Prayer Requests 5-25-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.

  2. Thank you for all your prayers. I survived the long weekend, but am exhausted. I’m at the cardiologist’s office (long story but I was having some concerning symptoms before surgery) and just had a stress test. The speed quickens every three minutes and the second time it sped up, I couldn’t speed up with it a slid off the back, just like one of these comedic scenes. The technician saw what was happening but couldn’t get there fast enough to stop it. It was humiliating and funny at the same time.

  3. A man in my church is having bypass surgery today. He almost died several years ago so I know this feels traumatic. Please pray for H and wife T. Thank you.

    Son will soon have his 3rd contact with one school about employment. Pray for God’s best choice.

    Thank you for praying.

  4. From Pepper Basham’s Facebook post regarding the death of her brother, the missing hiker:

    “This is not to sound maudlin, because I don’t feel maudlin. I am not hopeless or in despair. I’m grieving in all the healthy ways a person might grieve, I suppose. I’ve felt it before with my sweet granny, but different.

    This is just an observation from my own heart, but with grief, you want the world to stop so you can somehow prepare for the next minute. And then the next minute. It’s like if you had an extra second or two to prepare, you’d be able to wrap your mind around all the feelings. But Things still continue on without stopping. Life, work, cleaning up breakfast dishes and picking up a few groceries. It’s such a strange “fog” of minutes that add up to hours of getting things done or getting nothing done at all.

    And…at the same time I’m thankful for the “something” to do. For the minutes that distract my thoughts a little while.

    And then when the fog clears and I’m reminded that this is all very real, I close my eyes, pray, remind myself of God’s goodness and sovereignty, hug one of my favorite people, maybe eat some chocolate, and then I do the next thing.

    Because God’s given me the foggy moments and the clear ones. The right now. And I’m grateful. He’s right here in the middle of the right now, whether I end up actually getting those groceries or not. He is near. And He loves Big.

    So there’s this quietness. A gentle quietness. Even in the fog. And the hurt.

    Because God is still here. And he is still good.”

  5. The surgery update on the heart bypass was suppose to be at 4:30 and it is almost 6:30 with no update. This is agonizing. They said a triple bypass that might turn into a quadruple so maybe that is why there’s no update yet. They went through so much in the past, and now this. I am continuing on in prayer. The wife use to be my Sunday school teacher some years back.

  6. Phos, I got bucked off a treadmill when I took some sort of workplace fitness class at the college. It was merely a lack of coordination on my part. Embarrassing though.
