Charge this to my head and not my heart as I sit with a heavy laden heart. Haven’t been in the news, but just saw the news report of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. My mind is reeling. Destruction across the land again has occurred. Roads, homes, bridges, and the lives of many have been destroyed.
The death toll continues to rise after an estimated 10,000 reported deaths yesterday. Towns and villages have been ravaged, people have been displaced. God we desperately need your presence in this place.
“God you are merciful. Send relief to Philippine Typhoon Haiyan victims. Prayer warriors, pastors, clergy, and others, please pray for the survivors and the victims. God please be with each family in the face of devastation who are now displaced because of this tsunami like tragedy. Please keep watch over them. Protect and cover them.
Send fresh anointing. Jesus, cover them from head to toe. Be the light. Be a fence all around them from the top, to the bottom, in front, on side, and below. Father, dispatch your angels. You know every need. Provide shelter, food, water, medicine, and clothing. Supply every need. Through the efforts of volunteers and hidden angels they may not know, let many across the nation be a blessing to the families through seeds sown. May there be an outpour of blessings and abundance of support for all who have been affected. God, guide them to a place of safety. Assure them they are protected. Let God’s shield of faith provide protection. Send comfort, peace, strength, and healing. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”
Nothing can ever compare to an experience like this or for ones who have experienced storms and devastation such as this. While I am not a victim of such, my families were victims to Katrina and I lived through that experience with them. I know what life was and still is like for them. Nor will I forget victims who have been affected by storms, tsunamis, earthquakes, or any other devastating act of nature across the nation. My prayers, as always, are with each and every family across the nation.
For those of you who desire to help the victims in any way or if you or anyone you know has been affected by the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, please find an agency near you to show your support.
God bless! –JD
