Residents deserve to know whether East Palestine is safe or not. Let’s pray for protection for Ohioans.

From Breitbart. Sens. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) directed a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OPEA) asserting it “does not appear that” the agencies or Norfolk Southern are monitoring for dioxins in East Palestine, Ohio.

Vance and Brown wrote the letter to U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan and OPEA Director Anne Vogel on Saturday, following the February 3 train derailment on a Norfolk Southern rail and a subsequent controlled burn of vinyl chlorine that was in multiple cars. …

The Ohio senators expressed gratitude for “the extensive air monitoring U.S. EPA has undertaken related to vinyl chloride and several known by-products that are produced when vinyl chloride burns including phosgene and hydrogen chloride,” before raising concerns about dioxins.

“However, following our visits to East Palestine this past week where we heard directly from members of the community, we remain concerned that it does not appear that the U.S. EPA, OEPA, or Norfolk Southern is texting for dioxins,” Vance and Brown continued …

The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) notes that dioxins are environmental pollutants with the potential to be “highly toxic” as “[e]xperiments have shown they affect a number of organs and systems.” …

Lord God please help us the Body of Christ and show us how we can help the people in Ohio. Provide for us the answers and provisions to help them, even opening our homes if need be. Please bring healing to the people, the animals, the water, land , birds, bugs, bees, plants, air and so on. We have nowhere to go but you for help. We place this whole situation in your hands. Please also bring peace to the residents in East Palestine and the surrounding cities and the cities just across the border from East Palestine. Whoever and wherever and whatever was affected by the derailment and the burning , Lord God, please bring healing. Please also help the citizens of the USA to REPENT. You said in your word that if we turn from our wicked ways, repent, that you would hear from heaven and heal our land. We need this literally right now and on so many other levels. We as a country are in desperate need. Help us to do what is right in your eyes. And thank you that You are a very present help in times of trouble. Thank you God. In Jesus name, Amen.

Dear LORD, thank You that You are the God who cares for us. We give You praise. What evil meant for harm, LORD bring forward Your goodness. Let the kindness shown by Donald Trump and others bear witness to You and give hope to the residents that they are not forgotten. Please let courage be shown and cowardice be rebuked. Grant healing and peace for the people of this community. Bring goodness out of these ashes, binding the hearts of the down-trodden in the hope found in Jesus. Reveal Your mighty plan in the midst of this difficult trial. Let Your mighty power be released through prayer and praise all across these communities. You came not to condemn this world, but instead that we might be saved. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

FATHER GOD thank YOU for President Trump who took clean bottles of water and cleaning supplies; and provided restaurant meals to all who wanted to eat to the people of East Palestine while the “fake” president joe biden went to Ukraine to check on his money laundering! Please Bless and Protect President Trump and his family and staff as he continues to care and Make America Great Again for all of us in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!

Father, thank you for the letter from Senators Vance and Brown. I pray the Spirit would convict the U.S. EPA, OEPA, or Norfolk Southern would text for dioxins. I pray that all those wrecked railroad cars would be moved away from the backyards of E. Palestine residents. Protect the resident. May all of the turn to you and find yoy as their shield and defender. We close the door to satan’s acts against them and open the door to the Holy Spirit’s power and love.

Lord, convict the hearts of the people who have the authority to fix and provide solutions to this problem with chemicals spills and the Ohioans who are suffering. Move them to act. IJN
