How Does It Work?

A story is told about a young soldier who was fighting on the front line in Europe during World War II. He jumped into a foxhole to avoid the bullets that were whizzing over his head. Wishing the foxhole were deeper, he started exploring his hiding place and found a silver cross that someone had left behind. A moment later another U.S. soldier leaped into the foxhole beside him. The young soldier soon recognized that his new companion was an army chaplain. Holding out the cross, the soldier exclaimed, “Am I glad to see you! How do you work this thing?”

It’s a shame that it often takes a crisis to cause us to want to pray.

“Pray continually.”—1 Thess.5:17.
