Prayers please

My grandfather was a Norwegian immigrant. He came to this country on April 3, 1906. He adopted this country fully, fighting in the U.S. Army in WW I. And he rarely let a day go by when he wouldn't sing for us, in Norwegian, Ja, vi elsker dette landet, the Norwegian national anthem - which he loosely translated as "Yes we love this land with fond devotion".

Embedding from YouTube has been disabled, but maybe this link will get you there. This is for my Grandpa (bestefar) and the people of Norway, at this time of grief, terror, and need.

God bless Norway and keep her and her people in loving care.
