Prayer Requests 7-3-20

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”

  1. Praying for Kizzie during this time of life in doing a difficult dance with both grandparenting and co-parenting. I have experienced it for weeks at a time and that was difficult enough. When it is day and day out it is a great challenge. So glad we have a God that has promised us all we need to do what He has called us to do!

  2. Chas: He who sits in the heavens laughs,
    The Lord scoffs at them.
    Then He will speak to them in His anger
    And terrify them in His fury, saying,
    “But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.” vs 4, 5, 6

  3. Psalm 2:

    “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
    Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
    Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
    Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

    I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
    Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
    Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

    Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
    Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
    Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”

  4. This is the third day of struggling with an unusual level of fatigue, despite my not doing much. I haven’t finished the kitchen project, like I wanted to by this time. I’m mostly piddling through things, and have had to take naps all three days, including already today and it’s barely past noon.

    I took my temperature just now, but no fever. Something doesn’t feel right — I’m not sure if it’s the heat lately (upper 80s, low 90s), though we have air conditioning, or if it’s something else. Prayers appreciated. Thanks.

  5. 6 Arrows – Not to dismiss a physical cause, but it could be a combination of grief and the heat, even with the air conditioning. (I don’t know about you, but if it is humid, I feel it even through the air conditioning.) Grief can be exhausting. Rest as much as you need, whatever the cause.


  6. Thanks, Kizzie. I appreciate you weighing in about grief. I had wondered if that’s some of it. And questioned, too, whether I might actually be repressing grief and that that might be part of the fatigue problem. (I know frequent crying can be exhausting, but maybe frequent not-crying, in my case, when I’m sad is just as tiring?) The tears did come again last night, after approximately a week of not crying at all — a fact that, truthfully, bothers me, because it seems like I’ve much too quickly “gotten over” Karen’s passing. I cried more in the two weeks before her death than in the two weeks since.

    It’s a strange and baffling time that seems really backwards of how I thought I would (or should?) grieve. Maybe it’s false-guilt-induced fatigue?

  7. I have had acid reflux episodes two days in a row. Yesterday it was just after having one cup of morning coffee. The boys came over and I sat down and ate a small portion of the Chicken south Texas I had prepared…I should not have. This episode of spasms has lasted over 2 hours and I had to excuse myself and go upstairs so “I could die”! Still much discomfort and I guess I should make an appt with doc but would appreciate prayer…thanks
