September 2, 2008

September has blown in on our southern coast with gusto. Some people are temporarily displaced, and some have lost their homes or businesses. We also know it’s not over, as new hurricanes move in from the Pacific. Still, it could have been worse. Too often, we forget to give God praise for all He has done. We certainly see His hand at work through care-givers who acted in a timely manner, and we were amazed when the force of the wind was tamed. We now take time to give glory to God for His hand in our lives and the lives of those in the recent storms. We also pray for those who will be hit by the storms to come. The prayers of the faithful are always heard and they are answered in keeping with His plan. Let us praise the Lord for His power, love, and saving grace:

“Our Father, God, Holy is your name. We thank you for hearing our prayers and know you are answering them in keeping with your plan for us and for your people. Give us hearts that feel the concerns of your children, eyes that see their need, hands that reach out to help, and lips that give honor and glory to you and your son, Jesus, our blessed redeemer. Sometimes we are very self-centered and moan that you have not answered our pleading supplications, when, in fact, we were seeking to placate our own interests. We also pray for those who will be entering into their time of trial as new storms approach our coast. We thank you for your blessings, your love, your awesome power, your forgiveness and your grace. In the precious name of your son our savior, Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
