December 3 - What others said

while not referencing 1 Peter 5, Rev. Todd Pepperkorn has another brilliant post encouraging us to cast all our anxieties upon the Lord, because He cares for us.  I most appreciated this quote:
What this collect (prayer) reminds me of so beautifully is that God’s protection rescues me from my sins. No matter how badly I have screwed up. No matter how much I have contributed to all of my own problems, God is there for me. We pray that God would stir up His power to rescue. And God loves to answer prayers more than anything else.
In case Todd Wilken orJeff Schwarz come across this post of mine (and somehow miss Rev. Pepperkorn's) - I know Lutheran Logomaniac doesn't have an Issues, etc. Widget.  But I do, and so you could consider bending the rules and awarding his post Blog of the Week through mine.
