...about an incident most of you may have heard about on the national news about a year ago concerning a 15 year old that had shot a school teacher at his junior prom in Edinboro PA. I had recenly become involved with those related to the incident, i am now working for the brother of John Gillette, the victim that died of a gun shot from the student. ...please keep this family in prayer and myself that God may open the door that he may minister to them. this was a contractor that i very much did not want to work for, and believe with all my heart that if God has placed me there for other reasons then to build walls, but to tear some down also. would appreciate all your prayers for it is that that breaks the yoke of bondage.

God has opened the door for my family to be part of an organization that works with US military chaplains to bring a high quality youth ministry to the chapels. I will become the youth ministry director at the U.S. Naval Air Station, Keflavik, Iceland. Most of the funds will come from a contract with the Chapel, however, we will have to raise some support. We ask for prayer that God will raise up people to be a part of our support team, spiritually as well as financially. Lord willing, we plan to leave for Iceland near the end of November, beginning of December 99. rayk68@hotmail.com

I want to ask you for prayer for our city, QUITO, ECUADOR. This city is at the feet of a volcano, which has been asleep for hundreds of years, and it started volcanic activity some months ago. We were in yellow alert, but today it changed to orange alert, which means that they expect that it will start eruption soon. Classes were suspended and many parts are being evacuated. People are very worried, and there are many people in danger. This country is having so many economic difficulties, so much poverty and now this...

Ed Shearer shares:
just found out that a friend of mine, Vicki Cooper, has had a tragedy come into her life. This lady and her husband, Lamarr, are truly laborers for Christ. Lamarr is a Pentecostal preacher (Assemblies of God) and Vicki had one of the most beautiful voices you'd want to hear. For quite some time they had their own segment on PTL, locally based in Richmond, Ind., and untold thousands have been blessed by their preaching and singing. Vicki caught some kind of throat infection and had to have an operation. Something went wrong during the operation and now she cannot sing a word. The doctors say this is a permanent condition, but I believe there is another doctor who still does the impossible, Doctor JESUS! I cannot help but believe that He is not through using Vicki for His glory. Please pray that He will intercede for her and give her healing. But if this is not His plan, pray that He will use her in an even greater way according to His will and purpose. EJSHE256@aol.com

Adam Connellan shares:
My grandmother was diagnosed with cancer about three months ago. It was very serious and they did emergency surgery. They took out a tumor that was attached to her left kidney that was the size of a basketball! The doctors were positive about the surgery's result and said that she should recover well. The also told us that this cancer has a high rate of reoccurrence. We were all relived that things had gone well. About a week ago my grandmother went back in to see the doctor, this time the doctor found that the cancer had come back. This time it is attacking the inner lining of her abdomen. It's very serious and there is little that the doctors can do to fight the cancer. They say that she only has about a 15% chance of the treatment actually working. Some doctors have given her six months to live, other's are not so hopeful. All I ask of you is that you would pray for her, pray for a miracle, but more importantly pray for her salvation. She has never responded very well to the gospel, but I believe that her heart has been opening up, perhaps under the circumstances, and through your prayers she might come to know the Lord Jesus Christ and her personal Saviour.

A single female pastor (her name is Anne) living in Toronto is in great need of multiple breakthroughs in the financial realm (the financial burden is getting intolerable) and in the physical health realm (neck-back pain; heart condition). In particular, this pastor desperately needs a new place to live. It has been a long battle and lately she is experiencing fairly serious depression. This pastor has been praying for God's deliverance and has been planting seeds in other ministries and people's lives but still feels overwhelmed with troubles. Your prayers are much appreciated. ebisuzaki_r@yahoo.com

Praise Report from Terri:
Yesterday we received the best news. They found no cancer cells in my husband Sherm's bone marrow. This miracle came thru all the prayers from all these good people. Praise God and Jesus for this miracle. In March they found the leukemia and said if he had not come to the hospital with a fever the cancer was spreading so fast that he would have died in 5 days. The Lord has been good to us and we know all the people praying for him made this miracle possible. Without prayer, where would we be? SCMama2@webtv.net

