Stopped over at the blog of my dear friend Geoffrey Deweese, a military attorney stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington; husband of my longtime friend Melody Fields, and father of two newborn twins, and two more beautiful children.

I remember when Geoffrey wrote for Seattle Pacific’s student newspaper. He has always been a guy with a heart as big or bigger than his formidable intellect. His job is challenging, and his courage is great. He and Melody are making a big difference in many ways.

Anyway, when I got to his blog, I found something I didn’t expect, but probably should have. And it’s given me the focus of my prayers here as I sign off for the night. Maybe it will give focus to your prayers as well.

And then I would suggest one small addendum as well: Pray also for those who oppose us, for those who would fire on our troops.
