Prayer Topic #9:
A Prayer for the Earthquake Survivors in Haiti
Psalm 66:1-8, Psalm 20
Reflections of the Heart:
Haiti is a nation in need of much prayer. Thousands of people have died, and countless families have been affected by the recent earthquake. The Haitian people will spend years recovering what was destroyed in a matter of minutes. Please keep this nation and its citizens in your prayers.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the nation of Haiti and its people. Thank You for comforting them in this time of great loss and suffering. Thank You for sending people to help Haiti to rebuild and recover from the devastation caused by the earthquake. Lord, there is none like You. What mighty praise belongs to You in Zion. You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds. You are the hope of everyone on earth and those who sail on distant seas. You formed the mountains by Your power and armed Yourself with mighty strength. You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations. Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, You inspire shouts of joy.
Eternal King, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in Haiti. Your Word says death and life are in the power of the tongue; so we boldly continue to speak life and call for new beginnings for this nation. Lord, You said that when the righteous cry out, You will hear and answer. Today, we cry out for the nation of Haiti. As the people of God, we know that Your arm is not too weak to save the people from this devastating disaster. We expect Your divine intervention because we are praying. We decree that Haitian Prime Dr. Ariel Henry and all the cabinet members will listen to wise counsel as they process recovery. and prepare for a possible tropical storm. We command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within every governmental agency and non-profit support agency will be fiscally responsible for helping the citizens and communities in the affected areas to recover and rebuild. We rebuke every demonic power that is assigned to the recovery process especially the spirits of delay and greed. We command the necessary funds for rebuilding to come forth! We declare that the people in the impacted areas will place their hope and trust in You, Jesus Christ. We decree supernatural blessings for these communities.
Holy Spirit, show us how we can provide support to Haiti:
Holy Spirit, entire communities have been destroyed and thousands of Haitian residents are homeless, please help them to find shelter, food and water. Please reunite family members who have become separated in the midst of the chaos. Provide loving, Godly homes for those children who are now orphaned and comfort them in the years to come. Heal their hearts that are now broken by the loss of their parents. Holy Spirit, help them to recover from this unspeakable tragedy. Guide the efforts of the rescue teams as they continue to search for survivors and reveal those who are trapped. Touch the hearts of the global community to continue to assist Haiti in this extraordinary recovery effort. Lord, touch the hearts of world leaders to continue to provide the necessary support Haiti will need to rebuild. Please help medical teams from around the globe to organize and assist the Haitian doctors and nurses who struggle to provide medical care. Please send supernatural intervention to abate the outbreak of diseases. Using the authority given to believers by Jesus Christ, we speak to any possible storms not to form and further impact Haiti.
Merciful Father, please forgive all Haitians and us for our many sins. Forgive us for disobedience, rebellion, unbelief, forms of idolatry, shedding of innocent blood, and the rejection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. God have mercy upon your creation. Forgive those who prey on people in tragic circumstances. Forgive the people in Haiti who have not been sensitive to Your leadership. Forgive those Christians who live among the people in this part of the world for not adequately praying for this nation and for not consistently sharing Your love and Your Word. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed.) Holy Spirit, remind the residents of Haiti of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Faithful Father, help the residents of Haiti not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
We worship You, O Great Deliverer! All praise belongs to You. You are the Lord God of Israel who alone does such wonderful things. We will praise Your glorious Name forever. Let the whole earth be filled with Your glory, Amen and Amen!
