Prevailing With God

OldmanHere's a really powerful post at Michelle Malkin's about the "falling man" in the photograph taken by AP photographer, Richard Drew, on 9/11 at the World Trade  Center. Apparently it has been difficult to determine who he was, but some people have been working on it and think they've come of with an answer. Please go read it. Let me just quote one part of the story since it involves prayer:

Jonathan Briley worked at Windows on the World. Some of his coworkers, when they saw Richard Drew's photographs, thought he might be the Falling Man. He was a light-skinned black man. He was over six five. He was forty-three. He had a mustache and a goatee and close-cropped hair. He had a wife named Hillary.

Jonathan Briley's father is a preacher, a man who has devoted his whole life to serving the Lord. After September 11, he gathered his family together to ask God to tell him where his son was. No: He demanded it. He used these words: "Lord, I demand to know where my son is." For three hours straight, he prayed in his deep voice, until he spent the grace he had accumulated over a lifetime in the insistence of his appeal.

The next day, the FBI called. They'd found his son's body. It was, miraculously, intact.
