Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

11 12 coffee(1).jpg


Good morning Hordelings. Enjoy a fresh new Open Thread. Just a couple of rules.......

1) Opine and/or bloviate away until KT comes around.
2) No running with sharp objects unless you're a medical professional. I'm looking at you Muldoon and Nurse Ratched to name but a few.
3) Be nice one to one another, even the trolls.
4) Have a nice weekend!


AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com. Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks unless we receive an update.

Prayer Requests:
9/6 – Jewells45 had bad news and needs prayers. Her CT scan indicated several nodes on her lungs, too many to count. It is very probable that she has lung cancer. Her husband is devastated, and she is scared to death.
10/5 Update - She is at stage 5 and has some in her bones, mostly around the spine and rib cage. Her doctor is phenomenal. He said he can’t cure her, but he can treat her and says she could live many more years. Treatment will involve chemo and immunotherapy.
10/6 Update – The PET scan of her bones was not nearly as bad as she feared. It should be manageable with radiation. She is very relieved!
10/8 Update – Jewells sends prayers for all her horde friends and continued thanks for your prayers. She is at stage 4, but the oncologist (who is fantastic) says it is treatable, and Jewells isn’t going anywhere for a while! Her brain MRI is 10/20 (prayers please, that this hasn’t spread). She gets her port put in on 10/17.
11/1 Update – The brain MRI was negative (thank God!) and radiation treatments and the first infusion are set up for the week of 11/7. She also sends her thanks for the prayers, that got her through the initial shock and several procedures. Please keep praying for strength for her as she faces chemo and radiation.

10/10 – B asked for prayers that he would be able to save his granddaughter, Adriana Grace. She has been repeatedly abused by her parents, and B is fighting the State of TN to save her.

10/12 – 496 asked for prayers. His wife is closing on a condo and they will be moving her out over the next 2 days. She will need strength going forward as she navigates living alone. They have been together for 20+ years, and neither of them is all that happy about the split.

10/13 – Count de Monet could use prayers for healing from Bell’s Palsy. His symptoms are moderate or more. He is thankful for God’s protection and blessings, and the power of prayer.
10/20 Update – His symptoms have improved markedly with treatment and his long-term recovery outlook is good. Thanks for the prayers!

10/13 – Nurse Ratched asked for prayers for Marine Ratched, who had a back injury.

10/14 – Madamemayhem asked for prayers for T and family, as T’s sister (aged 63) literally dropped dead.

10/19 – Ellipses (…) requests prayers for a friend, Bev. She has been through the wringer for the last 10 years, only to end up with breast cancer last year, which is being treated, and now… she needs a kidney. She is basically reduced to asking around for one, which doesn’t work well. Any prayers you can put up for her situation would be appreciated.

10/23 – Sharkman asked for prayers for his eldest daughter (age 25) who miscarried on Sunday, losing her little one at about 2 months gestation. She was so happy when she announced she was expecting last month. Please pray for her healing, for her husband, and the soul of the little one who died.

10/24 – Village Idiot’s Apprentice is having eye problems. He was driving on the highway when there was suddenly a distortion in his middle vision, and he had vertigo. They were able to get pulled over and his wife drove them home. He has an appointment with a specialist. Prayers are appreciated.

10/26 – Brother Tim asked for prayers. It seems like he has an inguinal hernia, but it has not been formally diagnosed yet. The timing could not be worse, as he is trying to transition to a new living arrangement and is very busy at work, on top of other concerns. Please pray for healing, for smoothing of rough places, and a little peace of mind.

10/29 – C asked for prayers. He is 77 years old, and his wife of 22 years (age 65) just announced she was “not happy” and wants to end the marriage. She took the laptop and all their financial records, so it will be difficult to work out the details. C has no significant family or friends for support. Please pray for strength and support for C, and also for his wife.

10/30 – Ozborn asks for prayers. His wife is pregnant again, but after several miscarriages, they are too scared to hope this one will work out. Please pray for peach for them as they wait for the first appointment/ultrasound, and for health for baby Ozborn.

10/30 – Tonypete requested prayers for his little boy, on the anniversary of his passing, on All Saints Day (11/1), and also for his mom. She never recovered from his death, and checked out shortly thereafter.

11/1 – Euro could use some prayers, as she is hospitalized. She is out of ICU, but says her (6 broken) ribs hurt like heck and she is trying to prevent pneumonia. She sends thanks for the prayers.
11/5 Update – Euro is home from ICU and her border collie is staying by her side. He knows she is hurting.

11/2 – That Guy What Always Says Yeah Buddy asked for prayers from the Horde for his wife, who is in the ICU and getting a ventilator tube to help with her breathing. She caught the type A flu from him, and he cannot forgive himself for passing the flu to her. He is very worried about her.

11/3 – Brother Tim asked for prayers for his housing situation. He was supposed to move in today, but the promised financial assistance did not come through. It is so hard when his hope is being yanked away at this critical moment.

11/3 – Sal would appreciate prayers for a good outcome for his mother-in-law, who had surgery for a broken hip earlier this week and is resisting going into rehab. She has a bit of dementia, so that complicates things.

11/3 – Sponge’s new-ish boss could use some prayers. The boss has lymphoma and starts chemo next week. He’s a really nice guy and a good boss.

11/3 – Sarahw asked for prayers for her husband, who is had emergency surgery for a torsion of his stomach, a gastric volvulus.

11/4 – Polynikes needs prayers. He has a 5 mm kidney stone that is causing a lot of pain. His own doctor no longer accepts his insurance, and is not confident in the new doctor that he saw.

11/5 – Lola requested prayers for Phil, who is suffering from renal failure as a result of a rare autoimmune liver disease. He has displayed kindness, humor, and patience throughout his life, and could use peace and relief from pain and anxiety. Also prayers for strength and comfort for his wife and daughter are requested.

11/5 – Lola also asked for prayers for Lorraine, who lost her husband suddenly. They had a long and loving marriage even as he suffered severe, chronic illness for decades. Prayers that he rests in peace would also be greatly appreciated.

11/5 – Troyriser asks the Horde for prayers. His wife of 15 years (and the love of his life) suddenly and unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack last month. She died in his arms, and he is struggling with nearly overwhelming grief. Prayers for strength to get through this would be appreciated.

11/5 – Wenda asked for prayers for her husband He’s struggled with Parkinson’s and dementia for several years. Two months ago, he just crashed, physically and in terms of his grip on reality. She had to agree to place his in memory care. Now he has taken another big step down, and cannot make sense of what is happening to him. He comes up with stories of horrible things he must have done to deserve this. This week they will be discussing palliative care and hospice. Any prayers are welcome.

11/5 – DD is a prayer warrior in the Horde. He and his wife have offered to drive to pray with people in the Flagstaff/Phoenix/Prescott AZ area. He is also in Tucson every other week, so could pray with people there, too. Please email me (Annie’s Stew) if you would like to get in contact with him.

11/6 – FortWorthMike sent an update on his grand-niece Chloe. She is the toddler we have been praying for who needs a kidney transplant. He wanted to let the group know that she still needs a transplant, but has made progress. She is home again now, happy and talking and running around. She still has daily dialysis, and continued prayers are much appreciated. They have helped her tremendously.

11/7 – Sven could use some prayers for healing of his incisive hernia on his right quadrant by his ribcage.

11/9 – Screaming in Digital asked for prayers for her aunt, who is dying, and her mom, who may not get there in time to say goodbye.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com.

Romans 8:26-27
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
