Mark Griffin
Pray for my brother, Dean. Dean is in hospice care and has been given 1-2 weeks. He is a believer and has been attending South Norfolk Baptist. Also, my wife, Kathy, is “bouncing back well” after her brain aneurysm.

I am a 2nd round (1st time I received Christ was a rough draft) perfected believer in Christ. I am humbled by where God has brought me. I’m growing in my faith and have a bible based knowledge of the history of Christianity to where we are now in the end times. When I started this journey I had many friends. Deep into my walk with Christ, I find myself physically walking alone. I love the Lord with a deep and abiding love that draws me to many hours of prayer and “searching the scriptures” which I love. Love, love! But I am lonely. I feel alone. God is with me and I understand He meets me where I am in my needs. I’m grateful. I also feel like an outsider among my friends and I’m not sure how to process this uncomfortable feeling. I know Paul talks about preaching the gospel while forsaking ones feelings. But I’m new at this and would like to request strength in Spirit during this phase. I’m an emotional ball of joy and cry about everything…..good tears and bad tears. Would you please pray with me that God would fill those nugget moments of just a deep sadness? I thank you so much and pray God blesses you also for your dedication.

I have a friend who i would like to submit a prayer request for.  He’s been struggling with personal issues and recently thought of committing suicide.  I’m unsure of what to do for him other than pray and stand by him.  I only hope that God reminds hi he is loved and worthy of his praise.

Prayer for Robert. He is processing the fact that he only has 5-10 years to live, if that, and he can’t do the things he wants to.  He is only 58 years old. He has owned his own HVAC company for 9 years but will need to shut it down due to his health.  His line of work is literally killing him (asbestosis).  I pray a miracle happens and have prayed for at least another 20 years with my true love.
