Thursday Prayer Requests
.....The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Thanks to everyone who prayed from the list that I posted last Thursday. Going back over it with the men from Rapha, there was much gratitude that we would do this for them. As most of you know, this whole "Jesus-praying for folks-church thing" is new to most of them. When a prayer is answered, it catches their attention as they put the two together...
1.) Someone asked God to move on my behalf...
2.) God moved....
Hmmm! Might be something to this.
Here is this weeks list:
1.) Several of the men were friends with two people who had a motorcycle accident over the weekend. One man was killed and the other will be in the hospital for a while recovering from his injuries. There was much grieving in the camp for these two individuals and their families. Pray that God would comfort them during this dark time in the passing of a son, and the recovery of the other.
2.) J.K. requested prayer for his father-in-law. He is in the late stages of cancer, and his trips to hospital are becoming more frequent. Prayer that the father in law is ready to face what is ahead. Prayer for the family that they can be there for him.
3.) B.T. requested prayer for pancreatitis, an ongoing condition that has flared up from time to time.
4.) K.C. - has a 28 year old son who is an addict. Prayer for protection and that God would open his heart and mind to the truth.
5.) D.G. is having a medical procedure this coming Monday. D.G. was part of last weeks list, asking for healing. D.G. told me that they had felt better this past week than they have in a long time. Very grateful for the prayers.
6.) L.P.- Continued prayer for God to help focus their attention and mind so that they can get everything from the program they need to move on in their life.
7.) K. - continued prayer for daughter who has breast cancer.
The one thing I kept hearing as I moved around the camp yesterday, talking with the men, was gratitude that someone cared enough to actually pray for them. I assured them that their request were taken seriously and that prayers were going up on their behalf.
This Saturday night, we are going to be taking a look at the two types of people who were healed by Jesus.....

There is an unspoken division among people that looks at the 12 steps as being only for people in addiction. I've heard many a perso...
