Praying like no manana

I thought, in the spirit of professional discipleship, and living on the principle of trusting the Lord for supplying every little thing that I need, I would try something interesting for my birthday. Something sort of the equivalent of asking my Boss for a raise--a birthday bonus. So my dear friends, if you wanted to give me a birthday present, you could shoot up a prayer (a general, all-encompassing prayer counts for something too!) for these things for me and it would be just as good as giving it. (BIG SMILE) The main reason why I will write this here is because I think everyone should do this too, because it's quite inspiring to write and think of how easy it would be for the Lord to supply one or two or ALL of the things on the list--and because I want to prove the Lord right here and now so that he will answer my (and your!) fervent prayers.

Things I Want to Ask Jesus for On My Birthday
(Which I Could Have Asked For Any Time, Really, But Only Got the Idea For On My Birthday)
  • A new house with thick walls, a big genkan, big living room in a private corner of the house, big windows, big kitchen and diningroom, close to a train station on a main line.
  • A fruit contact that gives us fruit every week (and not just bananas, but ALL sorts of things, especially mangos!!).
  • Comfortable good-sample sandal-heels to wear on outreach (and elsewhere), since I've worn out the first pair the Lord supplied for me. (I've been wearing them since you gave them to me when you left the country. They have served me well!!) Answered!!! Thanks Marie!! I love them!!
  • Money to travel and meet sheep and 12FS students.
  • An outreach partner.
  • A piano.
  • A nice witnessing bag.
  • Good quality make-up.
  • Good shampoo and rinse and body soap for the whole home (and the HCS too.)
  • Good pens (as much like "hi-tec" pens as possible!)
  • Yummy coffee pick-up, enough for all the homes in the area. ANSWERED 2 days before my birthday!!
  • Good lap-tops for Marie, Mars, Gene, Josh, and Nozo (who are ever so deserving)
  • Modern-looking, nice furniture for living room and dining room
  • Big TV and/or projector and cables
  • A small camera to take pictures for testimonies and PR album
  • Good work space in new house (lighting, nice chairs and desks, etc)
  • Hard disk and flash disk ANSWERED!!! Thanks Mom and Dad!
  • Total healing of my hands
  • Yumi to be able to come every week from Tokyo for 12 FS, like she wants to.
  • A classy, good sample watch, to replace this faithful sports-watch that I have been wearing every day for 2 whole years (and is looking quite...not so pretty).
  • PDA
  • A keitai (with no paperwork trouble like last time)
  • Good songs from Heaven, and more opportunities to use them.
  • Nice wonderful hard-working deoderant for everyone on the earth.
  • To be able to do more COLs with Bayside.
  • To have a successful Christmas outreach plan.
  • Enough money to buy my friends presents on their birthdays.
  • More time for exercise.
  • For the Landlord to let us move with 2 month's notice.
  • For a good speedy desktop to install hefty programs on.
  • UPDATED: See Ryan and her kids once a week.

Haha Mary. Look at my hands next time you see me. And the keitai I'm using right now is officially my Dad's, and we're going to get me a new one soon.

Unfortunately we just gave a piano away about a month ago, I should have asked if you wanted it.
