As Hurricane Laura has devastated much land and assets of the people of Louisiana and Texas and taken several loved ones, O Lord we pray that You will be with Your people. Assure them of Your Presence and that whatever has happened has been under Your control. We ask for your mercy and grace to meet the needs of Your people for a roof over their heads, food and clothing, water and electricity, churches and schools. We pray for Your healing for those who are emotionally and spiritually hurting and need physical healing. Lord we pray that You will stop the spread of Covid-19 and all infections among the people.
We pray for the first responders who are the medical workers, the firemen, the FEMA support workers, the clergy, the social workers, the engineers, architects rebuilders and administrators. Help we pray the officials to be efficient and to rebuild quickly the electrical, water, houses and other infrastructures. We ask for wisdom and creativity to rebuild strong and sturdy structures and irrigation to mitigate the impact of future typhoons.
We ask all in Jesus’ powerful name and give You thanks for protecting and saving many lives during this hurricane. Amen.
