It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. The subject this morning at Hometown Friends Church is prayer. Even without looking ahead to the sermon title, sometimes the songs make the topic obvious. I’m looking at five people up front in the folk ensemble. One recently experienced an amazing prayer outcome. His wife’s cancer prognosis took an unexplainable turn for the better. It must be getting close to 20 years ago that a lot of “fervent, righteous” prayer was focused on the wife of another member of the ensemble. Her death is on the list of unanswered questions about prayer. Another one of the up front musicians, along with the woman who was then his wife, got a lot of prayer directed at their situation several years ago when the marriage was crumbling and then totally fell apart. So, we are still in the same place as the disciples in Luke chapter eleven: “Lord, teach us to pray.”
