Massive Tornado Hits Oklahoma

We are so grateful to have YOU – our backup “power generator” of prayer
for emergencies like this.

oklahoma city tornado

Just a few hours ago, a massive tornado churned across the southern part of Oklahoma City, leaving two elementary schools and many homes in Moore, OK, completely destroyed. The storm’s damage is widespread and devastating, with around 30 square miles of the city totally ravaged.

News info is updating rapidly, but at this point the death toll is at 37, which tragically includes many children from the schools that were hit.

Your prayers are truly needed at this crucial time!

Children and staff are still unaccounted for in one of the schools, and are believed to be buried in the debris. Those waiting to be rescued NEED your prayers today.

Scriptures to pray:

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.” (Psalm 46:1-12)

“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!'” (Romans 8:15)

Pray now:

Abba Father, we unite in a spirit of prayer right now and cry out for your hand of mercy to be outstretched over Moore, Oklahoma. We thank you that you are the God who sees and who hears – that you are not distant, but you are close to the needy and the brokenhearted.

Today we ask for miracles for those who are still trapped in the debris – Father please sustain them, heal them, and by your divine power direct the search and rescue teams to find them speedily.

We bind a spirit of fear right now, in Jesus’ name. Abba, send your spirit of peace to every child who is afraid, and be the comforter of the families who have been affected by today’s devastation. In the midst of this calamity, would your presence and your gentle love be made known. We pray for the church of Oklahoma to be empowered and inspired to move and give and love wherever it is needed, and for Jesus to be glorified in their service.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

 have prayed.
