My mom, Leanna Callis, was admitted 6 days ago with a racing heart. She remained there 6 days and was put on medication to prevent stroke. She will need therapy to help her breathe since fluid was building up in her lungs. She was readmitted last night for a racing heart once again. Please pray for her to be healed. She also has a movement disorder, high blood pressure, heart problems (quintuple bypass at age 59), and kidney problems. She is on a lot of medications which make her drowsy and at time incoherent. She is saved and has been a real testimony during this time. This is all happening at my sister's house in Omaha. My parents will eventually have to drive or be driven back home to Arkansas. My dad can't drive real well, so this is another concern.

His name is Jess. We will be there until at least until Aug 18th or when he is released from the hospital. The surgery will take between 8 and 12 hours. Thank You for your prays.
We are new to MBC and would appreciate prayers for our job situation. I would like to ask for prayer for God's direction in my job search and my daughter's career search. We have both been looking for work for several months and financially need to find jobs soon. Please also lift up a job interview I have this coming Friday as well as for God's continued provision during a financially difficult time,
Thank you for all your prayers, I believe God is working in my circumstances. I think the interview went well, please pray for the right decision to be made. I won't know until maybe next week.
Ann Warner *UPDATED
My husband, Mark, was cycling to work and had a heart attack (left anterior descending artery also called a widow maker heart attack) and someone found him on the bike trail in Herndon and called 911. The Herndon Fire Department arrived, he flatlined twice (once in the field and once in the CAT scan machine) they did the paddles and were able to put a stent in the artery successfully which is great. He was on life support until yesterday, but came off the ventilator and is beginning to talk although he is confused. He was without oxygen for 10 minutes while 911 came. Please pray for him to fully recover. We have a 5 year old daughter and 8 year old son. God is working miraculously in his recovery and we pray for full and miraculous healing. He took four steps with a walker today. He will have more surgery Monday.
Mark is making great progress! He is off the ventilator, awake, talking and walking with a walker. God has really performed a miracle with him. Even the nurses are calling him the miracle man. Please continue to pray for him to make a full recovery and that the fluid in his lungs would clear. Praise God for the work He is doing in Mark.
Mark is home! Praise the Lord and thank you for your prayers. The cardiologist said he has never seen anything like it. His brain is working great and he is all there even after being without oxygen for so long. It is a miracle.
Earlier this year my husband, JIm said he wasn't happy and didn't love me anymore after 10 years of marriage. He left our home in March and returned home last week. During the time of separation, my relationship with God was renewed. Over the last few months, I dedicated two hours pretty much every morning studying God's Word, as well as weekly bible study with fellow Christians, fasting and praying for my husband and for our marriage. I started back to church and increased my charity activities. More importantly, once I realized I couldn't change my husband only God can, I stopped expending my energies on fruitless efforts trying to control the outcome. I directed my mind and actions toward to developing a closer relationship with Jesus. Over the last few months, I have remained completely dependent on God and I believe God intends for His Word to be proved true. I now know God has a plan for my husband and I...this is our refining fire. We still have a long way to go but at the end I believe we will have a stronger marriage because we will have God in our marriage for the first time. My husband is different...he's kinder, more considerate, interested in what I have to say, etc. I leave scripture open, and he tells me he reads it when I am not home. Oh, how wonderful it would be for my husband and I to pray together!!! Please pray that the Lord will restore our marriage to a stronger and Christ serving marriage. At the end, I want our marriage to be an example of the Glory of God. Blessings.
From one of my dearest friends: (Emily has been dealing with this for a year and it seems to be escalating) If you would, please remember our daughter Emily and our whole family in your prayers. > > Yesterday, Emily was admitted to an Adult Mental Health Unit at Cornwall following a serious self-harm episode that occurred at our home. > > Along with Emily, prayers for my husband and other daughter are also needed, (especially since there is a critical requirement now for compassion, patience and perseverance). I fear that theirs is wearing thin. > > Please pray specifically for Emily's strength and that she will be reminded of God's GREAT GRACE, mercy, and love for her. He is with her on this path, but she is so entrenched by depression, anxiety, and the negative voices of her inner-demons, that she lacks the strength & power to turn to Him.
Hi i am asking for prayer in my relationship that has been broken: from before the start of this relationship, my girlfriend was going through very difficult times at home (which was very abusive) feeling alone she turned to God praying for someone to come into her life that would love her as she felt like an outcast at home, years later we crossed paths (as we were working together in a Job i had tried to leave for a number of years and never got another job until i met her)and I realised i was falling for her and asked God for confirmation and received it. So many blessings have been bestowed upon us since being together: - Both having new jobs - Financial blessings - The biggest obsticle being her mother accepting me and she now does But its as if the Devil is trying to block the path for us both as he knows the power of our relationship and i understand that ther is no opposition if thers is no opportunity, in our time together we have overcome so many mountains through prayer but were at a point where things are falling apart when they shudnt. I am asking for restoration in this relationship as it will be our testimony of Gods power as in Joshua 10 "its not over until you win...completely" as I cry out to God to extend my day please pray with me.
My wife is 38 weeks pregnant and so far momma and baby are healthy PTL!!! Prayer request is for continued health and strength for her as we come down the home stretch. Also I have a friend that goes to the same gym and is asking a lot of great questions and is very curious about Christianity. He has been listening to Lon's sermons online. Pray for the lord to open his heart and except Christ as savior.
