Prayer Requests 5-1-19

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajissun and the folks in The Gambia.

Anyone else?

Psalm 90

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
   yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?
    Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
    your splendor to their children.

17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.

  1. Ps 90:4 says “A thousand years in your sight are as a day gone by.”
    Every time I see that, it reminds me of a time of turmoil I was having in 1955.
    I was reading Ps 90 and came across v.4. Then I remembered that I had just read 89::47. “Remember how short my days are.”..
    I don’t have a thousand years.
    I have a problem that needs to be dealt with NOW.
    It wasn’t dealt with in July as I expected and prayed.
    But in October it worked out beyond my greatest hopes.

  2. Always sad to see the violence of humans to humans.

    Prayer as I try to arrange for Bible study for daughter. She said she wanted to attend. She has no car and no license so I am hoping some folk will be willing to pick her up on the way and she will be willing to go.

  3. Please pray for my friend Jenn (the lady who has serious health issues) today as she has a major, and complicated, surgery with more than one surgeon involved. They said it could take several hours, and in her already precarious health, there is a possibility she may not even make it through. Please pray that not only will she make it through, but that this surgery will accomplish all that it is supposed to, and even more, and for a quicker-than-expected recovery. Thank you.

    This surgery will not solve all her health problems, but should help with one or two issues she has been having, and should make her life a little bit easier. She will still be pretty much an invalid, and still not be able to eat foods other than nutrition drinks and baby food, but this will help a couple other matters.

  4. My daughter-in-law has been suffering some post-birth health issues. Went to the doctor today. She’s feeling physically battered. Baby is great, but was complaining this morning when I put her in the car seat!

    Meanwhile, the 7-month old Adorable bruiser is getting ready to walk. He’s almost as big as I am!

    Well, maybe not, but he is a strong athletic child–just like his mama.

  5. Kizzie, that ship has sailed. I have been instructing my agents for two years not to discriminate based on gender or sexual identity. It is a lawsuit looking for a place to happen.
