Prayer & Praise
O Lord, Thou knowest what is best for us, let this or that be done, as Thou shalt please.
Give what Thou wilt, and how much Thou wilt, and when Thou wilt.
Deal with me as Thou thinkest good, and as best pleaseth Thee.
Set me where Thou wilt, and deal with me in all things just as Thou wilt.
Behold, I am Thy servant, prepared for all things; for I desire not to live unto myself, but unto Thee; and Oh, that I could do it worthily and perfectly!
Thomas à Kempis
Amen, amen….. Thy Will be done.
“Oh, that I could do it worthily and perfectly!” amen, Thomas amen indeed
Could you please continue to pray regarding the drug users and dealers who live next door to us? I have contacted the police and we are still not sure of the safest and best way to proceed. Thank you.
Lord have mercy and send peace to Erunner’s neighborhood. And protect his household from evil.
I live next door to the same kind of neighbors.
Strange cars pulling up at all hours, that you might never see again.
Usually one person gets out while others stay in the vehicle.’
This activity surges at times more than others which generally means a new shipment of drugs has arrived.
Another interesting thing is the drug distribution network sells the illegal fireworks through their network at the time of 4th of July.
The neighbors shoot of a lot of illegal rockets and such during the 4th.
What I did, since calls to the police do absolutely nothing, is i started intimidating the “lookouts.”
During drug sale times they have people at each end of the street with cell phones pretending to be using them.
They watch for the police or suspicious nark cars etc…
If they see anything they phone the dealers to alert them.
At times it is people sitting in cars or kids on bikes or even adults loitering on their phones.
I just started openly taking their pictures with a big camera with a telephoto lens.
After awhile the dealers started making deliverys instead of having people come to their house.
Not the perfect solution but it is better.
I am hoping for opportunitys to minister to them one at a time.
For now they are not to friendly understandably…
I took my wife to see the new Christian movie “Risen” this afternoon.
It was great…
still joining in the prayers for the safety of Erunner and family – Lord, settle Your peace upon them – that mysterious, calming knowing that You are there … Michael and his family, too, Lord
Thanks for your prayers. It’s such an unusual situation and we’re praying they’ll be gone soon.
Praying for you Erunner and for your neighbours. Praying they will move away or better yet, be set free from drugs by the power of Christ. (Those neighbours could have been me 40 years ago)
