Prayer Requests 5-6-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 63

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
    I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
    they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
    and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    all who swear by God will glory in him,
    while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

  1. Update on the man staying with my parents: My mother told me last night that the hospital finally came up with a diagnosis for the man’s ongoing problem. They probably didn’t pick up on it the time my mother went with him to the ER because, by what my mother says about that visit, they didn’t take the right kind of test sample for it. But he went again on Thursday for the same problem, and must have been given the right test. He has C. difficile. So, he is now on powerful antibiotics, that may or may not work as a superbug like that is hard to kill. It isn’t usually a risk for healthy people, but I spent a while last night telling my mother what she needed to do to protect herself and my father. From what she says, the man is becoming delirious from the infection.

  2. So sorry to hear that he has a superbug, Roscuro. But at least they now know what is wrong and have an avenue of treatment. Prayers for your Mom and Dad and their house guest.

  3. Meant to post this earlier–but I’d sure appreciate prayers for Lindsey starting now until about noon. She’s taking the SAT for the second time–she made a 1300 the first time, but needs to get at least a 1360 for admission to her first choice college. Please pray for her!

  4. Roscuro – Is he hospitalized now, or back at your parents’ home?

    My mom had c-diff once or twice, & we had to be extra careful about good hygiene for all of us around her.

  5. I’m not sure how well husband slept last night. He was in so much pain trying to get comfortable I finally went and slept in the second guest room. I worried that once he was comfortable, I would move and start the whole process over again. He left for work before I woke.

  6. Speaking of husbands & their sleep, Hubby had more leg cramps last night, but was able to get more sleep than the night before. He had at least one hour of cramp-free sleep before having to get up.

  7. Kizzie, could any of his medication be causing the cramping? My dad was able to go on a different med and the leg cramps stopped.

  8. Usually, he doesn’t get the cramps every night, & when he does, maybe only once or twice in a night (occasionally more). These he believes are due to getting a cortisone injection in his shoulder the other day. He looked into it, & found that steroids can cause leg cramps, & cortisone is a steroid.

    Which reminds me. . . I don’t know if I’ve ever asked prayer for his left shoulder. He finally went to the orthopedist about it, & it turns out he has a spur on the end of his clavicle, where it joins the shoulder, possible due to an injury from many years ago.

  9. A good phone conversation with an interesting proposition. It would put me back doing something that
    A. I am good at doing
    B. I would be training agents
    C. Less stress
    D. More money
    It would mean more of a commute than from my living room to my office, but I would also be around people again and my tendency to talk and visit would be an asset rather than something that someone else thought they had to keep me from doing.
    Change is always scary and I don’t want to jump into something and regret it, but this would be with people I respect and who would show me the same courtesy.
    I have another person to speak with and see if there is an opportunity there before I leap. It would be closer to home and possibly allow me the same freedom.

    Prayers for knowing what to do would be appreciated.

  10. And yes, change is scary–but I suspect in your situation it might be less scary than staying where you are!

    Are there any downsides?

  11. Well, see if the other person can match the offer. Could you work at home a day or two a week and lessen the commute a tad, or work four days?

  12. Unless it’s stressful, the commute might not be bad. You have an hour to yourself, listen to the CD, think about how it can be done better, etc.
    And a prayer or two.
    I never minded driving unless it was bumper to bumper, stop and go.

    I used to get on the beltway by six every morning. Traffic was light, I got there and fixed coffee and settled down before the commotion started.

  13. A more pressing problem with BG. Nana says she can’t live there. Mr P says she can’t live here. The boyfriend’s dad said she can’t stay there and her dad said he doesn’t have a place to put her.
    I said I was done enabling. Not sure what she can do.

  14. It is hard, Kim. She made this choice, it was not what you chose for her. She will have to fix it. She has friends and neighbors and rels. Something will come up. She may have to get a job and pay some rent somewhere. We will continue to pray with you for her and for you. Tell her she is welcome to come back to Idaho, that should motivate her to get a job.

  15. And Carol was told she’ll be evicted if she doesn’t come up with the rent money she owes by Monday.

    I told her to sit down and talk to them about what she can do to prevent that from happening (barring handing them some money which she doesn’t have and no one will — this time — be giving her).

    Sometimes it just has to come to ‘sink or swim’ to get people to swim, no matter what their age.

  16. It was good to be in my Boundaries Sunday school class today. While it is my Monkey she has created her own circus.
    The leader of the Sunday School class is a licensed therapist. She is of the opinion that BG needs in patient treatment for her eating habits and her addiction.
    I am also looking into Mensah Medical in Chicago. I have a friend who had great success with her anorexic daughter there some years ago. C is now 26 and perfectly lovely.
