Prayer Requests 11-28-22

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 119:129-144

פ Pe

129 Your statutes are wonderful;
    therefore I obey them.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
    it gives understanding to the simple.
131 I open my mouth and pant,
    longing for your commands.
132 Turn to me and have mercy on me,
    as you always do to those who love your name.
133 Direct my footsteps according to your word;
    let no sin rule over me.
134 Redeem me from human oppression,
    that I may obey your precepts.
135 Make your face shine on your servant
    and teach me your decrees.
136 Streams of tears flow from my eyes,
    for your law is not obeyed.

צ Tsadhe

137 You are righteous, Lord,
    and your laws are right.
138 The statutes you have laid down are righteous;
    they are fully trustworthy.
139 My zeal wears me out,
    for my enemies ignore your words.
140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
    and your servant loves them.
141 Though I am lowly and despised,
    I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is everlasting
    and your law is true.
143 Trouble and distress have come upon me,
    but your commands give me delight.
144 Your statutes are always righteous;
    give me understanding that I may live.

  1. Prayer for endurance here. Both of us are feeling twinges in our backs from lifting. Today the hospice nurse arrives, hopefully bringing words of wisdom and answers to questions. Grandpa is most lively at night, with long conversations with people from the past, getting up, redecorating, changing clothes, etc. So we are most lively at night which means not much sleep is happening.

    Meantime, my brother reports that my dad fell yesterday, missed his chair at the table. He is back to using a walker and asked my brother to spend the night as he might be needed for bathroom attendance. That is good that dad is aware of his need, sad to see such a quick change from the day before when he appeared so strong. May God be glorified.

  2. Is the FL grandpa still adapting to the time change?

    Can the rest of you nap in shifts? (Hopeless at my house).

    Don’t teenagers like to stay up all night? 😉

    When we finally moved my grandmother into assisted living, my father and uncles were astounded at how feeble she suddenly became. “What happened?” They asked the nurse. “She managed at home fine, but she came here and is lost.”

    The nurse was very kind. “When she lived at home, most of what she did was rote–she’d done it so long, she didn’t have to think about where the bathroom was, etc.

    “Now, in a new environment, everything is new and she is demonstrating how her mind has slowed. It’s expected.”

    The family couldn’t see my grandmother’s mental deterioration very clearly until she was in a new place. 😦

    Very sorry about all this. Sometimes “caring” for my father–even when he didn’t live with us–was harder than managing the then-teens in my household. 😦

  3. My dad has taken a turn for the worst and is no longer able to stand up. We are checking into hospice for him. Maybe he will be able to die at home after all.

  4. Another virus in the house. Boy is home from school today (which I didn’t realize until he knocked on the bathroom door as I was drying off after a shower). I have been feeling exhausted and emotional since Saturday, and today can feel my throat getting scratchy and my nose getting a little sniffly.

    Please pray for us to get over this quickly, especially Boy, so he doesn’t lose much more time at school. And for it to pass by Nightingale. Thank you.

  5. Prayers, Mumsee, that y’all have stamina and that the twinges don’t get worse. These older bodies are not as flexible as they once were. Prayers for relief from hospice wisdom and expert seasoned knowledge guided by God’s best.
