My dad suffered two massive strokes earlier this year and is paralyzed and cannot speak or eat/drink. He now requires 24/7 care, which is what my sister and I are doing.

Please continue keep us in your prayers, especially for functional recovery, especially the ability to swallow so as to not aspirate on his own saliva and to take in nutrition. He is also prone to pressure sores and muscle stiffness as a result of being unable to move himself (we have to shift him every hour).

Pray for us, as his caretakers. It takes a bit of work and can feel very isolating. Pray for support and also renewed mental stamina as we struggle through this.

Pray that we will all cling to God and rest in His peace no matter what happens.

On Monday, Oct. 3 I will be having a c-section to deliver our baby. Please pray for a 'by the books' surgery and a healthy baby, as well as a smooth recovery. Also, please pray for our daughter, Elaine, to adjust well to the new changes of having a baby in the house. We are excited to meet our new daughter, and pray that we will be able to guide Elaine through this change well, as we also go through the change of one child to two.

TCBC Family,

My 86-year-old mother accidentally seriously injured her right eye on Monday (September 26th). She is currently in a hospital awaiting surgery today (28th) to save her eye.

Would you please join me in praying for "recovery of sight for the blind" (Luke 4:18) on her behalf. Please also continue your prayers for healing of vision/eyes for others in our congregation.

Thank you,

-- Steve Ross

Thank you for prayers for friend's immunocompromised daughter who was exposed to Covid. She is maintaining her medical condition and did not get Covid, which would be very life threatening to her. We are very thankful for the Lord's protection!

Hi church family! Our son, Theo (age 5), suffered a traumatic cataract in his right eye back in July. After a series of tests we discovered that the sight in the right eye is impaired and will require surgery in which an artificial lens will be placed in the eye in order for vision to be restored.

We are headed to Indianapolis on Tuesday for his surgery. While pediatric cataracts sometimes happen it isn't ideal that he will have to have an artificial lens/glasses to be able to see.

However, we are ever so grateful that this kind of option is available and his vision will be able to be restored, Lord willing!

Specific prayer requests:

1. Lord, be with the hands of the surgeon and the team that is caring for Theo. Let the surgery be routine and without complication. Praying for no adverse side effects from anesthesia.

2. Lord, be with Matt and I as we are traveling with Theo over the next several weeks (with many followups) to our Pediatric Othomologist in Indy. Praying for safe travel and peaceful spirits.

3. Lord, be with our other 3 kids (and animals) while they have varying routines since we will be gone for a couple of nights.

4. Praying for a miraculous recovery with no complications and injury. Pray that we can keep Theo still long enough for his eye to heal properly and cause no further damage! Matt and I are leaving on an anniversary trip 2.5 weeks from now so there is some anxiety about his healing while we are away.

5. Theo will need glasses at the end of this process but our big prayer is that he will only need them for reading.

Thank you for praying friends! His surgery is scheduled for 12:30 EST on Tuesday, September 13

Previously, I've asked for prayers for my sister's brain cancer; but now she is not suffering. Katy died during the night, recently. Pray for Terry Stange, her husband's comfort, and that her funeral in Maine will be a witness to her faith in Jesus. Thank you for your prayers from 13 months ago when she had her brain surgery. We have had several family trips to see them since then, and the opportunity to make more memories. God is good, yes always good!

Please pray for my friend with brain cancer - she is getting chemo treatments now and it is very difficult with side effects of nausea. Please pray for God's mercy and miraculous healing power to eliminate the cancer completely and allow her to live a long life. Pray for wisdom for me in reaching out with God's Good News to try and encourage her - and I also want to write some encouragement to her mother who is caring for her all the time.