Praise Report from Ken:
A few weeks ago we were praying for a co-worker's daughter, Pam, who was undergoing sergury for tumoors on her ovaries. Well, she got a total hysterectomy, and quickly recovered and was able to go home sooner than expected!!! Not only was this an answer to prayer, but also, some new developments came about... When she was 16, she had an AVM, Arteriovenous Malformation, basically a knot of arteries and veins in her brain. The location of the knot was in the center of her brain, so the DR.'s were unable to operate at that time. She is know into her late 20's, early 30's, and had to have a MRI done to determine which type of chemo therapy they would be able to use to rid her of the cancer that had effected her ovaries. Well, she went, with her husband, to a Neurologist who said something to the effect of " I don't know what'll kill you first the AVM or the cancer ...". This upset Pam, but she has faith in the Lord... She told her husband ..."I don't know why they want to do a MRI, They're not going to find anything ..."To make a long story short, ... The Neurologist look over the MRI and said ... "Obviously they operated on it b/c it is not there.." (PTL!!!) She also belives that her cancer is not there as well... She said to her father ..." God took care of my AVM and he's taken care of the cancer as well!" Her Faith has been an inspiration to us her at work ... Please lift her up in Thanksgiving to the LORD, and that the chemo she will be revieving, per DR's orders, will have little sickness effect on her. According to Pam, "I don't need it anyway ... but to satisfy those who don't believe it's gone I'll take it anyway..." KRieder@Broyhillfurn.com

Praise Report from Keith Huddle: I had a job interview yesterday. I didn't want the job I applied for, but at least it was a job, and would be a starting point. The strange thing is, that while being interviewed for the one job, I mentioned how if an opening came up in another field was ever available, would she please remember me. The lady promised that she would, and offered to check into the possibility of it that day, if my job references were good. Well, they called this afternoon and wanted me to return the call. It turns out the job I truely wanted was available and I start tomorrow. This opening appeared yesterday, for before that, it was not there.:) I thank all of your for your concern, prayers, and e-mail during this time. k858@prodigy.net

I need prayer and my brother's first wife said that my mother was a mean lady and she felt sorry for my dad. She also said I am vindictive and she has put up with my temper tantrums since she was 17. I had encephalitis when I was 2 1/2 and at that time they did not have the help then that they do now with Independent Living Centers and Mental Health Clinics and Counselors to talk with. I was in and out of state hospitals most of my life and they said that it was wrong to have put us in the institutions and that now they are not allowed to do it. She is too stupid to try to understand the encephalitis and she will not accept me as I am now and only wants to think of me in the past. She is not very compassionate enough and she is not forgiving and I do not think God has forgiven me because she has not forgiven me. ruthf220@exotrope.net

About 8 years ago my sister had emergency hysterectomy and they removed a huge malignant tumor. They said at that time they got it all. Then other tumors started popping up. They thought it was cancer, but eventually it was diagnosed as a blood disorder called "Polycythemia Vera". Tumors are a side effect of this blood disorder. The blood disorder itself is non-curable. Victims have a 9 to 15 year span then start developing other things such as blindness, kidney problems, as many others. Most die from it. Over the past 8 years she has been going through chemo and radiation almost all the time... So far nothing has helped. During this time in Feb. 1994 she was hit by a log truck and her hip bone was fractured in numerous places and she was on a walker for several months. They told her eventually she would have to have hip surgery. March of that same year her son was killed in an automobile accident. She has been and is still going through so much. Ccjs55@aol.com

Just a note to let you know that we are all right. We have lost everything we own in this flood. We were trapped since Thursday. The roof was the only thing visible when we left. Toodles for now. I am at a friends but I wanted to let you know. I appreciate your prayers and I will tell you later about how God opened the door to witness in the people of the flood.

I would like to add Lorraine to your prayer list... she is a young mom with 3 children who now has been diagnosed with colon cancer... she is very ill some days and on others she seems to be able to function. Lorraine has made up her mind to treat this without kemo therapy... she is using herbal and dietary methods. She is a christian and her belief is holding fast onto the Lord but her family life is deterating and her husband is not kind to her. I pray you would lift her up in prayer daily to fight these battles and to give her strength and comfort. She is only about 80 pounds now so she needs to build up body mass as well... gladrags2@webtv.net

