Floods, prayer, and God's love

Although I wasn't directly affected by the rising river, the flood warnings made me think—and then pray—about the people and cities that were threatened.

It had rained on and off for six days. Rivers were overflowing their banks from the heavy rainfall and the melting of the snow in the mountains. Streets in small towns nestled near rivers were filled with as much as five to twenty feet of water. Already bridges had been destroyed and lives lost.

The news this particular day named five cities that would be inundated as the water was expected to rise two more feet within twenty-four hours. An emergency evacuation alert was sent out to all these cities. This was meant to warn citizens that evacuation might be necessary and that they should prepare accordingly.
