On April 20th there was an explosion on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico which resulted in the death of 11 people. After the explosion, one of the fail safes which was to protect against spills apparently failed. Since then, gallon after gallon of oil has been spilling into the waters uncontrolled. Containment efforts to date have largely failed. People have died and been injured. Incomes have been hurt. Animals have suffered and been killed. Beaches and marshes are damaged. In the midst of one of the worst ecological disasters ever, we turn to the God who created, sustains, and will redeem all things. We trust that He is in control and able to act. So it is that in the face of disaster we turn in prayer to our Lord who is in control. Oil Spill Prayer is a place where you can commit to praying and share your prayers with others. Please join with Christians along the gulf coast and around the world as we pray that God act in the midst of tragedy.
