Timely Words from Joni

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is from Proverbs 15:23, "A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!"

911 – An Urgent Call to Pray for Jerusalem

At any given time, I have number of friends and loved ones on my mind.  These days, there are two individuals utmost in my thoughts -- one I've known for years who has served in Christian radio in the midst of treatment for pancreatic cancer and a little girl I've never met whose cancer journey has hit a deep valley.  My heart is burdened to pray for both daily.
