    Bryan, I am thinking of your friends and praying again. Today an older couple, friends at church, learned that one of their grandsons took his own life last night. Please pray for Bob and Mary.
    Lord, have mercy.

    Friend’s son, age 14, caught looking up how to tie a noose. Please pray for him and his family. They are taking steps, but it is hard for them to find the help they need. I need prayers they will get what they need. Sweet, sweet, boy, but Depressed.

    • Good for them that they have someone like you who can help them obtain appropriate resources.
      I was once asked by grieving parents if I could be the one to identify the body of their son. I was glad to relieve them of that painful duty. I could not have realized how painful it would be until I did it.
      Bryan, you and he and his parents have my ardent prayers.

    • If you can, please impress on the young man just how much pain he would inflict on his family. I accompanied the brother of the suicide to a support group survivors of suicides. That brought back vividly all the pain; it was so good for the brother, but so emotionally wringing, that he has not gone back. I will ask him soon about a return visit. It has been five years now, and healing is still in progress.

    • It is easy for someone at a young age to believe the pain will last forever. The pain is real but it is fiction to think that anything will last forever.
      Suicide is terrible because it devastate those who love the person. One can’t understand the pain that was so terrible in that other person’s heart.

    Please pray for Charles; he is age 70, and two months into chemo the drugs are giving him rough side effects.

    Please pray for Cindy. Her breast cancer had been successfully treated, but subsequently she was diagnosed with a rare brain infection, which revealed that the cancer has metastasized into her brain. She is almost well enough after responding to treatment for the infection so that she can begin treatment for the brain cancer.
    Lord, have mercy.

    Please say a prayer for a young couple in Jackson, Tennessee, who are mourning a baby lost to miscarriage. A prayer for them and for the child, who was born much too soon and was baptised a few moments before he died.

    Hello fellow travelers, how are you all doing? I’ve been reading the front page of the site regularly, but haven’t logged in for quite some time. SO insanely busy at school in Champaign… too busy really but it ends in Dec.

    May I ask a favor? Will you please pray for me? Moving here has proven to be dramatically more difficult that I ever imagined, emotionally. I feel very isolated. Had I known, I probably wouldn’t have done it. On top of that I just read about how graduate students have vastly elevated risks for mental health issues! Oh dear. And to think I was contemplating going…[Read more]

    I just had a cousin die. It was unexpected. It makes me sad. Life is too short at times.

    Could I ask you all to pray for a lovely young lady named Miranda? She and her mother ride at our barn. Miranda was born with Apert syndrome, where, among other challenges, the bones in the skull fuse too soon and develop abnormally. She is 18 and has already had many surgeries. She is scheduled for another surgery on Wednesday, October 10. Apparently this surgery will be very long and complex. She is scheduled to be in the hospital for six days. I know her mom is worried…she keeps talking about “making memories.” When the surgeons asked her if she wanted a nose job as part of…[Read more]

    I was watching a Scott Adams Periscope and he mentioned his stepson died of an accidental overdose. He was 18. It breaks the heart to see this. It was from Fentanyl.

    A friend is going through family difficulties. Please pray that wisdom will be given to have a good resolution.

    • It was good to find out support is being given locally and basic needs are being met during the family problems.

    Please add Trink and her husband to your prayers. She spoke of health “challenges.”

    Any updates on things?

    • I had asked for prayers for Cindy, a sister of a coworker. She is in the early part of a radiation series for brain cancer. The cancer is not real aggressive and she is not feeling bad. Things seem to be going well but we won’t know for several weeks yet. Thanks for your prayers.

    • I had asked for prayers for friends Bill and Jan, who moved out of state to live near Jan’s sister and close to an excellent clinic for Bill’s Parkinsons Disease. Their move went well and they are getting settled in. So far Bill’s symptoms are only slightly more than what anyone would expect in a man in his mid 70s, so they are doing really well, all things considered. We are looking forward to hearing their report on their first visit to a church in their new area.

    Please pray for my friend Judy who was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer about a month ago. It has spread to her liver. Her first round of chemo was last week. She is upbeat and has access to the beat at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. She really should be planning a wedding with her beautiful daughter instead of this struggle.

    • May there be peace in the storm, 9th. How are you holding up? It can hit friends hard.

    • It hit me like a sledge hammer. What truly saddens me is that we had grown apart over time…I moved away, petty annoyances at not being on the same wavelength as before, etc. All of that doesn’t matter now. Just another reminder that it’s the people in your life who are important–not the accomplishments or the stuff. Just the people.

    I am praying new prayers for the firefighters out west.

    New prayers for the firefighters out west.

  • An update: after seeing a dermatologist, he was fairly confident I had been bitten by something or exposed to a plant while hiking, and this has all been a reaction to that. Two days into the medication he prescribed, it already is no longer itching and appears to be clearing up. He also was certain the prior two doctors had both misdiagnosed the illness and misprescribed the medication I should have been taking. Appreciate the prayers and continued prayers that this will continue to clear up
