Prayers for Oklahoma

“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop and look fear in the face…we must do that which we think we cannot.” – First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt

Today, we pray for our fellow Americans in the Midwest and, especially those in Oklahoma, who were devastated by a mile-wide tornado that stayed on the ground in excess of 45 minutes, leaving carnage and destruction in its wake. We know at least 51 individuals were killed by this tornado, including 20 children, whose remains lie beneath the rubble that was once their elementary school. We pray for the first responders — for their continued strength, both physically and emotionally — for the families who do not know if their loved ones are among the dead, and for those who lost their homes. There are many links in USA Today┬áthat will lead you to organizations to which you can donate and help your fellow Americans.

In Unity and Strength,
FFYR Leadership
