Here at the beginning of the New Year, now underway in the east, we bring our prayers before God.

Once again I begin with the prayer used for the last few years:

My God, my Creator, my Redeemer, my Love
Spirit pervading all creation, of which I am a part
Spirit which moves within me and unites me to that whole
May we grow towards unity
May we help each other in our daily needs, earthly, spiritual and emotional
May I learn to have compassion for myself and others
May I be open to the promptings of the Spirit
So that we all may live in peace and love and rejoice in the glory of creation.
Let it be so.

For my friend and his mother, in scarily changed circumstances. Last night, the hand of providence was evident from the time of setting out, when due to my needing a comfort stop, we were in position to get a photograph of a beautiful sunset for the end of the last day.
The evening went quite well, and I was beginning to come to the conclusion that visits could be repeated, even if they involved wall to wall catchup of Coronation Street.
But my friend's mother was getting drowsy and less capable, and when my friend suggested that she might want to follow her doctor's advice and go to A&E (ER) because of the way the antibiotics she was taking for her legs were affecting her generally, she was happy the suggestion had been made. (She has responded badly to antibiotics before in a similar way.)
Before she left the house, she wet herself, which has never happened before, and which she explains by not wanting to use the stairs to the toilet during the evening.
We drove to the hospital nearest her home, where she has been before, and they immediately put her ahead of the queue, and eventually in a cubicle to be seen by the doctor, having discussions about ward bed space.
By then, it was about 4 o'clock, and the two of them insisted that I return home the 20 odd miles, with the proviso that I phone their home number as soon as I got back, so that they knew that I had not fallen asleep or been involved in an accident with New Year traffic, and that my friend would phone my mobile with a message about what had happened after I left when he could. His mobile had a flat battery.
I duly phoned in, but haven't had a message back yet. (9 o'clock)
If I had not agreed to their coming to my place, getting to hospital when she needed it could have been difficult, and my friend was glad I was there for the time that I could be, so I see it as intentional that things worked out like this. If she had been at home, the state she had got into could have looked just like needing to catch up on sleep.

I am, naturally, worried about what is going on, and what is needed next, and praying for a positive outcome.

And would like some proper sleep. There was a lot of caffeine in the waiting room machine latte. Needed at the time.

I hope this isn't too long for a prayer request, but I didn't know where else to put it.

I heard back about 10 when my friend got home. The hospital had come to no conclusion, but was engaging in tests. He was probably going to get to church. Despite the lack of sleep.

For Kelly.

For peace everywhere, especially in Syria.

For healing for those suffering long-term illness.

For all those for whom no-one else will pray.

For all of us in the New Year, may we be safe, happy, healthy and good.

And may we all succeed at our New Year’s resolutions!

For healing for Little H, and upholding for his parents, grandparents and sibling.

For me to do what needs to be done.

Aren’t I diligent? I haven’t missed a prayer day since last year!

All the usual stuff for me please, and can we add to “the usual stuff” the removal of tyrants from power and for wise and just leaders to arise in their place.

I have a head cold, which would not be such a much except that I had to fly from CA to VA yesterday. Now one of my ears is stopped up and I am nearly deaf on that side. Also it is very uncomfortable, though not exactly painful. Such a tiny passageway, the Eustachian canal, but so much depends upon it! I would appreciate your prayers that it would get itself together and start working right.

For all above.

And perhaps for me, too, for the third tooth in a row, a premolar, has lost its filling. The dentist is not sure it can be saved, and if it goes, I won't be able to chew properly on the right. Just one molar in isolated state above the lower ones. I'm having to wait till next week for work on it, and the stopping I put in it fell out at the next meal. Which would be OK if the replacement packs were findable, having fallen foul of the rapid tidy preceding friend's mother coming for Christmas.

The next tooth, an incisor, doesn't have the same sort of filling, so may be safe from the Penxit party.

[Votive] for all, and especially Penny S (and her dentist - may s/he be given extra-special skill and dexterity!).

Please also hoist up a quick prayer for me - I'm dependent now on regular dosings of hydro-cortisone, and have run out (forgot to renew the prescription in time). The local pharmacy has them on order (I'm their only customer for h-c), but I might have to go 24-36 hours without. It's unlikely, but I could, in theory, have an Addison's Crisis, after a couple of hours of which I could go into a coma..... [Help]

You may remember my mentioning him in a prayer request late last year. It seemed at that time that he had only a few days left, but his condition became more stable and he was able to spend a little while longer with his family, and to have Christmas with them, which was a blessing.

[Votive] for E., that he may come to the fullness of life, and peace, and joy.
[Votive] for consolation and courage for his wife and family.

[Votive] for all of us, and for all the requests made here.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers.

Thank you for your prayers. I still don't know what to do so continued prayers would be appreciated...

Last week I had a chat with the vicar of the church I think I would probably go to if I left my church. I told him a bit about my situation and he listened, and was sympathetic. I also discovered that the new curate at that church is someone I used to know slightly and she recognised me straight away and came over to say hello. That all seems encouraging, but the situation is made more complicated by the fact that I have agreed to take on a job at my current church that I really don't want to do (I thought it would help me to become more involved again but it's just making me feel very stressed) and if I walk away from that I'll be letting everybody down.

Abigail, you have my prayers and my sympathies, having been in this position myself. And from that experience, I endorse what WW said. It's almost certainly less traumatic for them to find someone else to do the job than it is for you to keep on doing it.

Moving church, on the other hand, can be like hitting an iceberg. It feels unremarkable and smooth and then you suddenly find that something innocuous sets off a complex explosion of emotions.

Abigail, my Meeting was short of a Treasurer, and they asked me. I was very dubious, but thought, and prayed about it, and when I met the person who had asked me while I was on holiday in Cornwall, I agreed. I had, for a number of external reasons, been feeling unhappy where I was, and was hoping this would help to get me back in.
For a while, it was fine, though the original Treasurer did not hand over the spreadsheet that had been used. Then I needed to reconcile everything, and I found I had a difference in the accounts. I searched and searched, and had no help because the previous T was busy with another set of accounts, and dismissive.
Finally, I had to pluck up my courage, and apologetically explain the situation to the Meeting, how I felt bad about letting them down, and hand the books over. The person who took over soon found the missing amount, and no-one was critical of me.
As I wasn't leaving the Meeting, the situation wasn't the same, but owning up to having taken on too much turned out not to be a problem.
I would suggest you do so, and see what the reaction is. It may help you to make up your mind about the path you are meant to follow.

