♦ Prayer Requests

Philippians 4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Given the number of prayer requests that we receive, we thought it would be helpful to consolidate into one place, and have prayer requests as a header for this site.

  1. Hi D, praying for your sister’s horse, Alexa and for your sister Autumn. Please keep us posted.

  2. D, I have prayed for Alexa, and that God would comfort Autumn.

  3. Hey all. D here. I wanted to leave a prayer request for my sister’s horse Alexa. She just had a surgery done to remove a 50 pound mass from her cecum and she’s recovering, but the prognosis is looking dour for her recovery and she’s both in pain and slightly septic.

    Please pray for her, and my sister. Her name’s Autumn. She’s already lost her best friend to covid and her dog this year, losing Alexa would be devastating.

    Thanks John for your prayers! My son and Jason took off a little while ago with two dogs in tow, so I’m not envious 🙂

  5. Holly, I’m glad you got to see them.

    Tom had mentioned his online resource to me a while back, but I didn’t know when it went live.

  6. I really appreciate it, God has definitely walked through all of this with us, and we’ve gotten an awful lot accomplished. Saw Yankee, He came through AZ, so had lunch with he and Betty. They should be in Denver now.

    Also, didn’t know if you guys know that Tom Cucuzza put up secureforever.org a couple weeks back. Has an online NT commentary of his notes over the past 47 years.

  7. Holly, thanks for the updates. I have prayed for your (and Jason’s) good health and safe travel for all of you.

  8. Holly Garcia Held

    William, praying everything is minor. My heart blurping and skipping has changed drastically since I started taking magnesium and folate regularly. I take a 5 gr. folate 2-3 times a week and magnesium nightly (a tri-plex version). Look up for yourself the benefits for skips, afib, and other heart issues.

  9. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you for your prayers. Jason’s oncologist and urologist both agreed to let it be a wait and see explaining that sometimes hot spots can be generated by something else, but needed to be measured by a different scale than what the person measured it by, so neither are concerned. My oral surgery went well, and I get out the stitches on my back next week and then we’re off up north at the end of the week (my husband will be traveling with my son in a few days by car), and my daughter with me via air. Appreciate prayers for traveling mercies.

  10. William, I have prayed that your treatment will be expedited and that you will be healed.

  11. Please pray for me. I have been having some abnormal heart palpitations for the past several days that is bothersome. I have a stethoscope at home where I have been listening to my heart and I can tell that it is not beating normally.

    Please pray that I will be able to see a specialist sooner. My appointment so far is for next Tuesday 4/25.

  12. Holly, I’m praying for your friend’s husband and for your friend who is going through treatments for his cancer and for your husband’s co-workers that there will be opportunities for you to share the Gospel with them.

    It can be very hard. Me and my wife have been trying to share the good news of the Gospel with her father and the rest of her family, but they are indifferent and keep shrugging it off and are not taking us seriously. However, we are grateful that her mother and her older brother both believed and got saved before they passed.

  13. Holly, I have prayed for Wendy’s husband, the gentleman undergoing laser treatments, for your husband’s various work friends, and for you in having open doors and wisdom in sharing with any and all of them.

  14. Holly Garcia Held

    Another prayer request. My friend Wendy went to be with the Lord unexpectedly last week. She was 55. Her husband is not a believer. He did call me and we talked some, he did stop me at some point, saying he was angry at God (allowed me to say a little more there). Anyways, it was Wendy’s heart desire that Paul should come to know Him, so please pray for that.

    Also an older man that we know (just turned 79), we’re going to a birthday party tonight at his house. He is also undergoing laser treatments for throat/esophageal cancer. So, pray somehow for opportunity. I get to say some things but he changes the subject. Pray for opportunity and boldness.

    Tomorrow we go with some of my husband’s work friends for an early dinner/get together before everyone goes separate ways (we go up North). They are all very blinded. Most liberal. I’ve tried different approaches, but again, pray for opportunity. They were his friends first, but I care for them and for their destiny.

  15. Holly Garcia Held

    William, it is heck getting old for sure as far as physical issues. But then again we have the blessing of somewhat of a medical system, although Obama on to Biden have been actively working to dismantle it. So, our saving grace is we know Him.

  16. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you all. It is back, so we see the oncologist and urologist on Tuesday. We’re both pretty upbeat, we know Who holds us. We’ll try some alternative stuff too, but we’ll see what they have to say.

  17. Holly, Praying also for you. Getting older is a real pain, isn’t it? I just recently had prostate surgery and surgery to remove bladder stones. Sheeesh!!

  18. William, I have prayed for Luke and that Cindy’s surgery will be successful.

  19. Please pray for a fellow Free Grace believer named Luke whose wife Cindy has been diagnosed with a massive bladder tumor that needs to be removed as soon as possible. Please pray that the surgery will be successful. Thank you all.

  20. Holly, Praying for Jason.

  21. Holly, I have prayed for Jason and for you. In each case, that you will get accurate and consistent information and that you will be healed.

  22. Jason just had X-rays again, they spotted a new nodule. They are sending him for a petscan Tuesday. It could be the fungus (valley fever) or cancer, so appreciate prayers.

    I had a spot removed from my back, one report came back suspicious, need for an excisement, the other said melanoma, need for deep excisement. Went for the procedure, and am awaiting the second results, cut deeper and around, required several stitches and a pressure bandage. Not too concerned, except for the conflicting reports.

  23. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying Daniel, you might have someone come and inspect it, there are soil stabilization experts, or foundation stabilization depending on what you need.

  24. Daniel, I have prayed for your safety and that the condition of your house will not deteriorate and cause you to have to move.

  25. My nephew found out something wrong about the floor of the house. He fears that the house might be sinking, although slowly.

    Someone needs to inspect the foundation of the house. He’s says pieces of the house are falling apart.

    We just moved here too! Just only 10 months, and this happens?

    His door opened on its own, (No demons) and he noticed his door wouldn’t close again, it happened to the bathroom door a while back.

    He thinking that the house could be sinking, the house itself is fine, but the ground that the house is on…

    Not to mention when the construction workers are doing road work, the house slightly shakes. And we really don’t have the money to move. (And it was such a hassle to carry all that heavy stuff)

    The people who lived here before us, IF they knew and didn’t say anything, that’s negligence.

    Please pray for us.

    Fryingpan, how sad about Melissa and the \/. Seems like being a Berean applies too with things in the world, we need to remember, ‘wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove’. I am not totally against V’s, but this thing is not one, and I heard what Moderna’s chief medical officer said, and it was something to the effect that it changed a line of our DNA somewhat like a Computer programmer rewrites a whole line of code. Bragging and I knew this was a totally different story that isolating a virus and making a vaccine for it. This is not what they did, as we know they’ve never isolated it. I know so many personal stories it’s mind boggling. How did two friends end up with encephalitis of the brains, in different states, different weather, but the timing was the second thing they took. The one, the doctors confirmed it was not the virus. So it had to be a foreign protein body. The other, they have been closed lipped. If it was viral I feel they simply would have said so. But instead they are trying to say Covid did this. Pretty sad. I know blinded, heart attack, paralyzed, stroke, death. All personally people I know. May the Lord use this to turn people to Him.

  27. John, You’re right. Medical malpractice/errors is the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. according to a study done at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

  28. Fryingpan9, Thanks for the update. I’m sorry to hear of Melissa’s passing this morning, but she is now in paradise with the Lord as she believed and received the free gift of eternal life – John 5:24. I praise God as your wife was able to share the Gospel with Melissa!

    My brother in law recently died of stage 4 liver cancer which we have every reason to believe was the result of the covid jabs. He took all 3 and developed liver cancer shortly. Prior to that, he was healthy. We praise God that we were able to share the Gospel with him on his deathbed where he believed and got saved.

    The bad news is that many victim’s families have no legal recourse as then President Ronald Reagan signed 2 agreements back in 1986 which protects all the pharmaceuticals from lawsuits giving them total immunity which in turn gives them NO INCENTIVE to make their drugs and vaccines safe since $$PROFIT$$ is elevated above public health.

  29. fryingpan, thanks for the update.

    I am thankful that your wife was able to share the gospel with Melissa and that Melissa said that she believed it. It is really sad that Melissa received such poor medical treatment. Some studies suggest medical errors are so common as to be a significant cause of deaths, or at least contributor to deaths in the US.

    As with all things associated with official coviddom, the rush to “vaccinate” everyone with a pulse seems to have been done without much consideration for any adverse consequences. I do hope the truth will come to light and that justice will be served.

  30. Hi Everyone, I wanted to give the update some of you requested. There was nothing to report while the site was not being monitored, so I didn’t post before that period.

    I’ll cut to the chase. The good news is that my wife visited Melissa last Monday and shared some gospel verses with her (I forget which but I’m 99% sure they were Eph. 2:8-9 and the one in John where Jesus said whoever believed was not condemned and that those who don’t believe are condemned already.) Melissa said she agreed with those verses and assuaged my wife’s concern that they’d meet again in the hereafter.

    The bad news is that Melissa passed sometime this morning before noon our time. She was still to weak to have chemo last week and then she had a massive stroke (her 3rd since her troubles began), which makes me want to spit nails because none of her doctors “could find anything wrong” with her until she was suffering so much that they FINALLY ran the tests that showed she had stage 4 pancreatic and liver cancer. That stroke was the day after my wife shared the gospel with her. Melissa lost the ability to speak and half her body was paralyzed. (The previous 3 strokes were not nearly as bad.)

    She was put on hospice the next day, Wednesday and well, you know the rest.

    I don’t have anything to report about whether not Melissa’s husband or her daughter have understood or believed the gospel. If I did I would have told you about it.

    That is all. Well, other than to say . . . some of us suspect her problems began because of the experimental MRNA shot that her doctor(s) compelled her to get because was at high risk as she had COPD. And I can confirm that her husband seemed to share the same suspicion. My wife reported that he told Melissa something like, “Please don’t get another booster!”

    I only share that because I know some of you are probably wondering about that and because it’s been discussed her in other posts. We certainly have no proof, but I’m praying that if it was indeed from the so called vaccine, that it can be proven, and that justice will be served.

    Thanks, everyone!

  31. D, Praying for your dad. Has your dad ever tried chiropractic adjustments for his neck and spine pain? Another area that he should look into maybe is acupuncture and therapeutic massage. It sounds like your dad may have some soft tissue injury issues.

    I knew of a lady who was injured on the job and suffered chronic severe neck and back pain along with insomnia where she was put on pain medication, but to no avail. She stated that what really helped her was therapeutic massage.

  32. D, I have prayed for your father, your mother, for you, and for your entire family.

    I have prayed that your father will have relief from his chronic pain, and that God will comfort and strengthen him. I have also prayed that you and your family will have wisdom in your interactions with him, both in helping hm find constructive things to do and in helping him to avoid wasting your families financial resources.

  33. Hey all, D here. I have some prayer requests regarding my dad. He’s dealing with a lot of severe chronic pain due to a lot of issues with his spine, ankle, shoulders, sciatica and especially in his neck recently. It’s been draining him and I’m concerned it might be making him suicidal. Adding to that, it keeps him from being able from working outside on projects which is also something that’s always brought him a lot of enjoyment.

    He also has a gambling problem rounding off the above issues that’s been stressing our finances.

    He’s thankfully a believer, but he’s going through some really low valleys and tries to slink around biblical admonitions. We’ve all tried talking and arguing with him but he’s pathologically stubborn.

    Asking for prayers over my mom as well, given she manages the finances and everything this all causes her a lot of stress.

  34. Holly, thanks! Praying for you as well.

  35. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying for all my brethren’s requests here. May the God of peace comfort you all.

  36. Fryingpan9, Are Melissa’s husband and daughter believers? If not, this would be a good opportunity to also share the Gospel with them as well.

  37. Fryingpan9, Praying for Melissa. I’m sorry to hear that she has pancreatic and liver cancer. : ( My mother had liver cancer many years ago, so I can relate with the sadness that you and your wife are experiencing right now.

    My brother in law recently passed away of liver cancer, but the good news is that we were able to share the Gospel with him where he believed and is now in heaven.

    Is Melissa a believer? If not, this would be a good opportunity to share the Gospel with her. Recovery from cancer is not always a guarantee, BUT we all know that having ETERNAL LIFE is a guarantee because Jesus said so.

    John 5:24 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

  38. fryingpan, I have prayed for Melissa and her family, and for your wife and you as well.

    I am hopeful that you will get an update soon, and that you will keep us posted.

  39. Please pray for my wife’s friend and co-worker of more than eleven years named Melissa. She was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer of the pancreas and liver. She’s in her early 60s. A couple of weeks ago she was sent home from the hospital as she was too weak to undergo chemotherapy. Last week she was readmitted to the hospital but we haven’t had an update since then and we don’t know if she’s started on the chemotherapy or not. I’m very sad about this and I barely know her but it’s devastating to my wife. Melissa has a husband and a daughter.

    Thank you.

  40. John, Thank you! I would HATE and it would break many hearts deeply to see a young beautiful girl get abducted for evil purposes. Julien is only 17 and a hard worker helping and tutoring young children with their homework.

  41. William, I have prayed for Julien’s safety and that God would thwart any plans to harm her or others.

  42. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, please pray for a young high school girl named Julien who works at the after school program in my school.

    She was approached on Wednesday night after she got off work which was 2 days ago by a suspicious looking black car in her neighborhood with black tinted windows where a man in the car tried to persuade her into entering the car, but she ran off. She couldn’t see the man’s face. It’s so obvious that the man in the car is either a rapist or a sex trafficker.

    She told me today and was nervous and crying because she was afraid to go home by herself. She didn’t file a police report on that night, but today I helped her call the police department where she spoke to a police officer about the incident and they took down her name. That was all that they could do for her. She asked if a police patrol car could drive her home, but they said no. I couldn’t take her home either as I don’t own a car anymore. She took the bus instead. She lives in a not so good neighborhood.

    Julien lives with both her parents and grandmother, but her parents work late and don’t get home until 11:30 pm. I don’t know her very well, but I’ve been worried about her safety after she told me. Please pray that God’s hedge of protection by upon her in the coming days and that God will deal with that sexual predator.

    Thank you.

  43. Michael Fitzpatrick

    Come unto me all you who are weary and I will give you rest. My yoke is nit burdensome I am meek and lowly.

  44. “Diet-Calvinism”… heh, what a great term.

    Gage, I’ve known the feeling you describe.

    Praying that you will find rest in Christ and “the peace that passes all understanding”.

  45. Gage, I highly recommend that you listen to sermons by the following true preachers/teachers of God’s Word teaching the true gospel:

    Ralph Yankee Arnold
    Hank Lindstrom
    Thomas Cucuzza
    John Ricci
    Brandon Holthaus
    Robert N. Wilkin
    Zane Hodges

    The present stress and uncertainty that you have experienced is no doubt the result of 2 of the most prevalent false doctrines that have permeated mainstream Christianity like malignant cancers. We’re talking about centuries of brainwash by these 2 false doctrines where their teachings have been insistently imposed into many Bible colleges, seminaries, theology textbooks, journals, dictionaries, churches, and church constitutions.

    Many of the present day “Bible commentaries” are unfortunately written by Calvinist and Arminian authors whose teachings cannot be trusted. Their teachings will do nothing but produce anxiety, fear, confusion, contradiction, and no assurance of salvation.

  46. Gage, welcome! I am glad you found our ministry, and I have prayed for you.

    The Bible is explicitly clear on the following tenets regarding eternal life:

    1. Eternal life is received by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone
    2. Eternal life can never be lost or forfeited
    3. Assurance of eternal life can only be based on God’s promise

    Any teaching or interpretation that violates any of the above tenets should be rejected outright.

    The sheer volume of deception about how to have eternal life, the permanence of eternal life, or the proper basis for assurance of eternal life is staggering. Becoming better grounded in the truth of the gospel message is our best defense against all of it.

  47. Hello all,
    Kind of new around here. I want to pray for endurance in my walk with God. In mid-November my family and I started dealing with a number of compounding issues, and amid all of that I started experiencing doubts about my salvation. I grew up hearing a lot of teachings by J.D Greear (and by extent was exposed to a lot of John Piper, John MacArthur, etc). I never saw contradictions in the Bible as it related to science or history, as early in my walk I educated myself in topics of biology, prophecy, etc and found how strongly everything point to scripture. But during the stress of the last few months I found myself seeming to find contradictions pertaining to scripture as it relates to salvation and grace. By God’s mercy I found myself here and probably started to actually understand the Gospel for the first time. I’m recognizing that the “supposed contradictions” aren’t actually there, but rather come from over a decade of teachings that conflate salvation, works, and rewards together while dancing around a doctrine of diet-Calvinism. For the first time I’m seeing God as a loving creator, and I find myself want to seek him more. But amid all of this I worry about where I actually stand with God. Months of stress have left me feeling like a chord snapped in my chest and everything seems unraveled and uncertain.

  48. Holly Garcia Held


    Remember how the Word tells us to not worry about tomorrow? How it won’t add one ‘cubit to our measure’? Then Jesus reminded them about the Father’s care for even the lilies of the field and the grass of the field? Even the birds of the air, our Heavenly Father feeds? (Matt 6). He finished by saying, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

    Worrying about something that may never happen is just wasted time, pray instead and do what you did and ask for prayer. Remember, that spirit of fear does not come from Him (2 Tim 1:7).

    Philippians 4 reminds us to not be anxious about anything but instead “in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

    It’s tempting to play in our minds what we would do, should do, could do, but it’s better to remember what our weapons are in this war, cast down imaginations, take each thought captive and bring it into the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor 10:4-5 pp.

    Praying for you.

  49. Daniel, I have prayed that God would protect you and your family from harm, and that He would comfort you.

  50. Hey guys, i’m worried even more now. I was in the living room and as i was watching something, i see a black suv that was kinda dirty.

    I couldn’t see the people inside, but i saw the passengers phone camera faced towards our house’s direction, more than likely snapping photos of either my dad’s car, or the house.

    Needless to say, i was always worried about people causing trouble, we move to what my nephew believed that it was a safe neighborhood because the municipal building is nearby, and now THIS happens?

    Please pray that whatever their intentions are, that God diverts their attention away from here In Jesus name, Amen.

    I really don’t want to inflict bodily harm on anyone, but if push comes to shove and if they break in, they’re asking for it.

  51. Holly Garcia Held

    Aristotle, praying for your needs on the car and that it will all be worked out.

  52. Holly, thanks for the update.

    I have prayed again for everyone you mentioned and for you.

  53. Holly Garcia Held


    I think what may have been deleted was me catching you all up on my father members and the hospitalizations.

    My brother-in-law is home, will probably need some mild speech therapy.

    My cousin’s husband (with the brain infection) is also home. They did not give much hope for him to make it.

    My mom, they were going to release her to a rehab. I felt it was way too early, she still needed to be on IV antibiotics I felt. Turned out that they tested her for covid before she was to go, and she tested positive. So she had to stay for 10 more days. She never had any symptoms, but it gave her some more time to get some PT in and get stronger. She is now in a Rehab, and probably has about 2 more weeks in there. Then my niece has moved in to help with my mom when my sister has to leave to go somewhere. Anyways, Thank you all for praying.

  54. Holly, yeah. I went in and changed it just now.

  55. Holly Garcia Held

    Sorry, that was strange how my daughter’s name signed in, she used my computer, but still not sure how it went in there except some autofill or something.

  56. Holly Garcia Held

    Thanks John, and no worries on the comments, happens to me too. Things are still kind of crazy but God has been good on each step. We just continue praying for each thing.

  57. Holly, I have prayed for your husband and his family for comfort in the death of his brother, and for healing for those who are sick. I have also prayed that he would have an opportunity to share the gospel with them.

    (BTW, I noticed that one of your comments was in spam right after I hit “empty spam.” Sorry for inadvertently deleting it).

  58. Holly Garcia Held

    On another note, my husband’s family has had some death and sickness (his brother died a couple of weeks ago, we still don’t know why). And another brother and sis-in-law, in hospital with heart. All are pro V. Pray for them, and for an opportunity for my husband to share with them.

  59. William, I have prayed for you and your family, that you would be comforted in the loss of your mother in law, and that you will have opportunity to share the gospel with her family.

  60. Please pray for my family. My mother in law passed away last night from end stage kidney failure. We were able to share the gospel with her almost 2 years ago where she finally believed and got saved. Please pray for her unsaved husband, younger son, younger daughter and their families.

    We have been trying to share the gospel with them, but to no avail. However we praise God that we were able to share the gospel with her older son who recently believed and got saved on his death bed.

  61. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Daniel praying for your mom. Praying for your marriage Marcus. William praying for your son.

  62. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you all for the prayers.

    Barb – I relate, and it was all worth it. Praying for your adult son (I have 4 now that have passed 18) and so just want to encourage, keep praying and giving gentle answers when you are able.

  63. Holly, Praying for your mother, brother in law, and your cousin’s husband that they all have a full recovery. Please keep us posted.

  64. Holly, I’ve prayed for your mother, your brother in law, and your cousin’s husband – and for you.

  65. Holly Garcia Held

    Prayer request:

    My Mom went into the hospital with pneumonia. She has other underlying issues, so appreciate the prayers.

    My brother-in-law went into the hospital yesterday with a stroke. While there my sister saw our cousin, her husband (about my BIL’s age) was also in the hospital with severe infection (small world, they just moved there).

    All are believers, but obviously we still are concerned and appreciate more time if God is willing.

  66. Hi Holly, thank you for the kind comments.
    I am truly thankful for finding this website.
    It is great to have other Christians to talk to. Yes it is amazing when you spend time with God and place your trust in his word and rely on him rather than listen to the unfortunate twisting of words of others. I have learned alot after going through the most heartache. I am stronger and it was all for God’s glory.

  67. Barb, so glad the truth has set you free (Jn 8:31-32). Time in the Word tends to help as we look to Him for help. Looking forward to seeing you more around here.

    Marcus – praying for you and your wife. Stay humble, honest and close to the Lord.

    Danielglad your mother is o.k. All we can do is remember to love and honor our parents, and remember He loves them more than us.

  68. Daniel, that sounds like quite an ordeal!

    I am glad she is OK. I have prayed for all of you.

  69. I always have anxiety for my mother’s safety, due to me being a paranoid worry wart 24/7. And this incident upped it by 5×.
    Just had the scare of my life. I was in my room and i hear someone coughing, i thought it was my dad cause he’s kinda sick.
    But it was my mom who was choking, and these horrid thoughts ran through my mind. My dad came over and helped us and she spat whatever it was she had out.
    Turns out it was the roast that my dad made, but i think she may have accidentally swallowed a piece of bone. As if i wasn’t worried enough already, this happens.

  70. Marcus, I have prayed for you, your wife, and your marriage!

  71. Marcus W Compton

    Please pray for my wife Ann as she has become hard hearted towards me & is pursuing ending our marriage. I humbly own my part for our relationship issues, but I am submitting to the Lord and definitely do not want our relationship to end. I hope you all are having an awesome Christmas season. Thank you all so much.

  72. Barb, I’m so happy to hear about your delivery from the lies of Lordship “salvation.”

    I have prayed for your son!

  73. Hi I’m new at this site but absolutely am happy to see the truth about the gospel being presented. I believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as my only way to get to heaven twenty years ago. Soon after, I began to worry about my salvation due to false preaching and is what many call “if” preaching meaning if you do this or if you don’t do that then you may be saved. I read my Bible and became convinced that something was wrong with me…did I believe enough and the word repent even to hear it scared me because I knew I could not give up all my sins it was impossible for me to remember them all. Anyway this went in for a solid decade I was in tears all the time. Finally through prayer, study, and searching I finally found the truth which is believe in the Lord Jesus and thou shall be saved. Why I just believed what the Bible said… Jesus Christ promised to save me all I had to do was believe in him and what he already did for me and everyone that puts that belief in him alone. BELIEVE IN Jesus above plus nothing for heaven. Ephesians 2: 8-9 simple. God provided the Bible for a reason. I stopped listening to others that contradicted God’s word and tried to make salvation a mix of faith and works. I knew that was wrong and I was determined to share with others the truth. Lordship salvation is so dangerous and I’m sad to see how many follow it. Please keep my son in your prayers he is very angry and I worry about him day and night he is an adult. Thank you for your website. By the way the decade of constant worry I went through about my salvation melted away when I realized it is not my salvation it begins to God. God promised salvation upon the belief that one has in Jesus death for my sins and everyone’s and his burial and resurrection… God freely gives salvation… how amazing!

  74. William, I have prayed for Cindy and Thurston, that they would be healed of their covid infections, and that you and your wife will have an opportunity to share the gospel with them.

  75. Please pray for my sister in law, Cindy and her husband, Thurston who both have covid. They have been “vaccinated” 3 times including the “booster”, but now they have broken out. They would not heed our warnings at all in the beginning. Her husband went back to work.

    She’s sick at home with a fluctuating fever. Please pray that there will be an opportunity for me and my wife to share the gospel with them both. Please pray that if she doesn’t improve that she will be receptive to taking the proven meds for Covid. We as believers know what they are.

    Her doctor has prescribed “Paxlovid”. However, I did a little research and discovered that Paxlovid is another drug that is experimental and released under Emergency Use Authorization for covid patients.

  76. Holly Garcia Held

    D, I prayed for Lindsey.

    William, praying for your son. Don’t forget the soft/gentle answer. Pray when you’re speaking with someone angry (as I’m sure you do).

  77. John, Thank you. It’s been very tough lately. Thanks for your insight regarding 1 Corinthians 12:9.

  78. William, I have prayed for your son, and also for you to be encouraged.

  79. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Please pray for my son Kurt who has an anger problem. He’s been angry for days now non stop. Please pray that he let go of his anger. It has gotten to the point where I can’t talk or reason with him. I’m keeping my distance from him as I live with him. I have learned that anger is one letter short of DANGER.

    I have noticed that every time I contend for the faith and are engaged in a debate with Calvinists that my son’s anger acts up. It’s like this every time. Please pray for us. Thanks.

  80. D, good to hear that Jim has found work. Praying that he will succeed with his new work. Praying for Lindsey as well that she will come to know Christ as her Savior. Is she a teenager?

  81. D, I am thankful that Jim has found a job opportunity. I have prayed that he would flourish in it, and not be derailed by anyone.

    I have prayed for Lindsey as well.

  82. Hey all, D here.

    Just wanted to say that Jim’s found a job opportunity, asking for prayers that he’ll be fruitful in it and that he won’t be interfered with by his housemate or the townsfolk.

    I also wanted to share a prayer request for a girl named Lindsey. I don’t know if she’s saved or not, but she engages in some bad practices herself and has a bad home life, I’m unsure of the spiritual state of her parents and family but it doesn’t sound good.

    As always I try to lurk on here and add you all to my prayers. Love you, brothers and sisters.

  83. William, I have prayed for the young child and his parents.

  84. Dear brothers and sisters in the faith, Please pray for a 4 month old boy in New Zealand. Health Authorities in New Zealand are trying to take custody of a 4-month-old that needs heart surgery which will involve a blood transfusion. However, the parents don’t want their son to receive blood from someone who has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and as a result, the corporate media in New Zealand is accusing and labeling the parents as “crazy anti-vaccination conspiracy theorists.” According to an interview with the parents, the parents are not refusing medical treatment, and agree with the doctors who state that their baby needs immediate heart surgery.

    They just want to donate their own blood from their own donors where they already have more than 20 pediatric donors who have been screened and could donate their blood for boy, but the doctors are refusing based on the premise that the parent’s beliefs are “unfounded” and that vaccinated blood is perfectly “safe.”

    Isaiah 5:20-21 is an apt description of the media and the doctors who are handling this case.

    Isaiah 5:20-21 – 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

  85. Aristotle, I have prayed that Django would be healed.

  86. chas, I have prayed that your brother-in-law’s daughter will be able to navigate her financial difficulties and be able to access her father’s funds.

  87. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys. Could you please pray for my dog Django. He’s two. Always been super healthy and active. In the middle of the night he started vomiting and hasn’t stopped. Probably close to twenty times. Really want to take him to the emergency vet but I know it’s going to be a lot of money we just don’t have right now. Fasting him now so his stomach can be at ease. Hoping this is just some stomach upset.

  88. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for your kids Holly. We would let her stay with us but we are in a tiny 1.5 bed apartment with no space at all. Hopefully moving soon . Praying for your wife’s brothers daughter chas.

  89. Update #2

    This should be my final on this situation…

    Well, turns out I was given some “bad” info re the B-in-L’s removal from life support. It wasn’t last Wednesday, it was just last night. They were keeping him (his body, anyway) on life support in spite of the DNR order because he checked the “organ donor” box on his driver’s license, which gave them the authority to extend the life support so they could “do tests” to see which organs to harvest and also to keep them viable. (Don’t think I’ll ever be an organ donor. My guts are too old anyway.)

    Upon receiving the news, this meant that everyone ended up grieving (i)twice(/i) over the loss.

    Meanwhile his daughter continues to struggle, particularly with financial issues because her father didn’t see fit to give anyone else the PW to his bank account. The secret died with him. Please pray that somehow she can get access to the funds. The rest of us are giving money for her to pay for the cremation, funeral, etc. He was a USN veteran, so that may help a little.

    Many thanks again to all who prayed. Y’all are the best.

  90. Holly, Talk about sibling conflicts, selfishness, and immaturity, my 2 maternal cousins are the epitome of those attributes. When my mother passed, my aunt and 2 maternal cousins acted like as if nothing happened where they did not come to my mother’s wake or funeral.

    There was NO CONDOLENCES FROM THEM, NO SYMPATHY, NO CARDS, NOT EVEN A PHONE CALL. I also had other maternal relatives that acted the same way and did not attend my mother’s wake or funeral. The mystifying part is that my mother never had any known beefs with them to the best of my knowledge and memory.

    That was like the acid test to determine who my blood relatives really are on the inside. It’s like family can be our worst enemies.

    Some family, huh?! I now consider those so called “blood relatives” enemies. I will not attend their wake or funerals when they die.

  91. Chas, I’m sorry to hear of your brother in law’s passing. I will be praying for you guys. Talk about paperwork, when my mother died I not only had to deal with paperwork, but I had to deal with the cold and heartless attitudes of the medical staff at the hospital where my mother died. I was just a young babe in Christ for roughly a year at age 19.

    My mother had no health insurance whatsoever and we had to pay for all her medical expenses and hospital expenses all out of our own pockets from our life savings. It was the worst time of my life where I encountered some of the most cold, heartless, and insensitive people in the hospital where she died. I received no condolences from the hospital staff or from her oncologist. In fact, moments after her passing and still in tears in the hospital, I was immediately and urgently summoned to the billing office where I was confronted by a very cold and heartless man who demanded to know when I was going to pay for the hospital expenses.

    My mother’s death was also the ACID TEST to determine what kind of people my blood relatives really are. My aunt and 2 maternal cousins acted like as if nothing happened where they did not come to my mother’s wake or funeral. There was NO CONDOLENCES FROM THEM, NO SYMPATHY, NO CARDS, NOT EVEN A PHONE CALL. I also had other maternal relatives that acted the same way and did not attend my mother’s wake or funeral.

    Some family, huh?! I now consider those so called “blood relatives” enemies. I will not attend their wake or funerals when they die. When my maternal uncle was murdered (my mother’s older brother and the father of my 2 maternal cousins), my mother personally flew out to Washington state to attend his wake and funeral, but when mother dies a year later, they acted like as if nothing happened.

  92. chas, thanks for the update. I am sorry for your wife’s loss, and for the rest of her family. I have prayed for patience and wisdom for the daughter, as she has to work through the paperwork. My wife did that with her mother, and it was quite involved.

  93. Update:

    Many thanks to all who prayed for my family. My wife’s brother went to be with the Lord early Wednesday after he was taken off the ventilator. The one most needing prayer now is his daughter, who has to deal with the paperwork as well as the fact that her father was not one to “take care of business” adequately, leaving several problems in his wake. Not sure where she is with the Lord.

    Thanks again, everyone.

  94. Holly, I have prayed for you and your family.

  95. Thankful to read and see the good news of assurance of his destination. Sorry to hear about your niece Aristotle, would she want to come and live with you, or would the mother hear of it? Maybe she could spend some time with you at least, or are you in different states? Praying for wisdom.

    I also could use some prayers for some of my kids, my 20 year old, 23 year old, both boys, immature in some ways. Having lost their father at 7 and 10, not that much male influence. Jason never been a father, has not really been the influence I would have hoped for although he has been some. There is some infighting between siblings, and I can see the enemy’s hand in it as well as selfishness and immaturity. Pray for wisdom, and their desire to grow in Him, to discern the times. Love in Christ to you all.

  96. Chas, Sorry to hear of your brother in law’s current condition. However, the good news is that he’s saved and on his way to be with the Lord.

    Please share the following Scriptures with your wife and her mother and the rest of the family that the Pre-Trib Rapture is imminent.

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52 – 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and WE SHALL BE CHANGED.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 – 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

  97. Chas, that is a lot for her mother to bear. I have prayed for her specifically.

  98. Thanks so much, John. My wife is currently at her mom’s, trying to comfort her in the midst of this trial. Her mom is in her late 80s, and has a hard time dealing with things in general. She already lost one of her four sons years ago to a heart attack, so this is hitting her pretty hard.

