Pray continually

In a 24-7 news cycle, one can easily suffer from a fatigue of constant communication and stories on floods, disasters, dying, and various other torments . . . including frenzied fear. The story of this “Light on a Hill” on the part of Pastor Tursic and the shining light of hope in hopelessness can be a great vision for each and all of us. It really is a rejuvenating hope, for Jesus Christ was also on His knees in Gethsemane, and our church on its knees, even in this day of nuclear saber rattling, knows deep down, even in the weakness of weak faith, that our Lord will never forsake us (Hebrews 13), as we kneel for intercessory rescue, cry for comfort and consolation, even in the darkening days of despair and a culture of death where thousands die each day of disease and hunger. Sometimes, we can see the good news of the Gospel in a clearer light while on our knees.
