Prayers go out to all those needing our prayers. Glad to hear Lincoln is doing good and Pete too. N7 my heart and prayers go out to your grandchilds other grandparents and their grandchild.

Prayers for all who don't think they need them right now for any special problems. We all need them to keep us strong for our every day work.
