Prayer Request
It is a beautiful day here. I just love it when the heat is finally gone and we get that clear, crisp breeze. The sky is such a brilliant blue with a few feathery clouds high in the sky. And on such a beautiful day some are hurting.

I have a prayer request that came in a letter to my parents from a close friend in Pennsylvania. He is a retired Army Chaplain and recently became the Chaplain for the Pennsylvania State Police. When the horrible shooting at the Amish School House happened, he was called immediately. It is his duty to offer support to the troopers who respond to such tragedies. He arrived within minutes of the actual shooting. It was just as awful as we all imagined.

He ministered to so many during those next hours and days – the Amish families as well as the troopers - but he asked us not to forget to pray for the troopers. He wrote about how deeply affected they all were by what they had seen. He has spent a lot of time counseling and praying with them and says they are doing well – but they do need our prayers.

I have often thought how difficult their job must be, but I must confess that I hadn’t thought to pray for them. My prayers were for the families of those precious little girls. So I thought I would pass on this prayer request to you. Perhaps it will be a time when those who don’t know the Lord will accept Jesus as their Savior. Certainly the Amish Community has been a profound witness of love and grace and forgiveness to the whole world. Those men and women in law enforcement are called on to do things that would just crush some of us and this had to be particularly difficult. Please remember them in your prayers. Thanks so much.

The brave men and women in law enforcement will be in my prayers. Bless their hearts with strength for all they are called upon to wittness and see through.

The Amish families have been a piller of strength and grace, as well. My heartfelt prayers have been with them, as well.

Hope you continue to enjoy that refreshing crisp cool weather. We are getting some in the next couple of days too. :)

This was so horrible. I have been praying and will continue to do so. I can't imagine what these gentle people are going through.

Oh Linda. How could we forget the people who responded to that tragedy. I should have known. My husband is a first responder and paramedic and the things he's seen, well, he won't even go into detail with me, they're so sad.

So yes, let's all pray for every single person who saw the horror of what happened to those poor little girls that awful day. How sweet of you to remind us.