Please pray for my pupil D, the unhappy boy. His behaviour is escalating, and he has been aggressive and unco-operative since he came back from his holiday. I don't think this child has enough love at home. He's so sad, and finds relating to others very difficult. Lord, help him please. No-one here seems to be doing anything for him.

Please also pray for Bro Cat the Younger, my wee bro who I got to spend Christmas with along with the rest of the family in Sydney. He's not happy, and there are sad silences between him and the rest of us. Lord, I want him to be happy, please?

We have just returned home to sleep after being with them today.
We will rejoin them all tomorrow.

Daughter and baby arrived safely at the new hospital in separate ambulances. Daughter's wonderful husband travelled with the baby.
Daughter is no longer in need of high dependency unit but is still quite unwell from all she went through to get the baby out.
The decision was taken in the night to intubate the baby so that he can be given morphine as he is in great pain. He appears to be very strong-just like his mother!

Your prayers are very much appreciated.

For my friend and his mother again. He has said to her that he really needs help from the agencies that offer that sort of thing. She has rejected this in no uncertain terms. Not going into details, but he feels threatened. Because she has made threats.
He feels that the house is evil, not with spooky shapes and poltergeist activity, but bringing out anger in its occupants.
Serious prayer is required, I think.

Thanks for the prayers. It got worse. Then better, after I had started to storm out of my own home! Continued support definitely needed for both friend and mother, who is playing host to a WUM alternative personality. She cannot stop, even when it is apparent she is causing distress.

I have imitated a mutual friend of friend and myself, who I put up in the spare room of my previous home after the 1987 hurricane ripped the roof off his mobile home. He said Compline each night, and when he left, the odd feeling that had been hanging around there for no apparent reason (not there when I moved in) had gone. I fished out my prayer book and did likewise.

Thank you for my inclusion - but you can drop the dentist bit - a splendid bit of reconstruction involving a white composite. A tiny sculpture, never to be seen.

However, my friend's mother has been re-admitted to hospital (I think and hope - didn't stay through all the procedures). She came over to my place and could not stop shivering, even with the room so warm I found breathing affected, and could not breathe well because of cataarh. And once at the hospital, she would not sit down, but kept standing until called for assessment. Then she dozed off in the wheelchair.

My friend is not sure whether she is ill or dying or both, and takes guilt upon himself.

Update on all the Chopping--

Dog Chopped is doing great, thank God.
Mrs. B has just died and Mr Lamb is helping the family with the funeral--he is wiped out from being down at her deathbed with the rest of the family so long, and making the arrangements.
I'm off to Chicago for work tomorrow, leaving the guys to hold the fort. [Eek!] A bit nervous as I have to fly and then do a lot of driving in less than perfect weather.
A has a short bit of breathing room (days?) while we see whether God and the mortgage company together pull off a miracle. Please, please God.

What a week this has been!

Thank you for your prayers which have held my daughter, husband and baby.
We have lurched from one crisis to another as different consultants reviewed and altered the more positive initial interpretations of the brain scan on the baby and one even suggested the ventilator should be removed today and they should let him go. My daughter stood firm as they felt it was too early to do that and today the baby woke up!
The prognosis is still very shaky but they have more time to give him a chance to recover and to spend time with him. Things are considerably different from how they were they were 2 days ago.
I am exhausted but I am also in awe of my daughter and her husband as they love this little one for however long they have him and with whatever challenges he faces.

Your continued prayers are very much appreciated

D is on the phone to 111. Constant shivering again. Now we are waiting to be rung back - but call 111 again if there is a problem before they call. Which, at 10 to 12 is bothering, as normally, I would be driving them home by now.

I am drinking coffee.
 
Posted by Penny S (# 14768) on :
 
I could see where the narrative was driving. Paramedic rings, finds the idea of people going home at this time wrong, so does the doctor who rings later, and does not visit, so she is staying in my recliner chair - her choice, not reclining, she wants to sleep upright. Friend is either on the bed-settee in the same room to make sure she is alright and can get to the loo if necessary, or in my spare room on the futon. I do get to bed. Goodness knows what time people will get up. Heating on all night.
Friend is very apologetic. D is very apologetic. They just wanted to see if going back to the hospital was a good idea when they rang. It wasn't planned.
Prayers required.
Because I can see where this is going to, and I would really rather it didn't.

R, friend of middle son, is a former world champion Ironman and triathlon competitor. Out training on bike near Hawkesbury River west of Sydney. Yesterday. Deserted road, He and coach were doing 60kmh when a 4WD came up behind them and overtook them over double centre lines. A car came up unseen from opposite direction and 4WD veered back into left and collected M's friend. Lots of cuts and bruises, five broken ribs, broken shoulder, broken nose which is making breathing difficult, facial and head injuries. These and nose will require plastic surgery.

My wife was told today that her pregnancy is at high risk of miscarriage, due to a fibroid. She has to rest for at least a month, in the hope that the dripping of blood will stop, which would mean an end to the high risk, though the risk will remain till the birth, if it happens, happens. She's five weeks pregnant with our second child. We saw the foetus today, about 2 inches big, already moving its arms and legs around with a strong heart. The fibroid is close to it. It shouldn't inhibit its growth, just that there is the risk of miscarriage.

She was in hospital for five days last week due to fainting due to blood loss coming from the uterus.

I'm still getting over the news that my mother was diagnosed as schizophrenic years ago, when she was bringing me up on my own after my father died when I was three. The news isn't so shocking as such, more enlightening to me than anyone else, just that it showed how shit my childhood was, which causes mourning in me.

My mother-in-law died yesterday morning. She had been gradually going downhill for some time, but it was more sudden than expected.

