We pray for blessings

We pray for peace

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep

We pray for healing, for prosperity

We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

All the while, You hear each spoken need

Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

'Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we'd have faith to believe ~ Blessings

Dear Friends,

We have received word that Elizabeth Deal’s mother, Joyce Twombly,  fell this morning and was being transported to the hospital. Elizabeth is on her way, to be with her. Please keep the family in your prayers.



So do not fear, for I am with you;

    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you;

    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ~Isaiah 41:10

Tuesday, May 23rd . . .

You've been faithful, You've been good

All of my days

Jesus, I will cling to You

Come what may

‘Cause I know You're able

I know You can ~ Even If – Merc y Me

Dear Friends,

Please keep Veeda Beatty in prayer for her overall general  health, she will see the doctor today.

We received the following update from Ruth Higginbotham on her nephew:

Report today on Kenny was a PT wanted him to get out of bed and walk to the door and back...he walked the whole way down the hall! Kids bounce back soo fast...and, that one has had LOT of prayers being offered for him!        

And this prayer request from Dave and Sue Keppen:

                Betsy Kohlmann, (friend of  Dave and Sue Keppen) shared this on facebook...

had a biopsy last Friday 5/12 on a nodule in my lungs. I knew I had these nodules and I knew they were cancerous. The purpose of the biopsy was to find out the type of cancer so the doctors know how to treat it. It is the same type of cancer that is in my tongue.

The plan is for me to start radiation and chemo next week. I will have radiation 5 days a week and chemo 1 day a week. 4-7 weeks

My prayer is that I am able to tolerate the treatments so that I can... receive all of them.

"I can do everything through him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

"And the God of peace will be with you" Philippians 4:9

God continues to be my strength. As always I appreciate your prayers!

And these prayer requests from Thelma Castor at the Butler District Office:

                The Bobin Family:  If you are in the Pittsburgh region, you may have seen reports of a teen who was hit by a car in the beaver falls area.

               Jordan Bobin was struck by a car yesterday afternoon and his injuries were quite severe.  Surgeons were not able to save his life and he died early last evening.

Jordan attended Beaver Falls College Hill. He was the grandson of Blanche Bobin, former church  secretary and the nephew of Rev Jeff Bobin in the EM District.  He was the twin brother of Tyler and older brother of Brett.  His parents Jon and Cindy are from the Wampum area.  Jordan was to graduate from Mohawk this week. Please pray for his family.

Sunday, May 21st . . .

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of Carol. A post from Willard:


Greetings to all

It is in grief that I have to pass on the information that Carol left us (physically) at 11:30 PM Sat., May 20. She was admitted to the hospital on Sunday 5/14 (Mothers Day) with a severe case of double pnemonia, and after some valiant attempts of treatment she went from this life to the next very peacefully. I / we did not want to lose her, yet wanted to respect her wishes to not do 'extra-ordinary' medical efforts. For those who have gone through this part of life - you know what our family is now 'dealing with.' I do feel the love and support od so many and am so thankful for all. Blessings to you all.

Funeral arrangements will be shared as soon as available. 

PRAYER MINISTRY: Intentional prayer every day at 3 pm for our Bishop, The Cabinet, Our District Superintendent, Our Church, Our Pastor and Church Leaders.
