Would you please pray for my friend, Angie? Also for her husband, Cameron.
Angie and Cameron are friends of mine. Angie just started breast cancer treatment. She’s a champ and I’m believing she will be healed up before too long. That said, the road ahead promises to be a tough one, in the meantime.
Here’s the blog Cameron set up for her. I hope you’ll check it out. Thanks, friends!
“Certainly praying takes some admissions, that is, recognition of your state as a man. But this admission does not lead to shame, to a feeling of worthlessness or despair, but rather to the discovery that you are a man and God is God.
To pray is to walk in the full light of God. At that moment, conversion occurs, the restoration of the true relationship.
This conversion brings with it the relaxation which lets you breathe again and puts you at rest in the embrace of a forgiving God. The experience results in a calm and simple joy. For then you can say: ‘I don’t know the answer and I can’t do this thing, but I don’t have to know it, and I don’t have to be able to do it.'”
Hurricane Matthew left an incredible path of destruction in many areas during the past week, particularly in Haiti.
Click here to see more images like the one above, from Jérémie, Haiti.
Hundreds of people died in that country. Dozens have died in the United States. It was a powerful storm and the damage has been done.
Now, it’s time to help.
“How can I help?”
For starters, pray. Pray for the safety and health of everyone who survived the storms. Cholera is a growing concern in Haiti and it is hard to say what lies in the debris left behind. Pray that hope will overcome despair and that relief supplies will be made available to the people who desperately need them.
Donate to charitable efforts; just make sure the charity you choose will be spending the money specifically for storm relief before sending the donation.
No doubt there will be mission trips to Haiti to help the people, there. That is something to consider as well.
Thank you to everyone, everywhere who has helped people in the wake of this storm. Praying for everyone in Haiti and all places impacted by Hurricane Matthew. God’s still in control! No hurricane, no anything is bigger than He is.
