Prayer Chaplain Corner
Greetings from your Prayer Chaplain Team.
I am writing this article on April 19th, the anniversary of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. This morning my radio was tuned to KGOU as U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland gave an emotional speech at the Remembrance Ceremony. I teared up as he recounted how Oklahomans stepped up, unbidden, to provide help and support in the aftermath of the bombing. This propensity for kindhearted volunteerism has been hailed as the Oklahoma Standard.
I propose that the Oklahoma Standard is an example of God moving in and through us to bring what is needed when it’s needed to those who need it. Unity poet James Dillet Freeman eloquently expresses this in an excerpt from his poem, “I Am There”:
Do you need Me?
I am there.
You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by.
You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel Me, yet I am the power at work in your hands.
We Prayer Chaplains are blessed by the opportunity to embody the Oklahoma Standard through prayer. Please join us for prayer after Sunday service in the lobby or in the sanctuary’s prayer chairs.
In Service, Rene Holubec
