Prayer & Praise
You who are unchangeable, whom nothing changes! You who are unchangeable in love, precisely for our welfare, not submitting to any change: may we too will our welfare, submitting ourselves to the discipline of Your unchangeableness, so that we may in unconditional obedience find our rest and remain at rest in Your unchangeableness.
You are not like us; if we are to preserve only some degree of constancy, we must not permit ourselves too much to be moved, nor by too many things.
You on the contrary are moved, and moved in infinite love, by all things.
Even that which we humans beings call an insignificant trifle, and pass by unmoved, the need of a sparrow, even this moved You; and what we so often scarcely notice, a human sigh, this moves You, You who are unchangeable!
You who in infinite love do submit to be moved, may this our prayer also move You to add Your blessing, in order that there may be brought about such a change in us who pray as to bring us into conformity with Your unchangeable will, You who are unchangeable!
Remember in prayer
Scooter Jones- son is suicidal , not doing well
Lurkie Loo -I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed on Valentine’s day with inoperable Stage 4 glioblastoma (brain cancer). She is 44.
Captain Kevin – a childhood friend who unfriended me on FB for my conservative views. This was after referring to me and some of my friends as scum of the earth along with other names I wouldn’t repeat here. I appealed on the basis of an almost lifelong friendship and that I not only respected him for holding well-reasoned views but that we had much more in common than not. He would have none of it. I grieve over a lost friendship as well as my part in the destruction.
Captain Kevin – Strep, sinus infection, inflamed ear canal, and the pain that comes when the fibromyalgia flares up in response.

Wow what a profound prayer. He is unchangeable and moved. He works outside of a box but never changes. He might even use a book like “The Shack” to draw people to Himself. 😉
His eye is on the sparrow…..
Joel, I concur…
Today Belinda had surgery on her right knee. This is an attempt to buy her as much time as possible before they have to replace it. There was a bit more damage than the doctor anticipated once he actually got to get in and take a look. She sees him next week and then we’ll figure out the rehab.
It turned out what they thought was COPD for mom was asthma. An inhaler turned out to work magic so when we saw the pulmonologist she passed the tests quite easily. She’s still dealing with her other health issues but not needing oxygen is big. Her medication allowed her to gain 19 pounds and she’s eating much better and she’s off that med now.
Thanks for keeping these requests up and to anyone who prayed. God bless.
Good to hear the news about your mom, Erunner.
Glad to hear the good news about mom Erunner…..will keep Belinda in prayer for recovery of her knee.
praying over the list again today, Lord please have mercy
