Prayer Request: Hurricane Harvey Destroys Houston
Apostolate of the Green Scapular
A message from Anna Marie:
Dear Apostles around the world, our Headquarters in Houston, Texas, USA is being destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. Our reservoirs have exceeded its banks and is overflowing into the streets. We are suffering and request your prayers. Some of our Volunteers are inundated by rain water, the storm surge which has exceeded its banks and all our streets flooding, limits the escape out of our homes. We need your prayers and I am pleading for your prayers of mercy for our City and the many who have already died in our City. The rain is expected to stop next Saturday or Sunday. Please pray for Houston and all souls who have lost their lives. Please asked Jesus to bless and protect all Volunteers! Also, our office is closed through the week into September. Thank you and God bless you all!
UPDATE: Thank you for your Prayers for Houston
As of Wednesday, August 30, 2017: Houston has over 230 shelters set up with over 30,000 folks being sheltered and are still being evacuated from their homes because the flooding has not stopped. We have a population of over 6.5 million citizens within the City of Houston and Harris County. It will take Houston years to recover back to pre-Hurricane Harvey status. We are deeply saddened by the lives that have been lost and ask for your continued prayers for Houstonians who are mourning throughout September. As for Anna Marie and her family members, they did not flood which was an amazing miracle! For some of our Apostolate Volunteers, they did flood and have lost much. ANNA MARIE THANKS YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR GOD’S HOLY MERCY. SHE KNOWS IT WAS THE HAND OF JESUS WHICH STOPPED THE RAINS FROM FLOODING HER NEIGHBORHOOD AND KEPT THE ELECTRICITY ON THROUGHOUT!
