Prayer Requests 11-29-16

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 59:1-9

Deliver me from my enemies, O God;
    be my fortress against those who are attacking me.
Deliver me from evildoers
    and save me from those who are after my blood.

See how they lie in wait for me!
    Fierce men conspire against me
    for no offense or sin of mine, Lord.
I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me.
    Arise to help me; look on my plight!
You, Lord God Almighty,
    you who are the God of Israel,
rouse yourself to punish all the nations;
    show no mercy to wicked traitors.

They return at evening,
    snarling like dogs,
    and prowl about the city.
See what they spew from their mouths—
    the words from their lips are sharp as swords,
    and they think, “Who can hear us?”
But you laugh at them, Lord;
    you scoff at all those nations.

You are my strength, I watch for you;
    you, God, are my fortress,
my God on whom I can rely.

  1. Another praise to God for the wonderful rain last night…and the hope of more tonight! The wind was a little high and electricity was off for about 90 minutes. But the candlelight was so inviting and comfortable that we just sat and talked the whole time. And I put two small candles in the window so the neighbors would know all was well inside, and they could come here if they were in need.

    The situation is not so good a couple of hours away in Gatlinburg. Wildfires are out of control due to high winds, about 100 homes in danger (as of last night), and there are mandatory evacuations. Please continue to remember the region in prayer. Thank you for your prayers!

  2. I’m thankful you are getting rain, Debra! Wish I could send some to Gatlinburg. We’ve had rain and more rain over the last probably six months or so that our yard is still soupy in places and again, it poured so hard and for hours Sunday night when we were driving home after visiting relatives, there were times we could hardly see the road.

    Such differences, and yet we know our Lord is in control. May He be pleased to send rain on the wildfires. Praying.

    Thank you for the prayers offered up regarding my early-morning post today on yesterday’s prayer thread. I am feeling much more peace now.

    Third Arrow has her driver’s test this morning. (That wasn’t what I felt unsettled about, btw.) This is her second time taking the test, and the first time (last year) didn’t go very well. She is showing a lot more confidence now, and more consistency and good decision-making behind the wheel the last few times she’s driven. Prayers that she will do well are appreciated, but mostly that God’s will be done. He knows whether or not she’s ready to be on the road solo. Prayers too, that if she does not pass, she’ll not lose heart and want to give up driving like she did the last time…

    Thank you so much.

  3. L isn’t getting to go home today. Right now she is receiving a blood transfusion and when she goes home she will have a pick line for twice a day antibiotics. Ugh. She is in a foul mood which I can’t blame her.

  4. Had another reminder today of the lies the enemy has thrown at my girls, & how much they need God to deliver them from those lies, & save their souls. Please join me in praying for Nightingale & Chickadee, & for the other prodigals mentioned on this blog.

  5. I’d like to request prayer for my husband. For some reason, unknown to him, several of the duties he is currently performing at work will be done by an outside company his company has hired, effective December 1. They are not telling him what he’ll be doing to fill the hours which would have been for his maintenance and related duties. He’s afraid he may get relegated to a desk job to a large degree, and he has been vocal in stating his opposition (or at least reluctance) to that.

    I am trying not to worry that his hours may be cut. The maintenance part of his job, he says, can vary from, say, anywhere from 20% to 60% of the workday, depending on circumstances, and maintenance is not the only thing that will be performed by this new company.

    Not the kind of news either of us would handle very well, with the huge looming expense in replacing our septic next year. And even if he still retains full-time status, if it’s largely desk work, that also would not be the kind of news my husband would like, as he’s done manual labor his entire working life.

    Thank you for your prayers.
