Prayer updates for Friday, April 13, 2018

Please keep these prayer requests in mind as you come before God in prayer today:

Update:  Please pray for baby Chad, Brian and Michelle Schrotenboer’s foster son, as he was admitted to the hospital and is being treated for RSV.  We give thanks to God for the news that Chad’s lungs are clear and he is doing well.  Lord willing, Chad will only be in the hospital for a couple of days while the sickness runs its course.   Pray for God’s healing grace so that Chad’s body can fight off the sickness and be able to return home soon.

Update:  Please pray for Art Bouwkamp, Joy Morren’s father, as the biopsy results of his brain tumor showed that he has lymphoma.  Though the cancer diagnosis is discouraging, the doctors say that this type of cancer is the most treatable.  Pray for God to be with Art and his family in this time of need and for God to grant them a calm assurance as Art meets with an oncologist to determine the best course of treatment.  Pray also for the treatment plan to be effective in treating the lymphoma so that Art can make a full recovery.

We express our Christian Sympathies to Gary and Sandy MeeuwsenSteve and Karin Meeuwsen and their family in the passing of Gary’s father, Howard Meeuwsen, who went home to be with the Lord on Monday morning.  Pray for God to surround the Meeuwsen family in this sad time of loss, even as they rejoice that Howard’s faith has now become sight in the presence of his Savior.   The Funeral service will be at 11 am today, Friday, April 13, at The Chapel at Central Wesleyan Church.

Please pray for Fred Zeeff as he was in the emergency room last week being treated for intense facial pain, which the doctors believe is being caused by a painful nerve condition called trigeminal neuralgia. Pray for God to be with Fred as he waits to see a neurologist next week for further testing. Pray for God to provide Fred with relief from the pain as Fred and Edna wait for answers and a course of action for treatment.

Please pray for Ginny and Lauren Spahr as they are in Ethiopia this week visiting Kalkidan, Tim and Ginny’s adopted daughter, and hoping to finalize the adoption process. Pray for the final requirements for the VISA to be met so that Kalkidan can come home to her forever family. Most likely, the Spahrs will have to return in a few weeks to be able to bring Kalkidan home. Pray for God’s hands to be at work in this adoption process and, if possible, for it to to completed this week so that their daughter can come home with them sooner. Pray also for God to be with the Spars in this exciting time of transition in their family life.

We praise the Lord for the 65 years of marriage Ken and Ruth Knap celebrated on Monday. We give thanks for the many good years of marriage God has given to Ken and Ruth and we pray for the Lord bless them with His joy this week and in the year to come.
