Pray. Pray without ceasing.

No inspiration. No revelation of deep spiritual import. It's just not there. I feel dead in the water, once again without a rudder or sail, no oars, no compass. And it doesn't help that the water is placid and unmoving. This time is a not a good place to be. I have a life preserver: Jesus. And though seemingly silent, He's there. This I know.

I'm glad we have a new progressive President-Elect and a Can-Do Vice President-Elect. I am relieved beyond measure at the outcome of the senate races too. I am not content with the anti-civil rights movement which keeps people who love each other from marrying. We are getting closer though, and it won't be long before this insane bigotry is ended. Pray for open minds and open hearts. Pray.

Pray for the Diocese of Oregon as it begins convention tomorrow in Salem, Oregon. Pray for our soon to be new President and his administration; pray for his safety and that of his family. Pray for dogs rescued from puppy mills, that their lives of horror will end on a loving note in a forever home. Pray for homeless children on the streets of our nation, for the elderly homeless without a place to live out their days in peace and safety. Pray for unity of all Americans. Pray. Pray without ceasing.

I'm glad you posted. Blessings.

A friend just told me about a book by Steve Harper that might speak to you right now--"Talking in the Dark."
