Prayer Requests 10-20-22

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

Anyone else?

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses the man of God.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”
A thousand years in your sight
    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.
Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.
You have set our iniquities before you,
    our secret sins in the light of your presence.
All our days pass away under your wrath;
    we finish our years with a moan.
10 Our days may come to seventy years,
    or eighty, if our strength endures;
   yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow,
    for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
12 Teach us to number our days,
    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

13 Relent, Lord! How long will it be?
    Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
    that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
    for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
    your splendor to their children.

17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands.

  1. Another tough prayer request from a childhood friend who knows I maintain a “pregnant mama” list.

    Her early 30-something daughter-in-law is 27 weeks pregnant with #2, a girl.

    J hasn’t felt well recently, and mentioned it at her routine OB appointment earlier this week.

    Doc in this relatively small town in coastal central California did some blood work, raised his eyebrows and admitted her to the hospital for more tests, including sending a camera down her throat to examine her gall bladder?

    While down there, he saw cancerous cells, some of which already had metastasized.

    More tests were due back today.

    She’s got an appointment scheduled with a specialist at Cedar Sinai in LA–a family connection–on Monday.

    They’re now talking about taking the baby next week–at 28 weeks, just at viability–so they can start aggressive treatment to save the mom’s life.

    Pray for all involved. I’ll keep you posted as I hear. Not believers, per se.

    Thank you.
