    I would ask for prayers for an fms friend of mine who lives in OR. She and her husband went out last Sunday, one week ago, while they were gone, their house burned to the ground. I can only imagine what she is facing, just trying to replace meds would be a huge chore.
    They lost everything. That of course meant address books and computer. The Lord works in mysterious ways. The day before the fire, she took a digital photo of her cat who was draped over the computer monitor. She had thought about using it on her desktop as it was cute. She had sent it to her sister, who called her back and said NO, don't use it, as you can read the email on the screen.
    With all that had to be going through her head, with not even a coat, she thought of me, and how she would contact me, not remembering my email. But her sister said that my address was on the email with the cat photo.
    I feel God reached clear across the US . Please pray for continued strength for her, she seems to be holding up, her husband is not.
    Thank you.

    It is so heartbreaking to hear about such a horrible tragedy that this family has went through.

    I will certainly be praying for this family.

    Asatrump, I am new here but really feel for your friend, the ordeal of losing everything & having to start from scratch is awful. She is very fortunate to have you as a friend, your support will mean a lot. I too appreciate the support my e mail friends have given me of late, I would have had a worse time if my e mail friend hadn't 'held my hand'. So stay with your friend in words & prayers, I know it will mean a lot to her.

    I will be praying for this family. We lost a home to a fire and it is the most devasting thing. Its been three years and the sadness and loss is still with me.

    But we were so lucky that we weren`t there and nobody lost their life and your friend is too. Most material things can be replaced but not a lost life. The hardest part is losing your pictures, family video and your life mementos you had saved. My family got together and gave us a lot of family photos and I had given my mom a couple of videos of the kids when they were younger so she gave me those back. That meant alot to us.

    It taught us a lesson, not to get too attached to your material things because they could be gone in an instant. You just have to let it go and start over.

    Thoughts and prayers to this family.

    Dear Lord I just ask that you would encamp your angels around this family and that you would send many people to help them in their time of need.

    Only you Lord can turn bad things into good for Your Glory.
    Thank You that You are helping them and giving them the peace that they need now.

    I pray Lord that they will lean on you and love you more for the Blessings that you will bring to there lives.

    In Jesus name I pray

    Dear Lord,

    I am asking you to be a mighty and strong protector for this family. Lord turn their tragedy into a victory. I ask that you open the hearts of their community to meet all their needs, physical, spiritual and mental.

    I pray this in Jesus' name,
