Title: Prayer Request thread
Post by: Flyin6 on February 26, 2016, 10:43:15 AM
Not sure what is the best way to go forth with this, but I wanted a single spot to go to where I could corral all the individual requests for prayer. I'm heading off to Friday night Church in 10 hours, and go 2-3 times a week. I'd like to tell others and lift up your needs.

To begin:

Sam's Wife, for healing
Miss Kay, Healing, strength from a medical condition
Our Nation for spiritual healing, and to find a Godly leader
Our Warriors everywhere for protection


I guess the best way to continue it forward is to cut and paste the list from the previous post and add yours. If your need has been answered and no more prayer is needed for it, then simply remove that person or request from the list.

Great job men!

Now, every time we read that list, precede the reading with "Father God" and pray those needs.

We can get these people prayed for several times a day!

Thanks

Don I agree! A bunch of people saying words will definitely be a help.

If I can offer a suggestion....at least for me I like to pray with a specific person in mind. So I added the original poster's name to the list for what they added. It will help me keep it straight. :) I'm open to whatever folks think.

Thanks for the prayers, I told the wife you were all pulling for her & she very much appreciated it! Tonya went to her first post surgery appointment. Took X-rays, no infection, swelling is minimal & all the bones are aligned in the Dr's words "perfectly". I would say she is out of the woods & a full recovery is expected. Thank you & take her off the "official" list.

Jerry, Duane's family friend (Read: Like Grand Pa) who was 72 was playing football with some 30 year olds.

72 playing football...get that part?

Goes out for a pass, jumps to catch it and lands wrong. The fall actually split his skull...brain swelling...he never woke up. They kept him on life support so his son could say good bye...He's gone.

Prayers for his family.

BTW, Duane tells me they actually transplanted his organs! They were good enough to do so!

As we approach that day and hour, keep us advised

Men of RM. Let's all take a knee and get quiet with our Father just before this procedure and lift Matt's brother up. All over the nation, maybe all over the world, wherever RM has reached. Let's all pray together that day.

Gotta be tough for him!

I'm going to add an annomonous name to the list.

Last night I participated in something I don't think many people on earth have ever witnessed. A pastor called me and asked for some help. He has a speciality...
He is sought out worldwide for his particuliar abilities. I have known him for years

He casts out Demons! Yep, I said it.

If I ever had any doubt something like that existed, all doubt is completely extinguished after what I saw into the wee hours of this morning while holding this person/thing down. The pastor brought out one after another.

I know this sounds crazy, but I'm telling you as sure as I'm breathing, it is no lie.

Anyway, we are not done. There are more inside this tormented soul. I ask for prayer for this man. After all the vile awful stuff, and the puking, and more terrible stuff, he was left with a partial vacuum. These things had lived in him for a very long time. He now has a space where they once lived...

I'm not crazy...

Raising boys into RealMen!!
He was late 50's!
He had generational curses (Demons) in him. One said he had been there 42 generations! Another over 2,000 years!

I have been studying this demonic possession in Christians since Thursday night...Amazing stuff
I have biblically answered many questions I had, like can a demon live inside a Christian
People have said can darkness exist alongside light? That is offered up as like a biblical scripture
However
There is no such scripture!
Can a dark house have a room in it that is brightly lit?
Think about it
People are flesh soul and spirit
When one accepts Jesus he comes into and takes possession of the spirit person.
The strength of the spirit (Faith) will or may not influence the soul and body. If it is a strong faith, being fed regularly by the word of God and prayer, then it will in time purify the soul and clean up the body.
But if the demonic possession is fed, then the spirit gasps for air and remains barely alive and the soul remains lustful, angry, unsatisfied, hateful, unforgiving and so forth. That brings all manner of bad things upon the body.
I think that is why the bible talks about the godly person having a long life span. It's logical. If the spirit which is good is thriving, then it makes well everything around it. If you eat junk food, however, then the spirit does what it can, and remember the spirit is not of this physical world...So if you eat junk you grow weak and sick and eventually succumb.

I would ask for your prayers for His guidance I my life right now. I'm presented with an opportunity to take a regional Vice President role in the southeast. I could choose to live anywhere in AR, LA, TN, GA, FL, NC, SC, MS, AL. I'm struggling with leaving Texas and uprooting the kids. It's not a lot of extra money, mainly stock options.  I've been told if I stay here I have an Executive Director role in the next year or two. Getting out of the big city is sounding good right now but I'm praying for guidance.

Our sitter ( wonderful lady bless her heart) called today and told us that she won't be able to tend our twins after August is over.   
Need to find a loving sitter for my boys.
Find a new location to live that has a higher quality of neighbors who I would trust with my kids
Or sitters plans to fall through.
Or the second best option is a family friend actually gets approved for 100% medical and she would watch my boys
Lord help and guild me and those around me to find us all a working solution

Prayers requested for my grand daughter, Jo-Jo. She's the one I built the chair for.

We got a bad report from the doctor today. Her leg is not healing properly. They said it is worse now than at the time of the break.

They are putting her under and recasting in the next day or so. They will give her leg a bit less than a week to see if there is any improvement. If not, then she must have surgery, and have the half body cast on for up to 8 weeks starting after the surgery.

We are all feeling it, but mom is really stressed. It is going to be a doubling down by all this summer to support them through this...

Absolutely!

And Men, today some time and every day for a week, let's pray for safety of our LEO's out there. Times are not good for them. I wish I could help, but we have a problem with this new America.

Father God,
Thank you for all we have in this country which you have made. Watch over the men in uniform who work tirelessly to protect us from crime and danger and accidents and hundreds of things we know nothing about on our streets and neighborhoods. Our Law Enforcement Officers are under pressure from evil everywhere. They are brave, they care, and oftentimes they are not appreciated. You know them as your soldiers, and your caretakers, and even people who witness to those needing it most. Police and law enforcement are a special breed that you have created to be the sheepdogs of our nation. Allow no danger to find success against them. Comfort them. Let them know that millions of your people love them and are very concerned for them. Bring them home at night and I pray a line of the blood of Jesus our king between them and the evil of the spiritual world that seeks to harm them. In the holy name of Jesus I ask, Amen

I will report on my previous, we had our day care really nice neighbor lady give us a month notice and she was going to stop watching my boys, bringing me back to stay at home mode unless we found a suitable sitter.  A long term,   While we had neighbors who would watch them for a week or another for a month we didn't have a long term solution. we can't really keep our heads much above water with out me working.  Last night a much needed answered prayer came in at two am to my wife.  Woke out of a deep sleep and decided to get ready for the day.  She noticed how early she was and jumped on social media to find a post from a local ( wife went to school with her) that has a few openings in her kid schedule and was looking to fill them.  2:00am fellas.  God speaks to us in many forms. We just need to be in tune and willing to follow.    God bless you guys for being God fearing men!

Would like to add my step dad to the list Roy B. his cancer has spread from his liver to his back, lungs & then metastasized to his bones. The VA has given him months, he was an MP & served in Vietnam. As with most fighters he's choosing to fight & is currently just now speaking with cancer treatments of America.

Thanks Tate, I will pass it along. He is currently managing his pain, although the path he has chosen (chemo) is not an easy one. A lot of people choose to not fight it & enjoy the remaining time they have. To me that would be a tough choice.

Also note, he is & has been Decon at his church for years along with treasurer. He is saved, no doubt in my mind.

Good news, Matt

Shawn, I would encourage your step dad to consider a trip to MD Anderson.  I deal with the healthcare delivery system daily from a fact based statistical analysis perspective and CTCA preys on people by sometimes giving them false hope and their capabilities are not best in class.

In any event, prayers for you and your family for the best outcome.

TRN, thank you. I just passed along the info.

