Listening to the news, this morning, about the rescue in Chile it amazes me how no one in the mainstream news can pinpoint the Truth of how those 33 men survived 69 days at more than 2000 feet below ground. All the analysts and pundants go on and on about their daily routine to stay mentally and physically fit. They focus on details like, “they knew what time it was because they had cell phones” and they ignore the one item they barely mention at all, the time they took to pray. One of the miners, the 9th one rescued, became their spiritual leader. they sent for a crucifix, rosaries and statues Mary and saints. When he came out he kneeled down in prayers to thank God. His wife of more than 20 years is planning a church wedding because their first one was a civil ceremony, to thank God. In a Spanish country where most are catholic, the prayers of the miners, their families, their countrymen and all of us watching 24 hour covereage on cable news, how can anyone ignore the fact that prayer is the answer. Honest to goodness faith, love and prayer saved these people. The “experts” watch the the men smiling and celebrating and still predict an awful outcome in the future where they will “undoubtedly” have nightmares and severe depression or debilitating desease. Some of the men are sick and very weak. Some will suffer, some may never go back to the mines but love and faith will not abandon them, now. Psychologists will study them for the next 10 or 20 years. I hope their is a seminary student out there somewhere that will follow them also and study the amazing grace that is the faith that illuminated 69 days of the darkest hours of those miners lives.

I am not sure how it happens when I think I cannot believe more than I already do… the wonder and awe I find in Jesus, still grows exponentially.
