I don’t know if this is the region - but the Taliban posted this:

The 3/5 took over in Ramadi from the 2/5, my son’s battalion. We feel great brotherhood with the 3/5 guys. Please take time
to pray for them.

I checked all the news sources and have not heard about losing so many. The taliban did, but who would ever use them as a source?

I use globalsecurity.org, the DOD, and just found another interesting one

http://www.afghanistansun.com/

I am glad we all prayed because it was a nasty battle. Five marines who were wounded, kept fighting. So amazing.

We usually pray for our American Heroes every day under religion, if you would like to join us.

I got from a team mate that’s over there - first hand...but yes - I was trying to get more from the news sources and came across that one...yesterday the only thing you could hear about was [planes] coming in with packages - and the one being escorted in to JFK by F-15’s....

but you almost never hear about the boys fighting and loosing their lives - which is why I have a hatred for the media...

I was hoping it was from 2 weeks ago. I am a member of Marine Moms online, and we are notified when the DOD releases their names, but it takes a couple of days. We know it will get worse, and the Pakistan border is the leak in the dam.

Father God,

We know you as savior but we also know you as knowing all about war for you yourself fought a heavenly war. You know who are soldiers are up against and so we ask at this hour and those which follow to uphold them when strength seems to faulter, to take thier targets down when it means the life of one of ours, to dismantel the enemies schemes and confuse and confound their plans. Give our soldiers great courage in the very face of fear and when this ends may your name be high and lifted up for the vistory. In Christ’s name we ask this....amen.

PRAYERS GOING UP!




THE TWENTY THIRD PSALM

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."
