Prayer Requests 2-20-20

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
   In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
   The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
    making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
    giving joy to the heart.
   The commands of the Lord are radiant,
    giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
    enduring forever.
   The decrees of the Lord are firm,
    and all of them are righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
    than much pure gold;
   they are sweeter than honey,
    than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
    may they not rule over me.
   Then I will be blameless,
    innocent of great transgression.

14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
    be pleasing in your sight,
    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

  1. Yes, grateful indeed, I am.

    Thank you for your recent prayers for my student who played in last weekend’s solo/ensemble festival. He had his lesson tonight and forgot to bring the judge’s evaluation form and one of his books, lol. Another student tonight forgot to bring all of his music and left a library book behind at lessons.

    Sometimes I have to laugh (to myself) about these funny quirks with students. 😉

    But to get to the point… My student who played last weekend told me that on the judge’s sheet, every category of musicianship on his pieces was marked with either the highest (#1) or second highest (#2) rating (on a scale of 1-5). For students who get all 1s and 2s, the overall rating is one or the other, depending on which number he got more of.

    My student reported he received more 1s than 2s, so his final rating was a 1! Happy student and teacher. 🙂 (Though I always make sure students know before events like that that it’s the process, and not the end result, that matters most.)

    He’s excited to continue building from here, and he had a great lesson tonight! I’m thrilled for him, that this all turned out to be a positive experience.

    Your prayers both encourage and bless me. Thank you, friends.
