    remember in prayer

    Bob Sweat -I don’t post here much anymore; however, I read this blog every day. I’m thankful for the many friends that I have come to know these past 11 years. Most of you I have never met face to face.
    Those who know me are aware of the struggle that I have had over the years regarding returning to pastoral ministry. Just last winter, I asked for prayer because I was being considered by a church in Washington. Shortly after requesting prayer, I removed my name from consideration because my wife and I were not ready to leave family. I asked God then to remove the desire to pastor again and help me be content with teaching at a Christian school, but desire is stronger than ever.
    In recent weeks, my wife and I, after much prayer, have agreed that I should spend whatever time I have left doing what God called me to do. We are both on Social Security, and we are asking God to open a door to a small church somewhere in the US who want a pastor to love them and faithfully teach the Word. I have recently applied to churches in Idaho and Montana. My pessimism causes me to believe there are not many places that want a pastor in his senior years, but God knows.

    Duane – Saturday night my old best friend, Jim, died of a heart attack at the age of 62 – leaving a wife and three children. I’m heartbroken. Please pray for his family.
    My wife’s best friend, Norma, is in Santa Rosa. Her house is burning as I write. Please pray for her.

    prodinov – I request prayer, still processing Ephesians 6. Young daughter got baptized recently. Little prayer warrior she is…my other little one, 5 is still is the making. However, this week, Monday after he peacefully went to bed, he was screaming upstairs, he was in a zombie state, curled up in a ball, still in a catatonic state, saying something was attacking him. He did not even acknowledge our initial prayers nor presence. Thinking nightmare, he slept with me for 3 nights. Last night, again in his bed, sound asleep, the attacks came and the wee one was unresponsive until I grabbed him, took him downstairs where he slept peacefully. I am still processing these dark attacks since they are unlike anything I have experienced. Prayers guys…it is unfair for a 5 yr old to be attacked….

    This is a really weird thing to pray about, but here goes….
    We are doing a fundraising event next weekend. I haven’t been able to get my brain to work well enough to get an email out to our regular volunteers until today so basically, I’ve given most of them only a week’s notice.

    We have 4 shifts available but only enough people signed up for one.

    We need more people so we can fulfill our promise to the folks we are working with on this event.

    I feel horrible about not being able to get my act together, but it is what it is at this point.

    It seems to be a tough month for everyone – praying for more manpower as I type, London

  4. The New Victor says:

    Thanks dusty. I’m ok (thanks for including me) I pray for God’s protection and mercy upon my children, who’ve been through a lot, including witnessing domestic violence in the other home, and that I am strong and engaged enough to lead them so they don’t turn out like the sons of Eli. Yes, I always go worst case. I thank and praise God for that which I have been given to steward, especially my lambs.

    And for Nor-Cal… horrible with little sign of stopping soon.

  5. London says:

    Thanks Em.
    Been a rough few weeks.
    Currently sitting in ER for the second night this week, with my mom who is two years out from surgery for pancreatic cancer and a week and a half out from back surgery for three fractures in her spine.
    Caretaking is hard work at times and it seems that I lose track of time pretty easily. Weeks go by while I’m trying to get something simple like a broadcast email done.

    Praying for you and you mom london. And more helpers

  7. dusty says:

    New victor, praying with you for your children.

    It sounds like London’s mom has entered that fragile stage of life – tough on both those women … joining dusty in prayer
    God keep all safe in His comfort and strength now…
