Thank You for our many blessings today. We come to You to pray for all of the victims of the terrible flooding along the front ranges of the Rocky Mountains of our great western states. We extend our prayers to the people of Mexico, Japan and all around the world. Millions have lost everything. We pray that You would help us to realize all of the blessings that come directly from You, even when times are at their worst. We pray that You will bring great hope and help to victims and also bring the realization that You are there for all of us, and all of the victims of this great flood.
We are beginning to understand that You are pouring out your wrath on America. We pray for our country, that it will once again turn to please You, and turn away from the evil that has such a stronghold on our governing bodies. We pray that You will give our congresspersons strength as they work to raise monies, rebuild infrastructure and attempt to help our citizens recover from this terrible disaster.
We pray that You guard and protect the rescuers, who often have to manage dangerous conditions in order to reach survivors. We pray You lessen the despair of all of the victims who are devastated, having lost everything. We pray that You keep them safe all up and down the canyons of the front range, indeed all around the world, until rescuers can reach them. We pray that you bring many blessings to these victims, helping them to rebuild their lives, and helping them to hope once again. We pray that we all learn to lean on You, not only when the going gets tough, but even on our sunny days. We pray also that you intervene for the many stranded animals up and down the swollen rivers. We are ever so grateful for your providential help, LORD.
In the name of Jesus we pray.