A small update, my wife & I just got off the phone with them. They are headed to Chicago next Tues to see CTCA. His current blood count is around 80 & as such everyone is telling them they need to get him healthier before they can treat him, even CTCA. So with that stated I also informed him of all of you Godly men having his back in prayer & thanking him for his service. He was very appreciative. Thank you all.

True MRSA is a beast Dave. If you or your family are around him much use sterile practices if you can. You can bring it to your home on clothes or hands and it will lay in wait for you to have a small cut or some other means of gaining access. Good news is that they've gotten better at treating it.

Another praise report for my brother.  I am visiting this weekend and he is able to get out and around with his Walker dragging along until he gets tired.  Hid stamina is not up yet and he gets frustrated but he is doing well.  He admits that he has bad days but he is still motivated. Please continue to lift him up.

Please add Tony (Rosco) Reitdorf to your prayers. He was standing in the back of a golf cart & his wife turned sharp. He lost balance & fell out with severe head trauma. He's currently in ICU, they removed part of his skull (right side of his head) he is stable & they are hopeful but this could go either way. Tony & his wife Michelle also have a son a little over a year old. I sponsored their off road race team for years (Tate you may know them as Team 302). Thank you

Rosco is now responding to stimulation i.e. body is shivering when cold. His pupils are still dialated but they may be last to respond, next 60 hours is crucial.

Update on my stepdad Roy, he ended up staying in Chicago for a week and a half. He has started chemo. His health prior to the cancer was not good & is very susceptible to other infections etc.
Title: Re: Prayer Request thread

-Rosco-
So I'm venting a little here or just writing because I'm pretty tore up. I'll post what I just read below in a minute. Apparently the Dr's removed part of his skull to ease swelling and that is currently residing in his abdomen for safe keeping.

Rosco, this accident and his struggle are affecting many. I honestly did not realize how many people he knew and lives he has touched. I'm not sure I can say I know many who have as much energy as he did on a daily basis. The guy was literally a walking ADD spokes child in a good guy way. Always doing crazy stuff and playing pranks etc. Drove a race car like no one's business, thus the reason we were always on board with him and his wife. My wife and I are trying to grasp why this is happening and praying a lot. I can't say we were close to them currently but we have history and this is definitely hitting home for her and I. He has a young boy and they are a solid family. Anyhow below is what his Mother wrote and thought I would share. If you have a minute and could please lift them up they are in a hospital near Lincoln NB as they were on vacation when this happened. Thank you


"I don't even know where or how to begin. I guess that's partly why I have not given an update recently. It is so difficult to understand the complicity of the brain, the body, the meds and the machines working for tony right now and even more difficult to try to explain what's going on. The doctors and nurses here are awesome. They would love to give us hope, but at this point that's becoming more difficult to do. Based on what we are seeing medically with scans and neuro exams, Tony's pupils remain fixed & non responsive...they said normally they will see pupils respond by now. .. doctors don't give alot of hope although they do say there's always the unknown, everyone reacts differently to meds etc. but as it stands right now our son needs a restorative miracle. I could go on & on trying to explain what doctors have explained to us, but I think you get the picture. It's hard to stay positive and have faith when there isn't much positive to look at. But I know my son, he's always been full of life, does everything in a big way and he doesn't give up on anything easily. More than that I know his creator and I'm choosing to believe that God still has a plan for Tonys life. I don't believe God is done with him yet! I prayed over Tony most of the night last night, read the word of God to him, speaking life into him and pleaded with him keep fighting, begging the Lord to give him back to us whole and healed. I pray Tony will come thru this & tell me how I drove him crazy with all this talking that he had no choice fighting thru it just to shut his mom up! It really is hard to keep the faith, but if it were easy it wouldn't be faith. A little story, yesterday we noticed Tony's right hand had alot of dried blood on it..looking at it his little finger appeared to be all scuffed up...upon further inspection it looked like his little finger had actually been sliced posibly pretty deep. We told the nurse about it and they said they would check it out. So they cleaned his hand up and there are no marks or injuries at all to that hand! My immediate thoughts were "things are not always as they appear...don't give up hope". So please agree in prayer with us for a total miracle for Tony...our God can do anything! Thank you all for the love and support...this is just so overwhelming and I thank God for each of you. Now go hug your child and tell them how much you love them!!!"

Rosco needs a miracle, he's not doing well.

His Mom posted this a couple of hours ago...

URGENT specific prayers needed....blood pressure 234/80....very high...cranial pressure is hanging at mid 60's. these numbers are at max pain meds and going back on sedation. he spikes higher than this when messed with. as I was typing this the neurosurgeon came in and told us his pressure is climbing like crazy and he's maxed on all that medicine and doctors can do. They expect brain death later today. They did say they don't believe he is feeling pain and is totally unaware. we are all devestated and have shock upon what was already shock. PLEASE PRAY foe us all.

A mutual friend Matt Rowland sent me this about an hour ago which he received from Rosco's sister

The prognosis has not changed since he got here. Each day has been little to no change with numbers gradually getting worse. His bp is 236/85 and his icp is at 72. He is fighting all he can and we never once gave up hope and faith but doctors do suspect it will reach completely thru his brain stem sometime within the next 24 hours, causing brain death. We are currently spending precious precious time with him. Nothing can prepare you for this. When I was holding his hand I told him that it's OK. That it sucks for us, but we all know he will be in a better place and he squeezed my hand. Something about that brought comfort to me. I love my brother so much.

Lord, we need a miracle for Rosco.

Rosco passed last night

From his Mother

I never in a million years dreamed I would be posting this. but our Tony met his Lord tonight at 7:41 pm. I don't understand any of this but I know he is with the Lord and nothing can touch his children without passing thru HIS hands first. we prayed with thousands of you believing for a miracle but our creator who created Tony had other plans. we dedicated tony to the Lord when he was a baby understanding that tony was a gift from the Lord. we committed him to the Lord and now we have to trust in his decisions. we're just not suppose to bury our children! and what about his wife and baby tyler? it makes no sense, but I've learned that when life doesn't make sense we just stand in the Lord and hold tight onto our faith. as much as this hurts...more pain than I've ever experienced I know that in faith we will survive & learn to live again. I just thank God for answering our prayers 36 years ago in the blessing of s little guy we named tony and trusting us to be his parents. we already miss you but we'll see you again tony, we love you more than you could ever imagine. thank you all for your prayers. Pray for strength and peace for each of us.

From his wife Michelle

I feel as if God himself has given me these words to express to everyone: Tony "Rosco" Reitdorf was a living angel that was sent here as a gift from God to all who he met, and even beyond. The proof is easy to see- the contagious positive attitude, the inspiring drive for life, the infallible work ethic, THE LAUGH, and the love. Tony may have gone home to the Lord, but his spirit will live on in all of us, as a gift that we are now realizing God has given us. So that is our charge, responsible for this gift, to go out and show Tony's spirit to the world, to work as hard as he worked, to hold our heads high with a contagiously positive attitude, to live life to its fullest, to LAUGH without restraint, and to love fiercely the people who mean the world to us. Tony has left us clear instructions, his work is done here, and now our's starts.



Rest in Peace Rosco

Shawn-

thanks for adding Rosco and his family/story to this thread.  It is always good for us to come together seeking God and his providence; often we are reminded that we are not in control, nor do we know the overall plan.  For all we know (knowledge) as a human race, we don't even begin to comprehend the complexity of the Universe that God created and actively controls.

Rosco's legacy, life and the impact of it will spread and grow as God has plan it to......be patient and prepare to be amazed at His plan.