This tells you a little of why she will be missed. My partner and her 5 siblings have many other reasons.

She was a great lady, and she did her best to make the world a better place. She was a week short of her 95th birthday, and she only stopped working in her mid-80s - her last work trip to Bangladesh was fodder for some of her best stories! Her handbag was stolen, either by another delegate or by a journalist (they were the only options) and trying to cobble together travel documents and money made for (in retrospect) a rather scary narrative. But she loved it.

Rest well, Laurie.

Like an idiot, due to Events, I covenanted with a friend to at least try and run for office. She is now running for library board in her home town. I have just been tapped to run for the vestry.

I cannot feel my talents are useful to the church, but clearly there are some demented people in the congregation because this is the second time my name has been thrown into the hat. (The last time I was able to get off the hook because my mother had cancer and I had to fly to the West Coast.) The vestry, 12 or 15 people, are elected, and they always try to get more than 15 so that you have some illusion of choice. Perhaps they are desperate? (Oh, pleasant thought, maybe I won't win.)

And I idiotically said I would run, right? I did nothing more about it and this has fallen into my in-box, right? I am worried that God is poking me with a stick to get me to do this. Your prayers for discernment (on the part of the voters as well as for me) would be appreciated.

Having said that, I'm always glad that I have a let-out clause if I'm approached as a candidate for such bodies: as the organist's wife I don't think it would be right (and I'd be rubbish at it anyway).

Please spare a prayer.....

I've posted previous prayer requests for some of my pupils. I'd like to ask again, for some troubled young people who are acting self-destructively.

So, for Young Masters D, B, and E, for Miss A and Miss S, primarily, but also for the 19 other pupils in the class, whose learning is being so impacted.

And for the wonderful Mrs S, our learning assistant, upholding and blessings.

For management, especially The Boss and The Heidie, that they might grasp this situation, and decide that it might be worth the community's while to try something different for the sake of all involved. And for Mr O, who actually sat and listened to what is happening.

And for me, of your charity. Nothing like a room full of teenagers to make one feel utterly incompetent.

I hope I may be allowed to post a collect here from the current BCP Evening Prayer, which has touched my heart, and which I find especially meaningful and comforting in these days (Source: daily.commonworship.com, via oremus.org/cofe):

quote:
O God, who knowest us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright; Grant to us such strength and protection, as may support us in all dangers, and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Once again I request your prayers for my daughter, husband and new baby grandson.

I leave for Kenya today for three weeks- I offered to pull out of the trip so as to still be available to support them all but daughter insisted I went as I will be working with people without access to the medical support she and her baby are receiving.
My husband will continue doing what he can to help our daughter.

It hurts to leave them but I am peaceful.
Medical prognosis is still negative for baby Beaky but he has begun to suck and swallow which they said he wouldn't be able to do. He is also awake a lot more and moving about and trying to focus.
It would be a huge milestone for them all if they could establish feeding and lose the feeding tube.

Not sure yet what my internet access will be whilst I am away so if you don't see me it will simply be because I can't get online.

Thank you for your prayers

She went to her computer, called up 'Rs' file, and was able to tell me that her vital signs were absolutely stable and that moment, so she was fine! I am seriously impressed with the care!

Please pray for my little brother, unchurched, imperfectly housed and no woman in his life. He has experienced serious reversals and backstabbing competition as well as theft of intellectual property and commissions.

I don't want to see him living in our sister's garage, I mean to say guest room, for the rest or his life. Apparently, the money he spent for two degrees in political science must have been a complete waste. He is unchurched and seems to have no vocational chance of a future.

As for me, I have Parkinson's, unbeknownst to colleagues. My "business agent", though a fellow Catholic is doing a piss-poor job of failing enough work to live on. THE REALITY is that he will put relatives on a gig before he calls me. He is obscenely unsuited to his job and he should go back to the mechanical engineering he studied at university. Nepotism is his middle name!

For all affected by heat or fires in NSW. Some fire fighters had their homes burnt while they saved others.

Today is cooler, helping the firies but fires just about wiped out the small town of Uarbry., including localAnglican church.

No lives lost so far, but the fires are not out and one ex-firie lit a fire because his son "liked fire trucks." Arsonists such as those who lit fires near the house of Shipmate, Barnabas Aus, are regarded as among the lowest of the low. Heavy penalties for arson.

My goodness, what a blow! Electrics?

That's what it usually is round South London. And then a local developer turns up the next day and makes an offer. (Crassus, my friend and I call him.)

But at least two of them have had brilliant restorations with improvements. All Saints, Rosendale Road, West Dulwich, and St Barnabas, Calton Avenue, Dulwich.

So there is hope for the parishioners.
 
Posted by Bishops Finger (# 5430) on :
 
Gas was involved, the Fire Brigade say, but I don't think the cause is yet known.

Potential for a fresh start, indeed...the scale of destruction looks to be on a par with the Dulwich church you mention. A sore blow for a smallish congregation, though.

Urgent support. D managed to do something to the gas stove, not burning properly (not leaking). Son went from phone to check it, leaving me holding, apparently open. No sounds. Didn't come back. I've called police on mobile, then shut down landline and called back - phone rang, so I hadn't been on an open line, but no answer, no call back.

Waiting now for news.

Tried the number again. Thank God, cheerful answer, thanking me for calling the police who turned up in numbers as for riot (I'm told). We will discuss why I wasn't called back on another occasion. (He has my mobile number.)

Am now in very shaky state. Having read, as if it were a last message, and slightly early, a heartfelt poem in a Valentine card. (Much more emotional than the one I sent!)

The police have now caused problems by implying that D's son should ignore her power of agency, get a skip and turn everything out, and looked at him with contempt when he has explained the law to them. "What can she do to you?" being their answer to that.
So from having done the right thing I have now down the wrong thing.

Hello from Kenya.

