We can pray!

A close friend Shirley Leathermon shared this with me:

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Would You Send This Please


It is said a picture is worth a thousand words

but it leaves me speechless and  tears in my eyes.



We have a long list of good friends whose husbands are deploying

to Iraq next month. One of the wives sent me this. We feel

compelled to send it on. Your prayers are deeply appreciated.


These guys deserve our love,

our hugs and most powerfully,

our prayers.


Prayer Request:


I understand that life in Iraq is very difficult to bear right now.

Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance and safety.


Send this on after a short prayer; please don't break it:


"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.

Protect them as they protect us.


Bless them and their families for the selfless acts

they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."


When you receive this, please stop for a moment

and say a prayer for our troops around the world.


There's nothing attached; just send this to all in your address book.

Do not let it stop with you, please -- of all the gifts you could give a

US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm's way,

prayer is the very best !!!

but when around those with it is easily caught."

but to increase my standard of giving."

Worse - they don't even  know certain Giants exist.  
Those who are not accomplishing  much in life don't have to worry about Giants."
