Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

Praying for Nashville

It’s a tough day in Nashville. The torrential rains that have swept across the Southern States killing 29 people have hit Tennessee particularly hard. The Cumberland River has flooded and submerged parts of Nashville’s historic downtown. Now rescuers fear more bodies will emerge as muddy flood waters begin to ebb.

Let’s join in a pray for Nashville, and for all the areas in the South suffering the outcome of these storms.

“God, the earth is yours. You have made it beautiful and yet at times terrible and fierce. We know that you do not cause such things as this. Your character is love and mercy. We do know however that the laws of nature you have created sometimes release a torrent of destruction and death. At times like this we have to turn to you and call out to you for help and relief and comfort. We pray first for the victims and the families of victims of these floods and storms. God, bring rest and comfort and healing. We also pray for the safety of those still in danger. Rescue them and provide protection. God, we ask that you would calm the storms. The earth sometimes seems to rise up in fury. We ask you to lift your hand and as Jesus did in the boat with his disciples command, ‘Peace, be still!’ Bless Nashville, all of Tennessee and her neighbors today. Give these people confidence, faith, strength and hope. In this stressful situation help them band together and not drift apart. In all this we trust you and worship you as a God who can bring something good out of every tragedy. In Jesus we pray…”

    It breaks my heart to see the pics and hear the stories associated with the city of Nashville, TN flooding. Gives me similar feelings that we had here in Western Kentucky during the ice storm. Prayers for the city to have the strenght to get through this!!

    I feel so bad right now because all my family is in Nashville for the most part. One daughter is in Nashville, one in Gallatin, an my son is living in Clarksville, TN which was also under water. Right now he is serving in Afghanistan with the US ARMY. I moved to Indiana about 3 years ago and miss Tennessee so much. I am from Hendersonville which is also under water. Just know I love you all and I am praying for you. I will try and get there as soon as possible. My heart goes out to all you fellow Tenneeseans.
