Deal with Jim Holmes so that he is not only corrected and dealt with in a just way but that he finds you in this. May he call out to you and ask you to forgive him and to turn his life around. Bring him the mental, emotional, and spiritual help that he needs. Help him to understand the pain he has caused others.

I ask God, that you will be a shield of protection to all who put their trust in you. For those who fear going to the movies, or stepping out into the marketplace, or going out into public, I declare that they will hide in the safety of your wings. Cause a trusting security blanket to cover those who call out to you. You will surround them like a shield and they will sleep in peace.

Amen

In His Grip,

Dr. Linda
