Prayer Requests 10-30-21

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 84

How lovely is your dwelling place,
    Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the Lord;
   my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young—
   a place near your altar,
    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
    they are ever praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
    whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
    they make it a place of springs;
    the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
    till each appears before God in Zion.

Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;
    listen to me, God of Jacob.
Look on our shield, O God;
    look with favor on your anointed one.

10 Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
   I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
   no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,
    blessed is the one who trusts in you.

  1. Praise that i have been able to spend a few days with my mom. I was able to get some services straightened out with hospice.

    Urgent prayer need: Amy took Jeremy to ER this morning. His lungs are full of fluid and his liver is not working. His Spo2 saturation was 70. They are transferring him to covenant in Lubbock.

    My eldest daughter and her husband have been having issues. He went into a psych hospital and then into DTs. Their names are Julie and Keith.

    Thank you!

  2. I just learned through my friend Cindy that J will not be in church tomorrow. He and his wife JoAnn used to drive me home from church, and we’ve been good friends for over a decade, since we met at Hope Springs.

    Over the past year and a half or so, he has devolved into dementia. JoAnn has been determined to keep him at home, but it was getting harder with him not sleeping much (which meant she couldn’t sleep, either, as she had to keep an eye on him), and getting much worse with the confusion and questioning and refusing to do what she tried to get him to do. She was putting up with all of that, but now he has gotten combative, and that is something she cannot handle. It doesn’t help that he is very tall, over six feet, and she is barely over five feet, so he could really hurt her.

    JoAnn had to call 911 one day this past week as J got combative again, and he was taken to a dementia unit of a hospital. Now JoAnn and her daughters are looking for a placement for him in a nursing home.

    My heart hurts for both of them. Such a very sad situation.

  3. Janice – Since Hubby died, Cindy has been picking me up for church, and then – until I went back to church after the pandemic restrictions were loosened – J and JoAnn would drive me home. Since going back to church, with J and JoAnn dealing with their situation, Cindy has been driving me home, too. (She is fine with that. In fact, she did that for the first couple weeks after Hubby had died, and then J and JoAnn suggested taking me home. But Cindy has always let me know that she is available.)

  4. Prayers for Mumsee’s hubby; Amy, Jeremy, Julie, Keith, and RK’s mom; and JoAnn and J.

    Prayer request, for my dad (A), who has viral pneumonia. I’m surprised they released him from the ER last night to go back to the assisted living place. I guess I would have thought a 91-year-old with pneumonia, who had to be transported to the ER by ambulance because he was too weak to stand up, would have been hospitalized instead of sent back home at 11pm. My sister who took him back home after the ER discharge said that he had felt better after his bladder was catheterized, and that he felt no further pain after that point. He hadn’t been eating or drinking the last couple days, and was dehydrated.

    While waiting for test results, Dad was talking about his funeral, made reference to God, and quoted Paul, “to die is gain.” Yes it is, but I’m crying nonetheless, not ready to let him go yet, though I know he wants to go.

    Second prayer request, for my student L, a middle-schooler, who tested positive for covid Friday. A sweetheart of a girl. She was here at our house for one hour Wednesday evening, for her and her sister’s piano lessons. Her mom reported Friday that L’s covid symptoms started Thursday (though I heard L coughing a little while before they left that evening), so I’ve been exposed, too. Not so much my family, though, fortunately.

    Praise that we got to visit our newborn granddaughter the day before this covid exposure.

  5. Please pray for a man named Todd who is in the hospital and intubated due to Covid. Nightingale knows him from Cub Scouts, and also from football, I think. He and his wife have custody of grandchildren.

  6. Prayers, Kizzie.

    Update on my (6’s) dad: he is up and around and resumed eating and drinking today, thankfully. Surprisingly, and I don’t see this as a good thing at all, he took his meals today in the dining room with the other residents of the facility — when he has viral pneumonia! My mom thinks that isn’t contagious, but staff should certainly know that it is! My sister and I think the weekend help at the facility today maybe didn’t know he was at the ER last night and got diagnosed with that form of pneumonia. Sister is contacting their assisted living place about the situation. We know a report was brought from the ER to the facility last night, but apparently the right people haven’t been made aware of the situation and kept him isolated from healthy residents.

    We’re also concerned that Dad was released only a couple of hours after arriving at the ER. He had (still has?) elevated troponin levels, which I’ve heard can indicate a recent or in-progress heart attack. They checked his heart and said it was fine, but I’m wondering if elevated troponin levels could potentially be a signal of an impending heart attack, too? Anyone with more knowledge on this subject know? Sister and I were both thinking he should have been kept under observation for longer than he was.

    Thank you for praying.
