Prayer Requests 6-3-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:1-8

א Aleph

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart—
they do no wrong
    but follow his ways.
You have laid down precepts
    that are to be fully obeyed.
Oh, that my ways were steadfast
    in obeying your decrees!
Then I would not be put to shame
    when I consider all your commands.
I will praise you with an upright heart
    as I learn your righteous laws.
I will obey your decrees;
    do not utterly forsake me.

  1. I’m heading off to the Dr. this morning for an emergency appt. for my twice surgically repaired shoulder. Don’t know what I did, or what happened, but the pain has been excruciating all night long after starting yesterday morning. Didn’t sleep but maybe an hour. No matter how I sit, stand, or lay, the pain remains, even when using the left arm, the right screams in pain. Yay. What a start to the week. Prayers would be appreciated.

  2. The 30 days of prayer focus will have two requests, as I did not post yesterday:
    The Hadhrami of Yemen come from the Hadhramaut, which means the Valley of Death. Along with other Yemeni, the Hadhrami today truly live in the shadow of death, as the survival of 21 million of the 27.5 million people of Yemen are threatened by war, famine, and cholera, in the midst of a proxy war between Iran (Shia) and Saudi Arabia (Sunni). Yet God has called Hadhrami to the Saviour by dreams and visions. Pray that the people that dwell in the land of the shadow of death would have the Light shine upon them (Isaiah 9:2, and that those who have the Lord as their Shepherd would fear no evil as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23:4).

    The focus for today is on the refugees in Europe. In 2019 alone, over 15,000 refugees have made the crossing, with over 400 feared drowned. There are widespread reports of Muslims coming to Christ after coming to Europe. Pray that the churches of Europe would demonstrate love for the stranger as Christ called his people to in Matthew 25:34-40. Pray for wisdom for government and institutions in dealing with the refugees and that the humanity of these people would not be forgotten. Pray for many refugees to come to Christ, that whether they stay in Europe or return to their countries, that Christ’s Church would continue to grow and his people might spread through all the earth.

  3. OK, I’m home from the Dr.

    Pinched nerve in the shoulder neck area. For now it’s Prednisone, pain killers, and physical therapy. There is also some concern because the films show deterioration of one of my discs in the area of concern which the Dr. thinks might be causing my issue. If the above treatment doesn’t work, then surgery becomes an option. 😦

    We’ll see.

  4. Mumsee – I was just wondering about my glorified body this morning, wondering how much it will look – or not look – like the one I have now. I imagine that in some way I will still look like me, only much better. But who knows? I’m hoping I will have a full smile and be able to turn my eyes. But even if not, I am sure I will have no complaints. 🙂

    My prayer request: Recently I mentioned that The Boy has been missing his mommy while she is working (when he’s not in school). That is continuing, and his need for her seems to be getting “worse”. I feel so bad for him. (She is working tonight.) Hopefully, Gabby will want to play when her mom comes.

    (She only comes over when her mom gets back from work, since she is in the daycare next door. Her mom then hangs around with my neighbor, visiting or helping with things in the yards, and Gabby is allowed to come over to play.)

  5. Kizzie, it is amazing to me how we tend to think a child only needs its parents as a baby. I remember a nurse friend telling me that she believed teens needed parents more than babies, the interaction not just the support. I believe children need the interaction through their lives. May God fill the needs as only He can.

  6. I’m sorry, Michelle. 😦

    Mumsee – I believe that myself.

    I wasn’t sure how to word his needing his mommy. Of course, he needs her. But this is more than that, almost a little obsessive, but not quite obsessive (if that makes any sense).

    Nightingale spends as much time with him as she can. They had a great time together this weekend, and they do things together throughout the week after school (except for the two or three nights a week she works 2nd shift).

    Gotta go now and read with him.

  7. Kizzie, I feel your pain. I, too, work lots of hours and miss time with my boy. One thing that makes it harder is that I have to be the disciplinarian also. He says that I am not like dad, I don’t give warning after warning before dealing with an issue. I just deal with it. I need him to know that what I say is what I mean. When I am home, he is stuck to me. We will get through it, as will you.
