Haiti

Today while looking at digital images of the destruction in Haiti, like the rest of the world, I was shocked.

I can't even fathom the suffering of the people there right now.  Their entire infrastructure is...decimated. Everything. So many injured, so many dying...all for want of...the most basic things.

I wish I could go there to help. Never mind my EMT training lapsed long ago and I can barely remember how to open a band-aid. At least it's something.  Those people need....everything. They are in a place where every little effort helps someone, for everything is a crisis. All I can do right now is pray for them, and knowing prayer never goes to waste, that's what I will do.

Maybe most of us can't do anything other than pray, and that makes things very clear: it is what we are CALLED by God himself to do right now.

Let us not let our prayers cease for the people of Haiti and their loved ones around the world.

oh yes, a huge AMEN to that. We take so much for granted in this country, while these poor people do not have so much as a drop of water to drink. I am praying for them in my thoughts and my actions.

I know the "Enclosure" was closed for comments, but I want to express to you that this touched me deeply. I know that I, too, much stay the course and follow my Lord until the end. Perhaps we may see our life's intention when we move to our eternal life. Even so, the hard discernment will be greatly rewarded, more than we could ever imagine. I feel your pain in your words and I will be praying for you. Please pray for me as I do you.

Agreed. Prayer is powerful. Haiti suffers from one disaster after another, it is heartbreaking.