My God extend his peace and comfort to you as well Shawn-

Lord God Heavenly Father, we as simple people do not understand your plan, but we know and trust that yours is unquestionably better than anything we could come up with. It is sad day when someone who has had such a great impact in your name on the people around him is called home. Although I do not know him I know he is at peace and I thank you for that. I would like to ask that your peace be laid upon his family who are probably struggling with understanding your plan. Please give them comfort that this is the way it has always been planned from the very beginning of time. Please give them peace when they may blame themselves for the accident and allow the Holy Spirit to be upon them through this terrible time of struggle and loss. Lord, thank you for the time Tony was present and had the opportunity to influence the many folks that he did. In your most holy and precious name we pray, Amen.


stlaser, I did not know him but I found your post shortly after you sent it out. I am sorry for your loss, but glad to know that God gave a good man the time he needed to influence the many that it seems he did.

Dr visit today

His take is that the shoulder is going to heal up fine, probably not a torn rotator cup.

Looking at the foot, he said I had a nice clean break and it appears to be healing just fine. No cast, just this giant mega boot thing. He said stay on crutches, but I can put weight on it as tolerated!

It's ugly though! Looks like that thing on the end of JR's leg we all saw.

Good news is I can now move around better with this boot thing and I'll ease back into operations commencing immediately!

Update on my step dad, his cancer has spread to several areas of his body. The worst being two spots on his brain. He has lost the use of his legs as he has a mass on his spine. This cancer has been very agressive. They started him on morphine IV today & are looking to transfer him to hospice currently. All treatment has been stopped, he was on radiation for last couple weeks. Thanks for all your prayers.

If you could all keep my oldest Baylee in your prayers. She has an MRI scheduled next week to rule out a meniscus tear on her knee. She plays basketball (starting point guard on her freshman team) & is currently sidelined. Pretty bummed as this is her life year around & wanting to play college ball as her goal. Definitely a small issue in the big picture but for a 14 year old it's been hard on her. Thanks

Thanks Tate, on the other my step dad passed 4 days before election (he still was re-elected btw). So I'm back in Hoosier country this week helping Mom sort thru lots of different things with the business and farm.

Ashley's oldest who made a full recovery had a firework blow up right in front of her, testament to prayer right there.

Just got a call from Duane's wife
He is in the back of an ambulance enroute to the hospital
He threw out his back... Can't move, extreme pain...
History: he works out every day. His back was bothering him so instead of taking it easy he starts core stuff...well that was the incorrect choice
Now there is more to why this is not a good thing for him, but I'll save it for later

For now let's all just say a heartfelt prayer for him

Prayers worked!

Today he went in for his first visit. After the initial Dr exam, they carted him off to the MRI. Then they red the MRI on the spot. (This place has it goin' on!) the diagnosis was that he has numerous micro tears in a couple of discs. So they then gave him some steroid injections into the actual site of the tears.

He is back home, in bed...Planning some cross country skiing expedition in Wyoming after Christmas.

Like I've always said, You just can't find a Black Hawk pilot with any sense!

Guys:

Thanks for the out-pouring of support and prayers.  I am both humbled and appreciative.

Fortunately, I am on the mend.  The doc said it would be two to three days until the epidural / steroids injected on Friday started showing effect and I think it is starting to kick in.  This is the first time I have been able to sit at a computer since the injury.  Up to now, even rolling over in bed has been a painful and slow task.       

This experience is certainly giving me an opportunity to appreciate family and friends. Even the millennial daughters are stepping up to help out while mom assumes hospital shuttle and travel hockey duty.

Thanks again.

Update:

I'm at work, (was yesterday too), but this time I don't need to be doped up. Thanks all and to Him, the intense pain has subsided for now. it has either broken up or at the very least dislodged to a place where there's not so much blockage. The inflammation can cause intestinal issues, (read between the lines here), so I hope that's what's going on now, but it could be infection from damage. Going to be keeping an eye on it for the next couple days, so fingers crossed gentlemen. Thank you again.

We shall find out. I've got an appointment with a specialist on the 27th, so please pray for me that we get answers. The last time I saw a specialist on the issue I was told, "man that sucks, good luck" because they had no diagnosis, or reason for the stone formation but historically people with my lab results continue to make stones forever... not good. I did pass some pieces on sunday which was both painful and relieving at the same time, but I can still feel the disturbance in the force, if you will. The last time I got a CT scan, I had 16 in the passenger side and 11 on the driver's side. I usually pass a dozen or so per year but they are usually pretty small and not so painful, but I'd like to get an actual diagnosis of condition and treatment plan. that is the goal, well, besides not peeing out little razor blades anymore.

really clean. pretty lean meat, lots of fruits and veg, low carb, low processed. I went on an alkaline, low oxalate diet for 3 months under Dr orders and at the end my labs came back within 0.001+- of the original numbers. it's just where my metabolism wants to be. they think it has to do with all the heavy asthma meds I took from 4-15yrs old. no one else in my family has any issues like this. also about 100oz of water a day plus other liquids so this just shouldn't be happening is what they tell me.

Tate, both myself and my next youngest brother have cronic stones, and his are worse. he's been to several specialists...it was "too much soda, blahblah".
The one item that has made the most difference was dairy. We both crave cheese, but since he's cut back on all dairy, the stones are less frequent and also not as large. I haven't changed a thing, and waiting for the next BIG one.

Thanks for asking Dave. I'm hanging in there. several "pieces" have passed since the onset of this whole thing, which is a good sign of kidney function but I'm still off and on pain meds and experiencing hives that indicate some kidney function issues so it's kinda contradicting. I do have my specialist appointment Monday, so hoping for a diagnosis and direction.

Hate to hear you're having issues, Tate. I've got a buddy who was so blocked up he couldn't pass anything (solids included due to the fact you can't apparently do one without the other) for almost 30 days. Docs just told him to continue to try to pass the stones (army docs), which made him want to violate the Commandment "thou shalt not kill". I've been lucky enough to only ever have to pass one, and I'm pretty sure that was due to all the mineral water we drank in Iraq my first tour (only water available). As soon as I stopped drinking that and raided the DFAC of appropriate amounts of Gatorade, I had no issues. I sincerely hope the docs are able to get you taken care of! Praying for good results!

Gentlemen,

I've got a real close friend who is in one of those life slumps and always feels things are going wrong for him. I have talked to him about our savior and His power to better our lives but at this point he is still lost.

Please pray for this man, Ant, that he may come to know God, and accept Jesus as his savior. His wife knows Jesus but he does not. As we are all aware Jesus is the way the truth and the light, and this is exactly the strength he needs right now.

Folks, please pray with me again, my wife informed me of an individual in her company who has lost his baby daughter, and the mother recently committed suicide. Let's call this man T and please pray for him that he is given the support from surrounding coworkers he lives with, and for Him to come to know that God is his strength to get through this.

Thank you gentleman for trusting in God's provisions and knowing He answers our prayers.

Oh wow how awful. I could not imagine what hes going through. Sending prayers.

I have a good friend In the hospital. He lost one leg to diabetes last fall and is scheduled to have the other removed Friday. Infection spread from the bad one to whats left of the good one. He was admitted earlier today. Everyone including me got on to him about taking care of himself better before any of this happened.  But, he was too busy caring for his elderly mother to worry about himself. We sent her to the Lord late last summer. That was a big stress reliever for him but it was too late to save him self from multiple surgeries. He's one of the most stubborn yet kind harted men you would ever meet.

Guys on a much less serious note....

Pray for me and my family that we may make the right decision.

I'm being presented with an opportunity to take a CEO role in Nashville.  Uprooting the family is a tough thing when the girls are in middle school and one has had some issues with depression and thoughts of harming herself.

My family is here, hers is in Memphis.  Its a great opportunity and long term the money would be awesome due to the equity.  In know there is more to life than money but all the things seem to point in the right direction.

