Prayer for all in the path of Hurricane Sandy (a rare hybrid storm) ...

    Faith Reaperposted 4 years ago

    I do not know if this is a proper way to address this, but I am making a plea for a call to prayer for all those affected in this most dangerous storm's path (many here on HP, our friends, i.e., Colin a.k.a. Epigramman, Joseph De Cross, a.k.a. Lord De Cross, Mary (tillsontitan) from NYC and many others).  I am claiming all of His promises in Psalm 91 and praying Psalm 91 for protection over all.  Please pray with me!!!  Experts say this is a rare hybrid storm of Hurricane Sandy, meeting up with a winter storm and also a coldfront.  It will affect over 800 miles of the East Coast to the Great Lakes.  NYC is shutting down its mass transit system.  I am making a plea to all . . . if you are in an area that is being evacuated, please evacuate.  Associated Press just stated, "If you don't evacuate, you are not only endangering your life, you are also endangering the lives of the first responders who are going in to rescue you. . . In a situation like this, you don't want to be overly panicked, but do need to be prudent."  Let us all join together in prayer for protection over all.  There is power in numbers when praying without a shadow of a doubt.  I love you all and I will continue to pray without ceasing.  Power may be lost over the next days, and the rest of us will be in limbo not knowing, but I know and trust in the Lord and I lift all up to Him for He is a shelter and our strong tower in time need!  We have been through these type of devasting storms in southern USA and know of their devastation, but I know and trust in the Lord too.   In His Love, Faith Reaper

      FaithReaper,
      Joining you in prayer. I surely do remember storms here for the short time I've been in Alabama(just a matter of years).
      How gracious of you, and not surprising at all, that you thought of other people and posted this.

      Standing in agreement with you...and your very well stated prayer. Houston, Texas is my home. Understand how bad it can be....but never had to go through one with a cold front simultaneously! Praying for electric power to be restored to hardest hit areas quickly, for transportation to get back to running normal, for repairs of all kinds to come quickly, for food and water to be sent to all areas in need, for any flooded areas to recede in a hurry, and for everyone to just stay safe and warm until things get back to normal. Prayers.

      Why are you giving people instructions on how to avoid getting injured or killed?  Shouldn't your prayer just cover everyone,  whether they seek safety or not?  Do you really believe your prayers will save lives, or that your instructions will?

    I'm with you, dear Faith.  My BFF, Laura, lives with her family in North Carolina.  I've been listening to the news reports that since this hurricane and the series of coinciding weather factors present are compiling to create an unprecedented event, evacuations are being highly recommended.  I understand that those in its path only have until tonight to make their decision, as beyond that, it will be too late.  I understand that the N.Y. and New Jersey transit systems will be shutdown as of 7 p.m.  Storm surges are likely to reach 8' at the coastlines.  Power outages are likely to affect 60 million people, with repairs possibly taking weeks.  Believe it or not, in addition to a deluge of rain creating flooding, tremendously destructive winds, now I hear that the warm air of the storm meeting the cold east coast air may produce up to 20 inches of snow!  These are all just speculation at this point, but forecasters are classifying the consequences as dire. 

    Thank you for your compassionate invitation to join in praying for those in the path of what yet remains unknown, but carries the possibility of enormous grief.

      Hi Faith, THANK YOU for your prayers.  My husband and I and our 4 cats,not to mention children and grandchildren are right in its path, we live 200 miles from NYC in the Binghamton area.  We are facing possible power outages, flooding and very high winds.  The stores are mobbed.  We did not get a genarator as we just got back from Lancaster PA...ALL generators are sold out. 

      The grocery stores are mobbed with people buying water, staples, and batteries are gone, except for the little ones.

      Our cellar leaks, and we are okay as long as we can use the water vac, but if we los power, that's another story. 

      My sister and I are praying in the name of Jesus that this storm does NOT take the turn the weather people are predicting...that God moves the storm out to sea.  My niece lives in New Jersey, and my cousin in NYC. 

      I am praying for ALL those in the path of this storm.  They said on the weather channel this is the greatest storm of this generation.

