In these troublesome times, perhaps a word from Charles H. Spurgeon is in order. Spurgeon once said:
"Prayer pulls the rope down below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly; others give only an occasional jerk at the rope. But he who communicates with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously with all his might."
What powerful words from this great preacher of days gone by! As the old hymn says, "oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer."
As we are navigating these uncharted waters, keep pulling the rope!
"Pray without ceasing." (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
