Prayer Requests 5-14-21

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

  1. Just a brief update on Cyrus, but first I want to say that I am 100% convinced that the effective, fervent prayers of those made righteous by Jesus’ blood IS prevailing, and that Cyrus is in the process of receiving a miracle from God.

    When I visited last night, Cyrus was peacefully sleeping on his back with head elevated to a not-quite sitting position (noteworthy during this nightmare). His nurse said he was in and out of consciousness, but he is able to communicate some and follow commands. That surprised me as I thought he would be kept under deep sedation. I sat down beside his bed and just waited, looking at his face. Eventually he opened his eyes and just stared at me, like he didn’t know if I was a dream or real. I could see the drugs in his eyes, but he knew me and was glad to see me.

    The ventilator is doing its job and he is tolerating it much, much better than I expected.
    Before he went on it, 2 doctors said he would not come off alive. Now one is talking to me about what his limitations will be when he comes home (though no one knows when that will be).

    I am allowed 4 consecutive hours to visit the ICU, so I requested from 10pm-2am. I chose those hours because of my work schedule, but if it disrupts his sleep too much or causes him agitation I can change it to the late morning hours before I go to work.

    I am increasing my requests for prayer from everyone I know who prays until this miracle is manifested. Cyrus is being healed, restored, made whole and will come home that his testimony will be a praise and glory to God in all the earth. I don’t know what our life will look like in the future, but I know that it will never go back to just what it was. That’s ok. God is in our present, always.

    It has been some months now, but my friend Karen’s mom, in her 90s had Covid and was not expected to live. They were given a miracle. Praise God who is still in the miracle making business.

  6. Thank you for your update, Debra. I am so uplifted by the faithfulness of our Lord! Many thanks for the reminder of His mercy.

    I want all of you faithful prayer warriors to lift in prayer the mom of my 3-year-old student. He is my first student of the day on Fridays, and I just got a text from his mom. She wrote with an apology about having to cancel the lesson today — she has to be admitted to the hospital with possible surgery.

    This family has endured a lot of medical trials this year — a complicated birth in January, resulting in an emergency C-sec; two positive covid cases in the household after their nanny contracted it the week after the baby’s birth (Mom, 3-year-old, and newborn baby didn’t get it; Dad and 1-year-old did); and now this.

    Thank you so much for praying for L and her family.

  7. Debra – As I read your updates, I am taken back to my own husband’s time of crisis in the hospital, and remembering well the emotions of that time, which I have hesitated to mention since we all know how that came out. Even so, that same year, two of my friends came *thisclose* to losing their husbands, but God granted them miracles. I am praying that for you and Cyrus. (And I understand pretty well what you are going through.)