  99. Chas, thanks for the update. I am glad that he knows Jesus as Savior and I have prayed for your wife and her family.

  100. Update on B-in-L…

    First, many thanks to Aristotle, William, John, and anyone else who prayed for him. The good news is; from all accounts of my wife and her family, he does know the Lord.

    As far as his current condition, he’s not expected to revive. Still unconscious, kidneys have shut down, stomach still bleeding, still on a ventilator which is keeping him alive. It’s beginning to look like the typical hospital protocol of going through the motions, just to be able to say “we did everything we could” after he’s gone..

    His daughter has signed a DNR order. We should know over the next couple of days.

    Thanks again, everybody.

  101. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Chas praying for your wife’s brother to be saved

  102. Chas, praying for your brother in law and I pray that he will regain consciousness to be able to hear and believe in the simplicity and truth of the gospel to be saved.

    If the visitor situation is not favorable, can you try talking to him personally over the phone in his hospital room if he regains consciousness?

    We recently were able to share the gospel with my wife’s terminally ill brother with cancer where he finally believed and got saved. Please keep us posted on his condition.

  103. Chas I have prayed that if your wife’s brother does not know Jesus as Savior, that he would have an opportunity to hear the gospel, and that God would comfort your wife and any other family that her brother may have,

  104. Would appreciate prayer for my wife’s brother who suffered a complete cardiac arrest yesterday afternoon. He’s currently in the ICU with a prognosis of “very poor”.

    He may or may not know the Lord. Having been exposed to the teaching at places like The Vineyard and Saddleback Church (Rick Warren) there’s no telling if he’s ever heard the biblical Gospel in church let alone understood it. He has heard me “preach” a short form when praying over meals at times. I don’t know exactly what he actually believes. Currently he’s unconscious, and may or may not be able to hear what goes on in the room. The visitor situation is such that I don’t think I’ll be able to see him again anyway.

    Many thanks.

  105. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Thanks so much johnincc and William. Yes William I told her the gospel and she does understand but I will go over it again with her. I really appreciate you guys thank you

  106. Aristotle, Praying for your niece Avonni and I’m praying that God will deal with both her parents for their utter selfishness and blatant parental neglect. Please keep us updated on her condition.

    Is your niece a believer?

  107. Aristotle, I have prayed that God would comfort Avanni and that He would deliver her through this turmoil in her life. I have also prayed for her parents.

  108. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Please pray for my niece Avonni. Her counselor said she is at high risk for suicide. Her mom parties 24/7 and neglects her. Her father has anger issues and also neglects her. My wife and her mother are so upset. Please pray she continues to live and that her mom starts caring for her. Thanks for everything guys

  109. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Really appreciate you guys thank you so much!

  110. So sorry to hear this, Aristotle. I am praying that the Lord will bring you the right sales job opportunity, and it be in his perfect timing.

    Praying for all your needs, know the great things He has done in our lives.

    Psalm 59:1

    Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,
    That it cannot save;
    Nor His ear heavy,
    That it cannot hear.

  112. Aristotle, Praying for you that you’ll be able to find work that pays more. Please keep us updated. God bless!

  113. Aristotle, I have prayed for your employment/financial situation.

  114. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Please pray for me. There’s been some changes at my current job I’m just not making enough money anymore. I’m doing Uber eats in the meantime but it’s not a lot of money. I’ve had some interviews but I can’t find anything I like so far. Please pray that I can find the perfect sales job quickly. Hope all of you are well.

  115. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for your son William. Also praying for Jim

  116. Praying for Jim and his roommate. New age is always bad news, but I was once hugely into new age, and God delivered me, so praying for deliverance for him too.

    Sent from Mail for Windows

  117. William, I have prayed for Kurt.

  118. Please pray for my son, Kurt. He has an anger problem and just goes off at the littlest of all things. He’s always like a short fused stick of dynamite. He needs to learn patience and tolerance and not to be always so angry.

    I have learned that anger is one letter short of danger.

  119. D, Praying for your friend Jim and his roommate.

  120. D, I have prayed for Jim for his employment need and that he will receive Justice. I have also prayed for protection the entire household.

  121. Hey all. I wanted to give an update on Jim. While he’s still living in the same place and hasn’t found a job yet, he’s been gathering evidence and in the meantime he’s been getting rid of some of his own bad habits and has been in the word a lot more and making progress in his walk with Jesus.

    I do have another prayer request for him though. His roommate went out to some sort of masonic ritual the other night “for fun” and after he came back on Halloween their home suddenly started getting hit with supernatural activity like lights flickering, stuff knocking over, the works.

    It’s not Jim’s first rodeo with the occult and he’s been rebuking them, but his room mate is another story and seems to follow some New Age “jesus”. Please pray for them and their cat.

    Thanks again for the prayer board here. I don’t talk much, but I lurk here sometimes and see what people post and offer up prayers myself.

  122. Holly Garcia Held

    William, we know that He doesn’t give us a spirit of fear. And there is one way to answer the enemy. And that is, “It is written.”

    It was the example Christ used (Matt 4), so I always think it’s good for us to follow His example. He too can answer with Scripture or reading Scripture out loud. His peace will come from knowing more about the one who saved him, so encourage him to dive into His Word.

    It’s a spiritual battle, and we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices, but newbies are, and need us to point them to Scripture that will help.

  123. John, Thanks for your prayer support. Van just told me that he was involved in witchcraft during his childhood and teenage years. It appears that Satanic entities are attacking him because of his conversion in Christ.

    I personally know a pastor who was attacked by evil forces when he led a person who was involved in the occult to Christ. He would come home and he would find all of his electronic equipment including his computer and house lights just flicker on and off in a very erratic way. This is just like in the movie, “The Exorcist” where the kitchen and house lights would go on and off in that house where that girl who was dabbling with a ouija board lived.

  124. William, I have prayed for Van.

  125. Please pray for a person named Van who is a believer who is now experiencing intense demonic oppression. It has gotten to the point where he dreads waking up every morning. He says that he’s prayed to God about this ongoing oppression, but things have only gotten worse and the attacks are relentless.

  126. Aristotle, Praying for you that you will be able to obtain a reliable car for your work. It’s good to hear that you were not injured. The Lord was watching over you. Praise God!

  127. Aristotle, I am sorry that you got into a car accident, and thankful that you weren’t injured. I have prayed that you will be able to get the car that you need.

  128. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys. Got into a car accident last Saturday. I’m fine but car is totaled. Please pray that i’m able to finance a car that’s in good condition. I need one as soon as possible because my job involves driving. Praying that God helps all of you with whatever you need.

  129. D, I’m praying for your friend Jim that God will deal with the man who abused and sexually assaulted him and that Jim will be able to find employment despite his spinal problem and immune sickness. Please keep us updated on Jim’s situation.

    Psalm 103:6 – The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

  130. D, I have prayed for your friend, that he would find gainful employment, be comforted in his spinal and immune issues, find a good living situation, and receive Justice for the sexual assault and undermining of his character perpetrated by the man who has been abusing him.

  131. I have a prayer request for a brother in Christ who goes by Jim.

    He has a hard time finding stable employment due to spinal issues and an immune disorder, and is currently in a really bad living situation with a man who acts abusive towards him that recently sexually assaulted him. He’s managed to get an audio recording that could help him press charges, but he’s hesitant for various reasons. Apart from this person basically being his primary source of income and place to stay he’s gone out of his way to try and isolate him from other people by spreading ugly gossip around their community.

    Please pray that he’d be able to find a place to stay and get justice for this, and that he could find gainful employment that he could do with his health problems.

    Thank you for your website and prayer request board.

  132. Holly, Thank you for your kind words. We have every reason to believe that his cancer was no doubt caused by the “vaccine” as he took all 3 jabs. I have a whole compilation of cases of people who developed cancer shortly after getting jabbed.

    These are healthy people who had no previous family history of cancer, but after getting the jabs, they suddenly developed cancer.

  133. Holly Garcia Held

    William, so sorry to hear. Praying your wife will have peace and joy knowing her brother believed.

    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
    1 Corinthians 2:9

  134. William, I have prayed for your wife’s family in the loss of her brother and that those who don’t know Jesus as Savior will hear the gospel and understand so that they may believe and be saved.

  135. Please pray for my wife’s family. Her older brother died this morning in hospice care. He had end stage liver cancer. The good news is that he BELIEVED on Christ when we shared the gospel with him several weeks ago so he is eternally secure possessing eternal life.

    Please pray that his unsaved family members will also come to know Christ and be saved.

  136. Daniel, Praying for you and your sister. It appears that your sister is a very self righteous bullying instigator who gets pleasure at berating your nephew.

    I once had a so called maternal “relative” that was the same way. She would bully my mother. She was the type of person who knew how to push the right buttons to irritate and trigger off people, especially my mother.

    I pray that God will deal with her accordingly in His wisdom.

  137. Daniel, I have prayed that your sister will be able to interact with your nephew, your father , and you in a constructive way. I also prayed that God would grant you wisdom, patience, and discretion in dealing with your sister’s behavior.

    It seems like people should grow up as they grow old, but that doesn’t always happen.

  138. Hey guys. I’m sorry if this is too long.
    Just need to get something off my chest.

    Looks like my sister didn’t learn from the last time, she did it again.

    Berating our nephew for him wanting a bike so he can get to weis (to get a job there) and her claiming that while also being combative with him that my dad (who had a conversation with our nephew about the job) doesn’t have enough money for a bike.

    He asked my dad if that’s the case, and it was, for the moment that is. For the moment.

    They then had a heated exchanged with my sister then finally saying: “nearly 30 years old and don’t have a job”

    He had worked before at other jobs previously.

    She’s nearly 50 and acting like this. I’m just hoping i don’t act like that when I’m her age. I’m just disappointed and embarrassed at her toxic behavior.

    She just came out the room after a while and was talking with my dad, something about the incident.

    And then she includes my name because I’m assuming that she heard me being aggravated at the childish banter that had occurred earlier. Like I’m NOT allowed to voice my displeasure at that womanchild.

    I heard her being all self-righteous while talking to my dad saying the “i rebuke you in Jesus name” directed towards either our nephew or me this time. And i heard her smugly chuckling afterwards.

    Please pray that her behavior changes.

    Either she gets it together or else, when the lord returns she’ll hear it from God the hard way.

  139. Amen, indeed it is! PRAISE GOD!!!!

  140. William, that is wonderful news! I am thankful that you were able to share the message with your wife’s brother and that he now has eternal life in Christ Jesus!

  141. Thank you, Yerbae’, Fryingpan9, and John, Thank you for praying for us. We visited my brother in law in the hospital today where we shared the gospel with him again and this time he believed and accepted Christ as His Savior. He reached out with both hands asking the Lord to save him. Praise God!

    He has come to terms with his dying, but he now possesses eternal life knowing that he’s going to heaven after he passes. We’ve been praying for him and his family for quite some time. It sometimes takes a life threatening situation before people wake up to the truth. We led his mom, who is my mother in law to Christ about 2 years ago, and this year his mother in law also became a believer after we shared the gospel with her. Praise God!

    John 5:24 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    Luke 23:42-43 – And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, TODAY shalt thou be with me in paradise.

  142. I am praying for you William and your brother in law, that he will believe the Gospel.

  143. Fryingpan9 and John,

    Thanks to you both for your prayer support.

  144. William, I have prayed for your brother-in-law and the situation you and your wife find yourself in. (I pray for you every day, BTW, but that’s kind of beside the point.)

  145. William, I have prayed that you and your wife will have an opportunity to share the gospel again with her brother, and that the Lord will guide you and give you wisdom in your conversations with him.

  146. Please pray for me and my wife as we are going to the hospital to visit her dying brother. He has end stage liver cancer. I earlier shared the gospel with him 2 weeks prior to his admission into the hospital, but he said that “he’ll think about it.”

    We both want to share the gospel with him again. Please pray that the Lord will use us both effectively in our presentation of the gospel to him. Please pray that he NOT be like the soil that Jesus described in Luke 8:5/Luke 8:12, but that he wake up and be like the thief on the cross in Luke 23:42-43.

    Thanks to all who will be praying.

  147. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you William. Praying for you Van

  148. Van, Praying for you and your family that the Lord will provide financial aid.

  149. Van, I have prayed for you and your family, and your financial situation.

  150. Please pray for me and my family’s financial aid

  151. Holly, I am thankful that your daughter and granddaughter are doing well, and that the smoke has cleared.

  152. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you all, she left her mother’s womb about 12:30 yesterday, weighing in at 10’11”. My daughter is 5’8″ and her husband is 6’5″ so her last baby was pudgy filled out too. We’re very happy, bittersweet as I’m not there, but appreciative for the prayers.

    The smoke has basically cleared up here, so thank you for that also.

  153. William, I have prayed for your brother in law and that you will have another opportunity to share the gospel with him.

  154. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please pray for my brother in law who is in the hospital right now. He was admitted just this past week and had some extensive tests ran which revealed that he has end stage liver cancer. As I stated earlier, we as the few believers in his family who are not going along with the narrative have every reason to believe that his cancer is the direct result of his taking the 3 jabs which he did out of his own choice. He is slowly waking up and feeling regret at having done so seeing the condition that he’s in now.

    He was not working and has been unemployed for quite some time due to having a stroke. He was brainwashed by the narrative and all the fear mongering. The tragedy is that he never did any research or homework before taking the jabs. : (

    Prior to his admittance 2 weeks before, I was able to share the simplicity of the gospel with him over the phone. He said that he would “think about it.” His condition is not improving and to make matters worse, the hospital is not allowing any “unvaccinated” people to visit.

    Please pray that if he gets discharged from the hospital and sent home for hospice care that I have another opportunity to share the gospel with him again before it’s too late.

  155. Holly, I have prayed for your daughter to have a healthy and safe delivery and that your grandchild will arrive safe and sound!

  156. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you all, the smoke has not completely dissipated, but we did have light rain yesterday, the fog is still there, but I can see down to the island and mountain which were obstructed before.

    Today is my daughter’s day to give birth (Lord willing). She went in last night and last I heard she was ready to give birth to my 14th, a granddaughter.

    This will be 14 under the age of SIX.

    Can you guys believe the whirlwind of babies? My 3rd daughter married at 19 (I was not thrilled with the age), but 3 years later had her first and two more daughters after). And everyone seemed to be in a competition lol, so appreciate the prayers for her safety and the baby’s health and safety too.

  157. Thank you William, John and Holly. My family really appreciates the prayers.

    William- the 12 year old was my wife’s cousin’s stepson. Sorry to hear that about your Mother in law and Brother in law. I believe that about the shot as well. My sister in laws father got cancer shortly after taking his first shot and he believed until he passed that it had caused or exacerbated it. I’ve prayed for your family and that y’all have peace from the grief.
    Holly, hope you and your family are safe from the fires and smoke. I’ve asked the Lord to watch over your family and the firefighters.

  158. Holly, I have prayed for the safety of the firefighters and that the fires will be extinguished soon.

  159. Holly Garcia Held

    Justin, what sorrow…I pray for His comfort for everyone, and for those who have received gifts from this loss, that the Lord might bring laborers in their lives, to bring the clear gospel if they do not know it.

    God bless each one’s needs.

    We’re surrounded by some wildfires, not close, but air quality is extremely bad right now. Eyes tearing up, lots of sneezing, and difficulty, so praying for the firemen’s safety and a quick resolution to these fires. And if arson is part of it in any of them that those people will be found.

  160. Justin B, My 85 year old mother in law is also in hospice care right now. The good news is that she finally believed in Jesus when we shared the gospel with her about 2 years ago. I’m sorry to hear of your wife’s cousin’s stepson. Was this the 12 year old boy who hung himself?

    There’s also grief on my wife’s side of the family as my wife’s mother has failing kidneys down to 5% efficiency which is why she’s in hospice care. Her doctor’s prognosis is that she has about 6 months or less. My wife’s older brother is dying right now with liver cancer. He took the 3rd Covid booster shot where he suddenly came down with liver cancer shortly afterwards. We have every reason to believe it as the Covid shots that contributed to his liver cancer. Prior to that he was fine.

  161. Justin, thanks for updating us.

    I have prayed for your grandmother, you, and all of your family, as well as your wife, and her cousin and her family. It is so sad to hear of the young man’s passing. I am thankful that his organs could be used to help others.

    I have prayed that God would comfort each of you, and I am thankful that this period of grief you are undergoing is bringing your family closer together.

  162. I want to thank you all for your prayers. I’ve never met any of you, but I wanted y’all to know that you’ve helped me in some of my darkest times over the years, when I’ve came here for prayer requests. God’s timing is much different than our own. My grandmother is in Hospice now and I pray that she goes to be with the Lord soon. My wife’s cousin’s stepson also was taken off life support, but his organs gave life to 8 others in need. And I thank the Lord for that. Thank you all, and I pray that God blesses each of you. There’s a lot of grief in our family right now, but I can feel it’s brought us closer.

  163. Justin B, I’m praying for your grandmother Shirley too. Please keep us updated.

  164. William, I can relate.

  165. John, Thank you. Getting older is no fun. : ( Just like an old automobile.

  166. William, I have prayed for your comfort, sleep, and relief from your urinary urgency and frequency.

  167. Aristotle, Praying for your friend Michael Churchill that his landlord be a man of his word and not play games with Michael and that he would allow the dogs to stay as he originally agreed. Dogs are amazing and they can be the most friendly of all animals.

  168. John and Aristotle, Thanks for praying for me. My urine test came back negative for urinary tract infection, but I’m still waiting for the other lab test results that were also done where the results will be in about 3 to 5 days.

    My last night’s sleep was much better. Please continue to pray that I’ll be able to see my urologist sooner and please pray that the urgency to go will be lessened so that I can sleep at night. It’s been a real rough couple of weeks.


  169. Justin B, Very sorry about what happened. : ( I’m praying for your wife’s cousin Ryan and his family and the 12 year old stepson. Please keep us updated.

  170. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for your people Justin B

  171. Justin, I have prayed for you, your wife, and each of your families, for your grandmother, and for Ryan and his family.

  172. Please pray for my wife’s cousin Ryan and his family. He found his 12 y.o stepson this morning that had hung himself. His brother actually found him first. They revived him, but he’s basically paralyzed and unresponsive. The poor kid had a rough life. His mother died of an od while he was still an infant and his father had passed as well. Also please keep my grandmother Shirley in your prayers, she was rushed to the hospital with blood clots in her legs and will probably have to be put on a feeding tube. Thank you, it’s been an emotional day today. God bless you all.

  173. Aristotle, I have prayed that God would lead your friend Michael to a suitable solution.

  174. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you William

  175. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Please pray for my friend Michael Churchill. His landlord agreed to him having dogs for a while now but all of a sudden he is telling my friend Michael he must get rid of all his dogs or be evicted. So horrible. The dogs are his family. Please pray that the landlord stops this madness and has a change of heart

  176. William, it sounds like you’ve had some issues that could be contributing to your current problem. I am hopeful that you will get it quickly resolved.

  177. John, Thank you. I just did an online search. I don’t believe my current symptoms fit the description of a urinary tract infection or bladder infection, but they certainly fit the description of an overactive bladder. An overactive bladder is caused by a malfunction of the detrusor muscle, which in turn can be caused by: Nerve damage caused by abdominal trauma, pelvic trauma or surgery. Bladder stones.

    I had laser surgery for prostate enlargement and bladder stones back in Feb of this year. It sounds possible that the surgery and the bladder stones can cause these future problems. : (

  178. William, I have prayed that God would comfort you and that you would be able to get the medical attention you need right away.

  179. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Please pray for me. Hope things are going well for you all. Things are not going well for me right now as I have either an overactive bladder, a bladder infection, or a urinary tract infection that’s been killing me. This past week has been very rough as I have to get up 4 to 5 times a night to urinate which is greatly disrupting my sleep. : (

    Last night was one of the worst as I had to get up 6 to 7 times during the night to go where I barely had enough sleep. My urologist is closed today because of the Labor Day weekend and he’s totally booked for the whole month of September. I called his office in the middle of the night where I was told to seek help from an urgent care center that’s open 7 days a week.

    I’m scheduled for an early morning televisit via webcam with an online doctor this morning. I’m in a catch 22 situation. I was always told in the past to drink lots of water to keep hydrated and to help dilute the urine in my bladder as I have a past history of kidney and bladder stones, but because of the high probability that I have an overactive bladder, the more water I drink, the more I have to go to the bathroom. Daytime hours are not so bad, but nighttime hours I’m starting to get nervous and dread. : (

    It’s been known in a lot of people that once excess urine accumulates in the bladder that the formation of bladder stones is very likely. Urinating too little is not good, and urinating too much is also not good. Please pray that I’ll be able to get a urine test done sometime today at an urgent care facility to rule out if I have a urinary tract or bladder infection and please pray that I’ll be able to see my urologist sooner. Thanks for your prayers.


  180. Holly Garcia Held

    William, praying for your wife’s family to have their eyes opened to the truth. Keep sharing any tidbits of God’s Word you are able, it is powerful and won’t return void.

    My dad underwent dialysis at 86-88, it was a strain, and his last few months of life weren’t great, but he was ready. My 80 something year old friend was almost in stage 4 failure. I can’t say for sure it was the melatonin, but it was the only thing she’s done different in the last 6 mos. Her numbers went from 29 up to 37 and her doctor was cautiously optimistic, and then 3 months later it went from 37 to 56, and he called her up and said he needed to know what she was doing different. She told him that she was taking 15 mg. of melatonin at breakfast, lunch and nighttime 15 with a 10mg timed on top. She also added in fiber gummies (just one each meal so I doubt that was it).

    He was kind of incredulous, and she being the tough German she was, said, “Look it up, it’s worked for me and there are studies on it, you should know.”

    LOL, likewise, her doctor for her diabetes, her A1C dropped below 7, and she has never been anywhere close to 7 she said, and she dropped down 2 shots (short acting) and 1 long term. The woman doctor simply poo poohed her. So, she is doing great. Maybe she might want to try. Whatever it may be, praying for the best for eternity sake.

  181. Thank you John, Tom, and Aristotle. It’s been really hard on my wife. I appreciate your prayers.

  182. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for your people William. Miss all of you guys.

  183. Prayed tonight for all of them, the spiritual needs and the situation at hand. God bless

  184. William, I have prayed for your mother-in-law, as well as her family – that God would comfort each of them, that those who know Jesus as Savior would grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus, and that any who don’t know Jesus as Savior would hear the gospel and understand, so that they might believe and be saved.

  185. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

    Please pray for my mother in law who has failing kidneys. She was evaluated by 4 to 5 kidney specialists last Thursday who concluded that kidney dialysis would not be advisable for her because of her old age at 85. The weekly meds and injections that are being given to her are not working to help with her kidneys, but is creating more side effects including insomnia. Her doctors said that the prognosis is that she has about 6 months of life left.

    The good news is that she is saved as we shared the gospel with her about 2 years ago where she finally was convinced about Jesus and believed. Please pray for her husband and for her family that they also believe and be saved. Her older daughter, who is my wife, is the only other person on my mother in law’s side of the family that is saved.

    Please pray that the rest of her family will wake up and believe as her whole family is brainwashed by decades of ancestor and idol worship.

  186. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying and asking that the Lord might supernaturally encourage him as well as him drawing nearer to the Lord. I have a friend on FB who suddenly lost her husband and was mourning him for a couple weeks when she posted her oldest daughter had suddenly died. The Lord’s comfort is like no other so praying for that for him.

  187. What an awful season this fellow is going through indeed. I’ve prayed that God would help him through this, and that he’d get close to God and gain whatever perspectives he might need.

  188. Thanks John. By the way, Brian’s sister is a Free Grace Christian who listens to Ralph Yankee Arnold. Let’s all pray that Brian will get back on track with the Lord despite the fact of this tragic event.

  189. William, I have prayed for Brian in the loss of his fiance’ and her dog, and that his situation and outlook would improve.

  190. Dears brothers and sisters in the faith, Please pray for Brian who suffers from bipolar disorder and just suffered the sudden and tragic loss of his beloved fiancé. His fiancé left behind a dog which was the only source of comfort for him, but now the dog also died. He lost his faith as a believer many years ago. Brian is devastated right now and is having a lot of anger at God and also having suicidal thoughts.

    Please keep him in your prayers and please pray that a good turn of events will take place for Brian from God. Thanks to all.

  191. Holly, I’m glad you are feeling stronger and that ya’ll are doing well. Thanks for your continued prayers.

  192. Holly Held

    Miss you all, we are doing well, and I am feeling stronger. I miss the more lively interactions. Praying you’re all well and content in the Lord. Praying for your needs.

  193. Thank you John. I appreciate your prayers.

  194. Justin, I have prayed for your dad, Kyle, that his surgery will be successful, and that he will have relief from his pain.

    I have also prayed for Butch, that he would be comforted, and that he will have a great 4th with you, and will be pain-free.

    I have prayed for you and your family, and for Butch’s family as well.

  195. Hello, hope you all are doing well. Please keep my Dad Kyle and my sister in laws Dad, Butch in your prayers. Butch has stage 4 lung cancer and the family is having a really tough time with it, he doesn’t seem to have a lot of time left. He’s coming to our 4th of July get together and I pray that he can enjoy it and not be in pain. My dad Kyle had surgery to open up the blood flow in his leg and is having a lot of pain with it. So much so that he’s asked me to pray about it quite a few times. Thank you all for your prayers and faith!

  196. William, I have prayed that you will have wisdom in dealing with the situation with your other tenant, and that it will go well.

  197. Please pray for us. Today, one of our tenants moved out, but we had to deduct from their security deposit which was stipulated in the rental agreement because of damage done to the wall paint and sheetrock in the living room and his bedroom. The tenant got very upset and left angrily. The 2nd tenant from the same unit is moving out tomorrow where we also have to deduct from his security deposit as there is also damage in his bedroom in regards to paint on the wall. Paint has become very expensive as some paint stores can charge up to $70 to $80 per gallon for higher quality paint.

    Please pray that the Lord give us wisdom in handling the situation tomorrow with the 2nd tenant. Some tenants just can’t and won’t understand that their negligence in being careful will have consequences.

    Thank you all.

  198. Chas, Thank you for your prayers for me. Having a compromised immune system is not easy, especially when it’s been this way all my life. I noticed many people just get well from the common cold and the flu by taking lots of Vitamin C along with other supplements and natural remedies like chicken soup, etc, but not me.

    It was always “back to the doctor’s office I go” because of a bad throat infection and persistent hacking cough leading to an imminent prescription of heavy duty antibiotics and heavy duty cough syrups. The problem with many of these antibiotics is that they not only annihilate the bad bacteria in the body, but also annihilate the good bacteria as well, leaving a person susceptible to another infection. So, it can be a catch 22.

    Yep, I agree with you regarding how RC creates self-righteousness and a fixation on so called “sacred objects” that supposedly bring “blessings” and “good luck”. It’s this “if I possess a small piece or touch the edge of the Pope’s cloak”, then “I’ll be blessed” mentality which is in reality idolatry. I once had a high school buddy who was deeply entrenched in RC where he would literally get down to the ground and kiss the carpet just inside the main entrance to a RC church before going in to “worship”.

    Yep, and all false works based doctrines will no doubt create a sanctimonious “I’m holier than thou” attitude in their followers just like Jesus clearly indicated in Luke 18:9-12. We see this especially among those in the Calvinism/Lordship Salvation camp and other camps as well.

  199. William…
    Praying for your prompt and complete recovery.

    Boy-oh-boy, can I ever sympathize. I have an older sister who remains a staunch Catholic (and quietly blames me for the rest of the family jumping the RCC ship). She always had a tendency toward self-righteousness, but it got worse after the big family “falling away”. Decades of doubling down on RCC doctrine has rendered her not only more self righteous, but increasingly sanctimonious in that suffocating, condescending, biblically ignorant way which only the RCC can do. Plus, she seems to have ventured into the more liberal, mystical aspects of current practice, prattling about “sacred places” and “holy objects” and other… stuff. Lately even my wife–who used to just let it all roll off her back–is getting weirded out when she talks to her.
    My wife has long believed that I’m not the one who will break through the veil over my sister. I’ve come to that conclusion as well. (Little brother don’t know nuthin’.) So I just pray and let wifey talk to sis.
    But in the meantime, it is galling, I know. Must be a lot worse when you’re living in the same house.

  200. Holly Garcia Held

    You’re all in my prayers.

    In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
    In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
    Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
    1 John 4:9-11

  201. William, I am thankful that your wife and son have recovered.

    I have prayed that your immune system will strengthen and that you will recover soon and fully.

  202. Please pray for me. Recently, me, my wife, and my son all got infected with covid with symptoms and were really sick. This is our 16th day, but thank God my wife and son have tested negative for covid today. They were positive with covid during the 2nd week of June along with me, but thank God we were all able to take Ivermectin/Zithromycin which greatly helped. I also took Hydroxychloroquine where I’m down to my last tablet.

    I, however, have tested positive again and am still having a lingering cough that won’t go away. I know I have a compromised immune system since childhood as I was never able to recover naturally on my own from the common cold and flu. Other people, however, were able to recover naturally on their own with natural remedies like herbs, supplements, etc. Since childhood, I would always have to take antibiotics in order to recover from the common cold and flu and I would always get a cough that would last over a month. It was like this every time. : (

    I spoke with a physician the other day who told me that people with a compromised immune system will tend to hang onto the virus longer than other people and will take longer to heal.

    Please pray for immune system and for my recovery. Thank you all.

  203. Daniel, Praying for you and your sister. It appears that your sister has a double standard where it’s okay for her to criticize and provoke others, but not okay for others to criticize and provoke her. Very typical of human nature and very typical of those who embrace Lordship Salvation. She sounds just like my father and my older brother in-law. It was because of my brother in law’s Pharisaical self-righteousness, unjustified criticisms, and ungratefulness that I evicted him out of my apartment for good.

    John MacArthur, up on his proud high tower, once wrote off a Christian as “unsaved” just because this person owned a chain of liquor stores. MacArthur might as well come to the same conclusion regarding saved Christians who work in vineyards, wine stores, wine wholesale/retail, and as waiters and waitresses serving beer and wine in restaurants.

    Yet we read of our Lord Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding.

  204. Daniel, I have prayed for you and your sister.

    We can never know whether or not another person has eternal life, but you are wise to be concerned that your sister doesn’t seem clear on the gospel.

    I suspect each of us has relatives that are difficult to deal with and some who don’t seem to be clear on the gospel. Some may never be receptive to even talking about it.

  205. I have had some problems today as a result of my “christian” sister acting out. I’m one myself, but i don’t believe she is, based on the fact that she believes in a false gospel, faith + works to be saved and to stay saved.

    Now to the point.
    This is what happened.
    My sister asked me to help her out with some boxes in the basement and bring them up, she then called our nephew from his room to help out.

    But then she proceeded to make some smart mouth remarks to him and pretty much provoked a response from him.

    In which the two of them began bickering and it got me riled up. She said to him, “Satan, in Jesus name, shut up.”

    To which i thought in my mind to her (Get thee behind me satan, shut it!)

    So i called them both out and she got mad at ME for calling her out, as if she is above reproach.

    She then let her pride get in the way and refused to let me help her.

    I cannot stand the fact that she thinks she can dish it out, but when it comes back at her, she can’t take it.

    Due to the type of person she is, she pretty much won’t even listen to what i have to say concerning the true gospel.

    She needs to admit she was wrong and swallow her pride.

    Or i will have to show her tough love.
    (Romans 16:17-18) “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

    Please pray that she learns from her mishaps, grows up (45 years old, but acts up) and not escalate things and not twist our words around. I’m just so done with this. 😑

  206. Chas, I’m also glad to hear that you and your wife are both free from covid and have avoided the so called “vaccine”. Most vaccines take at least 10 to 15 years of intensive research and testing before being approved and released to the public on humans, but with these covid “vaccines”, these were released in less than a year’s time which tells us something is dreadfully wrong, and very fishy.

    Many honest doctors of integrity who care about the sanctity of human life have come forward and revealed that these “vaccines” have caused way more deaths than covid deaths.

  207. Chas, I’m glad to hear that you and your wife have avoided both the disease and the jabs.

  208. Many thanks to William, John, and anyone else who prayed for my wife re her exposure to C-19.
    Update: Though the (allegedly) C-19 afflicted employee hasn’t returned to work yet, my wife still has no symptoms. We have taken zinc, magnesium and various vitamins etc for a while. Have never gotten jabbed, either, so our immune systems are intact. The Lord has protected us from both the disease and its “remedy”.
    Meanwhile, I continue to collect links to new articles spotlighting newly-found problems with the jab. The more we know, the worse it looks.

  209. Daniel, Praying for you and your family that God’s hedge of protection be upon you all. Do you have any unsaved family members that dabble with such objects as ouija boards, tarot cards, etc.? If so, you should throw these objects away ASAP as these objects are known to attract unwelcome visitors in the home.

  210. Daniel, I have prayed for you and your family, that you would be safe and protected.

  211. Hey guys, me and my family are moving out soon and there is one thing that is worrying me. When my sister was in the kitchen eating, she said she felt something brush by her back but there was nobody there.
    Please pray that whatever entity that was in the kitchen does NOT follow us when we move out.
    Satan i rebuke you in Jesus name!

