Prayers for Oklahoma City




My heart is heavy as I continue lift up my hometown of Oklahoma City in the aftermath of the devastating destruction caused by a tornado. Our family is all safe and sound and did not lose their homes, but so many did. Please join me in supporting the city through prayer, donations, aid, etc. Check out this article linked HERE with an extensive list of organizations you can donate through to help the victims. 

Here are few verses I am going to focus on as I pray for the precious families.


“Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.”  (Psalms 55:22)

“The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” (Psalms 9:9)

One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.” (Psalms 27:4-5)

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalms 46:1)

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

“For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him.” (Psalms 22:24)

"You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?" (Psalms 56:8)

"I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live." (Psalms 116:1-2)

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" (Jeremiah 29:11)

"The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him." (Nahum 1:7 )

"For the Lord will not  cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men." (Lamentations 3:31-32)

"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.'I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you…'" (John 14:16-18) 

"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." (John 14:26-27)

"It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22-23)

"…Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning." (Psalms 30:5)

"You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again. You will increase my greatness and comfort me again." (Psalms 71:20-21)

"So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you." (John 16:22)

"And he who was seated on the throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' Also he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'” (Revelation 21:5)