      We had horrible flooding a year ago here.  But God is in control.  It is a moment by moment dependence on God...THANK YOU for this prayer post, Faith.  Blessings, Sparklea

          THANK YOU FAITH.  Winds REAL BAD NOW.  PRAYING for no power outages, raining hard.  My husband bought a generator, praise the Lord, not hooked up...it would provide light but no heat, but very thankful.  I read that over 765,000 are without power so far.  Praying for everyone in the path of this horrendous storm.  The governor of New York has declared a state of emergency, no one is supposed to be on the roads at all.  Blessings, and THANK YOU EVERY SINGLE PERSON FOR YOUR PRAYERS SO VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.  WILL STAY IN TOUCH IF WE DON'T LOSE POWER.  SPARKLEA smile

            Praise God, you are safe and you were able to get a generator!!!  Yes, I know for sure in NJ, they are without power.  Yes, we will pray about your power, and praise Him your husband was able to find a generator!  I pray you have a fireplace to stay warm as this strange hybrid storm is a rare combination of hurricane, winter storm and coldfront all colliding together.  PRAISE GOD YOU ARE SAFE AND WE KNOW HE WILL CONTINUE TO PROTECT YOU AND ALL AS WELL, AS WE ARE ALL CLAIMING HIS PROTECTION OVER YOU AND ALL IN THE AFFECTED AREAS!  Thank you for letting us know of your safety, and please continue to do so when you are able and if your power does go out, as soon as it returns, please let us know you are safe.  God bless.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

              Hi Faith: UPDATE: one of my wonderful Christian hub friends (YOU are, too) told me that he, in the past, had "sent a storm away" through prayer.  So my sis and I agreed, in the name of Jesus, to "send it away'...neither of us take ANY credit...however, when I woke up this morning, I learned that the state of emergency had been lifted, the high wind warning is now just an advisory...I even took my morning walk without need of an umbrella!  No flooding expected!  I think I have thanked God a million times!  Yet, my poor cousin in NYC is on the 8th floor of an apartment with NO POWER.  Praying for ALL THOSE affected.  I have no explanation for these storms, but God is in control.  I want to thank you and all my hub friends for your prayers.  I will email you within the next couple of days.  GOD BLESS and THANK YOU!

                He was obviously lying or mentally disturbed.



                Meteorologists do have explanations for storms and they don't ever invoke God as the reason.

                And, if God was in control, why did innocent people die?

                  To A Troubled Man:  I am unable to answer your question.  I never ask God why...about anything.  Years ago I did, but I no longer do.

                  I wrote a hub titled, "The Greatest Pain And The Greatest Peace."
                  I have concluded (this is just MY opinion) that the greatest pain is loss and the greatest peace is acceptance of life as it is...and trusting God throughout.
                  That being said, I can only say that I see God in everything, good or bad, and I stand on my dependence on Him. 
                  I believe every single word in the Bible.  God gave me life, and He takes life away.  We are all headed in that direction.  The Bible states "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away."
                  All of the above is my personal opinion, not a debate or an argument.  I totally respect and honor the way others feel about everything.
                  Thank you for your input and feedback.  I truly appreciate it.  Sincerely, Sparklea

                    God bless you dear one.  Yes, this is a plea for prayer not a discussion on whether or not God exists or the effectiveness of prayer, not a debate either of our beliefs, just a request for prayers for those who are hurting.  If one wants to have a forum on such other issues, then they should go from this forum and have one on such.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

                  "No one said there was a solution.  Sometimes the only way to survive is to take evasive maneuvers (sic).  Praying is childish nonsense."

                  To all the religious folks here, I apologise for my non theist colleague's crass and insensitive comments. Sometimes I really really wonder how low people can go.

                  Anyway my own message to people affected here is that I'm not the praying type, but I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound, and that you can recover from this devastating storm. You are in my thoughts, and I'll do my best to help in any practical way I can. Stay safe. Best wishes.

                    Are you serious? This OP is filled with crass and insensitive comments and is nothing more than a soap box for those to preach their gospel and to insult those who died. How can you possibly defend that?

                    Although I left the forum, because of the fact that I understand the mental illness that religion imposes upon its victims, I needed to return to defend myself against this nonsensical and unwarranted criticism of my position.

                    Don, No one is being insensitive toward the victims of this tragedy.  This is a tragedy, I feel badly for the victims.  I am no less compassionate about the plight of these victims than the religious fanatics here.  I, however, know that prayers does nothing, and is a form of psychosis.  It seems that people like you are willing to enable these fanatics on their journey into madness.



                    How magnanimous of you to assert your superior morals, however, baseless your claim.   Again, I join with good people everywhere, in having hope that these victims will find some relief.  I will do what I can to help.  I, myself, was hit by the storm.  My brother lives in NJ, and I talked to him last night.  His house is flooded, and he has to share a generator with his neighbor, just to have temporary power, however, praying for him will do nothing but insult him.

