Sorry it has taken me so long to respond -- God blessed you with an opportunity to pray! I'm sure it helped.
This is the day that the Lord had made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; both now and ever and unto the ages of ages, Amen. ~Ruth Ann Madison, WI Link to one of my cookbooks which should also lead you to the rest of them: recipes.sparkpeople.com/Cookbooks.as p?cookbook=6445
I work for a non-profit that collects clothes and household item donations, and yesterday I called a gentleman on our list who stated that his wife is in the hospital and would I pray for her (my workplace is not a religious organization). He had a notable accent (Eastern European) and had to repeat her name 3 times before I understood that it is Alexa. It really struck me. We get the occasional God bless you or some such, but that is the first time someone asked that I pray. I told him I would, and I did when I got home and used my prayer book.
I have thought of that man all day, and was glad I could do something. I haven't been to church the past month, my excuse is Too Cold (and lazy). I am looking forward to going this week, this incident really made me think.
