prayers for joplin, missouri

it's almost hard to believe all the devastation that is occurring in joplin, mo while the rest of us in california are untouched by these storms. i was driving home from work today and heard on the radio about a 15 year old girl, hannah, who just went thru surgery to remove painful cysts from her ovaries and while she was recovering, her doctor discovered a kidney stone which will need to be removed as soon as she recovers from her first surgery. her father said that she is in great physical pain but as soon as she heard and saw the devastation in joplin, she stopped what she was doing and immediately began praying for the thousands of people that are now homeless and hurt by these storms. she told her father that when she saw the great devastation in joplin her own physical pain went away and all she could do was pray for these people.  she told her father she now knew why God had placed her here on this earth - to be a prayer warrior...to pray for all the hurt and brokenhearted. wow. if we could all be a prayer warrior like hannah, what a different place this world would be.

tonight i read Psalm 46:1-3. i could not have read this at a better time. it is amazing how God provides certain words and verses of encouragement right when you need it. what perfect words to give comfort and hope in these uncertain times.

"God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in
trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake
with their surging."

God is always our refuge and our strength :)

please pray for all those that have been ravaged by this awful tornado and please pray for hannah to heal quickly and completely! <3
