Prayer Requests 10-15-20

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her former students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 66

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name;
    make his praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
    So great is your power
    that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
    they sing praise to you,
    they sing the praises of your name.”

Come and see what God has done,
    his awesome deeds for mankind!
He turned the sea into dry land,
    they passed through the waters on foot—
    come, let us rejoice in him.
He rules forever by his power,
    his eyes watch the nations—
    let not the rebellious rise up against him.

Praise our God, all peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard;
he has preserved our lives
    and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
    you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
    and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and water,
    but you brought us to a place of abundance.

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
    and fulfill my vows to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
    and an offering of rams;
    I will offer bulls and goats.

16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
    let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
    his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
    and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
    who has not rejected my prayer
    or withheld his love from me!

  1. I pray Carol gets the help she needs, DJ. I do know a lady here who had to pay for her husband to be in the nursing home with one of those lifts. It was $8,000/month. They do have lots of Medicare patients there too.

    Please pray for anxiety and some resolution of some issues for me.

  2. Praying for release from anxiety, Kathaleena, and for resolution of the issues of which you speak.

    Please pray for my mom. She has called three times in the last six days — that’s atypical — and is so confused about the main, plain, simple topic that she has brought up in all three conversations.

    It was also a bit of a rough morning for me with my special-needs son, so the phone call from my confused mother just after that is all the more difficult for me to cope with.

    Thank you for praying.

  3. In other words, you can additionally pray for patience for me. It is ironic that someone like me, who isn’t blessed with abundant intelligence, gets impatient with others who struggle to understand things I think they should. There are, I’m sure, plenty of times people were patient with me when I failed to grasp what they understood.

    Ugh.

  4. Seems like Carol’s stuck somewhat — I spoke with the social worker at the facility she’s in now; she told me they need to heal her sores on her backside before they’d consider sending her back to Los Feliz (her more stable residence); but the administrator there again has told Carol she needs to get up and walk first.

    Without PT, however, that’s not going to happen. I asked if PT could be extended with a doctor’s help, social worker said possibly although then medicare would also have to approve paying for it and that could be more difficult.

    If she can’t go back to Los Feliz, the social worker said, we’ll have to look for a long-term care facility.

    Carol left Los Feliz in July (I couldn’t remember the timing) for low potassium levels and has been in 2 care places and the hospital since. So she’s been off her feet for a very long time and PT would be her only hope of changing that (and that’s probably even a long shot, I don’t know).

    I do have her doctor’s phone # but before that I want to nail it down with the LF (Los Feliz) administrator that getting up and walking, even a few steps, is a hard-and-fast requirement for Carol to return.

    She has all of her ‘stuff’ there also, most of it is in storage now in their basement I think. She said she has no clothes with her.

    Prayers for some kind of solution, Carol’s in tears at the thought of not going back “home” at this point.

  5. Such a sad situation, DJ. Prayers for Carol.

    Kizzie, 5:32, thank you, but it’s been a long time that I’ve felt not very smart. My parents meant well, but there was a while during my and my siblings schooling years that my parents awarded each A on our report cards with money. Anything short of that earned no reward. My brother and one of my sisters got straight A’s; me and my other siblings, not so much. I might have a couple A’s, and the occasional (dreadful) C, but I was mostly a B student, no matter how hard I tried. And I did try. My brother never brought home a stitch of homework; he’d easily get it done in class. He graduated in the top 10 students of his class of around 600.

    I felt very inferior after money started getting distributed for supposed harder work in school. Not to mention that I absorbed the unspoken message that if you don’t get the top grade, it means nothing.

    The things I still don’t understand as an adult are further reminders that I’m not the brightest bulb.

    Sorry to complain. That “message” came to me at a vulnerable time, and I haven’t been able to shake it.

    Which makes it all the more baffling that I struggle with impatience toward others who sometimes don’t “get it.” 😦
