Pray for Morocco We ask your blessing on all those who have lost their homes, their livelihoods, their security and their hope. Bless the work of relief agencies and those proving emergency assistance. May their work be guided by the grace and strength that comes from You alone.
Prayer for Libya A prayer for those affected by the floods in Libya. Lord Jesus, you’re familiar with grief, you know what it is to weep with those who are suffering. You’re close to the brokenhearted and comfort those who mourn. Devastating flooding has led to losses beyond measure for the people of Libya. With so many thousands affected, help us to see beyond the numbers to real communities and families whose lives have been upturned. We pray that you would strengthen those who are still fighting to survive, and the rescue workers trying to save them. We pray that you would console those who fear the worst as they wait for news. We pray that you would be with all who are traumatised and deeply grieving. Show us, Lord, how to serve you by helping our neighbours in Libya. When we are daunted by the scale of the disaster, inspire us with your Spirit that we may know how to make a difference. We thank you for the work of aid agencies on the ground and for all who give what they can to help save lives and support survivors. You’re close to the brokenhearted Lord. Be close to the people of Libya, we pray. Amen (https://www.christianaid.org.uk/resources/appeals/prayer-libya#:~:text=A%20prayer%20for%20those%20affected,for%20the%20people%20of%20Libya.)

Hello to my holy family. We love you and apologize for our long absence. Both Rick and Eric are still laid off their jobs and as I am typing this Rick is yet at another interview. He has a few more he is looking in to. We are still shopping for a small car that will be better on gas. Rick is driving his Dad's truck which is not dependable and hard on gas. Travis is looking for a car for us too. Hopefully we will find one soon. Rick is also struggling with drinking. This is a sensitive subject but if I can't share with my church family and God there is no one else better. Rick admits he is struggling and wants a job very bad. I am babysitting two sweet little girls. I am so thankful for that. Talk to Lawrence about the trip Greg and Travis will be taking on September 14 to Greece to Mt. Athos. I would appreciate prayers for their safety. Thank you my sweet family and we hope o see you soon.

Please pray for the people of Sudan. The violence started April 15 and hasn't ended. Millions of people are displaced. The country hosts one of the largest refugee populations in Africa and, over the years, violent conflicts have also displaced many people inside the country. Due to the fragile political, security and socio-economic situation in the country, the displaced rely on humanitarian assistance. (from the UN Refugee Agency of Canada website)
