anyone else being threatened by these Oregon fires!
Update: The sheriff said they don't have to leave yet. There are 10 fires in their area. They will let them know if they need to leave, they are packed and ready to go if they get the word but for right now, they are praying that they will get the fires under control. There is very little wind and that is working in their favor.
Almighty and eternal God, we ask Your protection against destroying fire. Keep our homes and buildings and woods and fields safe from this scourge.
Give us, too, we humbly pray You, a saving fear of the fires of passion, and the help of Your grace to control them. Help us also to fear the fires of hell, that we may always keep away from serious sin, and live lives of goodness and virtue, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
