Prayer Requests 6-24-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:145-152

ק Qoph

145 I call with all my heart; answer me, Lord,
    and I will obey your decrees.
146 I call out to you; save me
    and I will keep your statutes.
147 I rise before dawn and cry for help;
    I have put my hope in your word.
148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,
    that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love;
    preserve my life, Lord, according to your laws.
150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near,
    but they are far from your law.
151 Yet you are near, Lord,
    and all your commands are true.
152 Long ago I learned from your statutes
    that you established them to last forever.

  1. Last night I left a prayer request about Nightingale having been out for a while, much later than usual, and neither The Boy nor I knowing where she’d went. She came back eventually, but was not answering him as he repeatedly asked, “Where were you?” Figuring she did not want to say, I did not add my own questioning.

    My suspicion is that she is seeing someone. There have been one or two other times when she has left later in the evening without saying where she is going, nor even letting me know that she is leaving for a bit. (She has waited until The Boy was asleep, and last night she thought he was, but he wasn’t.) Since I didn’t hear her leave last night (I take my hearing aids out early in the evening), she may have done this more than I am aware of.

    It is her life, and she doesn’t need to report to me, although I wish she could/would share these things with me. My prayer request is that if my suspicion is correct – that she is seeing someone – God will give her wisdom in the relationship, and that if this is not the man He has for her, their feelings will fade quickly. I also pray that in her loneliness, she will not settle for a “casual relationship”, if you know what I mean.

  2. All of Bhutan is considered least-reached, but the people in the eastern and central areas are the most unreached as they live in remote mountain places with no road access. They hold to their traditions very strongly and are very devoted to the Buddhist religion and centuries of superstition and shamanism. They are reserved people and many are closed to hearing the Gospel. The small church is largely made up of Nepali Bhutanese; there are even fewer ethnic Bhutanese Christians.

    A Bhutanese couple and their young son have completed traveling around every district of Bhutan, identifying where believers and fellowships exist and seeking God for the least-reached areas to focus their ministry on in the future.

    They have a desire to bring ethnic Bhutanese believers together and are distributing SD cards with the Bible in Dzonka language to those interested. Direct evangelistic ministry is not legally possible and people do not want to hear, so ministry must be done through strong relationships.

    Please pray…
    Pray for believers. Many face pervasive persecution from within their own communities and the authorities.
    Pray for disillusionment with Tibetan Buddhism, shamanism and traditional strongholds and for people to see them for what they really are.
    Pray for the Scriptures that have been translated into the three main languages, that God’s Word will penetrate the dark strongholds.
    Pray for workers who can live alongside farmers and nomads and share the Gospel through living life together. Pray for this new Bhutanese family as they begin ministry in their own country; bless them with every spiritual blessing today.

  3. Tychicus, it continues to amaze me, the numbers of people and the workings of God. Thanks, again.

    Kizzie, not to worry, nothing unexpected there. Praying with you and for you.

  4. Kizzie we keep Nightingale in prayer. It would not be out of the realm of courtesy to request that if she is leaving without her child to please mention it to you so that you would know you should keep an ear out for Boy in case he needs something or someone. You could point out that you are not asking for her to tell you details of her activities but that you would be the responsible person in the home while she is out. How else are you to know?

  5. Yes, leave in the hearing aid and leave off the mask. 🙂 You could be missing entire dinner parties — with dancing — in your house.

  6. At least at his age now, The Boy will come downstairs rather than just crying upstairs. But yes, in case of a fire, I wouldn’t know to go get him. (Although, even if I thought Nightingale was home, I would probably be yelling up the stairs or something, to make sure they both got out.)

    The funny thing that happened last night was that he started texting me (he has a phone to keep open communication with his dad, and to play Pokemon Go with his mom), asking where she was. He sent four or five texts in very quick succession, ending with, “Mimi why aren’t you even answering?” Well, I hadn’t had time to as he sent them so quickly! 😀

  7. Had a call from my neighbors late tonight saying the water company in the desert called to say their 2nd house out there seemed to have some kind of a leak according to their monthly bill — as in 86,000 gallons. I told her that sounded like my kind of house luck. … They’re heading out first thing in the morning, asked me to feed the backyard fish & pick up the mail. Prayers that ithe source will be ID’d & fixed quickly and they won’t have to pay the full cost on the bill.
