Tuesday afternoon

We had Al Smith's funeral this morning, our hearts filled with gratitude. Thank you for your prayers for his family and friends.

Ruth Skinner was in a car wreck on Saturday, but thankfully she only has bruises and no serious injuries.

Lyn Dorris asks for our prayers for her friend, Wendy who had surgery on Monday.

We pray for the family of Greg Rumburg. His uncle, Harold Jeffries died on Saturday; this is a heavy load to bear for Greg's mother who lost two brothers within just a few weeks.

We hold in our prayers those who were killed in the attacks on the Boston Marathon, their families and friends, those who were injured, and those who work hard to find the person(s) responsible for the bombings. We offer special prayers for all those who just don't feel safe anymore, anywhere. Lord, have mercy on us all.
