Preparing for Rita

Hello,
Hurricane Rita is in the Gulf.
It is heading towards Houston.
I am in Houston.
If I am not able to manage my blogs over the next few days, or week, please know that as soon as the power is back on, my blogs will continue.
As I stepped onto my porch yesterday morning at 5 am, I felt a cool North wind. It was peaceful.
Thank you for your prayers.
GBY
Anita

Just got back from the store, to complete the list of things we need to ride the storm out. Bible, check; Water, check; Radio, check; Flashlights, check; lighters, check; candles, check; glow in the dark necklaces, check; dern, I forgot to load up on t-paper. Sure hope 6 double rolls is enough to last.
Now off to move my books and important documents up high..., Block the sliding glass door...., Fill containers with water...., clean out the fridge..., move outdoor projectiles..., am I missing anything?

Dear God, put a hedge of thorns and a legion of angels all around my household, to protect them.
Allow the Holy Spirit to come and comfort us and minister peace.
We will not fear; You love us, Lord.
And not only that, it is all in Your hands; because after all, You're the weather man!
In Jesus' name, I Praise You and Thank You for Your Glory.
AMEN

Gosh, I just turned on a news conference and there's some Mayor saying, "Well, whatever's gonna happen's gonna happen." Then Governor Rick Perry is saying that the evacuees did the right thing, to leave as quick as they could.
WOW, If I were the Mayor, I would not issue mandantory evacuations, I would call for a mandantory meeting downtown and get all four million Houstonians (and New Orleans evacuees we have here) downtown and holler out in faith to God. There's no way that storm could come anyplace near here if everyone would do that.
just a thought.

I touch and agree with Firecracker. "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth, about anything that you may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in Heaven."
My son lives in Victoria and he had to start evacuting this morning.
God will bless you, this I know.

Thanks Liz and Firecracker, I appreciate you two standing in agreement with me that God is in control. I have a place to go, but I will not leave my daughter and my grandsons. We believe that we will be okay. Thanks for offering us the hope of God's Word and for being incredible women of faith.

Tom, even if I wanted to leave, there is no gas. Besides, the cars are all at a standstill on the highways due to congestion and cars running out of gas; and if traffic doesn't get moving soon, they will be riding the storm out in their cars. I feel safe in the preparations that we made and I know God is watching over me.
Of course, I know you were just big brotherin' me again. Thanks. LOL

Thanks Pete, and now I am praying heavily in my spirit for Barb and the others in CA. There was an earthquake north of LA. Ya'll pray for them.
The hurricane is beginning to lose some of its strength and the eye is less stable. Prayer does work, and we feel safe.
Thank you, everyone for your prayers and words of love.

And let's not forget the over 5,000 people stranded on the roadways from the multimillion people exodus. It will no be good for them to be stuck on the highway during the storm.
Lord be with them.

It seems the storm is weakening as it closer to land which always happens but you still have to ride out the worst of it. I'll be praying for you till you're able to get back on line.

OKAY, so, it is 5:30 pm, Friday and the dark clouds are beginning to come in. In several hours the rain should start.
From what I understand the eye is less stable, it is breaking up and lowered from a category 5 to a 3. It is moving a little east, so we will not catch the worst of the storm.
The heavy rains and winds could, however knock out power.
Let's see what happens...,
Thank ya'll for praying, it helped; Praise God!

I agree with Anita that prayer can change the storm. Anita early this year in our hurricane season (Nov-Apr) there were several in a row within just 5 weeks. One in particular was very strong (category 4) - it devastated American Samoa (did you get that on your news?). It headed towards the island I was on and another one had just passed. So all the weather people were predicting terrible things, talking about how the one that had just passed would be sucked back and join up with the one coming. A prayer chain was formed that went day and night for several days. The cyclone that had passed continued on its course & eventually died out and the one that was going to be a direct hit, for some reason suddenly changed course and we just got the edge of it! Of course there was still damage, but not like it was predicted to be.

Dear Jesus, take care of Anita and her household. Remove any fear from them and replace it with peace. Surround her home with peace and make it strong. Let her be a place of refuge for others who may seek her encouragement, comfort, strength, advice and mostly her source of peace. Let your will be done Lord, but if possible cause this storm to die out or turn back to sea. Thank you Jesus. Amen

Anita,
You are covered under the shadow of His wings. We covered all of You there with the blood of Jesus. The sciptures says, when I see the blood I will pass over you, Amen. As a child of the Most High, which I presumed you are, you are dwelling in the secret place of the Most High, therefore No EVIL shall befall You. The Lord will preserve your going out and coming in. Amen. Read and Meditate and Lay to heart this word of God(Psalm 121 and 91). Our prayers are with you and all the brethren there. NO EVIL SHALL BEFALL YOU AS YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM. He is ever faithful, Our God is the Rock of ages.
Your brother,
John Ekundayo.

Thank you Sister Ronda, Sister Edna, and Brother John.

The storm left us virtually unaffected.

These prayers were not unanswered and I thank you all for your faith.

If you ever need me to pray in the Name of Jesus for your safety, I certainly will, in fact, I will now..., In the Name of Jesus, Father God, Bless those Who have Blessed me and Protect their Comings and Goings with special favor. In Jesus' Name I Praise You and Thank You for Your Jealousy over your children; it causes You to Always Keep Them Safe - Close to You. We Praise Your Holy Name, AMEN.
