This is one of those times when I don’t have words to do it justice. Jill Carroll is the reporter who was kidnapped a couple of weeks ago. I found out about blogging our support for her release through Balls and Walnuts, who got it from Blue Gal.
If you pray, please pray for her safe release.
One thing that is pretty impressive, and probably under-reported is the amount of Muslim support for her release. Jill has written numerous articles about the effect of the war on Iraqi citizens. They give a picture of the humanity of the Iraqi people that is all to easy to forget.
Updates on Jill Carroll are here.
Please, please take the time to follow these links. My heart breaks to see someone’s child in danger, even adult children. I wish I could do more. A few words on a blog and prayers for her safe return feel so insignificant, but it’s all I have to offer.
I hope that God is giving Jill and her family a sense of peace, and some knowledge of the outcry for her release.
Bring her back to us unharmed, Father.
