Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

Prayers for my Wife's Family and Others

Postby Keith B » Wed Aug 10, 2016 8:36 pm

There was a fire today in a historic commercial building that was owned by my Wife's family. It was built back around 1912 and has been owned by them for over 40 years. It housed three businesses and 6 apartments. Luckily no one was injured in the fire, but the building and contents are a total loss.

Please pray for her family, the business owners and people in the apartments who lost everything today.

Sorry to read this Keith. I've prayed that the Lord will help these folks rebuild what they have lost and that someone Paul describes will come to their aid.

Thanks for the prayers all. I wanted to share a photo taken by one of the local police department Captain's during the fire. The flag is on the front of a little hometown diner across the street from the building. The firefighters were staging in that area and the wind shifted blowing smoke in.

Anyway, God bless the firefighters and God bless America.

Sorry to hear for this loss. Prayers sent to give them strength and resources to rebuild, if that's their wishes.

I'm sorry I am late but probably not . This situation will take time to fix . Don't come here often .

Lord be with them as they try to recover . Guide and strengthen them Lord . Help them in this hard time . In the name of Jesus Christ I ask . Amen
