HEAR MY CRY OH LORD!!!




Father God, I come before you on my knees to thank you for my blessings, my family, my home, my church, my friends, my life. Father, I am crying out to you for your mercy on the victims of "Katrina". Father, pour out your love on them, put your arms of protection around them. Father, protect those that have gone to the affected areas to aid in the removal of those left behind and help them find a place to go. Father, I would like to ask you to show us where we truly are needed to help those that have made it to our communities. I pray that You would provide for the needs of those who are now so far away from homes, family, and friends. Father, let them know that they are welcome here. Let them know that we, as Americans, will help them through. Father, bring America to the aid of all of these people. Lord, watch over the children, and give them peace. Father God, there are so many people who want to help, show them where they are needed by their gifts. Allow us as Christians to show who you are to others. Lord let us be the tools of help, love and good will. Lord, open the hearts of all the people living in this great country to come together as a united front, to help as America has come together before. Lord, let this be one of the greatest times for people to come to know You. You are the provider, the Giver of life and the Maker of all creation, it is in your power alone that I pray all refugees will seek You. I pray for those still trapped in their homes, thirsty, hungry and even fighting to survive the water and fires that are now burning in and around their homes. Father, I ask that You would heal the hearts of those who already know they have lost loved ones and be a steady hand when others find out of their loses. Father, help us to help them. Lord, I pray for the looters. I know that some are truly criminal, and I know that some are just trying to provide for their families. I ask that you protect the law enforcement agencies that are going in to protect the properties of others from theft. Lord, I ask that you protect all of the workers that are headed that direction to help get things running again, like the power companies, the phone companies, the physicians, the nurses, and the Red Cross volunteers. Father watch over the people who are going to New Orleans with supplies of water, food and clothing. Father protect those that I know that work with the rescue groups that are headed that way. Show us how we can help those that have made it here and those who are still seeking shelter and support for their families. Lord, help me/us to keep our hearts clear of evil thoughts towards any of these people and remember that no matter what the circumstances behind how, when and where they left, that they are human lives that You created and we should love them as we love ourselves.
The bible says in Leviticus 19:18 (NIV)

18 " 'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.
Lord, I pray that America will remember that a life is more valuable than property or money and stand tall and that they will remember that this country was founded on biblical principles and that our laws were based on the ten commandments. Father, open our hearts and our eyes that we may see the devastation in these families lives and know that we as a whole, can let others know that You did not cause these things to happen but that through your divinity, it was allowed to happen. Father, I pray that people across the nation and around the world will fall to their knees and ask for your mercies and your love.
Father God, all these things I humbly bring before you in the name of your son Jesus. Amen.
