Prayer Requests 7-22-20

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 144

Of David.

Praise be to the Lord my Rock,
    who trains my hands for war,
    my fingers for battle.
He is my loving God and my fortress,
    my stronghold and my deliverer,
   my shield, in whom I take refuge,
    who subdues peoples under me.

Lord, what are human beings that you care for them,
    mere mortals that you think of them?
They are like a breath;
    their days are like a fleeting shadow.

Part your heavens, Lord, and come down;
    touch the mountains, so that they smoke.
Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy;
    shoot your arrows and rout them.
Reach down your hand from on high;
    deliver me and rescue me
   from the mighty waters,
    from the hands of foreigners
whose mouths are full of lies,
    whose right hands are deceitful.

I will sing a new song to you, my God;
    on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,
10 to the One who gives victory to kings,
    who delivers his servant David.

   From the deadly sword 11 deliver me;
    rescue me from the hands of foreigners
   whose mouths are full of lies,
    whose right hands are deceitful.

12 Then our sons in their youth
    will be like well-nurtured plants,
   and our daughters will be like pillars
    carved to adorn a palace.
13 Our barns will be filled
    with every kind of provision.
   Our sheep will increase by thousands,
    by tens of thousands in our fields;
14  our oxen will draw heavy loads.
   There will be no breaching of walls,
    no going into captivity,
    no cry of distress in our streets.
15 Blessed is the people of whom this is true;
    blessed is the people whose God is the Lord.

  1. Son in law is doing better and is discharged. Husband is down there. Fourteen is back on track, learning how to flee the enemy rather than embracing.

  2. I’m also in a more hopeful mood this morning, it helps that the knee, which was hurting again last night, has calmed down once more. But then it’s usually at its best in the mornings.

  3. Shockingly, daughter and son in law are struggling in their marriage. Two and a half years ago, neither knew the other existed. Now they have three small children, lived in other lands, and have all the stresses of a double income (though mighty low) marriage. Prayer for patience and wisdom and love and truth. Husband plans to discuss the spiritual warfare angle with them. Words to say.