  212. Praying for all my brethren here and their various needs. He knows, and He cares. He has come through for us so many times before, and I trust He will again. Love in Him.

  213. William, I have prayed for Ping, that she would be comforted and healed. I have also prayed for her mother. I am thankful that she has believed in Jesus as her Savior.

  214. Please pray for my wife, Ping, as she’s been having ongoing issues with acid reflux. She was also infected with covid along with me and my son recently. We just all finished our 5 day course of Ivermectin/Zithromycin and we’re feeling much better. My wife’s acid reflux acts up whenever she experiences extreme stress where she could feel the acid burn in her esophagus and throat. I’ve read medical articles that stated that prolonged acid burns in the esophagus/throat can result in cancer. : (

    She’s been so stressed out lately not just with covid, but her mother was recently admitted into the emergency room where tests were run that revealed that her mother is having kidney failure and is down to 5% function capacity. : ( The kidney specialist privately called me 2 days ago and told me that my wife’s mother needs kidney dialysis, but that a delay could seriously jeopardize her life. : (

    My mother in law (my wife’s mother) declined for now and is back at home where she is on meds temporarily to help with the kidney dysfunction. It’s just a matter of time. The good news is that my wife’s mother is saved where we shared the gospel with her last year and explained to her the reality of hell and the imminent Great White Throne Judgment/Lake of Fire. For the longest time she refused to believe, but last year things were different. She finally told us that she did not want to go to hell and end up in the Lake of Fire when we shared the gospel with her in more detail taking Revelation 20:11-15 into account.

  215. Tom, I’ve prayed for you, your family and friends too.

    God bless.

  216. Chas, I prayed for your wife that she will be well and not affected by covid. Some people have stronger immune systems than others. One of my co-workers was recently infected with covid when she was working with a child in the school where I work. However, her husband was fine and did not get infected despite the fact that they both live in the same house and are unvaccinated. My co worker was able to recover without meds and recovered using natural remedies similar to what Holly recommended.

  217. Ton, I’ve prayed for you, your family, your friends and each of your respective needs and ministries.

  218. Hello everyone,
    I just thought I’d let you know that, although I’m not posting much here, I do still get notification and am praying over many of the requests and individuals. And, please pray for me, my family and friend’s various needs and ministries. Thanks

  219. Chas, praying for your wife to stay well.

  220. William…
    Praying for you and your family.
    Many thanx for the detailed suggestions for remedies. My wife’s employer is still maintaining mask wearing for un-jabbed employees, though customers and jabbed employees aren’t required to mask up. My wife was told yesterday that she may have been exposed to C19 by a fellow employee who tested positive. (Yes, that employee is vaxxed and boosted to the hilt.) No word about testing yet. The wife plans to go into work tonight.

  221. William, I am continuing to pray for you and your family.

  222. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you and your family William

  223. My daughter did well with a steamer as opposed to a humidifier too. Don’t know if that would help you William. I assume you’ve used things like guaifenesin which is one of the recommended things for cough.

  224. William, please don’t forget the Melatonin dosing. Look up Dr. Neel and High Dose Melatonin on youtube, it will tell you the amounts. You can also look on NIH for Covid Pneumonia double blind study with melatonin. But the video is helpful for dosing (but it’s basically 180 mg. a day while sick — he gave that amount to elderly women). But there is a chart in there by weight, you might have to stop the video and take screen shots. It’s only a 17 min. video, excerpt from a Medical symposium.

    Remember things like Sodium Ascorbate powder (or vit C) in honey lemon water, keep sipping, keeping your throat warm and the germs going down. Praying for your recovery. Sometimes people have to take more antibiotics. I’m sure you’ve looked on the frontline.

    Praying for all of you here to be strengthened in His Word, in your health, and comforted in this world we are vexed by.

  225. William, I took a bunch of stuff, too. I had the cough for almost 3 weeks.

  226. Thank you, John. It’s a real ordeal every night as hours seem like days when we can’t sleep. Cough drops and potent cough meds have failed.

  227. William, I have prayed again for you and your family. I can relate to the cough issue. It was a real problem for me when I was sick. I have prayed that you would have relief from your cough and be able to get to sleep.

  228. Hi John and Holly, Please continue to pray for me and my family as we have finished our 5 day course of Ivermectin/Zithromycin. What’s really killing the 3 of us now is the persistent cough that won’t respond to any cough meds, I have it the worst as my cough keeps me up for hours at night disrupting my sleep where I only get about 2 hours.

  229. Holly Held

    Praying the same as John for you William.

  230. William, I have prayed for your healing and that you will get the treatment that you need. I have also continued to pray for Kurt and his healing, and for your wife to keep free of infection.

  231. Hi everyone, Please pray for me. I tested positive this morning for Covid. I feel AWFUL and my whole body is aching in my joints and I’m coughing my guts out. I got a hold of a good doctor who is not going along with the narrative and the office is going to call me late afternoon today.

    Please pray that I’ll be able to get a prescription of you know what to nip it in the bud. Presently, the mere mention of this med will be immediately blocked on YT. Please pray for my son as well who tested positive 3 times and my wife. She tested negative twice so far, but you never know, things could rapidly change overnight.

    Thanks in advance for your prayers.

  232. William, I have prayed for Kurt’s quick recovery, and for you and your wife to stay free from infection.

  233. Please pray for my son, Kurt. He tested positive for covid this morning. However, me and my wife tested negative. Please pray that God’s protection be upon us.

  234. Holly Garcia Held

    Thanks for praying for them. I’m reminded, one plants, another waters. Praying for them all. So sad, so many lost. They think they’re happy but…

    The bottom line we all know, that even outside of heaven, there is no true happiness without Him. Praying for them to come to know of His great love and sacrifice for them.

  235. Holly, Glad to hear you’re at home. I’ll be praying for Cari, Erin, and Tristan and hope they will believe and be saved. My son was able to share the gospel today to a 20 year old girl at the church where brother Dave was speaking at. She clearly understood the gospel, believed, and got saved.

    Today at the church, Dave was reaching out to a group of unsaved people including recovering drug addicts, etc.

  236. Holly, I have prayed for Cari, and for Eric and Tristen. I am thankful that you are home, for the care your received from Erin and Tristen, and that you took the opportunity to share the gospel with them.

  237. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you everyone, I am actually home. Pretty odd considering, the initial surgeon said, “You will be here at least 7 days, that’s for sure.”

    I appreciated his reasoning why. And I’m thankful for the time I was there.

    Please pray for my roommate Cari, terrible infection, was able to share a gospel booklet with her with my contact info and website too. I don’t know if she’ll contact me or not. I helped with her all I could, she couldn’t hear well. I also did the same with the gospels with two nurses, Erin and Tristen. Please say a prayer they may come to know He loves them if they don’t. Those two were very good to me.

  238. Holly, for brother Dave, it’s not hemorrhoids, but the doctors suspect it is intestinal polyps. Anyway, when he flies back to the east coast, he’ll be seeing a specialist.

    By the way, brother Dave is an online student taking classes from Florida Bible College which is led by Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold.

  239. Holly, that is good news! I am thankful that it is going better than expected.

  240. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you both for praying, I meant to say rectal bleeding can be serious, sometimes just hemorrhoids, so will pray.

  241. Holly Garcia Held

    Yes, it’s gone way better than expected for me. They told me this morning 2 more days (shortened from a solid 7-10 days, the day before), to ‘you can go in a few hours’ just a minute ago by the surgeon.

  242. Holly, I didn’t know you are in the hospital as well. I’m praying for you too. Please keep us updated on your health. Dave was in the emergency room overnight where they ran some tests on him. His CT and blood work came back normal, but the doctors suspect it might be intestinal polyps. They instructed for him to see a specialist to have a colonoscopy done when he flies back home to the east coast.

    Anyway, he’s out of the emergency room and having a speaking engagement in a church today.

  243. Holly, I have prayed for your comfort and quick recovery, and for your upcoming surgery.

  244. Holly Garcia Held

    William, Dave should go to a hospital with those symptoms, (which is where I am now). I had diverticulitus and perforation but my body formed an abscess around it and they’re kind of marveling that it hasn’t caused fever and systemic infection, and it’s the largest they’d seen (a mass in my abdomen). I was sick for a week at home and was taking mega doses of melatonin. So they did surgery yesterday for the mass. Told me I’d be in for at least a week, but now they’re kind of wondering if it will be earlier, praise God. Anyways, will have to have another surgery in a few weeks and God willing, everything will be o.k..

  245. William, I have prayed for Dave to find the specialist that he needs in the most convenient place possible.

  246. John, Thanks. Please pray that Dave will be able to find a specialist for further testing like a colonoscopy. He’s originally from the East coast and he just flew out here to California for a speaking engagement at a church on Saturday, but the way things are going he may have to fly back and find a specialist ASAP. : (

  247. William, I have prayed for Dave.

  248. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please pray for a dear Free Grace brother named Dave. He was supposed to give a sermon this Saturday, but may have to cancel. He has been passing blood in his stools and is currently in the emergency room. Tests were done where the doctors suspect it is the large intestine. Please pray for him.

    Thank you all.

  249. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying for all the needs here, even as we look back and see all of God’s faithfulness in our lives, and in history. And we look forward to His coming for us in the clouds.

  250. Justin, Praying for your dad. My father in law recently had the same surgery done to his leg.

  251. Justin, I have prayed that God would deliver your father, Kyle, through this surgery, and that He would comfort and heal him.

  252. Please keep my father Kyle in your prayers. He goes in for surgery tomorrow to open up the blood flow in his leg. Thank you all. And I hope everyone is doing well.

  253. William, I have prayed for Candice and her family.

  254. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please pray for an 11 year old girl who has been very sick. I don’t have any details, but her name is Candice and she comes from a remnant Christian family that is Free Grace.

    Thank you all.

  255. Aristotle, hang in there. I was at about 60% for several weeks after I got over the acute phase. For me, I didn’t seem to making great progress, and then it mostly just vanished one day.

  256. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey Johninnc and William. Thank you for the advice I appreciate it. William I don’t have covid anymore but I think I might be what the fall a “long hauler”. My body has just not been the same since covid. It’s like I’m operating at 60%

  257. Aristotle, Praying for you. Sounds like you should take Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin as soon as possible as your symptoms sound pretty serious. Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are 2 meds that have proven very effective in the treatment of Covid time and again. DO NOT take Remdesivir as this drug has been proven useless and expensive.

    Dr. Brian Tyson, a California doctor, has healed over 1,700 patients with Covid all with great success. Here is his contact info again:

    Brian Tyson, M.D.
    1-760-592-4351 or 1-619-349-2347

    Please keep us posted.

    God bless!

  258. Aristotle, I have prayed for you.

    I got Covid in mid-November, and my recovery took until mid-January, so I’m hopeful you will soon be at the tail end of this. My wife had mild symptoms at the same time as I was sick, and her sense of smell is just starting to return.

  259. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys. I got covid in late February. Ever since then I’ve have had insomnia, aches and pains, ulcers in my stomach, high blood sugar, fatigue, depression, etc. For some reason I have to eat a high amount of calories every day (3100) to be full and not have hunger pains. Some hair on the left side of my head fell out. This is all pretty depressing. I have not been able to workout for about 8 weeks because even the slightest amount of stress will cause me to not be able to sleep. My quality of life has just really gone downhill. Please pray for me. I truly feel like a shell of my former self

  260. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    William. Praying for your son’s cousin’s maternal grandmother

  261. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying William. We can be so selfish in our flesh. May we all remember how important to love others as ourselves.

  262. William, I have prayed for her.

  263. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

    Please pray for my son’s cousin’s maternal grandmother who is in the hospital in very critical condition. She is in her 80’s and could die at any time where her heart and her kidneys are failing. She was the one whom we shared the gospel with recently where she believed and got saved.

    Her health condition has gotten worse due to her family’s (daughters and son in law’s negligence in taking care of her sooner.) It is because of her immediate family’s preoccupation with their own agendas and their selfishness that has resulted in her health deteriorating so fast.

    At this point, it would take a miracle from God to save her. Her family members can be the epitome of selfishness and negligence.

    Please pray for her. Thank you.

  264. Holly, I am thankful for the improvement in your husband’s health and the good reports that he has gotten.

  265. Holly Garcia Held

    John – glad to hear about the surgery, thank the dear Lord.

    Praise in our lives, As I mentioned before, I’ve used melatonin in differing applications. It’s an antiviral, antibiotic properties, anticancer, antifungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and even cardio protective.

    My husband has a number of things wrong with him, one is Valley fever, sometimes called Cocci. It is a fungus in the lungs. He has been on an anti-fungal since he went into the hospital at the end of 2017, where they made him bleed internally and he ended up on a vent (from a lung biopsy on blood thinners). Anyways, he has been taking Melatonin since October, initially only 10 mg. at nighttime but as we read up on more, we saw it even deals with dementia/alzheimers well when taken with DHA, but a certain amount, so he started on that and the higher dose melatonin.

    Long story short, we also read it helped with cancer, so we increased for both, he had a PSA check coming up when we returned. His number dropped 1 point, so his doctor felt it had to be a faulty test, he was a little perplexed. So he ordered a petscan and Jason just went in for that, as well as to see his pulmonologist (who is working with the infectious disease doctors on his Valley fever).

    The petscan came back completely clear, no hot spots. (he has had deep melanoma’s surgically removed with the check of his lymph nodes also).

    The Lung X-rays for the first time also came back clear. He has looked better very slowly over the years (they first discovered nodules in 2012-13 but didn’t correctly identify it until beginning of 2018 at my insistence).

    So, two good reports, we are praising God and also believe this molecule, which God made in our bodies, and our bodies continue to make has played a part.

  266. John, I am thankful that your surgery went well, and have prayed for your quick recovery.

  267. Surgery went well! Thank you all for your prayers!

  268. Holly Garcia Held

    Tom, praying also that the Lord would meet your family’s needs, as well as His body’s. Love in Christ.

  269. Holly Garcia Held

    John, praying for this today.

  270. Tom, I have prayed for you and your family, and your church friends.

  271. Lots of new prayer requests here, and been praying for you guys tonight. Please pray for me and my family and Church friends with various needs. Thanks, God bless.

  272. John, Praying for you. I recently had prostate surgery as well back in February of this year and I was nervous too. However, once they give you the general anesthesia you are going to be able to relax and fall asleep and you won’t feel a thing.

  273. John, I have prayed that your surgery and recuperation will go well, and that you will not be overly nervous about it.

  274. I am going in for my prostate surgery this morning. Please pray for me as I am nervous. Thank you all!

  275. Holly Garcia Held

    Yes, I lost count on the institutes, but Calvin fawned on Augustin(e) and sometimes referred to him as Augustus, but he fawned over him. Wolves tend to hang together.

  276. Holly, You made a good point regarding RC about how they perverted the word “repent”. As you may already be aware of, Calvinism/Lordship Salvation is basically RC repackaged as Calvinism spawned from Augustine of Hippo, who is the father of both RC and Calvinism.

    All 5 points of the Calvinistic “tulip” can be found in Augustine’s heretical writings in “City of God”, but with each point going under a different title/heading. John Calvin’s name is affixed to the false teachings of Augustine as Calvin idolized Augustine and incorporated his false teachings into his own writings in his “institutes”. It should come as no surprise as RC’s definition of “repent” is the same as Calvinism/Lordship Salvation’s definition.
    Birds of a feather.

  277. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying for your dad Justin to come into a clear understanding. The Word has a way of doing that. Reading through the book of John over and over is what initially made my mind wonder where the word repent was. Why wasn’t it there? Especially since its purpose for being written was stated was so we would believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and in believing we would have life (eternal) through his name.

    I knew there was another reason. Then I found Ralph Lindstrom, he had a series on repentance, and explained the difference between transliteration and translation and that was a word that should have had a new word made for it, like baptizo – baptize.

    The RC church had a lot to do with how the word metanoeo/metanoia and metamelomai or ametamelomai became repent/penance/do penance, penitent, etc. One of the words does mean regret/sorrow but not used any times where eternal life is spoken of. And why wasn’t that made into a different word anyways? Seems a little strange to me.

    Gay means another thing in the last half century. But it seems appropriate the enemy wants to wist whatever is good and make it bad. God created man and woman and saw that it was good. So Satan of course wants to change that.

  278. William, you bring up a good point.

    Corruption of language is part of how messages become corrupted. For example, we have seen words like “vaccine” and “woman” take on new meanings in just the last couple of years. The latter example saw our new supreme court justice left unable/unwilling to give an opinion as to what a “woman” is. She did say “I’m not a biologist,” which, in a back-handed way acknowledges that it is subject to a an objective, biological definition.

    LS has also corrupted “believe,” “faith,” “grace” and other biblical terms to fit their false gospel of works.

  279. John, In regards to the phrase “turning from sin”, much of the confusion comes from the fact that the word “repent” has 3 different words in Greek with 3 different definitions and the fact that Lordship Salvation has totally hijacked and redefined this word.

  280. Justin, sometimes people have heard things so often that they have incorporated them into their lexicon without even being aware.

    It’s good that you are aware of the confusion that can arise when turning from sin becomes commingled with the gospel message. In addition to eliminating confusion in sharing the gospel, keeping our language clear and biblical helps keep us grounded and helps to get other believers better grounded in the truth.

  281. Justin Beard

    Thank you, William, Aristotle, John, Holly and any others who have prayed. William- he definitely has a vascular issue. He had an artery previously replaced in one leg already and he’s waiting to hear back on the other. Holly-Thanks for the info on the melatonin. I’ll look into that and mention it to him. I know my Dad is a Believer in Christ, but he still gets hung up on some of the turning from sin doctrines sometimes.

  282. Holly Garcia Held

    Justin, praying for your dad. Staph and walking is hard, so really important to get the infection cleaned up and then the circulation which he can help by elevation and some other methods (which I’ll let him look up since I’m always giving advice — the mom of many in me). I know I’m always touting melatonin for infection, they’ve done lots of studies on it. You can look up gram negative/positive studies with melatonin, or just search staph and melatonin, you will find plenty. They’ve had success with it with varying infections but seemingly particularly with staphy. Some of them will even tell you how much per kilogram of weight, so there is some ciphering to do. Some will tell you take at least 3 times a day and heavier dose at night. Praying for wisdom, and good doctors and encouragement for you all.

  283. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you Holly, William and Justin

  284. Justin, I hope you have a Happy Easter as well.

  285. Justin, Sounds like your dad has a vascular issue and needs vascular surgery which is an outpatient procedure that is minimally invasive. My father in law had the exact same problem and had the surgery done recently and is doing fine. Prior to that, he could barely walk and was in pain. Praying for the best for your dad. God bless!

  286. Justin Beard

    Thank you John, I appreciate your prayers and I know he does as well. Have a Happy Easter!

  287. Justin, I have prayed for your father Kyle – that God would comfort and encourage him, and give him relief from his pain and circulatory issues, and heal his staff infection.

  288. Justin beard

    Hello all, hope you’re all doing well. I’d like to ask if anyone would say a prayer for my father Kyle. He has a lot of health problems right now, but the most painful for him is his legs. He has poor circulation and a staph infection in one of them. I know it’s weighing heavily on him as he has asked me twice today if I would get others to pray for him. Thank you for your time, prayers and consideration. Justin

  289. Holly and John, Thank you, It’s been a very tough battle for me lately as I’m getting older, First, it was my prostate, now it’s my esophagus, allergies, and my persistent cough which is very disruptive. My coughing sometimes wake me and my wife up in the middle of the night and sometimes in the early morning hours where she has trouble falling back to sleep. My wife says my coughing sounds like a loud barking dog. Old doggie.

  290. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying William. I weaned off of Pantaprazole, trying to stick with after meal digestive enzymes (papaya tablets) and also Bromelain is helpful for some. Praying you might find some relief. This seems to be a heavy time of the year for allergy sufferers.

  291. William, I have prayed for you regarding your health concerns.

  292. Dear brothers and sisters in the faith, Please pray for me, I’m currently suffering from a combination of health problems: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) which includes persistent coughing after meals coupled with excess mucus in the throat which causes me to have to constantly clear my throat all throughout the day. I also have hay fever allergy which creates a post nasal drip aggravating my persistent cough. I’m taking an acid reducer called Omeprazole and an antihistamine called Zyrtec which does not always work. Please pray for me, Thank you all.

  293. Holly, I have prayed for your neighbors.

  294. Holly, Praying for your new neighbors that there will be an opportunity where you can share the gospel with them. There are so many people dying and getting seriously and permanently injured from these V, where mainstream media is going any which way possible to cover it all up. People are not waking up, but listening to lies. The truth is being treated as “misinformation” and the lies are being treated as truth. Isaiah 5:20.

    My son’s friend just recently died in his 30’s. He just dropped dead suddenly from a heart attack. He had no history of health problems according to his family. We highly suspect that he took the jab as well. My son also knows of someone’s wife who had no history of health problems and in her 40’s where she just suddenly died in front of the T.V. set shortly after getting the jab.

  295. Holly, I have prayed for your new neighbors.

  296. Holly Garcia Held

    Please pray for my new next door neighbors, haven’t met them yet, early 40s. Third person I know who ended up with a brain bleed. I only know the two had a \/ I do not know about my neighbor. My son-in-law is taking care of their dogs. I do not even know their names. So pray this may be an opportunity, pray he may make it.

  297. Holly, Thanks for the update. Will continue to pray for them.

    God bless!

  298. Holly Garcia Held

    Thanks for asking William!

    Holly, Can you give me an update for the following that I’ve been praying for? Been wondering about their current situations.

    1) Gifford – he is recovered, and is working again. The most important thing to me is that he would get back in the right place with the Lord.

    2) Em is still suffering. My friend is too. They are in Arkansas, and the wheels are turning slowly. She did at least get a port so that makes things a little teeny bit more bearable. Home health care nurses. She is in her 30s, it just is so hard. But both of them have a strong faith and are taking each moment.

    3) Adam’s friend has gone through rehab and doesn’t talk about anything of what happened now. Last I saw she was trying to walk with a walker, I can see she is using her arms. Her last few posts have been about her boyfriend. Haven’t seen anything from her mom either. But she is out of rehab, and home.

  299. Holly, Can you give me an update for the following that I’ve been praying for? Been wondering about their current situations.

    1) Gifford – his recovery from the car accident and from his surgery.

    2) Your friend’s daughter named “Em” who had the inability to eat and drink fluids.

    3) Adam’s friend who took the vaccine and suffered paralysis from the waist down and is now in rehabilitation.



  300. Aristotle, That’s good news. I’m glad to hear that your friend’s dog is recovering. It sounds like she had an ear infection.

  301. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey William. Dog is fine. She ended up having something called vestibular disease. She’s healing now thank you all for the prayers

  302. Aristotle, How is your friend’s dog “Heaven”? Is she okay?

  303. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for God to help you Marcel

  304. Johninnc, Holly, Helen, William thank you so much for your prayers!

  305. Holly Garcia Held

    Marcel, praying for you all. Asking for your protection, and your peace. We know He does not give us a spirit of fear. Try to just pray for each little thing, take some time in His Word. It’s what we need, and it won’t be taken from us.

  306. Marcel, Praying for you and your parents. It sounds like a high probability that one of the nursing staff who came over stole your mother’s necklace. There are indeed people who work in the nursing field who are dishonest and have ulterior motives who love to prey upon the elderly by coming into their homes and steal valuables when they get the chance. I’ve heard of stories of scam artists in a disguise who enter the homes of the elderly where they are duped into signing some kind of agreement and the next thing they know, their bank accounts go down to zero.

    There are all kinds of scams going on where the elderly and those who are mentally and physically handicapped get victimized.

  307. Praying for strength and protection for you all, Marcel.

    Sent from Mail for Windows

  308. Marcel, I have prayed for you and your parents. I have prayed that God would protect you from harm, and that you would not be victimized by the nefarious designs of anyone with whom you and your parents might interact in your home.

    I have prayed that you would not let yourself be troubled and that you would remember that God is your strength.

  309. Please pray for me and my parents, i do not know, if it is the nursing people,
    or how this is done. my mother had a necklace, now this dissapeared, and because she is disabled, she could not done this herself. This triggers me. i felt better mentally, but now i have fear. i feel this is kind of gaslighting of the enemy again. some people call this micro-vandalism too.
    this is not a joke. Please pray for my parents and me, that if there are evil people, who just play to be nice outwardly, but inwardly might be dangerous wolves, who come in our house to be “helpful”, that Jesus makes the evil ones of the nursing people, or who else comes here, that they go away, and that they can not harm my and my parents body, mind and soul. I really have
    mental breakdown today. i did take benzodiapin, because of the fear. i know, we should overcome fear better through the holy spirit balone, but i am weak.
    Please help me, and pray for me and my parents for protection, and that our faith becomes stronger and maybe jesus filles us more with his holy spirit!

  310. Somehow I sent my comment before ready, but praying in understanding William. One day we’ll be resurrected to far better than what we could imagine.

    Aristotle, how horrible. Praying.

  311. William, I hear you. I was into sports heavily when younger and into my mid 30s, we loved soccer, and I also played power volleyball. I wanted to be an MD, or so I thought. I was very young when I entered college, no direction, just got certified in Athletic training and never did a thing with it, except it helps for wrapping with arthritis lol. My husband has psoriatic and osteoarthritis along with ankylosing spondylitis, we keep trying different things since he can no longer take the biologics after the Valley Fever.

  312. Aristotle, Praying for you friend’s dog that she will have a full recovery. Dogs are amazing and they are the most loyal and they are one of the best pets to have. Man’s best friend.

  313. Aristotle, I have prayed that God would comfort your friend and that He will relieve the dog’s suffering and heal her.

  314. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you William. Can you guys please pray for my friends dog? Her name is heaven. He thinks she was poisoned. Taking her to the vet now but she’s dizzy, can barely walk and is throwing up grass. Please pray she makes it through

  315. Holly, Thanks for the advice. My knee is doing much better. I went to see an orthopedic surgeon and had some x-rays done and the results were that I have arthritis and what I experienced the other day was a bad flare up that just came and went. She asked if I wanted a cortisone shot, but I declined as the effects from those shots are only temporary and after a period of time I would have to go back for another one.

    Also, the weather affects my knees. I have heard stories from the elderly where their joints would just suddenly swell up in intense pain just before a heavy rainstorm. I remember seeing a cartoon depiction of 3 elderly men sitting on a bench on a porch where one had a swollen elbow, another had a swollen hand, and the 3rd had a swollen knee. One of the elderly men says, “Look’s like a squall is a comin!” to which the other 2 respond by saying, “Yep, look at my hand!”, and another says, “Sure thing, look at my elbow!” Premonition.

    Knees wear out as we get older. I used to be a long distance runner some 35 years ago and I think it was the running that created this cumulative buildup of wear and tear. The human body is like an automobile where parts wear out here and there after so many miles.

  316. Holly Garcia Held

    Praying for your knee William, and thanking God for that wonderful news. May I suggest kinesiology tape and a full knee support wrap? Cheap and easy. The one I have found that I like the best is Physix Gear Kinesiology Tape Pro. You can look up a full support wrap for K-tape on youtube. It’s literally 4 strips, not hard to do, takes a little practice, but the support is miraculous (I’ve had knee surgery for a bucket handle tear on my meniscus). I still swell if doing too much, but that has made all the difference.

  317. That’s fantastic news, William! I’m looking forward to sharing this victory of God’s grace at work in your family’s lives.
    And, I have prayed for your knee situation. God bless.

  318. William, thanks for sharing this wonderful news!

    I am thankful that you have a heart for sharing the gospel and that you were able to witness to your son’s cousin’s maternal grandmother.

    I have prayed for your knee to improve.

  319. Holly, John, and Aristotle, We were able to share the gospel with my son’s cousin’s maternal grandmother. She is in her 80’s, and in ailing health and could barely walk. She has never heard of Jesus. We shared with her alone the best we can explaining that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came in human flesh over 2000 years ago to die for the sins of all mankind, was buried, and on the 3rd day resurrected.

    We explained to her that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life, that is, after death from this earthly life, a person who has believed will not be subjected to eternal condemnation, but have everlasting life. We explained to her the best we could in her native language which is Chinese as she doesn’t speak English at all.

    She at first said, “No, I don’t believe”, but when we told her that my son’s maternal grandmother who is also in her 80’s believed and got saved last year, she was surprised and said that she also wanted to believe and be saved. She asked that if she believes, does that mean that she has to go to church every Sunday and fulfill religious rituals, vows, works, etc,??

    We of course said, “NO” and told her that eternal life is a FREE GIFT that is not of our works that is freely offered by Jesus Himself to those who just believe in Him in their hearts. Her face suddenly lit up where she then said, “Yes, I believe”, and then me and my wife prayed for her where we asked the Lord that she will be able to experience His grace in her life.

    I can still remember last year when my son’s maternal grandmother (my mother in law) believed and got saved where she just suddenly out of the blue called us up over the phone several weeks later and told us that she experienced the grace of God in her life for the very first time.

    My mother in law has a long history of skin rashes that gets passed onto her from her husband whenever he has a rash. This would happen all the time, but for some mysterious reason, her husband’s last rash outbreak did not affect her at all and she felt very astonished by that and felt that was God’s grace in her life.

    Also, something very strange happened to me today after we shared the gospel with my son’s cousin’s maternal grandmother. This was after we prayed. My right knee suddenly gave out on me and now I can barely walk and is very painful and swollen. It’s not a full knee dislocation, but it feels like it could be a partial patellar dislocation. I probably won’t go to work tomorrow, but will have to call my doctor to have it checked out. Even if it is a partial knee dislocation, it is worth it as we were able to share the Free Grace gospel to her for the very first time. Please pray for my knee.

  320. Holly Garcia Held

    Hi William, will be praying. Maybe ask her if she’d like to have the chance to see an ancestor, (maybe some believed), and Jesus is that only possible chance.

    Oftentimes they think Jesus is ‘good’ or a ‘good prophet’. I saw one that was talking about that not too long ago, a native Indian speaking of ancestors and sweats and such and even brought up Jesus. Praying she might have her heart opened to heed what you all say.

    This is my oldest daughter’s 4th, 6 down to newborn. My next daughter has a 2 yr. old and is pregnant. My next daughter has a 5 year old down to a 2 year old (3 daughters). My two stepsons have a total of 5, so technically 13.

  321. William, I have prayed that you, your wife, and your son will have the opportunity to share the gospel with his cousin’s grandmother and that the Lord would lead you in your approach.

  322. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you Holly and william

  323. Please pray for me, my wife, and son as we will be going over to my son’s cousin’s grandmother’s house to share the gospel with her on Sunday. No one in her family is a believer, but are into idol and ancestor worship. Her health is ailing and we want to share the gospel with her hoping that she will believe and be saved before she passes. We plan to share the gospel with her alone.

  324. Holly, Congratulations to your daughter and to you! I remember when my son was born, he was also like a heat generating snuggle bunny. That was decades ago and now he is 35 and a muscle generating bodybuilder. No anabolic steroids, but natural.

    Praying for your new grandson that he be off the oxygen. Is this your first grandchild?

  325. Holly, he sounds absolutely precious.

  326. Holly Garcia Held

    Thank you, Me too. He is like a heat generating snuggle bunny. Getting lots of cuddling time. We go home in a few days.

  327. Holly, thanks for the exciting news about your new grandchild. I have prayed for him to be able to get off of the oxygen soon.

  328. Hi all. My daughter had her baby, 9’11, little boy name Myles Gilbert (Gilbert was my husband who is with the Lord, her father). Anyways, he had water on his lungs, so he was in NICU and came home on Oxygen. He is with the Home Health care nurse now. I think he’s been doing great in the last week. So hoping soon he can come off the O2. Praying you are all doing well. These are exciting times, hard to live through but we know what times and seasons we are in. Praying for you all in each decision. Just keep giving it up to Him, praying for each little thing, and trusting in the One who Preserves us. Love in Christ.

  329. Yerbae’, The new protocol is that the Covid test needs to be scheduled one day before the surgery date. You should wait to get the results before deciding whether or not to cancel.

  330. I started making the appointment for the surgery and then cancelled when they said I still have to get the cvd test before I go in. I guess there is now way around it though, if I want to get relieve from this. William, I see you had to have the test also, which helps me with the decision, but it still makes me feel apprehensive.

  331. Yerbae’ Thanks for sharing and glad to hear that you were at peace talking with your doctor about the laser surgery. They made me wear a mask also, but the mask is removed prior to surgery and they put a breathing tube in my mouth. Also, one day prior to surgery the hospital required that I get tested for Covid, but thank God the test came back negative. That is the current protocol prior to surgery in all hospitals now. If one tests positive, then the surgery will be cancelled and postponed until the patient tests negative again. What a hassle!

    Please keep us updated. Praying for you.


  332. yerbea’, thanks for the update and I am glad you have been at peace.

    I am right there with you on the mask rules. I have only worn masks on a small handful of occasions, all having to do with medical care. I agree that it is about control, and I think the willingness of so many to go along with the masks provided our governments with tremendously valuable information as to how well their fear/control campaign has been going – kind of a non-secret ballot, if you will.