    Hi Faith Reaper.
    I will first thank you for the prayer.
    Not just for those people that live in those areas that seem to get it each year, they have a lot of courage.
    I give thanks to you and pray for a family that are on their first holiday in many years. Namely my son and his wife with their three children (grandchildren). They had a flight on Friday from the UK to Orlando for 2 weeks. The only good thing is "No news is good news". I'm not to sure how the storm is at the moment. I've seen that NY is getting ready for it, so does that mean it has past Florida??? Here's hoping.

    Well it seems that  your prayers didn't work at all.  Here where I live, the storm hit last night with a destructive force.  Many people are without power, and roads are flooded.  Can't you people see just how childish and silly it is to try to pray something away?

        Or these praying hubbers should just send cash or supplies, or their time, since prayer obviously doesn't work.  Put simply, prayer is a way of pretending to help, while doing absolutely nothing.  How noble!...?

            It's doing just as much as prayer, which does absolutely nothing.  While believers fool themselves into believing they have some kind of magical powers, reality goes on around them, proving their prayers to be silly childish whims or wishes.  What a USELESS way of pretending to help...in this serious situation!

    Please be mindful that the purpose of this forum is to request prayer for all affected by the devastion in the path of this storm.  Of course, there will be loss of life, devastation and hurting people when there is a disaster.  When our nation has had such disasters in the past, people pray and come out in droves and come together to help one another like never before. Here, in the south, we had devasting storms like none ever seen before just last year, and people came together in prayer and in action, as of course people were hurting and needed a helping hand, which I know will happen here.  We, the people of this great Nation, will come out and give a hand and help others like never seen before. Those who have lost loved ones or are hurting, need our continued prayers.  I will not be home until after 6:00 p.m. to comment any further, and I am not sure if this comment will even go through.  Once agin, please do not come on this prayer forum, if you do not wish to participate in prayer.  That is fine.  The purpose of this forum is to pray and especially now, continue to pray. Thank you so much, and please respect the purpose of this forum here.  God bless.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    My friends and family in the storm area are seeing some relief from the storm's wrath, but still without electricity.  They are making the best of the situation.  The post storm activities will include clean up and restoration, this is the time when they also will need to be covered in prayer.  Many times unforeseen dangers exist and cause further complications.  After hurricane Wilma in 2005, many people were injured (and worse I'm afraid) due to traffic lights out, flooded areas, looting and loss of shelter.  Praying for all and knowing that God will provide.

    Many were blessed. This could have been so much worse in life loss. Yes our prayers are still needed and let's pray for the unbelievers too, for God's hour is near and there will be no more opportunity for those. The knock is at the door. It is a very exciting time and may our prayers go out for revival in the world to bring many in before that day comes. Death for believers is simply walking through one door into another. No damnation and no judgement, in this life or the next.

            Oh my, Faith Reaper, your prayer and all the loving prayers of other hubbers who have been responding to it really touched my heart.
            The destruction in Sandy's wake, particularly in my neighboring state of NJ and in NYC, is terrible, and sadly some lives were lost, but there weren't  nearly as many deaths or injuries as could have occurred so I do believe prayers for protection have been helpful and thank you so much for leading this one.
            Up until a few hours before landfall, Sandy was looking like it was going to make a direct hit in my home state of DE, but we were spared the brunt of Sandy's force and our beaches, though flooded, did not experience the devastation that our poor neighbors have endured. I too, have been praying for everyone that was and still is being effected.
            May God watch over all of us as the many people and states that are affected go into recovery mode.

                    No, He was bringing attention to the those ignoring the situation, which He often does, and in Revelations vows vengence on those who in their hearts (whose depth of darkness is so deep within that others cannot see it plainly on earth in the material world) will be faced with their own countenance face-to-face in the world to come.  The dark secrets of the heart always manifest as "guilt" and manifested guilt reveals itself in the hate you demonstrate here in this forum.  Those projections will manifest themselves as projections of the "self" reflected back in the world to come.  That is the hell.  Revelations is about the unconscious and the spilling of unconscious contents that were never faced in the life lived, like the feelings of hate or guilt we harbored towards others.  But I ask, if you do not believe in God and have the conviction in your heart of His non-existence, why would you even be moved to write on this forum?  That people live in the hope of something greater in this life and beyond, why does it perturb you?  Have confidence in your unbelief and demonstrate that courage of unbelief by leaving those you deem more lowly than yourself alone.  Why not?  Be a proud atheist and have the courage of your convictions.  It should not matter to you at all - if you have such a conviction - that others believe in something you do not.  Rather, your rude commenting demonstrates a hatred that reveals a "guilt" or some other manifestation.  Don't you agree?  I mean, if someone believes in a God that you regard as nothing more than a Santa Claus, so what?

