Had to post this... Please Pray or send Good thoughts

If you don't pray...atleast please think of these people during your afternoon.
Major Setback in Utah Mine Rescue Effort (click link for article)

Rescue efforts for the six trapped miners has been halted for a week. Even if the miners survived the collapse, it's hard to believe that they will survive the week with out air, food or water.
Pray for those rescue teams that had to make the decision to hault the effort due to dangerous conditions.
Pray for the families that await the return of their miners, husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles and sons.
Pray for the miners, hoping they will find peace and that somehow the strength to make it through this ordeal alive.

It is a truly sad situation that makes it hard for me to even comprehend. Words can't express how much I 'feel' for all those involved.

I heard the devastating news last night. And, my prayers are with the trapped miners, their loved ones and the rescue workers. I hope it doesn't take a week before they can continue with their rescue efforts, that they have air and water down there, and are alive and not seriously injured. People can live up to 30 days without food if they have water. So, I'm hoping.

It's really horrible, I can't imagine what they're going through.

We had similar case where two miners were trapped in a mine in Tasmania last year, and they were both rescued after 14 days. If that gives any glimmer of hope.
