Prayers and Concerns

Too many times we hear about classmates who are having health issues or other concerns and need our prayers.  To request prayers for a classmate, family member, faculty and staff personnel, or yourself, please email us via the Contact Us link. We'll post your request at the top of this page.  Your request will remain posted for 60 days, unless you let us know prayers are no longer needed.

December 27, 2020  Prayers for Deb Anderson Murrish.  She was diagnosed with early onset dementia several years ago and it has caused a change in her personality for the worse.  Her husband, Rod, could no longer care for her so she was living in an assisted living facility.  After a brief hospital stay, she will go to a nursing home.  Please keep her in your prayers and her husband and two sons as they make the hard decisions for her care.

August 5, 2019  Dick Jensen has been diagnosed with cancer on his tongue, jaw and neck lymph nodes.  He is going through some tests to see if it has spread elsewhere.  If it has not, he will undergo chemo radiation.  He requests no visitors as he can not talk and has lost a lot of weight.  Please include him in your prayers and feel free to send him a card to 2512 A Ave #7, Kearney 68847.


I found out yesterday Pam Chism Miller’s husband, Jerry, passed away and services were last week in Omaha.  Please keep her family in your prayers.  Here is his obituary:
