Prayer about Hurricane Eta damage in Nicaragua and Honduras PC: Orlando Sierra/AFP via Getty Images

LORD, we know you are enthroned over the flood; you sit enthroned as king forever. Lord, please give strength to your people in Honduras and Nicaragua! Please bless your people with peace! [See Psalm 29:10-11.] With life-threatening flash floods, tens of thousands of families losing their homes, and whole cities without power, this part of the world is in dire straits as they deal with Hurricane Eta. Lord, we pray about the evacuation of more than 600 inmates in El Progreso, that these prisoners would be treated humanely and that their behavior would be above reproach during this emergency. We pray about the immediate need of getting food and water to northeastern Nicaragua's remote communities, many of which may now be cut off by floodwaters. We pray against disease from the floodwaters and against any further deaths from landslides or flash flooding. And we pray that Nicaragua and Honduras will be able to rebuild even better roads, homes, and buildings to replace those that were damaged or washed away. Lord, please reveal yourself amid these difficult circumstances. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
