Prayer Requests 10-3-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 73

A psalm of Asaph.

Surely God is good to Israel,
    to those who are pure in heart.

But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
    I had nearly lost my foothold.
For I envied the arrogant
    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

They have no struggles;
    their bodies are healthy and strong.
They are free from common human burdens;
    they are not plagued by human ills.
Therefore pride is their necklace;
    they clothe themselves with violence.
From their callous hearts comes iniquity;
    their evil imaginations have no limits.
They scoff, and speak with malice;
    with arrogance they threaten oppression.
Their mouths lay claim to heaven,
    and their tongues take possession of the earth.
10 Therefore their people turn to them
    and drink up waters in abundance.
11 They say, “How would God know?
    Does the Most High know anything?”

12 This is what the wicked are like—
    always free of care, they go on amassing wealth.

13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure
    and have washed my hands in innocence.
14 All day long I have been afflicted,
    and every morning brings new punishments.

15 If I had spoken out like that,
    I would have betrayed your children.
16 When I tried to understand all this,
    it troubled me deeply
17 till I entered the sanctuary of God;
    then I understood their final destiny.

18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;
    you cast them down to ruin.
19 How suddenly are they destroyed,
    completely swept away by terrors!
20 They are like a dream when one awakes;
    when you arise, Lord,
    you will despise them as fantasies.

21 When my heart was grieved
    and my spirit embittered,
22 I was senseless and ignorant;
    I was a brute beast before you.

23 Yet I am always with you;
    you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.

27 Those who are far from you will perish;
    you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28 But as for me, it is good to be near God.
    I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;
    I will tell of all your deeds.

  1. 35 year-old mentally and physically disabled Jonathan is having surgery today. Our prayer is for a safety during a tricky procedure that was botched several months ago.

    He’s one of the least of these–but no one should suffer just because they can’t communicate in the traditional way.

  4. Thank you.

    Mary is the Mom who cares for Jonathan.

    Many thanks to all of you that have prayed for Jonathan’s surgery today. The next few hours and days may be challenging so please keep them in your prayers as the Lord prompts you.

    Following is Mary’s update a few minutes ago:

    The surgeon just came out and said they are finishing up and will send him to recovery in about 10 minutes. They were able to do everything they set out to do.

    The tubing was definitely degenerating so he felt like that likely was the main problem. Now we watch for overdose and withdrawal symptoms — not knowing how much medicine was getting through previously as well as spinal leakage. He will need to be flat on his back for 24 hours.

    Thank You all for being Jesus to Mary & Jonathan.

  5. Lifting them again. Lord, hear our chorus of prayers! Please let everything remain balanced with stability all the way through his recovery. May there be no glitches or waverings for concern on his monitors. May he smile sooner than expected. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