Day two of the wheelchair distribution today which I know will be wonderful.
But to be honest I am exhausted and I think the stress of the last few weeks is catching up with me.
Daughter and husband are doing well but are still needing to process the trauma of what they went through- thankfully the professionals are on to it. Baby Beaky is doing quite well too but there are all sorts of challenges and daughter is feeling low. I am feeling more than a bit torn in two and would value your prayers.

He was minister at the parish I went to with Rosie when we first got together, and you either loved him or hated him - we loved him dearly, but had fallen out of touch until just recently, when we moved into the same area as him and his wife Shirley. We will treasure the phone calls we had in the last few weeks.

My lovely work colleague L has been having investigations for kidney problems. Apparently they have found 'lumps' and she has been told they need to see her again urgently next Tuesday. She has been told to bring someone with her, which sounds very ominous. Please pray that it's not as bad as I - and she - thinks.

And I'm worried about someone I play online Scrabble with. He hasn't played for several weeks and appears to have stopped posting on Facebook too - both unprecedented. He has a history of severe depression. Please pray for D.

Would appreciate prayers for Auntie K, please. Her sister, Auntie S, died late last year and it's hit her very badly. She has several conditions of the kind that are usually manageable but worse by stress and I suspect she's not looking after herself as well as she should. Her daughter lives with her but isn't stunningly happy herself and has just taken a hard fall which has left her bruised and shaken.

They could do with nothing more than a large hug but that is impossible at a distance of 6500 miles.

Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers.

I should be very grateful for some prayers for me, please.

At the moment my life is very much stuck. I'm all right from day to day: there's not a crisis. But some time, sooner or later, I am going to have to make some massive changes.

This prospect terrifies me. I don't know where I would start; I don't know what I would do; I don't know whether I am even capable of doing whatever it is that needs to be done. What I do know is that things can't stay as they are much longer.

At the moment, I am asking for a 'big break', a leg up, a shove through a suddenly opened door. I know I'll have to put in a lot of work myself, and I'm preparing for that, but without some act of grace I don't know how I'll do anything.

Thank you for your prayers.

Please continue to pray. And for me too please - minor health worries, still unresolved (unresolvable?) church problems and loneliness.

10 minutes to go before the London secondary school admissions process issues its results. Praying for the many anxious 11 year olds and their parents, especially the 10% who are forecast not to get a place at any of their top three preferred schools.

May the process be fair to all, especially those most in need.

May the end to uncertainty relieve anxiety and may all have hope for the future.

I'm thanking God too for everyone who works in education. May they continue to find fulfillment in their vocations while treating all young people in their care with love, kindness and respect.

Just heard that an old friend, Derek, died this week after a brief and vicious course of cancer. Derek was the quietest of men, gentle, musical, and rather solitary. He worked as a meteorologist and was a little younger than me. We intersected over music - he was a very good flautist and tenor.

He walked the Camino twice, and I remember a very happy afternoon where he showed me and Rosie his pictures of the second trip.

May he rest in peace.

A couple of minor things in the Telehousehold: the Telemum has had that cold that goes on for eons, and it’s getting her down.

The Finance Monster has given me a right mauling this month. I’m giving up all unnecessary spending for Lent, which will help, but not enough.

Also for Lent I would like to give up both over- and under-sleeping. It is the horseshoe nail the loss of which results in the loss of the battle for me, over and over again. I REALLY but REALLY want to crack this. PLEASE.

Lots of prayer is needed for our dear friends in the US. They have each some health issues of their own, their teenage daughter is in hospital on suicide watch, their middle son has also been hospitalised due to complications with his diabetes, they've just totalled their family transit van and even the family member who came to help them caught flu and ended up in hospital as well. So far away here in Australia I'm utterly helpless to do anything for them and will feel a whole lot better if I know that there are shipmates adding to the voice of prayer.

Telecat3 seems to be doing very well… with his neck wound. That one’s almost healed. He came home with a wound on his chin today, and if that gets infected I’m going to go nuts. It probably wouldn’t be covered by insurance either, since our orders were to keep him wearing a cone (he scraped it off the first night, which must have been excellent for his neck wound) and keep him indoors (YEAH RIGHT) for two weeks. TWO WEEKS.

For Clarence’s friends, for healing; and for their daughter and son and the relative who came to help. For upholding for Clarence.

For the babies.

For WW’s eyesight.

For healing for Uncle Pete.

For some metanoia for Mary Louise.

And what Golden Key said, amen! For health, general upholding, and private intentions for GK.

For the family and friends of the bike rider, and for the lorry driver. For us not to take (eternal) life for granted but to be more grateful and humble, loving and caring.

For healing for Jengie jon’s D.

For Penny S, and for D. and her son.

For upholding for Sioni in the loss of his brother K. For upholding for R., K’s widow.

For success of Huia’s bold plan.

For Bene Gesserit and for all who mourn Mama Gesserit.

For the Telemum.

The Finance Monster is biting hard and I’m afraid it’s time to let him have it with both barrels. Unfortunately the only firearm I have is one of those pop guns that emits a flag with the word ‘bang’ written on it.

For success of the likely adventure and the very unlikely adventure, and for the obligatory one.

For H.

For D, again, who is now blaming her son for not working to clear their house. He is spending 6 hours a day visiting her in hospital, and has to travel a good distance to do that. She says we should not have taken her into hospital. We didn't. The surgery called an ambulance. She has at least two infections, and confusion.

For me, because I seem to have picked up a minor respiratory infection with sore throat, a chest feeling, and bunged up nose and ears. I know it's minor because I can sustain a loud note for a long time after breathing down to my diaphragm, so I don't need to have to go to the GP, unless it hangs around longer. If it's a virus, they couldn't do anything, anyway. It also only pops up part of the time, and then I'm back to normal. Once on Friday, once yesterday, and twice today. It would be irresponsible, though, to have D back until it clears up. Or to hang around the ward with all the other old ladies. I've had to cancel a long booked dental extraction on Tuesday.

Friars Balsam inhalation, lots of liquid, etc called for. (Is the balsam still available for when I finish this antique bottle?)

And of course, for D's son, on the way back now, and very depressed.

