Prayer Requests 12-15-18

Anyone have something to share?

Luke 1:39-56

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth.41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Mary’s Song

46 And Mary said:

    “My soul glorifies the Lord
47  and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
    of the humble state of his servant.
    From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49  for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
    holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.”

56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.

  1. For those who may have missed it, here is a prayer request I shared kinda late last night:

    This is prayer request if for Madison, the little six year old daughter of friends of ours, who has Down Syndrome. Her parents got an update from the nephrologist.

    “We got more results today. Madison’s kidney functions are at 64% and 65%. The doctor thinks the kidney damage was done during open heart surgery when she was on a bypass machine for over 6 hours and surgery for about 8 1/2 hours. [When she was three months old.] She is asymptomatic which is common she said with impairment and only by blood work and ultrasounds can you see what is going on.

    Needless to say we feel like we’ve had the wind knocked out of us once again and we cry as we don’t want to see our baby girl go through so much more…God is in control of this we know but it is still heart wrenching.

    We have more tests in February and meet with the other specialist as well regarding her phosphorus levels which are rising. The kidneys aren’t flushing as they should. We pray and we wait, and trust God. There are no interventions at this point as we still evaluate. February will be a big appointment for us for kidneys, and the heart in March.”

  2. I have a “sneaking suspicion” that Nightingale is getting somewhat involved with a new man. There have been just a couple little things that seem to point that way, along with maybe a dose of mother’s intuition (and/or a nudge from the Holy Spirit to pray about it).

    Please pray for wisdom and safety for her, and that if this man is not God’s will for her, the relationship will not grow at all. Also, please pray that she will have the courage or courtesy or whatever to be honest with me about it. Thank you.

    (It doesn’t help my concern that I had a vivid dream in which I got an inkling from God that Nightingale was going to have a baby this coming year. I know it was “just a dream”, but I have had a couple of those come true over the years.)
