Prayer Requests 11-24-18

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 107:1-9

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
those he gathered from the lands,
    from east and west, from north and south.

Some wandered in desert wastelands,
    finding no way to a city where they could settle.
They were hungry and thirsty,
    and their lives ebbed away.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way
    to a city where they could settle.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
for he satisfies the thirsty
    and fills the hungry with good things.

  1. A lot of blessings came from the day yesterday with our extended family Thanksgiving; yet all it took for me was one thing after the gathering that ruined the memory of the day. An old/new hurt with family. I cried a lot of the night last night, and sleep evades me tonight, too, as I cry into my pillow a second night.

    Why does only one thing set me off, when there’s a sea of good all around it? I don’t think the problem that caused the hurt is ever going to change. Pray that I will change my attitude as I deal with the ongoing reality.

  2. Take every thought captive, and if you can’t, ask Him to do it for you. He will. Praying with you that the eyes of your heart will be opened to His love and care and provision.

  3. Oh, and if you do ask Him, if you are like me, you will have to continue to ask Him a million times as you keep wrestling them back to dwell on until gradually, you suddenly notice that He did and joy is yours.

  4. Husband made it to Montana but is now broken down on the side of the road. He has no trailer lights and has to wait until light to get to a mechanic facility. He was hoping to hurry across and beat the big snowstorm coming in to the mountains.

  5. Mumsee, I’m praying with you.
    But you mentioned a couple of days ago that he was 700 miles away.
    That’s ten hours at 70 mph. Nobody can do that.
    But side of the road is worse.
    I hope he can get it fixed soon.

  6. Family holidays can bring out the best and the worst.

    I’ve got a prayer request that doesn’t concern me–but the Lord knows it and I pray He can work a thaw in a relationship today. Thanks.

  7. Amen, Michelle.

    Chas, He had to drive seven hundred miles each day for three days to get back. They are allowed to drive eleven hours so it has been tight. Then he has to drive down to Boise, another six hours or so. Good thing he likes to drive!

  8. Well, he made it to Missoula and has two more passes to clear. He has enough time left on his clock to cross one of them, leaving the second for morning.

  9. I’ve had something on my side/upper back that medical personnel identified as a seborrheic keratosis, explained as harmless. It has grown slowly over the years, gotten darker, and itchy, which I was told was all normal, no reason to do anything with it.

    The last few weeks it’s gotten itchier still, and tonight I discovered it’s separating from my skin and bleeding. Internet says it should be removed when/if it starts to bleed.

    I wish I hadn’t been told nothing needed to be done with it, because now it’s hard to distinguish from skin cancer — partly black, and bleeding, and will probably need to be biopsied, even though they say keratoses like this don’t grow into cancer. (There have been a couple of minor cases of skin cancer in two of my blood relatives, and the medical staff knew that. How much simpler it would have been to have taken that off much earlier. I’ve had moles removed before because of my skin cancer family history, but this one I didn’t demand to have removed because they assured me it would be fine to leave it. Who wants to spend money on an unnecessary procedure? Not me.)

    Bad advice I shouldn’t have listened to. I’m more ticked off than worried, but would appreciate prayers again. Thanks.

  10. And so it continues. He decided not to do the passes last night as he would have run out of time part way down, and this morning the lights don’t work again. He will quite likely be stopped there until tomorrow so won’t make the infusion in Boise tomorrow morning. God knows what He is doing.

  11. Prayers for a recent widow in our church. Today was the first day she was back at church following her husband’s death earlier this month. She was sitting in a chair outside the sanctuary as late service was starting, crying profusely and unable to go into the sanctuary where her husband’s funeral had been.

    Her name is Karen. Thanks.

  12. Though praying for the early flight, whatever it was, I am praising for the earth’s groaning for the coming of the King at the end of the Messiah sing over there. It has blessed me all day!
