There is an item on the editorial page of the Democrat-Gazette which is so powerfully well stated, I just had to include it here. It is, perhaps, a bit ecumenical for some tastes, but orthodox Christians know how to properly address this one.
Pray with us
Dear Lord, Please help and heal, save and restore to full vigor, your servant-and our servant-Winthrop Paul Rockefeller, who now lies gravely ill after waging so gallant a struggle for his health most of this past year. This man has been such a good steward of his talents-material, civil and personal. Please send a healing wind in thy name and lift up him and all who are bowed low. And give us all the strength to bear whatever may come, for thy will be done. Amen.
