessings and help. We ask this in Jesus Holy Name, Amen.

I need your help in prayer for my in-laws. They are in their eightys and were in pretty god health. Last week we learned my father-in-low has something that grew up behind his ear. We expect for some results after the analysis. Pray also for my mother-in-law. She lost her apetite and she needs a good night sleep. I feel kind of guilty being so far away from them (they are in Romania) and no possibility to go there before Christmas. I know we have a great God and pray to accept His will.

I request that prayer be made that God will soften the stony hearts of the administrators of this forum, who have falsely accused me, failed to prove their accusations, but rather banned me from access to this site, merely because I have faithfully upheld Adventist beliefs against the attacks of others on the historicist method of prophetic interpretation. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide them away from their support of Jesuit-based, preterist interpretation, and open their minds to reconsidering that historicist interpretation is essential to Adventist belief and spirituality. Pray that they will stop their ostracizing and banning of those who faithfully adhere to the principles of Adventism.

Brother Richard responded to this post, saying that I was untruthful. I shall correct my statement. I was banned, insofar as I know, only from the private forum discussions. However, those were precisely the ones in which I was most active. Brother Richard has repeatedly stated untruthfully that I have called people Jesuits here. What I have done is to say that to oppose historicist interpretation by an appeal to preterist interpretation is to follow the Jesuit practice in its historical opposition to Protestantism and reveals a direct or indirect influence of Roman Catholicism on the part of those who do so. That is not name-calling. That is merely the perception of a historical reality and its contemporary ramifications. The opposition to me on this forum has been so intense, so hurtful and so incredibly ruthless, that it raises the suspicion that I have hit a nerve more closely than was my intention or expectation. I have already inspired such accusatory behaviour towards me, that I no longer wish to participate here, if only for the motive of not being instumental in the loss of salvation for those who have mistreated me, finally by pretending that I was lying when I stated I have been banned from posting.
I went onto the Mod2 forum in good faith and willingly apologized to those who had been hurt by my words. I was met there by accusation after accusation, and no level of abject apology sufficed. Even the one hurt came to my defense, to no avail. There was no response to my appeal of August 15. I posted for two weeks on the few places that were open to me, but only met ostracism. If consciences are satisfied, let them be so. My conscience is clear, but I am aware of being wronged. "If thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remembrest that thy brother hath aught against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift." Matt. 5:23,24. All the while being banned from posting in the discussions where I had been active, I was open to reconciliation on the Mod2 forum, but have been ignored there since before August 15. I made certain that no one had anything against me there, but the rest of you have unresolved insults on record there. I have those things against you, and I have been waiting for a response there since August 15. You refuse to come and be reconciled to one you call "brother" and say you love. Your offering lies abandoned. Perhaps you think I am not important. I am certainly on this forum "one of the least of these" and continue to be treated so.
If you loved me and considered that matters had been finished on Mod2 forum, then why did you continue to ban me from the discussion I had formerly participated in? My original prayer request stands. I pray that God will soften your hearts of stone towards me. Otherwise, I tremble for your salvation, and plead with God not to allow this sin that you have committed against me to remain on your records.

Heavenly Father, we ask that you comfort our dear sister and her family as they struggle with the trials they now endure. Send the Holy Spirit to help them see past the difficulties to see your Son at their side. We do not know the facts, but you do. Your promise to your people that abide in Christ is that you will make all things work for their good. We testify that this is so. Your ways are best.

Take away Sister Adina's guilt with the thought that you are the not only the Comforter, but the Great Physician. That if we will trust in your love and your power, then all things will indeed work for our good. If our sister is not in your will, then help her to see it and to do it. We thank you for bringing into our fellowship and pray your blessings upon her and her family. We also pray that you will send one of your children to minister to this family in Romania. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Brother Thomas the untruthfullness of your accusation is seen by the fact that you posted here. If you were banned, then how is it you are posting? We asked to you stop calling people Jesuits and you would not. We continued to allow you to post in the non-SDA forums hoping you would behave, but all may see that you continue to call us names. I am sorry, but we now will have to block your posting privileges until you can control your desire to injure our work of proclaiming the gospel. To accuse and attack in this forum indicates how far removed you are from His Spirit. We love you and appreciate your desire to follow God, but you need to be more kind  to others who may not understand what you do and also to others who understand more than you do. Bearing false witness against God's people is a sin. You may do it innocently, but still you injure His cause.

Thank you Liane, Richard and all of you praying for my problems. I am happy to tell you my mother-in-law is feeling much better. Is my understanding it was only a bad indigestion that let her very weak for a while. Now her appetite is back and slowly she regains strength. We are still waiting for a diagnosis for my father-in-law. I'll let you know as soon as I'll learn. Praise God and thank you again.

My mom has struggled with a defective heart for most of her life, yet it has intensified over the last thirty years with conjestive heart failure. Monthly as much as 9 liters of fluid is removed from her tummy. This has been going on for close to a year. What a struggle she has endured, yet she is faithful.

This morning she did not recognize my dad. She was exceedingly afraid of him. So he called to have me talk with her with sweet words of reassurance, especially of God's love and watchcare. Through her suspended reality she said she was not worthy of His watchcare, but I reminded her that she was worth the price of the life of dear Jesus - just for her He would have died. She cried!

I ask for prayers of comfort and reassurance for this dear woman.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for your prayers for Mama. Over the past several days she has regained a level of oxygen that she is once more thinking clearly. It has been an answer to prayer and we are so grateful.

When a loved one loses their cognitive abilities, you have literally lost that person. It is Mama's mind that I love. Her body has betrayed her through generations of cardiac defect, but her mind, sweet Seventh-day Adventist Christian mind, is the one thing we long to hold on to.

Again, thank you for your prayers. They were sorely needed and sweetly answered.

Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide them away from their support of Jesuit-based, preterist interpretation, and open their minds to reconsidering that historicist interpretation is essential to Adventist belief and spirituality.

Heavenly Father, I know nothing of these 'interpretations'.  There is only one valid interpretation, that of Your Word.  We know that the only correct understanding of The Bible is that understanding led by The Holy Spirit.  Precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little.  Teach us all to prayerfully study Your word, leaving the understanding up to You and Your Holy Spirit.

Satan works in such deceptive ways, using truth but mingling just a little lie - to deceive and confuse.  We pray for cognizance to recognize those little lies, to stay on the path of Jesus' righteousness. 

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of a prophet.  Your words for this generation, given through Sister White, is such a blessing to all who will receive such understanding.  Amen

Brother Martin has requested our prayers for the people of Kenya. They are facing much violence after the national elections.   Violence in Kenya (http://208.109.58.155/smf/index.php?topic=7252.0)

Oh, Martin! To see the violence shown on CNN is one thing - and the world does see it - yet to be in the midst of it is yet another. Hold fast, dear brother.

We are living in the midst of an "epidemic of crime," at which thoughtful, God-fearing men everywhere stand aghast. The corruption that prevails, it is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Every day brings fresh revelations of political strife, bribery, and fraud. Every day brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life. Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide. Who can doubt that satanic agencies are at work among men with increasing activity to distract and corrupt the mind, and defile and destroy the body?--Ministry of Healing, pp. 142, 143.

And we can add to this, to disrupt the spreading of His message to starved souls and threatening the lives of His messengers!

Read the following lines and appropriate the sentiment as your own:


     Other refuge have I none,
        Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
     Leave, O leave me not alone!
        Still support and comfort me;
     All my trust on Thee is stayed,
        All my help from Thee I bring;
     Cover my defenseless head
        With the shadow of Thy wing.

My mom has struggled with a defective heart for most of her life, yet it has intensified over the last thirty years with conjestive heart failure. Monthly as much as 9 liters of fluid is removed from her tummy. This has been going on for close to a year. What a struggle she has endured, yet she is faithful.<P>This morning she did not recognize my dad. She was exceedingly afraid of him. So he called to have me talk with her with sweet words of reassurance, especially of God's love and watchcare. Through her suspended reality she said she was not worthy of His watchcare, but I reminded her that she was worth the price of the life of dear Jesus - just for her He would have died. She cried!<P>I ask for prayers of comfort and reassurance for this dear woman.

Thank you.   


"In times like these, we have a Savior!"

Mother's blood pressure is so low that she cannot take critical heart medication. The hospice nurse said "she is on her way out." Of course, that has been said before but there are other indications of this actually being the case this time.  She is rarely awake.

This quote is so very comforting:

 The Bible is the garden of God. Are you discouraged? Are you bereaved? The word of God tells you not to sorrow as those who have no hope, for there will be a relinking of the family chain. When we look upon our dead, we think of the morning when the trump of God shall sound, and when the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Over the rent sepulcher of Joseph, Christ proclaimed, "I am the resurrection and the life." A little longer, and we shall see the King in his beauty. A little longer, and he shall wipe away all tears from our eyes. A little longer, and we shall have a robe of purity, whiter than any fuller on earth could whiten it. It is the garment woven in the loom of heaven, not to cover over our sins, for Jesus takes away the sin of the world, but to clothe us in the righteousness of Christ. I want to behold him until I shall be changed into his likeness; for by beholding we become changed. We should talk of the crown of life, of the heaven of bliss that awaits the faithful. May God help us to press the battle to the gate. He will place the crown of life upon our heads as we proclaim, "Worthy, worthy is the Conqueror." We shall exclaim, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing."  {ST, April 23, 1894 par. 8}
     Do you want heaven? Then will you show the line of demarkation between you and the world, and hear at last the words of approbation, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord."
                                                                -

Christ has the key to our graves. He has gained victory over death!

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  
 
Amen!

From Kevin M. Barrett:

Please remember Dane Griffin and his family as Dane goes into surgery this coming Sabbath. He has a rare form of cancer. An anointing service is planned prior to the surgery.
I have no further details.

Dane is the director of media development for the Michigan Conference, president of
Adventists Affirm and is a well-known speaker throughout our church in North America.

What a shock!  Dane and Vicki Griffin were the highlights of the KY-TN campmeeting, which closed May 31.  He was the picture of health, and gave us such challenging sermons/lectures it is no wonder that the old devil wants him silenced.

