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 last year:

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.

...and thinking right now of P, a sad little 10 year old who insisted to his parents that he wanted to change to an English medium course at school, this was at the start of the academic year last June. They have just had their mid-year exams and he has failed every single subject - he's a bright little thing but right now he is a sad little thing, too.

Is that one of my favourite little Ps? [Tear] [Votive]
 
Posted by Welease Woderwick (# 10424) on :
 
Yup, your very favourite - he's bouncing back now, as 10 year olds do.
 
Posted by Dormouse (# 5954) on :
 
Please pray for my friends, the Patain family. At the beginning of November A lost her father very suddenly, unable to get to speak to him before he died. I have just heard that G's father has died today, again before G was able to speak to him. It had not been completely unexpected - papa had pancreatic cancer and TBH, had been in a bad state, but it was still a shock.

G and his 2 brothers do not get on, and there is likely to be some accusations, guilt, bad feeling and problems as they sort out the legalities of the French inheritance.

The children have lost two grandfathers in a short space of time, and so this has not been a festive season for them. Please hold them to our loving father. [Votive]

[Votive] for P and hoping all goes better for him in the new year.

My wife and I could use your prayers right now. Some malicious idiots threw a firework at our flat window in the early hours of Monday morning and it exploded, blowing one of the smaller panes* in. Luckily, the flames didn't set anything alight and noone was hurt, but we were (and are) frightened.

Last night was fine but we're on edge and worried as there will be loads of fireworks going off tonight. Every bang is going to be a shocker, I think.

*the smaller panes are still about 3 X 1.5 feet.

[Votive] For jedijudy's continued recovery.
[Votive] For P, and for the blessing of being a ten year old who can bounce back from disappointment.
[Votive] For the Patain family. Too much sadness in too little time.
[Votive] For Sherwood and wife. Under the circumstances, it is probably too much to hope for a peaceful night, but I pray that the idiots won't throw the fireworks against your home.

As an update, my niece delivered a new little Hoglet today (still Dec. 31st here). 5lbs, 3 oz. He is about a month early. Baby and mother okay. Thank you all for your prayers.

Barbara died this morning. 43 years ago I was admiring her wedding dress. She told me to wait til she got the cover off. [Hot and Hormonal]

She wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but those who were her friends stayed friends, through better, through worse. Pray for her husband (an even older friend) and their two boys, my godsons.

I'm feeling highly anxious about a potential health issue which could be serious or could be minor. Hoping to see the doctor next week. But in the meantime need to not be consumed with anxiety and need to be able to sleep better than I did last night. I really hope it is not the serious option. That would be very complicated to deal with in our current situation.

I have a job interview tomorrow afternoon - it should be pretty straightforward (it is for the local nurse bank, and I know they are desperate for health visitors so providing I don't grow an extra head between now and then it's unlikely to be unsuccessful) but I would nevertheless appreciate prayers - not least that I find the interview location in time, as it is in a town I'm not familiar with.

Please join me in praying for A, an elderly and long-standing friend: that her death may continue to be peaceful and pain-free and that her family will make it from Australia in order to spend time with her. Also ask God to bless all the staff in the hospice who are taking such excellent care of her - including the "very nice priest" who gave her Communion yesterday.

My experience of death is rather minimal so far and I found it very moving visiting her today - she was so calm and peaceful. Very weak but very much herself. I also had not realised how important her faith is to her.

Please also pray for my cousin, who gave up work and home a few years ago to move back in with her mum and care for her to enable her to stay at home (which is where she was until just before Christmas, when she went first to hospital and now in a care home), and for my cousin's son, who is a first year at university a long way away and is really sad about his nan. The staff at the home and the doctor think it is only a matter of a day or two.

Praying for my friend B, who is due to have surgery on brain tumours tomorrow morning after a stroke-like episode while on holiday over Christmas. He's first on the list and it's going to be a long op. Prayers also for his wife A, staying with friends to be near enough to the hospital and just waiting to see how things go in order to take her life off hold.

Also for me. I have a horrible work thing to do that I have already failed at several times and I don't know if I can muster the will.

An update on our little canine friend Clancy, who lost a fight with a delivery truck a couple of weeks ago: After taking a turn for the worse because of an infection, he is doing much better; is home, has largely regained control of his nether muscles and even played with his cat "brother" a bit yesterday. His human, who's been very brave learning how to wet-pack his surgery site, is so relieved, as we were. (We saw the accident firsthand and rushed him to the animal hospital,, and it was pretty traumatic for us too. ) Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts.

Praying now for our friend Pat, fighting breast cancer,who is feeling so miserable with her current chemotherapy drug that she's been tempted to stop her medication; and for Linda, an acquaintance of ours who went in for a checkup and wound up having surgery a week later for what sounds like an aggressive bladder cancer. Lord, have mercy.

Praying for all the stated requests and those too painful to articulate.

My housemate's family is coming to Australia on the 5th of Feb and staying with us until they find their own place. However the landlord says they may only stay a month, which given the size of our place is appropriate. They will receive government assistance for their own place, but I found out a couple of days ago that their case manager has families who have been on a waiting list to find a place for months.

The only other option than our place while they wait is in a crime and drug ridden housing estate which we want to avoid if at all possible. (Though I feel conflicted about as I do volunteer work with lots of families in this situation and can't help them out of there to a better home).

The case manager says if we help her find the place it will be a shorter wait, however my housemate wants her family to stay in this area. There are houses in their price range, but red tape insists the house needs two bathrooms and nearly all houses in their price range only have one. Please pray we can work around this and that they are allowed a place with one bathroom. There are only five of them, so I don't see why it is illegal. They will be enrolled in school and English courses locally so it is important for them to stay in the area if at all possible.

Most importantly please pray that they find a place within the month or that they find another temporary place to stay or that our landlord lets them stay a bit longer here if necessary.

