Prayer Requests

At Riverside we practice the scriptural admonition to “pray without ceasing”. We are committed to aligning ourselves with the will of God and that happens in regular times of prayer. We have seen God do the miraculous by taking seriously the command to “carry one another’s burdens”, so we have dedicated this page to lifting each other up in prayer. We invite you to review and pray for requests and post your own prayer requests. You have the option to share openly, anonymously or exclusively to the staff. All entries are available to and filtered by RCC staff. Contact the church office at 412-828-2488 or for more information.

Jan: Please pray for my 88 yr. old mom, Gertrude. She broke her leg 6 mos ago. As she was recovering from that injury, she was admitted to the hospital in May for pneumonia/congestive heart failure. She was readmitted to the hospital again last week for Atril fib/congestive heart failure. She has been through alot and her faith is low. Please hold her up in prayer for a healing of her body. She loves the Lord and feels that she still has unfinished work to do for him. Please pray that the Lord will continue to give me wisdom and strength as I am her main caregiver. Thank you!

Tom and Cindy: We would like to have prayers for our 36 year old daughter Amber. She was diagnosed with MS during her last year of college and has battled this very unpredictable disease ever since. Unfortunately her body reacted badly to all of the know MS drugs leaving her to figure this terrible disease out "on her own". Neurologist laughed at her when she decided to fight the MS by changing her diet (GF, dairy free, soy free etc). Amber is a Godly women and knows that He is with her always. Currently, she is going through a flair up that is affecting her legs. Tightness, numbness, tingling and highly sensitive to the touch. Her knees feel as if they are tightly wrapped with ace bandages. Please help us pray for comfort and healing for our beautiful daughter Amber.

Alvin: Doctor's discovered a fracture in his leg. New pin was put in hip. Pray for complete healing, that he continues to eat, and that he gets the mental health help that he needs. 

Pat: Please pray for my stepson, Jamie, who was in a bad motorcycle accident. He is out of a coma but is still not out of the woods yet.

Marni: Please continue to pray for my nephew Jake who is still recovering from a bad car accident.

Andrea: Please pray for husband, Michael, who will have surgery on his tongue for cancer. Asking that the surgery goes well, that no other cancer is detected, and that God will help with the pain and healing. Asking also for peace through the whole process.
