New Prayer Requests
Jean Ann Duckworth: My eye doctor discovered elevated pressure behind my left eye. She referred me to a specialist. Praying for a good result & not glaucoma. Also, I am determined to move my women’s ministry forward during Lent. Praying for focus & direction. Thank you!
Cathy Dixon: Prayers for Several of our California friends who have covid. May the recover quickly without any after effects.
Sarah Watson: My biggest prayer concerns are for several friends in Texas and Mississippi. They are without power and thus have no heat. One couple just moved from Murrieta to Celina, TX in January to be closer to one of their sons. This storm/freeze was not in their plans. Fortunately, all these friends are believers, but these are extremely difficult conditions. I’m afraid the death toll from freezing will keep growing.
My daughter Katie had her gallbladder out months ago, but had one incision spot that kept draining and would not heal. Three weeks ago they went in and removed the hard ball (granuoloma) that had formed from a stitch that didn’t dissolve. Last week she had her stitches removed. But today the incision has opened up and she gas a marble-sized hole. Please pray that her frustration will lessen and they can finally get this spot above her belly button to heal. She is teaching online from home and is out of sick time to get this problem resolved.
Chelsea Pickens: I can focus myself this week and for all the people without power, that they are safe during all these storms.
