Prayers for the people of north Alabama

Two days ago, we had devastating storms come through Alabama.  Many towns in north Alabama were destroyed, including areas around Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. 

Hundreds of thousands of people are without power and it could possibly be up to a week before electricity is restored.

As these storms made their way across the United States, almost 300 people lost their lives…210 deaths in Alabama alone. 

Looking at the news coverage and seeing all those towns and communities flattened…homes lost…people still missing and unaccounted for, the destruction makes me want to cry. 

Please say a prayer for all of those affected by these storms, not just in Alabama, but in all the areas of the country that was in the path of these powerful storms.

Hi Dream,
I've seen the tragic circumstances and the devastation the tornadoes have caused on the news lately and have felt so bad for those affected. I'm definitely keeping them all in my prayers. Thanks for sharing this reminder on your blog.
