Together We PrayTogether We Pray For Red LakeOn August 10 and 11 the residents of Red Lake, Ont. were asked to evacuate the municipality of Red Lake "as soon as possible", as a "forest fire in the area has now posed a risk for all community members". The municipality stated in a media release that "all vulnerable populations are asked to leave the community immediately."


PRAYER FOR RED LAKE

For all people affected by this, and by all forest fires, know that we are praying for you and are available to try to help in any other way that you may need. We pray for all other living things also that they may find safety and otherwise be protected from the devastating effects of the fire.

For the rest of us, please do pray this prayer for those affected by the evacuation order in Red Lake and for all of those affected by forest fires.

Almighty and eternal God, we ask Your protection against destroying fire. Fire is so very necessary for our existence, and yet, when it gets out of control, it can be more damaging than anything else. Keep our homes and buildings and woods and fields safe from this scourge. Help us always to be most careful in our use of it.

Lord, please be with the evacuation, rescue workers and firefighters and keep them safe as they make heroic efforts in dangerous situations to help those in trouble and control the fire.

Lord, please be with everyone who has evacuated and are waiting to be evacuated, keep them safe, and please enable them to return to their homes soon.

God, bless each and every person affected by forest fires and surround them with Your love, protection, and angels.
Let them know there are millions of us out here praying for them and their loved ones.

We give You all the praise and glory forever, Lord, and know that even in the darkest hours, You are always with us.

Amen
