My prayers for  today are:

That the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael open the eyes of those in the middle east and bring peace to all the region.

And secondly that Ray Rice, NFL Ravens running back, John Harbaugh, Ravens coach, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, and Stephen Smith, ESPN sports announcer have a change in their hearts and learn that violence toward anyone, women especially is not acceptable and should never be tolerated under any conditions.  AMEN
