The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him. Nahum1:7
The ravages of multiple tornadoes made known their fury in Texas this week as the roar of violent winds blew though neigborhoods destroying property and threatening life.
Their path was deep and wide around Granbury, Texas.
Children huddled in a closet praying and singing hymns.
Raul Rodriguez had never had a home until Habitat for Humanity built one for him and his family. They clung to each other in an inner room and when the storm passed , to his amazement his home was still standing. His neighbors’ homes were devastated.
Broken homes and lives began the struggle to begin again.
Cities like Joplin and Tuscaloosa know this crushing reality and the aftermath that comes.
People lost their lives.
People were injured.
People faced hopelessness.
We come to YOU and lift up these who have endured to see the light of day and now review the damage.
Bring resources from the north, south , east and west to aid the victims.
Let the doors of churches open and respond with food, clothing and shelter.
Send doctors, medicines, water, supplies of every kind.
SEND HOPE, LOVE, STRENGTH, MERCY, COMPASSION AND GOODNESS to these.
YOUR Word never promised us that we would not have trouble.
YOUR Word says YOU will be a STRONGHOLD in it.
This we claim and we hold on!
We now lift these to YOU in prayer for spiritual, emotional and physical HELP.
Bond these families and friends together.
Comfort those who grieve.
Encourage those who follow YOU to Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24
Each day bring some word, some piece of music , some thought , some affirmation to carry the hearts which despair. Move in wondrous ways to cause the Community of Faith to rise and embrace each one that has lived through this week of destroying whirlwinds.
COME AND RESTORE!
SEND YOUR AMAZING GRACE !
MAY THE MELODIES OF FAITH FIND VOICE !
MAY CHURCH BELLS RING!
SUNDAY IS COMING!
ENLARGE THE PLACE OF YOUR TENT. STRETCH YOUR TENT CURTAINS WIDE, DO NOT HOLD BACK; LENGTHEN YOUR CHORDS. STRENGTHEN YOUR STAKES. ISAIAH 54:2
When disaster strikes, we the people come together.
This is what we are called to do.
WE WILL RESPOND IN FAITH BY GIVING.
THEREFORE WE BOW DOWN BEFORE YOU AND PLEAD FOR RESCUE FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN TEXAS.
God Bless them.
In Jesus’ Name, we pray.
