California Wildfires
For all of the victims of this tireless fire.

Since the weekend the wildfires have destroyed many homes and lives and displaced hundreds of thousands of people. Join us as we pray for all of those affected.

Heavenly Father

Thousands of California residents have been displaced due to the wildfires. While I am thankful that many have found refuge in the shelters, I ask that you would return them to their homes soon. In the meantime, I pray that you would comfort residents in this hour of uncertainty. Help them to remember that all is not lost and that you are the great restorer. For every firefighter trying to save homes and people, I pray that you would protect them. Give them a full measure of courage and braveness for the task ahead of them. Give every government official knowledge, wisdom and discernment to make decisions that will benefit the residents. And God, if it is within your will, I pray that you will send quenching waters down upon the land so that these fires will cease. Bring families back to their homes, firefighters back to their families and California back to normalcy.

Share your thoughts on this tragedy.

In Jesus' Name,

Lord Jesus,
have mercy on these people that can't go to their homes or they are destroyed and send rain to them and
more than anything send your angels to minister to them in the midst of their tragedy. You say ask and knock and your there. The enemy is trying to work overtime on this nation, I pray that they can return to you with humble hearts and live for you. What was meant for bad can be for the good.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that you will put your hands on the community of Southern California, protect those who cannot care for themselves, that others will help those who cannot help the weaker ones. Comfort the children, especially, who are afraid that they might never feel safe again, help them understand that they will someday have a home again. Help put out the fires so the community can rebuild their lives. May the United States Government help all of these people.

In His Name, Amen.

So may it be! Om, Shanti, Amen.
