Hurricane Ike

Yikes, I think we need to lift all the people who are in harms way of this horrible storm that is about to hit the Texas coast line.
Pray that the storm weakens and that the damage will be minimal, for safe evacuation to be completed before it hits. Pray for the homeless and the infirm to find safety. Pray for a hedge of protection to surround the police, hospital personal, rescue crews and anyone who is there to help.

Psalm 22:11 "Do not be far from me for trouble is near and there is no one there to help".
Psalm 32:7 " You are my hiding place: you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance".
God is in charge and has a purpose but we as believers are called to pray for those who need prayer. I do think these folks are in great need of prayer!!!

I've been watching the coverage and it sounds pretty bad. I hope the loss of life is minimal.

I'm like Cheri, I've been glued to the tv watching the coverage. I am lifting everyone up in prayers.
