Prayer Requests 7-8-21

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”

  1. Not a request, but a comment on prayer that seems more appropriate here:
    I was sitting in the front room thinking?praying about some things.
    I wondered if God considered such prayers:
    Then it occurred to me that a mother with five children can and does give individual attention to each as needed.

  2. Wonderful thought, Chas. To God we are all like only children in that we do not have to wait our turn for His attention. We do have to wait for Him to work out His best plans for us. He has purpose in your being here, Chas. It’s all about Him, and He loves us through what seems like long waiting for His best plans to materialize. He keeps me curious as to what He is up to daily.

  3. I find that when I am thinking or talking to myself, which I do a lot, it often or usually morphs into talking to God, often in a “chatting” sort of way.

  4. Off to another dentist appointment in a bit, then the ultrasound of my leg this afternoon.

    In between, a writer friend is calling and we’ll be discussing an opportunity we managed to contrive between ourselves and some instrumental people.

    (Oh, and while I’m on the writing subject, the Lettie bio proposal is being examined by the dream publishers).

    I’m now coming down with a cold–for the first time in at least 17 months and I feel awful, didn’t sleep last night, etc. No fever, just a thick throat, and a not-so-sharp head after taking Nyquil at 4 this morning.

    I’d love to be able to feel well enough to take a walk again someday . . . It’s been nearly a month. 😦

  5. Continued/renewed prayers for my neighbor Shirley. She’s had two lengthy appointments this week so I called her today to catch up and she’s felling very discouraged, said the therapists and others aren’t giving her a whole lot of hope. It has been 3 months since the stroke and I did read where the window for the most recovery is in that timeframe, from there, things slow down.

    So I’m guessing that’s what she’s hearing now but she said she had a meltdown last night, just started crying as the situation is hitting her right now. She still can’t get to the bathroom on her own and the muscles in her right hand are freezing up despite regular workouts. Her knees are much worse (they both have needed replacement surgery for years now, something she’d put off). So she still can’t really walk even with the walker — beyond a few steps.

    Pray for some encouragement, perhaps from a second PT opinion. She said her ex-Marine husband is sort of shutting down over some of this, it’s a strain physically and emotionally on him, too. They aren’t believers.

    They’re planning to go out for lunch today so i got the Jeep moved down to the street — I’m hoping that will help, just getting out to enjoy something for a change with no appointments (but she has yet another one on Friday).
