Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest preached on Thoughts and Prayers based on scriptures Acts 12:1-10 and Acts 12:11-17.

Thoughts and prayers.  Three words we hear more and more often these days in the aftermath of tragedy.  Three words that have become so familiar that I have begun hearing the rebuttal angrily spoken - 'We need more than thoughts and prayers!'  That rebuttal gives me pause - what do we mean by 'thoughts and prayers'? 

Why do those three words make people so angry?  What are they looking for?  What is God looking for?
