Those Living in Darkness . . .
The past few mornings we have heard the first call to prayer at 4:50 a.m. Our thoughts are drawn to the thousands of Muslims who faithfully rouse themselves from quiet slumber to begin their day with prayer. It is cool outside and darkness covers the city because the sun has not begun to shine. They wash, unroll their prayer rugs and face Mecca. They pray to a god who neither hears nor cares for them. He is, in fact, no god at all. Please pray for these Muslims as they live and work in darkness where the Son has yet to shine.
