911 November 15, 2017

The 911 emergency system has amazing capabilities. In most places, a person need only dial those three numbers to be instantly connected to a dispatcher. The dispatcher sees on a computer screen the caller’s telephone number, address, and the name under which the number is listed. A caller does not even have to say anything. Even rasping coughs and hysterical cries have brought a quick response. The dispatcher knows where the call is coming from and help is sent. At times, situations in our lives are so desperate and our pain so deep we can only muster 911 prayers to God. Like the Psalmist, we too can pray, “In my distress, I cried unto the Lord…” And we too will be able to say, “… and He heard me.” God hears each one. He knows our name and every detail of the situation. He will send precisely what is needed.
