Discipleship Prayer Request March 21, 2015

I apologize for no prayer request last week or notice of no prayer request.

Dixon's classes on Wednesday 03/11 were cancelled do to a personal family matter related to my son. One of the most vital things I learned when first being called to ministry; family before ministry.

Sheridan's  Friday classes 03/13 were cancelled do to my being ill.

I ask you to make note of Michael S.'s Sheridan afternoon he came to me at the start of class to share his father is in hospice and does not know the Lord. Michael's out date is scheduled for 06/10/2015. Michael is greatly concerned that his father is not saved and wants to share the Gospel with his dying father. Please pray that IDOC will grant Michael and early release and or that the Lord will keep Michael's father from passing until he is released.

To Him be the glory

Michael S. - I want to be effective in helping my children Matthew (21) Jessica (18) become Christians when I get released. My son Matthew and daughter grudgingly have gone to church and receive the Catholic sacraments of first holy Communion and confirmation however they are not spiritual since their mother, Tammy who I divorced in the year 2000, does not believe in religiosity, she has not been as good at encouraging spirituality as I would prefer. My ideal world would be to have my ex-wife and both my children find Jesus. My father Stanley is battling emphysema and has been dealing with deteriorating health. He has had only 15% lung capacity for about two years. I recently found out that he will be in the hospital until he passes .I have approximately 50 to 60 days left and probably miss his passing. He is a very committed Catholic church firmly spiritual with AA. He mentions his higher power as he understands him frequently. I am hopeful he will accept Jesus as Lord before he passes.


Jesus A. - Can you please pray for me, ask God to help me gain more knowledge in His word and instruction to help me be fearless in the ministry to stand up for Christ in every aspect of my life, to help me do His will not mine own, ask God to help me in each and every step of the way in my life. Can you please pray for me and my friends and family for God to watch over all our children and family to keep us safe to keep us focused in our faith in Jesus Christ, to help us always overcome temptations, to rebuke the devil, the negativity, the evil in this world. To bless us in each and every way possible in order so we can bless others. Thank you, God bless.
