Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

1 28 23 coffee.jpg


Good morning and welcome to the final Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival of January. Wow, did time fly by.

The regulars know the rules but to those who are fairly new there are just a few.

1) Opine and/or bloviate away the morning until the lovely & gracious KT swings by.
2) Be nice to one another including the trolls of the world.
3) Don't run with sharp objects unless you are feeling brave this morning.
4) And lastly have a nice weekend.


Somebody had a birthday yesterday. From our pal Isophorone Blog: ,"January 27 is the anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791). Here is some music to commemorate the day. I hope the readership enjoys it!


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:

12/28 – Jane D’oh asks for prayers for her husband. He is in critical condition in the ICU. He has double pneumonia that came on very suddenly, as he walked to his car after work. He has no signs of heart issues or blood clots.
1/9 Update – Jane’s husband is off the vent and doing well, praise God! He can’t talk but just keeps whispering “wow”. Everything is looking good. He is expected to be hospitalized for several more days. Thank you to all for the many prayers. They have helped them so much.
1/26 Update – Jane’s husband is home! He still can’t feel his left foot (so he can’t walk) but she will be taking him for therapy. Thank you so much for all the prayers, and please keep praying for them both as they navigate this new phase of his recovery.

12/29 – Cybersmythe requests prayers for his friend D.C., an occasional reader of the AoSHQ, who is in the hospital after having a stroke and some other health issues.

1/4 – G asks for prayers for his brother, J.

1/7 – Longtime lurker and rare poster Don Draper humbly asks for prayers for his mother Marianne, as she journeys through hospice. Her battle is over, but prayers for a gentle landing would be greatly appreciated.

1/7 – Skip asked for prayers. His boss from a previous company passed away recently. He leaves behind 2 sons, young adults now, and a wife.

1/7 – Wenda’s husband passed away. He had been suffering from Parkinson’s and dementia. He went into hospice a few weeks ago. He’d tested positive for Covid and was placed in isolation. She is grateful he is no longer in the maze his mind had become. He is free to be at peace at last.

1/10 – Flounder needs prayers. He had a heart attack but was able to drive himself to the ER. He is waiting on test results.

1/10 – Olddog in MO’s wife had a hematoma on a nerve and is in severe pain. Prayers for relief and healing are appreciated.

1/10 – A lurker asks for prayers for the husband of a dear friend. “Flier” is having part of his colon removed. Prayers are requested for a successful surgery and a good recovery.

1/13 – Village Idiot’s Apprentice requests prayers for his health. They’ve found a recurrence of prostate cancer 13 years after radical prostatectomy.
1/21 Update – A radiation-based treatment plan is in place, which will take approximately 8 weeks. Doctor is outstanding, and prognosis is very good. Thank you all for your prayers and support.

1/14 – John the River asks for prayers for his best friend, Doug, who has passed away, and for his sweet widow Diane, their son, and family. Doug is free of pain and at last sails the blue waters and leaves the shore behind him.

1/15 – D asked for prayers for Sarah A. Hoyt, the novelist, who has been experiencing multiple health issues for a long time. She is struggling to do the work that needs to be done. Please pray for healing.

1/18 – Teresa in Fort Worth needs prayers for help with a decision. Her daughter, Rebecca, is having hip replacement surgery in a few hours. They are worried they are doing the wrong thing. Her hips have been causing pain for many years. It turns out her pelvic bones didn’t develop properly (she has Down syndrome) and her hips are grinding bone on bone. Because of her small stature, there is only 1 appliance on the market, and it may be too big for her. If it doesn’t work, they may need to cut off the top of the bone. Intellectually, they have explored every option, but the Mom side of her is worried that they are making the wrong decision.
1/19 Update – Rebecca had the surgery, and a restful night after that. Thank you all for your prayers. They are feeling hopeful about Rebecca’s prognosis.
1/24 Update – Rebecca’s new hip joint dislocated. She is on more pain meds. They are trying to stabilize the hip and see if it will heal. They have a Plan B if that fails. Lots of prayers needed here, for both Rebecca and her family.

1/19 – FenelonSpoke requests prayers for her church, that if it’s God’s will that their financial problems be resolved so they can stay open to the glory of God.

1/20 – Doof requests prayers for family and friends of the late Mrs. Doof. Sunday, January 22 marks one year since she passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. She leaves behind a legacy of love and faith, and she is missed dearly. Doof sends heartfelt thanks for the Horde’s prayers and love and support over the past year.

1/21 – Jewells45 asked for prayers for the family and friends suffering after a committed suicide.

1/21 – Irongrandpa sent thanks for the prayers. His wife is recovering from her eye operation nicely. It looks as if there will be a substantial return to normal vision in that eye.

1/21 - Duke Lowell requested prayers. He has been dealing with Crohn’s for a number of years and it’s been untreated for the last two due to lack of insurance. There’s a significant constriction in the colon that they couldn’t get the camera past. They took a biopsy and he has a barium MRI scheduled for Friday, 1/27. He promises this isn’t the end of him, and he will be here making stupid snarky comments for a few more years, at least.

1/21 - My pimp shot my dealer could also use prayers for an intestinal bleed.

1/21 Long time lurker, Morgan, asks for blessing upon his efforts to learn Spanish for better sleep, and to find a church in CDMX. Blessings upon the group and moderators.

1/21 – FenelonSpoke requested prayers for her son and a roommate at school, “C”. C had been particularly kind to their son and was a nice young man. He was taken out of school and they aren’t sure why.

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. If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew.

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.
