The days ahead

We had a special time of prayer in the evening service last night and closed with Communion. I challenged our people to allow each news report seen and heard and each conversation with friends about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in the days ahead to remind them to pray for the survivors and recovery efforts in the Gulf states. Getting involved in relief efforts and keeping them in our prayers for the weeks and months ahead is key.

Hugh Hewitt’s piece today echoes a similar thought…

It will be a challenge for believers not living in the three states that took the direct hit to keep the suffering of these people front and center in the months ahead
