Steve was a long-time member of The Weatherfords before launching his solo career a few years ago. Would you please pray that God will heal Steve and encourage him during this very difficult battle? Pray for Steve’s wife Standalee and their son Skylar as well.

Update on Tracy Stuffle

  • Posted on February 2, 2013 at 9:54 am

Posted on Facebook this morning by Libbi (Tracy’s wife):

A new obstacle this morning! I have to leave Tracy’s ICU room from 6 to 8 am & pm. I came back in Tracy’s room at 8 am. Nurses were bathing him. The nurse tells me that Tracy is having some skin break down, mainly on his right side. She then shows me and I am shocked. Mainly under his arm and on his hip on right side. Then another place under his arm on left side. We do NOT need this in the Name of Jesus, God’s Son be gone!!!!

Haven’t seen the doctor yet to see what the plan of attack is. Blood pressure started elevating about 5am, which seems to be a pattern. Giving him Meds for that. Temp is still rocking between 99.8 to 101.8.

Can I just say I am holding on to faith, but my brain and mind are worn out!!! Praying today will bring new mercies and new miracles, in the name of Jesus Christ, God’s son!!

Please continue to uphold Tracy and Libbi in your prayers. I know what it’s like to constantly go from one thing to the next and yet be ready for this to be over. It’s often more exhausting for the friends and family than it is for the one in the hospital. Thank you, prayer warriors. God is faithful and will complete the work He’s begun.

Tracy Stuffle in Need of Prayer

  • Posted on January 23, 2013 at 9:55 am

I was away all day yesterday so am just now getting around to posting this but Tracy Stuffle of the Perrys suffered a stroke Monday evening and is in desperate need of prayer. Because of the bleeding in his brain, they inserted a drainage cath which seems to have helped but he is still in desperate need of prayer. Please join me in praying for Tracy’s complete recovery, peace for his wife Libbi, and strength for the group during this time. If you would like to leave a note for Tracy and Libbi to let them know that you are praying for them, there is a Facebook page where you can leave comments and which will also keep you updated as you pray. Thank you, prayer warriors. I’m so grateful to serve a God who still heals.

Prayer Requested for Embry Inman

  • Posted on August 26, 2012 at 12:02 am

Dear friends and prayer warriors, I am writing once again to ask you to join me in interceding for a couple who is going through a very trying time. Scott Inman (of the Triumphant Quartet) and his wife Kasey welcomed their first child into the world Friday afternoon. Their joy has turned to concern, however, as their baby has stopped breathing several times. I don’t profess to know God’s plan at this time but I do know that He loves this baby more than we can imagine. He also loves Scott and Kasey, and I’m asking Him to have mercy and grant this baby life while filling her parents with peace. Scott’s request is below. Please take a minute to touch Heaven on their behalf.

We are asking prayer for our new little girl, Embry. Early this morning she stopped breathing & has had 3 or 4 of the same episodes throughout the day. She is in ICU and they will be running test the next 3-4 days to try to find the problem. To be honest, Kasey and I are scared to death and agree that this is the hardest thing that we’ve been through. We believe in Gods plan & we also believe in Gods healing. We just want our baby girl. Yesterday was the highest high, & today has been the lowest low. Thank you for your prayers. We love you!

Prayer Requested for Jack Laws

  • Posted on September 28, 2011 at 3:18 pm

In case there’s anyone who hasn’t heard, Jack Laws (of the Smoky Mountain Reunion) was hospitalized on Monday due to 2 leaking heart valves. He is needing the valves replaced, and the doctors are wanting to do some bypasses. I’ve been burdened for Brother Jack and would like to ask prayer warriors everywhere to please join me in interceding on his behalf. There is no such thing as “routine” surgery. It is God who guides surgeons and gives doctors wisdom and we need to ask Him to do both of those things. I don’t know when these things will take place but I do know that they don’t typically perform surgery unless a patient is strong enough to undergo it so pray for that as well.

This is not meant to alarm anyone. Troy Burns posted yesterday that Jack was doing better. I just know he has a long road ahead to recovery and I’m sure he’d appreciate our prayers on his behalf. Too often, we save prayer as a last ditch effort when God should be the first person we look to in times like these.

Father God, I ask that you will touch Brother Jack right now. Fill his room with Your presence. Give him and those around him peace to know that You are in control. Life and death are in Your hands, and I ask that you will be merciful and leave Jack with us a while longer. Give him the strength he needs to go through the surgeries that You prescribe. Give the doctors wisdom concerning what to do and when to do it. I pray for Archie Watkins, Troy Burns, Marlin Shubert and Eddie Dietz as they minister this week. Fill their hearts with Your peace that they may effectively minister to the people who come to their concerts. Thank You, Father, for the work You are doing. May You receive the glory in everything. I love You and trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Prayer Requested for Brenda Ruppe

  • Posted on April 26, 2011 at 6:18 pm

The group Sisters has announced that Brenda Ruppe will be undergoing surgery tomorrow, April 27, to remove her thyroid. She’s been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Since it was caught early on, they expect a great outcome but I’d like to ask the Body of Christ to remember Brenda and her family in prayer this next little while. After the surgery, there will be a time of recovery, and we need to specifically pray that the surgery will remove every bit of cancer. We serve a faithful God who still heals all the time. Praise Yahweh!


UPDATE: Brenda is out of surgery and the doctor is 99% sure it’s not cancerous. If everything continues to go well, she should go home tomorrow. Praise God for yet another answered prayer!

Update on Phil Collingsworth

  • Posted on December 14, 2010 at 11:24 pm

Thank you to all who are praying for Mr. Collingsworth. The Collingsworth Family reported on their Facebook page that Phil is in ICU due to being very nauseated. Please continue to pray for him and his family who have got to be exhausted.

I say it a lot but I believe the greatest privilege we have as believers is to be able to approach the Throne of God on behalf of our Brothers and Sisters. I’ve been the recipient of those prayers and I’m so grateful when I in turn can be the one to wrap my arms around others through prayer. God is so faithful!

Prayer Requested for Phil Collingsworth

  • Posted on December 13, 2010 at 11:22 pm

Southern Gospel Blog reported that Phil Collingsworth, Sr. is scheduled to have brain surgery tomorrow (December 14). Therefore, I’d like to ask you to join me in praying for Phil and the Collingsworth Family and please continue to pray throughout the day as God brings them to mind.

Father, thank You for the Collingsworth Family and the blessing they are to so many. Thank You for giving them a window where they can be off the road so that Phil can have this surgery. Keep Your hand on the surgeons. Guide them so that the surgery will be successful and the recovery quick. Give the whole Collingsworth family peace and help them to feel Your presence continually during this time. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Prayer Requested for Tony Greene

  • Posted on September 25, 2010 at 11:57 pm

I just thought I’d take a minute to ask all the prayer warriors who read my blog to please intercede for Tony Greene of The Greenes. I don’t have a lot of information except that he is in ICU with a collapsed lung. His wife, Taranda, has canceled their dates for this weekend and I have to say I’m feeling an urgency to cover them in prayer. Pray for strength and healing for Tony. Pray for peace for Taranda. Pray that God will bring in extra finances during this time that they’re taking off work. Pray that the Spirit of God will fill the hospital rooms so that no one will be able to deny His presence. It’s easy to focus on our own problems but, right now, let’s cover Tony, Taranda, their extended family and friends.

I was listening to “Miracle in Me” this evening. I have seen God do so many things, including raising people up from close to death. His hand is not short. He holds the power of life and death in His hands but I’m praying He will mercifully give Tony some more time with us. Thank you for joining me in approaching the Throne on their behalf.
