Through the week of October 14th please pray for: Victims of Hurricane Michael

Lord, We just lift up those who have been affected by this storm. So many have lost so much, including lives, across the reach of its path. We ask that you lay your hands upon these families that they may know that they are loved by a mighty God and give them peace and hope in You. Only You know all of their needs, and we pray that all of those needs are met. Bless the hands of those who are working tirelessly to help clean and rebuild and do Your work here on Earth. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
