Prayer Requests

As the body of Christ, we have the privilege of praying for each other. If you have a prayer request that you would like to have included here, please contact Tami Butts, tbutts@wcalions.org.

There are members of our community in need of our faithful prayer support.  Some of these families have set up blogs that you can follow to keep up to date, others we will do our best to update you here.   In each of these families there is much to pray for and much for which to be thankful.

  • Anderson Krieger is enjoying a few days at home before going back to the hospital next week to continue his treatment protocol.  He has a rigorous round of therapy beginning in the next few weeks that will require further hospitalization.  Please continue to pray for his body to receive the treatments and associated medicines without complications and for strength, peace and provision for Sally (1st grade teacher), Jon and Ian (10th).   You may keep up to date with immediate prayer needs by following Sally on social media.  If you have questions, please contact Julie Tomlin, ourblessedhome6@gmail.com.
