Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Praying For “Situational Awareness”

Yesterday a Northwest Airlines A320 flying from San Diego to Minneapolis with more than 100 passengers on board overflew the runway – by 150 miles! According to the first official reports the pilots “lost situational awareness.” I’ll say. Rumors are flying explaining the lapse as everything from a heated argument that distracted them to the more likely explanation that both pilot and co-pilot took a long winter’s nap. Whatever the reasons, the fact remains a spooky situation.

Truth is, I’ve had experience losing “situational awareness.” The world is complicated and I’ve both argued and slept my way through my own assigned responsibilities. When I’m weary or irritable or both or more I’m prone to zone out and fly right by my target. This is why in days of stress and tension I MUST walk in a zone of prayer. God, my true auto-pilot can keep me and get them where I need to be!

“God, keep me focused today on the things that need my attention. Keep me in a state of peace and alert awareness. And then you take care of the rest!”

    Eleven years ago I was a street-hard junkie. I injected cocaine and heroin on a daily basis and many times a day if I had the cash. I even sold my land and I made $13000.00. In six weeks it was gone. Two strangers pick me up and they stole my last $2500.00 and on my 42nd birthday they beat me to death. But, God informed me I still had work to do on earth, and I awoke. I laid very still, breathing very shallow, and I began to pray to God that I would be able to undo three locks and get outside where I could scream for help. And to my surprise, even though I’d been messing with the devil (drugs), God interviened and rescued me one more time. Today, I am clean. Today, I am an Adult Class Sunday School Teacher for St. Peter’s By the Sea United Methodist Church, in the Flour Bluff area or Corpus Christi, TX. Now today my life is wonderful. I am learning to give my praise to God and to do His will for me. My will always gets me into trouble so I am thrilled to do God’s will for me everyday! PRAISE TO GOD, THE FATHER, JESUS, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE HOLY TRINITY!
