Please pray for G, who went into hospital this morning to have a cancerous growth removed from one of her kidneys. The prognosis is very good.

I was laid off from my job shortly before Memorial Day. I'd been uncertain about my future there since our new VP came on board last year, so the real blow was receiving a minimal severance package on top of the fact that my former employer doesn't pay unemployment insurance due to its incorporation as a church (which, in reality, it's not).

For now, this time off is an opportunity to rest and de-stress. I don't know what lies ahead, but as I stated in the subtitle of my blog, sometimes the journey takes you places you never dreamed existed.

Hugs - I needs 'em. I am very tired, very lonely, very sick at heart. Lots of regrets.


From Grandmère Mimi:

If you'd include prayers about the drought in Louisiana, I'd appreciate it. We haven't had rain for months. I don't know whether God is a rainmaker, but pray for God's comfort for God's people in their distress and concern about the lack of rain. The farmers, especially, are hurting.



Syrian rights groups say the death toll in a two-day government crackdown on protesters in the northwest has risen to 35 as exiled opposition figures called for the isolation of President Bashar al-Assad. The violent clashes began Saturday and continued into Sunday, after thousands of residents turned out for the funerals of other anti-government protesters killed in the crackdown.



A volcano in south-central Chile has continued to erupt, shooting out pumice stones and plumes of ash six miles high and three miles wide. More than 3,500 people were evacuated at the weekend from their homes near the volcano, and took shelter in government accommodation or friends' homes. Ash is being blown towards neighbouring Argentina.

THE PRAYER LIST – 6TH. JUNE 2011 — 5 Comments

  1. As prayers ascend, the irony comes home: drought in Louisiana whileThe River is just off flood. The
    Lord provides, but then there is the Corps of Engineers.
    vw inpted, close enough for government work.

  2. And the rains came! The first rain since Mardi Gras, March 8.

    Thanks for the prayers. Thanks be to God, who must be a rainmaker.

    Prayers for all.

  3. Urgent Prayer Request:

    Lesbian Blogger Forcibly Seized in Damascus

    Amina Abdallah Araf al Omari, an out lesbian blogger from Damascus, Syria, was seized by three men earlier today, her cousin wrote on her blog, ‘A Gay Girl in Damascus’, earlier today:

    Amina told the friend that she would go ahead and they were separated.Amina had, apparently, identified the person she was to meet. However, while her companion was still close by, Amina was seized by three men in their early 20’s. According to the witness (who does not want her identity known), the men were armed. Amina hit one of them and told the friend to go find her father.

    One of the men then put his hand over Amina’s mouth and they hustled her into a red Dacia Logan with a window sticker of Basel Assad. The witness did not get the tag number. She promptly went and found Amina’s father.

    The men are assumed to be members of one of the security services or the Baath Party militia. Amina’s present location is unknown and it is unclear if she is in a jail or being held elsewhere in Damascus.

    Later, it was updated:

    I have been on the telephone with both her parents and all that we can say right now is that she is missing. Her father is desperately trying to find out where she is and who has taken her.

    Unfortunately, there are at least 18 different police formations in Syria as well as multiple different party militias and gangs. We do not know who took her so we do not know who to ask to get her back. It is possible that they are forcibly deporting her.

    From other family members who have been imprisoned there, we believe that she is likely to be released fairly soon. If they wanted to kill her, they would have done so.

    That is what we are all praying for.


    Pray for Amina’s safe release!!!!
