Pray for those dealing with record snow
« on: February 06, 2010, 06:21:49 PM »
From Pittsburgh through the metro D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, Delaware and South New Jersey, people are digging out from record snow. Pray for their health, safety and warmth during the storm and its aftermath. 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.

We got a good bit where I live, but we have the equipment to deal with it.  Unfortunately, not the case for everyone.

Grant those in the Mid-Atlantic regions the health, strength and patience to endure another blast of winter weather and heavy snow which is predicted for today and tomorrow! Grant warmth,shelter and comfort to those who remain without heat and are likely to continue without heat through the coming days. Lord, have mercy.
