Five young college students were spending a Sunday in London, so they went to hear the famed C.H. Spurgeon preach.  While waiting for the doors to open, the students were greeted by a man who asked, “Gentlemen, let me show you around.  Would you like to see the heating plant of this church?”  They were not particularly interested, for it was a hot day in July.  But they didn’t want to offend the stranger, so they consented.  The young men were taken down a stairway, a door was quietly opened, and their guide whispered, “This is our heating plant.”  Surprised, the students saw 700 people bowed in prayer, seeking a blessing on the service that was soon to begin in the auditorium above.  Softly closing the door, the gentleman then introduced himself.  It was none other than Charles Spurgeon. (Excerpt from Our Daily Bread).  Are you part of the “heating plant” within your airline workplace?  Consider this:  “…The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much” (James 5:16).

Here in the United States, the first Thursday of May is designated as a NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER.   We encourage you to spend extra time on this day praying for your nation.  If you do not live here in the United States, we not only covet your prayers for us but also encourage you to pray for the leaders and people of your own country.  To learn more about ongoing prayer opportunities in FCAP, click FCAP Prayer Network.