Thanks

Title: Re: Prayer Request thread
Post by: Wilbur on March 03, 2017, 08:31:30 AM
TRN I wish you the best with your decision, I know there are lots of factors that enter into it. I am convinced that things happen for a reason and while we don't always know the reasons (or that it some times takes months or even years to find out the reasons), we have to go slow and let our "little voice" guide us. That "little voice" involves faith obviously but other things as well, listening to your wife, to your kids, to others in the industry and others at the company (and some times those things you "listen to" may tell you it would be a bad decision, which is very important to listen to as well). So often when you make the list of good and bad (the old Ben Franklin balance sheet) about a decision, the "good" is often solely financial, while the "bad" are all the disruptions to the lives of those around us. Now it doesn't sound like that will completely be the case for you as your wife has family near there (if I read that correctly?), but hopefully my point makes sense. Have you asked your kids what they think? Maybe ask them to come up with their own "Ben Franklin balance sheets" for how the decision would impact them. You might be surprised at what comes out of it. And no matter what you decide (go no go) you will have tought them another lesson in being thoughtful and making decisions on facts rather than emotion. I sincerely wish you the best of luck. I know it's not an easy decision to make. And I will pray that you make the right decision for you and your family. I know you will.

Praying over all these needs this morning

Emphasize, YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR WILL BE DONE

Just do it and rest in your faith

Do it...
Title: Re: Prayer Request thread
Post by: Flyin6 on March 03, 2017, 10:15:52 AM
...And if you are saved

Claim what is yours. That is authority over sickness and disease, over hungar, over lust over addictions that YOU have the authority to break those chains! YOU DO SOLDIER! Hear me. Jesus died and gave all that to the church. We are the church. He is the head we are the body (church). Show me a head that functions that functions without a body...Well, other than in Commiefornia ;-)
Seriously show me a body that moves about without its head. Show me, and if you can't then learn from that
Takes both parts. It takes Jesus advocating in heaven at the right side of the Father and it takes us putting our left in front of our right. It takes US and a physical effort to put down the bottle, set aside the pills, turn off the porn and stop cursing. It takes us to stop an affair or walk up to a long held hatred for someone and stick your hand out.

Take authority over the defeated foe. You have authority over Satan and all his dominion. You do, so being a man of God take authority. For the big decisions like the one our cowboy red neck friend faces, ask for wisdom, and get real quiet while reading the word or seeking God. Listen. Listen to spirit filled men and see what comes of it. Claim victory and rebuke foul spirits and evil, simply set it aside, you are above those. Evoking your authority and standing in faith, claim victory over that sore knee just like I just did 30 minutes ago and give it no more thought.

As a functional note, you don't have to keep asking, God's hearing is fine. But what you do need to do is repent, ask forgiveness, get right with your God and humbly approach him with prayer. Then make your request known. Know that the prayer for a new car is so useless as to be about as effective as Jesse Jackson with healing racial divide. Those prayers which serve kingdom building will be answered. Not necessarily in the manner you want..."Father God Please make me CEO of this company and give me a big raise"actually may come back as "Ya know dad, I love you and what you are doing here, I'm glad you stayed here where you have more time to share with me."

I don't know, I'm no Oracle, I just trust. I don't think God is a liar, and to me that makes his word true. So he either is truthful and will execute on his word or he's lying and I'm pretty certain surrendering to the fact that Jesus is real puts you in the first camp.

So men, don't ask as much as you did. Ask of some things, "Lord send me the wife you have created for me." But on things that you have authority over, learn to give orders. "Satan, you have no authority over my daughter. I command the spirit of defiance and of self doubt to flee, in the name of Jesus, and I command and pray a line of the blood of Christ Jesus around this child. No harm shall come to her in the name of Jesus."

Stand up and learn what our NCO's in the Army already know. They have authority, they use it. They give an order and it is followed. They waste no more time on it and move on to the next task. Well most of them do...Guys like Bobby and Nate stand around and argue some, but for the most part they git er dun!

So you do the same

Move out, CM...

Praise report: although I continue to have multiple stones in each kidney, I have no serious blockage or kidney damage, and I gave birth to this little fella this morning. 4.7mm per my dial caliper here at work. There is no greater feeling of relief and satisfaction than getting rid of something you didn't even know was causing pain. The lack of pain is like waking up after your best day at work, home, winning the lottery, best cup of coffee ever, kid won a scholarship and you got a raise at work. the image is not for the faint of heart.

My youngest is going in for a basic surgery Friday morning. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170322/e3a696598830685567b9ca206d87b094.jpg) going to have his tonsils and adenoids removed, the boys is strong and I am sure he will do fine.

New Prayer Request:

Robert Blout...My wife's Uncle (That makes him my uncle as well, right?)

He's in the hospital...Enlarged prostrate, can't urinate...has gout...got a kidney problem which is getting better

Get this: He is 97!

More...

He was an actual Army Ranger from WW2!!!!!!!!!!

Well, mostly...The Rangers were seeking volunteers from amongst the troops at the time. He, a qualified infantryman, volunteered and was sent to Ranger training in England. He earned the patch, graduating from the course, but then asked to be sent back to his original infantry unit to fight with the friends he had enlisted with from Cincinnati, his and their home. His request was granted and he instantly became the most highly qualified grunt in his company, where over time he rose in rank. I believe he finished as a master Sergeant, with multiple decorations.

Hit the beach on D-Day and fought until the very end of the war as a grunt. Steely eyed killer, that one, but never, never talks about it. He was doing push-ups every day right up to this year. Lives and has lived in a small mobile home his whole life. Never took, nor asked for much. He is a real deal man from our greatest generation.

Please lift him up for healing and mending and in the name of Jesus, we bind up the spirit of sickness and suffering. They shall have no dominion over this warrior.

I want to stand beside a 100 year old combat Ranger in a few years!

She came through surgery great, but they kept her overnight.

Got her around 1530 today, she was waiting in the chair as I drove up and hopped right in! She can't tell yet but I thought she was doing a little better. Then she went to Costco on her own to get samples (that is a weekly outing for her)

Update, this started yesterday.

Mom was due to have her checkup for the pace maker. Well, she ended up in the ER first thing in the AM for shortness of breath, ending up having a mild pneumonia.

Blood tests came back messed up so transferred to another hospital for more tests. During the test an artery tears with stints and BP goes under 60. She may have had a mild stroke, but seems OK now asking for them to call me and wanted a puzzle book. Dr said it as touch and go for a few minutes.

She is now in ICU and I am off to see her.

Prayers requested for my cousins son.

He is 16 and has been battling muscular dystrophy. He has been confined to a wheelchair for about 5 years now. Yesterday he was on his way to the doctors office to get some help with this flu like bug going around. My cousin thought he had fallen asleep in his chair on the car ride. Turns out he was unconscious and not breathing. They started compressions and were able to get his heart going but not able to breathe on his own. He was taken via ambulance to the nearest hospital where he was then taken by life flight to Texas children's hospital.

Upon arriving he went into cardiac arrest where they again gave compressions and were able to stabilize his heart.... about 1am his heart stopped again. They were able to establish a normal rhythm, but as of last I heard he was still unconscious and unable to breathe on his own. At this time they are unsure as to whether or not there has been any brain damage or not. They have not been able to keep his heart stable long enough to do a brain scan.

It is in God's hands and I know that regardless of the outcome it is all part of his plan. I pray that He bring comfort to the parents, grandparents, and siblings in this difficult time. I pray that He ease any pain or suffering Caleb may be feeling. I pray His will be done.

I'm sorry to hear this. Did Caleb know our Lord? Is he dancing with him this very moment :-) ?

I somehow think that he did,

Amidst the sorrow, try and not focus on our loss, but instead on his gain!

Glory! Glory!

Don, I would like to believe he knew our Lord and is now getting to know Him better than we here on earth can. He was raised on The Word for sure, and his parents provided him all the "tools" to have a strong walk with God.

