Prayer Requests 11-11-16

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 42

¹As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

  1. More prayers requested for safety again today.

    The power company is coming out today to drop the lines so that my husband can take down some trees on our property, which need to be removed to make room in the area our new septic system will be put. First and Third Arrows will be assisting him.

    Pray for safety with the power lines down, the trees coming down… however you are led. Thank you.

  2. Praying, Six.

    My body is bruised today and stiff and sore. Wrestling with fifteen year olds is not without cost. But it is easier on my blood pressure than listening to her scream and scaring the little folk. They know she is safe with me and so are they, and that is a good thing.
    Prayer for wisdom as we pursue medication. Not our first, second, or eighteenth choice.

  3. All’s well here. Eight big trees down, half a dozen or so smaller ones, too, roadway unblocked (we’re on a dead-end road, and the only neighbors past us are in South Carolina right now), power lines back up. Thank you for prayers.

    Mumsee, I don’t know how you do it. I was irritated almost beyond words when one of my kids left the house without telling anyone, walking over to the work zone just before the second round of tree-cutting began, telling them “Mom sent me”, and then, when Mom had a talk with said child and delivered a consequence, another child decided to tell Mom how she should be parenting differently than she did in that instance.

    And that’s not anywhere near a daily occurrence.

    I commend you and Mike for what you do, Mumsee. I’m in awe, and thankful for the good work you’re doing in the lives of the children God’s given you. He is faithful, and you are faithfully obedient to your call.

  4. Thanks, Six, for the encouragement. Perhaps people who don’t have quite such interesting children will learn from this that an encouraging word to those they know with children like these will go a long way. It is lonely work.
