WW II was the inspiration of many songs that were popular for the war’s duration. One of them was based on a true incident when a crew of a badly crippled B-17 made it back to their base in England on one wing and the partial of the other.
“Comin’ In On a Wing and a Prayer, I’m comin’ in on a wing and a prayer. With my full crew aboard and my trust in the Lord, I’m comin’ in on a wing and a prayer.” Our days are like that sometime. JESUS promised to be with us, even to the very last breath on earth. HE also promised that there would be troubles and personal trials, but in Faith, we could overcome all of them. In James, chapter 5, verse 7 he says,”Be patient, therefore brothers, until the coming of the Lord”. The Bible is full of warnings of travail, but the FAITH of GOD will never result in failure. Even as Job suffered the loss of everything, including his health, he never failed to praise GOD! David was constantly having to deal with his contrite heart, yet GOD blessed him, even calling him “A Man After Mine Own Heart”. Every day we should be prepared to come in on a wing and a prayer – especially the prayer part. These are times when a true believer must pray without ceasing, humbly bowing to the will of the FATHER and being thankful for all that happens, good or bad. David said, “Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God, and renew the right spirit within me”. How great is that knowledge and how wonderful is it that it can apply to you and me? Now that’s a HOOT, donchaknow. Amen
