Prayer Requests 7-22-21

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 142

I cry aloud to the Lord;
    I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
I pour out before him my complaint;
    before him I tell my trouble.

When my spirit grows faint within me,
    it is you who watch over my way.
   In the path where I walk
    people have hidden a snare for me.
Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
    no one is concerned for me.
   I have no refuge;
    no one cares for my life.

I cry to you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my refuge,
    my portion in the land of the living.”

Listen to my cry,
    for I am in desperate need;
   rescue me from those who pursue me,
    for they are too strong for me.
Set me free from my prison,
    that I may praise your name.
   Then the righteous will gather about me
    because of your goodness to me.

  1. I like to read the Psalms, and go along with them.
    However, they all seem to go back to personal attacks, when it may not be that at all.
    Sometimes issues of the day, sickness, business, etc, are more pressing.

  2. I think the psalms show us many different emotions, anger, despair, sadness, fear, jealousy; all with which we deal here on earth. Some we can tie to what is going on in the psalmist’s lives, so some are personal attacks. Many are comforting, but certainly not all. Then again, all scripture is not meant to be comforting.

  3. And in that, we find comfort!

    Prayer here as Mike heads out to Boise on the bus with thirteen (it is her turn) eto retrieve the vehicle he left there when flying to Florida. If she gets her room clean. That leaves me with fifteen and nineteen. Prayer that I be able to hold my tongue as she taunts and pokes. Our current plan is for me to not engage at all. It appears to be working. Though if he steps out of the room, she tends to start a few feeble jabs. Only to be met with a wall of silence. It has toned her down quite a bit. If I give her any response at all, she escalates. So, prayer for that whole tongue thing.

  4. Thank you. We got home from dropping off husband, we did not know if daughter was home or not. She had told Mike she was going to sleep (she stays up late “cleaning” her room) and did not come out for dinner at noonish. About three, I heard a car pull up and son said he heard her yell, “hello, mom, goodbye” so evidently one of her workers came and got her. Not the one we were expecting so she probably canceled one and got the other. No idea when she will return. I suggested to husband that if she continues being so secretive about her coming and going, she may need the phone removed. But she did text him to let him know she was with a worker. And it did not involve poking at me so all is good. Tongue behaved just fine. Thanks again.
