Please pray for Ruff P. He is one of my members and is in the One Sheep Program. He was violently attacked yesterday. Out of the many, many stab wounds, not one single one hit a vital organ. The only three wounds that did any significant damage was where they cut his throat, and two stab wounds to his knee that cut the tendon responsible for straightening out his leg. They stitched up his throat and the orthopedic surgeon was able to repair the tendon. He is going to make it. To God be the glory. Please continue to pray for Ruff and his wife during their recovery. Also pray that this action does not mean violent backlashes in the neighborhood. The main drug dealer in the 'hood had put a "no touch" order on them because they are trying to get their lives straightened out (his daughter is in our youth group). Someone violated that order and that can result in DEADLY consequences. I am also sure that the men that did this are abundantly aware that I was behind the "no touch" order. Pray that God will bring JUSTICE to the men who did this, FORGIVENESS to the ones affected by this, and PEACE to those who would seek retribution. ...and if you have time, pray that God will keep me safe as I go out into that neighborhood tonight. This is the same neighborhood that I was attacked by a gang member in last week.
