Prayer Requests 4-26-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 77:1-12

I cried out to God for help;
    I cried out to God to hear me.
When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
    at night I stretched out untiring hands,
    and I would not be comforted.

I remembered you, God, and I groaned;
    I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.
You kept my eyes from closing;
    I was too troubled to speak.
I thought about the former days,
    the years of long ago;
I remembered my songs in the night.
    My heart meditated and my spirit asked:

“Will the Lord reject forever?
    Will he never show his favor again?
Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
    Has his promise failed for all time?
Has God forgotten to be merciful?
    Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”

10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
    the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

  1. I am more stressed out at work than I’ve been in years. We’ve planned for months for a 2 1/2 week out-of-town vacation starting next week. From a work standpoint it could hardly have come at a worse time. It seems every time I turn around something else needs my attention that nobody else knows how to address, and the projects that I “absolutely must” complete before we go next week aren’t getting anywhere because of all the interruptions.

    We’re chronically understaffed and the issues my boss is dealing with are overwhelming. She’s trying her best to filter what comes to me, but there’s just too much for our team.

    A lot of minor issues are coming up at home, too, requiring extra attention and time I don’t have.

    When I get this stressed out I tend to lose my temper and take out my anxiety on other people. All week I’ve felt close to exploding.

    So my main request for prayer is that I keep calm, and secondly that I can get all this work done.

  2. You have my sympathies, Kevin. My husband is going through the same thing right now and it’s eating him up. His company, that filed chapter 11 in February, is consolidating two manufacturing plants for which he and one other person support all of the I.T. The equipment is being moved on its own schedule and the supporting applications have to be ready when it goes.
    All of that to say that I know what you are going through and am so sorry for you.