I am needing support to make the right decision over having D back to my home (as it was) tomorrow morning (that's when I make the decision, not when she arrives). It's going to involve a huge amount of moving things around, loss of privacy and autonomy. The only space for me will be in my bedroom, between the boxes of things moved off surfaces she might use to support herself moving around, and the clothes horse drying things. The only time for myself will be after the evening meal, possibly. (Depends on how she is got to bed and when. Depends maybe on carers' visits.)
I am dreading it. But feel it is being required of me.

My friend wants us to discuss this together with the care navigator tomorrow, and with his mother. He is not comfortable with my place being the solution. His mother wants to go home. She probably does not want to go to an alternative care provision. She has accused us of plotting to put her in a home.

I feel that the requirement is coming from God. Difficult to explain, though I could cite things which have happened which have eased the situation. Odd prompts. I was feeling pressure from social services, but this has now eased. They recognise my own concerns, I have the option to refuse.

Being out of borough, support here can only be funded for four weeks, so there would be a limit.

Please pray for a fellow Shipmate, Rowen. She has huge parish in the Victorian Alps and this afternoon pulled over on. a steep road to allow others to pass her huge 4WD. The side of the road collapsed and her vehicle rolled into a culvert about three metres down, landing on its side.

Thank you to all who prayed for me yesterday - the phone call I had today has I think gone some way towards smoothing things out, although there is still a relationship that needs grace and wisdom and a swallowing of pride - that will be a more long-term job though.

Thank you also to those who prayed with me for E, a little girl we know the same age as our daughter (3) for whom I requested prayer last month as she had been diagnosed with leukaemia. She appears to have responded well to treatment, and finally got home last week after a month in hospital. There is more treatment to come, but things are looking good currently.

My depression over the last few months has become treatment resistant and things are difficult. A couple of weeks ago I got put on an antipsychotic to try and sort things out and it sent me doolally. Crisis team involved and antipsychotic number 2 attempted. Doolallyness reduced but I basically slept 19 hours a day until I insisted I stop taking it as I need to do things like work which are impossible when asleep.

The crisis team psychiatrist is coming for the fourth time on Tuesday to try drug number three. I'm scared and tired of feeling like a lab rat and none of this is doing the depression any good.

Prayers for my mehness would be appreciated.

That’s very difficult for you, chive. I will be praying for you.

I don’t know if this is any help, but it seems to me that despite your serious depression, you can stand back and describe your situation without hysteria and possibly even a degree of humour. Maybe that can give you hope that there is a central part of you that is untouched.

I hope that isn’t insensitive of me to say so.

D's situation has gone pearshaped. After telling us that social services could fund 4 weeks at my place (out of borough) or 6 weeks in borough, and getting agreement to the latter, they suddenly added a requirement to check D's bank accounts so they could draw down her savings - on the miniscule interest of which she depends. And a requirement to look at her house.
She has balked at this. I've offered to have her again. The social workers have accused us of changing plans (in response to their switch) and me of agreeing to take D in order to make money from her. (Which I will not be doing.)
Open ended stay here while the house is altered.
Prayers all round needed. (Including the young social workers, dealing with a difficult client, a difficult situation, among a presumably huge number of other cases. No older ones in sight.)

[Votive] [Votive] for everyone. And thanks. Today is the day the hospital transports D to my place. D's son, M, is not happy about this. He is beginning to realise what is asked, and also does not like the idea of D being under the same roof, across the landing from him! I have seen him with her, and generally he is astonishingly tender and caring, except when she gets into WUM mode, to which he responds by getting WU. He is depressive. He will be spending time away working on getting the house righted. And working at his own stuff. I am hopeful about getting her out of the house to day centres. (The local library does family research sessions on its computers, which she would like.)

Strangely, I do not feel the dread I felt earlier. So, being upheld, at least at the moment.

Please continue the prayers.

Please could I ask you to pray for my latest health problem? I am currently on antibiotics for what seems like a return of the infection that put me in hospital for a few days two & a half years ago. I don't feel anything like as ill as I did then but it doesn't seem to be getting better and I'm a bit scared. I really, really don't want to spend Easter in hospital. (It's only the second day of antibiotics so I'm probably panicking too soon but I can't help it) [Frown]

The situation is now unbelievably awful as she is insisting on going back to her unsuitable home and her son is feeling he must go too to keep an eye on her, after a very noisy altercation last night.
I don't know what is going to happen now.
She's fit as a fiddle, and vicious in defence of her "rights" while trampling over everyone else's.
I can understand the resentment of other people trying to take some decisions which affect them which are not the decisions she wants. (Chiefly that she should not, under any circumstances, have a gas cooker.) But her perceptioon of what her home is like is far in the past. If she sees it as it really is when she goes back, she will blame us. She claims to keep it clean. She claims it isn't all rubbish.
She has passed all the tests for dementia, but they are the wrong tests.
God help us.
M says that he brought her to my place which he regarded as his sanctuary from her because he couldn't think of anything else, and now she has ruined it for him.

(sigh) This is a minor matter but it is hurtful. I was going out after work yesterday, and so brought a necklace to wear. I left it in my car, and it has vanished. It was my mother's. I have looked everywhere in the vehicle, and have to conclude it was stolen. Very sad.

OMG. That which is lost is found. I found the necklace again, in a place that I searched before. Only this time I used a flashlight, which allowed me to see a black jewelry bag in a dark crack.

With great power comes great responsibility. If the Lord is inclining to hear, let's boogie. May I direct the SoF's prayers to, say, world peace?

Apologies for not having reported back earlier after my prayer request of 18 April.

As I may need another filling at some point, (in your generosity, excuse the folkrockian pun) it'll cost me still, my gnash.

