Prayer for church members (11th December 2014)

If you would like your prayer request to be included in this list please email Fran or phone The Church Office on 0121 427 4601

Frances James
Emma James reports “Good news, Frances has had the results of her MRI today [11/12/14] and the consultant seems happy with her progress. The soft tissue damage has recovered but there is still some fluid in the bone which might take time to settle completely. Thanks you for all your kind wishes and support. The prayers have been answered as much as we could have hoped.”

Reay Mackay (brother of Judith Mackay)
Judith reports “I would like to thank everyone for praying and enquiring how he is. Prayers are very much appreciated. Reay had 2 scans this week. He should have seen the oncologist next Thursday [11/12/14] but had a phone call on Friday to say the results of the scans are remarkable, the tumours have shrunk so much that they can hardly even see where they were, though there is scar tissue. He is having 2 more scans before Christmas to try and show some detail, but it seems likely that after another course of chemotherapy they will be able to operate on both liver and lungs. This is far more hopeful than anticipated so a big thank you to everyone who prayed.”


Mark and Jess Poyner
Mark and Jess give thanks for the safe arrival of baby Joshua on Thuesday 25th November. Please pray for baby Joshua who is now at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  Pray for ongoing good recovery following his bowel surgery.  Pray for wisdom for the medical team caring for him.   Pray for Mark and Jess and their families at this time.

Revd Ian Harper
“Revd Ian Harper, vicar of St John & St Peter Ladywood and Area Dean of Central Birmingham, is very ill with pneumonia. He is in the Critical/Intensive Care Unit at City Hospital and is likely to remain there for some time. He is in isolation and is not able to have any visitors at the moment. Please hold Ian, his wife Shizuko and the parish of Ladywood in your prayers.” +David
