Prayer Requests 8-21-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 13

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
    and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

Look on me and answer, Lord my God.
    Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
    and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your unfailing love;
    my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing the Lord’s praise,
    for he has been good to me.

  1. Not worrying about my lack of sleep per The Sleep Solution book, has actually convinced my brain it doesn’t need to sleep at all. I’ve been awake since midnight, after snoozing a good solid two hours. It’s 4:30 here now.

    A NP friend suggested some supplements I’ll purchase today. I can accept I may only need 5-6 hours of sleep to function, sort-of, but I’d like to at least get some of that number. It’s 4:30 here. I’m going to try going back to bed now. I’ve slept well only two nights in the last two weeks.

    But I’m functioning my brain argues. I don’t care. I’m tired.

  2. A few weeks ago, I asked prayer for Karen, another lady with Moebius. She was due to have surgery tomorrow, & was very nervous about the anesthetist’s insistence that she needed to be awake to be intubated.

    Since then, Karen has been presented with research on this by another lady in the Moebius community, & found that there is no reason for that. She wrote, “I am still not prepared to put my life in the hands of a man who couldn’t do the research himself.” So the surgery has been postponed.

    She is going to start the process over, now armed with the research. Thanks for any prayers that were offered for her.

  3. Michelle – I feel so sorry about your lack of sleep. I can somewhat commiserate with you in that this month, most days, I’ve had to get up earlier than I am used to, but my body won’t “get with the program” & get to sleep earlier. And then there are usually nights when I can’t get to sleep for a long while anyway.

    It sounds like I am getting more sleep than you are, though. So I figure if I am feeling so worn out, you must be even more so.

    A couple days ago, in my tired irritableness, I told my husband to shut up. !!! I immediately felt horrible about that, & apologized. (In my defense, Hubby tends to interrupt me an awful lot, & I was just trying to to get my story out. But still. . .)

  4. Did you know that North Korea has an empty village named the Peace Village close to the DMZ? Or that cutting down trees in Siberia has allowed the permafrost to melt cause a chasm in the earth that allowing methane gas to escape? They locals think it is the gateway to hell.
    I had a question from Chas once from watching/listening to Nasa’s Unexplained Files, it was about a space suit they found in a closet but now I can’t remember the details to ask.
    All this knowledge and nothing to do with it!

  5. I have no problem getting to sleep. I have a problem with waking up in the wee hours and going back to sleep. I know my dad had the same problem and I don’t worry about it much anymore.

    Please pray for a teen named, Carmen, who is 16 and foolishly ran off with a boyfriend, who has drug issues. They have been gone a week and Carmen’s mother is frantic. She is desperately trying to find her.

  6. Prayers also for my SIL who must take the diversity training for LGBTQ for teachers. This is a very pro- program by an advocate. Pray for wisdom for him and all the Christian teachers who are forced to take these programs and work in this system.

  8. Chas, I was going to ask you about it. They found an astronauts bulky gear in a closet at Nasa. It had the number 6 or 7 on it and no one could figure out why it was in that closet. I think maybe someone was supposed to get to go up and then couldn’t and they found this was his suit. The closet had been blocked off somehow for a number of years.
    Details are sketchy now for me.
