The 700 Club Prayer Line

Yesterday morning I joined in a Facebook campaign to call the 700 Club Prayer Line about Pat Robertson's disgusting remarks about Haiti.

The woman who answered was clearly, to me,  a genuine person of faith and of deep sentiment. 

I told her that I wanted prayer for Pat Robertson because of his disgusting remarks.  I went on to talk about how a real follower of Christ would not say such a thing, about the tens of thousands dead, about the Cathedral collapsing on the archbishop, and a theological point that tragedies like this do not target people for their faith or lack thereof.

She expressed emotion toward me, and though she did not agree with me, she did not argue or try to redirect the conversation.

She then led me in prayer, praying for Haiti and for Pat Robertson to have discernment in his choice of words.  I was impressed.

And when I got off the phone, I realized that I had actually had a surprising spiritual moment on the 700 Club prayer line.  I had called angry and with a genuine concern, and entering into complete prayer with this stranger who could have been put off or on the defensive by my words, had removed my anger and made me feel as if I had done my part, that I was heard, found fellow feeling in another human, and that we had gone together to God in prayer.

I did not expect this result.

Please pray our family and friends follow Jesus and that we get our dog back that has been gone for 6 months now. She used to lie against our girl when she was sick and would take naps with her. She is missed very much by our family. We had her for 5 years and she is mostly white with a large tan circle on her back and light tan spots on her ears
