Please Pray for California

This is an prayer request for our Sunny Susan and Denise over at Edge of Design.
I know there are more out there in California who are concerned about the fires burning.
I got an email from Susan this afternoon. Here it is.


We had to mandatory evacuation yesterday at 330....us the dogs and a few pics and the clothes on our backs...thats it
We are in Orange Co. now in a hotel...so we are safe.....the house...I don't know....
So prayers are appreciated....thanks


So I would like us to step up to the plate and start calling down some rain from God.
We know that there is power in prayer and power in numbers. As you can see some of our blogging sisters live in the effected areas.

After going through the mess after Katrina -I don't want anyone to have that stress and that loss. If you are from this area and would like prayer post your name and we will add you to our list to pray for. We love you. More importantly so does our Father.

Dear God
We are concerned for our family-Your children--and those who will soon come to know you as their Father. I know you know what is going on in California. The smoke from the fires are seen by your eyes. The tears of those who have lost much are held in your hand.
God, I ask that you give wisdom and protection to the men fighting these fires.
God I ask that you would send rain. God that you would open the heavens so that your people would be protected. Bring an end to what man says will only get worse.
Thank you for your loving heart and your tender mercies aimed at your people.
We love you.
We trust in you.
Be our defender.

We studied this in school today and when I read it, I thought of you.
"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost (Matthew 18:12-14)."

Joining you in prayer....I had to start praying for rain here in Atlanta, it was so bad. But not as bad as California it seems. My sister lives not far from there. Lord, please stop the winds and bring the rain so desperately needed.
