thought for today...Give it to God

Spencer in a prayer circle with the DTS students interceding for Russia.

This week we heard about the flooding in the region of Krasnodar where we used to live.  Thousands of people were affected by the wall of water that came through late in the night.  Over 3000 homes had to be pumped out by rescue workers.  That number represents 2/3 of the affected homes in the area.  Various news reports that I have read place the death toll anywhere between 162-171.  We are greatly saddened by the news and have been praying for those affected since we first heard this tragic event.  

Whether your concerns are about a family member, a friend, a city, or a country give them over to God in prayer.  While there is still speculation regarding the cause of the flood, whether it was rainfall, water released from a nearby reservoir, or a combination of both...we know that God is in control.  And only He can bring restoration, healing, and hope to those who have suffered losses because of this tragic event.  

Please join with us in prayer for the people of Krymsk, Gelenzhik, and Novorossiysk, Russia.
