Prayer Requests 3-4-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 30

I will exalt you, Lord,
    for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
   weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain stand firm;
   but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
   Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

  1. My writer friend Kim remains in Stanford Hospital, #1 on the lung transplant list. The battle to breathe is real and if she wasn’t at Stanford she’d be with the Lord.

    Her ministry continues from the ICU, but after 3 weeks, they’re weary. Please pray for continued strength for her, mercy, grace and lungs.

    My darling Jo, 100.75 years old, spent three days in the hospital over the weekend where they drew off one pint of liquid from her lungs. She has ulcerated sores on her legs and her kidneys are functioning at only 17%. Who knew that when your kidneys don’t work well, your body sloughs off the fluid elsewhere–in this case, her legs.

    Jo’s mind is basically functioning, but she’s also showing some personality changes to her niece which have us all concerned. We know the end is coming–as does she I imagine, and she’s ready to meet the Jesus she’s loved as long as I’ve been alive.

    I don’t know what to pray–exactly–but now I’m in tears. Thanks.

  2. Please, Lord, love on Michelle’s dear friends as they go through these days of struggle. I pray You will give according to Your will what each needs. You always know best and have our times in Your hands for Your good purposes. Thank You for believing friends that stay steady in the faith no matter what. Thank You for answers not yet realized. In Jesus’ name, Amen

  3. Mr. P talked to DIL for a long time this morning. He made sure she knew she had our support. He just received a text from her that the hospital called and is releasing son. She has been on the phone trying to get him in-patient care through the VA.
    Understandably she is concerned about him coming back into the home with her and the children.
    Please pray for safety, understanding, and help.

  4. I just had the opportunity to tell The Boy a brief explanation about Jesus dying in our place and being raised to life again! Please pray that the Holy Spirit will drive the truth in my feeble words deep into his heart and soul.

    How did this opportunity come about? Well, The Boy likes some kids’ YouTube “channels”. One of the “channels” he likes is the Axel Show which has a man, his son Axel and one or two of Axel’s friends going on little adventures and learning things. (This is one of the actually good kids’ channels on YouTube. The man encourages curiosity about the way things work and about nature, as he and the boys do pretend adventure playing outside.)

    A few times, I’ve heard the dad saying something about “speaking the truth in love”, and he mentioned “doing to others what you would have them do to you.” Hmmm. Could this guy be a Christian? (I usually don’t pay close attention to what is being said, but these caught my attention.)

    In the video The Boy watched today, the dad and the boys were on a pretend adventure with a pretend enemy, with “weapons” (pointy sticks, I think). The dad stopped and started telling them about a man who once let himself be taken away to be killed, but did not fight back. Well, that caught my attention! He said that the man’s friend used his sword to cut off the ear of one of the men who came to take the man away. Then he said that the man’s name was Jesus, and he quoted, “He who lives by the sword will die by the sword,” and asked the boys what they thought that meant.

    He went on to say that Jesus asked for forgiveness for the men who killed Him. I was amazed! (I guess he only mentions these things occasionally, so as not to be labeled as only for Christians, but still be able to slip in mentions here and there.)

    So, during that, The Boy asked a question, which I said I would answer at the end of the video, as I knew there were only a couple minutes left, and I wondered what else the dad would say. It was after the video that I was able to explain, briefly, that Jesus let Himself be killed in our place, for all the bad things – called sins – that we do, so that when we believe in Him, we can go to Heaven.

    I can’t believe I was actually able to say that to him!

    He then said he would kind of believe that, but kind of not believe it. Well, I guess that’s better than outright rejecting it. (Now I need to send a message to Nightingale, to explain how this came up, so if he mentions it, she doesn’t think I was trying to push something on him.)