on Friday around 10:30 I received a visit from the Alabaster Police Department informing me that my 30 year old daughter and my two grand children had been in a horrible car accident. It was a head on collision and my daughter and 10 year old granddaughter did not survive. My 8 year old grandson is in Children's Hospital in Birmingham, Ala. in intensive Care after a 4 hour surgery repairing broken femur bones in both legs. He has had pins and rods put in both legs and has been given blood but seems to be pulling through. He does not know yet that he has lost his Mother and sister. I will have the task of telling him that on Sunday. The doctors say he will not be able to walk for at least two months and will have to have extensive therapy. I am his nearest living relative and will be bringing him home with me to live. His father committed suicide last year.Also on Sunday, I will be going to Southern Heritage Funeral home in Pelham, Alabama to arrange the funeral for my lovely daughter and my precious granddaughter. Friends.....I need your help. Please send this email to everyone you know and ask that they pray for me and my family. I can't seem to find the strength I need to deal with this right now. I also have a 26 yr. old daughter and son-in-law who are with me right now, along with a multitude of friends and family but still request your prayers.

Tonight at the end of our service, one of our ladies requested prayer for her family. It seems their 18-year old (still in HS) daughter went out Saturday night and never came home. She is currently staying in motel with an underage girl from school. The father will be up shortly (he has to work tonight), and I'm going to go see them when he gets up. This family has been through terrible problems these past few years. We formed a circle around the mother and prayed for them as we left. The father's name is Larry. The mother's name is Vicki. The daughter's name is Carin (pronounced Kah-rin). twwhite@olp.net

I need prayer for my son. He has been in our state through a interstate compact, which our state did not accept, after he did time for a probation violation which they found out about, when he requested the interstate compact. Now Arizona wants him to come back. He was living in the desert, knows no-one, and has no financial means. He is on probation in AZ. We paid for his fare to come back to our state, and they want him to pay his own way back. My son does not want to go back , and we would like to have him stay with us until he gets on his feet. Pray that this state will accept his probation transference, so that he can remain here with his family. We fear if he goes back , he will get back on heroin , and will get introuble again. He has rededicated his life to God, and prayer is needed that Gods will be done for his life. His chances of a changed and clean life are better if he remains in this state. We are in the northeast US.

Please pray for me and my situation. I am married to an alcoholic who I feel is also manic/depressive. Well, Monday I found out I am pregnant with our 3rd child. My husband's reaction crushed me. He said he didn't want it and it was a major inconvenience to him and a burden and he doesn't want me to go through with it. Well, I was crushed because never once did he refer to the baby as a baby but always an object. Now he says I am not having this baby and I am going to have an abortion. I told him if he feels that way to leave us and never come back. That my children are better off without a dad then one who doesn't want them and resents them. I pray that Jesus will send me the perfect lifemate for me since it's not Allen. CBEAR728@aol.com

Please pray about the situation with Hurricane Floyd.

Praise report from Donald J Luszczewski:
I really believe that God moved this storm away from us by His hand and in His mercy. Yesterday afternoon (early) they were actually predicting that the storm would make landfall somewhere around Cape Canaveral. That is just shy of 30 miles from here. That would have been bad news! We made it through without a scratch. We lost power for about 6 hours and that was it. aconsumingfire@juno.com

Greetings from Jamaica!! We finally arrived in Jamaica about two weeks ago and I have finally gotten online. Our new address is: sworkman@cwjamaica.com The bad news is that a week after we arrived we had thieves in the house. There were three men with guns who robbed us of our money and some other things. I just discovered that one of the things they took was my CD case of software for my Mac. The good news is that no one was hurt in the incident, and we got the opportunity to witness to them and pray with them that God would change their lives before they left. We also handed them Bibles to take with them as they left. All in all, though it was a frightening experience, it was a wonderful lesson on the grace and power of God. If you would, please pray for us, especially my wife and son as we try to get over all this. God has been good and we are not discouraged, but something like this can make a profound effect on how you look at things in the future. http://www.mightyagape.com

Suzanne shares an update:
Jason continues to heal in the Program that he was mandated to by the courts in Santa Barbaraaa. In a coulr appearance yesterday, routine, the judge complimented him on his exemplary behavior and his devotion to the work of the program. His random drug testing results have been negative, and his attitude seems to be less hostile and more positive. I hope that he is calling God his All in All and giving Him the glory for the miracle. Please continue to uphold him, as prayer has been a motivating force thru all of this I know. And so I say Thank You Jesus and know that God hears prayer and forgives those who turn their lives and will over to Him while proclaiming him King over their helplessness. brranch@bendnet.com

