Prayer requests and praises
This week as we gather to share prayer requests and praises, I'd like to thank everyone who joined me in praying for our son; he recently took the bar exam, and now is waiting (a full month! oy.) for the results. Thank you for your prayers . . . he says that it was very difficult, but he hopes he did well. I know that the Lord blessed him with clarity of thought and a fast-moving pencil. (Grin) Now I'm praying for the examiners as they grade the appliants' essays!
Also, I had often asked for prayer for an unspoken request, and recently we've seen progress on that front. I can't share that with you, but please know that I am grateful for the prayers that you have spoken on behalf of that situation. God is good, and things are improving!
Lately I've been remembering these verses as I pray and as I thank Him for His involvement in my life. What an awesome thing to realize afresh, that the Creator of our world is interested in our tiny lives! His love is truly an amazing thing . . .
Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs
And carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead the nursing ewes. (Isaiah 40:11)
I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
