How Can I Pray for You Today?

I have received word from my ex that he is sending my older daughter back to live with me. This is good news for me but not for her. She needs our prayers, and she desperately needs to turn to the Lord. Please join me in praying that both my daughters will realize the importance of seeking the Lord with all their hearts.

Please share your requests as well.

Prayer Request

The OB/Gyn called today with unsettling news. Lab reports came back abnormal. Colposcopy recommended.

My 17-yr-old daughter went 2 weeks ago for her first visit, and they didn't even do an exam. Just a pregnancy test. I didn't accompany her to the exam room because I didn't think she'd want me to. I had filled out the forms while we waited for her to be called back.

I had made the appointment because she thought she had a (reason for the appointment). When I spoke with the nurse, I asked if it was ok to use an over-the-counter treatment. She said yes. I was concerned because the warning on the side of the box cautioned against using the treatment without having been previously diagnosed. However, it cleared up the condition.

We kept the appointment anyway, just to be sure. After we got in the car to leave, she told me that they hadn't examined her. I marched her back in there and asked why. The NP told me that (birth canal) exams aren't recommended until the age of 21, or three years after becoming (marital activity)ually active, whichever comes first. "So you don't examine for (reason for the appointment)s?" I demanded to know. "Well, yes, but she said she didn't have any symptoms."

Okay, but she's worried, and I'm concerned because the women in my family have a history of complications, including dysplasia. The NP tells me "HPV is an STD. It's not hereditary." True that, but it's incredibly common, highly contagious, and can lead to cervical cancer. And considering our family's history of OTHER FEMALE COMPLICATIONS, how 'bout a little peace of mind?

So she was examined. And the results are not good. And she's scared.

Thank God we didn't wait 3 more years.

How Can I Pray for You Today?

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Prayer Requests

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

It is my privilege to pray for the needs of others. Will you join me in this endeavor? If you have a request, whether for yourself, a friend, or a loved one, please leave a comment and let me know.

Day 20 - Integrity

Honoring the godly, keeping promises, refusing bribes.

O LORD, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart. He does not slander with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend; In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the LORD; He swears to his own hurt and does not change; He does not put out his money at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.
Psalm 15: 1-5

Lord, may all that we say and do bring glory and honor to You. Amen.
