Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2017-Week 8

It’s getting to be crunch time. Most teams have played half their games. Many are out of contention for anything but bragging rights in a rivalry game. The Top 10 teams keep losing, so the playoff picture looks interesting. And we have had only one repeat winner.

So without any further ado, here are your choices for Week 8. Mumsee picked the tie breaker since she won last time. Or should I say, since Idaho Mike won for her. Send in those entries before 9:30PM EDT Friday, 10/20/17.

  1. #10 Oklahoma State @ Texas

  2. Purdue @ Rutgers

  3. Louisville @ Florida State

  4. Idaho @ Mizzou (Hint: Both teams are really bad this year.)

  5. Temple @ Army

  6. Pitt @ Duke

  7. #20 Central Florida @ Navy*

  8. #11 Southern Cal @ Notre Dame (This is the only big showdown this week. Should be exciting to watch.)

  9. Pillow Fight: BYU @ East Carolina (Both teams have records of 1-6)

10. Tie Breaker – Pick the winner and the score: Air Force @ Nevada

Prayer Requests 10-18-17

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajisuun and The Gambia.

Anyone else?

Psalm 67

May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face shine on us—
so that your ways may be known on earth,
    your salvation among all nations.

May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.
May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you rule the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations of the earth.
May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.

The land yields its harvest;
    God, our God, blesses us.
May God bless us still,
    so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 66

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
 Sing the glory of his name;
    make his praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
    So great is your power
    that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
    they sing praise to you,
    they sing the praises of your name.”

Come and see what God has done,
    his awesome deeds for mankind!
He turned the sea into dry land,
    they passed through the waters on foot—
    come, let us rejoice in him.
He rules forever by his power,
    his eyes watch the nations—
    let not the rebellious rise up against him.

Praise our God, all peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard;
he has preserved our lives
    and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
    you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
    and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and water,
    but you brought us to a place of abundance.

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
    and fulfill my vows to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
    and an offering of rams;
    I will offer bulls and goats.

16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
    let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
    his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
    and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
    who has not rejected my prayer
    or withheld his love from me!
