Prayer Requests 4-3-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 30

I will exalt you, Lord,
    for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

  1. I was just looking through pics to find some for eighteen year old as he asked. I was remembering the building of the hay barn and saw your dad and the boys hard at work. That was a neat experience for us. I hope it was for him as well.

  2. Over the weekend, I had requested prayer for Chickadee & the McKs. In trying to explain one concern, I forgot to mention the main one – that her “issues” (anxiety & such, probably due to Aspergers’s Syndrome, or whatever it may be) have gotten worse over the three years she’s lived with them. I believe that they are not doing anything to help her, or to encourage her to grow.

  3. That’s good! Even better if it is in a positive light. The children still talk about Miss… from Canada in her winter get up to teach music….

  4. It is in a positive light, Mumsee – he loves to learn about new places, so he liked seeing Idaho, and he really seems to care about your family, talking about the children by name, and praying for them when he and my mother do their evening devotions together.

    I still have the little pincushion mouse that I made out of the scraps of each of the children’s outfits that they sewed. It went with me to West Africa, and is here in the city with me. I think of them every time I use it.

  5. For any are still up, my mother was just talking to me about the husband of the couple, who is still staying with my parents. His health is rapidly disintegrating, and I suspect, from certain distinguishing symptoms, that he may have developed a relatively rare, but life threatening condition – interestingly, my mother said today that another friend, who had no idea what I thought, suggested that it might be that same condition. However, his physician recently retired, and while he is in the process of looking for another, there is no one to really examine him carefully. From what my mother was telling me today, I’m afraid that one morning they may find him dead. The emergency room he went to today didn’t take his symptoms, which are fairly subtle, seriously – he waited for six hours and then left. Tomorrow, they are going to call a nursing helpline, as often the nurses on the line will act to make the emergency rooms respond better – they helped activate the emergency department when my sister developed double pneumonia and was dangerously ill. Pray that someone will recognize the problem and respond correctly. If it is that condition, his symptoms can be pretty much reversed with medication, but if it isn’t treated, death is the result.
