Prayer Requests 5-9-23

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 110

Of David. A psalm.

The Lord says to my lord:

   “Sit at my right hand
    until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet.”

The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying,
    “Rule in the midst of your enemies!”
Your troops will be willing
    on your day of battle.
   Arrayed in holy splendor,
    your young men will come to you
    like dew from the morning’s womb.

The Lord has sworn
    and will not change his mind:
   “You are a priest forever,
    in the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your right hand;
    he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead
    and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.
He will drink from a brook along the way,
    and so he will lift his head high.

  1. Prayer for photographer colleague and friend who undergoes surgery for pancreatic cancer today (sorry if this is a repeat, tried to post it earlier but looks like it didn’t show up)

    Continued prayer for the victims of the Texas shooting, a news story last night about the 6-year-old who is now an orphan just brought me to tears (again). He and his parents and 3-year-old brother were at the mall to pick out his birthday gift. They all were killed except 6-year-old who lost his entire family.

    Prayers for our nation.

  2. Indeed, thank you mumsee.

    _______________

    ~ Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor … rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer … Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not. Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.

  3. (Cont’d, hit return by mistake too soon)

    … Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written: ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.

  4. Argh, I did it again …. sigh.

    (contin’d):

    But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink, for in so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Rom. 12:10-21)

  5. I was reading that on a break this afternoon, it’s always been one of my favorite portions of Scripture and just thought I’d share it 🙂 I always need to revisit it.

  6. It is a good message. One I have been trying to instill in son in law, he is doing well. He is back from the adventure you were praying for, all went well.

  7. Our friend, Mitch, underwent a seven-hour surgery yesterday. Years ago he was in a terrible accident and has trouble with his legs ever sense. He was told there was no break, but it seems one may have been way back then. He has two infected feet and is a diabetic. The next two weeks are critical to save the feet and legs. He has a good sense of humor in spite of it all. His poor mother finds it all so difficult. She has had so many losses in her life and it is difficult to see him suffer. She is a strong Christian, however.

  8. That’s a long surgery — glad it’s over and it’s behind him, praying for the two weeks to come, sounds still rather complicated.

    Photographer friend is recovering from surgery, doctor said all went well, the believe they removed all of the cancer — now to rest, recuperate with family, he’ll be in the hospital for several more days. But news was better than many of us anticipated.
