Prayer Requests 5-16-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 75

We praise you, God,
    we praise you, for your Name is near;
    people tell of your wonderful deeds.

You say, “I choose the appointed time;
    it is I who judge with equity.
When the earth and all its people quake,
    it is I who hold its pillars firm.
To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
    and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.
Do not lift your horns against heaven;
    do not speak so defiantly.’”

No one from the east or the west
    or from the desert can exalt themselves.
It is God who judges:
    He brings one down, he exalts another.
In the hand of the Lord is a cup
    full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
    drink it down to its very dregs.

As for me, I will declare this forever;
    I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,
10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
    but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”

  1. I think I may be losing what few brain cells I had left or I may be being gaslighted.
    I am just really confused about what Guy wants. He keeps sending things back to me for changes. I make them and then he changes again.

  2. I had a dental procedure a week ago which caused minor discomfort for a few days. Then Friday night (actually Saturday morning around 1:00) the pain escalated majorly. Ruined my weekend — despite using ibuprofen to reduce the pain/inflammation — a weekend that I was looking forward to, with all my kids home for Mother’s Day, and two of my girls having birthdays. I couldn’t even get out of bed Sunday night to give the older ones a proper goodbye when they were heading out. 😦

    I went to the dentist yesterday, and he adjusted some things, so my pain is less. I am still taking ibuprofen but am getting a stomach ache today, so I will probably quit taking that now and hope my pain diminishes enough by Thursday night to not be a distraction while I’m performing. It’s my biggest concert since my senior piano recital in college 31 years ago. (Though this week’s performance is only half the length — 25 minutes — and I’m not playing from memory.)

    Please pray that I will be pain-free or nearly so by then. Also, that my finger that I injured today will not cause problems. It hurts somewhat to apply pressure with the finger, but since it’s the ring finger, I can substitute the middle finger or pinkie on the notes I’ve normally been using the ring finger.

    Thank you.

  3. It went well. One of the people who needed to be on the call was traveling and her phone was about to die. We are scheduled to speak again. I need to find out about getting a Florida license–the state are reciprocal so I would only need to pass the Law portion. There may be a second job offer on the table with this that would mean even more opportunity.
    I just want to do the right thing for all concerned but it sure did feel good being on the phone with someone telling another person “Kim is the one I want for this”.

  4. Glad to hear that, Kim.

    Prayers for you, NancyJill.

    I’ve not had an ibuprofen since after breakfast today. Mouth pain is ramping up again, and I have no other pain killers in the house. Stomach ache is gone — I might take another ibuprofen. Prayers for wisdom. Thanks.

  5. Yeah, I’ve been taking it with food, or immediately after eating. It’s possible, too, that the stomach ache I had earlier today was due to something else, as I ate a dessert I’ve not had before.

    They called from the dentist office this morning to see how I was doing, and mentioned I might consider taking Tylenol instead (or alternating the two). And that I should eat soft foods only for a few days.

    The inflammation might be a problem for a couple weeks. I am hoping that the turmeric supplement I take, which helps inflammatory conditions, will take the inflammation down sooner.

    Maybe being in some (manageable) degree of pain during the concert might help keep my mind off my normal performance nerves. 😛

    The good news tonight is that my finger no longer hurts at all. It’s like nothing ever happened. Thanks for praying!

    I’m having a bowl of noodles right now, and will take an ibuprofen with it. Prayers that that will help minimize the pain, and not cause a stomach ache, and help me sleep better tonight are appreciated. Thanks, all.

  6. Speaking of sleeping. . .Hubby had been plagued with those leg cramps last week (which eventually subsided to just a couple last night), & then Sunday night, due to another situation, he only got maybe three or four hours of sleep. He has taken tomorrow off from his Wednesday job because he needs the rest, & he has something he needs to work on at home.

    Please pray for a deep, restful sleep tonight, with no leg cramps, & that he won’t wake up too early. Thank you.