Please post all updates, many of us will be eagerly wanting to know, and we will certainly be praying.

It appears or seems like satan is trying to silence what the Lord is trying to do through Dane Griffin. Also, the devil will use this so that others will look upon the health message with indifference.
Title: Re: Very Urgent Prayer Requests.... Part 2
Post by: Dora on June 11, 2008, 09:27:31 PM
True.  But, wouldn't it be wonderful if Brother Griffin was found not to have cancer even before the scheduled surgery!!!  God can take this and use it to bring others to Him, and to show His love for His people.
Title: Re: Very Urgent Prayer Requests.... Part 2
Post by: Sister Marie on June 12, 2008, 02:15:19 AM
I hope and pray that things turn out good for him. If they do the praise will go to the surgery instead of to God only. It is so hard to know what to do now days about things like this. It is hard to trust God only, and not the doctors knife. A friend of mine with advanced cancer is doing this. Went all raw and has lost weight and feels better than he has in many years. Yet, will he live? If not, is that God's will or does God expect us to do as much as we can in having surgery? A question we all need to answer for ourselves I guess. But one thing is for sure, if one goes without the surgery, and the person lives, in praising God... even the un=believer could be blessed to see it was God's healing hand.  I have wondered over this question for a long time and still don't know for sure, what I would do if it were me. May God be with this dear brother is my prayer, that His healing hand will be upon him.

This comes from Dane Griffin's daughter, Gina, from her facebook webpage:

Quote
Hey all! I wanted to get the word out about a loyal and long-time friend to many of you...and, of course, my and Anthony's Dad.

For those of you who may not know him, He works for the Michigan Conference as the Media Director.

Dane was recently (1 week ago) diagnosed with kidney, bladder and urethral cancer. It is a huge shock, he is so healthy.

We are asking for as many people as we can find to pray for him, and especially SATURDAY, June 14th. This is the day he is having his major, major surgery. They are removing his kidney, part of his bladder, and his ureter (tube connecting the two).

Joining this group will spread the word and let us know that your prayers are going up for him. If we could have hundreds of people praying for him during his surgery, what comfort and POWER that would give him! This is a very emotional time for him, scary as well as hopeful. We are all wondering why this is happening to him, please keep our family in your prayers.

I am also asking whoever feels like sending Dane a note of encouragement or thoughts, please send it to me via my facebook. I will print them all out, and what a JOY he will have reading them all before Surgery! I will give them to him to read while he is waiting to go in to the operating room.

Love to all! Thankyou so much!! Love, Gina

That's today, Sabbath, the 14th!

Such a loving child and one that values the blessings of prayer. She knows where the healing power resides!

Heavenly Father, bless this daughter's prayer for her father. He has been faithful to present the health message. Use him to your honor and glory, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

The Michigan conference has been calling for revival and reformation. It is a blessing to see they hired Dane for this position. May God richly bless this conference in their desire to see revival in God's church.

Here is an update on Dane....


Quote (relayed by Kevin Barrett)
"I just spoke with the family of Dane Griffin and they wish to share the following with their conference family:

Dane Griffin successfully came through his surgery today. The surgeons removed his left kidney, the left ureter, and a small portion of his bladder. As a precaution, three lymph nodes were also taken out. It is believed that the cancer was contained in the organs that were removed. A pathology report will be released later this week, and pending that report, the family is optimistic for a complete recovery.

Please continue to remember Dane and his family in your prayers."

We can thank our Lord, and keep praying for Dane's speedy, complete recovery.
God knows how this couple, Dane and his wife, Vicki can be such a blessing in their ministry; also that Dane will give God all the glory for his recovery.

The members from our church who were at campmeeting were eager to hear the report, also.  I immediately called them, asking also for continued prayer.

Thank all of you for the update...I was waiting to see it.

Subject: Dad Dearest friends,

Thank you for your prayers and messages! They have meant so much to me! Dad was greatly touched to get all your notes. I am sorry I didn't write sooner...I haven't had internet readily available and have been spending most of my time with Dad. He pulled through the surgery fine. Very sore, two large incisions, but he is walking around, talking and improving. He just came down with a paralytic ileus (part of his intestine is 'frozen'.) so will be staying in the hospital for a few more days. It will work itself out. It looks like they got all the cancer! Praise God. The surgery was 3 1/2 hours long, and like Justin Kim wrote, they took his kidney, ureter and part of the bladder. Thanks Justin for keeping everyone updated! Smiley We will know if the cancer is anywhere else tomorrow. Keep him in your prayers...thank you all! love, gina--------------------

Amazing that the world would allow such things to happen today. I wonder which country would want to kill a person for spreading the gospel of good news?  Sadly there is more than one!      And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Rev. 6:11.

Heavenly Father, we ask for your blessing on those who willingly put themselves at risk by sharing the truth of Christ with the world. Use this situation to  your honor and glory. Comfort the individual who has been jailed and if it will work for his salvation and your glory, free him. Like in the stoning of Stephen and the murder of Paul, reveal Christ to those involved, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

I just received this prayer request from my daughter.  It concerns the daughter of Pastor Quentin Purvis who was the pastor at Kalamazoo church a few years ago.  Please join with me in prayer for Katie and the others who are ill.
................................................. ...........................................
Please pray about this...Katie Purvis has been taken along with 5 others to the hospital in Mexico with vomiting, diarrhea, very high fevers, hallucinations, and fainting.  They have no idea at this time what is causing this but there is a serious situation going on right now that is in need of prayer.   In all, 20 of the people in this group that went have gotten sick.  They have just taken the worst cases to the hospital. 


 Dear pastors and office staff,

We are in need of your prayer and prayer chains started in your churches if possible.  I just received a phone call from Kim Purvis. She and her family were one of the families that joined many Michigan kids and adults from churches all across Michigan on a bus to go down to the heart of Mexico to be a part of a mission trip.  They left December 20th and everything has been going great, except Sabbath morning, 20 of our Michigan people had gotten sick..  She had called me for prayer and to activate prayer chains because they are taking the six sickest people to the hospital right now because they are just getting worse.  Vomiting, diarrhea, very high fevers, hallucinations, and fainting.  Her daughter Katie is one of them that have been taken to the hospital.  They have no idea at this time what is causing this but there is a serious situation going on right now that is in need of prayer.

Thank you for your continued prayers in this situation.  If I receive another call, I will keep you posted.

God bless,
Cindy Stephan

Hi Sybil,
Just an FYI for you about Liane... she went into surgery for her back and they think she had a stroke and had to revive her 4 times on the table.  She is in serious condition and is not conscious.

Sister Glass gave us an update on June 8, 2009, a little over a month ago:

I received this from Sister Liane a week ago. She is up and around some right now, but still going to surgery again in July.
===================
Quote
Well it has taken me a few days to sort all of what happened out in my mind. Presently I am recovering from the world wind experience I went through up at the Reno hospital. Nothing went well and still more to be done. We went from Plan A to Plan B and when the doctor got into the operating room and they did the angiogram he was only able to put one stent in me at that time of Plan B.

By the grace of God I am still alive as somehow my body did a natural bypass so that blood could flow from my head down to my feat and back up again. I was so blocked with plaque that my blood is not going through the abdominal aorta as it should. Somehow my body is using a vessel that normally flows blood in two direction on the side of my intestines and circles around to the other end of my aorta where the blockage ends. Do not know completely as everything I get is second hand information and all of it is given to my friend Heidi who was with me and I got a synopsis of the info.

The bottom line is that I know I am alive and that what is going on is keeping me alive for now. We have made a new schedule for the next Plan C operation on July 9th and we see the doctor on July 8th for the update of what is going to happen with Plan C operation. When I woke up after the surgery with such expectations and the stupid nurse said it did not go well I was so upset and I was alone at the time as Heidi had gone out to eat and was not there.

For now the one new stent seems to be helping my right leg better than it was before. I would always be in a lot of pain when I walked and now it seems more even as far as the pain in the hips and buttocks when I walk.

The last two days have been a lot of up and down emotions and I am sure as it gets closer to the next surgery I am going to have a lot of emotional anxiety knowing that this is a major surgery and all.

At the same time for three weeks now I have lost whatever hearing I had in my left ear. I was severe to profound in the left ear and now am profoundly in both ears. I went to see a ENT the next day after the surgery, but he could not find anything wrong. He took out the wax in both ears, but could not find any infection, swelling or anything wrong with the left ear. I suggests I get a MRI of my head to see if anything is going on inside where he cannot see with the naked eye. He also suggests that I register for the Cochlear Implant program and go that route as I am an excellent candidate for it since I already had hearing before and would be saved a lot of the long term recovery and training to understand words. I could forgot the implant and go in the direction of using both lip reading, which I have always used, and sign language, but that would put me into a whole other world of the deaf, whereas I have always been in the hearing world for the most part using what residual hearing with my hearing aid in the left ear along with lip reading.

As for how I got here it was my own fault with my very bad eating habits and lack of exercise for many years. I just cannot realize how bad it was until now the end results I find myself in presently. I am blessed to have people who care about me and are helping me get through this with support. When we were in the waiting room to get pre-op there was this lady that was alone waiting as well. Heidi my friend and caregiver went over to her and started a conversation with her until the nurse called the lady to come with her. Heidi told me that she was 79 years old and had no family and lived alone and was having major neck surgery. It broke our hearts and I will never forget her smile when we wished her well and said goodbye as she left the room. I think Heidi going over to her was everything to her. I felt so guilty with all that God has given me in support and friends for if not I would have been just as alone as that lady.

What we have presently planned is putting a Dacron bypass around my abdominal aorta that will bypass the blocked area of my plaque that closed up since I last saw what it looked like two years ago. The doctor will also clean out my kidney arteries of plaque so they will be open and keep my so far good kidneys functioning.
After the surgery I will be in the hospital or seven days and then off to rehab depending on how well I recover.

Whether the doctor is mulling through his brain a Plan D I do not know. He did that in the meantime when we talked about Plan A when I saw him and then tells us there is a Plan B of which I was not expecting. He said he had been thinking a lot about my medical problems and how it could be done. He wants to wait on the surgery until July so that he could put his vacation behind him and be able to focus on me for the pre and post op care I will need. He is a sweet guy and I picked on him because of the changes. I hope he understands my dry sense of humor.

