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:
2/12 – D asked for prayers for John Rogers and his family. John was diagnosed with liver cancer last week and is at stage 3. He is not doing well and any prayers for him and his family would be appreciated. His daughters are 8, 11, and 14. A “GoFundMe” has been established if anyone wishes to contribute: https://gofund.me/1fe7aabb
5/6 Update – John is home and the treatments for cancer are helping him keep food down. He has lost a lot of weight, but his faith is getting him through this. Everyone is very grateful for the prayers being sent their way. They are still waiting to see if this is just one cancer they are dealing with or two, but it is liver cancer for sure.
5/12 Update – John had to go back to the hospital because of issues with the treatments he has been taking. They are now also dealing with a blood clot in his kidney.
6/17 Update – The treatments were not effective, so for now, chemotherapy has been stopped. He has been meeting with the doctors to see where to go from here, if new cancer treatments available would work for him. Please keep up the prayers for John and his family, as they are helping them get through this time.

5/2 – creeper sends a request that a fellow blogger needs our prayers. MOTUS is fighting two brain tumors, metastasized from esophageal cancer.
http://www.michellesmirror.com/2022/05/a-motus-health-update.html#.Ym_kIExOn1I
6/17 Update – MOTUS has been on oral chemo for several weeks, and started IV chemo and immunotherapy last Thursday (all day long, 7 am – 3:30 pm). The good news is, one of the biomarkers found indicates that MOTUS’ cancer could respond well to monoclonal antibodies. She is fatigued and has some side effects, but so far it’s tolerable. Thank you for the prayers and good wishes; they are greatly appreciated.

5/28 – FortWorthMike requests prayers for his grandniece, Chloe, and her family, to find a kidney to transplant. Chloe is a toddler who has been on this prayer list before, and it has helped her. She was born with bad kidneys and had them removed soon after birth. She’s had multiple health issues, and is now getting daily dialysis at home. Her mother’s kidneys aren’t a match, and her father’s are a match, but are too large for her little body. Thanks for your prayers!

5/28 – Ladyl requests prayers for a very special person in her life who has been diagnosed with a fairly treatable leukemia. Although Mike is over 29, he is nonetheless a young man. She would appreciate prayers for complete healing and optimal management of his disease.

5/29 – MammaB is off work for several weeks per her doctor’s instructions for mental health. She is supposed to go back on Tuesday and is an apprehensive wreck. Between her dad’s death in January, having Chinese covid twice since then, and her bipolar, she feels overwhelmed. But she is the sole wage early (PapaB is on disability for early onset dementia) and unemployment isn’t an option. Any prayers would be appreciated.

5/31 – Prayers are needed for Fenelon Spoke, who had surgery this week for cancer. She is recovering at home.
6/8 Update – The good news is that they seem to have caught all her cancer. It was stage one, so she is thanking God and is grateful for all the prayers of the horde.

6/1 – Prayers are requested for a 3-year-old named Eli, who just had 2 brain surgeries for a rare vascular condition. Please pray for Eli’s recovery.
6/4 Update – Eli has woken up after surgery and is starting to show hopeful signs. The family is grateful for the prayers and asks them to continue.
6/11 Update – Eli is sitting up and eating real food. They are optimistic for his full recovery.

6/2 – Prayers are needed for Squid, whose life has imploded over the last twelve hours, and any prayers for peace would be greatly appreciated.
6/3 Update – Squid says thanks for the prayers - it will get better.

6/4 – vmom stabby stabby stabby stabby stabamillion asks for prayers for her hubby, whose recent PSA blood test showed higher PSA levels than before. Please pray that it’s not something bad.
6/11 Update – Hubby is a-ok, per the doctor.

6/4 – Anti doesn’t matter asks for comfort for her mother. Her mother is now hospitalized and is now on a ventilator, positive for Covid, after 2 at-home negative Covid tests. Her mother also has congestive heart failure, and with the Covid protocols, there is concern that her heart condition might not be treated properly.
6/10 Update – Anti doesn’t matter’s mother passed away.

