PRAYER IS POWERFUL

Yep... it is. But I wonder how Sarah Palin feels about this site. Oh, and I checked, they didn't make one for Joe Biden either, but someone made a much lamer one for John McCain. Dorks.

Anyway, I wonder how I'd feel if someone made one for me... and yes, that's an offer to all you web geniuses out there. If you build it, thousands will surely sign up to pray for me and my expanding family. I'll even send you weekly updated prayer requests :)

However, on a serious note, I got this e-mail from my old senior pastor about a prayer need in India today that he received from one of the directors of YWAM. Evidently there is mass persecution and killing of Christians occuring currently in one province or state there due to the revenge of a Hindu priest's death which is being blamed on Christians. It's so easy to think the rest of the world is worried about the stock market and not something far more concerning. Here's part of the e-mail:

Our kids and staff are locked inside and have stayed that way with doors and windows shut for the past three days. It has been a time of desperately calling on the Lord in prayer. More police have come to offer protection. In Kalahandi, the police and some local sympathizers got to our dream center and gave our staff and kids about 3 minutes notice to vacate. No one had time to even grab a change of clothes or any personal belonging. As they fled, the blood thirsty mob came to kill everyone in the building. We would have had a mass funeral there, but for His grace. In Phulbani, the mob came looking for Christian homes and missions. The local Hindu people, our neighbors turned them away by saying that there were no Christians in this area. So they left. We had favor. The same thing happened in Balasore. All our dream centers are under lock down with the kids and staff huddled inside and police outside. The fanatics are circling outside waiting for a chance to kill. Others were not so fortunate. In a nearby Catholic orphanage, the mob allowed the kids to leave and locked up a Priest and a computer teacher in house and burned them to death.

Hey Jesus followers, it's time to pray, and for more than just Sarah Palin.