  333. Thank you all for your prays for my appointment! I was at peace, talking with the Dr. about what’s next. I did get upset for them still requiring people to wear a mask though. Can’t help it when you know what is really going on, and they don’t have any peer reviewed data proving masks work to prevent the spread of a virus. It’s all about control!
    William, Thank you for the encouragement! I have decided to go with the laser surgery also. It helps to hear what a big improvement it has been in your life. I am looking forward to the same.

  334. Yerbae’, I’m praying for you. I didn’t know that you already had the Urolift procedure done. I was thinking about having that done, but my urologist said that procedure would not be beneficial for me. I’ve read many reviews up on YouTube from men who had the procedure, but many have reported that the procedure is useless and some feel that it is still experimental.

    Laser surgery has been very beneficial to me even though it’s been almost 2 weeks. The before and after results is just like night and day. I would encourage you to have it done. I understand your nervousness and anxiety as I was in the exact same state of mind weeks before the procedure. I had general anesthesia which was great.

    Make sure you make it clear to your urologist that you want GENERAL anesthesia which will put you to sleep where you won’t feel a thing. After the procedure I had to wear a catheter for 24 hours and it was removed the very next day. The catheter is a little uncomfortable and there is some burning pain after removal when you go relieve yourself, but the pain is tolerable and you’ll get used to it. You will also have some bleeding for several weeks afterwards which is normal and expected.

    Hang in there, you’ll be fine. : ) I lived through it, so can you. : )

    Please keep us posted on your progress so we can pray for you.

  335. Holly Garcia Held

    Yerbae, I had to laugh at the knocking out. Most people are worried about that. You take some in the daytime, your body makes it then too. But you’d have to do some reading yourself. The reason it put you to sleep at night is because of the dark. I take it daily with Niacin to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. I take 10-12 (depending on what’s handy) of melatonin, 2-3 times a day and more at night (20-30).

    People would ask if it made me sleepy, and I think maybe initially I expected it would so I thought maybe I was. But taking it on a regular basis and reading more, I understand it a little more. Whatever you decide, we’re praying, and that’s the most important. I think we would have chosen differently initially on our decisions on some things (had we done a little more homework). praying for wisdom and peace.

  336. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey yerbae praying for you to be at peace and yes I live in Chicago. I’m 64 miles from Kenosha Wisconsin

  337. yerbae’, I have prayed that you would be at peace about talking to your doctor.

  338. Aristotle, glad your feeling better! You are in ILL right? I live in MKE, are you close to WI?
    William, I am going in today to see about have laser Surgery done on prostate, which I have been putting off, because of nervousness. I had the Urolift procedure done but that didn’t help much, so now I am checking out the next option. My PSA is around 10 – 13 non cancerous.
    Holly, I am taking about 6mg of melotonin at night to help me sleep and it knocks me out pretty good, I can’t imagine taking 60mg, I don’t think I would be able to awake.
    Please pray for my nervousness to go to the doctor to talk about possible prostate surgery. Thank you all!

  339. Holly, The T.V. shows of the 70’s were the best in comparison to the T.V. shows of today. The shows back then had substance like “The Brady Bunch”, “Marcus Welby, M.D.” “The Waltons”, and “Little House on the Prairie.” Those were the good old days.

  340. Aristotle, Thank you. Glad to hear you are recovering. You now have natural immunity which is the best immunity.

  341. Aristotle, I am glad you are feeling encouraged. Regarding the COVID recovery, it took me several weeks to feel back to normal.

  342. Aristotle Vargo

    Praying for your recovery William and your husband Holly. Thanks for the words of encouragement. I have studied and I do feel much better. Still feeling after effects of covid but I’m ok. Love you all so much. Thank you Johninnc and Tom. You guys are all really great to be around 🙂

  343. Holly Garcia Held

    William, Hi, yes 🙂 That was the reference. Seems surreal it’s been that long ago.

  344. Holly, The $6 million dollar man? That brings back old memories of my childhood years back in the 70’s when I watched the “$6 million dollar man” starring Lee Majors as Colonel Steve Austin – The Bionic Man.

  345. Thanks William! He has had cancer (not only of the prostate) and has been treated. He goes for a PSMA tomorrow. We are at peace. God knows. He’s had deep melanomas surgically removed several times and the lymph node biopsies, and pacemakers (2) and aortic valve surgery (pig and then mechanical) so he’s a $6 million dollar man 🙂

    God is good!

  346. Holly, Praying for your husband. The PSA can be a tricky thing. The 1st category are men who have a high PSA, but don’t have prostate cancer, the 2nd category are those who have a high PSA score, but do have cancer. The 3rd category are those who have a low PSA score, but don’t have cancer and the 4th category are those who have a low PSA score, but do have cancer.

    I once scored a 10 on the PSA and the doctor thought I had cancer. I had to go in for a biopsy which came back negative.

  347. Holly, i prayed for your husband, you and the doctors

  348. Aristotle, the Word was written so we could have solid assurance and continue in faith with what we initially believed about the gospel.

    Besides being gifted with the free gift of eternal life (Rom 5:15-ff; 6:23), we are born again of an incorruptible Seed, the Word of God (1 Pet 1:23). Our flesh is still corrupt (Rom 7:15-25) but one day we will be made completely whole when resurrected. We are made members of His body (Eph 5:30-32; 1 Cor 12:20-25). Heb 7:25 says we are Saved to the Uttermost.

    We are given/gifted to Jesus, placed into His Kingdom (John 6:39-40; John 10:28-30; John 17:11, 24; Col 1:13) when we believe and we will never be lost, we have been passed already from death unto life, dark unto light.

    Do you believe Who Jesus is? Do you believe what He did for you on the cross? Do you believe He rose again from the dead proving it was His victory over sin, death and the grave. He is God who had the power to take His life back up again (1 Cor 15:54-57; John 10:17-18). When it happens, whether or not you are of ‘little faith’ or ‘unbelieving’ afterwards as were His disciples, you are still sealed with that Spirit of promise until the day of redemption (Eph 1:13-14; 4:30).

  349. Holly, I have prayed for your husband and for you.

  350. Praying for you all here. My husband had radiation on his prostrate, and they’ve discussed doing more as his PSA has been rising. Last test it was 3.9, so I had him increase his melatonin (he is now taking 60 mg. per day). His next visit with his urologist would then be a discussion on what to do next if it had gone up again.

    It had gone down to 2.9. The doctor’s suggestion was that the tests had been done at two different labs (3 months apart). My husband didn’t even think on the melatonin and still thinks it is a fluke.

    I’ll keep you updated, but praying. Lots of studies on the anti-carcinogenic effects of the melatonin molecule.

  351. Aristotle, Please don’t worry about your salvation. If you have ever believed in Christ and His finished work on the cross by faith alone apart from works, then you are saved whether you feel it or not. Our emotions and feelings are in a constant state of fluctuation. Eternal life is a free gift. You are sealed with the unbreakable seal of the Holy Spirit. A person can lose their assurance of salvation somewhere down the line, BUT they cannot lose salvation itself.

    Ephesians 1:13 – In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

    2 Corinthians 1:22 – Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

    Hope this helps, God bless!

  352. Aristotle, Praying for you, brother. If you have come down with Covid, always remember that your chances of recovery are at 99%. There are the proven meds of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine that will heal when taken early. If you have Covid, it’s best to nip it in the bud early.

    I know of a doctor who has healed over 1,700 covid patients all with great success using those 2 proven meds. His name is Dr. Brian Tyson.

    Brian Tyson, M.D.

    Dr. Tyson can also be reached through Silver Strand Urgent Care at 1-619-349-2347. There is a $125 over the phone consult fee with Dr. Tyson. I also believe that Dr. Tyson does appointments via WebCam.

    Dr. Tyson can refer you to another doctor in your area that is much closer. The thing to remember is to go with a doctor that is not going along with the narrative. Many doctors, nurses, medical personnel are being threatened if they don’t go along with the narrative and many are getting fired for prescribing the proven meds of Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, etc.

  353. Hi Aristotle, I prayed for you this morning and left you a message on your other social media account. Go check it out, brother 😉

  354. Aristotle, I have prayed that you would be healed and that you would not be anxious.

    It is always good to remember that Jesus says, unequivocally, that anyone who has believed in Him as Savior has passed into spiritual life, and thus has eternal life that can never be lost or forfeited.

    John 5:24: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

  355. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys please pray for me. Chills, fever body ache. Felt like I might faint and really got worried about my salvation. Please pray for me I’m scared right now

  356. William, thanks for the update. I will pray for your full and quick recovery!

    And, thanks for the encouragement of our soon transformation.

  357. John, Marcel, and Yerbae’, Thanks so much for your prayer support! The surgery was successful and I’m back at home recovering. The first couple of days was rough as I had to wear a catheter and there was pain and bleeding, but this is generally expected and normal. Getting older is no fun. I feel like an old automobile with parts failing here and there. : (

    The good news is that at the Pre-Trib Rapture, we will all be instantly transformed into new eternal glorious bodies of flesh and bone just like Jesus’s body which is the prototype of what is to come. It will be an eternal body that will no longer experience illness and pain. : )

    Luke 24:39 – Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

    1 John 3:2 – Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM, for we shall see him as he is.

    Philippians 3:21 – Who shall change our vile body, that it may be FASHIONED LIKE UNTO HIS GLORIOUS BODY, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

    1 Corinthians 15:51-52 – 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 – 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

  358. Praying for you William! I have to face that also pretty soon, so I can relate to the being nervous feelings.

  359. William, i prayed for you too, that you have a successful surgery, a quick recovery, and that you tolerate it well.

  360. William, I have prayed for you to have a successful surgery and quick recovery, and for you to tolerate it well.

  361. Dear brothers and sisters in the faith, Please pray for me as I will be going in for prostate surgery tomorrow morning. Please pray that the procedure will go well and that I tolerate it well and also have a successful recovery. I’ll be out from work until 2/25. I have to admit I’m feeling a little nervous and scared. : (

  362. Daniel, praying for your sister. Best remedy is to share the Scriptures with her that speak of eternal life/security.

  363. Daniel, I noticed that your sister’s errant beliefs are no doubt the result of exposure to Calvinist and Arminian theology which are both false. Both false doctrines are notorious in going to passages like Psalm 51:11, Hebrews 6:4-8, Hebrews 10:26-27, Hebrews 10:38-39, John 15:2,6, Revelation 3:5, just to name a few where they will take these passages out of context and twist them and then impose their own philosophical presuppositions into the text in their attempts to “prove” that Christians can lose their salvation.

  364. Hi Daniel, Thanks for sharing. I have come across many people like your sister. She errs in her belief that Christians can lose their salvation. No Christian can lose their salvation even if they wanted to. We are kept eternally secure because we have trusted in an UNFAILING SAVIOR who does not break His promise in His Word in spite of our failures and shortcomings – John 5:24, John 10:28-29, Ephesians 1:13, 2 Corinthians 1:22, Romans 8:38-39, 1 Corinthians 3:14-15, 2 Timothy 2:13.

    You should share with her that Judas Iscariot was never saved to begin with as he never believed. Judas primary interest was the love of money which got the best of him. The Bible is clear that Judas was unsaved as Satan later possessed him – Luke 22:3. Though later Judas repented, and came to his senses, he went to the wrong people to do that which did not and cannot save him – Matthew 27:3-5. Had Judas personally went to the cross where Christ was and repented there, then that would have been a different story.

    If a saved Christian denies the Holy Spirit out of rebellion and disobedience and persists in that state, then the person will incur God’s temporal chastisement in this life as a wake up call. The person will be “cut off”, but cut off in regards to FELLOWSHIP, not salvation. You should tell your sister that the HS can be GRIEVED – Ephesians 4:30, and QUENCHED – 1 Thessalonians 5:9, BUT the Holy Spirit will never leave Christian.

    Her encounter with “God” who supposedly told her to “repent of her sins” to be saved is obviously not coming from the true God of the Bible.

    Regarding bizarre dreams, there is a high probability that demonic entities of Satan are a heavy influencing factor. There are many people who have bizarre dreams where they encounter a spirit being claiming to come from God, etc, or hear messages that run counter to what the Bible teaches – 1 John 4:1.

    My mother once had an encounter with a “spiritual being” in her dream decades ago where the spirit told my mother that the lump in her body was “not cancerous”. However, many of my mother’s friends and relatives told her to go in for a biopsy to determine whether or not the lump is benign or malignant. She was hesitant at first and was relying upon what the “spirit” told her. My mother said that the spiritual being that she encountered had a very kind voice and comforting demeanor.

    She finally went in for a biopsy when the lump got bigger and the biopsy revealed that the lump was indeed CANCEROUS. It then immediately became obvious to my mother and everyone that the “spiritual being” that my mother encountered in her dream was a lying spirit of Satan who wanted the worst for my mother. My mother went in for surgery and then radiation treatments and God extended her lifespan for another 7 years, then she passed.

    I’ll pray for your sister, Daniel. Hope this helps, God bless!

  365. Daniel, we know that Christians have eternal life that can never be lost or forfeited.

    I have prayed for your sister, that if she knows Jesus as her Savior, she’ll grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus, and if not, that she will hear and understand the gospel that she might believe and be saved.

    If your sister is receptive to reading The Gospel booklet, I think it would benefit her:

    Click to access English-Display-Pkg-2014.pdf

  366. Hey guys, if you can tell me where my sister is wrong in this, i want her to have her eyes open. I think she believes in half-truths.

    I know she won’t listen to me due to the type of person she is, i am not sure if she is truly saved, if she believed in the gospel alone or she believes in the gospel while adding to it.

    She does believe that a Christian can go to hell and at one point while she was talking to a friend on the phone, she used judas as an example that a Christian can go to hell and was just like “ugh 😑”.

    She believes if you deny the holy spirit as a Christian, you’re cut off. 😒

    She told me that before she was a Christian, when she was in her teens or 20’s, she heard “god” say to her “repent of your sins”.

    She believes she is going to heaven, but i remember even satan can masquerade as coming from God.

    What do you say about people who have bizarre dreams and the whatnot? She falls into this category.

    Please pray for her, so she may know the truth.

  367. Prayed for you guys tonight

  368. Holly, Thanks for the update. Regarding Dr, Arnold’s brother Merle (younger or older?), we need to pray for him and get him on either Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. I am confused as to why he has come home with no treatments when there are in fact proven meds that can help save his life.

    In Illinois, recently a 71 year old Christian Chinese man from Hong Kong was visiting his daughter here in the U.S. almost died from Covid when the hospital that he was admitted to in Chicago refused to give him Ivermectin. His daughter who is an only child and MD physician sued the hospital and won the case where the judge ordered the hospital to administer Ivermectin to the dying 71 year old man. The man recovered almost IMMEDIATELY and is now doing very well despite the fact that he was actually dying in bed hooked up to a ventilator. That man is now back home with his family. The legal team helping this family are also Christian. Praise God!


    Holly, if you could pass the following information about Dr. Brian Tyson over to Dr. Arnold regarding his brother Merle, that would be great. Dr. Brian Tyson is a doctor here in the U.S. from Southern California who has healed over 1,700 covid patients with the proven meds of Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, etc, all with great success. Many patients have consulted with Dr. Tyson over the phone or via WebCam where the meds can be sent to patients.

    Dr. Tyson can also be reached through Silver Strand Urgent Care at 1-619-349-2347. There is a $125 over the phone consult fee with Dr. Tyson, but it’s worth it to save a human life.

  369. Holly, thanks for the update!

  370. Yankee Update about an hour ago:

    Yankee – “My fight with Covid”
    My first several days was a fight for life
    I thought Covid was something that could happened to everyone but me. The first week of January changed everything for me. My oxygen levels fell into the lower 70’s, I quickly found I couldn’t breathe. Betty called for the ambulance to take me to the emergency room at the VA Hospital.
    They informed me that I may have to go on the ventilator, to which I said, “If it looks like I must, just send me home to die with my wife.” My decision is not to recommend what others should or should not do. No, I have not taken the vaccine. Be careful in justifying or condemning those who disagree with your choices. My wife got Covid the same time and I did not know how bad she was doing. The same was to apply if I had a heart attack. No resuscitation. I knew that if I go, or if I stay, I am a winner either way. I know that I have Eternal Life and can rest in God’s choice either way. What peace!
    Phip 1:20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
    Phip 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
    Mel Quin, Greg Stier, Jim Scudder, Tom Cucuzza, Betty and Eddie Arnold, Louie Hernandez and a thousand others lit up FaceBook pleas to pray for Yankee. I prayed to the Lord, “Lord, I don’t need more time, unless you can use me.” I believe that the Lord has blessed me because of all the fervent prayers of so many righteous saints. I was in ICU for about 13 days and Rehab for 9 days.
    While I was struggling here in Tampa, I was informed that my brother, “Little Man”, (Merle Arnold) also came down with Covid19. He came home from the hospital to hospice care at home. It looks like he will be with the Lord in several days. Pray for his wife Cheryl and daughter, Michelle in Athens, Georgia.
    Thank you! Thank you! For all the prayers for me and my brother.
    After several weeks I was allowed to go to Rehab at the VA. The VA has been very good to me. The Doctors and nurses were outstanding. There were about 12-15 that trusted the Lord from those in ICU, MICU, and REHAB. In every room, I told them that I would do everything they said, but I requested they only do one thing. That was for them to please visit my website and watch my 4 minute video on how to go to Heaven. They did!
    Progress was hard work.
    When they told me to walk so far down the hall, I asked to walk further. When I was told to work the machine I am sitting in for 15 minutes, I asked to do it for 30. When they told me to do it the next day for 30 minutes, I asked to do it for 45.
    They were surprised when last Friday, when I was to be discharged, I was informed that I would not need oxygen tanks to go home. The picture shows me leaving without oxygen.
    I MET SUSAN in rehab. The day I walked into the dining room, this new lady came in to eat. It was just her and I. I asked her if she knew she had Eternal Life and would go to Heaven. I was surprised when she gave me all the right answers.
    The next night I found that she had trusted the Lord from my radio ministry in Tampa. I am on every weekday at 6pm on 910AM and 570AM. When I ask for financial support for the radio ministry, it’s for all those Susans out there. Would you pray for souls like Susan by helping to support the radio ministry. There are many preachers on radio, but few make the gospel clear.
    While Betty was having to face all the things going on, she was overcoming the Covid herself. My daughter, Trina was having issues of her own and couldn’t come down. My son, Eddie, made two trips from Georgia to be with his mom. He was there to assist Betty in helping me get adjusted to some new home conditions.
    I never knew the sun could feel so good, even with a little nip in the air. They say I won’t be doing too much for a couple months. I hope you don’t mind if I just lay around for a while. I did lose about 15 lbs. Please continue to pray for continued healing and for Yankee Arnold Ministries to continue the radio ministry.
    I would be glad to hear from you. email is best.
    I do not beg for funds, but I do believe you should know that if you invest for the sake of the lost, there will be fruit in your account. Yankee Arnold Ministries, Inc.

  371. Steve – I pray for the peace of Jerusalem. And I pray for the lost, both Jew and Gentile. He will turn His attention back to Israel I believe pretty quickly.

  372. Steve, I have prayed for your physical vision, and that God would continue to draw unbelievers to Him, including Jewish unbelievers, and that they would hear the gospel that they might believe and be saved.

  373. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Awesome Holly thanks for the update!

  374. I believe in Yeshua HaMaschiach/Jesus Christ/Jesus the Messiah, via grace alone, through faith alone plus nothing else ever, forever.
    I believed on/in the Lord, first in 1973. I never thought that in 2021 that I would be seeing the prophecies of scripture come to pass as we are seeing today.
    Please pray for my physical vision (RP) and for the salvation of my people Israel. If you discern any other areas please pray concerning those also. Thanks and God bless you chaveirim b’ Maschiach (brothers/sisters in Christ)
    (wonderful site by the way- a real faith builder)

  375. Holly, that’s great news!

    Thanks for the update.

  376. This update was a couple of hours ago:

    This is Betty with an update on Yankee.
    He is working really hard in his Physical therapy and Occupational therapy classes. He wants to come home.
    This week the Drs have said he will probably be coming home this Friday, if he continues on this path. He will still have his oxygen at home for a little while.
    YEA! YEA! YEA!
    This is all the goodness of the LORD! All the prayers of his family and friends have been heard and he is grateful for all of you.

  377. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying that you can endure the pain William

  378. Prayed for you too William.

  379. William, thanks for the update.

    I have prayed that God will deliver you through this ordeal and give you peace and rest.

  380. John and Aristotle, Thanks. I went to the doctor’s office today and the next available surgery date is February 16. In the meantime, please pray that God gives me strength to endure this painful nightly ordeal. The doctor prescribed another med for me to take in addition to the one I’m taking.

  381. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    So sorry about what you’re going through William. Praying for what you asked

  382. William, I am so sorry you are going through this, and that you are having a difficult time with your medical providers.

    I have prayed that God would comfort you, give you relief from your pain, help your nights to be more restful, and make your surgery available for you very quickly.

  383. Dear brothers and sisters in the faith,

    Please pray for me. I will be having prostate surgery soon. Please pray that my surgeon’s office will be able to schedule a surgery date as soon as possible because my condition is not getting any better. In fact, the meds that I’m taking are not really working. It’s been a very painful ordeal for me every night as I have to go to the bathroom at least 10 times in one night where my sleep is greatly disrupted.

    The surgeon’s office is a pretty crazy place where sometimes they don’t even answer the phone and somewhat irresponsible in their duties. Several weeks ago I called and waited on the phone for over an hour as I was in desperate need for meds. The secretary had submitted a request to my insurance for meds for me using a slow standard request when it should of been an expedited request.

    As a result of the slow request, this caused a big delay in my health insurance approving the meds that I badly needed. Each time I called my pharmacy they kept telling me that my insurance is not covering my meds. This happened 3 times, so in desperation I payed for the meds out of my own pocket. The meds worked the first couple of days, but after that they were not working. I finally received a confirmation letter of approval of the meds from my insurance a week later so now I’m filing for reimbursement.

    Please pray that the surgery date will be scheduled ASAP as I’m going through a lot of pain every night. There are moments when it is excruciating and just wearing me down. Thank you.

  384. William, there is an update on Youtube that was posted on January 12.

    It sounds like he is going to be in the ICU for a while longer. See below:

  385. Does anyone know how Dr. Arnold and his wife are doing? Is Dr. Arnold out of the hospital??

  386. Thank you all for your prayers!

  387. Praying for your protection, Marcel.

  388. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you marcel

  389. marcel, I have prayed for you and your family for protection.

  390. I need prayer for me and my family, heavy spiritual attacks, witchcraft, mindgames etc.. please pray for protection of me and my family!

  391. Many thanx, Holly!

  392. Holly, thanks for your prayers!

  393. Praying for all your needs today. For some joy and strengthening time in His Word. For protection and guidance for your families. God bless you all this Sunday.

  394. I am thankful that the US Supreme Court has blocked Biden’s OSHA mandate.

    It is still amazing to me that so many (most?) of our fellow citizens can’t see that the mandates are an attempt to fundamentally transform our form of government from a constitutional republic to a presidential dictatorship.We can see from the outraged reactions to the ruling from many of our fellow citizens that we are living among brainwashed authoritarians, who have very little regard for informed medical consent, free speech, or any other civil liberties. Fear and self-righteousness are powerful motivators! And, the deceit/feigned ignorance of certain of the Supreme Court “justices” is astounding.

    I am starting to see a flurry of large corporations announce sweeping “vaccine” mandates for their employees (for example, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, and Nike).

    It is well-known that the “vaccines” do not prevent infection nor transmission of COVID, yet the insistence that everyone get the shots to “protect others” continues.

  395. Aristotle, thanks for the info. It may be that the shortages we are starting to see either persist, or get worse, before getting better.

  396. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys just a heads up. Over 10,00 Canadian truckers will quit on January 15th due to Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates. We are also going to have a lot of U.S truckers quit on January 22nd due to bidens mandates. We are looking at 10’s of thousands of truckers quitting. This will be a huge problem for the supply chain. I would recommend buying some non perishable items like a 20lb bag of rice, beans, canned fish , peanut butter, water, etc…

    But also we remember how God sent the ravens to bring Elijah flesh and bread. We know that God gave the Israelites manna from heaven and we remember how God did not let the meal and oil run out until it rained for the widow and her son.

    God bless you all!

  397. Holly, I have prayed for the family whose grandfather died, and for God to heal those who are still sick.

    Our healthcare system has not gotten engaged in early treatment, for the most part, so people are wise to find alternatives.

  398. Been praying for Yankee. May I suggest to you all that you consider pre-ordering some of the protocol in advance? India and Canada are options. Here is my story. My kids all got it after Christmas (one who lives with me). My daughters double vaccinated and boosted family visited her and then a couple days later said she had tested positive. I immediately brought them over the Vitamin supplementation and Ivermectin. They say always take ivermectin with the zinc. It helps get it into your cells. So my daughter and her husband started right away on the protocol (for 5 days). I share so others can know. The amount was .2 x kg. of weight (about 45 kg. per 100 lbs.). If you are sicker, the frontline docs page says .4 or .6 per kg. of weight and the safety was no different. (we are all unV’d and take supplementation. My husband and I are fine, but we believe we probably had it).

    Long story short, my daughter is well about 5 days later. My son at home got it also, he is in about day 3, and also same protocol (yes he also tested positive). My other son-in-law and daughter in AZ were sick earlier when we were out of town, tested positive, same protocol, same story with rapid wellness, (early treatment though) and they are young. My son-in-law and daughter got it several months back, (live in another state) same protocol, SIL started late in the game (about 10 days in), so it did not work ‘quite’ as well, but he only took about 18 mg. of ivermectin a day, but he did get better, noticed the difference, and he was not getting better otherwise. He felt more comfortable taking it after talking to a doctor he knew so he became serious about it and got well quickly. They just visited his completely (but one) double vaxed and boosted family and sadly today his Grandfather died. Please pray for them.

    Now, my first daughter I mentioned, her SIL is STILL sick (please pray for her). She is taking steroids and Z-pak (zithromax or azithromycin). She was sick before my kids, and is still sick after. She wants to talk to my kids about ‘taking the vaccine’. (I kid you not, a head-shaker, complete blindness to the obvious). I have personally seen this many times, in those I know who were current with this particular shot.

    We cannot know much for a fact, because everything is kept secretive, and/or censorship, and dishonest and being driven by money. So I share this in the hopes it may help. I hope it is o.k. John since I know this is about prayer requests.

    Be ready, don’t fear. Order saline nasal washes, neti pots, etc. which help reduce the viral load, so does drinking frequently hot fluids (and cold for inflammation of the throat) and so does gargling. Look up doctors and get yourself informed for all forms of colds. Most of all, stay moving, stay in good help, and eat well. Stay in His Word (Ps 119:25,28). Love to you all!

  399. Mary, I am doing a lot better. Thanks so much for the update on Ralph and Betty!

    We still have the Pet Passages post, but we removed the link from the masthead. We have disabled comments on all of the posts that are more than five years old. Please see link below:


  400. Hi John, Happy new year sorry to hear you haven’t been well, just letting you know Ralph is doing a little better, he can’t talk on the phone but is texting, Betty is home with meds, she text me this morning.

    Wondering have you deleted your section on difficult verses.

  401. William, I just checked the youtube prayer request, and there is no update.

  402. Dear Brothers and Sisters, Does anyone know the current condition of Dr. Arnold? There was a case involving a Christian man, Keith Smith of York, Pennsylvania who had Covid and was admitted into the hospital ER, but was later transferred to the ICU when his oxygen levels dropped where he was unresponsive for 15 days and was put under sedation creating a drug induced coma. His wife, Darla, became desperate and wanted her husband to be on Ivermectin which the hospital fought against. She eventually had to fight a legal battle in court where she won and the judge ordered the hospital to administer Ivermectin to her dying husband via a feeding tube. Once he was on the Ivermectin, he started to improve, but unfortunately Keith died 1 week after receiving the Ivermectin. I believe that if Keith was given the Ivermectin sooner, he would have survived.

    Ralph Lorigo, the Buffalo, New York attorney who handled the legal case for Keith Smith speaks of the dangers of covid patients being put on ventilators. Lorigo states, “When you are placed on a ventilator, it means they (the hospital) have done their protocol and now it is wait-and-see. Your chances of getting better once on a ventilator diminish substantially. At the beginning of COVID, if you went on the ventilator, you had an 80-90% chance of NOT SURVIVING. It’s better now, but being on a ventilator can harm lungs. As you stay on that ventilator, your chances of survival diminish.”

  403. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying in agreement with you Johninnc. Praying for you William

  404. William, I am praying for you.

  405. John, On the same page with you and praying the same thing. Also, please pray for me. I will be seeing my urologist the first thing Monday morning.

  406. Praying in agreement with you, Johninnc

  407. I have prayed with you, joninnc.

  408. The US Supreme Court is hearing arguments today on the federal mandate for COVID vaccination requirements for employers with more than 100 employees, and all health care facilities.

    Please join me in praying that justice will be done, our Constitution upheld, that the plans of the evildoers who have stolen our freedoms will be thwarted, and that the evil mandates will be overturned.

  409. Praying for Ralph Arnold and Betty Arnold. Heavenly Father we pray that the hospital that he’s in will not be allowed to impose any insane covid protocols on him and we pray Lord for your divine intervention if that happens. Lord, we pray that Dr. Arnold will have a full recovery from Covid and have full natural immunity. We pray that Dr. Arnold be able to take the proven meds of Ivermectin, Hydroxycholoroguine, Zithromax, and Vitamin supplements of Vitamin D3, Zinc, etc. Lord, we also pray the same for Mrs. Arnold that she also have a full recovery. Lord, we pray this prayer for both Ralph and Betty in Jesus most precious name! Amen!

  410. Praying for Yankee and Betty.

  411. yerbae’, there is a youtube with a prayer request that Matt M recently posted here. Please see below:

  412. Please pray for Yankee and Betty Arnold. I heard they are both sick.

  413. DJ, FYI most people who get stricken with Covid have a 99.9% of recovery if they take the right meds for it in the very early stages of the disease. This fact is confirmed by many honest doctors including Dr. Simone Gold, Dr. Stella Immanuel, Dr. Brian Tyson, Dr. Harvey Risch, world renowned epidemiologist from Yale school, and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko. That is, one who is infected must contact an honest physician for treatment who is not going along with the wicked narrative being pushed by “Dr.” Fraud Fauci and his many associates.

    FYI, Dr. Brian Tyson has healed over 1,700 Covid patients all with great success, and Dr. Immanuel has healed over 350 Covid patients all with great success, etc, with the proven meds of Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Zithromax, Vitaman D3, and Zinc.

    Of course, the opposing side is going any which way possible running their misinformation campaign at bad mouthing and maligning the proven effectiveness of these precious meds by taking them off the shelves, banning threatening, censoring, and firing doctors who prescribe them to their covid patients. The world’s 2nd largest Hydroxychloroquine manufacturing plant in Taiwan exploded under very suspicious circumstances back in December 2020. Also, fraudulent “medical articles” have been written in reputable medical journals in their attempt to malign the effectiveness of these proven meds.

    Many hospitals are now being forced to push insane covid protocols even onto patients who don’t have covid. Covid patients who come in sick with breathing problems are put on a ventilator and given an expensive drug called Remdesivir that is basically useless and has been known to kill 25% of all covid patients. In the meantime, all the inexpensive and proven meds are being maligned and banned worldwide. Also, hospitals here in the U.S would get reimbursement if patients were listed as having covid-19 with pneumonia or put on a ventilator. Hospitals with Medicare covid 19 patients with pneumonia were reimbursed with $13,000 per patient and those who were put on a ventilator were reimbursed with $39,000 per patient. That’s a great way for the hospitals to get rich.

    I’m sure you are aware of the widespread chicanery that has been going in the medical system all over the world where Covid death counts are deliberately exaggerated by listing many non covid deaths on the death certificates as “covid.” There are patients who died of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, etc, that had nothing to do with covid, but cause of death is listed as “covid.” I’ve read that many of the PCR tests used for testing covid give off inaccurate results producing “false positives” which in turn panics the person into getting “vaccinated.”

    Then we have the many horrific deaths caused by the vaccines, but gets listed as “covid deaths” again to exaggerate the numbers to create unending fear mongering among the masses. Their hope is to terrify the unvaccinated into getting the jabs. This whole covid crisis has been deliberately orchestrated for the destruction of mankind using draconian measures.

    There was a video on either Rumble or Bitchute where a registered nurse discovered that they are mixing in placebos along with the actual vaccines. They are doing this so that it won’t be so obvious to everyone that genocide/population control is one of their agendas.

    In other words, they have it set up in such a way where many will die from these vaccines and many won’t. Deviously clever. Taking these vaccines is like playing Russian roulette because the general public, that is, us, have no way of knowing which are placebos and which are the actual vaccines in those vials. Many victims die right away after getting either the 1st or 2nd jab within hours, some die days later, some die weeks, and some die months down the line. It is the opinion of French nobel prize winner virologist Luc Montagnier that many who don’t die now will die 2 to 3 or more years down the line.

