PRAYER REQUEST


Dear Prayer Partners,
  The following comes from Joyce Newby…
Ron, the following are both urgent requests. Both of these people need the power of prayer from those of us who are on the front line of prayer daily. I thank each of you in advance.
  The first request is for Jimmy Gautieri he has Covid virus and is very sick.
  The next is Lauren. She is fighting ongoing drop in her blood sugar. Pray it would stabilize. Her body is swollen, pray she would be free of edema. She is being cared for in a clinic by doctors round the clock.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

I’m writing to ask you to pray with me a very specific prayer.  Before I get to the prayer, here’s a little background…

Not too long ago my grandson Graham was telling me about someone he was studying about in school – George Washington Carver. I asked Graham if he knew that Carver was born in Missouri. Diamond, Missouri to be exact. As a matter of fact, there is a national monument and museum in Diamond.  In that museum are some plaques with quotes by Carver that really made an impression on me…

  “God is going to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His. No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way of doing it are revealed to me. The method is reveled to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain I would be helpless.”

  When asked about the secret of his success, Carver replied: “It is simple. It is found in the Bible, ‘In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.’ “

I am praying that God will reveal to someone who loves Jesus, (perhaps a scientist, lab technician, chemist, or doctor) a cure, vaccine, or someway to defeat the corona virus. If God could reveal to Carver over 300 different products made from a peanut, I believe He can reveal to someone how to cure this disease.

A WORD OF ENCOURAGMENT


Dear Prayer Partners,
  Cheryl and I have been praying for each of you. We are asking the Father to meet every need, calm every fear, heal every hurt, and bless you and your family with His abundant grace.
  We are praying for all of our government officials to have wisdom beyond themselves and make God honoring decisions.
  We are praying for all care providers to be safe, healthy, and have the gift of compassion and healing.
  We are praying for all military, police, firemen, EMT’s, to be safe and healthy.
__________________________________________________________________
  We have also been praying for national and world-wide revival among the church and awakening of the lost.
  Last night between the CBS national news and KCTV5 local news, Franklin Graham gave a few words of encouragement and then gave a brief explanation of “repentance” followed by how to pray and ask God for forgiveness and the need to ask Jesus to be your Savior. Franklin then offered a pray and asked people to pray with him asking for salvation. Thank God for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association! It was so refreshing to hear a positive voice amid all the “gloom and doom”.

UPDATE


Dear Prayer Partners,
  I just talked with Don Lee. He’s a little groggy but well aware of what’s going on. They did not give him a colostomy and are still trying to decide the best course of treatment.
Don said his goal is to be home long enough to provide care for his wife.

UPDATE ON DON LEE

Dear Prayer Partners,
As I am writing this Don Lee is still in recovery from his surgery this afternoon. They discovered the cancer is back and has spread to his liver. Some of the tumor has lodged in inoperable areas. After Don has recovered they will talk with him about possible treatment options but have not offered much hope.
Please pray for Don’s wife, Kathy. She is also a cancer patient and has had a bone marrow transplant. Don was her primary care giver and now the entire picture has changed. Their family has been through a lot in the past year.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
So many of you have ask about our welfare I thought it best to let you all know we are doing well. Cheryl and I are able to stay in and we are both well and healthy.
Tracy and Daniel are both able to work from home and Graham is experiencing school via the internet. They are all well and healthy.
Two verses that have given me comfort for years, and especially during these days are…
Psalms 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Luke 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
What a blessing to know that I don’t have to fear any EVIL… not because I am strong, but because the Lord is with me always and He will never leave me!
What a blessing to know He will never forget me! And if Jesus takes the time to count the hair on my head, surely He knows what my health needs are. Surely He knows what my financial needs are. Surely He knows everything about me!
Now is not a time to be selfish or inward, but be safe, pray for new ways to meet the spiritual needs of others, and reach out to them. And above all else… pray & praise!
God bless dear friends.

PRAYER REQUEST


Dear Prayer Partners,
  A little over a year we were praying for a man named Don Lee. Some of you may recall that he had stomach cancer and had to have his stomach removed. He recovered from that and has had a good year, but now having problems again.
  He recently began having abdominal pain and is going to have surgery tomorrow… possibly a colostomy, not sure yet.
  Please pray for a good result and that it might be something now very serious.

UPDATE ON DAVID DANIEL

Dear Prayer Partners,

Here’s the latest on missionary David Daniel…

Dear Brother Ron,
I am stranded because domestic flights are suspended.  The Philippine Department of Tourism is trying to get me to Manila. Yesterday at 2:00pm they called and said they had a flight today however when I checked with my travel agent back in Houston he said international flights were suspended until April 7.

Julie and I have been praying with hundreds To receive Jesus. Witnessing is very good here. Schools, construction sites, malls, ect. Since the virus is getting worse I feel we need to stay in as much as possible. Now just going to necessary places. Malls and general stores are on shutdown.

I’m very concerned about flying and going through airports. I have to go through 6 airports and fly on 5 planes to get home. I’m in a a safe place with a very nice house. With the virus I’m not sure when I can come home. Please keep me in your prayers and know I’m praying for you too. David
