Merciful Heavenly Father, we pray for your help and hope in Honduras, which is still recovering from being slammed by two back-to-back hurricanes. With the storms having destroyed bridges, roads, schools and health clinics, and with families losing their homes, farms and businesses to floodwaters, the impact is staggering. Multiplying the concern is Covid-19 making it harder for emergency relief teams to get to their destinations, as well as the spread of Covid-19 in shelters. Lord, we pray for a beautiful confirmation of Honduran President Juan Orlando’s declaration, “You are not alone.” We pray that people would band together nationwide to recover together, and that the world would come to Honduras’ aid however possible. We pray that people would sense your presence as they navigate this time of tribulation. During this Christmas season, may people witness Christmas miracles of kindness, generosity, healing and hope. May celebrations in shelters be unique in their own way, creating positive memories to last a lifetime. We pray that Honduras will recover from this massive setback as quickly as possible, and with the knowledge that they are not alone. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