  414. DJ, it is sad that so many people are sick right now, including our brothers and sisters in Christ.

    My impression is that the political/medical complex has thwarted, or throttled early-stage treatments in favor of their preferred prophylactic measure (the “vaccines”) and hospitalization.

    It appears that the “vaccines” and masks have not done anything meaningful to stem the spread of the virus. The public overwhelmingly bought into the specious public health plan, and now the architects of that plan are trying to find scapegoats (the “unvaxxed”) on whom to place blame for their utter failure.

    Meanwhile, we can continue to pray for those who are sick, and provide comfort for them in any way we can.

  415. Thanks John, I see it now. I also noticed that more than one among our “Youtuber family” are now stricken with the virus. I am definitely praying, and thankful that even in the worst case, they are eternally secure in Christ. But I can’t help feeling sad and frightened.

  416. DJ, Holly’s site is back up.

  417. DJ, we heard from Holly about a week ago. I’m not sure why her site is down.

  418. That is scary about Renee, I am praying for her. Speaking of precious sisters in Christ, does anyone know if Holly is ok? Her website has been removed.

  419. Thanks William!

    I’ll correct it.

  420. John, Correction. That was chas’s wife. : ) Lol!

  421. William, I have prayed for Renee, that God would heal her, comfort her, and give her peace and rest.

  422. Thanks Chas.

    That’s good news for now on your wife’s work situation. I have prayed that she will not have to undergo the tests.

  423. Dear Brothers and Sisters, Please pray for my friend Renee who just came down with Covid and has had it for about 3 to 4 days. I recommended that she get on Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and Zithromax ASAP. Her immune system is weak as she has had so many illnesses in the past that took a toll on her.

    By the way, Renee is a Free Grace teacher on YT and she’s been a blessing to many. She has suffered intense persecution and oppression from demonic forces lately where her house burned down to the ground and lost 3 of her beloved pets.

    Please pray for her. Thanks!

  424. John…
    Glad to hear that you’re recovering. We continue to pray.

    An update on my wife’s workplace requirements: Though she was given notice on 11/22/21 that she would need to get jabbed or submit to expensive testing within 13 days of that notice, there has been no mention of the jab, mandates, testing or anything else related to C-19 at her work since. Whether it’s because of the Christmas rush and they didn’t want to risk losing employees (especially their best workers), the fact that the Omicron “variant” is much less severe than the previous “variant”, or if it has been because of Biden’s mandates getting slapped down by various courts, there’s been no real action taken (so far). It’s as though management is laying low, hoping everything will blow over. That’s fine with us. We pray that the trend continues.

    Many thanks for prayer, everyone.

  425. That is fantastic to hear, William. I hope you do not have to go through with the procedure at all, if these stones are being flushed by a greater water intake.

  426. Thanks William! I have done all of those things (at times), except the batons.

    I have been doing vigorous walking for a long time now, plus a lot of hiking. I am able to do those things, it’s just taking me some time to get back up to speed.

  427. Aristotle, Many honest physicians who are not going along with this wicked narrative have stated that these so called “vaccines” will annihilate one’s natural immune system over a period of time where it is their hope (Big Pharma, Fraudci, Gates, etc,) that the masses will cave in to fear to take the “vaccines” and the follow up “booster shots” which will make victims their lifelong customers. It is so obvious that their lust and greed for $$MONEY$$ is an insatiable thirst that is never quenched. First, it was “delta”, now its “omicron” to create non stop fear mongering. I’ve heard that some McDonald’s hamburger restaurants are now offering the jabs.

    There was a video on either Rumble or Bitchute where a registered nurse discovered that there are cases of vaccines that are placebos. They are mixing in placebos along with the real McCoys. They are doing this so that it won’t be so obvious to everyone that genocide/population control is one of their agendas.

    In other words, they have it set up in such a way where many will die from these vaccines and many won’t. Deviously clever. Again, taking these vaccines is like playing Russian roulette because the general public, that is, us, have no way of knowing which are placebos and which are the real McCoys in those vials. Many victims die right away after getting either the 1st or 2nd jab within hours, some die days later, some die weeks, and some die months down the line. It is the opinion of French nobel prize winner virologist Luc Montagnier that many who don’t die now will die 2 to 3 or more years down the line.

    I pray and hope your mother in law will wake up to reality.

  428. Aristotle, Been praying for your mother in law during our family prayer time. Good to hear that she’s doing better. However, I hope that you and your wife can persuade her not to take any more “booster” shots which could prove fatal. I hate to be blunt about this, but sometimes we have to be blunt. Taking these “vaccines” is like playing Russian roulette.

    I have a co-worker who has known 6 people in their lives who have died from these bioweapon “vaccines.” Her mother personally knew an MD doctor from Hong Kong who took the 1st and 2nd jabs, but was fine. However, when he took the 3rd “booster” shot, he developed a severe anaphylactic reaction to it and died within 2 weeks. His family is now in utter shock and devastated.

    At my workplace, I have tried to persuade a lady and her husband over and over again and tried to educate them about the dangers of these experimental vaccines. I have shown them case after case after case of people who have died and case after case of people who have suffered permanent damage in all sorts of forms including heart attacks, seizures, heart inflammation, etc, after taking these vaccines, BUT THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN.

    So far, only 2 of the people that I’ve warned are now slowly waking up to reality. One lady had severe full body hives after the 1st jab, and has waken up and the 2nd person is waking up after suffering a high fever for days, dizziness, and full body aches and pains. I remember she was out for over a week from work.

  429. John, Glad to hear you have gotten better in your recovery and that you are back at 70% fitness level. I work out with light to moderate weights 5 times a week and have been doing that for close to 40 years. I also do a cardiovascular workout twice a week spending over an hour twirling and throwing batons which can work up a sweat.

    Can you run or do light jogging or run the treadmill at your own pace? That’s a very good cardiovascular workout. Or you can do weight training with light to moderate weights doing as high as 12 to 15 reps per set of exercise to get the circulation going in your body. Get plenty of rest, sunshine, and drink lots of water on a daily basis to flush out your system of toxins, etc. Don’t forget to take the Vitamin D3, coupled with Zinc and a multi-vitamin supplement. God bless!

  430. Helen, Thank you. I may not have the procedure done. I will be asking the specialist to see if I can get a CT scan or Ultrasound to get a more conclusive picture of what’s going on inside. If very small bladder stones are detected, then I will decline getting the procedure, but if large stones are detected, then I will go ahead with the procedure. Because of my lifelong obsessive compulsive disorder and severe anxiety disorder, I will be requesting that I be given GENERAL ANESTHESIA where I will be totally unconscious and won’t feel a thing. I’ve already discussed with my wife and son that I would be willing to pay out of pocket for general anesthesia in a hospital setting if that’s what it takes and they both agreed. I don’t trust the topical sedation gel at all.

    Lately, the Lord has been gracious to me and it’s been very good where I have been able to pass the stones out by drinking large amounts of water on a daily basis and I’ve been feeling better. My problem was that I was not drinking enough water on a daily basis coupled with the fact that I’m in my late 50’s where it’s very common for many men to have enlargement of the prostate which contributes to bladder stones as the enlargement creates obstruction of the passing of waste fluid from the bladder resulting in waste fluid being retained in the bladder creating bladder stones.

    Getting older as a human being is no fun. Ugh! : (

  431. Praying for God to intervene in the lives of those spellbound by these lies. Also praying for you, William to have peace and for it to be a swift procedure

  432. Aristotle, I’m feeling pretty well. I think I have regained about 70% of my fitness level.

  433. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Johninnc thank you so much. How have you been feeling?!

  434. Aristotle, thanks for the update.

    I am thankful that your mother has improved.

    I have prayed for God to give wisdom, discernment, and insight to people, so that they will not be such easy prey for the deceivers in government, media, “medicine”, “science”, and clergy.

  435. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Update. My wife’s mom is better but now thinks it’s because of the vaccine. No doubt she will be going to get more boosters as soon as the CDC says so. This makes me feel so hurt. Please pray that God removes her blindness and gives her sight and discernment into what is really going on in the world right now. Just please pray for all of the people around us who are blind. Please pray God opens their eyes!!!!

  436. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    You are never a burden William. Just prayed for what you asked. You will be fine.

  437. William, I have prayed that God will comfort you, and help you to remain calm and as relaxed as possible. Also, that you will receive the diagnostic evaluations (CT and ultrasound) before any of your doctors make recommendations as to whether or not surgery would be necessary or advisable. And, finally, that should you need to have the surgical procedure, that you will be able to have it on your terms, with respect to general anesthesia.

  438. John, Aristotle, and Helen, Thanks. Here’s my problem. I have to admit that I’m a COWARD when it comes to pain and these types of procedures because of my obsessive compulsive nature. I HATE these procedures! My wife and son both said they would agree on me paying out of my pocket for general anesthesia. They saw how traumatized I was today.

    The cystoscopy procedure is usually and more commonly done in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia using a topical sedation gel in which the patient is awake. Some patients tolerate the procedure well, BUT other patients don’t and will feel a lot of pain as they reported that the topical sedation gel is useless.

    Depending on the situation, a cystoscopy procedure can also be done in a hospital setting using general anesthesia where the patient is totally unconscious and will feel no pain at all. The whole procedure lasts about a good 10 to 15 minutes or longer. However, because of the fact that I am obsessive compulsive in my nature and also have obsessive compulsive disorder, I am feeling very scared and nervous right now. I got really nervous and scared today when I called my physician’s office and inquired about the cystoscopy procedure and they told me that they do this procedure in the office under local anesthesia using a topical gel sedation.

    I would much rather have the procedure done with general anesthesia and I even told my wife and son that I would even be willing to spend the money out of my own pocket to get general anesthesia so I won’t feel any pain at all during the procedure. I’m that serious. Small bladder stones can pass when one drinks a lot of water daily to flush them out. However, the larger bladder stones cannot pass due to their size and need to be removed.

    If the larger stones are not removed, then serious problems down the line will occur such as blockage of the flow of urine which I’m already having which can lead to serious complications, including damage to the bladder, kidneys, uremic poisoning and even death.

    Right now I don’t know if I have any large bladder stones in my bladder, but I do know I have small ones where I was able to pass them out on numerous occasions. I recently went up on YouTube where there are several videos on this procedure where patients gave their reviews after having this procedure done. Some were utterly terrified and said they would never do it again, but some say they tolerated it very well.

    One patient gave some wise advice and stated that before this procedure is done, that a patient should insist on getting an ultrasound or CT scan which are 2 of the best ways of detecting whether or not a person has large bladder stones in their bladder. An ultrasound or CT is very sensitive and would no doubt pick up the presence of bladder stones whether small or large. Then if large stones are detected, then the procedure should be done to remove the large stones.

    One patient said that his urologist did a short cut where he skipped the CT and ultrasound and just directly did the cystoscopy procedure on him. That is no doubt bad medical practice. I tried taking a nap today, but could not sleep because I am so scared and nervous!! I try to keep optimistic and be calm, but I find it very hard since I have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). People with OCD have the highest and worst bouts of anxiety, fear, and nervousness. I just can’t help it. I prayed today to God today and even told Him that this is honestly what I’m feeling and that I can’t hide my feelings.

    Please pray that my urologist will let me have a CT or ultrasound done to determine whether or not I have large bladder stones BEFORE consideration is taken regarding the procedure. If I only have small stones detected, I will refuse having the procedure done. Please also pray that if my insurance does not cover for general anesthesia for this procedure that they will accept me paying for general anesthesia out of my own pocket. Back in 2017 when I had a kidney stone removed, my insurance covered for general anesthesia where I was totally unconscious and didn’t feel any pain whatsoever. I can still remember how relaxed I felt.

    Please pray for me, I’ve never been so troubled and traumatized like I am right now. : ( My apologies to you all if I am becoming a burden. : (

  439. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you William. You will be fine!!

  440. Praying for strength for this procedure and that it be swift and painless for you, William.

  441. William, I have prayed for you – that you will be healed, that whatever procedures you have are helpful, that you will tolerate them well pain wise, and that you won’t be overly nervous about them.

  442. Please pray for me. I will be seeing a urologist on January 10 for an evaluation as I have bladder stones. I will most probably be having a procedure called a cystoscopy which is an outpatient procedure done in the office to remove the stones. I was told that only a topical gel sedation will be used. I have been reading reviews on YouTube where patients who had the procedure experienced pain whereas others tolerated the procedure well with minimal discomfort.

    Please pray for me as I’m feeling very nervous and scared right now. I try to be optimistic and calm about the upcoming procedure, but it is very difficult for me due to the fact that I’m obsessive compulsive. I have to admit that I’m a baby when it comes to pain and these types of procedures. My wife says she doesn’t want to hear me complain which makes it even more difficult.

  443. Aristotle, I’m very sorry to hear about your mother in law. It’s unfortunate that she got “vaccinated” and now has covid. I have a whole compilation of cases where the “fully vaccinated” including Hollywood celebrities are now infected with covid which is ironic. At the same time, the unvaccinated who are fine are being blamed which makes no logical sense.

    I would strongly advise that she not get the 2nd jab. Two of my co-workers took the 1st jab and developed adverse reactions to it and are now slowly waking up to reality.

    I am praying for her and your wife. Please keep us posted.

  444. Praying for your wife’s moms healing, and praying for you all, Aristotle.

  445. Aristotle, I have prayed for Darnetha, and for your wife.

  446. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Please help. My wife’s mother who works at a hospital went the entire time without getting covid. Now after being vaccinated she suddenly has it. I’m so angry and upset. Please, my wife is heartbroken. Please pray for Darnetha Eiland. She was getting better but now is back in bad shape. Not crazy bad but not great. Please pray that she is healed please

  447. Holly, I don’t know how he’s doing as I don’t personally know him. He and his wife are actually friends of one of my Christian friends. My friend hasn’t posted any updates, but I hope that he’s okay and doing well. Hospitals are not the best place to be at present if one is sick since they have been known to make the sick even sicker.

  448. William, how is your friend in AZ? I personally would get the pure Ivermectin paste from the Feed Store and give it to my spouse if he were in the hospital and they were refusing. And I’d ask for the steroids and steroidal nebulizer treatments and antibiotics (many things are I believe a Covid combo – flu + manipulated cold germ). I’d bring in my supplements. But in many towns they don’t allow family to visit.

  449. Aristotle, You’re welcome, brother! I still think it’s best that your friend’s daughter go in for a 2nd test from a trusted doctor that is not going along with the narrative. It’s always good to get a 2nd opinion. Who knows? Maybe she’s negative. This whole thing about being “asymptomatic” while testing “positive” is another lie being pushed by Fauci and his associates. My workplace has been requiring me and other “unvaccinated” workers to be tested weekly and so far I have tested NEGATIVE 21 times within a one year time period.

    Dr. Michael Yeadon who was former Vice-President of Pfizer and Chief Scientific Officer of the Allergy and Respiratory Research division 10 years ago has recently stated that this whole thing about being “asymptomatic” is another lie and personally feels that these “vaccines” are being used for evil. Yeadon states, “For example, if someone wished to harm or kill a significant proportion of the world’s population over the next few years, the systems being put in place right now will enable it. It’s my considered view that it is entirely possible that this will be used for MASSIVE-SCALE DEPOPULATION.”

    Of course, Dr. Yeadon has been smeared and written off as a “conspiracy theorist” by opposing pro-vaxxers and those who have been brainwashed by the narrative. I still believe that Dr. Yeadon is telling the truth and one of the few honest men of integrity on the face of this earth along with Senator/Dr. Rand Paul, Senator Ron Johnson, and Senator Ted Cruz.

    I hope that your friend can contact one of the listed doctors who can refer his daughter to a trusted doctor in the Chicago area or he might have to contact a trusted doctor from out of state. I have read that some doctors can be consulted via WebCam, Skype, video consult when out of state.

    Will keep praying for Gabriel’s daughter. Please keep us updated.

    God bless!

  450. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Johninnc thank you so much. Wow William thank you. We were both wondering about the false positive too….

    He picked up ionic zinc, vitamin D3, vitamin C, bio active colloidal silver, NAC, glutathione.

    NAC seems to help with covid and now the FDA is trying to ban it. Hmmm

    Would love to have the ivermectin but we have no clue where to get it in Chicago. I might need to go on a private forum and talk to people to figure out where it is.

    William thank you and yes he is going to stay away from hospitals and doctors pushing faucis narrative.

  451. Aristotle, The below doctors are the ones among others who are not going along with the worldwide narrative that is being aggressively pushed with draconian measures. Dr. Tyson, Dr. Stella Immanuel, and Dr. Zelenko are among the best doctors who have healed many covid patients using the proven effective combination of Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Zithromax, coupled with Vitamin D3 and Zinc. Depending on where your friend’s daughter lives, these doctors can do a referral to a doctor who is not going along with the narrative.

    1) Brian Tyson, M.D.
    2026 N. Imperial Ave.
    El Centro, CA 92243
    1-760 – 592-4351

    2) Vladimir Zelenko, M.D.
    Monroe, New York
    845 – 782-0000

    Dr. Zelenko was the physician who treated President Trump and his wife with Hydroxychloroquine when he and his wife tested positive for covid.

    3) Stella Immanuel, M.D.
    (281) 530-1230

    Hope this helps, God bless!

  452. Aristotle, Praying for Gabriel’s daughter. A word of caution, if she tested positive, but is asymptomatic, it’s possible that the test she took is giving off a “false positive”. Was that a PCR test? Many PCR tests are known to produce “positives” that are false.

    Please warn her to stay away from hospitals or doctors that are going along with the wicked narrative being dictated by Fraud Fauci and his associates. I would have her re-test with one of America’s Frontline doctors to get a 2nd opinion. The only doctors that can be presently trusted are the ones not going along with the narrative:

    Dr. Simone Gold
    Dr. Stella Immanuel – Houston, Texas
    Dr. Brian Tyson – El Centro, California
    Dr. Harvey Risch – world renowned epidemiologist from Yale
    Dr. Zelenko

    I gave a recent list of doctors to John when he tested positive for Covid. You can find that list and more detailed info by scrolling or from Google.

    Hope this helps, God bless!

  453. Aristotle, I have prayed for Gabriel’s daughter, and for Gabriel and his entire family.

  454. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Ah I see ok thanks for letting me know William.

    Can you guys please pray for my brother in Christ? His name is Gabriel and his daughter just tested positive for Covid but is showing no symptoms. Please pray for the whole family that no one else get it and that his daughter is healthy and shows no symptoms

  455. Aristotle, I’m not sure if he’s on a ventilator, but I heard that he’s in the ICU with difficulty breathing. The problem with ventilators is that they give covid patients a 10 to 20% chance of survival. Also, many hospitals get a $39,000 reimbursement for each covid patient put on a ventilator. Many hospitals are more interested in $$$ than the health and well being of patients. It has gotten to that point where many patient’s families have to fight a legal battle in court and win where the judge has to order the hospital to administer Ivermectin to help dying patients. I’ve so far seen 3 cases. Let’s just pray and hope he gets put on Ivermectin.

    Also, Thanks for your prayers for me.

  456. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey William praying for Stacy’s husband to be given ivermectin and taken off the ventilator.

    Also I’m glad everything worked out well for you

  457. Praying for Stacey’s husband. Lord please bring swift relief. Protect him from unprotective nurses and doctors who are just following orders, and surround him with your faithful servants, as you did with our faithful brother, Johninnc

  458. William, I have prayed for Stacey’s husband, that God would heal him, and that he would receive treatments that are helpful, and will avoid those that might harm him.

  459. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please pray for a dear Sister in the faith named Stacey in Arizona whose husband is battling covid in the hospital. Her husband has been there for several days in the ICU and has been having difficulty breathing. Please pray that he be healed and that the hospital will give him Ivermectin or HCQ which has proven to be very effective in healing Covid patients.

    There was a recent case in Illinois where a 71 year old man was admitted into a hospital, but was put on a ventilator since October 2021. However, being put on the ventilator did not help and he was dying. His daughter and family had to fight a legal battle in November where they finally won the battle to gain approval to administer Ivermectin to her dying father. The hospital was stubborn and would not administer the Ivermectin. The judge ordered the hospital that Ivermectin be administered and as soon as the Ivermectin was administered, her father immediately started to show signs of improvement and is now fully recovered and back at home.

    Please pray that Stacey’s husband be healed with the right meds and please pray that God would intervene if the hospital is stubborn where they may try to impose insane covid protocols which have been known to kill patients. There are many hospitals that are pushing the “Fraudci approved drug” called “Remdesivir” which is not only expensive and useless, but has been known to kill 25% of all Covid patients.

    We all know that the best drugs for Covid are Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and Zithromax which are all inexpensive and proven to be effective. Please pray that these meds be used for Stacey’s husband.

  460. So thankful for that news William, praise God. We keep speaking the truth in love, praying and thanking Him through each difficultly. So much to be grateful for.

  461. William, so glad to hear 🙂

  462. Helen, Thank you for your prayers which made a difference. : ) I feel sorry for the little girl and hope and pray that God intervenes in some way so that she doesn’t get jabbed. I’m sure she is not the only one and that many other young children are like her who don’t want the jab. Her mother also snapped at me on that day when she said, “I’m just protecting my daughter!!!”

    No parent in their right mind would “protect their child” by forcing them to get the jab which is no doubt child abuse. History just keeps repeating itself. In the Old Testament it was child sacrifices by fire to Molech, Chemosh, and Baal, now it’s by way of “vaccine” being pushed by our “leadership” using draconian measures. Utterly insane.

    Isaiah 5:20-21 – 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

  463. Your comment made me smile, William. The Lord and his small mercies are everywhere, like in this situation from chaos into calmness. You cared and your principle cared to support you. I love hearing about these miracles. So many are perishing, and God is showing Himself throughout it all, and still people reject him and need to ‘play their part’ in an effort to get their lives back, meanwhile children are the feast of the day on Satans menu with most parents none the wiser.

  464. William, I am having some good days, and some just OK days. I am over the COVID, and I am happy that I have natural immunity. I still have a lot of things out of whack, so I’ve got at least another doctor visit ahead.

    I am not taking anything at the moment, and I am trying to keep from pushing myself too hard.

  465. John, Praise God! Are you doing better? Are you still taking the HCQ and the Ivermectin? Once you’re fully recovered you will have natural immunity.

  466. William, that is wonderful news!

    I am so thankful!

  467. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

    I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you for your prayers for me. The principal at my school backed me up 100% and I’m off the hook and the meeting was cancelled. He did a very good job at squashing the incident that could have had the potential of blowing out of proportion as we are dealing with very blinded and brainwashed pro-vaxxers working with the health department injecting the public with poison.

    Sorry for the late response, but I’ve been swamped at work after being off for 2 weeks vacation.

  468. yerbae’, thanks so much!

    I really appreciate everyone’s prayers and other support.

    As sick as I was, it was always a comfort to know that I have eternal life in Christ Jesus.

  469. John, I am so thankful to God to hear that you are doing better. God bless you brother, for all you do!

  470. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    William I’m sorry she did that. A lot of people don’t understand what’s happening right now and they think people like you and me are rebels. At least that’s what my old boss called me haha…

  471. Holly, thanks so much for your prayers, advice, and other support.

    I am very thankful to be feeling better.

    It is so sad to watch our nation willingly rushing headlong into the path of authoritarian rule.

  472. Johninnc,

    I have much joy thanking God for your recovery, and praying for continued recovery. We cannot lose any solid-grace based believers right now.

  473. William, I am praying for you to be vindicated and if not, that it will become part of the news and encourage others. You did the right thing. If I heard someone screaming I would do the same.

    I’m sorry, sometimes with mates who may not see the same thing, a question of ‘doesn’t His Word tell us to hold back those being led to the slaughter’ (Pr 24:11-12) etc. might help if said with a soft attitude ( a soft answer turning away wrath). I will say that troublemaker and other names has been some that my family or spouse has used with me at times and it is hurtful, so pray for them. I also pray for the Lord to show me where I can be refined because I know I always have room.

    Lastly, I’ve prayed for strong men to stand up for truth and righteousness, so thank you.

  474. Helen,

    Thank you for praying. We are definitely in a time where good is considered evil and evil is considered good just as the Bible says. Things are turning from bad to worse.

  475. I am so sorry, William. Very sad to hear this. It should  not be this way. Praying for strength for you and for the hard hearts to this covid spell be softened. The Lord is with you.Sent from my Samsung Galaxy J4+ – Powered by Three

  476. Aristotle Logan Vargo, Thanks for praying for me. It’s hard when my wife is also a believer and she even called me an “idiot” and a “troublemaker” for speaking up. : (

    I’m reminded of Job’s wife who told Job to curse God and die during his moment of distress.

  477. William, thanks so much for all of your prayers.

    I am convinced that the all of your prayers are making a difference in my recovery.

  478. John, Thanks for praying. I’m still praying for you Brother and hope my prayer is making a difference in your recovery. : )

  479. Aristotle, thanks for your continued prayers!

  480. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    William I am praying for you as we speak. Everything will be fine. I will pray you get to stay at that school and that everyone’s hearts will be softened toward you .

    Johninnc glad to hear you are doing better…still praying for you!

  481. William, I have prayed that you would not be treated harshly in this matter.

  482. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

    Please pray for me. I just received word from the principal of my school that one of my supervisors is setting up a meeting for tomorrow where I may possibly be reprimanded and disciplined for the incident the other day when I ran to the school yard of my school after hearing the little girl crying and screaming in desperation for almost 10 minutes. I told the little girl’s mother that if her daughter does not want the vaccine that her daughter should not be FORCED to take it. When the little girl was screaming at the top of her lungs on that day, I could tell that she was in the midst of a struggle and being dragged away. I thought that she was either getting raped or getting abducted and I ran there as a concerned citizen since I live in very close proximity to the school and also work there. However, this incident occurred on a weekend when I was not at work, but still on my vacation break.

    I have been working for my department for 32 years and am familiar with their protocols and I anticipate reprimand and discipline in the form of suspension without pay or get kicked out and reassigned to another school with more work to do. My work union is basically a very useless union to go to for help which has a reputation of collecting union dues and then leaving employees high and dry.

    The principal told me that the vaccine clinic personnel that was working in the school cafeteria filed an incident report regarding me which is why the supervisor who is above my immediate supervisor is setting up a meeting with me and the principal tomorrow. (The school where I work at is being used as a vaccine clinic every Saturday.) Again, please pray for me. I might be subjected to discipline. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I hope I don’t get transferred to another school. The good news is that the principal said he would support and back me up, but because of the fact that the incident occurred on a Saturday, that may fall out of his area of jurisdiction.

    This is what happens when we as Christians take a stand and speak up for what is right. I anticipate maybe getting suspended for 2 weeks or more without pay. Our Lord Jesus Christ did what was right and was perfectly sinless, but the chief priests, teachers of the law, the Pharisees, the unbelieving Jews, etc, all wanted Christ to be killed and falsely accused Him of being “demon possessed”, a “deceiver” – Matthew 27:63-64, Matthew 12, Mark 3 – and accused Him of performing miracles/healings by the power of Satan.

    The apostle Paul did what was right in the eyes of God and other believers, but gets seized and labeled a “pestilent fellow”/”insurrectionist” – Acts 24:5

    Even my wife called me a “troublemaker” for standing up and doing what was right. : (

  483. Helen, It appears that child sacrifices are happening again, but in the form of “vaccines”. Back in the OT, it was Baal and Molech worship where parents sacrificed their children in the fire. King Solomon was guilty of this too as he built 2 altars to the 2 Satanic gods, Chemosh and Molech as recorded in 1 Kings 11:6-8.

  484. William, you did a wonderful thing trying to protect that child. I am sorry that you were attacked on so many fronts. This “hypnosis” on the population is called mass formation and Prof Mattias Desmat has done many interviews, even to the Corona Auswiss with Reiner Fuellmich and his team. The devil is showing no mercy going after the children with these mRNA jabs. The truth is even out now that they are cell and gene therapy. Bayer executive Stefan Oelrich said it on video weeks agoSent from my Samsung Galaxy J4+ – Powered by Three

  485. John, It sure feels like we are being hemmed in by evil from all directions.

  486. Thanks William.

    That is a really dreadful story about what was happening at your local school. It seems like the whole world has been brainwashed.

  487. I had to take a stand today and spoke up for the truth. I was in my backyard working out when suddenly I heard a little child screaming at the top of his/her lungs, crying for help and I could tell that this child was in a struggle being dragged away. I could hear the child scream out the words, “NO, NO, I don’t want it!!!” “Help me!!” “Help me!” It was LOUD! This went on for a good 5 to 7 minutes straight and sounded like it was coming from the schoolyard of the elementary school where I work at just next door to my house and the first thought that came to my mind was that a little child was either getting raped or getting kidnapped, so I immediately ran to the schoolyard and noticed that cars were parked in the yard and several people were standing around. The screaming from the little child had stopped by the time I got there, so I told some of the adults there that I heard a little child screaming and struggling for help and I asked what was going on.

    A lady that was seated and breastfeeding her son told me that it was her little daughter that was screaming and struggling because “she was nervous and scared about getting the vaccine.” Then it dawned on me that the school cafeteria was being used on Saturday mornings as a vaccine clinic. I got upset and told the lady that if her daughter does not want the vaccine that ”SHE SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO GET IT.” She got upset and told me that “it was none of my business and that I should leave!” and “get out of here!”, but I told her “no.” I then told her the truth and said that this “vaccine” is not a vaccine, but a bioweapon. She got even more upset and then threatened to call the police on me. I told her to “go ahead and call the police on me” and that it “scared me”! She never called the police.

    At that point a rep from the health department came out of the cafeteria and confronted me and said that I had no right to be there. He asked who I was and I told him that I work there and also live in very close proximity to the school. I told him that I was very concerned about the little child screaming and calling for help like that where I thought that she was being raped or kidnapped. He also told me that the little girl was very nervous and scared about getting jabbed so I told him the same thing that I told the little girl’s mother, but he said children need to be vaccinated for protection. I then proceeded to tell him that these vaccines are known to kill people and that many people also suffer severe anaphylactic side effects. The rep acknowledged the fact that the side effects are real.

    But when I said that it is a known fact that these vaccines have killed people, another rep immediately butted into the conversation and rebuked me saying that “No one has ever died from the vaccine!” I told him, “Oh, really?!” I told him that I have a whole compilation of cases over a foot high and that I did my homework on this one. I knew he was lying and totally blind to the truth.

    The first rep then told me that he knew our principal and that he was going to talk to him about this. I left and went home and called the principal and told him that I went there out of concern as a concerned citizen and had every right to be there and he agreed.

    During the whole time I was there, I could see how blinded and ignorant these people were where they just totally gave in to the lies, the fear mongering, and the narrative that is being aggressively pushed without ever doing their homework. They are just blindly going along. Sheeple. I can tell them the truth, but they will no doubt get offended and want me to leave. The same is true of all physicians, nurses, and medical personnel who tell the truth and refuse the jab will get threatened, fired, smeared, and censored.

  488. John, Glad to hear that you’re recovering. Still praying for you.

  489. Thanks Helen.

    God has truly blessed me with healing and I appreciate all of your prayers.

  490. Thats amazing, Johninnc. So glad that you are feeling better. Holly and myself and others have been praying for your recovery.Sent from my Samsung Galaxy J4+ – Powered by Three

  491. Thanks for all of your prayers everyone!

    I seem to have turned the corner, and I am making a slow recovery

    I was able to walk around the neighborhood yesterday. It was slow and taxing, but I made it.

  492. Still praying for John. Anybody heard how he’s doing?

  493. John, Are you feeling better? Is the HCQ and Ivermectin working?

  494. Hey William, thanks so much for asking.

    Gifford is still at home and will be for some time. He’s doing some PT and they did cast his arm. He has the walking cast on his leg and soft cervical collar. Because of the broken ribs, it will be some time, but sure the Lord is probably using for the right reason.

    My daughter is still pretty sick, she has not gotten the carbon monoxide test back still. But she is not ‘down’ if you know what I mean, just resting. I have her taking the Quercetin, Zinc, D3, C, NAC, and Hesperidin/Diosmin combo. She is taking mucinex and using a steamer, so she says she is on the mend. My son-in-law is doing just fine.

    I think you are thinking of my friend Debbie and her daughter Em. Em is still in out, in out, in out, etc. of the hospital. 2 times in the last week, the last by an ambulance. She needs a different hospital, I told her to go to Texas, I’d get her a hotel and when Em got sick again, go to a hospital there. I don’t know what she will do… But I’m kind of beside myself, they have had their fair share. Em’s faith is strong though even as she wastes away physically.

    The one who was paralyzed from the Jab, she got to go home yesterday. She is still basically the same, not sure if she has recovered any use of anything yet, but at least she was with her family for Thanksgiving, and I saw a whole lot more of God and prayer mentioned in the comments. We never know who understands, but I pray this causes them to seek.

    Thanks for praying, I sure appreciate it always.

  495. John, still praying. I’d suggest Mucinex in day (guaifenesan) and a suppressant maybe at night for sleep. Coughing response is good, our bodies natural response. Also, a steamer has always been huge for me with suppressing cough at night. The cool mist doesn’t work. I’ve had respiratory issues since a little kid, so I’ve learned what does and does not work for me. Plus just the necessity of having to be a medical power of attorney. Most drug stores have cheap steamers (Vicks brand usually) and the only thing is, sometimes you have to add a pinch of salt depending on the hardness of your water to get it to boil. It does need frequent clean out for the mineral and calcium deposits that build up. But I think it may help (and Vicks lol).

