Father God, once again we are reminded of the fallen state of our country. Our hearts ache for the terror experienced by our leaders. I pray for the families of those involved, that they will know Your presence and will seek the peace You provide. Oh Father, heal our land. Convict Your people to continue in prayer for our country—today and always. And please use this experience to draw our leaders closer to You and to each other. Thank you, Jesus, for what You are going to do. In Your precious, Holy Name.
Praying for our beloved country,
Lord, our hearts ache for those devastated by the recent hurricane. For those who have lost loved ones, we pray for Your comfort in their lives. Make us sensitive to their needs. May Your Holy Spirit open our eyes to genuine, practical ways to reach the ones who are hurting. Help us to look beyond our time of simple inconvenience to those who are clinging to any promise of hope.
And Father, we pray for those on the front lines of rescue and restoration. For every emergency worker, utility worker, state and community leader—we pray for their safety and strength.
Father God, thank you for being our Stronghold and Deliverer. You are Master over every storm in our lives. In every wave that washes over us, help us to see Your hand and to know that You remain in control.
Thank you, Jesus. We love You.
Please join me in praying for the families devastated by Hurricane Matthew—especially those in Haiti.
