Prayer Requests 8-26-16

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 124

¹If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

  1. Prayers requested for physical and mental stamina as I make preparations for restarting school here. Mental stamina because I have lots to think through about where to go from here in applying a school philosophy we’ve very slowly been transitioning toward for a long time. Physical stamina because we’ve been doing a lot of physical rearranging, setting up school in a different part of the house. Boxes of unsorted stuff need to be unpacked and organized.

    I’m a half hour into the project and already I’ve got a backache. Will try to alternate the physical work with the mental work and getting things down on paper to organize my mind.

    Wisdom for what to do when, how much to delegate, and to keep it all in balance, including with all the usual household matters that can’t be put on hold — meals, for one thing.

    Hoping to get done in two days, but desiring patience if God has a different timetable for me.

  2. It’s the last day of camp. We’ve had 99 campers make first-time decisions for Christ (that we know about) and more than twice that made re-commitments (most of our campers are non-churched or Catholic). Please pray that these campers will find a great church/youth group to attend when they go back home (we try to get them connected before they leave camp) and that they will be encouraged during the year as the “camp high” goes away. So many of them come from very difficult home situations.

  3. Please pray that Heidi’s right hip (at least, I think it is her hip – could be another part of that leg) will heal up on its own with some rest. It has done that in the past.

    I admit that part of this prayer is for us, that we don’t have to take her to the vet, to avoid a large vet bill which we can’t really afford right now.