  496. Hi John, my prayers for your recovery.

  497. Holly, How is Gifford doing currently? I’m still praying for him. How is your daughter and son in law? and your daughter’s friend? Also, how is Adam’s friend who got paralyzed from the waist down after getting the jab? I’m still praying for them all. Please keep us posted. Let us not give up praying for one another! God is good.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Philippians 4:6-7 – 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

    7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

    Luke 18:1 – And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

  498. John, Glad to hear you’re on the HCQ and Ivermectin. I hear you. The cough can be a real pain. Ever since childhood, if I ever get a cold, I always get a nasty throat infection that comes with a hardcore cough that keeps me up all night where I have to take a heavy duty cough syrup to keep it under control. The same is true currently whenever I get a cold.

    Still praying for you. Please keep us posted. Happy Thanksgiving!

  499. William, it’s been rough going. I started on HCQ and Ivermectin yesterday. I still have a wicked cough and can’t sleep without taking heavy cough suppressants.

  500. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for you johnincc!!!

  501. John, How are you doing? Are you on the Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin or Zithromax?

  502. Chas, My gosh!!! $130 a week at your own expense just for the test?!!!! That is utterly insane! This just goes to show how they are going any which way possible to try to make life as hard as possible for those who refuse the jabs. It’s not about the health and well being of the general public, but about the love of $$$$. They are trying to make your wife compromise and give in using this method. Praying for you and your wife. Praying that God will deal with her evil employer.

  503. Chas, I don’t know where you live, but there are places that offer it less expensively. I know they were asking in our stop the mandate group and several came up with alternate places for less than nothing (Grand Junction Co).


  504. Thanks everyone for the prayer and support.
    The problem with testing is that it’s at our expense. $130.00 a week. My wife might as well quit and find another job (though I don’t know if anyone’s hiring the “unvaccinated”). At least, if she stayed home, we’d save on gas.

  505. chas, Praying for your wife’s work situation with the mandate. I am currently testing every week just so that I can keep my job. I’ve also submitted a religious exemption which my employer has accepted, but they also added that it is just for now. Your wife should go for the weekly testing with the PCR testing kits. My workplace supplies them every week. I’d rather get tested than jabbed. Those jabs have been proven fatal and permanently crippling for many people worldwide. I have a whole compilation of cases from all over the world that is over a foot high which is just the tip of the iceberg.

    I’ve so far tested negative 18 times within an 11 month time period. Praise God!

  506. Holly, I’m not a doctor and I have no idea regarding the dosages for Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and Zithromax. All I know is that these meds have done marvelous wonders for covid patients. The Hydroxychloroquine is very inexpensive to manufacture and to purchase, but because of the fact that Fraudci and his associates have gone any which way possible to malign these proven drugs with their misinformation campaign, banning, and removing them off the shelves that one needs to find the right doctors and right pharmacies to have access to them.

    America’s frontline doctors such as Dr. Simone Gold, Dr. Stella Immanuel, and world renowned epidemiologist, Dr. Harvey Risch can all attest to the fact regarding the effectiveness of these proven meds.

    I’ve read that Remdesivir has proven to be ineffective and very expensive and is known to kill about 25% of covid patients who take it, so Remdesivir is a big NO NO.

  507. William, I saw some protocols using both hydroxy and IVM at the same time. Interestingly, they appear to have been scrubbed from the net. Any thoughts on what the dosages were?

  508. Praying for all your needs here. God knows and cares about each individual. Praying for the best for you all with jobs, and unrest, and fear. His Word seems to take care of an awful lot of that as we have a way to answer the enemy in our lives. Not too much longer and we won’t have to deal with Sodom and Gomorrah.

  509. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    William we have been praying for Gods protection at night. This has happened on and off for a long time. It doesn’t really bother us because we know what it is. In those moments even thinking Jesus seems to stop everything. Thank you so much for caring man seriously

  510. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Wow only 13 days? That’s ridiculous. Praying for God to bless you guys financially and for your wife to get an even better job. Also praying for God to give you complete peace in this situation. Praying for this situation to work out in an amazing way so that God’s power can be shown.

  511. Chas, praying for your wife.

  512. Well, the jab mandate war has just come home. Tonight my wife was informed by her employer that she has 13 days to present proof of “vaccination” to keep her job. Her alternative is to submit to weekly testing which would cost us almost half her weekly pay.

    She knows too much about the jab to get jabbed. Since she’s had pneumonia before, we’re going to look into getting a medical waiver. Of course we would appreciate any prayer on the situation.

    She says she already “feels a great peace” that God is going to take care of the situation.

    Many thanks, all.

  513. Praying for you, John.

  514. John, Remember that your chances of recovery are 99% as verified by Dr. Simone Gold, Dr. Stella Immanuel, and many other physicians who are part of America’s Frontline Doctors who have healed many patients who had covid. The Hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax, Ivermectin, etc, does wonders when taken early.

    Still praying for you during our family prayer time. Please keep us posted.

    God bless!

  515. William, I tested positive for COVID on Friday.

    I am hoping to start on Ivermectin tomorrow.

  516. Aristotle, Thanks for praying for my requests. Hope things are going well with you and your wife. Is your wife still being harassed in the middle of the night by those Satanic apparitions?

    She should rebuke them loudly in the name of Jesus Christ and they will leave.

  517. John, If you’re still not feeling well and test positive for covid, I recommend that you get a hold of one of the doctors from the list I gave you where they can prescribe or know of a doctor in your area who is not going along with the narrative who can prescribe Hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax, etc,

    Hydroxychloroquine has around for about 65 years and is FDA approved and has been proven again and again to be effective in healing patients with covid. In fact, Hydroxychloroquine is such a threat to the narrative being pushed by Fauci, Gates, the WHO, the CDC, etc, that the world’s 2nd largest Hydroxychloroquine manufacturer in Taiwan exploded under very suspicious circumstances recently. It is so obvious. India is currently the world’s largest manufacturer.

    However, Fauci and his associates, the CDC, WHO, etc, are going any which way possible running their misinformation campaign maligning these proven drugs and having them banned and removed off the shelves. Many physicians are being threatened with loss of employment and suspension of their medical licenses and are not allowed to prescribe these proven meds. This is the epitome of sheer evil.

  518. Thanks Aristotle!

    Just before I got sick, we had been in Arizona, and I had completed several epic hikes in the Grand Canyon, including two rim-to-river hikes. I was getting lots of sun, and was feeling quite vigorous.

    What a difference a few days makes.

  519. Aristotle L Vargo


    i wanted to share some studies with you:


    There seems to be a correlation with the severity of symptoms experienced and the amount of vitamin d in your blood. If you are deficient your body will have an “aggressive inflammatory response with the release of a large amount of pro-inflammatory cytokines in an event known as “cytokine storm.” The host immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus is hyperactive resulting in an excessive inflammatory reaction”

    It seems to be that if you live in a place that doesn’t get a lot of sun in the fall/winter/early spring you will need to supplement vitamin D. I get mine from vitamin shoppe. It’s called garden of life D3. I get the 5,000 iu capsules. It takes time to get your blood to the right levels. I take about 10,000 – 15,000 iu’s a day.

    Here is another study where people dosed up to 60,000 iu’s of vitamin D a day. It was tolerated and they did not get toxicity:


    COVID-19 virus induces cytokine production. It induces pro-inflammatory responses, proliferates efficiently from the human respiratory tract, those infected with viruses increase pro-inflammatory cytokine and chemokine production within 24 h. Levels of all viruses tested were measured and high cytokines were found, especially IL-6, TNF-α levels were found to be significantly higher. Our data in Table 1 show that the virus enables uptake and cytokine storm production. High levels of cytokine storm syndrome’ may be one of the critical hallmarks of COVID-19 disease severity. There is ample evidence that vitamin D is essential for normal immune and lung functions to fight pathogens and prevent autoimmune diseases. It is demonstrated that there exists the potential of vitamin D supplementation to prevent acute respiratory infection by modulating the innate immune response. As vitamin D therapy can reduce the COVID-19 disease burden, so daily supplementation is preferred to better outcomes in COVID-19 patients. Preventing vitamin D deficiency in patients with severe COVID-19 seems prudent as vitamin D deficiency is very common and it is associated with both an increased risk of various inflammatory diseases and increased susceptibility to infections including COVID-19.

    I hope this can help

  520. Thanks for the prayers, everyone!

    I have had a real tough time the last few days, particularly with a persistent cough, extreme lack of appetite, and general malaise.

    I received something from the health department last night urging me to get the vaccines as soon as I recover. This seems idiotic.

  521. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey Johninnc! Thinking about you! Praying for you to be healed and feel better. Any updates?

    Also Holly thinking about you too! praying for your son. Is he doing ok??

    Hey William I’m praying for your people too!

  522. John, I will be praying for you too!

  523. Thanks for your prayers Aristotle!

  524. Thanks Holly.

    This is the first I’ve heard of Quercetin, so I’ll go look for it.

  525. William, I am 100% convinced that natural immunity is superior to the shots.

    Our medical profession has very negatively distinguished themselves throughout this “pandemic,” and most people have gone along for the ride.

    Romans 12:2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

  526. Praying John. They have been treating people with High dose melatonin for quite some time for West Nile Virus, SARs and even Ebola, 1kg to mg, with double the dose at night. Some say you can go high as 1 gm (1000 mg) daily. But babies were treated up to 240 mg. that had West Nile.

    Praying you feel better. Don’t forget the standards, take quercetin WITH zinc at the same time (helps the zinc get into the cells), tonic water is supposed to help too. Quercetin is an antiinflammatory as well as antihistamine. Vit d3 up to 50000 a day while sick, 5-10000 a day prophylactic. Don’t forget Vit C about 1 gram a day spaced out, you might have to start with 5000 mg, some get intestinal distress from it.

    Also, what they’re finding is people are way low in magnesium, potassium, B12 and iron after an infection. Just fyi.

  527. John, I forgot mention, but you may already know that when a person tests positive for covid and recovers that they will develop natural immunity which is far better than the so called “vaccine” itself.

    Ironically, this fact is confirmed by current scientists working for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals who were caught in an undercover recording that they were totally unaware of making these assertions. Of course, all the pharmaceuticals, etc, have been lying through their teeth claiming that their vaccines will produce good immunity as they are “safe and effective”, but now we hear something totally different from scientists who work for Pfizer.

    Here is the link where they make these statements.


  528. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Praying for your people holly. Praying for you johnincc

  529. Thanks for the prayers and info, William. I have no intention of getting the jabs.

  530. John, Praying for you. Whatever you do, DO NOT take the vaccine which has been proven fatal and permanently cripple hundreds of thousands of people from all over. I have a whole compilation of cases from all over the world that is over a foot high which is just the tip of the iceberg.

    If you test positive for covid, your chances of recovery are 99% as verified by such doctors as Dr. Simone Gold, Dr. Stella Immanuel, Dr. Brian Tyson, and others. The best meds for covid currently and proven effective are Hydroxychloroquine coupled with Zithromax or Ivermectin, Vitamin D3, and Zinc when taken early.

    Dr. Brian Tyson has healed over 1700 covid patients with great success and Dr. Stella Immanuel has healed over 300 patients all with great success and zero deaths. I don’t know which state you’re in, but please be very careful and stay away from doctors who are going along with the narrative being pushed by Fauci, the CDC, etc, because they will never prescribe the above mentioned med combination as they are threatened with termination of employment if they do.

    I want to give you the names and numbers of physicians who have proven to be honest and transparent about the current scamdemic. These are America’s frontline doctors who have healed many covid patients and taken a stand by speaking out against the widespread medical tyranny. They can also refer you to a physician in your city or state that is not going along with the narrative where they can prescribe the above mentioned meds. Most of these physicians will charge a consult fee, but it’s worth it. If your primary care physician is going along with the narrative, then he/she will more than likely not prescribe the above mentioned meds as their jobs will be in jeopardy if they do.

    1) Brian Tyson, M.D.
    2026 N. Imperial Ave.
    El Centro, CA 92243
    1-760 – 592-4351

    2) Vladimir Zelenko, M.D.
    Monroe, New York
    845 – 782-0000

    Dr. Zelenko was the physician who treated President Trump and his wife with Hydroxychloroquine when he and his wife tested positive for covid.

    3) Stella Immanuel, M.D.
    (281) 530-1230

    Hope this helps, God bless!

    Please keep us posted.

  531. Please pray for me. I have been feeling extremely fatigued for the last couple of days, and have had a slight fever at times.

  532. Holly, Praying for your friend’s daughter, your daughter and son in law and Adam’s friend who suffered paralysis. It’s so obvious that the medical authorities don’t care anymore where many are just into making the big bucks where human lives are expendable.

    I’ve read that many ER doctors are being forced to list non covid patient’s deaths as “covid” and to list vaccine deaths as “covid deaths” and to list deaths as “due to unvaccination.” This is to exaggerate the number of covid deaths and to create constant fear mongering and control hoping that the unvaccinated will cave in and comply.

    Now, they are pushing the 4th jab where they figure if the first 3 won’t kill or cripple, then maybe the 4th one will.

  533. Holly, I have prayed for your friend’s daughter, your daughter and her husband, and for Adam’s friend.

  534. William, I’m praying for her and several others I know dealing with similar things. One friend’s daughter has been in and out with gastroparesis, unable to eat or hold fluids down. They send her right back out again, she is in a dangerous situation and needs prayer.

    Not only do some ‘suspect’ it is Covid, but oftentimes doctors will list you as such by symptoms, without a test. And we know those tests measure an immune response of any kind. They are not Covid specific which is sickening.

    One of our friends that passed away, his father told us they listed his death as Covid, and it was not. I don’t know if they ever got that reversed. And through FB friends I’ve heard of far more cases. I think it’s terrible people need to state, “I do not want ______________” as a drug or ventilation, etc. I’m concerned for my daughter who is due in a few months.

    In addition, her husband has been given the mandate, so pray for my daughter and son-in-law.

    Adam’s friend has been paralyzed from the chest down, pushed into taking it by a work mandate. She is currently in rehab.

    Love of Money… we can absolutely see up close how evil it is.

  535. William, I have prayed for Melissa and her mother. I’m no doctor, but it sounds like inability to eat could be all sorts of things other than COVID.

    I have lost a great deal of trust in the medical profession throughout this fiasco.

  536. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

    Please pray for a lady named Melissa whose mother is in the ER right now with stomach problems and cannot eat. The ER personnel suspects that it is “covid”. However, there are many hospitals that are pushing their insane covid protocols on patients who don’t even have covid by subjecting them to covid tests that come back with a false positive result. Then they are subjected to dangerous drugs that they don’t even need jeopardizing the well being of patients.

    As many of us are already aware, there are many hospitals that are labeling illnesses that have absolutely nothing to do with covid as “covid” to deliberately exaggerate the number of covid cases. It has been proven that the number of covid deaths here in the U.S. and abroad were deliberately exaggerated to increase and spread fear mongering so that the masses will be in a state of utter fear and panic and go rushing in to get the “vaccine.” It has been stated that patients who died of pneumonia, cancer, strokes, heart attacks, etc, that had nothing to do with covid were listed on their death certificates as dying from covid.

    In other words, there was a sudden DECREASE in the number of pneumonia, strokes, etc, deaths and a sudden INCREASE in the number of covid deaths listed on the death certificates. Talk about chicanery in deceiving the masses into getting the vaccine!!

    Also, hospitals here in the U.S would get reimbursement if patients were listed as having covid-19 pneumonia or put on a ventilator. Hospitals with Medicare covid 19 patients with pneumonia were reimbursed with $13,000 and those who were put on a ventilator were reimbursed with $39,000.

    It’s all about $$$ where integrity, honesty, and transparency is literally thrown out the window.

  537. Appreciate you all. He is suffering from pain and doesn’t have a follow up doctor yet.

    The Stop the Mandate Groups are really being run by my daughters, I’m just helping. The one in Grand Junction, Colorado, is doing well, evidently there is another group in Phoenix we haven’t met up with. I just keep praying, nothing more important than that as our first and continuing step. God bless you all.

  538. Holly, I am praying for you and your family and those you’re helping through the medical tyranny madness every day.

  539. William and John, (and everyone), thank you. I know he’s probably better at home, but then again I’m not there, so I tend to worry about it. With the direction some hospitals are going, I’m sure it’s far better. God bless you all.

  540. Holly, Thanks for the update. Will continue to pray for Gifford’s recovery from surgery and his injuries. I think it’s best that he recover back at home. The best care is home care. My son was once admitted into a hospital for surgery where the nursing care was just lousy after his surgery.

    My wife stayed in the hospital with him after his surgery and she did a much better job than the nurses. It’s been revealed that many hospitals are now imposing their insane covid protocols upon admitted patients who don’t even have covid at all. There are many cases where patients are just abandoned and left there to die.

  541. Holly, thanks for the update. I am thankful that Gifford’s surgery on his wrist was successful, and that his lung is no longer collapsed. It does sound like he was released early, but I’m hopeful that this will help him avoid complications and hazards that are often attendant to hospital environments. I’nm sorry that you couldn’t find a doctor to answer your questions.

    I have prayed that he would be comforted, and healed, and that God would give him wisdom in making the right decisions to expedite his healing.

  542. Thank you all. He was removed from the ventilator, then the next day had the surgery, then the chest tube was pulled yesterday (his lung had collapsed). The surgery was on his wrist, his leg fracture must be hairline (I never could get a good answer, nor get a doctor to talk to) but they put him in a walking boot, and the cervical fracture, he is in a collar. And they released him yesterday evening (seemed way early due to the chest tube), but pray that all will be ok and that my son will do what he should.

  543. Holly, praying for both your son and you.

  544. Holly, praying for your son and you.

  545. Holly…
    Praying for you and Gifford.

  546. Holly, Praying for your son and that he will have a successful surgery and a rapid recovery. Please keep us posted.

  547. Praying for God to be with you and comfort you Brian

  548. Praying for you and your son Holly!

  549. Thank you John. I really pray this draws him closer to the Lord.

  550. Holly, I have prayed for your son Gifford, and for you and the rest of your family.

    I have prayed that Gifford would be comforted and have relief from his pain, and that his surgery will be successful and that he will be delivered from the hospital as quickly as possible.

  551. My son Gifford was in an accident last night. He didn’t have his license on him, so evidently concussed, he gave his old address. They brought him in and were calling him ‘Romeo’. I’m unclear on all of it, but they tracked his girlfriend down today, and she texted us on her way to the hospital. He has multiple broken ribs, cervical fracture, leg, knee and wrist fracture. Sedated, they put a chest tube in, and some other things. They said he is stable, and have scheduled him for surgery for the fractures, but not till Monday. This is not the time for people to be in hospitals, so appreciate the prayers.

  552. Chas, it’s funny, but learning about the history of the Bible, the books, how many years it was written over (approximately), the authors, the languages, the continents, the author’s different walks of life, the different literary styles, and yet the harmony, all of that was very helpful in one way, yet the Bible is either the Word of God or not. I think if they do not see it, why are they wasting their time on ‘just another religion’? And the truth is, they haven’t explored it much. I was writing something today (never know if I’ll publish it or not), but in it I reflected on Dylan Thomas, the poet ‘rage rage against the dying of the light’, and how I had hopes where he wrote another which was ‘death no longer has dominion’, yet when I read the poem, it was a poignant reminder of the natural man trying to decipher the Scriptures. He took a small portion and massacred it with his own words.

    Pray for her, pray for more laborers in the harvest.

  553. Chas, there aren’t any apologetics ministries with which I’m both familiar and comfortable.

    I did a comment search on Charlie Campbell and couldn’t find anything here. However, if the site you went to recommends MacArthur, plus has a false gospel, that is good enough reason to avoid it.

    The problem with most apologetics ministries is the same problem with most other ministries – they say they believe the Bible is the Word of God, but they don’t teach what the Bible says about how to have eternal life, and/or what the Bible says about eternal life really being eternal, and/or what the Bible says about how to have assurance of eternal life.

    Catholicism also seems to add church tradition to scripture, which means, in reality, that they think the Bible merely contains the Word of God, and that church tradition augments it.

    Each person is different as to what would persuade them to believe something. Many have been hardened in their incorrect beliefs by people whom they seem to be “authority figures,” in both secular and religious matters.

    I have spent considerable effort trying to convince people that the Bible is real by focusing on who Jesus is, according to the Bible, and, in some cases, by appealing to Biblical prophecy being fulfilled. I haven’t met with much obvious success.

    A good question for your sister might be whether or not she thinks the Bible contains enough information about how to have eternal life. If she says yes, then you have a starting point. If she says no, the next question would be where else would one have to look? This could help determine what, if anything, she considers to be authoritative.

    I have prayed that God would grant wisdom to you and your wife in your discussions with your sister.

  554. Unbelief is so insidious.
    My wife sometimes gets drawn into long phone conversations with my (staunchly Catholic) sister. Recently, Sis made a statement that has rattled my wife because it’s so absurd on its face that it’s jarring, disorienting. It was this:

    “The Bible is just another book. It’s not special.”

    Leaving aside the serious contradictions that should raise for anyone as religious as a devout Roman Catholic, my wife has had difficulty arriving at a logic-based answer. My wife was raised Baptist, so the brazen notion that the Bible “is just another book” wasn’t entertained much. After going over the basic list with my wife; the Bible’s historicity, its unity in spite of its composition (66 books by 40 human writers over thousands of years), the record of prophecy, etc, she’s still uneasy about it. She’s looking for a quick, concise response to something she knows instinctively is just… wrong.

    Today I searched online for apologetics material, and came across the “AlwaysBeReady” site. It looked good until I checked their page on salvation. The LS “turn from sins” definition of repentance was openly stated. They also recommend materials by JMac, Torrey, and other LS culprits. That really cuts into my comfort factor about the site, whatever good points they may have. (Charlie Campbell has been discussed here before, hasn’t he?)

    Anybody know of good Bible apologetics materials from free grace teachers? Please pray for my wife that she’ll be strengthened, and able to present the Truth to my sister (who won’t even talk to me about such issues).

    Thanks to all.

  555. aristotle vargo

    praying for you brian. im sure your mom believed and was saved.

  556. Brian, I am so sorry to hear. I really think it it’s God’s longsuffering mercy that allows these things to humble people (and us) to be able to share the truth. The gospel is powerful, so I have seen/heard after the fact that someone I never thought believe, did believe before dying. Late wages… Praying that was the case for your mom.

  557. Daniel, praying with you for him before he dies that he might hear the gospel and believe.

  558. Brian, I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I lost my mother many decades ago when I was 19, but thank God she was a believer before she passed. It’s good to hear that your mom indicated that she understood what you shared with her which means she believed and is now saved possessing eternal life.

    As you already know, eternal life is a FREE GIFT with no strings attached and all it takes is a moment of simple CHILDLIKE faith/belief in the gospel to save a person – Matthew 18:3. My mother in law recently believed and got saved when me and my wife shared the simple gospel with her. She is in her 80’s, but for the longest time she refused to believe.

    When we recently shared with her the reality of hell and the Lake of Fire and the reality of heaven, she finally woke up and told us that she didn’t want to have anything to do with hell and the Lake of Fire. We prayed and asked her, “Do you believe in what God’s Son Jesus did for you and that you will instantly possess eternal life if you do?” She said, “Yes, I believe.”

    John 9:35-38 – 35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

    36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

    37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.

    38 And he said, Lord, I BELIEVE. And he worshipped him.

  559. Brian, I am so sorry for your loss. It was good that you were able to be her caregiver, and that you had a chance to share the gospel with her.

    I have prayed that God would comfort you and your family in your mother’s passing.

  560. My mother passed on fairly quickly last eve. Thank you all for your prayers. I have been her caregiver for the last 4 years following a bad stroke. I’m thankful for the Lords help in my life. I was able to witness to my mother before and after her stroke. She had a fair measure of cognitive impairment after it, but I have to trust in the Lord that she was receptive and able to understand. She did seem to indicate that she did a few times understand what I was saying.

  561. Brian, Praying for your mom that she recovers.

  562. Brian, I have prayed for your mother.

  563. Please pray for my mom. Very critical condition.

  564. aristotle vargo

    praying for your sisters dad Daniel. praying he will believe and be saved.

  565. Daniel, Praying for your 2 half sister’s dad that his heart be receptive to the gospel of John 3:16, and the simplicity of it as taught in 1 Corinthians 15:1-5, and Acts 16:30-31 and that he receive the free gift of eternal life. Please keep us posted.

  566. Daniel, I have prayed for him.

  567. Daniel, I have prayed for your half sisters and their father – including that if he doesn’t know Jesus as his Savior, he will hear the gospel and understand, that he might believe and be saved.

  568. I have two half sisters who’s dad is dying of lung cancer. He’s not feeling well at all, he can barely move. That man was previously the landlord for our apartment, i pray that he comes to the truth of the gospel before he slips away into eternity forever.

  569. William, I agree 100%. I’ve had to cut off more than a few people over the years, one of them being a sibling. I have Christian friends who don’t have an assertive bone in their body and who allow toxic, manipulative people to ruin their lives and it makes me want to pull my hair out in frustration at their apparent inability to see how they’re NOT doing these people any favors by enabling them. It’s no different than an unassertive boss allowing a toxic employee to poison an entire workplace because they “feel sorry for them” or for whatever other lame rationalization they come up with.

  570. Aritstotle, I am thankful that you are feeling better, and that you have been able to regulate your insulin through diet.

    I have prayed for your wife, and for you, that she would no longer be troubled by these things.

    Note: Please limit your replies to words of encouragement and prayer, and refrain from conjecture or opinion as to the nature and cause of apparitions.

  571. Hey guys. I’m doing fine. Pancreas was producing too much insulin which was driving my blood sugar down. I’ve been eating low carb and reducing my caffeine intake and I feel back to normal thank God!

    On a more serious note. My wife has always heard and seen supernatural things over the years. A couple hours ago she was sleeping and heard a mocking laughter. She woke and in the kitchen was a man in a black t shirt and jeans with a distorted face. He snickered and then sped off at light speed. She was scared for a moment but she is fine now. Unfortunately this is not the first time she has dealt with this.

    Please pray for us. We will be strong but it disgust me to know that they are bullying my wife and in my home. This happens every once in a while in some way or another. Please pray for us.

  572. Yes, have prayed for these needs also, hope to continue.

  573. Just wanted to let you folks know I prayed for these recent requests and needs. Hope all end well; go with Christ

  574. fryingpan9, Thanks. You know in life even as a Christian there comes a point in life in a situation like this that a Christian needs to be more assertive and put their foot down and get rid of a troublesome person by severing ties with that person forever even if that person is family.

    I had to do that with my brother in law who has a toxic personality whom I had to evict out of my apartment years ago because of his ungrateful attitude. He showed no gratitude whatsoever in the nice things that I did for him. I had to evict him and severed my ties with him for good and I’m so glad I did.

    I also had to do that with 2 very bad tenants in my apartment whom I evicted. They both also had toxic personalities. I would give them an inch, but they would take a mile. They basically took everything for granted and had this attitude of entitlement. I had to hire an attorney where the sheriff’s department had to be involved in the eviction.

    It’s like oil and water don’t mix. You can forgive a real obnoxious person when they offend you, but if that person never wakes up to reality and keeps repeating the same mistake over and over again, it’s time to draw the line and severe your ties with the person forever.

  575. William,

    I will continue to pray for Renee. I pray for her every day and have been for years. I sent her an email to let her know. I suspected the situation w/ her sister-in-law was more or less exactly as you described it. All I’ll say on that is that it’s sad, disappointing, and let’s face it, INFURIATING when someone takes advantage of someone like Renee who does so much to help the hurting and the lost. She’s very fortunate Renee is as sweet and gentle as she is.

    Rant over.

  576. William, I have prayed for Renee and the situation with her sister-in-law.

  577. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please continue to pray for Renee. She’s been through so much lately that it’s heartbreaking. She also recently lost her close friend, and now this. Please pray that God will deal with her sister in law who is responsible for this devastating fire that burned the whole house down. Her sister in law is basically a leech, a sponge, and a freeloader who has been living with Renee, but is a very LAZY deadbeat who is not paying any rent, is not working and not contributing to the welfare of the family.

    She has been warned time and again about her cigarette smoking and her blatant negligence in not putting out her cigarette butts, but she is not listening.

  578. Hi Justin, Great to hear that your Dad is home. I’ll be praying for his pain that it will go down and that he have a speedy recovery. Thanks for praying for my friend Renee. She’s been through so much lately that its heartbreaking.

  579. Justin, thanks for the update!

    I am thankful that your father is doing better, and I have prayed for his continued recovery and relief from pain.

  580. Thank you all for the prayers! My Dad made it home from the hospital 2 days ago, he’s doing much better but still in a good deal of pain. Please remember him in regards to that. Hope you all doing well. William, I said a prayer for you friend as well.

  581. My prayers also for Renee and family.

  582. Hey William. Praying for Rennes family.

  583. William, I have prayed for Renee and her situation. That is so awful.

  584. William, I have prayed for your friend and her family.

  585. Dear Brothers and Sisters in the faith, Please pray for my Free Grace Christian friend named Renee. Her house burned down to the ground about 2 days ago. She and her son, and dog survived, but their 2 cats died and a 3rd cat is missing. The fire was caused by her negligent sister in law who was smoking and did not put out the cigarette butt.

  586. Justin, Praying for your dad that he will have a speedy recovery from the surgeries and from the heart attack.

  587. Hey Justin. Praying for you, Kyle, and your whole family.

  588. Justin, I have prayed for your father, Kyle, and for you and your family.

  589. My father is in the hospital. He had his kidney removed two weeks ago and then had a massive heart attack and open heart surgery yesterday. Please keep him in your prayers. It’s been rough lately with all the health scares in my family. His name is Kyle. Thank you all so much again.

  590. Aristotle, Praying for you. I highly recommend that you see a doctor ASAP. I also have hypoglycemia and once it hits I break out in a sweat, feel lightheaded, shakiness, experience loss of strength, and have this intense craving for sugar. It happened on several occasions when I was working out with weights. I called upstairs for my wife to throw me a couple of candy bars out the window.

    Eating the candy bars helped to stabilize my condition and within about 20 minutes I’m back to normal. I think your situation is more serious and again, I recommend that you see a doctor as soon as possible.

    Please keep us posted. God bless and hope you feel better!

  591. Aristotle, it sounds like you are really having a tough time. I’ve continued to pray that you would be comforted and healed.

  592. Thank you all for your prayers.

    Yes William the other night I was so hungry and nothing could fill me. I was eating any sugary thing in sight. I woke up the next day 5 pounds lighter than the day before which scared me greatly.

    Thank you for the advice Holly. Beginning yesterday I have only had coffee, butter, spinach and pork shoulder. This has stabilized my blood glucose level to 90-100mg.
    I’ve noticed at 100 mg I feel great. 90 is ok but I still don’t feel 100%.
    Once I start to go below 90 I am in a lot of trouble. 70’s is when my heart starts racing and immense panic starts setting in and below that I feel like I might be having a heart attack and the thought of death consumes me. The fear is unbearable

    I have been so irritable and hard to be around. A lot of these low blood sugar attacks happen right as I’m about to go to bed so I have slept 9 hours in the last 3 days. I look horrible. My eyes have massive bags under them. The lack of sleep is wearing on me and I feel so overwhelmed. I want to cry sometimes but I can’t. I feel weak and useless. I’m being mean to my dogs. Every little thing just takes me over the edge. I’m anxious all the time. Honestly I’m just a wreck right now

    I’m afraid of people looking at me because I feel so ugly. I can’t workout because it immediately drops my blood sugar. Sometimes talking makes me tired. I can’t sing a hymn because it requires too much energy.

    Sorry to vent and make this so long but I just like talking to you guys and all of your advice helps me and makes me feel better

  593. Praying for you Aristotle. Eat smaller meals more frequently, and try to have some nuts available or even a jar of peanut butter. Because it has carbs, protein and fats, it works well to stabilize sugar for longer. I had gestational diabetes with all my pregnancies, so I learned a lot.

  594. Aristotle, my prayers for your health problems and that your doctor can help.

  595. fryingpan, wow. It is essential to do your own due diligence!

  596. Aristotle, It sounds like you might have hypoglycemia. Do you have sudden cravings for sugar?

  597. Re that Free Grace Tracker, it took me less than 3 minutes to find this in the statement of beliefs of a church in my county:

    “Salvation occurs when man, confronted with God’s Word (Romans 10:17; 1 Peter 1:23), repents of his
    personal sin (Acts 17:30; 1 Thessalonians 1:9) and receives God’s grace through faith in the Person and work
    of Christ (Romans 3:21-22).”


  598. Aristotle, I know it is frightening when you are experiencing a health problem that has seemed to just come out of the blue. You also have a lot going on in your life, with your job change and move, and those things can be stressful, even when they are beneficial changes. I have prayed that you will be healed, and that you won’t be anxious in the meantime.

