Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. (James 5:16)

Here is the current list of people needing our Heavenly Father's help ... most remain anonymous but our GOD knows who they are:

 

Young Lydia - Just been advised that Lydia has been sent back home to regain her strength and her heart rate to normalize.. Thank you all who are standing with her and her family, who really appreciate everyone's love and prayers. For those who want to know more about how she’s coping, and what to pray into, she’s actually pouring out her life thoughts on Instagram under the title: stoma_life_lydia

E - Just had an update on a very special young girl who has very recently lost her mum to cancer, has already overcome cancer already in her young life, and is now facing that battle again being diagnosed with terminal cancer! We were given the expectation that she'd be doing well to make Christmas and I'm extremely pleased to say she's still with us and, although it's still diagnosed as terminal, her tumors have shrunk! God is great!!!! She is an absolute fighter but desperately needs every prayer possible. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

My 88 year old Aunt Olga - Just been told that she's been rushed to hospital as they thought she had sepsis. Once there they found she had a mass around her colon which has now been diagnosed as diverticulitis. The problem overall is that she's not strong enough for treatment ... Peace, salvation and healing please ...

My friend Siegfried in Germany - he's asking for help. He's had to leave his wife and son back in England to help with his Mother Irmgard who at 80 has just lost her husband and is now suffering from Parkinsons. Lord, please help her to receive your Peace, Salvation and eternal Healing in your Presence ...

Graeme - Update: the op went really well, and as he's able to swallow and the pain is bearable, he was allowed home yesterday! He's really thankful for everyone's prayers, and knows they've made a real difference, and he's asked for prayer for 2 things; that when the pathology finally comes back in a few weeks time, it will show the cancer has finally gone, once and for all; and that his recovery continues to be swift and with a minimum of pain. Peace for his wife Janice, and son Stephen; as a family they know and love the Lord, but it's still a scary thing!

R - He went to the Eye Hospital yesterday for a check-up. The doctor was pleased with his progress, and it is just a case of waiting now for the gas bubble to be absorbed, and his sight to return in the next few weeks. He will be off work until he can resume normal duties!  Peace and complete healing, please ...

Shad - Just heard that Shad is now back at the care home, doing a little better, but will be having a Christmas with nil by mouth bless him. Peace, salvation and healing, please ...

Tonia - A close family member who is still bravely struggling with the effects of chemo for breast cancer and now also serious heart and lung issues. Recent update: "I’ve started yet another new treatment and I can only pray it will work. My lungs are clear now but I don’t know where I am with the cancer. I might know more after I have bloods today. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

Tracey - She's still waiting for her cataract to be removed, but in the meantime her good eye is getting better with the cream the hospital have given her. Peace and healing please ...

L - Excellent Praise Report: "Everything I wrote down in the last few days I have been speaking it over my life, it has been helping tremendously brother thank you this will not stop now I feel like I'm back. I'm not in control because God's in control, my hand is off the steering wheel. He's got this one Amen! ...

C - Who's lost all hope and he can't see any future. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

V - a beautiful lady who's struggling with terrible alcoholism. She's been clean for a few weeks but needs support. Peace, salvation, and healing, please ...

G - A close family member who's struggling with diabetes and healing to his finger because the doctor's are concerned that's it's not healing. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

My friend Ian - who's undergone some pretty severe, invasive and intense head surgery to remove a growth. Ian want us to pray for: "Firstly, that the swelling in my face continues to go down as it's still quite bad. Secondly, I seem to have developed something called Trismus which is quite unpleasant and concerning. It relates to my jaw not being able to function properly. My mouth is generally closed quite tight and I can't open it easily to eat. As an example, I can barely get something like a biscuit in between my teeth. I went to see the speech and language person after speaking to the hospital about it. I was given a jaw stretching device to try and use. This is going to be a very long, drawn out process, (months), to try and ease the muscles and scar tissue that allow my mouth to open. As you can imagine, I am pretty fed up and eating is a real chore with very limited options. I certainly won't be eating a Christmas dinner or other such goodies. (At least I won't put weight on). The device is painful to use, and after following the recommended procedure, it allows me to get something like a slice of toast between my teeth, but about an hour after using it, the mouth closes back up and is tight again. Please can people pray that God heals my jaw area so that my mouth opens freely again and functions normally. Failing a healing, that the device starts to work and I see improvement via that route. I still have no idea when I will be able to return to work but I fear it will be longer that first thought as I have a long way to go. My leg is still quite weak and I am waiting to see if I am offered any physio.” Peace, health and Grace please upon this precious family as they are all dealing with their own extremely painful individual issues ...

Emma - I believe she is recovering after her recent bad fall and is doing her best to hold on to Jesus. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

Chrissy - who has undergone some serious treatment for cancer of the oesophagus. Chrissy's sister has now arranged to come and stay with her 2 days a week and this gives her some much needed support, love and help. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

S - A close family member gave me the following update yesterday (25 Jan 2023) ... a huge THANK YOU to Everyone for their Thoughts and Prayers over the last few months? I’m so grateful they were heard and the cancer is gone…! Not sure you can put Breast Cancer is so 2022, but it’s very true! ❤️ Thank You Lord ...

Terry - Fabulous news in that Terry has now been allowed to see his grandaughter and daughter this Christmas. Please continue to pray for reconciliation with his daughter's partner who's battling alcoholism and doesn't like Terry. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

W - a beautiful lady who's already struggling with the self-recrimination of an ugly divorce, and now terrible alcoholism (and all its horrendous ramifications)! Peace, salvation and healing please ...

Rory - Treatment is going well for the thyroid cancer. Peace, salvation and continued healing please ...

Barbara - who is undergoing severe treatment for pancreatic cancer. Peace, salvation and healing please …

Mark - who's suffering the effects of long-term sexual abuse. Please pray that his relationship with Jesus strengthens and he can be healed of all past hurts ...

Damien - who at only 13 years old has had to have emergency surgery and a colostomy bag fitted due to having developed Crohn’s disease. A lot to deal with at such a young age. Peace, salvation and healing please ...

As well as quite a few others (and GOD knows who they are), who wish to remain anonymous but are really going through some yukky stuff right now ...

Brothers and Sisters, we know a LOVING GOD who answers prayer, and wants to work His Peace and Kindness THROUGH US - Love is as Love does - THANK YOU ❤️
