milestone in treatment after transferring to the Duke
University Medical Center. Doctors have identified a blockage that
may explain the pain and anguish she has suffered
for so long! We earnestly pray this turn of events is her road back
to a more normal, pain-free life. Our prayers
have been for the doctors to discover the source of her issues. Pray now
that this is THE answer, and pray for the burden
of stress to be lifted from the Julia and the whole family.

have recently lost loved ones; pray for the families to persevere and keep up
their faith and strength.
The love of Jesus is so needed throughout our country right now, as many people
are angry and threatening. With politicians in disarray the whole country cries
out for strong and effective leadership.
Christians throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, are being
mercilessly slaughtered for their faith. We pray that world leaders find
solutions and take actions to stop the murderous extremists who conduct these attacks.
The Islamic-inspired attacks in Europe are deplorable and can only be alleviated
through the Love of God. Pray for resolution.
Please help us to be mindful of the vicious attack on America on September 11,
2001, and to be wary of our
adversaries from that fateful day. We pray for the souls of the innocents
who were lost on September 11, 2001. We pray for wisdom and guidance for
our national leaders and those of our allies as we combat the evil that
continues to this day.
Please pray for the on-going efforts of Young Life and Cru staff members, especially
local ones, as they work to keep our high school students focused on making wise
decisions in their lives. We are thankful for recent staffing events at
Providence Classical School.
