Prayer Requests 11-7-20

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?
    Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
    your splendor to their children.

17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.

  1. My mom is eating and drinking very little. She may be near the end according to my sister. I had just sent a book to her and she got it on Thursday. She was sitting up and reading from it in a picture I received. It is difficult for me to really know, since I am not there. She never talks about her health to any of us. She was just in to see the doctor, so I am not worried and I do believe my sister is doing her best. She has a DNR. I would appreciate prayers for her to make sure she knows the Lord and for peace for her however long left she has.

  2. I’m debating whether to put this here, or on the R&R thread.
    I decided: HERE

    Many years ago, I was still single, hadn’t even met Elvera. I was having a time of turmoil in my personal life. I was also a new Christian so far as my commitment the the Lord was concerned.
    I was sitting in my bed reading Psalms. I came across a verse in chapter 90 Verse 4 says,”For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday when they are past”. Words of comfort you say? I immediately went back the show the Lord Chapter 89, V. 47 which says “Remember how short my time is.”
    I don’t have a thousand years.
    That was sometime in July of 1955. I met Elvera on the stairs of FBC Columbia in October.

    The strange thins is. And I still don’t know why:
    I should not have been on the stairs of FBC that morning. All my friends were at Everett Talbert’s church for some event. After lunch, Elvera went down there with me. I still don’t remember why.

    Everett Talbert was a friend and felljow student. He was a bit older than we were, and pastored a Margaret’s home church. Some event was happening.
    Don’t remember what.

  3. This morning I was praying, “Please forgive him, Father, for he doesn’t know what he is saying or doing!”

    Boy was saying that God doesn’t exist, but Satan does. He was babbling on about things like that, even saying that he loves Satan and hates God. (Apparently, if God does exist, He is evil, but Satan is good. 😦 )

    I realize that Boy is probably only saying these things to bait me, and so I don’t over-react. But inside, I am shaken, and crying out to God to save this grandson of mine.

    I need to ask Nightingale to have a serious talk with him about respecting other people’s religions and views, if not for my sake, then for the sake of others he will meet in his life. (She is working today.)

  4. Kizzie, when they are very young, some of my nieces and nephews have sometimes spoken defiantly of God, usually when they were being rebellious against their parents. Boy is a little too old for that kind of behaviour, and too young to think up ways of insulting your beliefs on his own – especially if you have not been allowed to explain them in any depth – so this is coming from an adult and it is unlikely to be Nightingale. I hear his father in both this and how he been treating his mother.

  5. I think I already told you that our pastor who had covid is fully recovered and back at church. (His wife and five daughters are well, too.) Today we learned that our second pastor got diagnosed yesterday. Please pray for him and his wife and four children.

    Perhaps we should also pray for our third pastor and his wife and three children…

    Update on Laura: Her diagnosis was bladder cancer. It appears they were able to remove the whole tumor, and that she doesn’t need further treatment, but will need yearly checks throughout her life. She is back at work and doing well. Thank you for praying for her.

  6. My friend Laurie is on her way to the ER–complications of fungal lung infections and COVID. “She’s not doing well,” her husband John said. He is feeling a little better, but very concerned about her.

    Their oldest son is in college, recovering from COVID. They had to put him in a quarantined hotel room for two weeks, but his youngest brother is at the same college and brought him food.

    Challenges, for sure. Thanks for prayers.

  8. I made a FaceTime call to my mom. She does not look or act good at all. She insists she is not in any pain. She dressed herself this morning and can still walk to the bathroom herself. Otherwise, it is not good at all. Her voice is very soft and difficult to hear.

    During the call, a couple of the young deer showed up just outside our window, so I switched the phone to show her, my sister and BIL those. Then I went out to shoo the one away that decided to eat some more of my cedar or hosta near by. I was only a few feet from the deer with the phone, so they enjoyed that. My mom had very little reaction, however. 😦 The funny thing is that it is deer season here. We keep shooing them away as we watch vehicles going past with hunters in them. I did hear some shots this afternoon. BIL pronounced them perfect size for meals. He was a hunter when they lived up here.

    I said what I could to my mom. She is so ready to go. I was able to tell her as long as she has asked Jesus to take her sins and she is ready, I don’t blame her for wanting to go. I asked if she were ready to see my dad and she said yes. Of course, she wanted to go right after he died. She was supposed to visit her brother today, but the tropical storm/hurricane made that impossible. Now my sister says she doesn’t dare take her. She was able to have phone calls with her other siblings. She never has been much for using the telephone and it is difficult to really talk to her. It helps with the FaceTime option.