In closing I know that God is in charge and taking care of all this and I can only follow His will and allow what comes according to His will. I am by no means brave as my friend Heidi could testify, but I do trust God and know that whatever is best for me is being done.

I'm sorry, the post is confusing. The update, that is from the past correct? And she has had another, more recent surgery that she is not recovering well from?

Dear Heavenly Father, please, we leave our dear Sister Liane in your hands. You are the only one we can trust her with. You know what is best for her and what she needs. We know that you love her even more than we do, and we know that you want her with you eternally. Whatever it takes so that this can happen, we know you will do. Thank you Lord for loving Liane and us so much that you never give up on us, no matter what we do, and thank you for being our Rock and Redeemer.

We praise your Holy Name, and we rest in you...

Amen

Hi, dear sister ... Sister Glass posted Liane's update on June 8, 2009 - a little over a month ago. The update is straight from Liane and yes, this is her second surgery.

We got word today that Liane's surgery (the one she talked about having in July) happened last Tuesday. That is when she apparently had a stroke and coded 4 times. She is currently in ICU and still not conscious.

After her last surgery we exchanged e-mails and I found out she lived within hours of us. Too far away for us to drive to her home, but the drive to the hospital is closer so we planned to meet each other this week while she recovered. I still plan to stop past on Tuesday, and hope and pray we will find her in much better condition. From her e-mails, I would describe her as a sweet woman and is prepared for whatever the outcome might be. My prayers are still with her.

I went to see Liane today. She is in the Cardiac Care Unit. There has been no change in her condition. I had no choice but to have our 8 yo son in tow - no children allowed in CCU. But, the staff was kind enough to let him come into the area and wait at her door while I spent a few minutes with Liane. A friend was there with her.

The nurse and friend both said that she couldn't hear anything. I figured who knows for sure? So I carressed her arm, what little was showing that didn't have a tube, and spoke softly to her, telling her of God's love and all the people that are praying for her. It would be nice to say that she responded, but the movements that she made with her arms, foot and eye lids when I touched her were reported as nothing unusual.

It was hard not to cry - and I barely know her. I got teary-eyed & the friend started to get teary-eyed so I thought it best to leave since I didn't know how son was taking all this and I didn't want to make it worse for anyone.

Thank you for updating us Vicki. The reason Liane wouldn't be able to hear you wouldn't have been the coma, as they often do hear from in the coma, but rather her profound hearing loss in both ears now. However, I am certain she knew you were there, and it was a blessing for you to touch her and let her know that she is not alone. I hope there is more of that, as we don't know her status inside the coma. I wish there was more of a way to communicate with her. Maybe someone could sign into her hand or something?

She continues to be in my prayers.

God bless

An update on Liane as of yesterday:

Quote
I am sorry about what has happened.  MRI seemed to show that Liane has a brain tumor.  They are doing an MRI with contrast today to see it a little more clearly.  Things do not look good.  Liane did wake up on Thursday PM [9th, the same day as surgery], but after that her mentation continued to drop.  Saturday morning her eyes were rolled up in her head and her R arm was posturing.  I left Sunday and Carolyn came to sit with her.  Her kidneys have not come back very well, her stomach is rejecting all food, she's on a ventilator, and the only response we get is an opening of the eyes to touch or yelling in her ear.  She does not see anything or follow any commands.  We made her a No Code today, so at least we would not prolong her misery.  Tomorrow I will talk to the Neurologist again and see what the MRI showed.    Do not be too grieved.  Liane was right with her maker.  I told her she better be ready to die in case it happened and she said she already took care to that.  She was getting everything ready in case of her death.  Gave me all the last minute instructions.  God bless you all as you grieve.  I do not expect her to last long.  Heidi

I am so grateful Liane has Heidi. This latest report is, indeed, exceedingly sad news. While contemplating our dear sister Liane, I could not help but remember something she said early last month:

All of this is so overwhelming. Now I wish I was still in California so I could go and see her. I never did make the long trip while I was there and she was well and now I wish I had. I feel so bad about all of this. But God knows what is best and we have put her in His hands. May He continue to be with her through this.
Dear Heavenly Father, You know the need hear and what will be the best outcome for Liane. We again put Liane in Your hands knowing that there is no better place for her. We pray that we will have the privilege to met her in heaven. Thank You for this blessed hope we all have. We pray it in Jesus name, Amen

I received this today.

Karyn, We took Liane off life support yesterday.  She has been transfered to the third floor.  She is in a coma, and only responds by opening her eyes to a cold touch, or yell in her ear.  They removed her ventilator, and all her IV's.  She will be kept comfortable.  If she appears to be in pain they are giving her morphine.  They do not expect her to live two days.  This AM she was still alive.  Thanks for your prayers for her.  God bless you all for your concern.  Heidi

Today's News on Liane   :(

Dear Friends,
I got a call from Heidi tonight. Our friend and sister Liane Holland passed away in Reno, Nevada at 7pm. She went in her sleep, there was no struggle, she's sleeping in the hands of Jesus till he calls us on that day when he comes to and take us away from this dark earth. Liane was a Seventh Day Adventist, she studdied and helped others understand the teachings of Christ. She wad been severely hard of hearing, taught a sign language class at the Bishop SDA Church. She used a hearing dog trained to help her know if someone was calling her, of the phone rang, firealarms and sirens when she drove.  She loved animals,  Children , Heidi's daughters.
26. Death and Resurrection:
The wages of sin is death. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day death is an unconscious state for all people. When Christ, who is our life, appears, the resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified and caught up to meet their Lord. The second resurrection, the resurrection of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand years later. (Rom. 6:23; 1 Tim. 6:15, 16; Eccl. 9:5, 6; Ps. 146:3, 4; John 11:11-14; Col. 3:4; 1 Cor. 15:51-54; 1 Thess. 4:13-17; John 5:28, http://www.adventist.org/beliefs/fundamental/index.html29; Rev. 20:1-10.)
Thank You for praying for Liane in her time of need. God's will was done, He let her go peacefully, I pray you all are OK, don't mourn, just look forward to Christ's return.

It is a sad reminder that life is very fragile, even for Christians. On the other hand, death is only a short term sleep. Let us not hope that we could rest in such manner. As the Apostle Paul believed it is better to stay here and do the work that so badly needs to be done to help others know Jesus. So, let us cherish the health we have and study the great light we have been given that our lives may be prolonged to do this important work.

Yes, it is peaceful to be asleep, but we have been praying very long now that God would send workers into His vineyard, for the harvest is white. We are praying that when one is removed that God will add two. Jesus is coming very soon. We have much to do. Through the power of God's grace, let us redeem the time that has been wasted.

Please pray for Niki. She just turned 28 on Sept 10. She is almost 6 months pregnant with her first child, a boy named Reid. Her husbands name is Tim. She is a cousin of mine living in TN. On September 7, Niki was admitted to ICU with pneumonia. On September 11, she had to be intubated and put on a ventilator. Though the tests came back negative, it is still believed that the pneumonia has been caused by the H1N1 virus (swine flu). She has also now been diagnosed with ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome). At this point they say her chance of survival is not good.

Heavenly Father, we ask that you intervene in this situation with our Sister Niki. We do not know what is best, but you do and you have told us that we ought to pray for help in this world. We pray for our sister that she would be in heaven. We do not know what is best to achieve this for her and her family, but we pray for her salvation and the salvation of her family. If there is something that she are her husband need to do that would be for their good and your honor and glory, I pray that you reveal this that nothing would be in the way of you healing our dear sister. Even then, you work all things for good to those who love you, so we leave this matter in your hands. If it be to your honor and glory and it it be for the salvation of this family and others, we pray that you heal Sister Niki. We also pray for Baby Reid. We pray for his salvation and if he will bring honor and glory to you and be a blessing to others, we pray for his life also. We pray for the physicians and the family, that through this current crisis that your name will be glorified. We ask that you use Brother Brian to help in this if it be possible. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Update on Prayer request for Niki:

They believe she has turned the corner and will recover. They expect recovery to take quite awhile - I'm assuming the ARDS has done some damage but I'm not really sure. It is very good news that there will even be a recovery considering the initial prognosis.

The hard part right now is that she has moments where she wakes up and panics because of the tube they put down her throat, but that should be coming out pretty soon. Thank you all for your prayers!

Update on prayer request for Niki:

She's  been up and down, back and forth - but still in critical condition. They did an ultrasound last night to see how big the baby is because were thinking they would have to do a c-section to get the baby out before they could treat her more aggressively - but that would also add the additional complication of the procedure and recovery to her treatment and they were not sure what to do.

God intervened! Last evening she had been agitated off and on (still sedated and on the ventilator) and they went to turn her to see if that could help and found fluid on the bed and the baby's head already out. ICU and L & D are two different fields, but thank God he planned ahead. The family member that was "on duty" with Niki happens to be a nurse with L & D experience and she was able to take over, finish the delivery and get the baby into an incubator (the baby - Reid - was born at 2lb 8oz and seems to be doing well).

Niki is still in ICU, but now they do not have a c-section recovery to weigh into the equation. Thank you all for praying that God's will be done here.

Update:
Thank you all for your prayers!
My son's labs were initially .33 for his thyroid, then on retest three days later they were .15 which indicated it was progressing aggressively. Everyone started praying for him over the weekend and on Monday and we went to the doctor that day and had more labs done. We do not have a complete answer as of yet, as we are waiting to see if there is an autoimmune marker in his bloodwork. However...and this is a BIG however, as of the most current bloodwork, his thyroid levels and all other blood work are completely NORMAL!!! I'm being cautiously optimistic because we don't have all the information just yet, but, the doctor said that on Monday my son was PROFOUNDLY hyperthyroid, and as of yesterday, he was unable to say that with any surety any longer.
There is the possibility that we caught him at the tail end of the process and now he is on the upswing, but for it to happen in such a brief period of time.....I think we all know what happened, don't we?

:D :D :D

I'll update you all with the autoimmune labs and whether or not they are normal as well, or if they have an autoimmune marker.

