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.

Cheryl: Prayer for brother Mike. He just finished up with chemo after surgery for colon cancer, went in for a checkup colonoscopy and they found a tumor and have confirmed it is malignant. We will find out more on what the future holds in the next couple of days. Prayer for my sister Lisa who is also currently undergoing chemo for breast cancer after surgery. Lastly prayer for my 86 year old Mom Helen, as she supports her kids. One praise - I just had my 2 year check up after uterine cancer and everything is clear!

Cindy: Please pray for my 84 year old dad, Conrad. He will be undergoing surgery to restore blood flow back to his legs. This Thursday October 19th will be the 1st of 2 surgery’s. His 2nd surgery will be scheduled in a month or two.

Jan: Please pray for my 88 year old mom, Gertrude, who is still recovering from many health issues and hospitalizations since January. She fell and broke her wrist last week and is now home recovering. Please pray that her wrist heals and she is able to get stronger with physical therapy and remain in her own home. She loves the Lord will all her heart and is trusting Him for strength each day. Thank you for your prayers!

Deb: A dear young man Mark, whom we've know all our lives, has suffered with a form of IBM. He now has an intestinal stricture and is undergoing surgery this morning the 25th. Likely he will need to have a permanent colostomy though there is a small chance they can re-connect the colon in the future. Please pray for the best outcome for the surgery, and for strength for Mark and his parents. Appreciate your prayers for these dear friends.
