Prayer Requests 4-26-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 85

A psalm.

You, Lord, showed favor to your land;
    you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You forgave the iniquity of your people
    and covered all their sins.
You set aside all your wrath
    and turned from your fierce anger.

Restore us again, God our Savior,
    and put away your displeasure toward us.
Will you be angry with us forever?
    Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
Will you not revive us again,
    that your people may rejoice in you?
Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

I will listen to what God the Lord says;
    he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—
    but let them not turn to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
    that his glory may dwell in our land.

10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
    and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
    and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
    and prepares the way for his steps.

  1. NancyJill, so sorry about all the run-around with getting your husband’s test results. There’s little that causes me to be more impatient than stuff like that. Praying for you both in the interim.

    Kathaleena, what a terrible tragedy with that young girl dying like that. I have more thoughts but will keep them to myself.

    My cough ramped up overnight. Why? Was it because I was up and around more yesterday? It sure did feel wonderful, though, to sink my fingertips into the piano keys for the first time in six days and play some Bach. A small taste of heaven.

    6th Arrow’s event went well, she said. There was no recording, however. Hubby attended and later said, too, that daughter did well.

    Another day of no lessons. I’m taking each day as it comes. I texted my Tuesday people an hour or so ago that I wouldn’t be teaching today. They were the last students I saw last week, and know about my covid status and that they were here right before my symptoms started.

    Many of my piano families have been wonderfully patient, kind and compassionate through all of this. The mom of my newest student said she’s praying for me and my family. That’s always so heartwarming to find out when the families I don’t know well yet are fellow believers.

    Thank you for all your prayers and thoughtful sentiments, too, dear wanderers. It means a tremendous amount to me.

  2. Dear 6 I am thankful the family’s are understanding of your current situation. And that you had the strength to run your fingers up and down the keys! Moving around is probably a good thing to keep congestion at bay but over exertion seems would not be beneficial. Continuing to lift your needs before our Lord….

  3. Exactly.

    Praying for the real and NancyJill’s husband and Six this morning, as well as Debra and her husband as they continue down the path.

  4. I got the start date for my cancer treatments. It will be 8am on May 20th. Hopefully I will be healed from the biopsy/tumor removal by then. I am still seeing some small/tiny clots occasionally but the Dr. said that’s normal it’s just the area scabbing as it heals and they come off just like outside scabs do. It freaks me out but then my nurse talks me down. 🙂

    I have to get a urinalysis 2 days before each treatment to check for infection.

    Such a fun life I lead. 🥺

  5. We continually cover you in prayer Aj….asking the Lord to make His presence known to you as He walks this path with you. Be still and know can be really difficult at times….but when you look back one day…you will know. ❤️

  6. Praying for you, AJ.

    Today was a very good day. Almost no coughing most of the time, and I accomplished two important tasks — month-end business recordkeeping, and cleaning the turtle tank. The latter, typically a 45-minute job, took an hour and a half — I was moving slowly, not wanting to overdo. I was rewarded with the sight of a happy turtle swimming gently in her fresh water afterwards.

    I made myself a nice batch of gluten-free pancakes from a mix my husband bought for me yesterday. It’s been a long time since I’ve stood at the stove and cooked. My life is usually so busy with homeschooling and piano, and my girls are such excellent cooks, that I don’t ordinarily cook or bake anymore. It felt rather good to “be back” on this quiet day on which I probably could have returned to teaching, but didn’t.

    A day to savor the people, tasks and joys of home.

    Tomorrow I will teach one student, a zoom lesson. Slowly… slowly…

    Thank you for the part you’ve been playing as God brings recovery, friends. Praise be to our good and gracious Lord.
