Barbara Hawkins
Pray for the family and friends of Barbara Hawkins who died on Sunday 4th September in the QE hospital.  Barbara, who was 94 years, has been connected with St John’s for a long time.  Pray for her son, Chris, daughter-in-law, Jacky and grandson, Nathan.

Father of Pat Brydon
Update 6th Sept: Pat thanks us for all our prayers. Reg (aged 89) is making a good recovery following his operation last Thursday. He was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer. Please continue to pray for his continued healing, strength and energy with a personal realisation of God’s goodness and love.

Sarah and Richard Gough
Update 6th Sept: Sarah has emailed to say: “St Peter’s called today (5th Sept) to let us know that a space has become available and Isobel is to start school tomorrow!!   As today is a teacher-training day, she gets to start on the first day of school which is wonderful.  We’re really thankful to everyone at St John’s for their prayers.” Richard, Sarah, Isobel and Eleanor have recently moved back to live in Harborne but were waiting for a Yr 1 school place for Isobel.

Sid Ball (father of Sarah Ball)
Update 30th August: Following a long spell in hospital, Sid was fully discharged some weeks ago.  Sid is improving but there is still some way to go.  Please continue to pray for him to receive appropriate care.  Pray for strength for Sarah and her siblings, particularly as Sarah suffers with ME.

Caroline Gilmour-White
Caroline, ex Living Stone, plans to move to a nursing home in September.  She would value prayer for energy to ‘stay the course’ and manage all the changes that need to be made before the move.

Lesley Osborn
Update 25th August: “I am being prepared for when I need dialysis. My main prayer request is that I can manage without it for as long as possible. I have been well enough to have a short holiday for which I am very thankful.”

Christiane Neumann
Christiane is grateful for our prayers.  She continues with chemotherapy, with two more treatments prior to surgery.  She would value on-going prayer for healing but says she is generally in good heart and thanks God for that.
