Psalm 66:12-13 …We went through fire and through water; but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Father, we lift up the men and women who serve our county, fighting fires and serving our people in a multitude of ways. We pray a hedge of protection round about them…. And when they walk through the fire, it will not scorch them, because YOU, are in there with them. We ask for divine guidance and help as they risk their lives to help others. Your Word says that greater love has no man, than that he lay his life down for his friend. We pray great blessings over these volunteers and servants.
We pray that You would protect Our County and the whole region from the effects of forest fires. We ask Lord, that You would deflect every fiery dart, (cigarettes, campfires, arson, lightning), and cause them to fall as dust to the ground. Let the fire not light on our land. We praise You and thank You for Your loving care. We lift up the men and women of these fire departments and pray blessings over them and their families. We pray for those involved in Search and Rescue and Water Rescues. Help them to find those who are lost. Give them wisdom where to look and how to help. Make them ministers of Your peace as they care for people in traumatic situations. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray!
*Now, I pray specifically for the Fire Department and volunteers that serves me: ____________.
