Psalm 119:154

"...But you are near, O LORD, and all your commandments are true."

"My brother is in trouble, but you are near, God, and you have not forsaken him. It doesn't seem like this is a good thing, Father, but all of you commandents are true, and you have promised that you love us and want nothing but what is good for us. Thank you, Jesus, that have proven your love by offering yourself up for our punishment. Thank you that we can know you are near. Amen."

Ian seems to be making a little bit of progress since he's been home. I'm sure the familar surroundings are helping.

Please keep praying that this would help us all (especially Ian) know God and his joy better. And pray that Ian would be healed.

-Ben

This comment is for Larissa. I wrote a post on my blog for you. My younger brother was in a car accident in 2001 and was in a coma for a short while. I am praying for you and Ian.

Hello
So often throughout the day-- I think of Ian and (I don't even know him)
However I know so many people who are his friends.
I read the blog -- and I keep him in prayer--
Today as we were driving into Indiana on RTE 422 the car ahead of us had a bumper sticker and it read----
PRAYFORIAN
-- I will---
