  • for those in California, affected by the fires there

    I haven't seen a prayer thread on this, so...

    Please pray for those in Cali who are dealing with the fires there. I know it happens just about every year, but that sure doesn't make it any easier for them to deal with. People are losing homes, the smoke is affecting folks for miles around, and the people who have to try and keep everything under control are stressed out.... the weakened winds are helping them a bit, it seems... but please, pray for everyone there.

    ROMANS 5:8. Forgiven. Freed. Humbled. Amazed. Grateful. Relying on Christ.

    Love is not a place to come and go as we please
    It's a house we enter in, then commit to never leave
    So lock the door behind you, and throw away the key
    We'll work it out together, let it bring us to our knees.....

        Father we pray for proteciton and for peace for the Californians. There are many things that we could pray for Lord and many things to pray against, but we lift up our brothers and sisters, believers and unbelievers and we ask that the testimonies that are always there in times like these be the focus of the media and the residents. Lord we pray all these things in your name.

            Don't tell God how Big the storm is, Tell the storm how BIG YOUR GOD IS

            Psalm 46:10
            Be still, and know that I am God;
            I will be exalted among the nations,
            I will be exalted in the earth.

            Hosea 12:6
            But you must return to your God;
            maintain love and justice,
            wait for your God always.


            ...all over again

              I will definitely be praying.

              Dear Lord, we come before You right now in the mighty name of Jesus, and we ask that You would work in a mighty way in the California wildfires that seem to be raging out of control. Lord, we believe that since we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, we have the same authority Jesus had to command the elements during His earthly ministry. Just like Jesus commanded the wind and waves on the Sea of Galilee and said, "Calm. Be still!" we claim and stand on that exact same authority and say to the raging wildfires in California, "Calm. Be still in the mighty name of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of the living God!" We ask right now, Lord, that You would begin to align the weather patterns in such a way over California and the surrounding area that the firefighters, as well as the volunteers helping them out, would be able to get those fires under control quickly and easily put them out. Move in the atmosphere, Lord, to bring just the right kind and amount of wind, rain, and anything else the firefighters might need to help get those fires under control and put out. Grant those firefighters a chance to rest so that they can be refreshed and alert to fight those fires in a way that is both safe and honoring to You. Help all those who have lost their homes due to the fires to find the shelter and provision they most desperately need, and bring loving, godly Christians across their paths who will preach the gospel to them through both their words and their deeds. Let this situation be a powerful testimony to Your love, grace, mercy and provision in the midst of what man would like to refer to as "natural disasters". Help all those affected know that while we can't always understand why you allow things like this to happen, we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that You are with us in the midst of them, helping us to get through them with constant reminders of Your love, forgiveness and grace. In Jesus' mighty and holy name we pray all of these things. Amen and amen!

              Yours in Christ,
