Prayer Requests 8-31-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 28

Of David.

To you, Lord, I call;
    you are my Rock,
    do not turn a deaf ear to me.
   For if you remain silent,
    I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
    as I call to you for help,
   as I lift up my hands
    toward your Most Holy Place.

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
    with those who do evil,
   who speak cordially with their neighbors
    but harbor malice in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds
    and for their evil work;
   repay them for what their hands have done
    and bring back on them what they deserve.

Because they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord
    and what his hands have done,
   he will tear them down
    and never build them up again.

Praise be to the Lord,
    for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
   My heart leaps for joy,
    and with my song I praise him.

The Lord is the strength of his people,
    a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
    be their shepherd and carry them forever.

  1. Several things:

    * My deaf friend Jess goes into the hospital for an induction of her second baby tonight. She’s two weeks overdue. Her first child, born during COVID, is healthy and charming, but his labor went on for 5 days before a C-section.

    *The Caldor fire is destroying a large swath of northern California. It’s descending toward South Lake Tahoe, a large community for vacationers, skiers, etc. It’s headed toward Nevada, which is on the other side of Lake Tahoe. It’s a madhouse right now as people attempt to flee on the only major road–two lanes either side–east.

    *Our dear friend Hill in Sicily has been training a beautiful black lab for several years as a service dog. Earlier this week, Cali unexpectedly ran out the door and bit a man walking down the street. He is threatening a lawsuit. Cali also pushed against a woman a few days later, and she, too, is threatening a lawsuit. Hill is greatly shaken, scared, and asking for prayer. She’s taking the dog to the vet–this is entirely out of character–and a dog trainer to see if she can find out why.

    Many are seeing this as spiritual warfare.

    Thank you.

  2. This upcoming Labor Day weekend, Nightingale will be camping out in Maine and hiking Mt. Washington – alone. She will leave on Friday (a normal day off for her, and this is her weekend off) and drive home on Monday (which she is taking as a vacation day). I am a bit worried about her doing all of that alone. Please pray for her safety in all of that, and also that in her solitude, the Holy Spirit will draw her to Jesus.

    So I will be childsitting Boy for much of that time, but his Gramma and Grampa are taking him from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, so I will have that time to myself, which will be very nice.

    But. . . although I would love that time to myself for my own time of solitude, even more so I would like for Chickadee to accept my invitation to visit me for some of that time. I was thinking that maybe she would feel more comfortable for her first visit in a long time to be just with me. And I would love to have some time alone with her.

    Now I am finding myself thinking that she probably won’t accept, and I probably won’t even hear back from her one way or the other, which is the way things have been going for too long. Then I tell myself that that is a lack of faith. But even so, even though I am trying to be realistic and not get my hopes up, I also know that God can indeed move upon her heart and bring her home for a visit. Please pray that – whether she comes to visit or not – God will indeed move upon her heart, mostly unto salvation.

    Thank you.

  3. Kizzie, the hiking could really be good for Nightingale. Mt Washington is in New Hampshire. Mt Katahdin is in Maine. I have hiked both. Years ago I went up Mt Washington alone, and hiked down again with my son who was hiking the whole Appalachian trail. Mt Washington was truly a lonely hike and I didn’t meet a soul until I got up to the camp in the clouds lodgef near the top. But Katahdin was surprisingly populated and a much easier hike… although I did not take enough water and was severely dehydrated by the time I returned. :–/

  4. Debra – Yeah, Nightingale and I were talking a little while ago, and she mentioned New Hampshire, and I said I thought she was going to Maine. 😀 (I assumed it was in Maine, because she loves going to Maine.)
