Please continue to pray for her strength to return as she settles back into a normal routine. Please also pray for her family as they work out the best care for her.

Mac Rowse
Mac writes: “The surgery to remove my bladder went ahead on 30th November. Surgery was uncomplicated and after 24hrs on ITU, I returned to the ward. On day five I was well enough to be discharged which is a tribute to God for his accelerated healing.” Please do continue to pray for Mac  who has experienced a post surgery complication which is causing him significant pain. Please also pray for Ann as she cares for him.

Brian and Christine write: “Simon’s support situation remains static as he continues to await CQC’s decision regarding registering the flat he hopes to move into that is linked with his current Care Home. Thank you however for praying. Simon’s mental health is improving bit by bit and this will give him a better foundation to manage the change when it does happen. Please continue to pray for God’s best outcome for him.”

Mark (friend of Brennan Horne)
Brennan writes: “Mark has had a kidney removed due to cancer. The other kidney is not working, so he is on dialysis. He has cancer in his lungs and no medication can be given to slow that down due to his strength of health at the moment. His world has been turned upside down in a matter of months. He is a single guy. Please pray for him and all his family.”
