Please Pray For Peter-John Courson

I recently learned a friend underwent surgery because he had 18-20 abscesses on his brain–one was the size of an egg. His name is Peter-John Courson. He was my neighbor for eleven years. He married my son and daughter-in-law. He prayed for me when I was in the hospital. He has a wife and four young daughters. He’s a great brother and a man of God. His surgery was Monday and as of Wednesday he’s still not yet alert and oriented.

He’s battled severe Crohn’s disease for years but brain surgery was completely unexpected by the family. The next few days are critical.

It would mean alot to me if you would pray for him.

If you want to learn more, you can check out his dad’s Bible study. The part about Peter starts around seven minutes in.

(If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the update on Peter John posted 11/28/2015. God is Good.)

  1. Peter Jon’s trials with his health are unspeakable , he is completely depending upon our Lord’s will… He has steadfastly trusted in our Lord… His faith has been put to the test over and over again… He writes short messages in his website… . He writes that our Lord has revealed Heavens to him.. He has been receiving comfort and healing from our Lord…I pray to our Lord Jesus, our savior and Redeemer, who is in Heavens interceding for him (and us all) to give Peter Jon each day more strength , more power and to say each day: Lord, I am in your Hands, you are in control and let it be your Will and not mine…

  3. Any current news about Peter John? I heard the same broadcast and have been praying and wondering. I listen to Pastor Jon’s present messages and have been hoping for an update, but have heard nothing.

    Thank you,

  4. Thank you for standing I the gap FOR PETER . I ONL YHEARD TONIGHT AT THE SERVICE AT CALVERY SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO CA. FROM JOHN RANDALL HOW CRITICALLY ILL PETER IS. HE ANNONCED IT TO THE CHURCH AND WE ALL PRAYED. I KNOW PETER HE WAS THE TEACHING PASTOR AT THE TIME I WAS ATTENDING CAPO BEACH CALVERY I WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY.I HAVE STARTED TO PRAY ALREADY.

  5. Do you have an update? We have been praying. Jon Courson grew up in the same church as my family…Calvary Baptist Church, Los Gatos, CA. We have followed his ministry for years and will continue praying for Peter John.

    • Thank you for praying Cherie! I don’t have much in the way of an update. His dad Jon spoke about him briefly at the beginning of the last Wednesday night Bible study but it’s not included in the recorded version on his website. I only learned what I did because I listened to the live radio broadcast last night on KAPL. Peter-John had a second surgery last Sunday. He has periods of lucidity (including a good conversation he had with his daughter), but he doesn’t seem to be oriented most of the time. He has blood clots in his legs, a lung problem, his Crohn’s is flaring up, and they found out he has a hole in his heart. The family remains hopeful. Please continue to pray.

  6. ABBA Father, I pray in the authority of Your Son.
    I lift up Peter-John to you right now. Your servant is suffering in the hospital with this very serious condition, which you know all about. He has suffered much through the years with the Crone’s disease, but through his suffering he has honored You in his prayers, his teachings, and through loving and caring for his family and loving his neighbor as himself.
    May your loving Hand, your Right Arm, your only-begotten Son, reach down from on high and touch our brother, would that you heal his brain wholly. We believe in miracles today. You alone are The miracle worker for your children, You alone have said that in these last days we would do exploits, and those who are praying are hoping and waiting for the incomprehensible to occur–for our brother to be completely healed so that he can complete his mission on this earth. Nevertheless, I pray Your perfect will be done for You are in charge and in complete control of when we arrive and when we leave.
    I pray for his family–for strength and for courage during this time. See to their every need. And for his congregation, that they will surround Peter-John with their prayers and their lovingkindness, and be a present help in the family’s time of need. That they would be strong and hopeful and be blessings to one another during this time by recalling what Peter, the Apostle, has said:
    “So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus the Messiah is revealed.”
    Thank you in advance ABBA for how You answer this prayer. Amen.

  7. Thank you for posting this, Kurt. If I understand your post correctly, Peter-John’s dad is one of my dearest friend’s Pastor and I have his O.T. & N.T. commentaries. Will definitely pray, as of right now. Blessings on his family, and blessings you for standing in the gap and asking for prayer support. You’ve got it. In Christ, Barb Aira, Costa Rica.
