  • Please continue to pray for John Barlow

    12/08/2018 3:49:28 PM PST · by Catmom · 29 replies
    Many thanks to those on FR who responded to my prayer request from last week. As promised, here is an update. John has had serious heart issues for many years. He had a heart attack in his late 40s and has since had stents placed. Recently, he has experienced new chest pain. He underwent an elective heart cath last week which shows he needs a four way cardiac bypass. His surgery will be done either this weekend but no later than Monday. This means he has serious coronary artery disease but he is in one of the better medical centers...

    A few weeks ago I asked you to pray for our friend and "sister" Catherine who had a heart attack. Your prayers made a great impression on Catherine and her family. Thank you all for your prayers and words of encouragement. Nevertheless, last night Catherine lost her fight for life and is in the arms of Jesus now. Please remember the Kane family in your prayers as they try to go on without their mother.
  • Pat Robertson asks followers to help cast 'shield of protection' ahead of hurricane

    The Hill ^ | 09/11/18
    Prominent conservative evangelical leader Pat Robertson has asked his followers to join in on prayer to cast a "shield of protection" ahead of Hurricane Florence. In a video shared online by Right Wing Watch, the televangelist cited a passage from the bible in which Jesus commanded the wind and water on the Sea of Galilee to "be still." While delivering remarks in Virginia, which is home to his Christian Broadcasting Network and where thousands are bracing for Florence's arrival, Robertson asked if his followers could invoke the same words from the passage to accomplish a similar result "if we are...

    It is 1:42 a.m. my time. I have a quintuple bypass scheduled to begin in less than 4 hours and I can't sleep. I'm glad we caught the problem before something drastic happened... About a month ago I started feeling pain in my neck which, if I didn't stop to rest, would head to my chest. I got lousy results from a stress test and a heart catheterization. So here I am a bit nervous. A quick prayer for me and my surgeon would be greatl appreciated!

Treatment has been going on for more than a year. The Doctor is now recommending Spleen removal. This Surgery is in the planning and scheduling stage. Thank you for my FRiends support.

    I am asking for prayers for my Father and Family. My Dad, John Henry is 90 yrs and has been ill for the last 3 yrs. 3 weeks ago he fell and broke his hip and his chances of recovery were very poor. He was being poorly cared for at Mercy Hosp. in Pittsburgh and we moved him to a hospice facility on Friday. He is now out of pain but his time is short. Dad is a proud Veteran of the US Army where he achieved the rank of Master Sgt and was wounded during the Huk rebellion in...

    My Pastor's wife's niece and nephew were killed today by a out of control car, which ran up a curb and hit them in a yard. I cannot imagine) greater grief than losing two kids in one incident. I am generally pretty strong in the Spirit, but I am having a definite strain here...bad things happening to good people. PRAYERS PLEASE for those two poor kids, the family, my pastor and his wife, and myself. Thanks.

    The news was good. We were right on time with our list of questions and the answers made us very happy. Today we went to my wife’s doctor to get his opinion of her situation after her needle biopsy to check for breast cancer. He is very kind and almost as soon as he walked into the examination room he said to my wife, “You do not have cancer. Say that,” He waited until she said “I don’t have cancer,” before he explained that it was unfortunate that the word “carcinoma” is in the diagnosis she was read by the...

    For the past few weeks my wife and I have been dealing with the possibility that she has breast cancer. Today we got a call that says most of the problem is benign BUT there is still something that has to be addressed. We see a surgeon tomorrow and we are hoping he will say any procedure that is called for can be done in a few months as we have lots of things lined up for the summer. We have prayed together about this and are taking things one step at a time. Please pray with us that we...

    A friend is struggling to put his life together and put bad decisions and a terrible act in his past behind him for good. His mother, who is also a friend, has asked me for prayers that he might be granted a special request which will move him forward. I can’t say what it is because doing so would reveal who my friend is and his terrible act would be revealed. I realize that joining me in prayer for this special favor from God which will bring him so much closer to his final reclamation, requires blind faith and trust...

She was awake and talking with the EMTs and doctors all the way though. She is tired but says she feels much better. She will be in the hospital at least until Thursday evening.

    As Easter approaches, one Christian family is praying for a miracle: the return of their kidnapped daughter who refuses to renounce her faith. It’s a story the networks aren’t telling. Last month, terrorist group Boko Haram captured an estimated 110 schoolgirls in Dapchi, Nigeria. On March 21, the Nigerian government confirmed that the girls who survived were freed. But one was missing: the only Christian girl among them, 15-year-old Leah Sharibu. According to her friends, it’s because she refuses to convert to Islam. For Good Friday, the Christian Association of Nigeria called for prayers for Leah, as her father hopes...

    My friend and neighbor has lost his vision. (Navy Veteran) He has a special needs son that would qualify to be institutionalized. But sheer determination has allowed for his son to be cared for at home. My neighbor can no longer drive, or write out checks for his monthly bills. Please pray for this man as he has a heart as big as the state he lives in. (Texas). Thank you !

    Freepers please lift my dear friend Debbie Thompson in prayer. She went to the doctor because she wasn't feeling well this morning and now she's been admitted for a heart Cath tomorrow because her doctor has found blockages. Debbie is a one-in-a million lady who has stepped up and helped me out so many times I cannot count them; the most important one is she has become a surrogate grandmother to my daughter because my own mom passed away over 10 years ago. Debbie is a wonderful christian woman who I consider to be salt of the Earth.
