Prayer Requests 11-2-16

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 33

¹Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.

Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.

He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.

For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.

10 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.

14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;

19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

  1. Today I am going back to October 31 in Daily Affirmations for ACOA
    Today I trust my perceptions.
    On this day I affirm what I see, what I feel and what I sense are real–I can trust myself, I validate my experiences, my senses, and my intuition.
    As a child, I was influenced by the “no talk” ruler in my family, and I cam to distrust my perceptions. The constant denial that there was a problem in my home and led me to believe that I was the one who was crazy. This pattern, more than any other, have caused me hurt and disappointment.
    How many times have I disregarded my own warning signals? I have entered into relationships that I knew were bad for me. I have rushed into situations that I knew were dangerous. How many times must I continue to walk into the same brick wall and bruise myself?
    For years I’ve tried to move the wall. Today I will walk in a different direction. I am learning to avoid hurt by seeing people and situations for what they are–not for what I wish them to be. I am extremely capable of perceiving what is real. I will judge what lies ahead of me and make decisions in my own best interest.

    Ann, how you feel is how YOU feel. How your siblings feel are their feelings. You are not crazy. You may get hurt again by holding out hope that something will change in your mother, but your willingness to hold out that hope is admirable. Take that from someone who gave up hope. {{{{{Ann}}}}}

    You may not want to hear this answer. Storing bottles of urine is not uncommon in the drug abuse culture. Stored urine, if it’s “clean” and from a non-using individual, can be sold for use during mandatory drug screening for individuals on parole or probation. If she has been off drugs for a time, she may be selling her urine for this purpose. It’s also possible that the bottles contained urine from another individual, hoping she could somehow continue to use drugs and pass her mandatory drug screens with her bottled “clean” urine. This is rarely successful and she may have tested “dirty” again, prompting her return to the correctional facility. Hospitals and law enforcement use many strategies to prevent the use of stored, borrowed or portable urine in drug testing procedures. I won’t be discussing those strategies.

    Most interesting is the use of bottled urine by methamphetamine users. I’ve been told (I’m not a urine expert!) that some meth users actually drink their own urine or the urine of other meth users at times under the assumption that the urine contains active chemical components or metabolites of their meth use. This is apparently another attempt to obtain a “high”.

    I have also had experience with individuals who are shy about using group restrooms in group homes, prisons, jails, hospitals, rehab programs, etc. They often hide feces and urine in their living area rather than use a group restroom. This practice is especially common if there is a fear of sexual/physical assault in the group toilet facilities.

    Lastly, there are a few cultures that recommend drinking one’s morning urine for health purposes. It seems morning urine contains a high concentration of melatonin, a substance often used for sleep and jet lag. This is unlikely unless the young lady was from Tibet.

    Well, you had to ask…


  4. I am going with guess number three. But he has the entire outdoors to go and does. He never takes it with him and nobody comes to the house to get it so he is not selling it, but I will ask in an attempt to get him to see it is not appropriate.


  5. I am utterly surprised at how naïve I can be about some things.
    I thought I had heard it all. But this is new.
    I had never heard of storing urine before.
    At times, we used “slop jars” in the evening, but that is different.


  6. Little Guy did well with the anesthesia. The man had to hold the mask on his face, as he was fighting it a bit. He was told to start counting to 200. He made it to 3 before falling asleep. 🙂