Pray for revival at our Revival and pray that the Lord is working in our area right now, pray for a soul to be saved! Please pray for Eddie Wayne Boley, He has a brain tumor and the Drs. could not get all of it and it is cancer. He will be flown to Houston, Texas this Friday for more surgery. They think more can be gotten with a laser knife, but don't know how long his life will be prolonged if any. Now the most is three months. Please pray for me, I need strength during this time! Pray for Cody and I as we try to get our home school on schedule and can stay that way! Pray for Emmaus Baptist Church as we try to get our building fund up to the amount we need to build our Family Life Center, land was donated and has been surveyed, but we are trying to avoid going into debt when we build.

Update from Pastor Todd White (South Heights Baptist Church, Sapulpa, Oklahoma):
Our Music Minster's last day was Sunday. He simply came to the place where he felt the things he was brought here to do had been accomplished, and it was time to move on. He did a wonderful job - we all miss him already.
Please be in prayer for Mr. Steven Talley and his wife, Diane. They have been looking for a church home in our city for several months now, but haven't found it yet. Steven has musical abilities, and has led church music before (if I remember correctly). Perhaps he could be the one God has for us to lead us musically, at least for now. He is praying this week about God's will in the matter (whether to help us on an interim basis). Please pray for he and his wife as they seek the will of God for their life.
Please also pray for our church in these areas:
* Salvation - that souls will be saved.
* The "spirit" (atmosphere) in our church - that it be conducive to the ministering of the Holy Spirit, one of joy, excitement, and anticipation of what God will do next.
* Church Finances - still verrrrry tight.
* Visitors and new members (a wonderful couple joined Sunday Evening!)
* Our men - that God will motivate and grow up a group of Christ-like men from our congregation to serve Him and lead others to follow Christ in His Church.

I went to Ada this morning to see a member at Carl Albert indian hospital who is 39 and has three children. The doctors at the hospital nearly killed him while doing a minor outpatient procedure. The night before, I thought my phone might ring at any time to tell me he was dead. They had told his wife there was nothing they could do for him for 72 hours. They had poked a hole in his esophagus and when he breathed, air entered his body. He swelled up grotesquely. His wife said he looked like he weighed about 400 lb.s. He normally does not way 200. I got there this morning, and noticed as I drove in someone being wheeled into a helicopter. I got to ICU and was told he had been mediflighted to Baptist Hospital in OKC. After being taken to Baptist Hospital in Oklahoma City: ...they had done surgery to correct what had been done to him at Carl Albert hospital. The surgeons at Baptist basically said he had been butchered. We had all thought he was going to die. His wife was told to contact all of his family and have them come and see him. He is stable now, but will be in the hospital for a very long time. storm@texoma-ok.com

Please pray for my son Andrew's little boy Clayton. He's 5 years old and had a fall a couple of days ago off of his brother's shoulders, hitting his head on the floor. He kept complaining with his head hurting so we took him to the ER to have him looked at. After doing a CAT SCAN the doctor said he couldn't see anything wrong. The next day they called from the hospital and said that some other doctors and a neurologist had looked at the pictures and said there was definitely a small spot on his brain and they think it is a tumor. This was obviously not from the fall but had been growing for some time. I guess it was actually a blessing that he fell and went to the ER or they would not have found it. One of Andy's wife's friends is a pedeatric doctor, and she said that if it was what they suspected that it was very serious and that the mortality rate for this type thing in children was very high. They are going to do an MRI on Clayton tomorrow to confirm exactly what it is. EJSHE256@aol.com

He had surgery and has 8 screws and a metal plate in his foot. He is back to work now. He still has some pain and the ankle is not as mobile as it was but we believe that in time it will be good as new. We appreciated all the prayers. God has certainly blessed us in many ways!

Lee shares update on her daughter Cindy:
I just got home from the hospital and Cindy is out of surgery and in ICU. She was in surgery five hours. The doctor said that it was a "difficult" surgery. She had problems with the anesthesia due to her athsma and she was wheezing. I talked to her and she looked good. She has no NG tube or respirator. I think the worst is over. She will probably be in a regular room by tomorrow or the next day. I asked her how she felt and she said "Well, mom, I just feel like getting up and dancing a jig!" Well, she still has her sense of humor so that's a good sign. I'm going back to the hospital in a little while so I'll get back to you all later.

