    Thank you Dr. Fimister for your words. My heart has been so anxious and sad at the state of our world and especially of the state of our nation. Your words remind me to not be angry at God, but to listen to Him and continue in His way. A special thanks for your thoughts on the LORD’s Prayer. I am somewhat overweight, and I almost feel guilty praying for daily bread, although I’m grateful for it. Thinking of manna as “bread of the morrow” which sustains us in persecution is very helpful at this unsettling time in our nations history.
