We\\'ve had a crazy few weeks!

My mom is in Iowa City this morning, the 3rd, for a procedure on her kidney. Then tomorrow, the 4th, she will be having surgery on her leg. This will be the third surgery she\\'s had on her leg since April, when she fell and shattered her femur.

Also, yesterday the 2nd, my husband\\'s Grandmother fell at her church in Dallas, Texas. She broke her hip in multiple spots. My Father in Law, Chuck, left town right away to drive down and set up a plan for what to do because she\\'s almost 102 years old.

I work at a daycare center and one of our families lost the sad last week, he was only 40. He left behind a wife and two young boys.

Just prayers for everyone please!

Prayer update for my brother Michael who has been awaiting a liver transplant as a result of sclerosing cholangitis. He has been notified to be at the hospital in Dallas at 3 am Friday morning. We had a "false alarm" just before Thanksgiving, so this call may also ultimately not result in an immediate transplant. Even if not tomorrow, though, a transplant seems imminent, and we give thanks for the answered prayers that he stay healthy enough to remain on the transplant list.

Please pray for my brother, the doctors who will perform this procedure if it does occur, for our acceptance of whatever the outcome, and for the family of the donor who are/will be grieving a loss of life to make this possible.

Sue Wilson

We are in FL and ran into a man that we saw frequently at Burger King last year. His son is severely challenged mentally and probably in his 40s. For instance, he can not really feed himself and does not walk well. His father is now caring for him alone, as his wife has passed away since we last saw them. In FL the son is on a waiting list for care aid. Currently his father (in his 70s) gets 10 hours a month of aid from Medicare. Please pray that this man and his son become known to people who can really be used by God to ease their burden. I don't know their names, but our Master does! Thanks!

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.
