Prayer Vigil for the Victims

15 03 2013

I was asked to spread the word about a Prayer Vigil that will be held for the 6 teen victims of that terrible roll-over car crash that took their lives. It will be held at Courthouse Square in Warren at 6pm this Saturday (March 16th). Prayer is the community’s choice as the means of comfort and the avenue in finding hope. There have been prayer meetings at churches, quite a few at the site of the accident, and nearly everywhere people gather. I was at a Gideon’s function last night and we had a season of prayer afterwards.

I have prayed the prayers of Charles Spurgeon as part of my morning devotion. They are quite warm , personal, and enriching. Today I was able to glean this insight on prayer that is so fitting at such a time.

“We have found a little heaven in prayer. It has eased our load to tell Thee of its weight; it has relieved our wound to tell Thee of its smart; it has restored our spirit to confess to Thee its wanderings. No place like the mercy seat for us.

“We thank Thee, Lord, that we have not only found benefit in prayer, but in the answers to it we have been greatly enriched. Thou hast opened Thy hid treasures to the voice of prayer; Thou hast supplied our necessities as soon as ever we have cried unto Thee; yea, we have found it true: “Before they call I will answer, and while they are yet speaking I will hear.”

“We do bless Thee, Lord, for instituting the blessed ordinance of prayer. What could we do without it, and we take great shame to ourselves that we should use it so little. We pray that we may be men of prayer, taken up with it, that it may take us up and bear us as on its wings towards heaven.”
C.H. Spurgeon’s Prayers.

May you find in prayer, “a little haven”. May God grant
you a sense of comfort and a respite of relief.
