Anyone who believes in miracles and in the power of prayer should be begging for the welfare of those 30 miners imprisoned in the shaft of a copper mine 2,000 feet below the surface in Chile.
In a room little larger than a hotel room, about 30 miners have been trapped since early August. Their heroism and discipline have kept them alive and now a shaft has been opened to reach them with fresh air and the other essentials to maintain life. However, the situation is agonizing and some estimates are that they cannot be reached with a new shaft for over two months, possibly as long as four months. You can read more about their precarious situation at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-11054376
Please pray for the miners and for their families that are suffering through such an agonizing ordeal.
Faith, courage and discipline are required by everyone but these brave men are all too human.
