a–anointed with Holy Water
+a Tyson (young man) — He came to ask prayer for his brother, Timothy, who is in Afghanistan. [A carry-over from two weeks ago.]
+a Kyle (young man carrying his coat and shirt with nothing on his upper body) — “I have hyperthyroidism with hot and cold flashes (obviously in a hot flash). We prayed for healing.
+a Rose and +a Joe (drove up and parked in front of the prayer table, never seen them before) — “For good health.” [There was some heavy burden there for both of them.]
a Will [He already had a Dennis Adams cross on. “I wear it wherever I go.”] — “That I will have a good day.” We prayed for the joy of the Holy Spirit.
+Viviana (young woman) — She interrupted a cell phone conversation to get prayer.
+a Arthur and +Yolanda (pregnant girlfriend) — He confessed that he has been lying to her. He knows he needs to marry her. We prayed for repentance and forgiveness of sins.
+a Hank (older man) — He is in great financial distress.
+a Shawn (regular) — We prayed for joy and peace in the Holy Spirit.
+a Moses — “Everything: job, apt, food,…”
+a Jahlon (young man) — I have prayed for Jahlon maybe four times over the past six or seven years at the prayer table. This week he came forcefully to mind and I prayed for him during the week. As soon as he walked up to the table I called him by name and told him I had been praying for him this past week. He brought his sins to Jesus for forgiveness. I reminded him that Jesus experienced EVERY temptation that he, Jahon, was going through (though without sin). That was a comfort to him and he thanked me profusely. Prayer is such a mystery!
+a Woogie and his son +a Jahlah — I prayed that Woogie would walk in God’s ways and that Jahlah would grow into the man God wants him to be.
+a Michael (young man) — limping from bad arthritis which runs in his family. We prayed for Jesus to speak that word of healing to him.
+a Nathan (young man) — He was with Michael and reluctant to get prayer but Michael ordered him to sit down in the chair and get prayer. I prayed Nathan would be God’s man. Nathan has come to Christ Church off and on (mostly off) for several years.
+Mecca, +Yaha, +Elijaha — Prayed for them as a group for daily blessings and protection.
+Aireoona and +Antonia — Prayed for daily blessing and finances.
+Judy — alcoholic addiction
+Bruce — family and job
Ernie — “Hit and run prayer”
+William and +Joseph — They asked prayer for daily provision.
+Richi (regular) — He asked prayer for his wife Felicia who is in school at Cobleskill. It was cold in the shade where the prayer table was located and Richi invited Mark and Candy to relocate across the street where he was renovating a building so that they would be in the sun and warmer.
+Vee (young man, brother or cousin of Richi) — Prayed for birthday blessings.
