In North America — Pray for congregations who are struggling to build up youth programmes that will lead our youth to seek Jesus as Lord of their lives. Pray that God would raise up leaders who will attract youth to the Christian life, and help them to mature in their faith.

"Please pray for A. She is only 47 and the mother of three young daughters. For unknown reasons, at least so far, her liver is failing. She has to have paracentesis to remove the fluid from her abdomen. Please pray that the reason for the failure is found, that effective treatment may be found, and that she will not need a liver translplant."
Update posted on 5/24/2020: Good news. Because of a stringent diet and medications, the blood tests are showing improvement. Praise the Lord! Prayer works! She is still not out of the woods, so continuing prayers are appreciated.

"My son George, has become seriously depressed due to the onset of Covid 19. He cannot work because there is no music industry. He and his partner's living situation is a very small one bedroom apartment. There is help out there for his depression, but because he is depressed, he does not do anything to help himself. Please pray for him to see that he needs 1/God back in his life again, and 2/relief and healing for his depression. Pray that he can find a doctor who is taking new patients. That would be a miracle! Thank you so much for your prayers."
Update posted on 5/24/2020: Praise God! I just received two wonderful pictures of George lying in a hammock by lake Ontario. It is 17 degrees out! To me this a miracle. He looked happy. I talked to him today and he sounded great. He's got a job for 2 weeks! He sounded so positive! Truly this is an answer to our prayers! Praise God that He knows better than we do, as to what we should pray for! God has been faithful. I'm filled with gratitude for your prayers and the answer that we all received.

"My youngest daughter "V" and her family are going through a devastating time. God knows how bad a situation they are in. Please pray that help comes soon because they're barely holding on. Amen."
Update posted on 5/23/2020: Both my daughter and her husband are feeling the after- affects of the Covid-19. They feel exhausted all the time and are just not themselves. The two of them work cleaning houses but it had to be stopped when they got sick. Then the government closed the businesses in general. Money is very tight to feed their family and pay bills as it is with most people these days. They're trusting in God that He will supply all their needs according to his word. Your prayers would be most welcome. Amen.

"Dave and I are doing well. We are still adjusting to no outpatient groups and no physio for Dave. We try to get outside each day for a walk. I am thankful to have the psws coming morning and evening to help with Dave so that I have time to do errands and get groceries. Rachel and Jonathan are doing well. Rachel did really well with her past semester. She has 2 months left in her programme, supposedly for a placement, but it will be with online materials, assignments, and interaction with team members from her class. Pray for this adjustment. Jonathan was looking for work before the corona lock down. Pray that something might be possible when some of the restrictions start to be relaxed. Thank you for your prayers. Linda"
Update posted on 5/19/2020: Rachel may be discharged from the hospital later this week. Jon is still looking for work and living with us. We have concerns about Dave's headaches plus his wanting rest earlier and more often. For example: We went out for coffee out and a couple of errands. When we got back and I was getting lunch ready he suddenly put his head down and went sleep in his chair. I was able to get him into bed, but I am concerned as this is happening more often. I do appreciate your prayers for him and for wisdom for me. Linda
