Prayer Requests 4-5-23

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

Anyone else have something to share?

Psalm 77

For Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm.

I cried out to God for help;
    I cried out to God to hear me.
When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
    at night I stretched out untiring hands,
    and I would not be comforted.

I remembered you, God, and I groaned;
    I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.
You kept my eyes from closing;
    I was too troubled to speak.
I thought about the former days,
    the years of long ago;
I remembered my songs in the night.
    My heart meditated and my spirit asked:

“Will the Lord reject forever?
    Will he never show his favor again?
Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
    Has his promise failed for all time?
Has God forgotten to be merciful?
    Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”

10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
    the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

13 Your ways, God, are holy.
    What god is as great as our God?
14 You are the God who performs miracles;
    you display your power among the peoples.
15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people,
    the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

16 The waters saw you, God,
    the waters saw you and writhed;
    the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured down water,
    the heavens resounded with thunder;
    your arrows flashed back and forth.
18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,
    your lightning lit up the world;
    the earth trembled and quaked.
19 Your path led through the sea,
    your way through the mighty waters,
    though your footprints were not seen.

20 You led your people like a flock
    by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

  1. Mumsee, since you brought that up, this is a prayer focus for this week:

    “Prayer Focus

    Students & Young Professionals, Seoul, South Korea

    Many historically Christian universities in South Korea are now filled with students who do not know Jesus. Some universities still have required chapel times, even for non-believing students. In hopes of reaching new students, one university has provided a weekly small group meeting instead of chapel for freshmen. In small groups, students will have the chance to discuss topics from a Christian perspective. As several missionaries lead small groups this semester, pray for their wisdom in leading discussions and that meaningful relationships will be built as they show the students what a true relationship with God looks like. Pray that the Holy Spirit will open these students’ hearts to the gospel and to involvement in Christian community.”

  2. Indeed. Prayer for open hearts in non believers and wisdom on the part of believers in using the time wisely to share the Truth in relationships however God desires.

  3. Send up a prayer for Lynette and her family. She is dying from colon cancer and only given a few months now. The family has nine children. I am not sure of their ages.

  4. Prayers for Lynette and family. May God provide for each what they need as they walk through it with her. May she receive the best end-of-life care to bring her comfort, peace, and pain relief. May love flow unhindered through the family. And may all be saved and recognize all the benefits of that in such a time as this. In Jesus, Amen

  5. Please pray for Boy. He was not feeling well after school, and did not eat his dinner, saying his stomach didn’t feel well.

    Also, please pray that if this is a stomach bug, it will not strike me, nor Nightingale. Thank you.

  6. M – Today was his last day before spring vacation, so that wouldn’t be a problem right now.

    In general, though, he is having trouble adjusting to middle school. I am hoping and praying that he will go through a time of maturing soon, and be able to handle it better next year. (I think he will.)
