Prayer for Australia's floods needed
Originally appeared on spirituality.com.
Around the world, images of what has been described as an inland tsunami in Regional Queensland have produced shock and disbelief. Cars swept aside like toys, people rescued from their roof-tops, whole towns destroyed, and sadly, a number of lives lost as a giant tidal wave of flood water swept away all in its path. The disastrous flooding that has engulfed almost 75% of the state, has now reached Brisbane, the capital city.
Residents have been told to evacuate almost 30,000 homes and businesses in low-lying areas along the Brisbane River as it swiftly rises to an expected peak of 5.5 meters (about 18 feet)—higher than the devastating historic 1974 flood.
