On this day Father, I pray for those whose lives have been forever changed by natural disasters.
For those in Joplin who are dealing with such great devastation,
For those along the Mississippi who are dealing with the results of flooding and rising waters coming their way,
For those in Alabama and Georgia still dealing with the aftermath of tornadoes,
and for Japan who is dealing with the still silent poisoning of their environment
Please send, through Your Holy Spirit, and through human hands, comfort, rest, food, water, peace, and hope.
Continue to give wisdom to the leaders at all levels and help them to set aside politics and seek the welfare of the communities they have been elected to represent.
With pray all of this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit
