Free Electric-Car Recharging


Gasoline stations, in cooperatio n with the local governments of Japan, are beginning to install systems that guide electric vehicle drivers to unoccupied charging stations, hoping to popularize electric vehicles by making it possible to recharge without waiting in long lines and without any cost.
Electric vehicles will have charger-outfitted gas stations displayed on GPS navigation devices in their cars. At a single glance, drivers will be able to tell where recharging stations are available.
Current electric vehicles must be recharged more frequently than gas-powered vehicles refueling during a single journey.
When a charger is in use, the displayed icon will change color accordingly, making it easier for drivers to find nearby open chargers.
As even a high-speed charger takes more than 10 minutes to fully recharge a vehicle, long lines at recharging stations could be a potential pitfall in the quest to popularize this environmentally friendly form of transportation.

Followers of Christ are in direct contact with Heaven’s power house to recharge their spiritual batteries! We do not need to wait in a line for an open charger!
A good time to get their batteries charged for the activities of the day is early in the morning!

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up (Ps. 5:3, KJV).

King David felt he needed a new charge, three times a day!
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice (Ps. 55:17, KJV).

Anywhere at any time for any task, we can plug in to heaven for strength and help Let Him help today!
