Prayer Requests 3-19-20

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 45

A wedding song.

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
    as I recite my verses for the king;
    my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

You are the most excellent of men
    and your lips have been anointed with grace,
    since God has blessed you forever.

Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
    clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
In your majesty ride forth victoriously
    in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
    let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
    let the nations fall beneath your feet.
Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
    by anointing you with the oil of joy.
All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
    from palaces adorned with ivory
    the music of the strings makes you glad.
Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
    at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.

10 Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
    Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift,
    people of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber;
    her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
    her virgin companions follow her—
    those brought to be with her.
15 Led in with joy and gladness,
    they enter the palace of the king.

16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
    you will make them princes throughout the land.

17 I will perpetuate your memory through all generations;
    therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.

  1. Prayer for twelve year old who is losing the vision. She may be homesick, scared, fatigued. I tell husband to keep up her routine as that helps keep her steady but it is difficult when juggling three little folk and keeping ahead of eighteen and her stuff.

    And pray for husband, who has been sleeping on the floor, on a dog bed under a tv, or in a room with a small lazy boy. Not the easiest thing for a sixty five year old with rheumatoid arthritis. Though most of his nights and days are spent on the larger lazy boy, holding babies. Which is also tiring.

  2. Jo, his two weeks end on Monday, he has no symptoms and I do not know if they will test him. Then twenty two and the three babies can move home with him. Both he and she will then be expected to go to work but their lag time should leave about six hours a day of needing babysitting. My husband will move to thirty five’s basement with eighteen and possibly twelve
    and they will drive over and cover those hours and a bit extra so one parent is not left alone with all three at once. Perhaps, twelve year old will be able to continue her mission for that part or for evenings and stay at their house. Push her but not overwhelm her is my desire.

    They cannot afford day care until April but they are lining it up with a woman who has been a nanny of three but does not have medical experience. She is willing to learn. So, if she works out, husband will plan to stay a few days into April, to make sure it is a go, and then come home. Whether twelve stays or not will be decided then.

    It is actually quite good for both of them (twelve and thirteen) to be separated for a bit. They are both learning new skills and building confidence without the other to rely on.

  3. CDC has changed the quarantine to seven days. Son in law is now a free man! The family is moving to their home to be with their husband/daddy. He will get to hold his babies outside of the hospital for the first time and begin reinvesting in fourteen month old. Pray for the reintroduction which all military families are familiar with, it can be challenging.

  4. PNG and Australia are closing their borders. Some folks are rushing to get home in the next day before everything closes. From Ukarumpa it is mostly high risk medical folks and some friends who were going to retire in June. In fact the retiring folks may be coming here.
