    My brother, Michael, passed yesterday after an 8 year long battle with cancer. His wife was at his side when it happened. He was comfortable and in no pain. I'd like to thank all of you who sent your prayers, thoughts, and good wishes to his family 2 weeks ago. Michael was a fine man. He leaves behind two children who are both in their teens. This is a devastating loss for them. He was a loving father and devoted husband. I've honestly never seen two people more in love with each other. I think the happiest I ever saw...

    Hey everyone. I'm kind of going through a hard time right now. I have a history of really nasty cancer in my family and I just got the results back from an ultrasound and there is a mass growing in the center of my body right under my sternum. I go on Monday for to schedule the CT scan to see what I'm dealing with. I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping a brave face up in front of my family but I'm an anxious mess. I was born Catholic but have since lapsed but I do try to...

    Prayer request | 01/07/2017 | Swordmaker
    Friday morning, just after midnight as I was turning off the TV from watch a movie on Netflix, I felt a sudden pressure and pain in the center of my chest. This pain went through my chest to my back and a bit in my left upper arm. There also, for some strange reason an ache in my right elbow, and later radiatingup my back to both side of my rear neck. I woke my girlfriend who is an RN. She took my blood pressure which is usually normal, but this time was 189/129. The next important number was 911....

    She fainted yesterday morning, left the hospital against medical advice because she felt fine. She had a rash at that time. I managed to talk her into letting me take her back. The ER doctor thinks she has Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a life-threatening skin condition that is a reaction to medication. They put bad cases in the burn unit because the top layer of skin dies. My mother felt good last night, which is NOT typical of S-J. The treatment protocol isn't well-defined (debate over steroids). A lot depends on the body's resilience and my mother is in her late seventies....

    America, please wake up and realize God put this man in place with lots of prayers and pleadings by Christians everywhere, specifically. He may not be perfect, but if he becomes President, he may turn the tide of evil back with his influence. Do what is right and take yourself, your spouse, our children, your family and friends to worship services Wednesday night (yes, Wednesday) and certainly Sunday and give thanks that God turned back the evil to give you time to get your lives in order. Do what is right and God will bless this nation. Do what is...

    Our friend, and longtime freeper, PennsylvaniaMom is in dire need of prayers.

  • A tale of two opening prayers: RNC and DNC side by side

    Canada Free Press ^ | 07/29/16 | Dan Calabrese
    I donít think I need to say too much here. They videos speak for themselves pretty nicely. But Iíll make these two observations: The RNC prayer makes multiple mentions of Jesus and acknowledges His lordship, while not mentioning any political candidate a single time. DNC mentions: Hillary 1, Jesus 0. I am quite aware that different churches have different styles of worship, but even urban Pentecostal churches donít whoop and holler during prayer. Every other time, you bet, but not during prayer.
