Keep Those Prayers Coming

Please pray for me as I am harboring a LOT of anger right now. It is not anger towards God, but anger towards some who claim to be His servants.
There is a certain group which plans to picket Sam's funeral tomorrow. We are going to do our best to ignore them. Our goal is to help the Thomsen family avoid them. They called our church a "leper colony." I left an online comment thanking them because a leper colony is exactly where Jesus would be.
They claim that Sam was never taught the gospel. They claim that we have spoken against them. Both statements are lies.
Sam knows a God whose love is immeasurable and whose mercy knows no bounds. Sam is resting in His arms even as we speak.
But my mercy and love drains with each hateful comment I hear from these people. They have succeeded in making me angry. Please pray that in my anger I do not sin.

You and all of your church family are in our prayers. The things that people will do is sometimes too much to comprehend!
