Prayer Requests 6-14-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 122

A song of ascents. Of David.

I rejoiced with those who said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
Our feet are standing
    in your gates, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built like a city
    that is closely compacted together.
That is where the tribes go up—
    the tribes of the Lord
   to praise the name of the Lord
    according to the statute given to Israel.
There stand the thrones for judgment,
    the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
    and security within your citadels.”
For the sake of my family and friends,
    I will say, “Peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your prosperity.

  1. Stepmom in law fell again this morning, while using her walker. She is mostly unhurt but is concerned that may impact her chemo treatment. Peace and wisdom and comfort. Husband says he is out of his depth. I say he is in training for when my turn comes.

  2. This is not as important or urgent as some recent prayer requests, but it is something that is beginning to bother me more than it had.

    My beloved Nightingale is a procrastinator. Some of the things she has been procrastinating on are causing me more frustration and anxiety than I had previously felt, even as I try to continue being patient. A couple of the things are “little” things that we could take care of rather quickly, but there are also at least a couple that are “big” projects, such as the matter of having her bathroom and my living room wall repaired. (It has been over two years that they have been using my bathroom, having to go through my living room to do so.)

    Nightingale has many fine qualities, but one of her not-so-fine traits is that she is quite resistant to even remotely feeling “pushed”, so much so that I feel that I cannot ask her when she will be ready to get to something or suggest that we get to something.

    Please pray that I will be able to have more patience, and for a peaceful spirit in me, as I wait for Nightingale to make her next move. But also please pray that God will put an urgency and determination in her to get going on what needs to be done. For now, she is on summer break from her college classes, so she has more time than if she waits until fall. Thank you.

  3. NancyJill – She was in the process of doing that a few months ago, and may have someone in mind. Maybe I should ask her about that.

  4. Feeling blessed by the support I am feeling from so many facets of my life.

    I still have not told my friend, Karen, who is already depressed by her own health concerns. It’s difficult to know what to do about that.

    Mumsee, all the series of crisis after crisis helps the reality sink in and helps the acceptance of what must happen. It is such a bumpy way to navigate. I am amazed at how well you all juggle the needs of everyone. May God weave a path through the tangles to a beautiful clearing in the near future!

    Kizzie, praying again for Nightingale to feel urgency in tackling these long delayed projects. Is there any way to sweeten the deal for her, to give her a reason to move forward quickly on the project for extra motivation to get it done? She may just feel the need for some down time for a week or so as transition. I know you don’t want her to feel pushed by ‘asking’ which might feel to her like a form of nagging. Maybe if you said you’d find a way to give her a special spa day or weekend getaway once the task is complete?

  5. Janice – It’s funny you should mention time away and a spa day. She and Forrest will be going camping in North Carolina for a few days at the end of the month. She and I had our pedicures recently, she had a special facial recently (to help combat the blemishes), and she is getting her hair cut today. So she kind of has that stuff all wrapped up. 🙂

    I have been thinking seriously of gently asking her to be open to listening to my concerns, and approach it in a way that she knows that I am not blaming her, but focus on my own anxiety about it all, and keep it brief. It has occurred to me that her procrastination has to do with her own anxieties over the whole situation, which I can certainly understand and empathize with.

  6. That is frustrating, Kizzie. I feel the same way many times. It would be easier to do some things yourself, but you can’t really do that either. Very frustrating.

    Mike is in a difficult place, as well. Praying for him, too, Kizzie and Janice.
