Prayer Requests 10-19-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 73

A psalm of Asaph.

Surely God is good to Israel,
    to those who are pure in heart.

But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
    I had nearly lost my foothold.
For I envied the arrogant
    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

They have no struggles;
    their bodies are healthy and strong.
They are free from common human burdens;
    they are not plagued by human ills.
Therefore pride is their necklace;
    they clothe themselves with violence.
From their callous hearts comes iniquity;
    their evil imaginations have no limits.
They scoff, and speak with malice;
    with arrogance they threaten oppression.
Their mouths lay claim to heaven,
    and their tongues take possession of the earth.
10 Therefore their people turn to them
    and drink up waters in abundance.
11 They say, “How would God know?
    Does the Most High know anything?”

12 This is what the wicked are like—
    always free of care, they go on amassing wealth.

13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure
    and have washed my hands in innocence.
14 All day long I have been afflicted,
    and every morning brings new punishments.

15 If I had spoken out like that,
    I would have betrayed your children.
16 When I tried to understand all this,
    it troubled me deeply
17 till I entered the sanctuary of God;
    then I understood their final destiny.

18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;
    you cast them down to ruin.
19 How suddenly are they destroyed,
    completely swept away by terrors!
20 They are like a dream when one awakes;
    when you arise, Lord,
    you will despise them as fantasies.

21 When my heart was grieved
    and my spirit embittered,
22 I was senseless and ignorant;
    I was a brute beast before you.

23 Yet I am always with you;
    you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.

27 Those who are far from you will perish;
    you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28 But as for me, it is good to be near God.
    I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;
    I will tell of all your deeds.

  1. Praying, Mumsee.

    Rejoice with us. Job offer coming this morning. Our girl is coming home.

    I realized this morning while I was praying for her that she’s had nothing but disappointment for everything she’s applied for the last few years. She’s had to guard her hopes and emotions. This is cathartic.

    Thanks to all who have prayed for her.

  2. Oh, Mumsee, are you dealing with an illness with “the swings?” You think you are better and then you are worse, like a yoyo? So sorry to hear it is being so rough on you. May God lift all the illness out of your body and out of all the other bodies residing at your address. It time to declare victory over that evil colony of virus germs in the name of Jesus, the Lord of Mumsee, Mike and all of us Wanderers. I lift this needed victory to our conquering God, again, in Jesus’ name, Amen

  3. Praising the Lord, Michelle! He is mighty to provide, but the waits can push us to extraordinary tests of faith.

    I hope our son can soon have a more secure position without it being a rerun of frantically sending out applications, writing essays to hopefully get hired, rounds of interviews, etc. annually, along with moving every year. I guess I hope they might appreciate him so much where he is that he would be offered a more permanent position. If anyone wants to pray for that, if it is in God’s will, that’d be appreciated.

  4. Home but very unwell. No, that the illness, car sick. And I was driving. I suspect the ears are involved.
    Sinus infection, fluid in the lungs, way high blood pressure. I am medicated like an old person now. Wait. I am an old person! Never thought that would happen! But it is all temporary.
    Still very sick so going to bed. Boise sick.
