Many prayers are needed - right now - for victims and survivors of the serious
hurricanes that have devastated Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. Pray for civilians, first responders, and relief
aid providers as they begin to recover from these disasters.
Dennis continues treatments and is experiencing side effects from chemotherapy,
but signs indicate the disease is being successfully treated.
We continue to pray for Darla, in hopes she will find comfort and peace after facing
difficult emotional issues.
We wish all success for David and Julia as start off their college experience
this month at James Madison University. And this week, Olivia and Brooke
relocate to Austin, Texas. We pray they will all settle in smoothly to new life
changes and challenges.
A senseless attitude supporting the murder of police officers
seems to be raging across our country. The latest incidents involve attacks in
Florida and Pennsylvania. Two officers were murdered, and four others were
wounded. This turmoil
and lawlessness begs for God's intervention to bring strength,
character, and reconciliation to our hearts nationwide.
Terrorists in Europe have attacked - and murdered - numerous civilians. There is
no justification for these actions. The world needs to unite in efforts to
eliminate the cancerous scourge known as ISIS.
Christians throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, are being
mercilessly slaughtered for their faith. We pray that world leaders find
solutions and take actions to stop the murderous extremists who conduct these attacks.
The Islamic-inspired attacks in Europe are deplorable and can only be alleviated
through the Love of God. Pray for resolution.
Please help us to be mindful of the vicious attack on America on September 11,
2001, and to be wary of our
adversaries from that fateful day. We pray for the souls of the innocents
who were lost on September 11, 2001. We pray for wisdom and guidance for
our national leaders and those of our allies as we combat the evil of that day.
Please pray for the on-going efforts of Young Life and Cru staff members, especially
local ones, as they work to keep our high school students focused on making wise
decisions in their lives.
