“Rain, Rain Go Away!” – Prayer for the Oklahoma Floods

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Evacuations are under way in some Oklahoma City neighborhoods as residents deal with vicious flash-flooding and scattered power outages. More thunderstorms are heading their way.  Almost 10 inches of rain fell between 2 and 11 a.m. this morning. Another1 to 2 more inches of rain is likely across the region through tonight night, with locally higher amounts. These heavy downpours are caused by what meteorologist call “backbuilding thunderstorms,” a series of heavy rain cores without intermittent periods of let-up.

Let’s pray for folks in Oklahoma. The last few days have seen a torrent of deadly storms in Oklahoma and Arkansas. Let’s ask God for mercy and peace!

“God, we pray for the citizens of Oklahoma City suffering now from flash floods. Keep them safe from harm and give them wisdom and calm to deal with this crisis. Give officials a supernatural ability to make good decisions and to communicate clearly with one another and with residents. We also ask you directly to calm to storms. Stop the rain, Lord. Lift your and of mercy and turn the storms in other directions, into places where the rain is actually needed. Distribute it widely so that all the places that need rain will get it, and those places where they have had too much will have relief. You are the God of storms. You do not cause crisis, but you can step in with calm. And with those who have suffered injury or loss, you can bring something good from this crisis. In Jesus we pray.”

    No?
    Gosh! Then why did Jerry Falsewell say they were?
