Today we keep in special prayer all those affected by recent storms, including Hurricane Irene, and those of the past, such as Hurricane Katrina.
It hardly seems possible that it’s been six years since Hurricane Katrina forever changed the landscape – and the people – of the Gulf area. For them, we pray each day gets brighter, that the flame of eternal hope never extinguishes, that the empty spaces of home and hearth are filled once again and that those whose lives still haven’t returned to normal keep their faith and are surrounded by helpful hands and caring hearts.
Psalm 140:12 - I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.
Psalm 143:8 - Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.
