A Day for Prayers

Today is a day for prayers and healing. Please pray for those affected by the earthquakes. Pray that those who are afraid be comforted, that those who are lost be found, that those who are hungry and tired be given food and rest. Pray that those who are given extraordinary opportunities to show their character and mettle not only live up to their potential, but that they exceed it. And pray that God be glorified throughout.

Be thankful for what you have, and for what you do not. Be thankful for those who survived and for the time we were allowed to have with those who were lost. Be thankful for what remains untouched and for the opportunity to improve upon that which was destroyed.

The last few days have seen some remarkable events unfolding. Revolutions, protests, mobs and now earthquakes. Let's take this day to count our blessings and review our priorities before we move on.

Just as a quick update on WI; the assembly passed the budget repair bill on Thursday and Governor Walker signed it into law this morning. Yes, there was more bad behavior on the part of those who would prefer mob rule to the rule of law, but they pale in significance to the earthquakes in the Ring of Fire.

"In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth." ~ Psalm 18:6-7

Definitely a time for prayer.
