Prayers  and Concerns

(Please submit requests, updates, and praise reports to e-mail:

Mary Miller asks prayer for her sister, Ruth Casto, who fell and broke her hip.  She is 84.  She is at Ruby Memorial Hospital.  Please pray for the family, the doctors, and complete recovery.

Lift Chuck and Glenda Hollandsworth up in prayer. Chuck is in Baltimore hoping that he could have a risky procedure done as a “last ditch” effort to preserve his life. Recovery would be long-term. Glenda will be taking all of her sick time in order to care for him, with family helping. Glenda’s mom has also had some concerning test results. Pray for her as well.

Pray for Jim Walters and family.

Pray for the family of Eric Newlon. He was Alan Ayala’s brother and Graciela’s grandson.

Pray for friends of Mark Reasor’s sister, Beni and her husband Terry. They have had two deaths in the family, Beni’s mother has brain damage from a fall, Terry will be without a job as of June 6, and they have an adult son with multiple problems.

Pray for Mary Miller who had been at Ruby with nausea problems. She is now home, but exhausted physically and mentally. 05/15

Please pray for the Mentzer family who have several unspoken prayer needs. They would also like to give praise. Vickie’s mom, Jean Brown, had both cataract surgeries, and is healed. Most importantly her MRI came back showing no signs of problems with her brain. Pray because time has come to find home care for Karen. Jean is not ready to place Karen in care. The stress of caring for Karen is beginning to slow Jean down. Pray as Vickie is the medical power of attorney and is going to see what kind of help they can get. 

Pray for a woman Char Allen works with, Linda. She has been diagnosed with a slow growing type of lymphoma.  She is having tests to determine what stage it is, course of treatment, etc. It might be as advanced as stage 3 which, though slow growing, often comes back. 

Mary Lou Lilly asks prayer for Pat Johns' niece, Kay Ann Linton, who has brain cancer for the second time.  She is in Pittsburgh. 

Kelsey Pierce asks prayer for Eugene, Kelly, and Ava Adkins. Ava was born in December but not expected until March. She had intestinal and eye surgeries and she is still a patient of the NICU in Charleston. She weighed a little over 1lb. at birth, and she now weighs almost 6lbs. Prayers are her lifeline! Pray also for her aunt and uncle Janie and Rick Faulkner. Rick has been unemployed for close to 2 years now. He was offered a job for immediate hire, but he is unable to take it because he just had a knee replacement. Please pray for this or another job. 

Update:  Please continue to pray for Stephanie Rudash (WVU Student and friend of Rosella).  Results from her last scan showed "a partial response to therapy," not what they hoped & prayed for.  She will now begin a new chemo therapy, then, in about 4 to 6 weeks she will have a bone marrow transplant.  Pray this new treatment will bring healing to her body.  Pray for Stephanie as well as her doctor planning her care, and the family. 

Update from Mary Reasor:  Please continue to pray for Jennifer Smith Watson. She is now at home in remission. She is strengthening and feeling good most times.   She will have several more chemo treatments and be in the hospital, but pray that remission continues.  Pray for Sean and the children (4 under age 11).   If you’d like to send her a card, her home address is:  Jennifer Watson, 209 Carrol Sawmill Road, Morgantown, WV  26508

Please pray for the Smith family, Tammy has passed on to her heavenly home (members of St. Paul Lutheran).  Daughter Katie is a friend of Kaytlen Phares.
