Prayer Requests 6-25-21

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 119:145-160

ק Qoph

145 I call with all my heart; answer me, Lord,
    and I will obey your decrees.
146 I call out to you; save me
    and I will keep your statutes.
147 I rise before dawn and cry for help;
    I have put my hope in your word.
148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,
    that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love;
    preserve my life, Lord, according to your laws.
150 Those who devise wicked schemes are near,
    but they are far from your law.
151 Yet you are near, Lord,
    and all your commands are true.
152 Long ago I learned from your statutes
    that you established them to last forever.

ר Resh

153 Look on my suffering and deliver me,
    for I have not forgotten your law.
154 Defend my cause and redeem me;
    preserve my life according to your promise.
155 Salvation is far from the wicked,
    for they do not seek out your decrees.
156 Your compassion, Lord, is great;
    preserve my life according to your laws.
157 Many are the foes who persecute me,
    but I have not turned from your statutes.
158 I look on the faithless with loathing,
    for they do not obey your word.
159 See how I love your precepts;
    preserve my life, Lord, in accordance with your love.
160 All your words are true;
    all your righteous laws are eternal.

  1. I am asking for prayer again as I have to make a response to family members today. I feel like I am in the middle of a pack of fighting dogs. I am stressed and grieving at the same time. I also know the Lord is my strength and wisdom and I need both from him.

  2. Having some anxiety about finally getting around to going back to church on Sunday. (There is a specific aspect that the anxiety has centered on.) Also feeling a general sense of confusion and being overwhelmed inside, but over what, I’m not entirely sure.

    Going along with that, I have had plans in my mind for quite a while of how to attack the projects that I need do around here, but each week I end up falling into my old rut of how I do things each day. I really need to step it up, but even thinking about that causes some anxiety. (Also, the plans are two different ways of doing what needs to be done, and I keep swinging from thinking one would be the better choice to thinking the other would be the better choice, which may be why I haven’t done either. I need some clarity or direction – or both.)

    Pretty much, I have been feeling like a mess lately (or what the younger folk call “a hot mess”). 😦

  3. I have been here infrequently lately. What are we praying for Roscuro about? I don’t see any prayer thread posts from her for the last week.

  4. I need to finish this crazy big book in about a week, and at times I’m finding it hard to stay focused. My goal is to finish all the writing and editing by tomorrow and then have next week to physically create the book (layout). I’m in the finishing stages of writing, but there’s still enough left that it’s stressful.

  5. Thank you for your prayers. It is such a help just to know people are praying when you feel so weak and helpless. I made a decision and challenged a person. I had one response and found that what I said was understood and necessary. I also was given an idea on what to do if my statement was ignored. That was a relief. Not that things are settled at all. I am beginning to wonder if my mother will ever have a memorial service. I would never have believed any of this if anyone had even suggested such a thing a few years ago. How God is working in other’s lives is something I cannot know. I know how grateful I am to have come to know the Lord and be growing in grace.

  6. Husband was closer today than he has ever been to being hit head on by a careless driver. Husband hugged the slim shoulder of the road next to the guardrail over the bridge. Foolish drive passing two cars on a hill, double yellow line. There are have 3 serious crashes in this area in the past 2 weeks….thanking the Lord for sparing husband and his brother.
    This evening as daughter was driving on interstate coming home from work her car just stopped. She was in the slow lane but could not move the car! Kind young men came along as I was on the phone with her and tried helping her. Others stopped helping her as well. They got her out of the lane and a State Patrol officer came along to keep her safe. Tow truck arrived at the same time husband arrived. They got the car to the auto shop and it started right up. No reason found for this chaos but we are thanking our Lord for her protection and the kindness of strangers, tow truck driver and Police officer….

  7. Kathaleena, it is good to know that God is in these things with us and knows about them ahead of time. He is our source of wisdom and contentment. People will be people.
