Prayer Requests 3-30-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 56

Be merciful to me, my God,
    for my enemies are in hot pursuit;
    all day long they press their attack.
My adversaries pursue me all day long;
    in their pride many are attacking me.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise—
   in God I trust and am not afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me?

All day long they twist my words;
    all their schemes are for my ruin.
They conspire, they lurk,
    they watch my steps,
    hoping to take my life.
Because of their wickedness do not let them escape;
    in your anger, God, bring the nations down.

Record my misery;
    list my tears on your scroll—
    are they not in your record?
Then my enemies will turn back
    when I call for help.
    By this I will know that God is for me.

10 In God, whose word I praise,
    in the Lord, whose word I praise—
11 in God I trust and am not afraid.
    What can man do to me?

12 I am under vows to you, my God;
    I will present my thank offerings to you.
13 For you have delivered me from death
    and my feet from stumbling,
   that I may walk before God
    in the light of life.

  1. I am so thankful for all the scripture I do have memorized. It is wonderful to run through these comforting, truthful words in the wee hours of the morning when sleep eludes. We need to encourage such memory more and more. The older I get that is more my thinking on that subject.

  2. Please pray for Zenna. A judge has ruled she will go back to a father who is probably still on Meth. There is a family that wants to adopt her and gave up their foster license to do so. This girl is most unhappy and foster mother is quite upset and worried as well. Right now there are weekend visits for a month. Pray the truth will come out and what is really best for this girl is what happens.

  3. When civil war broke out in Somalia in 1991, millions of Somalis were displaced, while hundreds of thousands moved to refugee camps. Over recent years, the situation for Christians in Somalia has worsened. Islamic militants have intensified their hunt for Christians, whom al-Shabaab operatives regard as high-value targets. 

    Today there are approximately 20 million Somalis in the world, but only around nine million live in Somalia itself. Although many still reside in the Horn of Africa, Somali diaspora have spread across the world, including New Zealand/Australia, Western Europe, and East/South Africa.

    The Somali share a common language and are proud to say they are 100% Sunni Muslim. Their society is built on a very tight family and clan system, making it quite closed. This mindset is also found in the diaspora, where converts experience persecution for their faith.

    Please pray…
    Pray for faith-based NGOs like SomaliHope, established and fully run by Somalis in Sweden. Their vision is to “see the integrity of the Somali people restored, a pervasive peace to emerge and the Somali nation to ultimately be rebuilt” through humanitarian aid and empowerment, particularly for women.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of Somalis towards Christ-followers in their countries of refuge so they will be receptive to the Gospel. In faith, declare that now is the time for the Somali diaspora to come into the Kingdom of God in vast numbers.

    Somalia is rated #3 on Open Door’s Most Persecuted Countries list. Pray for Christians to stand strong while suffering under the radical Islamic militant group, al-Shabaab, and the country’s tribal system.

    Pray for safe fellowship and encouragement for isolated believers who worship in house churches to keep their fellowship a secret.

  4. We have a refugee church plant in our church building. We need volunteers for one Sunday (a month or quarter) to help with the children’s classes which are in English rather than in their parent’s language. I am trying to discern if God wants me to be involved with it or if He has some other work for me to do. Thank you for praying not only about my possible involvement, but that the needed workers will step up for this missions opportunity.

  5. Sounds like seventeen year old may have broken an arm or something on a dirt bike of sorts. Husband is off to the hospital to sign him in for treatment. I guess parents are useful after all.

  6. Good thing for him that stupid’s reward didn’t include a catastrophic brain injury.

    Mumsee, have you heard anything more about Darby and her parents? A few years ago, I was following a Facebook page about her, but stopped following it after a while.

    (For those who don’t know who I am referring to, she was the teenage girl who had brain damage from falling off the back of a truck – I think.)

  7. Nope, but we learned that her mom was a criminal, stealing the money from the jars she put around town, dealing drugs, using our car to transport them, telling me she had left town to get into a women’s shelter to escape her abusive husband, etc. So most of what she said about Darby was probably not true. Darby did have a significant brain injury. Her dad, I believe, was trying to protect her from the mom so went quiet.

  8. Husband is attempting to run the PARE again Monday night. Please pray he makes it as this will be the last time he ever has to run it. He’s doing really well since his surgery and with cortisone shots in both his knees as well as his shoulder. Thank you.
