As Americans celebrate Memorial Day, we ask God's protection for all our military men and women, especially those in
combat roles, such as Afghanistan, as they provide the comfortable and safe life for those us
at home. We are thankful for the sacrifices of those who died in the service of
our country for those who continue their service right now.
Dennis received a fantastic report last week ..... that no lymphoma is detected
in the latest PET scan. In the coming weeks he undergoes more intensive chemotherapy treatment for
an extremely complicated cancer.
We continue to pray for Darla, in hopes she will find comfort and peace after facing
difficult emotional issues.
Today, we celebrated Mary's and Jean's presence at church today. We pray that they are doing well.
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 Spain murdered numerous pedestrians with a motor vehicle. 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.
