Please Pray TODAY!

pray.jpgEight months ago, a dear family very close to me underwent criminal accusation and was attacked even on issues with home schooling and discipline within the family. There has been no substantiation of any claims and no evidence presented to validate the charges. The family is involved in Christian ministry outside the United States.

Well, after eight months, the criminal trial is finally taking place. I would greatly appreciate the prayer and fasting of Christian brothers and sisters specifically today for God to be glorified through the trial and that the truth will become very clear. Pray for strength and peace for the family members involved.

There is the possibility that the whole ordeal could come to a close today if the Lord so blesses, otherwise the trial could be delayed and extended for months.  Please pray today!!

    This is a difficult issue no matter what the issues are. To be accused of a crime and to have to go through the legal system is not fun.

    Please don’t take this the wrong way. I don’t know the family or the situation. I hope they are found guilty if this is another case where we have some poor kid getting beat badly by some IFB nutjob for not memorizing enough verses or something like that. Usually in these cases the people doing the beating are so self-righteous and clueless that they actually think they are in the right…….Again, I don’t know the circumstances. I’m not trying to be offensive at all.

    Here’s what I’m referring to……Check it out. These people actually had the temerity to proclaim their innocence and think they did nothing wrong.

  3. Not even close. I agree with your sentiments about the other situation but that is not the case here at all. Please pray.

    Hello again. Because of cases like the one I mentioned and numerous others in recent history, whenever I hear of a Christian being taken to court for family/child issues, discipline, etc., my natural reaction is to cringe and to think that they are guilty. That is probably wrong on my part. Our American legal system is wisely set up so we are innocent until proven guilty……Please accept my apologies for making any undue and non-related comparisons.

    Brian, the guys in my office and I have stopped what were doing to help bathe this in prayer.

    Why are we so quick to assume the worst about someone or some situation that we don’t know the details of? Wouldn’t it be great to “believe all things” and “think no evil”? I’m meeting with a lady right now that has been destroyed because people believe only the dirt instead of believing the best about others until we have undeniable proof of the negative? We tend to be quick to judge and slow to understand.
    Just a thought to ponder I guess.