Being around him I always felt inspired. Even with through his struggles with MD he never showed weakness mentally or spiritually. Seeing him reminded me that no matter the problems I was facing I could overcome them as long as I accept that God has the master plan, as he had. I thank God for the years that he blessed our lives with Caleb, and for the lessons that God taught me through him.


Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. They are much appreciated. God Bless.

Chevsilver I am sorry for Caleb's passing. I always struggle with things like this wondering how I was so blessed when people such as Caleb and his family had such a difficult road. I take solace that the plan will be revealed to me someday and I will understand. My prayers and blessings for you all as you mourn his passing. He is in a better place.

JR continued prayers for your mom. Stay strong.

Been lifting all up- hope to hear updates as available.

I need to add our good friend Jane H. In Arizona to the list.  Diagnosed with stage 4 Kidney Cancer and has choosen to forego treatment.  She and her husband Gil are HUGE Cubs fans, so hopefully she'll get to see them in the Series this fall; She has been given 6-8 months without treatment.

Asking for strength for them both and freedom from pain for her-

Update on Jane:

She lost her battle this morning around 3:15am Arizona time.  Prayers for her husband Gil who's been her steadfast husband and caregiver through it all!  Jane & Gil sold me my second competition Brittany and adopted me and my family with that deal!  More like family than friends; the most accepting, supportive and caring people I know.  Ice cold Budweiser long-necks were something we relished and shared together, and there's not been a time since we met, that I don't think of Jane when I see or consume one and think of all the good times, laughs and giggles we shared together.  Harry Carry's voice saying the phrase "enjoy an ice cold Budweiser" bounced around in my head often when we were doing so...... :beercheers:

Jane got to see her beloved Cubs finally win a World Series - loved that team and ballpark so much that they named one of their most competitive Brittanys "Wrigley" who sired the pup they sold me that started our relationship.  When Wrigley passed, a mutual friend got us on the field during warm-ups - this was the season they'd reach the play-offs directly after the "Bartman" incident.  I snuck some of his ashes past security and sprinkled them behind home plate to "chase the goat" which Jane got such a giggle out of.  Took awhile, but got the job done, and she was thrilled and lucid to see them win the Series and all the fan fare.  I wonder if she "held out" just to witness the ring ceremony Wednesday?

She's with the Lord, this I know- God's Speed until we see you again Jane!

Glad to hear Mike!

So I got one to add.
My buddy Tony is going in for a kidney transplant on he 20th.
He's been fighting the losing battle for quite a few years now.
He's good, has a living donor, his soon to be mother in law so it has been planned.
He was hoping to make summer but his kidney function hit 8% a couple months ago and the transplant was moved ahead.
He knows our Lord, and I know he can use any help we can give him.
So if you fine men can add him to your prayers.

My wife has had some struggles with depression and anxiety in the past.  The first time was about 7 or 8 years ago.  With the help of some counseling she was able to get over it for the most part.  Then about 3 years ago the anxiety came back.  At the time I was having some fairly major health issues which resulted in a few weeks in the hospital and a couple months of recovery time.  It was just all to much for her.  Again she was able to talk to somebody and had been doing really well for the last couple of years.

Recently she has been having a lot of anxiety again.  I don't think it is truly post-partum depression but it is focused around some of the struggles with caring for out little girl.  She has sought out some counseling again but she doesn't feel that the person she is talking to is the right person though so she is trying to find somebody else.  She is putting herself through a lot between the anxiety she feels when my daughter is being difficult to the extreme guilt she feels afterwards.  On days where she is feeling overly stressed/ anxious she will send me a note asking for me to pray for her that day.  If you all might join in it would be appreciated.

You can fix this yourself!

Anxiety and depression are spirits

You control spirits through the authority God gave us through Jesus.

Go get this book and read it quick:

https://www.christianbook.com/the-believers-authority-kenneth-hagin/9780892764068/pd/64061?dv=%7Bdevice%7D&en=google&event=SHOP&kw=christian-living-0-20%7C64061&p=1179710&gclid=CKG3l-OEsdMCFciKswodcSoBLA

Once you get what it says, simply apply the authority you already have over your wife AND BELIEVE IT!

Do that and her problem will be gone

Psa 94:19 When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.
Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Anxiety is a lack of faith and or a doubt of certainty in one's position with the Lord and is a sin.  A sin which we all commit at some time or another.  A demon spirit cannot possess a child of God.  Lead your family through strength and through the authority given you in the word.  Prayers sent.

A friend of mine is just turned 40 and was diagnosed with COPD. He lived pretty hard. Drinking and smoking heavily. He had several minor heart attacks in his 20s and figured he would drop dead any day.  So he just partied all through his 30s. Now he's with a good woman with plans to get married. He's reconnected with his daughter in her early teens. I pray this is finally enough to turn him around. His family has lots of health issues but I believe this is probably self inflicted.
Got more bad news about my wifes aunt. The one in Ohio that we had to go clean out her house last month. She has Brest cancer. Don't have all the details but chemo is not an option. They are going to try some new thing.

So, here's my prayer for her:

Sovereign father, Jehovah Gyria, I petition thee to place knowledge on this afflicted woman and her family. Show them, Father God that they have authority over infirmity bought by the sacrifice and covered by the blood of our savior. We love you Lord and thank you for loving us. We acknowledge and thank you that you gave us such tools to actually minister to ourselves and over those we take authority over as it was set to be in the heavenly realms. Show her and her husband and other family members that sickness is a conquered foe, that we can control such things, although seeming to be miraculous, really just a part of your wonderful plan for us. As the head in heaven rules over the body here in earthly places, the body has hands and feet and fingers and a mouth to do that which the head has given authority to do. Father in the name of Jesus, give this revelation to these people, in the name of precious Jesus I ask it, amen.

Heavenly Father, I lift up Bear's wife and entire family to you.  Please provide her Your peace and comfort.  Lead this family to the right person that You have ordained to help them.

Father, I lift up Jon's friend with health issues.  Please place people in his path to minister to him by example and lead him to a knowledge of You.  Also, Lord, please provide comfort for his aunt with cancer.  We don't know your plan Lord, but submit, knowing that You will reveal it in Your time.

Father, I lift up Dave and his recovery to you. 

Father, we don't always understand what we are going through or why but You know.  Father, You have already given us everything we need in the Holy Spirit.  Give us the faith to realize that and empower Him in our lives.  Please make it plan to us the people that we should be ministering to as we go through issues in our lives because someone is watching us, looking for you.  Thank you for your Grace.

You are enough.  Amen

Bear I will absolutely say some words for her. Let me also add (which she may well know) that lots of therapists aren't worth jack ****. If she's not getting good results she needs to find another one pronto. A bad one who isn't helping can exacerbate the bad as she may say to herself "she can't be fixed or helped" and that's an awful burden added to the other stuff she's struggling with. IMO she needs to keep looking until she finds one that is good. Also there are some good mess for anxiety that can be a help for her in the interim period. Some are SSRI's and some aren't so it's worth looking there as well. Not that it fixes the underlying concerns but it might help her be open to other healing. I look at it like pain mess allowing the body to relax enough to heal from an injury. Good luck. Prayers definitely sent your way.

Two to add to the list:

Found out my son in Oregon was fired from his job for causing an accident (driving tow truck) and on top of that, his landlord has been collecting rent, but not paying property taxes, so Sheriff's sale is eminent and he and his roomate need to move ASAP with dog and all their toys.  So out of work, about to be out on the street and other issues are deepening his psychological issues enough to worry his sister and I.

Basically she has a 90% blockage on the right artery up to the carodid. 95% oxy saturation. When they cleared the left side and she had the stroke.

She (and I) is getting tired of it all and we looking at options. She is at a fix it or end it mind set and DNR has come up.

Just hoping for the best guys with what we have been dealt.

