If I have learned anything in the past few years it is that NO ONE is exempt from suffering. It comes to all of us just in different forms. I have also learned that though you survive something that may seem unthinkable once, you are not exempt from it happening again.
It is with that thought in mind that I ask you ALL to join me today and in the coming days in prayer for those who live in the path of Hurricane Gustav. This area has already had it's share of suffering and they are again fleeing their homes and all they know in hopes of staying safe. I cannot imagine what this would be like and my heart is heavy for all who are facing this evacuation.
You are the one and only Lord over the universe. You oversee the country in which we live and we are in awe of your power and thank you for your protection and for providing everything we need.
We pray Lord, that you will calm the winds of Hurricane Gustav and Tropical Storm Hanna please deliver us from this impending destruction. We are so unworthy of your protection and love and yet we know you will provide.
Calm the hearts of those projected to be affected by these storms and give them peace. We love you and know this is all in your hands. We thank you for holding ALL of us in the palm of your hand and praise you for the awesome God you are! You tell the winds where to blow and where the ocean can meet the land. We pray today for your mercy and grace to fall upon this nation and ask that you move many hearts toward you as you are the light of the world!
In Your Sweet Name We Pray!
Please pray this prayer and pray, knowing God WILL answer!
