  • It was one of the post-Irma, pre-power-turned-back-on days and my husband and I were at a local restaurant for dinner.
    A man sitting next to us recognized me as “the lady from the newspaper,” and we started talking about the hurricane we had just survived and how God had spared us.
    The man confessed that he wasn’t a regular churchgoer, maybe went four or five times a year, but he was for sure going to go to church that Sunday.
    “God answered the prayers of people who prayed,” he said.

    When God called Abraham to pray for Sodom and Gomorrah, recorded in Genesis 18, what was at stake? The salvation of the entire communities.
    When God sent Jonah to preach in Nineveh what were the stakes? The salvation of the entire community.
    When Ezra prayed for safe travel, recorded in Ezra 8, where was God sending him? God was sending Ezra to rebuild the religious activity and commitment of the city of Jerusalem.
