Prayer Requests 3-25-21

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 44

We have heard it with our ears, O God;
    our ancestors have told us
   what you did in their days,
    in days long ago.
With your hand you drove out the nations
    and planted our ancestors;
   you crushed the peoples
    and made our ancestors flourish.
It was not by their sword that they won the land,
    nor did their arm bring them victory;
   it was your right hand, your arm,
    and the light of your face, for you loved them.

You are my King and my God,
    who decrees victories for Jacob.
Through you we push back our enemies;
    through your name we trample our foes.
I put no trust in my bow,
    my sword does not bring me victory;
but you give us victory over our enemies,
    you put our adversaries to shame.
In God we make our boast all day long,
    and we will praise your name forever.

But now you have rejected and humbled us;
    you no longer go out with our armies.
10 You made us retreat before the enemy,
    and our adversaries have plundered us.
11 You gave us up to be devoured like sheep
    and have scattered us among the nations.
12 You sold your people for a pittance,
    gaining nothing from their sale.

13 You have made us a reproach to our neighbors,
    the scorn and derision of those around us.
14 You have made us a byword among the nations;
    the peoples shake their heads at us.
15 I live in disgrace all day long,
    and my face is covered with shame
16 at the taunts of those who reproach and revile me,
    because of the enemy, who is bent on revenge.

17 All this came upon us,
    though we had not forgotten you;
    we had not been false to your covenant.
18 Our hearts had not turned back;
    our feet had not strayed from your path.
19 But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals;
    you covered us over with deep darkness.

20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
    or spread out our hands to a foreign god,
21 would not God have discovered it,
    since he knows the secrets of the heart?
22 Yet for your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.

23 Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep?
    Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever.
24 Why do you hide your face
    and forget our misery and oppression?

25 We are brought down to the dust;
    our bodies cling to the ground.
26 Rise up and help us;
    rescue us because of your unfailing love.

  1. Nineteen is off in a couple of hours, to the oral surgeon to have her four wisdom teeth extracted at the dentist’s request. Pray that it goes well and she cooperates post surgery as well.

  2. And her caregivers. Husband is off to his infusion this weekend.

    Kizzie, the last dozen times we have had it done, they did all four. But it depends on the situation too. I think oral surgeons just get it done. Dentists seem to do two at a time though that may have changed.

  3. I had it done at the dentist’s office. They were simple extractions. Very easy, and I may not have even needed aspirin. I still remember that large hole that was left until it all healed over.

  4. My youngest had all four done at once. She had no problems. i had one pulled in the dentist’s office and it was very quickly done. That was the tooth previously broken (accidently by my three year old) and the root was very straight.

    i have a slight fever after having the second vaccine shot yesterday. Sore a bit, too, but otherwise fine.

  5. If the teeth aren’t impacted, I suspect they can be pulled straight out. I, and my children, all had to go under anesthesia to have them removed–4 at once and home to moan on the sofa all day.
