Prayer Requests 2-2-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 4

Answer me when I call to you,
    my righteous God.
   Give me relief from my distress;
    have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
    the Lord hears when I call to him.

Tremble and do not sin;
    when you are on your beds,
    search your hearts and be silent.
Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
    and trust in the Lord.

Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
    Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when their grain and new wine abound.

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,
    make me dwell in safety.

    The Rohingya people are a displaced people group living in the northern Rakhine province of Myanmar (Burma). The UN estimates that more than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have fled ethnic cleansing in Myanmar into Bangladesh. Of those seeking asylum, about half a million are under the age of 18; nearly 100% claim to follow Islam.

    Please pray…
    Pray for teams who are networking with local churches and other Christian organisations to provide as much support and help to the Rohingya as possible. Ask God to open doors for them.

    Pray for good relationships between the Bangladesh and Burmese governments. Pray that the violence in Myanmar will stop. Pray for a peaceful and God-honouring agreement to be reached regarding the future return of refugees.

    Pray for God’s healing hand on the Rohingya who have fled in fear. Pray that the support and debriefing provided will help them process their traumatic experiences and be set free from all fear.

    Pray for more Jesus followers, both local and foreign, to actively engage in sharing the Good News with the Rohingya. Pray that out of this suffering thousands will respond to the love and care shown to them and follow Jesus.

  2. Janice, did you see my Feb 1 suggestions in answer to your “how do we pray for the masses” question? It would seem to apply here as well, with the Rohingya.

  3. Heavenly Father,

    I lift up Kim this morning to You for blessing in her inner person. Please boost her spirits up because the have sunk low. I pray she can see beyond the present slights and crushing blows to a better time and place in her family concerns. Please help her process totally giving up any control over BG and other relatives to You. I think she feels defeated in lengthy battles that are Yours in the spiritual realm. Help Kim to settle peacefully into the role of watching You work things out in Your way while she prays. Kim is such a doer, Lord. Please help her to relax into Jesus and trust that what He did on the cross for her was enough to cover any shame and guilt she has been retaining. Please heal the wounded soul of the child burdened with the baggage of having had an alcoholic mom. I lay this all on You today, Lord, knowing You are the One absolute true help that any of us have.i ask that You increase Kim’s faith, hope, joy, and peace in a myriad of ways unknown to her at this time. Give her a heart full of peace and love to conquer the spears of hurt she receives. Please give her a mind full of joyful and hopeful thoughts. And please fill her soul with greater faith than she has ever known.

    I also pray for my other friends here similarly that any of the above needs that they have would be filled for them,, too.

    Lord, do me of us may just be tired and needing more rest. The demands of modern life with all the red tape and impersonal treatment by people we don’t really know can get us down too and make us feel like we don’t matter. Thank You for Your word that tells us of Your love and our value in the most important way which is to You above all. I praise You for how You will be in process of answering this prayer and others lifted here on this site. In Jesus’ name, Amen

  4. Thank you Janice. Yesterday was really hard. I sat in the bath tub and cried. I made the decision to go see my doctor next week.
    While I love my job I feel like everyone wants a piece of me. Everyone else wants something.
    There is more to the story of course and I may share more of it tomorrow.
    Today was better. I spent time with BG. We got pedicures and spent the afternoon together.
    Again, many thanks to all of you for caring.
