Tornado Leaves Destruction and Death in its Wake: Please Pray This Thankful Thursday

A tornado in Alabama left homes flattened and a number dead, including a Homeschooling husband and father of 13, Tom Lee.  Blogging friend, Berean Wife, and her family live in the area, but were graciously spared.  Please pray for the Lees and the Crawfords, and all whose homes were destroyed.

Kelly Crawford, of Generation Cedar, writes for LAF (Ladies Against Feminism) and At the Well. Both have related posts.  Doug Phillips of Vision Forum has more details and video here. 

Despite the devastation, thankfulness is appropriate.  (To participate and read other thankful hearts, visit Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. Thank you, Lynn, for hosting this month.)  These families and those who've come to help are a powerful testimony of God's provision of faith, strength and peace in times of trouble.  It's powerful to read of their thankfulness after they've lost everything.

Despite the devastation, I am thankful to God for His mercy.  Thankful to God for protection and the rapid response of Christian brothers and sisters from far and near.  Thankful to God that there weren't more deaths.

Our prayers are needed.  Pray for provision, resources, aid.  Pray that cleanup and rebuilding will go smoothly.  Pray for comfort, peace and strength.

Two places where you can give aid are Tornado Relief Efforts and (specifically for the Crawford family) at A Wise Woman Builds Her Home.

Wendy - those storms passed through our area on Tuesday, but we were spared the damage and lost lives. My prayers go out to those in Alabama.

I saw for myself some of the devastation in Calhoun and Etowah counties today. Unbelievable. Houses completely gone. Trees were snapped in half or completely uprooted. Debris and downed power lines everywhere. This part of the state is more rural so there's not been a lot of news coverage, but the destruction is absolutely horrific. I've been in constant prayer all day.