All test results are negative and normal! We just need to keep an eye on him now to determine if he's still symptomatic, or if his symptoms have been completely resolved.

Praise the Lord! In three days to go from profoundly hyperthyroid to complete normalcy....pray that this remains the case.

Thank you all for your prayers!

Dear Father in Heaven, We do come to You in humbleness and repentance for anything we may have done wrong.....we pray for forgiveness. Now we thank You dear Lord for this up-swing in news. We Praise Your Holy Name and thank you with all our heart. Thank you dear Father for loving and caring for us. This is something that is a fact regardless of how prayers are answered. You know the beginning to the end and You know what is best for Your own reasons. Thank you for being there for us. :) Marie

My son who I brought to you in prayer is ill again. Something different. Seems to be some sort of flu, hopefully not H1N1. He attended a Christian Youth Conference This past weekend and was ill when he returned.
I'm thinking that God has a mighty work for this young leader, and the Enemy doesn't want him to accomplish it. Please continue to lift him, and our entire family, up to the Lord in prayer.

Thank you so much!
Sincerely....

Esther, we will be praying for him.

Update on Niki & Reid:

I have hesitated putting updates on because it has been up and down from day to day, but now they've had a few solid days of marked recovery. The baby is doing great! In addition, Niki has been able to come off the ventilator during the day and has even started to regain some of her fine motor skills. They ended up doing a Tracheotomy on her because she needed to get the tube out of her throat, so she still cannot speak very well, but that is progressing too. She was under sedation for almost a month and that takes a terrible physical toll, but she is making great strides now. They are hopeful for a full recovery. Up to 80% of people who have had ARDS and been under sedation that long end up with some permanent brain damage - equivalent to mild dementia - but they are pretty confident she is on her way to a full recovery.

I know the family is very grateful for God's hand in this whole experience and thankful to everyone who has been praying. Thanks to everyone for keeping them in prayer - may God's will be done!

Such hope for this loved one, Brian. Thank you for letting us know how they are doing. Extended use of a ventilator can cause some short-term memory loss so they may anticipate that; however, aren't we grateful for a machine that can help us when we cannot help ourselves? What gratitude!

I have just received word that my brother-in-law is in critical condition with necrotizing fasciitis. It is further complicated because he is also a diabetic. He's on a vent and now has a central line. He's in one of the best hospitals in the country for treating NF, but the mortality rate is still high. Please pray for him and my sister plus their son and daughter that God's will be done and they be given the grace to accept it.

Heavenly Father, so many trials. Thank you for telling us ahead of time what was coming. Our Sister Linda has asked for prayer for her brother-in-law. You know all about the situation. We ask that you send angels and the Holy Spirit to minister to him and and his wife and family. Use this situation in the very best way for this family. Comfort them as only you can. If it be for this family's salvation and you glory, we ask you to heal him of this disease. Whatever the case, give grace to the family that they may be your witnesses in this time of great trial, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

The paraylsis is in his left cheek and jaw due to the damage to nerves. He's still on the vent and heavily sedated. White count is dropping. My nephew is with him now.

Please pray for my step-father Ken Buckholtz. He has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer. It seems to be localized to the gland and they will be removing the gland surgically January 4th. Please pray that they will be able to remove all traces of the disease and that they will take this opportunity to get their health and diet on track. Praise the Lord they are already seeing the benefit of removing animal proteins from their diet, in helping to prevent the return of the disease once it is conquered. They are long-time Seventh-day Adventists, my mom lifetime, and this is a wake up call for them. And all of us.

Thank you all for your prayers and intercession!

Heavenly Father, please comfort our Brother Ken and his family as he goes through the treatment for his cancer. Bless him as he makes changes in his life to conform to the laws we live by. If there be anything in his life that will help you to bless him, we pray that you will reveal this in a manner that will be a blessing. If it will be for his salvation and that of his family and friends, and for your honor and glory, we ask that you heal him from this scourge of cancer. And, I pray that this would be a testimony to your ways. We are thankful that he has made the association between the cancer in dairy and human cancer. May this prove to be a blessing in his life and those with whom he has influence. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen!

Greetings everyone!
Mom and Dad spent the day at the doctor's today, one of the many involved in his care. Unfortunately he confirmed Dad's diagnosis, he has metastatic cancer to his spine that may have spread elsewhere. It will take a miracle from God to save his life.

Jim, this is horrible news. So sad to hear this. My prayers are with him and his family. Such a trial!

I heard recordings of Elder Holmes from Michigan. On the opening of each is the incredible music of "Cumbaya" played on flute and Dane's voice saying, "Come by here, Lord, Stay here, Lord." The inflections in his voice with the music in the background is striking, very moving.

The Lord's will be done. So sad.

O, Jim, I am so sorry to hear this!  We ate lunch at the table with the Griffins at camp meeting, and I asked when he had to go for his next checkup, he said "Right after Camp Meeting."  But, he said he believed it would be a good report.

I know he will have many prayers ascending for him.  Satan hates the work he is doing, and wants to stop it.  What an encouragement to all if God heals him.

We ask that you do so in a manner that will glorify Jesus and work to the salvation of souls. We know that all things work together for good to those who love you. Our sister loves you and we pray that those involved in this situation do also. If not, we pray that this trial, whatever it may be, will work for their salvation.

Dear Father in Heaven, You know the problems that Linda is having right now. We pray that you will be with her and encourage and strengthen her and her family. Guide them into good choices and let them know Your Love is with them always.
Dear Father we pray for Tim also. It is hard when things so not go the way we wish them to. It can really work on the feelings. We are told not to let feelings lead us for it is a open door for satan to have his way. So we pray that Tim will be able to see with Your help Lord the way you wish for him to go in this problem. If letting it go is what he needs Father, please make this possible for him.
We ask both of these prayers in Jesus Holy Name and for His sake that He may be Praised.

I'd like to lift my niece up in prayer. She is pregnant with a child by a man other than her husband and she is very ill. I would like to pray that not only she will be healed according to the Lord's will, but that also her heart and soul will be healed as well. She comes from a broken family, and is the product of many addictions and domestic violence. We've tried to witness to them over the years, but through circumstances beyond our control have lost all contact with the family until recently.
She is currently hospitalized for complications of the pregnancy including blood clots to the lungs and raised heart rate, etc. She has been in the hospital for approximately a week now and there is grave concern that there will be serious danger when the time comes for her to deliver her daughter.
Thank you so much for your prayers and I look forward to welcoming her and her family into the Kingdom along with all of you.

God bless you all!

This must be hard for you to look on and see.
But I also feel that the Lord allowed her to be in a place where
her only hope is the Lord and that hopefully she will see
this. He has plans my friend.
Dear Father in heaven, we bring before you just now, this dear
sister and her grave concerns for a family member that she dearly
cares about. You know the sorrow and the cares that she has lived
with all her life. We are not using this for an excuse for her mistakes
but rather as a knowledge that You are the all knowing God, the only
one who knows the affrairs of mankind before they are even born. In
Your hands dear Lord we lay this young woman with child. You know the
situation and the possibilities that You are laying open for her. Bring her to
You just now dear Father. Bring her close that she may yearn to know You
better. I pray for her healing Lord, according to your will. This is prayed in Jesus
Holy Name and for His sake only. We will give You all the Praise and all the Glory,
Amen

I would love to have more spiritual conversations with her but if she has cancer the opportunity might be gone since the only time I can see her is the place we both volunteer at once a week. Jesus knows what is best, and that is what I pray for. Thank you for your prayers.

If you have a CHIP program close to you this would be a wonderful way to help
her. This has helped so many with these awful illnesses. And it helps everyone

experienced changed lives.... no longer dying but healthy and going on with

Thank you, Marie. I wish there was one in the community. There isn't even an SDA church. Unemployment has left most of us pretty much stranded concerning distance travel. I did share health info with her & hope she will at the very least get Dr John McDougall's book from the library - I can't remember the name of it now, but he has a good one on women & cancer that I know she'd be able to get a hold of & learn much from.

I was sitting in a clinic when the power surged and went out. Backup generators quickly came on. Driving home I saw ambulances and firemen at the home of one of my distant neighbors, a backhoe operator I had never met but frequently saw while traveling on that little road.  A friend of his, the plumber I am using on the construction site, called late last night saying he didn't get to our work because his friend was fatally electrocuted while digging a trench.

I'll tell you, Satan is going about as a roaring lion, snatching this one and that one from our midst. Please keep this man's family in prayer. It is a painful loss for our community.

You are so right, Sybil!  We had just returned from the burial Monday evening and had to stop at Walmart.  My husband and son went in while I stayed in the van with the girls.  We saw two ambulances drive up with flashing lights and wondered what was going on with two of them coming.  I called Ben to find out and he told me that there was a young man in his early 20's and they were saying something about his heart.  Very bizarre after what we'd just been through.  I pray that he is okay.

The river is rising and is already up in the park. If it keeps rising much higher we will need to go. It will be the second time we've had to flee flooding and potentially loose nearly we own. Job said, The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed by the name of the Lord. Please keep us in prayer. This mobile home park has many elderly people in it.

Sorry to all about not getting back to you regarding my niece. I was locked out of the forum for quite some time and when I got back, didn't remember to catch this up.

My niece recovered well, and went on the have her child who is also healthy. I do not know anything about her spiritual condition. I'm happy she's healthy though.

Would you all please lift up my son Jacob in prayer? He is going off to college at Walla Walla University which is something that needs prayer all on its own, but, most especially that God will soften his heart towards me and help him to see that his lack of respect is going to only hurt him in the long run. Also, that God will remove the blinders he has over his eyes regarding his birth father. His father has been largely absent most of his life and uninvolved, and now that he is becoming involved, Jacob is listening to his lies about me and is listening to the father of lies and showing a total lack of respect and almost a hatred towards me. He treats me like a servant when he needs me, and then has absolutely no respect for my opinion or my needs.

Please pray that God will touch his heart and remove the chains that bind his heart and the darkness that is shrouding him.

Thank you.

Please pray for Sue; she is a fellow Christian of another denomination. She announced today that she may have breast cancer - she's going in for further tests tomorrow. I would love to have more spiritual conversations with her but if she has cancer the opportunity might be gone since the only time I can see her is the place we both volunteer at once a week. Jesus knows what is best, and that is what I pray for. Thank you for your prayers.

