Prayer Requests 3-9-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 30

I will exalt you, Lord,
    for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
   weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain stand firm;
   but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
   Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

  1. Amen, Mumsee!
    He has the whole world in His hands. And Jesus is interceding to the Father on behalf of those we are lifting up. Our prayers are heard alongside His.

    Thank You, Father God, for the privilege of having a prayer huddle with You over those here and their families who are suffering from physical or other afflictions. You see all that 6 Arrows’ family is tangling with from Covid. You see Roscuro as she is unwell and trying to gear up for her surgery. And our beloved Chas is in the midst of processing his grief over losing the wife he has loved for ages. Please may each of these feel Your care, strength, and love throughout their ordeals. When things seem so out of control, please give reminders that You are working things out in Your timing and in Your ways. If fears try to rush in and dismay I pray You will flood them out with Your love. Thank You for being trustworthy and using weak vessels such as myself to be burden bearers for Kingdom dwellers in need. I lift my prayerss in the name of Jesus, Amen

  2. Please add my SIL, Jeremy, to your prayer list. He has recently lost quite a bit of weight and started having trouble walking. Last night they did a lumbar puncture and diagnosed him with Guillain-Barre syndrome. We are praying for a full recovery.

  3. Still missing and very concerned (worried) about my Chickadee, who has not communicated with me in three weeks. Very unusual for her.

    (She rarely initiates texting, but she does usually respond to mine, even only with an emoji.)

    And since I am sharing that, I might as well also tell you that Nightingale and I disagree about how to handle it. She thinks that I should refrain from texting Chickadee at all, which I am only doing every several days, and it has been a week since my last text to her (in which I told her about my follow-up appointment with the surgeon, but also asked if she is okay). She thinks that my texting her despite her not replying could be seen as pushy.

    I see her point, but my thought is that if Chickadee is indeed in a deeper depression, her failure to respond is a symptom/result of that, and if I drop off trying to communicate with her, it could be construed as not caring, or giving up on her. Not to mention that since Chickadee does not initiate texts, so it is very unlikely that she would one day decide to do that.

    Please pray for wisdom and insight for me. And also, please pray that whatever the cause of Chickadee not replying, God would move upon her heart to get in touch with me, even if briefly, even if only an emoji. (Most of all, that He would move upon her heart to turn her to Him. And the same for Nightingale and Boy.) Thank you and God bless.

  4. Kizzie, if you call, will she answer the phone? It doesn’t seem “pushy” at all to me for a mother to text her daughter once or twice a week. And I’d be concerned too.

  5. Beautiful prayer, Janice. Thank you.

    Praying, RK and Kizzie.

    Piano lessons 4:00-8:30 with two breaks in there, which will help. I’m feeling a little crummier today; the sore throat and fatigue increased a bit, and I developed a headache. Prayers for stamina as I push through. Thanks.

  6. Also, husband was medically cleared to return to work today, but his workplace is asking him to wait until tomorrow. He did stay out of public places the whole time of his quarantine, and today is using his “free” day to go to his brother’s and take the trailer and a car there that we don’t have room for here.

    His cough lingers, but everything else he had with the covid is gone now. Thank you again for the prayers.

  7. I would be tempted to tell her if you don’t hear something soon, you may have to ask for a welfare check. I would keep texts short and sweet and certainly not overwhelming, but it doesn’t sound like you are doing that. Does she feel she would have anywhere to go if she left where she is living, Kizzie?

  8. Cheryl – Chickadee is very anxious about talking on the phone, so that is why we text. But I have considered trying to reach her that way if this continues for much longer. Then again, the question is if she is not answering texts, will she answer the phone?

    Kathaleena – Since she is living with the McKs, I don’t think I would do that. And I am very hesitant to ask YA how Chickadee is doing, because of YA’s attitude about us. From some little hints, I am pretty sure that she believes that she and her sister and parents are more of a real family to Chickadee than we are, that they “accept” and understand her and we don’t. (Not true, of course.) My asking her would give her more “power” or something (not sure how to explain that). It would be as if I am crawling to her for information on my daughter, and having to admit that she has not been replying to my texts. Does this make sense?

    I’ve even thought, although I doubt that Nightingale would go for this, to text her that we will be picking her up for a visit (a few days in advance, of course) and then show up whether or not she replies. But that sounds kind of drastic and pushy, so maybe not.

  9. Yes, Kizzie, that family sounds more like an abusive husband than anything else to me, which is why I wouldn’t stop communicating because it is what they seem to want. It is also why I would make sure she realizes she has somewhere else to go to be ‘safe.’

  10. Hurting souls need to hear that they are loved. Keep showing your love to Chickadee, Kizzie; she won’t know what silence from you means.

    Piano lessons done, and I even had energy to type up and email all the assignments after lessons tonight, instead of delaying that to the next morning. Thank you for praying.

  11. Kizzie, my own opinion: I would not ask YA for information about your daughter, suggesting that you aren’t in touch with her; any communication with YA seems not to do anyone any good. I would have been inclined to “keep the lines open” with the household’s mother, though. In fact, if you can do something like take her a batch of cookies or a bunch of tulips, this might be a good time to do that. Even take some spring flowers to the mother of the household, and expect that you will be invited in for a visit. Nightingale is legally an adult and entitled to live where she wants to live, but family who live in the same town do visit each other, and it would be better if either your daughter or you were on terms that you could call the house or drop by.
