Prayer Requests 10-31-12

What should we pray for today?

And could you please continue to pray for those of us still dealing with the aftermath of this storm.

Also, I’ve witnessed many good things about my neighbors and friends in the neighborhood. Despite the conditions, many are going out of their way to help others. My neighbor Jimmy is one such, and I’d ask you to pray for him. He’s interested, and has questions about God, but isn’t quite there yet. May the Lord show him the answers he seeks thru this experience.

Thanks all.

Good morning! Well, for 5 more minutes it is.

Still no power. Todays free WiFi is from the fine folks at McDonalds.

Quote of the Day

“This stinks!”

Me

šŸ™‚

We’re hoping to have power back soon. The stuff in the fridge is a loss. But between ice and a time share on a generator from a good friend and neighbor, the freezer is still good. The problem now is it’s getting cold, and the furnace needs electric to run. Continued prayer is appreciated.

Thanks all.

Prayer Requests 10-30-12

I hope everyone made it thru last night unscathed. No power at my place, they say it could be days. Ā 

šŸ˜¦

AndĀ hope everyone continues to pray for those still in the storm’s path.

What else should we pray about today?

Psalm 150

1 Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise God in his sanctuary;Ā praise him in his mighty heavens.

2 Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.

3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,Ā praise him with the harp and lyre,

4 praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe,

5 praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

What’s news to you?

Sandy, aka Frankenstorm, continues to be the big story.

From Weather.com via TWC

“Our latest projected path takes the center of Sandy into the Northeast coast between Long Island and the Delmarva Peninsula.

However, it is very important to not focus on the center of our projected path map since the major impacts will extend across a wide area well away from where Sandy’s center eventually moves inland.”

And here’s 5 reasons it will be epic, also from TWC

Here’s the advisory from the NHC

It’s caused the cancellation of nearly 8,000 flights, via the WSJ

“Thousands of people were stranded Sunday as U.S. airlines canceled nearly 8,000 flights through Tuesday ahead of the two storm systems converging on the East Coast.

With Hurricane Sandy looming, airlines suspended operations at airports from Washington up to Boston. Carriers canceled 1,270 flights scheduled for Sunday, according to FlightAware.com, a flight-tracking website. As of Sunday night, airlines also canceled 5,900 flights scheduled for Monday and almost 800 flights Tuesday. FlightAware said it expects airlines to cancel more flights scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.Ā  Many travelers will have to wait until Wednesday to fly.”

AndĀ let’s hope it doesn’t end upĀ being politicized.

From France24

“A top aide to Barack Obama voiced fears Sunday that Hurricane Sandy could hurt the president’s re-election chances by reducing turnout, as the impending storm forced both candidates to cancel campaign stops.

Republican challenger Mitt Romney received good news in two key swing states, winning the endorsement in Iowa of the main newspaper, the Des Moines Register, and tying Obama in a newly-released poll in all-important Ohio.

But nine days out from the nailbiter November 6 election, all eyes were on Hurricane Sandy and how the potentially catastrophic storm might play out on the neck-and-neck race for the White House.”

And from ABC Ā ,this should be a given

“The White House has announced President Obama is cancelling some of his campaign travel Monday as Hurricane Sandy is expected to veer on to the East Coast.”

More Here

“As East Coast residents brace for Hurricane Sandy, President Obama visited the Federal Emergency Management Agencyā€™s headquarters this afternoon to receive a briefing on the latest preparations for the storm, expected to make landfall late Monday evening.”

And on a non-storm note…….

Creepy Kids for Obama, or just another reason to not let public schools indoctrinate/educate your kids. Unless you like drones.

And you kids are kinda freaking me out.

Now I need some Steven Crowder to wash that out of my brain.
