I see so many people that feel helpless as the aftermath of Harvey unfolds. They want to help, but they are literally unable to leave their home. They are stuck. Talking to my dad this morning he reminded my sisters and myself that when people are struck by tragedy, whether dealing with a storm of this magnitude or chronic illness, they need brothers and sisters standing in the gap for them. When their minds are too bogged down with the grief and devastation surrounding them, they need other Christians calling out to God on their behalf.
So if you feel helpless right now – you’re not! Intercessory prayer is so powerful. Call out to God on behalf of your family, friends, and fellow Texans. Ask God to give them strength and hope to endure this great trial.
“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.” – Ephesians 6:18
