When the lights go out, pray for power

Fortunately for us, we did not lose electricity during the freak storm. Yet I was saddened by the response of many of those who did lose electricity.

Nobody and no company is prepared for all unexpected emergencies. The responses of those who lost electricity were understandable but off track. How many of them would have been willing to work from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. wearing protective gear in sweltering heat while handling live wires that could kill them in seconds?

Had the customers called upon their spiritual resources and prayed and praised continually with grateful hearts, perhaps good things would have happened sooner. If prayer, praise and singing could free St. Peter and others from the bonds of prison and open the jail house door, it might also get electricity restored in no time.
