Prayer Requests 1-31-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 10

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
   His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
   He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
   The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.

16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

  1. Summer camp registration opens tomorrow morning – it will be a long day for me. I’m praying for a smooth process.

    Please pray that children will register and that they will have ears to hear when they come in summer.

  2. Hard to believe, with the snow and cold. But yesterday they were talking about VBS so it makes sense. Praying for you, Kare, wisdom and time use. And for the campers to hear and do. And for the workers, love and patience and ears.

  3. We’re debating VBS here as well. We don’t even really know how many people attend our church anymore what with all the C-closures. The children’s church yesterday was 5 kids. 😦

  4. Okay, she turned it around. She asked if she is crazy and how to fix it. I told her Jesus tells us to take every thought captive so if she would try that, it would help. When she feels like being mean, to stop and not do it. She gave it a try. Then went to bed early saying she was getting sleepy, gave me a hug and told me she is glad she is back. I told her me too. Thank You, God.
