Not too long ago, God brought this phrase to my mind: Shortchanged or short on change? It wasn’t a message I wanted to hear. It certainly wasn’t something I wanted to take to heart. I was in the early doldrums of a coming depressive episode… already in the mental quicksand of negative thought patterns, catastrophic thinking, and withdrawal into the fortress I’ve built over time to block out the rest of the world.
We pray for You to calm, dissolve, or re-direct Hurricane Dorian so that all life is spared. Send your holy, warrior angels to form a hedge of protection around the families living along the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida coasts. Protect them, Lord, and their property from destruction. Keep them safe under the wings of your angels until danger has passed.
