Seeds Of Hope For Wednesday, January 19, 2022
SAVE ME, LORD
Jennifer never met a stranger. No matter where she was or who she met, she always made friends quickly.
Once when traveling on a train, she became bored and decided to walk down the aisle and chat with the folk who were on the train with her. Smilingly she went from seat to seat greeting the passengers. Everyone wanted to know who she was and who she was going to visit. Without any notice, the train entered a tunnel and darkness filled the passenger car before the bright lights came on. Little Jennifer ran down the aisle shouting, “Help, Mom! Where are you? I need you!” Standing in the aisle, her mother reached out to her, hugged her and said, “It’s O.K. I’m right here with you, Jennifer. Don’t be afraid.”
When things are going well, and we are enjoying prosperity, it is difficult to admit that we need anyone’s help. But when the “lights go out,” we all tend to run to someone who we believe can help us.
The author of Psalm 116 was going through a dark and difficult time in his life. Things looked dismal. He was overcome with trouble and sorrow. “Then,” he wrote, “I called on the name of the Lord; O Lord, save me!”
In four simple words, he said everything that needed to be said. There was no time for formalities, and no need for any particular posture. Problems erupted. Help was needed. God was listening. Problem solved!
“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” Length is not part of the equation. Sincerity and righteousness are what make prayer powerful.
Prayer: Lord, in our dark times we run to You. Teach us and help us to walk with You in the light. We need You all the time! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: – Then I called on the name of the LORD: “LORD, save me!” Psalm 116:4

Guido Prison Ministry
Won’t you pray about your involvement with our ministry to prisoners? We don’t send out bulk mailings to prisons for random distribution, but we add each prisoner to our mailing list as they request it. At present, we send out 2,300 packages to individuals in prison each month. Each day we receive letters from many, telling us how much our devotionals mean to them, and how they share them with their fellow inmates. We can send one prisoner material each month at the cost of $20 a year. That’s not a lot. Join us in this ministry to those that need it so much… the prisoners. Contact us at 912-685-2222 to become a partner in reaching out to those the Bible tells us not to forget. Go here to a special blog that collects prisoner testimonial letters that show the effects of this ministry and highlight the need!
