Fires in the North

As soon as some of you read the prayer focus yesterday about Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in Texas, a few of you mentioned the fires in the north. The comments were along the lines of, “don’t forget us!” We won’t. Our scripture yesterday was the first half of Isaiah 43:2 about God being with us in the floods. The second half talks about Him being with us in the fire. Parts of Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and parts of California are experiencing massive wildfires that are affecting many people’s lives. We are here with you! You are not alone.

“When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” (Isaiah 43:2b; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. The wildfires in Montana have been blazing for more than a month. Now, other states are burning. Cry out to God for mercy and rain!

  2. Intercede for the firefighters and other emergency responders. These are massive blazes and they are tired. Pray for relief!

  3. Pray for all who have lost homes, property, and animals in the fires. Ask God to comfort them.

  4. Pray for Believers to be bold in their faith now and reach out to the lost and hurting with no hope.

  5. Ask God for sparks of revival across the northwest!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I decree that those in the fire zones of Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California are not forgotten. The tragedy they are facing is a critical need in our nation, as well as the hurricane aftermath. Lord, send help! Send relief for those fighting the fire. Provide for the individuals facing the loss of everything. Don’t let their needs be forgotten or ignored. Let Your people rise up and bring Jesus into the situation near them. Turn the situation against the enemy and let revival be sparked in these areas. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that Your children in the fire zone will have testimonies of God’s hand of protection over their families, pets, and property!
