What in the world is going on in America with all of these super storms? Hurricane Harvey has left much of the South West in turmoil and devastation and has been labeled as one of if not the costliest in U.S. history!
Now, only a week apart, Hurricane Irma is expected to make landfall in Florida by this weekend. This Hurricane is being called the strongest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic! The hurricane is a level 5, the strongest of them all.
As I write this post the storm is battering the Caribbean, and from what I have heard with winds from 175 miles per hour.
As followers of Jesus Christ we must humble ourselves before the Lord and pray. Pray for those standing in the path of this deadly hurricane. We must pray for their safety, for the good Lord to protect them, to comfort them, and to provide for them. We should also pray for the Lord to weaken the hurricane and lead it out of the path of civilization.
God Almighty, Father in heaven, I come to You interceding with prayers for those in the path of Hurricane Irma. I ask in Jesus name that You protect those living in its path, that You comfort them, provide for them, and give them refuge under Your mighty wings. Have mercy for them and show them who You are, save them out of the path of destruction to the glory of Your great name! Weaken the Hurricane and subdue its strength. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
Heavenly Father, I pray to you now for all brothers and sisters that my be in the path of the hurricane named Irma that has already caused devastation and is now heading to the East Coast of America. I ask that they will know your peace that goes beyond natural understanding. I ask that each brother and sister will be strengthened and comforted by your Spirit within them and know no fear but trust in your perfect love for them . Cause those that know and trust you to be your lights shining and for others in darkness, reaching out to them to help and comfort from the hope that is within them. Please give your children wisdom
Let those who take refuge in You rejoice, let them ever sing for joy. Please defend all those who love Your name may they exult in You. For You do bless the righteous. Oh Lord cover them with favor as with a shield. Deliver them because they delight in you, be their refuge and strength a very present help in trouble. Let them not fear though the Earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea, though it’s waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. Be merciful to them oh God to all who call upon your name, let their soul find refuge in You. In the shadow of your wings protect them until the storms of destruction pass by. Send from Heaven and save ALL who call on thee!
In Jesus name I pray.
I will be praying for all those affected and in the path of this destructive Hurricane !
God bless you!
