Hurricane Harvey has been labeled a disaster of biblical proportions. So far it has dumped trillions of gallons of water over Houston Texas, that’s a lot of water! It has destroyed neighborhoods and towns, taking with it human lives, many of which are still unknown, leaving over 30,000 homeless according to news reports, and it’s not over.
As followers of Jesus Christ we must pray for the people affected by this tragic storm, praying for those injured, for all who have suffered loss, for all affected. We must also pray for those searching and rescuing, for those giving help and aid.
Whatever befalls us God is with us. Whatever we face in life God is with us. And whatever we suffer in this life God will see us through. Seek the good Lord in all things, give Him thanks, praise, worship and glory. Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!

Commentary by: Gordon King
American pastor Saeed Abedini has been imprisoned in Iran for one year. His crime? Being a Christian pastor. Christians around the world have been praying for the pastors release from prison. Pressure has been put on the American government to do something. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is fighting for the release of pastor Abedini.
Finally, after one year, President Obama has asked for the release of the pastor. Why the sudden change of heart? Only God knows for sure, but without the prayers of the saints I don’t think it would have happened. I have to give thanks to President Obama for this act, even though it took him one year to respond. He deserves credit for making the right move.
Pastor Saeed is still not free. We do not know how the Iranian government will respond to the President’s request. The pastor needs our continued prayers and support. Continue to pray for Pastor Saeed and his family. God Bless!
