Christopher had his surgery for testicular cancer in November. Completed 4 rounds of chemo with little side effects. But the tumor we were hoping would shrink did not. The surgeon will remove it Friday, May 25th at noon. I understand it is located near the abdominal aorta and the renal artery. Pray for the skill of the surgeon, anestheologist, nurses, and techs involved in his care. Pray for Chris' recovery, that it will be so rapid and complete that NO ONE can assign it to anyone but God. We give Him the glory in advance believing the full recovery will come. And Jesus, please grant a mother peace.

Please pray for my friend. Her husband has informed her that he no longer wants to be married. He is seeking divorce. They've only been ,arrived less than a year, but together for 7! He is refusing counseling. He won't talk to her about it, and is not discussing it with anyone. Please pray for them both. I am afraid she will turn from God. She was just getting back into church the past couple months.

Hello fellow Spiritfm.org listeners! I am happy to let you know that God has answered your prayers and helped me pass my Finals! I graduated from college this past weekend. Also, I wanted to let you know on the day I posted my original post (prayer request) a few weeks ago, we experienced a bad snow storm that night. In the middle of the night (approximately 4 hours after I posted my prayer request to Spiritfm.org) two huge tree branches came crashing down outside my bedroom window. Instead of falling into the house &/or bedroom window they fell parallel to the house and landed between the house and partially on the garage. Each tree branch was approximately 40 feet long and weighed approximately 500 pounds each. If they would have fallen on the house, I was told the roof would have caved in. The night this happened, I had never posted a prayer request on the Spiritgm.org site before, but I believe that God knew what was about to happen that night & He had me post the prayer request so that fellow listeners would be lifting me up in prayer before the tree branches fell that night. I am so thankful for those of you who prayed for me!!! I truly feel like God saved my life and the life of my 2 year old little girl who was fast asleep in bed next to the window where the tree branch fell. Thank you again for those of you who lifted me up in prayer during my Finals. My journey to this point has not been easy. In fact, two and a half years ago, I was laid off from my job when I was 3 months pregnant. Consequently, since I was already 'showing' I was unable to get another job. The baby's father tried to force me to get an abortion since I no longer had a job, but I refused knowing that God would provide. The baby's father told me I had to chose between him or the baby...he said if I kept the baby he would leave me. Since I decided to keep the baby, he left me before the baby was born. Ultimately, I put my trust in God that He would provide for me & the baby. I reminded myself of the verse in the Bible that said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." Around the time my daughter was born, I started listening to Spiritfm...and God renewed my hope. I continued applying for jobs, but since I didn't have a college degree, I kept getting turned down. Finally, when my daughter was 14 months old, I received a job helping low income families in need. The non-profit organization I worked for helped families pay their utility bills. It was a hard job for me because my heart would break hearing people cry due to their financial circumstances. I knew what they were going through because I was facing the same financial challenges in my life, (although I was not allowed to share it with them). Since I completely understood their financial situation, it was hard for me not to cry. But I remained strong and let them know it was okay that they called us for help...that we were there to help them. My co-workers would say I was 'too nice' but I knew that God put me on the phone to listen to them when they needed someone to talk to during their time of need & ultimately help them pay their utility bills. I knew God had me there for a reason..(by the way, my ultimate goal is to be a business owner & I will never forget this experience in my life. These people are the heart and soul of our society, and many times the people that society looks down on. I was one of them, so I understood how it felt like to be embarassed about your financial situation and face things that are a result of things out of our control (such as a job loss, etc). This experience humbled me & brought me to my knees. I am thankful that God had me experience these events in my life so that He will use them for the things He has in store for my future) My 6 month contract ended at the non-profit organization & I continued studying to finish my semester to graduate from college this past week. God has helped me graduate from college with my Associate of the Arts degree, and I received a $20,000 per year scholarship (good for $40,000 total over 2 years) for being a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society. God is good and continues to amaze me!!! Looking back, I never would have thought I could afford to go back to college, yet God provided a way. Never give up hope no matter how bleak your situation is. I am proof that God can work in situations when it looks like there is no hope and when it seems like you are completely broke...He can provide a way!!! God bless all of you as you continue serving Him. Please pray that God will use my life to make a positive difference in our society as I continue my education for my Bachelors degree in Business. May God continue to bless Spiritfm.org and the D.J's who pour out their heart on the air to speak what they feel like God is placing on their hearts...their words have truly been an inspiration in my life!!! Thank you for all you do each and every day!!! ~In Christ, Amanda
