Under Fire

Although I am now in Colorado, my prayers are right in the big middle of this tragedy. My heart goes out to those that have lost livestock and their homes or barns. May you find strength that only the Lord can give.

Fort Davis, Texas

Let’s all pray right now.

Dear Lord,

In this time of need, may your grace be bigger than the fires and your mercy be as welcome as the rain that you will send their way. Though these fires may demolish land, livestock, and property, it will never be able to extinguish the love we have for you and the love we have for our neighbors down there.

May you especially bless those that are fighting the fires in the drenches and the ash. Lay the peace that you’ve promised on the hearts and souls of those that are waiting for these brave men and women as they risk their lives by helping others.

I pray strength and guidance to those people that are fighting right alongside these good folks by organizing the things that they need to do their jobs.

Lord, your awesome might and power will be revealed soon when the quenching rains wash away the soot and replace it with green grass that will signal the birth of a new time and place.

In your holy name I pray,

Amen
