Prayers

As you can see, we have designated a special place on our site for prayer requests, our testimonies of how God has answered our prayers and encouragement to each other in our Christian life. We want this to be a place for you to be uplifted and strengthened and for you to know that others share in your struggles and burdens.

We know that your prayers are effective because we feel them and they affect our lives, and so we encourage all of you to share with us and each other. What are you praying for? What would you like everyone to help you pray about? How has God answered your prayers?

    I would like to ask you to pray for our friend Jake Willis. He is 14 years old and was born with spina bifida. He has been confined to a wheel chair his entire life. He knows more about Southern Gospel Music than anyone else I know and is a GREAT person! Jake is currently at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis dealing with complications of a blood clot on his brain. Please pray for Jake and his entire family during this time!

    I am praying for Jake… Do you have any update?

    • Tim Dill says:

      He is still at Le Bonheur. He had surgery on Monday to remove the blood clot. Shawn & LeeAnn are going tonight to see them…so we should have more information later on tonight. Thanks for the prayers!

  3. Shawn Dill says:

    LeeAnn and I went to see Jake last night and he really needs our prayers. The shunts are working fine but there is a great danger for infection and the pressure level in his head is not stable. Jeff text me this morning on said he had some more seizures last night and his fever is hard to control. They are having to cover him with ice packs because the tylenol is not working and the ventalator is having problems. Please continue to pray for Jake and I’ll keep you posted when I get more info.

    Attended your concert at Macon Road & thoroughly enjoyed it. Ask for your prayers for my sister in law Barbara Prater who is facing some major back problems & considering surgery. Pray that the doctor will have the knowledge & guidance of God to take care of her properly. God bless.

      This is a text message that I received from Jake’s dad last night…”Jake is still in ICU on ventelator. He has bladder and lung infections. Drains in his brain are working well getting the blood out and he may have the other shunt surgery the first of next week. Thanks for your prayers…” Jeff

    i would like for you all to pray for me and my family as we go through tough times with my oldest daughter. a couple of months ago she went to live with her real dad and it has been hard for me to cope with. this mother’s day was real hard for me cause she never called me to tell me happy mother’s day mommy. she has told me that she didnt want to move back to harrison arkansas and that she didnt want to live with me anymore. it is hard for me to deal with it at the moment but with God’s help i will get through it but i will have to say that i still have him on my side and i still have one other daughter.
    i really enjoyed the concert i saw at red oak baptist church in harrison arkansas. you all really have lifted up my spirits. thanks again for the messages through the songs.

    • montana barnes says:

      i just wanted to say that my oldest daughter did call me late that night on mother’s day but like i said she still don’t want to live with me. also still pray for us as we continue to find jobs (husband and i) it is really hard for us to find one but like i said with God’s help we will find one.

    I first heard your group in Fairfield, Ohio at the First Church of God. I would like to know that name of that song that Pastor Elliott likes you to sing each time and then get a copy of the cd.

    I usually never ask for prayer reqests. I know that God has always been there for me and my family. In 2001 my husband was in a bad car accident. Since then we have had way more than our share of bad luck. I am so worn out and feel like I just want to give up. Now we are in a house that has problems and we just want to sell and get out. Please put us on your prayer chain and keep praying so I don’t give up.

    My best friend at work went crazy the other day and they took her to the hospital and now she is off work for awhile. I know other people have it bad but I am at the point where I just want to quit and give up.

    Thank you for listening and if you ever come back to Fairfield – I would love to hear you sing Calling on Angels…. but I would still like to know that name of that one song you sing for Pastor Elliott (such as great person) and such a great church.

    I have recently been reaching out more and more for prayers with my relationship with my husband, but these days I really want to focus on him. He has been in the Army for 5 years, one tour to Iraq, and now he is getting medically discharged. I am so worried for him, not just for what being deployed did to him, but his relationship with God. The Army life is not an easy one, especially when your never with you family, and your life is 100% to your country. He was told in basic you first serve your country, then everything comes after. He did just that. He won’t admit it, but he has lost his relationship with God. He cares more about what people think than what is right. He will be home in a few months, and I want to do everything I can to help him, but I don’t want to push him away. Please pray for him and I really need the strength to help him. I have a supportive family and church family, I am already blessed, but the more people that pray I feel like maybe David has a better chance of being saved again, before he is to far gone.

    Tim, Bridgette, Shawn & LeeAnn,
    we need your payers as well as your followers. Jimmy Lee (Ben’sister Kathy’s husband)is not doing well at all. I believe he has lost around 40lbs in 5 or 6 wks. He was in the hospital in Alma for a few days, they moved him to Waycross, Waycross has moved him to St. Vincent in Jacksonville, Fla. His kidneys shut down and they had to put him on dialysis. They are running more tests but for now his diagnosis is Vascular Intestional Polypeptide Syndrome (Pancreas cancer). We need a miracle!!
    Also Ben’s sister Janice Helton is in very bad shape. There is something wrong with her heart but what scares me is she has the symptoms Ben had when he passed. She is nauseated day & night and is so weak she can hardly stand. She has sit to cook. Please help us pray for 2 miracles this week.
    Thank you for staying our friends/family. We all Love the entire Dill family with their parents also.
    I pray also that all of you continue to be blessed and your children as well.

    love you all,
    “Lil Darling”
    Pam Lewis
