Hurricane Sandy has brought a tremendous amount of destruction across the northeastern United States, especially in the Tri-State Area of New York/New Jersey/Connecticut.  This area, as well as the area stretching from DC to Boston, and inward through West Virginia and Ohio has experienced an array of weather conditions including blizzard-like snowfall, heavy ice, flooding, down power-lines, toppled trees, missing roads and structures. All of this yields for many, no power, no heat, dangerous conditions and surely many injuries and even death.  Please begin to pray for each of these people that have been affected..  Many can be saved through these times, and many need strength, not only to survive, but to be the Body of Christ during this time.  Pray for those that are helping others, pray for safety, strength, salvation, and brotherly love.  Continue to pray for at least 3 days, but let us not forget the tragedies that are happening in people’s lives as we read this post.

Father in heaven, we pray now for your people that have been stricken by this massive storm. We see the power of your all-mightiness and we stand in awe.  Lord we know that you tear down and you build up, we pray now lord God that your healing and strengthening is fast on it’s way to those that are suffering as we pray right now. Strengthen your body as they tend to the injured, guide those that are lost, that they might find salvation, lead us all into the truth of your scripture that we may know that even in this destruction, you are the light and you can do all things.  Please Father God, bring these people through this tragedy and bring all of our eyes upward toward you.  Thank you my Lord in Heaven, In Jesus Name we pray..  Amen.

 

After prayer and meditation, take a look at:

I do not believe that God has given up on our country. He did not give up on Ninevah (Jonah 3). He was willing to save Sodom if there were even ten righteous men there (Genesis 18:32).

There are two things that I am going to begin praying for daily and I invite you to join me. If Jesus is Lord of your life, I invite you to share these prayer requests with your friends and family.

1. I pray that Jesus will make it obvious to all who are the sheep and who are the goats in Congress (Matthew 25:31-46). There are too many wearing sheepskins to cover their goathides. I also pray that he will raise up sheep to take the place of the goats in governing this country.
2. Isaiah 6:1-4 I pray that God’s glory will fill our country and be revealed to the world. I pray that his glory will shake the doorposts and thresholds of the Capitol Building.

Bret Lane is the brother in law of a very close friend.  He has Cron’s Disease and is now in ICU with a stomach full of infection.  The doctor’s feel he may not make it, but he can make it with the help of God.  Let us pray for him and ask God that if it is in His will, that he will survive, so that if he is in need of salvation, that his family may bring it to him.

Thank you very much.

My daughter, Kimmy, has gone into labor a month and a half early.  Please pray for her and the baby boy, as his lungs may not be quite developed yet.  I am not certain if she is going to give birth tonight or if they are going to be able to slow the contractions and prolong the birth.  She is 3 cm dilated and was rushed to Savannah Memorial Hospital late tonight, her husband, Jeff is meeting her there.

Thank you,

-Scott and Patty

Joe Duby, started out with rectal cancer, moved to the pelvis, now to the liver. thought they got rid of it all, but apparenty not. He has a colostapy bag and cath,currently he is in Good Sam as I write this for more chemo. Has hole in bladder.

Prayer is requested by his sister and himself.

Please pray for him, his sister (Jeanette Duby) and the family..

Thank you.

UPDATE:

via Jaenette’s Facebook:

To all who prayed for us, Joe went to be with the Lord tonight(9-16-2009) at 6:25pm on his birthday, how appropriate. He and mom were alone. I had just left 15 minutes prior so it was just the two of them together in the end as it was in the beginning of his life 40 years ago today. Thank you for all the support, please continue to pray for our family.

There is a little boy named Thomas, that is only 7 yrs old and is in very bad health.  He will be needing a heart and lung sometime in the near future, but he struggles everyday.  His family is also struggling as a result.  Please pray for him, and his family, and that whatever is in God’s will be done.  This may indeed be something the Lord is using to bring that family closer to Him and to Glorify His name.

—Thank you

Jesus, it is in my hour of need that I see Your powerful provision in my life. When I am in need of comfort, You are my Comforter. When I am in need of courage You go before me. When I am in need of friendship You are my friend that sticks closer than a brother. When I am in need of stability You are the Anchor for my soul. When I am in need of finances You own the cattle on a thousand hills. When I am in need of peace You are the peacemaker. When I am in need of food You are the Bread of Life. When I am thirsty You are the living water that leads to eternal life. You are my Shepherd and I shall never be in want of anything. Thank You for meeting every need I have. Amen.

THE CALL CALIFORNIA

November 1, 2008

Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, CA

10am – 10pm

In 1946, Franklin Hall launched a fasting and prayer movement out of San Diego with a book called Atomic Power With God Through Fasting and Prayer……Therefore, we are summoning believers from all across the state of California and the nation to gather for a Joel 2 moment. When there is no remedy, when there is no natural hope, God still has a holy prescription. Blow the trumpet in Zion, gather the people, and call a fast. Let the believers of this great state gather and cry out to God believing that California could become the flash point of real change in America not the open door to societal collapse. Let us return to the fasting praying womb in San Diego and seek the face of God on November 1st, 2008 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. …
