We are alerting our prayer members to pray for the event unfolding in West Virgina.
BULLETIN -- “MONTCOAL, W.Virginia. -- Toxic methane gas buildup forced rescuers to suspend efforts early Tuesday in finding four missing coal miners in West Virginia after a mine explosion killed 25 others in the deadliest such disaster in the United States in decades. The mine is located about 30 miles south of Charleston. Authorities have slim hopes that the missing miners could be found alive more than 1,000 feet underground amid a buildup of toxic methane gas. At least two miners were injured in the blast and remain hospitalized."
We ask that you take the time today to pray for:
For the families of those killed - that God would bring His undeniable presence and comfort to their hearts and minds as they face the loss of their loved ones.
For the rescue workers still on site - that the Lord will energize them and give them His wisdom to locate anyone who may still be alive. We also offer praise for those who were rescued, and thank God for the bravery and selflessness of the rescuers.
For the Massey Energy coal mine community - that God would use this tragedy to draw them together and help them find His peace, and even joy, in the midst of this disaster. Also, that He would help them take any measures that could prevent another explosion in the future.
For President Obama and our nation - that the Lord would work in and through us to remind us of His love and presence in these times of difficulty.
