Prayer Requests 6-7-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:105-120

נ Nun

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
    a light on my path.
106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it,
    that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 I have suffered much;
    preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108 Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth,
    and teach me your laws.
109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,
    I will not forget your law.
110 The wicked have set a snare for me,
    but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111 Your statutes are my heritage forever;
    they are the joy of my heart.
112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees
    to the very end.

ס Samekh

113 I hate double-minded people,
    but I love your law.
114 You are my refuge and my shield;
    I have put my hope in your word.
115 Away from me, you evildoers,
    that I may keep the commands of my God!
116 Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live;
    do not let my hopes be dashed.
117 Uphold me, and I will be delivered;
    I will always have regard for your decrees.
118 You reject all who stray from your decrees,
    for their delusions come to nothing.
119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;
    therefore I love your statutes.
120 My flesh trembles in fear of you;
    I stand in awe of your laws.

  1. Well, I’m here–feeling bruised and exhausted from a metaphysical fight that went all day yesterday.

    Fortunately, I’d put on the armor of God in the morning, so wild though the day was, we came through in one piece.

    I recognized early I was in the middle of spiritual warfare, but SO EXASPERATING!

    I’m so tired!

    Anyway, if you think of me, there’s a lot coming at me as I prepare to lead the Bible study this weekend at a convention of western Lutheran women.

    We return for two days then fly to Jackson, MS (So sorry, no time to visit Kim, I tried), for four intense days of spiritual renewal.

    I’m armoring up every morning, but this really feels like a battle.

    OTOH, somehow, I got through the entire to-do list yesterday–and I’m grateful.

    Now, on to teach my regular Bible study! I wonder what my notes say . . . LOL

  2. M, I just did Bible study in Psalm 12. It aligns perfectly with what you wrote.

    Psalm 12: 3-4
    “May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,
    And the tongue that speaks proud things,
    Who have said,
    ‘With our tongue we will prevail;
    Our lips are our own;
    Who is lord over us?’ “

  3. So interesting how the Word of God points to others but also to us, all in the same verse. I often read verdes like those and it seems I immediately “see” myself all too often.

    But I am guessing that’s God’s intended response.

  4. So true, dj. We are all absolutely guilty and have no hope other than Jesus. Praising God that He did not leave it to ourselves to save us from ourselves!♡ His eternal love conquers the death we each deserve. I am very sad to realize there are so many who do not know salvation through Jesus.

  5. Thank you. Much better day.

    The church office staff offered to put all the booklets together, which almost made me cry with gratitude.

  6. There is a thing I have previously shared on Facebook that says something like, “If you see the faults of others as you read the Bible but not your own, you’re reading it wrong.”

  7. Please pray for me to always use the Bible verses properly. Before I was a Christian that was one problem I could see in advance was that I did not want to misuse God”s holy word. Woe to us who do. Is there any hope? Thank God He forgives the most horrid kinds of sin. (There I go agsin. I can’t seem to keep from sinning every day in sone way.) Thanks for keeping me straight. Iron sharpens iron.

  8. I’ve told this one before, but our pastor’s youngest son was often reminded by his father that every time he pointed a finger outward, 4 more were pointing back at himself.

    At a family camp we were all at one year, he told the story again and his son, who was in the room, piped up, “Yep! That’s why whenever I point I do it like this” (accompanied by his pointing his entire hand, all 5 fingers outward, none turned back at himself).

    I still remember how we all cracked up, especially his dad (our pastor) who was sort of also trying not to laugh. I suspect he’d heard him explain that before.
