27 thoughts on “Pray for Kentucky”

      1. I keep looking at the pictures in news reports of the terrible destruction there in Kentucky, and aching inside. My paternal grandfather was born in Kentucky, and many of my cousins came from there. Kentucky holds a special place in my heart.

        Where I grew up, in Missouri, we had many close calls with tornadoes. Here in New Mexico, I have had two close encounters with tornadoes in recent years. Those experiences were terrifying. But it was nothing compared to this. I keep praying, but I wish I could do more.

        1. Your prayers are so appreciated. I am hearing about a lot of horrible things that aren’t on the news. There are unidentified children in the hospital here. Traumatized firemen breaking down, and worse. Thank you for praying. That’s what we need.

  1. Reports say it will take years to rebuild Mayfield. ๐Ÿ’”
    It’s good to see the Church stepping up to help. Our pastor said, if you want to help, do NOT go there. (Your vehicle will just get in the way of official rescue vehicles and equipment.) Instead, we are taking up a collection of hundreds (I hope thousands) of gift cards displaced people can use to get groceries and other necessities. I’m guessing Habitat for Humanity will welcome more volunteers in the near future.
    Meanwhile, pray, pray, pray! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•

    1. Your pastor is right. Traffic has hindered the work. For one thing, people can’t find ways to get where they want to go! Bowling Green, where I live, was hit hard. The gift cards will help so much! Prayer is much appreciated. There are so many hurting people. Thanks, Annie. Your prayers mean a lot to us here.

    1. I live in a condo. We don’t think the condo was damaged. But my daughter was in the shower stall when the tornado went over and she said the air was sucked out of the room through the toilet and sink. She was unharmed. My grandson and his girlfriend were hunkered down in her apartment and it was completely destroyed, but they were unhurt. I am so thankful all my kids were kept safe. The city where I live, Bowling Green, KY, was hit hard. Thank you for your prayers!

  2. Reblogged this on A Blog About Healing From PTSD and commented:
    Cindy, author of the Real Christian Women blog, wrote this post. She and her adult children and grandchildren live in Kentucky. Cindy’s grandson was in his girlfriend’s apartment when the apartment was completely destroyed all around them. They were unhurt. Cindy’s daughter was in the shower stall when the tornado went over her condo, sucking all the air out of the room through the sink drain and toilet. Thankfully she, too, was unhurt.

    But so many were not so fortunate. People are still missing in the rubble. The death toll is still rising. In a reply to one of my comments on her post, Cindy said: “Your prayers are so appreciated. I am hearing about a lot of horrible things that arenโ€™t on the news. There are unidentified children in the hospital here. Traumatized firemen breaking down, and worse. Thank you for praying. Thatโ€™s what we need.”
