My tweet just now so you can see the map:

Dear Heavenly Father,
We humbly beseech you to guide and direct your people to the place you would have them to be at the time you would have them to be there. We ask for mercy and guidance and direction from above. We ask forgiveness for our sins and eyes to see your path and ears to hear your voice on matters all — both great and small. Please send help to those in need. Please provide all that is needed for people to see your hand in the matter. We know that our times are in your hands and you rule and reign in the heavenlies. May it be so here on this planet in this time and space. Deliver us from darkness and help us in our time of need. We reach for you and call out your name which is above all names even now and as we go. Keep our feet firmly planted in your path in your will and in your way.
Please send rain where it is needed, when it is needed. Please heal our land as you heal our hearts as we turn to you in Jesus precious name we pray.
II Chronicles 7:14
