Reaching the LORD through prayer
Earnestly asking God to preserve you & company
Jostling, turning in sleep, waking @ 4AM to continue prayers
Openly knowing God’s reality is not mine I persevere in prayer
In Christ we are united, you are my brother, dearly loved
Continue to pray, regardless of what the mountains stats say
Incredible is the spirit of man, a Godly man knows his home
News in Sunday School, you are rescued, applause erupts
God is to be praised this Father’s Day for you are here, alive
My heart was heavy upon hearing the news of your summit and then…your need for help b/c something had gone wrong. I forwarded the notice to Drew. My prayers went up asking the Lord to preserve you, to enfold you, to guard over you, to keep your spirits alive, to keep your minds on survival, to not give up. We prayed before bed and I woke in the night knowing you all were still in some -39 below zero weather, on a summit that swallows many. I prayed, I saw the clock; 4AM; I prayed the above all over again. Getting ready for church I looked for news. I thought of the VanDeWalkers and let them know on Father’s Day what you all were facing. Praise God you are alive. We are rejoicing for you, our beloved brother!
May the LORD’s blessings be forever enfolding you, Becky and your children.
