FOR YOUR PRAYERS

From It's Margaret:

Well, I did lose my job, and now we are putting our house on the market, selling our books and some other stuff that will be too expensive to move --and striving to go with the flow and trusting that what comes next will be what we are 'supposed' to be doing!

For more details about our friend's predicament, check out
LEAVE IT WHERE JESUS FLANG IT.

In a similar vein, my Facebook friend, Reverend John, is "in need of a new place to serve as an Episcopal priest"  and to be "kept in our prayers."

And don't forget Padre Mickey and everyone else who has given up everything to serve the people of God and who are now facing pain and hardship because of the secular mindsets of parish councils, bishops and search committees who all seem to be looking for God Almighty to tell them what nice people they all are every Sunday morning.

***

A 19-​year old teen, Marcellus Andrews, was kicked and beaten to death early Friday morning in Waterloo, Iowa, as anti-​gay slurs were hurled by as yet unknown assailants. The teen was taken off life support Saturday after spending the night in the hospital. Andrews had been waiting at a friend’s house when a group drove up in a truck and hurled anti-​gay slurs at the teen. No one knows why the mob attacked Andrews, but it is apparent they new him as they knew his name.

Full details at THE NEW CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

THE PRAYER LIST: 23RD. AUGUST 2011 — 4 Comments

  1. For Margaret, for John, for Mickey, for all whose working lives have been so frighteningly interrupted.

    Rest in peace, Marcellus. May your attackers be brought to justice and may their hearts be converted to insight and compassion some day — some good, good day.

  2. Prayers for all of us unemployed.

    RIP/RIG, Marcellus. Liberating Lord Christ, bring us JUSTICE!!!!

  3. Prayers ascended, candle lit.

    I hear the dark hound snuffling around, the one that says prayer doesn’t do any good. Please dare to pray.
