My soul is weary with sorrow;

strengthen me according to your word.

~Psalm 119:28~

Continue to pray for the many Covid-19 patients in our area. Some have struggled for weeks. Some are weak from all the struggling. I will be so thankful when this problem is more contained and we don’t have to hear of so many friends and family members who are sick.

Continue to pray for all the staff and teachers in our area. The first weeks of school are full of changes and adjustments.

Please pray for Glenda Harrell as she continues to recover from eye surgery on her retina.

Continue to pray for Tommy Hood. His family reports he is beginning his fourth chemo and may soon have the option to return home for a week between treatments. They are most appreciative of all the prayers and support from folks by at home while they are in Houston.

Betty Taylor’s sister, Teresa, got some good reports and will now have additional testing before more chemo.

Please continue to pray for area churches during this pandemic. It’s hard to make decisions about church calendars with so many members who are ill. Pray churches will be part of the recovery process for the members.

Pray for the homebound during this time. Let’s not let them be forgotten just because we don’t see them.

I challenge you to do something helpful for some homebound people before the end of this week. They will receive a blessing. You will too!
