Prayer Requests 8-30-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 21

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
    How great is his joy in the victories you give!

You have granted him his heart’s desire
    and have not withheld the request of his lips.
You came to greet him with rich blessings
    and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—
    length of days, for ever and ever.
Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
    you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
Surely you have granted him unending blessings
    and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord;
    through the unfailing love of the Most High
    he will not be shaken.

Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies;
    your right hand will seize your foes.
When you appear for battle,
    you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
    and his fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
    their posterity from mankind.
11 Though they plot evil against you
    and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
12 You will make them turn their backs
    when you aim at them with drawn bow.

13 Be exalted in your strength, Lord;
    we will sing and praise your might.

  1. Thank you for all your prayers.

    Well, the news is not too good, but it’s not too bad, either. There is a tumor growing on his prostate, & a tiny “something” on one of his ribs, which could be from an old injury (not that he could remember any injury there) or it could be the metastasized cancer.

    So the doctor has changed the medication he is on to something stronger (& he will continue with the Lupron shots every few months), & he needs to have another bone scan in three months to check on that spot. He also needs to have blood work done more frequently.

    The doctor did not seem too concerned, which made me feel better about it. He said it is not time to worry yet.

    After the appointment, we had an early romantic dinner at Costco 😉 after having done a little shopping there. Then we went to the ice cream place for some very delicious soft-serve. (I had vanilla.)

  2. He’s feeling fairly upbeat, not too worried. We realize that unless God intervenes, this will eventually lead to his death (unless something else gets him in the meantime), but that doesn’t seem to be on the horizon for the near future.

    He is concerned about the possible side effects of the new med, which could exacerbate the problem with his blood pressure. We are praying that he will not experience any of those side effects. And of course, we are praying that God will intervene, & either heal him or keep the cancer at bay for many more years.

    We especially pray that Hubby will be around as Little Guy grows up, as he is the only godly, believing man in that little boy’s life.

    We have lived the past 12 years with this sort of over our heads, but it was doing so much better until a couple years ago or so. He was diagnosed at 50 with already a very high PSA, & prostate cancer in one that young tends to be a more aggressive cancer than when it crops up in older men. Although we are asking for more years, we are thankful for the ones we’ve had.

  3. We are both also praying to have a deeper trust in God, & His peace in our hearts, no matter what happens. And that He would be glorified through this.

  4. Karen I got a forward from you in my email. I am assuming it is not actually from you, unless you tell me otherwise.

    I still remember the smart aleck kid in 3rd, 4th (?) grade who walked in from recesses bragging that HE could spell Mississippi. We were all ears and very impressed as he rattled it off in that now well known cadance we all learned. 🙂
