In this week since hurricane Katrina hit, so many have lost their lives and for those who have lived...so many obstacles surround their very existence. Dear Jesus, we lift up all those directly affected by this catastrophe. Help people to find their lost loved ones. Help people find the provisions they need. Lead them on, as they are now on a very new and different path than where they were a week ago. We lift up all the rebuilding that needs to happen in the near future. Bring forth Your Everlasting HOPE and refresh us, Lord. Be present to the weary. Let them be comforted. Thank You for the help that is coming in from across the country and all over the world. Help the helpers and enable clear communication to exist among established leaders here. Grant Your gifts of discernment and direction that will be of benefit to all. We seek You in Your mercy, asking for Your blessings. Lord, also remember all the pets that have been left behind to fend for themselves. Pets are often our closest family members, so the loss of their lives will also be yet another significant loss ahead for people to deal with. Bring forth Your gifts, Father God, and open up hearts and minds, that many may be comforted by Your love.
Help us, Lord.
In Jesus Name, we come before Your Throne with our heartfelt prayers and concerns.
