As I am writing this I am currently watching and hearing about the devastation that Hurricane Sandy is currently bringing to many people on the East Coast. Such disasters make people start to think about what is really important in life. Thanks to the women of the Girl Talk blog, I discovered a very insightful quote from Dr. Albert Mohler that I would like to share. He states,
“Perhaps we should pray as Jesus taught us, praying that the Father’s will would be done, that all persons would be spared harm, and that Christians would respond in the aftermath of disaster with a clear Christian witness of care, assistance, and witness. We should pray that any ‘natural’ disaster would be an opportunity for Christian witness to the supernatural Gospel, and for Christian reflection on the beauty of the Savior.”
I could not have said it any better. That is my prayer for today and this week as millions of people try to recover from this tragedy. I hope you will make it your prayer as well and get involved where you can to offer assistance to those who are suffering from this.
