Prayer Request

Step 1: A Prayer to Enter into A Relationship with God

Almighty God, I admit I am a sinner.  I cannot forgive my own sin or work my way to heaven. You gave Your only Son, Jesus Christ, to bring salvation to all the world.  Today, I accept the finished work of Christ’s life- his teachings, example, death, burial and resurrection – for my salvation.  

Cleanse me of all my sin.  Take away all charges against me in the court of heaven.  Cleanse my mind and heart of all guilt.  

Today I receive the gift of a new life, a new heart, and wholeness in every way.  I receive Your Holy Spirit to live in me as my Teacher, Friend and Guide.  He will teach me Your ways so I can live according to Your Word.  

Thank You, Father, for restoring me to Your perfect plan for my life.  Today I have come home.  I am Your child and will dwell in Your house forever and ever.  Amen.

Please lift Don and Diane up to our Father. They need our prayers. From Don O’Neal’s Facebook page: FYI- Trying to only do this once-
I wanted to let everyone know what the outcome of the past two days for Diane and I with our trips to Vanderbilt.
We went hoping that they had something that we could try to help with the cancer tumors.
Unfortunately, we have been told to live life at the fullest, they have nothing for us or anything in the works. For us, her MS is working against any and all options for treatment.
If we do a cancer treatment her MS quality of life and actual life could be jeopardized. We have already had 2 ICU’s in the past 24 months and they do not think she can handle any more.
At this point right now, as I actually write this, tears are filling my eyes, as a young teenager, my father was told the same thing as he was sent home with nothing, he fought until the end, his way. The only way he knew.
We are going to do the same thing. We are going to continue to eat healthy without Gluten and Sugar in our lives and take out vitamins as we use holistic approach’s. We have only nutrition now to help in this fight.
Diane has lived through a lot things to be here today. She is strong enough to not go down without a fight. We are fortunate at this moment that the cancer has not impacted her organs. We don’t have days, months or years marked for how this battle will turn out. We have each day. Period. One day at a time, one meal at a time to fight.
We appreciate everyone’s wishes and prayers. I promise you that we are going to need them more and more in the days to come.

From Dom Lagana’s Facebook page:

“I am finally able to use my phone and wanted to come on here to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my family through this difficult time. I’m just starting to see some of the messages and videos that were created, and I feel so grateful. It’s a very tight knit racing community and this shows first hand how we really are a big family. I can’t thank everybody enough. I was able to watch some of the past races online and seeing all the Lagana Strong t-shirts being worn is such a huge motivation for me.
A very special thank you to my beautiful fiancé Sara for being with me in the hospital every day and taking care of me and to my brother Bob for being there for me every step of the way. I know this wasn’t easy for them. I am so appreciative and couldn’t do this without them.
Thank you to the Torrence family & my Capco TR brothers. You guys are my family and always support me. Can’t wait to be back in the shop with all of you.
Thanks to everyone who has been there for Sara & Bob & our family to help them through this. Our friends & family are everything.
Also, a big thank you to the doctors & nurses from Eskenazi hospital and now Kindred hospital for taking such good care of me these last few months.
It’s been a crazy year that I’m sure we are all ready to put behind us.
I also want to say that I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Eric Lane this past weekend. My heart goes out to his family and they are in my sincere thoughts and prayers. Hop was very loved by all his peers and will be dearly missed.
I have a long road ahead of me to my recovery but I’m working hard and I’m extremely motivated. The positivity from everyone is what’s helping me progress and I’m determined to get back to the racetrack. I’ll see you all again soon.”

10.22.20

Prayers of comfort for all stunned and grieving. God Speed “Hop.” 

