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:

3/1 – Inogame asked for prayers. He had come to the Horde after his wife miscarried 2 years ago, and appreciated our prayers and kindness. They were blessed with a little girl later that year. Now they are in the same situation. They have lost another baby and need prayers against the sorrow and depression.

3/7 - Pookysgirl sends a prayer of thanks that Pooky has been approved for SSDI benefits, and designated as 100% disabled by the VA, which doubles his monthly benefits. This means they are not in such a desperate financial situation, and it marks the end of a two+ year battle with bureaucracy.

3/11 – Jasonj asked for prayers for Barbara, his wife, to be added to the list. She had back surgery recently, and is healing well, but has a long road ahead. Also please add Alex, his son, who is a quadriplegic with a serious addiction to pain meds.

3/11 – Free Tibet asked for prayers for his friend JR, who is undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer (neuroendocrine version). Thanks to the Horde for everything.

3/15 – Fenelon Spoke asks for prayers for the church she serves – that if it’s God’s will that their financial problems might be resolved through one of several options, so they can continue to be open to the Glory of God, the lifting up of Jesus Christ, and the support of the church community, some of whom have attended there for decades. She thanks the people who have prayed. She also asks for prayers for FenSon, who is having interviews for a college summer internship on 3/21. Prayers that he does his best and that someone would be open to his skills and interests. And prayers are still appreciated for Jessie, their dear church organist, for complete healing.
3/23 Update: There is hope that an organization may buy some of the church’s land, which would help their financial problems. Please keep praying for God’s will do be done in that situation. Also, Jessie is doing better. She hopes to be able to play some for Easter. Prayers are also needed for Ray, who broke his hip and is in rehab.

3/15 – NJ asked for prayers for his wife Christina. She had surgery in December which resulted in CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) in her right foot. The pain is interfering with her daily activities and preventing her from sleeping properly.

3/15 – Half Dozen asked for prayers from the Horde. One of her adult sons was diagnosed with a brain tumor. They are still evaluating him to decide next steps. It will probably involve brain surgery.
3/19 Update: Her son is in the hospital, and scheduled for surgery to remove the tumor that is at the point where the spinal cord connects into the brain. They have determined that the tumor has not spread to other areas of his body. Thanks for the prayers and friendship.

3/15 – Tcn in AK, Hail to the Thief asked for prayers for DH, who goes under the knife on Friday to remove an old stim from his spinal column. This will allow him to have an MRI, to figure out what to do about his 3 collapsed disks. Prayers, but optimistic prayers at this point.

3/16 – Cybersmythe continues to request prayers for his friend D.C., an occasional reader of the AoSHQ, who is in the hospital after having a stroke and some other health issues.
3/27 Update: Cybersmyth’s friend has died, so he requests prayers for her family and that her soul finds its way home. Cybersmythe has also been laid off and requests prayers from the Horde to find something new.

3/18 – Megthered asks that the Horde would keep her and her family in our thoughts and prayers. Her husband has to have open heart aortic valve replacement and her daughter has been diagnosed with lymphoma. They are being treated at Ohio State University and the family has rallied around them.

3/18 – gp asks for prayers for Al, who is homebound, needy, and lonely. He also asks for prayers for Brian, who is afflicted by the horrible maladies of old age.

3/20 – Ladyl asked for prayers for her son, who was hospitalized for a serious infection that happened after a minor injury.

3/22 – Sal asked for prayers for her sister’s ex, who became very ill while away from home (at his daughter’s destination wedding). He is in ICU with sepsis and kidney function problems.

3/29 – Notsothoreau asked for prayers for her co-worker, C. He is a young guy and the new management is grinding him down. Prayers that he can quickly find a new job where he is appreciated.

3/30 – Hrothgar asked for prayers on behalf of Ed L., who is a member of the Moron Gun Club. Ed’s mother passed away in Hawaii this past weekend. He and his brother will be busy settling her affairs there (in Hawaii) over the two weeks or so. He did get to see her over the Christmas holiday, which was a blessing.

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.


Romans 8:26-27
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

"Then the obstetrician picked up the forceps and yanked me out."

*************

I get what you're going for here, but in reality, yanking is incorrect. Forceps are used when the second stage of vaginal delivery is held up by failure of the baby's shoulder to clear the pelvic rim. The procedure involves relieving shoulder dystocia by carefully applying the forceps and exerting a firm but steady downward force to allow the shoulder to ease its way past the pelvic rim.

