You may have seen a quick blurb on your local news about the wildfires in Texas.  It’s bad, my friends, very, very bad.  Please pray for the brave men and women who are fighting to put the fires out.  Pray for those who are temporarily displaced and for those who have lost their homes.  Pray for the communities who have lost their churches and their businesses. Most of all, pray for rain.
