Prayer Requests 9-18-18

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the Lord;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
   he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
   Many will see and fear the Lord
    and put their trust in him.

Blessed is the one
    who trusts in the Lord,
   who does not look to the proud,
    to those who turn aside to false gods.
Many, Lord my God,
    are the wonders you have done,
    the things you planned for us.
   None can compare with you;
    were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
    they would be too many to declare.

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire—
    but my ears you have opened—
    burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.
Then I said, “Here I am, I have come—
    it is written about me in the scroll.
I desire to do your will, my God;
    your law is within my heart.”

I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly;
    I do not seal my lips, Lord,
    as you know.
10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
    I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help.
   I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness
    from the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, Lord;
    may your love and faithfulness always protect me.
12 For troubles without number surround me;
    my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
   They are more than the hairs of my head,
    and my heart fails within me.
13 Be pleased to save me, Lord;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

14 May all who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
   may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    be appalled at their own shame.
16 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
   may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”

17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    may the Lord think of me.
   You are my help and my deliverer;
    you are my God, do not delay.

  1. I have a praise this morning. The friend, who recently had to go to the nursing home because of his Alzheimer’s Disease, is now back in his own apartment with his wife. He did not know her at all for a couple of days and could not walk. He is back and walking quite well. Many of us, including his wife, wondered if he would ever leave the nursing home again. It is such a blessing for him, his wife and so many others to see him out and about again.

  2. Please be in prayer for the people of PNG. There is a polio outbreak here. They told us a month or so ago and now it is spreading. Polio was declared eradicated in 2000 so they quit the immunizations. It is almost impossible to vaccinte folks in remote villages and do they even have enough dosages anywhere. I will be going in for a booster and no one may return without a booster. Also the Asia Pacific Economic Council is meeting here with folks already arriving ahead of the summit in November.
