As you read this, I am either in a plane headed to NYC, or have already arrived. For the rest of the month, except for 3 days, I will be either in NYC or the West coast. I plan to post most days if the time allows. If I’m spotty you will know the reason.
I recently wrote of my 95 year old friend that I met while in New York. I had only met him for a few minutes and something was said that urged him to want to have prayer right then. This happened a few different times in my week being around him. They were real, genuine, heartfelt prayers. I remember him sharing with me a list of 10 people that he was praying for, and he asked me to pray for them as well. They are all influential Jewish people, one of them being Charles Krauthammer. My friend not only prays for them, but also sends them letters and emails. Below is an example of one to Krauthammer. He always sends me copies.
My Dear, highly esteemed, greatly respected, and lovingly admired, Dr. Krauthammer:My wonderful wife, of 62.5 years of mostly wedded bliss, is readingthe Subject. She shared with me last evening (Which ChapterI do not know) that you described Liberals as viewing all people as “good”even though 4,000 years of history demonstrates the opposite to be true.The Tanakh describes our situation as ‘sinful’ or as ‘missing the mark’.Jesus supplied the answer – but a difficult one to accept – when He said:“Unless the Father, who sent Me draws him, no man comes to Me.”I pray, daily, sometimes more than once, that, the Father who sent Jesuswill draw you to Him.Blessings and love,Robert H. Johnson, 95+ year old WWII Vet.This is a real God-given burden for a person. Krauthammer is a professing atheist. May God burden our hearts to both pray and share the truth with those that don’t know Jesus.Something to think about on this beautiful Lord’s Day.Shalom, until next time, Lord willing,Levi
