The Somewhat Early Afternoon Rant

Bumped by Ace: I kinda-sorta stomped the stuffings out of this post earlier so I'm putting it back up. (When I began writing the other post, this one hadn't posted yet.)


So, back to the originally scheduled programming:

"You know, if everything is a social construct including gender, then so is eating. I don't need food. Screw biology. I say I don't have to eat, so I shouldn't have to. And who are you to tell me I'm malnourished? That's just propaganda from the racist white patriarchy in cahoots with Big Food."

Katy must want to see Trump re-elected.

The Babylon Bee reports a leaked memo from Planned Parenthood in the wake of Cecile Richards' resignation as president. The memo discusses possible replacement candidates, including the Mind Flayer from Stranger Things, "a wrought iron scythe dripping in blood", and

Skynet – Our company’s mission is to snuff out the next generation of humanity, and Cyberdyne Systems’ self-aware neural network aims to exterminate mankind. Seems like there could be some mutual interest here. Worth exploring?

Other candidates mentioned: Kermit Gosnell and Pennywise the Clown.

Hrothgar- Lost Son in accident; (1/6/18 ) I'd appreciate Horde prayers for my grandson and granddaughter, both still very devastated by the loss of their father, and I truly fear for their futures.

Methos- (12/12/17) Mother has Alzheimers and friend Herb died shortly before Thanksgiving, leaving a wife with unspecified memory issues and three adult children.

LCMS Rulz!- (12/12/17) 1) Advancing dementia in my Mother-in-Law: we're going to have to move her all-too-soon;
2) Praise and Glory be for the near simultaneous cancer healings among three of my in-laws.

Michael the Texan- (12/12/17) Difficult divorce from longtime physically abusive wife. Please pray for my wife, too, as this divorce will leave her with much less financial freedom.

Elisabeth- (12/12/17) Chronic stress from my perpetually low income is worsening my known autoimmune problems and probably some that haven't yet been diagnosed, and I've just started my fifth course of antibiotics for a recurrent sinus infection and nothing I've tried to improve my income situation (finding a better job, asking for a raise, selling my work, finding cheaper housing) has worked. Plus, I need new glasses but can't afford the eye exam.

Redinabluestate- (12/12/17) Prostate cancer.

Physics Geek- (12/12/17) Both my mother and stepdad (divorced and not together) are suffering from dementia, with my stepfather's case being somewhat further along.

NoLongerInTheBellyoftheBeast- (12/18/17) I need to have prayers added to the list for a friend and cow-orker named Renee who just got diagnosed with endometrial cancer. I could also use prayers for myself. Major joint pain and long term major depression. And prayers for better finances to pay medical bills.

Johnny- (12/19/17) About a year and a half ago my wife divorced me. It was all very civil and amicable. Today she told me (texted me) that she is now engaged. This whole time, I've been torn up and depressed, of course, but, I don't know, maybe I was in denial or something, because when she told me that.. Gah. It's really over. That life that I was so excited about, will never come to pass.

Tone Staple- (12/19/17) For a relative with Pick's Disease, and for his family. Pick's Disease is a form of dementia that starts with gradual loss of language.

Arch Stanton- (12/19/17) My dad is recovering from having a pacemaker put in, and battling COPD.

Captain Whitebread- (12/19/17) I've had to go to the local hospital ER a couple of times since heart surgery because I was concerned I might be having more heart trouble. I didn't, but since I didn't have insurance, the bill was huge. I tried paying a little every month, but sometimes I missed because money is really tight.
Monday, I was served with a court summons. The collection agency working for the hospital is taking me to court. I owe $4500. I have no way of paying in full. I have to appear in court with the next 35 days.
All I am asking from the Horde is prayers that a workable solution might be found. I am not asking for money; everyone has done more than enough after my heart surgery and when I almost had my electricity cut off a couple of years ago. I believe that with enough prayer, a way will reveal itself. At this time, I don't know what it is. But I believe there is one.

Ladyl- (12/20/17) My dad is back on Hopice and isn't doing great.

[i]Anonymous[/i]- (12/19/17) ...Her family has to leave the R.V. park because her husband lost his job two months ago. He has a job prospect in Texas so he is going after it. There are 7 of them living in a 16 ft. trailer but the children are always clean and happy. She has been driving for Uber just to keep food on the table. She's scared about moving, trying to be normal for the kids, doesn't know what will happen if this job prospect doesn't work out. She's got such a good heart and is trying so hard, right now she feels a little desperate and tired.
Please pray for her and her family. I know how much it helps.

