Lesley Osborn
Lesley is home from hospital following recent valve replacement surgery this week.  Pray for strength and good recovery following this surgery.

Des Cole
Des gives praise that having finished chemotherapy for bowel cancer in January he has been signed me off any more treatment. Also, that the job that he started in November has been going well. He is starting a course of radiotherapy for the prostate cancer on 3rd March, which will be every working day for seven and a half weeks. Please pray that he avoids the worst side effects and the treatment will be effective in removing the cancer cells.

Barbara Hawkins
Pray for Barbara as she celebrates her 92nd birthday on Thursday 3rd March.

Baby Asher
Please continue to pray for Baby Asher in cardiac ICU at Great Ormond Street following a life threatening virus that has had seriously affected his heart function. Pray for all the medical staff treating him and for all the procedures that he undergoes on an almost daily basis.  Pray for his parents David and Helen, his sister Erin, and his grandparents Will and Jo Drever at this very difficult time.

Older Members of our Congregation
Pray for other older members of our congregation.  Pray especially for people with dementia and those who care for them.

Caroline Gilmour-White
Please pray for Caroline as she continues with mobility problems.  She is finding it increasingly difficult to attend the 9.15am service and wonders if there is anyone driving from Selly Oak/Bournville to the 6.30 p.m Sunday services who could give her a lift?  Caroline has a portable wheelchair which doesn’t take long to manage or manoeuvre. Please contact her by email or phone 07582 085732 if you can help.

Barry Blakemore
Pray for Barry who is poorly at home. Please pray for Yvonne as she cares for him and for their children Simon, Faith and Miriam.

Sid and Margaret Ball (parents of Sarah Ball)
Please continue to pray for Sarah Ball’s mother and father. Margaret is currently settled in a nursing home but would appreciate continued prayer for her health. Sid has struggled to cope with the change and is now in hospital himself. Please pray for the whole family and for wisdom for those treating Sid.
