Prayer for Wildfire Survivors in Colorado

Colorado wildfire

Lord, we pray for those who are recovering from the loss of businesses and homes in the Colorado wildfires. We thank you for organizations like Samaritan’s Purse who are first responders in natural disasters around the world. These people don’t just need to rebuild their homes, but they need to rebuild their lives. Please help them to rebuild their lives on Jesus, who is the cornerstone. Please help all the survivors to hear the message of Jesus Christ through this disaster.

Message from Samaritan’s Purse: Samaritan’s Purse is deploying to help disaster victims

Wildfires broke out Tuesday, June 11, in the Colorado Springs area and continued to rage even days later. More than 500 homes have been destroyed in the Black Forest Fire, with more than 200 families seeking assistance from local authorities. So far, two people have died in the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history.

Samaritan’s Purse deployed staff and equipment from our North Carolina headquarters. A Disaster Relief Unit arrived Wednesday and is based at Mountain Spring Church in Colorado Springs, two miles from the burn zone.

Todd Taylor, program manager for the response, was shown the burn area by the local fire department on Wednesday. He is scheduled to meet with emergency management officials today to determine when local volunteers will be allowed to begin helping. We already have received 190 requests for help.

“Some homeowners have been allowed back in and are starting to work so we believe it will be Friday or Saturday when it opens to volunteers,” Taylor said. “We are looking forward to seeing how the Lord is going to move here.”

During a fire response, our teams typically sift through ashes and debris to help homeowners recover items of sentimental value.

Our teams will be working alongside chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Rapid Response team, who also deployed to minister to the victims.
