On Our Hearts: Praying For Haiti Day Five

This week we are dedicating our blog to the people of Haiti. Among the heartache and devastation we are praying for those dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake. Join us as we lift up the Haitian people and the rescue workers.

Heavenly Father,

We ask that we not forget about the Haiti people and their needs. Now that some time has passed and the earthquake is no longer the headline in the media, we need to remember that they are still in desperate help for our resources and prayers. We ask that the flood of support continue to flow into that country. We ask that volunteers continue to sign up and assist in the rescue, clean up, distribution, and medical areas. It's easy for those of us who are removed first-hand from the crisis to forget and focus on our own lives. Whether it be our money, time, or prayer it is all crucial to the Haitian people. Father we lift up those who are still physically hurting and ask that medical supplies be abundant to treat all the wounds. We ask that food and water supplies be replenished for the hungry and thirsty. And Lord we ask that order and peace return to Haiti as the rebuilding process begins. Father we know that You have not forgotten Your people, let us not forget as well.


"' Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the Lord who has compassion on you." Isaiah 54:10