Vicki, how is Sue doing?

The tests came back negative, but the Dr. wants to check it again in 6 months. She is in poor health because of lifestyle, but isn't of a mindset to change. We don't get to talk much as she found employment. She can be a cheerful person to be around, but spiritual matters don't go deep. So sad.

Two women and their families need our prayers. I learned of their terrible ordeals today in Sabbath School.

Sandra: This marvelous woman came into the church as a result of the next woman needing prayer, Patsy. The Martinez family made it their special mission to bring in all of their children, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews into God's fold. Almost 90% of them are now Seventh-day Adventist Christians. Praise the Lord for evangelism within families. Sandra and Patsy are cousins. Late this last year Sandra's son was killed in a car accident. It was her only son. That death took a tremendous toll on their immediate family. The dad, not yet in the church, lost his job because of layoffs and Sandra has had to work extra hours to make up for the loss of income. Their house is on the verge of foreclosure. Sandra's husband was overwhelmed at their circumstance and took his own life last night. He was found shot in the head beside some remote highway. Sandra is a very strong woman, always in church with her children and very young grandchildren. She is doing her part. Please pray for her endurance under this tremendous tragedy.

Patsy: Patsy is my closest friend at church, well, it's a tough race between she and Rusty. I just love Patsy. For about 2 years she has experienced debilitating vertigo. It has crippled her, confining her to her bed. I think I have spoken of this elsewhere. She had all of her tests ready to travel to Mayo in Phoenix when she received two possible diagnosis: MS or Lupus. She will know tomorrow. I am not medically savvy enough to begin to relate the two, but her doctors have. Either condition is very difficult. We need prayer for Patsy. We do not know the Lord's will for her, but He does. Pray that it is carried out and she is given the grace to accept it.

God allows things we cannot comprehend. Everyone I know is enduring some type of tragedy. That we may end up as pure gold on the other end of this trying fire is my prayer.

Post by: Sister Marie on July 11, 2010, 09:29:06 PM
I'm not sure where the fluid build up is. His son, who he lives with and daughter in law, told me he gets this twice a year or so and it is hard to get rid of. But I have known him two years and not known him to be sick.... unless I just did not know. His family has him at home and they are treating it with Robatusson (don't know how that is spelled) and high doses of Vit. C he told me before it got so bad. I don't know if he just won't go to the dr./hosp. or if they have been able to treat it like this before. Since I can not hear worth a hoot, I can't catch everything that they said. But he told me one time that he don't get head colds, but drainage in the chest/ I think he meant fluid. Could it just mean a really bad chest cold? He was very tired for two days. Thr. and Fri. Emailed me on Friday night. Insisted on going to Church even tho he was really ill. And I have not heard from him sinse by email. His family works tomorrow and I offered to stay with him. But they must feel he will be alright. I wish I understood the ins and outs of it, but I don't. I only sit here concerned and praying. I know he had a stroke 3 years ago. But recoved from it till today one could not tell. There is too much I do not know.

Post by: Sister Marie on July 14, 2010, 07:29:42 PM
The fluid has now gone into his lungs. He has phnemonia now. Please
continue to pray for him. His son has gotten him to go to the Doctor
tomorrow and hopefully can get him to go to the hospital for much needed
help. He don't think he is going to make it and that kind of thinking I wish
I could change. But it is so hard for him to eat anything and he needs to eat
or be nourished.

Thank you for your prayers.

We will pray for him, Sister Glass. Has he lived a full life in Jesus? Maybe Jesus wishes him to now rest and sleep. You know many will be laid to rest for this short time until He calls them forth. He does it in mercy as well as to save some. This brother has been a pastor and if he is anything like you have described, then he knows the love of Jesus. God's will be done. You are a very kind friend. I love you, Sister Glass.

I do indeed agree and if this is God's Will I will need to rest in that. But we were
making plans to be married and this is harder for me than I think I can take some
times. I have so many things wrong with me right now, and most of it I feel the
lack of stress would help heal. Nothing else seems to be working. I've tried so hard
to lay it at the Lord's feet, but the the stress still don't go away.

I need your prayers too. I've lost most of my hearing with a infection in both ears,
 that has not gone away, antibiotics are not helping. The loud ringing and fullness is with me all the time. Also acid reflux just started and
last night for a bit I was even having trouble with my left eye. All this after loosing my
voice with a cold that is just starting to get better after a week and a half of it. if I don't do much talking my voice seems better. I can't seem
to sleep well at all either. I need to relax and I don't know how to.

Sr. Marie, you seem to be under tremendous stress, and it is probably helping to make you ill. I know about stress, and it can make one literally sick. Prayer is the only help and hope...prayer from others and from yourself, and knowing that Jesus cares, and so do others.  There is a quote which has helped me much, please allow me to share it.

Quote
"I know that the Lord loves you. If you cannot rely upon your own faith, rely upon the faith of others. God accepts our faith in your behalf. 2T,319

Often, when our faith is weak, a brother's/sister's is strong. We can ask for prayer as you have, and knowing that others are praying and believing can strengthen us.

We are praying for you, and for God to work His will in yours and your friend's life.

Sr Marie,

Sounds like an infection drained into the lungs and setup pneumonia.

If he has pneumonia - that means infection, and fluid in the lungs.  He needs to stay in a hospital for a few days, get on antibiotics, aerosolized meds to thin down the junk in his lungs, deep breathing excercises - which respiritory will do with him - called I S  -  inspitory spirometry - every few hrs they will come and have him put a device in his mouth and inhale slowly, deeply - and it will measure how much air can expand his lungs, within normal limits more is better.  They might do CPPT or CPT for short.   CPT = chest physiotherapy.   CPPT = Chest Postural drainage and Physio Therapy.  

CPT means that with a machine that has a round vibrating handheld pad to rub over his ribs, or cupped hands, or plastic things like upside down very soft bowls to trap air as they drum on his ribs it vibrates the lungs gently and loosend the junk so he can cough it out.  CPPT means they tilt him so the lungs can drain then do the CPT.  


I will explain how to do that in another post when needed.

In the hospital many skilled knowledgable kind people will watch and care for him.  Possibly aeroslized breathing meds to open his breathing passages,  or if unable to breath deeply - IPPB treatments - a handheld machine  turns the meds into a mist and gives a technican set deep breath at a frequency the tech sets, and it helps the meds go deeper where they need to go.

If he has CHF and has a history of stroke, he needs to be refered by his physican to be examined by a sleep physican to see if he needs a sleep study, untreated sleep apnea is the single largest cause of CHF.  There are CPAP and NON CPAP treatments for sleep apnea and sleep related breathing disorders.     Once he is able to get out of the hospital, see to it he has a good physical as often as insurance will cover it,  no more homegrown treatments with cough medicine and vitamins, when they are clearly not effective for his needs.

Talk to his MD's get them to plain language educate you, once you both are married you need to put your foot down and require routine medical care and checkups.   Protect the poor man from his self neglect and hesitancy to take care of himself.

Thank you for the song Sybil.
Thank you brother Ed for the information. I have no say in what is done with him right now. His son said he would be back to me today, but so far he has not. It is almost 9pm. But I still hope to hear from  him in not too long. I have been online and found out what hosp. he is in and the room number. So at least I know that they did get him in the hosp. and that he is getting good care. Please keep praying for him. I have a feeling he has a long ways to go. But God can do anything and I pray that this is what happens, that he does get well. Thank you so much. Sr. Marie

Good Evening Sister Sybil,

He was sent home as soon as he improved some. I believe that is a mistake but you know the dr.'s and the hosp. are all run by the insurance companies now days.
His lungs were not good when he left, I could tell by the look on the dr.'s face when he checked it.

His family is so mad at me for going to be with him in the hosp. that now that he is home with them again I don't feel I should call. Would not do any good anyway, they have the answering machine on, ever since he got sick. That is why I had to find out where he was on my own.

Our Pastor left a message last night that was not answered either. I don't know if they had to take him back in to the hospital or not.

So I am playing the waiting game hoping that he will get well enough to email me in not too long.  If not, I don't know what I can do but pray and pray and hope and pray. I thank you all for your prayers and ask you to continue.
Sister Marie

It's a difficult situation, it seems. We will make an added note to soften the hearts of his family. Oh, Sister Glass, the hearts of many are as cold as stone. What would be a comfort to him is being kept from him. I am so sorry to learn this.
Title: Re: Very Urgent Prayer Requests.... Part 2
Post by: Sister Marie on July 22, 2010, 07:53:38 PM
He told me in the hospital when he cut me down to only one hour, that this is not about comfort but healing.
In his over powering nature he does not have the experience I do in these places. He thinks he knows best when
he is not right at all. I too have been praying their hearts would be softened. Life can be a pain sometimes but God
can take care of anything and anyone. The Power is in HIS hands.

I feel so out of it not being able to hear too. It is a real trial.

Please pray for the Reed family. They have been doing Bible studies and started coming to church.

known You before. May your love fill their hearts so much that it will take them through this hard time.

I also pray that you will especially bless too, Bible Studies being given by our Bible Worker to a Pastor of
another Church and his wife. They are so impressed with this learning that they have invited another family
in their church to join them, and plan to invite even more. Your love is working on their hearts as well,
preparing them to meet You when you come.

May both of these families be ready for you dear Lord and all those You can help them bring with them.

Some on this forum may be familiar with Dane Griffin. He is assistant
to the president for the MI Conference, producer for Lifestyle
Matters, immediate past president for Adventists Affirm, speaker,
author etc.

He has been battling a rare form of cancer for sometime. At the MI
Camp meeting, we learned that there appeared to be some dramatic
improvement in his condition (as I've posted previously). As of yesterday,
I've learned at a meeting that the prognosis is not so optimistic now.
The doctors have indicated that Dane may only have 'weeks' left.  

Please pray that the Lord's will be done at this time
and that the family will be comforted.

