Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

willowunnamed (6).jpg

(H/T Sharon, Willow's Apprentice)

Where the heck has July gone? Happy Saturday morning.

Rules? Wing it, it's an open thread.


To tip or not to tip? 3 reasons why tipping has gotten so out of control

It has become as much a part of our daily lives as getting our to-go coffee: the screen turn.

It's the moment when you've ordered your coffee and the barista turns the payment screen toward you, with prompts asking you for a tip.

Tipping is on the rise across the U.S. as more and more businesses have started asking for a little extra: Fast food restaurants, grocery stores, plumbers, online retailers, stadiums, and even self-checkout machines are now asking for a tip these days.


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:

6/24 – Jewell’s niece is not handling the chemo well. She has been very sick since last Tuesday. Jewells was also sick most of last week, after radiation and chemo.
7/8 Update – Jewell’s niece went in for her second infusion treatment, but they couldn’t do it because she had a UTI. She’s so depressed. The doctors will probably make some changes to her drugs, since she has felt so awful.

6/20 – J requested a prayer for her younger son Matt, whose seizure symptoms are returning again after 20 years of normalcy. So far he has not had a full-blown seizure, and the doctors are working to adjust his medication. But he can feel them in the background and they are interfering with his ability to do his job. Also, his second child is due in September.

6/24 – Fox2! asked for prayers as he had to spend the week in the hospital with AFIB.

6/24 – Screaming in Digital asked for prayers for an old friend, who was fighting cancer. The latest news was not good, but he is still receiving treatment.

6/24 – RetSgtRN asked for prayers for her son-in-law, Kenny, who at 37 is battling acute leukemia. He beat lymphoma 2 years ago. He has 2 boys, ages 3 and 7. He is also a police officer in a very large city and fortunately his boss has been supportive. Thanks to all for your prayers!
7/1 Update – Kenny is in remission. Now he will begin treatments for his bone marrow transplant, which will require him to remain in the hospital for 100 days, including part of it in isolation.

6/27 – Catch Thirty-Thr33’s father will return home from the hospital, and he will be visited by a hospice nurse twice a week. He is 82 now and has been fighting lung cancer for 18 months now. Please pray for him.
7/10 Update – Catch Thirty-Thr33’s father passed away today.

7/1 – FenelonSpoke asked for prayers for the woman that she is running with for township committee. The woman is having bad digestive pain.

7/1 – rhennigantx asked for prayers for his buddy Jason, who lost a good friend to an overdose. Jason is very angry at a (so called) friend who gave the other friend the drugs.

7/1 – JM in Fla/III asked for prayers for his brother and sister-in-law, who are struggling with their adult son; he is schizophrenic but does not always take his medicine.

7/4 – neverenoughcaffeine asked for prayers for Tom, Andy, and Wilson. Their wife and mom Yumiko died in a freak accident on Sunday and Tom was severely injured.

7/7 – Misanthropic Humanitarian asked for prayers for his friend, Lonesome Ed. He has knee issues and will be undergoing surgery later this month.

7/8 – Tuna said she could use some prayers. Her husband passed away on 7/8.

7/8 – LenNeal posted some updates that he has serious heart damage after having Covid multiple times and the J&J vax.

7/8 – RedMindBlueState requested prayers for his oldest childhood friend (and occasional lurker), whose wife has colon cancer. They don’t know what stage or treatment yet, but could use prayers.

7/8 – Emmie asked for prayers. Her husband is having a pacemaker implanted on Tuesday. She asks for prayers for a successful procedure, a full recovery, and improved energy and function.

7/13 – FenelonSpoke requested prayers for Dr. M and his medical team, for his upcoming heart surgery.

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. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks or so unless we receive an update.

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.
