i first want to state that i am proud to be a part of a forum that has a section that is designated to CHRISTians and pryer. it has become entierly to unpopular to be a christian in this countery. i personaly feel closer to god when i am in the woods, than i have ever felt in any church, and pry more aswell. (and not just for a sucsessfull hunt) i am sorry that i missed the opritunity to pry for your father, as well as the opritunity to have others pry for mine, as he has had 2 unsucsessfull knee surgerys in the last few months. i truely feel that pryer helps as my mom sent out menny pryer request for him about a year ago when he had throught canser. thanks to gods grace and skilled docs, my dad is cancer free.
