Please pray for my 21 year old daughter, Morgan. She was diagnosed and treated for an ocular melanoma last year and has a VERY important follow up on Monday morning at the Mayo Clinic. We are praying that the doctor will be very pleased with how things look and that no further treatment will be needed. Please pray for special protection against metastatic cancer, as this is a possibility with melanoma. Morgan just graduated from college and will be married next Saturday, May 25th. May God bless this young godly couple with many, many years together on this earth. Thank you for your prayers.

Please pray for good weather and strong turnout for tomorrow's marriage rally in Downers Grove, IL. Please pray that the gospel would be preached and bring life, God would be glorified, and Rep. Sandack would defend God's design for marriage. The enemy is sending his representatives against marriage, including some 'pastors' who condone homosexuality. Please pray that the Holy Spirit would convict them, lead them to repentance and Godly shepherding.

Please pray for my wife Sandra and I. I have done something to damage our relationship. This sunday at church I was talking to a woman who my wife has some issues with. In my wife's observation I was "fawning"/"flirting" or worse. I thought I was merely speaking with her. Maybe I am naive, but I do not think I was flirting. I ask GOD to reveal to me if I was so I can confess that. But more importantly my wife has been hurt and I am grieved by this. She is so angry she claims my actions are interfering with her relationship with GOD. Please, please pray for us that I would know how to be appropriately conciliatory to her, she would find forgiveness and we would both find truth ! We are both very involved in church and so do not want this to damage that. Thank you

A dear sweet friend was recently diagnosed with a bleeding brain tumor. She is currently being treated at Memorial and is in alot of pain. They cannot seem to find any relief for her and they are not currently able to perform surgery due to the amount of bleeding on the brain. They have not been able to find out if the tumor is benign or malignant. And, she is not supposed to undergo any additional stress. Any and all prayers would be so helpful now as I remember, Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Thank you for the prayers they are so appreciated!

Please pray for my husband, Ron Smith. He is diabetic and working on getting his blood sugar back to the acceptable range. He is working very hard on this and doing everything he should. But sometimes it still drops very low.
