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.

  • Please pray for the Thaxton family as Hollie’s mom passed away this weekend in South Georgia. The funeral will be later this week so please pray for the family and Allie (2nd) and Fletcher (8th) during this time.
  • Anderson Krieger is hopefully going to be 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 his desire and ability to eat.  Anderson has lost significant weight and everyone wants to stop this trend and see him begin to gain.  Also, please lift up Sally (1st grade teacher), Jon and Ian (10th) for strength, peace and provision.  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.
  • Please be in prayer for WCA Art Teacher, Jackie Kirsche, as she is undergoing treatment for slow metastatic growth in lymph nodes, pelvis, abdomen and chest.  Thank you for keeping Jackie and her family, husband Kevin, children Berkley, Sierra and Hadley (11th) before the Father.
  • For updates and specific prayer requests for the Needham family (Linley 6th), please read Susanna Needham’s blog to follow their families journey as 3 yr. old, Beck, is undergoing treatment for leukemia. For questions, or to address immediate needs, please contact Julie Tomlin (rblessedhome6@gmail.com).
  • Please be in prayer for Brent Weatherly and his family. He has started a blog where you can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.

Thank you for lifting up these members of our WCA family.

Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission, of the family.
