Prayer Requests 9-7-17

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
    it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
    though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
    that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
    to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
    he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
    at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
    Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. Please be in prayer for our staffing needs at the Primary school in Ukarumpa. There are needs for the rest of this year as some are leaving over the Christmas break. We also need four teachers for the next school year beginning in July. Now is the time for them to begin the process.
    Prayers for me as I work on a newsletter and follow the Lord’s leading in this time as the Fall schedule begins next week. I am waiting to see how He will meet my support needs.
    I meet with our Missions committee for an hour this Sunday.

  2. Praying.

    I am sad to see most of the adopted children, if not all, following in the footsteps of their bio parents. Not unexpected and we did show them an alternative but it is sad just the same. On a positive note, they have been exposed to the Truth and they have gotten far beyond previous generations in education. But character is fairly ingrained by age three.

    So, I am sad today and would appreciate prayers that I would take my eyes of my self and my children and look into the Face of God, as much as we are able from here.

    And prayer for nineteen year old as he continues the drive east with a truck driving friend of a relative to go meet with his bio mom for a few weeks.

  3. Here I am, Kim!

    Hubby is finally getting out. No more blood in the urine, although he is having some spasms (I guess from having the catheter in for so long). They gave him something to help with those. Nightingale will get out of work about an hour early (around 2) & go to pick him up.

    Now what is on his mind is this new, stronger med (Zytiga) he will start taking for the prostate cancer. The doc’s office has to educate him about it, with a phone call from the lady at the office. (He was supposed to have an appointment with her for that. I don’t know if he still will or if he already missed it or what’s up with that.)

    He’s been reading the possible side effects, & they concern him, although he knows they have to list every little thing that might happen.

    From what he’s been reading on it, he needs to be careful about not getting infections or picking up viruses. Well, we have a six year old grandson picking up viruses from school, & I always get what he gets. Prayers for Hubby’s immune system to remain strong, please.

    He will be going back to work on Monday, & they may have someone ride along with him to help him out.

    Again, thank you all for your prayers, concern, & love. I love you all!

  4. Me, too but it was something I was warned about by many people. All we could do was give them a chance. They will either remember it or they won’t. And pray for them. Several on here have adopted children and have experienced the same thing.

  5. I’m sorry, too, mumsee.

    Thanks for the update Kizzie.

    The photographer at work is being let go, but was given a choice to take belated buyout or layoff — advantage of layoff is he would still get a severance package and he could then collect unemployment.

    But the mood is pretty ‘down’ here today.

  6. Hubby finally got home around 5:30. He is feeling achy, overwhelmed, & exhausted from not being able to get a decent night’s sleep while in the hospital. He has new heart meds he has to learn about, a new prostate cancer med on its way (prescribed shortly before all this), & he needs to follow up with his cardiologist & his oncologist, & who knows who else. He was also told to stop taking the arthritis med which helped him to function at work.

  7. Prayers for Lee and the rest of the family!

    We have a praise. Went to the ophthalmologist and no detected retina. He said the symptoms sounded like it might have torn a bit, but had healed. I so happy. I feel like a weight is off my back.

  8. RKessler, I think you were saying “detached.” (I don’t note that to correct you, but to clarify for anyone who might find that unclear.) Praise the Lord on that one!