[i]Anonymous[/i]- (12/22/17) A dear friend who survived cancer--twice--died unexpectedly Thursday night. Not from cancer. He was one of the kindest, sweetest people I've known. His widow is in shock, and sitting in their house looking at the tree they decorated together, and their gifts to each other under it.

Patrick from Ohio- (12/24/17) Can you add my Sister In Law Denise she suffers from LUPUS like symptoms and nothing is really working.

JQ- (12/26/17) 'Twas an otherwise Merry Christmas, because it might be Dad's last, as he has advanced cancer. Dad (80s) is ambulatory but slowing down...
The reality of Dad's situation hit hard tonight after I got home and my heart is breaking.
Prayers welcome, if you would please.
Thanks, Merry Christmas, and God bless you all.

Jim, Sunk New Dawn- (12/26/17) From a rather chilly Orlando, FL. 89 y/o Step Mom in deteriorating health. One way trip, and a contest as to what gets her first. Water around enlarged heart, or OldTimers.
Looks like I'll have to make a hasty long term TDY to Orlando, for however long time is left.

DaninMN- (1/8/18 ) Daughter came home from NICU and met her 19 Month old Sister.

mpfs- (1/1/18 ) Mom was taken by ambulance yesterday afternoon to the hospital. Possible stroke. When they took her sugar last night it was... 759. Even the neurologist did a double take.

Catman- (1/2/18 ) My dad died tonight.... Please prayers.

Ron- (1/2/18 ) Please pray for the family of Zack Parrish, the Douglas County Sheriff's
Deputy who was slaughtered in an ambush in Highlands Ranch, CO on December
30. He was a true follower of Jesus Christ. Zack was 29. Please pray for his
wife Gracie and the two little daughters he left.

rocketeer67- (1/2/18 ) Praying for strength to get through a totally unexpected, unforeseen and unwanted divorce from my wife of 20 years. Praying for understanding as to why she has asked for it. Prayers that her eyes would be opened to the hurt that this is causing everyone around her, even if we're all trying to accept it (with varying degrees of sucess moment by moment) with dignity, grace, and love. Most importantly, prayers for our young children, who while appearing to be bearing it better than expected are clearly (at least to me) not themselves.

AllenG- (1/9/18 ) None of my normal pith tonight. I desperately covet the prayers of the Horde.
The 9 yr old son of one of my old HS/Church youth group friends wouldn't wake up this morning. They took him to the ER and an MRI found a mass in his brain. A first surgery to remove it was only partially successful, he still hasn't woken up, and he's been back I surgery for the lady couple of hours.
His name is Brody Nelson. I grew up with his mom, Courtney. They and their family could really use a miracle right about now...

Gabe- (1/9/18 ) I have a couple of good friends, Patrick Porter and Barbie Turner who are both battling cancer. A petition to the almighty by the horde would be huge IMO.

Commander Cobra- (1/9/18 ) Prayers for active Service Members and those who have served.

sulla- (1/9/18 ) I'd ask to have my mother and sister-in-law added. My mother broke her shoulder this week, and my sister-in-law is recovering from a liver/kidney transplant.

Fox2!- (1/14/18 ) Please add a friend to the list. She is out of the hospital and in rehab.

jeannebodine- (1/14/18 ) feeling particularly low right now in this brutal winter. My 68-year old husband suffers from Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease and he is deteriorating rapidly.
We have no family around us and friends are thin on the ground, even though we always had many friends throughout our lives. Even close friends have disappeared.
It sure is a different world out there than the one I grew up in. Prayers would be so appreciated for my husband and for me, a full-time spouse caregiver.
Thank you so much. Prayers for you and the Horde from my end.

Mary Poppins' Practically Perfect Piercing- Job issues; (1/16/18 ) A friend's wife of barely 2 years was killed by a train. No word on whether it was an accident or suicide. Prayers for him and his daughters.

Nathan- (1/16/18 ) Kitsapbass (and family) homeless. Long story short. Wife's ex husband has custody of elder two kids, goes to jail. We move in because state is mandating parent must be in residence, requiring us to break lease. Ex-husband kicks all (including kids he has custody of) out of house because he is upset that we are in the house (even though he knew all this was required by state).

Kim Jong-nun- (1/16/18 ) Please pray for the complete recovery of Wayne DuPree's sister who has the most virulent form of breast cancer.

Northernlurker- Wife has passed, (1/17/18 ).

