PSALM 91 is an umbrella of protection for such a time as this. Pray this power Psalm over your household. GOD promises to protect those who live in the shelter of the MOST HIGH.

PSALM 91

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Just talked to my family 20 miles west of Shawnee. I didn’t know about the storm and they were just coming out of their storm shelter. I will call back in a little while ans see if there was damage.

All of them need our prayers at this moment.

The damage was incredible. You are right, no politics now, just prayers for all of our brothers and sisters.

Lord hear our prayers and have mercy.

Looks like it’ll miss my Mom and sister as they are in N. Tulsa.

No Tornado can cross the Arkansas river so it’ll be over soon.

Terrible devastation in Shawnee.

Reminds of 1981.

My family is fine, but Shawnee is really in trouble. Threw a semi off of the overpass and ton of other damage.

It actually gets completed by pipes that are already in the ground but, I get the joke.

LOL

Broken Arrow could be tough. There use to be a windshield factory on the north edge. In 1981 the tornado wiped out everything around from Memorial down through Broken Arrow.

Miraculously, the Tornado skip over the plant and I am certain thousands were sparred.

Tornado in Okmulgee/Beggs.

Thankfully my son is home from college or he would have been out taking video of the tornado. (Not majoring in common sense, but then most colleges don’t offer anything resembling it.)

Broken Arrow missed essentially everything. We got a few sprinkles but not enough to even cover the driveway.

Amen.

Shawnee storm tracked about 5 miles south of us. We didn’t have to get in the shelter. It is amazing how accurately they predict the paths of these storms.

How high is the thunderhead that can produce such hail?

Nice that they provided an actual grapefruit for size comparison.
