Effectively pray for others at Echo Church!
A friend of mine, who helped me in the care of my mother and in many other areas of my life, is in need of prayer. She is a single mom with 3 children and was given a 30 day notice yesterday on the house she has been renting for several years. She needs prayers for strength, encouragement, and providence. Thank you. God is faithful.

My cousin, Shannon Walker, is rapidly declining since he went to hospice on Sunday. His mother, Dorothy, postponed her knee surgery & is with him. His brother & sister have been with him a lot too. Everyone’s hearts are breaking as Shannon’s life is slipping away. Shannon is in his 50’s.

My friend Angela sent me a message asking for prayers for her sister: Please give an extra prayer for my sister. She is in the hospital again with a brain bleed and congestive heart failure.

My cousin, Shannon Walker, has been battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and recovered reasonably well from that. For the last few months, he has been battling cancer in his gallbladder, liver, and lungs. Yesterday, the doctor informed him that there is nothing else to do except go on Hospice. Shannon is down to 119 lbs on his 5'10" frame and lives in St. Louis, MO. His mother, Dorothy Walker, lives in Elizabethtown, KY, and is scheduled for knee replacement surgery on July 17. She has been tossed about going to see him or keeping her surgery date. She can't walk very well and is at a risk of falling and breaking a hip. A doctor friend recommended that she continue with her surgery so she can get better. She has always been someone who looks after other people first. Please pray for each of them to have peace and Aunt Dorothy to recover quickly.

Addie Update: Thank you for your prayers. Fever spiked to 104 last night but is under control now. Addie has Adenovirus (common cold) but it's quite different for her because of her suppressed immune system. They will be in Salt Lake City for at least a few more days.

Our granddaughter, Addie Haight, is being admitted to Children's in Salt Lake City, UT with 101.3 degree fever...following a monthly kidney transplant clinic checkup. She isn't dehydrated so that's good, but her white blood cell count is REALLY HIGH so she is fighting a virus, we just don't know what kind. She could also have an ear infection, so it could be a lot of different things. Thank you!

I am asking prayers for Jarred Depugh. He battles alcoholism and often drinks to forget his problems when he is out with peers who sort of enable his behaviors. He battles with depression and anxiety and runs away from those that love him the most. He involves in himself in unhealthy relationships, and I am asking for the Lord to speak to Jarred and help restore his faith to what it once was. If you can pray for my friend I would appreciate it. God Bless.

My sister, Diana, is really sick. She's in the hospital in Seattle. She's been having vomiting spells this year for 2-3 days, then it takes her 2-3 days to recover from that then it starts again. She had an endoscopy and colonoscopy Friday and was admitted to the ER after that as it started another cycle of vomiting. Her blood pressure has spiked to 179/120. And her heart rate is way too fast. They think she's got colon or intestinal cancer. She also has a heart valve issue. Please pray for her and her family. Her name is Diana and her husband is Ron. I'm worried sick about her. She's miserable and can't get comfortable or regulated. I'm afraid for her life. She's at high risk of stroking right now. Thank you.

- Protection from the horrendous temptations that stem from a sex-saturated culture.
- Wisdom to know what choices are holy and what choices would be self-destructive.

First let us give the Lord thanks for the abundance of all things. Please pray that the Lord would deliver his people from evil men; that the Lord would preserve his people from violent men, who plan evil things in their heart and stir up wars continually. Pray against the spirit of anti-Christ, false witness, terrorism, leviathan, jezebel, witchcraft, hatred, and violence. Pray for world wide repentance that people would turn to God, so that he will forgive their sins. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God's will be done in the lives of the world's leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. Pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. God can turn the hearts of kings.
