Pray for comfort, peace, and blessings upon this family.

Good point, I'm sure you're right.  We're still told to pray for all men everywhere...maybe a "special" blessing upon them may ensue, and sometimes, I think God uses prayer for others, as a blessing and to help the ones that are doing the praying!   :thumbsup:

Prayer is interesting.  God is in control, but we're told to pray.  I've seen Him use our frailty, including our pitiful little prayers, to do some amazing things.  As I said it seems to me God uses all that to bring people together, bring us strength, magnify/glorify His name by showing obvious acts of His hand in answer to prayer, etc.  Just a touching, sad (through the lenses of this life) situation.

God's love and mercy to these dear folks...

 :cloud9: Amen, agreeing with the Comforter to come to all involved in that situation, and for the fire of the Holy Ghost to topple that regime, without firing a shot. Blessings....

Yes Jab - it's like a concert. He's conducting - we're praying in rhythm with what He's doing... :thumbsup:

I like that.  :thumbsup:


Prayers on the way.
There are just no words.
I can't imagine what it is like to live under such persecution.

"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Amen to all four of you.  Her family is hurting, but the lady having laid down her life for the Gospel is truely the one that's now OK...better than OK.  She will receive her crown of righteousness.
