Prayer Requests 3-2-17

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.
Ask me,
    and I will make the nations your inheritance,
    the ends of the earth your possession.
You will break them with a rod of iron;
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
    and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

  1. Prayer for Jo and others on the mission field in distant lands. That they would know God’s peace and joy in the midst of the loneliness of being far from the familiar and family.

  2. So, yesterday afternoon, on the way home from school, I was thinking, “I’m getting there! I am definitely starting to get back to normal.” Several hours later, I had a sore throat and an awful headache. The doctor I’ve been going to here said that on average, college/university students get sick 12 times in the first year – I think I’m about halfway there.

  3. Twelve times?! He probably sees a lot of people with a far different lifestyle than you have, roscuro. Hope you get over it completely soon!

  4. Husband took a wrong turn in Coeurdalene or get rerouted or something. Anyway, he is going up into Canada and that should be interesting. He does not like to put on chains but does it if required but with his joint problems it takes a long time. Prayer for wisdom for him.

  5. K, I think she was quoting a statistic. When she said, she wasn’t being dismissive – she looked genuinely concerned for me, and kept saying, “We can write you a note if you need to miss class.” That was three weeks ago. I haven’t gotten a note, because I can only get one exemption form per semester. If I’m not violently ill, with uncontrollable vomiting, or actually losing consciousness, there is no sense in using up that exemption.

  6. I’m not sure I can print this. This is a Facebook post from Sarah who is the pregnant ex-missionary I mentioned a couple of weeks ago.

  7. Update on Kaitlyn:
    I was in today to see Kaitlyn. Poor girl is in a hospital room with 3 other, mostly elderly, cancer patients. What a noisy busy place. I don’t know how she can rest. She’s having bad diarrhea from the chemo, but no nausea or throwing up thankfully. She will have another chemo treatment on Saturday and then be discharged. She will be staying at a young couple’s house in the city close to the hospital instead of coming ‘home’ to camp for the week and then will have another chemo the Saturday after and decide where she will go for her recovery from the first round of chemotherapy treatments.

    I met her mom and gave her a big hug and we visited while Kaitlyn slept. Apparently I’m her most boring visitor because her mom said she hasn’t let herself sleep when others were visiting. 🙂 That makes me happy that she is comfortable enough to just let herself sleep while I’m there.

    The oxygen supply person came and brought her travel tank so she can be discharged and the social worker arrived just as I was leaving, so things are in the works to make sure everything is taken care of.

    When I left, Kaitlyn’s mom gave me a big hug – I can’t imagine being in a strange city all alone and having to leave your child in the hospital and go to a small B&B for the night.

  8. Sorry. It didn’t work. Sarah and the (unborn) baby are still in the hospital. The baby now weighs almost 2 pounds. He is at 29 weeks. If they can make it until 34 weeks, the docs will then take him. Her fluid is really low. Her faith is really strong, and there are hundreds praying for mother and son.
