Prayer Requests 3-15-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 34:1-8

I will extol the Lord at all times;
    his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
    let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
    let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

  1. Today is the day they are going to shoot something into Mr. P’s back, to see if it gives him relief. I am more patience with him today. I know he is in constant pain. I was feeling selfish and put out the other day. I am frustrated for both of us. I know he wants to do things with me, and I know HE wants to go and do. It just does a little something when I see him give up and tell me to go by myself. I have been there and done that in a previous life and it didn’t turn out well. Of course I was a different person then too.

  2. For example, R (my friend L’s) husband posted on FB looking for some people to go with him to the Arts Show this weekend. Mr. P suggested I go with him. It makes me extremely uncomfortable. I love R, like a brother. I am married and he is recently a widower, I just don’t think it would look good. He and I would know there is no more to it than just attending an event with the other person, but others might see it differently. I also know that I am allowing what others may think to govern my actions, but still, it isn’t something I want to do.

  3. You sound very wise, Kim, and your husband is very trusting. Prayers for you both.

    I think it is so difficult to be patient when you are not the one suffering the actual pain. Plus, we know all the times we plow through and expect it of others when they, perhaps, cannot do it. Just gives us another reason for prayer and more prayer.

  4. Friends of ours, a dear Christian husband and wife, were going through a difficult time in taking care of her mother, who had suffered a stroke, and was wheelchair-bound for the rest of her life. He talked honestly about how there comes a time when it seems as if we run out of compassion in these situations that go on and on. We grow weary and impatient.

    Of course, as Kathaleena says, that, too, is another reason for prayer and more prayer. Try to be honest but gentle with yourself. The people who care for the people who suffer also have their own degree of suffering to endure.

  5. Prayers, please, for things to go better in our office. The phones have not worked properly for most of the season. We’ve had printer problems, and now we have other computer issues. We continue to be short handed. And I hurt my wrist reaching for something on a high shelf at Publix so I was at ER two mornings ago before 8 a.m. Nothing is broken, but it is sprained and a bit painful. I am using an Ace bandage which actually gives enough support to help some. I had not used one before. Thank you for praying.

  6. I posted this on the news thread but it belongs here too.

    A pedestrian bridge has collapsed in Florida, trapping half a dozen cars and killing several people. It’s still unfolding, and they are digging more people out. The bridge was installed over the highway in a single morning—Saturday morning. Fortunately it was not open to pedestrians, but it looks like a nightmare. Prayers for the victims.
