Thanks be to God that the eye of the hurricane is shifted from its destination New Orleans. Last night the governor of Louisiana was requesting the nation to pray for them, as the predictions pointed to doomsday in New Orleans. Sure, millions had joined in prayer and we are thankful that there is a slight change which otherwise could have been more disastrous. Prayer does help. Certainly God is in control.
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.
Last night we were very concerned about 500 residents in a senior care facility who were stranded in New Orleans, because of the facility’s decision a couple of days ago not to evacuate based on the then information they had of the hurricane as category #1. Even as thousands were taking refuge in the superdome, we were very concerned about these seniors. Let us continue to pray that they be safe and secure. Properties can be rebuilt but not lives that are lost.
