Off to President's Prayer Breakfast in Washington
Did you notice the silk painting? It's only a small section of one of my silk scarves and it's after Romans 12:21: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good," and entitled "Overcoming." In a few hours I'll be flying to Washington D.C. for the President's Prayer Breakfast. (Speaking ofovercoming! We'll be praying up a storm.) It's a three-day event with a National Leadership gathering as well. There will be a congressional dinner and leadership luncheon besides the famous Breakfast with the Pres., as I like to call it. I was a speaker for the event in '08, and it's quite spectacular with leaders and dignitaries from around the world. It is a grave time for prayer for this world, not only our beautiful nation. I learned more about the condition of the world (things the news media don't tell us) at the U.N. Prayer Summit a few months ago in New York. As we gathered in those impressive chambers listening to leaders from around the world tell their stories it was most sobering. Talk about a call for intercession! I will try to blog when I'm in Washingotn. I understand the city is under 5 inches of snow. This Minnesota girl will be right at home. Please pray for me. Are you telling anyone to join us on this blog? I hope so!
