Thanks so much for the many prayers and concern. Houston was blessed but there is still much devastation in and around the city and surrounding cities and towns. Much damage was done. Many homes are without electricity but we do have clean water,food,generators are working. Much assistance and help is available. Praise God! I was hit but did not receive any water damage or other fatalities. But this is not the case with many others.
Thanks again for your prayers. Ike was very angry but God did intervene.
Our God is mighty and strong!

I just arrived in San Antonio Texas this Tuesday so that I would have a computer and phone to use at my in-laws for business. The other mod left for Katy Texas at the western edge of the storm. In my neighbor, every fifth house had a tree on top of it or in their yard and we are 70 miles north of Galveston. South of us places are still flooded. Everyone at CNET did fine and our computers were in Dallas so were uneffected. Still no electricity or gas in most areas of this city of 4 million. If you can locate gas, the lines are 1 to 10 hours long. I was blessed that one of only 3 grocery stores that opened in a 100,000 population area was at the end of my street. Keep the city in prayers as this is a war zone.

Moderator ... How are the other Mods, as I think you have several?

Crazy storm! The eye passed within fifty miles of our home in Dallas with little notice. However my sister in Cincinatti Ohio has been without power for three days as IKE collided with a cold front and did significant damage up North. Just watching that thing pass by our home made me contemplate Revelations and the power of God.
Awesome is the only word that would be appropriate.

Moderator- I have been praying for you and your family and for all of the people who have been hit by this hurricane. How are you doing? We last heard from you on the 14th. Can you check in with us please?

I will continue to intercede for you and your family and friends and everyone in Houston and Galveston and anyone else who has been directly effected by this Hurricane. Lord I ask you to supply all of their needs in Christ Jesus and I ask you to safely return them to their homes, bless them Lord, send angels to do things for them Lord, provide for them, and keep them safe Lord, in Jesus name I ask.

Amen! Glad you are okay, soooo sorry about all the damage over there but glad you're safe, God bless you--and thank you for all you do. :)
---Mary on 9/16/08

We are and will continue to pray for your safety and encouragement. Thanks for all you have done for me and others.
God Bless.

Moderator prayers are for all of Houston, and of course Galveston glad to see that your family is ok...God Bless!
---Ruben on 9/15/08

Moderator I praise God He brought CNet and you through the storm My prayers were also answered in Galveston. A young couple had bought a new home and had to leave the womans car in Galveston on the driveway in front of garage when they left. A friend checked the house and outside all was ok,couldn't get in,but the car hadn't moved and was fine. I will be praying for timely restoration for all who lost something along the Coast. So sorry. God Bless

I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and everything went east of us. We received some really nice rain - nothing at all like we had been told to expect - the winds were not bad either. Today, it is beautiful and only going to be about 80 degrees for a high. However, there are many people all over the country that have been effected by this storm, although, the worst was Galveston and Houston areas. Thank you for your prayers and keep praying.

I will keep Texas in my prayers.

I live in Florida, and when it comes to before hurricanes, I am usually hesitant to pray for us because it means the hurricane may be steered away from us only to hit someone else. Just a weird thought. I know it probably does not work that way. I don't have any problems praying for the cleanup after a hurricane has hit though. I do pray that it will be gentle or miss others though when the news says it is headed their way.

I'm from a different coastal city in Texas. We were told to evacuate and I did, but we had little damage. I think prayers WERE answered for the city of Houston. Their evacuation was managed well!. Thank goodness it wasn't like Rita, with most of the city in a traffic jam! There are always "hold outs" who won't evacuate... there were some in Galveston this time, but the death toll was not as bad as predicted.

Hi Everyone,

Please keep my church in prayer. Hurricane Ike destroyed our building.

Hurricane Ike pretty much destroyed our building. The roof has come off, there is water everywhere, the carpets are ruined, the sewage is not working, and much more. Effective 2 days ago, we no longer have a church building. Currently my Pastor and the members are looking for a place to meet on Sundays. We might have to rent a hotel meeting room for the time being or meet at people's houses. As you can see, we are in need of help.

Any suggestions would be good. Thanks.
---fiona5666 on 9/15/08

Thanks for keeping us up to date. Prayers go out for you all.

It's 12:30 A.M. central time and the wind is starting to pick up and it's beginning to lightly rain with the sky turning bright bursts of orange as the lighting strikes at a distance. The wind is now more steady with strong gusts. The electricity now acts like it wants to go out. Going to bed now and setting the alarm for 5:00 A.M. If you don't hear from me by 6:00 A.M. or so you know that the electricity from my remote location to blog went out.

Just went outside with the boys again at 10:30 central time. Still to my surprise no rain yet, but wind gusts to around 35 mph or so. The traffic lights are flashing now at the intersection.
---Moderator on 9/12/08

Moderator,I posted on Sept Blog for prayer for all of y'all,your families and homes so I have been praying for you all for several hours already. I have always prayed God dissipate the storm and I have seen Him do it,I pray that for y'all and all areas involved. We are near Ft Hood and expecting 40 to 50 mile an hr winds gusting to 70. We have had worse with thunderstorms here but you never know which wind will do damage. God Be With Y'all and Bless and protect you all.

After previous disasters, posters here would ask if God were punishing the sites of such calamties (such as New Orleans).

Think--If CN is knocked out, would this mean that God is punishing CN?

The answer to this question should give the answer to similar ones.
