As the Americas reel from the destructive force of natural disaster, the words of Esther come to mind. “For how can I endure to see the evil that will come to my people? Or how can I endure to see the destruction of my countrymen?” Esther 8:6
Our nation has suffered an enormous loss of property, life, and safety during this battering. How can I endure seeing the destruction that has come to friends, Friend? How can I endure the destruction of my countrymen?
Esther received a solution and a hope in her situation. She received a reversal of the situation for others and a plan to continue in blessing.
So I pray today and ask you to join with me, Friend,for:
A hope and a peace for all those affected in the aftermath of this disaster.
A strength and an endurance for all pummeled in this storm.
A restoration of property and a sense of security to all those uprooted and whose lives will never be the same.
A reestablishment of life and business and community and neighborhood as quickly as possible.
A sure faith in the future for all that this too will pass and a new day will dawn with new solutions for these communities.
Wisdom and decisiveness for leaders and rescue workers and engineers and those looking to reconstruct and replace and secure.
