Prayer Requests 3-2-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 24

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.

They will receive blessing from the Lord
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob.

Lift up your heads, you gates;
    be lifted up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,
    the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates;
    lift them up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is he, this King of glory?
    The Lord Almighty—
    he is the King of glory.

  1. Prayers for MP, a man from Carol’s once-removed MO Synod Lutheran Church who was so good to her through the last several years, insisting on buying her a new phone, driving all the way up to Hollywood from his town in east LA to pick her up and take her to the MetroPCS store, and sending her cheery GIFs on her phone every morning. He broke down sobbing when I told him on the phone that Carol had died.

    He has had a lung disease (not cancer) that is incurable and it seems now to be getting quite a bit worse. He has adult children and so has some built-in support and care, but pray for comfort and good medical care. In his last text he only said, “please keep in touch, having a hard time.”

  2. And that reminded me of something I thought I could do also, send him a GIF in the mornings since he seems to really enjoy sending and getting those — I’m not GIF-savvy but managed to send him a cartoon smiling ‘good morning’ cat, he replied with three smiling cats.

  3. Kevin, yes, she died on Dec. 10 — she’d been declining for a few months and most recently was keeping her phone turned off (voicemail was full), so it was hard to even reach her (she was in a rehab, hoping to get back to her regular residence, but never made it).

    Her brother in NJ had all the arrangements (cremation) in place already which helped and he’s handled everything from there, apparently members of the family are buried together and there’s a place for her as well there (in NY).

    It was very sad as I hadn’t seen her in so long as she was in a place that allowed no outside visitors, of course. I tried to get a little birthday group together in June last year, thinking maybe we could arrange a window wave, but that was too complicated to pull off, unfortunately.

  4. Hubby liked to use those silly “stickers” in his comments or Facebook private messages. When he was in the hospital, he and I kept in contact mostly through private messages throughout each day (until things started getting bad the last several days), and he used a lot of those stickers or the occasional gif. To make him happy, I started replying with those stickers. I think he liked that. 🙂

  5. Carol’s friend said even though her phone was turned off for at least a month or more before her death he was going to continue to send her GIFs every day — that way, when she felt better and turned her phone back on, she’d have them all to greet her.

  6. Yes, just also had an email from one of my late friend Norma’s friends (whom I only met once, I believe, and that’s been easily 10 years ago now). She was a little eccentric, I recall driving her around to and from her house and a restaurant we’d eaten at, just kind of a character. Anyway, she found me and wants to email or talk now and again.

  7. Thanks again for your continued prayers.

    Uncooperative patient. Physical symptoms improvement this morning, but then he sprung out of isolation and tried to go about normal activities around all of us. He listens to no one. (“They don’t know what they’re talking about.” “They keep changing their guidelines.” “This isn’t any different than the flu.” Etc.)

    I need patience, and he needs to learn how to rest and allow others to take care of him at a time like this. His main problem, besides the covid, is a strong work ethic run amok in this instance. He coughed so hard over the weekend, he brought up blood. Tonight another coughing fit came that sounded like something else probably came up, too.

    I don’t know who’s going to take care of whom when the rest of us get it. He wore himself out today, and hacked all over everything in the common areas of the house. We all need prayers. Thank you.
