Prayer Requests 1-8-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 131

My heart is not proud, Lord,
    my eyes are not haughty;
   I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
But I have calmed and quieted myself,
    I am like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child I am content.

Israel, put your hope in the Lord
    both now and forevermore.

  1. Please pray for God to help The Boy understand and believe what I tell him about Him. (I often pray that God will give him “a heart that beats for You.”)

    Although still not free to “proselytize” my grandson, there are times when an opportunity to say something about God comes along. Unfortunately, that opportunity is often when The Boy bursts out with “God’s not real” or “God didn’t create us, he was created” or “a meteor created us”. I have no idea where he gets those ideas. (Nightingale seems to still be an atheist, but she doesn’t believe that kind of stuff. Maybe his dad says those things? Or maybe The Boy just makes them up?)

    Our recent conversation was initiated when he told me that God is a myth like Santa Claus and the other mythical characters he recently found out are not real. But as the conversation went along (zigzagged along is maybe more like it), I had the chance to talk about Heaven a little bit, mentioning that Papa is now in Heaven.

    The Boy seems to sometimes have a skeptical streak in him, although he can be quite gullible, too. He often asks “How do you know that?” when he is told something (not referring to our conversations about God). Please pray for God to open his eyes, to give him a heart of understanding, and a spirit that is sensitive to God’s voice and leading. And anything else you feel impressed to pray for him. Thank you.

    (Now that I think of it, I think Nightingale has a similar skeptical streak in her.)

  2. All that skepticism can be a good thing once the truth is known. It is built on a strong basis. Praying that is so for your children and grandchildren.

  3. Kathaleena – Yes, I agree. Sort of like when I used to tell Nightingale that her stubbornness was not such a good thing, but she could turn it into perseverance for doing what is right. (Which she largely has done in many ways.)

  4. If he has a logical mind, he will soon see that order does not come out of chaos. Prayers for you. I have had to tiptoe through some of those conversations before. You do not want to undermine parents, but truth needs to be the thing he can count on from you.
