Prayer Requests 2-28-19

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
   The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
   it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
   though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
   to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
   he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
   at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
   Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. I’m in Phoenix with my husband on a business trip. Yesterday was like a retreat: 2.5 hours of conversation at lunch with a friend, and the same at dinner (same restaurant) with another friend.

  2. Have you heard about this “Momo Challenge” that supposedly pops up in some kids’ videos on YouTube? It has been in the news for the last couple days, and the kids have been talking about it in school. The photo that is used in the supposed video is really creepy. (I saw that it may actually be an unrelated sculpture that has been hijacked for this use.)

    The Boy has seen videos about it (not the actual Momo Challenge videos) today, and is creeped out and a bit scared. He is afraid he will have a nightmare about it. Please pray he won’t have any nightmares tonight. Thank you.

    (This is kind of a request for my sake, too, as he will be downstairs with me tonight, so if he wakes up crying, I’m the one who would have to get up and comfort him. 🙂 )

  3. Hi Michelle, not a lot of people on here bring up spiritual warfare so I thought it might be you calling from the Phoenix trip. God knows and hears.

  4. My apologies for not signing in with my name yesterday. The spiritual warfare reference was mine. Thank you for your prayers — they have helped.

    Follow-up to my request two days ago regarding the ambulance at my friend Kathy’s house. She had some sort of episode — dizzy spell or something — and fell in her house. She was able to get up, though, and call 911. She needed a potassium transfusion, and had just gotten home from the hospital when I stopped by her house this evening after running some errands. She’s as spunky as ever, and full of gratitude to God for all the ways He protects and comforts.

    Thank you all so much for praying.

  5. Thanks, Mumsee. I appreciate the thought. (And the prayer accompanying the thought, I can confidently say, given your several mentions of my name on the prayer thread in recent weeks, I see.)

    My mind was whirling and my body wasn’t moving. I was down to 48 hours left to get something done that I knew about well before this week, but it felt like some force holding me back from finishing the paltry amount I’d started earlier this month, I think. A scary, horrible feeling of paralysis. God lifted me out of wherever I was within a few hours of requesting prayer, and tonight I’m all finished preparing for tomorrow morning. Praising God for praying Christian friends.

    DJ, they were checking for stroke with Kathy, too, as that’s what it appeared to be at first, as well. She was talking a mile a minute tonight, like usual, and nothing in her speech was garbled or anything. She did have one moment of not having a word come to her that she was looking for, but we all (or, well, I do anyway) have that on occasion, and I’m not 85 years old! 🙂
