"Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you"
-- Matthew 5:44

The inquest just finished this morning. It has been a big media circus -- radio stations started the publicity this morning, and there were tons of reporters and cameras at the courthouse.

Fortunately, our lawyers recommended that Judy, Heather and I not be there, so we didn't have to talk to the media.

The coroner recommended to the district attorney that he press charges of homicide against Judy. The district attorney doesn't have to take that recommendation, but usually he follows the advice of the coroner. The whole process is highly political, so it is hard to know what will happen.

I was struck today by an article in the Voice of the Martyrs today where persecuted Christians in Muslim countries were praying for their captors and persecutors. So, I had a different prayer this morning -- not just that Carol Mills McCarthy (the judge) would make the right decision, but that she, Ed Borkowski (assistant district attorney), and Cyril Wecht (the coroner), would be blessed in their job, in their families, in their lives.

Prayer requests:
Please pray for Judy for strength to endure through what will most likely be a long and drawn out time.
Also pray for Judy's finances, as trials are really expensive, probably fifty to a hundred thousand dollars, which is hard to imagine.
Continued prayers for us to trust God's guidance in our lives, and for our faith as we seek Him.
