Prayer Requests 1-5-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 129

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”

  1. Nepal: This diverse nation of 29 million has over 200 people groups who mainly practice Hinduism, with minority groups practicing Islam and Buddhism. Currently, three percent of the population are Evangelical Christians, largely in Kathmandu, leaving many districts with little or no Christian presence.

    Missionaries are seeing God glorified in miraculous ways in Nepal. Many people are being healed from spiritual bondage and physical sickness, resulting in finding new life in Jesus as they encounter His amazing love.

    Please pray…
    Pray that men or women of peace would be found – leaders among their people, people of respect who have great influence. Pray that they would believe in Jesus and that others would follow.

    Ask the Lord to grant Christians in Nepal a desire to continue to spread the Gospel, and for wisdom and discernment as they reach out to their neighbours.

    Pray for the Holy Spirit to flood this nation and the many districts with little or no Christian presence: Baitadi, Bajura, Bajhang, Mugu, Kalikot, Syangja, Rasuwa, and Siraha. Pray that God would break down spiritual strongholds among the least-reached communities.

  2. Please pray for Holy Spirit-inspired wisdom and leading for both me and Nightingale. I realize that, at the moment, Nightingale is not a believer, but I also believe that He moves in non-believers, too, especially when the situation involves one of His children (that would be me).

    She and I have very different ideas about what to do about the house. She would like to buy a different house and move (but still in town), but I would like to renovate this house and stay. Either option would not be for quite a while, and either one would be overwhelming, but moving would be even more so. (And I really love where we located in our town.)

    So if God wants us to move in a couple years or so, I need to have that sense of direction from Him, but if He wants us to stay here, Nightingale needs to have the wisdom in her own heart that it is the right thing.

  3. Isn’t God amazing? Here we sit in our own little corners of the world, doing our own little things, and God calls us to pray for our brethren. He hears and He moves. Not because we make Him, but because this is the way He chooses to use His people. And He treasures our prayers. He waits to hear from us. Not because of our own selves but because of His and the love He has for us. Amazing.

  4. Please pray for my back. I had to hold the gurney longer than usual, (I forgot to move O2 to the gurney from the wall), having his whole weight.

  5. Mumsee, God is indeed amazing and works in mysterious ways. He is so far beyond our understanding. It is great to call out to Him in intercession for others whenever and wherever. Right now I hear a dove calling outside my window. I never hear them at this time. They always remind me of God (Jesus’ baptism). So sweet to hear that while praying and conversing about prayer.

  6. Yesterday my friend, Karen, was really struggling and said she knew I would not want to hear what she had to say. She spoke tearfully that she thought everyone would be better off if she died. All I could do was to begin praying over the phone for her. I prayed a long time. She felt much revived afterwards. I can not take any credit for it except for being obedient to pray in her time of need and trouble. Now I can’t even drive to help her. Please pray that her health can improve and that she can be treated with more kindness by those near and dear to her. Thank you.

    Rkessler, reading about the strain to your back made me feel a bit of pain. Please be careful! I know sometimes it can’t be helped. Prayers that it will quickly feel better.

  7. It has been such a blessing to have Wesley home this time for longer than usual. He is being helpful, and with me not able to drive . . . he is a much better driver than he use to be (at least I have no complaints 😃).

  8. We have a church plant with people from the region around where Tychicus asked for prayer. It is a Bhutanese church plant but I think some of the people are from Nepal. I love to see those people going to their services. They are smaller in frame than most Americans. I hope their church can grow to have many more attend. If I had more time I would like to somehow be involved with helping some of the members. Perhaps just meeting to practice their English. Something informal like that.
