Prayer Requests 8-31-16

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget to pray for The Gambia, and for Ajisuun as well. 

Anyone else?

Psalm 128

¹Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.

For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.

The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel.

  1. Tomorrow is Mr X’s next court date. We’ve been told that when/if he appears, he will be arrested for violating the protective order. I don’t think he has any idea about that, but thinks he got away with bothering Nightingale with that text.

    As I mentioned a while back, he is planning on representing himself. Hoping that this arrest will show him he needs to take a plea deal, if offered (or plead guilty if no deal is offered), rather than go through with a trial.

    Also praying for the Holy Spirit’s conviction to come upon him. He has no idea what he has done to his son.

  2. Karen, your willingness to pray for him is incredibly gracious and convicts me that I should pray for the person in our family who is abusive and causing great pain. It is very hard to do.

  3. You are both better than I am. I find it very hard to pray for those who have hurt me. I understand you are both in a different situation from any I have ever been and I admire you both.

  4. Continued prayers for Carol on the loss of her good friend — and also for his family. The funeral is today at one of the oldest Spanish-speaking Catholic churches in our area. He had a difficult life with the mental illness challenges and some family alienation through the years. He was very good to Carol in the past few years, they both had such handicaps (both mental and physical) in life, which probably helped them to bond. They filled in for each other’s unique weaknesses.

    And prayers, too, for Cheryl. It’s so hard to lose such a beloved pet. 😦

  5. It is difficult to pray for those who have hurt us. I think of Corrie Ten Boom forgiving the person responsible for the misery and ultimate death of her precious sister. Reading about that makes you realize it is impossible for us without the help of the Holy Spirit.

    I have found it takes prayer over and over. Remembering Jesus’ forgiveness on the cross and other’s like Corrie’s helps me. Remembering who is really in charge helps, too, and that God will make sure justice is done. I don’t think this will ever be easy in this life.

    I ask for prayers for my uncle who buried his wife just a couple of months ago and now has lost a son to drugs. He also moved to live closer to his daughter and knows no one there besides the daughter, her husband and grandchildren. I cannot imagine how much grief this must add to his life.

  6. I must admit that some of my concern for Mr X is the effect he has, & will have, on his precious son. I would like my grandson to have a godly father. As I prayed from that starting point, real concern for him came in, from the Holy Spirit.

    There is a prayer that I pray every night for my family, for their safety & for God to move in their lives, & such. Mr X was included in that, as I felt that he was sort of a (distant/estranged) part of the family by virtue of being Little Guy’s dad. But since this incident, I feel differently about him. I still include him in that prayer, almost begrudgingly, but the feeling in my heart is different than it had been. In my heart, he is no longer any part of this family. That makes me sad.

  7. 1st Arrow got sick at work today. Bad stomach pains, and threw up 4 times during his 8-hour shift. (Well, not quite 8 hours, as he left a little early to go to Urgent Care.)

    Blockage in his colon, the provider said.

    Thank you for prayers.

  8. Cheryl, he was given some laxatives, and I think he might have said an anti-nausea med. He got home just a little before my piano student arrived, so I didn’t have much time to talk to him. He’s resting now, so I don’t know any more of what he was told.

    I’m hoping it’s an easy fix, but I’ll find out more tomorrow.
