Dwell in Safety

I had lunch with a dear friend who will be returning to China soon. If everyone could just get to know each other from different cultures one on one, there would be a lot less hatred and warfare in the world. We all seem to want the same thing deep down inside- love, acceptance, meaningful work, a safe world for us and our loved ones.

In contrast, I just read the news that last night, the police chased down the two bombing suspects right near MIT. They are from Chechnya, an area plagued by Islamic insurgency. The police were injured, one killed, in the ensuing firefight. They killed one of the suspects. The other is still out there, presumed armed and dangerous.They have urged people in Boston suburbs, including Cambridge where my son lives, to stay indoors, and not to go to work today. Mass transit is shut down, businesses have been asked to remain closed.

Please pray for the speedy capture of the remaining suspect, and for the safety of all those in his path...including my son.

Psalm 4:1,8 (NIV)
Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. [8] In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
