Please pray for my brother Bubby who has esophageal cancer and a cystic mass on his cerebellum that he just found out a month ago. He was rushed to the hospital with pneumonia and a staph blood infection was discovered. He has recovered from pneumonia and been taken off of oxygen, which is a miracle! Now however he has been put on insulin for a new case of high blood sugar which is probably due to the steroids he’s been taking over the last month for his brain mass. Now he will not eat and is not acting right. I fear it is the brain mass swelling. Bubby is a very sweet man. He never married and now my two sisters and I are all he has as both our parents have passed. Please pray for my brother Bubby. God Bless,

We pray for revival in our hearts and churches that God would rise up sheperds that are spirit filled, speak the truth in love and manifest the gifts of the holy spirit. We pray the Lord Jesus will forgive us for our many sins and grant peace in the land, and that we will lie down and no one will make us afraid. We pray that the Lord would remove wild beasts from our land, and the sword will not pass through our country. Lord Jesus we pray that when the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and healing for all of those affected by the coronavirus. Lord in your loving kindness and tender mercies hear our prayers and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We give you glory for moving by your spirit and answering our prayers. In Jesus name Amen.
