Please agree in prayer for moms & dads, asking the Lord to guide them to learn the realities of abortion. The "problem" is not solved, but traded for something even worse. Seeing other children at birthday parties, on school buses, in playgrounds, restaurants, etc. after they take the life of their child will be painful daily reminders. Lord, lead them to available help. Give them the determination to carry their baby to term. I pray that no attack of the enemy would succeed, in Jesus' name!

Update: Our granddaughter is still in a temporary facility that does very little to help her. There are frequent fights in the unit, and paperwork for transfer to another facility is just being processed after 3 weeks. Please pray she can be moved soon to a safe, capable facility. Please pray also for the family. The stress is affecting the whole family, and her mom had to resign from her job to handle the constant paperwork and visits. The court trial scheduled for Thursday has been delayed until Feb. 22 or later. Please pray the repeat offender will not recant his assault confession and that our granddaughter will not need to attend court and testify. Thank you so much for your prayers.

URGENT Update: Please continue prayers for our sweet 15 year old granddaughter's mental health. She desperately needs treatment in a residential facility. She was released from a temporary facility Friday into her father's care, but had to be involuntarily committed Saturday night. She hates everyone and is threatening suicide. The current temporary facility will release her after 7 days and doesn't help find a new place. After several days of constant calling, we found a bed available. When she attempted suicide in June, she was incorrectly registered in a Medicaid plan that doesn't pay for long term care. Please pray that Medicaid will approve today the request sent several weeks ago for long term care. Please pray for the family as we're somewhat numb from stress and developing health problems from it. Thank you so much.

Praise report on my husband Ed, he had his three month follow up for a Pet scan, CT scan and scope and there is no sign of cancer nor is there any sign of a tumor ever being on the base of his tongue. Doctor said everything looks completely normal, Only God! The doctor said he will not have to have another Pet scan or CT scan again, however he will need to have the scope down his nostril to take a look at the base of his tongue every three month.

God is so amazing, I don’t know what we would have done without him as he carried my husband through when he didn’t think he could go on.

Hallelujah and Praise Jesus.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers throughout our journey.

10/11 Update on my husband Ed, he had his bloodwork done today and it was good. He also had his Pet scan and there was nothing suspicious, doctor was pleased! We praise God for his healing and we go back in three months for more bloodwork and another Pet scan. Thanks for your many prayers.

10/2 Update on my husband Ed,

We are almost three months out from his cancer treatments and he has gotten most of his strength back, his taste is coming back slowly. We go back October 10th for a Pet scan to confirm that his cancer is gone and more blood work so please continue to keep him in your prayers for an awesome report. There is victory in Jesus and his mercies are new every morning. Thank you for your continued prayers through his journey and we are anxious to put this chapter behind us.

PRAISE!!!!! 8/8/23 Update on my husband Ed:

This is certainly a praise report, the cancerous tumor is gone. Thank you Jesus and for the many prayers that have been uttered. To God be the Glory for the great things he had done. We go back to Duke in October for the Pet scan so please continue to pray to confirm the findings of today. Hallelujah!

--------------------------------------

8/7 Update on my husband Ed,

we are a month out from his treatments and he is getting a little stronger every day. Two weeks ago we went to Duke for bloodwork and to see the chemo doctor. His bloodwork levels were improving and the doctor said he was pleased. We go back tomorrow Tuesday the 8th and the radiation doctor will put a scope down his nostril and take a look at the base of his tongue. Three weeks into his radiation he did this same procedure and the cancer was 75-80% gone. He had radiation for seven weeks so please pray the it’s 100% gone. We are so trusting God for an awesome outcome. Thank you for being with us through this journey and your prayers. Hope to be back in church soon!

----------------------------------------------

7/8/23 Update on my husband Ed, this past Wednesday July 5th was his last radiation treatment and over a week ago his last chemotherapy. Praise God we are done, just some follow up appointments with bloodwork in two weeks and then in four weeks they will put a scope down his nostril and take a look. Three months from now, he will have another pet scan so please continue to pray for good results. Also pray for a speedy recovery that he will get stronger and get all his taste buds back. Thank you! God is so good!

------------------------------------------

4/5/23 UPDATE: Ed, just returned home from Duke Health for consultation and with all that’s going on, they had already reviewed his records and did the biopsy while we were there. The preliminary findings are that he has squamous cell carcinoma and now we are waiting for an appointment for the Pet scan. So continue to pray for him! Thanks.

40 Day Pray for EBC - God already knows, Why pray?

God’s word says to pray continually. As we enter this time of searching for a new pastor, we know that God already knows who the man is to lead us in the next chapter of EBC. Surely God can take care of our need without our asking, but when we ask, we are acknowledging that He alone is God.

So, as we humble ourselves and lay aside our willfulness and worry, we admit our desire to seek and obey Him.

