Prayer 4 Schools
Our kids, teachers, administrators and school staff face many highs and lows as they return to another year of school. We feel a powerful way to kick off the year is to pray for our schools.

Prayer requests can be submitted anytime during the week by:

Please pray for my friend Kellie. She's 41 years old and has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She has 4 young children. She's a fighter, but I know this is going to be a tough battle.
Please also pray for our friend Grant. His hands are going numb and he's not able to work. He's going through a lot of testing right now to try and figure out what is wrong.

Please pray for my mom and I. Mom has been diagnosed with heart failure as of July 2018. The best we can hope for is close to normal. Prayers are needed for her to continue to push herself to be as active as she can and for her heart to continue to recover. I am in need of prayer as her primary caregiver and helper. Thanks to my church family.

My good friend Becky Anderson has cancer. Today they decided to stop chemo and send her home with Hospice care. Her liver and kidneys are failing. Becky is in her mid thirties, is married with 3 children. She has been saved by the blood of Jesus and for this I praise God. My heart and prayers are for the children ages 12, 7, and 3 (I think) and her husband. Jake, Max, Kael, and Nina are amazing people and I ask God to surround them all with His peaceful loving comforting healing arms.

Just wanted to give you an update on Tanner. As I write this Tanner is being transported to Iowa City to the peds ICU. There is a pediatric cardiologist over there that the cardiologist at Blank has been communicating with regarding the issues with Tanner’s heart. Tests have shown that the issues that Tanner has experienced was not due to a virus. They will test his heart to make sure, but it looks likely that Tanner will have to have a defibrillator installed. However still up in the air at this point. It’s nothing until it’s something . . . right????? Please keep prayers going for Tanner, as well as Amy.

Our family is in need of prayers again. My grandson, Tanner (the one with cerebral palsy) is in pediatric intensive care at Blank. He’d been battling the stomach flu for over a week, but Sunday night he really took a turn for the worse. He became unresponsive, they brought him to the ER & the trauma team went to work on him right away. They had to shock him twice to bring his heart back around, they sedated him & inserted a breathing tube to enable the breathing machine to breath for him. They admitted him to PICU, they ended up shocking him two more times after coming up to PICU. He is hooked up to more tubes & machines than I have personally witnessed, 2 IV’s, a port in his chest, an arterial line & a femoral line, the breathing tube & a stomach tube! It seems a virus attacked his heart & liver & possibly more organs but they don’t know for sure. Right now the doctors are calling him a “mystery boy.”
We won’t have some of the lab work back until Friday, so they will keep him sedated until at least Friday. And it’s also a waiting game, waiting to see when/if his organs his organs begin to function again. Pardon my babbling, but needless to say our family is in need of some prayer warriors right now.
