Prayer Requests 1-10-20

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 132

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David
    and all his self-denial.

He swore an oath to the Lord,
    he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house
    or go to my bed,
I will allow no sleep to my eyes
    or slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place for the Lord,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard it in Ephrathah,
    we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
“Let us go to his dwelling place,
    let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
    may your faithful people sing for joy.’”

10 For the sake of your servant David,
    do not reject your anointed one.

11 The Lord swore an oath to David,
    a sure oath he will not revoke:
   “One of your own descendants
    I will place on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
    and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit
    on your throne for ever and ever.”

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion,
    he has desired it for his dwelling, saying,
14 “This is my resting place for ever and ever;
    here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.
15 I will bless her with abundant provisions;
    her poor I will satisfy with food.
16 I will clothe her priests with salvation,
    and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.

17 “Here I will make a horn grow for David
    and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
    but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

  1. So, as you know, we would like to know what God would have us do. Last week at church, a missionary spoke and mentioned they have a refugee camp near them, filled with refugees from other countries who were caught trying to work their way to Europe with the hope of getting to America. With new policies in place, the people will be looking to other countries as they can not return to their home countries. However, they have a number of unaccompanied minors and the States still offers them refuge, if they have a home to go to. We are willing to be such a home, but God must make it happen if that is His plan. As our children age up, we are available to help these young people figure out how to live in America. We have the space. But is that God’s plan for us and for them?

  2. Pray for my neighbors’ oldest son who goes in today for removal of a melanoma on his back. He’d earlier (maybe a year ago?) had one removed from his forehead so the concern is that there’s a connection. But last time they found the lymph nodes to be clear so that’s a good sign. He’s in his 30s, married w/kids. Looks like they all left early for the hospital today.

  3. I don’t. They’re home and I’d texted them earlier that I was praying for them all (he’d just gone into surgery). It’s the dad’s birthday today, too. Figured I’d wait to hear from them but will call them tomorrow if I haven’t heard anything by then. I’m a *little* concerned she didn’t call or text to say all went well, but I know they’re both also just wiped out and tired from the stress. Thanks for praying and asking — will hopefully have something to report tomorrow.

  4. She’d texted that he was in surgery as of 8:30 a.m. or so, then noticed their car was back probably before noon — I was swamped, I was at home but dealing with a lot of work-work today. Finally off the clock now. I did get all of our emptied trash cans rolled back up to both our houses, didn’t want them to have to deal with that.