They are comforted that she is not suffering and is finally at peace, but anything extra you could say for them is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Good news from my uncle.  No head trauma or internal injuries.  During surgery they found that he only popped his knee out of the joint.  They put it back in place and I believe installed some hardware to keep it there while the ACL and MCL heal.  He has 2 broken ribs (1 on each side).  They need to do some more x-rays/ mri on his ankle, shoulder and elbow.  A few sutures above an eye and in his check I think.  He is my Dad's youngest sibling, so he isn't that old just yet and should be able to recover.  He was awake, alert and joking around with my cousins this morning already.  Once they get his ankle xray and figure out what is going on with it they will be starting therapy already.

Nobody is really certain exactly what happened, but all things considered he got of pretty lucky.  Could have been much worse.

Guys, we lost a soldier on my Army National Guard unit. SGT Thomas died on this past Monday, 29MAY2017, in a tank rollover accident while training at NTC. The other 3 members of the crew are pretty banged up, but alive. Please keep this young Soldier, his family, and the unit in your prayers through this difficult time. A lot of us on this forum have served, and know that it is always tough to lose a comrade, especially to a training accident. Please pray that his unit, which is only half way through their NTC rotation, remains vigilant, and does not allow this unfortunate event to cause any further accidents through distraction. God bless this young man for serving his nation proudly, and give his fellows the strength to learn from this event. Lord, be with SGT Thompson's family, as they struggle to understand how this could happen during training. Amen.

Just noticed the post count on this thread is growing, one day I hope to see it pass ol SD and we continue to remember the lord has his hands in all things. 
This Sunday will be my first time back in a church meeting house In a good long while and why I know the lord and I have felt the absence in my life I am really looking forward to meeting some ok friends and seeing new faces.  That scout issue left a very sour taste in my mouth and it's time to rinse it out with Christ and the good word.

As always I am appreciative of you guys and the example you each lead. 

God bless you and your friends and family and this loved and lost.

Dave I've never felt one had to go to an organized Church to know God. But for me I find the sharing of stories a help and also I like seeing when a committed group of people come together what they can do to make positive changes. So for me church works, although it has taken a few different locations to find one that worked.
Title: Re: Prayer Request thread
Post by: Flyin6 on June 03, 2017, 12:58:00 PM
Its interesting to note that the term church refers to a body of people...Like the one here on this web site

Oftentimes people think it is physical structure. I call that a church building, something that the church occupies and comes together to worship our king.

If you have 500 people meeting in a building every sunday for ten years worshiping

Then one wednesday the building falls into a sinkhole (Real possibility in the tuck)

But the following sunday those 500 people meet on nearby solid ground and worship

From God's perspective, what changed?

Post by: Bigdave_185 on June 03, 2017, 05:24:49 PM
I hadn't thought of that, or this for hat matter, a congregation of I think like fifty people who have same beliefs can be called a religion. Interesting idea for sure

I like the community and social along with the spiritual, I lost the here in my current location but the new house will be my old stomping grounds, people who I have known my hole life.

It's funny you say that Don. The church we go to is an old structure from the 1800's. But it's not historically accurate as the hurricane of '38 took off the steeple. Now it's just a drafty building with high expenses. When I was the treasurer I kept telling the vestry we needed to burn it down and rebuild. People would have fits when I said that, and I would bring up the exact example you did (well....not quite I used fire instead of a sinkhole). But they couldn't wrap their heads around the fact that without a building we would be just as much a church as with the one we have.

I absolutely hate going to church. I believe in God and our saivior Jesus Christ.  I was raised Catholic. My brothers and I had to be alter boys Saturday night service AND Sunday morning because nobody else wanted to do it. Then I started Catholic school in 10th grade. We had mass at school twice a week. I had enough. My first wife was Lutheran so I switched. The preacher was a major pain the butt. I never met a man so helpless. There's. Mouse in the trap. My light bulb is turned out. My pickup won't start. I have a flat tire. I had to go to all that stuff because my boss was a trustee. Then I got tired of the wispers behind my back and pretty much just quit going. There are some prissy hags in that church. Wispering they wore the same clothes last week. Then I was told I needs to give %13 of my income to the church? Um no.

Havi g said all that I do sent my kids to Sunday school because I believe it's important for them to learn about the bible. My wife being southern Baptist (her grandfather was fire and brimstone preacher) does a good job teaching the boys how important it is to pray.

Mike,
OK this is going to be tough. You are now entering another season of your life, but only a season.
Tough because it is going to press you in directions you have perhaps never seen before.
Now doctors are going to come up with plans. Treatments, possibly radiation, surgery, and stuff that can cause hair loss. That may be the right answer, I don't know. In fact I don't understand the whole medical process.
But here's what I do know. Jesus is the great physician.
So I would ask you to get deep, like deeper than you ever have been with God before. Have him search your sould and identify anything you need to repent of. Identify anyone or anything you need to forgive. My point is to not minimize this at all and get righteous and get right with your God and his son.
From that point the spirit can work in you. Then I want you to pray to understand the power that Jesus left with us when he resurected his son. You have the power to claim healing, to actually take authority over infirmity. I am not joking, we can do that. Ask for the filling of the holy spirit and try to speak in the prayer language.
If you get that, or you can already then speak in it 4-5 times a day and just let the spirit talk to his God. He will ask of the father what you need better than we can form words to put to it.
There is a woman, Abby Abildness...Find her on the web and contact her. Cleans yourself and make God 1000 times more important than you ever have before. Most importantly if you have religion in your life get rid of it!
Yes, cast it out. Religion is of man, not of the lord. The lord opened the door to direct communication to him when he tore the veil in the holiest of holies on that terrible/wonderful when our Jesus died on that dogwood tree.
You get this right, and you can take command over this season. It can become a season of spiritual growth and learning, not one of sickness and thoughts of death.
Sorry to be blunt, not my desire at all. We have a relationship. I have watched you quietly do the lord's work behind the scenes, so I know your heart is right. But PLEASE, shake off the baptist...Throw away the catholic, shed the lutheran, and kick the methodist along with the mormon and any other organized interpretation of man and just get with him.

James:1 2-7
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

Romans 12:12 ►
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Adding a good friend Mike, he is having a very risky open heart surgery on Thursday of this week. I realize all open heart surgeries are risky but this is deep back by his spine. Six months ago it was going to involve six separate surgeries. With advances in technology it's down to one as of Thursday. I don't know his current state with Christ. I have reached out to him in a very blunt fashion about this subject this morning. I awoke thinking heavily about him and then he texted me about his surgery. I figure that was a sign I needed to reach out to him.

Update: as I wrote this his wife sent me the text below

"Mike let me read your text.  You are amazing!  You said so many things that are good for Mike to hear!  He will be texting you later after he figures out how to respond to you.  He doesn't know I am sending this.  Don't saything please!"

Last I knew his wife was an atheist, maybe no longer after that above text?

So with that stated please pray for his acceptance of Christ. Also, I ask for you to pray for me to find the correct words and speak Christ's truth to him. In addition if you could pray for a safe surgery for him that would be great as well.

God Bless

Shawn, any update on Mike and your conversation?

Nothing today, yesterday he came back late with the "I believe in God and always figured I'm a good person" line of thinking.

And I called him on that quicker than spotting Ken with an H bumper sticker!!!!

In all seriousness though I acknowledged his thought process and told him unfortunately being a good person is great but it's not the going to be enough. I substantiated it with scripture and told him I was here for him. I told him this group of knuckleheads would be praying for him in his surgery and also for him to open his heart, no pun intended.

Another part of his argument was that the messengers have always seemed to screw this up IE: Churches and I agreed with him and assured him I didn't need a 10% donation. I even offered to set him up with the one great pastor I knew if he had time.

So no response to that yet, I liken this to a gut punch because I tend to believe I may be the only person around him that would say these things to him. Him and I have a long history and he knows I truly care about him. He did acknowledge I am one of the few he truly trusts and I think that in of itself was a positive. So I think he is trying to process all of this, I hope that is the case.

