Day 3 - The Auction Has Ended, the Need for Prayer Continues


Dear Reader, I was trying to think about what I would write for this last post regarding the #bringbackourgirls Art Auction.  While it is the last day of the auction, the need for prayers and concern has not ended.  We really do not know what will happen to those young girls in Nigeria, but our prayers should be just as fervent tomorrow, next week, next month as they are today.
Prayers for all young girls in the US, in Japan, in Nigeria, in Kenya, in South Africa, in Russia, in Saudi Arabia, in Iran, in the Caribbean Islands, in Las Vegas, in Detroit, in the Appalachian Mountains, in New York, everywhere.  We have been given an assignment by Jesus...Acts 1:8-9 says "And you shall receive power when the Holy Ghost has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and to the utter most parts of the earth."  Regardless of your denomination or beliefs we have been called to be witnesses, through our art, through our words, through our example, through our prayers and through our love.
Thank you for reading my posts the past few days, for commenting on my facebook page, for all that you have done to keep the word alive.  There are many places in this world in need of prayer as I said earlier, there are two psalms that you can copy, keep someplace where you can see them and pray as often as you can - Psalm 1 and Psalm 91.
I am humbled to have been apart of this fantastic event, and encouraged to continue to search for ways to help in some small way to make this world a better place.  I am humbled that someone actually purchased my painting.  I am just humbled.
Thank You to Jessica Sporn for introducing us to this wonderful event and making us aware of  Thank for placing a call for Art and a call for concern.  Jessica, you are truly an inspiration.  Friends, please check out Jessica's blog
A special Thank you to Marianne Lanuti Shreder (you know why).
