Requesting prayers for my brother-in-law, Steven O'day who is having open heart surgery this morning, somewhat similar to what Pasor Jim had this fall, but with the complication of an anyerism elimination/repair. Ask that you pray for the peace of the Holy Spirit come upon Steven, a physiscian himself, who is trying to come to grips with his own faith. Pray for discernment and strength for the medical team for this 5 hour surgery. Our God is an awesome God, who hears the prayers of his failhful followers. Bless you all for the support of Steven and for my wife Mary's family, as they stand watch, pray and support Steven and his family today and the days agead in recovery.
UPDATE: Steve's surgery was completed successfully, ahead of schedule and he was taken off the ventilator last night, was awake and talking with his wife. PTL, he will now move forward with rehabilitation and recovery. Thanks to all the faithful Loudoun prayer warriors for your previous and continuing prayers as Steve moves towards full recovery. I pray that this will be an inspiration, answered prayers and the miracles that God provides through medicine and medical professionals, to move him closer to a relationship with our one, true Saviour and Living God! All glory be to God ...
Please pray for me as I seek to grow spiritually emotionally physically financially also for my children,friends and extended family...Thank you Phelps
My friend Sara from back home in Sayville, has been very sick for awhile, and it is very concerning to her and her family. Please pray for discernment and wisdom for her doctors, and a speedy and full recovery. God bless.
This seems a little backwards, but maybe it’s spot-on, who knows. My prayer today is for our church. I’ve been coming to this online prayer wall for years, and lifting up the people represented behind each story. Now I’d just like everyone who’s on here seeing these stories to please pray for the sleeping giant that is our church. Our church must repent and beg for mercy. As a whole, we are desperate for help if we are going to wake up. I wake up hours before my 2 babies and husband each day, and I know I’m not alone. MOST people wake up earlier than they’d like to. And I just have to say – I’ve said it a thousand times – those first 10 minutes are torturous. ALL I want is my bed, and everything in me is screaming “NO!” but I know I must, it’s what’s right. Same for all the people going to work each morning – those first few minutes are really horrible… and I sense that’s what our church is going through, and we could use all the help we can get. The first stages of waking up provoke a unique kind of pain, and our church is groaning, “no…” but we must wake up. Specifically, please pray for our church’s wives. I believe a lot of the change in our church will begin with wives at home, and how we view the world and (subsequently) speak to our husbands. It’s been mentioned occasionally how a wife’s “tendency” is to be snarky (or whatever) but my heart is breaking for the misuse of the power that women weild without knowing it. I hesitate to post this next to the scary medical reports, joblessness, loneliness, abuse, and wayward teenager prayer requests (to mention a few), because those appeals have always seemed so urgent. But it’s time for us to pray and repent, so please do that with me.
Please pray for my Aunt Mildred. She is in the ER now and will be having surgery in the morning for a twisted bowel. She recently went through surgery for colon cancer. Thank you for your prayers.

Request prayers for the family friends of a co-worker of mine, Brianna Quinn and family, as Brianna, a 22 year old, died from an overdose this week. I am not sure of the family's faith journey but know that they welcomed the prayers of all as they struggle with the loss of Brianna. I ask that you pray for peace and calm, and understranding at this time of grief, that only our Savior can bring. Asking for comfort for this family in their time of loss and a need for a "rock", that they may find that rock in the only Living Savior, Jesus Christ.
Please pray for a friend of our family. His name is Scott and he is only in his early 30's and has been battling with severe health problems for over a year. These problem have been so bad that he has almost died from them. Thank you for praying and God bless.

My sister, Nancy, needs healing prayers on her eye. She is experiencing flashes in one eye and eye doctor said her retina is starting to detach, which could mean blindness. They are talking surgery. Please pray God heals Nancy's eye and eyes, pray for peace and God will give the Doctor His Wisdom and Knowledge and Tools needed to save my sister's eye. She believes. Thank you for your prayers.
Thank you for your mighty prayers. My sister was told to wait 2 weeks to see if the gel will go back. She told me last night that she is concerned about her vision - she does not want to lose any of her vision. Please continue to pray. God Bless you.
