I am passing along a special prayer request from the Native Americans, Apache, Navajo and Zuni tribes.
The Largest Forest Fire in Arizona History!
You may have seen on the news that the Wallow fire in Northern Arizona is still uncontrollable and spreading. The fire has destroyed everything in its path, over 1/2 million acres so far, the largest fire in Arizona history. Please join us in a tribal prayer to help the firefighters and all involved. Pray so the winds stop and the rains start (without lightning please). We want to pray for the safety of all. Ask for heavenly walls to protect our land and animals from fire. All the choppers, manpower, planes, and bulldozers are not enough, they need our help. We are one Nation as Natives and our traditional prayers to the Creator as Natives can be pretty powerful; not only are our tribal lands at stake (White Mountain & San Carlos Apaches, possibly Zuni, and some Navajo areas), but our non-native friends also need our help. Please let us all connect our minds, hearts and our prayers across the miles and pray. Wherever you are and whatever you have plan please stop for a few minutes and raise your hands to the Creator to ask for help. If your spiritual preference is not traditional—pray with us in however you talk to the Creator.
Thank you, Dorothea Stevens, San Carlos Apache Nation
I hope you can take a moment to prayer or visualize the winds rising up to search for rain clouds, who can offer their cooling rain. To ask a fire that is out of control to give its power to the earth and restore balance. And please ask the Spirit for its help. Together, we can make a difference.