So sorry to hear that, NEQ. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. +

I'd appreciate prayers for my mum and her family (she is one of 5 sisters). I have one aunt (mum's older sister) who has just started chemo and was discharged home on Friday after the first course - she has a mild learning difficulty and the hospital have been less than impressive about assessing her understanding of her medication, which means that another aunt (who has responsibility for my aunt's medical and health appointments etc) has to spend today running round trying to source a Dossett box. Meanwhile, another aunt (my mum's youngest sister) is in hospital for an operation today - she has an unidentified mass which the docs say is unlikely to be malignant, but they don't know what it actually is so I'm not sure how they can be so confident. She is having a hysterectomy today. And then my mum is due to have cataract surgery next week so is understandably nervous. Thank you for praying [Votive]

Better news than we feared. I found a calm way to tell M that we needed to go to the hospital, we then had a phone call asking how far we were and to come in as quickly as possible, where (feeling what you can imagine) we found D in an oxygen mask looking very ill indeed, but were told that she had rallied since the call. While we were there she became alert, and could argue with staff, but will stay in to have everything done, including resuscitation if necessary, but not intensive care. She has liquid on her lungs, and the ulcer infection is active again. Her skin, greyish earlier, is pink again.
M has been through a roller coaster - sprinted into A&E expecting to be too late, and then seeing her argumentative again, and demanding tea.
We waited until after midnight expecting her to be in a ward, but there is a chain of moves to be made, so we left before the move - she was asleep.
They have our numbers and M will have the handset with him at all times.
We wish she was in her own area not mine, near to people she knows, and preferably back in the ward looking over the Thames, which she liked. But which thought she was bedblocking. She did look fine. She looked fine todaty until about 4.15, and then went downhill so fast that she was in an ambulance by an hour later.
So thanks for prayers.

A couple of sharp hairpin turns in my career the past few days. The one I would love to have prayer for is the fate of these Victorian-era thrillers I've been writing. My agent, having sent them to every market under the sun, has now thrown in her hand. There are of course other options, but I'm going to need luck, industry and wisdom. Which I had not planned to have to exert in this area (she was supposed to do all that!).

Put into google the phrase 'find lost cat'. Find a site like this one, for your area or region. There are a lot of things you can do to find a pet, but you ought to do them fairly quickly. Time is not your friend on this.

Many thanks indeed for all that has happened. When Miss M, now in remission, had leukaemia, I was astounded at the spread across the globe of those praying for her.

I have an update on baby Beaky for whom you kindly prayed back in January.

It's amazing that he is four months old- there have been a lot of hospital visits during this time... His dear parents are exhausted as they have had to fight to get him the help he needs but have thankfully now got some wonderful health practitioners fighting his corner.
We now know he has a visual impairment and some cerebral palsy- the extent of which will only become clear in the future.

For now I request your prayers for the seizures which have been going on for two months- his parents kept saying they thought he was having them and were dismissed. Yesterday a new doctor confirmed they were right and we began the journey of trying to get the medication right so that the seizures are controlled and they all get on with helping him grow and explore his world.
He loves music and being outside so there is a lot waiting for him to discover!

Yes, praying for all affected by the fire in London [Frown] It sounds like the residents were ignored when safety concerns were raised and I know there have been some buildings here where it has been ruled the cladding was a fire danger, so I wonder if that was the case in London. I don't know how companies can be allowed to build with dangerous materials in this day and age when health and safety is supposed to be paramount.

This is relatively small in the scheme of things but I would appreciate wisdom this evening. I have given my word that I will inform someone of something as a matter of spiritual discipline.

Unfortunately, I can see how the person I am doing this too may feel accused by this. I am much more worried that she acted uncharacteristically and am pretty sure that is a sign of stress. I am worried she might get cross with me. I am not in a place to deal with it.

And: the wife of one of my cousins, both in their 60s, had a severe stroke a few days ago, just after church. (They're Methodists. No relation.) She is in hospital in a very serious condition.

My motto nowadays is - "I don't know how I don't just stand outside and scream" (Florence And The Machine).

Most of the children and families on my caseload are in crisis one way or another.

Please pray for all the missing and risk-taking teens of the world, for the parents whose kids are removed from them temporarily or permanently*,for the kids in that situation or still suffering massive harm at home ... and for me that I don't crack up too badly / tell a fellow professional explicitly that they are a fuckwit / commit some other sackable offense. I'm pretty sure that at times I do some good in this job and that the work is being piled onto me because my managers know I'm relatively capable. My managers do know that my current caseload is utterly unmanageable, but I don't know if they are going to be able to sort that out before I crack and say something stupid and regretable under the stress. (I have leave booked for next week - 3rd July - but this week is going to be one heck of a week to get through first.)

* I keep doing this job because I am fairly confident that it is better to remove a child from their birth parents than allow them to suffer (further) serious and lasting harm. However, I often have enormous sympathy for the parents involved who are usually affected by more than one of - mental-health problems / learning disability / absolutely shitty childhood themselves / crushing poverty and disadvantage / no family support / etc.

I am so grateful to jedijudy for posting this on my behalf. I am sorry it has taken me so long to post myself, but I am barely functioning. I have no children, and have always been extremely close to my two lovely nephews (my sister's sons). That J should have been found dead of heart failure (when he didn't appear at work) is still something I can hardly believe. His parents and his brother are in pieces, and I don't know what to do with myself.

Thank you all for your prayers of a few days ago. They were felt, and very much appreciated!

Brief medical checkup this afternoon to be on the safe side. Summer break now.

I'm waiting for a man to come and do a few odd jobs in my flat. I was told he would be here at 7:30am (which I thought was strange but suited me fine) At 8:15 I phoned the firm and was told his van had broken down and he will be here around 9:30. I know many people would just shrug their shoulders and get on with something else until he turns up (or not) but I can't, I'm feeling sick with worry. I find these things very hard to do and it took me weeks to get myself into the frame of mind where I was able to arrange it. You wouldn't believe how panicky I'm feeling just sitting here waiting.

If anyone's reading this please pray that (1) I can calm down a bit. (2) The man actually arrives, and (3) that he can do the jobs (very simple diy) without any problems.

(I think this firm is probably overcharging me, but I have no idea of the going rate. I also have no idea how trustworthy they are. They have some excellent references - but my cynical mind is telling me they could have written those themselves) [Help]

Oh Abigail, I am praying he a) turns up soon, or b) lets you know a definite time.

