BabyBlueCafe: Prayer Vigil Begins

We are preparing to receive the ruling from the Court of Judge Randy Bellows regarding the applicability of the Virginia Division Statute 57-9 very soon.

We thought it might be helpful and a good thing to spend the time between now and when the ruling is handed down in focused prayer.

This is only the beginning, we are often reminded. This isn't a sprint - it's a marathon. But however the path turns now - it does take a signfiicant turn.

And in time - very soon - we will know what turn is before us. It would be truly outstanding if you join us in this time of prayer - whatever side of the opinion you may find yourselves on, it's never too late to pray.

Our confidence remains in the Rock that cannot be moved, even though the storms of our life pour over it, it remains steady and steadfast and sure. What ever comes in the next day or two, may we stand with mercy and kindness on the Rock of our Lord Jesus Christ, with - as Lincoln once said - malice toward none and charity for all.

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
-Isaiah 28:16

Dear Lord,

Be with those defending a not so little stone bridge in Virginia. They are at the point of the spear in this spiritual battle that is being waged in the heavenly realm.

From this morning's daily office (I could think of no better prayer):

Psalm 18:1-20 Diligam te, Domine.

Peace and blessings to our brothers and sisters in VA, as we wait with you.

My Bible Verse of the Day was a very helpful reminder

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1Timothy 2:5)

May we continue to put our trust in Him, no matter the outcome.

With love,

May the LORD be with both groups in this time with His comfort and peace. In whatever form the ruling takes may it be used to conform all parties closer into the likeness of Christ.

Thanks for all the wonderful postings-- this is an excellent reminder that I need to be in prayer at all times.

One thing to pray about is that the reasonable people still in the Diocese of Virginia will find their voice and challenge the waste and unreasonableness of this lasuite.
