May you have a blessed & joy-filled Easter

Today will you take a moment to pray (or otherwise consider) the needs of others:

Those who live with wars and rumors of wars.

Those who are ill in body, mind or spirit.

Those who are without employment or a stable income.

These who are without food, clothing, or a place of shelter.

Those who distort the good news of the Gospel.

Those who are in prison.

Those who are in a prison of their own making.

Those who make gods of things and of themselves.

Those who are only fooling themselves.

Those who live as the objects of the whims of others.

Those who live without meaning and hope.

Those who weep—and those who cause their weeping.

Those who love you—and those who hate you.

May you have a blessed & joy-filled Easter

He Is Risen
