Please pray for Shawn
« on: November 14, 2010, 11:03:22 PM »
Today after my family came home from my crismation, my son came inside from sitting out on the porch with his wife.  He said there was a man on the sidewalk asking for prayer.  His name is Shawn, he was very confused, somewhat paranoid, did not smell of alcohol, but was obviously homeless.  We prayed with him and for him for a long time, he sobbed repeatedly on my shoulder.  It was heart breaking to see him so mentally confused.  He went on his way. . . Please pray for him.
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

Lord, have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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.

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
