I reiterate below the prayer request I just sent out to our prayer group regarding Hurricane Katrina:
I ask that we pray for all those striken by the
Hurricane Katrina on the east cost of the USA. Unknown numbers
are dead and missing. Thousands are without homes, and face
months of homlessness. The bill for repair is coming in at 26 or
50 billion dollars, depending upon whether you watched the early
or the late news. I’m sure you know all this already.
Hurrican Katrina is beginning to look like the US’s Tsunami. Admittedly the
numbers of dead are not in the same league, but the level of
destruction seems similar.
So please let us say prayers for all of those who have died, that
they may make a good transition. For all of those who have lost
loved ones or don’t know where they are – that they may be
comforted, and reunited where possible. For all of those who will
have to suffer night after night without homes, in the midst of a
water-locked land. And for the government, that it will have the
wisdom and skill to deal with the crisis effectively.