“Ask me and I will tell you and tell you some remarkable secrets about what is going to happen here” (Jeremiah 33:3)

Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

Robin Taylor

From Amy Lancaster--

Mark is declining, he has a fever, his oxygen is decreasing to mid 80's and he is very weak. They initially diagnosed him with pneumonia and adenovirus but yesterday's chest x ray showed a small pleural effusion.

they are repeating the x-ray this morning to see if it's getting larger but a plural effusion can be pretty serious. Sometimes requiring tapping into the lungs to drain the fluid.

He's only breathing through his mouth, so they have attached the oxygen to a cup to help him to breathe. The mask was too difficult for his autism.

In his whole life, he's never been sick. He's very very sick and needs prayer like never before.

Please pray for Mark.

40 Day Pray for EBC -Unity among the family

*Pray for covenant among our pastoral staff, administrative staff, congregation, and our search team as we pray for our next pastor.

*Jesus said, “If two of you agree on earth about anything that you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in Heaven" (Matthew 18:19).

*The words Jesus used can be translated to harmonize or make a symphony. A symphony is composed of many

instruments that seem to be a single voice when played together.

*Pray Romans 15:6,

"..so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Day 7 – On their journey through the desert, the Israelites clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on their feet.

The Bible records in Deuteronomy

29:6 that the Lord, “…did this so that you might know that I am the Lord your God.” This same God who watched over His people in transition is the same God who watches over us today.

Thank God for His provision of Dr. Scott Pace as we go through this time of

transition at EBC.

Ask God to begin to stir in the heart of our next pastor.

I’m grateful we are part of the family at Englewood and that God has blessed us in so many ways. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve at Englewood and walk alongside other Christians. And for the privilege to bring my prayer requests before the church family.

My family and I need your prayers as we continue to go through a very difficult time with my sister that is mentally unhealthy and unstable. I’ve dealt with her unhealthiness for years and it’s worn me down to the point that I had to set boundaries and not get around her. She lies, deceives, and lives a very unhealthy life. I’m praying for salvation for her, and that God protects us from her. Through this I’m asking God to continue to strengthen us, protect us, and allow us to keep our eyes on him!

Chris Pridgen Praise for Ed

10/11 Update on my husband Ed, he had his bloodwork done today and it was good. He also had his Pet scan and there was nothing suspicious, doctor was pleased! We praise God for his healing and we go back in three months for more bloodwork and another Pet scan. Thanks for your many prayers.

-------------------------------------------

10/2 Update on my husband Ed,

We are almost three months out from his cancer treatments and he has gotten most of his strength back, his taste is coming back slowly. We go back October 10th for a Pet scan to confirm that his cancer is gone and more blood work so please continue to keep him in your prayers for an awesome report. There is victory in Jesus and his mercies are new every morning. Thank you for your continued prayers through his journey and we are anxious to put this chapter behind us.

--------------------------------------------

PRAISE!!!!! 8/8/23 Update on my husband Ed:

This is certainly a praise report, the cancerous tumor is gone. Thank you Jesus and for the many prayers that have been uttered. To God be the Glory for the great things he had done. We go back to Duke in October for the Pet scan so please continue to pray to confirm the findings of today. Hallelujah!

--------------------------------------

8/7 Update on my husband Ed,

we are a month out from his treatments and he is getting a little stronger every day. Two weeks ago we went to Duke for bloodwork and to see the chemo doctor. His bloodwork levels were improving and the doctor said he was pleased. We go back tomorrow Tuesday the 8th and the radiation doctor will put a scope down his nostril and take a look at the base of his tongue. Three weeks into his radiation he did this same procedure and the cancer was 75-80% gone. He had radiation for seven weeks so please pray the it’s 100% gone. We are so trusting God for an awesome outcome. Thank you for being with us through this journey and your prayers. Hope to be back in church soon!

----------------------------------------------

7/8/23 Update on my husband Ed, this past Wednesday July 5th was his last radiation treatment and over a week ago his last chemotherapy. Praise God we are done, just some follow up appointments with bloodwork in two weeks and then in four weeks they will put a scope down his nostril and take a look. Three months from now, he will have another pet scan so please continue to pray for good results. Also pray for a speedy recovery that he will get stronger and get all his taste buds back. Thank you! God is so good!

------------------------------------------

4/5/23 UPDATE: Ed, just returned home from Duke Health for consultation and with all that’s going on, they had already reviewed his records and did the biopsy while we were there. The preliminary findings are that he has squamous cell carcinoma and now we are waiting for an appointment for the Pet scan. So continue to pray for him! Thanks.

40 Day Pray for EBC - Day 1

40 Days of Prayer for EBC

Day 1

What do we do? Is a question that many will ask during this season in the life of Englewood. What we do is pray and we continue sharing the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. Realistically, we know that prayer is

the most important thing we can do during this pastoral search. It is difficult - just ask Peter, James, and John (Matthew 26:36 – 46). It has been said by those who consult with churches during these times of transition that a lack of prayer is one of the biggest mistakes made during the process.

Begin today by praying;

* asking God for His continued blessings on EBC,

* for His guidance as our search team enters this time of seeking God’s direction,

* for stamina to continue praying for as long as it takes,

* for us to be sensitive to God’s leading during this time of transition,

*to remember to pray for our leadership at EBC in the days to come.
