Pray for the release of Captain Phillips

I have a new hero.

U.S. Warship Arrives as Pirates' Options Dwindle

The crew of the USS Bainbridge fought pirates, and their captain, Richard Phillips, offered himself to the pirates as a hostage to save his ship and crew. He and the pirates are floating in a small boat, out of fuel. The shipping company is offering a $10 million ransom for his safe release. (And we can't afford a couple hundred thousand to take care of a sick baby in the NICU, but I digress....)

Prayers for this brave captain, his family, and everybody working (and fighting) to get him safely home again.
