Our Father, thank you for answered prayer. Whilst the situation of the bush fires in Australia is still serious, there has been a little rain which has brought some hope to those fighting the fires. Thank you for inspiring everyone in working together throughout this terrible disaster – the emergency services, volunteers (of whom many are victims themselves), those who have donated financially and everyone who is praying.
Dear Father, please send more rain to allow the fires to be brought under control. Please strengthen those who are caring for people who have had to leave everything behind, those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, and those caring for wildlife. We ask you to bless the people and wildlife of Australia and give them hope and courage as they build their lives up again.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
