Prayer Requests 2-16-18

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 10:1-12

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
   His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
   He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.

  1. Thank you for the encouraging words last night.

    I do know that most people, maybe all, have those kinds of thoughts at times. I have certainly had them enough times in the past. It seemed, though, at least for a while after the first couple weeks following Hubby’s death, that I was past that kind of thing. But it turns out that those waves of grief we’ve talked about are sometimes much higher, and hit harder, than we’d expected, especially as time has passed and we think it should be getting easier.

    Michelle’s recent mention of the deeper depth of grieving that can come along around the four month mark has helped me understand that I am still within “normal” for what I am experiencing. Knowing that helps me to not get down on myself or feel like I am too weak.

    God bless you all.
