Everyday thousands of children are being sexually abused. You can stop the abuse of at least one child by simply praying. You can possibly stop the abuse of thousands of children by forwarding the link in First Time Visitor? by email, Twitter or Facebook to every Christian you know. Save a child or lots of children!!!! Do Something, please!

3:15 PM prayer in brief:
Pray for God to stop 1 child from being molested today.
Pray for God to stop 1 child molestation happening now.
Pray for God to rescue 1 child from sexual slavery.
Pray for God to save 1 girl from genital circumcision.
Pray for God to stop 1 girl from becoming a child-bride.
If you have the faith pray for 100 children rather than one.
Give Thanks. There is more to this prayer here

2 Arrested for Torture, Child Sex Abuse

Two men have been arrested in separate incidents in Madison County, Alabama and charged with child abuse and sexual abuse of a child.

Amondre Jamaul Epps, 26, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with first-degree sex abuse. According to the Madison County Sheriff's Office, Epps was arrested following a complaint that he'd had sexual contact with a child.

The child, whose age was not given, is not related to the suspect. Epps is being held in the Madison County jail in lieu of $30,000 bond.

In the second case, Melvin Charles Jarrett, 48, is charged with torture/willful abuse of a child. Jarrett's arrest on Wednesday follows the investigation into a domestic violence incident in which a child in his family suffered physical injuries. 

The nature of those injuries was not disclosed.

Curious. I've done 3 stories in the past year from Madison County, and 20 from Alabama. Are they just better at reporting these things, or is something else going on?
