Prayer Request

Once again, for the second time in as many weeks, a storm is brewing in the Gulf. Tropical Storm Isidore left so much rain last week that the evacuation routes flooded. Thousands were stranded on the interstate. This one now is even stronger, and I am praying hard that it loses intensity before it reaches another heavily populated area.

A prayer for Hurricane path ...

Just put your complete faith in the Lord and He will pull you through this storm. Remember the promise: There will always be a rainbow at the end of the storm, for the Lord has said never again will He destroy the world by water. Have faith and prayers and the Lord will protect you and your loved ones' from the fury of the storm.

The Branson Buddy Prayer Network will be pulling for all Hurricane Path victims and survivors.

Thank you,

thanks so much, and not just from me but from all those who don't even know you're praying.

I've moved everything I can upstairs while hubby is sleeping. Now to convince him we need to head north if the projection continues to come in our direction. . . and to do so before the rains come!

I know we'll be OK, I have faith in that, but in the meantime, my last nerve is frazzled.

Thanks for being here! You're a great bunch of people. And who knows, we might "blow" up to Branson sooner than expected.

I've got my prayers heading skyward......with you in mind, Gabriella.

I was watching the land fall predictions...and its pretty scarey....keep your eye to THE WEATHER CHANNEL...and batteries in your radio. And keep your faith in the Lord.....he has made you stronger than you think.....and that frazzled nerve is just the frizzies.....the roots are good.....))))

Got ya on my mind.....

Hurricane Prayers

My prayers go out for Gabriella, Lisa T and all the folks in Louisiana and the path of the hurricane headed their way. May those who evacuated have a safe trip to their santuary and back home. Hopefully their homes will all be safe and waiting on them to return. For those who stayed behind, may God just put you in his hands and hold you close as this storm passes....

God bless you and keep you during this time of need.........

New Orleans

squeaked by. How, I don't know, but the storm shifted just a bit to the west before it made landfall. We had boarded up our house, packed up our pets and headed to a friend's apartment on the seventh floor downtown. The approaching hurricane was a category 4 and at one point the winds reached 156mph in the northeast segment of the storm (the segment nearest us) making it, for a short while, a cat 5. A 30' wave had been spotted directly behind the storm, which would have meant a terrific storm surge. I saw a few awnings and signs blown from buildings downtown and lots of branches in the streets on our way home, but I personally saw no major damage.

I thank God that the storm's intensity decreased before hitting land and I pray there was no loss of life.

Thanks for the many prayers sent our way.

Lisa T and LALass, please let us hear from you!
