Prayer Requests

As we go through our days, please remember the keep the following WCA families in your prayers.  Also, please email Tami Butts (tbutts@wcalions.org) with updated and/or new prayer requests.  It is an honor to pray for each other.

  • Please continue to be in prayer for Mark Mills (Nathan (6th), Parker (1st) and wife, Tara Merritt) with regards to taking care of his aging parents.  Mark has returned home but both of his parents remain in the hospital in Panama.  They are waiting at this point to be able to transport them to the states for further care.  His mother has a feeding tube Mark’s father is struggling with declining health and memory problems.  Mark and Tara will then need to find some type of assisted living/memory care center for them both.   The family requests prayers for wisdom, strength and comfort during these uncertain days.
  • Please continue to keep Sabrina Garcia (Noah, 11th and Jacob, 9th) and her family in your prayers as she remains in the hospital at Emory.  There is much to be thankful for as Sabrina is in a regular room, having dialysis three times a week and getting stronger every day through her work with physical therapists.  Thank you to all in our community who are helping with meals and transportation.  We will update you here as we become aware of additional opportunities to bless this family.
  • Anderson Krieger (9th grade) and his family, as he continues his treatment for recurrent leukemia.  For the most recent updates and specific prayer needs, please follow Sally on social media.
  • Brent Weatherly and his family.  You can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.
Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission, of the family.
