NEW TO PRAYER?
For people who have never prayed before, it can be intimidating. But God invites us to come as we are and share whatever is on our heart. You don’t need to be an expert or use any special language. Just speak to God as you would a friend, knowing that He loves you and wants the very best for you.

Mike and Marcella Meinema
We are asking for prayer for Marcella, who is battling cancer, as she has had more testing to seek if the 3 spots found in her lungs are an inflammation of some kind or if cancer has spread. Our doctor is hopeful that it is an inflammation, but the biopsy will tell us for sure. Please join us in prayer for good news and for continued healing from the tumours in her body. She is on an immunotherapy trial at Princess Margaret Hospital, where her tumours have shrunk by around 50% so far and they are still shrinking; we praise God for this! Thanks for your love and for your support of our family Southridge! It means the world to us both.

My name is Mike and I am the location pastor at our Welland site. I am asking for prayer for our current capital campaign going on right now for our new building in Welland. We are so excited as a church for this opportunity and we have been engaging a lot of people to talk about fundraising for this building, but far more than that we are seeing this as a chance to help each other to live fully for God. Our staff sees this as a chance for all of us to grow in Christ, and that is our priority in this process. Please pray that people will be generous and joyful in giving. Please pray that God’s will can be done by allowing this building to be used to reach more and more people in Welland who desperately need God. Please pray for the staff who are extra busy with this campaign, as they are giving of time and energy to reach as many people as possible; we do this with passion but we need perseverance. Thanks for your support and prayers!

I am trying to get focused and having quite a bit of trouble doing it; I would appreciate prayer for direction and also ‘blinders’ to keep distractions at bay – I feel that I am wasting time; thanks so much

I need a healing of my stomach/ throat , my throat feels tight and it’s hard to swallow , it’s hard to fall asleep , to be awake and eating is upsetting my stomach. My doctor thinks it has to do with my acid reflex but is not offering much help and the throat specialist just hurt my throat even more . I am suffering so much with this you just want to die to stop the suffering.

The man I love said he never wants to talk to me again because I reached out to his mom to tell her I’m praying for her and her husband with facing her husband’s cancer. My heart is breaking and I don’t really understand why that upset him. Please pray he will understand I didn’t mean any harm and will still talk to me. Thank you.

I have two very important prayer requests for this stressful week.
1), on the 17th, at 3 PM I have a very important, pre-court hearing as it pertains to our family law matter. An issue 10 years in the making. Pray for a wise judgment/ruling and new willingness to collaborate fairly.
2), on the 18th, myself and dozens of other healthcare professionals – mostly doctors – are meeting at Queens Park at 9:45 a.m. for a press conference to:
a) support the debate in the legislature later that day over a private members bill requesting robust protection for conscientious objectors to physician-assisted suicide.
And b) ‘call out’ the CPSO (College of physicians and surgeons) who have had in place for nearly 2 years a conscriptive policy which requires all physicians to either perform OR refer for physician-assistant suicide [presently known as MaiD; Medical Assistance in Dying]. As persons of conscience, opposed to involvement in this service, we find it unethical to be involved in either referral for or delivery of MAiD.
So, following our press conference in support of the private members bill debate, we will proceed as a group of physicians (and anyone who wants to come with us as a show of support) over to the CPSO office and hand-deliver a large volume of written letters of objection by concerned healthcare workers and other Canadians. The hope is that they will consider reversing their current policy with regards to the delivery of MAiD in Ontario and rescinding the requirement for all physicians to participate in referral.
This type of public action is way outside the comfort zone for myself and many others like me. I greatly solicit your prayers support.
Especially pray for those who are going to be spokespersons at the press conference and no doubt drawn by the media to get off point and perhaps major on some minors. Pray that God moves in the hearts of the listeners and the CPSO, and the legislature. We want for the positive message of affirming life, and protecting against wrongful death to come forward. Not the negative message of what we “won’t do”. Thank you.
