Prayer for those Suffering in the wake of Natural Disaster
Lord, I just want to say THANK YOU, because this morning I woke up and knew where my children were. Because this morning my home was still standing, and I am not crying because my husband, my child, my brother or sister needs to be buried out from underneath a pile of concrete, because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water, to turn on the light, to take a shower, and because this morning I was not planning a funeral.
But most of all I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people suffering from natural disaster. Lord I cry out to you, the one that makes the impossible, possible, the one that turns darkness in to light. I cry out that you give those mothers strength, that you give them peace that surpasses all understanding,that you may open the streets so that help can come, that you may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they need in a blink of an eye.
For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on. Protect the children and shield them with your power. And help me to remember their needs long after their story has left the national news.
I pray all this in the name of Jesus.
