Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2018 Week 8

The number eight. The Beatles had a popular song called “Eight Days a Week”. “Eight is Enough” was a popular TV show years ago. Eight wins in a college football season is pretty good. But here at Pickled Pigskins we can’t seem to get to that number correct. Only three of us have been able to get 8 or more correct out of ten games. And most weeks 6 gets a win, including Idaho Mike last week. Let’s see if we can improve. In order to help us out, I’ve included current overall and conference records for each team.

Have at it. Just get it done by NOON EDT Saturday.

 1.  #6 Michigan (6-1, 4-0 B1G) @ #24 Michigan State 4-2, 2-1 B1G)

 2.  Auburn ( 4-3, 1-3 SEC) @ Ole Miss (5-2, 1-2 SEC)

 3.  Miami-Ohio (3-4) @ Army (4-2)

Prayer Requests 10-18-18

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 70

Hasten, O God, to save me;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

May those who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
   may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
    turn back because of their shame.
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!”

But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    come quickly to me, O God.
   You are my help and my deliverer;
    Lord, do not delay.

Prayer Requests 10-17-18

Psalm 69:1-15

Save me, O God,
    for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths,
    where there is no foothold.
   I have come into the deep waters;
    the floods engulf me.
I am worn out calling for help;
    my throat is parched.
   My eyes fail,
    looking for my God.
Those who hate me without reason
    outnumber the hairs of my head;
   many are my enemies without cause,
    those who seek to destroy me.
   I am forced to restore
    what I did not steal.

You, God, know my folly;
    my guilt is not hidden from you.

Lord, the Lord Almighty,
    may those who hope in you
    not be disgraced because of me;
   God of Israel,
    may those who seek you
    not be put to shame because of me.
For I endure scorn for your sake,
    and shame covers my face.
I am a foreigner to my own family,
    a stranger to my own mother’s children;
for zeal for your house consumes me,
    and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
10 When I weep and fast,
    I must endure scorn;
11 when I put on sackcloth,
    people make sport of me.
12 Those who sit at the gate mock me,
    and I am the song of the drunkards.

13 But I pray to you, Lord,
    in the time of your favor;
   in your great love, O God,
    answer me with your sure salvation.
14 Rescue me from the mire,
    do not let me sink;
   deliver me from those who hate me,
    from the deep waters.
15 Do not let the floodwaters engulf me
    or the depths swallow me up
    or the pit close its mouth over me.
