Prayer Requests 4-8-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 36

I have a message from God in my heart
    concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God
    before their eyes.

In their own eyes they flatter themselves
    too much to detect or hate their sin.
The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
    they fail to act wisely or do good.
Even on their beds they plot evil;
    they commit themselves to a sinful course
    and do not reject what is wrong.

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
    your justice like the great deep.
    You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
    People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
    you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light.

10 Continue your love to those who know you,
    your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 May the foot of the proud not come against me,
    nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 See how the evildoers lie fallen—
    thrown down, not able to rise!

  1. Please pray for me, as I prepare and preach tomorrow morning on the Story of the Three Servants and the Story of the Ten Servants. Děkuji.

  2. Please pray for BG. She woke up crying. Her stomach hurts. She had me rub her back (said it hurt around her kidneys). I gave her miralax and rubbed her back until she fell back to sleep.
    I have beginning to feel like one of those Munchausen by Proxy parents. Do I haul her to the doctor again? Do I wait and see? What do I do? Today I could try to get her in to see someone at our regular GP’s office but we just saw the gastroenterologist on Thursday! I think I am just going to wait and see…. It hurts a mama when her child hurts.

  3. It’s me again, with another prayer request. Asking prayer for my Chickadee once again.

    Nightingale’s best friend (NBF) is now the manager of the Claire’s store Nightingale used to work at. NBF saw the McK mom & daughters (& Chickadee) in the store the other day. She said that they acted very weird. Mom McK treated them like little girls, & talked in the third person as moms of little ones often do (like when we might say, “Mommy is going to buy this pretty necklace” or some such thing).

    NBF said that she could see how that family is holding Chickadee back from maturing & growing.

    I sometimes feel like my daughter is being held captive by this family, & that they are brainwashing her. I know that is an exaggeration, that whatever is being done is not being done purposely, or with malice, but it still bothers me.

    Praying Chickadee’s eyes & ears will be open to what is going on there (& to God & His truth, most of all), & that God would give her the courage & strength to separate herself from them*. Praying for a mighty move of God in that family, too. (And, as I said last week, praying that the McKs will come to the conclusion that it is time for Chickadee to move back home.)

    *Note: Except for the time she spends with us babysitting, Chickadee’s whole life, including any social life she has, revolves around them & their family & friends. Breaking away from them will take much strength on her part. But maybe she doesn’t have to totally break away from the friendship, just the living with them. Okay, now I’m just rambling.

  4. I suspect there are a lot of things that hurt for her these days and they’re not all physical. 😦 Having a mom who will sit with you and rub your back is a good thing–as well as a comfort.

  5. I can’t even remember my last update on Kaitlyn. Please forgive me if I’ve said this before. They’ve removed her pic line, are no longer taking her vitals, have increased pain meds and have started sedating her. She had a few very agitated episodes this week with confusion. 😦

  6. It just seems like this has all happened so fast Kare…in a way that is a blessing, her suffering will be short but it sure doesn’t feel like it to those who will be mourning. May the end be peaceful ….

  8. Kaitlyn is with Jesus!

    After several days of being sedated and usually incoherent, this morning while being held by one of her brothers, she pushed the oxygen up to the top of her head and said “I’m done with this. I’m ready to meet Jesus” and then she did.

    I’m so sad but also rejoicing that she knew Jesus as her Saviour.

    Please pray as her non-believing family makes funeral arrangements. Pray that God will draw them through this.

  9. 😦 I’m so sorry, this was such a painful stretch as she was so young and this hit so suddenly. 😦 Never easy for loved ones to process, and it is especially hard, of course, for those who have no faith or assurance of her destiny.

    Thankful her suffering is over.

    Trying to remember, she had a husband and fairly young children?

  10. So sorry, Kare. You have made Kaitlyn real to us here, so I am crying at her passing, but I am so glad she is with Jesus. Praying her family will soon come to faith in Him, too.

  11. I just learned that at about 1:30am the nurse came in to give her a pill and couldn’t get her to respond. The nurse went to get a doctor and K’s mom called her dad who brought all the siblings over. The nurse came back in and moved the oxygen thing up onto her forehead. Kaitlyn’s eyes flew open, she grabbed the oxygen, put it back in her nose and said “what are you doing? I need this. I’m not ready to die.” Her family was laughing and crying about that – so Kaitlyn.