Finally please pray for my anxiety over all this as it's going through the roof and making me feel depressed and very negative. I feel like I'm the only one worried about what happens in a month if they haven't found a place. There are some other relatives here, but my housemate had a falling out with them, and though reconciled they are coming back from an overseas holiday today and don't know their relatives are about to arrive, plus have four kids of their own.

I pray that the baby is safe, and also for her and her husband, that they get through this with as little damage as possible. Please. [Votive]

Prayers for us all, who suffer, and who rejoice.

Uncle D is still sedated. Further tests have revealed a spinal injury and possible brain damage. The doctors aren't sure if he'll wake up or, if he does, what functions he will have. Auntie P has cancer and is preparing to have an operation tomorrow. Plus, one of their (grown up) grandchildren had a bike accident earlier this week: fortunately, only the bike was damaged. Lord, please protect them and bring your healing light. [Votive]

My father has his next routine blood test tomorrow. Please pray that it shows that the cancer has gone into remission so that he can stop the chemotherapy. The chemo is doing its job perfectly, and steadily reducing the cancer, but Dad has side-effects and is vulnerable to infections etc. He really needs to be in remission and off the chemo so that he can start to get better.

Sometimes I think that if the cancer doesn't kill him, at this rate the chemo will. [Tear]

Also giving thanks for the NHS.

Uncle D's life support machine was turned off yesterday morning and he passed away quietly at around 5pm. Because she was still weak from her operation, Auntie P wasn't able to visit him to say goodbye.

Mr Bug's car broke down on the way back from a football match last night and smoke started pouring out of it. Thank You, Lord, that it happened in a residential area near our home and not in the New Forest where there's no phone signal. I'm praying for protection now, for me and my family.

My roommate and I are looking after a stray cat we really shouldn't keep (we have too many cats already...and I'm allergic to them!). I took him to the vet to be checked out yesterday, and on the "snap test," he showed a very weak positive for FIV (the feline version of HIV) and a very strong positive for FeLV (feline leukemia). This means he's likely unadoptable, even though he's the sweetest little thing and seems very healthy and robust.

Neither of those viruses equates to a death sentence automatically, but chances are he could have a short, and potentially expensive, life ahead of him, so not many people will want to take in a cat like that. And it's hard enough finding someone to adopt a cat as it is.

We really shouldn't have him around all our cats, though, since he can't share food or water bowls or have any extended, saliva-swapping interactions with other cats.

I guess I'm asking for prayers for the little guy to maybe get adopted as a special-needs cat, or, since there's a possibility this could happen, for his immune system to fight off the viruses. I think that's a remote possibility, but it can happen. He's such a sweetie, I hate that he's basically shut up in our bathroom right now.

We don't know how he wound up on the streets, but he's neutered, and about a year & a half old. Someone might have dumped him, but it's hard to say.

We've been calling him Walker because he just walked in like he belonged in our home (although he actually ran inside). So if you should feel so called to pray for him, you can pray for little Walker.

(eta: My 15-yr-old Taffeta is in kidney failure, but she's pretty healthy otherwise...except she hates other cats. She won't leave my bedroom, which is fine, but the stress of all the cats in the house makes her vomit a lot. That's one reason I'm not happy about one more cat in the house. If you're so inclined, you can also pray for Taf.)

I've decided to opt for voluntary redundancy. I don't want to apply for the new job that my colleague and I are supposed to apply for. My department head has agreed to pay me in lieu of notice, so I'll be leaving in a couple of weeks when the paperwork is sorted out. It's scary but also very exciting. I have 20+ years of service, so the redundancy package is fairly generous and will allow me time to pray and consider what to do next. I would be more excited about it, but I've finally got this cold that's been circulating around the office for months!

Uncle D's funeral is tomorrow. There will be a Mass first, followed by the burial and then the wake. Quite a full day and it involves lots of travelling - not just to get to London, but then to move between the three venues.Please pray for travelling mercies for us and also for Auntie P and cousin R.

As a major cyclone appears to be about to cross into the Australian state of Queensland... As it appears very destructive... As the TV news prepares communities by giving appropriate info... As emergency services get ready to assist....

Lord have mercy.

Tomorrow is THE day apparently. The cyclone is Category 4. Very serious

I don't know if any shipmates are within the badly affected areas but certainly those in Brisbane will be experiencing appalling weather.

Uncle D's funeral went well. Although a sad occasion, it was also a chance for my large and complicated family to meet up. Lots of phone numbers and email addresses were exchanged. And I met a long-lost cousin for the first time, who is nearly thirty years older than me! So, as cousin R said, at least something good has come out of such a horrible event. Thank you, Lord, and thank you all for your prayers.

Reading and praying.

Prayers for my friend whose mother is now ill and difficult for him to care for. She remains difficult and demanding and resistant to any sensible help. She had an infection which made it hard to breathe, and took to staying in the kitchen with water on the gas stove. (It's not the same gas stove that gave her CO poisoning the other year, but she knows what that burning gas can do.) She is insisting on sleeping in a chair, and moving only between the kitchen, the dining room - thank goodness for her soap addiction and the Eastenders festivities, and the loo. She has made an occasional foray outside, but not, unfortunately, to the doctor's. In the past, she has kept all the cooking to herself, which makes it hard for my friend to take over. He is operating on not enough sleep (she is arguing that he doesn't need much, because too much sleep leads to strokes).

I'm going to be away from the 8th to the 24th. My friend is going to need support if anything happens. There are other people, but some of them he doesn't see often. At least one has had to deal with bereavement. The whole situation is very worrying.

Some answers - I happened, by chance, to decide to go into a local indoor boot fair on Saturday, where there was a stall run by Age-UK, and I now have a contact phone number for my friend if anything happens. I also found that my mobile has somehow got on it the phone number of a chaplain who has been very helpful to my friend.

