Please pray for Julie McKibben's dad, Buck. On Mother's Day he was rushed to the hospital and it has been determined he has a GI and brain bleed. He is stable at this time, knows each of his children's voices however they cannot be with him. Please pray for Buck's memory to become clearer and eliminate the confusion & fogginess he is struggling with.
Please also pray for his children and grandchildren as they are terribly worried and feel helpless.
There is also the chance he will no longer be able to live on the family farm which will be devastating for Buck. Please pray for clarity and peace should these decisions have to be made.

Please pray for my Grandma, Norma Knight. Hospice has been called in to care for her. She is at Luther Park Nursing Home has stopped eating and drinking due to the coronavirus. She probably only has a few days at most to live. Pray that she will be as comfortable as she can be and that we will be at peace not being able to be with her in her final hours. She also has dementia and hasn't been herself for many years so this sort of a "blessing in disguise" as my grandpa put it. My grandma has been a Christian her whole life and she will finally be at peace when she meets her Savior.
Please also pray for my dad, Todd McFadden, who on Easter Sunday had a heart attach and then a stroke. He is recovering in a rehabilitation unit at Lutheran Hospital currently and doing better and better each day. Pray for his recovery and that he can stay healthy to go home to continue his recovery.

Please pray for my brother-in-law. He is 59 years old and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Esophageal cancer last week. The cancer has spread to his stomach, liver and bones. We are positive and hopeful for his comfort and time, but we welcome prayer. Please also pray for my sister and three nephews who are caring for him in isolation due to COVID-19. We wish we could see all of them and hug them, but need to distance socially due to these concerns and his chemo regimen. Thank you.
