Prayer Requests 3-19-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 45

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
    as I recite my verses for the king;
    my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

You are the most excellent of men
    and your lips have been anointed with grace,
    since God has blessed you forever.

Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
    clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
In your majesty ride forth victoriously
    in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
    let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
    let the nations fall beneath your feet.
Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
    by anointing you with the oil of joy.
All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
    from palaces adorned with ivory
    the music of the strings makes you glad.
Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
    at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.

10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
    Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,
    people of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
    her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
    her virgin companions follow her—
    those brought to be with her.
15 Led in with joy and gladness,
    they enter the palace of the king.

16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
    you will make them princes throughout the land.

17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
    therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.

  1. Thanks for praying for my parent conferences. I had a conference with parents today of a child that I had concerns about. It was the best conference that I have ever had. We had excellent communication and they understood everything that I said. We talked about what would be best for the child. Now the decisions are up to them, but they understand fully. I was in tears afterwards because it was such a relief and to feel so understood.

  2. Prayers for Elsita, that she will see God through this experience. Both in the disease and the compassion of believers showing the love of Christ to her.

  3. My mom is sick again. I’ll spare you the details, but she’s unable to take care of my dad today.

    One sister asked us siblings whether anyone’s had a conversation with them about going into assisted living. We’ll need prayers for wisdom on that.

    The thought is coming to my mind more often lately, wondering if my mom is going to even outlive my dad. She is 78 and he’s 89, but it seems that she has needed medical care quite a bit more often in the last year or two than he has. Other than his cognitive decline, his health is fairly good for his age, and he’s got heredity on his side, with his parents having lived into their 90s.

    I’m concerned that Mom might just keel over sometime, and Dad won’t have any idea what to do. When she collapsed in church two weeks ago and ended up being hospitalized overnight, Dad’s only concern was about her car being overnight in the church parking lot. And when she fell in their kitchen a year ago and broke her collarbone, my dad walked in, saw her on the floor, and asked her why she was lying there. Once upon a time he may have said something like that to be humorous, but he’s declined to the point that he can’t really process the seriousness of a situation like that.

    There’s family next door, but I don’t know at what intervals (and if they’re planned and regular) anyone is checking in on them.

    Thank you for your prayers.

  4. 6 Arrows, would your mom wear a medical-alert bracelet or necklace? We tried to get my mom to wear one and she wouldn’t, but it really isn’t a bad idea for an elderly person who lives alone (or lives with someone who wouldn’t know how to help).

  5. Praying for your parents 6arrows and trusting our Lord will bring to you all answers concerning the safekeeping of your parents.
    As you know we are facing difficult decisions concerning my Mom. I won’t be traveling home until next month. Mom seems to be doing ok for now and she really does not want to move from her house right now. And honestly I do not believe the situation is as dire as what my sister makes it out to be at present. My only concern is her driving. Twice in the past couple months she has hit the accelerator when she should have hit the brake. My sister was with her last week when she did so. Now sis has set up an appt at the hospital for a senior simulated driving test as part of a physical therapy program. I believe that will prove to be the end of her being allowed to drive…that is going to be very difficult. Taking it one step at a time and trusting we will know when to intervene on her behalf….and praying the same for you and yours my friend…..

  6. Thank you for the update, NancyJill. It does sound like your mom’s driving days are soon to end, when she’s confusing the accelerator for the brake. Hard for some older folks to lose their license. My father-in-law, who was not normally an angry man, was livid for quite a length of time after having had his driving privileges permanently revoked.

    Prayers for you and yours, dear sister, and with much gratitude to you and everyone else here who are praying for my parents. My mom is always blessed to hear about my praying friends.

    Thank you.