Statement from Cruz Pedregon Racing following the death of Co-Crew Chief Eric Lane:
Eric Lane, co-crew chief for Cruz Pedregon Racing and known to many as “Hop,” was struck and killed by a car while walking back from a restaurant last night near Mineral Wells, Texas. The team was taking time off between the Dallas and Houston NHRA races to enjoy fishing and being together away from the track.
“Eric was energetic and shared the same enthusiasm for the sport as I do. He was known for his skill in working with NHRA teams but even more so for his upbeat personality and bringing smiles to everyone on the team and those who stopped by the pit,” says Cruz, driver of the Snap-on Dodge®. “He joined the team officially for the 2020 season but worked with us for three races at the end of last season. He worked closely with his best friend and our co-crew chief Nick Casertano and previously with many of the top names in the business. The sport has lost one of its very best.
“We were just coming into our own, Eric, Nick, and I, in turning the car around, and his contributions will be a big part of our success moving forward. I’m so proud of Nick, who is set on doing the right thing for his best friend, for Eric’s family, and for the team. We’re still taking it all in, but as a tight-knit group we will be getting together and do what we know Eric would want us to do and that’s focus on the race ahead in Houston.”
From the team’s primary sponsor, “Snap-on has been a part of the motorsports community for decades, and, as a sponsor, we have close working relationships with the teams and individuals who wear the company’s name. Our hearts go out to Eric’s family and we mourn with Cruz, the team, and the entire NHRA family on the loss of one of drag racing’s stand-out professionals,” says Samuel Bottum, Snap-on chief marketing officer.
Lane was 47 and lived in Avon, Indiana. He leaves behind his wife Kelly and their daughter Melaynee and a legacy of dedication to the sport of drag racing.

From Mike Carpenter’s Facebook page:
Charles Carpenter Update, 10/15/2020:
The last few days have been busy with tests and getting my dad stabilized so he can rest. He’s finally doing that today. His progress matches what the doctors are expecting based on the size and severity of his stroke. He’s now entering the peak time for brain swelling over the next few days, but it’s within the normal range and he doesn’t have any additional bleeding. All of this means he will be very tired and inactive over the next few days, so we’ll see less movement and talking than we’ve seen since Monday. He is aware of what has happened and greatly appreciates the incredible outpouring of support from our family, friends and the racing community. Thank you all for the calls, messages and prayers. I can’t put into words what it means to our family. 🙏🏻 #CarpenterStrong

10.13.20

Prayers for Charles Carpenter. From Mike Carpenter’s Facebook page: My dad suffered a severe stroke yesterday caused by blockages in his carotid artery. The doctors believe a dissection, or injury to the neck and the artery, was causing clotting over a period of time. The next few days will be critical in determining which direction this goes and his overall outcome. He has a long road ahead of him but he’s already exceeding the expectations of the doctors. They also can’t believe he was driving a Pro Mod last weekend, but everyone who knows my dad shouldn’t be surprised by that! He never gives up. This photo was taken Saturday at the PDRA race. He had a persistent headache throughout the weekend, but he drove the car very well and had no indication of anything this severe. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers! We’ve suffered too much to be going through this again and we need this warrior back home soon! #CarpenterStrong

Prayers for Noah.❤️

From Elizabeth Hutson(his mom)

Thanks to my dear friend, Amy Bozard, for sharing this with me today. This truly expresses my feeling right now. I am not going to be angry over this. God is BIGGER, He is HEALER, and He is AWESOME IN POWER! He is our God and He will be with us every step of the way!
Yesterday I talked to the neurosurgeon about Noah’s pathology report. It was not the news we were expecting. 😢 The report concluded that Noah has a stage 4 midline glioma (brain tumor). It is fast growing and very aggressive. It is very rare in children but according to the doctor the tumors are more responsive to treatments/chemo in children. Noah is scared about what all this may mean for him. He knows that God has him in His hands and we are going to be OK. But, I still don’t want him to go through something so big so young. The way chemo makes a person feel is difficult to put into words. Please pray that his youth will give him the strength to deal with this better than anticipated and he will bounce back quickly. We know everyone will be praying and offering support in all kinds of ways and we are so grateful for that.
God’s will be done! We are trusting that He will strengthen us and show us grace.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ NKJV

Continue to pray for our nation and world on the final hours of this National and Global Day of Repentance and Prayer. Pray for repentance for the sins of our leaders – political, church, government, education, and home. Pray for the hearts of all people to be turned to God in truth and righteousness.

From Chaplain Jerry Blazier at the IHRA Division 4 Team Finals: Please add Tommie to the prayer list. He is in the hospital with a number of issues. At one point they call the family in. He is in real trouble. Thanks.

Ernest prayers needed for Don Lagana.
From Gary Pritchett’s Facebook page:

Although difficult to talk about, we wanted to get an update out for all of Dom’s family, friends and supporters around the world.
It has been just over three weeks since his accident. Dom has battled through lots of issues, some more serious than others. He suffered a head injury and bad burns to his body. He was in a non induced coma for two weeks and was showing signs of waking up but then caught a bad case of pneumonia. Some of his progress has now been stalled in order to focus on his lungs. The amazing staff at Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital have been strong with their response and treatment for Dom. If there is a focal point to all of your thoughts and prayers right now, it would be for Dom’s lungs to heal and get strong enough to resume the rest of his surgeries. He is fighting for his life every day and still needs your prayers.

