On Sundays, I drive about 20 miles on Interstate 80 to get home from church. Today, both going and coming from church, there were LOADS of electric company support vehicles cruising east, toward the eventual power outage problems which will be associated with Hurricane Sandy.

While many are evacuating either voluntarily or because they are ordered to, these brave men and women are heading away from home (from places like Texas, Ohio, and Indiana from what we saw) towards the storm.

Will you join me in praying for them?

Father, keep these brave folks safe, and let your grace and mercy protect and defend them from harm. Be in the midst of every difficult situation and show your love to the world in the middle of all this mess. Bring them home to their families soon. Amen.
