Haitians move boat to safety

“How’s Haiti, after Hurricane Irma?” I’m being asked.  The hurricane moved a bit north of Haiti and so missed the really bad stuff.  Lots of wind and rain, but I have heard of no deaths, and no destruction in the Hospital area.    However, there has been severe flooding and loss of crops.  With all this, there is the serious risk of another cholera outbreak.  See ITV early evening News Sunday 10th.  Nevertheless, all this could have been far far worse – we are truly thankful to God.

Answer to prayer?  I think not.  If the hurricane is not going to hammer Haiti, it will blast somewhere else in its travels.  It is a fallen and incomplete world, and while there is mainly order, chaotic events like hurricanes happen.  Our standing before God and prayer is what counts.

So what use are our prayers?
