Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


     "In my vision that night, I, Daniel, saw a great storm churning the surface of a great sea, with strong winds blowing from every direction." Daniel 7:2 (NLT)  

Father, we are all intimated by the monstrous power and devastating effects of hurricanes. Their force is irresistible, their reach is overwhelming and their destruction lasts for years. We flee in fear of their ominous danger and the death they bring.  So we pray for those upon whom Hurricane Irma is bearing down. We pray for their safety and protection.

Father I am reminded of the ancient sailors and their horrific experience in the storm.
     23 Some went off to sea in ships, plying the trade routes of the world. 24 They, too, observed the LORD’s power in action, his impressive works on the deepest seas. 25 He spoke, and the winds rose, stirring up the waves. 26 Their ships were tossed to the heavens and plunged again to the depths; the sailors cringed in terror. 27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards and were at their wits’ end. 28 “LORD, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. 29 He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves. 30 What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! 31 Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. Psalm 107:23-31 (NLT)

Father we pray for deliverance, peace and grace for all who have been and will be crying out to you for help, in their time of trouble, as they encounter the fierce winds and waves of Hurricane Irma.

In Jesus strong name, Amen.
