Prayer Requests 8-5-22

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 17

A prayer of David.

Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
    listen to my cry.
   Hear my prayer—
    it does not rise from deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come from you;
    may your eyes see what is right.

Though you probe my heart,
    though you examine me at night and test me,
   you will find that I have planned no evil;
    my mouth has not transgressed.
Though people tried to bribe me,
    I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
    through what your lips have commanded.
My steps have held to your paths;
    my feet have not stumbled.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show me the wonders of your great love,
    you who save by your right hand
    those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
    hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
    from my mortal enemies who surround me.

10 They close up their callous hearts,
    and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,
    with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 They are like a lion hungry for prey,
    like a fierce lion crouching in cover.

13 Rise up, Lord, confront them, bring them down;
    with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
14 By your hand save me from such people, Lord,
    from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
   May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
    may their children gorge themselves on it,
    and may there be leftovers for their little ones.

15 As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face;
    when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

  1. Lord, I lift up Mumsee’s daughter and family who are battling Covid along with all the many others who are suffering with it right now. I know so many! Please let the miseries and symptpms quickly subside without any complications that require hospitalization. Please let them quickly regain strength and not have long haul recurring problems from the harboring of residue from the illness. Please help those who care for them to stay safe from the virus. Lord, You alone know what can stop transmossion. Manmade efforts to stop it have failed. Herd immunity was suppose to work. Lord, we are hopeless when we give credit to anything or anyone besides You for healing. I thank You in advance for the complete healing of Mumsee’s family, Mr. and Mrs. L, and the others I know. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen

  2. Praise — my neighbor who had the stroke and has 2 really bad knees (bone on bone, lots of arthritis) got a preliminary approval today to do the replacement surgeries, provided her neurologist clears her. She’s so relieved, she’d put those surgeries off so long and then got caught not able to have them when the stroke hit. She was so depressed that she’d not be able to walk again.

    Pray that everything looks good through the neurologist when she sees him. it’ll be a rough go with both knees and still dealing with the effects of the stroke, of course, but I’m praying this will provide encouragement now and relief in time.
