THE PRAYER LIST – 18TH. MAY 2011

Please pray for Tracie and Joe who are miserable at the moment because of work and financial problems.

From Brian:

Please add my aunt, L-M to the list. My uncle, B, died last Wednesday after a long and painful illness. They had been married for 59 years.

Also my friend R, who was just diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment.

Also my dear friend G, whose sister died suddenly on Friday at the age of 59, leaving behind a grieving family.

And lastly for me: my job is fast disintegrating, my boss is becoming more hostile, and few prospects for a new job are to be found. I am in job-hunting mode and starting to feel a bit desperate. Every day feels like walls closing in and trapping me in a hopeless place but I trudge onward and upward!

Posted by Jan at YEARNING FOR GOD:

Yesterday I went to see the rheumatologist recommended by friends. He spent an hour with me and then sent me for blood tests, a bone scan, and x-rays. I meet with him again next week to learn the results of these tests.

THANKSGIVING

Posted by Liz at FINDING LIFE HARD?:

SUNDAY: One of April's two sons was killed six years ago serving in Afghanistan, shot by a sniper; as a result she turned to heroin. She's been clean now for three years. This week she heard that her other son is missing in action in Afghanistan.

YESTERDAY: Good news! April's son has been found, shot in the leg but otherwise okay. Thank God!

From THE PRAYER LIST 4th. February 2011:

Leo has eventually packed up his scissors and razors and left. An unwelcome and enforced retirement, but how can a barber compete with the greed and intentions of those who wish to maximize the profits made on their building.

Posted by T yesterday at LIFE IS FULL OF SURPRISES...:

I am simply happy that, after many months of absence, Leo has finally moved into a new barber shop on Main Street, Bridgehampton, and I hope to be one of his first customers on Friday morning!

From ALJAZEERA:

Al Jazeera has confirmed the release of its journalist, Dorothy Parvaz, who was detained in Syria upon her arrival in Damascus nineteen days ago, while on assignment.During that time she was not allowed any contact with the outside world. She is safe and well.

THE PRAYER LIST – 18TH. MAY 2011 — 5 Comments

  1. Unceasing prayers for all. Please add my aunt, L-M to the list. My uncle, B, died last Wednesday after a long and painful illness. They had been married for 59 years.

    Also my friend R, who was just diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment.

    Also my dear friend G, whose sister died suddenly on Friday at the age of 59, leaving behind a grieving family.

    And lastly for me: my job is fast disintegrating, my boss is becoming more hostile, and few prospects for a new job are to be found. I am in job-hunting mode and starting to feel a bit desperate. Every day feels like walls closing in and trapping me in a hopeless place but I trudge onward and upward!

    Lord have mercy
    Christ have mercy
    Lord have mercy

  2. Prayers for all and candle lit. I’m glad the Aljazeera journalist is safe but her eyes look sad, and not so well. I don’t even want to imagine…

  3. More prayers.

    I’ve got a nasty case of food poisoning at the moment (NB: AVOID the “Teriyake Turkey Burger” at, ahem, Jarl’s Cunior!). I hope it’s at its worst: aching, fever (101F. The introductory puking was last night!). If you can spare a prayer, I’d appreciate it…

  4. Things are looking better at the moment here. We got some info that is very enlightening and helpful. Perhaps there might be some hope.