He responded this morning with a text. He's fairly stressed and his mind is working overtime.

He has been praying, I think that is a positive. Knowing I may not hear from him again I responded with the verse John 3:16 and the simple message that verse conveys which is God sent his son here to earth to die a horrible death on a cross for our sins. If we accept that as truth with our mouths and in our heart we are saved.

I then included the sinners prayer or prayer of salvation. I told him if he is praying then you're 9/10's the way there already.

The message was finished letting him know that a bunch of sorry sinners he had never met were asking for updates on him wanting to know how they could pray for him as they were concerned about his health and soul.


Update: he just responded back "thanks Shawn, I can accept that"

Thank you guys for everything.

This may sound selfish, but just reading through all the responses and posts on here for Shawn's friend Mike, whom I'm guessing most of you have never and will never meet really makes me feel good and glad that I found this forum. It's very encouraging and strengthening to be even a small part of it. Thanks to all and prayers to Shawn, mike, and his wife as well as all of you.

Title: Re: Prayer Request thread
Post by: stlaser on August 25, 2017, 08:33:00 AM
Last update I received was around 11:30 their time last night. He was moved into ICU, reflex test on left leg was good. It was however inconclusive on his right leg. They were going to try and wake him last night. Possibly pull vent & confirm his right leg. According to my wife with sedation that can take awhile for your limbs to respond coming out of it.

He was in surgery for 12.5 hours. They grafted bypasses on both sides of his heart. His aorta was so inflamed it was the size of a bicep & normally it is 1.5" OD. My wife stated that was a ticking time bomb & when it goes the only sign is some back pain and death usually takes an hour so by the time they find out what's going on your dead. So he's lucky & or blessed we feel that they got in there in time.

He did have an aneurism in his abdomen but the surgeon was not concern with it at this time. He was stable throughout the entire operation which was good.

All in all it sounds pretty good knowing how extreme of a surgery he went through yesterday. Continued prayers for full recovery. When I know more I'll update.

We all know huricanes are not good but this one is hitting close to home. My brother is stuck riding this one out. Luckily he was able to move his family to a friend's house that is way more fortified than his rental. He works at home depot and said they sold out of plywood by Tuesday. Also by Tuesday morning the roads were backed up from people fleeing south Florida. Gas stations were already running out. He said they would have had to leave last sunday but no way they could afford to out of work for over a week so they waited and prayed. Sounds like they will be taking a direct hit. He said everything is insured so we are hoping and praying for the best. This is where he is. Near Tarpon Springs. His house is in Clearwater.

I need some prayers for my boss. He had a small stroke yesterday morning. He didn't show up to work so we went to check on him. He lives right across the road from me. Something was obviously wrong but he kept saying he was fine. I had to lie to him to get him to the hospital. I told him I think he has the flu and needs a shot.
I ask for your prayers for a speedy recovery. He will be in the hospital for a few days. We also need your prayers for my brother and I to have the strength and patience to help this stubborn stubborn man. He is 70 year old bachlor. Never married. No kids and no siblings. I've been here 16 years. We are his only family. He does not understand the meaning of the word no. He does what he wants when he wants.

Prayers for your boss Jon, for the record all of us should know the signs and symptoms for a stroke. If you act fast enough they have medicine available that will reverse all the affects of a stroke entirely. However, it is a very short window of time to administer those meds, couple hours if I recall correctly.

Pretty good Tate, they removed his vent last week & put in a trake (I know that isn't spelled right). He does have a cdif infection which they are working on & it should be ok here shortly. His BP has been stable & he is set to most likely go home & finish recouping their with home nurses coming into assist. His wife Dawn has been really stressed out I have been told so prayers for her and a quick recovery for Mike. They were thinking he would have to go ltac route versus going home so that is a positive.

Man, had a crappy weekend.

My sunday school teacher and very good friend Tom Cramer died suddenly Saturday. Was passing a farm tractor on his harley when the driver turned left. He went under the batwing, died instantly.

Tom was one anointed man of God. A wonderful guy, he had traveled the holy places many times and when he taught the word, he would describe what this place or that looked like, what it smelled like, what it felt like. He had been a door gunner in a UH-1 in Vietnam and won a bronze star.

I have to work during church doing the security thing so Tom's class early morning was my church. I feel like a big void has opened up, like I don't know what's up. I went to his class anyway this morning and just sat there. Everyone did as well. I guess I will keep going there until God sends someone else to teach the word to us.

He helped found the church, and was a elder or deacon or whatever we call those guys for 36 years. He was a hell raiser who found Jesus then the next day started witnessing to men. He never stopped doing that.

His wife has not shed a tear yet. It hasn't hit home for her yet. They married right after high school. He is the only man she ever knew. She is going to crash hard, hell, we all are.

Prayers for that family and all those affected by this untimely and sudden passing of a beloved friend and man of God.

I don't need any words please, just a silent prayer for that family please...

Minor request:

Preparing to perform minor surgery on the Dmax and I?ve got this guy named MURPHY who lives in my garage!  Leaving next Friday for Arkansas pulling the camper behind, so I really need the truck in top functionality. About to replace faulty #7 glow plug and really don?t need it snapping off!  Bought special kit from Merchant Auto which uses air chisel attachment to lightly tap while you apply rotating force with a wrench on the socket extension.

Praying for an uneventful day in the garage with Murphy away visiting relatives!  Also for safe travels and relaxation while in Arkansas over Thanksgiving.

I have a request.

An unnamed member of this site is struggling. His wife just got an abnormal report from a recent scan. They are concerned. Jesus is the master physician.

We are mandated by Jesus to love our neighbor like ourselves. We express that love through prayer to the father. He wants to see his system work where his children help one another and come to him for comfort and reassurance and with all requests, great and small.

I lift her up in the name of my friend, Jesus.

Jesus, THE CHRIST, Son of God, by whom all things were brought into this world, your ways are not like our ways and we will never know, in time on this earth, your perfect and holy plan.  I ask that your will be done and that if it is to heal, heal.  If not, I pray that you provide comfort because we know that you will never place more upon us than we are able to deal with by the grace that you give.  And that in some way this is for Your glory and our witness and may we have the strength to praise you in adversity just as in health and prosperity, AMEN.

Post by: Flyin6 on December 06, 2017, 11:19:40 AM
I know the place. South of Gardez. Getting kind of high up in the hills and is actually pretty in a couple of places there.
On the road there it is something to see from the air. I would fly up and down the MSR at about 500 feet. Enough time for me to jink when getting shot at, but also a good altitude to bring my mini-guns to bear. Along that road, I named it "IED Highway"

There is not much distance between the black circles where some vehicle burned up after getting hit. I'd say, maybe 200 meters between burned circles or burned out hulks of trucks. If you read my book, I wrote of a day I was cruising north when a convoy of fuel tankers got hit. It was at that place. I saw the blossom of flame maybe 20 miles off and banked hard toward the flash. Then a second and a third. I was so dammed angry that I couldn't get there in time. I had a fully armed gunship and could have possibly killed those bastards and saved some folks. I wanted to shoot them so bad.

I don't understand it, and I hate it. I just give that one over to our father because, I really don't get the why part of all of that.

Your stepson was a brave man to walk that land. It was an area of frequent fighting. I feel for your loss. I bit of me and every other soldier who served there died there with each of ours that we left behind.

My sincere condolences

Don,

Thank you.

