Prayer Requests 4-11-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 62:1-8

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

How long will you assault me?
    Would all of you throw me down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?
Surely they intend to topple me
    from my lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
   With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God;
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

  1. I don’t know if this rates a prayer request, but I’ll put it here anyway. . .

    Mr X has been texting me, initially trying to find out when he can take The Boy. He was supposed to take him yesterday after school, and take him to Lacrosse practice. When that was cancelled, he said he wouldn’t bother picking him up, since the weather wasn’t good for playing outside. (It wasn’t raining anymore at that time, and would have been fine. But even if it had been, they could have done something indoors, as they have been all winter.)

    This morning, he was trying to make plans for today or some other day. With Nightingale having the next couple evenings off, and The Boy having appointments today and tomorrow, she says Friday is good, and that works out for him having his weekend overnight, too, since they are leaving for vacation on Sunday. (He then claimed that his family had some plans on Sunday that he wanted to include The Boy in, but nothing had been said about that previously.)

    Now he is claiming that he should be advised of all The Boy’s appointments and that she shouldn’t take him on vacation without telling him when and where they are going. (He may have a point on that last one, but with the protective order against him, maybe not. Btw, an order of protection is stricter than a restraining order.)

    He also claimed that his mom has been trying to contact Nightingale and that she has been ignoring her. (The truth is that his mom had not been replying to Nightingale’s texts last week, and she hasn’t heard from her at all this week.) He ended his last text (of several) saying that he was going to “take advantage of [his] legal rights today.” That sounds an alarm in me.

    Nightingale will be picking up The Boy from school today. Praying there will be no drama with Mr X. Thank you.

  2. Might want to notify the police on that, and advise them that your daughter will be picking up son and it is a time of concern. They might put a patrol guy there.

  3. Mumsee – I just saw your suggestion now, but Nightingale has already gone to pick him up.

    Earlier I asked her if we should alert the police to the texts, since they were verging on harassment, but she said they didn’t yet hit harassment level. She’s been through this before with the police. They’ve said his words have to be overtly harassing or threatening for them to do anything. Mr X is quite cunning, skirting the edges of what is legal without letting himself go too far over the line.

  4. Please pray for my son, the father of the stillborn baby. I’m not sure if I told you he fainted during the epidural and then had to be checked out in the ER. His head hurts, leg and ankle were twisted and he’ll be off work the rest of the week–he works for an hourly wage.

    It’s just all so very sad and this compounds everything. 😦

  5. Glad they are home safe. Nightingale has to consult with a lawyer to know exactly what she must let X know. I would think not much concerning whereabouts with an order of protection. There is a reason for a go between.

    So sorry, Michelle, for even more stress. Prayers for all.

  6. Oh, Michelle. How awful for all of you. Will you have some way to commemorate Baby Girl?

    Kizzie, I would think that documenting everything he is doing would be a good thing. It sounds as though he is about to go off the rails again.
    A narcissist cannot stand not to have attention.

  7. Requesting prayers for my daughter, April. She is a paramedic and ran on a preteen suicide. She worked him all the way to the hospital, but he died. Everyone is devastated. They all need prayers.

  8. I’m so sorry, rkessler, can’t imagine how much pain he was in — but also what grief (and sense of guilt, which is natural) the family is left to process.