I have another prayer request. My daughter's jaw has suddenly become sore and swollen. I really don't have the finances to take her to a dentist or a doctor. I know God can heal, but I need help praying. I've always trusted the Lord for my children's health and He's been faithful this far. But I feel led to ask for help this time. I know that God can heal her jaw so that she won't have to have any work done. gawill@mindspring.com

Reeya shares two requests:
First of all, my grandfather had been diagnosed with terminal cancer a few months ago....He has been in a tremendous amount of pain and the doctors could find nothing to help him be more at peace. Well, it turns out that last Tuesday, he shot himself. His letter said he couldn't take the pain any longer, and he didn't want to drain away his wife's savings just so he could die. I need for everyone to pray for God to be merciful on his soul. Deep down, he was a good man, but in the end, the pain was too much for him. Second of all, my best friend Megan's' dad died Thursday of causes unknown. He and Megann and gotten into a huge fight over the summer and they had yet to make up so Megann is feeling very guilty and very despondent, so please, if you could pray for her peace of mind to be restored, as she needs all the help she can get. She thought she had all the time in the world to make up with him, but as you can see, you should never miss an opportunity to tell those you care about that you love them. She has learned this the hard way. Sweetreeya@aol.com

Rodney Erps shares:
Lately I have been really down to the point to where I dont care whether I live anymore or not. I don't consider myself suicidal but find myself praying to God to take my life because I just don't want to live anymore. I have been a Christian for 21 years and out of that 21 years I have been nothing but a flip flopper. Flipping baqck and forth from secular to Christian life. I do not feel like I am worth anything to anyone. I am at the point to where that life seems more like a burden than a joy. Nothing I ever do seems to turn out right. I get nervous at work and feel like some people are talking about me. I went through that years ago but over came that pretty much but it's come back and it seems worse now. I am not a very good Christian and never claimed to be. I do want to change but something seems to be standing in the way. Rod1960@yahoo.com icq#13315499

Melissa shares: Susie is two months old today, and still at Children's Hospital. She gained a little weight, up to 8 lbs., 7 oz. The nursing is working! The trach is helping her breathe and she has been on and off supplemental oxygen numerous times. Today she is off of it. The doctors are satisfied with her response to the medications, even the thyroid. I have my reservations about her heart rate swinging wildly. We don't know if the growth hormone is doing anything for her at this point. We may be able to bring her home soon if she continues to gain weight on a consistent basis. Heal4Kids@aol.com

Bob Larsen shares:
My oldest son, Micah will be 23 this month. Last week he moved out. That is not a problem, I didn't expect him to stay home for ever, but he seems to want to cut himself from his entire family completely. He says he is a very private person. He didn't give us his phone # or address. I was very close to him when he was young, we spent much time together. Of late, he has been so distant from us and I have no idea what is going on inside of him. I don't even know what his relationship with the Lord is. One thread of hope is that his best friend is a Christian, a student at the local Bible college. My greatest concern for Micah and my other 3 sons is that they would know the joy of walking with the Lord and serving Him and that they would be with Him for eternity. Please pray for Micah and my family. bobert859@webtv.net

Another one of my co-workers askef for prayer today and I told her I would spread the request. He only daughter is in a relationship with a man who has been married before. The mother is a strong christian woman. All she asks is that Gods will be done. She's not sure that this is the one God has picked for her daughter. I know for myself before I married I asked the Lord to send my husband and He did and we were together until his death. God gave me a Godly man and I believe that if we sincerely ask him to work out our personal relationship a lot of people wouldn't be divorced right now. I know that some people get out of the will of God and therefore that causes a split later on, but you know what I mean. Lets pray with this mother that God's will be done in this daughters life. gawill@mindspring.com

Praise Report from Joni Kalos:
Good news at long last after 23yr of prayer! My daughter Michele has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her Saviour. She was in a homosexual relationship and that has gone. Michele also smoked and even the desire of nicotine has vanished! Michel wrote and told me of the great things God has done and is doing for her. Besides the peace of mind and joy the Lord supplied all of those material needs..a house full of furniture plus a holiday.! I am beside myself with Joy! Praise the Lord and thank you all for your prayers. I had asked you to pray for my families salvation but I did not go into detail about Michele. Now I am waiting for the rest of the family to follow... another 7 to go! JoniKalos@bc.sympatico.ca

