"HOW SHALL WE THEN LIVE?" Francis Schaeffer

Friday, September 02, 2005


Here in Florida, gas supplies have begun to tighten up. Regular gas is not available; the price is $3.00 or more. Nobody is complaining because price is less of a problem than lack of gas supplies.

I'm scheduled to fly to Sacramento next week on Northwest Airlines. At this time I don't see it happening. A) Will Northwest even be in the air next week? B) What are the chances I could get stranded away from my family. C) My anxiety about things is clearly elevated. D) I don't want to take 4 days off of work at this time.

GOD, as I've noted before, is in control; we are not. I think a most appropriate response to the burgeoning crisis is: PRAY

If you do not regularly meet with a group of individuals striving to know and worship the creator God -- now would be a good time to start.

I'm very partial to places that emphasize the ancient Scriptures; the BIBLE. Its trackrecord is incomparable. People who attempt to follow the teaching of Scripture prosper. Those who ignore them end up living difficult and painful lives.


A good prayer template is the followings:


A = Adoration. Praising and worshipping the God who is worthy of praise
C = Contrition. Admitting that we have sinned, we have ignored God.
T = Thanksgiving. We have Sooo Much to be thankful for: We had best remember that
S = Supplication. Here's where our needs and our neighbors needs are remembered.

I encourage you; be in a good church this weekend, pray for America's transformation.