I am in something of the same state. My guest arranged yesterday, for the practice nurse at the surgery to get the District Nurse to come and wrap her legs today. Sometime. (My guest is now wondering if she made the right decision in overegging the difficulty she has getting in and out of my car and the possibility of falling in travel, thus getting the nurse to think it would be unsafe.) I would like prayers that the DN either a) lets us have a possible ETA asap, even if it is in the afternoon, or b) turns up in the next half hour or so.

I can't go and do essential shopping. I can't start any job that I can't stop at short notice, or is out of reach of the doorbell. (So no gardening.)

New name, Martha OfD.

I hope your person showed up, Abigail. Mine was supposed to arrive between 10:00 and 12:00. When he hadn't arrived by 12:10 I called the company and was told I didn't have an appointment -- despite the fact that I had their email right in front of me confirming that I did!

Thank you everyone who has replied and prayed. Sorry I meant to come back sooner than this... He eventually arrived - 3 and a half hours late and after several phone calls. Then he took over two hours to do the jobs - which I had assumed would take about an hour! But it's all done, all good and I'm very relieved.

She is not a state person, but a Virgin person. Branson gets everywhere.

Fortunately, my neighbour with a key has said he will arrange to be in when we are out, if she comes then.

But I am currently in waiting and not able to do much mode.

Prayers for D, please. She is having dreams of her late husband, then fearing sleep, because "I don't want the horror of living through that again". She is afraid of being alone. Her breathing is not so good again. She is finding the stairs to the loo much more difficult again. She is not engaging properly with eating or with taking her medication, saying "I don't care".

He discharged himself from hospital after a few days and is now causing *more* trouble at home, doing whatever he pleases and letting his parents pick up the pieces after him.

Given that his poor mother L is also struggling with her mother's increasing dementia, unexplained anaemia and imminent placement in a nursing home, plus the approaching death of said mother's long-time gentleman friend, this does not bode well for her.

Problem Cat was on the doormat this morning, having been out all night probably because he wasn’t well enough to get home sooner. We took him to the vet who thought another cat might have bitten his foot not only through the pad, but actually through the bone, causing a fracture. I have never known a cat to get into so many serious conflicts before and I just wanna pray for world peace.

I am going to be selfish and ask for prayers for a ten-minute talk I am giving tomorrow. I am at researchers meeting organised by the URC and this is the first time I have presented any of my PhD since I passed two years ago. I am finding that subtracting a bit of it and condensing down harder than building short papers while doing it. Also, I am in a place where if things go badly, I am likely to respond out of proportion.

Please could I ask your prayers for my son E, who is feeling very negative about leaving his lovely, small primary school at the end of this week and starting a much, much bigger secondary school in September.

He is usually such a smiley, happy, positive boy. I am feeling very anxious, about whether I've made the right school choice, about whether he has inherited genes for depression from me or learnt behaviour, as well as about everything else.

Hard day on Tuesday with daughter and baby Beaky. The extent of the challenges he faces is becoming more and more obvious. He continues to surprise the experts in some areas but the prognosis from some of them is still very sobering. Some of them remove all hope in how they communicate, others are factual but caring.
Poor daughter and husband are exhausted and need encouragement.

Baby Beaky and parents have had a slightly better couple of days with a bit more sleep and a few (albeit small) encouraging signs of development. Unfortunately the new owner of the flat beneath them has started the redevelopment process. The noise levels are ridiculous and Baby Beaky has a hyper-vigilant sense of hearing....the building work is scheduled to take several weeks....
Daughter and Baby Beaky are coming to stay with us for a week (the week after next) but then have to return as the baby has so many different medical appointments.

[Votive] for a group of Evangelicals of some sort on a 'Luke 10' mission trip (or pilgrimage), whom I met in town today; they're letting God provide them with food and accommodation, in return for preaching the Good News, and that for a week. - May they have good, worthwhile and friendly encounters, and be safe.

[Votive] for W, an old aquaintance of mine; he left a message on my answerphone a few days ago, asking me to visit him in hospital, which I did. I hadn't seen him for many years, and he seems to be suffering not just from a pulmonary edema, but the doctors just discovered lung cancer as well. They are unsure of what course of treatment (if any...) to follow. - That W might find healing of whatever kind, and above all, peace, grace and forgiveness in his so often tormented soul.

The Telemum got lightheaded again today and has been unreasonably tired for some time. I won’t be able to watch over her as much over the next few days. I hope it’s something trivial and easily adjusted.

I’m very fed up with myself for my lack of self-control. I found a new church and have been there exactly once. Missed last week. Needed to get up at 7 this morning, therefore I woke up at 9, bimbled around going “what was I doing? oh yes getting dressed”, dragging my feet and generally being overly thorough (aka maintaining at least some of the routines that stop everything from going to rack and ruin, but you know, there’s a time and a place for everything) and of course by 10:30 I wasn’t even dressed. WHY AM I LIKE THIS.

I'm really not coping very well at the moment. The business of getting older with all the various physical problems that brings (can't see so well, can't walk so far, odd aches and pains; nothing serious) is getting me down. and I'm just so lonely.

The church I've been going to for the last six months after deciding I could no longer worship in my old church is lovely, people are very friendly and I've tried hard to blend in (I helped with a couple of events, went on a weekend away with them before Easter) but I feel lonely there and don't feel I could ever belong. But I don't feel I can go back to the other church.

The weird thing about all this is that I'm still connected to the old church because I go in for a few hours each week on my day off from work to help with the bookkeeping! I'm not happy with this and I'm finding it a bit stressful but I'm scared of cutting my ties altogether - and at least it gives me something to do. (Incidentally the vicars of both churches know what I'm doing and seem to think it's ok.)

And then there's the problem of where God has gone. Because he's not there any more. I've almost stopped praying. And I wake up on Sundays wondering what the point of going to church is. I have never, ever, felt like this before since I first started going to church 26 years ago and never dreamt I would ever feel this way. It terrifies me. Am I asking too much by expecting a church to help me with that? I mean if going to church is just like going to the cinema (turn up on time, watch the film, go home without engaging with anyone and that's it until you feel like going again) - then what's the point?

