Emergency Prayers: American Is Being Pelted From East to West

 I do hope everyone has noticed that the United States is being pelted with disasters from East to West.  As reported in the news this week, surely you know that rivers and streams continue to overflow their banks, destroying hundreds of homes and businesses throughout the East Coast, that dozens of people are stranded, cut off from mainlands, with little food or fresh water and no electrical or cooking power, that hundreds of thousands more are without power, etc.  And now new reports today tell of  wild fires rage away, burning homes to the ground, in Texas and Oklahoma.  Natural disasters multiply around us––hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, droughts, etc.––and still more hurricanes are forming in the southern Atlantic Ocean and may be headed this way.

 As President of the International Association of Truth Telling Women Journalists (IATTWJ), I ask all believers in The Lord Jesus Christ, all IATTWJ members, and the local prayer groups headed by Brothers John and Jude, and other brothers and sisters across the nation, to take out their Christian prayer books and join me in this and other prayers for our nation:  “Dear God, On bended knees and with tears in our eyes, we ask You to forgive the ways that we, as believers in the United States have sinned against You.  We have not loved one another nor prayed for one another as we should;  and we certainly have not prayed for our nation, and its leaders.  Nor have we forgiven one another.  We have not prayed for the lost, nor have we earnestly asked You for Your kind of true revival in our homes and churches.  Instead, we have walked the pathways of this world, and now we, and our nation, are paying the backsliding piper.

 “Father, in 2 Chronicles 7: 14, Your Word says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  Father, we do humble ourselves now, and we earnestly pray for the people stranded in Vermont, New Jersey, New York and other states, as well as for those in danger’s paths in Oklahoma and Texas.  Please get them to safety, Father.  Please spare life and limb so that we all have new opportunity to serve you in righteousness and truth.  And we pray for the President, his Cabinet, and all members of Congress and national, state and local governments––including, police, national guards, rescue workers and first responders––that you give them safety and wisdom.  In the Holy Name of Our Only Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ,  we pray.  Amen.
