Prayer Requests 1-5-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 127

A song of ascents. Of Solomon.

Unless the Lord builds the house,
    the builders labor in vain.
   Unless the Lord watches over the city,
    the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early
    and stay up late,
   toiling for food to eat—
    for he grants sleep to those he loves.

Children are a heritage from the Lord,
    offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
    are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
    whose quiver is full of them.
   They will not be put to shame
    when they contend with their opponents in court.

  1. Prayer for husband and grandson as they return today.

    Son in law says they are hoping to reunite the family on the eleventh of this month. Daughter moved back in with him last week. Hopefully, they are working things out and preparing for their children to return. I reminded him that they need to find another babysitter as he goes to work at five thirty and she does not get home from work until seven thirty. And then they had a babysitter through the morning so she could get some sleep. But daughter fired the babysitter.
    Prayer for the logistics as well as the hearts.

  2. Praying, Mumsee, for their hearts to be fully surrendered to God and for them to soak in God’s word however they can find it, by Christian radio programs, reading, fellowship with Christians, etc. Praying for a new sense of unity for their family empowered to overcome obstacles that always are present in life. May they recognize that abiding in God will allow His strength to flow through them so that they can accomplish what seems impossible to humans. Prayers for steadiness of emotions and resolve to stay the difficult course without being wishy-washy. Blessings on extended family who support them as much as possible. Prayers lifted in the name of Jesus.

  3. I just saw that our oldest beloved (recently active) church member, a former Minister of Music, member of our men’s quartet and the small choir I was in, has passed away. I am sad over this.

    Michelle, he lived a few doors down from our friend L and he attended your luncheon program.

  4. Uncle Frank stable, oxygen numbers up. We’re thankful.

    Dr. L’s husband, about 60, a week after coming down with COVID and with wife home caring for him, has now been admitted to the hospital where she works–everything being thrown at him. His oxygen numbers are falling.

    Such an odd disease.

    Thanks for your prayers.

  5. We are heading to Ruidoso for Covid testing as Miguel is quite ill and had an exposure before Christmas on the ambulance. No provider will see a pt without covid results. He refuses to go to the ER.

  6. About a month ago I asked you all to pray about my friend Nadine’s missing cat. She was heartbroken, especially since she had just had a surgery with a long recovery. After a while, she gave up hope that he would be found. Now and then, I would still offer up a prayer for him to make his way home.

    Today, Nadine heard a loud meow at her door, and there was Sterling! He is thin, but seems so happy to be home. She says that he is sticking close to her, and purring up a storm. I am so very happy for her, and for him!

  7. Yay Sterling!!

    We had an old “Tom” cat (which we named “Tom”) who sort of came with the rental house we moved into when I was about 9 years old.

    He was tough, a big, gray stay cat who wouldn’t come indoors for years, we had to leave his food outdoors; eventually, he’d dash inside the back door to eat, but only as long as it was left wide open. He was ‘adopted’ and loved by us and when he’d vanish for days (or longer?) on end, I’d be heartbroken, convinced he’d never return. I remember watching the “Lassie Come Home” show one year and just crying as it reminded me of “Tom.”

    But he always managed to limp home, battered and scratched and wounded, but hungry and (seemingly) happy to be “home.”

    Eventually, he came indoors for good and lived to a very ripe old age before we had to have him put down for old age, eventually.

    I still remember how my kid-heart would leap when he’d return home after one of his long absences.

    So yay for Sterling. I relate. 🙂
