Lord, we want to acknowledge and pray about the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that happened in Flint, MI, about five years ago, and which is still affecting that community today. We particularly pray for those who are still battling the effects of contracting the disease, and in some cases fighting for their lives. Please help them get the best medical care possible and remain strong physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as they battle for their health. Lord, we pray for those who grieve lost loved ones. We know they not only grieve over those missing from their lives, but that some bereaved residents still struggle with the injustice of being given contaminated water and the withholding of timely information that could have possibly saved lives. Help Flint residents resolve these inner struggles, find the peace that passes understanding, and forgive. At the same time, we pray for the truth to come out and for justice wherever it is needed. Please work in Flint, MI, to bring about hope, truth and change as needed. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