But probably for the relations thread - yesterday my friend was over here, when he had a phone call - would he buy her a particular newspaper to take home? At 8.30 in the evening. In a village. And she has been to the doctor, but told the doctor not a thing about the situation.

I reckon I am on the stress-monster's hit list this year.
Please can you pray for my job situation? I am currently off sick with a broken shoulder which is going to take another four weeks before I am fit for any job which requires me to use my right arm properly. And today I have just received a phone call to warn me that a letter is in the post giving me seven days' notice that my contract is coming to an end.
Money is already tight, blood pressure high and resiliance stretched to its limits. Added to which there are family situations causing considerable stress which make broken bones and job losses seem like minor details in comparison.(I also manage to have conjunctivitis and a chest infection to throw into the mix - a sure sign I'm feeling a bit physically and emotionally overwhelmed at the moment!)

I'd appreciate prayer for me - I finished my job at the end of last week, and was supposed to be starting my new one this week. But, paperwork cock-ups. So I still don't have a start date, and having braced myself for a week unpaid it is looking like it will be longer than that. Which isn't the end of the world, I have plenty of things to be getting on with, but I can't be unpaid for too long with financial commitments, especially as the new job is quite a bit lower paid than the old one. Also, I am getting my flat ready to rent out, as it spent months on the market last year not selling, and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the scary things I have to do (talk to banks, insurance, etc), and the initial costs (which probably wouldn't be so stressful if I knew when my job was going to start).

An urgent request:

We have a consignment of second hand wheelchairs which have been sent to us from the UK.
They are at the docks, waiting to clear customs and we have hit what is a common problem here- "requests" for money far and away above what we should be paying.
Horribly stressful and fairly upsetting.
Please pray for a swift resolution so that we can receive the consignment and help some of the most marginalised people in society here.

Thank you

Chasee#1 has finally had enough with her screwed up husband (hallelujah!) and is divorcing. I am so thankful, I've been so frightened for her. Of course, he's pulling out every stop to bully her into staying, up to him making giant public scenes threatening suicide, telling all her loved ones lies about how evil she's being, and purposely chopping his hand with an axe to show how heartbroken he is. It's been a stone bitch of a last week or so, and she's under an exceptional amount of stress.

He had managed to completely snow my mother and various others into believing a very elaborate set of lies intended to make C1 look horrible and heartless, but mom finally found proof of how much he's been lying and she is now royally pissed. I'm thankful for that- it's been particularly awful having the family torn apart by this. So, while my mother is on the warpath, at least we're all rallied together again, as we need to be.

I'd appreciate general upholding for the whole clan as we help the kid through her transition.

A dear friend's wife of JB and I had a small heart attack. She is getting a heart catherization and I'm a bit worried about her.

I'm going to speak to you, Ladies ,

A heart attack for women is different than a man's heart attack. We get unusual fatigue, sleep disturbances, shortness of breath, indigestion, anxiety,cold sweats, and dizziness.. Women can have symptoms up to a MONTH before attack and unlike men, arm pain, chest pain can be totally absent.
She had some of these problems, but she is a grandma and very involved with her grandchildren, so she kept working over her shortness of breath, fatigue and kept ignoring symptoms. Ladies, keep listen to your body. If you feel sick, check it out.

Please keep her in prayer. Thank you.

(Going to ask someone to look at it tomorrow.) But, it’s like FOUR MONTHS till my contract runs out now, so I’m a day late and a few tens of thousand dollars short.

Oh and, about that, the more I decide not to waste money, the more I waste it hand over fist. I’m going to end up on a TV reality show at this rate. Or just really broke.

Forgive me, I've not been around much recently. However, I would still value your prayers.

Said savings run out in two months time, as does the tenancy of my flat. So either I get a proper job (there are some church things around, but church admin moves SO slowly) or I move back to live with my mum (not the end of the world in my case). Prayers that God's will be done would be much appreciated.

No bones are broken but both have back pain and whiplash, and they are both in shock. Please pray for physical and mental healing. Praise God for his protection over them and the miracle they are alive.

Also pray for the farmer whose vehicle was involved, and a woman who witnessed the accident with her young children who were protected from injury by a barrier which prevented them being hit.

Thank you for prayers. One of the French victims of the Bardo attack had been a teacher at our daughter's school until last summer, so she knew him a little.
I'm sad for all at her school, kids and staff who are having to deal with this so directly. And need wisdom how to help our daughter to deal with it too.

I found the effects of anti-depressants so awful that getting off them after 6 months was a great relief, and lifted me far more than the pills had done.

Although, the bad experience of them probably prevented me talking properly with the doc at times when it might have been wise to, just in case he wrote out another prescription for the vile things.

I need some prayer support - so much going on, and I want to shut down.

I'm trying to resolve a healthcare issue that is keeping me from filing my taxes (I'm due a refund, which I desperately need).

I've lost my cellphone and can't afford a new one, which is impeding my job search.

Oh, yeah, I need a job.

And my car's acting up. That should also be a problem for getting to any interviews (hah! Like that'll happen) or to work till a paycheck comes in.

I'm feeling like such a drain on everyone around me. Especially my roommate, who is bothered with money problems and depression, and yet has to feed me, and I can't contribute anything to the household expenses. I'm really grateful for her, and I try to do what I can around the house, but I know it's rough.

If God doesn't give a crap about me, couldn't he at least take pity on my roommate?

I think this is the last time she'll go on holiday so I do hope it will be authorised.

Her washing machine has broken (we've ordered another for her) and her phone won't do what she wants it to - how much is her angst and how much a real issue, I don't know - but please pray for peace of mind for her and the best possible outcome for her tests.

It didn't go well. I've been given a quote for a huge (to me) amount of money for work I don't want to have done (but apparently have to). I don't know what to do - apart from the obvious thing of getting another quote - but I don't feel I can even cope with that at the moment. I can't do things like this. I'm in a total panic at the thought of it all. [Help]

(There is somebody who might help me with it a bit but I don't know if I can ask - they've done so much for me in th past, I can't ask for more help...)

