A Prayer of Recovery for the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands
Triumphant Father, we thank You for hearing our prayers concerning the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands. Thank You for comforting those impacted and for helping them to recover. Holy Spirit, thank You for pouring out Your spirit of love, compassion, benevolence and generosity. Thank You for supplying all the needs for those impacted according to Your glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Lord, 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.
Gracious Father, we declare that the citizens of the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands will rebuild the ruins and restore the places that were devastated by Hurricane Dorian. We expect Your favor to surround them like a shield. We declare renewal in the ruined areas! We call forth the blessings of God to rest upon their communities! Lord, we command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within every governmental agency and insurance company that is responsible for helping the residents to recover. We command the necessary funds for rebuilding to come forth! We declare that the hope and trust of each citizen are in You, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! Today, we stand in the gap and pray for the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands! We pray for their leaders in business and commerce, energy, healthcare, education and the religious community. We declare God’s blessings, protection and provision over the thousands of residents of Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands who are without shelter, stranded by flooding and are likely to suffer shortages of food, water and medicine.
God, our Healer, please heal each person emotionally and psychologically. Holy Spirit, calm the fears of every citizen, especially children and the elderly. Comfort those who have experienced the death of their loved ones and total loss of their homes and businesses. Let Your love and presence saturate their hearts, souls and spirits. Touch the hearts of people throughout the world to give generously. Holy Spirit, lead and guide the United Nations, the U.S. Embassy in Nassau and all local officials to rebuild the infrastructure with supernatural efficiency. Continue to send people who will love, support, and comfort the residents during their time of recovery. God, our Healer, please provide healing and speedy recovery to every citizen.
Righteous Father, forgive the citizens for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive those governmental leaders for not looking after their citizens and for oppressing the poor and disadvantaged. Forgive those of us who are insensitive to the needs of those severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the citizens of the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands of those they need to forgive and help them 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 reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help the citizens of the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
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.
