“Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.” – E.M. Bounds

 

It is the privilege of Covenant Church to connect with others through prayer … and so we invite you to submit requests below or simply join us in the journey of praying with and for one another. We are blessed by many who join us in prayer from many places around the world as well as many from our own communities. Let’s pray together in the hope of the rare delight that is always revealed in our time with God!

So far everything is going as well as possible and they expect to be discharging her in 3-5 days so fingers crossed that she is able to spend Thanksgiving at home. Angie

 

11/19 SMITH: Please keep my aunt Maxine in your prayers.  She was thought to have a heart attack but it turns out she has a blood clot in her lung and one in her heart.  They started her on heparin to dissolve it and they were going to break up the one in her heart.  They can’t break the one up in her heart because they found a hole and the blood clot is in the hole.  It would cause a stroke if they do anything except surgery.  So now she is being life flighted to Presby for a doctor there to do the surgery.  Please pray for her and the rest of the family.  Thank you Angie
 
11/18 ANDOLINA: I found out Monday about lab work I had done.  I was informed my fasting blood sugar level was 1 point from being considered diabetes.  It has not been the easiest news to hear and digest.  The symptoms I have been dealing with now that they have calmed down make more sense. It scares me if I were actually to be honest with myself. Gretchen
