Continuing in prayer for Haiti

I want to encourage you today on this day of sorrow, prayer and fasting for Haiti.  If you saw the news, you know that Haiti suffered another major aftershock of 5.9.  They definitely need our continued prayers.  Here is a website I found that is reporting some of the news firsthand from Wesleyans in Haiti.

 As you think of the great need there, I encourage you to be at prayer.  The prophet Samuel once said to king Saul of Israel, “Far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you” (1 Sa 12:23 NIV).   May we feel that way about our brothers and sisters in Haiti during this time of severe testing.  I encourage you to be involved in the discipline of fasting today or some other time this week too.  Eva’s class has been studying it and she has put a good encouraging word about fasting on her class page on our church website.  I recommend it.
