Prayer Requests 10-31-16

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 31

¹In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.

Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.

Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord.

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.

12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God.

15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake.

17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

21 Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.

23 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.

  1. Another prayer request for Hubby:

    His knees, but particularly his left knee, are not good, due to arthritis & something else. You can hear a crunching-type of sound when he moves it. He needs to keep a knee brace on, or it is more apt to twist & be very painful. (But the doctor said that wearing the knee brace could lead to a blood clot, so he is taking a bit of aspirin each day. He cannot not wear the brace.)

    It is so sad to see the arthritis slowing him down. He wants to play actively with Little Guy, but his body, especially his knees, protest. He protects himself as much as possible at home so he’ll be as okay as possible for work. Getting in his truck is hard on the knee. He has an appointment this afternoon with our primary doctor, who was sent info for a prescription from the ortho doc.

    Please pray with me that God will heal & restore his health & his body (through His divine touch, or through medical help), especially so he can be able to play with Little Guy without worrying. Thank you.

  2. My 86 year-old Uncle Frank is in for a hip replacement today– he wants to play golf again. He’s in good health and spirits except he has hemophilia. Doctors at one hospital wouldn’t touch him so now he’s at USC, who know him well.

    My cousin is understandably worried and asking for prayer. We love him.

  3. From my cousin:

    Update : spoke with Dr. Sx went very well… dr was pleased and said it went like any other normal hip Sx. Hemo team will continue to give the factor 8 blood (clotting factor). Very little bleeding …. Next 36 hrs are crucial but the Hemo team is on it.. We appreciate all the prayers and kind words.
    Thank you so much😘

  4. I have not posted here about Karen today because it is just so overwhelming. I have not known what to post. Finally I know. In praying with her, I prayed about God turning it to good for His purposes. Well, on top of everything else, Karen has a newly discovered lung type disease that maybe only ten people in the world have so far been diagnosed with (a biopsy a while back concluded she has it). I think she may be thinking that the disease might be causing all she has gone through. I am praying that things may be discovered through the doctors’ work with her so that many people might be helped with recovery from that disease. Karen has so much knowledge of the medical field that she is just the one who could help make discoveries. I have not heard anything this afternoon to know what they are doing to help her.

  5. Praying for all.

    I am sick tonight, but despite that (or maybe because of it), got to feeling very hungry. Afraid to eat anything, but decided I should, anyway, so I did. Pray that helps, or at least that it doesn’t make things worse. Thanks.

  6. Kim: thanks for asking. My mom seems to be doing okay. Evidently, the doctors told her not to drink any ethanol–and she claims to be following orders….. I don’t know how long it will last–but it is wonderful right now….Home Health came yesterday. She liked the young man assigned to her. Physical therapy comes today. She claims to be doing the exercises they gave her in rehab.
    There is a very small part of me that is hoping she will finally get sober after forty years of being intoxicated each night….but I’m trying not to hope too much. It would be a miracle if it lasts.
