AUSTRIALIA WILDFIRES

There's no end in sight to the catastrophic wildfires. May our prayers bring relief.

As the world watches in horror at the raging wildfires scorching sections of the whole country of Australia, forecasters say there is no end in sight. The fires have been caused by warmer temperatures, droughts, and unusually brisk winds, and the dry season isn’t expected to shift soon.

Let us turn to our merciful God and ask him to bring relief to Australia, calling on the aid of some of these holy intercessors.
