The amount of deaths due to Victoria's bushfires is increasing every day. The total of dear souls that have passed away is now 181. Many more are expected to be found today and in the following days. The danger is not over as there are fires still burning out of control.
Arsonists have struck again last night starting more fires. Looters have also reared their ugly heads.
However in amongst this saddest, my fellow Australians have so far raised and donated 33.6 million dollars for the victims of the terrible fires. The amount is rising by the hour.
The following prayer was written by my son on Monday for inclusion in the class prayer book.
Our Heavenly Father,
Today we are sad for those who have lost their lives and belongings in the Victorian bushfires.
Please help these people deal with their sadness and help them rebuild there shattered lives.
Please give them strength and courage.
Please protect the CFS/CFA volunteers that are bravely fighting the fires and any other volunteers that are helping in any way.
Please hear our prayers for the safety of everyone.
In Jesus' name,
