Prayer Requests 4-30-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
   yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?
    Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
    your splendor to their children.

17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.

  1. This afternoon I will be at J’s memorial service and the reception afterwards. Cindy is picking me up an hour early for us to help our mutual friend Christine set up for it.

    I am feeling anxiety about it. My mind knows that it will all be fine, but my mind isn’t listening to itself. And some of my anxiety is that I know I am being stupid to be anxious about this. It is embarrassing to even admit here.

    This is one aspect of my personality or temperament that I pray for God to change, for Him to give me peace in these matters that so easily cause me anxiety.

  2. Thinking some more about how I have been feeling, I realize that I am still in lingering grief over losing Hubby, grief over what is happening with Chickadee, and great frustration over Nightingale’s procrastination in some matters (as well as feeling burdened for my family to be saved). It all seems to be weighing down upon me recently. I’m sure that not sleeping enough for several recent nights is exacerbating it.

    Knowing myself and my tendencies, I am sure that I will come out of this within a couple weeks perhaps, but it’s the between now and then that I need prayer for. Thank you, and God bless.

  3. Please pray for J’s widow JoAnne as she continues her life without her beloved husband. There is something about having the memorial service that makes it so “final” and “real”. I remember being overwhelmed and exhausted after Leon’s memorial service, and I’m sure that she is feeling the same.

    Also for their two daughters, one son-in-law, and two grandchildren. One of the daughters does not know the Lord.

  4. Prayers for you, Kizzie. I know some about anxiety before events. But it is different for each person.

    May Jesus bear the heavy weight for you at this time. May your trust grow into realization of how He can and will carry you forward each time, over and over. It is in His strength that you are able.

    God, please I pray in Jesus’ name that You break the bonds of anxiety Kizzie feels sapping her these days, Amen

  5. Prayers for Michelle’s daughter facing a big decision. May He enlighten her in what she needs to know to choose wisely. May she fully trust in Him and His leading.

    Father God, You see all angles on the purchase. Please reveal all that must be known to choose wisely and then please let her rest with trust in You after the decision is made. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen

  6. Almost forgot to mention that Cindy’s husband Mike, who is in his 70s (Cindy is my age, 61, but Mike is older, maybe late 70s by now), fell and broke his hip recently. He is still in the hospital, and then will be transferred to rehab at the nursing home where Nightingale works. He has been there a few times over the past few years for various reasons, the last time being not too long ago.

    Please pray for a quicker-than-usual healing, and also for Cindy. (They are both devout believers.)

  7. Prayer for eldest son, Ben, who has been struggling with a fever for several days now. Tested negative for what that means. Severe cough. We have not heard from him this morning. He does have a wife and grandmother in law to look out for him there in Colorado. He is supposed to head to the EU this week so is all vaccinated up for what that means too. He has drifted from God though I think God still has a toe hold in there.

  8. So yesterday I was feeling pretty down, and berating myself for being a baby. This morning at church, God gave me a touch of grace that blessed me immensely. J and JoAnne’s daughter Jody gave me a hug and thanked me for helping out yesterday. I replied, “But I didn’t do anything!”

    Jody then said that just my presence, and that of the other ladies who were there early, too, took some pressure off of her, knowing that we were there if she needed us. She also noted that she had seen me talking to a couple people, and that I had led a lady downstairs to the restrooms.

    Maybe it seems like just a little thing, but that really helped me feel better, and “useful”. 🙂