We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy. Thank you all for the amazing support for Dom and his journey. The outpouring of love from around the world has helped us all through this difficult time.

As Dom rests and prepares for this new chapter, we have adopted the phrase “God Is Love” to help us keep our faith forefront.

Thank you all and God Bless.
Bobby, Sara, Marie & Laura.

Dear Parents,

We understand that the first day of school may not have worked out as some of you hoped it would. We don’t attempt to know what it’s like to be in your shoes this school year. However, we do believe there’s a reason James 1:2 popped up on our Bible app: “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.” Easier said than done, right? So, how do we get to the “joy” part when you experience tech glitches, you have more coffee than patience and you’re still trying to figure out the math from last school year, so you have no idea how you’re going to help your child with math this year? Well, that’s where James 1:3 comes in: “because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

Perseverance is “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition” states Merriam-Webster.

God sees your effort. He recognizes that you are making the best decisions that you can for your children and family. He wants you to remember that while He has given you many talents, He will also do what you can’t do. Use your mustard seed of faith. We pray that you and your children will become stronger and grow together no matter what happens this school year.

For those of you whose families had a great first day of school, we pray that you can feel our happiness for you! We’ll also pray for continued smooth sailing for you and your little ones.

When you learn how to overcome an obstacle or experience something that God did to make it easier, can you please send some info. to us so that we can post it here? When people hear what God has done for them, it strengthens their hope. You can email us at renee@godspeedministry.com or joy@godspeedministry.com. You can also send it via Facebook Messenger. Record a video if you’d like.

Let’s make this school year about victory in Jesus. Because He works all things together for our good, we know he’ll pour blessings upon blessings out to you and your family.

8.10.20

From Chaplain Carol Rix:  Our mall Church is in the final stages of approval. After we have hundred of thousands dollars, we are being faced with a lot of opposition. God’s Will be done!!! Lifespring Community Church, Spring Grove, IL  Carol & Tom Rix. Thank you!

From Chaplain Tommy D’Aprile: Please pray for my nephew’s new baby who is 1lb 10 oz. … 13 inch long. “Please get your prayer warriors praying that Nox can get a shunt put in if necessary.  He is doing well on all levels except the brain bleed.   So my prayer is that the Lord lays His hand on the bleed and stops it so they just need the shunt to drain the hydrocephalus that is developing.   He is a great God so I am believing for a miracle and he is completely healed. Amen!”

Pray for Dom Lagana, Bobby Lagana’s brother, who was in a car accident on Sunday. Dom has major injuries which need to be overcome.  Please pray for his life and recovery.

Pray for Don Ellison.  The wound developed an abscess which burst open and is draining.  Don is home.  Calli will pack the wound 2 times daily.  The wound went from 15 cm to .9 cm before the abscess.  Now it is 7 cm.  While this is not what they wanted to hear, it is 8 cm smaller than the original.  God has demonstrated Himself as a healer for Don and will continue to do so.  Your prayers are working.  Thank you and please continue to pray.

Pray for students as they adapt to a new learning platform.  Pray for teachers as they juggle classrooms and zoom classes.  Pray for parents and grandparents as they juggle jobs, home and now school.  So many people are struggling with adapting to the ongoing changes.  Their expectations are dashed.  Their connection to friends is missing and the lack human interaction variety is causing great upset.  Some students have no access to online classes, either in grade school or college.  The gap for them is widening.  Pray for solutions and ideas.

Pray for Brad Shippert who is battling lymphoma.

Pray for the USA, our government and people. May God have mercy and raise up a standard against evil.  May His people rise up with love and righteousness, standing with God Almighty in agreement that His ways are superior to our ways.  God have mercy!

From Chaplain Joe Sannutti:  This is an update from my sister on my mom. She is “out of it”, not making any sense when she tries to talk. She seemed to be doing better yesterday, then today, she’s taken this turn. Her white blood cells doubled; they have her on three meds. Doctor came in twice today to see her because she is one of the patients they’re worried about. Please be praying that rest and the antibiotics will work and she’ll come around.