9 Don't mean to pre-empt Fenelon, but


I have been reappointed to my church for another year for an appointment season that starts in July, yet my boss won't give us time to hear from the agency that said they would buy our land. He must hear from them within two weeks or we'll be shut down. It is not our polity to have a top heavy decision like this without consultation . I think we were on a list of small churches that needed to be closed because they need the money and it doesn't make any difference that other churches which are more in the hole on their denominational
Dues are allowed to stay open. I don't think the care about the dear people who will be impacted by this. They just want the money. I am livid.

32 In the middle of all the change & stress with moving my mom in with me, we had a fantastic evening yesterday. Took her over to her house to check on things, and pick up some things (mostly her rocking chair, and I grabbed her favorite pic of my brother & me back when we were cutie patooties - she can't be mad at those little faces). She didn't argue with me to stay there. On the way back we had a great talk and when we stopped for dinner, we were laughing and joking like we usually do.

The sad thing was, she asked me something about Jesse but didn't remember he had died.

Tomorrow I may be ready for the loony bin, but I'm grateful we can still have fun together.

I read something interesting, if true.

All lamb meat is grass-fed exclusively because sheep won't eat feed.

So, in theory anyway, including more lamb in your diet is a healthier way to eat because of the better fats and vitamin content produced by exclusive grass eating.

Which makes lamb "more healthy" than beef for those of you with cholesterol issues. Though I suppose eating exclusively grade-fed beef would be much the same thing.

So...there you go as your Easter feast approaches.

Prayers Fen.

When I started going to my church, I knew nothing about the finances of it. I just knew I liked the congregation, the expository sermons and worshipping there. The usual attendance was about 15-20 people.

After two years, they finally made me a member. To my surprise, it was ostensibly done because they intended to ask me to be the treasurer because no one else would do it.....

62 As expected, Admiral Levine, in remarks at the National Transgender Day of Visibility in K.C. yesterday omitted any reference to Audrey Hale's murder of three innocent children and doubled down on his vow to. normalize puberty blockers and mutilating surgery for children. This from a Pediatrician, ostensibly an advocate for children.

“We need to go from schoolteacher to schoolteacher, from school board to school board, from county commissioners to county commissioners. We need to be living our lives and showing them who we are. Make no mistake, the right and conservatives are using us right now for political purposes. They think they gain an advantage by demonizing us, but I don’t think these discriminatory laws will stand. I think the wheels will start to eventually turn, and justice will win out. It will take time, but if we work with our allies, we can make it happen.”

This is reprehensible. Especially coming from a man who lived as a man, married and father of two until he was 52 years old. Don't let the grandmotherly outward presentation fool you, he is a radical extremist.

How can I say this? The one grandmother I had was an unpleasant woman - distant, severe, manipulative - and Levine could never be even remotely as grandmotherly as her. He is a creepy man, and no amount of makeup and jewelry can hide it.

I notice in his speech he references public schools, schoolboards, and government institutions. Time to remove/distance ones self from these as much as possible.

87 .....it was only then that I saw the dire straights the church was in.

At my first annual financial report, I was asked to include some analysis of when the church would close (how many months....not years).

In my report instead of giving a estimate based on numbers, I simply said "The church will close when the Lord wants it closed, but if we are faithful he will provide, be it here or in another fellowship of believers. But I think we have a purpose, and it is to praise Him and spread his gospel of good news."

Several members weren't really happy with that analysis. But I told them the numbers were in front of them and if they wanted a different analysis then they could see our losses would close the doors in 6 months.

They started asking about selling the building and other things. I told them the board would take these things into consideration, but in the meantime, would somebody like to volunteer to clean the building? And I volunteered myself for lawn maintenance.

And gradually the congregation began doing things that ordinarily cost the church money. And then they began giving more in the plate....

It isn't anything I did. It was the Lord providing through His faithful people and softening their hearts into a community instead of a group of individuals.

He can turn things around for your congregation Fen, if it is in His will. I believe He will. And I will pray to that end. I'd volunteer to mow your yard, but Jersey is a long way away. But if you would like me to tithe to your church as well, I'd do so gratefully. Just let me know how to do so.

Levine claims to have faced hate, yet his public appearances are always in front of a sympathetic audiences (pro-trans rallies, WPATH conferences, official photo ops, etc.). I'll bet most of the "hate" he decries is self-generated, or projected by him.

To get her job done, Levine said she's learned that she has to redirect the hate she faces as a trans woman in America.

I would stress the point that he specialized in Pediatrics, yet sympathizes with the child groomers, the purveyors of gender surgery and the Nashville shooter. He is willing to sacrifice other people's children in a pathetic attempt to justify his own bizarre life choices.

Feh- I've said enough for one day. Didn't set out to taint the thread, but the rant insisted on itself. Sorry for putting the thread off the rails.

