Prayer Requests 9-15-21

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget Ajissun and the folks in The Gambia.

Anyone else?

Psalm 42

As the deer pants for streams of water,
    so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
    When can I go and meet with God?
My tears have been my food
    day and night,
   while people say to me all day long,
    “Where is your God?”
These things I remember
    as I pour out my soul:
   how I used to go to the house of God
    under the protection of the Mighty One
   with shouts of joy and praise
    among the festive throng.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
   Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

My soul is downcast within me;
    therefore I will remember you
   from the land of the Jordan,
    the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep
    in the roar of your waterfalls;
   all your waves and breakers
    have swept over me.

By day the Lord directs his love,
    at night his song is with me—
    a prayer to the God of my life.

I say to God my Rock,
    “Why have you forgotten me?
   Why must I go about mourning,
    oppressed by the enemy?”
10 My bones suffer mortal agony
    as my foes taunt me,
   saying to me all day long,
    “Where is your God?”

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
   Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

  1. This is a little different prayer request for BG. Today I am adding her stepmother to the request. BG is living with her dad and stepmother.
    This past Saturday, SM(stepmother) called Nana and asked her to come out to the house to help her with G. She thought he was having a heart attack and he would not let her call 911. Nana went and it turned ugly. He yelled at his mother to SHUT UP. The man I was married to was difficult but he would have NEVER said this to his mother.
    BG has been telling me little things for a couple of months now about what is going on with him. I have been honest with her where he is concerned. When I was married to him, I could do nothing right. He doesn’t “shift change” easily. We were unable to have spur of the moment plans. It was an ordeal for me to have people over because they would “mess up the house”….well there are a whole lot of things I dealt with when we were married, no use to go over that.
    From what BG has been telling me he is multiple times worse than when we were married. I promised never to say anything negative to her father when we divorced. Now she is coming to me and I am telling her bits and pieces. When he is doing to SM is 10’s of times worse than what he did to me. My sympathy is with her because I know what it was like for me and he has only escalated. Last night when BG was here I told her if the opportunity presented itself to tell SM I understood and was on her side. BG looked at me funny and said she had almost already told her.
    I don’t want to be the interfering ex-wife but he is also the father of my child. I am VERY concerned about him. He has done some irrational things lately that the man I was married to never would have done. He shot a cat because it was pregnant. I do know that he has become a heavy drinker. I know that he is on a medication that can cause aggression, and an anti-anxiety medication, and that he has added something else into the mix. I really am afraid he is going to hurt himself or someone else….but I am only the ex-wife.

  2. My heart is hurting over the scenario you described, Kim. I am saddened to know that BG has to see this decline in her dad when she is only in h er r twenties. Truly heartbreaking. Lifting the burden and ask God to act to bring order out of chaos. He is able. He is sovereign. This decline is probably partly from how Covid seems to have escalated all of our problems. M u y God give you strength to be the stable and safe place in BGs life through this stormy time.
