Prayers of the Powerless
Our BART train system went on strike in the San Francisco Bay area. Suddenly, a lot of non-prayers, or light prayers, are praying a whole lot that God will fix things. We are all powerless to make the union and the management come together to solve their differences. Prayer is our only power. For many people, it is the last resort. It is the reality of the modern western world that we only turn to God when there seems to be no other way. A prayer of just wanting to spend time with God? Well, that is for someone else.
