If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) recently, you'll be aware that I discussed how Mike Spencer, and injured/disabled worker, was treated. If you haven't read lately, you may want to read this week's entries.
Is Mike Spencer alone?
He may be a single person, living in poverty... but, he is not alone. God is with him.
Just as He is, with others.
On Facebook (FB), I found postings regarding the suffering of injured workers. I decided to share the links. Not just on FB, but also here on LwL.
Here is a link by CBC.ca with an article and video entitled, Paul Davis says staff alerted police to perceived threat prior to shooting: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/paul-davis-says-staff-alerted-police-to-perceived-threat-prior-to-shooting-1.3022103.
If you read and listened/watched the video, you'll be aware that Don Dunphy was shot and killed. He was murdered by police, in Mitchells Brook, Newfoundland.
What happened to cause his murder? He spoke up.
Don Dunphy spoke up, regarding about how badly he believed he was being treated, as an injured worker.
Whether or not he even posted those remarks that he was accused of posting on internet media places, no one truly knows.
One thing is for sure. Don Dunphy suffered. He suffered, as an injured worker.
Much like almost all injured workers do. Suffer, I mean.
Kevin Jones speaks up. For this, I am grateful, for I believe that there are not enough people speaking up these days, regarding injured workers.
Here is a posting made by Kevin Jones. The posting's title is Kevin Jones Advocate for Ontario Workers, on the blog... First Responder and PTSD by Paul Murphy, who is the blogger: http://ptsdsupport22.blogspot.ca/2015/03/kevin-jones-advocate-for-ontario-workers.html.
Many injured workers suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)... including me. And, in other ways.
Here is a link entitled, Can an Injured Worker Survive?: http://ciws.byethost4.com/.
Hopefully, you took a look at that page. If you didn't you won't be aware about how an injured worker who has obviously suffered, is living.
For sure, I believe we need to pray for injured/disabled workers. And, injured/disabled workers need to pray for others.
Just as we read, in James 5:16, "Confess your faults one to
another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual
fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
Yes, we need to confess our faults to one another. We need to pray for each other, so we may be healed, by caring for others... for, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Does this mean that non-Christians should pray?
They can, if they want to.
Will they be heard by God? He admitted to us that he doesn't need to hear their prayer.
But, we... who are His children need to pray. For our prayer, being made righteous by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, availeth much!
So, my friend... please come to Christ, if you haven't yet. You will be blessed eternally, if you do.
Until next time...
