a prayer for Oklahoma

"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love.  Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow- not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love.  No power in the sky above or in the earth below- indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."  Romans 8:38-39 (NLT) 

Lord, thank you that nothing can separate us from the Your love as revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Even in the midst of great loss, we pray that the people of Oklahoma would know that love and be comforted and strengthened by that great, unstoppable, power-full love.  The spirit within groans as we don't even know how else to pray.  Come, Lord Jesus.  Amen.
