Prayer is the ultimate resource


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Harvey and Irma, two innocuous, commonplace names, yet names that in recent weeks have left death and destruction in their wake. The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, and by Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and in Florida and other parts of the southeastern United States are reminders of just how weak humans are in the face of the power of nature. Whether it’s a hurricane, a tornado, an earthquake, a blizzard, a flood, a drought, a tsunami or any other manifestation of nature at its most deadly, the human race despite all of its great technological advances is sitll no match for the forces deployed against it. The best we can is be prepared to get out of the way or take cover, and to mobilize the resources at our disposal to mitigate the damage and rebuild afterwards and, most importantly of all, to save lives. There is, however, one resource that human beings have that can help even more than our technology can and that’s prayer. Praying to God is a statement that we believe that God is real, is in control, and answers prayers and that we need Him and his strength, guidance, protection, and the salvation that He alone can provide. In praying to God we state clearly and for the record that we believe He is mightier than anything, including nature itself, and that He will comfort those who have suffered at the claws of nature and protect those who find themselves in its path. Praying to God is the ultimate resource of the human race in times both troubled and untroubled, and it is a resource each and everyone should never hestiate to turn to, whether it is to seek His help against the power of nature or, in our spirital lives, against the power of the devil.
