Prayer Requests 4-11-20

Anyone have something to share?

Luke 23:50-56

The Burial of Jesus

50 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, 51 who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. 52 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. 54 It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

55 The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 56 Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.

  1. Everybody is lonesome.
    I called my sister in Md. a cousin and a bro-in-law in Hendersonville, NC today just to chat. They are holed up watching old TV, or some such,
    One is thinking of just getting out and driving around. Like people used to do when I was a kid. People would get in cars and ride around. Hence, “Sunday Drivers”. But nobody does that anymore.
    Me? I’m blogging.

  2. Chas, my family used to do that sometimes when I was a child. Not always on Sundays, but sometimes. My husband and I are doing it now, for the sake of the car. It was more than a month ago we filled up, and it’s still registering as full. Only we seem to be on a Monday schedule for our drives.

    My family growing up never had Easter dinner, though in my twenties friends sometimes had me over for it, and I’ve eaten with my in-laws most years since we married. (Starting last year, we won’t be able to do that anymore, as it’s too far a drive.) I actually think it’s a blessing that I grew up without that special meal, since I associate Easter with the resurrection and not with a meal, candy, etc. (Well, I do buy jelly beans in the spring, but that’s only because that’s when they’re available!) It has been more than a month since I’ve been with any of my church family (other than my husband) or have been face to face with anyone other than my husband. I do miss corporate worship. But this is a season of fasting, and Lord willing we will be feasting again soon! And we can at least listen to our pastors preach and have a “taste.”

  3. I would like to request prayer for India. I got the following from a missions newsletter I receive.:

    The Government of India has issued a 3 week total lockdown. There is to be no one leaving the house
    This period will be a death sentence to many of the poorest who are likely to die of starvation and other illnesses before they die of the virus.
    Pray that this present crisis will be an opportunity for the message of Christ to be proclaimed throughout India. The callous treatment of the most marginalized in India is a consequence of a worldview that doesn’t see all human beings as created in the image of God.

  4. A request and a praise.

    My friend Glenn continues to be in ICU on a ventilator. Please pray for him and his family as they grieve and struggle with the decision on whether or not to remove him from it. That’s gotta be a hard thing for his loved ones to decide.

    The praise is for my friend Peter who at this time last week was on a ventilator and in ICU. Peter has been removed from the ventilator, and praise God, he’s now home with his wife and family! 🙂

  5. And another request.

    Ron H., an elder at our old church of 20 years, lost his wife to Covid 19 on Friday. They had been married for over 60 years and this is really hard for him and his sons. He could use prayer. Thanks.
