A close friend of mine has a daughter going to school in Cairo. He’s praying hard for peace in Egypt. All of us should be!

Throngs of Egyptians today vented their rage against President Hosni Mubarak’s autocratic government. It was the second day of protests, defying a government ban on public gatherings. Police responded with tear gas and beatings in a crackdown that showed zero tolerance for dissent.

These recent anti-government protests are echoing similar uprisings in Tunisia. Together they threaten to destabilize leadership all across the Arab world.

“God, bring change in peace to Egypt. Bring calm and patience and order and wisdom.  Settle violence. Focus the passions for change on justice, mercy, boldness, courage, and calm resolve. Bring peace to Egypt. As Joseph the caretaker-father of the Prince of Peace once brought his family to Egypt to seek safety from a violent leader, make Egypt a safehaven in a world of terror. In Jesus…”

A Prayer When Bullies Bully
The other day I let JoJo, our little 9 pound poodle, outside to run around and “do his thing”. JoJo never wanders far from our country home. After a few minutes I heard a blood curdling dog-scream — a sound I’ve never heard before and hope to never hear again. I looked out the back and didn

Ice Cream: A Prayer of Thanks
“God, thank you for ice cream. Well done! Sure, we humans have been clever enough to combine your goods in a creative way, But you made the milk, the eggs, sugar, the flavors we use to fancy it up and the ice that makes it cold. Thank you, thank you. And please enjoy it with me.  Jesus, you never
