Prayer Requests 2-17-22

It’s Thursday, so don’t forget to pray for Jo, her students, and the people of PNG.

Anyone else?

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
   The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
   it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
   though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
   to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
   he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
   at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
   Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. Thank you.

    No surgery last night after all. The pediatrician (who actually lives across the street from them), has never seen an injury like this one and decided M should see a specialist this morning.

    His reasoning is the larynx is cartilage and how do you “set” or repair that? The other problem, of course, is there’s not a lot of blood flow to that part of the body and how long will it take to heal?

    I spent the afternoon into the early evening driving the 9-year-old around the county for her team practices. She’s very pragmatic and whenever the subject of her brother came up–E asking penetrating questions–we prayed together for him. That was good and it helped both of us calm down.

    In the meantime, M–I think I told you he’s a 6’6″ athlete– wanted pizza for dinner and managed to eat it. His voice sounds a little rusty, but he can talk and communicate. His brain is working and he was doing his homework.

    Thanks be to God.

    M’s big concern is he wants to play baseball–he’s slated as a freshman to make either the JV or varsity teams.

    (Grandmother hides her head and thinks of puppies and unicorns).

    So, that will be the question today with the specialist–how can he be protected so he can play?

    He’s a pitcher and a first baseman.

    Thanks be to God, though, it could have been so much worse–or so it looks this morning.

    And thank you, so much, for your prayers.

  2. Thankful for answered prayers M….that sounded like an awful injury…asking the Lord to heal him quickly and find solutions for him to play again.

    We have sent a message to our old doc and friend who moved away, asking for his recommendations for the two areas needed specialists. We trust him as he was not only our doc but our friend. Praying he will be willing to give us his insights and recommendations as the Lord leads.

  3. My friend Cindy (the lady who drives me to church) sent a prayer request for her husband Mike to several of us from church. He has been having a problem with his back, and went to the ER earlier this week. He is currently in the hospital because he has been suffering from some nausea and hasn’t been able to eat or drink for a few days. He is scheduled for an endoscopy tomorrow.

    When they have dealt with the nauseas issue, he will be sent to a rehab center for his back. Cindy says he has compression of his lower spine.
