Prayer Request

by Frank Turk

Over the weekend, Darrin Patrick of the Journey in St. Louis, MO, was bitten by a brown recluse spider -- which many of you know is nasty business. Darrin went to the hospital and was treated, but now has a staph infection.

You probably don't know Darrin. I had coffee with him once. He has a wife and 3 kids whom he loves, and a church full of people who used to be lost but now love and serve Jesus. Please pray for the recovery of this brother, father, husband and pastor.

Praying.

Spider bites of all kinds are nasty. I had one on my stomach at the beltline last summer that took about 4 months to heal, and that wasn't from a brown recluse.

Praying now.

Oh my! I've seen pictures of what a Brown Recluse spider bite can do. It's not pretty.

Definitely praying for this brother ('specially since Brown Recluse spiders aren't covered by Mark 16:18...)

My sister-in-law was bit twice. Nasty indeed.

I'll pray for the Lord's healing and mercy for our brother.

Being from the Midwest I have seen these pernicious creatures in my house. They have a potentially wicked bite, but it is the secondary infection that can be really nasty. "The Journey" is a controversal church in St. Louis. Discernment would be advised. I will certainly pray for healing mercies.

I was in St. Louis and attended the Journey while there. This church is definitely filled with people who love the Lord.

I will pray for Darrin.
