On Our Hearts: Praying For Haiti Day One

This week we are dedicating our blog to the people of Haiti. Our hearts are heavy as we think about the devastation and despair that the tragic earthquake has left behind. Please commit to praying with us every day as we lift up the Haitian people and the rescue workers serving there.

Heavenly Father,

We pray for the people of Haiti. We can see the devastation and chaos that is being broadcast on our televisions but we will probably never know the depth of despair that those people are feeling. Lord we ask that You give them hope for a brighter future. We ask that Your people rise up and shine through when others are wanting to give up. Let Your voice be heard in the streets speaking of the good news that comes the hope in Jesus Christ. We pray for the rescue workers as they risk their lives to save those who may have been given up on. We ask that You supernaturally work in their favor to lift rubble and debris. Give them ears to hear the tiny cries that let them know to not give up looking for survivors. We're asking for miracles Lord. Please God be with them, let our prayer be an encouragement to those people who are hurting.


"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me." Psalm 138:7
