days of prayer: update

Dan Shoemaker sent an e-mail out earlier with some great information regarding these days of prayer I mentioned earlier.  His e-mail was actually a portion of an e-mail from someone he knows here in Haiti but its got some excellent details that I want to pass along.

“Today, tomorrow, and Sunday have been declared a time of prayer and fasting.  Carnival, which is scheduled for Tues has been cancelled.  The first time ever as far as I know.  This morning, I noticed most people not on the roads, but in churches (if they are still standing) or at home in prayer….Today will be a day of repentance, asking God to forgive, Saturday will be a day to pray for the country and the government, and Sunday will be a day of thanking God for His mercy and grace and love.”