I feel so disappointed. I really thought that things were starting to get better and now this has really thrown me.

Abigail,

Can you ask very tentatively in a way that would be easy to say "No" to? My father loves being useful to people, he says it is what makes life worthwhile, so if this person is like him, it would be a kindness to ask for help.

May God bring alongside you those who may best bless you with the solution you need.

I too need this prayer fulfilled. I have been tasked with running a state-wide ecumenical course for people trying to discern their roles re prison ministry. The venue is booked, the table laid, the guests are on their way but as yet I have no Spiritual Director to lead it. I have been knocking on doors for many weeks now begging for this loaf of bread, to no avail. If God's chosen solution does not appear within the next few days all will need to be cancelled. It is midnight and I am in deep need. Please pray!!!

Please pray for my 5 year old nephew F. He was in hospital with asthma over Easter and ended up in ICU. Had been at home and doing fine, but today is back in hospital and in the ICU again. Doctors are baffled with his case as none of the usual medicines are working and are monitoring him very closely as he is seriously ill. Please, please pray for him to be okay and for a treatment to be found that works. Also that a preventer can be found that keeps his asthma under control so this situation does not happen again and again.

His asthma was severe when he was 2 years old and he spent weeks of autumn/winter in hospital that year, but has been stabilised with a preventer the last three years so we don't know why it is bad again now. Cold weather is a trigger for his asthma.

I too need this prayer fulfilled. I have been tasked with running a state-wide ecumenical course for people trying to discern their roles re prison ministry. The venue is booked, the table laid, the guests are on their way but as yet I have no Spiritual Director to lead it. I have been knocking on doors for many weeks now begging for this loaf of bread, to no avail. If God's chosen solution does not appear within the next few days all will need to be cancelled. It is midnight and I am in deep need. Please pray!!!

There seem to be no end to my friend V's woes - his grandmother died early Friday morning, someone who has lived in his house or in his uncle's house next door all of V's life. She had become quite frail and it is no surprise but...

So in quick succession it has been a great aunt, a great uncle an uncle and now his grandmother.

Please remember him and his family.

Thanks.

And slightly on that note, a taxi driver was really rude to me this evening, and I was more upset about it than I would usually have been. Luckily my friend was with me and we laughed it off. Indeed, as we walked back past his cab, I may have done a happy dance of joy, just because he had such a happy smiling face.*

I pray that he has a really great rest of his shift, that he has fab passengers who don't try to speak to him, and that on leaving his cab they all give him massive tips of actual money rather than, for example, tips on how to be less miserable, or indeed tips in the form of random dancing.

Thank you Nenya and everybody else who prayed... Today I spoke to a lovely, lovely man who thinks he can do the work needed for a third of the price I was previously quoted. He is a contact of a friend from church and he doesn't think a total re-wire is necessary. The amazing thing is that it turns out that he lives in the same block of flats as me [Eek!] (my friend had no idea until she gave him my address) and he has already done similar work for other people here.

I'm almost afraid to hope this will all be ok but it is looking that way. Please pray that nothing unexpected happens to make this go wrong. Thank you [Smile]

and for the sake of the people of Nepal
we cry to you.

We grieve for those lost in death,
we long for those who may yet be saved,
and we pray for all who need water, food and shelter.

From death and dust, may life yet come forth.
In sorrow and suffering, may hope dawn.
And may courage and love
conquer despair.

In your name,
we pray.
Amen.

And for Nicolemr's S - for strength to go forward and keep going with the detox.

We join you in that. Our butcher is one of a group that has "adopted" a Nepalese village. He has a container on the counter, charging a gold coin for a bag of bones for dogs. Over the years, he's taken the money from this and other fundraisers over to Nepal, building and furnishing school houses and so forth. Last year, the work was to relay a retaining wall, and he says that this measure has saved the buildings. But 3 people in the village died, and he reckons that the true number will never be know. Some villages have been buried deep under landslides and there will be no excavation. The same with roads and tracks. A terrible tragedy and our prayers for the Nepalese and those who have gone to help them.

Thank you for your prayers today. R's surgeon actually used the words 'cautiously optimistic' when describing the chances of some sight returning to the damaged eye. We have to go back for a further check in a week's time. We live in hope.

I'm having another wobbly time with regards to my PTSD. Some of you will remember the crap that went down with our old parish ten years ago. Yep, someone's trying to resurrect that whole mess again, and the American pastors at our host congregation have demanded to know if there's any truth to it. Again.

Sometimes I wonder why they bothered to call us in the first place if they weren't satisfied with our honesty.

Please pray that God's will be done, and that we not get dragged under by fear and anger.

I have not heard anything about Cousin I today. I’m really anxious and waiting for some good news. It is really awful, he’s younger than me, has a two-year-old, collapsed at home and was in a medically induced coma but hadn’t regained consciousness last I heard. If I’m worrying this much at this distance I can only imagine how his wife, his sister and my first cousin (his mother) are feeling. I JUST WANT IT ALL TO BE OVER AND HIM TO BE OKAY.

Thanksgiving for the weekend discernment course I was "leading" ( 2ic to Jesus). After many hiccoughs trying to get a spiritual director for it, we ended up with 3. Despite all the comings and goings necessary, the course ran seamlessly, the participants were mightily blessed and the team left amazed at how deep and how fast the Spirit worked in us all. As a first time organiser, I was being observed. No idea what my report card will look like, but at this stage I don't care. I am definitely waving a banner of praise today, thanks be to God.

My partner is in hospital tonight after a very long day of doctors trying to stop an uncontrollable bleed. She had sinus surgery last week, but is also on anticoagulants. She woke me this morning at 4.30 with blood all over her face. The day has ranged from scary to terrifying for both of us. I had to leave her drugged up to the eyes.

