Please include me on the Prayer List as I have a complete workup at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. No life threatening things anticipated, just lots of painful things that make life less enjoyable.

There's a young man, whom w/ his wife is soon expecting his first child/ren: twins. He was terribly injured last night (I saw it happen), and facing a long rehabilitation.

THE PRAYER LIST – 27TH. MAY 2011 — 2 Comments

  1. I do think, at times, that it is only prayer that keeps us from being utterly crushed by the pain and sadness and horrors of the world.

    Prayers indeed – for all here and especially for those who have no one to pray for them.

  2. One of the psalms for this morning ended with “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem” and I found myself sitting there in silence, while all the other unpeaceful places in the world scrolled by, and I sat there for a very long time.

    Candle lit.
