Renée Miller, Women’s ACTS Prayer Group Ministry- Requests Prayers for the Jensen family - Passing of Kristin Jensen

Bryce Jensen(Grant's godson) just called to tell us his mom, Kristin just passed away. She was supposed to attend a videoconference with her therapist and never attended, so the therapist notified him. Bryce went to her house to check up on her as she wasn't answering the phone. Cop cars were parked in the front. She was found in the backyard sitting in a chair under the sun with her eyes closed & an empty lemonade glass on a table & her phone was charging. They will perform an autopsy to find out via a toxicology report to see if it was self-induced or from natural causes. She was suffering from depression throughout her life on & off and of course, the death of her 28 year old daughter, Gabi, last year after her battle with Breast Cancer. She had attempted suicide early last year in the midst of her daughter's illness & a mental breakdown a few years prior. I guess she just couldn't handle the pain.
Bryce shared with us that he had a good conversation with her yesterday & is thankful for that. They had a good relationship as he was mature & wise & had helped her through some rough patches. He couldn't visit her, though because one of his patients was a COVID-19 child, as he is a Pediatric ICU Nurse at UCSF Hospital.

Eli Andrade - In Hospital Fighting Coronavirus

Bill Cox just responded saying that he was sorry for forgetting to mention the name of his friend in his previous prayer request.

ELI ANDRADE is Bill's friend, who is in the hospital, fighting the Coronavirus.

Please pray for a good friend who just called me from the hospital with the Coronavirus. He is a great leader in our recovery community, a lot of you know him. He is scared and is asking for prayers, so if we will all lift him up in pray please. I mentioned to him that he read psalm 91 which is good for all of us to read. Praise God for all of y’all and your prayers. We have a great community.
Thanks.

Prayer Request from Sylvia Villanueva

I am an EEM for the 10:00 mass and would like to know what I need to do to add my baby sister on the prayer list. She was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 8, four days before my father’s 4th anniversary with our LORD. She started her chemo on May 4th and GOD willing she will be done in the fall. And if everything goes well she will be having a mastectomy. Her name is Penny Gonzalez Scheiler.
Please let me know if I have to pay for her name to be added to that list.
I have already emailed Kathy Minton that I will not be adding myself to the new schedule for EEM especially with this COVID-19. I would hate to jeopardize being there for my sister during her journey.

Urgent Prayer Request

I am writing on behalf of my sister in Christ, Paloma, who is asking for prayer for her mom, Patricia Barrera. She sent me the following text message:

"I'm requesting prayer for my mother, Patricia Barrera. She's in the ICU. She's stable but on a ventilator. She's withstanding the treatment but her prognosis is not good...No family can be with her which just makes things more difficult. Please share with prayer warriors and prayer circles and such."

Please pray for my sister in law, Elsa Rodriguez, too, who is in the ICU as well after having a seizure.

Mary, full of grace, spiritual mother to those in need, we fervently request your heavenly intercession for Patricia Barrera and Elsa Rodriguez who are ill and seek God's miraculous assistance. You truly care for the sick and offer them your compassionate support in powerful acts of healing. Stay near to Patricia and Elsa with your maternal protection. Console the families' anxious hearts and grant that our physical and emotional sufferings be a source of purification and growth for eternal life. Amen.
