The news of the judge's decision not to review Terri's case, which would require the reinstatement of her feeding tubes during the process, grieves all of us. These prayers keep coming into my heart. Somebody help me, please, to re-form them in real faith:
Please, Lord, let Your victory over sin and death be shown NOW, by restoring Terri's food and water. Let the banner of faith in Jesus Christ be made temporally glorious to the eyes of the fallen world, which makes it easier for me to carry it.
Please, Lord, show the world the wages of sin. Let Michael fail in all he does, disturb the peace of his family and friends. Let his name be made a badge of shame and dishonor for all his family to wear. Teach them, visit upon them the punishment of his sin.
The second one I can easily refute even while it rises to my mind. Vengeance is clearly not mine, and I must forgive. That first one, though, is stuck in my brain.