Please let it be a better day tomorrow. And please make it unnecessary for her to come off her anticoagulant - the word stroke was mentioned.

Thanks everyone. Slighty less alarming news this morning, as the consultant opines that more surgery might help rather than removing anticoagulant. Still serious, but not stroke serious. She sounded rather more herself too.

And a note of thanks to my wonderful boss, who came and visited because he was worried about me - at 9pm last night.

My last remaining uncle, now in his late 80s, has been diagnosed with myleofribrosis. Wikipedia says this is a form of bone marrow cancer. He's lost weight and is in pain.

I wasn't close to him but it is still sad to lose older relatives after a lifetime of their being there. I hope my cousins and their mother will find consolation, and that the doctors will be able to come up with something to ease the pain.

And what Nenya said.

Cousin I has been transferred out of the ICU! Yayyy! Into a hellacious noise-pit of an unpleasant ward the conditions of which seem to actively militate against recovery, especially for a heart patient! Boo.

I am so incredibly conscious of sin right now. And I feel like if I could just master this one good habit, a lot of things would improve. But I can't do it.

I was going to do it tonight, but I got interrupted by fixing one of my own increasingly characteristic mistakes. Then when I'd fixed my own screwup I looked at the clock and oh hey too late again. I had ONE JOB.

It makes me feel like every bad thing that's ever been said about me is true. I know for certain that I don't deserve any of the good things I've been working towards. [Help]

On a social media site where I like to hang out was this request for prayers for the people of South Korea, affected by MERS:


quote:
please say a prayer for South Korea as 700 schools have been closed and the 3rd death has been reported. So far 1600 people have been quarantined. Personally, my youngest daughter has fallen ill with flu like symptoms and I am worried because I have been told they are running out of the materials to test for mers.

So please keep us in your prayers and everyone else in South Korea.

Over 900 schools have been shut down since this article was updated June 4th

I honestly didn't know things were that bad.

Prayers for all. For Arabella's partner I pray for healing, no side affects from going off her anticoagulants and relief from anxiety for the both of you. Praying for others who are ill and for those needing guidance or feeling like they don't deserve a good life. Praying you can see yourself as God sees you, Telepath. We are all sinful and make mistakes, but you are a good and valuable person.

Thankyou for the recent prayers for my nephew who was in ICU with severe asthma. He has been home for a few weeks now with no further asthma. Doctors decided it was triggered by a virus and he does not have other allergic triggers, so he should be mostly okay, but may end up back in hospital when he gets colds or other respiratory illness in the future. Praying he doesn't have such a bad attack of asthma ever again.

Please pray for my Nanna. She has had problems with her back the last few years and had surgery that just made the pain worse as it caused a pinched nerve. She has been on pain killers the last couple of years as surgeons did not want to risk further surgery as she is 89 years old. However this week the pain has been much worse and has affected her leg badly, limiting her ability to walk. After a lot of tests and assessments they have decided to go ahead with the surgery next Wednesday as she is otherwise in very good physical and mental health.

I caught up with my parents and grandfather last night and my grandfather was telling lots of stories from the past and we could tell he was very worried that something might go wrong and he will lose his wife of over sixty years. He is in amazing health for his age, but suffers from anxiety at times and is obviously finding the situation very difficult.

Please pray for healing for my Nanna. Ideally it would be better for her not to need the surgery, but I know that would take a miracle. So please pray that if it goes ahead it will be successful and she will come through it ok and with an improved quality of life.

Thank you all for your prayers.

Babs has been in the hospital for 11 days now, and has had 5 operations on her foot. She has one to go tomorrow and maybe one more. They were able to keep much more of her foot than they feared, and it's no longer touch-and-go, but she's got a long road of physical therapy ahead of her once she gets out. She has had a steady stream of visitors, and was able to get outside today and see her dog, who has missed her greatly and vice-versa. Josephine is going to fly down there probably by the end of this week.

Cousin I. was actually able - very slowly and while pouring with sweat - to take his toddler daughter across the street from the hospital to a park, and push her on the swings.

Tomorrow I am due to have a minor operation on my wrist (which has been gammy since I had The Elf Lass 18 months ago). I have had steroid injections in it, but they won't do any more, so this is my last option. It's allegedly a self-limiting condition (ie will heal by itself eventually) but isn't showing any signs of limiting itself, hence the surgery. So I'd appreciate your prayers, a. that it actually works, so that b. I can pick up my daughter without being terrified I'll drop her. Also c. I don't freak out (can't say the prospect of a general anaesthetic is top of my list of things I'm looking forward to), and d. that I'm not out of action for too long. TME will have to do the bulk of looking after The Elf Lass till I'm out of bandages, so prayers for him too would be great. Thank you.

Glad to hear Pearl before Swine is home and prayers for everyone who is having surgery soon and for other needs.

My Nanna's operation was yesterday and the surgeon is happy with how it went. She was under anaesthetic for 5 or 6 hours! However apart from some temporary breathing issues due to reflux and lying on her stomach for the duration of the operation, she is recovering well. She now has to go through rehabilitation so please pray that will go smoothly and that post-surgical healing takes place in a timely manner.

I visited the night before the op and she was in good humour then. She has had a few screws inserted in her back and she was joking then that she hoped none would get lost inside her or she would 'have a screw loose'.

Sorry, I shouldn't have posted this. I just felt really frustrated. Feeling a bit better now. It's not really as bad as I made it sound. It's just so disappointing that I feel on a different wavelength from most people there. But finding somewhere else just isn't an option for all sorts of reasons.

I do talk to one of the clergy, and he's always sympathetic. But there's a limit to the amount of times I can moan at him about what I think is wrong with the church.

Thank you for your prayers.

I would like to ask your prayers for Frank, the nephew of my late husband.

Three years ago his wife, Sue, was diagnosed with cancer. She underwent any amount of chemo, but it kept spreading. Three weeks ago, she died.

