Prayer Requests 7-23-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 142

I cry aloud to the Lord;
    I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
I pour out before him my complaint;
    before him I tell my trouble.

When my spirit grows faint within me,
    it is you who watch over my way.
   In the path where I walk
    people have hidden a snare for me.
Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
    no one is concerned for me.
   I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.

I cry to you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living.”

Listen to my cry,
    for I am in desperate need;
   rescue me from those who pursue me,
    for they are too strong for me.
Set me free from my prison,
    that I may praise your name.
   Then the righteous will gather about me
    because of your goodness to me.

  1. The Amazigh of Morocco. Amazigh is the name that Berbers call themselves by. There are actually Amazigh across all of North Africa – please pray for them, too.

    Our main focus in Morocco is on the South and the Middle Atlas Amazigh both in urban and rural settings. Due to intermarriage and urbanisation, finding ‘pure’ Amazigh people is increasingly difficult in the larger cities. All Amazigh are proud of their identity, and in the mountain ranges, many have preserved their distinct language and heritage.

    For hundreds of years they have been Islamized; however, before Islam conquered North Africa many Amazigh were Christians. Islam is all they know today, and it will take a miracle from the Lord to open their spiritual eyes and follow Him. The very few Christians among the Berbers are very proud to follow Jesus.

    Please pray…
    Pray that the spirit of fear and inferiority that many Amazigh live with will be broken so that isolated believers can stand up for Jesus and be a living witness!
    Pray for remote believers to join hands and form vibrant Jesus-following communities where individuals are supporting each other, meeting and praying together, encouraging each other, and witnessing together (Deut. 31:6).
    Pray for an ever-growing spirit of boldness on every Amazigh believer – may every believer be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:9)!
    Pray for godly local leadership to shepherd the believers scattered in the Amazigh region.

  2. Kathaleena – He and I used to exchange emails from time to time, and I read and commented on a blog he had. Then that all stopped. Last I had heard, he said that his daughter believed he was in the beginnings of Alzheimer’s, or some form of dementia.

    He had been getting more and more belligerent in his comments here and I think also on his own blog, which could be an indication of dementia taking over. I pray for him, too, and his family.

  3. Prayer for husband as he continues to sort through bureaucracy to get seventeen daughter figured out and twenty two daughter figured out. Lots of frustration. Yesterday, for example, he had an appt for signing some paper work for seventeen and had asked if she needed to come in as she is a minor. They assured him, no, she was not needed for a signature. As he was sitting at the car repair place, seventy miles away, they called and told him she was needed. So he had to go back today, with her, for her signature. Frustrating as he has lots to do and they just added a day of driving to his itinerary.

  4. I have met Amazigh. They would come from Mauritania to do business, owning many of the larger shops in the village. They would come to the clinic for medical care – one repeat client was quite pleasant to interact with. They generally kept themselves to themselves among the villagers. The Amazigh always wore a distinctive blue robe, over western style shirts and shorts, while the women – seen less often – wore robes that resembled the ones pictured in Bible illustrations, but did not cover their faces.

  5. I would like to request prayer. Recently I have upset two people in my life. I have apologized and asked for forgiveness.
    Then on the other side, I have been hurt by people in my life. The main one being BG. (I won’t go into all that has happened the past two or three months).
    The daughter in law in MD has hurt me as well. In the 6 and half years, we have traveled to see or take care of those two grandchildren 5 times. The past 2 years I have offered to pay to have them come down here so that Mr. P could have two of his children and all of his grandchildren either for Father’s Day or his birthday. Both times they have told me they couldn’t come for one reason or another. Yet, in this time they have gone to TX to see the Oldest Son’s mother and stepfather multiple times. I have taken vacation time to go take care of those grands. Until this past weekend, Mr. P and I have never taken a trip that was only about us. Even our trip to NC a couple of years ago was work-related for me.

    I think I am at the point of no longer crossing oceans for people who won’t cross a puddle for me.

  6. I’d like prayer that my growing headache and nausea go away soon. I’ve barely done any school today, and tonight I have 75 minutes of piano lessons. Thanks.

  7. The eyeglass team in Nicaragua saw 609 patients yesterday–by far the largest number in one day. My daughter is running the auto-refraction machine used on everyone to measure their eyes. It’s hard, tedious and an occasionally wonky machine.

    Please pray for her stamina, and that of the rest of the team in that hot humid climate. Thanks.

  8. On Saturday, I mentioned that the home loan statement on my internet bank had a glitch. On Monday, I sent a message about it, and today, it was fixed. What a relief.

  9. Thanks for the prayers. Headache was still raging at 5:00, which was an hour and a half before my first lesson. Nauseous, could hardly think, but I got on the phone and called the mom of my first student, then was going to call the second one after that.

    Phone of first mom rings and rings — 6 times. Then I hung up, thinking it’s too late to call, anyway; why did I wait this long; etc. etc.

    I decided to go ahead with lessons anyway and tough it out.

    And then, about 15 minutes later…the headache and nausea started diminishing.

    By the time of the back-to-back lessons (30 + 45 minutes), nausea was completely gone, and the headache not bad, and I could concentrate on what I was doing. Lessons went fine.

    Thank you very much for those prayers. I could really feel them during that interval between when I tried to cancel lessons and the start of my feeling well enough to teach.
