The national weather services are reporting that the majority of the weather prediction models currently indicate that Hurricane Matthew (which is passing through the Caribbean area right now) will follow the entire East Coast of the USA, traveling from south to north.
Haiti is being pummeled by the storm, a tiny nation that shares an island with The Dominican Republic on its eastern half. Haiti, in 2010 was devastated by an earthquake and has yet to even begin to recover economically, in health and sanitation, and in infrastructure. As the storm is moving north beyond Haiti, reports and updates will begin to come out regarding their post-hurricane conditions.
From South Florida to New England, the hurricane is possibly in the next few days going to wreck havoc upon millions of our fellow citizens. Though it typically will lose some of its strength as it finds its way northward, the storm has an incredible amount of energy right now and even several days from now may have enough energy to damage property in New England with its winds and rain.
Please join me (and no doubt thousands of others!) in prayer for Haiti, and for the East Coast of the USA. Let’s pray for God’s supernatural intervention, and despite Hurricane Matthew’s observed and verified power, that it would fizzle down to a breeze and a sprinkle in its effect upon our fellow citizens.
Praying for weather to change is completely scriptural, sprinkled throughout the timeline of the Old Testament and the New Testament. God answered prayers with either a complete weather change, or with complete safety for the people as the storm passed through.
“THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS IS POWERFUL”
“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray… The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.”
~ James 5:13-18
Thank You for joining the ranks of the praying. See you at the altar of prayer!
