For the many disasters

Post by CodeMonkey » Tue Sep 19, 2017 5:16 pm

There have been so many disasters in recent days, with more on the horizon. Let us pray for the victims of Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria. Also let us remember the people of Mexico.

Praying.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

With over 8.5 billion on this small blue marble now, we may expect just about anything to occur.

Yes. I just interviewed a kid at the local Bible college who is from Puebla. Sounds horrible.
