Prayer Requests 12-20-16

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 85

You, Lord, showed favor to your land;
    you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You forgave the iniquity of your people
    and covered all their sins.
You set aside all your wrath
    and turned from your fierce anger.

Restore us again, God our Savior,
    and put away your displeasure toward us.
Will you be angry with us forever?
    Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
Will you not revive us again,
    that your people may rejoice in you?
Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

I will listen to what God the Lord says;
    he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—
    but let them not turn to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
    that his glory may dwell in our land.

10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
    and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
    and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
    and prepares the way for his steps.

  1. The father of our good friends passed away this morning. They were expecting it, just not so soon. Please pray for them as they walk through the decisions that will need to be made and as they prepare for Christmas without him.

  2. Our godson, Nick, has had his apartment bldg. burn. He and the many other residents are out of their homes. The Red Cross has helped and Nick and his girlfriend are staying with relatives. They need prayer to really come to know the Lord. His life has been rough and tough and he has not had a good upbringing. He has had good friends around him that have helped him.

    His sister, Mariya, also needs prayer. She just had a baby. She also needs the Lord. She also is surrounded by good people who want to help her. Unfortunately, she also has those who pull her the other way. All prayers appreciated.

    Our little Annika has an ear infection. She is on meds now, but prayers appreciated there, too.

  3. A prayer request (edited for clarity) from my friend Jenn, the lady who has a myriad of health issues, some quite serious. . .

    “I’m not feeling well. Actually I’m really sick .. I pray I make it to Christmas with no big issues. Please can you say an extra prayer for me .. I have no energy ..falling in and out of sleeping. My thyroid masses are growing and growing and hurt so bad .. my bladder infection is so bad.”

    She’s on the last antibiotic they have for this chronic infection. It is very possible it may kill her someday.

    Jenn is in her mid-40s, & recently became a grandmother to twin boys. She yearns to be able to be around for them as they grow. I think Jenn has saving faith, but I’m not completely sure. To the best of my knowledge, her husband & grown son & daughter are not believers. Jenn’s parents go to our church, & are a nice couple.

  4. I wish I could edit that. I purposely put in the italics (which I forgot to close) to distinguish her words from mine. Oh well, the quotations marks should be good enough for that.

  5. I received this prayer request on our intra-office communication. I couldn’t catch my breath for a moment. Would you please pray for this family?

    “We’re all busy with holiday festivities and spending memorable time with family and friends and happiness is all around us. Tragedy is almost unimaginable at Christmas time, although it has again struck, this time so very close to home.

    My daughter’s very best friend in Mobile, Andrea, a sweet and caring young woman, has been raising her beautiful five month old son (Harrison) on her own as a single Mom. This was Harrison’s first week of daycare, Monday was his very first day. Tragically, unimaginably, Harrison stopped breathing while at daycare, and passed away before medical help could arrive.

    Most of you reading this message are parents, and are likely shocked & saddened at reading this message. Like me, you’re likely thinking “How could this happen? Why?” Even with a solid belief system and a strong faith, it’s beyond our capacity to truly understand or accept something like this happening.

    My reason for sending this message is twofold: Most important, our ranks have many, many prayer warriors, and I humbly I ask that regardless of what you’re doing at this moment, please stop and pray for baby Harrison and the family. Their pain is unfathomable, however we believers know that lifting others up in prayer can often be the only solace or comfort after the unthinkable has happened.

    Last, hold your children and loved ones a little tighter this holiday season and know that tomorrow is not promised. Events such as these often can make us quicker to say “I love you”, or equally important, “I’m sorry”, or “I forgive you”.

    The power of prayer works, and thank you for taking a moment to read this message, and thank you for praying for Andrea, baby Harrison and their family.”

  6. Hubby was once again talking about God to Little Guy (he slips things in here & there). Little Guy responded by saying that he doesn’t believe in God, that God is fake, not real.

    “Where’d you get that information from?” Hubby asked.

    “From my mom,” Little Guy replied.

    My heart is aching.

    Please pray for God to bring both Little Guy & Nightingale (& of course, Chickadee, too) to saving, abiding faith. Thank you.

  9. Such sadness when it’s a time for joy.
    I’m praying of course, but don’t quite know what about.
    God knows.

    On a happy note for us, JK brought 17 day old Tolliver over to see us. (Or us to see him. He slept through it all. Jenn says he hasn’t yet learned day from night.)
