Your prayers are definitely needed for the U.S. right now. This storm’s timing and widespread damages have already left an devastating impact, and could affect things further with the 2012 Presidential Elections right around the corner (to pray for America and the Elections click HERE .)
Lift up your voice today on behalf of those without power, those who have lost loved ones, and those who do not yet know the hope of glory in Christ. Let’s pray until these flood waters subside!
God of all comfort, we come to you on behalf of all of the people who have been affected by this storm. May Your presence be seen and felt among those who have faced great loss. We ask that they will receive the help they need speedily, and that You would protect all the communities from any further damage. Enable the relief workers to quickly get to where they need to be. Father, release a spirit of unity and peace in such a way that reminds everyone that they are not alone: show them that Your love runs deeper than despair, and that You alone can give them peace that can never be taken away. In the name of Jesus we hope and pray, amen.
