I am posting this for our neighbor whose 3 yr old (I think that is her age) daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia in July. Although after just a few weeks of treatment her tests show 0.000% of cancer cells, she must continue with treatments for at least 2.5 years. It has been a trying month and they have a long road ahead of them. She\'s constantly asking for prayers for her daughter and family. With my neighbor\'s permission, I have copied and posted her latest request for more prayers. Thank you in advance fellow GCLC members.

Per Amy Nesbitt: \"I know I’ve been requesting a lot of prayers for Aila and hate to be annoying but please keep her in your prayers if you would..and our family... all weekend she was running high fevers and now her temps have actually dropped and have been running extremely low; she will also be having surgery to place her port as she has been doing Ivs and meds thru a picc line, since she stopped breathing on their first attempt to place a port a month ago. She will be also receiving chemo in her spine and will be starting another round of chemo (that are likely the cause of the high fevers) tomorrow morning. So please please pray hard for her I have so much anxiety as it brings me back to the first attempt and I guess I’m even more nervous since she will be going under heavy sedation

I ask all who can to pray for my girlfriend\'s sister, Moriah Pitcher. On Wednesday, August 15, an MRI scan revealed that she has a tumor in part of her brain. Moriah is scheduled to have the tumor removed on August 20. Her neurosurgeon believes the tumor is likely benign, but this cannot be determined for sure until the tumor is removed and pathology tests are performed. I ask that you pray for peace of mind for Moriah as the surgery date approaches, as well as for God to watch over her family and friends in this difficult time.

A good friend of mine, Peggy, is battling stage 4 ovarian cancer right now. She is onto her second treatment option now. The first treatment course did not cure her as the cancer has come back and spread. Currently, she is part of a trial and is on the 4th round of the trial. Please pray for healing and a decrease in cancer cells, for her family (3 kids and husband), and for Peggy, that she would remain hopeful and faithful/trusting in her Lord despite the continued growth of cancer.

Please also pray for my brother-in-law\'s father, Rick. He recently suffered a fall resulting in a complete spinal cord injury that has paralized him from the waist down.

Updated prayer request for my brother Michael who is in need of a new liver and was placed on a transplant list this winter. However, as a result of such a diseased liver, he is caught in a cycle of struggling to fight off repeated and numerous infections, which need antibiotics to overcome, which temporarily remove him from the transplant list. So please prayer that despite the shape of his liver he is able to stay healthy enough to stay on the list and ultimately receive a new liver.

After the loss of two wives, I am in a loving relationship with Ardith Jenison for more than four years. Last Friday she got a phone call from her daughter, Terri and her husband ,Don informing her that Chris, their 21-year old son had taken his own life. He had been troubled by the aspberger syndrome which is a form of autism-a real troubled young man. The funeral will be Friday morning in Minneapolis. I had intended to attend but am unable to do so because of a nasty head cold which continues unabated. I ask that we support Ardith and Terri & Don Leick during this traumatic time through our prayers. Ardith is well acquainted with grief as she has lost a daughter and son by cancer at relatively young ages as well as her husband. Terri, her only remaining child, also had cancer but was able to beat it. So their family has experienced sorrow but they have met these adversities with a strong faith.

He worked hard and can bring a lot of positive change to the workplace if he is given the chance.

Please pray that the business leaders see him not as a threat but as someone who is there to help them and the business succeed.

Prayers for Lawson, a 24 year-old 3rd year Ft. Wayne LCMS Seminary student currently doing his vicarage in Lincoln, NE. Lawson has a history of Hodgkins Lymphoma and was told he was in remission as recently as January. On 2/18 the pastor\’s noticed that Lawson appeared jaundiced and he went to a local doctor the next day. He was immediately admitted to the University of Nebraska Buffet Cancer Center and has remained there for treatment. He is receiving blood transfusions every day and the doctors are still not sure exactly what his main problem is. Lawson is a man who knows that whatever happens is God\’s will but would appreciate prayers that the doctors would be able to treat him, that his parents would be lifted up and supported, and that he will be able to return to his work in the near future.

My coworker is being bullied by the owner of my workplace. She has six children, and occasionally is a couple of minutes late due to difficulties with them.

Prayers of thanksgiving for rays of hope in my marriage. My husband has attended worship with me and is every so slightly discussing topics of God, his Grace, and His plan with me. Lord, thank you! Keep following my husband and encourage him to be a witness of your great love, not only to his family but to all those around him. Let the frustration of this world not overwhelm him in his walk with you. Nothing is impossible with you, oh Lord.