Frank's mother, Betsy, died last week. She was ninety years old and had been failing for quite a while. She died peacefully of a heart attack.

These two deaths so close together are extremely hard on Frank. As he said to me, he lost the two important women in his life in less than three weeks. Please pray that God gives him peace and strength.

Also, he asked me to try to locate and notify a relative of Betsy's who used to live here in Blacksburg. He no longer lives where he used to, and I can't find him. I turned the problem over to my daughter Jan, who is very good at research, including locating people. This is important because I think Frank urgently needs to hear that at least one problem has been solved.

You might spare a prayer or two for Sue and Betsy also.

Thanks.

Prayers are always available here for broken wrists.

I did both of mine at the same time in a gym accident when I was 14. The orthopod took pity on me and let me off with a wrist cast on my left arm, or I'd have needed my mom's help with everything. Can't imagine much greater humiliation at that age.
 
Posted by Diomedes (# 13482) on :
 
...and continuing prayers for broken wrists are much appreciated. Mine now has metal plates holding it in position but the swelling is dramatic, especially in my fingers which I am supposed to be moving, and the pain is fierce! I don't want to be a wimp but some relief from the pain would be good - especially at night.

Prayers for all, especially those with broken bones.

My twelve year old granddaughter broke one wrist at school last year. Plaster cast to elbow to deal with that. She broke other arm a week later near the elbow and cast went up to her shoulder. I asked her how she managed and did she need help. She assured me she could cope.

I know it is trivial compared to the above but I have an assessment centre day / interview in central London tomorrow for a job which I am unlikely to get but which would change my life if I did.

Because of the tube strike, I will have to get up at 5 for an 8am start (it goes on until 6pm and they advise you to "get a good night's sleep beforehand, as it will be challenging"...).

I am really worried I won't get there on time (have to take bus) and so nervous I probably won't sleep at all...

Sorry for venting but prayers for peace of mind and that I can focus on doing my best would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Just heard that my cousin's husband has had a massive stroke and has had to go into a care home, with the house having to be sold to pay for his care. Which leaves my cousin looking for somewhere to live and trying to cope and carry on.

She lost her parents last year and although she is a strong person, it does rather feel as if life is dumping on her right now. Please pray that she will be able to find somewhere decent to live and that things will work out for her. Thank you.

This was my news on this thread on 14 June. My brother died of a sudden heart attack, so mercifully quick and as illness- and pain-free for him as possible, which I'm thankful for.

I was his next of kin and in addition to the funeral to arrange and the paperwork (Mr Nen's department) there has been sorting out to do. He left a lot of mess behind. It has been hard distressing work.

Mr Nen and I are going away for a few days next week for some time out, so I won't be around for a bit again, but I will be back and your continued prayers for me and my family are very welcome. [Smile]

And the reason I wandered onto this thread... one of my aunts died last night/early this morning. Prayers welcomed for my uncle, who is having to cope with the death of his wife and friend of at least 50 years, and my cousins and their children in that branch of the clan. We won't find out till Monday if there's a post mortem required, but it was sudden death, so seems likely.

In comparison, my problems are like a hornet trapped in my car-- only dangerous because of placement and timing.

On one of my jobs, I managed to wrack my back up. Since it is not the current job I am in, I cannot file for worker's comp. I have been trying to self treat (ice, heat, OTC meds) , but it keeps getting worse.

I am getting a chiropractor's appointment next week-- out of pocket-- and will be sucking up whatever time I take off, as I do not get paid time off in my current job.

Add to that-- I filed for income based repayment of my student loan about two months ago, using an on line tax info recovery system. Somehow the info I submitted has not landed yet. As a result, they have changed me form an income based plan to a ten year plan-- pretty much the plan that figures the highest amount per month. It will be only slightly less than a low end apartment rental rate. I can't afford it. I have to call tomorrow-- in the middle of the work day--to sort it out.

So, first of all , prayers that I can sort out the FSA mess without losing my shit at work. Seriously, pray on that. Second, please pray that some sort of light at the end of my very dark financial tunnel will manifest itself.

And my apologies to everyone suffering much, much worse problems-- prayers to you all, and forgive my panic about money matters.

It looks as if my brother in law will need an operation on his right eye - the left one is clearing well after two rounds of laser treatment but the right one has clots that need clearing.

eta: as he has had bypass surgery he needs permission from cardiac surgeon before the eye surgery can go ahead.

Another re-organisation at work. Another opportunity for even longer and more impressive job titles to be given to people who don't appear to have any skills or, indeed, to actually *do* anything.

I'm feeling bitter and disillusioned and not sure I can take another round of this.

This is an incredibly selfish post, I know, but I really need God and I really need all of you to keep me doing the very little things I can do with as much love as possible.

Thank you.

The wedding is tomorrow. The father of the groom is now in hospital. It has been discovered the cancer is not just in his major organs, but also through his bones - in particular the spine. It is doubtful he will get to the wedding for even an hour.

I have been told prayer is my department. Thank you for praying along with me for this family. I have suggested to them that if he is allowed out they station two friends with him so that his wife at least can spend some time focussing on the celebration she has done so much to organise. (Garden wedding with a celebrant). May the Spirit enfold them all anyway.

Thanks everyone. I'm hoping the son doesn't go on such a bender he can't stand up at the wedding. If anything would make you reach for the bottle, this situation probably would.

But then if Jesus could happily provide new wine to the wedding guests after a couple of days of drinking, maybe the best toasts are yet to come.

I'll report back when I hear more. Wedding is at the other end of the continent from me. I am looking after the groom's great grandmother who is on antibiotics at the moment for a bladder infection. They wanted her to go, but at 97 the effort involved was just too much.

[Votive] for all

Please pray for my friend N. She's a bit of an over sharer on face book sometimes and about a week ago shared that she believes happiness is a choice so she is going to stop taking her antidepressants cold turkey against her doctor's advice. Myself and another friend were supportive, but also let her know anti-depressants are ok if she needs them. I felt like saying straight out it was a bad idea, but knew that wouldn't help. She reacted negatively to even the suggestion she might need her medication.

