Prayer for fires in Australia

February 8th, 2009

Late last night I read an ABC News report and I was shocked to hear that the fires in Victoria has killed six people with the death toll expected to rise. This morning I woke to read that 25 people are confirmed dead and that could rise up to 40.

If you are someone who prays could you please pray for the following…

  • that God would bring favourable weather conditions (including rain) to put the fires out.
  • that God would strengthen and give courage and wisdom to those fighting the fires.
  • that God would help those who have been burnt by the fires to recover.
  • that God would keep safe those families who have decided to stay and protect their homes.
  • that God would comfort the familes of those who have lost loved ones.
