We pray that you keep your people safe as they find themselves in the path of yet another horrible storm. It has been only 3 years since they faced this last. In the meantime they have lost homes, jobs, health and safety and security. We ask that you bless the protection of the levees, that you keep every one in the evacuation areas under your wings, and that you protect the service men and women who are also in Gustav's way.
Be with our sailors and their families. Keep lines of communications open. Lead the government to help in orchestrated and organized ways to maximize the safety of all.
Please be with all who will be watching the storms in the safety of their homes far away from the storms, and put them into action to help others.
We ask this in your name
