The lawsuit cites 58 counts against Norfolk Southern for violating several federal and state environmental laws including state hazardous waste, water pollution control, solid waste and air pollution control laws.

Lord God please bring hope, strength and endurance to the people in East Palestine, Ohio. I can’t imagine what they are going through mentally, physically and financially 😔! Since the train derailment the government needs to to take full responsibility of the crisis! Through these horrible times, the Lord Almighty is always in control and prayers are essential 🙏!

Father, thank you for what the state is doing. I pray for East Palestine and those injured by this train derailment. Touch their hearts with seeking for you. Draw them close. We ask for a miracle for them and their coummunity. From Romans 15:13: May the God of hope fill them with joy and peace as they trust in you that they may be filled with Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

During this time of great exposure & accountability, God is holding The railway accountable. Two companies detected the hot bearing on the tanker car. If an automatic warning was sent to the train engineer, HE had the responsibility to stop the train, as soon as the hot bearing was detected. This must not be covered up, but accountability brought forth.
Exodus 16:25 O Lord, just as You showed Moses a tree at Marah, and he threw it into the bitter water, We release our faith for healing of the contaminated water at E.palastine Ohio In the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen, so be it.

This has the handprint of the fake Biden administration all over it. Their lack of concern is evidence of their involvement in this horrible derailment. Another disaster for which they take no responsibility; much like Covid, Afghanistan withdrawal, and continued massive overspending.

Lord, I pray for your intervention in the lives of all who have been affected by covid and the chemicals. Miraculously protect the folks in Palestine and affected areas. Lord, please replace those who have treasonously taken charge of this country with God-fearing men and women, and being the USA back to your Godly beliefs which is the basis of our Constitution.

Father, there is nothing impossible with You. Lord, touch the water and the land with Your power and cleanse it. Blow Your breath on the area and on the people there. Create a pristine environment once again. Cleanse people’s lungs. Cleanse their homes and businesses. Lord, we forgive those who were negligent and destructive in this situation. Now, Lord, help them to do what is right for the community. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
