Please wrap your arms around the hurting people of Australia. Help them to feel your comfort. Grant your Holy Spirit to descend on them and fill them with peace. God it hurts to watch and hear of the pain they are feeling right now from the senseless fires, lost loved ones and lost homes. Send them hope in this suffering. Bring beauty out of the ashes of this awfulness. God, in our helplessness, we ask for your strength and ableness.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
In Jesus name,
My heart hurts for you, Australian friends.