Czarkazm- (1/17/18 ) We are grateful to God for taking care of our daughter in her first semester at college while earning a 4.0 GPA.

thathalfrican- (1/19/18 ) My mother for healing from her cancer and weight gain. My father for having the weight of the world on his shoulders. My siblings for being so young and having to endure all this. My wife for a safe finish to her pregnancy and delivery of our child.
Some good fortune for my family would be helpful heh.

MISH McConnell- (1/23/18 ) If you would Ad Me & My Family as a Sister of mine has Brest Cancer & has to have a Masectomy on Feb. 6th

s738226- (1/24/18 ) Hi, been a daily reader for like 13 years and would request prayer for my renal failure/dialysis and transplant evaluation. Also please for my family and friends, my ten year old daughter, all the nurses and techs at my dialysis clinic, and everyone in the medical community who helps those in need. I have been immensely blessed but would appreciate the moron's kicking in some intercessions on my behalf.

THORAXtheIMP- (1/27/18 ) My friend, and brother through combat, Kevin Krouse took his own life on Tuesday (I only found out last night). I served in the Marines with him for 3 years. I would ask that you post his name on the prayer list so that God might let his family know they are not alone and there are those who grieve with them.

Katja- (1/29/18 ) I can't say anything too specific about my request, just that I'd ask for prayers for a young man, still a teenager, whom I'll call "A", who is battling depression and suicidal tendencies and continually pulling away from the people who care most about him.

SteveOReno- (1/30/18 ) I haven’t reached out before but I have a prayer request for my Son, OReno, Jr. He is newly sober (about 90 days), clean from drugs and alcohol. He is still struggling with the burden of Bipolar I Disorder. He had a psychotic break in 2016, but is compliant with taking his prescribed medicine. He is trying to stay sober and finish his last two terms of College for a degree in Economics. He needs prayers for strength and to make the right choices and renewed faith in God.

Texican(ette)- (1/30/18 ) Please pray for my sister-in-law who needs to divorce her alcoholic husband. An overabundance of hope from her good heart has kept her from doing it, but he has said he won't stop drinking and even her son told her to divorce him. I told her: what would you advise your best friend? Go thou and do likewise.

barbarausa- (1/31/18 ) Son left rehab, texted girlfriend he was "in the woods", then turned off his phone. There isn't a lot we can do but what we've already done, other than pray.
I know there are some major prayer warriors on here, and would be most humbly grateful if you'd send some up for him.

notsothoraeu- (2/2/18 ) Our friend George passed away last night. Please thank everyone for their prayers.

Cheriebebe- (2/4/18 ) Hello,
I would like to ask for prayers for myself please.
I had been having worsening breathing. The little voice in my head said; ‘this isn’t right, let’s get to the Dr.’’ They thought I had CHF and maybe pneumonia. The hospital was FULL so no admission, fine, I was managing. They did a thoracentisis to drain fluid from my right lung as it really wasn’t CHF and pneumonia. Somehow the initial results were a nothing-burger, but when I got in to see the pulmonary Dr. the results showed metastatic cancer. I’m completely blown away. This is a recurrence of breast cancer that I had battled 7 yrs ago. Please pray for my husband and myself as this is a mortal blow.
I’m only 53 and I am simply terrified. *Thank you*

Deplorable Lady with two Deplorable Cats- (2/4/18 ) Please ask prayers for my long time friend, Stephanie. For the past four years of so she was the sole caretaker of her husband, who was slowly slipping into dementia. Ray passed just a couple days before Christmas. About ten days later, Steph was in the hospital for a few days because of a huge blood clot in her right leg. They were still working on that when she returned to the hospital because of a nasty abcess in her colon. They cut it out, but she has to go back for a resection of her colon in a few weeks to eliminate future problems.

auscolpyr- (2/6/18 )- My daughter is an IDD and on the spectrum. Her violent behaviors require her to live at an ICF at which she has improved but still has occasional outbursts in which she wants to be with me. I love her and want her to understand that where she is at is best for her. I pray for her understanding and a ceasing of her negative behaviors before anything escalates.

Please contact Slap through email, as he cannot be around for many of the posts in threads. Feel free to copy and paste emails to him for Prayer Requests.

If he can post in your "voice", he'd like it better. It personalizes the prayer, instead of his shorthand. Be as specific or as vague as you need. Anonymity is, of course, welcome.

He'd also like to pray for the people who aren't on this list. For those who don't choose to publicize their maladies, we understand. You won't suffer in silence. A candle will be lit in your name.

Through the arguments and the infighting, we all love one-another. Through our faults and occasional vitriol, we have found one-another. The beauty of such an occasion goes beyond words and into the ethereal plane of existence.

Please remember the Prayer of St. Francis:


Let us console others, O Lord.
