Prayer Requests 2-8-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 5

For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.

Listen to my words, Lord,
    consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
    my King and my God,
    for to you I pray.

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
    in the morning I lay my requests before you
    and wait expectantly.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
    with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
    in your presence.
   You hate all who do wrong;
you destroy those who tell lies.
   The bloodthirsty and deceitful
    you, Lord, detest.
But I, by your great love,
    can come into your house;
   in reverence I bow down
    toward your holy temple.

Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies—
    make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
    their heart is filled with malice.
   Their throat is an open grave;
    with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
    Let their intrigues be their downfall.
   Banish them for their many sins,
    for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
    let them ever sing for joy.
   Spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
    you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

  1. Giving thanks and praise to God! And thank you all for your prayers!

    The phone call with the lady from Social Security went well. To top it off, I will be getting a good amount more than I had figured or expected! That is such a relief!

  2. I have a last name that would. 🙂 And between social isolation for 11 months now, winter (our snowiest in several years), and my husband having shingles, it hasn’t been a very companionable start to the year.

    The good news (and an answer to prayer) is that our younger daughter has been accepted into the next stage of the nursing program. She got her LPN a year ago and wanted to continue on to the RN, but the state was slow at sending her information she needed before she could apply, and she missed the deadline. (A few others didn’t get the information they needed, either, so she may well have others in her class she already knows from the first year.) She ended up being glad, since last year it would have gone online right away, and instead she was able to get full-time work and more experience in a time when nurses were needed.