Now she keeps writing negative posts about herself and some posts are quite erratic. Tonight she posted about having trouble writing a cover letter due to low self esteem. When I and a few others tried to encourage her and offer help she wrote that it was a pointless posting her problem as she probably didn't have friends. Totally illogical in a conversation where a number of her friends were trying to help her. I'm really feeling worried that she is not thinking clearly.

She is a young single mum with little family support and is trying to juggle being home for her daughter outside of school hours with the need to work to support herself and her daughter. I wish I could offer more practical support, but I don't live near her and don't drive, so with my own work commitments etc. there's not much I can do eg. childcare.

Prayers really needed.

Thank you to God, and for your prayers. The father of the groom made it to the wedding for an hour. He is back in hospital, but the pain has been arrested and he begins chemo tomorrow on the most aggressive of the cancers (size of a matchbox on the aorta). The prognosis is still not good, but it may slow things down enough for him to meet his first grandchild.

The bride and groom get back from their brief honeymoon tomorrow.

Interestingly when the grooms parents got married, the father of the one now suffering from cancer was also at the wedding in a wheelchair. A family tradition I sincerely hope does not get carried on any further.

My brother-in-law Charlie could use some prayers -- he is combating both alcohol and depression, and his girlfriend died last night.
I had left messages all over creation for my other brother-in-law, the Lutheran pastor. But cleverly I remembered that I had done a MW report on his church some time ago, and was able to go back to that report, find the web site of the church, and reach him immediately by phone, and he will contact Charlie. So yay, Mystery Worshipper!

Just had to call the cops for the first time ever. What sounded like major domestic violence argument happening out in the street.
Unfortunately, I didn't see them, and I can only vaguely guess which house, so there's not much that can be done.

Please pray for the woman - that she'll be safe - and that the one house the cops are going to check is the right one.

Last-minute prayers would be appreciated: I have a job interview in an hour and a half. I don't know if this will be the job I want, but I need something!

And today I learned that my former job, which was eliminated on me in Spring '14, has been re-created. It looks like with more hours, too, which is what I needed at the time. I live on the opposite side of the country now, but it still stings a little. (The employer in question has had a change of leadership, and I think the new boss sees that it was a mistake to eliminate my job.) So, anyway, that has me feeling a bit of a sting, especially since I'm still unemployed well over a year later... I've been feeling quite depressed the past few weeks, and this doesn't help - but I need to present myself well today!

Friend's mother who has been reminded of her pain from a stillborn daughter half a century ago by a TV soap last night, in which the issue was dealt with so humanely by hospital staff, as her case was not. "You can always have another one.." She could not. The child was buried in someone else's grave, unmarked.
The pain is taken out on her son, who, though a toddler at the time, somehow must carry some of the blame.

Prayers please for my move. Still having trouble getting motivated.

And my S is in extremely poor shape. I'm horribly worried about him. The only good thing is he claims at least not to have had any alcohol for a week, don't know if it's true or not though.

I popped round to see my friend M last night, a welder by trade - on Tuesday he was using some rather inadequate welding goggles and now is, temporarily, banned from reading, watching TV or driving! He is mostly spending time in his room in the dark [listening to the radio] to help the healing process.

Darker goggles are on the way.

And now his maternal grandfather, widowed a year ago, is in hospital.

Japan is currently experiencing a typhoon that is bringing intense rain, with severe flooding. The town of Joso has been largely washed away. BBC report.

At present we have an alert status here. It has raining very heavily, but the river is still where it belongs. At this moment in time, the rain has stopped. I still think I'll move difficult to replace stuff (eg: this laptop with all it's store of photos) to the top cupboards tonight as I'm in a ground floor apartment right next to the river.

I know there are mixed opinions on the migrant influx into Europe but this is just dismal by anybody's standards.

Please spare a thought and a prayer for people who will spend this coming night with no roof over their heads, in wet, muddy conditions, possibly without food. For those who have to be strong and try to encourage and give hope to children, the elderly, the disabled and others who depend on them.

I've had some life-changing news. I'm pretty sure that in 5 years time I will think it's good news to have had, but it is going to take some getting used to and I've been crying with shock / stress / tension for over 30 mins now.

I also desperately want to stay on top of work while processing said life-changing news - but my work is frequently stressful and doesn't have quiet periods to nicely fit with times when a lot is going on in one's personal life (stress of work has probably also contributed to me crying for the past half hour, but shock of the news is probably a bigger contributor).

And my best friend's phone is fucking broken so I can't talk to them for support.

And there is a really good thing which I want, which might possibly happen, but I am trying really hard to pray 'Thy will be done' rather than 'I want! Give me!', but I think it would be a very good thing which I really would like to happen, but I know God's views on what would be really good for us don't always coincide with our own.

I would appreciate prayers for my father. He's in remission from myeloma, and is due to have minor surgery on 1 October. However, he came down with a mild case of shingles last week. His GP says the shingles will have cleared before the op, but he's worried and down; the op will make him feel much more comfortable and any prospect of it not happening is depressing. Also, he has monthly blood tests for the myeloma coming back, which will mean going back onto chemo, which is also stressful.

Please pray
1) that the shingles clear rapidly
2) that the op on 1 October goes ahead and is successful
3) that the myeloma doesn't recur anytime soon
4) that his spirits lift.

Thank you.

Friends, please pray for me. This evening I saw the woman who bullied me in the workplace for two years, and who was intrumental in my second redundancy.

This was ten years ago, and she is now working in marketing, the job I did for her, of which she at that time had no understanding, and in which she was determined I had zero competence.

