Band Of Brothers


But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

--James 1:25 (NLT)


On Wednesday s, Army Sergeant Curtis McGaw organized an informal prayer breakfast group hoping to attract like-minded unit members into his Christian group. At first, Sergeant McGaw met with two other soldiers. Within a year, the three person group grew to eight. The informal group decided to call themselves the Wednesday Morning Delta Company Breakfast Club.

During one of their meetings, a member requested prayer for a sister who had to have an operation for breast cancer. The group offered to pray for his sister as a group. Additionally, the group, however, had a difficult comforting their fellow soldier for his teenage sister.

For the next fifteen days, Sergeant McGaw prayed for things he and the other members could do to reassure the worried soldier. An idea came to him. With his personal computer, Sergeant McGaw began sending the soldier what he called “pep notes”. The pep notes were signed by the other members of the prayer group as well as other unit members.

At one of the meetings, the soldier informed the group that his sister had a successful surgery and her future looked bright. He looked around the table then said: “You know what’s great about you guys? I came to you confused and hurting. You sent me ‘pep notes’, some of you checked on me at the supply room, you verbally told me everything would be okay, you all seemed to refuse to let me get down in the dumps and Sarge you got the Captain to let me be at my sister’s operation. You guys showed me, whether you know it or not, that you really care!”

“Hey, bro, that’s called putting the pedal to the medal and backing a brother. We are a band of brothers,” responded McGaw.

“Yeah, that’s so” the soldier said. “The way I look at it all the things you guys did for me and my sister ARE prayers as well.”

Each member of the Delta Breakfast Club nodded their heads in agreement. The work that is performed on behalf of one suffering can be a form of prayer.


Prayer: Grant me the ability, O Merciful God, the power to make my work and prayers for
others, friend or foe, a reflection of Your love and healing.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
