On our Knees

On May 3, 1999 I was serving as Chaplain for the Oklahoma House of Representatives. On May 4, I led a special prayer service with our Legislators in the Capitol beginning with these words:  

The devastating tornadoes have brought us to our knees. But on our knees is where we should be in times of tragedy...

Again today, we begin our day on our knees praying for those who are hurting and asking God to strengthen us in our recovery efforts. 

And then we rise and get to work.
