Prayer Requests 5-31-17

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget to pray for The Gambia, and for Ajisuun as well. 

Anyone else?

Psalm 89:1-8

I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
    with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
    through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
    that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
    I have sworn to David my servant,
‘I will establish your line forever
    and make your throne firm through all generations.’

The heavens praise your wonders, Lord,
    your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.
For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord?
    Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings?
In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared;
    he is more awesome than all who surround him.
Who is like you, Lord God Almighty?
    You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.

  1. I haven’t heard an update on my friend L. I am really worried about her.
    My friend B may get out of the hospital today. He is driving his wife crazy wanting her at the hospital with him the whole time. This is the man that once on vacation wouldn’t let me make him a sandwich. He waited to eat until his wife got back so she could make it. She says he would have her breathe for him if it was possible. 😉

  2. I need patience again today. Guy just called. I told him I was going in to the office today. Nope that doesn’t work for him. He wants me to hang around my house while he is driving. He is going to need me to be available.
    I cannot stand anyone trying to control me. It makes me into a person I don’t like, but I am sick of his abuse and the way he treats me like a door mat.

  3. Sounds like you are one of those whatchacallit assistants. They do all of the planning and coordinating and thinking for the boss and he knows it. You must be very useful! I would call that a positive. But it is not what you are wanting to do and if you and your husband and God agree this change is for the best, it is right around the corner. Work through the tape, win the race, and move forward.

  5. In the grand scheme of things, this is trivial . . . but now that my father-in-law is with the Lord, my 80-year-old mother-in-law has some freedom to get out and about that she hasn’t had in years, and specifically I have never been able to do much in the way of outings with her. She herself is in good health (doesn’t walk with a cane, for example, and still tends her garden and cares for her house, and cooks and bakes).

    Well, my husband and I have talked about taking her with us to our state park as soon as the weather cooperates. (It has rained daily or every other day the vast majority of this year.) We plan to go tomorrow afternoon, all three of us.

    Well, if I’m right on the timing of the nesting of the pileated woodpeckers we saw in mid-April (finishing hollowing out the nest), it is likely to be just about time that they have large young in their nests, nestlings big enough to be sticking their necks and heads out when begging for food. We have no way of knowing if they had a successful nest, and I can only estimate when the eggs were laid, but the timing seems quite likely. I would love for my husband and me, and for my mother-in-law, to be able to see that . . . and/or see other really nice demonstrations of God’s created beauty. But young pileated woodpeckers in the nest would be extra special. If you could pray that the weather would be good and we could have a good outing with her, with good and special sightings, I would appreciate that. It has been a difficult year for her, and with some people dear to her moving out of town soon, and I think it would be good to have it be a really special day for all of us. And that would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity all of us would treasure if we could see that.

  6. Carol’s in isolation/quarantine at her facility due to scabies. They’ve taken all her books, belongings, her tablet, everything from her to be bagged so she’s essentially in a room by herself for the foreseeable future. Visiting dermatology nurse who saw her today told her she cannot even give/hand anything (like an item) to anyone as it’s that easily transmitted.

  7. skin mites, argh. My son had a bad case of excema and they got all frantic thinking it was the worst case of scabies they had ever seen. They looked at me like I was a bad parent.


  8. I didn’t think scabies were that “easy” to catch, that it required long skin to skin contact (thus its connection so often to sex). But from what Carol’s being told — and I don’t know if this is precautionary for the most part or what — they can be transmitted on objects handed between people.

    Of course, the facility is probably intensely concerned that this is nipped in the bud and doesn’t spread (though I’m thinking there may be others there with rashes they just haven’t reported to the inhouse ‘wellness’ center — or Carol may have picked it up during one of her hospital stays I suppose).


  9. But the hospital did conduct a skin test last time she was in (a little over a week ago) and it came back positive for scabies, so they have confirmed that’s what it is. She’s complained of this “rash” for several weeks, maybe 1-2 months I believe.


  10. This is the kind of thing I’ve seen online about it:

    Scabies usually is spread by prolonged skin-to-skin contact with a person who has scabies. Scabies sometimes also can be spread by contact with items such as clothing, bedding, or towels that have been used by a person with scabies, but such spread is very uncommon, with the exception of crusted scabies.Jul 19, 2013

    But also this: Persons with crusted scabies are very contagious to other persons and can spread the infestation easily both by direct skin-to-skin contact and by contamination of items such as their clothing, bedding, and furniture.Nov 2, 2010