So sorry to hear this. What a lot both Brother Dane and his family have been through since June 2008, when the cancer was first discovered. (I believe that is right, I remember it was right after campmeeting.) When we saw him the last of May, 2009, he thought he would get a good report when he went for his checkup after campmeeting. Of course, that never happened. My heart goes out to Vicki, his daughter, and all his family, and I pray that a miracle may still be worked for Dane, and that he may have relief in his suffering.

Dear Friends,
Thanks for your continued prayers this summer! I hope you have had a blessed one.
I just wanted to give you a short update. There have been rumors circulating that dad has been "healed" and is back to normal. Although his tumors had shrunk as of May, he is most certainly not through the woods.
I don't wish to share the details right now, but I do want to let you know that he is still fighting very hard, is very tired, and needs prayers, and is most certainly not out of the woods.
The hard part about this long struggle is that life moves on around you, as you wait behind trying to recover from and survive this awful cancer. My parents are in great need of encouragment and support right now. A phone call from those of you who are close to them and have talked with them in the past, and those of you who have visited them during this illness and no longer take the time to do so, please, give them an email or a phone call to let them know they are not forgotten.
Those of you who live close by, I am asking you to remember them in your prayers and especially take the time to schedule a visit with them. Let them know they are missed on Sabbath at church. Bring communion to their house if they can't make it to Communion. Ask if there's anything you can do to help.
Please don't just drop by--Dad doesn't have the energy for that--but a phone call and scheduled visit or encouraging card will mean the world to them both. They are lonely.
I am 900 miles away, and my brother is doing all he can, but I just wanted to share this need with you. Wouldn't it be a blessing if they got hundreds of cards in the mail? If any of you would like their address so you can send them a card, an encouraging word, please message me and if I know who you are I can send you their address.
God bless you all.

Thanks, Kelsy!  We can hear the pain as Gina shares their experience.  Cancer is a scourge. We are so blessed to have the light we have about the animal connection.  Much of it can be prevented. I know that Dane and Vicky have been strict vegetarians for at least 25 years when I first met them. But, like myself they came out of the world. We who have eaten animal products have been infected. I don't know to what extent this plays a part in our future, but we are surely blessed to understand that cancer does not just happen.

Jesus is the great physician and He can heal Dane or anyone in a moment. He holds the key over death. But, to us, death is only sleep. If we by God's grace overcome our selfishness, then we shall awake from the grave and be taken home with our Saviour. This does not remove the trials, but it gives us hope that it is all worth it. Let us continue to pray for God to comfort this family as they move through this great trial. They are witnesses to a world soon to perish. The things that are unseen are eternal and the things we see will soon pass away. Soon there shall be no more tears, no more sickness, no more death. It will soon be all over!  Let us look up, for our redemption draweth nigh!!

Dear Friends, I know that several of you are wondering what is going on with Dad. I want to give you a brief upadate. Our last scans showed that the cancer has not reponded to all that we have done over the last months. It has taken over many parts of his body and he h...as gone home on Hospice care from the hospital, last Wednesday to be exact. It is too painful for our family to share all the details, but we ask that you keep us in your prayers during this difficult and tragic time for us as we watch the Man we love so much appear to be losing the battle against this horrible disease. His spirits are good and we are able to keep his pain under control. We believe that God can heal him and work a miracle; but right now we are focusing on Dad, our family, and the wonderful life we have lived with Dad, husband, brother and son, and enjoying every single day that we get to spend with this wonderful, wonderful person we call Dane.

Death is always sad, God never meant it to be.  But, as we contemplate the unseen world, we are reminded that death will soon be swallowed up and there shall be no more sickness, no more tears, no more death. Jesus is coming very soon and all who have died in Christ Jesus will be awaken from their sleep. All who die are spared any more pain and suffering in this world. All of heaven rejoiced when their Leader died on the cross. We too, may rejoice when our loved ones are laid to rest and have finished their race. It is sad for us and the loss is great, but shall not we not also rejoice that those laid to rest in Christ are safe, eternally safe.

It is ours to comfort the sorrowing ones. And their greatest comfort is found in the hope that their loved ones are only sleeping and past  the point of being able to lose their salvation. They are forever more safe!

Amen! My prayers are with the family, and that our Brother Dane can have sweet peace and comfort. From what I know him, I believe he has that and the Blessed Hope of sleep in Jesus and that the next voice he hears will be Jesus calling him...and that may be sooner than we imagine!

Daughter is currently in a snowbank 20' off the expressway in my car. A wrecker is on its way to pull her out - but that is the beginning of more tense driving. We got pounded with 10" of snow and icy roads. The school did not call a snow day and now we have stranded children and parents and worried grandparents.

Daughter has to drive another 15 or so miles to retrieve grandson and then turn around and creep back home on treacherous highways. We need your prayers. Our situation is very tenuous.

Heavenly Father, You see this situation unfolding, seeing what I cannot. It is by faith that we live. My family is in jeopardy. Please help them and calm them, bringing them safely home. We are ever trusting in Your care. Thanking You in advance, I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Oh, thank you so much! She is out of the ditch and a very evil man charged her $100 to attach a chain and pull her 20 feet but we are thankful anyway. God will deal with him. She is still trying to get to grandson. Because we live in a serious mountain pass area and black ice is already on the roads, I told her not to attempt to return home but to stay with friends in town.

Again, thank you for your prayers and Thank you, heavenly Father!

Thank you - they are safe but not yet home. Overnight the snow increased to 18" and that, coupled with  freezing temperatures, the Interstate roads around this area are closed or deemed impassable, "drive at your own risk."

We are thankful for a God who knows and sees all and who has promised that "all things work together for good" to those who love Him.  We will continue to pray for your little family, that they get home safely.  Looking at the weather map, it seems that we are gong to get a lot more precipitation shortly. Winter is here. It seems that some areas are having record cold. With increasing fuel prices that is going to create a serious hardship for many.  Let us pray for God to hold back the winds a little while longer as we do that which has been entrusted to us.

Heavenly Father, we want to thank you for our dear brother and ask that you be with him in a very special way. He loves you and wants to see your church ready for the soon coming of Jesus. He is a blessing to us and the many he has ministered to through the years. You know his heart and what is best for him and your church. We pray that if it be for your glory and will help to answer his prayers for family and friends, that you heal him. Please comfort his wife and family as he goes through this trial.

 Herb Douglass sent this out last evening:

Rick Howard, author of The Omega Rebellion, which sold out the first edition in a few weeks last summer, is in a San Diego hospital Emergency toom as I type. All I know is that while delivering his evening message, he suddenly showed great distress and then was rushed to the hospital with a serious heart attack. Rick is on a west coast speaking tour. Next wek he is scheduled for  some meetings at Soquel camp meeting (on satellite), then at several other venues until Aug. 1. His message is clear, convincing, and most timely. All I am doing is sharing this emergency moment with you, doing what the Good Book tells us to do--add our prayers to the angels supporting Rick at this moment. We live in a Great Controversy that becomes more vivid, more personal as the days go by. Please tell the Lord and the angels that you are throwing your mind and heart behind everything eing done by those physicians and by the attending Holy Spirit. Thank you my friends.

Herb Douglass.

I pray that God will enable pastor Howard to continue in his efforts to warn our church members and church leaders about the true nature of "spiritual formation" and the various practices that are involved in it.

It is our privilege to pray for those who cannot yet pray for themselves.

A young mother needs our urgent prayers. Her name is Anna and I can say little more at this time. Her young life is bound, thoroughly roundabout, by hellish circumstances we can little comprehend, yet God has His ways even in the gutter and He is moving to change her life. The events to take place today are critical to her physical existence because she is among the living dead, in every sense of the word. She requires intercessory prayer. Please join me in praying for this precious young woman while we work in concert with Him to help her in any way possible, through whatever avenue He would have us take, to save one.

Please pray for a young medical student who is facing disciplinary action in school. His offense is that he consistently refuses to attend the (mandatory) school chapels. When agreeing to follow school policies in his signed application he added the hand-written caveat that he would do so "insofar as they uplift Christ".  Unfortunately, they have instead largely promoted emerging church and other unscriptural philosophies.

He is now being pressured in subtle and not-so-subtle ways by some in the school administration.

Please pray that the Lord will grant him wisdom to discern the snares laid for him and that he will continue to be an example to others. He is an exemplary student in all other aspects save the chapel attendance.

We pray that you will use this young man as Geodad has requested that we pray for him, to continue to be your witness, that others may learn what it means to be faithful to your Word. We pray for those who are misrepresenting your truth, that through this resistance they may be brought to see their error and your great love for them. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Thank you, eveyone, for the faithful prayers for my friend who had the bad car accident.  Jessica is home now, and in the care of her two daughters.  Wow, they really send you home as soon as possible from the hospital these days!

She has broken bones and brusing, but no internal injuries, praise the Lord!

Continued prayers are appreciated.  She is a Christian, but not and SDA.  Nevertheless, Jesus loves her and wants her to follow Him completely.  Please pray also that I can witness to her...she has been negative to any conversation in that direction.  She loves her own church and doesn't want to rock the boat (at least I think that's the reason).

I am asking for prayers for myself and my daughter. We have a awful case of the flu. Yesterday I had 104.4 all day long. I could not walk without falling and could not read or type very sensabley. My fever came down after two anibiotics. I don't know if that did it or the fact that I let the fever run it's couse. But I am still very sick and my daughter is now also getting sick. Many in the Church seem to be getting this. Please pray also, that my friend Bob does not get it. When he gets sick it is for a long time and he gets life threatening kind of sick.

Grandson's 15 year-old friend was just today diagnosed with this.  :(

Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Infants and children with dilated cardiomyopathy most often present with signs of congestive heart failure. This is when the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs and there is a buildup of fluid in the body tissues and lungs. The heart also becomes congested with blood. Common symptoms in infants are labored breathing that is faster and deeper than normal (tachypnea) when lying down or with exertion, poor appetite and slow weight gain. Older children may show signs of poor exercise tolerance and gastrointestinal distress. Upon examination, children may show swelling of the lungs, an enlarged liver and heart, and abnormal lung and heart sounds related to a rapid, galloping heartbeat and congestion in the lungs. In more severe cases, patients may experience fainting (syncope), irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias), or sudden cardiac death.

