Prayer Requests 6-14-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 101

I will sing of your love and justice;
    to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
I will be careful to lead a blameless life—
    when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs of my house
    with a blameless heart.
I will not look with approval
    on anything that is vile.

I hate what faithless people do;
    I will have no part in it.
The perverse of heart shall be far from me;
    I will have nothing to do with what is evil.

Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret,
    I will put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart,
    I will not tolerate.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
    that they may dwell with me;
the one whose walk is blameless
    will minister to me.

No one who practices deceit
    will dwell in my house;
no one who speaks falsely
    will stand in my presence.

Every morning I will put to silence
    all the wicked in the land;
I will cut off every evildoer
    from the city of the Lord.

  1. I left a prayer request on yesterday’s thread early early this morning. Please pray for our neighbors Dan and Carol…their home is a total loss and they did lose their hunting dog Callie in the fire…she was in the garage where they believe the fire started and they could not get to her….this morning the firemen remain at the scene and the sight is devastating. Paul just took coffee over to them as they stand there in shock…I am at a loss for words

  2. Prayers for peace and healing in our nation in the wake of the shooting outside of DC this morning. Prayers that Rep. Scalise and the others shot recover quickly.

  3. Amen and amen,

    We are in discussions with a pastor who is working toward arranging opportunities for inner city youth who are making a change, to get out to a rural environment and see another part of life for a couple of weeks. Wisdom.

  4. Mumsee, we have a grandson visiting, for the same reason mentioned above. I assure you, the culture shock is greater on the rural side. I have heard so much about ‘what’s popular’ aND pokemon, and oh, so many other things from the YouTube babysitter. Even the mention of reading a book will instantly send him fleeing to the out doors.

  5. Out doors is good. Several of our children take a book out doors with them. We would probably have a zero devices policy for most of the time if not all.

  6. Can I come stay in the zero device zone? 😉
    Mumsee, I wouldn’t want to see you do that alone. Hubby would need to be there, but I will join you in prayer about it.
    There is something about video games and other “things” that is addictive to the young male brain. I will have to email someone a bout it and send it to you.

  7. We told him it would require another adult or two on the premises, but he is talking about sending young adults who are trying to move up in life, making an effort.

  8. Praising & thanking God! The loan has been approved, for the 15 years we had requested. Now we are looking into getting Nightingale’s name on it, especially since she will be paying half of the loan.

    Knowing that we have been planning on eventually putting the house in Nightingale’s name, leaving it to her, I had been uncomfortable with the thought of telling Chickadee about that, fearing she would feel cheated out of her part of the “inheritance”. But Nightingale is the one who is living here, helping out, & planning on taking care of us as we age. AND she figures she will end up supporting Chickadee eventually, too, at the very least providing a home for her.

    But someone who may already feel some resentment towards a family member or two, or who feels that another family (the McKs) accepts her more, that logic could be hard to see.

    Now, with Nightingale helping to pay off this loan, it makes sense that the house would go in her name, & I’m sure Chickadee will see that. (Even so, please say a little prayer that when the time comes for that conversation, she will understand & agree.)

  9. Kizzie, please do not put her name on the house. You accomplish the same thing by leaving it to her in your will and it is much better for her from a tax standpoint. If you put her name on it now, when she sells it, the profit will be based on today’s value. If you leave it to her in your will, it will be based on the market value as of your death. You also do her a disservice by putting her name on the loan. If it’s just you and Lee and it’s unpaid at the time of your death, it gets paid off by your assets. If her name is on it, it becomes her debt.

  10. By the way, if the loan is on the house and it unpaid at your death, you cannot out-and-out leave it to her. If your other assets aren’t sufficient to pay off the loan, then either she’ll have to pay it or it will have to be sold.
    I’m thinking you should get some good financial advice before you make a move on this stuff.

  11. As for leaving her the debt, when the first one of us dies, the remaining one would pay it off with the life insurance.

    One of the reasons we want to put it in her name is for if we ever need to be put in a nursing home, & go on Medicare. If her name is not on the house, she would lose it.

  12. Kizzie, I wonder if setting up a trust to own the house would protect it from the nursing home scenario. It would address the issues Linda raised. I agree with her that getting some good professional advice is in order.

  13. She’s also a young woman with her life to lead. If she remarried and decides to move, she could legally sell the house. In my state, the spouse would own half the house once they wed.

    Im not remembering clearly right now, but there are estate issues as well when you die. If she inherits, she inherits at the “stepped up value,” of what the house is worth– which again, means tax implications.
