Things to Pray for

Much to lift up: oil spilling through the gulf; the well being of our planet; a child who needs a heart transplant; the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan; wisdom for our political leaders; protection for our brothers and sisters who have gone to wars; the wisdom and revitalization of our churches; those who are losing their homes; the beauty of this warm spring afternoon; those who have no food and have lost hope; friendship. Lists continue until too many words silence our listing and close our cataloging.  All of it remains before you before a word is spoken. But we are compelled to speak. Let your kingdom come. Let your righteousness fill the earth. May our hearts move toward peace.
