“For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men. (Lamentations 3:31-33)

This week we look to God and bring to Him our thought and Prayers for comfort and peace to those who have lost loved ones and friends.

“Post 32 in Walla Walla lost 2 members in August:

Calvin O’Dell, Vietnam War veteran, Air Force

Bill Lake, WWII veteran, Navy”

Ronald E. Haas, U.S. Marine Reserve Veteran, brother of Larry Haas, Post 122, lost his battle with Congestive Heart Failure and Dementia on 9/14/2023, at the age of 81.

“I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. Where, O death are your plagues? Where, O grave, is your destruction? “I will have no compassion.” (Hosea 13:14)

 But then: “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Dear Lord God, creator of all that is and ever will be, God of the living and of the dead, we come to You beseeching You of Your peace and comfort for those families and friends who have lost loved ones.  Be with them in their times of grief knowing that You are with them. In this we ask in Your Holy Name. Amen.

For this week we go to our creator for improved health and healing of unnamed friends and family of Post 25, Kelso, and those of Barbara Lombrano. Even though we don’t know who they are, God our creator does. I would also like to personally ask for your thoughts and Prayers for my brother, Ron, a Marine Veteran. Sadly, his Congestive Heart Failure and Dementia are getting the better of him and even with his valiant battle, he is expected to leave us, as God decides, within the next couple of weeks. Being unable to eat or drink and sleeping more, his time is getting shorter with each passing day.

I also want to add that especially with your loved ones and friends, do not miss any opportunity to tell them how much they mean you and that they are important to you. To “BEtheONE”, can mean more than you’ll ever know to that ONE. An opportunity missed is an opportunity LOST.

Dear God, we come to You with heavy hearts for those of our brothers, sisters, and family who are ill and facing very difficult times. We ask for your healing power to with those in need and grant Your comfort us all. We know that our time of this earth is but a fleeting moment in your eyes, but yet You know the count of our hairs. Also, let us never forget to let those around us that they are important to us and that we care about them. We humbly ask for Your mercy and grace, as it Your will. In your Holy Name. Amen.

Week Ending August 25, 2023

Pray for safe travel for those traveling to the National Convention.

Continue to pray for all those who have been affected by the various wildfires.

Please pray for Chaplain Larry's brother Ron (USMC Veteran) who is continuing fighting physical medical problems, plus now facing serious Dementia challenges. Prayers for him and family.

I also ask that we all consider all of our brothers and sisters of the American Legion who, maybe be known only by God, that are suffering from various ailments and challenges that are in need. From coast-to-coast, Hawaii and Alaska, and around the world, may God be with them and grant them comfort, peace, and healing. We also ask for safe travels to/from the National Convention, and that He be with them all for a successful and rewarding gathering. We also want to remember those in uniform standing by and fighting for peace and the rights and freedoms of all mankind.

"For God and Country". Amen."

Prayers for Hawaii!

My fellow Legionnaires, I'm sure you have all heard about the devastating fires on the Maui that has taken so many lives and homes. As it says in Lamentations 3:31-33 "For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men.", God will be with them. Also, remember those in the NW upon the coming Heat Wave.

Dear Lord God, we humbly beseech You to bring Your compassion and help to all those in peril from the horrible fires on Maui. Grant Your mercy to those who have died and strength to the living. Be with them as they fight to understand what has happened and hope that transgresses all understanding. Be with those in the NW and across our country experiencing extreme high temperatures, forest fires, and devastating weather. In Your Holy Name. Amen.
