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.

Alea: A friend, Dina has asked for prayer. She is having surgery for a mass, unsure if it is cancerous, but the not knowing makes her anxious. Pray that she will rest in God as she has asked for us to pray.

Jane: Knee replacement surgery on Monday, June 25 at AGH.

Justin: That I may use my talents to serve God however He sees fit. That I may find my place in this church and my community.

Nate: Update: Manuel is recovering, please keep praying for him. 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.
