My wife was just told that she has blood clots on her lungs. She was in for a CT scan, for her heart, and they discovered the clots on her lungs. They have hospitalized her, and keeping her a couple of days. Please pray the clots dissolve quickly, and for full healing. She is in the hands of the Great Physician of course.
Please join us in praying for Denny Ball. Just a short time ago he fell off a roof, and is in route or possibly already there, to a hospital for treatment. Injuries are unknown at this time. Appreciate the prayers.
“HE – Teach me, O LORD, the way of Thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of Thy commandments; for therein do I delight. Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken Thou me in Thy way. Stablish Thy word unto Thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear. Turn away my reproach which I fear: for Thy judgments are good. Behold, I have longed after Thy precepts: quicken me in Thy righteousness.” Psalm 119:33-40 (KJV)
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken Thou me according to Thy word. I have declared my ways, and Thou heardest me: teach me Thy statutes. Make me to understand the way of Thy precepts: so shall I talk of Thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen Thou me according unto Thy word. Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me Thy law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth: Thy judgments have I laid before me. I have stuck unto Thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame. I will run the way of Thy commandments, when Thou shalt enlarge my heart.” Psalm 119:25-32 (KJV)
Five lawyers who defended Meriam Ibrahim, a Christian woman who was sentenced to death for apostasy in Sudan, have been accused of tarnishing “the image of Sudan by allowing human rights organizations to put pressure on the government.” On Sept. 15, they were prohibited from leaving Sudan and face the possibility of having their licenses revoked. Since Meriam Ibrahim’s death penalty was overturned in June, the lawyers have received threats from extremist groups accusing the attorneys of being un-Islamic. The lawyers are not Christians but defend Christians and other minorities in Sudan.
Deal bountifully with Thy servant, that I may live, and keep Thy word. Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law. I am a stranger in the earth: hide not Thy commandments from me. My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto Thy judgments at all times. Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from Thy commandments. Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept Thy testimonies. Princes also did sit and speak against me: but Thy servant did meditate in Thy statutes. Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.” Psalm 119:17-24 (KJV)
