Prayer Requests 11-5-19

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 86

Hear me, Lord, and answer me,
    for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
    save your servant who trusts in you.
   You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord,
    for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
    for I put my trust in you.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
    abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, Lord;
    listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
    because you answer me.

Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
    no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made
    will come and worship before you, Lord;
    they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
    you alone are God.

11 Teach me your way, Lord,
    that I may rely on your faithfulness;
   give me an undivided heart,
    that I may fear your name.
12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
    I will glorify your name forever.
13 For great is your love toward me;
    you have delivered me from the depths,
    from the realm of the dead.

14 Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God;
    ruthless people are trying to kill me—
    they have no regard for you.
15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
    slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
    show your strength in behalf of your servant;
   save me, because I serve you
    just as my mother did.
17 Give me a sign of your goodness,
    that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
    for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

  1. I was reading Ps. 126 this morning.
    V. 6 says “He that goeth forth weeping, bearing precious seed, shell doubtless come again rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
    There used to be a song years ago, nay! Decades ago, about “Bringing in the sheaves”. I only remember the chorus, it has been so long ago.
    But I liked it.

  2. Good morning, having a lovely visit with daughter and family.
    Had a run to the hospital yesterday with concern for labor, turned out to be a UTI. Patient is feeling much better with meds(older daughter).

  3. NancyJill (replying to your question last night) – Yes, Brother and SIL live in the same town as we do.

    From a photo that was shared on Facebook by the fire department, it looks like the garage and breezeway were engulfed, but not the main house. I guess SIL’s mention of losing “mostly everything” could be due to smoke damage.

    They have very good friends in their neighborhood, and are pretty well-off financially (plus they have home insurance, of course), so they have good support without us, but of course I made it clear that we are here if they need us. One thing I thought of was that if they lost photos, I could give them some of ours.

    My pastor, whom I had asked to pray, asked me if he could contact them to offer help. Knowing them, direct contact from him would not be taken well, so I said I would pass on a message to them. (He hasn’t gotten back to me yet.)

  4. Tennessee Ernie Ford used to have a tv show that was watched in my household when I was growing up. I remember it being on one night as we were packing for our Sequoia trip the next day. My aunt and uncle from Minnesota were temporarily staying with us (in our garage) at the time and I remember thinking my uncle looked like Tennessee (but really only because they both had mustaches 🙂 ).

  5. Prayers for your brother and SIL, Kizzie, how traumatic. Possibly smoke and water damage? But maybe not as bad as it originally seemed once the crisis has ended. Did they rent or own?

    Prayers mostly that God uses this as their turning point to bring them to himself.

  6. Thanks Karen. I didn’t get any subuequent songs. I have Tery Gowdy..

    1. It has melody
    2 words rhyme
    3 It has meaning

  7. That is a very big house. I was thinking back to my aunt and uncle staying in the garage and recalled that our house then was not even 800 square feet, 2 small bedrooms and one small bathroom; teeny-tiny. My current house is 1,200.

  8. Our two-family home is about 2400 sq. ft., so each of our “units” is about the same as your house, and we feel that this house is plenty big for the three of us. (Even if Chickadee and Hubby were still here, it would be plenty big.) We have a total (in the whole house) of five bedrooms and two bathrooms. (Nightingale has the extra bedroom, and I have the dining room.)

    SIL and Brother only had one child, who has been grown and out of the house for a long time now. A while back, SIL said they would eventually sell this house and move to a smaller one, but they love their neighborhood and neighbors.

    It is one of those neighborhoods where the neighbors get together for cook-outs and other parties several times throughout the year. A lady and her daughters, from my former church, lived a few houses down from them, but did not participate in the neighborhood gatherings. I think they were seen as standoffish by the other neighbors, which disappointed me.

  9. Struggling with overload paralysis, I think, and some apparent anxiety simmering just below the surface, seeing what’s not getting done while I’m in this state of overwhelm. But I know that everything I took on was by my own choice.

    I could use prayers. (It was hard to even come here to say that.)
