Your Prayers are Coveted - 8/16/06, 1-5 p.m. CST

As many of you know, Cheesehead's church and community has been through a terrible, unimaginable tragedy. You can read about it here and in subsequent posts, if you haven't already.

The purpose of this post is to ask for the concentrated and fervent prayers of us all for CH and her community on the afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 16. The visitation will be from 1:00 - 3:00 Central Standard Time, and the funeral (with Cheesehead officiating) at 3:00.

Here's a resource for figuring out what time it will be where YOU are, at that time.

Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy


  1. Kyrie eleison,
    Christe eleison,
    Kyrie eleison.


  2. I am so glad that we are doing this as community of faith, being the body of Christ for Cheesehead and her church members. Prayers.

  3. Dear friends,

    I am indebted to you. You are so kind. Thank you.

  4. I woke up this morning to pray for Cheesehead.

    We will pray her through this.

  5. The prayers of righteous women (and men) are effective - Lord in your mercy hear out prayers and bring peace to Cheesehead and her community.

  6. I am so honored to be a part of this community and be a part of this.

    Prayers being offered.

  7. Circle Cheesehead, with your presence, Holy Spirit.
    keep light near
    and darkness afar.

    Circle the victim’s family, with your peace, Sweet Jesus.
    Keep serenity within
    and turmoil without.

    Circle your flock, with your strength Heavenly Father.
    Keep protection near
    and danger afar.

    Circle your flock, with your promise Heavenly Father.
    keep hope within
    and despair without.

    Circle the victim’s family, with your quiet Sweet Jesus.
    keep tranquility within
    and anxiety without.

    Circle Cheesehead, with your love Holy Spirit.
    Keep comfort near
    and discouragement afar.
    We beseech you eternal Father, precious Son and indwelling Spirit
    shield Cheesehead and her community on every side.

  8. My prayers have been and will be with you, your congregation, and the family.

  9. praying for CH and all affected

  10. praying and praying- Amen and amen

  11. May God bless you and sustain you. May the Spirit of peace and wisdom surround you and your church family.

  12. Cheesehead,
    We have come to sit among the ashes with you.
    Job 2:8-13 8 Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. 9 His wife said to him, "Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!" 10 He replied, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?" In all this, Job did not sin in what he said. 11 When Job's three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. 12 When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads. 13 Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.

    With love,
