Prayer Request at the Prayer Hub

Dear God,

We pray for Jeffrey as he is battling more than one terminal disease. Your word says that by your stripes we are healed and we pray that healing power over Jeffrey. It's in the precious name of our savior Jesus Christ we pray.


Please go to the Prayer Hubs and join with us as we seek God's healing on the life of Jeffrey and those whose lives he touches.

Do you have a hard time staying awake in church?

I have been reading the latest Faith and You column by Terry Pluto of the Plain Dealer. The title is "Even if you fall asleep, it's better to attend services than not." I recommend you follow that link and read the column. It will either speak to you about yourself or others.

I have a problem at times staying awake in church. For years I wondered why this might be. Then after falling asleep behind the wheel 10 years ago and wrecking my car, I found that I was suffering from sleep apnea. I did get some relief from that diagnosis. I am afraid of what some might say when I go to church and nod off. I have done this during revival meetings when we get home at 10pm and I have to awaken at 3am. I would call it doing my neck exercises. By no way am I proud of that, But in Matthew 11:28, Jesus said "Come to me those who are weary and I will give you rest."

So is it better to be in church, barely awake with people praying for you, or at home, in front of the tube?
