Kathy Schroeder

Please pray for John and Donna Di Orio and in memory of their son, John Michael Di Orio. Every day is hard for them after losing John Michael to illness, and especially today, July 17th...his birthday. They ask that everyone keep his memory alive by saying his name aloud and in prayer. Thank you.

Please pray for my lovely wife Lori. She has been doing amazingly well with cancer, in no small part to everyone who has been praying for her, but a new spot has showed up that has the dr.s very concerned. They want to do whole brain radiation. Please pray for a healing miracle that the cancer gets cured, her good cells are protected, and Lori is returned to ideal health or something even better so that she can be a mother to our kids. Thank you and God bless.

Prayer Request:

Please pray for Eric McDonald. Please pray for Eric’s conversion and salvation.

“Gentle Jesus, compassionate and caring Good Shepherd, help me to follow You faithfully. Strengthen me daily with Your love, and guide me along life's paths. Keep me free from every evil, protect me from sickness and danger, and lead me to serve You with all my mind and heart and soul. Hear my needs and grant me petitions, especially these intentions important to me at this time: for the conversion and salvation of Eric McDonald. May the joy of The Lord fill his soul and the Peace of Christ fill his heart. Bless me each day with peace of mind and heart. May I experience Your saving power in my daily life, as I await the fullness of life and joy with You forever. Amen.”
