Prayer Requests 8-10-17

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 4

Answer me when I call to you,
    my righteous God.
    Give me relief from my distress;
    have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
    the Lord hears when I call to him.

Tremble and do not sin;
    when you are on your beds,
    search your hearts and be silent.
Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
    and trust in the Lord.

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
    Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when their grain and new wine abound.

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,
    make me dwell in safety.

  1. One of our staff posted this on Facebook last night:

    “Tonight I was reminded of why we do camp. I’ve gotten to know one of the boys in my skills this week through the tiniest glimpses that he shares of his life with me and through what God is showing me about him. Some might consider him to be one of those hard to love kids…
    Last night he sat by me at campfire and although he kept saying he was going to leave and go to bed, he ended up sitting there and even somewhat participated in the songs.
    Tonight though, he stayed behind after chapel for the reflective time with his head bowed and eyes wet and although he didn’t share what he was thinking with me, he let me pray for him. I have never felt more honoured and more humbled. We only get to see these kids for a week. A week. And somehow in that time it’s possible to look past the exterior and know them deeply and love them in such a real way. I realized tonight that at camp, you can be the you that you were created to be and one day when you decide that one week isn’t long enough to be that version of you, you allow yourself to be you in your everyday life.
    I don’t know what God is doing in his heart right now, but I’m feeling the ripple effects and thought I’d ask…if you’re someone who prays, could you please pray for him? And for camps everywhere who are loving and encouraging young people – even those who may be considered “hard to love” – this summer? Thanks friends 💕😊

    Thank you for praying for this boy and for Camp Kadesh – this is why I do camp.

  2. Isn’t it wonderful that we are allowed to know God, Who knows the hurts and injuries and joys and hopes of each individual, and knows best how to heal them? All we need do is bring them to Him in our prayers and let Him do the fixing. Sometimes He even uses us!

  3. Prayer for Donna.

    And prayer here for wisdom. I drug tested sixteen year old son the other day, and he showed positive for prescription drug use. His “friend” takes antianxiety meds.

  4. The names have been released in the fatal accident near us on Tuesday. I didn’t know anyone involved, but the deceased was a 28-year-old woman (front-seat passenger in the vehicle that was struck by the guy in the wrong lane). Her six-year-old daughter, critically injured, is without a mommy. Not sure if she’s got a daddy present in her life, either — the driver of their car, also critically injured, is a 26-year-old man with a different last name, and the girl was only identified as the daughter of the woman.

    My heart just breaks for that little girl. Please pray for her and the families of those involved.

  5. Hubby got a call from his oncologist’s office, saying that his recent PSA test showed that it has gotten very high again, & he needs to have another CT scan & MRI soon (or maybe one of those is supposed to be a bone scan, I forget). They are scheduled for August 23.

    The rise of the PSA is especially worrying since it happened even while he’s been on the hormone treatment.

    The oncologist has suspected that although the previous MRIs & bone scans & such have not revealed any metastasized cancer, the fact that his PSA has gotten so high a few times can indicate that the cancer has been “hiding”.

    I guess I don’t have to tell you how scary this is. Please pray for healing, yes, but also for peace, wisdom, & strength for both of us. And whatever else you might think is helpful. Thank you, & God bless.
