This is a very cruel photo to send to someone in Arizona....

Yes, Walter, I should have gotten contact info for the parents. Next time I will! The photo was taken walking towards the boy, clicking away at waist level, hoping the auto-focusing on my camera worked. It did! The prayer is a mish-mash of four stories from the Bible: Jesus offering living water to the woman at the well (John 4), Elisha telling the Syrian captain Naaman to wash away his leprosy in a river (2 Kings 5), the woman touching Jesus’s cloak to be healed (Luke 8:43-48), and the centurion who has faith that Jesus simply needs to say the word, even at a distance, and his servant will be healed (Matthew 8:5-13). I keep trying to keep my prayers simple, but then many ideas fill my head!
