Pray for Haiti

CNN reported this morning that nearly 800 people in Haiti have died from a string of hurricanes which whipped this already-poverty-stricken nation with heavy rains, flooding and mudslides. Another 2.3 million Haitians are estimated to have "fallen into food insecurity, with dramatic increases in prices for staple foods."

Pray for the people of Haiti!

Lord God, I cannot comprehend the devastation to this small, impoverished nation. It is too big for me. But it's not too big for you. A hurricane fits into the palm of your hand and you can do with it as you will. Haiti also fits into the palm of your hand and I know you love the people there. Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy! So be it.
