Please pray for our friend, Bob Cross. He is a pilot and flies for business and pleasure. On Thursday May 20th his private plane crashed as he was on approach to the Eugene, OR airport which is his hometown.

It was a miracle that he survived and spent 13 days in the ICU. He was badly injured but his brain took the worst of it.

He spent a month in the hospital in Eugene then was transferred to Craig Hospital in Denver where his brain slowly started to heal and he made very good progress but still needed more.

Last month, mid September, he got accepted at QLI in Omaha to take more steps towards healing and gain steps toward independence.

Bob and his beautiful wife, Michelle, are strong Christians and have made a huge impact on the community of Eugene as well as the state of Oregon. They are well known and well loved and have given Christ the glory for Bob's survival!

Pleas pray that Bob would continue to make great strides in his recovery and would continue to fight this difficult battle.

Thank you and God bless,

Lisa Rodrigues

Lord, I put Leland in your hands today. I cancel every assignment of the enemy! I plead the blood of Jesus, healing & Gods protection over him. I pray for Gods divine intervention, divine justice, a positive breakthrough in his legal matter; resulting in his freedom & clearing of all charges & fees. Praying for Gods favor to place him in a mental health rehab treatment program with resources to help him fully recover, function well & work towards a productive life moving forward for Gods glory.

Please pray for financial stability. I own a small business that fortunately does fairly well though we are still catching up from being closed during covid.

My husband is a smart dear man who has unfortunately never been consistently successful. We have been able to somehow get our kids well-educated but now as we approach our 60s, we have no savings.

This weighs heavily on him, and we certainly do not need to be wealthy - just able to have consistent income to allow us to save and survive. We do not want to be a burden for our children but I am afraid we will be.

This stress has been ongoing for over 20 years, and I worry about my husband who is probably depressed but has a deep faith.

Knowing that someone prayed for us would be such a blessing.

Pray for our 21 year old grandson. He is awaiting discharge from the Navy following a new mental health diagnosis. Pray for his transition back and a new path for his life. He is very disappointed to be leaving the Navy.

I'm struggling hard! We've had some suspicion that our oldest son, was relapsing with alcohol.

The last couple weeks the light has been shown more and more. Last week his sweet wife called in tears. She had to get him from his work parking lot- nearly passed out in his vehicle. Thank God he didn’t drive. He was texting her gibberish so she knew she had to go there.

I hate addiction!!!!

He's in denial. Initially lying, making excuses- you name it. He was supposed to be speaking with a therapist, and he did send a text to the family that - he knows we all know what had happened. But, it’s not just that one event.

I'm not sure how to even pray. Admittedly, I want him to be with Jesus!

He is saved! He loves the Lord. The relationship is missing.

He's absolutely struggling with mental (brain) illness on top of alcoholism! God help him!! I’m sick of trying to help. Helicopter Mom! I send scriptures, devos, Dr. Lee Podcasts, ALL. THE. TIME! I tired of being sick and tired.

I feel horrible for his new wife - they just married in February.

We've been down this track with him early in his life- age 15/16 and onward. Then in 2018 (we thought it was rock bottom) and he completed 90 days treatment after his second dui and he lost his job at the fire department.

He's sick, but GOD can heal completely!

Please pray

I tore the meniscus in my knee in March. I had arthroscopic surgery in April that fixed the meniscus but my knee did not heal because of arthritis in my knee. I had a partial knee replacement a couple weeks ago and my knee is not healing. It is extremely swollen and painful. I have done everything my doctor and physical therapists have asked me to do with the results always making my knee worse.

Please pray for wisdom for my doctor and therapists to find the treatment that will heal my knee.

My husband, Jim, was dx with a medulloblastoma 11 years ago. He’s now 49. He got through radiation and chemo fairly well. Some short term effects, but overall faired pretty well. About five years after treatment his issues (caused primarily by radiation) became much more pronounced. He struggles with chronic fatigue, balance (falls or tips over often), cognition, personality change, inconsistent/incorrect responses and reactions to things (saying things that don’t always make sense to the situation), confusion, inability to get the words out or out correctly (sounds like slurred speech sometimes), double vision, depth perception issues, hearing loss, celiac disease. His future is unknown. I don't know how his disease will progress.

Communication is difficult. He is unable to process, sometimes even simple things. It makes conversing so frustrating for us both. His inability to remember also inhibits our ability to have meaningful or productive conversations. I have empathy for him and what he’s facing and all that he’s lost. I also struggle with patience and grace sometimes. In many ways, I've lost my spouse. Radiation killed his cancer cells, but also stole his quality of life. Adjusting expectations is so difficult. We have seven children, ages 5-19. Caring for them and all their needs, along with Jim’s, is overwhelming.

As I struggle to navigate this, I'm also doing work to improve. I'm currently looking for a support group for caregivers of brain tumor patients. Proving harder to find than I anticipated. I take pictures daily, usually of sunrises, sunsets or something in nature while I'm on my daily walk. I add a verse, quote or song lyric to my image, then text it to a long list of friends and family, send it out as a Snap and post to Insta and FB. Many people have thanked me for sending daily encouragement and hope. I've made this my goal. I search for hope daily. I want to give others hope too, help them through their hurts.

My faith is central to me. I look for God daily. I'm reading. Sharing with close friends. Attending church and listening to many other helpful messages and podcasts. It's all very helpful. None of it will change what has happened to Jim, what's in his and our future, but it is helping me shift my focus. To shift my expectations of having a spouse. I still get sad, frustrated, jealous of what others get to have, what I used to have, but I'm grounded in the hope He promises. I don't know how He will use me to help others, but I'm praying there will be a way for me to do that. I want to offer people an ear. Understanding. Empathy. My time. And I want to help them see there is always hope. One of my favorite messages I've ever heard was from a Beth Moore bible study. It was about anxiety, fear. She gave us something to think about, cling to when we found ourselves spinning out of control with negative or fearful thoughts. She said, even if (fill in the blank) happens, then God. No matter what the.... is, then God. God will always be there. There is always, always hope. Eternal hope. That is what I cling to. I try to take life one day at a time. Any more than that, it's overwhelming. Thank you for reading and praying.
