When A Storm Hits
When Hurricane Matthew hit Florida in October 2016, I was serving as a missionary in Colombia, South America, far from my grown children (now in their 20s). So “all I could do” was continue praying for their protection while they fled inland with our dog, 2 cats and one memento each from my deceased parents. My eyes were glued to the internet for updates which showed frightening videos of the storm battering our neighborhood. It was easy to imagine that absolutely everything would be wiped out.
I'm convinced this miracle unfolded as a direct result of years spent praying a Prayer of Protection. As I see storms brewing around the world, and especially in the United States, I felt compelled to share this prayer with you.
About the Prayer
The 3-page prayer covers every aspect of your life, from your mind and emotions, to your car, house and workplace. It is certainly not a guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen to you (Jesus said, in this world you will have trouble), but the bible also says we should be wise. Praying the prayer of protection to keep your family safe — as safe as possible in a dangerous world — is one way we walk in wisdom.
