People in our fellowship who are ill but not mentioned by name in the list below.

Jinny Oh
Update on 20th Sept: Jinny asked us last week to pray for a place to come available at a primary school in Harborne for her young son, Jihu.  She emailed us on Tuesday to say:  “I received a phone call from St Peter’s on Monday morning and the receptionist said to me that I must have prayed hard and your son has had a place. Thanks to the Lord, I am happy to tell you that my son has got the school place in St Peter’s. I really learnt God’s teaching around this time. I can’t do anything with my knowledge and strategies. God will do something for me when I put my worries down on him”.

Barbara Hawkins
Pray for the family and friends of Barbara Hawkins who died on 4th September in the QE hospital.  Barbara, who was 94 years had been connected with St John’s for a long time. Her funeral is on 5th October at St John’s at 11.30am.  Pray for her son, Chris, daughter-in-law, Jacky and grandson, Nathan at this sad and difficult time.

Richard Harbour (former member of St John’s) died recently and there will be a Thanksgiving Service at St John’s on 30th September at 2pm. Pray for his wife Shirley and all the family.  (If anyone is available to help serve refreshments please contact Liz Vale)

Father of Pat Brydon
Pat thanks us for all our prayers. Reg (aged 89) is making a good recovery following his recent operation for bowel cancer. Please continue to pray for his continued healing, strength and energy with a personal realisation of God’s goodness and love.

Sid Ball (father of Sarah Ball)
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
“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.

Asher Sinclair (eleven months)
Pray for Asher and his medical team as they try to work out how to best help and care for him. Pray also for his parents David and Helen, his sister Erin, and his grandparents Will and Jo Drever. Asher is at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Parents of Andrea Mason
Please pray for Andrea’s father who has deteriorating health problems and is currently undergoing investigations. Andrea asks for prayer for both of her parents at this difficult time.
