Prayer Requests 11-4-16

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 36

¹The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.

For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.

He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast.

How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

  1. My MIL went to ER at request of her internist yesterday around three. He’d done a CT of her abdomen and thought she had a blockage in her stomach. ER docs thought it was appendicitis . They did a laparoscopic scope and determined it was a rather large growth in her stomach . She had melanoma five years ago which metastasized to her brain, lung and one other place….an experimental infusion treatment saved her life….we are hoping this isn’t cancer…..

  2. Ann–please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. I don’t know why events pile on us like this concerning our loved ones. It’s hard and overwhelming when it’s not simply bewildering. Cling to Jesus and Scott and hang in there. We’ve got your back with prayer.

  3. November 4
    Self Respect
    I Believe in Me

    I now accept that I am a channel for the infinite. I have access to the universal reservoir. (Remember this comes our of AA where there is a Higher Power, most understand that as God. Celebrate Recovery acknowledges that the higher power IS God) I am thirsty, I honor my desire to drink, I dip my cup into the water knowing that I may have as much as I can receive.
    In the past, self-doubt blocked me from knowing my desires. I felt undeserving of the reservoir. My lack of faith kept me separate from the universal (God). Today, I believe in me.

    The believing in me, is encouragement to yourself. It isn’t equating you to God. Those of us who grew up around alcoholics have a lot of self doubt. I have always expressed it by saying I wasn’t comfortable in my skin. As I have gotten older I have become more comfortable in my skin. I always self critique. I shouldn’t have said or done_____________. I recently attended a wedding where many of the women were dancing. I stood on the sidelines. I didn’t want to embarrass myself. I wanted to be free to dance, but I was around co-workers and didn’t want to be the water-cooler topic Monday morning.

    As always take from it whatever you need and apply it however it applies to you.

  4. Kim, even naming the “higher power” God doesn’t make it a Christian concept–because “God” is just a generic term. Just as I might call Mike my dad and your dad might be Robert, so my God is Yahweh and yours might be some vague genie or Allah.

    In other words, while there might be some useful info in these, they aren’t really Christian. This one is quite distinctly not Christian. Faith in oneself has nothing whatever to do with finding connection to the true God; it can definitely keep me from Him. My own vote is that if you want to post them, it’s better somewhere other than the prayer thread. (They aren’t something to read in prayer meeting.) I’ve hesitated to say anything, because I understand they’ve been helpful to you and I know you’re posting them in love.


  5. Prayer for wisdom with ten year old as he continues to struggle with asthma. He has been using the nebulizer several times each day in addition to the rescue breather. Usually he is better after a few days of this but I don’t want to wait longer than I should or take him in when they are going to just do the same and he will catch a cold in addition. Thanks.
