THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done.
As the Ebola virus ravaged West Africa in 2014, Dr. Rick Sacra was on the front lines working with SIM, an International Christian missions organization, a hospital in Monnovia, Liberia. When he contracted the disease himself, the horror and suffering fell on him like an anvil. Lying there alone, fevered, convulsing, apparently dying, one set of thoughts flooded his mind. "I tell you I hung on to the Lord's Prayer like a drowning man," he later told a journalist. "I prayed through that prayer many times a day and just wept through it most of the time."
Currently it appears that Ebola virus epidemic is under control, but there are other afflictions we may encounter. Life is full of trouble. Jesus warned us that in this world we'll face tribulation (John 16:33). But He also gave us a prayer, "Thy kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Through prayer and trust, God enables us to stand strong in the midst of our greatest trials.
