“Pray without ceasing,” 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Earlier this week, I felt I knew what I wanted to write and then Hurricane Florence became real. She threatened a piece of me and I just can’t write. I can only pray. I ask you to stop and pray for Eastern North Carolina and the rest of the state as we anticipate her arrival. Prayers also for South Carolina as it appears she will also create havic through this state as well. I ask you to pray not just for my beautiful daughter but for the students she serves selflessly each day. Please pray that God will spare lives. These students have so little and school is their safe place and now school will be an after thought possibly for months. I pray for these communities, the military and emergency personnel that will work tirelessly over this weekend and into the coming weeks. I pray for my son in law who will work around the clock at the hospital saving lives. I just can’t stop praying, pleading for God’s mercy and grace in this moment. There are no words this week just prayers. Please stop and pray with me.
