Prayers Against DisastersPrayer for help in the midst of any natural or man-made storm or disaster
The following is an excerpt from "Prayers that Avail Much", by Germaine Copeland, Harrison House, titled #119, Page 433 Protection and Deliverance of a city.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we have received your power - ability, efficiency, and might - because the Holy Spirit has come upon us; and we are Your witnesses in _____ and to the ends _____ the very bounds of the earth.
We fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in good time for every need - appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we in the city of _____ need it.
Father thank You for sending forth Your commandments to the earth; Your Word continues to grow and spread.
Father, we seek - inquire for, require and request - the peace and welfare of _____ in which You have caused us to live. We pray to You for the welfare of this city and do our part by getting involved in it. We will not let [false] prophets and diviners who are in our midst deceive us; we pay no attention and attach no significance to our dreams which we dream, or to theirs. Destroy their schemes], O Lord; confuse their tongues; for we have seen violence and strife in the city.
Holy Spirit, we ask You to visit our city and open the eyes of the people, that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Jesus.
Father, we pray for deliverance and salvation for those who are following the course and fashion of this world - who are under the sway of the tendency of this present age - following the prince of the power of the air.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
Father, You see the regional and cultural strongholds that would hinder the Gospel. You have told us to declare Your works. So we say boldly that the prince of the power of the air, the god of this world who blinds the unbelievers' minds (that they should not discern the truth) is a defeated foe. We declare on the authority of Your Word that You have disarmed the powers and authorities; You made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross. Thank You, Father, for the spreading of the Gospel.
Thank You, Father, for the guardian angels assigned to this place who war for us in the heavenlies.
In the name of Jesus, we stand victorious over the principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places over _____.
We ask the Holy Spirit to sweep through the gates of our city and convince the people and bring demonstration to them about sin and about righteousness - uprightness of heart and right standing with God - and about judgment.
Father, You said, For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you... thoughts and plans for welfare and peace, and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome (Jer 29:11 AMP). By the blessing of the influence of the upright and God's favor [because of them] the city of _____ is exalted. Amen.
