Prayer Requests 8-28-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
    The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
    The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
    The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
    they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
    may they not rule over me.
    Then I will be blameless,
    innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
    be pleasing in your sight,
    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

  1. Hubby experienced another anxiety attack (at least, that what he thinks it is). He described a fiery burning in his chest, that lasted close to an hour, longer than it ever has before. This happens when he is feeling particularly anxious about something, usually at work.

    He is going to call our doctor this morning to make an appointment to talk about it. He will also be calling the oncologist about the results of last week’s tests.

  2. Prayers, Kizzie.

    Three travel-related prayer requests:

    For East Coast sister and family as they leave the Midwest this morning to drive back home.

    For hubby, sons and me as we travel to visit eldest daughter in the hospital. (Six-hour round trip.)

    For three youngest daughters, as they return today from a sleepover at out-of-state cousin’s. Not a long distance, but if they have car trouble, hubby won’t be in an area to help them, as we are traveling in the opposite direction today.

    Prayers, too, of course, for ill daughter. Still no answers, but needs morphine every 2-3 hours.

    Thank you.

  3. The Lord is good; but you all know that.

    I cried when Stargazer drove off this morning (in my car, so I’ll be seeing him soon to retrieve it!), came inside and busied myself with stripping down the room he’s lived in for the last two years.

    A few minutes ago, I stopped to check my email and there was an invitation to be interviewed by Eric Metaxas–possibly this morning.

    That’s my dream interview. I’m feeling so blessed to have been given both highs and lows within an hour or so of each other; a reminder that letting go often means opening up to something else.

    If I don’t speak with him in a couple hours it will be later this week. Please pray for clarity, that I speak slowly and that God is glorified in Biddy’s story.

  4. Oncologist’s office said that the doc will discuss the results of the tests at Hubby’s appointment on Wednesday.

    Isn’t it usually true that that sort of thing really means they found something but don’t want to discuss it over the phone? Trying not to imagine bad things, but it’s hard.

    (He has an appointment with our primary care doctor tomorrow afternoon to discuss the other matter.)

  5. If there are decisions you must make or a longer explanation, they might want you to come into the office.

    The other sounds somewhat like GERD. Hope he gets some good answers. Stress is very hard on the body. We cannot avoid it, of course, in this life—only bring it to God.

  6. Go get ’em Michelle. 🙂

    If the interview is for today’s radio show, there’s a link next to the dog on his page that will let folks listen to it on their computer. He’s live between 2-4 weekdays.

    If not we’ll have to get Michelle to let us know when it airs.

  7. I understand what Mumsee & Kathaleena have said, but I still think that if the results were clear, he’d be told over the phone. That’s what they’ve done the last times he had those tests.


  8. Immediate family home (except 2nd Arrow, still hospitalized with campylobacter infection). I will report more tomorrow — too tired now.

    Haven’t heard if sis and family have gotten back home. My guess is they’re probably rolling in about now, if they left around the time they planned, and had uneventful travels.

    Thank you for the prayers. The day was a blessing in some ways, and difficult in others, including younger son passing out (or nearly so — his older brother mostly caught him, though they both ended up on the floor for a moment) in a restaurant a couple hours from home when we stopped for supper tonight. He recovered quickly, and seems fine.
