Prayer Requests 7-1-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 122

I rejoiced with those who said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
Our feet are standing
    in your gates, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built like a city
    that is closely compacted together.
That is where the tribes go up—
    the tribes of the Lord
   to praise the name of the Lord
    according to the statute given to Israel.
There stand the thrones for judgment,
    the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
    and security within your citadels.”
For the sake of my family and friends,
    I will say, “Peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your prosperity.

  1. An important meeting tonight at church between the elders and the Board of Education (my part). I’ve been struggling with my attitude for weeks on this subject. I don’t want to go.

  2. We are having an important board meeting at our church as well. I don’t have to go. Some ‘stacking of the board, I believe. Many are not happy, including us.

  3. I’m sorry to be MIA so much around here. I want to do better in offering prayer support to all of you, and hope that life circumstances will be such that I can be here for you more than I have been recently. That, of course, is dependent on God’s will and timing.

    I have a follow-up to a prayer request I made in May, and have new ones to add, if I may.

    Follow-up: my husband has recovered from his hernia surgery on May 24th, and after four weeks off work, followed by one week of half days, he is now, as of today, back to work full time. Thank you for your prayers for him and for our adjustment as a family while he was off.

    New request no. 1: for my mom. My sister-in-law (who is next door to my parents) has reported that Mom has twice in the last couple of weeks fallen asleep in her recliner while food was cooking (burning) on the stove. SIL didn’t tell us the first time because she thought it was just kind of a fluke thing, but when it happened again this weekend, she told all of us. (And those are only the times she knows about, as she just happened to go down there. Who knows if it’s happened more times recently that SIL isn’t aware of.) Pray for wisdom for my siblings and me and our spouses as we further discuss options for safe living for my parents, who don’t want to go into assisted living.

    New request 2: selfishly, for me. There are times I feel something like mild panic (does that make sense?) rising up in me. Very subtle, but disturbing in its own way. My life is overall good, and I’m enjoying what I’m doing — homeschooling, teaching piano, participating in other musical ventures (less this summer than at other times) — but something I can’t identify is happening that brings me to the edge of panicky overwhelm more often now. It’s a mystery to me, and I’d appreciate prayers for wisdom and clarity, and patience as God reveals what, if anything, He would have me to know about it all.

    New request 3: prayers as I prepare to start running again. I got a gait analysis and a good, new pair of running shoes that are much better for my narrow feet and, interestingly, which corrected my faulty running mechanics. No knee pain whatsoever, jogging in these shoes. (I ran around inside the store a few times, to the amusement of other customers, lol.) My emotional well-being is so much improved when I can run regularly, so I’m praying that these shoes, combined with running in town on a softer surface than on my road, will keep me injury-free and able to enjoy the benefits of regular running again.

    Please also continue praying for my newest piano student. I left a cryptic prayer request here last week, anonymously, to pray about his family situation. You can add more prayers for wisdom for me as I teach him. Sorry I can’t say more (due to confidentiality).

    Thank you, all.

  4. I was anonymous. It was my husband’s last day of radiation today. The side effects will remain for awhile (maybe permanent, but hopefully not). We will not find out if all the cancer is gone until October when his blood will be tested.
