Heavenly Father, in the mighty name of Jesus and in the powerful place of agreement we pray a hedge of protection for those in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
We ask that you protect them, their families, property and possessions from mighty winds, strong rains and surging waves.
We pray protection and effectiveness for first responders with emergency preparedness.
We know that our faith can move mountains and quiet fears
We rejoice that those who lose electricity will never lose the power of God guiding them.
We ask You, Heavenly Father, to dispatch heavenly angels to encompass, care for and protect all in the path of danger.
Finally, we ask, Lord, for peace, comfort and strength for everyone involved and in the path of this powerful earthly force.
Thank you for all you have done for us, Heavenly Father!
In the mighty name of Jesus, we pray,
2 Peter 3:1-9
1.) This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2.) That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
3.) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4.) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5.) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6.) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7.) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8.) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9.) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
