Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

Attachment-1 (1).jpg

(H/T Hrothgar)


Of course coffee is good for you. Duh!

Drinking two to three cups of coffee a day could be linked to a longer lifespan, new research suggests.

When compared with avoiding coffee, it was also associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, the study found.


AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com. Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks unless we receive an update.

Prayer Requests:
8/15 – Cosda asks for prayers for her sister, whose regularly scheduled colonoscopy revealed a problem. The sister will be having her ascending colon removed next week. It seems to be early in the cancer stage and contained. Prayers are appreciated by the family.
9/10 Update – The lab results showed that the entirety of the cancer was removed from the colon, but 2 out of 50 lymph node tested showed signs of cancer, so chemo is next. Everybody is optimistic.

8/19 – mngiggle requested for prayers for his brother-in-law, who is in the ICU for pneumonia and possibly sepsis.
9/18 Update – The brother-in-law was released from the ICU and has been home for the a couple of weeks, and has been getting stronger again. Thank you all for your prayers!

9/6 – Jewells45 had bad news and needs prayers. Her CT scan indicated several nodes on her lungs, too many to count. It is very probable that she has lung cancer. Her husband is devastated, and she is scared to death.
10/5 Update - She is at stage 5 and has some in her bones, mostly around the spine and rub cage. Her doctor is phenomenal. He said he can’t cure her, but he can treat her and says she could live many more years. Treatment will involve chemo and immunotherapy.
10/6 Update – The PET scan of her bones was not nearly as bad as she feared. It should be manageable with radiation. She is very relieved!

9/10 – Greyman27 requests prayers for his lumbar fusion surgery on 9/15, his third surgery in 19 years to fix low back/nerve issues. He is hopeful that this turns out to be the permanent fix his surgeon believe it will be.

9/15 – SanFranpsycho asked for prayers for an immediate and speedy recovery for his cousin Phyllis, who was seriously injured in a fall this week at her assisted living center. She is almost 90 and lost her front teeth and broke her nose.

9/15 – Tonypete asks for healing prayers for Mike, the husband of a good friend. Mike fell and suffered a devastating brain injury. He is currently hospitalized and his prognosis is not good.

9/16 – Pillage Idiot requests prayers for his father. Dad has been battling severe heart disease and two different cancers for the last several years. He was recently infected with an antibiotic-resistant bacteria that put him in the ICU with multiple organs failing. The doctor said to gather the family, since this would probably be his last day. But after 3 days, his kidneys started to function, and his blood work is improving! Please help see if we can push him back to the top of the hill!

9/17 – SanFranpsycho asks for prayers for complete and immediate healing of his friend Paul, who learned he has a malignant tumor on his pancreas. Paul has been his closest friend for his entire life – since the first day of kindergarten over 50 years ago.

9/21 – A member of the Horde asked for prayers for NLUrker, who said that everything in his life is going badly.

9/21 - Fenelon Spoke asks for prayers for a church friend named Bob, who is having trouble with swollen fingers and pain. The doctors are having trouble finding the cause, and his next step is to see a neurologist. He is having difficulty with the pain and also with being inactive, so prayers for a solution and healing would be appreciated.

9/22 – DDS asked for prayers for long-time commenter Farmer, as he recently received a cancer diagnosis.

9/24 – Sua Sponte asked for prayers. His friend’s sister-in-law was murdered recently (domestic violence) and the rest of the family needs prayer. A fundraiser is available at Sua Sponte sends his thanks for those people out there who pray.

9/25 – BurtTC and his wife could use some prayers, individually and for their marriage.
10/1 Update – they have separated.

10/1 – B has been managing heart disease for 17 years, and just has been diagnosed with liver cancer. He requests prayers for himself, his wife, and anyone who has suffered a double blow like this.

10/1 – Taqyia2Me needs prayers for his mother-in-law, Addie, and his wife Nora. Addie suffered a heart attack in late July, then fell and broker her arm in August. She also suffers from increasing memory loss. Nora was with her when she fell, and blames herself. Addie was in rehab for 4-5 weeks but was discharged last Monday. I pray for improvement. Nora is completely broken by this.

10/3 – Sarah Hoyt requested prayers for CACS, RES’s beloved spouse. “…the return of her cancer went undetected, and is now quite dangerous.”

10/4 San Franpsycho asked for prayers for peace for Mrs. F., who is so upset that her dad is back in the hospital and may not recover.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com. If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks or so unless we receive an update.

Romans 8:26-27
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Be nice to one another and have a wonderful weekend. If you run with sharp objects you are on your own.
