Gratitude to God For Answered Prayer!

I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.

Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust

[Psalm 40]

miner prays

Mario Gomez, at 63 the oldest of the miners, fell to his knees in prayer as he emerged from the mine. It was the second time in his life he had been trapped underground. He said he never lost faith the group would be rescued. On the front of his shirt it says "Gracias Senor!" - "Thank You Lord!"


  1. How moving. I ahvent watched the day time news so it was so good to read this.
    My e mail to you has just been returned!

  2. Hubby and me were discussing the (nothing short of miraculous, if you ask me)rescue last night. The fact that the disaster was made public (given Chile's history), the fact that through technology the miners were able to see and speak to their families, that this rescue was attempted earlier than expected, that the world prayed for these men...WOW!
    "Glory to God whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine".

  3. A wonderful historic time--cottonreel

  4. Isn't it just fabulous! Even my suns are very impressed by the whole story.

  5. It brings tears to my eyes every time I think of it.
