Volunteer to Help

Pray for those affected by Hurricane Laura, specifically for the families of the six people who died, for those who lost homes or businesses, for those who will spend hours restoring things to normal. Pray for those who assist in the recovery as well, that they will stay safe while helping. Pray also for the churches affected by the hurricane, as we know of many with serious damage. Pray for these congregations as they plan for meeting temporarily and as they look ahead to restoring or rebuilding their place of worship.
