Our next snapshot from the past is another article written by Pastor Miller for Outreach, this one published in the May, 1976 edition. In this article, Pastor Miller recounted the hardships our church faced in 1975. Such hardship led the congregation to a renewed commitment to prayer. Pastor Miller then joyfully reported how the next year in 1976 saw many refreshing answers to prayer and much improved circumstances for the church.
This article by Pastor Miller reminds us what a difference a year can make. As the challenging year of 2020 nears its end, may we look forward to what refreshing blessings and improved circumstances the Lord might bring for us in 2021. However, may Pastor Miller’s article especially remind us to yet labor long in prayer and through these trials to count them all joy as the Lord teaches us to depend on Him.