6/6 – Fox2! requests prayers for his niece-in-law, Courtney, who is expecting a son in August, but has been in preterm labor for the last 3 weeks.

6/7 – Fenelon Spoke asks for prayers for her son to (God willing) get a job for the summer, before he transfers (again, God willing) to finish up his four-year degree in agricultural studies.

6/7 – Teresa in Fort Worth asks for prayers for Natasha and her family. Teresa was at the airport, waiting for a flight, when Natasha received a phone call that her son had just died. Natasha was on her way to visit her hospitalized son, and he died of Sickle Cell before she could get there. Natasha was extremely upset, so Teresa in Fort Worth stayed with her until Natasha’s husband could get there. Please pray for the son’s family, too, as he and his wife have a 1 year old daughter, Gigi.

6/9 – Robert requests that everyone pray that he develops common sense – maybe sometime before he hits 50?

6/10 – Notsothoreau asks for prayers for whig, who is getting monoclonal antibody treatment to try to restart whig’s immune system.

6/13 – USNtaim asks for prayers for his brother, who burned his feet (3rd degree burns). He has no feeling in his feet, so didn’t know he was burning them on hot concrete, or how bad the burns were. He was sent to ER, and put on IV antibiotics to treat the infection creeping up his legs. On top of this, he’s in the middle of a divorce.
6/14 Update – He is headed home, since the antibiotics are working and his feet will heal.

6/16 – Dave in Fla asks for prayers for Mark, who just passed away. It appears he died from heart failure. He was a lurker here and a commentor at Stoaty’s site. He was gay, a passionate conservative, and a heck of a nice guy. He was from WI and lived in London.

6/17 – Prayers are needed for Sponge and his family, at the passing of his mother.

6/19 – browndog asks for prayers for his boys, who has not heard from in 2.5 years. He would appreciate some divine intervention to motivate them to open their hears to a reconciliation.

6/20 – Nurse Ratched asks for prayers for her oldest son, who has Covid. He’s not as bad as he was initially, but is still pretty sick.

6/23 – Ann Wilson, aka Empire asked for prayers that all would go smoothly, as one of her sisters (T) has decided it’s time for her to go into assisted living due to her rapidly declining health. Ann and her other sister (R) are considerably relieved, as they have been trying to convince T of this for quite some time.

6/24 – San Franpsycho asks for prayers for poor Mrs. F. who has been coughing and emetic for the last 36 hours, and for Boy F. who, lacking the ability to understand the situation, is distraught with worry.

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.


Your humble Cob would also like to say a Prayer of Thanksgiving. The SCOTUS overturning Roe vs. Wade, thank you Lord may more of your children be saved from the death of abortion.


***


On this last Saturday of June just remember these simple rules:

1) Opine and/or bloviate.
2) Do not run with sharp objects.
3) Don't piss in our pool.
4) Be kind to one another.
5) Yes, have a wonderful weekend!

14 Having our Realtor coming out today to discuss putting the house up for sale. Should be interesting.

I went with daughter #3 to look at houses yesterday (well, really only townhouses and old duplexes. It's absolutely appalling what $500k+ buys in NoVa now. OTOH, they'll inherit our house, so I guess it works out. Tough to recalibrate from what I'm used to to what someone starting out considers acceptable.

Posted by: Ace-Endorsed Author A.H. Lloyd at June 25, 2022 08:47 AM (llXky)

The Left is a spent force. They've spent 50 years crowing about how there would be a "huge" public outcry if abortion was ever overturned, and now we're at that point and... nothing except a few paid wokesters wandering around DC with signs. They still (for the moment) control the heights, but they've already lost everything else. They're a dying bunch of aristos, holed up in their castles insisting that everything is just like the old days, while the peasants begin to revolt.

Thanks for the coffee thread MisHum.