I want to talk to someone but there isn't anyone any more. Just want to [Waterworks] this morning.

Sorry for all that, Just needed to get it off my chest.

Yes, do try to talk to someone - perhaps the Vicar of the church you attend on Sundays?

I think we all feel sometimes - or often - that God is absent, and that's when 'going through the motions' on a Sunday morning can actually help. At least, FWIW, I've found it to be so.

Please pray for my nephew, who has Aspergers syndrome. After going over two years unable to find a job, he finally was hired at a local department store and is doing fine.

However, he has been diagnosed with a hernia and must undergo surgery. He presented his employer with a doctor's note and they reluctantly agreed to a leave of absence. When he returns to work, it must be to light duty (e.g. manning a checkout line) and not the heavy lifting that he has been doing (in pain).

Please pray that the surgery goes well and that he can get back to work and be OK. Hopefully too he can manage the pain until the date of surgery. He is really trying hard and determined to make this work.

My nephew was rushed to the emergency room tonight. He sprained a muscle at work and is in terrible pain. His mother, my sister, fears he may have torn it. They are both certain that he will be fired when he calls in sick after just requesting a medical leave for the hernia surgery. She told me that she is at her wits' end and doesn't know where to turn, that his physical problems are ruining his life.

I had previously told her that nephew should not be doing heavy lifting with an untreated hernia, that his doctor should be kept apprised of what he was being required to do at work, but apparently she didn't heed my advice. She is so desperate for him to keep this job after his going so long without work and apparently without prospects.

Prayer desperately needed.

I rather like that comparison, EM. Thank you. When we had a holiday place in the bush a couple of hours from Sydney, I used to turn a light on if we went out with a probable return home after dark. It was good to drive up our narrow little bush valley where we were the only house and to see that light shining out.

On the other hand, being declared legend by RooK, inhabitor of the nether regions, is definitely reason to require prayer for protection.

Oh my, this is so hard to watch!

Daughter and husband were rejoicing over little signs of development in baby Beaky last week, especially his joyful interaction with them and his love of food.
Visit to consultant neurologist, where it was stressed again that the MRI from birth shows significant, widespread damage to the brain with a bleak prognosis. Although the medics did say the baby is doing very well despite all this.....
Daughter and husband are on an emotional roller-coaster as a result of some people thinking they need constant reminding of what they know and their joy in their little boy is then temporarily taken from them.
As they face numerous ongoing medical appointments, the potential for this to keep on happening is fairly high!
My heart aches for them all.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Posted by cliffdweller (# 13338) on :
 
Please pray for my youngest son. He has always had a profound and sincere faith, as well as a deep appreciation for worship. Even at a young age he insisted that was where he wanted to be.

He is now 17 and off to college on the other side of the (big) state in 2 weeks. In his careful, thoughtful and kind way, he let us know earlier this week that he no longer believes in God. This was not a idle choice-- in his careful, thoughtful way, this is a well-thought out and considered decision. He isn't angry at the Church, or Christians (tho God knows he'd have plenty of reason to), or at his parents. He just no longer believes.

I KNOW this is normal, natural, and common. I KNOW this is part of every child's journey. KNOW many, many, many Christian parents are navigating this exact same territory. I KNOW that some (although a vanishingly small percentage) eventually do find their way back to faith.

And yet I can't stop weeping-- and I'm not a weeper. Perhaps it's wrapped up in his going away to college-- the final empty nest-- although before this week I was pretty easy about the whole transition. But I can't just stop grieving for the little boy that loved God with such a big, big heart, who prayed such deep and thoughtful prayer, and regretting life choices where I prioritized other things over the things that matter most.

I don't really know what or even who I'm asking you to pray for but please do pray.

Hey Cliffdweller. When I lost my faith and discussed it with a retired minister I really respected, he told me "when it comes back, all I can say is, it won't be the same as when you lost it".

I thought this was a nice platitude, but, what do you know, he was entirely right. And I got to write to him and tell him that before he died.

For me with cradle faith, I had to lose it (for me, the knowledge that He was True) to know what I had lost (for me, the possibility of anything being True) - which opened up some new ways for me to think about Him. That took several difficult years which are an integral part of the whole thing, and I don't think it could have been any other way. I am sure everyone's trip will be different.

Praying for you and your son.

When I came back, it had matured, rather like a good wine.

There is a joke about where the Holiest place in London is. The answer is the left luggage at Paddington Station because that is where all the Welsh immigrants left their faith.

On a more serious note, while the little boy can think he has left his faith in the Almighty behind the Almighty never stops believing in him.

That was my story too, so in some ways I'm surprised at how hard this is hitting me. It's not even like I have a real exclusivist faith where I'm worried about him rotting in hell. I guess it just feels like a loss of something essential to who he is, or at least who he was.

But I like stating it in the positive like that-- speaking it into being, so to speak. I do believe that if/when he returns to faith it will be stronger and fuller and deeper.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. They mean more than you will ever know.

And while reading through here and renewing acquaintance with the prayers everyone needs, have felt a momentary sense of being upheld, which is good. Not sure if it is being upheld to cope while things go on and on, or reassurance that things will end soon, but it is appreciated.

The back is a lot better, but the abdominal muscles haven't quite recovered from the extra work yet, so waiting for the District Nurse isn't as irritating as usual.

Thank you for your prayers for Baby Beaky. We are loving having him and his mum to stay and he has coped well with the upheaval apart from not sleeping last night.....
It is hard seeing just how much our daughter is coping with 24/7 so I'm glad we can help her this week. The future stretches before them full of so many challenging unknowns, yet little baby Beaky brings much joy.

Prayers for the family of R. R was a young boy with a similar heart defect to the one my granddaughter was born with. The defect effects about 1 in 1000 children-- R was the only other child in granddaughter's town with that defect. R's family has been helpful to daughter/SIL in navigating this path, especially finding a local pediatric cardiologist and a pediatrician not freaked out by major defects. R passed away unexpectedly last week at the age of 8, while family was on vacation. Prayers for comfort for the family as they mourn.
