Pray for {Oklahoma}

Today, the entire nation is praying for Oklahoma while they deal with the effects of yesterday's tornado. 
 
A tornado ripped through Moore, OK yesterday afternoon, destroying dozens of buildings and homes, including two elementary schools.  
 


 The tornado is reported to have been 2 miles wide - y'all, that's HUGE! 
The National Weather Service put the tornado at EF-4, with winds up to 200mph. 
 
The death toll had been reported to be at 51, with twenty of those being children.  However, the death toll has been revised down to 24, and at least 240 people are injured.   
 
 
If you or anyone you know are looking for loved ones, you can call the patient care hotline at moore Medical Center: 405.307.1366. 
 
 
Please, if you can donate, do! 
The best way to help is to donate at RedCross.org or text REDCROSS to 90999.  $10 will be donated to redcross and be added to your cell phone bill. 
 
The Salvation Army has mobilized a number of emergency relief services in Oklahoma, including Moore, to dispense food, hydration and emotional support to first responders and survivors.  Donate online or text STORM to 80888 to contribute $10 to the Salvation Army's relief efforts.  You can also call to make a donation at
1-800-SAL-ARMY.

Today, I'm praying for everyone affected by this natural disaster. 
 
Today, pray for Oklahoma.
