For a close friend
« on: July 31, 2009, 03:24:17 PM »
Brothers and sisters in Christ,

Please pray for my friends Tim and Elizabeth as the people from social services come over in about an hour to give their house a once over for the final approval of their home daycare service.  There was some difficulty getting the health department's approval (due to red tape kind of things, not actual health violations).  This is the final step before they are approved.

Lord, have mercy!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
