Standing in the need of prayer

What a monstrous storm Katrina was.

Natural disasters happen all the time. Earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes. They affect Christian nations and pagan ones. They destroy brothels and churches. They kill saints and sinners, old folks, newlyweds, little children. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

Some people label disasters as God's judgment, but I just can't. As Jesus said, speaking of eighteen people who were killed when a tower fell on them, "Do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem?"

There are a lot of people standing in the need of prayer tonight. Lord, please have mercy.
