For a Friend in Despair
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:47:34 PM »
Christ is risen!

I know I have asked for prayers (repeatedly) for my friend Jon in the past. I would ask that you would continue to pray for him this evening. He is in a deep despair and mental anguish over the stress his job is causing him, and I fear he is on the verge of a breakdown.

Please, pray that God "opens a door" for him so that he can leave this job, and that the Lord will ease his suffering.

Thank you!

I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

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