Prayer Requests 2-29-20

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
   The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
   it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
   though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
   to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
   he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
   at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
   Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. Prayer for son in law who may actually be on his flight back from Okinawa to his family! Would like to see him with family, without any coroanvirus. If he is not, it is possible he won’t be anytime soon if they don’t allow flights.

  2. Praise that Wesley finished his dissertation. After whittling down, he got it to 300 pages. Now on to the next hurdle. Graduation is in May. Thank you to all who prayed to give him support to this finish line.

  3. OK, Chas, here are a few of my prayer requests from the last week, with (the previously neglected) updates following them.

    On the 2-22-20 prayer thread I wrote this:

    “If God wills it so, there is going to be a very special meet-up next week that I will most likely be a part of if it happens.

    I’ll fill you in on the details later, but there is a young woman who lives in the South who plans to travel to the Upper Midwest, where she has roots. None of my extended family has met her, but she’s going to meet with my brother, whom she contacted last month, at my parents’ house, bringing with her some letters and pictures her grandmother had received from my dad’s brother who died during WWII. (Her grandmother and my uncle had been dating at the time he got sent overseas.)

    Please pray for safe travels for J. (I don’t know whether she’s flying or getting here another way, or what day she’s starting her journey, but the plan so far is to meet on Friday.)

    And also, if you could pray that God makes a way for J’s travel plans to work out that my parents can get to meet her, those prayers would be especially treasured. My dad has spoken so much over the years of the only sibling he ever had (Dad was 15 and Uncle 19 when the latter died). For my dad to be able to meet this young woman who has some keys to the past when his brother was still alive would mean so much to him, I know.”

    Today’s update: J flew to the Midwest yesterday, and several of us, including my parents, got to meet her. A tremendous blessing from God that I will write about another day.

    On the 2-24-20 prayer thread I wrote this:

    “I woke up today with pain near my left shoulder blade. Any movement, including trying to take a deep breath, is uncomfortable.”

    Today’s update: On the 25th the “pain” was really more of a dull ache, and the discomfort with deep breathing was gone. By the 26th, everything was completely back to normal.

    On the 2-27-20 prayer thread I wrote this:

    “6th Arrow is recovering much more quickly than 4th Arrow did, and had a far less intense case during it. Thank you for praying. … And while I was typing that, 6th Arrow came and told me she just threw up…”

    Today’s update: 6th Arrow threw up only the one time Thursday night, then slept well, was considerably better yesterday, and today is doing fine. (And no one else has gotten sick with what 4th and 6th had, or anything else.)

    Additionally, yesterday I put a couple of updates at the end of the 2-27-20 prayer thread. One of them was in the afternoon, so could have easily been missed.

    Let me know if there’s anything specific you’ve been praying about on which I may have neglected to update.

    Thanks for praying, Chas and everyone.

  4. Blue light treatment was “easier” this time than 10 years ago. Technology meant the “oven” went around my head, I didn’t have to stick my face down into it. Maybe I mentioned I prayed for a number of you . . .

    It looks like I have a terrible sunburn–which is basically what I have. I’m really red and my face is swollen and hurts.

    When I put a cool washcloth on my face, I can feel the heat radiating out. I’ve been putting moisturizer on my face and now have thick sunscreen spread all over.

    “You actually look better with the white stuff on your face,” said my “nurse.”

    Hopefully, any precancers are gone. Yikes!

  5. Our friends, D & S, found a duplex they can afford – it looks nice and it has an unfinished basement where the kids can play. An answer to prayer. Thank you for praying.

    We are planning to surround them with friends and love to help them through the hurt of what the parents did to them.

  6. I’m glad they found a good place, Kare. And good for all of you coming alongside them with care and compassion.

    Janice, 300 pages! Congratulations to Wesley — that is a big accomplishment.

    Michelle, ouch, that still sounds like it hurts, but I’m glad the treatment was sorta/kinda easier?! May God grant it yield good results.

  7. My husband’s brother is in the hospital with bacterial pneumonia in both lungs. His wife also had the bacteria. The last time we saw them (a couple of weeks ago) was at a restaurant. They had been to the clinic then and both were coughing. I think she got some medication then. I wasn’t too happy when she sat down for a bit while chatting. They did not stay long. She is a retired RN and was so fussy about anyone being out while sick. It surprised me they were out. He has had several heart surgeries.
