Prayer Requests 2-20-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
    Who may live on your holy mountain?

The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
    but honors those who fear the Lord;
   who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

   Whoever does these things
    will never be shaken.

  1. Mild vertigo this morning.

    I’m feeling weighed down these days from the emotional pain so many around me are enduring.

    I’m also praying through elements from the past which I didn’t realize were such areas of echoing grief.

    Tears are good and part of healing. They can, however, be disconcerting.

  2. And I wish I could remember Elvera from the multitude of good days we had together.
    But the burdens of the last couple of years gets in the way. WE had a wonderful life together, it’s just the last three-four that turned bad.
    But she maintained her sweet disposition throughout.
    She was just a sweet person.

  3. Chas, my mom had that issue initially when Dad died. She could only really remember him in the hospital. That didn’t stay true for long, but she found it disconcerting initially.

  4. Although our church has, so far, been spared from anything but the mildest brushes with the virus, my husband and I continue to watch the livestream, as do a few others of the most vulnerable. Every once in a while we get a reminder that that is a good idea for us, and today was one of those: we have four positive cases. Our senior pastor’s wife is one of those, and our senior pastor has some health issues that would make it a concern for him. One of the others is a young but healthy senior (almost 70)–but she has relatives and friends in the church and outside it who are older and some quite a bit less healthy, and who presumably might have been exposed. (Since she is a lifelong single and all her siblings live locally, they tend to get together, and in the church is a lifelong friend who is also a lifelong single, and who checks off more of the issues for being vulnerable.)

    Anyway, we’re praying for no more spread, particularly to the vulnerable like our 90-something couple, our pastor, and the family and friends of the senior lady who has it. (She herself has become a special friend to us, so we are hoping for a light case for her, as well.)

  5. We’ve had recent cases in our church as well, our home church pastor, his wife and our sister church pastor have all had the virus; as have several families.

  6. Since I’ve been writing about Nightingale and Coach over on the daily thread, it is a time to ask prayer for salvation for both of them, as well as for Coach’s family – his divorced parents, his sister (she may have children), and his two teenagers.

    Also, please pray for Chickadee again. She has been uncommunicative lately, not replying to my texts, except to wish me a Happy Valentine’s Day a couple days late. I fear that perhaps she has slid into a deeper depression than usual.

    In case you may think that I may be overdoing the texting – I have sent about three texts over the last week and a half, with days between each one. They have been brief and pleasant, not prodding or pushing anything. (For example, one was about Nightingale popping the balloons from my birthday that had gold confetti in them, and how the confetti has been tracked all over my part of the house. Just a little something to make her smile.)
