Hear My Cry – Man as Chaplain


Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations. May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him. Then I will ever sing in praise of your name and fulfill my vows day after day. - Psalm 61:1-8 ESV


I came across a
story about a dear friend of mine that I had not heard, and it came with a powerful lesson:

Late one night, a man in Slim Cornett’s church was showing Slim around a county airport in rural Mississippi. “This switch lights up the runway,” the man said as he flipped it. “Then, let’s say there is a plane in distress up there. I would throw this switch and turn on the search lights.” As the night skies lit up, a small plane materialized out of the darkness and landed. Slim and his friend watched in amazement as Franklin Graham, son of the famous evangelist, stepped off the plane. The pilot had been flying Franklin back to school in Texas when the electrical system shut down, leaving them stranded in the Mississippi night without lights or radio or any means of guidance. From out of nowhere, the search beam had come on and guided them to the landing strip. As Franklin’s mother, Ruth, tells the story, earlier that evening before they left home, Billy Graham had prayed for the Father to protect and guide his son and the pilot.


That story about my friend Franklin Graham caused me to reflect. How many times did I go downrange into harm’s way only to return home and find out that my dear mother had been crying out to the Lord for me, that God would protect and guide me through all the difficulties she sensed I was experiencing? I believe I am alive today because of her prayers and God’s presence.
