Prayer: A Ruin, Ruin, Ruin

I confess that several things have caught my attention these past few days:
  • A Port of Newport engineer announcing the price of steel went up 27% last quarter and is expected to go up 20% next quarter.
  • A local bread maker announcing that she will no longer sell through retail outlets but only through the farmer's market because the price of wheat is so high.
  • Government intervention into Wall Street.
  • Zimbabwe's election mess.

Then my readings for today:

Things shall not remain as they are...a ruin, ruin, ruin I will make it...Ezekiel 21.26-27

...and if the Lord had no cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days. Mark 13.20

Lord, have mercy...
