Self

Posted on 05/20/2013 4:49:51 PM PDT by ConorMacNessa



PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH
For All Those Affected By The Catastrophic Tornadoes
in Texas And Oklahoma!



Heavenly Lord, Please Hold Our Brothers And Sisters In Tornado Alley In The Shelter Of Your Healing Wings!
_________________________________________________________________

The Twenty-Third Psalm
Mahalia Jackson
(Click)


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23 -KJV

"O Lord my God and Savior, You rule over all things; You are our physician and comfort in sickness; You deliver us from pain. You stretched forth your hand to save your apostle Peter as he was sinking in water. Grant now your merciful aid to these our Brothers and Sisters and heal their injuries. And as we trustingly call on You, restore them to health in your loving kindness. O long-suffering Lord, show them your compassion and mercy that we may glorify your divine power and bless your holy Name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen."

"Let eternal light shine on them, Lord,
as with Your saints in eternity,
because You are merciful.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them,
as with Your saints in eternity,
because You are merciful."

24 children are now in heaven wrapped in the hands of God. My hearts go out to those who are suffering and to those who were lost on this very tragic day.

I just saw a report on TV which literally took my breath.

Just hope it turns out to not be true. It looks like the worst tornado I have ever seen.

Ping to Salvation and the Canteen!

Prayers needed - I'm listening to the coverage on Fox News - two dozen third-graders trapped in the wreckage of an elementary school - presumed dead. May God have mercy on their souls!

It is so sad - the bodies of some of the children have been recovered, having drowned in the rubble.

Don't know what to say except to lift our prayers to our Dear Lord, our help in all adversity.

We need to give money too. Even ten or twenty bucks.

Many families are going to need a lot of help of all kinds for quite a while..

Especially those with children lost.

Maybe a bank is setting up donation accounts.

I read that. So sad.

All we can do is pray and know that those dear babies are in the arms of our Lord.

Praying for their sweet souls and for God to comfort their grieving families.

I can’t let my mind think about how scared they were.

SO SAD.

My heart is aching over this.

My first cousin lives there, and I managed to reach her on the cell phone today as she was driving her son, D-i-l, and their 2 day old newborn to a hole-in-the-ground shelter.

We prayed together over the phone, but I have not heard from her since about 4:30 EDT.

Prayers for all the precious people of that area. This is horrible.

Yarddog, thank you so much for reminding me of that passage - I just happen to have a graphic for it.

Could be up to 30 children.

There are 37 confirmed deaths from the tornado according to the ME office there in OKC. God rest their souls.

Thank You, Dear FRiend.

The Weather Channel is reporting that cell phone servers are completely jammed because the land lines are down, and people are using their cell phones to communicate.

I don’t want to hinder rescue efforts by using the cell phone, so I will just wait for her call.

God be with those who lost loved ones, especially little ones. Comfort them and give them eyes to see their precious loved ones in the arms of their loving Father. Guide the workers to find everyone. Though we don’t understand why this happened, we trust You to work this out for Your glory. May we be Your hands and loving arms helping in whatever way we can. Amen.

Prayers for those poor families that have lost members. The first one has passed and we have two more tonight. Hopefully they won’t be as bad. We got high winds, hail, and rain but didn’t see rotation. I keep thinking about building a storm shelter out of a shipping container . .

Trying to pray. Every prayer I begin dissolves in a puddle of tears thinking of those children. May the Lord gather our tears as tender prayers on behalf of those who most need them.

Prayers Up. Just got home from work and awaiting local news coverage. It’s always been a comfort to me to think of ourselves as lambs with Jesus finding and saving us.

Mother Nature can be one evil beotch. (We have about 30 tornadoes a year in WI.) How ANYONE can think for even one second that we mere mortals can ‘control’ the weather is beyond me.

Again, Prayers Up.
