My husband Mike had brain surgury May 27th for a brain tumor which mestatisized from a lung tumor which we did not know he had. He is recovering very well from surgery because of all the prayers that are being said for him. His cat scan did not show up any other cancer, but will be having a pet scan tomorrow to make sure. I was given “Hope for tomorrow” from a friend and it is so comforting. I ask prayer for Mike and our family. Mike is 50. We have 5 children (4 married) and we have 3 grandchildren with another due any time. His vision has been affected by the brain tumor, but other than that, he is feeling good. We will know in a few days what treatment plan he will have. God’s love has poured out on us from all our family and friends and people we don’t even know.
Please pray for Dena Brehm who was in an accident and still is in a coma.(see caringbridge.com type in UTAH and dena)
My Mom, Denise, has recently been diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. She has had 3 chemotherapy treatments so far, and will be having a CAT scan on May 26 to see how the lymphoma is responding. Please pray that the treatments will remove all traces of cancer from her body. She is experiencing severe back pain during this time (believed to be a result of the swollen lymph nodes along her spine). This pain and the medicine keeps her from getting restful nights of sleep. Please also pray that she is able to sleep and be refreshed so she can fight this terrible disease with the help of the Lord.
Thank you and God bless,
Please pray for my 22y/o daughter. Two months ago she discovered that she had a tumor in the upper right maxilla and in the mouth. Please pray that it be benign. She is getting ready for surgery soon. It will be a rather large surgery because they will have to remove a part of the upper jaw and upper palate and I don’t know what else. Please pray that she have a successful surgery and no complication during the surgery or after-care.

Please pray for the successful completion of my Sung Rosary project, that I will secure the necessary funds, find the funds that exist that I just can’t see, and that I will not try to complete it alone. Also, please pray that when I sing the prayers, that my vocals will be transparent, showing the many blessings I have garnered from singing this rosary to our Lord and Lady. Thank you.
Please pray my depression lifts.
Please prayer for my nephew, Jay Shields. Jay will be going in for a
very dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from his spine on Wednesday
at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. They will also be removing a
cancerous spot from his lung. (There are numerous spots but they are
only taking one now and will remove the rest in a few months.
Jay is 18. He has been battling osteosarcoma for over 3 years now. God
has blessed us with so many miracles through out this journey. The
biggest one being the fact that Jay is still here when the other 5
boys w/ the same disease who started chemo at the same time as him
have all passed away.
Thanks to all of you who sent Jay cards and CDs this past year. He
really did appreciate them. Jay is a beautiful piano player and has
also been writing a few songs and poems. He has struggled w/ his
beliefs throughout this process. However, in a recent visit w/ me he
seemed to be opening himself up to God and faith.
Ryan’s second birthday is Sunday, and the family has requested prayers for him as he’s a bit under the weather…
This is from her husband. Suzanne is a fellow cantor at my church and a good friend. She’s going through stem cell replacement at UCLA:
Suzanne needs prayers – she needs them now. Right now. The last two weeks have been the toughest struggle for my beautiful wife and today it has become even rougher. Suzanne is in a lot of pain and the pain is progressing – today it hit her hands. This is what I need – please commit time for prayer right now. Ask God to relieve the pain in Suzanne’s hands and feet. Pray that the Holy Spirit surrounds each finger and passes to each cell to relieve her discomfort and begin healing these tissues. Pray that her stem cells grow rapidly to recreate her immune system. Most of all prayer for Suzanne’s spirit – her confidence is very low (she has endured day after day of this chronic pain) – pray that Suzanne feels the Hand of her God on her pressing, holding, and carrying her through this.
Next job… enlist your friends and family (forward this email on) – no need for them to know Zan. Tell them about this very cool lady and her struggle – put them on duty. Moms are good at that delegating (remember Mary at the feast of Cana – no one can deny a mom, even Christ). Ok… I know you have kept us in your hearts and before God so far… I just need a little more today. Right now. Thanks. We are blessed to be able to call up power beyond our imagination – God has surround us with you.
