I have to be careful of what I say here, because my brother-in-law, Ray, is in a very bad way and is not able to give me his permission to ask for prayers. I’m not at liberty to describe the nature of his affliction. But it’s bad. Very bad. And I would appreciate any prayers on his behalf.
O Lord our God, have mercy on my brother-in-law and please, please do something to help him, according to your wisdom and your love. We are your people, and we have recourse to prayer: we know you hear us, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
