Shelly and I both have cousins in the military who will be deployed into war zones in the coming weeks. My cousin is going to Afghanistan and Shelly's cousin will be going to Iraq. Please keep them and all our military in your prayers. May they be protected from all harm and may they come back home safe and soon.
I also ask that you pray for all those who have lost their job. Unemployment remains high and several people are losing their job and it is a great stress on so many families. Please pray for all those who have lost their job or all those who are seeking jobs. Pray that they do not lose hope and that they will soon find employment.
