Prayers Please

Brothers,
I am asking for prayers for my son in law, Johnathan Bice. He was admitted to the hospital last night with cellulitis(a bacterial skin infection) in his lower leg. They have him on a couple of strong IV antibiotics. Looks like he will spend another night in the hospital. He and his family live in College Station but he is in the hospital in Tyler. Please also pray for his mom who is there with him and my daughter Julie and her girls who are still in College Station.
Thank you,

YBIC

Our ACTS Brother, Nieves Gonzalez, Has Died

Dear Prayer Warriors,

I just spoke with Nora Gonzalez, to check on the status of Nieves, for whom we have been praying, and she had asked for additional prayers.

Nora said to let everyone know that…
“Nieves, after a very long illness, passed away this afternoon, at 5:45pm, in the hospital. He had been admitted last Saturday”.

I offered my (our) condolences. As we have taken this journey with our friend and Brother In Christ…We have watched over him, and prayed for his healing. There was pain and suffering, through the years, but that is all behind Nieves, now. He is whole, again, and safe, in the arms of Jesus.
So, we mourn the passing of Nieves, and we offer our condolences to Nora, and their entire family.

Requesting Prayers for My Daughter's Surgery

I come to you requesting prayers for a positive outcome for my daughter's breast cancer surgery. Cindy will undergo surgery on Monday, May 2nd in Seattle, Washington.

I pray that Our Dear Lord will guide the surgeon's hand to excise all the damaging cancer cells to preclude a chance of recurrence. I also ask for a positive outcome with the six weeks of daily radiation treatments Cindy will need to undergo following the surgery.

As a strong ACTS Community, we know that prayer makes a difference, so I respectfully request your prayers for my daughter during this stressful time.

I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ and the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Blessings,
Marty Garcia

Prayers request

Can I request prayers for my father Ramon Torres Martinez which I’m in Puerto Rico and my father will have the following procedure tomorrow
My father is 85 years old.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure to replace a narrowed aortic valve that fails to open properly (aortic valve stenosis). In this procedure, doctors insert a catheter into the leg or chest and guide it to the heart

TAVR is still a major procedure that has risks

Please keep him and myself in prayers

Thank you 🙏
