Boy! There’s a lot going on in our world right now isn’t there? Hurricanes are hitting our coast and fires are engulfing the southwest. But these devastating events aren’t isolated to the United States. Our friends in Puerto Rico and Cuba are seeing hurricanes too. Mexico has been hit with the largest earthquake in 100 years. And India, Nepal, and Bangladesh are under water. If you’ve been affected, my heart and prayers are with you, your friends, and family.
I am in constant prayer over for those that I know and those who I have yet to meet.

Being the Hands and Feet
As Christians, we are called to be the hands and feet (1 Corinthians 12:27) of Christ. Practically speaking, this means to give of your time, talents, and finances as the Holy Spirit directs you to. If you’d like to give, ask your church if there is something specific you can help with. You can also give online. Here is a list of charities that have been vetted by Charity Navigator.
While money helps restore, there’s nothing better than the restoration provided by our Lord. Sometimes it’s hard to see that through the tragedies, cloudiness, and tasks of the day. But, be encouraged! Surround yourself with those who care, find other like-minded friends that can spur you on, and likewise do the same.
I am so thankful for the community of Bible Journaler’s who have been lifting our friends and those unknown to us up in prayer. Never have I seen so much support, love, and compassion for one another. They encourage me every single day.
Did I Miss You?
It takes hours and hours for me to create these kits. If I missed your state or country, it’s not because you’re not important to me or our ministry. We are praying for you. If you want specific prayer, please join our community and search for #prayerthread. I pray over that entire list multiple times per week.
I created these specific kits because the Holy Spirit put it on my heart to do so. If you would like me to pray about creating a kit for a specific state, please leave your comment below. I will never make a promise that I can’t keep – so there are no promises. Only the promise that I will read your comment and pray for direction and resources.
Thank you for this wonderful gift! We appreciate all the prayers as we prepare to weather Irma here in Oviedo, FL. We will be in constant prayer for all our neighbors across the country as well. May all stay safe and may God bless!
Thank you Tracie for taking the time and sending our printables out to us. I am grateful for unselfish hours you put in for us all. I am praying for our States involved in these storms. May God be with all of them and protect them…. xo
Thank you for all your hard work! Praying for lots of folks over these days behind and ahead of us!
I love these….I wish i could have one for Vermont…My family and I lost everything in 2011 because of Hurricane Irene….These are so beautiful and you are so talented too….I wish i could do the same thing but dont know where to begin on this creativity….I am in temporary housing not due to a total different issue….Great work and God bless!!!
Tracie- Gods Favor to you always and Thank you for all you are doing. Even just prayers can help our Nation. Our Mother Earth is Crying out! I pray that in this time Peoples Eyes and Hearts are opened and that we all Look into our hearts and souls and Be better People and Love each other. There is so much going on its scary. Through our Bible Studying and Journaling our Prayers will be heard and reach to the furthest of places! Thank you !
Thank you for these wonderful reminders of the importance of prayer and faith . Your artwork is beautiful and your giving heart is a picture of Jesus in motion! Truly a kindness beyond measure! May God Bless You in All You Do!!
Thank you for creating these for us to remember Irma and God’s gracious mercy in causing it to fall apart before it completely destroyed our state. We evacuated and came home to a messy yard, but no downed trees and no damaged to our home. Even the power was on. God truly blessed us. Some parts of Florida did not fare as well. We must never forget that it could have been us, too. Brenda in Jacksonville, Fl
Puerto Rico is part of the United States although it is not a state – they are devasted and without power – please include them in your prayers as well
