Prayer Requests 7-26-19

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 145:1-13

I will exalt you, my God the King;
    I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
    and extol your name for ever and ever.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.

The Lord is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
    your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.

   The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
    and faithful in all he does.

  1. Elvera ate her Cheerios and drank her orange juice this morning. And is having coffee and watching TV now.
    Thanks everyone for your prayers and concern.
    I was really worried abut the “spitting out” event. But I think it was a temporary reaction to something.
    But she always liked the soup she was eating.

  2. Chas, I think I am safe to say that you and Elvera are never far from our thoughts and always covered in prayer.

    Speaking of that. I am not sure what is going on with BG. She has been ignoring me for about a month now. Probably longer. I am doing my best not to be hurt. I also don’t know if I should continue to try to get her to do something with me or just let her be and let her come to me when she is ready.

  3. Kim – I understand. Chickadee hasn’t been over for a visit in a month and a half. I have felt for a while that something is going on that she isn’t telling me.

    May the truth come out from both our daughters, and may God’s Truth be revealed to each of them as well.

  4. Kim and Kizzie, you’ve voiced a lot of what I feel about my relationship with 2nd Arrow (oldest daughter). She doesn’t contact me — period — just to talk. When I contact her, it’s mostly me asking her how she’s doing, what she’s up to, etc., and her giving mostly one-sentence answers. I don’t want to feel like I’m interrogating her, but that is what it feels like, so most of the time I don’t bother anymore.

    My husband reminds me I was the same way with my mother when I was daughter’s age. What comes around goes around, I guess, or it does in this case.

    Meanwhile, I imagine her friends and favorite aunts and cousins on Facebook are shaking their heads at that poor girl who apparently has a mother who doesn’t care enough to contact her much. At least that’s how it appears to me, ever since I made it known to my daughter that I didn’t approve of her cohabiting before she got married. That has had long-term effects on my relations with extended family, which haven’t resolved in the 10 months since their wedding.

    Those fave FB people are probably going to hear news of the birth of my granddaughter before I do. And if I know her, she’ll call her dad on his cell phone to announce the birth, and I’ll find out right away only if he’s not too busy or distracted with other things to let me know right then.

    (We do have a landline, but she won’t call that unless she’s already talked to her dad, and maybe not even then. She might just have him tell me, in which case, see above paragraph.)

    Trying to take every thought captive, and not assume the future will play out like the past has, but I’m not doing so very successfully, as you can see, especially as the due date approaches. (It is tomorrow.)

    I did literally lose sleep over this last night (awake from 12:30-5;30), feeling like this isn’t fair because I was the one who carried her for 9 months (and 11 days past her due date, to boot), was in labor with her from a Monday afternoon to the Friday morning following it), but all I get are conversational leftovers and no heartfelt connection.

    In other words, Kim and Kizzie, I hear ya, and the prayers are certainly needed for me. Praying for your mama hearts, too. You both help me be stronger, sharing your vulnerability. Thank you.

  5. Having a lot of trouble composing an email to my siblings right now about my visit to my parents’ yesterday. I wrote them last night after getting home, but it was a short, bland, no-bad-news-reported report. Today I wanted to add more of my observations from yesterday’s visit — the not-good-news part — but keep erasing (purposely) what I’ve written. I think they’re too close to the situation to see some things clearly (though other things I’m sure they see more clearly than I do because they have more context, living in the same town as our parents), and/or they’re in some state of denial. I can’t keep an angry tone out of my email, and just keep deleting, deleting, deleting, and sit behind the screen crying and crying and crying.

    I need a break. Walking away now to take one.

  6. Thanks for those constructive points, Michelle. I’ll try that tomorrow after I’ve hopefully had better quality sleep than I had last night.
