“Lord, my heart is broken but You are near. My spirit is crushed, but You are my rescuer. Your Word is my hope. It revives me and comforts me, especially now. My soul faints, but you are the breath of life within me. You are my help, the One who sustains me. I am weak but You are strong. You bless those who mourn, and I trust You to bless me and my family with all that we need. You will rescue me from this dark cloud of despair because You delight in me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” ~Jennifer White

The following is an update from Kathy Landis:
The insurance company approved only the pelvic CT and not the abdominal CT for Joe. We are ok with this, but the doctor is not happy, but we will move forward. The bone scan is scheduled for Friday, 6/22/18 and we are waiting for the date for the pelvic CT and the follow up appointment with the doctor for the results and treatment plan.
My mom is still in skilled nursing for some PT to make sure she is ready to return to her apartment. It might not be until next week before she can go home. Each time she loses a little more of her independence.

Prayers are also requested for those suffering with anxiety.
Please also lift prayers for the family of Mark Decker. Mark went home to be with the Lord this morning.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ~2 Corinthians 12:9-11

Elaine Gunniers has requested prayers for Jim, a friend of her granddaughter, who had a grand mal seizure yesterday and is hospitalized. Please cover Jim in prayer.
Joe and Kathy Landis are still waiting for the insurance company to authorize the additional testing for Joe. The testing is needed to determine if the cancer is contained in the prostate or has spread so they can develop a treatment plan. The doctors have sent Joe’s entire record to the insurance company, and spent hours on the phone with the insurance company and have still not received a decision. Please pray for the insurance company to expedite their decision.
Please also pray for the family and friends of Joe Pry. He’s a friend of mine from college, and a veteran of Afghanistan, who lived in Zelienople. He committed suicide about a week ago.
"Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans." ~Proverbs 16:3
