Prayer Requests 8-30-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
   The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
   it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
   though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
   to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
   he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
   at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
   Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. My daughter’s friend, Bill, has passed away. His wife, Thea, thank us for our prayers. She reminds us he is perfectly healed now and in a better place. She and her children are grieving being without him, of course. She has a strong faith, which is such a blessing in times like these. Thank you all who prayed.

  2. Many people have been comforted from the other verses in this wonderful psalm. For example, the verse about being rejected by mother and father. Many who accept Christ or the truth of the bible have been rejected by loved ones (Jesus himself!) and are encouraged by those verses. God never rejects or forsakes us. What a promise!

  4. Amen to all above.

    Kathaleena, my condolences on Bill’s passing. I’ve been praying for him, and am so sorry to hear that.

    Prayers for wisdom requested as I contemplate meeting, by the parents’ request, with the 2.5-year-old sister of my 3.5-year-old student for a trial lesson and a possible music/piano experience thereafter. I had done a trial lesson with her brother the week of his third birthday and signed him on right away. He is the youngest student I’ve ever had, and now she might just break that record! 🙂

    But I’m getting ahead of myself.

    She did come to her brother’s trial lesson 10 months ago and REALLY wanted to play the piano then already! Now she is playing it at home and sings at the same time. Dad feels she is ready and would like me to evaluate her. I’m pretty sure I will, but will need wisdom to plan an appropriate assessment/trial lesson, which will also include some forethought into how I would approach ongoing lessons with a child her age.

    Thanks for the prayers.
