Prayer Requests

We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers unceasingly...              (1 Thessalonians 1:2)

* Xander, Ms. Liford's Nephew
Thank you for all of the prayers for Xander! He was recently featured in a news segment celebrating Miracle Children. You can view his amazing story here!  #xanderstrong 

*Alba Family, Shrine Family

The Alba family lost their husband and father, Jason, just before Christmas. The Albas have been long time, active members of the Shrine community and have three children. Naomi (11th) and Nate (8th) attend our schools. Many people from our community have asked how they can help. With the family’s permission, we have set up a tuition fund to help offset future tuition expenses at Shrine. The link can be found here:  
Donations can also be made to LifeLab Kids Foundation in Ferndale where their youngest child, Noah (grade 2) goes to school. We will continue to hold the Alba family close in prayer and encourage you to do the same. 

* Amy Firek, Shrine Family 
Amy, one of our Shrine moms, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  She has 4th and 6th graders at the Grade School, and a Junior at the High School. We pray for continued strength, health, and healing as they go through this as a family. 

* Ms. Liford, Shrine Family
Our incredible Academy Art Teacher has been battling cancer. She will be beginning a new round of treatment while continuing to teach our children face-to-face. Praying for continued strength and healing for her. 

If we can support you or your loved ones through the power of prayer, please email You don't need to share any names or personal information (we'll just share whatever you tell us you're comfortable with).
