  • Lee – Everybody pray for Tami. Fever has broken and she’s doing better.  She’s still got a ways to go.  If everybody would pray for her I’d be grateful.

  • Colleen – All those who are living in the war-torn countries.  May the wars cease.  May the people be at peace.  Pray for those living in poverty and those who have to walk real far just to get water.  Pray for my mother and her boyfriend.  May they continue to be healthy and happy.  They’re both 85 years old.  I’d like to pray for our friend Mark.  He’s doing OK, but he’s grieving the loss of a good friend.  And my friend Cathy from Brookdale… she recently had her ankle reconstructed, because she broke it really bad.  They considered amputating it but they didn’t.  They reconstructed it.  She’s in a lot of pain and in need of healing.  And my friend Joanna from this place where I’m living.  She’s suffering from a really bad sinus infection.  She’s 92.  When you’re 92 you really need to be concerned about something like that, so, I’d like prayers for her.  And I’d like prayers for myself for a lot of things: for my sister to be more generous with my money and for a lot of things going on in my life.   And praises and thanksgiving to Louis for being our pastor and for everything he does for our church.  And praises to Bill and Rob for everything they may do for our church.  And to all of you my church community who I love so much and I just pray for all of you that your needs are met and that you’re healthy and happy.  And that’s it… Amen!

  • Amy – I’d like some prayers because I’m going through some really bad back pain.  It’s hard for me to move around.  But I do have patches on it and something I take for muscle spasms.  They seem to be helping.  I looked at a place in Penn Hills that I want to move to called Allegheny Place.  It’s a thousand times better than where I’m living.  It’s a perfect fit for me.  Keep your fingers crossed that I get off the waiting list real soon.

  • Diane – I’d like prayers for my sister and her family.  Also prayers for us so we can get our windows replaced real soon because I’m afraid to drive fast on the Parkway to tear off the plastic.  We had 3 windows shot out of our car. I pray that we don’t have the return of the shooter and that we can get windows put in sooner than later.  Prayers for healing and hope for me and Bob and that we may help others.  Prayers of thanks that our dog made it through surgery OK.

Prayers for Lou Martinage’s needs and circumstances, and for his family. And for my brother Steve – his needs and circumstances – that he can get his life back together on SSI and all what he needs to have. That he’ll have peace and contentment.  And for my sister, Sharon, that she has peace of mind with the house situation and with her job and with her family and with her car.  And with Valery and with JJ their needs and circumstances.  And for my nephew, Cody, his needs and circumstances.  That he stays strong, that he keeps on a positive pathway, and not be deterred by any negative influences so he doesn’t backslide.  And for my own special intentions… thank you.

  • Lou – Keep those that are not with us: Kate.  Last week she announced that they had a bedbug problem in her apartment.  Keep Dan in your prayers… he got back from the Emergency Room at Cleveland Clinic… he got back early this week.  I talk to him but he hasn’t made it to either Bible Study or church.  Keep him in your prayers.  Last I heard he was on dialysis which is no picnic from what I’ve heard.  He had a mild form of appendicitis.  They did not remove his appendix but gave him antibiotics to take care of it.  Keep Russ in your prayers.  He should be on his way back to Pittsburgh soon.  Pray for his situation… he needs someone to live with him.  Ken – Russ’s partner – had a good report.  For Vinny… we may not see him till after summer.  Rob who didn’t get much sleep and for other physical issues.  Thank God that we are here and that we can have our worship.

 

Dear God in heaven we are grateful that you are our shepherd… that you have guided us, cared for us, loved us, sacrificed for us.  Thank you for your love for us and may we follow you as our shepherd.  Bless all of those that need your touch.  May we trust in you that your hand is on us guiding us even through the shadow of death.  Bless each person that needs your touch .  Help us to trust in you… to trust in your guidance.  Bless us as we continue to worship and those who are not with us.  Watch over us and keep us in your care… Amen.
