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!

The surgeon after looking at the post-op MRI and said it looks good…they were able to remove approx 90% of the tumor. So that part was a big success. No stroke, blood clots or issues as of now.She obviously still has a long road with more treatment ahead…but the surgery was a win!

2/22 CAMPBELL: My beautiful wife and I got bad news from the oncologist. The treatments last week bought us some time, but the cancer is very aggressive and very advanced. They said 3-6 months. We’re waiting for her to be well enough to be discharged and travel back home. It’s very sad news, to be sure. Yet, I know that God is good, and I trust Him. I’m thankful that he has blessed us with time together and I pray that He will clear the way for us to make it home soon.

They give her medication to get the chemo out of her body over a weekend and then she can go home.

2/9 CAMPBELL: My beautiful wife had a bit of a setback; excess fluid in her brain and some swelling was causing some serious side-effects. She was admitted back into MSK hospital in NY.
