Pastor Jerry McCullah leads us in prayer…….
Father, You are the Sovereign, Almighty Creator God; there is no power or authority above You.  I bow to Your Majesty and Wisdom, and appeal to Your Compassion and Mercy, as we again need Your rescue.  California burns.   We have wildfires out of control throughout our state; many are in the northern regions.   Please my LORD, send help in any form.   The resources of man are limited and stretched everywhere; we must have divine intervention.   We must have Supernatural compassion and strength working with our fire personnel and all volunteers.   We need You.   Please move in our midst to prove You are the One True God Who comes to the aide of the frightened, weary, and helpless, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!
