B.C. WILDFIRES

As the wildfires continue to rage in British Columbia, please join us in prayer for those affected by this crisis – the largest wildfire in the province’s historyEmergency Management BC said Monday that 3,800 people throughout B.C. remain displaced by wildfires and 9,700 others are on evacuation alert, the Toronto Star reports. Pray that God would provide comfort to those who have lost their homes and belongings, and that they would find refuge in Jesus during this very distressing time. Pray that God would move through the local churches to provide for the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of these families. Also, remember to pray for over 400 firefighters that continue to put their own lives at risk, as they work to contain the blaze that has been raging since April 1. May God give them wisdom as they seek to coordinate an effective response to this challenging situation.
