For your prayers –
Pastor Gerald and Ruth Kissell (retired, Carbondale, IL) welcome your prayers. Pastor Jerry was hospitalized last week for pneumonia. While he was hospitalized, a stress ulcer developed that needed aggressive treatment. At this time, Pastor Jerry remains in the intensive care unit. There is the potential for him to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility later this week.\
O God, the strength of the injured and the comfort of sufferers, mercifully accept our prayers and give to this your servant the gift of your healing power, that peril may be averted and wholeness restored. Still, in all things, we entrust ourselves to your bountiful care, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
S. John Roth
