We pray for those injured, involved, or affected by the two attacks in London, which are being treated as terrorist attacks. One of them occurred outside Parliament. At least four people are reported dead, 20 or more injured. We pray for peace, at the same time we pray for the security of each nation.
First, request for prayers for a sister in Christ, Ana Lucia, from Rio who was involved in a bus accident here in the city, on the interstate highway, between 4 and 5 am. Her femur is broken in four places. She just came out of surgery.
Second, it’s encouraging to see how the family of faith, from another city and state, are willing to help their brothers and sisters in Christ. I see it rather often here. Perhaps because the Brazilian brotherhood is smaller, or maybe it’s a cultural thing, but people respond to needs with generosity, often at great personal cost.
Our good brother John Henson was hospitalized in Nashville TN yesterday after an apparent heart attack. Let’s pray the Lord raise him up and restore his health. His daughter said on FB that they were waiting on tests and doctors to hear what the future holds.
Larry Taylor, elder with the Baker Heights congregation in Abilene TX, shared the following about four Christian girls, presumably from the congregation:
Four girls sideswiped a semi on way to visit LCU in Lubbock. Flipped car. One girl suffered broken leg and crushed foot. Another has crushed hand. Other two minor bumps and scrapes. God was looking over them. Two of the girls face several surgeries to repair damage. The others are hurting emotionally. Appreciate everyone’s prayers.
The Baker Heights congregation is a former supporter of our GoSpeak ministry. We appreciate their efforts greatly.

Updates for Warren Kenney’s continued treatment are now on a separate site. See this comment to our original post. Our way to keep it all together:
This is from a Christian mother and Bible-correspondence-course teacher whose addicted son overdosed several weeks ago. Names have been omitted for privacy’ sake, at the request of those who shared it.
Please send out an emergency prayer request to pray for our son! We found out late last night that police issued a warrant for when he overdosed in October. They told us they can charge anyone who overdoses. They took the needle for testing and said results would be back in 2 to 6 weeks, then if charging him, they would do so.
We hadn’t heard a thing for almost four months, so we thought they weren’t going to charge him. He has been doing well, going to all of his drug counselor and psychological appointments, working, staying clean and passing all drug tests. He’s been sober for 109 days! And now this! A misdemeanor and felony 5.
Please pray that he won’t despair and give up and try to overdose or hurt himself again. Help the judge see that it was a relapse and that he is really trying to get it together. Pray that our son will see that he can work this out, no matter what. That even if it takes a long time, it is better than death and that while there is life, there is hope. Continue reading
