Prayer Requests 12-11-13

Anyone have a praise or request to share?

And it’s Wednesday, so don’t forget The Gambia.

Psalm 115

¹Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.

  1. Prayers requested for wisdom. I had a short episode yesterday (while I was driving 4th Arrow to her dentist appointment) where I had mild pain (more like pressure) in the center of my chest that seemed to go all the way through and into my back, directly behind the area that was uncomfortable up front. It lasted for no more than maybe ten, fifteen seconds with no other symptoms with it. A short while after that ended, I started to feel some stiffening in my neck, which also lasted only a few seconds and went away. I had no other similar problems the rest of the day and didn’t think about it, but, after mentioning it to my husband this morning, we’re both wondering if it’s anything I should have checked out, being that heart problems in women don’t always manifest with the “classic” symptoms.


  2. Prayer for husband as he had to go to several hours of training today, to learn how to find the right help for our special neediest children. He is in a lot of discomfort in his knee and both hands. He took an extra driver and a twelve year old along.


  3. Please pray for my friend, Jenn, again. She is at a doctor’s appointment (a specialist of some sort) right now. She is in more pain (she said she was screaming in pain the other morning), the area around the tube to her bladder (which doesn’t work anymore) gets infected periodically, & now she has some bad bleeding from somewhere which may be due to a fistula. Her fear is that she may be told she needs surgery to fix it, but after 14 surgeries in her stomach, she was previously told another surgery could kill her. (She barely made it through the last one.)

    And please pray for salvation for her husband & grown son & daughter.

    Thank you.


  4. Update from Jenn: “Need to be admitted to St. Francis hospital, possible emergency stomach surgery. I give up. Please pray as hard as you can.”

    To see Jenn saying she gives up is heartbreaking. She has kept up a positive, faith-filled attitude through all of this. Although she does occasionally get depressed by it, she bounces back to a good attitude fairly quickly.

    BTW, she has been losing weight again. She was recently thrilled to have gained a pound or two, & said she was trying to get up to 95 lbs.


  5. Thanks for praying. It’s probably a good time to get a check-up again, since I haven’t been in at all this year. Not that I think yearly check-ups are necessary, but certain changes I think warrant visits more often.

    Prayers for Idaho Mike and for Jenn. “…trying to get up to 95 lbs.” Wow.
