Prayer Alert - Hurricane Wilma

Hurricane Wilma is currently the strongest category 5 storm to form in the Atlantic. For the sake of our southern neighbors and also for our friends along the Florida Gulf coast, we need to step up again and pray. I know many are weary with the unfolding trauma. Jesus called these earth events "birth pangs." Even while we pray, let us also be aware: something holy is in the birth canal. Therefore, let us not passively stand and watch destructive events as they occur, but rather let us stand in faith as priests before the Lord. Grace was released during Hurricane Rita and it was far less destructive. Let us intercede that Wilma would rapidly diminish in strength.

Dear Friends, let us kneel before God in humility, in prayer and repentance for ourselves and the sins of our nation. But let us also rise in authority and confidence as we approach the throne of God's grace to find help in time of need.

Francis Frangipane
