Praise for surfer rescued off the coast of Sydney
Lord, with all the hard things happening
in the world, both near and far, it is so encouraging to hear rescue stories.
Lord, we are just thrilled that a 37-year-old Japanese surfer was rescued after
floating in the ocean for 16 hours. We cannot imagine how that felt to drift
through the night on a surfboard, probably not having much hope of survival,
and then to be picked up by a boat the next day. We are thankful that
temperatures stayed low enough for him to avoid hypothermia, and that the crew
members of the MSC Damla were observant
and willing to go out of their way. Lord, bless those who rescued him. Bless
the recovery process of this surfer. Thank you
again that this man is safe, and that there is always hope in you, whether the
days seem bright or dark. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
