Prayer Requests 5-27-21

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 103

Of David.

Praise the Lord, my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord works righteousness
    and justice for all the oppressed.

He made known his ways to Moses,
    his deeds to the people of Israel:
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
    you mighty ones who do his bidding,
    who obey his word.
21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
    you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works
    everywhere in his dominion.

   Praise the Lord, my soul.

  3. I have this psalm memorized and it is one I often recite when I find myself awake in the middle of the night. Such comfort to remember who God is.

  4. I sent an article to older daughter down there yesterday, on a nine year old who was born with only two percent of his brain due to a cyst and had all sorts of other complications. He was not expected to walk or talk or eat by himself. He is overcoming most of it and had something like eighty percent of his brain by age one. Educated guessing is not always correct, and there is God.

  6. Update on Mom.

    The cancer is back, this time in the liver and bowel. She has an obstruction in the bowel as well. The small fractures in her vertebrae are now breaks. She also has 3 hernias in different places.

    Obviously this is not good news and has hit the girls pretty hard. They, the rest of the family, and Betty, could use a lot of prayer please. 😦

  7. I feel tears forming considering it all. So much suffering. Prayers that God’s love will overwhelm the pains, sufferings, emotional jolts, anxieties, wondering waits, and inescapable evidence of the fallen world we live in. Sending hugs to all and prayers to God.

  8. Prayers, AJ, that sounds very difficult.

    My neighbor Shirley had a doctor’s appt this morning and when they got back they were sitting in the backyard and she called to invite me over. We had an optional “diversity” staff phone call at 1 (and I was working on a story I still needed to turn in by 3), but I decided it was way more important to dash next door and spend some time with my neighbor now that she felt up to a visitor other than family instead of joining yet another (3rd of the day) staff phone call. I’d left her Mexican “sleeping cat” planter and her card and a flowering plant (for the planter) in their backyard while they were gone, she seemed to like that very much.

    She seems on the road to recovery, her speech actually was very good — they’re concentrating right now on her right hand which is still swollen and does not have controllable movement but good progress is being made. Her right arm overall is generally numb, but has also gained movement over the past few weeks.

    So we had a good visit in their pretty backyard, their two big Labs joined us — she said she’s having to show her husband how to pay the household bills, he literally has never had to deal with any of that and is baffled. She said she usually pays by phone but he’ll have to pay with checks for now, though I suggested one of her sons or daughters-in-law can maybe set them up with online banking and bill pay. They’re not super computer savvy and she’s wary of doing anything financial online, but I told her I’d been doing online banking and bill paying for years and have never had a problem, it’s actually only been a huge help in keeping track of things and it makes paying bills super easy and fast.

    PT and OT therapists are coming to the house several times a week to continue to work with her, so I’m praying she’ll overcome many of the after-effects — though life will never feel the same, of course. It was quite a scare.
