Prayers for Bill "Moose" Rieger
Wed., Apr. 15. 2015 11:18am EDT

Please pray for Bill "Moose" Rieger, our former drummer and current occasional guest guitarist. In fact, he plays guitar on one of the songs on our next single. That song is already recorded, but Moose is now dealing with some serious pain issues that are jeopardizing his ability to play guitar again.

In addition to his job at a local bank, Moose is the worship leader and guitarist for Faith Alliance Church in Saltsburg PA, so guitar is not just something he does occasionally for us. Here's the story and a prayer request in his own words:

I have a pinched nerve that sends pain and numbness down my neck, through my shoulder, down my arm and through my left hand and top two fingers. Because of my insurance, I have to do six weeks of physical therapy before I can get an MRI. The MRI will hopefully tell us what the problem is in my spine. Possibly compressed, herniated, or arthritic discs.

The pain started three months ago as discomfort. It slowly continued to get worse until I couldn't bear it any longer. I'm surviving on pain killers that I share control of with my wife (to make sure I don't get addicted to them). Playing guitar has become challenging without the pain meds and sometimes impossible because the fingers on my left hand can go numb.

Now I am afraid, because I have come to love my musical journey as an improving guitar player, but I have faith in the one true God who loves me. I have been anointed with oil and prayed for by my loving church. I have sent you prayer requests before and watched God change people's lives. I expect to see another miracle that will testify to the glory of God.

The x-rays show problems, the doctors are concerned, and something that I love to do that I believe if a gift from God is threatening to be taken away from me again, but I see an opportunity for the God that I love to be glorified. I expect things to get worse. The worse it gets, the more glory we will be able to give back to our God.

If this becomes something that will only get worse or cannot be cured, then like Rack, Shack and Benny, He is still my God. I believe in the anointing from my church, I believe in the miracles I have seen when I have asked you to pray for things in the past and I believe that through this God will be glorified.
