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.

Nate: A good friend and brother in Christ's wife contacted me from Colorado to let me know that he had to be rushed into surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain. At first they thought he just had a bad migraine. His wife also informed me that he was not responding at one point then the doctors got him to respond. He is a faithful follower of Christ, a husband and father of 4, and dear friend of mine. Please pray for him, his name is Manuel and his wife's name is Stacy. Thank you so much.

Jan: Please pray for my mom, Gertrude, She is 88 years old and had a major heart attack on 4/1/18. Dr. removed a blood clot from an artery and placed a stent. She has been quite ill for the last 15 months and I covet your prayers for her healing and wisdom for all the doctors who are treating her. 

Carmen: Please join me in prayer for my son who has a hearing on June 4. In the last six months, we have had a niece and a sister pass away and now this. Also, pray for his salvation. 

Dave: A coworker needs urgent prayer (3/6/18). Sean was cutting glass and sliced all of his fingers off of one hand. They life-flighted him and he went into surgery. He lost a lot of blood. They expect to be able to save some fingers. Coworkers are quite shaken. The company brought in counselors immediately for support. Please lift Sean and his family especially up in prayer and also the doctors and Ventana Manufacturing workers.