  599. Aristotle Vargo

    Thank you so much Johninnc. These prayers really mean a lot to me. Tom, thank you so much.

    (Administrator’s note: please do not post email addresses. Please see “Guest Rules”)

    I would really like to find like minded believers. It is a spiritual desert out here. William thank you for the grace tracker. I am checking that website right now.

    Also, in the last month my blood sugar has been dropping to The point of almost fainting. This has happened 10+ times. I’m 31 years old, 5’11 and about 170 lbs. I’ve never experienced anything like this before and I don’t have diabetes that I’m aware of.. I’m going to the doctor hopefully next week. I’m hoping it’s not something very serious. It has caused me an incredible amount of fear and stress because I never know when it can strike. I am starting to see patterns though.

    One day I felt invincible and now I feel like im made out of paper. Please say a small prayer for me if you can.

  600. Aristotle,

    If you’re looking for a Free Grace church in the new area you are moving into, here is a Free Grace church tracker that tracks all Free Grace churches within all 50 states here in the U.S.


    Good luck and God bless!

  601. Aristotle, congrats. By the way, I’m not sure which suburban area you’re targeting, but I happen to know of a couple of really good, doctrinally sound Churches out there which I can recommend. You can email me if you like.

  602. Aristotle, what awesome news!

    I am very thankful that you have this new opportunity, and I have prayed for you to have a successful and happy transition to your new home and job.

  603. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Wow. The power of God. My brother in Christ was able to put in a good word for me to help me get another, much better job. Unbelievable how fast it happened. Truly shocking how powerful God is. This job will give me an opportunity to leave the city of Chicago and move to a much quieter suburb where my wife and I can put down roots and raise a family.

    Holly I really think you were right about God nudging us to move out of certain areas. I’m tired of the city life.

    Thank you all so much.

    So blessed to know all of you.

  604. Daniel, praying… Thank you Phil.

  605. Daniel, I have prayed for you – and your father.

  606. holly, my prayers for you and Jason.

  607. Hey guys, I have a problem. Next week on my day off, my dad(65) said that he’ll drive me to the hospital to get the vaccine.
    I obviously do not want it, and my dad said that biden had signed executive orders requiring employees to take the covid vaccine. Please pray for me and my dad, He already took the vaccine long ago.

  608. Thanks everyone for praying. We’re moving slow, and seem to have found a good follow up doctor for Jason. Sometimes I feel like fresh eyes are a good thing.

  609. Holly, I am praying for both of you.

  610. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Whoa Holly I’m glad you are ok and Jason is doing better. Praying for you guys.

  611. Holly, I have prayed for Jason, and for you. What a harrowing series of events!

    I am glad that you were able to confirm, via your personal account, what many of us have suspected is happening in many places.

  612. We have been in Idaho. On Aug 30th, we were struck by a 70ish woman, who u-turned in front of us. She must have been in shock, she was monotone, but her concern was for her car. Not that she pulled a U-turn across a double set of double lines on a two-lane highway. We were both sore, my husband’s leg was sore, that part of the car took the brunt of the broadside collision. But we just thought we were sore. The next day he was swollen and limping, by the following day we went to a chiropractor, he could barely walk, then urgent care who gave him a walking boot, they took an X-ray, couldn’t see any fractures and said he had severe soft tissue damage. We went back to the hotel, and he took a nap, a long one, and I woke him up to drink some water and see if he wanted something to drink. When he wouldn’t drink much, I felt his head, it felt a little warm. But I had a thermometer, he did not have a fever. I checked his leg, and it seemed redder and more swollen, and warm to the touch. I tried to get him to sit up but he could not. I thought maybe he had a concussion, but he just couldn’t. I took his temp again, it was 99.6 I think, and called the paramedics, because I could not help him stand. By the time they got there, he was over 100, and by the time he got to the hospital was 103.

    Of course they thought Covid, but in the hotel room, I explained to the paramedics to examine his leg, one was hot, the other was not. He had cellulitis, and ended up in the hospital 6 days. What a trip…

    Anyways, while we were there, I was able to talk to and meet some believers in nurses, all who were standing against forced vaxs. Made some contacts, and the Governor’s assistant asked me to write up my experience (the hospitals are claiming full ER’s etc. due to Covid. Long story, but same thing in WA (my cousin is a nurse at two hospitals there, and my Uber driver the first night worked at another). All say the same thing. Everything that comes in is C. They tried to say Jason had it, and I said, NO, He does not. This is an infection in or on his leg. They did test him and it was not what they said.

    I won’t go into much else here, but to say, thank you for your prayers, as now we’re navigating moving some things (we got a place here) and he isn’t really able to do too much.

  613. John,

    My apologies. I have to admit that I get a little carried away in my zeal to expose the evils of those whom we are supposed to “trust” in regards to our health and well being, but thank you for posting my last comment. I just want other believers to know how evil our medical and governmental authorities are and their low regard for the sanctity of human life. Again, my apologies John.

  614. William, with all due respect, we have moved beyond the realm of prayer requests.

    I had overridden my earlier desire to not administer comments until after September 5, having made an exception for prayer requests.

  615. Thank you Holly and John. It is so obvious that the globalists/eugenicists are using this so called “vaccine” as a weapon for global genocide to reduce the human population. Have you both checked out the incriminating statements that “Dr” Fraudci Fauxi made back in 2012 in the the American Society for Microbiology journal, Sept/Oct 2012, Volume 3, Issue 5?? Fauci’s article was entitled, “Research on Highly Pathogenic H5N1 Influenza Virus: The Way Forward”

    Fauci states: “The voluntary moratorium on gain of function research related to the transmissibility of highly pathogenic H5N1 influenza virus should continue”….

    “Putting aside the specter of bioterrorism for the moment, consider this hypothetical scenario, an important gain of function experiment involving a virus with serious pandemic potential is performed in a well regulated, world class laboratory by experienced investigators, but the information from the experiment is then used by ANOTHER SCIENTIST WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME TRAINING AND FACILITIES AND IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE SAME REGULATIONS. In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, WHAT IF THAT SCIENTIST BECOMES INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS, WHICH LEADS TO AN OUTBREAK AND ULTIMATELY TRIGGERS A PANDEMIC?”

    “Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario–however remote–should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?”

    Fauci goes on and states, “Scientists working in this field might say–as indeed I have said–THAT THE BENEFITS OF SUCH EXPERIMENTS AND THE RESULTING KNOWLEDGE OUTWEIGH THE RISKS.”

    My comment – When Fraudci mentioned about “another scientist who does not have the same training and facilities and is not subject to the same regulations”, does that not sound like it would be a scientist from the Wuhan Lab? It has been stated that the Wuhan Lab has a somewhat inferior facility where viruses are susceptible to leakage. In other words, the Wuhan lab is not up to par in regards to safety and security standards. This reminds me of Chernobyl where it was a combination of human error and an inferior facility that was not up to par in regards to safety that resulted in that great nuclear disaster.

    This is what Bill Gates had to say regarding the worldwide population back in 2010 at a TED Talk, a non profit-organization devoted to spreading ideas. Gates states, “First, we’ve got population, the world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, WE COULD LOWER THAT BY, PERHAPS, 10 OR 15 PERCENT. But there, we see an increase of about 1.3.”

    MY comment – Why would vaccines “lower” the human population when they are supposed to improve health and prolong people’s life spans???? Improved health care and reproductive health services would also prolong people’s life spans.

  616. William, praying for you and your situation as well.

  617. Praying for you too William, and all here. May He go before us and fight this battle. And may we be ever in prayer for each step.

  618. Aristotle, praying for you. Sometimes I’m wondering if God is nudging His people to move out of some of these areas. I’ve seen so many move as of late. I am in Idaho right now, we got here a couple days ago. My cousin is a nurse who works in two hospitals, they are looking at the same, and planning on moving possibly. My niece works with the reserves, and will leave, even dishonorably if they try to force her.

    Mat Staver of Liberty counsel has a video I suggest you watch, because he’ll tell you that you need to put it in your own words. One of the things they’re doing is outright denying that the vax were developed with Aborted babies, or saying, so what, it’s 30 years old. You need to have several reasons, life is in the blood, your body is the Temple of the Lord, and so forth, provide the Scriptures in context. I believe Staver has a form you can follow and put it into your own words. Fight. Fight by writing representatives, CC like minded people so they know there are many who feel the same. Ask them to write. I know we don’t have many it seems, but if God is for us, who can be against us. He is with us, that is great consolation. And we are saved and will be with Him forever. Praying for your needs.

    Disclaimer: I do not know the man’s religious beliefs, so only referring for the legal advice on exemptions:


  619. Aristotle,

    You should try filing for a medical or religious exemption or both. I did both in my department. If my department denies both, I will hire a human rights attorney to fight this tyranny, but if that fails, I will lose my job. If I lose my job, so be it. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we don’t need poison contaminating and damaging it.

    I’m sure you heard about the 153 hospital employees of Houston Methodist Hospital including physicians and nurses who lost their jobs when they refused the jab. Even though the corrupt judge ruled in favor of the hospital mandate, the fired employees are not giving up and are still fighting hoping to get their case up to the Supreme Court.

    There are quite a few services that help those of us who don’t want the vaccine like Liberty Counsel, Employees For Informed Consent, and the National Vaccine Information Center. You can Google their websites.

    Hope this helps, God bless!


  620. Please note: although the expreacherman site is not being actively administered again until September 5, we will make an exception for prayer requests.

  621. Aristotle, I have prayed for you and your wife, and for your deliverance through this ordeal.

    I know some others on here were aware of approaches to exemptions, so perhaps that is an avenue you might pursue.

  622. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys. My boss messaged me this morning. He is considering making the vaccine mandatory. I know him. He will definitely do it. I’m more than likely about to lose my job. I’m a real estate broker in Chicago. Chances are mostly every brokerage here will do the same thing. Businesses here are mandating the vaccine without even being forced to do so. They want to market themselves as 100% vaccinated to make more money. Ah the last days… Anyway’s.. I knew this was coming and I know God will see me through. Please, whatever little prayer you can say for my wife and I would be great. I feel like we’re surrounded at this point.

  623. I once had difficulty with my vision after an extremely vigorous workout, followed by too much screen time.

  624. Daniel, praying. You might ask some questions like how much time she was on the phone. Had she taken any medication, etc. (don’t answer, just questions to ask her and share with her doctor). I don’t know her age, but she might need an eye doc. My husband was dyslexic and had that issue, but it sounds like something new for you. Pray for each small thing.

  625. Justin, praying, and thank the Lord that it seems that all can be removed. Asking the Lord for a very skilled surgeon. God bless you all.

  626. Praying for your mother and hope that her vision problem improves.

  627. Daniel, I have prayed for your mother.

    I have experienced that sensation and it is very unsettling.

  628. I’m a little worried for my mom, she came into my room and told me that her vision is getting weird. She said that when she was reading on her phone, the words were dancing or something like that. I’m always on edge, so many “what ifs”. Please pray for her.

  629. Justin, thanks for the update. I will pray for your father and mother, and for you.

  630. Thank you all again for the prayers. My Dad goes to have his kidney and part of his bladder removed next week. It’s a low grade tumor and they believe they can get it all at once. They will also be able to repair a hernia he has while doing the procedure. Please remember him and my mother in your prayers. Thank you all again very much. I appreciate you all especially John, Holly and this website. It’s been a source of comfort for me over the years. Hope you all are doing well.

  631. Yerbae, many of us are accused regarding not being ‘in a church’. In fact even some well meaning churches don’t seem to understand that some of us have looked long and hard, and it’s not about ‘being perfect in everything’ but about having the gospel right first. So many of us relate and week with you.

  632. Thank you John!

  633. yerbae’, I am glad that you found encouragement from God’s promise to us as believers.

    I have prayed again for God to comfort and strengthen you and your wife, and to continue to bless your marriage.

    The enemy does not want you serving God. He may be trying to goad you into compromising with a church that undermines the gospel while you are emotionally vulnerable.

    From our statement of faith:

    The early church, under the leadership of the Apostles, was doctrinally sound. Conversely, many churches today are not doctrinally sound and actually undermine one or more of the essential tenets of eternal life received by grace through faith in Christ, eternal security, or the proper source of assurance. It is dangerous to participate in any such churches. While finding a good local church is a blessing, that may not be a viable option. Meeting with small groups of other like-minded believers at homes, through media, or even online forums may be the best alternative.

  634. Thank you John and Holly! John, what you said, about God holding me in His hands, brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for those encouraging words.
    I am being attacked, because we are not in a church, and I am not serving God in a church. And also, being married 40 yrs, but being attacked in the same area’s, that when we are at a low point, tends to rear it’s ugly head.

  635. Yerbae, I don’t think I can add much to what John said so beautifully. Praying for you, for guidance and peace.

  636. yerbae’, I have prayed for you, that God would comfort and encourage you and your wife, and that He would bless your marriage.

    Retirement is a major life change, and so having to process a flood of emotions, particularly in the early stages, is very common. You will find no shortage of advice on how to stay busy and connected during retirement, so I won’t add any, other than that there is no off-she-shelf solution, and that it will take time to adjust. I retired a few months before the COVID mania started, so I can definitely relate.

    The enemy who is attacking you has already been defeated. Remember that God is holding you firmly in His hand, and will never let you go.

  637. I need prayer please. I retired about 3 months ago, and I am having a very difficult time with it, even though I have found a couple of part-time jobs. I am depressed and I am being attacked by the enemy big time. I am trying to be in the word, but even that is a chore lately. We still haven’t found a church to go to in our area, that doesn’t twist the gospel, and that is weighing me down also. It’s affecting our marriage.

  638. Some of you have asked after Ron Shea. We spoke for awhile yesterday, and he asks for prayer regarding an upcoming appeal (if I have it right what it is). As we all know, there are many unjust judges in this world. Sometimes we have to use the world system. God can turn anyone, so pray that this judge will be convicted of any unfairness, and rule properly.

  639. katmazdobelieve – Praying for you friend.

    Even the disciples had doubt, fear, unfaithfulness, lack of belief.

    Our faith is strengthened by the Word. Sometimes we just forget that, or we get a little too commonplace about it, or distracted with the cares and distractions of this world.

    Do a word study in His Word. Choose something like faith for example and just write down or copy some that stand out to you, but look at them in context. Thank God for the things you see. Reiterate to Him that you are thankful and believe what He said to you. ❤

  640. chas, I know your advice was well-intentioned, and that people doing their own research on this issue is advisable.

    Again, thanks for sharing your experience. And, you didn’t cross any lines.

  641. Johninnc…

    My apologies for breaking any rules, it wasn’t my intent to start a thread on SSRIs, let alone provide medical advice, only to encourage anyone considering advice that they may already have to “do your own research” as some say.

    The SSRI issue is almost as significant to me as the issue of LS, since misinformation on both “messed me up” so badly for so many years.

    Again, sorry for crossing any lines.

  642. chas, I think getting folks back to the essence of the gospel message is a good idea. The focus of a person presented with the gospel needs to be on Christ – who He is and what He has done – rather than the “what if I…” questions, which are a distraction.

    I think anyone should be very circumspect about diagnoses of psychiatric disorders and their proposed pharmaceutical interventions. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Having said that, I do not want this to be the start of a thread on this topic. From our “Guest Rules – Disclaimer” page:

    No web page or email response should be construed as medical counseling, therapy, legal, or other professional advice in any way whatsoever.

  643. I think trying to figure out the precise nature of “the unforgivable sin” is a rabbit hole, a distraction designed to do just what it’s doing with that 15 year old; get his mind working in circles. It basically involves rejecting the Holy Spirit’s testimony regarding Jesus Christ–the Gospel itself–to the point of death. The remedy is to simply believe in Christ’s sacrifice for one’s self, which is a lot easier to do when all the LS nonsense about “repenting of sin to be saved” is swept aside.

    Regarding OCD, as someone who was “diagnosed” with it in 1996, and after being on an SSRI (Prozac) for 16 years after that, I would warn anyone against taking any SSRI. They can cause worse problems in the long run. I’ve been “off” of Prozac for over 8 years and I’ve still not gotten over it’s worst effects completely.

    Other psychotropic drugs have equally dubious histories. Anyone wondering about how these drugs came to be may want to checkout the work of Robert Whitaker. I don’t recommend some of his proposed solutions to their problems, but he has researched their history well.

  644. Justin, thanks for the update.

  645. Thank you all very much for the prayers. We got news yesterday that it is a low grade tumor. They’re still trying to figure the best way to remove it. William- I also prayed for the high schooler you mentioned. I, myself struggled with intrusive thoughts as a teen and adult and know how tormenting it can be. Knowing that your thoughts flow through and not dwelling on them can help. Acknowledging that its only a thought and moving on, helps to become more accustomed to not being upset by them. Almost like conditioning the response. The more you try not to have them, the more you will because you’re thinking of it. I’ve learned through therapy it’s best to acknowledge the thought, and move on. Like, ” oh that was a thought, like many others, it isn’t true” Prayer and Therapy will definitely help. Hope it goes well for him.

  646. Praying for him, poor guy… I recently dealt with a pastor who was obsessing with the same thing. I think what a lot miss too, is the Leadership of Israel had a service or job, in which they were to recognize who the Messiah was and they were to hear Him, and notify His people. They knew the time He was supposed to arrive by the prophecies. They refused to believe, or acknowledge His miracles. Not so sure it wasn’t they didn’t believe He was the Messiah, more like they just did not want Him to rule over them. They didn’t want to lose the power and position they had with the Vineyard (Israel – Isa 5). Instead they decided to kill the Son.

    I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
    And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. Deut 18:18-19

    I agree with you, they had a responsibility to recognize those signs and wonders and declare Him the Messiah to the people, and even when they did not, God still had the High Priest prophesy regarding Jesus. (reminds me of Balaam and the donkey).

    And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. John 11:49-53

  647. William, I have prayed for the young man to whom you have been witnessing.

    It is great that you care enough for him to try to help him, and have gone to great lengths to try to assuage his fears.

  648. Dear John and all brothers and sisters in Christ, Please pray for a 15 year old high schooler that is suffering from very OCD (severe obsessive compulsive disorder). This person has an irrational fear that he has committed the unforgivable sin aka “blasphemy against the Holy Spirit” and is utterly tormented with intrusive thoughts about it 7 days a week non stop.

    I tried my best assuring this student that this sin in the context of Matthew 12 and Mark 3 cannot be committed today for it requires Jesus’ physical presence performing miracles/healings in order for a person to commit it. I also told him that his very concern at having committed it is proof positive that he has not. I tried explaining over and over again that many people in the church are very ignorant when it comes to what the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit really is. The unforgivable sin is called the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit which is recorded in the context of Matthew 12:22-32, Mark 3:22-30, and Luke 12:8-10. It is the attributing of the miracles/healings, and exorcisms performed by Jesus to the power of Satan. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were personal eyewitnesses to the many miracles/healings/exorcisms performed by Jesus which produced no faith in them whatsoever.

    In spite of all those great things that Jesus did, they still stubbornly would not believe or acknowledge Him as God, but instead falsely accused Jesus of being “demon possessed” and “performing exorcisms by the power of Satan” which shows their utterly faulty logic. Then we have the faulty logic of the unbelieving Jews of John 10:31-39 which is evident in the fact that despite Jesus performing many great miracles/healings in their presence they refused to believe that He was God, but falsely accused Him of being only a “mere man.” Again, the unbelieving Jews refused to believe that Jesus is God in John 12:37 despite His many miracles and healings in their presence.

    Even when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, the Pharisees and chief priests still did not believe that Jesus is God, but planned on killing both Jesus and Lazarus – John 11:45 -53, John 12:9-11. If the Pharisees and the unbelieving Jews were to persist in their stubborn state of mind and dying in that very state, then they would have committed the unforgivable sin.

    Now, I tried explaining all this information to him over and over again, and even referred him to an expositional article on the unforgivable sin written from a Free Grace perspective and even referred him to a book written specifically on the unforgivable sin, this student still obsessively fears that he has committed this sin.

    I told him that he needs to see a psychiatrist and take meds to control his OCD. His parents have set up an appointment so please pray that it goes well. Your prayers are appreciated.

  649. Holly, thanks for the update. I’m glad it went well.

  650. Thank you for those who prayed. The surgery for his heart yesterday was regarding a pacemaker whose wires had become detached and one side was not working. We did not know if they were going to be able to re-feed the wires, he had a terrible time last time, and the potential was that he’d have to open his side and put it direct. Thankfully he did not go that far, and he said he was pleased with the outcome, and one of the wires (that needed to be removed), he said dislodged by itself and easily pulled out, so that made it a lot easier. His surgery was delayed about 4-1/2 hours, so we were a little concerned, but all is well, thank you all.

  651. Justin, praying for your dad Kyle. Keep praying for the little, seemingly insignificant things as you go through this. I’m asking for it to be benign, God willing, and that you might keep your mind stayed on Him, your eyes fixed on Jesus (Is 26:3; Heb 12:2). Take heart!

  652. Justin, Praying for your father and for you. Please keep us posted regarding your dad’s biopsy results. Hang in there, brother. You’re not the only one. My mother had breast cancer, liver cancer, and bone cancer.

  653. Justin, I have prayed for your father, and for you.

  654. Please pray for my father Kyle, he went in earlier for an exploratory surgery to see if a mass in his left kidney is cancerous. Thank you all, and God bless.

  655. So thankful to hear that, it worked wonders for my old dog’s allergies.

  656. Aristotle, thanks for the update. That’s great news!

  657. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Thank you all for your prayers! Pup is doing fine and i have him on a very selective diet to avoid this happening again!

  658. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Thank you Holly! My wife gave a him a benadryl wrapped in a piece of cheese and he was better in a matter of hours!

  659. Aristotle, Praying for your puppy dog that the hives will go away.

  660. Aristotle, dogs can take benadryl, and you can look online for what dosage per pound of dog. Praying.

  661. Aristotle L Vargo

    Thanks guys. All the vets in my area are appointment only so my only option is the emergency vet which is an insane amount of money. I will take him if need be though.

  662. I have prayed as well, Aristotle.

  663. Aristotle, I have prayed that God would comfort your little pup, and take the hives away from him.

  664. Aristotle L Vargo

    Hello everyone. Would you please pray for my new puppy? We got him Saturday and yesterday he had some type of allergic reaction to something that is giving him hives. Please pray that he is healed. He’s not scratching a lot and he’s still very energetic. It just hurts my heart to see him covered in hives/welts 😦

  665. Katmazdobelieve, I’m continuing to pray for you.

  666. katmazdobelieve

    Hello everyone,
    Daniel, Hope the sleep issue is improving.
    I pray for everyone here regularly.
    I know all of you pray for everyone as well.
    I’m just fatigued from all that is going on.
    Please keep me and mine in your prayers.


  667. My prayers too Daniel

  668. Aristotle L Vargo

    Daniel I have prayed for you to have better sleep!

  669. Daniel, I have prayed you’ll find the solutions to your sleeplessness issues.

    William, you nailed it on the head. I tried something with melatonin in it as a sleep aid years ago and . . . Wow. Once was enough. Super vivid nightmares. Really freaky. Though to be fair, I was told that is sometimes a side effect. Wasn’t willing to see if my body just had to get use to it, LOL.

  670. Hi Daniel,

    I’ve taken melatonin for years and In my opinion, it is one of the best natural sleep aids. But of course, everyone is different and will react differently to different supplements even if they’re natural or organic. We’re all built just a little differently on the inside and out.

  671. Daniel, I have prayed that you would be restful and not anxious, and that you won’t have any adverse effects from the supplement that you are taking.

  672. Hey guys, I have trouble sleeping at times so I bought this nature made sleep supplement which has melatonin, magnesium and L-Theanine. I’ve heard of L-theanine lowering blood pressure and i generally have anxiety for my health, etc. I’m hoping to the Lord that this supplement won’t cause any negative reactions in my body.

  673. Aristotle L Vargo

    prayed for you kate

  674. Kate, Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Another instance of doubt/uncertainty can be seen in “Doubting Thomas”. I have my moments of doubt/uncertainty as well. Of course, these are not indications of being “unsaved” as Calvinism would falsely teach, but that we are human.

  675. katmazdobelieve

    Thanks. It seems like I am calmer and my mind less troubled after I ask for prayer from the expreacher man crew.

    That did help. It was edifying. Thank you.


  676. katmazdobelieve, Praying for you. We are all still human and have our occasional bouts of doubt and uncertainty which is normal. Did you know that John the Baptist had his moments of doubt and uncertainty? In John 1:29, JB enthusiastically announces to everyone that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, but then in Matthew 11:3 and Luke 7:19 JB expressed doubt and uncertainty regarding whether Jesus is really the Savior.

    It’s interesting to note that Scripture says that JB was filled with the Holy Spirit while still in his mother’s womb – Luke 1:15, but then later he expresses doubt and uncertainty regarding who Jesus really is.

    King David had his moments of doubt and uncertainty as well. King David writes in Psalm 9:9-10 -” The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A REFUGE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE. 10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, HAST NOT FORSAKEN THEM THAT SEEK THEE.”

    BUT look at what King David writes in the very next Psalm, which is Psalm 10:1:

    “Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? WHY HIDEST THOU THYSELF IN TIMES OF TROUBLE?

    We see the same thing again in Psalm 22:1-2 where he writes:


    BUT then in the very next Psalm, David writes:

    Psalm 23:1-4 – “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

    Hope this helps, God bless!

  677. katmazdobelieve, I have prayed for you, that you would not dwell on doubtful thoughts and would not continue to be troubled by them.

  678. katmazdobelieve

    Hey everyone,
    Please pray for me. I’m struggling with some doubt/uncertainty and I know that that frame of mind is sinful and not edifying.
    I am praying also but I am still finding myself struggling.

  679. Aristotle, what a nice thing to say, and we feel the same.

    To the rest regarding the shot, the conditioning, not the mark, people being made afraid who have received it, etc., I agree, but I do want to do what John says about keeping this post about prayer.

    I pray we’ll all be wise on what we say or do, praying for each thing, warning others in love.

    I pray for you all, we have a tidal wave of evil that God is holding back, and we have the Holy Spirit in us, the restraining influence (I believe) in this world, so I pray we will be walking in the Spirit more often, and keeping our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith.

  680. William, people who don’t want these injections should not be forced to get them. I hope that I will stand firm in defending that right.

    The world’s powers will take as many of our freedoms as we yield to them. Our fellow citizens have, by and large, determined that they no longer want to live as free citizens. Starting with masks and lockdowns, very few people have spoken out in the name of defending personal and economic freedom (which go hand-in-hand). Property rights have been suspended writ large, as have freedom of assembly and freedom of speech. Hardly anyone has even batted an eye.

    Having said all of this, I am ready to bring this discussion to a close.

    Note to all: I think the concerns about the COVID injections have been fully registered here. Please refrain from additional comments of that nature.

  681. John and Chas, I agree with you both that the jab is not the mark. However, there is a priming element of Revelation 13:17 that some companies and organizations are trying to mandate. I have a co-worker whose spouse works for a passenger airline company where the CEO was recently discussing about mandating the jab for all employees including pilots, flight attendants, etc, for continued employment.

    I work for the public school system and I am already seeing this priming practice taking place. Eventually, if this comes to us, we as believers need to draw the line and take a stand and say “NO” standing up in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. It may get to the point for some of us to hire an attorney to fight this. Our bodies, our choice.

    The right to refuse a medical tyranny is reaffirmed under the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights – 2005 which states, “Any preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information.”

    A mandated jab would violate the NUREMBERG CODE, which many consider as one of the most important documents in the history of medical research ethics standards. The foremost ethical principle of the Nuremberg Code is as relevant today as it was first made back in 1947: “The voluntary, informed consent of the human subject is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.”

    With this unapproved experimental jab, INFORMED CONSENT is absolutely essential because it affirms the human right of the individual to accept or reject. Informed consent stands as the moral and ethical barrier to ensure that governments do not pervert medicine.

  682. Chas, I agree – it is critically important that these injections not be conflated with the mark.

    We should all continue to be careful to clarify that.

  683. Johninnc…

    The reasons you listed for being wary of the C-19 vaxes are exactly the same as mine, regardless of the controversies about ingredients.
    The thing which crops up in many discussions that I find very dangerous is an issue which impacts the Gospel itself; the idea that these vaccines are wholly or in part tantamount to the mark of the beast. I think that could very well undermine the faith of Christians or anyone hearing the Gospel who have already received the Jab.

    One thing this whole kerfuffle has demonstrated is how misunderstood the MotB is.

  684. Aristotle, we are so glad you are here and that you find the site to be a blessing.

    We will all meet one day soon.

  685. Aristotle L Vargo

    Thanks johninnc! I’ve never met you in person but you are one of my best friends! I enjoy coming to this website because of all the love I feel from everyone! I love you guys! God bless all of you!!!

  686. Aristotle, Praying for your brother and his girlfriend and hope that the puppies will be provided good homes where they will be cared for and loved. I’m on the same page with you regarding the vaccines. All my co workers have taken it despite my warnings to them. I am one of the few who has not taken it, but everyone else is rushing in line blindly to get it.

  687. Aristotle, I have prayed for your brother and his girlfriend.

    Also for you and your older brother in the face of pressure for unwanted injections.

  688. Aristotle Logan Vargo

    Hey guys. My brother and his girlfriend just lost their dog. She died yesterday. She had puppies a little over a month ago. Puppies are doing well. Please pray for them. They need all the help they can get. Just a little short prayer if you don’t mind.

    As far as the vaccine goes I’m in the Chicago and they are pushing it at my job. My older brother is the only one left at his job who hasn’t gotten it and they are pressuring him too. Let’s be honest, we knew this day would come. Personally, i’ve done my research and will never, ever get that vaccine. There is clearly an agenda. My facebook is full of people taking photos of themselves with the vaccine card. This is strange behavior. I’ve also noticed many saved brethren are not getting it which makes me wonder if the Holy Spirit is giving us a warning…. Also, many fully vaccinated people are still getting covid. If they fire me for refusing the vaccine, so be it. The Lord will take care of me and my family. There is nothing in the world that could make me take that vaccine. God will always be there to help us no matter what happens! They can take whatever they want! I will always have Jesus! A section of one of my favorite psalms below!

    Psalm 2 KJV
    2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
    2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
    3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
    4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

  689. Administrator’s note:

    It is beyond the scope of this ministry to make medical evaluations or recommendations.

    I am personally leery of the COVID injections for a number of reasons, including the following:

    1. It is not clear to me that people who have already had a disease should be “vaccinated” against the same disease.

    2. It is not clear to me why low-risk groups (e.g, children, infants, and most young adults) should receive these injections.

    3. It is not clear to me why virtually everyone should be given an experimental medical treatment that hasn’t been fully approved.

    4. The injections are being pushed using extreme high-pressure, heavy-handed tactics.

    Having said all of the above, each person should carefully consider what he thinks is best in his particular circumstances.

    I would ask that we stick with prayer requests in this thread.

  690. Chas, There is an honest Christian doctor named Dr. Carrie Madej who is very experienced and knows what goes into these “vaccines” that the pharmaceuticals are presently calling “95% effective” and “safe.” These vaccines contain substances called “Hydrogel” and a substance called “Luciferase”.

    The name of the latter one is very revealing and has luminescent qualities for the purpose of tracking people. There is a sermon by Pastor Billy Crone on Covid-19 of Las Vegas who is Free Grace. This sermon of course has been banned on YT and censored and can only be heard on Rumble.com. Anyway, at the 54:12 segment of the sermon, Dr. Carrie Madej gives the truth about what the ingredients are in these “vaccines”. What she honestly reveals is shocking and when looked at from a Biblical perspective, lines up perfectly with the prophetic truths of the book of Revelation.

  691. William…
    Reading over your post of 4/6, I couldn’t help but note how I could have posted exactly the same fears. The remedy is exactly what others have said here; Trust in the Lord, rest in Him. I’ve prayed for you.
    I’ve been trying to get at the truth about the various vaxes by researching the ‘net. What a rabbit hole, huh? Of course, the official info is all sunshine and roses. The other side–which I think is far less motivated by $$–is nonetheless harder to sort. My biggest concern was the J&J vax since it has been connected with aborted fetal tissue, but I’d found some detailed info that said “Not exactly…” Seems it was developed using a synthetic line of cells that was made from another synthetic line made from another… back 20 years or so ago from another synthetic line that was developed somehow from a line made using fetal tissue. The bottom line is that there’s no actual fetal tissue in the vaccine itself. It is interesting that recently a huge batch of the J&J stuff was “ruined” somehow and a significant shortage of it is anticipated.
    I’m still researching. We ALL need to pray for each other’s search.

  692. EmeraldLeaf.

    That is one analogy I think of often; Peter and the stormy seas. Taking our eyes off of Jesus. Thanks for bringing it up again. Reminds me of Ps 107:25-32 and also this from Ps 89.

    8 O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee?
    or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
    9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea:
    when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

  693. William praying. When I was younger, I worked at the state hospital in town. I learned a few things, but removing outside information, i.e., news, f.b., Twitter, instagram, T.V., and on and on is a very good thing to do when you are stressed. Replace that time with time in His Word. We all need a break. When my kids are stressed, I remind them, put down the phone, turn off the t.v., pick up the Word. I remind myself of the same. If I find myself getting too stressed, I get what I call ‘Feet time’ (Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus, hearing His Word – Lk 10:38-42).

