Top: 'Join me in prayer. Let's storm heaven's gate'
This is in response to last week’s column, “How does one write a story with no happy ending?”
I’m asking the community to lift up Curt, Caroline, Dylan, Eric and Luke Thorson and their family in your prayers, asking for a miracle. We can change the world. We can change someone’s circumstances through prayer. God wants to hear from us. Never give up hope.
God says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” Philippians 4:6-7
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” Job 5:9
Join me in prayer. Let’s storm heaven’s gate.
Dear Lord, Heavenly Father, pour down your blessings on Curt, Caroline, Dylan, Eric, Luke, family and friends. Give them hope and courage every day. Give them strength in their weakness and faith to drown out their fears. Comfort Curt in his pain. Bless him with healing, perseverance and strength to tolerate treatment, and bless him with quality of life. Bless them emotionally and spiritually. Strengthen their family, friends and caregivers. Lay your healing hand on Curt and remove every cancer cell.
Nothing is impossible with Your power, Lord. Bless the doctors and nurses.
We trust in You, Lord. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24

Frakes: Founding Fathers were 'politically incorrect'
To the Editor:
I know you’ve seen the TV footage of all the Confederate statues being taken down or demolished as “politically incorrect.” But did you ever think about which party was the “ruling party” when the statues were erected? I bet you could guess.
It’s obvious that they are reformed now, and more obviously “politically correct.” Certainly not hypocrites but “untouchables.”
It’s also obvious that our founding fathers were extremely “politically incorrect” and should be expunged from the record because they would have been incapable of being reformed, unlike those future politicians who are now “hollier than thou,” and certainly hollier than the founding fathers. With or without a mask.