Stormed last night, I was up looking out our big windows and a big flash occurred to the south. Better half came out shocked (half asleep) as she was awakened by the light. The boom was not delayed very long.
This morning we have cloud cover and a little breeze, it's going to be a muggy hot one here.

Posted by: Ignoramus at June 25, 2022 09:01 AM


I read an opinion piece on that topic the other day. The author was lamenting the fact that SCOTUS is most likely going to reign in the EPA from regulating "carbon pollution" and how it will be up to congress to act to combat global warming.


It's like these people are actually brain dead and have never had a civics class or read the constitution.

A lot of us would make the case that overturning the "Chevron" precedent would be even more important than overturning Roe v. Wade. They may not go that far, but even trimming it back a bit would help us a lot. For those unfamiliar with the ruling, the Chevron Precedent gave all Federal Agency decisions the power to act on their own without specific authorization from Congress, and protected them from being challenged in Court. (it's more complex than that, but that's a one sentence explanation) This, in the early 80's, is what supercharged the Bureaucracy and allowed it to take over so much of American society.

46 Concerning abortion "protests", there's this at Insty:

I GUESS THEY DON’T LIKE AN UPPITY BLACK MAN: Protests Planned Outside Justice Thomas’s Home After Abortion Ruling. I’ve noticed that most of the hate aimed at individual justices I’ve seen on social media is directed at Thomas, even though he didn’t author the Dobbs opinion, Alito did. That’s racism, straight up.

50 In the EPA case, Congress some time ago passed a Clean Air bill, authorizing the EPA to regulate a long list of harmful industrial gases, a list which was quite specific, things like NOX and carbon monoxide. CO2 was NOT on the list, but the EPA has taken the position that "oh Congress meant that too, so we can now regulate that." The Conservative legal position is "No, if Congress wants you to control that, Congress needs to pass a bill telling you that you have the power to control that."

Posted by: Tom Servo at June 25, 2022 09:12 AM (r46W7)

51 Amidst all the moaning about Dobbs, it's pointed out, again at Insty, that the number of people who really care is quite small. And there's this very pithy insight:

I think support for the cultural universe Roe was rooted in has been declining for a long time. Attitudes toward the Population control have shifted in the Marxist heartland of China, Russia and Western Europe. Children of Men, not Soylent Green, is our new nightmare movie.

It sounds great. But the junta will just ignore the ruling, or use some other buried rule to make the targets miserable. Remember:

55 The AZ crowd got sporty last night.
The AZ senate was in session and there was an attempt to break into the building, broken windows, pushing on/breaching doors.
Police had to use tear gas. The senate went to a secure room to finish their votes (last day of session). I read one member comment he was very comfortable sitting next to 3 people open carrying.
There are now 2 abortion laws on the AZ books. The one from the territorial days is as harsh as you would expect (thankfully), the new one was signed last March. Both are active... it'll have to go to the AZ supremes, in reality the March one should have changed the old one; but, they're not that smart.

56 So, I saw this bit of juicy irony:

Governor Jared Polis stated that politicians should not be involved in healthcare decisions. “We will continue to choose freedom, stand against government control over our bodies, and will not retreat to an archaic era where the powerful few controlled the freedoms over our bodies and health decisions."(KJCT News, June 24. 2022)

Is this the same guy?

"Early in the pandemic, Jared Polis said he’d be as happy as anyone to lighten the heavy hand of state government once COVID was retreating. Having created, amended or extended roughly 400 executive orders since March 2020, the governor told The Denver Post he’s ready to let go of the unprecedented authority he’s maintained." (Boulder Daily Camera June 2021)

Here is what I mean - the left has spent 2 months telling everyone that there would be Riots Across the Country, in every city! What happened? Nothing at all.

I've tried fasting in the past, but I have a hard time with it. It's probably because I don't stick it out past the initial wall I hit with hunger pangs and some headaches. Not just dieting this time though. Started jogging again and lifting some weights. First few days were horrible. But after a week, I feel much better and actually have more energy.