There were several instances of this young man fainting at school and it was passed off as something else. Last week he fainted again and went into convulsions and today they learned why. He is grandson's best friend and is constantly in and out of our house. As the son of a Christian mother, this young man knows the benefits of prayer, faith and trust. Sadly, the situation is not the same for his absent father. This child (and his mother) is in great need on many fronts. Please join us in prayer for him.

The symptoms can be eased but of course, there is no cure outside of a heart transplant. Mother had this condition beginning in her 40s and she lived to be 80, however, pediatric CM is much different. I read late into the night and found the growth spurt associated with puberty is especially hard on a teen heart. Along with his mother, we are scouring the web to see what can be done and will do everything possible to help them. Today he is coming to our house for several days. Thank you for your prayers.

Here they are! Grandson is on the right.  :) They are busy creating buildings and houses on the laptop. Grandson is 5'7" and his friend is 5'9". Amazing, isn't it? They still have "little kid" faces.

Heavenly Father, how very sad as we think of the pain and suffering of humanity. We come to you in prayer for this young man. We do not know the plans you have for him, but we know your plans are very good. We ask that you work in his life in a way you would not have if we had not prayed for him. Use this situation to bring his mother and father and him closer to you. Give Sybil wisdom and grace to minister to this family as she has been doing, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

We received an update and corrected diagnosis on grandson's friend. He has Marfan Syndrome http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/marfan-syndrome/DS00540 instead of the initial diagnosis shown above. It has caused his aorta to greatly enlarge. For now the docs have him on a beta blocker. Today he entered his first day of high school. We continue to pray for this great kid!

I met Angel (a middle-age German American) about two years ago while answering a call, for my handyman services, from a 90yr. old man who lives in a town about 10 miles away from us. Angel was doing house-cleaning for Matthew and his one month younger (90yr. old) wife, Lola (who has had Alzheimer's for about 10 years, now). Angel has known this couple since before Lola had her symptoms.

To make a long story shorter, Matthew attempted, recently, to change a yard-light on his own ladder and fell, hitting his head on a sharp rock, causing an hematoma to the brain, affecting a stroke which has left him paralyzed on his right side (temporarily?). -Both Matthew and Lola, subsequently, are now in a Nursing Facility.

Angel called me over this last Thursday to winterize the Swamp-cooler at Matthew's Place. While there, I could see Angel was struggling with the situation, and as I spoke with her a few moments, she opened up, admitting (in her thick German-English accent) that she was "at the end of her rope". She and her husband are having problems and now separated; she's staying right now at Matthew's Place. Matthew and Lola are in the Rest Home; her "x" died recently and she has to go to Germany to sell his house and she can't understand the German Attorney's letters to her; she cannot afford to go to Germany because her car has been having mechanical troubles so she's lost a number of her house-cleaning jobs, and doesn't have enough money to go.

Angel finally admitted that she's drinking too much (and smelled like it). I told her kindly that God loves her and has a plan for her life, if she would only listen to the quiet prompting of His Spirit. She had told me she had been going to a nearby non-denominational church group not far away, but had stopped. She told me she was raised catholic and hates that religion, doesn't go any more to that little church nearby, saying, "There's something missing".

I told Angel to please save her liquor-money for gasoline and for getting her car fixed. She apologized for her condition and for "speaking French", -"could I forgive her?" I assured her I did. -She wanted to cry on my shoulder, but I told her that I had to leave, that she could go right back into Matthew's house and tell God all her troubles, just like everything she was telling me; to yell and scream and cry, if she felt like it, and that He would hear and understand. I told her that He holds all the worlds in their orbits and is rather more able than me to give her the guidance and help she needs so desperately.

Will each of you please include Angel in your prayers that God will draw near, revealing Himself to her in a way that she will recognize, and depend wholly and completely on Him?
Title: Re: Very Urgent Prayer Requests.... Part 2
Post by: Richard Myers on October 13, 2012, 04:41:21 PM
Amen! We will, Glen.

Heavenly Father, we do not know Angel, only what Brother Glen has shared, but you know her. We join with Glen in asking for your intervention in her life. Send angels to encourage her that she can have a life of peace and great joy. Help her to know you as you really are, from her Bible. She has not had the great light that have given to the world. Help her to pick up her Bible and to read it for herself, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Lord please manifest Yourself to Angel in a way that leads her to trust and follow You

and to see that the faith and ideology that Glen represents has the help and healing that no other can offer her,

and please get Glenn the german language MH, SC, DA, PP, GC SOP books and german / english SDA Bible study Lessons that Angel will in due time need,

and put their paths together and open the way for Gelen to introduce the proper SDA lady to Angel that can speak German / English flawlessly and win her heart and give her Bible studies

and use Glen and his SDA brethern and sisters to minister to Angel and like the Apostle Andrew bring her to YOU.

You have plans to use Angel like you did the woman at the well to reach her compatriots,

also, please work to prepare Angel to fulfill YOUR highest and best plans and hopes for her, that she ....
......may Biblically fear You from love and teach others to do so,

......give You glory and teach others to do so, prepare to receive from You as much righteousness and your character as You can continually cause her to hold and put to use, and teach it

.........and worship you as Creator and Lord of the Sabbath in Spirit and in truth, and teach it. 

.......Please cause her to repent and become converted and be baptized and blot out all her sins and secure her life record according to Your best hopes for her

.......... Please rebuild Angel into a sucessful SDA missionary to english / german speakers around the world, and gether her converts before her face before Your great white throne that You and Glen and his brethern & sisters in the faith and Angel may behold the travail of sould for them ... sucessfully completed and be satisfied........ world without end

We have been praying for you, wigina.  There have been many times in my life when God has not immediately answered my prayers. If He does not provide the funds for you today, then He has something better. His promise is that "all things" work together for the good of those who love Him. We can count on that promise. The days that are before us will surprise many. God is working on our characters. We glory in our tribulation. It works for our good and God's glory as we abide in Him. The only thing we shall take to heaven with us, by God's grace, is our character and those that we have influenced for good.

Thank you all for your prayers for my son.  He is doing better now, but things had changed for the worse. Many place a great deal of faith in man instead of in God. That is a mistake. I don't intend to go into detail as to what can happen in a hospital, many already have seen statistics that support the staff wanting to get patients out as fast as they can. I will only say this. There are great risks taken often that are not considered very carefully by some. One such risk are multiple CT scans with contrast in a short period of time. If they need to be done, then realize there is a risk and it goes up when more than one is done in a week. We have been watching a secondary infection and damage to the kidneys very closely for the last five or six days.  God answers prayer! Again, thank you all for you prayers.

The Southeastern Conference Constituency is voting today to elect a woman president of their conference in direct violation of their constitution and bylaws and the direct prohibition from the General Conference. The executive committee is a leader in the rebellion against God and the world church. Let us pray for the members of the constituency who have the power to say yes or no. There has never been a situation as dire as this in the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It has happened in other denominations and the results have been divisions in them. God is not honored in such matters. He wants unity in the church, but that unity must stand on Bible truth.

Please pray for all involved in that conference and most especially for those that need wisdom to know what to say and when to say it in an effort to influence the constituency to be faithful to God and His church.

Heavenly Father, our hearts are sad as we see the rebellion in the hearts of men and women who have been entrusted with great light and leadership positions in your church. We pray for them today, that as they pray for the Holy Spirit to lead them that their hearts will be open to hear that "still small voice" that speaks in harmony with Bible truth. Thank you for the faithful ones who are standing for truth and in support of the world church. Give them an extra measure of your Spirit that they may be used of you to do your will in this matter today. This is a crisis in your church and such a crisis demands a strong response. Only you can give the wisdom, grace, and strength to do what needs to be done. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

There is a weather system headed for our province this Tuesday night and through the day on Wednesday. They are calling it a weather bomb. Cat. 3 with up to 3 ft. of snow. The whole province of Nova Scotia is in the way of it. We are on the coast so it will hit us first.

We will be leaving our place on Tues. evening to go to a safer place. We are in a mobile home and there is a good chance that major damage will be done. This is the kind of storm that can cut us off from all emergency help for the ocean can flood the low parts of the road throwing large boulders and debris onto the highway. Portions of the road could be washed into the ocean.

I am asking you to please remember Nova Scotia in prayer. The Lord can divert this or calm it down before it hits land. The last storm we had was only a Cat. 1 and the destruction was unbelievable. It was high tide at the time and the sea went in under the pavement in places and heaved it and broke it up just like an earthquake had hit. Not to mention the damage to homes along the shore.

Thank you and I will let you know how it all turns out when I can.

Thank you for your prayers. This mornings forcast says we may only get winds of a cat. 1 now. (I believe prayers are being answered before it even starts) The Lord knew I needed to hear that. Please add to your prayers that I will have peace of mind through all of this.  It is so easy to tell others to have peace and to trust and say all the right things but the true test of what you really believe is when it falls on your own doorstep.

It's a beautiful sunny calm day today. It could lull you into not taking this seriously. We have a lot of work to do moving things to safer places on the property. I am emptying my greenhouse and that is a huge job as I had stored everything to do with my garden there last fall. It is FULL.

Praise God for His faithfulness. His hand was on this storm keeping it under control.

We ended up staying at home. The place shook a few times and the gusts were scary at times but today the sun is shining and looking outside we see no damage only a few small limbs down. We have never seen a forcast where all meteorologists were reporting the same thing about this horrific storm that was on it's way so we KNOW God answered all our prayers. All of Nova Scotia was shut down but we have not heard of any damage or injuries. Winds are still high but will gradually die down throughout the day. We haven't heard if there was any damage to the coast line.

There are some union  conferences in the world church that are in open rebellion against the world church. The Dutch Union is one such congress. We understand that it is not just the executive committees in these unions that are at fault, but it is the church membership that has elected delegates who elect the officers of some of these unions, and in other cases they elected the officers of the local conferences who then have elected the union officers.

In the Dutch  Union, the executive committee over ruled their constituency and voted to begin ordaining women prior to the decision of the World Church at San Antonio. This high handedness reveals the situation existing in the Dutch Union. Things are not right, and more troubling than  we shall speak of here. It is my intent  to ask for prayers for the Dutch Union and the faithful church members in that conference. It may be that the union will be allowed to remain in the church for a period of time even if it remains in rebellion. This places  our faithful brothers and sisters in that union in  great trial. Please pray God will reveal Himself to be present through  the faithful in the Netherlands.

