Prayer Requests 1-11-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 105:1-7

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

  1. Please continue to pray for the restoration of my relationship with my brother, J. He did send a short email reply, basically stating things were crazy in his world right now, but that he would send a real reply in a few days and he thanked me for reaching out, which I took to be a very good sign.
    I was apprehensive that I’d get a mean email in return….so was very pleasantly surprised to get the one I did. It was quite encouraging.

    All three of my older brothers, M, M & J, are atheists. Two of them have terrible porn addictions. Please pray for their salvation.

    Additionally, my middle brother, M., is really struggling right now emotionally. He is in a loveless marriage and has (in my opinion) clinical depression but can’t take medication for it b/c he’s a pilot….We don’t normally speak frequently, but recently he’s been phoning a lot for support. Being a pilot can be a lonely lifestyle as one is frequently away from family, alone in a sterile hotel room…..He’s been sober about thirty years and is quite active in the AA community–so he’s done the whole “surrender to a higher power” thing–but he doesn’t really get the gospel. And, he tends to put his faith in humanistic psychology–which generally encourages one to put oneself first–among other things contradictory to Christian principles. Anyway–he is very depressed right now and could really benefit from prayer.

    I know I’ve expressed before that I was an atheist from age 12 to 26….Well, my sister became a born-again Christian when she was 22, so I was 16. She immediately began praying for me and soon had a whole host of other Christians praying for her baby sister….these people prayed for me for YEARS…. When I came to Christ, she told me about all the people who’d been praying for me during my lost years. It was humbling and inspiring all at the same time.

  2. So small in the overall scheme of things, but I did not get enough sleep last night, and am cranky beyond words this morning. Feeling like a pot ready to boil over. Pray as you see fit, and especially for my family, that they don’t bear the brunt of my mood at any point today. Thanks.

  3. I thought of you, Ann, this morning during my prayer time. Of course, I think of most of you and whatever concerns you have expressed. I pray that your letter may bring some healing to you both.

    My husband received a letter from his brother a year or so ago. He was completely taken by surprised, as he had no idea that his brother was angry from a recent discussion. After some prayer, he called his brother and they met to discuss it. It was a good thing and it settled some things. They still don’t agree and are not close, but were able to agree to disagree.

    I was so angry after a call from my sister, that I had to force myself to call her last night. We agree on very little, which doesn’t bother me. Other things do, however. The call turned out to be quite pleasant and ended with us telling each other that we do love the other. It wasn’t at all what I expected. I am so grateful that the Lord kept me from what I really wanted to do and say–yet again.

    Prayers for wisdom and for you, 6. Last Sunday I asked a lady at church how she was, since I could see she was not her usual bubbly, loving self. She confessed she was crabby and not at all fit to be around. 😀 I am sure she had many sending up some extra prayers for her.

  4. Along the lines of “look good, feel good” mental health, I got up dressed and out of the house this morning. I am working from the office today.

    I am discovering there is a lot of vascular dementia in my family so I am going to have to break down, go to the doctor and get checked for blood pressure, cholesterol, and all that other stuff I would rather ignore. 🙂

  5. This from a friend who is asking for prayers.

    As many of you know, I have been suffering with much pain, weakness and incapacitation in my right hand and have been for quite some time. I was recently diagnosed with a rare condition known as Kienbock’s Disease. The lunate bone in my right wrist has died and is fractured. Of course, I’m right handed!

    Thanks to Blue Cross Blue Shield they have referred me to a specialist in Atlanta. Dr. V. Patel has reviewed my records and consulted with me twice over the phone. I am scheduled for a Proximal Row Cartectomy (PRC) in Atlanta on Friday, Jan. 20th. He will be taking three bones out of my wrist, which will give me the most normality for the longest period of time. There really is no other option for this advanced stage of KD.

    Please include me in your prayers. This is a scary procedure for me and recovery is lengthy. God is good though as He has provided this talented and caring surgeon to fix me. I’m so grateful that I can trust God as He has shown me how much He loves and cares for me!

  6. Will you please say a prayer for a dear friend of mine. S worked in an abortion clinic as a younger woman. She had an abortion and has a child in heaven she will one day see. She became a Christian and shares her story with others. She has never had another child, but she had a beloved dog. He was close to 18 years old and a rescue. She has had him 10 years and he was in failing health and could barely walk. She was planning to take him to the vet Friday to say good bye. I received a message from her on FB that he is gone. He was her 4 legged child and she loved him dearly. Please pray for her grief. I talked her her yesterday and we both cried. He was a good boy.

  7. Thank you for your prayers. The vast majority of the day went quite well, and I don’t think any of my family even guessed that I was struggling with my mood at any point today.

    Never underestimate the power of prayer.
