Prayer Requests 9-21-20

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 45

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. Day 3 of Flyboy’s post-wedding quarantine. He stays in his bedroom (and bathroom across the hall) all day. I leave dinner for him on a tray outside his door, then pack food for his night shift and leave it by the front door to grab on his way out to work. When he gets home in the morning he heads straight for his bedroom/bathroom to sleep. We talk either through his door or by phone or text.

    They recommend waiting about 5 days to get tested after possible exposure – sooner and there might not be enough in the system for the test to pick up. So he’ll get tested Friday.

    This seems kind of extreme since so far we’ve heard of nobody at the wedding having Covid. But it’s the most risky event he’s been to since this started, and everyone else in our house is more vulnerable, so if he is carrying it we don’t want it. It’s a bummer for all of us though.

  2. My niece the veterinarian couldn’t believe her child was sick either, but his throat and tummy hurt, laryngitis, so she took him in and was incredulous when the test came back positive. She had assured me they only have 5-7 cases of COVID per week in her county.

    The only place he’d really been was school . . .

    OTOH hand, Kevin, the real concern is you, not Flyboy.
