Prayers Please...


The post today will be a little different. I come today asking for prayers for the people of Alabama and all other states affected by the storms and tornadoes that ripped through the southeast. I am very grateful we are safe, along with our family and friends. My husband and I live in Birmingham and our neighborhood was struck hard by a small tornado/straight line winds early yesterday morning, before the evening storm. We are thankful our home was spared; only trees down in the back yard. We are still without power and are staying with friends and family. Please pray for our precious state as the search continues for survivors and the clean up begins as people rebuild their lives.

If you are local we would like to help. Structures, Inc. would like to send our thoughts and prayers to anyone affected by the tragedy and offer our support and assistance to anyone as they recover and rebuild their homes or business. If you or anyone you know has property  that has damage, please do not hesitate to contact us to help. We wish you strength, peace, and safety in the days and months ahead.

God was merciful to our families Megan. Matt.5:45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

So devastating!! We live in Prattville, AL and spent most of the evening in the closet. Our neighborhood was flattened about 4 yrs ago before we lived here. Can't imagine the devastation, glad you're safe and praying for everyone affected.
