Hollywood actress Brenda Epperson was in the news recently when her home was almost swallowed up by California wildfires. During moments of terror when she wasn’t sure her home would survive, she prayed Psalm 91 over her home. It became a miracle that her home was spared, and she shared her testimony with fans.

Now, Epperson is fighting nature’s elements once again. This time, it was wind and raid that was threatening her home.

Epperson shared a video on Instagram showing floodwaters rising quickly around her home from heavy rain. Due to the recent wildfires, there was a lack of protection from runoff. Trees that would normally prevent mudslides from happening, for example, had been burned down.

The actress asked for prayers for protection from fans, along with prayers for those whose homes were already effected.

In the Instagram post she wrote, “Waters flooded our creek inches from barn horses okay for now, can evacuate if necessary. Pray for fire areas and homes in way of this raging water, homes near us already flooding. Bless you God be with everyone. #JustBElieve”

Following her initial post, Epperson took to Instagram again to announce that the water had receded.

“UPDATE The water has receded! Thank you for your prayers and love!” she wrote.

“The bridge is still there, which is really exciting news. The creek – the water has come down. There’s tons of mud behind me because the water came up so high,” Epperson explained in her video post.

She was joyful in the video, and appreciative of those who prayed over her.

“Right now we are out of trouble. Thank you for your prayers and your love and just pray for all those that are in the burn areas,” she added.