75 Something that we all know, but it bears repeating - the George Floyd riots were NOT "spontaneous riots" caused by outrage - they were all paid for demonstrations organized and directed by members of the Dem Party, at least some of the Tech Billionaires (Men like Tom Steyer and Bill Gates) and with an assist from their Chinese government "friends". It was all a big push to make the country seem ungovernable and drive Trump out of office.

Today, the people who organized and paid for those riots know that it would discredit their own administration, so they will not allow it. There will be a few renegade anarchists who can't resist acting out (such as at the AZ legislature last night) but overall, there is very little they can do. You wanna burn down Seattle and Portland again? Sure, go for it, guys!

It's important to remember *why* that happened in both those cities, especially the ridiculous "CHAZ" in Seattle. It happened because the local leftist governments *wanted* it to happen, because they believed it furthered their Leftist political goals. Remember when the Mayor of Seattle ordered her police to abandon on of their stations and turn it over to the rioters? She was behind it, all the way. When the local government finally got tired of it and saw that it was causing more harm to them than good, they ended it.

Local officials can *always* stop this kind of thing, if they want to. And if it happens again in Seattle and Portland, it's because the local government is once again telling them "go ahead, you get a free pass from us."

Most decisions about abortion are simply decisions about convenience. The woman just doesn't want to be "burdened" by a baby, as Obama put it. It's ridiculous to pretend that's a "healthcare" decision. It has nothing to do with health. It's a convenience decision, or a lifestyle decision, or a financial decision, or a social decision, but it's not a healthcare decision.

I have read that "well regulated" meant well equipped in the vernacular of the times.


Most States had requirements for all males from 16-60 be equipped with a rifle or musket with a minimum number of pre made rounds (or the equivalent in loose powder and shot) for their long gun. 30 rounds was a common number to be mandated.

Posted by: Captain Obvious, Laird o' the Sea at June 25, 2022 09:34 AM


Equipped. in the 18 century, "regulated" meant equipped in this context. A "regular army" was one where everyone had common equipment (rifle, powder horn, uniform, etc), as opposed to the "irregular army", which was more ad hoc (brings what you gots).

When they said "the Continental Congress regulated the army", it was not an imposition of rules and regulations, but rather that they funded equipping (arming) them.

Hard to imagine a PP abortion doc seeing what he/she does as "sacred." They're standing there consulting their handy-dandy list of what prices they can get for various baby body parts, and dreaming about their next Porsche or Lamborghini.

They see their pregnant patients as giant dollar signs, not "sacred" vessels of human life.

Somewhere in the federalist papers I read that they really didn't want a standing army since they just got done fighting one, but knew it was kind of needed as a rapid response. The ultimate check on that army was an armed population should that army ever fall under the control of a despot. The 2A was not about a standing army, or else it would say so, it was about the militia, meaning the people. The 2A was a tool given to the people to keep the army in check, thats why it says necessary to the security of a free state. They are talking about your state of being, is it freedom or is it tyranny. If it was about the army it would say to the security of a free country. The govt was never supposed to have a monopoly on firepower.

___________

When I was a kid growing up in Va, I had a second-floor bedroom that looked out over the backyard. In summertime, the maple trees would be lighted up like Christmas trees with lightening bugs.

For some reason, they preferred the maple trees to the oak trees and the fruit trees.

289 Somewhere in the federalist papers I read that they really didn't want a standing army since they just got done fighting one, but knew it was kind of needed as a rapid response. The ultimate check on that army was an armed population should that army ever fall under the control of a despot. The 2A was not about a standing army, or else it would say so, it was about the militia, meaning the people. The 2A was a tool given to the people to keep the army in check, thats why it says necessary to the security of a free state. They are talking about your state of being, is it freedom or is it tyranny. If it was about the army it would say to the security of a free country. The govt was never supposed to have a monopoly on firepower.

