Prayer Requests 2-24-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 147:1-12

Praise the Lord.

How good it is to sing praises to our God,
    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
    he gathers the exiles of Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of the stars
    and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
    his understanding has no limit.
The Lord sustains the humble
    but casts the wicked to the ground.

Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
    make music to our God on the harp.

He covers the sky with clouds;
    he supplies the earth with rain
    and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle
    and for the young ravens when they call.

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,
    who put their hope in his unfailing love.

12 Extol the Lord, Jerusalem;
    praise your God, Zion.

  1. Prayer for the people in the famine regions. People just wanting to live their lives, like you and I, raising their children, visiting the grandparents. But politics and crime get in the way. Again. Come Lord Jesus. But not before your people are safely in the Family.

  2. So much heartache.

    Kaitlyn’s diagnosis is stage IV cancer. Palliative care only. She is being moved to Saskatoon and starts chemotherapy tomorrow. Her eyes are on Jesus and she is being so strong – the rest of us are basket cases (I just came home from work). Her mom was on the conference call with the cancer doctors and wanted Kaitlyn to go to Calgary for treatment, but that would mean another week of waiting before chemo. Kaitlyn was very firm with her mom that she was going to fight and wanted to start right away. She posted this late last night:
    The Lord is my light and my salvation so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? -Psalm 27:1

  3. I am reminded that sometimes life is just so unfair. Twenty or so years ago when I was praying desperately for a baby, it seemed every week someone had given birth and dumped a baby to die in a trash can, on the side of the road, or at Wal-Mart.
    In this very thread we have a 21 year old who it seems chose to end his life and a 23 year old who wants to fight for her life. If the 21 year old wanted to die why didn’t God give him the cancer? These questions and the answers to them are beyond me….Only God knows.

  4. It looks like I lost a couple of posts on my mobile. I just wanted to acknowledge the prayer requests today–so much pain and grief, if I did not know that God cares and hears, it would be unbearable. Praying with you.

    I also wanted to let everyone know how very much your prayers on behalf of Grandbaby Abby have been appreciated. She was just released from NICU today, and has been home with her family for just over an hour! It has been 64 trying days. Son and Daughter-in-Law and all of us are just so thankful and relieved to have her home where she belongs. :–)

  5. Praising God with you, Debra. So glad Baby Abby is home with her family!

    Prayers requested for a successful fundraiser for a church friend, S. She had an aneurysm in her back last summer and needed emergency surgery. She ended up paralyzed from the waist down. They weren’t sure if that would be temporary or permanent, but she is still wheelchair-bound at this point. Sunday there is a benefit for her, with the goal of raising funds for a wheelchair-accessible vehicle.

  6. something our pastor posted this week on FB:

    For those struggling through a difficult day/season:

    Shall we indeed accept good from “God, and shall we not accept adversity (Job 2:10).
    Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him (Job 13:15)

    For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us (Romans 8:18).
