Prayer Requests 8-15-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
   The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
   it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
   though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
   to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
   he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
   at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
   Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

  1. Prayers, please, for shrinkage of my tumor and dissolving of Art’s kidney stone. Prayers for my stamina to rev up for all that is ahead.
    Doubtful that Wes can be here to help. Brother can help, but is the stress worth it?

    Keeping dj in prayers daily. God going before, in the thick, and in the full recovery. Peace, freedom from fear and anxiety, releasing to God of anything that encumbers in a negative way. Thankful for surgeons, hospitals, and staffing of medical teams. All good gifts from Father God.

  2. I spoke with a lady at church yesterday who had a lumpectomy with my surgeon. Very good report. We happened to be the only ones in the restroom, and I was explaining the mask wearing. She gave helpful info about her sister who had worked with both a surgeon and plastic surgeon. Praising God for how He divinely supplies info to help us along the way.

  3. Praying for you Janice, and thanks for your prayers for me. Any date yet for your surgery? Art’s will be first?

    I was praying the same this morning about being grateful for doctors, surgeons and procedures that now make our lives so much easier (and often times longer).

  4. No date yet. Will see the plastic surgeon Friday and decide if two surgeries in one or just one to start. Two at same time would mean coordinating schedules for two docs. It could very well coincide with Art’s surgery time. Not sure what that would mean. It’s complicated. Thank you, Dj.

  5. Prayer for twenty. She is to be released in the next day or two, once the social worker arranges transport back to the Jerome facility. Daughter refuses to return to Jerome. She wants to come home. Prayer for husband to remain strong.

  6. Husband is beginning to waver. I reminded him that he has been able to help his folks, my folks, three or four elderly couples in town each week. All that will come to an end if he brings her home. She takes all of his time. As it is, with her living far away, she takes half his waking time with phone calls and paperwork. She has other folk to help her. Some of the folks he has been helping have nobody else.

  7. If he won’t do it for himself, tell him you and the other children need him to stand firm for you and the other children. No one doubts his love and affection for a broken young adult.

  8. Praying for the upcoming surgeries. Praying for Mumsee’s husband to remain strong.
    Thankful I am doing quite a bit better tonight. I will try a full work day tomorrow. I’ve been going in and getting the ‘needed’ stuff done that no-one else can do and then heading home.

  9. The problem seems to be that she has to want to stay at the facility and they are not responsible for finding another place as we had been told. So, unless we turn guardianship over to the state, it is up to us to figure out the system.
