Prayer Requests 4-21-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 47

Clap your hands, all you nations;
    shout to God with cries of joy.

For the Lord Most High is awesome,
    the great King over all the earth.
He subdued nations under us,
    peoples under our feet.
He chose our inheritance for us,
    the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.

God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
    the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
    sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
    sing to him a psalm of praise.

God reigns over the nations;
    God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the nations assemble
    as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
    he is greatly exalted.

  1. It was emotional. She is probably no she is still smoking because she is avoiding me. Time to lay down the options and let her go. Her father doesn’t want me to do it because she will either end up back at his mother’s or living with her boyfriend and his dad. Guess where she is all the time anyway?
    Everyone seems to agree with Mr. P so I have to, too. The only person who is going to get hurt in this situation is me. I wanted things to be different but they aren’t. Also the therapist is going to refer BG out to another therapist who specializes in eating disorders.

  2. Kim – You know how I ache over Chickadee being with the McKs, so you know I don’t say this lightly at all. . .but yes, you need to let her go, even if she goes to the last place you want her to go. I feel a tightening in my chest even as I type those words, because I know how it will tear your heart out if she does.

    But I also know, & you also know, the Only One who can really make a difference in BG’s heart & life, the One who loves our daughters even more than we do, & loves us, too. I do cry out to God to bring Chickadee home, but I end the prayer with “But most of all, I want Your will to be done in her,” & I mean it.

  3. Kim, it is hard. We all have hopes and dreams for our children, but they get to decide.

    As to you being the only one hurt, not so. You can hold on to everything and let it hurt you or you can allow the freeing that comes when we let others shoulders their responsibilities. It is hard. Unbelievably hard but it is okay. Remember the prodigal son? Do you suppose it was easy for his dad to do that? But dad went on with his life while son was doing all the stupid things he did, and then dad was able to be there to welcome him home. Wear yourself out with things that are not yours, and you won’t be able to help her later when she is ready.

    Meantime, she is hurting herself until she decides the stove really is hot and turns from it. We don’t know when or if that will be but you cannot continue to try to live her life for her. Love Mr P and move forward. Be there and strong when she is ready.

    And we will continue to pray with and for you as you struggle through this.

  4. Kim, good friends of ours prayed that their daughter would return to the Lord and asked God to do what it takes – even sending her to Africa. She turned back to Jesus and guess where she ended up? Africa. First as a teacher and then after marrying returned to Africa as a missionary in a closed country.

    Please pray for travelling mercies for my family and me today. We’re heading to Edmonton to catch a flight to Mexico for our son’s wedding. I’m very excited and nervous which is a good prelude to a migraine.

  5. Continuing to hold you and BG close Kim
    And while I’m here…some days I believe I am going to lose my mind…like today…I need to go home…….and I don’t believe Tuesday is soon enough…..I’m shaking all over trying to keep it together…tomorrow I will be spending time with my sweet niece who lost her baby girl in January…praying for a sweet respite…I need to breathe….

  6. I’m a wreck today and need prayers on multiple levels.

    [Just erased a long and raw addendum to that. You’re better off not knowing.]

  7. Thanks for the prayers. I am feeling somewhat better tonight, though my eyes hurt pretty bad. Three-and-a-half hours sleep last night and going on a crying jag this afternoon didn’t help them at all. Shock.

    Prayers appreciated for better sleep tonight. I learned today another tough conversation has to happen, and soon, but I need to be rested or it will probably be a disaster.

    Have a blessed weekend, everyone. Two children (well, adult children) have birthdays, and I have a piano concert. I would just love for things to go smoothly rather than roughly with all of that. Thanks for prayers about those things, if it doesn’t seem too selfish to ask.
