'God Thing' Our country should not be surprised at the recent downturn of the nation's economy, according to Pastor Timothy Jones of the Lighthouse Church of Laurel. According to Second Chronicles, God promises to heal a nation if we humble ourselves, pray and turn from what we as a nation have been doing. Pastor Jones is calling upon Delmarva's churches to participate in 40 days of prayer and supplication ending Nov. 23, to ask for God's Divine Intervention, God's wisdom and as a call for repentance. Pastor Jones is preparing to present a program designed to help people get out of debt, to help people achieve practical methods of living within one's means, and finally achieve financial freedom. The doors of The Lighthouse Church will be open during certain hours of the day and evening so that anyone can come and pray.