For me, and only me, from my personal theological research and decision, George Soros simply isn't a Jew. Randi Weingarten isn't a Jew. These types aren't even 'JINO's, they've never been Jews. Anyway. Sorry about that. I am, sincerely. I'll be quiet now. I should not have brought it up.

They are Jews. Soros might not be observant, but he's willing to use the tag when needed. Weingarten and her "wife" are both Jewish. Negating the background and religion of inconvenient co-religionists is sort of understandable, but it's better to recognize that every group has people worthy of condemnation and condemn their actions. I am Jewish and I condemn the behavior of Soros, Rachel Levine, and Randi. I don't believe that saying Jews we disagree with are NOT Jews is a sensible approach. Plenty of the Jews I disagree with attend services, one is even a woke rabbi. I look silly by saying "they're not Jews". Unlike Catholics we have no communion to deny them, and, to be honest, they have a lot of support.

There are some crazy number of Social Security recipients right now. Something like 70 million. If enough of them filed that didn't have to file that would eat up every minute of the new agents time. Especially if mistakes were made. Inevitable mistakes filed on paper. Every possible form filled out at some level to the exact penny because you know, seniors are a little confused. Stapled and folded into one gigantic mess of a time sink.

Pretty much this combo.

No matter how insane the things you say are, there are always a few hundred people on the web who'll agree, and give you thumbs up and praise you and tell you they feel the same way. Whether genuinely or cynically or for a joke...the reinforcement's still there.

So, instead of your relatives or friends saying to you, "Whoa, that's nuts! Stop with that. Get treatment if you can't stop." You auger deeper and deeper into insanity.

That's how you get what we saw this week...groups of people excusing or supporting or encouraging child murder because some antisocial, angry loony didn't get called by xer whatever pronoun.

Let that marinate in your brain pan a while.

Second, hate is an emotion, and you can't control/ or legislate emotions. People are free to hate (or "hate") anyone or anything they care to. They are also free to not care (you can't force them to celebrate your existence). So suck it up, buttercup, and move on.

I told them I would absolutely not die cowering in a corner. I will take out the assailant, with my pocket knife if I have to or die trying.

Your confusion over their use of the sound "hate" is because you are accustomed to using a structured language with syntax, grammar and definition to communicate.

The folks that abuse words like "hate" don't know what that word really means, but do have a strong emotion attached to hearing or reading it.

I read something interesting, if true.

All lamb meat is grass-fed exclusively because sheep won't eat feed.

So, in theory anyway, including more lamb in your diet is a healthier way to eat because of the better fats and vitamin content produced by exclusive grass eating.

Which makes lamb "more healthy" than beef for those of you with cholesterol issues. Though I suppose eating exclusively grade-fed beef would be much the same thing.

So...there you go as your Easter feast approaches.

220 Greetings hordelings!
Here in southern Indiana it's another lovely day in paradise! Deadly tornadoes hit last night in Sullivan, Gosport, and Whiteland. McCormick Creek state park took a direct hit and some hardcore early campers got clobbered.
The boy spawn and his lady got some minor damage in Spencer.
Here on Mayhem hill we got some vicious wind but no real damage. A few loose shingles flapping around but nothing serious. Our problems come from a water heater that refuses to light and septic tank that had to be pumped out.
The tank is clear and the chore of refilling the hole dug to get to the lid beckons. It's cool and still windy. Hubbymayhem is going after the water heater.
Maybe it's all just a very elaborate, sick and twisted April fools day joke.

Well..;I'm not saying the well-applied punch to the nose can't have wondrous effects against bullies.

It can because it gives the kid a sense of respected self, even if they lose the fight.

We moved a lot when I was a wee tad, so I got to belly up to the bar and get into punch ups and I'm not a tough guy at all. But, some things must be done. However, most things don't require violence.

It's why I'm not haunted by the memory of bullies as some are, even those past 29. Well, there is one bully who took the punching me almost daily in the arm when I broke my arm. But, we moved before I healed and he didn't get his well-deserved and earned multiple punches in the nose and "bread-basket".

I have produced a million of something in my lifetime - in manufacturing. Even a small item in that volume in high speed production takes an incredible amount of time to produce. A passive aggressive action against a certain agency in tens of millions (I'm thinking 71 million - like Trump votes) would bring it, and the entire government to its knees. People simply can not key in once (or even worse, twice) millions of forms even using the latest of technology in anything even remotely close to that level.

Or, deliver George Soros back to the countries that seek his extradition. Seems like a fair deal. April 15th is coming. File for an extension, then begin Operation Overload. Nobody on this side started this fight, but if no one is backing down, it's on. Or should be.

