During one summer while I was in seminary, I worked as a chaplain at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD. I discovered while I was there that there were one group of people who were really open to prayer and to hearing about the need for Christ in their lives. Who were they? Men in the cardiac units. Many of these fellows were professional business men who were used to operating out of their strength. They ignored their physical limits, many had been ignoring their families, and most had had no time for God. But, now, they were in a place of weakness. They could no longer control things. These guys were stuck in a hospital bed, helpless. They were finally realizing that they needed someone Bigger than them in their lives. Even though I was only 29 at the time, my appearance in their hospital room was like the appearance of a water carrier to a person in Death Valley. They had gone from thinking they were invulnerable, to realizing they were very vulnerable indeed. Indeed, there are no atheists in foxholes. It was very rewarding indeed to be able to talk with them, and pray with them, and lead many of them to the God who has the right to be the Ruler of our souls.
