For a Friend
« on: January 31, 2006, 03:23:52 PM »
Could y'all pray for a friend of mine and his family, as they go through about 5-6 months of upheaval with a job search, trying to settle, and dealing with traveling issues.  It will be pretty intense.  His name is Chris (no, not the chris who posts here).  I appreciate it.

Lord, have mercy on us all.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy and give Chris and his family strength in this difficult time.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
