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.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

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.