Lee Taylor shares:
Please put my daughter Cindy in your prayer requests. Her weight loss surgery is Friday morning. You probably know about it already from my posts to the list. I know that she is in the Lord's hands but I'm her mother and I can't help but feel anxious. At 529 pounds there is no other option for Cindy other than surgery. She has so many weight related health problems that I fear she won't live to see 40 (she's 35)if she doesn't lose weight. She is a beautiful, gifted, Christian woman with so much to give to the Lord. Pray that He guides the hand of the surgeon Friday. I guess I have to unload on you guys because I certainly can't let Cindy know that I am the least bit upset. Thanks for your wonderful fellowship.
Lee later shared this: Well guys I was sick all last night and this morning with my stomach. I really don't need this right now. Cindy's surgery is tomorrow morning. I think that it's my nerves. I don't feel like eating anything and if I force myself, I end up getting sick. Please pray that I feel better by tomorrow morning. My daughter needs me tomorrow. It's going to be bad enough sitting in the waiting room for 5 hours while she's in surgery but it will be worse if I'm weak from throwing up. I'll be so glad when this is all over. Please, please pray. sing4him@cyberenet.net

Jerry Gaffney shares praise report/update on situation where police planning to shut down meeting:
I want to thank you for all you prayers and support for the meeting last Friday. I have 466 emails in my in box right now. What a blessing and an encouragement you have been. When the police showed up Thursday to shut us down I knew the Lord was in it. Calls came from all over the world to help. From Australia, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Uganda, England, Ireland, Japan and all over the orient. Calls came from almost every state in the United States. A Senator called city hall. National Magazines called to find out what was going on. National TV networks called to see if they were going to do it again. Churches and national ministries called to lend their support. Lawyers called to offer their support. I had never seen such favour of God. I want to thank you all for having the heart to pray. It really worked. People stayed and prayed all day. People drove for hundreds of miles just to be at the last meeting. And what a service we had. Even though the police showed up again. Even though they stood around the tent. Even though people said they were pulled over by the police on the way to the meetings. The power of the Lord was present to heal, save and deliver. Jean Darnall flew in from Hawaii and preached with me on the wonderful move of God the last few years. As we made the altar call so many came for prayer who could count. We felt the love and wonderment of Jesus and the Body of Christ. jgaffney@myhome.net

Mike Hodapp shares update:
I got home Saturday afternoon and of course checked my email 1200 in all from many sources. Thank you all. Due to the volume I don't have the time to answer each one so please accept this as a reply to all. Sean is home and for the time doing much better. When we went to the hospital it was for at fever. The blood cultures kept coming back negative, so they were looking at the liver and spleen as the cause. On the second night there at about 9 PM Sean got a nosebleed. We have told the Doctors in the past that we were having problems with nose bleeding and the stools did not look right. 5 hours later they realized what we had been going through. This was the worst one he had . Our room looked like a mash surgery room by the time this was over. Every once in a while Sean would sneeze because he was drowning in blood,blowing red splatters all over the room. Between what he had lost from his nose and postnasal drip he had lost a large amount of blood. I was extremely grateful knowing that we had so many prayer partners praying for Sean. Next was to replace the blood before it started again. They took Blood tests and found hemogoblin (red blood cells) count was very low also the platelet were quite low. Sean got blood twice over the next 36 hours. The counts are still low but they want the body to replace the rest it's self. Sean is now out of danger and home; but their concern is that the livers and spleen is the cause of this problem and they are trying to prepare us for the fact that his time with us may not be long. Many Dr visits , hospital trips (some may be to Omaha), and the final trip to meet Jesus. Please keep Sean, us, Social workers, and the biological family in your prayers. psalm.119.105@juno.com

