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 7/8/2020: Dave and Linda are surviving this heat and celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary. Jon is starting work next week. Please pray that all goes well. Rachel returned back home safely and finishes her schooling in August; she will be looking for work after that. Thank you for your prayers for this family and may they continue as we move into summer. Ruth

Father, may your word be open to all those who have not heard of old and an understanding and a willing heart to those who have heard and have not asked Jesus into their lives. In Jesus name amen.

Please remember new ministers, maybe in their first charge, dealing with the Pandemic. Lord, give them strength to cope with their young families and the responsibility of leading a congregation, while having to minister in a new way via Zoom. May they truly put all their trust in You and follow Your leading. May they be very conscious of Your presence.

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 7/6/2020: We were able to spend time with A this weekend. Although the test results are improving, she looks like a walking skeleton. Because your many prayers are appreciated, we are asking you to continue them, please.

Pray for my son, Calvin, that he will come out of his depression.
Update posted on 7/6/2020: We had a wonderful weekend. We had a social distance surprise party for my husband's 50th. Calvin wandered around chatting pleasantly with everyone. Later he hosted a bonfire and about 6 kids came. ( impressive for someone who feels he has no friends). Yesterday we worked in the kitchen together. Things that usually set him off were okay. Keep praying. We are making progress. He did stay home from work today, I am a bit disappointed but hope that it is a minor setback. It is also a crazy hot day to be bricklaying. Thank you for your prayers. I feel a weight being lifted.

93 8. Update on Katie posted by Olivia McMillan on 7/5/2020
Praise God. Katie has been in contact with her parents on several occasions. Her parents are moving and there are boxes belonging to Katie still at home. She says That she will come either Wednesday, 1st July or Saturday 4th. This will be the first time in her presence for 6 years. Heavenly Father, grant the meeting will take place and much good will come out of it. She is still fragile in her mental state so please Lord, guide the parents to do the right things. To you be all Glory and Praise Amen. Update posted 7/5/2020 Praise the Lord! Katie did visit and it was pleasant. She seemed very calm and happy. Her parents will be visiting her this week to deliver the rest of her boxes. Father, how we earnestly pray that full contact will soon happen. To Thee all praise and Glory. Amen

86 9. Prayer for many friends, with not getting enough sleep posted on 7/5/2020
I have many friends who can't get enough sleep at night, whatever the cause! Lord, please help us to turn off the stress of the world. Please send relief from stress and lack of finances. This, we pray together in confidence, to the Lord, Amen.

348 10. More On "Prayer for Cancer Treatments", originally posted by Anita McLennan on 5/19/2020
My dear friend Barb had another MRI on her pancreas and the tumour has grown. They plan to operate, but a time has not been set yet because of Covid-19. Please pray for a date for surgery and for a safe result. Lord please guide the surgeons hands as it is a delicate operation. Also please provide care and comfort for Barb and her husband and children. I pray for complete healing. In Jesus name I ask. Amen.
Update posted on 7/3/2020: Thank you for your prayers for my friend Barb. The specialist, after reviewing her scans and MRIs, feels that the surgery would most likely be too dangerous for her at 87 and has said that he feels the spots on her liver are not cancer and the other growth is perhaps a bubble of some kind. They will do another MRI but we ask for prayers for peace, comfort and a miracle. She is in a happy state because of no surgery and perhaps the doctor is being kind and letting her live without the worry until the Lord calls her to her heavenly home. To us he said she would probably not survive surgery. Blessings to all of you.

I will be seeing a Neurologist next week for some health issues that I have been having. I would appreciate your prayers that God will enable this physician to figure out what is going on and thus be able to do something to eliminate the pain. Thank you.
Update posted on 7/2/2020: I now have to go on the 9th for more bloodwork. Your continued prayers and the messages of support mean so much to me. You have no idea how much strength you have given me through all of this. Thank you is not enough to express how grateful I am.

133 12. Prayers for those suffering depression posted on 6/30/2020
My prayers are for all who struggle and suffer with depression, as well as for their families and friends who often feel helpless in how to help. Praise God for websites such as "Heads Up Guys" which offer understanding, resource help and sharing with others experiencing the effects of depression. In Jesus' name, we offer our thanks. Amen.
