Prayers needed please..

  1. I just found out that my nephew's National Guard unit is going to be called up in the fall. I am heartsick and scared. Your prayers for him and others are greatly appreciated. I do not agree with the war itself, but have always and WILL always support our brave troops in harms way. Anyhow, Matt would appreciate your prayers, and so would I. Thank you my beloved friends.

    All those involved with this war remain in my prayers... both our troops and the innocent civilians on both sides.

    It sure comes home in a hurry when it's one of "yours"... wish him well.

    "Never ending" is so right Scrubs. So many thoughts run thru my mind about this war, none of them good.

    I am against war and with this one, I think it is a disgrace how people waste life as if there is no tomorrow. I feel for all the people who are caught in the middle of the war specially the victims.(Well...so far everybody is a victim including their respective families.) Such sorrow and grief are only things that this war has brought upon us.

    Prayers to your family and to everyone caught up with the chaos.

    God bless you all!!!

    i will pray for your nephew's safety, theresa........everyone here knows exactly what i think of this war, so i won't belabor the point here. regardless of what i feel about their commander-in-chief (one of my recent patients called him "ten pounds *edited for language*in a five-pound sack"), i too support our brave military men and women, wherever they may serve.

    my 18-year-old leaves for boot camp herself in 2 1/2 months. i've given up hope that this mess will be over by the time she graduates from her advanced training program.......i know that not everyone who joins the army will end up in iraq, but with her going into the medical corps, where else would she be needed as urgently?!

    may more reasonable people prevail, and may all our troops be brought home soon. (if not sooner, the morning after inauguration day 2005 sounds good to me.)

    You will have my prayers every day, as well as all the other families of soldiers already deployed and still being deployed. Please keep us informed. God be with him.

    Prayers and positive thoughts. We have several of our nurses and doctors in Iraq now. I remember when my husband had orders too.