An SDA friend from across the state just called. She was pretty animated. A young lady came into her store. The house where she lives is possessed and the lady has not slept for days. Things moving around the house. Lights turning on and off. It sounds like something out of the movies. The lady's 22 year old brother used to play with the Ouija board. I'm sure there is a lot more to this than that. Both live with their mother.

I was asked to pray for Kaleb, his sister Nicole, and their mother, Mary.

Praying for these dear people. 

That Ouija board is very dangerous. My grandmother relied on one when my Mom was growing up. They were Church of England and knew nothing of spiritualism. My Mom would get the Ouija board out on her own and try to get it to work but it would NEVER work for her but her mother got answers every time she used it. After my Mom became a Seventh-day Adventist she was horrified to learn what her Mother was involved in and also very thankful that it never worked for her. I've been very thankful that the effects of this evil practice was not passed on to any in our family.

The devil does not let go easily but prayer is powerful and I will keep this family in my prayers. It would be good if your friend could stay in contact with this family.

Asking for special prayer for our son-in-law Kevin who was in a head on collision a couple of hours ago. All we know is that a lady crossed the line into his lane. She was sent by ambulance also. We do not know who she is or how serious her injuries are. It happened only a couple of miles from home. He is presently in the ER being assessed. They have put a neck brace on as a precaution. He is suffering from pain in his chest area and muscles in general.

He was to fly out tomorrow morning to a meeting at our Canadian University. For some reason he was driving the van home from work and not their small car or it could have been much worse.

Thank you.

We are very grateful this morning to our Father in heaven for His merciful protection over Kevin. He was released from hospital after a 3 hour assessment in the ER with no "serious" injuries. He is recovering in bed at home. Not able to move without help.

The police told them that the lady is wanted for drunk driving and they have not been able to catch her. She lives only a short distance from them but they do not know her. She had a broken ankle along with other unknown injuries. Kevin said that prayers have been answered before they were even said. Maybe there was a very good reason why he was not to go on this trip.

God is so very good!  His angels have continual watch over us. Instead of thinking that God has no control, or God caused this, we  understand we live only because He loves us and keeps our hearts beating moment  by moment. We thank Jesus for His protection over Kevin, who understands prayers were answered before they were prayed. And, all things work together for good for those love and serve Him. It may not be until heaven before Kevin understands more about the accident and why God allowed it, but we all know that God's Word is sure. We can glory in out tribulation, for it works for our good and His glory when we are fully surrendered.

We rejoice with you, Sister Dorine. We see another evidence of God's love and power in a world soon to perish. Alcohol is a curse upon the world, and now look at what is being legalized, marijuana. Satan is taking control over more and more of humanity. Let us pray for the woman who is being used to wreak havoc in her community. She has no control over her actions when she puts the bottle to her lips. Innocent people are dying all over world because of the success Satan has had with drugs that put the mind to sleep and allow Satan to rule. This is one subject we understand we are to be involved in saying "no" to. We praise God it is one of the doctrinal matters in our baptismal vows.

We pray that this grace shown to your son-in-law will encourage him to continue his work for Jesus, Dorine. His time on earth has been lengthened. Satan could not take his life prematurely.  How sad there are so many "teachers" who use the example of the car coming over the line and killing a professed Christian who had just sinned, then asking where the man will go, heaven or hell. He did not have time to repent of his sin. This example is used to teach a lie that one is saved when he sins, he does not have to repent. God is not arbitrary. Our future life or lack thereof is dependent upon where the heart is when we die. God gives us all a period of time to learn of Him and to form a character that reflects Him. He does not allow Satan to take a life prematurely. In Kevin's case, the angels of God intervened. And, so it will be in all whose time of life on this earth is not up. We do not know Kevin's situation. Bad things happen to good people who are walking with Jesus, just as was Job. Other times when one has sinned, Satan seeks to close their probation. But, we see in the Book of Job, he cannot do as he wants. God keeps him back from taking Job's life when Job was perfect and when he was sinning. So it is today. God is in control.

Jesus is going to have very soon a church that will not sin, then He will step out of the heavenly Sanctuary and there will be no more mercy, no more forgiveness of sin. His people will be sealed and their characters fixed for eternity. He would have Kevin and you and me be among that group who will more fully reflect His character as a witness to the universe of the power of grace to keep one from sinning. We pray that our Brother Kevin will be in that last group living at the time of the second coming of Christ. Let us hasten that day.

Thank you Richard for your kind and encouraging words. We are all rejoicing in the mercies of our God.

Since taking over the Food and Furniture Bank in the city Kevin has had 3 accidents.
He has had to make decisions there based on what he knows to be right. He has not been popular for it. Most times standing alone. He has a very keen conscience and knows he could not live with himself if he compromised just to keep others happy. He has seen the working of God on His behalf over and over. I wouldn't be surprised if he thinks that this is an attack from the enemy.

Yes Richard I have relatives that ask these questions about what happens to Christian people that commit a sin and for some reason die without having the opportunity to repent. Also the question...."well do you know anyone that is perfect?"....What kind of a walk must they have with God?

I am so thankful that God has made it very clear if only we will read and study and believe. We must keep forging ahead focusing on Jesus and His word. There will be those that truly want to know but most will not. They just come to their own conclusions and eventually God permits them to believe their lies. What a sad state to be in.

I pray that my life will always be a witness for truth, revealing the fruit of the spirit, to my family and all those that I come in contact with.

Ezekiel 3:20  Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 33:13  When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

."well do you know anyone that is perfect?"

Job 1:1  There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Job 1:8  And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

Job 2:3  And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

First mention definition of fearing God

Deuteronomy 10: KJV & Douay Bibles

12 ¶  (AV) And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
12 ¶  (Douay) And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but that thou fear the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways, and love him, and serve the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul:

13  (AV) To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
13  (Douay) And keep the commandments of the Lord, and his ceremonies, which I command thee this day, that it may be well with thee?

16  (AV) Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.
16  (Douay) Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and stiffen your neck no more.

Quote
   "I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. . . . This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for everyone that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and everyone that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by My name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof." Zechariah 5:1-4.  {Ed 144.4} 
     Against every evildoer God's law utters condemnation. He may disregard that voice, he may seek to drown its warning, but in vain. It follows him. It makes itself heard. It destroys his peace. If unheeded, it pursues him to the grave. It bears witness against him at the judgment. A quenchless fire, it consumes at last soul and body.  {Ed 144.5}
     "What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36, 37.  {Ed 145.1} 
     This is a question that demands consideration by every parent, every teacher, every student--by every human being, young or old. No scheme of business or plan of life can be sound or complete that embraces only the brief years of this present life and makes no provision for the unending future. Let the youth be taught to take eternity into their reckoning. Let them be taught to choose the principles and seek the possessions that are enduring--to lay up for themselves that "treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth;" to make to themselves friends "by means of the mammon of unrighteousness," that when it shall fail, these may receive them "into the eternal tabernacles." Luke 12:33; 16:9, R.V.  {Ed 145.2}
     All who do this are making the best possible preparation for life in this world. No man can lay up treasure in heaven without finding his life on earth thereby enriched and ennobled.  {Ed 145.3} 
     "Godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come." 1 Timothy 4:8.  {Ed 145.4}   

Quote
  The Spirit who asked Zechariah, "What seest thou?" to which he answered, "I see a flying roll," also caused an angel to fly in the midst of heaven, "having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him [let no glory be given to erring, sinful men]; for the hour of his judgment is come." Many indeed will not understand, but will stumble at the words contained in the roll.               Ellen G. White.
     Sanitarium, Cal., Dec. 4, 1905.  {NYI, February 7, 1906 par. 9}     

Quote
    "Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth; for everyone that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and everyone that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name; and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof."  {ST, June 2, 1890 par. 13} 
     The angel is represented as flying through the midst of heaven with a roll in his hand, on which are written the deeds of our daily life. God bears long with the children of men, but there is a time coming when he will cease to bear with them. God wants them to get under the cover of his wings. Jesus is pleading his blood in our behalf, but Satan is standing at his right hand, resisting every effort in our behalf. May God help us to humble our hearts, before it shall be forever too late to make wrongs right.  {ST, June 2, 1890 par. 14} 
     Let the Spirit of God fashion our character and our work. We are responsible for the manner in which the truth is presented. We should seek to impress unbelievers with its exalted character. Christ is soon coming, and those who have not kept the Sabbath sacredly should reform. God will frown upon those who disregard his commandments, and he cannot bless the church that retains Sabbath-breakers in its fellowship.  {ST, June 2, 1890 par. 15} 
     Oh, that Christ might walk among you, that he might say, "Take away the filthy garment, and clothe them with change of raiment." We want to know that we are on the Lord's side. We want to dwell with him through all eternity. Those who sit with Christ on his throne must be partakers with him of his sufferings. They must drink of the cup that he drank of, and be baptized with the baptism that he was baptized with.
                                                                -
  {ST, June 2, 1890 par. 16}

Radical homosexual activists deliberately distort the truth on issues such as this.  Coming Out Ministries does not engage in "conversion therapy," as commonly understood by homosexual "rights" activists.  What they promote is the power of the Holy Spirit to help anyone overcome their sinful propensities, be they sexual or otherwise.

But for radical activists of any stripe, truth doesn't matter; it's the talking points that support their agenda that take precedence.

Another urgent prayer request for a meeting that is taking place today to decide whether to cancel coming out ministries. Apparently it has gone to the top (what ever that means). The Maritime conference does not want to cancel but I was told that they don't have the final say. There was a protest held last evening in the city against coming out ministries coming to our camp meeting. Please pray that God will intervene and that His will, will be done. Thank you.

I'm sad to report that Coming Out Ministries will not be coming to our camp meeting. What I was told was that it is a worldwide decision and not just a NAD.  Even though I'm feeling sick about it I know that God is still in control. Thank you for the prayers that were said on behalf of this issue. God always has a plan. We must trust Him.
