Prayer Requests 4-22-23

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

  1. Psalm 91 carried us through covid. I can never praise him enough. The word of the Lord is powerful to save and protect and lifts up the weak and humble. He hears and answers, and enables us to receive his answer. May we all find that secret place and dwell there in good times and bad.

  2. I am being awed anew this morning by study in Ephesians. Then I saw your post, Debra. How sweet it is to consider all the benefits we believers have to carry us through these days! Our praise and glory-giving to Him could never be enough.

  4. Amen, thanks for your blog faithfulness, AJ. Hope you’re feeling a little better today?

    And thanks, NJ — neighbors have been neck-deep in house stuff, a bathroom wall leak has led to a total overhaul of the bathroom; but then, the kitchen-family room also, because, well, why not? So new floors, painting, new counter tops, new kitchen sink.

    I think it’s mostly done now so I’m hoping she’ll be able to get back concentrating again on her PT and getting that second knee scheduled for surgery; seems like things on that front slowed down (and the house projects were probably a welcome change for her, something she could concentrate on and could have a little more personal control over). Her task is to further strengthen both legs, but that is difficult as the other knee is so painful and unstable; she can’t walk much until that surgery gets done.

    Church deacon is recovering well from the surgery but will need to start chemo and possibly immune therapy in a few months. Continued prayers appreciated.

  5. “Update for Jessica week 7 Saturday. Rehab is very difficult for Jessica and she is having a hard time staying positive. So we need prayers for a positive attitude and for a good general outlook with determination and resolve to participate and get the most she can out of it. She didn’t know how hard it would be and I know it’s painful this week. Recovery is hard. This is a great facility and there are so many Christian people here, Jessica is where she needs to be. She is already doing better and has had some movement on her left side already, just not coordinated movement yet. She’s much stronger and has been able to sit up for hours every day in increments instead of just two minutes at a time once a day. It’s very encouraging to see the progress. She’s wearing her own clothes and feeding herself. She gets to go downstairs by herself to eat and I think she enjoys that little bit of independence. Good things are happening. We are standing together for a full recovery and continued progress. I’m not going to be posting daily updates anymore but every couple days so everyone can know how she’s doing. Thank you all for the continued prayers and support.”

  6. Sweet pictures, thanks for keeping us up with that story, Kizzie.

    Can’t imagine the road these parents and families walk when serious illness or conditions strike their babies. 😦 But God …
