Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Gulf Coast and speak to the storm. In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm. So, as believers, we are following His example. Pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ and pray in faith. Please pray this prayer out loud and with fervency and determination. God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift up your voice. Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name. Please pray this prayer.
Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for our region.

A Prayer Against Hurricane Irma
Triumphant Father, thank You for hearing our prayers concerning Hurricane Irma. Thank You for reducing the power of this system in the Atlantic. Lord, You are good. Your steadfast love endures forever, and Your faithfulness spans to all generations! Your mercies are fresh every morning. We praise Your great and awesome Name. Your Name is holy!
Eternal Father, using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Hurricane Irma, and we command peace, be still! We command the winds to dissipate and the barometric pressure to rise and normalize. By faith, we declare that this storm will not reach north or south of Puerto Rico or hit the U.S. mainland.
Holy Spirit, we ask You to touch the hearts of believers throughout our nation to pray against this system and calm the fears of our citizens. Father, Your Word helped with hurricanes and tropical storms in the past. Bless our residents to recover and rebuild from Hurricane Harvey.
Merciful Father, please forgive us for all acts of sinfulness. Father, have mercy on our city and the surrounding areas. Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to forgive.
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from this impending weather system.
Holy, Holy, Holy are You, the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of Your glory. You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. You are the God who is, who was, and who is to come. You are the Almighty. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
