Prayer for Victims of Hurricane Ian
Prayer for Victims of Hurricane Ian
Over the last few days, our nation has watched in horror as Florida and the surrounding areas were hammered by the wrath of Hurricane Ian. While the damages are still being assessed, would you join me today in praying a simple prayer of agreement for the victims of this wretched storm?
Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.
Pray this together with me, and with all of the other national intercessors in this community:
“Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name.
Abba Father, we lift up the terrible situation in Florida and the surrounding areas to You right now. Father, only You know the totality of the loss of life and livelihood that has happened in this area as a result of Hurricane Ian. All we know is that the devastation is terrible, Lord; and that we need Your help.
Father, we pray first that You would preserve the lives of any people who may be injured or even still trapped from this storm. Send rescuers to all those who need rescuing. If any people are still missing, let their locations be revealed—and let them be found safe, even if You have to work supernatural miracles of resurrection.
Father, we ask also that You would help the first responders and other emergency personnel who are working on the scene:
- Give them wisdom to know where to go and what to do.
- Provide enough fuel for their vehicles.
- Send plenty of skilled workers, pilots, firefighters, electrical workers, construction workers, and every other kind of responder that is needed right now.
- Give them words of knowledge about where people are trapped, and where people need help.
- Give them adequate rest when they have moments of downtime, so that they can safely do their jobs on their appropriate shifts.
Father, for the victims of this hurricane, we pray:
- Send them plenty of food and clean water right now.
- Help them find shelter.
- Restore safe electricity and running water.
- Restore cell service, the internet, and all other communication services.
- Help them locate their loved ones if members of families are separated.
- Give them wisdom, Father, to know how to recover from this storm and its effects.
- Help them to locate their belongings.
- Give them FAVOR with insurance companies and with FEMA, as needed, so they are fully compensated for their losses.
- Help them know where to go and what to do.
- Send materials and supplies that are needed to stabilize existing structures that can be saved, and to begin the rebuilding process.
Father, we ask that You would give wisdom, guidance, and direction to Governor DeSantis of Florida, as well as to all of the other governors and governmental staff at every level in the hurricane zone.
Show them how to coordinate disaster relief efforts. Protect them from fraud. Prevent anyone from using this storm for unholy political gain. Let truth, freedom, wisdom, and godly compassion reign in Florida right now. Provide all the needed staff, equipment, machinery, and resources needed to help those whose lives have been impacted by this storm.
Father, we ask also that You would supernaturally empower all the victims of Hurricane Ian to rebuild.
Let Your anointing to build come upon them. Give them favor as they work out all the details of rebuilding. We ask that You would see to it Yourself that the roads, bridges, causeways, tunnels, ports, and other necessary pieces of infrastructure are rebuilt safely and quickly.
Father, people in the state of Florida have honored You by loving righteousness and hating lawlessness. You also have many people in the state who have been contending for years for You to heal their land. We call upon You today, Abba, and we remind You of these things. And because they are Your people; because we are Your people; and because this is Your land, we humbly ask You to help, protect, and reward them now in their time of need.
Let the state of Florida—and every other area traumatized by this storm—become stronger, Father.
Let every person who was victimized by this storm be healed, saved, and safe. Together, we cry out: “RESTORE, Father, in the name of Jesus,” and we ask You to quickly restore every life, every limb, and every piece of property that has been ravaged by this storm—in Jesus’ name.
Holy Father, Your Word says that You will work out all things for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purposes. Do it, Father. Work out all the effects of this storm FOR THE GOOD of the people who were impacted.
We know not how You will do it, Father; but we know that You are faithful to perform Your Word.
Thank You, Abba Father. Thank You for helping our brothers and sisters in Florida, and in all the surrounding areas, in Jesus’ name. We bless You, and we give You praise.
In the marvelous and holy name of Jesus, amen and amen.”

I am.praying for the victims in the aftermath of Ian that they heal emotionally for the loss of family and property. They still need our prayers to have faith in God so they can get through the devastation. Let us all pray for them in Jesus name.
I pray everyday for safety and restoration of our beloved people of Florida. I ask our Lord to keep them safe and help them to find their needs. Our love and blessings to all families.
Lord, You know…you were here as my husband and I prayed through the night and day, watching the water creep closer and closer to our/Your home. I kept asking You…what had transpired between the US and Israel for this to happen? In my spirit, I knew that You had slightly lifted Your Hand of protection and that we had sinned in a closed room against Israel. We weathered the storm and our neighborhood became a temporary island. Against all odds, we had no internet service, and yet somehow I was able to access my email where my prayer stuff is. I was able to pray that day. I also get a newsletter about Israel…and one of the articles jumped out at me as You acknowledged my question with an answer through that newsletter. Joe Biden had struck a deal with Israel and Hesbala. He convinced Israel to divide a portion of land where they mine oil. Once again, our country convinced Israel to give up their land rights, and right here, FL was separated from the mainland by water. Father on behalf of the USA, we citizens of heaven yet here on earth repent for this iniquity. We did know about it, we regret it, and ask You to intervene in a way that the President will recognize his mistake and repent humbly on bended knee…but we stand in that gap until that happens. Please forgive our repentant hearts in Jesus’Name we pray…amen!
Florida will pray strength, peace, hope and love. Not Florida America and entire.
Lord protect the Floridians from further harm. Lift them up and help get through this massive disaster. Help them all keep their faith and stay strong in Jesus name. AMEN
Lord I pray for all those who have suffered from Hurricane Ian. I pray for peace for them as workers come to clean up the aftermath. I pray for them as well as some of the areas affected are in bad shape. Give these people confidence that the areas will be cleaned up and the funds that are needed will be there. I pray that food and water will be quickly available for all and that those affected will be able to check out their homes and make plans for the future. Amen
I agree wholeheartedly with the above prayers and couldn’t pray any better. Thank you for your prayers.🙏🙏🙏
Lord, the devastation here in Florida and other places has been horrible but I am asking that when we look back at this one, at Ian, we will not only see devastation but we will see the meaning behind the name Ian, God is gracious. Lord, we have been so blessed, thank you for for Your many ways of grace, from Gov DeSantis declaring emergency early so people could get medications early, to him and Biden actually working together for the good of the people suffering, that feels like a miracle!
Praise Your gracious name Lord Jesus❣️
