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.

A friend named Laura in Georgia is having a difficult time with her 20 year old daughter, who has turned away from God and is in a dangerous relationship with an ungodly man. The daughter is hateful and unrepentant. This has been going on for over a year and it is taking its toll.

This is regarding Shannon Smuck from a previous prayer request. Shannon received very good news that her brain tumor had shrunk and the doctors felt the rest of the \"mass\" was scar tissue. Unfortunately, she was having back pain and with the MRI discovered it had spread to her spine. Please pray for her and her family to have the strength to handle this news and continue to look to God for comfort.

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.

My husband recently received a promotion at work which seemed like a great opportunity. Unfortunately in the short time it has brought a lot of uncertainty and stress. He worked hard and can bring a lot of positive change to the workplace if he is given the chance. Please pray that the micromanaging business partners don’t ruin his spirit that the workplace politics will end. 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. The bosses have written her up for being four minutes late, and just excluded her (and only her) from attending staff meetings. It's like she's being shunned. Please pray for this situation.

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.
