Prayer Requests 12-28-22

It’s Wednesday, so don’t forget to pray for The Gambia.

Anyone else have something to share?

Psalm 139

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
    Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
    your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
    and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
    I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

  1. Thank you, Mumsee. All is well so far. I can feel some effects already and I know they will build. I did slowly walk about 40 minutes in the driveway yesterday but realize my energy level will probably wane.

  2. Headed home, thankfully without a lot of rain in the forecast.

    Daughter-in-law and 3 Adorables in car headed home from Boise.

    Please pray for all of ys, but especially them.

  4. I don’t know why it doubled.

    Just finished my 3-hour shift. We listened to Hamilton—and I heard clever ideas I hadn’t heard before.

    It’s really a creative masterpiece.

  5. I finished my third treatment. Wes carried me to this one. The wait was longer since a machine had been down. The workers said it had been a challenging day. We heard the bell ring. Not sure if it means the end of treatments or someone is declared cancer free. Maybe AJ knows?

  6. We have cut out dairy and oats and all seemed well. Introduced lactose free ice cream after a couple days of reintroducing oatmeal. Relapse. No more lactose free ice cream or oats for a few days but still have the problem.

  7. My dad “eats anything you put before me” but when I put food out, he almost never eats. No rice, beef, pork, chicken, potatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon, veggies. Currently, he eats canned peaches, two eggs, jello, frozen to ice cream consistency ensure. He drinks nothing but a half can of pepsi per day. Though he will eat oatmeal if I put it out. Not cream of wheat. Hydration is through the peaches and pepsi and jello.

    Today, I am making him rice with the admonition that the health care workers (including Phos) want him to eat rice for the benefit. His Haitian nurse got him to eat it somehow. He is struggling with swallowing now so I will only offer.
