Prayer Requests 9-17-18

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 39

I said, “I will watch my ways
    and keep my tongue from sin;
   I will put a muzzle on my mouth
    while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
    not even saying anything good.
   But my anguish increased;
 my heart grew hot within me.
   While I meditated, the fire burned;
    then I spoke with my tongue:

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
    and the number of my days;
    let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
   Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth
    without knowing whose it will finally be.

“But now, Lord, what do I look for?
    My hope is in you.
Save me from all my transgressions;
    do not make me the scorn of fools.
I was silent; I would not open my mouth,
    for you are the one who has done this.
10 Remove your scourge from me;
    I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
11 When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin,
    you consume their wealth like a moth—
    surely everyone is but a breath.

12 “Hear my prayer, Lord,
    listen to my cry for help;
    do not be deaf to my weeping.
   I dwell with you as a foreigner,
    a stranger, as all my ancestors were.
13 Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again
    before I depart and am no more.”

  1. 3 days late. We really could use this delivery soon. A little concerned about Ang. With her doctor on maternity leave, though willing to come in for delivery, she feels like she’s flying solo. She hasn’t even visited the hospital–which is new since her last child was born.

  2. Kind of a PTS, michelle. The older we get and more we go through can do that. I blame my thyroid sometimes (and that may be so). Nevertheless, prayers for mom, baby and you.

  3. So she is choosing not to induce this one? That’s a good decision, if she can follow through with it.

    Our grandbaby was a first baby (usually late) and moving toward being two weeks late. In fact, the plan was to induce her later that day (though somehow nobody told us that!) but fortunately she came without a need for that. Induction can make a harder labor and increase the risk of a C-section.

  4. Exactly, Cheryl. There were health reasons for the inductions. She’s looking forward to going into a natural labor, though it’s complicated by the fact her OB may be in labor herself.

    I met three of the delivery docs at delivery, typical for military births, but recognize that’s not ideal.


  5. I was shocked to learn that daughter actually knew her doc and he planned to be at the delivery even on his days off. Nice guy and the same one for the second. Amazing how things work in the real world as opposed to that other life. Fourth child was not even born in the same hospital I had been going to, instead, he was born in a German hospital. I did not know anybody but my husband. But it worked.
