Prayer regarding Hurricane Isaac

Image     LORD GOD, we are thankful that Hurricane Isaac is not the same as Hurricane Katrina….but Lord, still in our hearts, we cry out, “again?!?!”  Lord, using virtual technology as our vehicle, many of us stand together united in prayer from coast to coast and even around the world.  Lord, have mercy on the Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi coasts.  Have mercy on all regions in the path of this tropical storm/hurricane.  You are the One with the power.  You allow the intensity of each storm.  Lord God, we ask for mercy…. Lord God, we pray in one accord. Holy God, we praise Your name.  All in heaven adore You and we, Your remnant, adore You as well. We know You are the Source. Lord God, even as we thank You that this is not a repeat of Katrina, we ask you to reduce the winds of Isaac and not increase them.  Lord bring the rain, but not the floods or storm surges.  Let these be less than expected.  Let the reduction be a surprise gift from You.  We stand together in the gap before Your throne and ask You instead to bring a healing, cleansing storm which represents a break in the physical and spiritual drought of this nation and brings the ushering in of sufficient water (and the Living Water) to the areas of the USA which have been parched and struggling with lack of water. Lord God, by Your power may the water (and Living Water) flow in perfect measure especially into the Heartland of this nation and the land of our hearts – turn us toward You! Lord God, by Your mercy, wake up this nation not by destruction, but by a holy cleansing which is the beginning of true restoration and preparation for Your great Kingdom harvest for this generation. Thank You that You are a God who hears our every prayer and answers perfectly.  We wait in great expectation for Your grace-filled, loving, perfect response.  In Jesus’ name, Amen

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth

  1. Thank you, Lord.  We pray in agreement.  Thank you Holy Spirit for sharing this word so we can pray together.  In the name of Jesus we present this request to you, Our Abba Father.

  2. Dear Friend,

    Heart-felt and God-sent. I just forwarded this to my brothers and mother-in-law. My brother Bryan lives outside of Baton Rouge in Zachary. Just got a text from him that it could be rough today. He solicits prayer.

    I tuck you into my time with the Lord each am. He’s still bringing you to himself in joy, that you would receive his joy.

    With Heart Margaret
