This is the water tower where I live:

It kind of looks like a space ship up close.  Having just visited Joplin one of my thoughts is that it would make a great tornado shelter–the cement is two feet thick all the way around.

Having been inspired to pray for the healing of Joplin, I decided to pray for the city where I live (as I couldn’t find any of the walking wounded to pray for directly).  This city desperately needs Jesus.  There’s more crime per capita than the national average.  I’m almost numb to the fact when I hear of another shooting or another robbery, mainly I think because they haven’t happened to me (I pray). 

May God heal this city.  It’s wound is gaping and it needs the healing.  So I place my feet on it and ask for it.
