The amount of time it took to intensify from a tropical storm to a category 5 of historic proportions is incredible. Here she is, in all her catastrophic glory.
Praying that the Lord will intervene however aligns with His will. Praying for safety for those who are in Wilma’s path, for smooth evacuations for people of all means and circumstances, for protection of life and property; Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
From Psalm 107, NIV
24 They saw the works of the LORD,
his wonderful deeds in the deep.
25 For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
that lifted high the waves.
26 They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
in their peril their courage melted away.
27 They reeled and staggered like drunken men;
they were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
and he brought them out of their distress.
29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed.
30 They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.
31 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men.
