thank you Doug.

It was so neat how you turned your thoughts on the valley of the dry bones into a prayer. You reminded me of that verse in Hosea 2 where God tells Israel that He will make the Valley of Achor into a door of hope. When i pray for hopeless situations i want somehow to be a part of that door of hope.

isn't it extraordinary that God, who fully feels and is fully good, enters into our darkest devastation? even when its man's atrocity to man (hacking each other to death or whatever), He does not turn His face away, or avoid 'knowing' about it. instead He is present in the midst of it, and He is calling His prophets and intercessors (and whoever is willing) to come stand with Him there.

Amen.

It is the power of God to resurect what is seemingly dead and beyond living...whether it be physical, emotional, psychological, or spiritual. Yet another facet of the deep meaning of the story of Jesus death and resurrection and what it means for us.
