The above was from the FBIS.

We need to pray for our Brothers and Sisters in Saudi Arabia. While we are at it, let's also pray for King Faud. Imagine if he were to get saved!


I also came across this widget while doing some research today. I'm just trying it out to see how often it is updated. Let me know what you think.

From what I have heard, today is the day that everyone at NiSource will hear what will happen to them. Pray for everyone there that they will either rest in Christ (if they are saved) or come to know Him (if they are not saved). Because God knows what will happen to those who are His. He promises to take care of us. He promises to provide for us. If you do not have a personal relationship with Christ, click here to find out how you can know Him.

Cyndi and I

Please pray for Cyndi and I. I'll call it an unspoken request for right now. More details may follow. God knows. Isn't that one of the good things about God.

Don’t know what to call this one

I was reading and came across this article. The article is moving (and possibly disturbing) so click with caution.

The title of the article sums it up: "Abortion staff ignores baby boy born alive?". Here is a quote sumarizing the article:

A woman who was scheduled to have her 22-week-along pregnancy ended at a Florida abortion clinic instead delivered the baby alive in a restroom and says her pleading for help from medical staff went unheeded, even when an employee saw that the tiny boy was moving.

I don't know where to start on this one; however, I guess I'll leave it at saying we ought to pray for Angele (the mother), the staff at the clinic, and everyone involved. They need God's love shown to them. If they aren't saved, someone needs to tell them of God's Son who was born to die–born to die that we might live.

When I first read the article, I was going to write about how heartless everyone seemed to be. But then it struck me: the people involved may not be saved. If they aren't saved why should they be any different. Then, I realized, right now, what everyone needed was someone to demonstrate God's love to them. I don't live in Flordia, so I don't know what I can do. At the least, I can pray that God will send someone to them that they may be saved.

Prayer Request

When I got to work this morning, Randy (my boss) mentioned that Alan wouldn't be in. Alan's grandma had passed away over the weekend. We need to remember Alan and his family in our prayers

This wasn't totally unexpected. Alan had mentioned on Friday that his grandma wasn't doing well; however, I didn't get the impression that it would be this soon at all.

Christians in Iran

We need to pray for this colonel in the Iranian army. linked to this story. It seems like our brother converted “…many years ago…” but it has just now become an issue. He was arrested in 2004 when police raided a church meeting.

The only thing I know to is pray. I guess we could always contact the Iranian Embassy in Washington. On second thought, that may be interesting. Here is a link to the Iranian Embassy homepage. It has their address in Washinton.

If you do want to write a letter, Voice of the Martyrs has some good information about writing letters.

Prayer Request

My parents are working towards going on a mission trip with the IMB to work with an "almost" unreached People Group. I say almost unreached because there are only a few christians in this people group. They have heard the gospel, but they are still in spiritual darkness. Pray for my parents that they will do God's will and everything will work out how it needs to for them.
