My son-in-law reminded me of a beautiful Jewish saying about prayer:
Even if a sharp sword rests upon a person’s neck, he should not refrain from praying for mercy.
One can still hope for mercy from the Almighty even at death’s door.
This is truly beautiful and uplifting–we can approach G-d anytime, and as long as we are alive, there is always hope.
The saving from G-d is like “the blink of an eye.” 😉
