Prayer, Plain and Simple

An earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 hit the American Samoan islands earlier today. This earthquake triggered three 5-foot tsunamis which caused damaged and killed an undetermined number of people. Hawaii is currently on tsunami watch. Please join us in prayer for the victims of the American Samoa tsunami and those in Hawaii.

Heavenly Father,

We pray that you would protect your people in Samoa and in Hawaii. While there has been some structural damage and there have been lives lost on the American Samoa island, none of this is far from your hand of restoration. I pray that you would restore the damaged portions of the island to better than they were before. Breathe life into that which was claimed for dead. Regenerate the faith of those who may be losing their faith right now. Be a comforter to those who have lost their loved ones. Be an encourager to those who are in Hawaii hoping for the best, but preparing themselves for the worst. I pray that they would fear nothing and be anxious about nothing, but in everything, through prayer and supplication, let their request be made known unto you and may you, the God of peace, keep them in perfect peace and safety. You are the God of all creation. Rest, rule, and abide in the hearts of the people that they may fear no evil, nor natural disaster than threatens to come upon them. Heal your land. May all hearts turn toward you in prayer.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
