Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike is aimed straight at Texas, and it isn’t weakening. I was just in that area last weekend speaking at a conference. The people there were kind enough to initiate a prayer for my family during Tropical Storm Hanna, which hit during my absence but really turned out to be not that big of a deal. This storm looks like it will be, so I want to return the favor. Pray for Texas!

    I’m hoping it will end up like Hanna and be no big deal on the other side. But if it is, it will be because of God answering prayers like yours.

    It’s 275 miles across (including the tropical storm winds of 50 mph) and is moving at 12 mph, which means that it will take a long time to get across any given area.

    Galveston already had flooding this morning.
