God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff until sunset Thursday, Nov. 9, and encouraged North Dakotans to do the same at their homes and businesses, as a mark of respect for the victims of Sunday's shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The governor's directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Donald Trump.

    "Kathryn and I are deeply appalled and saddened by the unspeakable act of tragic violence in Sutherland Springs, Texas. We offer our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the grieving families of the deceased and wounded and extend our deepest gratitude to all those who responded to assist the victims," Gov. Burgum said. "Targeting church parishioners during worship service is an especially heinous and cowardly act. Our nation was founded on the right to worship free from fear, and we should unite to ensure that the bonds of community and security among all who exercise this right remain unbroken."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Records show that the closure of the only men's homeless shelter in Bismarck followed financial management problems at Ruth Meiers Hospitality House. The Bismarck Tribune reports the problems included a debt of more than $200,000 in back taxes, wage claims from employees and a loss of funding sources.

    Board President Rae Ann Kelsch says the shelter was losing the nonprofit organization more than $125,000 annually. Former Ruth Meiers Hospitality House Executive Director Jaclyn Hall submitted a letter of resignation in April. Kelsch said it included requests that the board decided it could not meet, and Hall was relieved of her duties. Kelsch calls it a mutual decision. Hall declined comment.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The number of North Dakotans using food stamps to buy groceries is dropping, even as the state's oil-driven economy has slowed and the population remains at an all-time high. Data show an average of 53,748 people used food stamps monthly in fiscal 2017. That's down about 500 people from fiscal 2016. The federal fiscal year ends in September.
 
     North Dakotans enrolled in the program received an average of about $122 monthly in 2016 and 2017. A family of four in North Dakota can apply for food stamp aid with a gross income of less than $2,665 per month.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drivers in North Dakota are paying an average of 26 cents more for a gallon of gas than a year ago. The AAA says the statewide average price is currently $2.48. Rising oil prices are inflating pump prices, which typically have dropped when school starts at the end of summer and families aren't vacationing. AAA says demand for gas is expected to drop as winter sets in. Average gas prices are highest in the Bismarck metro area at $2.52, then Grand Forks metro at $2.51 and Fargo at $2.33.
