Dear Heavenly Father,
There is a mighty storm coming along the eastern seaboard. I know that You are well aware of it and are keeping Your eyes on it. I also know that through that giant storm, you see my baby brother and his family, my cousins and Aunts, my friends and my fellow writers. Many of Your children are in the path of possible destruction. Father, they are saying that this storm is historic in size and power, that the damage will be unpresidented. I am so glad to know that You, Father, are bigger, mightier, and greater than any storm. I believe that our prayers of faith are heard. I believe that even if everything was wiped out, that You are a good and loving God, and that You will still be there in the midst of our brothers and sisters, believers and the lost.
Thank You for the opportunity of salvation. Thank You that we have the chance to be saved through Jesus Christ. Thank You that it only takes believing the truth of a simple prayer to bring us over to eternity with You. I give my heart to You everyday, and I thank You for not leaving or forsaking me in the middle of the storm. Just as You pulled Peter out of the raging sea, You are willing to pull me out of my own mess and give me life everlasting. I love You. I love You, I love You.
"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He pulled me out of deep waters." "He brought me out to a wide-open place; He rescued me because He delights in me." Psalm 18:16,19 NIV
To those who are believers, He says,
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. For I am the Lord, your God." Isaiah 43:1b-3
I have attached the Sinner's Prayer of Salvation for anyone who may be in the path of Sandy and not sure of where you will go if you died. My prayers are with you for safety and that you are all spared the brunt of this megastorm.
Heavenly Father, I come to You admitting that I am a sinner. Right now, I choose to turn away from sin, and I ask You to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I believe that Your Son, Jesus, died on the cross to take away my sins. I also believe that He rose again from the dead so that I may be justified and made righteous through faith in Him. I call upon the name of Jesus Christ to be the Savior and Lord of my life. Jesus, I choose to follow You, and I ask that You will fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit. I declare right now that I am a born-again child of God. I am free from sin, and full of the righteousness of God. I am saved in Jesus' name, Amen!
