Heavenly Father, we grieve with Jordan over the 19 people—including many children—who died in Thursday’s flash flooding near the Dead Sea. First, Lord, we pray for the search-and-rescue mission that is still underway. We pray that all people, whether alive or not, will be found as quickly as possible. Second, we pray for the dozens of people who were treated for injuries. We pray they will physically and emotionally recover from this ordeal. Next, we pray for the truth to come out about whether these children were foolishly endangered, so accidents like this will be less likely to happen in the future. Finally, Heavenly Father, we pray for the grieving. The loss of a loved one is one of the hardest trials we face on this earth. Please bring comfort to the grieving at this very moment. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
