In November, 1965, the electric current was off in New York and its outskirts: an area of 800000 miles square, covering seven American states and great part of Ontario, Canada. The electric current was off for about thirteen hours in some regions. The losses were worth a hundred million Dollars. About 300000 loaves of bread got rotten in the bakery; the industrial machines stopped; two hundred airplanes could not land etc. Because of all these losses, the officials did their best to avoid facing such a disaster again. God has granted us the current of His Holy Spirit who enlightens and edifies us. Notwithstanding, we are indifferent to Him. We do not mind interacting with Him, not realizing that we thus lose much.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: انقطاع التيار الكهربائي.

St-Takla.org Divider

Let me, O Lord, interact with Your Fiery Spirit.

May Your Spirit enlighten my depth.

Without Him, I lose much

And my eternal life is destroyed.
