Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Gulf of Mexico and speak to Hurricane Sally. Weather forecasters project that the intensity of Tropical Storm Sally may increase to become a Category 2 Hurricane on Tuesday morning, when it is expected to make landfall between New Orleans and Western Florida.
In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm. So, as believers, we are following His example. Pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ and pray in faith. Please pray this prayer out loud and with fervency and determination. God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift upyour voice. Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name.
Continue to pray this prayer 1-2 times per day. Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for our region.
A Prayer Against Hurricane Sally
Triumphant Father, thank You for hearing our prayers concerning Hurricane Sally. Thank You for reducing the power of this storm through Your Word and protecting the citizens of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and the entire Gulf Coast Region. Lord, Your glory is higher than the heavens. You are great and Your power is absolute! Your understanding is beyond comprehension. Lord, Most High, You are awesome. You are the King of all the earth.
Eternal Father, using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Hurricane Sally and command peace, be still! We command the winds to dissipate and the barometric pressure to rise and normalize. In Jesus Name, we further declare that upper level wind shear will disrupt and destabilize this storm. By faith, as the people of God, we declare that this storm will not bring excessive flooding, electrical outages, harm or devastation to the Gulf Coast Region. We confess that the rain and storm surge to come from this tropical disturbance will not overwhelm our region.
Holy Spirit, we ask You to touch the hearts of every believer to pray against this storm system and we pray that You will calm the fears of those who are in the pathway of this storm. Lordt, we pray that You will bless the companies that provide critical supplies for residents and business in the Gulf Coast Region. We ask that You ensure adequate supplies of food, water, batteries, building materials, and personal protective equipment as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Additionally, we ask You to give Your wisdom to government officials and frontline workers who will lead storm response efforts. Father, Your Word has helped with weather disturbances in the past, please cause it to help with this storm.
Merciful Father, please forgive our citizens for all acts of sinfulness. Please forgive disobedience, rebellion, unbelief, forms of idolatry, immorality, and the rejection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Father, have mercy on the Gulf Coast Region of our country. Lord, help us to forgive others.
Holy Spirit, help us all to overcome temptations and deliver us all from any impending destruction. We ask You to destroy every satanic assignment against our region.
Lord, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
