Prayer Requests

Hey whoever is out there.

I learned today that one of my classmates (I'm a junior in high school) is dead. Drew died on Monday, August 6. No one seems to know how he died yet. But I know that a death, regardless of the how, is hard. So hard. He seems to have a ton of family. And I just ask you, whoever you are, that you pray for his family. I feel like a Bible verse is suiting right now, so:

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
-Psalm 147:3

Please add any pressing prayers you have so we can pray together.
And another:

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. –James 5:13-16
