Prayer Requests 3-13-18

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 32

Blessed is the one
    whose transgressions are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the one
    whose sin the Lord does not count against them
    and in whose spirit is no deceit.

When I kept silent,
    my bones wasted away
    through my groaning all day long.
For day and night
    your hand was heavy on me;
   my strength was sapped
    as in the heat of summer.

Then I acknowledged my sin to you
    and did not cover up my iniquity.
   I said, “I will confess
    my transgressions to the Lord.”
   And you forgave
    the guilt of my sin.

Therefore let all the faithful pray to you
    while you may be found;
   surely the rising of the mighty waters
    will not reach them.
You are my hiding place;
    you will protect me from trouble
    and surround me with songs of deliverance.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
Do not be like the horse or the mule,
    which have no understanding
   but must be controlled by bit and bridle
    or they will not come to you.
10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
    but the Lord’s unfailing love
    surrounds the one who trusts in him.

11 Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
    sing, all you who are upright in heart!

  1. Another medevac scheduled for in the morning. This will be the fourth in two weeks. The last one, my friend, was a doctor and the clinic manager. Pray for our clinic. They are wonderful, but I’m sure that they are getting tired.

  2. Carol goes in for a leg ultrasound at Cedar Sinai today (circulation issues & edema), part of a follow-up test ordered after one of her recent doctor appointments.

  3. Prayer for husband as he tries to help eleven year old with math. Eleven can do a lot of math but sometimes it is like there is nothing there at all. We are trying to get money figured out, which we have been working on for years and that is just not something he grasps at all.

  4. Mumsee, when I homeschooled my girls, there were tears over math every day. My boy has it in his brain already, can just look at the problem and tell you the answer. I feel your pain, and will keep them in prayer.

  5. When I went back to college and took intermediate alegbra, I could make 100 on every homework assignment. When I would open an exam, it was as though I had never seen the material before. I think my brain saw it as a “view only” page and never filed any of it.


  6. I used to teach math. I am trying to remember about the “Hairs” on the top of each coins head. I think I penny was bald, a nickle had one hair, a dime two, and a quarter five. You memorize a penny is 1, then you can’t by fives the hairs on the top of the head.
    Money and Time are the two hardest units to teach.
    Can you have him count out 100 pennies to make a dollar
    20 nickles, 10 dimes, 4 quarters, then have him make amounts with different coins counting them out to you.
    Oh and he should put coins in stacks of 5 to make a dollar, then 2 nickles in 20 stacks, all the way through, then dimes, then 4 quarters.
    There is something about using your hands and physically counting the money

  7. We do a lot of the physical. We have a jar of coins and bills for practice. I had him lay out the different denominations in different tiles (all verbally explained, no physical hints, and told him he could not read the labels to see how he could do). He got all of them in the correct tiles except the dimes and nickles were reversed. Then I told him to put them in stacks of dollars and he did that without any problem. But I believe what he had done was memorize how many of each coin was in the coin jar (and there were quite a few of each) so he could just glance and tell which was which. If he is given a random handful of coins, he cannot tell. He is absolutely amazing to me.