I sat through the first half of the concert wondering: should I tell her I've forgiven her? The opportunity didn't present itself, and in the end I just had a lovely evening with friends at a wonderful concert. So much stuff has been flung up into the air though. I am putting it all down at the foot of the cross.....

Thanks for your prayers. Here in the Alleghany mountains we only got an inch of rain. We do have a high wind warning. With the saturated ground, it's likely that trees will go over.

South Carolina got a huge amount of rain, and it's predicted that they will get another fifteen inches in the next few days. Please keep them in your prayers.

What is it reasonable to expect from church? Is it reasonable to expect anything?

I went to church this morning for the first time in three weeks. I missed the last two Sundays because I wasn't feeling very well and I just couldn't be bothered to make the effort. I hate not going because I feel so lonely just sitting at home by myself. But I hate going now because I feel just as lonely.

I want some sort of connection. With God. With other people. But I don’t get it. All I get is loneliness and frustration. I can’t see the point any more. Everyone else seems to think it’s such a wonderful church, but I just don’t seem to be on the same wavelength as anybody else there.

It's go along, sing a few songs, have a cup of coffee and go home again without engaging with God or anyone else and that’s it until next Sunday. What’s the point?

I know it’s my fault. I've never been any good at talking to people, I've never known how to make friends. I make people feel uncomfortable. I'm too old to change now.

Don't know what to do. Hate Sundays these days.

[Votive] for all in need, especially North East Dad, Mad Cat's CD, those affected by the floods, and especially Abigail.

There's absolutely no shame in feeling that your present church doesn't suit you: when I hit my teens (a very long time ago [Hot and Hormonal] ) I felt like that about the church I'd been brought up in, and found a different one (which happened to be the local cathedral).

I've suggested this before to people who are feeling a bit disaffected, but don't want to give up altogether - if you can go to a Cathedral choral evensong (Sunday or a week-day one), you can be as anonymous as you wish. In my experience, cathedrals are welcoming but not intimidating; you can just let the beauty of the building, the music and the liturgy inspire you, without fear of being buttonholed and asked to join the Altar Guild ...

Since this is the first one I've written, and I did so with little or no training or support, and it still got the approval of my boss (since it had to be submitted in his name, as I'm not senior enough) and he's expert in evaluating research quality, I don't think I'm going to get disgraced over this.

About a month ago I fell off my front steps onto my concrete driveway. It was a cold day and I was well wrapped so I thought only my dignity was hurt [Roll Eyes] but I later found I had a bruise the size of my hand on one breast. It's faded now but I am left with a lump so my GP is sending me for a mammogram, which is apparently the usual protocol here if a breast lump doesn't go away.

I know it is probably just the injury, but having had a previous lump removed and another one investigated I am [Paranoid]

I would appreciate prayers because in my head I think I'm over reacting, but believing that isn't stopping me doing it.

[Votive] Huia - I had a breast lump recently and knowing a little bit about these things know men can get breast cancer, too and was convinced that's what it was and was gearing myself up to go to the local medical college hospital - and the lump, which had hung around for a couple of weeks, disappeared overnight.

My sister's little dog (ten-pound pug-chihuahua mix) was off-color yesterday, not eating very much, quieter than usual. Today she threw up (said my sister) what looked like a quart of blood, more than it seemed she could possibly have had in her stomach. She's in the hospital tonight with suspected hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. Please pray for a quick recovery.

Sorry for slow update, had a lot on. Sister turned up just as I was getting the phone number for the pub to tell them we would be late. She had left late because the friend she has staying because of back injuries was not in a good mood because of the badgers in the garden. There had been a lot of hold ups en route. She had got off the motorway at the wrong junction and got lost - actually coming past the pub we were going to. After the meal I had a long phone call from a friend who needed a boost.
The next day we had to get up early to go north of the river (Thames) in case of gridlock at the crossing to go to our cousin's funeral. She was one of the younger ones of our generation, so it was a bit gloomy. We hadn't seen each other for a long time, so her photo on the service order, looking like my passport picture was another negative. (I had never thought we were alike, but her neighbour said that seeing me was eerie as our profiles were the same). Please think of Helen, Frances' sister, and Donna, Laura and John, her children, with her grandchildren. Frances' death was sudden and not very pleasant to have to think about. She fell in the house and could not get up, her foot being trapped. She wasn't found for 28 hours, when Donna had the house broken into, but although they got her to hospital, she then had a heart attack.
Then we took my other sister to the cemetery where her first husband's ashes are.
Yesterday, I spent a lot of time asleep after Susie went home. And there were other family issues to think about, which I will have to work out how to approach.
Thank you for your prayers, and sorry not to have got you up to date sooner.

Please pray for my niece. She is bright, but does not perform well in tests, particularly wordy tests. So much so that the mismatch has resulted in concern for my sister.

It is slowly dawning on us that it may be due to a minor physical disability that directly impinges on here ability to read. We have known about the disability almost since she was born but had not previously put 2+2 together. It looks as if it is treatable, but I suspect the treatment isn't available in the UK.

This means that my sister now has to fight to get the adaptation/treatment that my niece needs to perform to her intellectual ability.

Please pray for T, the mother of seven children, 23-3 years old. She collapsed and doctors found a perforated bowel. She has had four operations and is in an induced coma. There are more perforations, but the surgeon says he can do no more and wants to send her to a hospice. The hospital is not quite so pessimistic and are keeping her in coma in ICU in the hope she may be able to heal herself.

The family is devatated, they are very close. The children, even the young ones have seen their mum and held her hand and told her they love her.

I give thanks for the superb care she is receiving, and for the endless stream of relatives who are popping in to support me and my brother and to sit and talk to Mum about their shared memories. Sometimes its great to have so many rellies.

I'm also praying for my Aunty Margaret, born in the same year as Mum, and one of her closest friends for her entire life. Aunty Margaret is one floor up in the hospital, also very ill, but hopefully not dying. We've been visiting her every day - she can't come and see Mum and is very distressed about it.
