Prayers for My Neighbors

Photo by Artem Saranin on

Last night there was a flash of light in my living room window. We looked out to see the police chief and a deputy standing there. I went to greet them on the front porch. They wanted to know if I had called them. I said “No” and then they proceeded to tell me that the address next door to me (they thought it was me!) had called in about hearing children crying out for help. I told them that children #’s 3 and 4 we’re in bed, children #’s 1 and 2 we’re watching TV with me, and no one had been screaming for help.

They went next door to check it out. Then there were a few police cars and an ambulance which left with it’s lights out. In other words, the occupant was either not badly hurt or dead.

Whatever the case, I would appreciate if you would pray for my neighbors. I know that we haven’t had a good relationship, but I really do believe that they need God desperately.

Thanks everyone,
