BC-HOP PRAYER ALERT: For our merciful God to protect Yucatan from Hurricane Ernesto

Hurricane Ernesto has accelerated to 85 mph winds and is due to make landfall some 40 miles north of Belize’s border at about 2 a.m. Wednesday. We can thank God that He has answered prayer so far and spared Belize from a direct hit. Now Ernesto is heading to some of Yucatan’s least inhabited regions, so we can pray that it stays on course and that God will have His protective hand over all those in its path.

PRAY WITH US: Father, we thank You for giving all authority in heaven and earth to Your Son Jesus. We thank You that You so loved the world that You gave Him to us, that we may have life now and forever. The enemy comes to steal and kill and destroy, but Jesus came that we may have life abundantly. We thank You for sustaining that life every day, and letting storms come that we may turn to You and receive more of that life. Thanks You for sparing Belize from Hurricane Ernesto. Remind Belizeans and Yucatecans not to take You for granted, but to come to You for new mercies every morning. You love to have us come to Your mercy seat, so here we are now by the blood of Jesus to humble ourselves and thank You for Your ongoing protection. We ask You in faith to extend that protection over Yucatan. Keep Ernesto on course to pass over the least inhabited areas. Let Ernesto to bring healing rains and not destructive rains. In Jesus’ almighty name. Amen.
