Prayer Requests 8-2-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord.

   Praise the Lord, my soul.

I will praise the Lord all my life;
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
    in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
    on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose hope is in the Lord their God.

He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them—
    he remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
    and gives food to the hungry.
   The Lord sets prisoners free,
 the Lord gives sight to the blind,
   the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
    the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner
    and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
    but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.

10 The Lord reigns forever,
    your God, O Zion, for all generations.

   Praise the Lord.

  1. Renee says that Fabi is currently in the planning stage of committing suicide, and she has been trying to talk him out of it. (In case I didn’t make it clear yesterday, this is via Facebook, but they’ve been friends for nine years.) He has attempted suicide before.

  2. Carol’s on an antibiotic IV in the hospital again, pray for quick resolution to the infection.

    I am still battling this chest cold after 2 or 3+(?) weeks or so, it’s now more of a dry, racking cough but it’s especially bothersome at night. And now there’s also some head & sinus congestion to go with it. I’m feeling really drained and tired, I can’t seem to get it out of my system.

    We’ve had an unusually warm July.

  3. Carol remains in the hospital of course, she’ll be there for at least I week based on her past stays to get rid of these infections.

    She is almost demanding that I come see her Saturday and bring her a Big Mac and Shake. Over and over she’s telling me. I doubt she should be having that kind of food, but she’s calling and asking/reminding/telling me daily now about the food order. I asked her if she really thinks they’ll say it’s ok for her to eat all that and she said “Oh, yes, they said it’s fine.” Um, you asked them? Well, no, but it’s ok, really.

    A/ I still have this cough & maybe shouldn’t even be going into a hospital (though after having this for so long I doubt I’m contagious, but i don’t really know); and B/ no way should she be having that kind of heavy junk food.

    I get so frustrated with her sometimes, she’s obsessed with & driven by her appetites and becomes just so nagging and demanding about it. It wears one down. She really is like a 6-year-old. Me, me, me, what I want, bring me-bring me-bring me this bring-me that.