    Pray for everything and don’t worry about tomorrow (Jesus said). Just keep praying when you are worried about something, tell Jesus and then tell Him again if it comes back up. Try to find some Scripture that relates to hold on to.

    25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt 6

  694. Emerald, we know that everything that happens, God either causes or allows. We can’t always know which is which, but we know that He doesn’t ordain bad things that people do.

    We should remember that nothing will separate us from the love of Christ, and have peace and comfort in that.

  695. emeraldleafministries

    William, I’ve prayed for you. I understand a little of what you’re going through, we just have to remember that the Lord doesn’t want us to fear. That may be hard sometimes, but we must trust and believe Him. Being human, we need those reminders. When I fall off track, I ask if I’m believing Him and trusting? That’s the faith walk. He will make all things right in the end, we just need to learn through it all to make us better, to endure so as to be strengthened and walk nearer with our Savior. We all have moments, but we want to be progressing in the right direction. You and me are a work in progress, just as we all are, and just have to learn to be patient and embrace God’s perfect plan. Does He fail? No. Did Peter take his eyes off the Lord? Yes, and that’s when he began to sink. These are the kinds of things that help me, and I hope you can put them to work as well.

  696. William, I have prayed for you! Particularly that you would not worry about what pressure the world may bring to bear to compel people who don’t want these injections to get them.

    A lot of people seem to want to rob us of the agency over how we live our lives, particularly as it has to do with COVID PPE and injections. I pray that the injections will not become compulsory in general, and in particular that we will continue to have access to employment and normal health care without having to accede to getting the injections. People of good will have the opportunity to take a stand against this medical tyranny, and I am hopeful that we will have lots of company in resisting forced injections.

    We have the comfort of knowing that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, and that He will soon appear for us. There are so many others who don’t have that hope.

  697. Dear John and all brothers and sisters in the faith, Please pray for me. I suffer from OCD and have had this disorder all my life since childhood. (obsessive compulsive disorder). You know, my OCD is acting up bad. I’m scared that they’re going to make the vaccines mandatory where we all are forced to take it. I have read many cases of people taking it and dying shortly, others getting permanently injured, others having seizures, and very serious anaphylactic reactions where they end up in the ICU. This is really stressing me out bad and is becoming my worst nightmare. These cases are very real and my biggest fear is that I will eventually be forced to take it and end up like those people.

    My OCD fear is also that those who don’t take it will have their employment terminated, their health insurance stripped away where we will be denied access to our meds, etc, etc. Please pray for me. This has been overwhelming me bad as it seems like our Lord’s return at the Rapture is taking forever.

  698. Aristotle, thanks for checking in!

    I am doing well, and hope that you are.

  699. Aristotle L Vargo

    Hope you all are well! Miss you guys!!!

  700. Thank you, I’m praying for Christy every day too.

  701. Holly, I have continued to pray fo Christy and her family.

  702. Thanks everyone. Our women’s group has kept a list of Supplements, even how to take them (like Quercetin with fat, or D3 in the morning, or Zinc with a couple ounces of Tonic water – supposedly helps with cells). We’ve added over time, including not just OTC but the regimens with RX, and Medicines given in hospital as well as steroidal breathing treatments. Home treatments like percussive, etc. If anyone would like a copy of the doc, if John is willing I can send to him and he can share. Only if he feels it’s appropriate.

    Please keep praying for my friend, she was mentioned on Northland today, it is Pastor Trout’s wife, Christy.

  703. Holly…

    Have prayed for your friend and will continue.
    Yes, sadly, people with existing medical issues are more susceptible to C-19 than others. That’s another reason we were concerned with my wife because she is in her 60s and has had pneumonia in the past, even to the point of kidney shutdown. But now she’s healthy now; 2 for 2 Covid negative, so that documentation is nice. We have taken D3, Zinc and other supplements for many years. (Which reminds me, it’s Saturday. Time to refill my pill container.)

    Many thanks again to all for prayer.

  704. Holly, I have prayed for your friend.

  705. Holly, Sorry to hear of your friend with covid. I will pray for her. Ideally, the best treatment would be hydroxychloroquine coupled with the antibiotic Zithromycin (Zithromax), Vitamin D3, and Zinc, but unfortunately the FDA, and most hospitals and medical facilities have banned the use of hydroxychloroquine which has been proven very effective against covid. It’s all because of politics that this approved drug has been banned.

  706. A friend of mine who I’ve not met in person, but also a laborer in the harvest, has been very sick with Covid. She has underlying conditions and it may have caused some other issues. Please pray for wisdom on choosing which hospital, treatment, doctors and peace and comfort in all. Thank you.

  707. Chas, Praise God her test results came back negative! That’s good news! As a strong suggestion, there are many physicians who recommend that everyone take lots of Vitamin D3 and Zinc to help boost their immune system during this covid crisis. My and and my family have been taking this combination along with a good multi-vitamin supplement.

  708. chas, that’s great news!

    Thanks for the update and advice.

  709. John and William, and anyone else, thank you for your prayers.

    The wife’s test result came this morning: NEGATIVE. She can now go back to work once she shows her boss the print-out of her result.
    Strange thing, i was most apprehensive about a false positive, since we knew her “headache” was actually a migraine; not C-19 related. Gotta be very specific with one’s language when answering these questionnaires.

    Again, many thanks to all.

  710. William, I know a lot of people are concerned about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. I don’t want to persuade, nor dissuade anyone from taking the vaccine, as that is well above my area of expertise.

    Note to all: We should be careful about any and all information that is being disseminated about this coronavirus. The insistence with which the dominant narrative is being foisted upon us, as well as the suppression of any opposition to that narrative, should give us all a heightened sense of awareness that the measures being taken by our governments are not necessarily in our best interests. That being said, I don’t want expreacherman to become a forum for debating COVID information or disinformation.

    Proverbs 14:15: The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.

  711. Chas, I’m praying for you and your wife. This whole covid scamdemic is getting ridiculous. I’ve noticed people shy away from me when I cough, clear my throat, and sneeze even when I’m wearing a respirator mask which gives the best protection. I recently was tested as required by my employer and the result was negative. The number of covid cases and deaths have been greatly exaggerated.

    There are cases of illness and deaths that have nothing to do with covid, but it gets listed as “covid”. I read that many hospitals receive reimbursement or funding every time a patient death is listed as “covid.” Chas, don’t let your wife’s employer pressure her into taking the vaccine which has done more harm than good.

    So far 10 people have died from taking the vaccine and 3,150 medical personnel have experienced serious adverse reactions from the vaccine where some ended up in the hospital ICU. Many years have passed and they have not developed a vaccine for HIV and other diseases, but now all of a sudden in less than a year they have developed an experimental “vaccine” which they claim is “95% effective”.

    I don’t buy that period. Vaccines normally take YEARS of research and YEARS of testing, but this current covid vaccine lacks that and is now being rushed and pushed. We are being used as the guinea pigs and lab rats. I hope our Lord returns soon to Rapture us before they start making this “vaccine” mandatory.

  712. William, continuing to pray for you and your family.

  713. John, JohnWI, Aristotle L Vargo and Holly,

    Thank you all for praying for me and my son. Please continue to pray for us that we both don’t revert back which puts a heavy strain on our family, especially my wife who gets deeply grieved and cries when she sees our anger problem in me and my son.

    Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

  714. Chas, I am praying for you and your wife.

  715. chas, I have prayed for your wife, and for you. I guess anything qualifies as a COVID symptom these days.

  716. William, I am praying for you brother!

  717. Well, here we go again. The wife needs to take another Covid test. She works a job in retail that requires her to “check in” every morning before going to work via a test by text-messaging. She has to answer a series of questions designed to spot C-19 “symptoms”, one of which is headaches. She’s had recurring migraines since she was a teenager. She had one since the last time she worked, though it was gone the next day. So she’s been “red-screened” and can’t work until she can produce documentation of a negative Covid test.

    That was last week, and she’s lost a week of work already. Couldn’t get tested before today. I’m asking for prayer that her test is negative, though we’re as much concerned about a false positive as a real positive.

    Thank you all for prayer.

  718. William, anger is a problem that I believe besides prayer, can also be tackled by applying certain Scriptures to it (i.e., not letting the sun go down on your anger, or being angry, but sinning not). For me I try to take that to Him in prayer before I speak. Or remembering what James said about being faster to listen to what someone is saying. Slower to speak. Meekly receiving the engrafted Word.


  719. Thanks Aristotle!

    Happy New Year to you and to everyone at expreacherman. We’re glad that you’re here!

  720. Aristotle L Vargo

    Happy new year everyone! Glad to have met you all! This website is so cool!

  721. Aristotle L Vargo

    prayed for you william

  722. William, I have prayed for you, your son, and your family.

  723. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

    Please pray for both me and my son who have an anger problem that has been difficult to overcome. My son also has a problem with being very disrespectful and lacking patience. It’s been tough on us as a family. Please pray for us. Thank you.

  724. Andrew, I find tremendous comfort in His Word, especially knowing that in advance that He wrote the Scriptures for us to give us comfort and hope.

    For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4

  725. Note to commenter Andrew:

    I am familiar with the condition that you described and I have prayed that you would be at peace.

    There are varying degrees to which people are troubled by circumstances in their lives, and our Lord is intimately aware of our individual circumstances and needs.

    It is great that you have assurance of eternal life and that you desire to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus. Focusing on His sufficiency and faithfulness to us is the best advice I would offer.

  726. Holly, thanks for your prayers and reminding us that God is a just God!

  727. John Tully, Johniinc, John WI, Chas, Aristotle

    I think that many of us can relate. I pray all the time for evil to be exposed to the light, and I do pray for a reprieve, for Him to continue to restrain the evil. All the time I remind Him that He is a Just God, and loves justice and hates injustice, and I ask Him if He is willing, to bring them to justice now. If not, I know it will happen later.

    I too have to keep a balance, and to be very sure I’m in the Word, or it can be very oppressive can’t it? I am selective in who I watch. Newsmax has some shows I like, and I tape so I can FF if I don’t want to hear about something in particular, just so I can get to the news I may want to hear. Greater is He that is in us though…

    Looking forward to the Rapture too, but praying for those who will left behind or even killed during that moment and later.

    Love you all in Christ, praying for the body. We’re fatigued, worn, but He is our strength, His grace is sufficient!

  728. Aristotle, it’s great to hear from you!

    Thanks for stopping by to affirm your love for us. It is always encouraging. Please know that I love all of you as well.

  729. Aristotle L Vargo

    Checking in to say I miss you guys and love you all!

  730. Chas, I have chosen the same balm as you have for my sanity’s sake. I have gone on a diet from the lies promulgated by the mainstream media. I am also cautious with alternative sources.

    The church, since its beginning, has been told to look for Christ’s appearing. The church was never instructed to look for His appearing contingent on the state of the world.

    I am also hopeful that we will get a reprieve and that people will come to their senses.

  731. Regarding the state of the union (and the election), I’ve seen more than one conservative blog recommend moderating one’s intake of news, even to the point of shutting off TV (mainstream) news entirely, just for the sake of one’s sanity. I’ve applied that solution to my own life, especially now that FOX news has gone full-on lefty. It has helped a lot.

    As for the state of the world and the Rapture, it has helped me to keep in mind that the timing of the Rapture is not tied to the state of the world, let alone the U.S. The Rapture will occur when the Church is full; when “the fullness of the Gentiles” has come in. The state of the world is irrelevant. It has been getting “worse and worse” since Paul’s day, and will continue to deteriorate, though perhaps with a reprieve here and there by the Lord’s mercy. Let’s hope we get another 4-year reprieve. It won’t postpone the Rapture by a single second.

  732. Thank you John!

  733. John Tully, I have prayed for you.

    I think many of us are struggling with what is going on right now, and would like to see a just outcome. It may be healthy to limit consumption of political news. Even conservative outlets sometimes have not so hidden agenda, such as selling gold and prepper books.

    We know that the Bible calls Satan the god of this world. He is very active in the affairs of this world, and he knows what his destiny will be. Unfortunately, many people, whose minds he has blinded to the gospel, do not.

    Yes, God knows what will happen. But, no, the evil things that people do in their lust for power are not of Him. The sovereignty (kingship) of we the people of the Unites States of America is not well-understood, nor accepted by most of our fellow citizens. That, combined with the bent of so many toward self-righteousness as a talisman against disease and death, make us ripe for abdicating our sovereignty to authoritarians, who will abuse any and all of our remaining civil liberties.

    As you said, we know that the independence of nations will be subsumed by a one-world government, whose authors don’t realize how fleeting their designs will be. Jesus will set things right.

  734. Last Saturday, I was under a real spiritual battle, to the point of being depressed about what is going on with this election. Thankfully, after listening to Pastor Cuccuzza’s sermon #11, in the series on Armagedon, I am doing better.
    I keep going back and forth between wanting the things that are going on behind the scenes to be exposed, and the people that are committing these crimes to be brought to justice, and then realizing that if nothing is done, then we are that much closer to the global reset, and the one world dictatorship, and the rapture of the church, before the tribulation begins.
    I am trying to limit my time on political stuff (conservative websites only), but it’s hard. I still want to be informed. I am praying for our current President.

    Please pray for me that I can leave it in the Lord’s hands. Thank you!

  735. Chas, so sorry. But they may not have ever known. Sometimes just using Scriptures that answer their errors (without mentioning the errors) helps in the long run. It helped my husband and my brother-in-law.

    Probably better not to mention the rapture unless they ask like you say. But since she’s brought it up, you could write her a ‘dear John’ type of letter (like the one I wrote to Jason years before we dated). You could tell her ‘if’ she survives the tragedies of that time, that she might want to ask why others are gone?

    Keep praying for her!

  736. Chas, It’s tragic that you mention how your close relative has written you off as a “lapsed Catholic” and won’t believe a word that you say regarding the true gospel since you don’t have the necessary “qualifications/credential” and are not an “ordained priest” according to her expectations.

    I’d just like to say that having the right “credentials” and being “ordained” does not automatically guarantee that a person understands and is teaching the real and clear gospel of the Bible. A young child of 5 could understand and explain the real gospel better than a person like your relative. No offense to her.

    There are many so called “theologians” who have their “Th.M” and “Th.D” degrees and their “degrees” in Greek and Hebrew, but are the worst heretics on the face of this earth. MacArthur has a “doctoral” degree, but currently teaches that one can take the mark of the beast and still be saved.

    Many of these so called “men of God” are just so full of it and are up on their proud high tower using their “credentials” and their semesters in Greek and Hebrew to bully, intimidate and to push their false doctrine more intelligently. Again, a little 5 year old child would do a much better job at explaining the gospel to an unsaved person.

    1 Corinthians 1:19-20 – 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

    20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

  737. Chas, that’s a good approach.

    Most of the prophecy sites I have seen are some version of “hurry up and believe a false gospel before its too late.”

  738. William and Holly…

    I’ve come around to a similar place regarding the unbelief of some of the people I know, especially a close family relative who remains a staunch Catholic. She views me as a “lapsed Catholic” at best, and won’t listen to anything I have to say about the Bible since I don’t have the necessary “qualifications”, not being an ordained priest. I’ve come to the conclusion that the only thing short of her own imminent death that would cajole her into even considering what I have to say is the Rapture itself, the very concept of which she ridicules.

    I’m a premillenial pre-tribulationist myself, but having seen the effects of “Rapture Mania” that has come from attempts to drum up head counts at prophecy “studies” by issuing de-facto predictions of the probable time of the Rapture (date bracketing), I tend to point a person’s attention not to the Rapture (unless they’re already interested in it) but to the unknown date of their own death. That tends to focus their attention on an event that they know will happen eventually, and side-steps any baggage they may have about the Rapture. Much less clutter to deal with.

    “Even if there is no Rapture, can you be certain you’ll survive the day?”

    The answer to that question can only be “No.”, especially in these times of the Chinese Plague. Which leads one to the next question…

  739. William, yeah, completely oblivious.

  740. John, Just like it says in Scripture, prior to the Rapture, many of the unsaved will be in a “business as usual” mentality.

    Matthew 24:36-42 – 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

  741. William, my husband was not only unconcerned (back when he was a friend), he would get angry when I would bring it up. He’d say, how am I supposed to just believe? And I told him that faith comes by hearing the Word, and he hadn’t so much as cracked it. He just tried to stare me down.

    Another time he snapped at me, “do you ever talk about anything else”? (I was just noting the sunset at the restaurant which was beautiful, an ever changing canvas. I just was quiet. So he snapped again, “Oh, so you’re not going to talk with me now”?

    I explained to him, it’s a big part of who I am. And so if he can’t stand that, he probably doesn’t like much of me. Long story short, prayer, reminding him he wasn’t promised tomorrow. I didn’t harangue him but if there was a lead in opportunity, I took it. I think some of the hardest ones sometimes fall easier. I will confess he shocked me when he told me he believed several years later. I had written him a long letter (he was going into the hospital for heart surgery — his second one). And I was pretty straightforward, but I knew he needed ‘proof’. I gave him all sorts of Biblical proof in prophecies and just the miraculous nature of the Bible coming together.

    Anyways, while there is breath, there is hope always 🙂

  742. William, it can be frustrating to try to witness to people when they often seem to show such little interest.

    I am thankful that your wife’s mother is a believer, and one more witness to the life-giving message of the gospel.

  743. Holly, I think for many people like my wife’s immediate family, it will take something like the commencement of the 7 year Tribulation to wake them up, otherwise they will never wake up to the truth. My wife’s mother who is in her 80’s finally recently believed and got saved, but the rest of her family is very stubborn and unconcerned and is not taking my wife’s warnings about the upcoming Rapture and Tribulation seriously. Everyone is basically nonchalant and asleep.

    After we’re all raptured, many of our non believing relatives, friends, and co-workers will no doubt be in an utter state of panic, fear, and confusion over our sudden disappearance where some will finally wake up to reality, but some will no doubt be deceived by the alternate explanation given by Satan in the masquerade of “UFO extraterrestrials” that our disappearance was due to the fact that we were taken up by the “bad aliens” and that they’re the “good aliens” that have come to help us in this time of panic. The Anti-Christ will appear and come to power where many will be brainwashed and see him as the “savior.” For those that come to know Christ during the Tribulation will have it very hard because many will be severely persecuted and martyred by the Anti-Christ and his forces.

  744. Chas, praying with you that she will see how short life really is, and she’s been given a second chance.

  745. Chas,

    Praise God that your wife’s aunt is receptive to the gospel. We’re still praying for her. My mother in law recently believed and got saved and she is in her 80’s. Please keep us posted. God bless!

  746. chas, thanks for the update. Her response is encouraging, and she seems receptive to the topic.

  747. Update on the wife’s aunt’s OH surgery last Monday (10/12):

    The surgery went well. (Wife’s not sure if it was double or triple bypass.) Aunt’s doing well and may go home Friday or Saturday. Wife spoke to her Wednesday on the phone, and told her “You know, If you believe Jesus died on the cross for your sins, you’re His child. Your performance doesn’t change that.” To which the aunt replied, “Yeah!” This emergency has apparently clarified her thinking on salvation. No, it’s not exactly a long, comprehensive presentation of the Gospel, but her response is encouraging. We’ll be keeping an eye on her.

    Many thanks again to all who have prayed.

  748. @Holly, and @Chas, i prayed for your familiy members.

  749. Chas, praying for her. Maybe your wife could just offer to read to her this booklet?

    Click to access how_to_be_sure_you_are_going_to_heaven_with_cover.pdf

  750. Chas, praying for your wife’s aunt that the surgery will go smoothly.

  751. chas, I have prayed that her surgery will go well.

  752. Many thanks to all who prayed for my wife’s aunt. She’s going into surgery this morning about 10:00 PDT. Will post more when I have info.

  753. Chas, we had a situation in which a man dying of lung cancer had heard so many different messages that the family members asked us not to talk about God with him. However, the man wanted us to pray with him, and we imbedded the gospel message into the prayer.

  754. Chas, Praying for your wife’s aunt. As a suggestion when the opportunity comes up for you and your wife to share the gospel with her either in person or over the phone, it’s a good idea to share with her the example of the thief on the cross in Luke 23:42-43, the woman in Luke 7:50, and the Philippian jailor in Acts 16:30-31. In those 3 instances, it is clear that eternal life is a FREE GIFT that is not dependent upon how “good” they were, but dependent upon their BELIEF on Christ and what He did which will save them right then and there in a nanosecond.

    Let your wife’s aunt know that if she is convinced about who Jesus is and BELIEVES that what He did on the cross for her with His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection is true, then she is saved. Please tell her eternal life is free and all she has to do is BELIEVE and RECEIVE which is a one time event that will make all the difference for all eternity – John 5:24.

    My mother in law who is in her 80’s recently BELIEVED and got saved. In the past she refused to believe for the longest time, but when we recently told her of the reality of hell, and the Imminent Great White Throne Judgment and the Lake of Fire, she finally woke up and BELIEVED.

    Please keep us posted. God bless!

  755. Chas, thanks for the additional info.

  756. My prayers also, chas

  757. More info:

    The aunt I mentioned is in the hospital for open-heart surgery, which apparently is what has her concerned for her eternal destination. At best she won’t be home for a week, and with this C-19 lock-down we can’t visit her. She’s been getting tons of phone calls already, so there’s no telling what’s coming at her about “spiritual” things. Well, the Lord certainly can visit her and give her understanding.

  758. Chas, I have prayed for you, your wife and your aunt!

  759. My wife just told me about one of her aunts who is having health problems (in her late 70s) and has been questioning her “Christianity”. The account I have is 3rd-hand, but from the sound of it, she’s having the “Am I a good enough Christian to go to Heaven?” struggle. Please pray that my wife and I will be able to present the Gospel to her clearly, and that she will hear with understanding.

    Many thanx.

  760. Holly, sorry to hear about your mother. I have prayed for her, for Adam, and for you.

  761. Thank you everyone. I was blessed. I got to spend time with him a couple of months earlier, and much time on the phone. I was able to be sure he understood the clear gospel, and he started watching Pastor Tom Cucuzza and called him ‘his pastor’. That gives me great comfort.

    William, that is so awful, I am so sorry for what you have been through, how terrible. Jesus knows our sorrows. I have lost a lot of family. My mom just also had a stroke and cancer has returned. I’ve reflected on it and realized although we all go through different ways of losing people, the Lord is there with us. I’ve lost a baby, a brother, father, a favorite aunt just dropped dead of an aneurysm in her brain right after she married (she was living with us). My daddy, and my late husband, who was my best friend and other best friends right after. Then the loss with Adam and the car accident, it’s traumatic. He’s still here, just not very much. I do not know how people do it without the Lord, if I thought on it, I would sink into that dark stormy ocean (and sometimes do).

    But thank the Lord, we do not grieve as others who have no hope.

    Again, so sorry for the trauma you have experienced, and I know He is there to comfort. And the trauma, hurt, and sorrow, others have experienced here. He stores your tears (Ps 56:8).

    God bless you all today.

  762. Holly, i’m sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. I lost both my parents, my closest uncle, and my brother. I lost my mother to cancer, my father to heart failure, my brother to a heart attack, and my uncle was murdered in a massacre along with 13 other people. Everyone was killed execution style during a robbery.

  763. Holly, i have prayed for your cousins wife, daughter and the the two sons.
    I am sorry for the loss of your cousin too.

  764. Holly, thanks for the update. I am so sorry for the loss of your cousin.

    I have prayed for his wife, children and other loved ones.

  765. Thank you all for praying for my cousin. He went back in after being home for a day or so. They ventilated him again, he had much wrong with him. Alfy went to be with the Lord in the middle of the night. He leaves behind his wife and a 13 year old daughter and two sons in their twenties. Pray for them all to be at peace and comforted at this time with only the comfort He can give.

    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1 Cor 2:9

  766. Holly, we’ll see what happens. Our daughter sends us cute puppy pictures almost every day.

  767. Johninnc, we decided against another one and got our very active Belgian Malinois ‘Grace’ who is the perfect example of how clumsy and rambunctious we can be as sinners.. She is a mess, stick with your first inclination 🙂

    Mark, so glad you’re with us, there are more out there of course that stand by salvation being free apart from strings and conditions. The difficult passages link above you might find helpful too, or just a Bible study in general.

    Thank you Aristotle, fryingpan, William, Marcus, Marcel and others. Praying you all have a lovely weekend with your family. My family is coming over today for ‘church’ with Pastor Cucuzza. They all will be doing something else tomorrow.

    My cousin you all prayed for was out for a day then went back in two days ago. They said he had pneumonia, but his hospitalist saw his wife in the hallways and came in and spent some time, and it’s just water on the lungs from before, she moved him over from oncology to the heart/lung area and is watching him herself. He still has to deal with the cancer and tumors all over, but a step at a time. God is so good.

  768. Thanks Aristotle! I hope you do as well.

  769. Aristotle L Vargo

    I hope everyone has a nice Labor day!

  770. Aristotle L Vargo

    Glad you are out of the lordship salvation nonsense Mark. I recently got out too. Such a horrible experience. I pray that you grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ!

  771. Aristotle L Vargo

    I prayed for your people Holly. I prayed for your marriage Marcus.

  772. marcel andree

    Hi Marcus,

    I prayed for you and Ann and that it will stay a wonderful relationship between you and her again.


  773. William, I agree that the world and its worldly religions (including Calvinism/LS) institutionalize their narratives and then try to marginalize dissent.

  774. John, Exactly and well said. It’s eisegesis of the Scriptures where the false philosophical presuppositions of men are imposed imposed into the Scriptures. Calvinism has been forcefully imposed into all the seminaries, textbooks, dictionaries, and churches for centuries like a cancer. Calvinism holds sway in this country and we are talking about centuries of brainwash and indoctrination. Many are taught since a very young age not to question the Calvinist doctrine of predestination, but to take it for granted.

    Many Calvinist “pastors” and “theologians” will even go so far as using their “Master’s” and “Doctoral” degrees and their degrees in Greek and Hebrew to defend and to impose their false doctrine of “predestination” into the Bible upon those in their congregation. They will also no doubt use their “credentials” to bully and intimidate young babes in Christ and unsuspecting Christians who are inexperienced and who don’t know Scripture well.

    Questioning would be considered downright blasphemy and an insult to the church forefathers of old who handed down this teaching and who could “never make a mistake”. It’s utterly foolish how many people venerate the Calvinist teaching on predestination just because its been around for centuries. It literally becomes brainwash, cherished dogma, and changeless data. It’s no different from Charles Darwin’s theory of “evolution” or I should say “evil – lution” that has also been forcefully imposed into all the public school textbooks, teacher’s minds, college and university textbooks for centuries. Again, many in the public school system are taught not to question Darwin’s theory. The one who questions will always get ridiculed and bullied and treated as an “ignorant” fool. The whole scientific field is based on this false philosophical presupposition of Darwin, a mere man. Has it ever occurred to the general public that Darwin is dead wrong in his assertion? People embrace this lie because it conveniently excuses them from all moral and ethical accountability to the Creator. The real truth about the Genesis account of creation gets written off and dismissed as a “once upon a time” fictional fairy tale.

    The same is true in regards to predestination and election. The real Biblical definition gets written off and dismissed as “heresy” and the lie of Calvinistic “predestination” gets embraced like a magnet. Has it ever occurred to Christians that the Augustinian/Calvinistic understanding of “predestination” is wrong? Again, the ones who think and do their homework in studying God’s Word and who question the Calvinistic understanding will always get ridiculed, bullied, and written off as a “heretic.”

    Colossians 2:8 KJV – “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

  775. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience with us. I got dragged into LS and Calvinism almost immediately after hearing and believing the gospel in 1992 and was miserable and confused because of it for a very long time.

    I pray you overcome the struggle (if you have not already) a lot quicker than I did. I found this blog in Feb. 2013 and it took a LOT of work undoing those old metal habits that caused me to have lingering doubts and fears and uncertainty when there should have been NONE.

  776. William, the LS/Calvinist mindset finds LS/Calvinism in those passages and virtually everywhere else. If it’s not in scripture, they will make up things to augment their views (like the thief on the cross would have done lots of good works had he lived another 30 years, etc.).

  777. Mark, Thanks for sharing. I was once deceived by LS for a period of time when I was a young babe in Christ decades ago. Praise God that you have come out of this false doctrine! Lordship Salvation is a demonic doctrine masquerading as “Christian”. As you may already know, LS basically spawned from Augustine who is the father of Roman Catholicism and later refined by Augustine’s ardent admirer, John Calvin.

    The grave error that many Calvinists/LS people make is going to an English translation like the NIV with words that best fit their faulty understanding and looking at the phrases in Luke 8:8 and Luke 8:15 that say, “yielded a CROP, A HUNDRED TIMES MORE than was sown”, and “PERSEVERING produce a CROP” to mean that the presence of the great amount of WORK and PROFIT gained must mean that this is the ONLY true Christian with “true saving faith.” Again, they will no doubt write off and dismiss Luke 8:6-7/Luke 8:13-14 as “unsaved false professors” with “non saving faith” because of the absence of WORKS. Lordship Salvation teachers will no doubt use Luke 8:8/Luke 8:15 as one of their “proof texts” in verifying that if Christians don’t produce an “abundant crop”, then they are “unsaved.” These 2 passages will further support their belief in “limited atonement” where Christ supposedly died only for the “chosen elect few” where according to their logic that only these “FEW” are the “truly saved” because of the presence of abundant works.

    Luke 8:8 – NIV 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a CROP, A HUNDRED TIMES MORE than was sown.”

    Luke 8:15 – NIV But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by PERSEVERING produce a CROP.

    They will no doubt go and pervert James 2:14-26 for further support. It’s interesting to also note that people in the Lordship Salvation camp will look at the word “PERSEVERING” in the latter part of Luke 8:15 NIV to mean “perseverance of the saints” which will further support their false doctrine.

  778. Mark, we are happy and thankful that you have been delivered from the lie of lordship “salvation.”

    I join you in praying that those who know Jesus as Savior will grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus and thankfulness for the truth of the gospel.

  779. My name is Mark and I have recently been brought to an awareness of Lordship Salvation and how it has affected my life in the most dire and negative ways possible. My life was a living hell of sorts at times. I pray that we may all grow in grace and in helping one another by the Spirit. Praise the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ for the pure gospel that saves.

  780. Praying for you and Ann, that you can build up your marriage again in Him.

  781. Marcus, That’s great news! I pray that your wife will come back and be re-united with you. Praise God!

    Mark 10:9 – What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

  782. Marcus, that is such fantastic news! I have prayed for you and your wife again.

  783. Good evening.

    I have a praise report.

    After a 3.5 year separation and eventual divorce, my wife Ann is considering a reconciliation with me.

    I am beyond elated and thankful.

    We serve a risen Savior and a Mighty God!

    Please continue to pray for her and me.

  784. Holly, thanks for the update!

  785. Thank you both, he’s off the ventilator as of yesterday, but on a bipap, his lungs are very wet. My other cousin wasn’t looking good but may soon be going to rehab. So thank you all.

  786. Hi Holly,

    I prayed for both of your cousins and their
    families. Sorry for the late response.


  787. Holly, I have prayed for your cousin who suffered a stroke as well.

  788. I just am talking to my mom, and she told me my other cousin, young 60s, had a bad headache and is in the hospital with a stroke. Both of them are believers and friends on FB. I just saw my male cousin last month, and Michelle is up by my sister and mom. We were all close growing up and renewed our acquaintance through Christ.

  789. Holly, I have prayed for your cousin Alfy and for his wife and children.

  790. I’d like to ask you all for prayer for my cousin Alfy. He was in the hospital in Hawaii but they were just diagnosing him with a headache. They took him to Colorado (where they recently have bought a home) and that hospital thought he had meningitis, but his blood was so thick they could not take blood. They did a bone marrow biopsy and transferred him to a third hospital that is able to do plasmapheresis and dialysis. They intubated him, put in a feeding tube etc. His wife has been staying with him, but suddenly they said they ‘forgot’ to test for Covid and for her safety she can’t be there (hopefully until his test comes back). They have not tested her.

    In the meantime he’s been diagnosed with advanced multiple myeloma. He’s only about 45ish, and always very healthy. He is sedated right now but his wife has approved light chemo to start.

    So appreciate your prayers for him, his wife, and his kids. Thank you ❤

  791. Aristotle, Pentecostal churches teach a separate baptism of the Holy Spirit and say you have to speak in tongues. Of course if it were for today, none of them are using it Biblically in any order or by the guidelines set out by His Word.

    They teach you can lose or sin away your salvation and that you have to ‘turn from sin’ or ‘repent from sin’ to receive eternal life. They preach experience rather than the Word or even Christ and Him crucified.

  792. Aristotle, that sounds like a lot of background activity and noise.

  793. Aristotle L Vargo

    Thanks Johninnc. It was a really weird day. Funny part of the story was we came in during the family choirs music rehearsal. They were all practicing singing and the son of the preacher kept doing mini drum solos. The wife of the preacher kept telling “johnny stop!” He would stop and then 5 minutes later break into another mini solo. Haha
