Prayer Requests 5-13-20

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajissun and the folks in The Gambia.

Anyone else?

Psalm 94

The Lord is a God who avenges.
    O God who avenges, shine forth.
Rise up, Judge of the earth;
    pay back to the proud what they deserve.
How long, Lord, will the wicked,
    how long will the wicked be jubilant?

They pour out arrogant words;
    all the evildoers are full of boasting.
They crush your people, Lord;
    they oppress your inheritance.
They slay the widow and the foreigner;
    they murder the fatherless.
They say, “The Lord does not see;
    the God of Jacob takes no notice.”

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
    you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
    Does he who formed the eye not see?
10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
    Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?
11 The Lord knows all human plans;
    he knows that they are futile.

12 Blessed is the one you discipline, Lord,
    the one you teach from your law;
13 you grant them relief from days of trouble,
    till a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not reject his people;
    he will never forsake his inheritance.
15 Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
    and all the upright in heart will follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
    Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
17 Unless the Lord had given me help,
    I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
18 When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
    your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
19 When anxiety was great within me,
    your consolation brought me joy.

20 Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—
    a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?
21 The wicked band together against the righteous
    and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord has become my fortress,
    and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
23 He will repay them for their sins
    and destroy them for their wickedness;
    the Lord our God will destroy them.

  1. When you are two months away from 90 years. II Corinthians 5 takes on a significant meaning:

    5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

    2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

    3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

    4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

  2. That is my hope as well, Chas, at sixty two, nearing the end of rearing fifteen children with the realization that three may never become independent. We have so much to look forward to and yet need to keep the shoulder to the grindstone while here.

  3. Mumsee – I know that your 18 year old daughter will likely never be independent, but who are the other two? (Prayers for them all, btw.)

  4. Chas, are you trying to get to your birthday faster? 🙂 Last I knew you shared a birthday with my August brother, and that’s a bit more than three months away.

  5. Just checked in with Liz’s parents, who arrived safely in Maryland.

    She is STILL in labor–30 hours after they induced her. Docs are being very cautious, particularly with meds. Can we pray the baby is born soon???? Please? I can’t imagine.

  6. One of my daughter had a doctor who went long like that with her labor. Daughter told the doctor to just do a C-section already. Grandson was big, but he was healthy. Daughter was better off without the C-section in the long wrong. Praying baby comes safely and soon!
