Prayer Requests 7-14-22

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord.

   Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for at his command they were created,
and he established them for ever and ever—
    he issued a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.

   Praise the Lord.

  1. Please pray for Ukarumpa and the surrounding area as they have had no rain. Water tanks are running dry and the people are subsistence farmers and no rain means no food.

  2. Prayers for that area, Jo. I know your heart will be forever attached to those people and their needs. I see that in my friend, the retired missionary who served in the Philippines.
    May God soon provide the clouds and rainfall, not to excess but to a reasonable saturation, to make the crops grow to feed the people.
    Isaiah 55:10-11
    “10 Rain and snow fall from the sky
        and don’t return without watering the ground.
    They cause the plants to sprout and grow,
        making seeds for the farmer
        and bread for the people.
    11 The same thing is true of the words I speak.
        They will not return to me empty.
    They make the things happen that I want to happen,
        and they succeed in doing what I send them to do.”

    May the rains fall, and may His word soak into fertile hearts. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen

  3. Kathaleena, does he have to put drops in his eye many times each day? I think that is pretty standard. And I did not expect that beforehand. Praising God for a routine surgery that usually has great results!

    Remembering when I had one eye done that there was a major, out of the blue, lightning strike so close by that had a tremendous clap of thunder and the power went out. I was in recovery but so concerned if a doctor was in the middle of a cataract procedure. It was so odd that it happened. Truly shocking to everyone in the facility.

  4. They didn’t tell you that before the surgery, Janice? I had to have a long pre-surgery consultation appointment a couple months before the surgery in which I was informed about all of that. There were also drops I had to use before the surgeries, I think.

    That consultation appointment was a long one, with lots of waiting, because the surgeon was a popular and busy one. At some point, a technician giving me an eye exam was amazed that my left eye could not, or could barely, make out the big E at the top of the chart. What also amazed and amused her was my Moebius Syndrome, and the fact that I can’t make my eyes laterally. She called in some other people to check me out. (She asked my permission first.)

    Some people would have been annoyed, embarrassed, or offended by her reaction and fascination with my facial differences, but I was amused. (It saddens me to see comments or posts on the Moebius Facebook pages by some who do get offended by people asking about their condition or by the suggestion that we should explain about it in job interviews.)

  5. Yes, he does have to put drops in; in fact he started those yesterday. We both have to use drops because of allergy issues anyway, so this is nothing big.

    He will wear a shield over the eye at night. I have heard more people say they had an issue with keeping it taped on all night.

    I was thinking how at other places around the globe and in the past so many just went blind. We are truly blessed to have this surgery available to us.

    He wanted to eat breakfast out immediately after the surgery. We also stopped for a quick run through Aldi’s.

  6. Please pray for a Christian family whose younger son has recently cut off relationship and communication (except for allowing emergency communication through another son). This son believes he is a transgender woman and that his family is not as affirming as he would like. Please pray for the parents and their son, as well as the other son. Such a very sad situation that is becoming more common these days. 😦

  7. I knew about the drops before surgery (did some up front) but did not know about the downtime required to let them be effective. To put drops in and immediately go about my business was my expectation. As it turned out, if I was doing anything with other people, I always had to delay the others as well as myself while I did the eyedrops and resting period.


  8. UPDATE 07/14/22 1:03 PM

    Anne isn’t doing as well today. The lung specialist and heart specialist have had to take more control today. Her Cardiologist has said that she is in congestive heart failure. According to him, her heart has just had to work extra hard everyday that we have been here and once they get the fluid off and with some medication she will be fine. He has upped her Lasixs to try and get the fluid off her lungs and her heart, but they have to be careful because if they take too much it could hurt her kidneys. They are trying to figure out what is from the Covid and what’s from the kidney failure right now. Pray that this is an easy strain of Covid and not something that’s going to get worse!

    Her Creatinine did come down to 4.1 so that’s a win! That means her kidneys are filtering a little on their own. She has also not run a fever for a few days!

    They are going to be moving Anne back to PCU so that she can be monitored more closely.

  9. Glad to hear a good report Kathaleena. Hope it helps him greatly.

    Praying for the rest.

    Anne and her loved ones too. That’s hard for all of the family.

  10. Asking God to intervene for Anne in a mighty way, to bring her back from these dire circumstances so she can be the mother that God intended her to be. Please, Lord, revive and restore her fully. May fluid clear from her lungs. May her kidneys operate in full. May there be miracles in her bodily systems and functions that are attributed to You for Your glory. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen
