Prayer Requests 12-4-20

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 115

Not to us, Lord, not to us
    but to your name be the glory,
    because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven;
    he does whatever pleases him.
But their idols are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
They have ears, but cannot hear,
    noses, but cannot smell.
They have hands, but cannot feel,
    feet, but cannot walk,
    nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear him, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us:
    He will bless his people Israel,
    he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear the Lord
    small and great alike.

14 May the Lord cause you to flourish,
    both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord,
    but the earth he has given to mankind.
17 It is not the dead who praise the Lord,
    those who go down to the place of silence;
18 it is we who extol the Lord,
    both now and forevermore.

    Praise the Lord.

  2. A friend said yesterday, “I’m not afraid of COVID. I figure if Laurie could survive it, anyone can.”

    Thanks for your prayers.

    Laurie’s doing much better, COVID done, and now dealing with the usual chronic lung-disease issues, but in excellent spirits and up and walking around, living with her husband again. (He’d been quarantined into a separate part of the house.)

    She’s come back from the brink so many times . . . a walking miracle.

  3. Franz update:

    Day 6 Summary(“The full deck”):
    – 104.5 degrees temperature
    – bronchia being suctioned to clean out “gunk” from lungs
    – pneumonia
    – c-diff (intestinal sickness)
    – C6 bridge still a temporary fix, permanent to come soon after another neck surgery
    – pelvic bones still a mess, surgery still to come
    – feeding tube still in
    – still on ventilator
    – his arms tied down
    – tracheotomy will be soon
    – still on “sleepy juice”
    – still can’t converse with him
    – still paralyzed from the nipples down
    As Day 6 draws to a close I am struck by the fact that God’s grace flows where it will, when it will.
    There is a time to tell those close to us how much we love them. That time is NOW.
    I continue to wait and to trust and to tell God how much I love Him.
