- for God to use situations to bring unprecedented spiritual openness to people affected by tragedy.
- for God to stand against the enemy’s attempt to make people experience anger and resentment in the face of adversity.
- for the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus as we minister to those who are hurting.
- for the church to be filled with love and compassion to reach out.
- that somehow in the midst of tragedy and devastation, God will work “all things together for good”.
