The Lord Be With You

“The Lord Be With You”


I learned late Tuesday afternoon that the jury reached a guilty verdict in the case of Jennifer Crumbley.  I struggle with trying to find the right words to comfort the families that have had to relive that day over the last several weeks. And it is possible that people will be asked to relive the events of that tragic day again, if Ethan’s father’s trial happens.

I ask for a time of prayer for the people of Oxford, Michigan and those who call the Oxford United Methodist Church their faith community.  May every person know that God is holding each of us and all of us in His loving embrace. 

I share the King James Version of the 23rd Psalm with you as I lift you up in prayer today and in the days to come. 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

And Amen.
