Signs Of Relief?

According to newspaper reports, some of the long-term factors that have pushed oil prices to record levels are starting to change!!! The "experts" say it's because demand for fuel in the US is falling for the first time in 17 years. Because China is raising prices for gasoline and diesel – a move that might ultimately lower demand. And because last Sunday, Saudi Arabia's oil minister indicated that the country would increase production through the end of the year. But couldn't it also be because we prayed? 1 John 5:14 says this: "And we can be confident that He will listen to us whenever we ask Him for anything in line with His will."

As we Christians become better stewards of God's great earth, consuming less fuel, maybe the 13% of Ohioans in poverty will also be able to buy bread. Aren't you glad God is good even when we aren't?!! Click the pic to read more. Photo courtesy: Jim Young/Reuters.
