Friends, I have a short prayer update for you this month. Please pray for God’s financial provision for our family. Many of you know that Leah has been homebound due to physical and emotional challenges. I am now unable to work because of my own health challenges. It is so frustrating not being able to do anything to change my circumstances. I am forced to rely completely on God’s mercy, which is a lesson I need to learn and live everyday. I did not want to share this need, but our Lord encouraged me to humble myself and ask for prayer.
I have some major neurological tests this week. Please pray. God is able.
Here is a Scripture that I am praying this week. May it encourage your heart.
1 In you, O LORD, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! 2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me, and save me! 3 Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man. 5 For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O LORD, from my youth. 6 Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you. 7 I have been as a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge. 8 My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all the day. 9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent. – Psalm 71:1-9
