HURRICANE FLORENCE THREATENS EAST COAST

Pray for all who are in the path of Hurricane Florence, especially those who don’t have the financial or physical means to adequately prepare for the storm. Download our guide to pray in agreement with other intercessors: Praying God’s Word in Times of Crisis.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)

 

Americans who reside on the East Coast have been instructed to thoroughly prepare of an enormous hurricane which is headed their way. The category four hurricane, Florence, is set to hit North and South Carolina on Thursday, and is likely to affect millions.

President Donald Trump issued his own warning on Twitter Tuesday, noting that his advisers had just informed him that Florence is likely to be “one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years.” . . .

North and South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland have all declared states of emergency ahead of the mammoth hurricane, which is likely to wreak havoc later this week. The governor of South Carolina, Republican Henry McMaster, has ordered the evacuation of the state’s entire coastline to be evacuated starting at noon on Tuesday, predicting that some 1 million people are set to flee their homes. . . .

Florence, which is currently situated over the Atlantic, has sustained winds of about 140mph (220km/h), with around half a meter of rainfall expected in some areas. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has warned that Florence could reach Category 5 status before it makes landfall around Wilmington, North Carolina. “Some strengthening is expected during the next 36 hours, and Florence is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane through Thursday,” the NHC warned, as reported by CNN, adding that “there remains high confidence that Florence will be a large and extremely dangerous hurricane, regardless of its exact intensity.” . . .

“We are just going to do everything we can here to get everything secure as possible and then give the rest to God and see what happens,” one Wilmington resident told CBN News. Chaotic scenes have been noted in the city’s hardware and grocery stores, as residents frantically stock up on essential supplies to secure their homes and feed their families.

HOW BIG IS HURRICANE FLORENCE?

The sheer power of Hurrican Florence is striking fear in the hearts of many residents, and for good reason. This storm is like unique on several different levels, giving it a distinctly beastly nature which some have likened to the devastating 2005 storm, Hurricane Katrina. . . .

He added: “The same type of surge we see in every land-falling, major hurricane like Katrina, like Hugo, like all of the big storms that push water on shore.” . . .

Marshall also made a terrifying comparison between Florence and last year’s devastating hurricane, Harvey, which claimed the lives of 82 people and caused billions of dollars worth of damage.

“Unfortunately, it looks like it’s going to have a one-two punch like we saw with Hurricane Harvey in 2017. You’re going to have a major hurricane make landfall and that’s bad enough, but then it looks like, based on what I’m seeing from the models, the storm may stall and literally sit there and spin for a couple of days. That’s a recipe for a flooding disaster, particularly since much of the area that will be impacted is already quite saturated. So I think two to three feet of rainfall is not out of the question if this thing stalls for some parts of the area,” he explained.

The hurricane expert also noted his concern over a largely overlooked natural disaster risk: landslides. . . .

This is going to be a big one. Take as many safety precautions as you possibly can, and ensure that you and your family are well-protected from the elements. Finally, do pray for all those who find themselves in the path of this fierce storm! (Excerpted from Faithwire.com, reporting by Will Maule.)

  1. Heavenly Father, We know You are our ALMIGHTY GOD. You parted the river for the Israelites to walk through on dry ground when You delivered them from Egypt. Jesus rebuked the wind and the raging waters of the storm when he was out in a boat with His disciples. The storm subsided and all was calm. Father, we know You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. We rebuke this hurricane named Florence in the Name of Jesus, & we tell it to turn around, go back out into the ocean and disappear forever. Thank You, Father, for hearing our prayers and giving your people authority here on earth. Thank You for angelic protection for all of those who are on the roads leaving areas of concern. Thank You for Your love and mercy on us. Amen.

  2. FATHER IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST WE ASK FOR A HEDGE OF PROTECTION AROUND THE WHOLE AREA OF THE EAST COAST THAT MIGHT BE AFFECTED BY THIS OR ANY STORM OR DISASTER. FATHER WE PRAY THAT YOU PLACE YOUR ANGELS AROUND OUR CITIES AND STATES AND WE PRAY THAT THIS STORM WILL BE DIVERTED IN STRENGTH, IN INTENSITY AND IN THE FORECAST THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO IT FOR DEVASTATION AND DESTRUCTION. WE PRAY THAT NONE OF THE FORECASTS OR PREDICTIONS WILL COME TRUE. WE WORSHIP AND PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME! WE PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU LORD. IN JESUS CHRIST HOLY NAME WE PRAY AMEN!

  6. Father God, I pray for those in the path of Hurricane Florence. I pray that they would have a safe evacuation and I pray that You would provide the financial means to prepare for this storm. Lord God, I pray that Florence would weaken in strength and that the damage would be minimal. I pray for the leaders of North and South Carolina as well as the federal leaders and President Trump, that You would grant them wisdom in dealing with this storm. I pray in Jesus Name, amen.

  7. Lord we ask you to send your angel armies counter the circular direction of Florence to dwindle the power,intensity and direction of this storm. Bring protection, provision and your presence to calm and direct those who will be affected in any way by Florence. Give this especially to those who govern and lead in the south east as well as to the President and his Federal responders. Protect those who are evacuating and open your peoples hearts to help.
