I had another great NFP guest post lined up for today, but I have a heavy heart after the events of the week. I think it’s appropriate to have a quiet day on the blog with requests for prayer for the victims of the tragedies.
My husband is a marathoner, ultra-marathoner, and triathlete and if I weren’t so close to my due date, it’s very likely he or both of us would have been at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Many of his running friends were in the race or spectating and are safe, thank God. Please continue to pray for the victims of the bombs and their families.
Last night we got the terrible news about the huge explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, TX, just a few miles north of where we went to college in Waco. Dozens feared dead and hundreds injured. I know our friends in Waco are doing everything they can to donate blood for the victims and assist the churches that are sheltering the evacuees. We visited West several times when we lived in TX. Please pray for the good people that call it home.
Lord, have mercy.
