Prayer Requests 2-2-22

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 12

A psalm of David.

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore;
    those who are loyal have vanished from the human race.
Everyone lies to their neighbor;
    they flatter with their lips
    but harbor deception in their hearts.

May the Lord silence all flattering lips
    and every boastful tongue—
those who say,
    “By our tongues we will prevail;
    our own lips will defend us—who is lord over us?”

“Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan,
    I will now arise,” says the Lord.
    “I will protect them from those who malign them.”
And the words of the Lord are flawless,
    like silver purified in a crucible,
    like gold refined seven times.

You, Lord, will keep the needy safe
    and will protect us forever from the wicked,
who freely strut about
    when what is vile is honored by the human race.

  1. Thankful for you prayers….husband decided it would be better for him to speak to her directly and not the both of us…no ganging up on her. He said she was not surprised and she suspected we would be speaking to her. She did not venture out of her room after the talk but she was told she must emerge from her room after work and that she needed to eat dinner with us and spend a couple hours each evening downstairs. He spoke to her with grace yet directly. We shall see what her response is today….continuing to ask the Lord to soften her heart and to desire His direction in her life….thank you again….

  2. I was agoraphobic as a young woman, shortly after graduating from high school. What helped me was the advice from a psychiatric social worker I saw for a while. The method he used was similar to cognitive behavioral therapy. (Or maybe that was it, but he never used a name for it.)

    He would give me simple “homework assignments” to little-by-little expose myself to going out in public. One question he told me to think about was “What’s the worst that can happen?” because usually “the worst” is not as bad as our fear makes us imagine. Fortunately for me, it didn’t take too long for me to recover, especially after I got a job.

    Maybe this is not your daughter’s problem at all, but I thought it was worth a mention. Praying for her.

  3. Good to hear, NancyJill. Sounds like a wise plan.

    Kizzie, sounds like the plan is addressing that possibility. But I suspect she has been pulled into the internet.

  4. Well she jumped in the shower after work then came down but didn’t eat “with” us…warmed up her pizza and didn’t say much. She then went down to the basement and turned on the tv…we got out a game and called her up…explaining to her it was time out of her room to socialize with us…not to just go to another room alone. There was some resentment felt but she made it through her 2 hours. It’s going to take some tenacity on our part…and she is very stubborn and has prideful attitude….asking the Lord to soften her heart.
    Honestly anything we would suggest as in seeing a counselor would be met with a “no way”…unless the Lord should so move on her heart…
    The internet will be turned off at midnight…
