TOPICS OF TRUTH P asto r;Jsl;r3s J o nes Stuck in the miry clay of sin Many years ago - before they had rubber on the wheels - in Scott County there was a road named Cowan's Creek Road. Since the road was close to the creek, most of the time the road was a muddy mess. There was a church nearby and one of the members was a man who had a speech impairment. He was self- conscious and said very little in church. But finally one night when he was asked to say a prayer he agreed to and his prayer went like this - "Oh Lordy come down here on Cowan's Creek; pick these people up out of this miry clay by the hair of their head; drag them up through Pap's old gravel field like a sow with her rooter broke; stand them up under the big, black hall tree, as straight as a duck in a hail storm - Amen." Well, most of the congregation laughed and made fun of his prayer. But if you really think about it, his prayer made sense. There are many people who are stuck in the miry clay of sin. In Ezekiel 8-3, the Lord reached down and got Ezekiel 13y the hair of his head - lifted him up between the Earth and the Heavens and showed him some things. It is important for people to stand straight and tall in the eyes of the Lord and also in the eyes of their fellow man. So maybe the old man's prayer wasn't so much out of order after all.
