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. (AP) - Energy industry officials are applauding a judge's decision to allow the Dakota Access pipeline to continue operating while more environmental assessment is done on its impact on the Standing Rock Sioux. An attorney for the Standing Rock Sioux says the decision is "disappointing."
 
     The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving oil from North Dakota to Illinois in June, but Judge James Boasberg ruled that month more assessment is needed on the project's impact on the tribe. He ruled today the pipeline can continue operating in the meantime.
 
     Attorney Jan Hasselman says Boasberg's earlier ruling made it clear the tribe wasn't properly considered when the pipeline was permitted. He says it shouldn't be allowed to continue operating while more study is done. Hasselman says Boasberg's ruling isn't appealable. But the tribe and three others are still trying to shut down the pipeline through an ongoing federal lawsuit.
 
     The pipeline is moving nearly half of the daily oil production in North Dakota, the nation's second-leading producer. State Petroleum Council President Ron Ness says it's "a critical part of American energy infrastructure."
 
     Grow America's Infrastructure Now spokesman Craig Stevens says the pro-pipeline coalition of businesses, trade associations and labor groups is "heartened that we are one step closer to finality."
 
    North Dakota officials say the Dakota Access oil pipeline has boosted the state's tax revenues by $18 million in its first three months of operation. North Dakota Pipeline Authority director Justin Kringstad tells the Bismarck Tribune that producers have seen a $2 increase per barrel in the average price for Bakken crude in June, July and August, compared to 2016. Kringstad attributes the increase to more competitive transportation costs.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil production rose slightly in August and remained above 1 million barrels per day for the seventh consecutive month. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.08 million barrels of oil daily in August. That's up from 1.04 million barrels in July. North Dakota also produced 1.94 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in August, up from 1.89 billion cubic feet daily in July.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Officials in Missouri and the Canadian province of Manitoba are appealing a federal judge's decision that would bring Missouri River water to residents of northwestern North Dakota. Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem called the appeal filed Tuesday a "disappointment." He says specific legal issues being appealed have not been disclosed. Judge Rosemary Collyer in August ruled that the $244 million Northwest Area Water Supply project complies with federal environmental law.
 
     NAWS was first authorized by Congress 31 years ago but has been tied up in the courts because the state of Missouri and the Canadian province of Manitoba have concerns about water quality and water depletion.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The division commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers held a closed-door meeting with members of the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Authority and elected officials to talk about the stalled flood control project.
 
     Maj. Gen. Richard Kaiser's visit to Fargo today came after a federal judge stopped work on the Red River diversion until it gets the necessary permits from Minnesota. Kaiser said afterward that the corps can modify the design of the $2.2 billion project, but wouldn't be specific.
 
     North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum said the meeting was private because of discussions about "legal next steps." Upstream residents have filed a lawsuit to stop construction and say they have been excluded from project discussions.
 
     Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr were invited but did not attend.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have dropped a theft charge against one of three Minot nurses accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients in a hospice program. The charge against 40-year-old Jennifer Napora was dropped Oct. 3. The reason isn't clear. Charges of theft, conspiracy and endangering a vulnerable adult are still pending against the other two nurses. They're due in court Dec. 14.
