The Classical Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

2 10 24 c0ffee.jpg

Good morning Horde. Thank you for stopping by this morning. Before we get to the Prayer Revival, just a few housekeeping matters. (Rulz for those of you in Hub City)

1) This is an open thread, feel free to lurk, opine and/or bloviate away until Ms. Saturday comes along.
2) Be nice to one another.
3) Although most rules were meant to be bent, try to remember that you shouldn't run with sharp objects.
4) Have a nice weekend!


A big Thank You to Annie for compiling today's Prayer List.

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:

12/16 – Jim (in kalifornia) could still use prayers. His wife is in the hospital for a routine procedure to put in liver stents. It didn’t go well. She is on antibiotics. She is in a catch-22: she can’t get chemo until her liver is healthy enough, but the tumors are also damaging her liver. Jim had an abdominal bug and had to go to the ER, but he’s better.
12/27 Update – The doctor confirmed that his wife is going through liver failure. Her “liver” is huge and 90% composed of metastases. He has no estimate for how long she has.
1/25 Update – Jim’s wife has died. He said she went pretty peacefully; her breathing went for deep slow to shallow fast, to so shallow she was getting no air Jim was with her to the end, telling her how much he loved her and recounting the wonderful times they had in their almost 26 years of marriage.
1/27 Update – Jim thanked everyone for their prayers. They are very much appreciated. He posted that he feels her loss heavily at times, and that he has the hope and belief that he will see again some day, wrapped in glory.

12/27 – TecumsehTea requested prayers for a dear friend, Pastor Joe, who has a benign brain tumor. In the past 2 years he has dealt with a heart attack and prostate cancer, and now this. He has deep faith and trusts the Lord. His family is understandably anxious. Prayers for wisdom for the doctors, peace and comfort for his family, for continued mercy and healing for Pastor Joe.
2/8 Update – Surgery was successful on 2/8. It only took 2 hours, instead of the expected 4 hours, and his vitals are good and his brain is functioning normally.

1/6 – Our Country is Screwed asked for prayers for his daughter. At 26 years old, she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. They are still running tests and scans to determine what treatment options are available.
1/27 Update – She will be starting chemo in a couple of weeks, followed by surgery and then radiation. She has a long road ahead of her, but she is strong and has a positive attitude. He said it’s really hard being 14 hours away from her.

1/10 – GnuBreed posted that he has been mostly absent from the comments as he strove to get a liver transplant. He was not able to, due to a worn out body, and he will be entering hospice soon. His end is near. He says the transplant team made a fair judgement.
1/20 Update – GnuBreed said he is doing “the home hospice thingy” and said that it sure helps him out. Some days are mostly good, so he will keep up the fight for a while. He sends his thanks for the kind words and thoughts.

1/12 – Washington Nearsider’s last day of employment has come and gone. He plans to withdraw his TSP and retirement contributions to buy time and then evaluate whether or not to list his house. His ex-wife, learning of his change in employment, is filing to contest his sole custody of their two children, and his lawyer has explained that without a job, he is likely to lose custody. Please pray that he can find employment sufficient to keep his house and his kids before losing both.
2/3 Update -Washington Nearsider has been and remains sincerely grateful for the prayers and well-wises of the Horde. He has withdrawn his TSP and has enough money left to get through late March – early April. He will accrue debt with the custody hearings which begin 3/6. He has 3 interviews scheduled for the week of 2/5. He is also attempting to expand his custom model building services to bring in additional income by leaning on 20 years of experience building models of all kinds: building planes, tanks, ships, etc. Please contact him through the comments or email Annie’s Stew, and she can send you his direct contact information. He sends his thanks for his daily dose of sanity in an otherwise crazy world, and for the constant stream of wonderful Fani Willis euphemisms.

1/13 – Tipperdi asked for prayers. Her cousin lost his 23-year-old daughter in a car accident in mid-December. He’s having a hard time coping and Tipperdi is worried about his mental health.

1/13 – Screaming in digital requested prayers for R, a beloved family member who has pancreatic cancer. He is feeling pretty normal at this point. It was discovered while checking for something else. It doesn’t look like there are any reasonable treatment options for him, though.
1/20 Update – There was some good news for R – the latest test confirms cancer has not spread and is slow-moving. Now they are looking at treatment options.

1/26 – Pooky’s girl shared the good news that they are expecting a baby, approximately 9/21/2024! Please pray that it all goes smoothly for them and the new baby.

1/18 – CBD noted that long-time commenter, moon_over_vermont, passed away at the end of December.

1/20 – Cybersmythe asked for prayers for his sweetie’s son, who is in rehab.
2/3 Update – The son is out of rehab. They appreciate the prayers and hope for continued recovery.

1/20 – Screaming in digital is worried about Mom. She sleeps very late every day then dozes on the couch most of the afternoon. She can’t get interested in doing much, although she is still cheerful and not grumpy. She may be adjusting after the holidays and moving. They’ll contact her doctors on Monday.

