Prayer Requests 7-20-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 140

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers;
    protect me from the violent,
who devise evil plans in their hearts
    and stir up war every day.
They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s;
    the poison of vipers is on their lips.

Keep me safe, Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
    protect me from the violent,
    who devise ways to trip my feet.
The arrogant have hidden a snare for me;
    they have spread out the cords of their net
    and have set traps for me along my path.

I say to the Lord, “You are my God.”
    Hear, Lord, my cry for mercy.
Sovereign Lord, my strong deliverer,
    you shield my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant the wicked their desires, Lord;
    do not let their plans succeed.

Those who surround me proudly rear their heads;
    may the mischief of their lips engulf them.
10 May burning coals fall on them;
    may they be thrown into the fire,
    into miry pits, never to rise.
11 May slanderers not be established in the land;
    may disaster hunt down the violent.

12 I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor
    and upholds the cause of the needy.
13 Surely the righteous will praise your name,
    and the upright will live in your presence.

  1. Hello fellow Wanderers! I have finally sat down long enough to write an update on everything that has been happening. But first, Cyrus and I want to acknowledge all the support we have had from you, our local church family, and so many others. We know that we have been supernaturally strengthened for this ordeal; we have felt the support in tangible ways.

    Cyrus finally came home last Tuesday. He’s on fairly heavy oxygen but still managed to climb the 4 stairs to our front door. He was weak, but all was going well until Friday night when he became nauseated and bloated in the stomach. On Saturday an ambulance took him to the hospital where he had emergency surgery. The surgeon said his gallbladder was “dead, necrotic, gangrenous” and it was removed just in time. Apparently it had been deteriorating unknown for a long time and the hospital feeding tube diet he had for many weeks had acerbated the problem. That would explain the upset stomach and bloating he had most of the time while being tube fed. Anyway, the surgery was 100% successful, and Cyrus is back home and very energetic.

    As far as oxygen use and strength, the doctors have said it will be a long slow process if he makes it back to normal at all. But then again, 4 doctors had told us he would not get off the ventilator ever, yet I am privileged to see God’s walking talking miracle daily!

    I believe Cyrus will be back to normal in God’s due time, and while that happens, we continue to work and prepare to go through whatever doors the Lord opens up for us. And if I live to be 100, I will never stop thanking Him for his mercy and grace, and for His wonderful, WONDERFUL praying people. :–)

    Still Trusting Him,