Bret was on a small kill team to get the people that planted the IED along that road. They inserted at night and once it started to get light they saw that they where expossed so the fell back to find a better place to set up and found what they thought was a safe place between an old mud hut and a almost 90 deg cliff. they set a primater but most of it towards the hut away from the cilff. Well those people came up the cliff and started firing killing 3. One of the soilder was able employ a morter on the bad guys as they went back down the cliff killing all of them. The other soilders told us that Bret was killed instantly. They told us that it was a 1 in a million hit, went in under his arm traveled through the chest and missed the body armor completely. Bret was able to save one of his soilders the week before his death when the soilder was hit in the arm during a fire fight. We draw peace from knowing that he didn't suffer, he was doing what he loved and he knew Jesus and is home with him now. Thank for your service I will look for your book and give it a read.

I have been tardy adding one. My wife had surgery yesterday to remove a bone chip in the outside edge of her left foot.  She was home last night doing fine.  That thing was the size of a pencil eraser and imbedded in the tendon.  She has to be off it for 6 weeks. No touching the floor. I have 2 weeks time off to help thankfully.

I have been privy to some high level conversations in large construction industry up here, avg age in most of these industries is 50.Electricians, plumbers, framers, concrete you name it, aging out.    this leads to a soon to be shortage of workers up here in Utah which would be a good time to jump into the pot and be at the top of the pile when the tip top falls off so to speak.
I was led to my contractor through good means that gave me sweeping peace when I first shook his hand. I told the wife this was going to be our builder and everything has fallen into place from there like it was ?meant to be? 


Current working environment has continued to become more toxic to my soul. Boring to my brain. I mentioned this a time or two to said contractor and he came at me with a job offer Thursday eve And an open ended timeline to decide what I want, he is all for me finishing my degree, willing to let me use this as a long term or short term goal or a stepping stone to finish school.

It goes back to my conversation with a lady on our family trip, about needing to help youth learn a trade, hard work, working with your hands is good and worthy job. 
While I excel in my current position I think that it could be a later endeavor in my life.  Not required for right now.
My physical body is craving physical work.

It feels right, it seems to easy and causing me to second guess my feelings and that is what I find troubling.   Things don?t happen easy for me to often. Much work produces much reward is usually how it goes

My experience & our paths are somewhat similar & framing is a young mans game. Not to mention from an economic standpoint we're do for downturn in housing at some point I think. Manufacturing has ups & downs but development is always pretty steady. Once you gain that MBA the higher management not middle to low are attainable. I'd say look long term.....
Title: Re: Prayer Request thread
Post by: TexasRedNeck on January 13, 2018, 10:50:23 AM
I'm with Shawn (did I say that??)  take a longer term view.

Make sure you keep your family's needs in mind too.  I'd love to do something different and work with my hands too, but I can't in good conscience walk away from the money I make until my job of getting the kids grown and on their feet is done.  Thus why I work with my hands every chance I get on the weekends.

Degrees and advanced degrees are not a bad thing, but a 40 year harvard study showed that all things being equal, emotional intelligence is the biggest key to success.  Invest in yourself and consider a personal coach.  In any field, being the best, and surviving any downturn means being better than those around you.  You don't have to outrun the bear, you just have to outrun the rest of your group.

Learn how whatever you do helps the company make profit and then innovate to drive more profit.  You'll rise quickly and be considered irreplaceable.

So think about where you can be 5-10 years from now and what the income potential is for the job/role/path you decide to take.  Money is not everything but when you have a family to support, its an important part of your role.

I would guess many of us here are of a like mind, we like to use our hands.  Further I would guess most of us feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day when you can look at something you made/ built.  At the end of a long, hard physically demanding day where I have built something with my own hands I'm exhausted, my body tired, my muscles sour but my soul happy.

I currently spend most of my work day in front of a computer screen.  Even after a busy day where I know I have accomplished a great deal/ completed important tasks, I do not feel as accomplished as the days I work with my hands at home.  It does not help that the union has a heavy presence at my factory which limits the amount of hand on work I can do to nearly zero.  That is why I started my own side business.  It gives me the sense of accomplishment I need and some extra funds to buy a new gun, or take the family on vacation without dipping into the normal budget.

Being in a similar field, I would not recommend an MBA.  That is unless you want to jump more into the business side of things which I don't sense is what you desire.  If that is the case I would recommend you switch to Mechanical Engineering.  I know many "manufacturing engineers" with mechanical degrees. I also know many people with mechanical engineering degrees in quality, supple management, project management, etc...  Most people I know with manufacturing degrees have manufacturing jobs or are somehow affiliated with the day-to-day grind in the factory.

At the very least I would wait until you find yourself a job in your new field before continuing.  Many good companies will pay for a large percentage of continuing education.  When that time comes look into the University of Madison's Department of Engineering Professional Development courses.  I am sure other schools have similar programs but UW is well known for these courses.

I feel like I am starting to ramble here.  I feel like I could fill a couple pages on the subject.  If you ever want to discuss more let me know.

I'm with Shawn (did I say that??)  take a longer term view.

Make sure you keep your family's needs in mind too.  I'd love to do something different and work with my hands too, but I can't in good conscience walk away from the money I make until my job of getting the kids grown and on their feet is done.  Thus why I work with my hands every chance I get on the weekends.

Degrees and advanced degrees are not a bad thing, but a 40 year harvard study showed that all things being equal, emotional intelligence is the biggest key to success.  Invest in yourself and consider a personal coach.  In any field, being the best, and surviving any downturn means being better than those around you.  You don't have to outrun the bear, you just have to outrun the rest of your group.

Learn how whatever you do helps the company make profit and then innovate to drive more profit.  You'll rise quickly and be considered irreplaceable.

So think about where you can be 5-10 years from now and what the income potential is for the job/role/path you decide to take.  Money is not everything but when you have a family to support, its an important part of your role.

Interesting enough we have a book on emotional intelligence on our mantle at home currently.

These two above have some really good points Dave.

I worked for a small family owned company while I built my businesses. There were many days I was stuck in the office, however being a small company I wore many hats. When I started it was a start up & I started at the bottom. There wasn?t anything but a bottom, lol. However, now being gone three years almost I guarantee I could go back there today and still be the most productive guy in that shop. Being that guy allowed me diversity and we weren?t union so it broke up the monotony. Maybe a career change isn?t what you need but a detour angling off would be better? If I had stayed in the immediate area there were many options for me with employment because of my reputation. As they say everyday you are interviewing for your next position.

Dave. TRN is spot on. It really depends on whether you want to work for a company or work for yourself. I have always worked for someone else but always in the back on my mind wanted to work for myself. (Batch concrete or Dustless Blasting business as examples). But I have always made too much money working for someone to walk away and my wife of 20 years never worked outside the house so healthcare was always a concern for family. So as I am 59 now and still looking at another 10 years of working for someone. The window for doing something different is slim to none.

My point is that you are young and appear to have the money issue (wife makes the money) handled so you have flexibility to do what you want. You never know when that could change.

Hope it all works out for you.

I think it is good for a man to work with his hands
I struggled with that concept all the years I piloted jets and helicopters. I worked all of my off time with my hands, and today, I find my ultimate peace working hard on my farm.

Colossians 3:23
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

Psalm 90:17
17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us? yes, establish the work of our hands.

Proverbs 14:23
23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

2 Timothy 2:6
6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.

1 thessalonians 4:11
and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,

2 Thessalonians 3:10-12 For even when we were with you, we would give you this command:  If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living

Proverbs 14:23  In all toil there is profit, but mere talk  tends only to poverty.

Ephesians 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.

God's been good to us. Keep my family in prayer this 2018.
- We're tracking to mostly be of debt by the spring, so the better my employer does, the better we do.
- With the adoption process  (http://real-man-truckworks-and-survival.com/index.php?board=59.0) that God direct our paths and be with EVERYONE involved in the process right down to the orphanage director and facilitator (probably the most important link in the chain) abroad.
- Healing in the family

People speak of how hard picking up step kids is hard, from the outside looking in adoption can be the next level of hard,  God Bless you and the progress you family needs to reach the end result