              Obviously, those prayers were not helpful for those who died or for the losses due to destruction. By stating prayers for protection have been helpful, you insult in the worst possible way those who died and their grieving families and friends. Absolutely shameful to say such things, have some respect.

                Dearest "A Troubled Man" you have been on HP for 15 months and have not published one hub.  It is evident of what your purpose of being here is on HP.  God bless you, as do seem to be a very troubled man.  Once again, this is a prayer forum for those who desire to pray.  This would be a great time for you to write a hub of your own on what it is you want to say or have a forum of your own, since you have not published one thing here in 15 months. I am sure you would receive many comments on your own forum or hub.  I will pray for you each and every single day until my last breath on this earth. This is not a forum to discuss each others' beliefs, but simply a plea for prayer for those who really desire to pray.   Go in peace dear one.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

                  A worthy post as to first noted sentence.  As to second noted sentence, I am positively amazed that there are people out there that think that wishing for something will actually make that something happen. Ya got to go out there and make it happen; simple as that. This is reality; not fantasy land.

                  Anyway... I shall try to not post here again...

      This is a forum for those who really desire to pray.  If you desire to have a forum to discuss another issue, please do so.  I am sure we and many more are giving whatever they are able in addition to prayer, as always when there is a terrible diaster.  This country does come together and we all get out and lend a hand to one another in time of great need.  We have been through terrible storms down here and we have all united in prayer and in giving and action to help one another.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    Faith you are wonderful putting this in. I have been praying and I have been following through as this awful storm devastated my hometown NYC and my playground Atlantic City. I have been worried about everyone and had a hard time reaching all my friends. Now I just hope that everyone is alright and hasn't suffered too much damage. I have fallen so far behind because of all of this but that doesn't matter what matters is that everyone is alive and well. I still pray this week and I'm looking on FB to be sure everyone is accounted for. Hope you weathered the storm alright. Sending you lots of love and hugs and still praying.

      Dearest Gypsy, I know you have been praying and we all have, and this was not even necessary really, as those who pray, do pray.  I have been praying without ceasing dear one.  I know the Joseph, Lord De Cross, is safe and some other friends here on HP.   I live in southern USA, so we are fine here, but I remember all too well last year when the supercell tornadoes came and caused total devastation here,wiping out whoel neighbors, cities and towns, but we all prayed and all came out to lend a hand to all those who were suffering.  That is how this country does in time of disasters, no matter what our differences, we do come together and unite and help our neighbors like never before.  I know we will all continue to pray for all.  I wll pray for you too dear one, for peace, His peace, that surpasses all understandingwill  just rain down on you, as we lay it all down at His feet.  Lots of love to you too dear one.  God bless you. I have fallen way behind and haven't been able to write anything or hardly do anything as my heart has been so heavy with all of this and just been praying too.  As it is the weekend again, I will try to write something.  Your poem was so beautifully written as always.  Love and lots of HUGS your way.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    If you wish to donate or provide help to those who are suffering:

    The following are some agencies: 

    CARE http:www.care.org;

    Brethen Disaster Ministries http://www.brethen.org;

    National Emergency Response Team http://www.nert-usa.org

    These are just a few, but you may go to the Top 10 Disaster Relief Agencies via the Internest for a complete listing.  All of these mentioned above do help in the aftermath of such storms.

    Thank you so much and God bless.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

          Yes, I know, they have ulterior motives to convert the people they help, however the point is that they are helping others rather than just coming onto forums preaching the gospel and insulting the dead. You'll also notice the Red Cross is one of the agencies and they are not religious based.

        Sorry to see that it was a Christian who has made the first effort. The atheist went on and on saying (and antagonizing) how meaningless it all was that some people prayed for the wellness of others.

        An atheist has nothing practical to offer, except offence. It's the spiritual people who have the courage to come forward to make the first move.

          Actually, it was the Red Cross who made the first move. It was believers here who capitalized on the misfortune of others to preach the gospel.

            "It was believers here who capitalized on the misfortune of others to preach the gospel."

            Well, surely they did. And then they called for donations for the victims of the storm. What did you do, on the other hand?

            Red Cross is one of the many organizations who have come forward for relief. It's a simultaneous move to help others. Religious organizations (like the one that Faith Reaper linked) are always willing to help victims.
