Dear President Trump.  My hunch is if your friends or your family were injured and possibly dying, you would move heaven and earth to help them.  Emotions would run high.  Personally, I would be frustrated and quite angry if help were available and was denied or slow in coming.  My prayer for us this evening is for mercy.  Mercy for us as we deal with the people of Puerto Rico.  Patience and understanding, not anger and blame, when those who are suffering lash out in their pain.  Mercy and compassion and action for others when we can help.  May God grant us the love and strength to help others, not condemn them.