I am a triplegic but have not given up on life yet. I had to sell my home to move near my son in Williamsburg, VA. I am typing you both with my left hand. There is nothing wrong with my mind and my "damn the torpedoes" attitude! I have applied for Medicaid, dwelling in a government subsidized public housing project, with an paid attendant, live in, personal driver (I provide my own handicapped equipped van). I am 20 or so years younger than those here, although there are a few younger who have had traumatic injuries. My personal life management is very important to me. I don't wish to be kept, although admittedly I must have some physical assistance as I have had for the last 11 years since my divorce I was one of 20 persons in VA that developed the Personal Assistant Services program and proved I could live independantly. Even if I can find true love, it is only fair to have day-time aides so that my wife (when ever) would not be physically put upon. However, getting my life reorganized is my main priority. I have been in constant severe to moderate) pain since my injury and I refuse to give up. I drive my own scooter wheelchair, feed myself, meet with my son and family near here. If you love the Lord God, his son, Jesus Christ, pray in His name for the healing of my body, the continuing of my faith and strength to 'carry on' for I believe prayer changes things. It has for me, it will again! Smileyleo@webtv.net

Pastor Todd White shares:
We must be doing something right these days in our church - Satan is really attacking many of our people in various ways. Ever since we began asking people to pray and follow God's leading for our church, we've been hit from every side. I'm requesting some serious, immediate prayer for the following:
1. A very dear young (early 30's) woman in our church is being tempted to sin. Please pray a hedge of thorns about her, her family, and her co-workers. Ask God to protect her mind from damaging thoughts, and to fill her with His Word. This is a very serious problem - one that could rip her family apart.
2. A young man (late 20's) in our church who has neglected his wife in favor of playing these games on the Internet. I'm not sure how those things work, as I've never messed with them, but they are apparently highly addictive. Pray for his wife who is horribly frustrated and stressed by the situation. This is very serious, also. Please pray for the wife to have peace
3. A woman whose lost husband is really giving her problems as of late. Pray for her and for his salvation.
4. The wife of our Music Minister - has been recently filled with anger, animosity, and tremendous rebellion. She wouldn't even sing one hymn her husband led in church Sunday. Many have tried to approach her - but she will not allow us to help restore her. This is also very serious.
5. A man in our church who is having problems with his thought life. Pray for him to be protected, too, with a hedge of thorns so that he can keep his mind fixed on the Lord. Pray for strength for him to begin reading his Bible on a regular, daily basis, and to have a real prayer life.
6. Another man in our church who is struggling at home with family and with finances. Please pray for him to be the kind of leader in the home, and that his wife will let him lead.
7. My wife - please pray for my wife, Shirley. She has been really disturbed by the turn of events these past few weeks, and it is really stressing her out. Pray for peace in her heart, and that I might be more of a comfort and strength to her.
8. Our church finances - we are BARELY surviving as a church right now - please pray for God to move in the hearts of His people to be faithful to give according to His Word.
9. Visitors - all of the sudden, our visitors have stopped returning again. Please pray for God's Spirit to be evident in our services, and that they will return and JOIN!
10. Me - that I might be stronger in the Lord and be a better leader of the people of God here. I am not "down", but I DO need your prayers for strength and wisdom. There's a whole lot more that we need prayer for, but these are the most pressing requests I have for you at this time. Thanks for your loving, prayerful concern. It really helps knowing we're not alone! twwhite@olp.net

Ed - Please pray for me as I write these devotionals and at the same time that I may be the pastor and everything God wants me to be. Please also pray for the Burning Bush Discussion List that it may be a tool used of God.

I sent in a prayer requset for prayer about a possible Bible Study at my work place. Well, I just want to thank all who have prayed about this b/c we have 7 members who are attending and are asking if they could invite others! (PTL!)

Please pray for Virginia, she has a constant nagging cough. We bind it in the name of Jesus, and cast it out. Also please pray for Tracy, for his unspoken healing request.

Patti shares:
About a year and a half ago my husband and I made some very large changes in our life, because we honestly felt it was what the Lord was leading us to do. We still feel that. We just didn't handle everything properly, and now find ourselves in a terrible financial crisis. I don't even know how to word this without going into a long story, so I'll just ask that you please pray for our financial situation, and for God to give us wisdom with our finances. patom@peoplescom.net

Ken Rieder shares:
A co-worker of mine has a prayer request. Nancy sent this e-mail to me this afternoon, "My husband's nephew, who is a freshman in high school, just went for a physical. They found he had high blood pressure and a heart murmur. They wanted to send him to a doctor in Hickory but that doctor didn't want to take the case. He wanted him sent to Winston. The family doesn't have insurance. They are out of church and have been for several years. Maybe God is doing this to get their attention. I don't know, but please pray for the whole family."
