Prayer Requests 12-14-20

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:65-80

ט Teth

65 Do good to your servant
    according to your word, Lord.
66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment,
    for I trust your commands.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
    but now I obey your word.
68 You are good, and what you do is good;
    teach me your decrees.
69 Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,
    I keep your precepts with all my heart.
70 Their hearts are callous and unfeeling,
    but I delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to be afflicted
    so that I might learn your decrees.
72 The law from your mouth is more precious to me
    than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.

י Yodh

73 Your hands made me and formed me;
    give me understanding to learn your commands.
74 May those who fear you rejoice when they see me,
    for I have put my hope in your word.
75 I know, Lord, that your laws are righteous,
    and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
76 May your unfailing love be my comfort,
    according to your promise to your servant.
77 Let your compassion come to me that I may live,
    for your law is my delight.
78 May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause;
    but I will meditate on your precepts.
79 May those who fear you turn to me,
    those who understand your statutes.
80 May I wholeheartedly follow your decrees,
    that I may not be put to shame.

  1. Oh, I’m so sorry for Annie’s owners, how sad.

    Pray for wisdom and doctrinal soundness in the church in these times, for the successful rollout and quick effectiveness of the vaccine, and for those battling Covid-19 in what is hoped will be the final surge of the spread. Pray for our communities where people have too often turned against each other amid the stress.

  2. Kizzie, when you say “therapy dog,” do you mean a dog that was taken to nursing homes, hospitals, etc. to comfort residents? (In other words, not a dog that provides help to its owner but to other people?) I had thought about training Misten to do that, but she never really calmed down enough to be ideal for that work, as much as she loved people, so I never did. (And then by the time she was getting calmer, I married my husband, and I couldn’t be going into hospitals and such, lest I bring something home to him.)

  3. Nightingale had once thought of having Janie trained as a therapy dog for visits to nursing homes or hospitals, but Janie is too crazy. (I often call her Zany Janie. 🙂 ) She also tends to get nervous easily.

  4. Well, if they used “therapy dog” in print, then it’s probably something like I mentioned. I’ve seen it misused of people who have a “comfort animal” for themselves (basically just another word for a pet) and had wondered the meaning here.

  5. Neighbor told me today that our local Catholic hospital — just down the street where her husband works — is getting slammed, ventilators set up in hallways, the outdoor tent again erected in the parking lot (and often with waiting lines)
