Help when you're in trouble

When an emergency strikes, most of us think of getting help—fast. But what if you can't reach anyone in an emergency situation? What if, as was the case in South Florida some months ago when hurricane Andrew hit, the phones and the emergency services are all shut down? What if you can't even get a call through to ask someone to pray for you?

In a desperate situation like that, you can do what millions of South Floridians did. You can call on God to help you. When I visited Miami a few days after the hurricane, I learned that many people prayed during the storm. Even atheists huddled in their closets or bathrooms and reached out to a power beyond themselves.
