The devastation of hurricanes in 2004 and 2005 is still felt. Although fewer than 40 were killed, 90% of the nations buildings were destroyed, and the agriculture and tourism sectors were virtually annihilated. Both sectors have been rebuilt, but the nation is deeply in debt as a result. Pray for ways to recover from this debt and to protect from such scale of damage in the future; and, above all, pray for a dependence on God rather than on material things.
For an additional Challenge for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
The Operation World book, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM provide far more information and fuel for prayer for the people of Grenada.
