For the souls of these poor people, let us pray.
For Jim, Lair, Alex, and all the folks in my company's Houston and College Station offices, along with their families and beloved pets.
For New Orleans, which is flooding again.
For the grandson of my office manager, who was born quite premature and seems to be failing to thrive, and for his mother, who is frantic with fear.
For all of these and more, let us pray.
