Prayer Requests 5-13-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 70

Hasten, O God, to save me;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

May those who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    turn back because of their shame.
But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”

But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
    Lord, do not delay.

  1. I know I have mentioned my “Emotional North” couple, Bert and Mary (not their real names). 3 or 4 years ago Bert suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. One thing and another has happened and he has given up. By given up, I mean completely. Even though both were raised in the Baptist church neither are believers. Please remember them in your prayers as Mary tries to deal with the situation.

  2. Praying for your friends Kim…I recall the point my Dad said he was done…”I’m ready” is what he said over and over….
    How I ask “Bert” will have his eyes opened to the deep deep love of our Saviour before he takes his last breath…trusting our Lord with his life ❤

  3. The man is still in the hospital. He had become so severely dehydrated (despite my mother and the visiting nurse’s best efforts to keep fluids in him) that his electrolyte balance is way off kilter. It takes days to readjust that and it requires very careful monitoring since correcting it too quickly can cause swelling of the brain. My parents took some personal items he needed to him, and my mother said he is very disoriented to place and time, which is a classic sign of delirium. They are in hopes that the stronger antibiotics are having an effect.

  4. There is a small memorial for Kaitlyn today at camp. We ended up planning the activities even though her mom was told to she would need to do that as it is more for them than anyone else. It has been a frustrating week – we’ve all “moved on” since her large memorial service and while we’re not forgetting Kaitlyn we do need to get the work done at camp. K’s mom keeps asking for weird things and we’re trying to accommodate but we just want today to be over.

    Please pray for grace for all of us at camp and understanding. I can’t imagine losing a child and have no idea how she feels.

    It’s also raining and we were planning a walk around the camp to favourite spots of Kaitlyn’s and sharing stories from those areas.

  5. And I am now covered in hives!!! So please pray for Sherri as she won’t have my support (not that I’m so important, but I understand how she feels)

  6. Continued prayer for Carol’s health which seems to be getting quite fragile. She’s in a lot of pain but is taking the max dose of pain meds they can really give her. She’s in a lot of discomfort and it’s affected her mobility. While this has been an ongoing dip for maybe 1-2 years now, it seems to be dipping again.

    I did get the email & phone # of her friend Dottie from her home church (LCMS in Downey) so plan to connect with her. Will text her brother at some point, but he’s obviously pretty estranged from her right now so I don’t want to make that any worse than it already is. But it really would be nice if he’d call her now and again. 😦

  7. Had a message from my little sister when I got home from work…Mom is in the hospital…dehydrated and possible UTI…they want to admit her overnight but she is being argumentative….she is worried about her dog…even though my sister the champion dog lover is there to care for her dog….prayer that she will relent and accept the care she needs….

  8. I just realized what I have done today. I fully intend to see the day through but L will have her parents and daughter with her and C will have her parents and children. I will have neither.
    I just need strength to get through today and the mess I created for myself.

  9. I agree, Mumsee, but there are moments when the pain emerges. In my case, I let myself cry a bit, & talk to God about it, then leave it in His hands (or at least I try to).

    For our dear Kim, the initial pain is still fresh.

  10. Sometimes we are handed the mess…we did not create it..none the less it remains painful and difficult…I love you Kim…you are a blessing to so many..and I pray for the day certain people in your life realize just how much of a blessing you are before it is too late for them ❤
    My Mother is to remain in the hospital a couple more days…she cannot walk nor stand and they are running a plethora of tests. The doctor believes she has had a stroke and will need rehab 24 hour care…she is a spit fire and her tongue has not been impacted, much to the chagrin of the nurses 😛 I may need to make another trip back, just awaiting word from my sisters….
