Prayer Requests 7-31-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord.

   Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

   Praise the Lord.

  1. Thanks for your prayers for the arrows household and my parents. Janice (and Kathaleena previously this week), thank you for also mentioning crime in cities, to remember those who reside in metro areas with high crime rates. I have several relatives in a major midwestern city with increasing crime.

    Along those lines, I’d like to also request prayer for protection against crime in lightly-populated areas, too. Our small, mostly rural county saw a triple homicide last week in a remote area. Three bodies, shot execution-style, were found by quarry workers reporting to work early one weekday morning. Prayers are needed, I’m sure, for those who found the bodies, and especially for the companion of the three victims, who was witness to the shootings but whose life was spared. One of the two alleged murderers reportedly got in the back seat of her car and forced her to drive to the quarry just minutes before he killed her three companions there.

  2. I have to ask for prayer again for my family. My brother was killed in a two car accident about 30 miles away last night. The other driver was taken to hospital without life threatening injuries. Brother’s truck flipped and he was thrown from the vehicle. A friend on the police force who identified him said it was not pretty. So far my dad is taking it better than expected. Brother’s daughter was hysterical with grief last night when I talked to her. She’s an only child (late 20s) and has a solid marriage with 2 young children of her own and 2 step children who are almost like her own. They have attended church sporadically but are not serious believers. I’m going over to see her and her husband this afternoon to help make arrangements. I could use wisdom.

  3. I am so sorry to hear that, Debra. God has prepared you with the Words to say. I am praying for ears to hear and heart to soften and you to be confident in His Spirit giving you the Words.

  4. Oh Debra, I’m so sorry.

    Tragedy, hardship and grief seem so prevalent right now for so many, you certainly are shouldering your share. God knows.

    Praying for you, sister.

  5. Sad to hear that news, Debra. It’s so difficult to go through ordeal after ordeal. Praying for God to bolster you in His strength and give you Holy Spirit led words to address all with whom you must speak. God is with you. May you feel the blessing of His supernatural love that spills forth to bless others through us. Praying for all in your family to gain knowledge of Jesus and know His live and comfort.

  6. 6 Arrows, that is a horrible crime event you described. There is no place safe from it these days even though people in less populated areas sometimes feel the illusion of being safer. Prayers for law enforcement to apprehend and the justice system to work properly in your area to lessen the brazeness of criminals. May God protect us and all our loved ones with angels standing guard 24/7. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen

  7. Oh, Debra, I am so sorry. Praying for you and all the family.

    6, I agree, we’ve had several murders over the past few years quite close to where we live. Mostly family disputes, sadly.

    Praying for the rest as well.

  8. Debra, I am very sorry. Sorrowing with you, sister.

    Janice and Kare, so true. We have fewer people here, but evil lurks everywhere.

    I am relieved that the dead-end road on which we live, at the back of which is another quarry access point, was not the place chosen to be the site of the murders. I’ll have to admit that would have been mighty close for comfort — under a mile away, rather than the 10 or so miles away that it was — even though before the suspects were arrested, it was pretty clear from early on that the general public was not at risk, due to the strong appearance of a targeted hit, and soon after, investigators learned that the victims knew the perpetrators.

    Praise God for the excellent cooperation between various law enforcement agencies in finding the (alleged) assailants. Six city police departments, including ours, sheriffs of twelve different counties in our state, numerous others, and five days later, arrests were made and charges brought.

    God is ever in control, and in Him is our peace.
