Prayer Requests 12-11-20

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 119:33-48

ה He

33 Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees,
    that I may follow it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
    and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
    for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
    and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
    preserve my life according to your word.
38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,
    so that you may be feared.
39 Take away the disgrace I dread,
    for your laws are good.
40 How I long for your precepts!
    In your righteousness preserve my life.

ו Waw

41 May your unfailing love come to me, Lord,
    your salvation, according to your promise;
42 then I can answer anyone who taunts me,
    for I trust in your word.
43 Never take your word of truth from my mouth,
    for I have put my hope in your laws.
44 I will always obey your law,
    for ever and ever.
45 I will walk about in freedom,
    for I have sought out your precepts.
46 I will speak of your statutes before kings
    and will not be put to shame,
47 for I delight in your commands
    because I love them.
48 I reach out for your commands, which I love,
    that I may meditate on your decrees.

  1. My condolences, DJ. It is a comfort to know someone is out of pain, but also the grief is there. I am glad you received that last phone call, so have some idea of her last moments.

  2. Oh, DJ, I was so sorry to read of Carol’s passing. Prayers for you and others who loved her through the years. It is especially difficult to lose her at this particular point in time. I know you have God’s peace with you but sadness, too. Hugs and a warm cup of comfort to you ♡

  3. DJ, I’m glad you had that phone call with her and that you know that she is no longer suffering. Still it is hard to lose a friend, and I’m sorry.

  4. Thank you — yes, she’d become ill enough she really didn’t like talking on the phone and she’d become very hard to reach in the past couple weeks.

    So the late-night phone call surprised me and i also am so glad to have had that last short talk with her — she mostly just needed to say how much in pain she was, how sick she felt, and wished she could go to the hospital. I mostly listened, said how sorry I was and was praying for her. I told her I missed her and she said she missed me, too. We last actually “saw” each other probably in February when I went up for what most recently were monthly in-house visits since she could no longer go riding around with me to do her errands and sightsee a bit. Then the pandemic hit and her facility was under extra-tight restrictions for visitors, of course.
