    Good and encouraging words today on the prayer post – thank you

    For those who have prayed for my daughter’s BIL with Corona V: he is not out of the woods, but today’s report IS a miracle….March 8, 2020
    “The breathing tube was removed this morning. They put him on what’s called “Bipap” and he absolutely hated it. We were able to change to a “high flow oxygen” system and he’s more content with that. That being said, he’s lost 8+ days of his life and is really surprised when we tell him what has transpired during the last week.” today is his first conscious day….
    his wife knows many are praying and always expresses her gratitude

    Em – A lovely man died last night – a neighbor who suffers from PTSD went into his garage and turned on his car – he leaves a 2 1/2 year old child and a wife who is 4 months pregnant – hopefully the VFW here will help
    as would prayers from the pray-ers here
    thank you and God keep

    Linneia – All, would you pray for me? I have a rather painful kidney stone that is not passing. I may need an intervention. Thank you!

    Nancy – uested prayer for her discernment of an unexpected opportunity to become a more public advocate for the homeless, especially the challenges that homeless women face. Sandra participates in her church’s ministry of providing meals, clothing and occasional housing opportunities. She understands the serious responsibilities of being an effective and sensitive communicator of those needs and also the benefits and temptations that a more public presence might bring into her life. Her passion is great to be obedient to God and truly serve others. I am blessed to be one of her beneficiaries!!

    Em – daughter is healing from fracture spine

    Babylon’s Dread – My ministry partner got ill manifesting mental instability. He is a stroke survivor so we returned early. He is now in hospital being tested for stroke. He is my friend of 25 years and was my co-pastor starting our church. Because of the coronavirus he’s in quarantine protocols – he has no symptoms of infection but all international returnees with illness go into these protocols. He is very confused and unstable.

    Linnea – Would appreciate prayer…lots of joint and muscle aches as well as fatigue, that have gotten worse over the last few weeks. I have a full schedule this next week and really need strength to get through. Thank you!

    Michael – I would appreciate prayer as well…life is pretty overwhelming right now.

    Em- my nurse daughter took a nasty fall, cracked a vertebrae and there is no one else on staff at the hospital that can do her job, so she’s been working through it, sometimes wearing a brace… we need prayer that with so little respite her vertebrae will heal correctly…

    BrianD – I lost my sister, and now a friend of the family (my mom)Sherrie has died of cancer. Please pray

    Captain Kevin – Appreciate prayer. I’ve been in a Fibro/fatigue/depressed funk all week.
    Also, I’m teaching piano and voice at a local studio, and need many more students to make things work.

    Linnea – Would you pray for Greg? He and my husband play tennis. He was treated for an aggressive brain cancer and thought he was clear, but it has roared back. Please pray for healing and that he and his wife come to know the Lord. Thank you!

    Xenia-+Pray for the churches of Sri Lanka

    Paige – Asking for prayer for a family issue… God knows…. and the silencing of a lying gossip who is spreading slander about me to family members and others. It’s an on going issue that is quite perplexing, and apparently demonic. Twisted, delusional and strange.

    I spoke to a trusted friend about the issue and was told “Satan has given XYZ power to turn people against you” and “XYZ has been used by Satan to destroy your former marriage and harm the church and now to divide your family”.

    This XYZ happens to also be cyber stalking me here on the Phoenix preacher.
    May God enlighten all souls to see and know Truth and walk in it by His Spirit.

    cash – depression , PTSD

    David H – I could use a prayer. I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy . Right side of my face is paralyzed. Prednisone and an antiviral.

    Michael – heart aneurysm and a bad valve, bad back and neck issues.

    Captain Kevin – Please pray for my oldest daughter. She is separated from her husband. This is probably the 3rd time in the 3 years they’ve been married. I’m not sure who is more at fault or if there is any abuse, so I just pray for God’s will. They are believers, I think.

    JD – Marshal whose mother told him that she doesn’t love him

    Linnea – Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.

    Michael, Rick, Joel, Dan, capt. Kevin, Owen – wand to hear from God in their prayer life

    JTK- ongoing back issue.

    David H – Aunt Ramona has Adenocarcinoma primary lung cancer.

    Victor- chronic back pain

    Linnea- sister salvation

    Paige- 4 boys to be pleasing to God

  4. Michael says:

    Thanks, Dusty!

  5. Linnea says:

    Em…so happy to hear he is recovering. Praying for him and his family.

  6. Linnea says:

    Dusty–thank you! For next week, you can take off the kidney stone (looks like it’s gall bladder, which is another issue!) and joint and muscle aches. I appreciate your faithfulness in prayer.

  7. Em says:

    Linnea and bob1, the prayer is much appreciated… the fact that he is alive (60 years old) is a miracle – even if he should not make it, his wife and children can now converse with him (he can’t understand why he can’t just get up and go home). That in itself is a blessing. His dear wife has not left his side for over 8 days now – sleeping on a cot in his room. She tested positive for the virus, but it didn’t take her down.
    So many folk here on the Phoenixpreacher are at risk – praying for all as well as dear dusty’s list
    God keep

  8. Em says:

    Post script, Linnea, don’t prolong the gall bladder issue. It can affect your pancreas also. It’s an easy laparoscopic surgery to get rid of tat pesky galll b. Been there, done that. 👍

  9. Linnea says:

    Em…what a special family, with his with so supportive. Yes, praying for our over 60 population, especially those who have chronic conditions underlying.

    Lord, I pray that you would put a hedge of protection around the saints that fellowship here and their families and friends. Help us to trust you Lord as we navigate rough waters. Lift up our countenance and give us strength, endurance, and yes, even joy. Lord, I pray the peace that only you can offer.

    Em–thanks for the advice…I’ve let it go too long–ultrasound and blood tests don’t show a problem, but other indicators, and pain, show otherwise. I’ll get in to a doc, other than the one at work, this week. Appreciate your concern.

  10. Nancy Holmes says:

    Em–I am thankful to hear the good report about your daughter’s BIL. Have you heard how the young mother with children is doing following the tragic death of her husband?

  11. Em says:

    Nancy, no i haven’t … she seems to have withdrawn from contact with neighbors – may not even be living in their house at present – that would be understandable, i guess
    thank you for your concern …. stay safe and God keep

    “Lord, I pray that you would put a hedge of protection around the saints that fellowship here and their families and friends. Help us to trust you Lord as we navigate rough waters. Lift up our countenance and give us strength, endurance, and yes, even joy. Lord, I pray the peace that only you can offer.” amen, Linnea – worth repeating

  12. Em says:

    for those who’ve prayed for my daughter’s BIL here’s tonight’s update
    “…Still not able to eat, but will have a swallow study in the next day or two to see if he can handle thin liquids or if they need to be thickened.
    He was downgraded in the care he requires-he’s no longer considered critical but considered “serious”. Is he well, no…. BUT
    unbelievable progress, thanking God for mercies and for pray-ers
