Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Atlantic Ocean and speak to Hurricane Florence. 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 those who are in the path of Tropical Storm Barry. Please forward this prayer to everyone who believes in the power of prayer.

A Prayer Against Tropical Storm Barry
Triumphant Father, thank You for hearing our prayers concerning Tropical Storm Barry. Thank You, in advance, for reducing the power of this weather system. Lord, Your glory is higher than the heavens. You are great, and Your power is absolute! Your understanding is beyond comprehension. Lord, Most High, You are awesome. You are the King of all the earth.
Eternal Father, using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Tropical Storm Barry in the Gulf of Mexico, and we command peace, be still! We command that the storm-force winds be muted and that the steering currents accelerate to a rapid forward speed in order to minimize flooding. By faith, we declare that this storm will not bring the predicted destructive winds, excessive flooding, electrical shortages, harm or devastation to our region. We speak “Shalom” in Jesus’ Name!
Holy Spirit, we ask You to touch the heart of every believer to pray against this system. Calm the fears of every citizen who live in its projected path, especially in Louisiana. Touch their hearts to follow the instructions of the local authorities. Father, Your Word helped with hurricanes and tropical storms in the past; please cause it to help with this storm.
Merciful Father, please forgive us for all acts of sinfulness. Father, have mercy on every urban and rural community in the path of Tropical Storm Barry. 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.
Lord, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
