Prayer Requests 10-25-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 94

The Lord is a God who avenges.
    O God who avenges, shine forth.
Rise up, Judge of the earth;
    pay back to the proud what they deserve.
How long, Lord, will the wicked,
    how long will the wicked be jubilant?

They pour out arrogant words;
    all the evildoers are full of boasting.
They crush your people, Lord;
    they oppress your inheritance.
They slay the widow and the foreigner;
    they murder the fatherless.
They say, “The Lord does not see;
    the God of Jacob takes no notice.”

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
    you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
    Does he who formed the eye not see?
10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
    Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?
11 The Lord knows all human plans;
    he knows that they are futile.

12 Blessed is the one you discipline, Lord,
    the one you teach from your law;
13 you grant them relief from days of trouble,
    till a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not reject his people;
    he will never forsake his inheritance.
15 Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
    and all the upright in heart will follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
    Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
17 Unless the Lord had given me help,
    I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
18 When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
    your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
19 When anxiety was great within me,
    your consolation brought me joy.

20 Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—
    a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?
21 The wicked band together against the righteous
    and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the Lord has become my fortress,
    and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
23 He will repay them for their sins
    and destroy them for their wickedness;
    the Lord our God will destroy them.

  1. Stepmom in law, who is just coming to the realization she can not provide the care dad in law needs, got word yesterday that her sister in Canada is not expected more than forty eight more hours. Sad times for her. May it drive her closer into the arms of our King.

  2. Her sister died over night. She now acknowledges that her husband needs twenty four hour care as she has spent time with him the past couple of days and seen how he is doing. We are also having him checked for a UTI just in case it is as simple as that.

  3. Oh, Mumsee, that is rough on her spirits. Praying for God’s peace in abundance. Letting go of expectations is very difficult. And her sister’s sudden passing . . . too much to top it off.

    My friend, F, was on our prayer call this a.m. Then she was going to a pharmacy for recheck on her home Covid test before calling her doc. Please pray it will be a mild case on her 92 y/o body.

    I went off my antibiotic yestetday. I feel so tired. I have a followup with surgeon tomorrow and body and bone scans later this week. Please pray my energy level picks up. Art’s surgery got rescheduled to mid Nov. We’ve been juggling so many appointments. Please forgive if I repeat myself or have neglected updates. It had been many, many years since I was on an antibiotic, at least fifteen.

  4. Good news in the bad, H’s stomach cancer continues grim, but they think the baby girl can stay put for 3 weeks—getting her to 32 weeks. They’re pumping steroids for her lungs.


    Needs a miracle.

  5. Praying, the expecting mom situation is so sad.

    And Janice, you must be getting “doctored-out” as I’ve called it in my own last few months. It’s much more exhausting that what I’ve been through.


    Some interesting thoughts today in an email from The Gospel Coalition:

    ~ In the last decade, two countries have stood out for church growth, even amid political hostility. And now, in recent weeks, both countries seem to be on the brink of major transitions with uncertain implications.

    Xi Jinping solidified his hold on China after declaring victory this week in his third term as president. Unfortunately, history suggests that repression of the growing Christian church will continue. In a recent interview, I asked about the theology of suffering that sustains Chinese house-church leaders amid pestilence and persecution. Union with Christ is the daily bread of jailed pastors.

    Meanwhile, protests against the Islamic leaders of Iran fuel hope for change. Nima Alizadeh, who leads TGC Farsi, says Christians are scared, worried, and angry. They don’t know what to do.

    “They grieve and mourn for the many people who have been killed,” he wrote. “They cry out to God for an end to this evil and for a better government.”

    TGC Council member Afshin Ziafat wrote last week that oppression is nothing new for the church. Amid frustration with their Islamist rulers, many Iranians have turned to Christ. In fact, Iran has the fastest-growing evangelical movement in the world.

    “There’s a long history of harassment, persecution, and even martyrdom for Christians in Iran,” Ziafat wrote. “But the gospel has spread despite this.”

    Amid revolution and repression in two of the world’s most venerable, ancient civilizations, what would be more typical of our God than to send revival?

  6. Today my grandson turns 12 years old. He is also now, at approximately 5’4″, taller than his Mimi (that’s me).

    Please pray for his salvation, and for the salvation of his mother, father, and his other family members. May he live up to his Papa’s words that he is/will be a young man of “Great Ordained D estiny.” (Notice what the bold capital letters spell out. 🙂 But he didn’t necessarily mean that in the way we usually refer to a “man of God” being a minister of some kind, but more as a way of saying “a godly man”.)

  7. Thank you to any who prayed for me to have increased energy. I took a short power nap and it did wonders! I got all the leaves swept off the driveway and did other chores needing to be done. Still need to cook soup. I am looking forward to my divine appointments with medical staff this week. God goes before us . . .

  8. Prayers, Kizzie, for his Great Ordained Destiny to manifest. May God bring the needed influences into his life, may he desire in his heart to learn all about Jesus even if it is out of rebellion against those who would keep him in the dark, and may he be the unexpected way to lead others into the light he finds. I pray this blessing in the powerful name of Jesus, Amen
