And I Still Believe in Prayer...


Even though the Lord chose to answer in a way we were hoping to avoid. Please pray for the Gilliam family as they navigate the tender passage of their son to a Lord they love and trust. There is comfort in knowing where Jude is going and deep, deep sorrow in his absence from their lives. We can rejoice at the unification that occurs when people gather to pray and we can have such great compassion for a loss we all know we do not want to bear. Thinking of this family...still praying, this time for comfort and healing as they grieve such an incredible loss...thank you for joining me in lifting them up.
