SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Dr. Ronnie Floyd, pastor of Cross Church and president of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, issues the following statement:
“As many of our fellow Americans brace themselves for the coming of Hurricane Florence, I want to urge Christians and churches to pray for the protection of life in the next several days. If there’s even the remotest possibility, let us ask God for a miracle — for this storm to pass without causing the catastrophic damage that’s been forecasted. But whatever the outcome, let us pray in confidence for the families who’re seeking shelter during the storm and for the first responders who will be away from their own families, ready to help anyone in need. To all who have evacuated and find themselves in the projected path of this storm: know that you’re in our prayers, but even more important, know that God is with all who call and rely on him.”
Dr. Ronnie Floyd is the senior pastor of Cross Church and president of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, which each year mobilizes millions of Americans to unified public prayer for the United States of America. He’s the author of “Living Fit: Make Your Life Count by Pursuing a Healthy You.” Follow him on Twitter @ronniefloyd.
