I got a kind email in response to yesterday's post about Wounded Knee. It included this news and prayer request:
"We're having a New Years Day celebration at the church, where we'll pass out the gifts and treats for the children. (Note: Christmas events were postponed due to the blizzard). In Pine Ridge it was declared a state of emergency, so lots of people are still snowed in. Unfortunately, some don't have propane for heat due to the impassable roads. Please remember them in your prayers."
Please pray for the people who are cut off from services and support. The snow has stopped but the temps are very low. I am sure that the same conditions are present on other Reservations and in rural areas. Even in the city, some new housing tracts and apartment complexes have had to wait for public services or management to dig out streets and parking lots. But at least here we have abundant heat.
So please do call upon God for the folks who are isolated under harsh conditions.