294 As Rodrigo Borgia mentioned above, there are no lightning bugs in the Pacific Northwest. I think they just can't get past the Rockies.

Ever few years when I was a kid we'd visit a little town in Missouri called Brookfield where my dad's mom lived. We all loved Gramma Jerry, and the little town was charming, but it was the lightning bugs we all looked forward to because we'd always visit in summer.

I mean, the 100+ degree weather and 7000% humidity wasn't charming but the lighting bugs (and nearly nonexistent fireworks laws) made up for it.

For this, they actually have some legal and constitutional basis: the founding fathers were worried about whether things could ever get back to normal, but clearly stated that the executive gets very powerful abilities during a national crisis.

330 But though the scheme of disciplining the whole nation must be abandoned as mischievous or impracticable; yet it is a matter of the utmost importance that a well-digested plan should, as soon as possible, be adopted for the proper establishment of the militia. The attention of the government ought particularly to be directed to the formation of a select corps of moderate extent, upon such principles as will really fit them for service in case of need. By thus circumscribing the plan, it will be possible to have an excellent body of well-trained militia, ready to take the field whenever the defense of the State shall require it. This will not only lessen the call for military establishments, but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist."

354 A few people asked about green being worn at protests yesterday. Apparently, green (scarfs) apparel has been around for quite a while as scarfs were used in South America by activists fighting to decrimilize abortion. (Green as a color of health and hope.) Obviously, the U.S. has expanded to Tee shirts v. scarfs as a symbol for pro-abortion activism.

Banking that the majority of voters will not be entirely opposed to abortion and/or strict limitations AND utilizing the color green from South America abortion activists is planning ahead for the mid-term elections.

If the unfettered abortionists are wanting to cause violent upheaval, they are gonna need to highlight a story about an unarmed black man being forced to carry a baby to term.

365 Good morning all.
I looked outside and heard the birds singing and did not see an angry mob so all is good here.

Yesterday I had to replace a pair of computer glasses that were falling apart as they were in a twice used frame. Two years ago, after moving here went to LensCrafters. $450 for regular glasses. Tried to go there and sign on the door, masks required so walked away.
Went to local chain, no masks. People great. Fixed 2 pairs of backup glasses that needed repair and asked for cheapest frames for computer glasses as I only wear them inside.
$600! I bought a couch for $699 2 years ago. I bought a washing machine 4 years ago for $450.
Why, back in the day, I could buy gas for $2.25 a gallon.
This is getting ridiculous.

458 Based on what's been revealed from the investigations into the abortionists who got lazy and let too many of their patients die, it looks like a fair number are serial killers who found a way to get paid for their passion.

which investigation are you referring to?

In the 1990s I got involved in the pro-life movement. That's how I learned about Maternal Deaths - the term for women who died at the hands of a SAFE, LEGAL abortion. At the time, those deaths were actually reported in the local newspapers.

459 A lot of us would make the case that overturning the "Chevron" precedent would be even more important than overturning Roe v. Wade. They may not go that far, but even trimming it back a bit would help us a lot. For those unfamiliar with the ruling, the Chevron Precedent gave all Federal Agency decisions the power to act on their own without specific authorization from Congress, and protected them from being challenged in Court. (it's more complex than that, but that's a one sentence explanation) This, in the early 80's, is what supercharged the Bureaucracy and allowed it to take over so much of American society.

Instead, it's their way only that is allowable. Why? Why so committed to this?

It was news to her at that time, suggesting that his supposed transition was relatively late in life.

Little did I know that he would then came to prominence as PA's COVID czar, and later become the face of officially sanctioned insanity, anointed as a four-star admiral in the Public Health Service.

Hopefully whig is still thread-slumming and will give a better answer but IIRC, the "fighting words" doctrine is from another case (looked it up: Chaplinsky) and the Court has been quietly walking that back too. So a direct, immediate threat like "I'm gonna beat your ass" is not protected speech but a simple insult like "Your mother is a whore" (probably) is.