1/20 – Jewells said she has spent the last 2 days recovering from the latest chemo treatment. Praise God, it has gone much better. She still had pain, but was able to manage it with oxy, but it makes her very weak.

1/20 – MKC asked for prayers for Mrs. MKC. She is having an elective procedure on Thursday and is, by her nature, prone to worrying about the usual risks.

1/20 – Blanco Basura asked for prayers. Her friend’s child OD’d on prescription meds. She leaves behind a husband and a 5-year-old daughter. She was 26. Prayers for peace and comfort for the family, and the little girl’s future would be good.

1/20 – Tonypete requested continued prayers for his wife’s church buddy Mike, who has advanced bone cancer and is in great pain constantly. He’s a hell of a guy and suffers without complaint.

1/26 – Don Black asks for your prayers for his kidney surgery.

1/27 – Emmie asked for prayers for Mr. Bassman, for his upcoming knee replacement surgery. Also, they are having patient-sitters come in when Emmie has to go out, and there’s a certain amount of anxiety related to both of them. Prayers that it all goes well would be good.
2/3 Update – Thank you for the prayers! The surgery went well and recovery is coming along nicely. His patient-sitters were a big help. The family and church friends have been a huge encouragement and a great resource.

1/27 – Tonypete asked for prayers of thanksgiving for his 14 year old granddaughter. She has expressed a strong interest in being baptized. Her parents are disinterested, so Mimi is picking up the slack here. Hopefully this step leads to many others on her journey to a positive life.

1/27 – Mindful Webworker welcomes prayers – daughter Sugar Plum Fairly miscarried this week. It was the second time in recent years. She and the wonderful son-in-law are hurt, but taking it in stride.

1/27 – RetSgtRN gave an update on her son-in-law, Kenny. His bone marrow biopsy last week showed 100% donor marrow, which means the cancer is gone. She sent a thank you for the many prayers sent his way. This is such a blessing for him, her daughter, and her two grandsons.

1/27 BrianinTn asked for prayers and support for Rich (in St. Petersburg), who is suffering from the advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, and is to the point where he can no longer work, and even has trouble standing or sitting up for any length of time. Please give your prayers and support to someone who is without a doubt the nicest guy BrianinTn has even known.

1/27 – Dash my lace wings! humbly asked for prayers for her worsening lower back pain. She got checked, and an X-ray showed her spine is all curvy – not scoliosis bad, but definitely not straight. She appreciates prayers that they can get it straightened out and pain-free in short order.

2/3 – Teresa in Fort Worth would appreciate prayers for Leigh, the director of a school for students of all ages with Down Syndrome. Leigh has been diagnosed with Soft Tissue Sarcoma. The tumor was removed this week, and they think they got all of it. Leigh would appreciate the prayers.

2/3 – Reforger asked for prayers for his Coworker, “D”, a widowed mom of 4 who is having a rough time with daughter #1. The daughter is skipping school, was caught 3 times and now police and social workers are involved. “D” is beside herself. She is having to miss work (and pay) to do probation stuff and keep appointments with “therapists”.

2/3 – Naughty Pine asked for prayers for Rachelle, a para-pro who retired from working in Detroit and has to continue working elsewhere. She discovered she was put into the wrong payscale and HR has given her the run-around, despite clear proof. She’s afraid of making waves, but Naughty Pine convinced her that does no one any good, to continue with this error. Naughty Pine would also appreciate prayers for her Arizona-bound neighbors. They have a long trip ahead, with moving van, trailers, etc. Also, please pray she gets good new neighbors.

2/3 – I’m Gumby Damn It requested prayers for an emotional hardship. He trained a two-man crew to install bath remodeling products for his little company, and they went around him and were hired by his vendor.

2/3 – Polliwog the ‘Ette would appreciate prayers for Inspector’s back pain. It’s been bad enough that he’s had to admit it’s a problem. It also keeps him from sleeping or being able to do even mild exercise, both of which are important for managing his blood pressure. They’d appreciate prayers for complete healing, but also wisdom on how to prevent future problems.

2/3 – Brother Tim is currently homeless. He spent the last 3 nights at a hotel, but he’s short on cash now. He needs a new job and a place to stay. He’s looking for another roommate situation, but they are few and far between. He is trying to make new connections, too. He’s not looking for funds, but advice and prayers are appreciated.

2/6 – 496 requested prayers for his wife and daughter as they begin a formal process of reconciliation. Please pray for warm hearts and cool heads at a minimum. He would also like prayers for his boss, “S.T.”. About a year ago his wife’s breast cancer returned. Initial treatment looked successful, but it is back now, and in her brain.

2/3 – Fenelon Spoke asked for “P”, who needs prayers for his return to faith as a Christian. Also, prayers for Pam, who needs continued healing after a pacemaker insertion, are appreciated.

2/8 – It’s me, Donna, asked for prayers after some bad lab tests. It turns out it’s not as bad as thought and easily treated. Thanks so much for the prayers.

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.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
