The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16b (KJV)

When US Airways flight 1549 went down on the Hudson River this afternoon in New York, the prayers of the righteous were activated. As people in my office, myself included, gathered around computers to watch the live video of the rescue, there were saints praying. While I speculated and wondered how the passengers were doing, there were saints praying. Before the plane even took off from LaGuardia, there were saints praying. When the plane was simply afloat in the water—miraculously they say—there were saints praying. When I went to send up my own prayer for the passengers, crew and rescuers, there were saints praying. When every passenger and crew member was rescued from the plane, there were saints praying. Right now, there are saints praying.

And now everyone is wondering how the plane miraculously stayed afloat and how come no one was injured…There were saints praying. And when the saints go into prayer, God hears their call. How great is our God! Thank you Lord for saving those people.
