Let Us Join Our Voices Together
Let us join our voices together as we lift up to the Lord our brothers and sisters affected these terrible storms in our nation, especially Texas and Florida, and in the Caribbean islands (especially Puerto Rico, Barbuda and St. Martin).
Let’s read Psalm 46:1-5. Heavenly Father, we pray for comfort for all who have lost their loved ones, homes and property. We pray for courage, strength and protection for all the first responders, police, firemen, rescue workers; courageous men and women who have stepped up to help those in need. We pray for provision; financial, labor and all logistics needed by the wonderful volunteer organizations on the ground, as well as the local churches who are being the hands and feet of Christ in amazing ways throughout these tragedies by providing food, shelter, water, and most of all, spiritual encouragement and hope in these affected areas.
And Father God we speak life and healing over them in the powerful name of Jesus. We speak restoration and resilience over them in the powerful name of Jesus; above all we speak faith, hope and love into their lives. We lift up our nation, Father God and we pray for healing, love and unity upon this nation. May we be reminded, now more than ever of that which is most important - Our eternal destiny - and lay aside all that divides us, which doesn't really matter at the end of the day. Help us to take advantage of every opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ, and the blessed hope that is found In Him, with those who cross our paths, for indeed tomorrow is promised to no one. We love you Lord, and we thank you for being the only true anchor for our souls. In Jesus' mighty name we pray. Amen.