263 We spent the rest of class instructing/discussing the OODA loop and how with the right mindset one can take out an armed individual with any or no weapon at all.

To get inside a shooter's OODA you would have to do something unexpected so that they need to reset and you hope that their response doesn't get inside yours.

Since we are talking about a deranged mind, its hard to anticipate an action that would likely accomplish the first goal. Do people in the room start hurling books and chairs at the assailant assuming that the perp isn't expecting an immediate return attack? To some degree, FPS games ought to condition people into taking fire, and the fact that soft targets are preferred by the perp indicates that they anticipate a counter-offensive.

If one believes in the concept of Imago Dei, then the answer is obvious: They are in open rebellion and enmity with God. Its a natural spiritual condition, the tranny is pretty far down the Romans Road to Reprobation (second half of Romans, chapter 1)

None of these phenomenon are random or "emergent". They are driven and the result of intent from the State.

295 Good morning! Humans keying in data will make a certain percentage of errors, no matter how good you are at keying in things. In 1999 I got a huge fine and a revised return from the IRS. It took me a year to clear it up. The problem? A 1099 form where an IRS agent keyed in a couple of extra zeroes. Didn't cost me any money, but a lot of lost sleep and anger lasting a year.
So, consider carefully your choices when filing. A little revenge can go either way.

302 If one believes in the concept of Imago Dei, then the answer is obvious: They are in open rebellion and enmity with God. Its a natural spiritual condition, the tranny is pretty far down the Romans Road to Reprobation (second half of Romans, chapter 1)

For the secularist, we have to imagine stresses and external inputs that inadequately try to describe spiritual rebellion in terms of a mental disorder.

310 I am so tired of this "hate" talk.

First, disagreeing with someone does not equal "hate." If I or anyone else do not accept that he's a woman, it doesn't mean we "hate" his or that we "erase" hem. Our opinions do not have any such magic or malice.

But it works as a strategy. So it's used. Yu can't criticize Obama or you're a racist, criticize Soros, Levine or Mayorkas and "you just hate them because they're Jews". It worked really well for Obama.

Where's the photograph of Jewish Soros in yarmulke at Temple? Soros doesn't even go through the pretense of a Biden or Pelosi, so anyone giving him religious cover is FOS. Jewish, or any religion has nothing to do with it. He's out to destroy this country and is wanted for extradition from other countries where he also performed vile acts.

316 East Omaha is suffering from the same church problems. East O is the low rent part of town, and was where most immigrants ended up. My old house was on the edge of the Italians and the Irish, and, of course, both groups had their own Catholic churches. The Germans had theirs, the Lithuanian theirs, the Poles theirs, the Ukrainians their, and so on, so on. It seemed like there was a Catholic church every couple of blocks. But the kids grew up, moved to West O, and when the parents died their houses were sold to rental companies. As the Catholic population in East O shrank, the arch diocese had to start closing and selling off these older, underutilized churches.

I'm sorry, Fen, that you and your congregation are experiencing so much financial trouble. But, sadly, it's not just the kids moving to the newer, more upscale parts of town, it's the people who have stopped going to church at all.

318 I stopped going to church when all the LGBT and BLM flags went up. When Pride became celebrated.
I went to several services where the name of Jesus never came up in a sermon.
This is just more institutional capture.

Some of the churches have brought this on themselves. Locking people out during the early days of the pandemic, forcing masks, no singing, no contact with each other during or after services, then the acceptance and celebration of all things gay...... in the name of love, of course.

I've finally started going back regularly as I heartfully missed receiving the Eucharist. But, I no longer tithe. The church will not get another penny from me.

That sounds exactly like Roxborough, Pennsylvania where I attempted to get a birth or baptismal record. Every nationality had their own church at one time. I think the high water mark was eight RC churches. Now down to two or three. Some records went left, some right, most disappeared. But I did make a nice contribution to each church for their efforts. They were all very nice and eager to help and apologized when they came up empty.

Thanks for your concern. Some churches are growing near me but are either ethnic communities that always had a strong church presence-Korean American Christians or the church up the street which calls itself "Pan African" and has a AA presence as well as Blacks from the Caribbean and Africa.

322 We actually got three new attendees (One of whom joined) during the past three years because their churches either closed too long during Covid or their church closed. I have never had a LBGT flag at any church I served, and I would have had to have lost my marbles is Jesus wasn't mentioned repeatedly in every worship service I offciate at. It would be helpful to have live streaming or have me be more up on internet technology, but I think I'm and "old time" pastor..
