2) Wisdom and resources for those who are responsible for planning and coordinating the transfer of the evacuees from the Superdome to
subsequent holding areas ; that God’s hand will guide the evacuation of New Orleans hospitals and particularly protect the critically ill
3) For creativity, equipment and manpower to fill the breeches in the levees allowing water to pour into New Orleans.
4)The end of looting and a restore to law and order; that God would bind the spirit of lawlessness and ask God to release righteousness and the reverent fear of the Lord.
5) That those who have suffered the loss of a loved one will experience the peace found only in Jesus.
6) That Christians will be granted wisdom and discernment by God to know how best to respond to those who have experienced such losses;
7) That those in life threatening situations will be discovered and helped;

Protection for rescue workers and for emotional and physical stamina and strength.
9) That a quick and seamless solution come for everyone evacuated, that they are able to find a permament home and job, and if they choose to settle in the city they have been transferred to, i.e. Metroplex, Houston, San Antonio and Austin, that they be absorbed into that city’s life and find Jesus and a good home church as part of their transition.
10) For the Christians and their pastors and churches located in the strike zone in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi, God’s peace, provision and guidance as they manuever through this crisis, some trying to take in refugees themselves with the limited resources at their disposal.
11) That this will be the finest hour for the Body of Christ….that our light shine brighter in this time of darkness and much despair…
2Corinthians 4:5-6 (New International Version)
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”
made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
12) That the Church remember her heritage to walk as they walked in the Book of Acts, seeing signs and wonders take place to meet every need, and the Lord being glorified.
